  2. You will learn the fine art of using a forum search function...
     
  3. Jeez. The youth of today are supposed to PC Savvy.

    Check out this page and take a choice of threads.
     
  4. Just go there and say the following answers:
    1. "i like big explosions"
    2. "macgyver is my hero"
    3. "Red blankets covering my grans body"
    4. "iam God".
     
  5. 9 parts of a shell

    history of the gun.

    Nuff said
     
  6. There are 9 ? :)
     
  7. 1. pointy bit
    2. flat bit
    3. waist bandy thing
    4. sholder
    5-6. two sides (inside and outside)
    7. paint
    8. the box it came in
    9. ???

    8/9 that's got to be a pass!
     
  8. You forgot the little bit that goes bang and the big bit that goes BANG because the little bit went bang.
    That makes 10 of the 9 parts.
     
  9. The little bit that goes bang doesnt have to be fitted to a shell for it to be a "shell".
     
  10. Bugger,

    Does that mean I only got 9 out of 9? Must try harder next time.
     
  11. No, it means C_D has finally remembered something from his AT course in 1983!!!

    ;-)
     
  12. right i had alook on the web did a bit of reseaqrch and the parts of a round are as follows i think:
    primer pocket, primer, rim, powder, casing, shoulder, neck, bullet, cannelure.. is that correct?
     
  13. No it's ******* not correct, Flying Felix has correctly highlighted the 8 out 9 parts of a shell and that's all there is to it:

    Someone else even managed to get the super duper 10/9 parts of a shell but I suspect they might be an instructor of shells so it doesn't count.

    The correct answer for number 9 is- the lid for the box.

    How very ******* dare you come in here waffling shit to experienced AT's about shoulders necks and pockets. Are you a ******* drill instructor?

    FFS, the question was "parts of a shell"..........................................

    The parts of a round are:

    ale
    crisps
    dry roasted
    lager (if there are girls)
    banter with barmaid
    lots of cash

    How difficult was that?
     
  15. Now you're just showing off.
