Anthony and Elena Pucci at a 20 year high school reunion. Both Anthony and Elena were born on the same day, same year! Now how’s that for a match!

Left: Michael A. Pucci loading the truck for a gunshow. Mike likes to shoot and has since an early age been interested in firearms. Wonder why? Right, holding a very nice original 1945 M1 rifle in the Orion showroom on his 18th birthday in 2002.
Left. Hey that’s me (Anthony Jr.) in an Army jeep that my dad brought home after his annual 2 week maneuvers at Camp Drum, NY. Circa 1961. He used to bring me home real neat stuff like fired 30-06 cases, web gear, and army food. Right. CWO 4 Anthony Sr. posing in front of rows of mechanized artillery and tanks. One of my favorite pictures of my dad when I was growing up as a kid. This picture sits on my dresser and I look at it every day!
