WWII Re-enactment - Rockford, Illinois

This was really, really fun! All of the re-enactors are really good.

Friday, September 5, 2008


Three weeks I got a job. Once a day I go over and check on Wrigley, a dog in our neighborhood.

He is a 16 week old golden retriever that is very cute.

I give him water and let him outside.

.22 Luger

This is a .22 Luger that our grandpa gave to us. It was made in America and sold to Germany during WWII. Officiers used it, except in the war, they used 9mm. This is a remake that is the exact same gun except it is a .22.

Originally the Luger was made by an American, in America, but the Americans weren't interested in buying it. He brought it to Germany and sold it there.

We (me and my dad) are just about ready to go out to a shooting range.

Shooting the luger had less kickback than I thought and the shells went farther than I thought. The clip holds ten bullets and jams occassionally but usually only when you fire too fast.
