Here are my JMB pieces:


Top to bottom: Les Baer Custom Carry, Colt Officers Model (highly modified), Browning Hi-Power (Belgium)

My dad, a US Army medic at the Battle of Luzon, brought back this 8mm Nambu:






Dad recalls taking it from a wounded Japanese lieutenant. The holster appears to be a cut-down US issued model for a 1911. The grips were altered, perhaps with aircraft plexiglass and there photos of American girls were inserted. Time and mold are taking their toll on the photos, as you can see. I fear this weapon has a grim history.
