    Hi from Guernsey C.I

    Greetings from Guernsey Channel Islands,British Crown Dependency.The only British country occupied by Germany in WW2.They left many interesting and unusual handguns lying around at the end of the war,and as a 10 year old at the time I decided that they should belong to me.Some I still own,but how I wish I had kept them all,as some of them would be of such interest these days.It appears that German soldiers were allowed to keep whatever they picked up as they came through France,Belgium,etc,and some of the items came from little back street gunshops who produced their own ideas of mainly 25acp & 32acp in particular.Pistol shooting is a popular sport here,but only on approved ranges,We also have some excellent rifle shooters as well.Shooting off range is only permitted with shotguns as we have nearly 70,000 people on an Island approx 9 miles x 5 miles so even 22 rifles are restricted to ranges.Although British,we are not part of the UK ,so our gun laws are not the same as the UK. We are a friendly Island,. so if anyone should happen to pass this way,give us a call,you would be more than welcome to visit.
