We kick off our new season of Snapshots with an image from the April 1942 issue of American Rifleman. “It's off to war we go. With my P’14 and my trustee hoe, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho, hi ho.” Okay, with apologies to both the Home Guard and all seven dwarves, we bring you this week’s Snapshots.
When you have magazines dating back to 1885, you end up flipping through pages and chuckling at times over what you find. Back before there were cartridge guns, hunters had to do it the old fashioned way with the muzzleloading longrifle. Why he is reloading and why the buffalo are not roaming, we have no idea.
