DavidE,

GOOD FOR HIM! =======> more & more people are FIGHTING BACK against the HATERS & other criminal FILTH!
( i personally know of at least a half-dozen people who have HAD to defend themselves in the last few years with a firearm, including the retired RVN vet in Poteet, TX, that i mentioned on another gunhub conversation.)

I would bet he was allowed to carry because of who he was. I haven't been in Germany since the 60s but I doubt if they have very liberal carry laws. That being said I'm glad he was able to defend himself and his family.

bearcat6,

When i was stationed in BRD, anybody that had a legal hunting license could carry concealed. - it may very well be different now.

It's a little more complicated to get a hunting license in Deutschland than it is here. I never knew what their carry laws were when I was there, it never came up.

bearkat6,

YEP, it is.

i once had a hunting license in BRD & it took me 4 months of class attendence, lots of hours of "book study", 300DM in fees & a written/oral exam to get it.

SW, how long ago was that? I have a cute little Fraulein pen-pal over there that's expressed interest in learning to hunt and shoot, and I've been trying to dig up what info I can to help her find her way.

Diamondback,

I finally got my hunting license in the early summer of 1971 & it was re-issued in 1978. = it was NOT an easy task, as the oral test was in German & at the city courthouse in Saarbrucken.
(i took the classes themselves in Jan & Feb & my German was BAD. - it's MUCH worse now! = CHUCKLE.)

note: each of the States of BRD (at least then) set their own requirements for American service personnel to get hunting & fishing licenses. - At least then, some places were WORSE than others.
(I know of a fellow who took his oral exam in Karlsruhe in the 1980s, who was asked which PAGE in the text that a certain regulation was printed upon.)

note: i knew a Safety Officer (a GS-11 DAC), who was there in the 1990s & NEVER passed his exams!
(i suspect that he made someone angry!)

yours, sw

Diamonback,

Would you care for me to sing a few bars of FRAULEIN, FRAULEIN, in the style of Mikey Gilley????
(chuckle).

LOL Thanks, but I'll pass on that one... she's cute, but already has a guy and I don't believe in poaching. And thanks for the info--I'll start searching around that and pass it and whatever I find along to her. :)

Neither can I. LOL My rendition of "Leavin' On A Jet Plane" in my senior year Math class was so horribly off-key, my instructor offered me extra credit if I'd just promise to NEVER even attempt anything like singing in her class again.... :D

Diamonback,

in 1991, i was the Provost Marshal at Ft Pickett in VA. On LEE-JACKSON-KING DAY, we had as our "honored guest" & speaker Virginia's Governor Douglas Wilder, at the ceremony in memory of the 3 heroes.

After the invocation, the "song leader" asked the crowd to sing CARRY ME BACK TO OLD VIRGINIA (which was then the state song). - After the song was over, the "song leader" asked Governor Wilder & I to NOT SING any more but to "just stand quietly" during the rest of the hymns & patriotic music!!!!!
(for the rest of the day, the governor & i avoided looking at each other, as we couldn't even look at each other without "cracking up" laughing.)

yours, sw
