a National Guard unit that did, indeed, fight at Ardennes-Alsace.

My PANG AAA unit was almost attached to it, but then, along came the Korean Police Action.

morning brothers

Still morning mt time anyway.. I don't think Sam will mind if we hi jack this for an informal get together..

Mike, my guess is since the patch is the only real color in the pic its a unit painting.. Hard to tell where Sam picked it up, as it could have come from anywhere on the net..

Pard, Hamp you two tickled me talking about badgirls pm's.. I've never gotten one from her.. suppose she thinks we really look like our avatars..

Whats everybody up to this morning.. Gloria took a run up to walmart, and im just kicking, a couple of chores, but an easy day planed..Still shaking this cold.. Bub's settled in at the "home" and i really do think its going to be a short recovery..

lurking around here and at gunbroker looking for my next victum err
rifle, I am looking at Japanese Ariskas, that would make a nice addition.

Yeah, that badgirl is a trip, consider yourself lucky with the lack of pm's
you can spend days trying to decipher them.

Great news on Gary bud!

its a 7.7 i think... anyway i've never understood why its not as popular as the K98's or Nagants, SMLE's, or any of ours.. Theres a shit pot on the surplus mkt..but i have no experiance with people talking about, or owning them..

Ariskas are

going for cheap, not sure of the condition of the bores etc. apparently
Ariska sellers on gunbroker are not as forthcoming with info on
condition as Nagant sellers.

opperable weapons,

I don't believe in wall hangers unless maybe I came into possession
of something that was very rare, then maybe. I have shot off a couple
of emails requesting info, we will see what they have to say.
