Here's a quiэkie

The rocket shot was late, somewhat noisy, and pretty much invisible, due to the cloud cover. Still, kinda cool.

For those of you who still check in because there are reputedly gun pictures here, this one's for you. A Classic:

The Erma Maschinen Pistole 40 - popularly called "The Schmeisser," even though it was designed not by Hugo Schmeisser, but by Ernst Vollmer at Erma.

This particular weapon is in the collection of the National Infantry Museum at Fort Benning, Ga. (Sorry, they aren't all captioned - that takes a LOT of time!)
