Mas 36

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

An interesting colourised foto of Mas 36 rifles, captioned "Men of the Polish Independent Highland Brigade taking their oath, Malestroit, France 1940".

The two finger salute is a Polish thing. Cub Scouts do the two finger salute too.

Now the one finger salute is the one most people are familiar with. :loco:

The photos of some of the USS Pueblo crew, that was captured by the North Koreans
in 1968, show them giving the one finger "Hawaiian Good Luck", sign until the Koreans
found out what it really meant.............. :mrgreen:

Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.

I have a MAS 36 and shoot it sometimes. I ought to shoot it more as I got some PPU ammo at a reasonable price a couple of years ago. I hope this virus thing goes away soon so the range opens up again.
Regards
Peter.
