This thread exemplifies why I own C&R ex-military guns. I have no clue what the history of any of them are, but the fact that there's a slight chance 1 of them have a story like Sgt. Bierkle's 1917 and that I mite be shooting a gun that saved a US serviceman's life while he was working on saving my Country is enough for me.

I believe the USMC museum would be a fine permanent home for the gun. It's not an important or unusually impressive firearm, but it has a very important and impressive story, a story about a Marine family. His fellow Marines are more likely to be at the USMC museum than the National Firearms museum, they deserve a chance to read Sgt. Bierkle's story when they visit the museum.
