My great grand dad. I don't have a clue what the guns are.

After my Grandfather passed a couple of years ago I got a photo album with about 60 pictures that he took or are of him from his time in Korea.  Here's a sampling:  

Well...OK. Though this little tale isn't nearly as embarrassing nor foolish as some of the childish stunts my same age cousin and I pulled back then. We were about 9 years old, and like kids of t

Even better!  Those are very early pre-M16 AR-15 select fire from circa 1963.  If transferable in the US, they are about $100K each, now!

Ah, how I wish for the days when you could buy an armload of auto or select fire guns with cash and just walk on out. 

Of course with the decline in intelligence of the masses... I might not get the outcome I wanted if that happened today.

Wonder how many photo studios have guns for use in photos these days.

Probably not many have them. I remember a studio at Guntown Mountain Park in Cave City, Ky. that had prop guns you could hold for an old time photo.

Just finished reading the biography "Texas Ranger: The Epic Life of Frank Hamer, The Man Who Killed Bonnie and Clyde." By John Boessenecker.

Amazing story about a true legendary lawman. Hamer's favorite guns were the Remington Model 8 rifle and a Colt SAA he carried for most of his career that he nicknamed "Old Lucky".

My reaction if I saw this guy coming at me with a gun is probably the same as a burglar would react if they broke into our place at night, when this fat old naked guy meets him with a pump 12g. He will not know if he should be afraid or laugh. Either way I figure it would give me an advantage.

Interesting photo.  Resistance fighter?  Obviously a posed picture.  STEn MKII with six mags, home-made magazine pouch, German M24 grenade in his belt.  Clothes look like British 37 pattern, but the insignia on his shirt pocket looks like a collar tab from somewhere else.  The cap looks kind of like a German M43 cap.  I can't place the goggles.
