Is SAS survival secrets correct about level of training?

Right at the beginning of this clip

At the risk of offending, I will politely say that the pistolcraft in that video leaves something to be desired.

This is more like it:

From a few years ago, these photo's would seem to confound the original supposition

In SAS survival secrets 'firearms' training it was said that 'in the regular units soldiers often do not fire more than a few rounds there entire career, however in the SAS they practice shooting daily'

Is this true?

I live <1 mile from an Infantry barracks and the range is used 4-5 days per week. It's great, means our dogs are comfortable with bangs

Thus, answer to Q2 is No
 
Hmm... well as a reservist I would fire anywhere between 25 round (minimum) and well over 5000 per year. It depends what job I am in, and if I am doing shooting team that year (depends on job!)

25 rounds is the minimum to be classed as efficient at very low readiness (normally training staff). Normally it is around 100 rounds (medium readiness), either can be higher for shooting team or if warned off for ops and so on.

Only when it doesn't conflict with the creative writing course.

The "find a publisher" module has been replaced with "brand placement using Social Media"

As you are allegedly joining the Int Corps, I would rush out and buy one of these.......

..... then practice like a demon on the Load and Unload, leave the stripping and assembling until you get to basic training.

You will really rock with the Instructors if you can turn up pushing out 60ppm ( pencils per minute ) in the standing, kneeling and prone unsupported positions.

I purchased the popcorn some time ago, but am yet to be suitably entertained. Come on, chaps. He's joining the Int Corps soon, desperate to start shooting things, etc. This is potential gold.

I get the feeling this thread will not be going anywhere ... it has the stench of death about it, the sense of a looming double tap and then one to the head to make sure. (I think I've got that right.)

The answer is █ ███████ █ ███ ██ █ ██████ ██ ██████ ██ ████ █ ███. Top secret, obviously, but the site censors are probably still all asleep.

Would you care to (badly) quote some Shakespeare?
 
Is this also an area moderated by The_Duke? Bollocks.

This is now in the hole and the OP is on RoPs. Looks like the rest of escaped unharmed

To shoot or not to shoot,
That is the question.
Whether it is nobler to
Face the wrath of the range staff
For not knowing where the safety catch is because it has been 2 years since you last handled a gat
 
Na. Im joining intelligence corps soon. I just hope the firearm training is really good.
Why? Do you think you're going to be like James Bond? :)
 
As long as it doesn't go on....

Makes bad contraception.

You're supposed to put the condoms over your feet before you put on your socks, keeps your feet drier when you're likely to be wet terrain

Pretty handy for sports enthusiasts too for the same reason

Men In Black walt!

 
Uh huh.

I'm getting a feeling it's Shockwave / Greenfly. Again.

It seems to be about the correct level of penistry - interested in the SAS, and in a PM to me he was talking about SIS as well.

He's very wierd.

They go between boots and feet. Usually one per foot.

My cocker spaniel swallows socks whole and then either throws them up or passes them out through his bottom.

Picking up a dog rocket wrapped in semi-digested hosiery adds a whole new dimension to the dog-owning experience, however, on the plus side, he is a squared-away hound who can reasonably claim to have his shit in a sock.
