    I was always fascinated by guns, but thanks to our laws over
    here I never thought about to own one ‘til I shot the first time in Tennessee.
    Then I found out that it is not impossible.

    Hi Michael, and welcome to the forum. You'll like it here...

    I have deep connections to Germany including relatives in Munich and close friends in Oberndorf a. Neckar near Stuttgart.

    Oberndorf is where Mauser was located, and you owe it to yourself to take a trip over to see the Oberndorf Weapons Museum (which is located on the 3rd floor of the old Swedish Bureau on the Mauser site). Many very interesting firearms and other products made by Mauser are on display.

    The museum and Walther site is walking distance from the train station in Oberndorf, just an hour south of Stuttgart by train.

    One of the world's most remarkable original design gunsmiths is also in Oberndorf. He was the designer of the Picatinny Rail used widely on firearms.
    Cheers! Marc

    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    Michael, welcome to the forum. Those are some great looking guns and look forward to any range reports. I spent some time over there with Thyssen Krupp and enjoyed the little town. Met two of the local hunting clubs and found the learning very interesting. I did try the pub "bowling" and it was fun and the townspeople were very nice. Again, welcome aboard.
    Regards,
    Rodney

    Welcome from northern Idaho, USA.
    We were thinking about possibly moving to Sevierville, TN, but decided that Knoxville will be better suited to us. It's certainly close enough.
    The Bud's showroom could surely use some more stuff to fill up all that empty space, but their shooting range is awesome. I was really impressed when we visited them back in April this year.

    I'm certain you will enjoy the shooting sports, and hopefully you can make it back to this side of the big pond sometime soon.
    I'm glad to have you here with us, and hope to see you back regularly. We love photos of just about anything, but especially guns and dogs!

    See you back soon!

    Regards,
    Gregory

    Teach them the truth, and let them sort thru the cobwebs of liberalism that have infested their minds.
    When the time comes that I don't want a new gun, call the undertaker!
    When they come for your guns, give them the ammo first!

    Under the N.Y Safe Act the Walther GSP is now classified as an assault weapon under N.Y state law. It is also classified as an assault weapon under Chicago and Cook County laws due to the magazine being outside of the pistol grip.
