After reading Brian M's post of his duties as unit armorer, I started wondering how the various units out there handle individual and unit weapons? I know it really depends on 1) where you live and 2) the types of people in your unit...but with the variety of WW2 weapons, laws, units and individuals there's bound to be trouble/friction, fascination, safety issues, etc..
In the units I belong to, an individual is given some brief guidelines - get a K98
then worry about the rest! As both units stradle state lines with different gun laws, there is some variety offered - but then there are other concerns there. Fortunately we have several law enforcement officials in our ranks that can help us figure things out
With the FJ unit being relatively new, we are strong on the basics of P-38's and K-98's, but lacking on squad weapons. As for the SS unit, it is getting pretty heavy with autos..
then there are flare guns and at weapons too!
