I guess if I run out of ammo...........

Things a soldier would carry other than firearms, ammo, or uniforms. Meaning equipment such as ammo pouches, bayonets, holsters, oil cans, cleaning equipment, etc.

I guess if I run out of ammo...........

Post by Miller Tyme » Mon Nov 25, 2013 8:12 pm

Was visiting my LGS today and they had a pair of pre WW1 German Cavalry Lances that where brought in to sell, well $50.00 latter they are now in my basement and I am trying to figure out what to do with them.



( or even how to get good pics of them) :lol:


Here is a pic of a Germany Lancer with one

Now that's not your usual impulse buy by any means.

Bet those lancers had a life expectancy in WWI shorter than a love bug cruising I10 in September.

Maybe you could get a shield and cross the lances behind the shield and hang it all on the wall.......or if you have a wife.....probably not.


If you take a photo....I'd like to see.

The wife has already ruled that idea out :lol:

Sounds like you got a bargain there MT, our club room at the castle has two crossed bamboo British lances mounted on the wall.

I found reproduction pendants for them, plus found they can still be gotten from Sarco.http://www.sarcoinc.com/lances.html

I didn't know Sarco still existed. Looks from their prices you got a real bargain.

Just one of those "impulse buys" that will someday make for a great news story about and auction to settle some old crummugons estate. :lol:
