    found this great WW2 German photo for desk top

    Found this recently while gathering photos of WW2. I tried it as desktop background and it looks great. Its so far the best I have come across for a battle photo. Anyone else got a favorite ?

    Over the years I have made a folder full of images that are my screen saver.
    A few of the images do stand out as compared to others!

    I ran across this picture while learning about the 8CM WWII German mortar that we had for sale:

    I hate to be a spoil-sport but the picture of the FJ in Russia shooting the MG42 is my brother in the piney woods of southeast Texas. Zavalla to be exact. Yes I know it has been around. J

    I thought so. No one is shooting a 42 off the flat of his hand Camp Perry style.

    Not hard to shoot that way if you are 27 yrs old and 6' 2" and dont care but yes, not the best way. J

    I carried and shot an M60 for training stuff fairly often, and fired off the shoulder a lot. Not really hard to do when you are a fairly fit 6'3" guy. Wish I was still younger and fitter Still tall though...

    thanks for the update but still love the pic

    tell your brother thanks for the use of the pic. I carried the M60 in Vietnam I did use it a few times from shoulder for rapid response but most often 6" off the ground to catch the little buggers laying down shooting at me. I ended up with M60 after they tried to force me to carry the XM16E1. Up till our deployment I carried a full auto M14. Now that's one you cant do much good from shoulder on full auto. But excellent from bipod on ground
