    When Money Isn

    How would you like to have a couple of these?
    They were just part of the various weapons found in Saddam's palaces.
    The gold is solid gold alloy, the silver is solid silver, the value is priceless.

    My son & his group found a large cache of platnum & ivory stocked AKs and RPGs on his 1st TOD there after they had a firefight with 30 or so Iraqis. They were working with a Polish group who took no prisoners (killed everyone in sight)& were wondering why they were so adimant about protecting the place until they found the firearms & ammo dump hidden in the basement.
    He was bummed when the higher up command "took" them all, but still said the Polish guys made off with one of the crates of the platnum/ivory AKs before they notified brass of the find......:)

    So, where are they now?

    "Priceless" is just a term. Somebody could buy them.

    Let's get serious here. What actually happens to guns like that in the recent conflict? Rednecks and young boys who have never left our borders need not reply.

    Saddam definitely had that third world dictator flair didn't he. All the other dictators were jealous.
