A little nod to MGS with my MARK 23
Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness.
If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
"I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
So I am under the impression that there are
- 5 original USSOCOM (in civilian collections)
- approx 40 USSOCOM slide kits
Does anyone have any clue how many of the “US-GOV” Marks are kicking around? Obviously at least one 😂
042 is in the gray room. I've never seen any others, outside of books.
Mein lieber Herr Gesangsverein!
What can I say, I'm just a good ole' boy from Texas.
I didn't realize there were so many in private hands. I have only ever seen 042 and 005 in pictures from the Gray room, and 036 in one of Kersten's books.
So you have seen 19 US-Govt. MK23 guns in private collections??
Edit: You've seen 14 in private collections??
I wouldn't have imagined that, and I've seen 4 P7M7s!
I'll stick with my P7s...
