    A visit to Albanian Armed Forces Museum

    Taken this past Monday.

    Rifles are a mix of Chinese and Albanian production.

    No, that is me tearing apart their displays to photograph everything in detail.

    The dark spiker is a run of the mill Chinese Type 56.

    I heard that at one time a bunch of stored WWII German weapons that were in Albania went to an arms museum in country.
    Are you going to visit any of the old weapons factories in Albania?
    I have heard that the old SKS factory is in shambles... roof collapsing etc.
    Might be interesting to see what remains.

    There have been a few shipments of WWII stuff from Albania to European dealers. Places like TransArms, Limex, etc

    Not planning on visiting the factory. The AK factory is currently busy demilling excess ordnance and supposedly have a license from HK for new rifles. Not sure what.

    As a lifetime student of geography, I'd be just as interested (if not more so) to hear a bit about your general impressions of being in Albania.
    We've got a hell of a lot more in common with the fellow citizens we're being trained to hate than the puppetmasters training us to hate them.

    Was better then I thought. This was my 2nd time in Albania, the 1st time was in 1999 with the Army, but spent most of my time working at the airport.

    Anyways, on the plane ride in, beautiful Alp/Rocky mountain type mountains, a nice looking coast line.

    Tirana itself, a little run down/dirty but that is "normal" in warm places like Italy, Greece, etc.

    Prices on food and lodging were not super cheap but very reasonable.

    And despite being "Muslim", in two days, I saw a whopping 3 women in Hijabs. Two of which were old ladies. I see more in a 10 minute walk in Germany.

    I had an Albanian gf for a bit not too-too long ago. Olive-skinned Eastern Orthodox gal. A lot of fun. She liked to get down... A LOT, like 4-6 times a day. Spoke perfect English too, no accent. That's about my only exposure to the place(no pun intended).
