    What's with the nazi memorabilia at gun shows? I can get the booth with WWII memorabilia. But I was at saxet today and one of the ffl vendors had a big 24x24 banner hanging on the inside of the table, where he was sitting. Just seemed odd.

    I don't get it either.
    Maybe some folks like having something connected with such notorious history?
    Don't own anything Nazi marked tho I do see the tech advances in their firearm developments like the Stg-44, MG-42, and FG-42.

    It's historical and folks like to collect it, just like Garands, Mosins, Arisakas and many other military-related items...

    Military memorabilia is a huge market, especially over in Europe. I used to attend shows in Belgium that were larger than any of the gun shows we have here in Texas.

    That guy has some cool stuff. He gets much of it from the estates of vets, and some great deals from what he's told us...

    Different people collect for different reasons.
