Mauser vs. Mosin-Nagant (??) shootout, August 3rd, 2002


On Saturday, August 3rd, 2002, the Mauser invaders and the Mosin-Nagant opponents were to shoot it out at Bellwood Sportsmen's. Ever hear the old saying "What if they held a war and nobody came?"? Well, now we know. The Mauser attackers battled gallantly, but were outshot by one defender using a "lend-lease" 1917 Enfield, I believe it was. All of the other combatants-to-be were fighting on other fronts, or had wimped out due to sunny weather. The most amazing aspect of the battle was the mysterious appearance of some sort of alien being, shooting some kind of futuristic space gun - I think I heard something about AR-something or other. We don't know anything about his effectiveness, as he did not submit a battle damage report or body count.

The identities of the three warriors are shown below - the time-traveler is still a mystery!


Let's hear it for the galant few who braved the elements to battle in this encounter!
