Found this old photo looks like a real tribute to the 2nd Amendment

I think it must have been the "original" Neighborhood Watch

Not sure of the era of photo but looks like a few guys have "Tommy Guns" Those were the days !!

Ya know, one day many years from now, gun nerds like us will look at pictures of us with AR's and lament the fact that they cannot own semi autos with large capacity mags.

It will happen.

that's a great picture. It will be nice to have something like to show my grandkids. I don't want to think about telling them how granddad use to have pistols that held 18 rounds and rifles that shot 800 yards with a 20 round mag etc etc...

Only if we let it. Then only if we refuse to fight.

True. Fight we must. I could not bear to be humiliated like some of our brothers/sisters in other states.

They don't build gun owners like that anymore.

Today, due to pounds and girth, it'd be hard to get three in an F350 longbed.

Are you sure that’s a gun club pic and not a pic of a posse!

Moonshiners?

I bet there was none of that shotgun snob type mentality back then either...
I also bet the guys with the huntin rifles never asked the Thompson guys "what you need a gun like that for" blah blah!!!

Call it a hunch, but I would wager that there wasn't much carjacking and related activity going on in that county at that time.

But morality can be a double-edged sword and it would have probably been a treasured memory if you somehow caught a glimpse of some chick's knee.

They are interchangeable. I have seen it on job applications and school tests bubble sheets under the race category.

RACE:

O black
O american indian
O hispanic
O klan ; non-hispanic
O pacific islander or asian
O other

Honest.

Thats what I had thought when I first saw that pic this morning; I thought it looked like a pic I had seen of one of the groups of people who had hunted down one of the big criminal names like Bonnie and Clyde or Dillinger back in the 30s.

HELL NO.

One day many years from now, gun nerds like us will take pictures exactly like that one, but in color and 5 mb digital.

That's what the NFAOA [ http://nfaoa.org/ ] is trying to do, anyway.

Thats what it looks like to me. I think I see a badge and a set of handcuffs.

I saw a couple of Thompsons, a couple Krags, shotguns and a lever action.

LOL, true. A Toyota would have about 15k in damage.



And in an accident..... hit the steering wheel or dash and you'd have about 150k in damage to your face.

And whats with the guy center bottom with the wheel gun in his nose?

That's back when people would dress nice for a posse. Nowdays you would just get a bunch of guys in wife-beaters and cut-off shorts.
