My first gun, a Mk I Flare Gun

Article about: I just picked this up today for 100 dollars. It is in pretty good shape. I believe these are pretty common, but it looks good with my Air Force items.

    I've had the same problem, apart from both of my parents disagree with me having them. Just tell them the exact details and whats been done to deactivate them and that they are harmless and nothing more than pieces of metal and wood over and over again until it becomes so annoying that they give up

    I've tried for about a year with my mum. She won't budge. And if I ask one more time she will take my collection away for a month.

    Hi Bob best to know when you are beaten mums rule the house thats the way of the world.
    if i was you i would collect things that don't couse so much fuss. there is a lot to be sead for a easy home life.
    what about collecting the acsesories around the wepons you want? then when you are older just add the wepon it's self some of the extras are far harder to get than the guns. 100 round drum mag for a bren for instance is very hard to get hear in the uk but brens are easy £250-£350 and they are yours.
    100 drum mag £400+

    She won't allow anything with a swatstika, or anything that has to do with guns, either than bayonets. I'm not allowed to collect uniforms, becuase we don't have the room(even though I have plenty of room in my bedroom). So.....edged weapons, medals, documents, pictures, and one or two more helmets.
