2006 Dodge Charger RT with John (ASP)
Check out the ASP's Blog: (http://autoshowcaseproject.blogspot.com/) Auto-Showcase Project (ASP) presents John's 2006 Dodge Charger RT. My good friend Pablo and I went to Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ to see some drag racing. We found a group of Mopars burning some rubber. John's 2006 Dodge Charger RT looks like a police cruiser from afar. Actually, this Charger RT and the Charger Police Cruiser do share the same characteristics except for the placement of the gear shifter. John's outlook of his Charger RT is to go fast. I thank John for showcasing his 2006 Dodge Charger RT to the ASP. I also want to thank my good friend Pablo for allowing me to incorporate his music into the video.

American Snipers at the Turn of the Century, World War 1 & Beyond | Collector's & History Corner
ASP's Blog: (http://autoshowcaseproject.blogspot.com/) ASP PRESENTS: American Snipers at the Turn of the Century, World War 1 & Beyond Sniping came into being at the turn of the 20th century for the Americans. It was a skill that was necessary in conflict, but kept disappearing after a conflict or war would end and peacetime settled. Then when another conflict or war beginnings, sniper training had to be reintroduced. While World War 1 was occurring, the Americans used the Springfield 1903 service rifle and made it into a sniper rifle by placing a scope on it and handing it to their best shot in the group. This video focuses on the Springfield 1903 sniper rifles with the Warner and Swasey scope, and M84 scope. It then focuses on the MC1 Garand rifle with the Kollmorgen scope.

Military and Police Shotguns of the 20th Century | Collector's & History Corner
ASP's Blog: (http://autoshowcaseproject.blogspot.com/) ASP PRESENTS: Military and Police Shotguns used during the 20th century. This video focuses on the history of shotgun development and use in by the American military and police at the turn of the 20th century. The shotguns came in 2 different models: the riot model or the trench gun. The Winchester Model 1897 or Model 97 was of John Browning design. It was a great innovation and top of the line in 1897 that stayed in production until 1957. The Model 97 was surpassed by the Winchester Model 12 or Model 12, but people and police departments wanted the Model 97. The Model 97s were used during World War 1 against the German Armed Forces. The Model 12s were not sent overseas to fight in WW1. The German Imperial Government complained to the International Red Cross that the US were using shotguns during World War 1. Their argument was that the shotguns used soft lead bullets and not full metal jackets. This was the same government that used the flamethrower, poison gas, unrestricted submarine warfare, and the bombing of civilian cities. World War 2 occurs and there was a shortage of shotguns thus enters the "Blanket Procurement." The government requested people to donate their shotguns and asked gun stores to provide them their shotguns. The Blanket Procurement ended in 1943. Shotguns have helped train anti-aircraft gun personnel by teaching them the fundamentals of leading and in aerial gunnery. The shotguns were placed on a special mount that simulated a .50 cal gun. After World War 2, the shotguns that remained in the military were the Model 12, Stevens 520-30, and Stevens 620. What to look for when looking for a military combat shotgun or trench guns used during the war: 1) stamped US ordnance bombs, 2) stock markings, 3) bayonet lug, and 4) original bluing. Trench shotguns in WW1 and WW2 used the M1917 bayonet. Surprisingly, despite the M1917 bayonet being obsolete in 1945 it stayed in use until the 1980s. Originally, shotguns used paper cartridges to hold the shot and gun powder. Paper cartridges were prevalent and used during WW1. There were some advances made after WW1 and into WW2 where the shells were made of brass. Plastic shell holders were not created during WW2 since plastic was still in its infancy. Shotgun development for the military became stagnant after the Korean War, but it did see some advances over the years between Vietnam and the Gulf War. The US military finally realized that the old shotguns they had in storage were inferior and needed to be replaced. During this time, Remington, Mossberg, Winchester, and Stevens (just to name a few) were producing shotguns for the police and civilian sectors. Remington 870s were common place with Police and Law Enforcement agencies though they were quite expensive. The military made a call towards firearms manufacturers to produce a rugged, reliable, and sturdy shotgun that can uphold harsh environments. In the end, Mossberg won the military contract when they produced the Mossberg 590A1 series of shotguns. Currently, the Marines are using the Benelli series of semi-auto shotguns instead of the reliability of the pump action. The method of slam fire can be used on the Model 97 and Ithaca Model 37. Both shotguns do not have a disconnect and can be slam fired. CORRECTION: The slam fire technique can be used on the Model 97 and Ithaca Model 37, but not on the Mossberg 500/590 series of shotguns.
