well, just a picture of a long lost uncle of mine and his STG44 he sent back to the states.



On the back of the photo it reads: Uncle Louis posing with German machinegun he sent home with some German flags.

My aunt had a huge stack of old photos over at my mom & dads house and I happened to see this one when they were glancing through them.

For all we know he found the gun and he's smart enough to keep his mouth shut

Cool. Last night we got a call and dispatched EOD to a house where a family cleaning out grandpas basement found a live Jap WWII grenade. Wonder what other goodies are there.

By the time the cops would call us (EOD), all the guns were long gone.

Me: "Ma'am did your husband have any firearms in addition to the grenades?"

Widow: "No sir. I gave them to all those nice police officers."

Me: "Hey guys, what about the weapons?"

Cops: "What weapons?"

Seriously, most departments had a policy on that kind of stuff and the police officers had to turn them in. In the places that didn't have a policy, I usually got there about half an hour too late.

I told my Capt, "I can't believe they didn't call me." They lived down my street too.
