Also contains some detail on how the SMLE's bedding / stocking up works.
Also includes range footage at 300m.
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.
