    Default My trip to Russia Pics

    Ok I do not know if this is allowed but I am just going to post the pics of all of the weapons, there are Kalashnikov's, Sniper's and Mosin's and I thought everyone would like to see them all so instead of going to different boards and posting I thought I would put them all here. I hope its ok? The first set of pics is from Izhevsk Kalashnikov museum..

    Good stuff. Thanks for posting. If there were any PEM side mounts at the Victory Park Museum, I am especially interested. There were none in 2006, just a mount and scope. Lots of MP/stg 44s though.

    Cool

    Very cool Milz! Thanks for posting these and I look forward to the next round of pics. I think the wife & I will be visiting the Izhevsk museum in the next year or so. Glad you're back in the States safe and hopefully you've experienced some actual customer service since you've been back.

    This next set is from one of the many Metro sections in Moscow, these are bronze statues and after we were standing and looking we noticed many of them had polished spots from ppl touching them so we stood around watching for awhile and saw ppl stop and rub or just touch as walking by and I saw some that looked
    like they would stop and say a prayer. It was actually quite moving to see and be a part of. I would say that at least 1 out of 10 ppl that walked by touched the statues in a way that seemed to me like they were saying thanks to all of those who lost there lives in the war.

    Hey you guys are quite welcome!! I almost forgot about these next pics. My girlfriend was showing me the family photo album and I snapped some copies. The first one is her uncle on the left and who knows on the right, second one her father said was his cousin and he died in Stalingrad, next two I am not sure who they are. These photos kinda got to me a bit because you always see stuff like this on the internet but when her father showed me the one of the cousin it reminded me that every Russian family lost someone in the war and it is still very real for them to this day.

    The metro is clean, efficient, well designed, artistic, historical and full of beautiful women. Nice pics.

    You will see a bunch of PUs in the museums and an occasional PE top mount. PEM side mount snipers are very uncommon in the museums, in fact I encountered zero. You will see arms from other countries, and that is a nice Polish display including a Polish licensed BAR. Japanese weapons are quite common, which was a surprise to me. Also a little surprising was the fact that a large number of German pistols were credited to the ownership of high ranking Soviet officiers. Apparently capture and use by high ranking officiers was not discouraged and quite common.

    The girl in the sixth pic of the bronze statues is my girlfriend, we got some good news while we were there, her application for a visa has been approved pending a US Embassy interview, with any luck she will get to witness the rockets red glare over Lake Michigan on the 4th of July,,,

    And she could shoot a real Mosin which might be hard to do in Russia!

    I tried to make that happen for her at the Kalashnikov museum but the guy there wouldnt let her so he gave her a shorter version of the SVD in bolt action with no instructions, same bullet but shorter barrel, hmmmm, should have given her a M38 instead

These photos kinda got to me a bit because you always see stuff like this on the internet but when her father showed me the one of the cousin it reminded me that every Russian family lost someone in the war and it is still very real for them to this day.

    Amazing pictures! Thanks so much for sharing. You nailed it on the head how real it is for famalies. I still have my grandfathers RATION CARDS for WW2. My wifes Hungarian grandparents still tell me stories about how they escaped the fall of their country just before the soviet soldiers came running and gunning in. A lot of their family left for war, but never came back. Amazing how quickly we all forget this was only a couple of generations ago.....

    Bugged by the presence of an Enfield (not sure if you mean the SMLE or the P14 in the same pic), but not the Thompson, Reising, various Browning MG's and that Polish BAR?

    Congrats Milz and best of luck to her with the interview and physical. The two of you have got some real challenges ahead. I went through the same process about 4 years ago. If you have any questions about it, don't hesitate to PM me. There are some great online resources that my wife used both here in the US and in Russia so if you're interested let me know. Also, don't believe the govt paperwork that they will give her in the embassy that says "don't worry about getting a SS#, one will be assigned and sent to you within 6-8 weeks after arrival in the US." It's pure BS and cost me a huge headache. Go to your local SS Office and get her a number. Take care and keep the great pics coming!

    Thanks,a really great series of pics and also good luck with the process. The bronze of the soldier and the dog looked to be well loved by the people. Girl friend is a keeper too.

    Sorry, but I think the guy who died in Stalingrad wears a postWW2 belt with big buckle and track behind him is postwar. Maybe he died in Stalingrad after war?

    It could be the wrong guy, the father spoke absolutely no English and my gf struggles with it, he might not be the cousin and I didnt want to ask too many questions about it and he didnt know I was snapping pics of his pics, I didnt want to trivialize the situation with too many questions and you may be correct that he died after the battle because all he said was he died in Stalingrad and I assumed he meant during the war.

    Before the '68 riots, Ft McHenry here in Baltimore had a fantastic display of period hand and shoulder weapons. Also the Smithsonian in DC had a display of military uniforms and equipment dating from the French & Indian wars to the "Korean Conflict" with weapons of the time. Sadly neither have been displayed since.
