    Those of us living in Germany shouldn't count.

    HJ Henkles (I think thats what is called) Can Opener, which, compared to my other can opener that was like $10 at the supermarket is crap.

    HJ jenkles knife/fork

    Mercedes

    Miele Stove - which i had to get replaced by another

    A film camera (got it right before digital cameras started appearing on the market), cant remember the brand, but its the same brand ****** used. Why is H1TLER censored?
    Found it, Leica is the name.

    5 days a week I carry my Heckler & Koch USP .45ACP as my main duty weapon, and my H&K P7M8 9mm as my off duty weapon. You can't beat H&K's engineering and build quality IMHO. I also own several 98 Mauser pattern rifles both in military form and commercial sporting variations, all by German manufacturers.

    I don't have much for German things other than beer, but I've considered buying a Sinn and I almost bought a VW(couldn't come to terms on a deal), so I'm still driving Australian.

    Currently, the only other German product I have/own is a Sig Sauer P 229 handgun. I did have a BMW 330I, but as soon as the free maintenance period expired, I sold it (German cars are EXPENSIVE to maintain!).

    I also drink Warsteiner beer whenever I can find it.

    A whole bunch of stuff!

    Six watches from GO, a Porsche (I've had one other Porsche and five different Mercedes), a few H&K's, a Schmidt & Bender scope, a couple of Dietmar Kressler's custom knives, Braun shaver.

    All the good stuff!

    GLOCK model 21 in .45 (so it's Austrian... it counts)

    H&K P7 PSP German Federal Police model in 9mm (although my grail is a .45 P7). The squeeze-cock mechanism is ingenious, and it's as close to a phaser as I'll ever get.

    Re: New Poll: What other German products do you own?

    The HK P7 really is an ingenious design and I've shot the M13 more than any other 9mm. Since there were only 6 ever produced in .45 ACP, the only thing rarer than seeing one of the actual prototypes would be finding one for sale.


    I think the design is perfect for the 9mm caliber with the ideal size and weight, while the P7M10 in .40 S&W requires a more massive slide that makes it significantly heavier. Check out the Cult of the P7 over at Park Cities Tactical.

    Edited to remove photo of handgun. Please read WUS rules and guidelines.

    Re: New Poll: What other German products do you own?

    In the old days, I used the H&K G3. Amazing and a very accurate carbine.
    Zwilling kitchen knives, Bosch mixer combo from the early 80ies , Zeiss binoculars,
    Braun shaver, Leica camera (non digi )
    I used to own many more German electrical things, but it is 110 Volts on the island, so I gave them all away.
    Sold 2 x Porsches (993 + 996) and a 1939 Mercedes 230S when I moved.
    I am a great fan of German engineering.
    If I cannot get Czech beer, I do enjoy Beck's. Lots of it (hydration is important here).
    I forgot my 1974 BMW motorbike!
