    The Marine Corp

    Hey guys! That's right. That was the Marine Corps Anthem and from the halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli, we'll talk a little bit about that. But I'm going to talk about US Marine Corps pistols that are marked US Marine Corps because they're very, very rare and I know almost nothing about them. 

     

    This video was requested

    But I had a local guy who stopped by and said, hey, I have a couple of US Marine Corps guns, you should do a video on it. So I guess

    Welcome back to Walk-In Wednesday

    Hey guys, and welcome to one of our Walk-In Wednesdays. Actually, a lot of guns came in the door, I want to tell you about these, but I first want to tell you a dirty little secret.

     

    Remember our Patreon Program

    Actually, it's not a secret; I did a video a while back about how you can support our channel through the Patreon Program. There's a link here, and you could check that out if you're interested in becoming a patron. But I hesitate to do that because obviously, I don't want to spend my time begging you for money. It does help support our channel but we also sell guns at a profit. So we appreciate your support.

    Guess what we have today

    Hey guys, I'm excited about today's video because I'm going to be doing a video on the guns of the OSS. Now this is not something I knew a lot about. Shout out to Ed who is an OSS collector, he stopped by and said, you really should do a video on this. And I agreed. So I'm learning with you. He gave me this book. I don't own it. I don't know that it's available. You can check Amazon. It does say $59.95. But I read through this book and I'm basically going to go through what I learned about guns of the OSS. So I'm excited to do that with you. Thank you Ed for bringing these items by. 

     

    We have Merch Available

    Guess what I've got today? 

    Hey guys, today I'm going to show you a really iconic shotgun with a very interesting story. So this is a Model 12 Trench Shotgun. It came to us at the Louisville Gun Show, a guy brought it over and said, hey, would you sell it for me? I took a look at it. It's a pretty average condition Trench Shotgun.

    A Walk-in Wednesday Quickie

    Hey guys! Guess what, today is Wednesday. And so I have a walk-in Wednesday for you but also a quickie. I'm just going to show you this one gun because it's extremely rare, and it's something way outside my wheelhouse. 

     

    Way outside my Wheelhouse

    This is a Smith and Wesson Registered Magnum. Now, I had never heard that term before. Actually, in my vast collection I've never owned a Smith and Wesson; we've obviously sold them on our website, but I've never owned a Smith and Wesson. Not been something I've really studied but this came in. The owner who sent us this on consignment mentioned that these can sell for $40,000 or more. So that piqued my interest. I thought what's so special. So here's what's so special about this.

    Controversial Lugers 

    Hey guys, today I want to talk to you about a couple of Luger's that are really rare and somewhat controversial. We're going to be taking a closer look at these two variations. One of them is that KL Luger maybe you've never even heard about it, but it has an interesting history and some theories about it. And the other, I know you can't see, it's a World War I Luger, but it has a Death's Head that was added post factory. So we're going to talk about the controversy about the Death's Head Luger. 

     

    The Buchenwald Gun

    But before I do, I want to apologize to some of our viewers from outside the United States. The last video I did was about the Buchenwald Gun. You can still go back and watch the original, we put the link on here. There was the original Buchenwald
