    My neighbors Nambu....

    Yesterday im talking with my neighbor an old Soldier who I frequently share war stories and complaints about the wife but who listens, and we get on the topic of home defense and he wants me to come over and look at his Stevens double barrel 12ga , which I do because I never give up a chance to check out guns..lol . Which as I looked at it and we set back and talked guns we got on the subject of handguns and he said he had just one he brought back from the war and im thinking ok this is a WW2 vet so this I got to see. He said he had taken it from a dead Japanese officer who didnt need it anymore , so he comes back with a Nambu in its original holster with a long bayonet in its original condition. So I was in a moment of temporary shock , more like holy crap , and he proceeded to tell me about landing on an Island as a young Marine and fighting for his life and thought it would be good to have a pistol handy. I asked if he had ammo for this he said yes he still had the last 2 rounds in it from the Jap officer and said he was saving them so if time had come he wouldn't be taken alive !! I looked at them and they had that green corrosion on them like you see on the copper pipes. Then he produces paper work for it from his unit dated back to 1945 when he got out issuing it to him to keep. I thought this was a amazing story and got to hold a piece of history and wanted to share with you guys im posting picks. Sorry so long.

    Great piece of history and having the original receipt adds immensely to the collector value.

    Great story
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    He said that he had no one to leave it to and that he might leave it to me in his will . I told him I couldn't accept because I thought it was to important a piece of our history but would if left to me make sure it was placed in either a Marine corp museum or NRA museum for all generations of military and gun enthusiast to see along with his story .

    Very cool, awesome post. Accept the pistol, and find a nice little museum to donate it to yourself. The big ones probably already have plenty; Maybe a local place will want it, as it will highlight a resident as well.

    Good point I know we have the Special ops and Airborne museum here maybe a Marine museum on the coast. Hopefully he live much longer I like the stories he tells..
