Vicksburg, MS> We got going the next day and headed to admire the Mississippi River.
Standing on the bluff, you can imagine the shore batterys aiming at the Union ironclads below. The view is majestic.
Leaving there we wandered up through the middle of the tourist and historic district to a wonderful place called The Corner Drug Store. Now all of you gun bloggers pay attention! This post is for FHB, Ah, Shoot, The Smallest Minority, The Other Side of Kim, Dash, and Near The Salty City and all the other gun guys that I wish would link with me. This place is a treasure trove of gun history! muskets and deer heads! lots of bullets and cannonballs!
antique shotguns, muskets, WWI and WWII rifles, clay jugs, Civil War pistols, and swords!
A good pic of Marian and Joe Gerache (the owner). He was extremely nice and warmly welcomed us to his store. If you go to Vicksburg, do not miss his shop!
That was great, time to go get a coke.
