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 occaisonally inspiring ones.

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:

They ARE sweet to shoot, aren't they?
