Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. at the risk of boring you all and coming across as a gobby newcomer,please bear with me on this as you could all benefit in the long run. when i was issued a weapon it was the SLR complete with mahogany furnishing and optional extras,now this friggin thing weighed about 11lbs loaded,this got me thinking along the lines of,hold on i,m hardly going to use this to actually kill anyone(after all im ordinary forces)this thing an me is only going to be in each others company for drill, guard duties, and the occasional shot on the ranges,so i got to thinking about having a alternative weapon, after much thought i came up with the DIANA 177clb air rifle,stay with me on this one lads, thinking of the plusses and minuses of both weapons,SLRplus points no.1 is that it will stop a charging rhino,errm cant think of another, now the DIANA, no1 negligent discharge,whos going to know?, no2 loss of ammo, easy just nip to sport shop and buy another tinful,no3 onparade most members of the public would,nt notice anyway,right heres where you benefit,all non combatant rifles could be sold to some dago country and the proceeds could be ploughed into the naafi bars,job done,
    also there is a recreational bonus,when you come into barracks at night hammered,you can fire dried raisins at each other,trust me it works, can anyone think of any fors or against for this
