The Bloke has recently unearthed some important Historical Documents relating to the SA80 adoption. In 1986, the cast of the BBC's Grange Hill soap opera for kids produced a hit single as part of a campaign to un-adopt the SA80 and adopt the M16 or FN FNC in its place.
The campaign failed for unfortunate reasons.
This short video explains all.
(Yeah, the animation's a bit bonk. But the preview in the editor is aligned perfectly, then the final rendered version is off. So I'm flying kinda blind, frame by frame...)
Firearms history, blokesplaining firearms mechanics, mythbusting, shooting sports and kitschy sketches all in one place. An often dry and sarcastic look at whatever takes the Bloke's and the Chap's fancy in the world of guns and shooting.
