TODAY AT BLAYE -MAS 36

The country that avoids war and the country that fights but has a hard time winning have been combined. The Swiss made some excellent firearms and the French made some unique and occasionally inspiring ones. We have added the Belgian and Dutch since they are neighbors.

TODAY AT BLAYE -MAS 36

Postby DuncaninFrance » Sun Apr 01, 2007 5:50 am

Once a month we shoot from 160 mtrs and our Secretary was shooting his MAS 36 so I had an old digital camera in the car and took these. Sorry about the quality but when we bought the camera, Fuji MX-1700 it was quite a bit of kit.

There was also a MAS 49(?) semi-auto, but I was asked NOT to photograph it.

I would say military

Knowing our Sec, M.Jean Buffan, it will be original military, as are the pouches.

The semi auto was throwing spent cases every which way, up, forward, back!

I seem to remember that my SLR could put 20 empty cases in a beret almost!
