    My Grandfather's Brother

    I had never heard of this in all the family stories. He was supposedly a trick shooter performing here and there.

    I couldn't find anything an a 'Sebo' rapid fire attachment either. Lots of links for vacuum cleaners.

    Better a "crack shot" than a "crack pot!"

    Family legends were that he was also a ballroom dance teacher often receiving 'gifts' from his lady students and suspected of being a gigolo as well. Definitely an interesting character.
