  1. Sarge! I saw a thing on one of the TV channels that talked about the "ping" of the Garand getting folks killed. Can't remember what show it was, tho...
  2. Ah, Good to hear from ya, Sarge! I do hope that your ticker's g2g! I have discovered hog hunting, and have been walking right past the Bambis! I have gotten into the AR's, again, due to my neck and deminished left arm. They sure are alot easier to carry when in the "thickies" where the hawgs live. Good on ya for fixin' that PSO. They can be a handful for weakening, half century-old eyes. hehe Lotsa small pieces parts!

    Sorry I havent returned your message for so long. Moved to NY then have been in the hospital for awhile. Feel like I have been paroled, missed the boards! The ticker wasnt working so well. Used my PSL to deer hunt, didnt even see one to shoot. Took the PSO I have apart and fixed the inner mechanism, it fixed the slanted reticle and shoots like a champ! Hope your deer hunting went better!
  4. Oh, and that Luger? ALL matching numbers! ALL OF THEM!!!! Dammit!
  5. Yup, he also got my m94 Winchester, my .22's and my shotguns, as well as my adopted brother's guns. But I got all of those back. He swiped them all while I was away in the Army. Oh well, family will crack ya harder than anyone else, in some cases.

    Wow! That sucks. When I joined the Army all my guns I had grew legs and walked away. Nobody saw or heard anything. Pretty sure it was my stepbrothers.
  7. I hear ya. I inherited a P08 Luger from my Step Grandfather, but my uncle stole it while was away in he army. He never had any interest in it til he heard what they were worth. He sold it, I am told.

    Asked my grandfather about what he carried in WWII. He carried a greasegun and a .45. He told me he had a luger for awhile that he got of a dead German Officer.
  9. I have heard that mentioned every single time the Garand or "32 rifle" was ever talked about. Go figure? I would imagine that your Grandfather had either a 1911a1 or an M3 Greasegun, since he was a Tanker. Garands don't really fit tanks. I can specifically relate T-Sgt Martin Thompson of the Rainbow Division. He told me that he had 6 Germans tied down. When they heard the zing, they all stood up and fired at him. He was hit in the forehead and lost a portion of his right frontal lobe. He always blamed that zing. He said that they loved that "32 rifle", but it would get you killed, if you weren't "particular, about reloading." He told me that they would "cover each other" so that they never "ran out at the same time." I dunno, I wasn't there. I have to accept what the old-timers told me about it. It still beats the hell out of a 98k.

    I will ask my Grandfather about that when I see him. Dont know how much he may know or if he had that happen to him, he spent the whole war in Tanks.
