Are those breaks or suppressors on the end of the rifles in the top left? I don't think .22lr need breaks, and they don't look like suppressors (I could be wrong of course).Those guys out in Boerne have some serious rifles...
I might go to one of the competitions there to see what it's like.
Those are "tuners". With a change in ammo, you can adjust the tuner, which either moves the weight inward or outward, to tighten the groups. They work really well and there are many designs out there with most people making their own. You change the harmonics or vibration of the barrel.Are those breaks or suppressors on the end of the rifles in the top left?
This topic, as well as other Texas history, always continues to fascinate me!Schützenvereins were founded in the Unites States by German-Americans and acted as a social club for their communities. Each club had a range for target shooting and often also a bar. Larger clubs could have extensive facilities such as an inn, dance hall, music pavilion, zoo, bowling alley, roller coaster, refreshment stands, athletic field, picnic grounds, and other amusements. It was common for tens of thousands of people to attend a major event.
The popularity of these facilities began to decline in America around 1917, when the anti-German sentiment from World War I restricted the activities of German-Americans and led to the prohibition of the use of the German language in public. Many businesses and organizations changed their German names or dissolved. The American Schützenvereine were dealt another serious blow in 1919 when the "Prohibition Act" outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages, the consumption of which was casually mixed with shooting activities.
