So, rifles are made to fight other motherfuckers with guns. Taking and holding ground and precisely eliminating threats.

Handguns are for self defense, fighting back to your rifle and killing people up close where you can see them and smell them, see their eyes. Smell the axe body spray and monster energy drinks.

The Enfield is one of the best rifles of that era. The L85 is, not. They had to pay HK to fix it.

The British service handguns have been the Hi-power, SIG P226 and Glock 17.

Three of the best handguns ever made. I own all three and know them well. Biblically.

AR15s are amazing.

Britain is a police state.

Uncle, as a retard can you please explain to me the appeal behind a standard issued Bullpup? To me it sounds like a blatant attempt to be different.

How can a shorter over all device be considered an advantage when it makes it more cumbersome of an action to reload then reshoulder? Is the secret to constantly leave your shoulder dislocated so you can bypass the awkward motion? That being said I understand that 'Anglish knacker-heads aren't big on winning battles after the 19th century anyway and perhaps reloading is moot anyway.

I'm glad you asked nephew. Pour us both a cough syrup and bourbon into the skulls of these fudds I use as drinking glasses and let's chat.

You see, what you have to take into account is how fucking much the British and the French hate each other. They constantly have to fuck with and one up each other.

France chose the FAMAS to throw on the ground when they surrender and of course the British had to choose the L85 to have in order for the regular line troops to despise and the SAS to feel smug while they used ARs like everyone else does.

You see, the British armed forces are actually about two squads of SAS guys that go oper8 and then a bunch of regular troops who mostly are extras for episodes of Dr who.

They use G36ks and MP7s for their armed cop units and Glock 17s as good handguns. So they know they have to kill their own people regularly. But if they had a good service rifle they would then have to do well military wise. That's too much pressure.
