The first person to greet us when we moved in to our house in Fla 20 years ago was our Germany lady neighbor. She baked us a Black Forest cake. Best cake I ever ate. I was not back into guns at the time. Her husband was an officer in the Wehrmacht an died some years before. She sold all of his guns but kept one. I was not curious at the time and didn't know what it was. She called us the other day and said she had some important news and could we come over. She is 95 now and her family is putting her in a nursing home. She had a frosty relationship with her kids for a long time and it seems no one wants to take her in but they are footing the bill for the home. Anyway, she wanted to give my wife and I some things. My wife got Hummel figures she always liked. Then she brings out this oily rag and I knew a gun was in it. It was her husbands and his fathers before him. He carried it in the war. A JP Sauer Sohn 6.35. I told I could not take it and it may be valuable. Her reply was what good is money now. She insisted I take it but I felt kinda sad also.
