And we'd still win. No - one beats the Brits when it comes to alcohol fuelled violence.

For an example, check out this link to the Grudge Match website:

Okay it is versus the French, who are not exactly renowned for their martial expertise, but it gets the point across!

The site is closed to new submissions now, but there is some classic stuff (Star Trek's red shirted security ensigns vs Star Wars stormtroopers in contemporary down town LA - hilarious; and what can compare to a Dobermann vs a Dobermann's weight in Chihuahas!)

Do surf the site, it is geek heaven - and it really helps if you have loads of 80's / early 90's TV knowledge. See how many times Mister T gets a mention.

BTW, UK Pro Gun is a mate of mine - he really is leaving the country so that he can shoot - and I will be going over to visit him to do the same (he is hoping to have a range on the land he is buying). You should see where he currently lives; unconventional is not the word - but it is up to him if he wants to go into details.

Fair enough. It it means that much to him, I wish him all the best. ^1

P.S. Was at Bluewater today. I hate big shopping centres, but the missus seemed to feel the need to drag me around there all day.
Thinking about it, anyone got a gun I can borrow?! ;f ;I
ROFL!

Bluewater? Don't you mean Chavwater? Seal all of the exits and fill the place with nerve gas.

Except the Apple store. I cannot go near the place if I have my wallet with me (I am a professional Alpha Geek and an OS X and Linux specialist).

I reckon you are Essex plod. BTW I work with an ex Special Branch Superintendant who is now head of Security for my company (and his claim to fame is that his cousin is the "Desperate Housewives" actress Nicolette Sheridan).

Sad but true.

Nah - it doen't really matter. BTW I used to be a member of Stone Lodge range, and I still have some quite collectible items of clothing, including two "Hard Glock Cafe" T - shirts in white on blue (that's what the clubhouse burger bar was called) and an immaculate black satin bomber jacket professionally embroidered with the Glock logo on the front right hand side in gold thread, and with the words "Glock - Drastic Plastic" in silver and gold thread on the back. I gather these are quite rare, and I could probably get a few bob on Ebay for it. I was told at the time that these jackets were normally only issued to Glock certified armourers, though I reckon this was probably flannel.

I'll give it 5

Don't flog it on Ebay, unless your going to buy another Glock with it

Anyway is this thread going off topic ;m
Repeal the nasty UK firearms laws and let law abiding citizens have a fighting chance. Ah there's the rub, law abiding "citizens"

Don't forget that we are NOT citizens. To be a citizen you need to be a member of a republic. We are member subjects of a constitutional monarchy.

Still - I presume that you have read the earlier bits of the thread and seen what has been going on.

I recall the comments made by the firearms officer at Forest Hill Police station when I had to hand my Glock 17 in for destructon on the 3rd July 1997 (incidentally my birthday) - he said that now it would only be the bad guys that would be armed, and how prophetic that turned out to be!

Anyway, did you like the photos of the jacket?

Have you noticed that the UK Government proposes putting even stricter controls on air guns? In future they will only be supplied by registered dealers and there will be no option to purchase by post. They are basically making air weapons as hard to own as shot guns. I think they will probably be made illegal in a few years at this rate.

It just astounds me how we are bing led into a complete Nanny State and no-one seems to mind. I mean, there has been little debate or protest at the proposed ID card bill. I for one will not carry one out of general principle. The technology to make 100% reliable biometric identification is still 5 - 7 years away at the current rate of development; the government's own figures estimate that if implemented now, there would be an average of 6000 mis-identifications per DAY. And anyway, why should I have to prove who I am? The first action Hitler did when gaining power was to issue ID cards to all Germans; it made the later rounding up of Jews and other "undesirables" much easier. Let's face it, ID cards would not have stopped the 7/7 bombers would it? Rant over (for now!)

Tommy,

You cannot expect to increase individual self discipline by expecting less of it from individuals. Where do you expect the UK to be in 25 years, so long as you continue to restrict the freedom to abuse freedom, as solution to abuse?
When you begin to solve your rape problems, I will be sure not to be visiting!
