A question

#1
Ok, so I got a question here - and don't mock me for this :)

Is it just Pl. Commanders that are issued SA80s? Are Company Commanders and Company 2 I/Cs issued with rifles, and if so, when do officers generally stop lugging them around?

I'd rather have an SA80 than a pistol.....any day of the week!

They're not that heavy! I'd recommend going to the gym if you're struggling with one.

Or do you like "Dirty Harry" movies?

If they are smart, they don't.

Within Bn life you will normally find they will all have rifles.

All ranks below Lt Col are mandated to carry a rifle in current theatres...

Pistols may be drawn for specific duties.

why dont you want to carry a rifle?

Its not the first world war you know, where the new 2lt blows the whistle and draws his pistol to shoot any straggelers.

I know a lot of people slated the SA80 and for valid reasons, but i loved my rifle, and was always gutted when i had to get a new one.

Certainly in the infantry everyone used to carry a rifle. SMG for BG HQ types. But even in Air Portable ops the Coy HQ is vehicle mounted. Not much *lugging* of anything going on there. Quite right too.

Swords...?! What happened to them ... always enjoyed a bit of pig-sticking!!

But seriously a nice big gat is always good, can be used as butstroke people also means you can shoot peole further away - stops getting blood on your combat - real pain to get out of combats. Just remember to keep it within an arms length at all times or in the shoulder and you can't go wrong
