That is true.
I remember stories about WW1 Martinis' and Mausers' foregrips heating up so bad, soldiers would have to cover them in dirt just to cool them off a little bit. And that is after 30-40 shots fired.

I'm not feeling well so I had to postpone my second visit to the museum. My apologies.
Until then, here's some more fancy gun pictures from the museum's first floor.
I understand most of these firearms were gifts to statesmen and major military figures. Enjoy:

This was a gift from Nikolai Podgorny to Turkish Army Chief of Staff in the sixties. It is obviously a Soviet firearm.
I seriously need help with this one. No idea what it is:




This one looks familiar:



A gold plated Astra:

It's a Russian Vostok Margolin MT .22 target pistol. The one below it is a Croatian PHP.

I thought it looked familiar. It's Princess Leia's pistol from Star Wars.

I will go back to the museum to take more pictures. Especially of the medieval weapons. I can gladly share the link to those pics.

Multi barreled pistols: I really like the double barrel setup.
Awesome presentation! Will look forward to your next trip there.

The gold thing is a POF (Pakistani Ordnance Factory) SMG-PK. It appears they sell them in gold, but maybe the scrollwork is custom?
I'm not a fan of scrollwork like that, but the pattern on the Astra looks really good.

How to make a H&K gun more hard to obtain: Gold Plate it.

More pics.

A custom made pistol. Started out in Istanbul TR, completed in Poland. It's probably 7.65mm:
