I agree with the previous posts `Sand Pebbles` ruined me for life... that and `Combat`... I was watching a rerun of `Combat`last week I had not seen in 40yrs. and it finally dawned on me that I had acquired all the guns they used in that segment...sort of a delayed subliminal effect...I was molded by what I watched as a kid...kinda glad they didn`t use a `tiger` in that one...I couldn`t sneek that by the little woman...my .02,out. wink.gif

Ron, you crack me up ;-)

Think it was around then when I first saw it too. A friend of the family had a movie theater in his home and he used to show the same movies that ran in the theaters. He would show war movies for the vets and kids on saturdays and first run films in the evening for the adults. You might have heard of him, his name was Dave Beck, we called him "Uncle Dave".

BETA! wow, that pinched a nerve.

I have a bunch of old beta tapes...wish I had a player that worked!

Yep, Had a Zenith Beta too, top loader. Used to break belts all the time till the head went out. Paid $1000.00 at the Bon, in 1976 dollars!

I have a big stack of gun mags in the basement from the 40's and 50's. Every time I feel a little sad I go down and read them....and zip....back to the good times. Think I'll order this anti-tank gun and two of the thompsons, no make that five springfields, three thompsons and ten Colt ssa's (for twelve bucks each). Oh what fun!

"Once I had to spend a lot of time lugging a BAR around, and that forever cured me of wanting to buy one of those anchors for myself"

I feel the same way about Sterlings. Guess it's a consequence of being made to carry one around rather than choosing to.

Thanks...My only problem now is that gangster movies cause a twinge of regret because I just can't bring myself to spend hundreds of dollars for an L drum...if I spend over $800.00 it needs to shoot, drive, or float.

colt21a, much to my regret I sold my .03 Springfield along with most of my other military rifles about nine years ago. I needed the money for school. I wish I still had the 03. It was the only rifle I remembered the serial number to 104214. It was a low number rifle my father surprised me with one Christmas. I still have the flier he ordered it from. It was an import. I did shoot it several times, and it surprised me with a mild recoil. I would have loved to have all the fun with all the firearms you had fun with biggrin.gif .

Deputy89C6, I am with you on having to have the right firearm with me to enjoy my favorite movies. I remeber having to have my LeeEnfield No4Mk1 to watch that excellent Australian film 'ANZACS'. I want to watch 'Saving Private Ryan', 'Band of Brothers', and 'Kelly's Heroes' again, but I have to wait on my Thompson to get back from the gunsmith. I guess I am hopeless too wink.gif .

I am thinking about getting a beat up Winchester Model 12 shotgun and converting it into a trench gun. I would love to have an origional, but talk about skyrocketing prices. I kick myself now because I could have bought one with a bayonet in the middle 80's for around $300.00. I should have talked My father into buying it. I like the Norinco 1897 tg copies, but I really want a Model12.

at that time it was a polotik's thing......

i will get another winchester when i find the right gun.kinda spoiled if its not minty cond.and original i won't buy it.......i passed on a few winchester trenchguns in The past two years..............

so the replica will have to do..........[FOR NOW]
