You would have thought that the MOD would know the difference between 'bullets' and 'cartridges'.
Actually, no, you wouldn't, would you?
Cant SO2 MoD_RSS use the search function?
Replacement for Browning, I'm sure there is a good reason, but why not Sig Sauer P226? there is a list of reasons why we
should just replace the old Browning with the in service UOR Sig weapon we have known over Telic and Herrick. But the reason for a completely new one?
he's got very small hands..
If a soldier or officer cant hold a weapon properly be it he or she, cant blame the weapon, blame who ever said it was Ok for them to join with action man hands
I don't know what you are reading, but I can see nothing wrong with the nomenclature in that report.
"Its magazines can carry more bullets"
Rounds or cartridges would have been correct, even ammunition, I would have thought.
But you're the expert, if the British army now refers to ammunition as 'bullets' then I defer to your superior knowledge.
Call me a dinosaur (yeah, I know) but I'd still choose a 1911A1 .45
It takes 2 or 3 rounds of 9mm to do the same damage as a .45 so the magazine capacity isn't really an advantage and the 1911 has proved it's effectiveness and reliability for over a century. Just like Hovis it's as good today as it's always been!!
Just my 2 bobs worth.
Only in Holywood.
"With a magazine of xx bullets, load!"
Probably takes 2 or 3 rounds of .303 to do the same damage as a .577/450 Martini Henry bullet, but nevertheless, we dropped it.....(might not be a good example, but it avoids "the" example).
Which example would that be?
Don't do it man!
I thought he meant the Webley .455. What did you think he meant?
Separate names with a comma.
