I have a soft spot for historical weapons. Lately, Ive been grabbing German pistols with the waffenamts on them. Im no fan of the Third Reich, but no WW2 collection is complete without arms from them. Still need a Luger (I have a Hi-power, but its pre-war. My grandfather took it off of a German in France). Ive only shot the P-38s so far, and they are SWEET. Really looking forward to the FN 1922, as its quite an interesting pistol

The problem is not guns! It's hearts without God, homes without discipline, schools without prayer, and courts without justice. ~unknown

 

"A general dissolution of the principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy.

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but once they lose their virtue, they will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." ~ Samuel Adams 1779 to James Warren

 

Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. ~Daniel Webster

 

How much can you put in your signature before it becomes too long??

Polish FB Radom VIS P35. A favorite of the Waffen SS on the eastern front. The Germans took over production during occupation. They moved the factory and started making them at Steyr in Austria near the end of the war as well. Great pistols

In the back of my mind, I kinda thought that some German officers or artillery crews sometimes carried C96's......

 

Or was that from a really badly made movie?

Some did, but the P-38 and Luger took over for the most part. It was used by some Soliders in WW2, but not as widespread

You need a repro 45acp Luger entered in the RFP around the time the 1911 was selected. Not WWII, but still cool.

That would be a MUST buy, even a repro
