My other favorite big game hunter: Jim Corbett. Most famous for hunting man-eaters in India. This is his .450-.400 box lock double rifle that he preferred for tiger hunting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Corbett

Last one for the day. Possibly the greatest elephant hunter of all time: W.D.M. "Karamojo" Bell. This guy took over a thousand elephants using a 7x57mm (.275 Rigby) throwing 173 grain military ammo (fmj solids). For him it was all about shot placement... he was the master of the brain shot from any angle, especially tucking one in behind the ear. I've taken this shot and it is insanely difficult... this guy did it successfully over a thousand times.

Garegin Nzhdeh, Armenian freedom fighter during his voluntary service in the Bulgarian army during the First Balkan War (1913).

Always carry spare ammo.

Why do I feel his mustache doubles as a close combat weapon?

Yeah, but in those days a Colt AR-15 was only $175 and didn't come with a $200 transfer tax!

Since machine guns have had a $200 tax since 1934 and the Colt m-16 was introduced in 1964, what do you mean it didn't have a $200 transfer tax?

Well he clearly said a Colt AR-15 which is not an M16.   No stamps for AR15s.
