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. You mean a bullet fragmenting..........that's normal. Nothing special there.
     
  2. In a battle I think I would still go for the .50 my hand eye coordination is no longer good enough to bat off .50 rounds with a blade!!

  3. Is this the video where the japs insist on rubbing the sword in some mystical manner? An axe head would perform the same feat.
     
  4. I reckon a kukri would fare better.
     
  5. yep, I saw a demonstration of a guy shooting the edge of an axe with two balloons behind on either side and he managed to hit the edge and burst both balloons
