Here's one.

He could unload two colt .45's into 1 fence post while his horse was at a full trot. He mailed this picture to a winemucca bank after robbing it and had to flee to Argentina because of it. Hometown hero; born in Beaver, Utah.

Hiram Berdan

He was an engineer, inventer, and military officer. He invented the Berdan rifle, and the Berdan primer which is the vain of all reloaders.


(This is the rifle the Mosin Nagant replaced as the Russian service rifle. Berdan Rifle-1869-1891)



Soviet sniper credited with 429 kills. He was granted the status of Hero of the Soviet Union (basically their Medal of Honor) in 1965.

TIM-MAY!!! Just a good ole boy from the backwoods of the Sov. Union- when they drink horse milk. An ethnic Yakut.

Timur Matveyevich Okhlopkov. The Soviet military was dominated by the Russians that looked down their noses at anyone that was not Russian. Timur was slighted until some time after the war due to his ethnicity.

Rather than having me post a pic of someone obscure, will post this for the group.

Wait for the video to come up- takes about 10 seconds or so. A reminder that a good man (or woman) that knows how to use a rifle owns a bit of ground 1/2 mile across.
