Carbines for Collectors
History and Small Arms of a World at War

The World has been almost in constant conflict since the beginning of time.  Animal against animal and then man against man in the struggle to maintain our existence.  Power, money, ethnic differences and Religion have lead to some of the bloodiest wars imaginable and as long as man is on the earth this will not likely change.  Men have killed one another with rocks, stone and wood weapons, knives and spears of metal advancing to the black powder guns and then to smokeless powder guns, atomic weapons and now it is the laser.  Certain power factions have tried to take away our guns but if they prevail it will do no good as we will still have the weapons we started out with hundreds of years ago and the knowledge and ability to build more of the ones we have now.  If man wants to kill man it will happen no matter what and nothing will change that unless we manage to some how evolve into a different higher form of life. One that no longer has the want for power and money, and no longer has ethnic and religious differences.  

"Only the dead have seen the end of War" - Plato

Today we are sitting on the brink of another kind of war.  One that emanates from within our own government.  The Democrat party has been taken over by radical left wingers financed by George Sorros with the intent of destroying our form of life, our constitution, to form a one world order.  In his own  words he says the United States is the only thing standing in the way and he is now out to remedy that.  He will do this by using his puppets in Congress to bankrupt us, which is well  under way.  When this happens the world markets will collapse plunging the world into total kayos forcing the one world order he so desperately dreams of.  There will never be a United States again but one big country with no borders and socialist leaders which could turn to a dictatorship very easily.  Think about it!  Is this what you want?  Your freedom taken away?  Part of the world has opened their eyes to this but the die hard democrats out there still think the democrat party is the party they have always voted for.  Wrong! 

The scope of this web site has changed over the years to not only to cover the carbines & pistols that I collect, but to cover the Small Arms that were used by many European and Asian countries from the period 1878 to the present.
