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. *I've smelled gunsmoke certainly, but cannot recall unignited powder having an odor.

    It's that time of year, again:

    Kentucky: Roar of the Tommy Guns, the smell of gunpowder - Yahoo! News

    The range is appropriately located in "Bullitt County" Kentucky. If my memory serves me, the range was a US Navy testing facility during WWII. It would be interesting to own the mining rights to that property.
  2. Do they ever publish the casualty figures?
  3. "Knob Creek"? Aptly named...
  4. While I have never heard of casualties there, imagine some nutter goes on the waiting list for the MG shoot and, while there, swivels a mini-gun around toward the spectators. Fuck!

    It's in the South. What do you expect?

    Beaver Lick KY [I do like the sound of that one!]
    Sugar Tit KY
    Slick Lizzard AL
    Gobbler's Crossing AL
    New Erection, VA.
    Wankers Corner OR

    I could go on, but you get the idea.
  5. Jealous bitch, must really chafe that we can own Brens or Vickers if we want while you lot make do with Handbags

  7. I would LOVE to own a functional, transferrable Bren, but they cost an absolute mint!

    If you have a line on one, please PM.
