  4. Stealing from captured soldiers is against the Hague Convention! :run:

    I wish I had some stuff. Stupid family members dying in WW2 instead of stealing stuff :wtc:

    And to think. I grew up in an environment like this. I was disrought when I found out not everyone owned gun rooms. I thought it was a common thing

    Weve lived ibn our house for 18 years now. Moved in when I was 2. My dad turned the smallest bedroom into his gun room, since he collected guns and militaria. Over the years it has slowly accumulated both treasures and trash since my dad sucks at keeping things clean. When I started cleaning it, there was about 2 to 3 feet of garbage in there and took up the entire room. You couldnt even walk past the swing of the door.

    Well, my mom and dad have hated eachother for a pretty long time. He moved out just 2 months ago. I began to take the room over as my own. The stuff is still his, but I think most of them will be inherited. Anyways, Im moving in atleast. Cant beat a free gun room :cool:

    He said he may sell me a few of his guns though. Including his Norinco SKS at the price he paid 15 years ago or so. Also comes with the ORIGINAL tacticool side folding stock from the late 80s and an early modded AK mag. I cant wait looking extra gay with those accessories on it. :coold:
    Im really gonna need the room, since Ive gotten 3 or 4 guns within 6 months or so, and I dont have any more room in the gun cabinet I just bought.

    holy shit, i am envious.

    one year when i was in europe during the summer, we stopped in rothenburg, ger.

    antiques are cool and i went into one shop with my mother and father. i collect coins and was interested in one of the WWII marks coins w/ a swastika on it. everything with a swastika on display was covered with a little sticker. old man that ran the shop saw my interest and said "you like third reich memorabilia?" i said yes and he beckoned me and my parents forth.

    he opened up a door and we walked into a 20'x20' room full of uniforms, medals, swords, etc.

    i was in heaven.

    and the man gave me the coin for free.

    I used to collect coins but lost interest when I was young. Do have 2 or 3 swastika stamped coins though. I have that and a complete mercury dime set. Other than that I really dont give a shit about my collection anymore. Just holding onto it til it jumps in value

    WOW! Nice collection of relics! Are those visors and that field cap with the edelweiss genuine?



    aren't swastikas and Third reich uniforms illegal in Germany?

    might explain why the coins were the only pieces with swastikas on display and there were stickers over them...

    ...and why the rest of the stuff was in a room he had to unlock to get in.
