Re: Random Meaningless Pictures-Lets See Them

On that subject, Duncan, my very distant relative, the late Nancy Wake had bit to say on the subject. When disguised as a man, she had to piddle with the rest and she said that it took a bit of practice to pee out the fly of a pair of men's pants successfully!! She also reckoned that the M1 Carbine ...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

On nipple wrenches, they can never be too substantial and the best system is where the nipple has a square "drive".
Common nipples can be squared and a suitable wrench made.

I found an interesting, though somewhat pricey site.

Rifles and shotguns,Duncan, and a lot of farmers have semi-autos.

Re: Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch........

Even in training we never counted, we pulled the pin threw, then chanted " 1,2 down".

My first live throw, I threw, then in the same fluid motion went to ground,

"Get UP! Get UP!" from the Tower.

"GET DOWN"

BOOOM!!

That nasty, forend destroying square on stock bolts.

The SMLE is one of the few service rifles, or any rifle, that has a built-in wrecker of forends, in the square on the end of the stock bolt.
