My great grand dad. I don't have a clue what the guns are.

After my Grandfather passed a couple of years ago I got a photo album with about 60 pictures that he took or are of him from his time in Korea.  Here's a sampling:

A bit of searching around and I found this online. Italian howitzer circa the First World War. It was a mobile gun but was not self propelled. Designed in 1908 and built between 1914 and 1917, a total of 44 were built by Armstrong-Pozzuoli and Vickers-Terni. This howitzer was 305 mm.

Wow. Wonder how many mules it took to haul that around?  I dare say the classic "20 mule team" wouldn't be adequate.

Don't mess with her.

Maybe this makes me a jerk, (I hope that isn't anyone's relative) and I know that it wasn't common in that era, but are we sure that's a natural born woman? I'm not so sure...

Don't really know. Truck is late 40s early 50s and doesn't look very new. Best guess would be mid to late 50s.

I believe the truck is a 48-53 vintage. Chevy of course.

Another armed lady. I think she needs some instruction on proper use.

If she shoots like that she might end up with a broken nose or at least a hefty bruise on her forehead.

I wonder if she went hunting in that dress.

Looks like she has on hunting shoes, so I bet so.

 

That is one long shotgun. Anyone got an idea on the make and model?

A woman that likes wheel guns and old Chevy trucks, my kinda lady. Any idea what year this was taken?

It looks like a VW Beetle in the background, and not a particularly new one at the time the photo was taken. I'd guess the photo is late 60's/early 70's at the oldest. Could be a current photo with a B&W filter.
