    L98A1, you were probably one of the people who were told about the A2 long before any paperwork was even written for it...

    @Kieran, you don't need to tell me guns aren't toys, literally the first thing we learnt "Never point a weapon not even in jest", it tends to stick when you've seen someone's hair get burnt with the hot gases out the end of an LSW (someone fired half a magazine of blank rounds through the BFA into the guy's head by accident).
    How many of you lot have actually been cadets at some point or another/ are joining one of the 3 armed services (the marines don't count, they're navy. I don't care what CVQO/ Edexcel say).

    If i was American id move to another country maybe like Canada, yes a very below the belt joke.
    I dunno if id own a gun for protecting the house i mean i do fine without one here. No one needs an assault rifle thats overkill unless a mob comes over or your taking on an army lol. Seriously if you NEED a gun that is more a problem of society come on there cant be that many burglaries that justify having an arms cache most Americans treat it like a hobby.
    Hows a gun gonna help you if your burgled while away from the house?

    Im more scared about knife crime tbh.

    Ive never seen anyone get shot in the head doesn't sound to nice.

    Air rifles should be banned, a guy i know got shot with one at rouken glen golf course hit him right in the leg pierced the skin had to remove it in hospital and fucked his leg for a few weeks. Ive heard people died from burst organs due to air rifles.

    Oh yeah im a spoil sprt but i dont feel its fun or cool.

    Manslaughter thinking about it shouldnt apply to shooting and killing people for protection, they pre determined that they would shoot a person for burglary ect so if its PRE DETERMINED it means they meant it which is murder. Not like Manslaughter which an accident and such.


    Here may as well ask her i have a sata 1 dvd drive but the hard drives are sata 2, i want to enable AHCI but i think that coz the dvd drive is sata one its not allowing it?

    worst thing about knife crime is the fact the blades are so easy to find, if your in a place with no people around you can fucking bleed to death

    people i see in glasgow have fucking massive chib scars, like its normal stuff

    least its not as bad as gunchester (manchester) they have real guns and converted replica which can be fucking dangerous as it wasnt meant to be fired


    im not botherd if anyone was like in cadets its just a place to meet mates i understand that
    marines are hardcore most people cant take the training or dont meet criteria SAS is even harder to get into

    Marines are part of the navy therefore they are not their own armed service, Edexcel/ CVQO treats it as a seperate service when you're doing the BTEC First Diploma in Public Services.
    Kieran, you forgot the SBS (They only exist when they're needed and are more shit hot than the SAS thanks to being the best in the marines).
    Replicas are bloody stupid, same goes for knives.

    1 thing for sure is you can't get a decent £500 laptop anymore in stores and you have to do crazy internet searching

    Netbooks? Not in terms of performance perhaps but they're brilliant bits of kit for the price.

    dont forget that england LOVES cricket and PIMMS, btw why is it americans assume we talk and act like its the victorian era or 1700s the revolution happened get over it

    its alright the scots are sitting in a beer garden eating pub food maybe a bbq and drinking tennants lager(horrible but its popular) and whisky!
    then off to watch scotland get gubbed at football against some small time nations
    back to the pub inside for another boozing adn some pool or the fruit machines

    older guys like to put on a punt at the bookies

    in scotland the most popular thing is pub or a house party or a booze in the house some crap tv and football/golf

    if your hardcore clubbing up town is usually popular, hardcore lol there are places that play a lot of indy shite too

    I hate the stereotyping thing... It's bad when im watching Family Guy or something and an English fella comes on, surprise surprise - Big teeth and a damn posh accent!

    We can all stereotype, tbh American are the easiest....
