  1. I was using one every year for range firing practice from 1960 until 1968 when the RAF was changing to the FN-SLR. The Lee Enfield was retired by the army around 1957.
  2. In the RAF they taught me which end of the gun the bullet comes out of, how to empty the magazine when you have done range firing practice, how to clean and care for the weapon and to NEVER point ANY weapon at a person unless you are willing to kill them. For me the Lee Enfield .303 and the SLR 7.62 mm were really close action weapons. I couldn't even kill the paper russian target at 25 yards. The weapons instructor told me that if we went to war I should give all my ammunition to somebody else and if the Russians got really close I was to beat them to death with my rifle.
  3. I don't think trump and being reasonable somehow fit into a sentence together.
  4. Can you give the reasons WHY Trump was censored? Something to do with statements that fact checkers searched and were found to be fake perhaps. Maybe because Trump has told 2x,xxx lies over the last 4 years or so. Neither does it mean that Trump can post anything he wants, whether it is true, or more likely false.
  5. And that would make it OK do you think? Neither of my sons ever did anything like that nor did either of my wives. All of us were brought up correctly.
  6. Then the problem seems to be how enforce the gun laws to prevent criminals from buying guns.
  7. It used to weigh 9 pounds and 10 ounces without a full magazine as anybody who has slow marched the length of the parade ground with one on his shoulder. A few trips on the parade ground non stop and you will swear that it weighs about 50 pounds in weight.
  8. We used to have a metal circe with 4 propellor blades and some guys would sneak up and discharge a big capacitor across it.
  9. I can remember as a young lad in the RAF using the AVO model 7. All good old analogue stuff.
