Recently (well about 6 weeks ago) i was on a course at SEME Bordon. And a lecturer (very old and bold ex army) who will remain nameless was telling me and the rest of the class that trainees no longer learn how to fire a weapon in basic. Now im a mateloet so i have no idea if this is true or not. Im guessing he is talking out of his hat. He also said that a woman can not be made to fire a weapon. Again this seems very unlikely. Just wondered if there was any truth to this at all.
