I'm all for this! Are we doing it via P.M.? or just posting on the boards? I'm 21 and have been interested in 20th and 21st century arms since I was about 10.

Guess I'll post a question...

"Which firearm is recognized as the world's first assault rifle?

I saw that, that's why I decided to share my age as well.

Correct answer! Let's see if we can get a little trickier.

"What was the STG44 originally referred to as and why?"

"Which WWII service rifle was John F. Kennedy supposedly shot with?"

I believe that would be the Russian T-34.

"What was the German tank built in response to the T-34 tank?"
