Interesting Guns

One for the military historians out there.  Some of the armory that defended Florida in the Spanish-American War.
Got these on my recent trip.

Perhaps the Americans want to get shot of them?

Re: Interesting Guns

You brought them back from Florida?
How on earth did you manage to get them through Miami immigration and customs? I was there a few months ago and it was quite an experience.
Did you bring them back as hand luggage, or did they have to go in the hold?
I suppose that when you have finished with them, they can always be melted down to make Canon printers.

Were they a breech of security?
This thread look as if it will be a barrel of laughs!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
