Wednesday Weapons – Peace through Superior Firepower

A very interesting video about an air rifle projecting “peace through superior firepower”.

The Girandoni Air Rifle.

The Girandoni air rifle was an important first. It was the first?repeating rifle of any kind to see military service. It was one of the first uses of a?tubular magazine. And, although it saw service for only 35 years, it predated and was more advanced in design and mechanical technology than the?Henry rifle which arrived fifty years later.
