And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Got to love the 2 handed tea cup gripReplyDelete
Gotta love it all. Makes me want to get my hands on an old WWII 1911 and test myself on shooting it and field stripping it.Delete
Seems they are using tracer - presumably just for the cameras. And somewhat blase about hearing protection back then.
Yeah, Trigger and muzzle discipline was lacking as well. But hey, it was the times...Delete
Hearing or eye protection was unheard of when I qualified with the M1 & 1911 back in 1961. I'm regretting it now since I'm about 60% deaf in both ears and suffer from severe tinnitus.ReplyDelete
I hear that ( yuk yuk ). I have the same tinnitus from unprotected shooting in my teens, plus running a lawn mowing business and listening to a roaring, smoke belching mower for hours at a time. I'm lucky I can hear at all, I suppose.Delete
