Sas Walt?

Forty? That's four magazines!

No it’s two magazines.

The OP said he fired thirty rounds. I was curious why bother with firing and using only half the capacity of a magazine when you might as well fill the magazine to full capacity and fire forty rounds.
 
While I'm here, is there an Arrseish to English thesaurus, translation button or anagram decoder machine available? I spend too much bloody time trying to figure out what you lot are talking about.

Don't worry too much, that is situation normal around here.

As the night draws in and particularly on Fridays, copious amounts of drain cleaner and toilet duck are consumed, making comms difficult.

If I'm honest, most don't know what they were on about either, the following morning.

ETA PS Comms is communications :)

Oh That‘s ok then. It just seemed a shame not to use the whole magazine capacity!

We used the AR mags, obviously. Looks more warrie in the photos. No requirement to go prone, might mess up the uniform.

Edit: On cloudy or wet mornings we did use a few high angle rounds to burn away the clouds with the muzzle flash.

I did that in South Armagh and it does look very ally indeed.

I stopped doing it because the LMG guy wanted his magazines back.

The selfish b*st**d!

If being called a ‘twonk’ offends you, you may be in for a bit of a shock.

Not at all, I've been called a lot worse. I was comparing helpfulness to a try hard knob.

I've been reading some very entertaining threads and am fully aware of the humour and indifference of the inhabitants of this madhouse. It will just make it easier and more enjoyable when i can understand more than every third word.

Got a guy who works at our security firm recons he was a sniper with 22nd I don’t know nearly enough to pick apart his story So I’m gonna post what he’s put on here and looking advice on how I can actually get the correct information but he pissing everyone off saying he can’t find a job due to covid 19 etc at the minute works as a doorman full time low level says the reason he won’t do anything else is has 3 kids and wants to stay out of conflict This is what he’s said as his proof of training. I have no idea if it’s correct or not.

“Back when I joined the army I set the record for the british army barb test, I was told I could take my pic of entry level jobs, I scored 63 points in 12m50s, I joined the RLC as a driver, because of my results I was put into britains first fast track platoon for new recruits, it's essentially the same as if you were rejoining, at the time was 9 weeks instead of 13 for basic trading phase one then onto normal phase 2, my platoon trained with reme at pirbright, in guildford in Surrey ( 6am and 6pm the Concorde would fly over, quite amazing to see and really loud), during my first live firing training i was asked to reload my mag, and go again, I had a 1 inch grouping over 30 rounds @ 500m, that's putting 30 bullets in a coke bottle lid 500m away, I got told I was no longer becoming a driver and I was to be a sniper, people have lives before being doorstaff guys, I'm not here to be the butt of boredom jokes.“

That is his entire proof he won’t give out any more information to the guys says for security reasons and thinks he’s shit hot at everything regarding security any advice appreciated.
A coke bottle lid ( crown cap) that really is some shooting, especially with an issue rifle and run-of-the- mill ammo 30 rounds, and no dispersion and no sandbag rest at 500m! Would liked to have seen the Range Officer's face at that feat!

Perhaps he deployed with all the rounds they could issue? It's happened before, if Howard McGee's account in 'Soldiers In A Rather Aimless War' is anything to go by.

I was sent as the "armed" escort for a weapons transfer once. I got the Browning strapped on but it was too much trouble for the occifer to issue me the ammo.
