Throwback Thursday: Shooting a .50 Cal in 1983

Here’s a look back into the past.

I love to look back into the archives to see how far we’ve come technologically. Think of rifle technology now compared to 30 years ago. Modern rifles are certainly lighter and more accurate in some cases. Watch the video below to see just how much of a leap we’ve made. Yes, it’s OK to laugh.

That .50 caliber was much different than what you see today. Then again, so is the clothing and the hairstyles.

For those of you who grew up in Michigan and thought that guy in the glasses looked familiar, that was Fred Trost. This video contains archive footage from Michigan Out of Doors, a popular outdoors show.
