Instagram Public Photos with #milsurpguys

@oldmauserman with the tough questions 🤯 • • •
so, i really enjoy history, and i really enjoy coffee. the question thus comes to mind, if i had to do without coffee or my pieces of history, which would i sacrifice? i often enjoy coffee without holding a piece of history, and i often enjoy history without the benefit of a cup of coffee. coffee often gets me going in the morning, but history often settles me for the evening. i am glad i don’t have to decide!

Perfection is necessary when dealing with a mauser. some 9mm largo freedom seeds for the bolo. @frankfordarsenal

"to no man does the earth mean so much as to the soldier. when he presses himself down upon her long and powerfully, when he buries his face and his limbs deep in her from the fear of death by shell-fire, then she is his only friend, his brother, his mother; he stifles his terror and his cries in her silence and her security; she shelters him and releases him for ten seconds to live, to run, ten seconds of life; receives him again and again and often forever."
-erich maria remarque, all quiet on the western front

here are two examples of how german soldiers tried to become one with the earth, to seek refugee in it by camouflaging they're helmets. on the left a m1916 and on the right a m1917 stahlhelm both with different styles of tortoise shell camouflage. sorry this is all i have for imperial german militaria. #mantiques #militaria #milsurp #milsurpguys #ww1militaria #thegreatwar #luger #bayonet #gewher98 #stahlhelm

After my last shadow ban, i thought a lot about the photos i was posting and how they might trigger someone. i haven’t yet come to terms with how seventy-six year old military rifles would do that. especially in light of the hateful, sexually-suggestive, vicious political, and anti-religious posts i’ve seen, posts of old rifles seems pretty tame. indeed, displaying world war ii weapons and artifacts—even if they bear a swastika or hammer-and-sickle—seems more like a history lesson and an opportunity for discussion than anything threatening or offensive. i took some time to write a rather rambling blog on the subject. i would appreciate any comments, questions, or opposing views. you can find the article at www.worldwariionline.com. #wwii #ww2 #worldwarii #worldwar2 #military #militaryhistory #history #guns #gun #gunsofinstagram #m1rifle #mauser #germany #unitedstates #deutschland #usa #milsurpguys .

"they fell with their faces to the foe.
they shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn. "

i debated making this picture in black and white for the 100th anniversary of the armistice but what those poor boys saw was not in black and white just like war. this corporals uniform is so small it hits home the realization they were just boys. growing up in schenectady and have deployed with the 27th where half the city fought for either the 27th id or 42nd id it's was something forgotten to the city. let us not forget the sacrifice these boys made. #trenchwarfare #pistol #milsurplus #notasafequeen #gun #colt1911 #ww1 #27thinfantrydivision #27thid #bootknife #trenchknife #milsurpguys #hatebelt #mantiques #1918trenchknife #militaria #ww1militaria #thegreatwar #fightingirish #newyorknationalguard #trenchart #militarysurplus #toolsofthetrade
