  4. Are you in P5 ducky...?
  5. is that list the same as you get at phase 1?
  6. you only need that shit for the bullshit locker inspections and then never get to wear it, i binned all that shit years ago.
  7. Why would you need to be issued body armour for?
  8. March and shoot
    Night Shoots
    Moving Targets
  9. You'll be issued everything you need. What you want is a different matter.
  10. I want a cat. Is that issued? :p

    Sounds good really, that's what i could have imagined. Obviously things like bungees, tent pegs etc. you'll need to buy yourself? :O
  11. :roll: you know you have p*ssed you stripey off if he asks you to don body armour , then uses you as a moving target. You might get lucky and find its me behind the rifle as I cant hit a barn door with a bazooka. :wink:
