French Resistance cache unearthed including STENs named ‘Pepette’ and ‘Alice’ (PHOTOS)

A couple remodeling an old home in north-central France found a cache of ammo, grenades and submachine guns hidden under a granite floor, The Lyonne Republicaine reported.

The find was made in July by the couple in the Quarré-les-Tombes area, about 150 miles away from Paris. Cached under the floor were three STEN guns, over a dozen Britsh Mills bomb type fragmentation grenades, three handguns, more than 1,000 rounds of ammo, and several Bren light machine gun magazines.

Cool find. I had an opportunity a while back to shoot a mark 2 sten, and was amazed how something so inexpensive looking could function as well as it did. Although it can of course be used simply as a bullet hose, if you use the proper technique you can wring some decent accuracy out of it also.

I guess it's better than the other legal alternative, having them destroyed. At least in a museum someone might get a history lesson out of it.
