  1. Schuetzen style shooting was very popular in Wisconsin, especially in the Milwaukee area, due to the large number of German emigrants that settled in the state.
  2. https://www.forgottenweapons.com/parabellum-1914-17-germanys-ultimate-aircraft-maxim/
  3. I strongly recommend Hank Shaw’s cookbook, “Duck Duck Goose”: Duck, Duck, Goose: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Waterfowl, Both Farmed and Wild https://a.co/d/jfMNMJ4
  4. Its my understanding the Keltech wasn't that popular. At one time it was about the only bull pup on the market, but once the IWI Tavor and newer version of the Steyr AUG became available, Keltech sales dropped drastically. I have the SAR version of the Tavor and like it a lot, while not as inherently accurate like an AR, its a lot of fun to shoot.
  5. Yes and no. The AKM is always a stamped receiver, but there were 3 types of AK47s. The first type used a stamped receiver but had too many quality control issues in manufacturing, so the Soviet’s went to milled receivers for the type 2 & 3. By 1959, they had improved their stamping technology to develop the AKM.
  6. In Wisconsin, it can vary by county. You only get one buck tag and generally a antlerless tag, but you can purchase extra antlerless tags with the number of extra tags set at the county level.
  7. Its a great movie but if I recall correctly it was a made for TV film (for the A&E channel) and never had a theatrical release so it wouldn't have been eligible for an Oscar.
  8. I strongly recommend Hank Shaw’s cookbook, Buck Buck Moose: Buck, Buck, Moose: Recipes and Techniques for Cooking Deer, Elk, Moose, Antelope and Other Antlered Things https://a.co/d/hR3SaK1
  9. John Ford took an awful lot of liberties when it came to uniforms. The best example is the Horse Soldiers. The troopers are more or less dressed as 1870s/1880s cavalry not any thing like the 1863 time period that the movie depicts.
  10. In the Uk, Europe and many other places, excluding the US, mature bucks, of any deer species, are called stags. Does are referred to as hinds.
  11. She is off duty Israeli military, not an armed civilian.
  12. Off duty IDF are required to have their issued rifles with them and yes they are also required to carry empty chamber with a chamber flag.
  13. My first job after library school had me filing cards for the card catalog. I got my revenge by putting in the library’s first electronic catalog to replace said card catalog!
  14. The Poles also stopped Soviet expansion into central Europe in 1920. Unfortunately for the Poles, the Soviets didn't forget.
  15. I believe those are referred to as stalking safeties, they are for hunting. You can carry the gun fully cocked and are much quieter than cocking the hammers.
