Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Rules are meant to be broken ....... discuss
     
  2. Could the MOD allow them to practice on military land?
     
  3. This would be the Coe who resigned as Captain of the House of Commons Pistol Team the day after Dunblain would it?

    The Home Secretary has the power under the 1997 legislation to make exemptions to the use of pistols if he wishes. It was done for the Commonwealth Games when the shooting was held at Bisley.

    The fact remains that the UK pistol team cannot train properly in the country that they represent and that is hosting the Olympic Games.

    It's a shame that our Government trusts overseas sportmen and women to shoot pistols but not its own citizens.
     
  4. It may even be the same Coe that resigned as chairman of the National Pistol Association after Dunblane, yep the mans not just a tosser, he's now a titled tosser.
