Mp 40

That was pretty cool to see. I believe that was the gun my dad was shot with, he didn't go into details often, usually just said 'machine gun' but somehow I recall him mentioning something (probably while watching a WWII movie or Hogan's Heros (he never missed that, guess it was a reminder, although not too close for comfort of his POW time)) that made me think MP 40 (and yes, I would have been among those who called it a 'Shmeiser' (sp?)). I should look up the videos on the Thompson as that was mostly what he carried, always claimed that he threw it away more than once (too heavy) but it would find it's way back.
