What are you planning to do to celebrate the 101st Armistice Day?
I just realized that the 100th anniversary of Frank Luke's glorious berserker death had passed without me noticing. The whole 100th anniversary of WW1 has really been somewhat of a non event, kind of disappointing.
15 years ago I read a script for a Frank Luke movie that was going to be called September Rampage, but I guess it never got made. Too bad.

My buddies wanted to shoot some old guns to celebrate Armistice Day, October 7th. I informed them that October 7th did not mark the end of The Great War, but that it would have to wait a little more than a month.

So we went out and shot some old guns because it was Sunday and the weather was good.

I've been watching the shit out of The Great War on youtub. The Battle of Jutland episode really stands out as being fantastic. I'm about 2/3 through 1916. Brutal.

There are hundreds of episodes in that Great War series.
Here's an old TV series from 1964 on the Great War in only 28 episodes:

I don't see many WW1 guns at the shooting range like I used to, but maybe these will be dusted off on 11/11/18 to commemorate one hundred years after the guns fell silent on the Western Front of the Great War.

Plenty of people (including me) still have the old 1891 Mosin-Nagant (not the M44 spike-folder carbine), but remember that the Russians signed an armistice agreement for 28 days with the Germans on 15 December 1917, and on 22 December 1917 they signed the peace treaty of Brest-Litovsk that took Russia out of the Great War. ...So, yeah, doesn't matter. Shoot your Mosin-Nagants if that's the closest thing you have to a Great War gun.

100 years ago, the guns were silenced.
Here's some pictures of some of those guns.
