Our Poster Project is nearly 2.5x over funded! We definitely appreciate that every dollar has the value of someone’s hard work. So I have sequestered myself for the past five days in order to learn new video editing and special effects software skills for the site. I hope the effort shows as I’m presenting this first improved animation as a big, public “Thank you” to our supporters.

On rare occasion collectors have stumbled into shortened, WWI-vintage M1917 rifles without much explanation. We’ve since learned that these guns were part of aid sent to China during WWII and modified to fit their small-statured troops.
