Caption Contest: Karl Barth

I just came upon this picture of Karl Barth shooting an American civil war rifle. That is all I know about the picture. Now, instead of asking you, dear readers, for information on the context of the photo, wouldn’t it be more fun to think of clever captions for it instead? Aaaand go!
