Title

Gustav Becker Shooting his Chime Target, c. 1937

Description

This image shows Gustav Becker firing his rifle at the custom made gun chimes. John M. Browning invented the chimes for Gustav in the 1920s. This device was used to make music by rapidly firing bullets at the different white boxes. Mr. Becker used the chimes to play the tune to "My Old Kentucky Home" to entertain his on lookers. This was one of the many shooting stunts performed by Gustav Becker. The man in the center of the photograph is unknown.
