Shurley that was the Swedes, with the 'Charlie Gutsache' 84.
That Rifle, the mighty SLR has always been known as "The Right Arm of the Free World" since it popped up on the internet a few years ago.Apologies in advance for reopening the floodgates of misty eyed memories of “that rifle”.
I’ve repeatedly heard the SLR/FAL referred to on American media channels as “The Right Arm of the Free World”.
I’ve always assumed this was one of those “universal” namings out of the US, as it doesn’t really seem to fit the attitude of British (or Commonwealth in my case) militaries. In my experience most things that refer to Freedom have their origins in the US, but I stand to be corrected.
Is it a “title” bestowed by a Soldier of Fortune or similar writer, or was it genuinely known by that moniker by anyone who used it?
There was a saying going around the blue clad dealers of death that the SMG is the most accident prone, dangerous weapon known to man . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . and they issue all of the women with one.Haha, yeah, 'F*****g SMG' was quite popular.
