  3. I hope its the webcameron one that you're signing.

    I joined the army in 1970, I was all to eager to get on the ranges and have a blast with the SLR, SMG and LMG. Brought up with airguns and shotguns I wanted to fire the real thing. Look at todays youth, scared to pick up a firearm, ooo mummy always told me it was bad to play with guns. Something is being taken from our potential soldiers today, spirit.

    Young'uns today only get experience of firearms during mischief, they should be encouraged to get into a club and learn responsible shooting. Perhaps more would have the cojones to sign up and use that skill for real.
     
  4. Really? I thought the problem was that the youth of today were overly familiar with firearms, knives, etc?

    Maybe it's a fiendish EU plot to confuse us?

    It the wrong kind of familiarity they seem to have. Education and training in responsible use is what they need. Either through the gun clubs or military service where there can gain knowledge and respect. There is a place for firearms and that is not on the street. The same can be said of knives and other matrial arts implements.
     
  9. Signed, and I live in Europe, Aaaaargh! Bloody Foreigners.
