Default 1928 Minnesota Team @ Camp Perry

One of my uncles was fortunate enough to find a copy of this photo in my Grandfather's effects after cleaning out his home.

The photo was damaged and torn - but he created three scans. On the far right you can see the targets on the line.

Thought everyone might enjoy this.

That is very cool. I would ask if you could post those at the nationalmatch.us highpower forum. A lot of good shooters from MN hang out there and both them and everyone else would enjoy seeing those.

They are amazingly crisp!

Wow, that is interesting.
A lot of 1903's.
And looks like a 1922 just left of the spotting scope...you can see the Lyman peep sight on it. Is there something on the end of some of the 1903 barrels...some of them look "fat" at the ends.
Thanks for posting.

If find the picture interesting. Today on the line, you see service guys with all manner of issued or purchased GI gear. A guy in BDU pants today, isnt much different than the gentleman wearing the tops of his boots wrapped like the shooter on the extreme L/H side.
