Interesting series of pictures.

Is this a good place to drop an old family gun photo?

This would be my Great-great Grandfather Hiram, on the right, early in the last century, Chenango County(?) New York, with his Savage Model 99 32-40. That gun was passed down through eldest sons and is now in my father's possession. It was actively campaigned in the woods through about 1986, when my brother used it to drop a cow elk in the Swan Valley, Montana.

I have no pix to post, but in northern Idaho I was firing a .38 special, 12-gauge and a 30.06 at the age of seven. I still have a rifle and a .38 Special off-duty. I'm fairly well off to the left and defend my Second Amendment rights. I do not hold NRA membership.

Dangit, I lived in the Swan Valley in the late sixties, near Seeley Lake and the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area!
Wild country back then, which is why I left Texas to go there.
I'd still be there if not for my first wife, a Texas girl, who could not stand the cold...and no running water...and no electricity...and me!:D

note the little dark spot on that Savage 99 reciever...a cartridge counter...also, reciever sights...far superior to open iron and, in my opinion, better than scopes.

for the life of me I can't figure out what the other guy is carrying.

Aslo, note the clothing...it looks better than what we tend to use these days (except...why wear a tie while deer hunting?)

Nice of you to imply that my ancestors were of the upper crust. But look closely and you may notice that he's wearing striped overalls.

And he appears to be wearing the same set a number of years later. This shot is from 1921, Delaware County, NY, my grandpa Harold Vance as a baby, his father Ray Wheeler Baxter, and my great-great grandad Hiram Lewis Baxter, looking not terribly hoity-toity.

While I'm at it here's a shot of great-grandad Ray in the 1950's, with another good sized specimen. Probably just stunned.
