Talk about oldies! This is a short movie shot by William Heise and produced by Thomas Edison. It shows Annie Oakley firing rifles.

That is great footage. I read a book about her so it was great to see her in action!

There was a special about her on American Experience (PBS). She was truly remarkable with any sort of firearm from a shotgun to handgun. The clip shows her shooting silver dollars out of the air as the guy throws them up. She could take 5 or 6 silver dollars in her own hand, throw them up in the air, and shoot all of them before they hit the ground.

Great find Jerry. Thanks for posting.

I was always good with a rifle but never good with a handgun... and that has got worse with essential tremor.

There is that old saying... “can’t hit the broad side of a barn”... well, sometimes I “can’t hit the broad side of a barn” WHEN I AM INSIDE THE BARN!

For anyone interested in Thomas Edison visit the Edison/Ford Museum in Ft Myers, Fl. and their winter homes. They were camping buddies also and took a huge entourage of gear and servants with them.
