The Air Zoo, besides having a boatload of WW2 aircraft, had a very nice display of firearms from that period, some of which I have always dreamed of owning. I took some shots of my personal favorites.
In the photo below, you can see the US M3 "grease gun". It was a .45 caliber automatic mg carried all over the world. Below and right of it is the German MP 40, a mg that I always thought was one of the nicest looking.
Below you see a collection of sidearms from WW2. Upper left, a German Luger P08, and next to that the Walther P38 in 9mm. Second row is a Belgian made Browning model 1910, and next to that is a Sauer model 38h. I WANT one of those Lugers.
Here is a photo of probably one of the ugliest WW2 guns made, the British Sten.
And here we come to what is probably my favorite gun of all time, the Russian PPsH 41, with the drum magazine. They were also used with a stick magazine quite often, but most of the photos I have seen have them with the drum magazine (held 71 rounds). This gun was produced cheaply by the millions in the USSR and was very easy to teach anyone to shoot. Here is a pretty good wiki on the PPsH 41 if you are interested.
On the bottom of the following photo you can see a German MG42 heavy MG and right above that an old Lewis gun. That Lewis is a bit out of place in this display, but what the heck.
