I often take Sat. off from riding to get some manly house chores out of the way. I had some outdoor stuff at our house along with a roof turbine repair at my MIL's that I have been procrastinating on. I figured while I was at it I could search through all the tools in the garage over there for a bunch of taps and dies that I had seen several years ago. I probably should have looked at the tool box marked "Taps and Dies" first rather than setting it aside and pulling out 60 yrs worth of stuff duh! I hadn't held out much hope for a reverse threaded 1.37" BB tap and I wasn't disappointed when I finally found the stuff and everything was too small. Nothing even close. But not a total loss. In my search, I came across a vintage WWII Italian military Beretta in mint condition that I thought had been long lost and gone. My FIL was part of the invasion of Italy and ended up being the driver for Gen. M. Wayne Clark, commander of the 5th army and leader of the Italian campaign. As I remember my FIL telling it, one time he was to drive the general out to a cave where a major weapons cache had been discovered. In inspecting the goods, my FIL was allowed by the general to "liberate" one of the unissued handguns, a model 1934 chambered in Corto 9 (aka .380). It was apparently manufactured in 1944 towards the end and never made into service. I also found a lock box with all the in-laws important documents but haven't had time to search through them to see if there is an authorization to return from Europe with an enemy weapon in there somewhere. That would be pretty cool, but I don't know if he just slipped it into his ditty bag on the sly or what. He passed away a couple of years ago at the ripe old age of 95 so that experience is gone with him. Fortunately, he told us stories many times so we have that.
