Is it any wonder why I always liked Eisenhower?

Why does he have his nose in the scope?

You don't know much. smirk

The scope has a rutting buck scent detector.

Is that a double rifle drilling, the lower barrel look large for a standard drilling and the action looks narrow for a shotgun x shotgun / rifle drilling?


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

No doubt a bock drilling in 20-11.2X72Rmm-5.6X35.

It's obvious from the photograph... crazy

Wow! Eisenhower, Omar Bradley and a drilling!
Do you have any background or the source of the picture that you can share.
Thanks for sharing this.

I wonder if he "relieved" a Nazi big shot of this rifle during the last part of the war?

Sorry you missed it. I missed a sweet 1900 Steyr M/S because I forgot to check a certain classified. It was slicker than either and a bit less $s. Rusty
