Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  11. The tests are worryingly easy. I left before the SA80 came in and have never used one, but still got almost everything right.
  12. OP must be one of those scouse dealers who lifted the weapon from Salisbury. No serving member of HM Forces would be so stupid to post such a question on ARRSE!
  13. The above posters forgot squad 4 of the IA, to wit:

    While cocking lever is fully in rearward posn., lick boltface with sides of tongue, checking for an acrid taste, which indicates the presence of neutrinos in the reciever.
    Upon completion of this action, release bolt to forward position with tongue still protruding through ejection port.

    This is for the SLR, mind, but I imagine the IA is the same.
    Good luck on your test.
  14. to 'whiskey60', 'verticalgyro', 'flagrantviolator' Why the aggro tawards the STAB? jelous that i will have (both) my jobs in a few months and u will be lining up outside the dole office with the teen mums and the crack heads?? everyone else cheers for the answer :)
  15. It's the way the site works, part of the habitual discourse. Like insisting that all ACF instructors are peados. Don't bite and accept the answers.
