Default Guns of the Great War

Things have been a little slow here lately, so post your WWI guns. Here's ours, sorry for the pic size, still figuring out Imgur.

Photobucket is literally the worst photo hosting site in the known universe. I used the free version, and was eventually browbeaten into the paid subscription by relentless pop ups and ads. The paid version sucked too, and I eventually canceled it all together. I still get junk / spam from PB all the time even though I have unsubscribed repeatedly.

I recently clicked on another Calguns member's PB pictures in another thread and was immediately bombarded with numerous pop-ups and click thru's in order to see his photos.

The recent customer backlash against the PB "3rd Party Hosting" extortion scheme is well deserved and long overdue.

I've been slowly transferring pics from PB to Imgur. Does anybody know how to control picture size with Imgur?

At the bottom of the image click on 'huge thumbnail'

That will get you an image of this proportion:
