Discussion in 'Weapons, Equipment & Rations' started by Casselton, Oct 17, 2011.

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. They age old question... Wherever I've gone there has been an old boy explaining how the SA80 is a BB Gun and is part of the down fall of the British Army. Also I've heard how we should have kept 7.62. But those who have used both weapons on opps, what do you think?
  2. In my considered view, you are a bit of a pratt.
  3. Are there not enough threads covering this already?

  8. The SLR is a superior way to top yourself, no doubt about it. Streets ahead.
  9. You'd need long arms though!
  10. Just use a cleaning rod with the brush bent over; the cleaning kits were better too.
  11. Use your toes.
  12. Speaking of someone who has used both, it is my considered technical, nay - expert opinion, that if you shoot someone in the head with either, the chances are they will end up dead. Or with a severe headache.
