I've just read "Hitler's Occult War" by Michael Fitzgerald. Too much of it is derivative for my taste, he seems to have taken one part "Occult Reich" by J H Brennan, One Part "The Spear Of Destiny"...

I watch "Flash" and "Arrow" but not "Gotham". I like "D C's Legends Of Tomorrow" as well . Oh and Happy St Barbara's Day (Dec 4) everyone.

"Bazooka" ? It looked more like a Russian RPG to me. Perhaps it was supposed to be a Panzerfaust, but they didn't come in until late in WWII.

Well if the conversation takes place before "Crystal Skull" I would want to say something like. "Oh for heaven's sake Indy, just MARRY Marion will you ! You know that she's the girl for you"

Indy today may well want heavier firepower or greater capacity in his handgun so I think that something like a Desert Eagle in one of the magnum calibres (or .50 AE) might suit him.
