Ronald  Military history nut. History will teach us lessons, if we allow ourselves to learn.

Into the breach! Full disclosure: I did not actually fire this round. Several of the WWII vintage rounds I own are probably not fit for firing—this being one of them. Even if they were fit for firing, at this point I believe they’ve earned a quiet retirement. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gunsofinstagram #ammo #ammunition #8mm #8mmmauser #milsurp #milsurpguys .

This Remington Rand M1911A1 dates back to 1942, when parts supplies were not completely consistent (note the early trigger on this unit). This particular pistol also saw some additional work. When I took possession of it, the grip safety has been pinned, and an extended thumb safety was added. I have since replaced the thumb safety, but left the grip safety pinned. This pistol has a lot of stories to tell. It has likely seen service in at least two—and perhaps three—major conflicts, and perhaps a few other military actions. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gun #gunsofinstagram #pistol #45acp #remingtonrand #m1911 #m1911a1 #1911 #1911a1 #usa #unitedstates #usarmy #army #milsurp #milsurpguys .

This little Beretta M1935 fires a 7.65mm Browning Short (.32 ACP) round pretty accurately for all the character marks she bears. This particular example was manufactured in 1942, as the tide was turning against Italy. At the beginning of that year, prospects for an Axis victory were already in doubt, but as 1942 was coming to an end, the disasters of El Alamein and Stalingrad in November of 1942, coupled with the increasing presence of United States equipment and military forces left outlooks for Italian military success increasingly thin. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gunsofinstagram #pistol #gun #beretta #berettam1935 #m1935 #italy #italia #regioesercito #regiamarina #army #milsurp #milsurpguys .

I only own one rifle built after 1944. This is it. While I would certainly prefer an original StG-44, I do not regret having this replica. The chief advantages of this one is that it is a lot less expensive to operate (firing .22LR instead of 7.92x33mm) and the worry factor regarding damage is significantly less. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #gun #guns #gunsofinstagram #rifle #stg44 #sturmgewehr #sturmgewehr44 #germany #deutschland #wehrmacht #milsurp #milsurpguys .

I’ve cleared Shadow Ban exile! Let’s see if this photo is offensive and buys me another ban?! #krispykreme #donuts #doughnuts #donut #doughnut

At the Museo de Navaljs this interesting 7mm Hotschkiss machine gun. One of the first successful air-cooled machine guns, this particular example served during the Mexican Revolution in the second decade of the 20th Century. #machinegun #gun #guns #gunsofinstagram #mexicanrevolution #museodenaval #museonavalpuertovallarta #puertovallarta #mexico #milsurp #milsurpguys .
