Throwback Thursday: 70 Years’ Perspective on Gun Collecting (Dolf Goldsmith)

Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

Today I am reposting an interview I filmed with Dolf Goldsmith back in December 2011. We talk about the state of gun collecting at that time, and how things have changed since Dolf first took up the hobby in the 1950s. In particular, he has some fun anecdotes about US Army testing with the PKM, and the heavy machine gun his aunt was sent by the US Government for her Red Cross service.

Sadly, the Robert Segel whom Dolf mentions as a book collaborator passed away this past year, and their book on the lesser-known machine guns has not come to fruition. Dolf remains a vibrant member of the community still today at age 93, though!
