Not too long ago, I was invited to be part of a World War II weapons demonstration at the Idaho Military History Museum. This museum houses a great collection of artifacts from all the wars that the U.S. has participated in and highlights Idaho's contribution to those conflicts. For this particular evening, a class on U.S. military was getting a World War II weapons demonstration, and I got to tag along.
The next part of the evening was getting a live demonstration of the weapons where the guns were taken outside and the reenactors fired off blank rounds.
