US Victory Museum

WOW! ummmm, did I forget to mention WOW!!!!!!!!

 

Is that the barrel of an M18 that the hygrometer is sitting upon?

 

I'm in the process of doing a restoration (finding a few missing

parts and replacing some that have cosmetic defects) on a

between the wars (WWII & Korea) Firestone M18 RR. (Title II of

course!)

 

I'm glad that someone else's house looks like a museum.

I thought I was the only one who lived like that. Only my

closest friends have ever been invited over and they think I'm

seriously abnormal because I DON'T have several hundred cases

of munitions stacked up on the floor of my living room, like they do.

That's what garages are for. My house looks like a museum, theirs

looks like Picatinny Arsenal.

 

I love your friend's collection.

 

P.S.

Does he have any kids? Is he looking to adopt?

Great collecttion. To be more accurate, the WW1 gas mask bags on the chests should be urned around to their proper positions with the flaps opening outward.

 

 

I already told him... but WWI is not his main topic

BtW, Divisional patches ( DUI) were not seen at the front, they came later on in occupied Germany.

To answer another question.. he is in his late forties but used up a great deal of energy and a lot of money in his collection.

Yeah, last time I saw Philippe a few years ago, he was very serious with this gal- probably the one he's married to now. I first met him many years ago at the Houston show when I lived out there, where I sold him an Army 2-piece camo suit. And I remember Michel; he used to set up at the Great Western Show in L.A. with Brooks Bush.

Great stuff, I used to go to Arlon and Ciney to the shows when I was stationed in Europe. I love the gun laws there, "demil" if required is cut the bolt face off and plug the end of the barrel. At one point they were selling like new M1A1 Thompsons for less than $600. ATF in the US would have a cow over that!
