Wish I had had a picture....

Hubby tells me that when he went to the firing range to practice for hunting season, there he was at one far end, shooting his early Lancaster style flintlock rifle (a type that was originally built in ca. 1785), where you can only shoot one ball each time, and you have to add the powder, add the patch and ball, add powder to the firing pan each time you shoot.

At the far end of the firing range was someone with a machine gun.

Talk about doing the timewarp.
