Armistice Day

I got home from work after midnight in a scathing “rip someone’s head off” mood and started to whine.

Then, I looked at my watch.

The Great War was a horrible clash of modern technology, famine, disease, revolution, and out-dated strategy. May we all shut up for one day and celebrate its end.

I am sorry our ancestors were thrust into such a hell, but proud of their bravery and devotion. Rest well, gentlemen.

Holy Shit, Batman

Cpl Dipprasad Pun, 31, of Ashford, Kent, said he was “very proud” after receiving the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross at Buckingham Palace.

You would think people would know better than to tangle with a Gurkha by now. Good show, Corporal Pun.

Surprise!

My grandfather served most of WWII as a truck driver in Uncle Sam’s Army. He came home healthy, married a beautiful woman, had a family, raved about the beauty of Italy, and never said much about his service in the war itself until he died.

I bought this Beretta 1934 today to remind myself of one of the greatest men to ever grace God’s green earth.

The outer finish isn’t the best, so I got this thing for a steal, but the bore and mechanics are perfect. It has all of the fascist markings: XX for manufacture tewnty years into fascist control, 1942 that is and RE for acceptance and issue by the Italian Army. It shoots great.

Thank you for everything grandpa; I know you weren’t much for guns, but I wish you were still around to fire this thing.
