“Boat Launch is a spayed female and is turning 4 years old next month. She is very friendly and loves to play fetch. She gets along great with other dogs and kids but likes to chase cats. She is a high energy level so needs an active family, she will not be adopted to anyone living in an apartment. Stop in and meet Boat Launch.”

Gewehr 1888 Karabiner

Manufactured by Mauser in the late 19th century, the Gewehr.88 was an answer to the Mle 1886 Lebel rifle adopted beyond the Rhine river. It loaded a five-rounds single-column Mannlicher en-bloc clip of 7.9x57mm M/88 cartridges.

In 1905, many would be modified to use stripper clips of the new S-Patrone spitzer bullets - again matching the earlier French innovation - to supplement the stocks of Gewehr 98.
