Two points I have been pondering First : There have been many, many, many posts and threads about 7.62 against 5.56 with a new one this week. Just wondering if this is a modem phenomenon or did the old and bold way back when discus the merits for example of the sharp point heavyweight MK 1 spear being much better than that newer âallegedly â faster bow and arrow in taking down a woolly Mammoth. In reality does anybody know of old and bold who compared the new lightweight Enfield with the far better âman stopperâ Lee-Metford Rifles or the better Zulu stopper the Martini-Metford & Martini-Enfield or by 1914 were the old and bold in pastures green. Or what about that lightweight Bren , give me a Lewis anyday Anybody know ? Second : Somebody mentioned the Tommy Gun as a weapon to reintroduce Similar subject ie old weapons or using the enemnys weapons , I cannot recall seeing many photos of Tommies in WW2 using other AXIS weapons. Now I recon if Tommy was up the sharp end and got his hands on a MP 40 (9x19) mm as well as his issued Sten (9x19mm) then Tommy would have used the MP40 . Ammo same and could shoot out to 100 to 150 meters . Is the lack of photographic history of this for the Tommy (against loads of pics of Germans using Russian,Uk,US kit liberated on the battlefied and Russians and US troops doing the same) due to due to the Axis kit being rubbish or fact that most of the photos were taken byMilitary photographers from the Army Film and Photo unit and being unpublished due to the negatinve propaganda such pics showed? Anybody know if this was the reason why?
