Andechs is where the Neuschwanstein Owner walked into the local lake and never went back. I´m not a fan of Neuschwanstein cause it´s pretty new(build a few years before WW1) time of the last kings etc.

Here some more, one with zoom and one to Close !!!

Well, just found out from my parents that, if things are somewhat normal in 2 more years, we'll be tracing my Grandfather's route from D-Day+1 to Munich and eventually Salzburg over a week or two. 283rd Artillery Battalion which saw 236 straight days of combat without a break while serving with 14 different infantry divisions. I'll get to see some of France, Holland, Germany, and Austria with the trip. Ought to be pretty cool.

Took a whole week off work for the first time ever in a non-medical capacity and proceeded to do absolutely nothing due to sick cats and lack of planning. Thumbs Down

Man, and I thought the Washington monument was rather phallic looking! lol

Impulse, yep, he was a hell of a guy from what I hear. Died before my mom and dad got married, so I never got to meet him. He was attached to headquarters battalion as an aircraft mechanic and impromptu pilot for aerial forward observation missions when they needed someone on short notice. Family legend is that my mom, and therefore myself, were a mere inch and a half away from never existing. He was gliding over a Wehrmacht position (they flew Piper Cubs, so they'd get up high, turn off the engine, and just glide down to prevent the enemy from getting a warning they were there from engine noise) while his passenger was photographing their emplacements when some enterprising infanterist decided to take some pot shots at them with their rifle. Luckily, the Piper Cub has a center control stick that you straddle vs a yoke like some of the other FO planes had, so his legs were spread and the one round that did find it's mark went right between them and exited through the roof with no further incident.

He's also got a bronze star for valor in combat, but he wouldn't tell anyone what he did because it was classified at the time. Mom is in the process of getting his war records from the DoD to finally figure out why he got it.

Dang Tallen, that is phenomenal. My grandfather flew on B-17's, but thankfully the war ended before he flew any missions.

Beautiful Spyder.

Man I love shooting clays. I recently sold my 870, I never used it. But I would like to replace it with a O/U.

I bought a Tippmann! Ordered a Tippmann M4-22 Pro. I was looking for something that truly replicated the AR-15, and Tippmann smashed it out of the park. Pretty excited to pick it up and take her out.

I can tell you now a Little bit more about getting a weapon license in Germany:



To get a firearm you must be member in a big Shooting Club for min. one year, also you have to shoot more than 12 times a year/each month or min. 18 times, to go on vacation for example. Also you Need to have sucessfull Expertise and a clean criminal Record.

After one year of Shooting you can ask for a "WBK" for Sport shooters (german short form of: Weapon Owners Card).
If ... you are now allowed to buy each weapon you Need to shoot your diszipline, for me example skeet-Rifle´s. The WBK allows to buy and store at home in a safe. Transport(breach empty) to the range is just in a locked case allowed, ammunition must be stored somewhere else than in the locked rifle case. (Walking in puplic with an armed gun etc. Needs a Special weapon license called "Waffenschein" in english may something like Weaponticket !?!?!? Just high risk Persons will get one of them but no normal human)

If you stop be a shooter you can loose your licensen, cause no shoot = no Need, that´s A bit of german firearm-laws





Any questions ? If ...
