We (Murphy and I) did it a bit differently, we went shooting…
Specifically, old WWII rifles and pistols…
He’ got a post up HERE, and here’s one pic of all the rifles together.
Murphy’s SC 03A3 is missing because he was shooting it at the time. Four old warriors that still work and will put rounds on paper or anything else you want!!!
And for those who don’t believe you can load 2 rounds in an 8 round clip- Here ya go…
They load just fine.
And Murph was good enough to take me up for a ride in his plane. We visited the bridge at Antietam Battlefield and Harper’s Ferry.
Here’s an overview of the battlefield. This is from on top the observation tower, looking back toward the main building and Dunker Church (the small white building center of the frame across the road).
This is Dunker Church at the battlefield. It’s the small white building across the road at top center of the frame.
Burnside Bridge, one of the bloodiest battle grounds… Looking down the creek toward the main battle.
And here’s Harper’s Ferry and the confluence of the Shenandoah and the Potomac. The Shenandoah is the dirty one on the left.
Good friends, good shooting (pistols, the rifles sucked; actually “I” sucked the rifles shot fine), good food and a little time in the air. It’ doesn’t get much better. And I can’t think of a better way to remember those who did not make it back. Salut!!!
