For the record

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.

For the record

Postby DuncaninFrance » Sat Apr 07, 2007 1:40 pm

A couple of shots taken last Saturday (31/3/07) of the Schmidt-Rubin K31 I used in the postal competition.(That's NOT me shooting, it's Jean-Francois. I have much more hair!!!)

I must say that it was an absolute joy to shoot but there was one minor problem.

I wear varifocal glasses and a couple of times I found myself sighting with the right hand side of the foresight protector instead of the foresight itself. I spotted it before I fired though - honest :lol:
