Re: WW2 JAP
These used to be fairly common, and I hardly ever see one anymore.
I remember when I was 14 years old, I bought one from a local gunsmith, along with a couple boxes of ammo for it. No laws prevented such a thing then, but my dad was a little less than please when I brought it home. He made me tie it to a fence post, tie a string to the trigger, and hide behind the barn while I pulled it to fire it the first time.
A mighty roar, an approval from Dad, and I had officially moved up from my .22 JC Higgens single shot rifle -
Christ told me to arm myself. If you want me disarmed - - Molon Labe.
