Lightbulb Luger Incident

Don Malarkey thinks he finds a Luger..
The Zodiac's usual pattern of attack, however, was to target Caucasian teenage couples, strike when they were inside some secluded lover's lane or in a car and kill them by either shooting them with a 9mm Luger or stabbing them with a knife...

Persian Luger. "Iran Army, A gift to General Evans..

Hoobler was born in 1923 to Ralph B. Hoobler and Kathryn (Carrigan) Hoobler in Manchester, Ohio..Hoobler died of a non-combat related injury..On January 3, 1945 at Bastogne, Cpl. Hoobler was killed when a pistol he had taken from a dead German snagged on a piece of barbed wire, causing it to fire.. The bullet entered his thigh, severing a major artery, and he died of blood loss..According to Private First Class David Kenyon Webster, a fellow soldier in the same platoon, Hoobler enthusiastically enjoyed the war..In reality, Hoobler did not obtain a Luger; the gun he shot himself with may have been either a Colt M1911 service sidearm, or a Belgian-made .32 automatic.. According to Clancy Lyall it was the latter.. He and Hoobler both obtained one from German prisoners during Operation Market Garden..Hoobler was buried at Manchester Cemetery...

The Pistole Parabellum 1908—or Parabellum-Pistole (Pistol Parabellum) is a toggle-locked recoil-operated semi-automatic pistol.. The design was patented by Georg J. Luger in 1898 and produced by German arms manufacturer Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) starting in 1900 with other manufacturers such as W+F Bern, Krieghoff, Simson, Mauser and Vickers; it was an evolution of the 1893 Hugo Borchardt–designed C-93..The first Parabellum pistol was adopted by the Swiss army in May 1900.. In German Army service, it was succeeded and partly replaced by the Walther P38 in caliber 9mm Parabellum..The Luger pistol was manufactured to exacting standards and had a long service life.. William B. "Bill" Ruger praised the Luger's 145° (55° for Americans) grip angle and duplicated it in his .22 LR pistol...Captured Lugers were much prized by Allied soldiers during both of the world wars as war trophies.. However, during World War II, German soldiers were aware of this and would use Lugers as "bait", rigging them to detonate land mines or hidden booby traps when disturbed..At least two pistols were manufactured later for possible commercial or military sales, and one is exhibited at the Norton Gallery, in Shreveport, Louisiana..Dutch armed forces from 1912 including Vickers made Lugers by the Dutch East Indies Army..Colonel David Hackworth mentions in his autobiography that it was still a sought-after sidearm in the Vietnam War..The Lange Pistole 08 ("Long Pistol 08") or Artillery Luger was a pistol carbine for use by German Army artillerymen as a sort of early Personal Defense Weapon..Feed system 8-round detachable box magazine, 32-round detachable drum..Iron sights..Thousands were taken home by returning Allied soldiers during both wars, and are still in circulation today...

Jump boots are standard footgear for Paratroopers and Airborne Forces with high legs.. The style is a type of combat boot and actually predates their issue during World War II..The uppers are generally made of smooth black leather with toe-caps and heel counters that accept a high polish ("spit-shine" or "spittle-shine")..William P. Yarborough initially designed the boots in 1941 for use in the 501st Parachute Test Battalion..Dutch Paratroopers were issued the M57 Jump Boot from 1958 to 1976.. They were a dark brown leather and had stitched soles..Italian Paratroopers are issued the stivaletti combattimento esercito italiano mod. 2000..A modified version of the paratrooper boot was issued to U.S. Navy personnel working on flight decks and Aircrewmen..These boots were sometimes colloquially referred to as "wing-walkers"..This style is no longer issued, but is still generally authorized to wear with most Navy working uniforms (i.e. NWUs, coveralls, Aviation Working Greens)... Father in Heaven, before we go into battle, every soldier among us will approach you each in his own way.. I think you oughta get yourself an M-16..If any of you sons of britches calls me grandpa...
