2005 West Texas Militaria Gathering
Back in 2005, I was fortunate to be able to have a gathering, at my home, to honor friend and Banzai editor Doss White and his wife at my home. Doss brought two models of Japanese knee mortars, various reference books and his good conversation to the meet, eat and greet party. A Japanese Baby Nambu and other oddities and collectors were on hand. Here, Doss demonstartes a Japanese knee mortar to Steve Whiting. The next day we fired these mortars at the local rifle range! A great time had by all!
Here, I am handling a Japanese Baby Nambu pistol. Very rare! Notice the book table in the back and my good friends. We are all stuffed from the fajitas!
Good West Texas food from Rosa's was on hand. Fellow collectors and friends on hand.
Spouses, oblivious to the history, but enjoying each other's company. A man's evening! ;)
Some of the interesting firearms that were shared. We made an attempt to scare the neighbors; unfortunately it did not happen. ;)
