    Is your Bess made by Pedersoli ? I like the way you have it displayed.

    Regardless of the history I think it's a nice display.Im sure that if our American cousins came across a Bess they would have used it.

    Just a bit like a Vietnamese displaying a M-16 with his flag.

    Nice display. The BB is iconic and associated with the AWI on both sides. Agree, there were variations but the one displayed, and my Navy Arms/Pedersoli are very representative for the purpose intended. My Bennington flag flies outside daily. Despite all the stories/theories of it's origin it is also representative of America's battle for freedom. BTW, I live in a semi-rural location. Occasionally, we will see a car stopped outside and someone getting out to take a picture of the flag. 20 years, never a complaint. As for the critics, ignore them. And continue to "Do yer own thang".:thumbs up:

    To no one in particular, but the OP never asked " hey guys what do you think of this?" He never asked for anyone's opinion, but they were given freely. This is EXACTLY the stuff that pushes people away and EXACTLY the reason I don't post pictures here nor post my opinion often.
    Larry; I like your display and am glad you shared.

    This is a forum. To post is to invite comments. Sometimes the comments are all positive & no one gets their feathers ruffled. Sometimes not so.
