Re: WW II Walther PP holster question.
My Dad was a combat infantryman (76th Division) in WWII and he said the Germans generally shot anyone they captured that had any souveniers (especially captured weapons) so very few people held on to them during the fighting. He acquired a unfired Walther PP during a mass surrender on the very last day or so of the war. He indicated that a LOT of the "captured" weapons people brought home were acquired at that time or after the armistice. Not very romantic, eh?
PS - the Walther has still never been fired.
