This brings back a memory of early spring 1983 in Germany. I got a ride to the big PX at Mainz-Kastel to go shopping. I was thinking about buying either a camera or a pistol. I reviewed the stocks of both and decided on either a Belgium Browning 9mm Hi-Power or a Canon AE-1 35mm camera with several lens; both came to about $400. I ended up deciding on the Canon 35mm camera with a 50mm lens and a 75-300mm telephoto lens. It turned out to be much more useful during my tour in all of the slides I took of my 4 years there while in the Army.
So? Now, looking back, what would you have done?
