Those are some wonderful old pictures, but every time I look at some of the old sporting art I can't help but notice the poor muzzle control..... many of those shotgunners of old had pictures taken with the muzzles pointing at their heads while others like the guy on the second last picture front row on the grass with the old double shoved in his buddy's stomach.
I wonder how many of those guns were actually loaded!

It ain't whether you hit a bird that matters, it's the fun you have even if you don't.

Great old pictures. Thanks for sharing.

That picture with the guns with slings looks Bavarian to me. Note the hats and the gun with the cheekpiece.

That shot of the five trap shooters, three seated, looks like Mark Arie on the right end seated. Our left as looking at the photo.

Great photos although I'd have to wonder how those short barrels worked given what we all use now...

Battle- I noticed the same thing - slings and checkpieces appear to be standard for the group in the photo. Looks like it may have been an outing of local schutzencorps <g>. The fifth guy in from the left looks to be fresh off the boat.

Im not hocking anything, but the last group are all available as reprints from the MN Hist Soc. For a very small fee. Check you local/State, you may be suprised.

The 2nd from last , in the 2nd group, is the St.Paul rod and gun club, early 1900s. I still go and shoot a couple of clays there from time to time.
