I'm sorry, but I really just love how pained those guys are by shooting those guns. I can't tell which is more punishing: the blast from the flash pan or the actual recoil. Either way, it's hilarious!

Yeah I have watched that video dozens of times but never really noticed the intense effect of the flash pan going off until you mentioned it. Yikes! probably exacerbated by those chapeu de fer type helmets they wear

Winning a shützenfest was a big deal! This guy's portrait was painted on his house in the 16th century when he won one. I think it is a bath-house?

I love these kinds of murals in Central Europe, some villages are covered in them. Anyone ever seen any others related to martial arts? I wonder if there is a fechtschule champion out there somewhere...
