Be sure to watch the Luger’s video

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday and this one's going to be a quickie because I don't have much to say about this. I already did a full video on Luger's and all the variations including some early variations. There's a link below if you want to take a look at that. https://youtu.be/hnmlS2IiPZM. Those of you who already saw that video recognize this right away. 

    Quick Overview of the 1900 Model 

    Let's do a quick overview. This is an early Luger, extended barrel, happens to be in .30 caliber. So with this crest, we know it's Swiss. We also know that it has the grip safety and a dish toggle. Dish toggle would mean that it has to be

Quickie on the US Air Force Survival Weapon

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday. And today its going to be a quickie because I just have one gun that I want to show you but it's worthwhile because it's a very rare gun. This is actually, you can see it marked right here on the holster, US Air Force. Some of you will recognize it, it's a very rare gun and again that's why I just thought well I'll just do a quick video about this survival weapon.

  4. Rare Russian Contract Colt 1911

     

    Russian Contract Colt 1911

    This 1911 Colt got over 200,000 views!

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday. I have a really cool gun to show you, a very rare gun, old workhorse as you can see. This is a 1911 Colt, you recognize it right away. Except, it's very rare because it was issued to the Russian government in 1916. This gun really reminds me of a video that we just did recently about a Springfield 1911 that was purported to be a battlefield pickup. I think a lot of you didn't buy the story but it's an old workhorse as well. Now that gun, as ugly as it was, I know people get offended when I say guns are ugly, beat up. As beat up and old, kind of like me, as beat up and old as it was that had over 200,000 views within the first two weeks. So I’m hoping we can break that record w

    How I got General Joseph Stilwell Jr’s personal Side Arm?

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday. Today I have a gun that I've actually owned for over a year. I'll assume it came in on a Wednesday. But I've owned this gun for over a year and it's the personal side arm issued to General Joseph Stilwell. Now when I saw this gun coming up on auction, I did buy it at an auction, gun auction, and I saw it coming up, I got all excited. Because as soon as I heard the name General Joseph Stilwell, I recognized the name right away and I said, I know the guy that carried this pistol. And it turns out it was Joseph Stilwell Jr.

    Yes! I’m obsessed with German Guns, So Don't Jud

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday. As you can see right in front of me are some 1902, very rare 1902 Luger Carbines. Now I just did a video on commercial guns and many of you watched that and you can see that I had an array. It was one collection of commercial guns starting with 1900, went all the way up to World War II in 1940s. One of the guns not included in that collection was a Luger Carbine. Now I have not owned too many of these, in fact, I think only one has gone through our shop. But this week we got two Luger Carbines, both of them are model 1902s. Why don't you come a little closer and let's take a look at these.

    Hey guys and welcome to another Walk-in Wednesday. Today I'm going to talk about a gun that is way outside my wheelhouse but it's so unique I thought I'd bring it to you. Before I do that, you'll notice right away we have a brand new set. We've been doing YouTube videos for about a year. Early on, I didn't really understand the value of YouTube videos but my younger generation crew talked me into it. But since then I'm a believer. So after one year of doing this, we have done over 100 videos, we have over 32,000 subscribers and we have several videos that have approached the half-million views mark which is astounding to me. I find that incredible and your positive f

    WOW, US Army Cipher Machines! 

    Hey guys, today I have a quickie for you. I almost didn't bring it to you because I got to be honest, it's not a gun. And I know most of you only tune in to see some guns but I have something very very unique which is a cipher machine. I actually have two cipher machines. I'm going to talk about those, made for the US Army. But before I talk a little bit about these and by the way we'll be offering these for sale. Not something I collect and not something I know very much about. In fact, I know very little about. I'm sure some of you will be able to help me out, give me more information. I'm going to be passing it along to a lucky winner of our auction. But let me do a little bit of background on
