Gave my Browning book to a buddy. Madis book went to my son.  It's in one of my books and I have a lot of books. 

Schuetzenbob probably already knows who it is.  Huh
  

If a waffle falls over on a breakfast table and no one is there to hear it, did the waffle make a sound?

I barely remember Chris Westergaard's son, August, a fine marksman in his own right.

My family was with me at Eau Claire for their annual Father's Day match many years ago, and we ran into Augie at the Burger King.  My middle son, 12 years old at the time, tried to trade his younger sister to Augie for a rifle barrel he had won!

These are photos that showed up on a San Francisco history website. The man looks vaguely familiar and one of his medals is marked "SFSV" San Francisco Schuetzen Verein. Any help would be appreciated;

Bob, 

Thanks for sharing the great historic photo.  I spent about 30-40+ mins or so looking thru the images within the 1909 SFSV golden jubilee program and images of the SF Call but failed to make a strong connection with the photos within.  Obviously a Fairly successful shooter given the medals.   The collar on the coat differs from many of the photos I came across and from the SFSV uniform I have in my possession.    Hard to guess at how both time and weight change a person over the years.   Best Guess (or worse guess...)  Capt F. Attinger who was not pictured in the jubilee but had this photo in one page of the Call.   Not a lot of members possessed a goatee or chin hair of any sort that didn't morph into a full beard.  Probably wrong but perhaps a starting point.   Is that slight scarring above the left eye?   May help.  (is that tie he's wearing a dead match for the newspaper photo?)  The pinned hat and plum with star would certainly be SFSV.

oodmoff,

I think you're right! From time to time these old photos show up in the Bay Area, and people want to know who they were and what they were doing. Often, the people who have these photos are relatives. Thank you!  Cheesy

Searching the internet uncovered a page of The San Francisco Call for 08/05/1905.  Therein was an article on a recent outing and shooting match of the San Francisco Turner Verein.  The man in charge of that event was named and pictured: Capt. Fred Attinger.  That man's goatee is noticeably fuller and his hair thinner than in the first photo.  But allowing for the 1905 depiction being a sketch rather than a photo, he's clearly the same man that's in both previous photos shown here.

The article also notes that Attinger joined the "shooting section" of the Turners in "eight years ago" and rose to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant before being named Captain in January, 1905 when the previous group leader, Capt. Ott, retired.  The article also noted several times that Attinger was well-liked, respected, and a successful shooter within his organization.

So, was the "shooting section" the "Schuetzen Verein"?  Or did Attinger shift his allegiance sideways sometime between 1905 and 1909?

The owner of the photo got back to me, and he thinks that Fred "Fritz" Attinger was his father's maternal grandmother's brother.
