If you see this, I didn't really forget Gisele Bundchen, just didn't list all Braziian models also working here. Too many.

But I certainly know who she is, and she is worth about 150 million USD, probably the richest model in the world. She is married to a US football player, with the New York Jets, I think. She got in trouble for criticizing his team mates for dropping his passes in one game, defending her husband.
Oh the HORROR of it all. That US football player is New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady. We here in New England don't use his name and the NY Jets in the same sentence unless its to report how badly we beat them in a game.

Douglas Jr, or anybody,

Is it known what holster was used by the Brazilian Expeditionary Force in Italy?
