We can't simply call this "the statue". Is it too obvious to nickname this work of art "Gunny"?

Iron Mike is an 82nd Airborne statue dedicated to all paratroopers; past, present and future.

He carries a Thompson.

Default Saturday Opening Report

There were five customers at opening and there was no restock from yesterday’s closing report, SO, inventory remains the same..

Armors today are Bobby, Brit and Jeff

Good luck on your searches.

I looked at the statute. It has a some interesting serial numbers. Has a International Harvester 4448xxx, a few Winchester M1 in the duplicate ranges.

Interesting sculpture. Somewhat hits the thoughtful part of my brain similar to the fence of 2500 civil war rifles at Grants Farm St. Louis.

I'm at Talladega Marksmanship Park. There is a USMC tagged rifle HRA the tagged has the same serial as rifle. I'm may be regretting not getting it. The receiver is not mark with the USMC rebuild. I'm looking for a WWII era USMC for my family project.

BTW, I was in the 82nd so those other Iron Mikes don't count.

There were 39 rifles at closing and there was no restock.

Good numbers of 1903, WRA FG and SA FG.

Good luck on your searches.
