On one of our recent outings, one of the guys brought along a nice piece of history. A Browning 1919 machine gun. This particular gun was only semi auto to comply with government restrictions on the subjects of our country. The trigger on the Browning has to be lifted upward in order to make it fire. Unlike traditional triggers where they are pulled to the rear. This upward movement and the fact that it was a very stiff trigger, made shooting the gun quite difficult.
