I have my own spin on this idea. Instead of limiting how many firearms people can buy a month, I decided to feature one of my favorites every month. This month it’s one of the most rare guns on the planet. It’s the .45 caliber LUGER! Originally sent to the US Army for trials, it almost became the standard issue sidearm for the U.S. Military. It was eventually rejected by the the US in favor of the Colt .45. This pistol was eventually adopted by the Wehrmacht (German Army) only in 9mm. The rest is history. There were only two known to exist. Serial #1 was thought to have been discarded after the testing and #2 is in the hands of a private collector. Rumors abound that there may have been as many as 20 produced but they are unconfirmed. As far as pistols go, it’s one of my favorites. CaptainAmerica

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER! -Winston Churchill

Courage isn't the absence of fear. Rather it's the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
