    I, like several thousand other teenagers in the uk are trained to fire several kinds of rifle.

    1st the air rifle, then .22, the L98 (a special semi auto varient of the sa80) which fires 5.56 rounds and the L91 which fires 7.62 rounds. I am also supplied information on battle field tactics. and all I had to do was pick up a leaflet, go to an area surrounded by barbed wire (where I am actualy a security hazard as there is a radar dome on site with several klicks of underground bunker) with about 30 other kids, and sign a piece of paper.. then go there twice a week till Im 18 or 21 depending on how important I become. there is one other youth organisation which lets its members use even more powerful weapons.

    anyway, I was just wondering if other countries are this crazzy and are we all planning on attacking each other in the near future?

    It will not matter if you have AK's.

    Have you seen what the US did to Iraq? Wars these days will not be fought with small arms. It will be firepower from the air.

    U.S. planning on attacking the U.K.?

    Nah...as you know, the U.S. maintains a contingency attack plan for pretty much every country on earth, but I believe the invasion plan for Britain was scaled back to using only the local Boy Scouts of America troop in the greater Luchenbach, Texas area (but that might have been axed due to overkill...I can't remember).

    :neener:

    Welcome to THR. ;)

    why worry about carpet bombings anyway? the F15: flys with only one wing. I say: ha!

    the F16: mig killer: I say: double ha!

    the eurofighter typhoon: superior to any other current jetfighter anywhere. I say: no comment.. *cough*

    Your comments are interesting, mr. uk, in that you seem to find the idea of a young man's learning to shoot shocking. Here, at least where I'm from, it's considered an integral part of a well rounded education. We learned to shoot, and to do a lot of it, at a very early age.

    For example, here's my nephew with his first doe, taken at age 9, this past November:

    Huh, they must have a lower minimum age requirement than the US armed forces training programs. Unless they let you shoot in JROTC?

    Guess I should include the pic.[​IMG]

    If .223 is bruising your shoulder, you need to get in the gym.

    160 yards...they teach you to plant your muzzles in the ground? No wonder we keep hearing horror stories about the SA80. Good way to generate unwanted fireworks.
