Attention New Members and those new registering!
We had a lot of problems with spammers and bot attacks with the stock measures provided by the software. The 7 for registration was a fix that we came up with on our own that has worked quite well. Yes it is a PIA for both you and administration to put you onto your chosen username.
If you come back on and your login does not work retry with your username without the 7.

Thanks for joining us from the administration.

... at a police assault vehicle. Chicago, 1940.

I see at least 3 possible Krag's (or are they 91-30's?) here, a flare pistol, a Stevens double, and don't know what else. Note the cleaning rods on at least 2 rifles, and an unknown rifle with side mounted scope...

The original caption says "Sniper" bicycle with 16 barrels...

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

If I was a betting man, I'd wager a dozen cinnamon donuts that Klein's had a healthy hand in this....
