what type of holster does it look like? I mean the one at the Left hand side of his belt. It is rare to have such a small sized p38 holster.

The picture leaves a great amount to be desired, but one thing is certain , the holster is not a P.38 but rather for a small caliber gun such as a 7.65 mm.

You will not beleve this but I fully believe that Otto Skorzeny worked for the US army !955 to 1958. I was told of this by a friend of mine who was under Otto's command While he was in the old special forces.

yes the US special forces Before Bobby Kennedy expelled all officers and men who were "foreign Born" back to their countrys of birth (including those behind the iron curtain) that caused over %50 of those remaining to resign. Then president John F Kennedy made a big deal of "exppanding" the special forces and letting them wear the "Green Bearets".

Some reported that he and his men used a Steyr Hahn with an extended grip and 16 shot mag..and full auto capabilities.

Others stated the MP40 was his favorite.

I would guess it would depend on the 'job'...With his 'clout with Adolf'....he certainly could have anything he wanted!!!

Hi PPC I'm sorry my friend No longer lives in my area so I can't ask him. To my memory We never discussed what Otto's favorite pistol durring the war was. I believe that the paratroopers favored the Hi-power tho. Bob Benson
