    Like rabbits......

    Agree with Jake as well very educational. I got to pick up one of these one day

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I really like the tan netted M80, that one really has a unique field used look , probably been through the Iran Iraq war before it was resused again in the Gulf war, a true battlefield pick up, nice

    all of them are a little different, that what makes collecting Iraqi helmets so much fun
