I'm 67 and as a youngster use to enjoy going to the County Fair and local carnivals where there was always a "shooting gallery" with rabbits, ducks that moved and pipes the rotated in a circle.  I really likes the Winchester and Remington pump actions with the Winchester being my favorite.  I'm not sure of the model of rifle that was used nor the ammunition.  I had to be pretty low powers stuff, maybe what they use to call CB caps?  I don't remember ever having a failure to feed problem which now in my mind would seem unusual given the difference between length of ctg difference between CB and .22 Short.  Anyone have any information to help me clear up my questions?

Winchester made gallery ammo (presumably non-frangible, and I'm guessing some sort of cellulose based propellant, but that's just a guess) specifically for this application. I recently learned about the stuff from Jolly Bill when I purchased a M62A gallery gun. He had some ammo too, but I didn't purchase that.

Supergimp/Steve shows the front of the box of Winchester .22 Short Gallery ammo.

Here's some additional pictures below of the same box and the Gallery loading tubes that were used.  Note on the back of the box the details of those cartridges used in shooting galleries.

The last picture is me at the Coney Island shooting gallery taken in May of 1956 using live ammo.  If you hit the bullseye, it took your picture which I did and it did.  I do not shoot left handed.  It either reversed the negative before the print was made or another theory is that the picture is taken thru a mirror to prevent someone from shooting the camera or ???

You can use that one if you'd like.

Atta boy Michael.

I tried to reverse it but I couldn't discover the trick.  You're the Man.

Thanks, Jolly.

Always glad to help!!  If you look in Microsoft Picture Manager there is a "Flip" tab or, I actually did it on my MAC in the photo editing app.

Holy Crap Vince.  You've got a good eye (and magnifier).

Shortly after 10:00 PM which meant Mike Pore, the casual observer sailor and shipmate standing next to me, and I had a little less than 2 hours to get back to the ship.

I'll bet you can't see "BENRUS" across the face of the watch that my folks gave me for my high school graduation present about 2 years prior.

Thanks Vince.

Jolly
