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. Attached Files:

  2. That is a great resource you have there. The rifle pam has settled a couple of questions about the use of sights that have been at the back of my mind for a long time. So much for the six o'clock hold, gravelbellies!
  3. I had a look at one of the Pams for practice shoots and it named the target as a Figure 4a. This got me thinking - I've only ever used Figure 11s and 12s, does anyone know what the previous iterations looked like? I tried googling Figure 4a target without success.
  4. Compare & contrast the material in the pistol pams through time. It really was pretty thin by the end. Not that it was that impressive in the beginning, mind...
  5. If you take a look at Volume V of the Small Arms Training manuals, all of the targets are shown in there. If it isn't on that page, it's at www.vickersmachinegun.org.uk/manual.htm

    Glad you like the site.
