Post by Gustaf » Mon Dec 26, 2016 2:41 pm

Maggie gave me a great Christmas present, some might remember this from SOS 2016, it goes nice with my panty grabber.

Santa has been nice to forum members this year (not to me though)!
Dare I ask what a panty grabber is?...

Now things are different Gus! I gues I'll have to fire up the truck now ](*,)

Can you please take some pictures of the inside and the markings. Maybe there are markings on the strap too?

Sadly the strap is a replacement, you just as well load the truck up before you leave your house, as there is more room at my house than at yours!

Thanks for the pic of the marking Gus! Too bad the strap is a replacement, that's so hard to find...

Congratulations Gus on a difficult to find piece. I could not help but notice the handguns on display on the wall. Fantastic! :thumbright:

Thanks Tony, the handguns are not that big of a deal, but every one has a correct holster with it, when I find a holster, I get it as it is way easier to find the pistols, for some reason, when soldiers picked up pistols, they seldom thought to take the holster as well. I would have made a very poor soldier as I would have grabbed the pistol and thought I should have the holster for that, then the belt to put the holster on, oh and then I need the uniform to put the belt on and the helmet and boots, and I better get a set of dog tags and ID papers, a bar of soap and shaving kit et cetera......
I started out as a gun collector, and you can see where that got me.
Here some better shots of the weapons, the pistols are mounted on boards so they can be removed from the wall with ease and mounted on a frame for the displays that I set up for the public (which would explain the random display labels in the photos).

Nice stirnpanzer and lovely collection.

I love that Belgian mauser hanging on your wall, and the t-gewher, and... wel, i love everything.

Sorry, but still nothing from Oz, you southern boys are very protective of your heritage.

Hi Gus, Great piece. I've thought of adding one of those to my collection, but haven't seen the right one at the right price.

Unlike, your wife, my wife never buys me helmets! :( I recall when Maggie plucked the Portuguese M16 off a dealer shelf right in front of me. That's still the best Portuguese M16 I've seen. Very cool to see it mounted with the uniform.

You made the mistake of setting it back down, and it is the best Portagee helmet I have ever seen.

The collector world can indeed be a cruel one.......sigh! :( I am constantly reminded of this by gazing upon Gus's avatar which features a PH gas helmet that was surreptitiously purchased from out of the Great White North (Canada) by said member!.....less than 60km from my house!!

Not only did I snap it up from under your nose in your neighbourhood, but I found it when the owner posted it on this forum asking for information about it. I feel that acquisition makes up for Canada allowing Russia to take over the North Pole.
