WW2 US infantry weapons article

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

Some images of a article that I made using my uniforms, equipment and weapons for the big brazilian weapons Magazine called "Magnum"*.

 

* #77 - Feb/Mar 2002

 

Excuses, the text is in Portuguese, but the images are in a universal language. ;)

 

I wait that all enjoy it ... :unsure:

 

Best regards from Brazil,

 

Ricardo.

Hi QM,

 

Thank you!

 

The GI Guns article it was made using parts of my collection and some weapons of the Military Museum of the CMS (Military Command of the South) and the used parts in the article of Cesar (CCMAX) it was of the collection of it and the Museum of the BEF of São Paulo.

 

The times we have luck in Brazil... and find some here itens of the FEB in antiques fairs or antiques shops, bu ... the great majority we obtain direct of the veterans or familires.

 

It is interesting to give one looked at of time in when of brazilian ebay called "Mercado Livre" (www.mercadolivre.com).

 

PS. I never look an foreigner complain of the brazilian womens or our food. :D hehehehehehe

 

Muito obrigado! thumbsup.gif

Ricardo,

Boa tarde! e obrigado. I may have another reason to visit your country. My friend lives in Sao Paulo. Maybe I'll bring a few donations for the museum.

How are the gun laws there?

What a great country, and it's people!

Good luck, and good hunting!

Dear QM,

 

Thank you very much!!

 

All donations are VERY Welcome.

 

Please, the contact of Museum is:

 

museumilitar@terra.com.br

 

- with Lt. Nestor or Lt. Noris. Thanks!!! thumbsup.gif

 

The gun laws in Brazil has one of the most rigid gun laws in the world.

 

Since 1936 all firearms must be registered. No handguns with ammunition more powerfull than .38 Special (9mm Short for pistols) are allowed for civilians. Rifles and carbines are only allowed if they fire handgun ammunition (the only center fire rifle cartridge allowed is the vintage .44-40 WCF).

 

No center fire semi-automatic long gun (rifled or smooth bore) is permited. Black powder muzzle loading guns are considered firearms like any other and subject to the same rules.

 

A Brazilian citizen must not have, at any given time, more than two handguns, two rifled long guns and two shotguns. Only shooters or collectors registered within the Brazilian Army may have more guns than this figures.

 

Citizens are not allowed to buy more than one gun per year.

 

Reloading is permited only for shooters belonging to a shooting club and reloadind supplies are strictly controlled by the Brazilian Army. Only trough the club is possible to buy reloading supplies.

 

If one is caught with a gun without a permit, it doesn't matter if it was being carried or just transported (a registered gun unloaded and locked inside a box, for instance) - it is a crime and one can face two years in jail for that (four years if it was a forbidden gun).

 

Permits for transportation must be obtained at the central police office downtown and it usually takes a week to be ready.

 

Officialy carry permits do exist, but is very difficult to get one (there is a black market for concealed carry licences).

 

Gun stores are not allowed to sell second hand firearms and taxes on guns sales are the highest in the world (81%).

 

Waiting periods for registration average 30 days, but in Rio de Janeiro state it could reach 3 month.

 

Obviously, all these controls have lead for a huge black market. Brazil is one of the few places in the world where one can buy an illegal handgun cheaper than in gun stores (about one third of the price for a Brazilian made revolver).

 

In the neighboring countries there are gangs specialised in smuggling guns through Brazilian borders. Brazilian drug gang members carry AR15, M16, SIG 551, HKG3 and AK47 - they have no problems in gettings these weapons. It is quite common to see them using tracer bullets in their shootings (also forbidden for Brazilian citizens).

 

Note in a UN study Brazil was top of the list for firearm-related deaths... :(

 

A true nightmare!

 

Best regards (Abraços),

 

Ricardo.
