Picture Set 1


 The May 2001 group picture. This year's shootout was well attended, with 50 plus militaria enthusiasts coming from 9 different states, from as far west as Texas, as far south as Florida, and as far north as Pennsylvania and midwest Illinois. This photo was taken immediately following the annual BBQ cookout lunch.


 From left to right, Charles Curtis, Marthaville, LA, Shootout host Bobby Blevins, and Shannon Zeigler, Nashville, TN, examine a damaged follower spring of a Model 99 Short Rifle.


This is a very small glimpse of Bobby Blevins extensive Japanese rifle collection. Captured in this photo are Model 99 Short Rifles. Bobby has one of the most complete collections in the country and some of his rifles have been featured in books and magazine articles on Japanese small arms.
