This is the other half of the 1915 Flatow&Priemer holster, I have posted in the holster forum. Nothing special, just a pretty little 1915. About 98-99%. It's I believe my favorite. I guess partly because 1915 was the year my Dad was born. When ever I look at it. It reminds me of how while not anti-gun in the least. He, because of his service in the Pacific, as a designated sniper in the combat engineers. Did'nt care to have guns in the house. However, he recognized my passion for them and compromised. This little Luger reminds me to be gratefull for his love and understanding. As well as my first .22. A Ruger Bearcat.He worked overtime to raise the $40.00 to buy it for me. Enjoy!! Ron

Ron,

Thank you for sharing this with us. In my case your story makes me remember too...

My father was born in 1915 also, he was NCO in military service in the Netherlands from 1936 trough 1940 untill the Germans dropped in there. Prisoner untill 1942, then he managed to stay out of trouble. In October 1944, when the Germans were driven out of the South of Holland, he enlisted in the 49th Transport Company of the English army - as motor ordonnance (Harley Davidson). I have still a picture of me, sitting before him on this bike, I was 18 month old then...

He was not a weapons man, just like your dad. He used to have his service pistol, a 1911 Colt, but he kept it away from his son, me. Later, when I started collecting pistols, he told me 'keep in mind that they were made for war, be carefull'.

I have a Colt from the WWI period, dedicating it to the memory of my dad, just like you do with this fine P.08 1915.

Thanks again for making me remember.

Joop, It's a small world. I'm happy to here that I stimulated those memories. I will sometimes go to places we used to fish together. And just sit and remember him.And the great times we had together.

Thankyou for sharing, Ron
