    Mine was back from 2007 to 2011 and a Norwegian forest cat. She came with a woman that moved in and decided I was her mate and she'd found her retirement home. She was certainly the best part of...

    Excellent start and definitely the right pistol. I used to keep a Beretta 70/71 on hand to teach women shooting. Small enough to handle and operate themselves...always got the same reaction first...

    A bit of time ago when I had a full US military collection, I'd have taken that too. Just for the oddity. Bannerman was the MAN when it came to surplus. He dealt everything...

    We didn't get them when the contract for the others came along, too cheap... We tried other things instead. Took until mid '80's to get them on our SARP and then all the old guys were asking,...

    I too expect the originator painted it for a reason. Wonder if it's an accumulation of Greek return parts? We don't have that many floating around here...

    Yes, used and owned them all too. Yes, a Thompson is heavy. Definitely not for everyone. Lots of today's young soldiers would faint to have to carry an FN but, you know as well as I how superb...

    There are a few places like that. People left and the destruction barely even got cleaned up let alone rebuilt.

    I remember the stories you told us, you and I were discussing it too.



    I agree, had an original M1 for some time and a 1928 for twenty two years. Shot it all I could...

    Yes, I had one. Mine was a Guide Lamp but I forget what serial number. I had ten mags and would load them and empty them in about fifteen minutes. So much fun...

    For the two members and others in future take note, I never bought one in Hawaii. That's not my statement, if you look back you see I'm entering another's statement. I was the one saw only one in...
