In an earlier vid on the Früwirth carbine, many people remarked the offset firing pin. Here's the reason for it... Hint: it's in the original 11.5x36R ammo.

Meet Han. He's a good egg and a very good shot, but sometimes talks himself out of it under competition pressure. Here's a video about the psychological aspects of shooting technique, and how psychology can affect your performance, illustrated with a falling plates J-ladder knockout competition.

Mike was lucky enough to be able to shoot the semiauto SA80 / L85A1, so he zeroed it at 100m and shot it at 300m

Monsieur Le Chap and Monsieur Le Bloke shoot a pair of French model 92 revolvers side by side: a proper St. Etienne Mle 92, and a Trocaola-made Mle 92 Espagnol, a Smith & Wesson M&P clone made in the Eibar valley. But which one is better?

Note: the calibre isn't 8mm Lebel!

Bloke brings you a no-expense-spared method to powder coat cast bullets.

Mike and Rob discuss how the lessons learned in the Boer War impacted the rifles and personal carrying equipment of the British soldier in the run up to 1914. How and why did it result ultimately in the SMLE Mk.III and 1908-pattern belt kit, from a starting point of the MLE/MLM and Slade-Wallace equipment?

The Bloke takes a deep look into the mechanical differences between a German 7.92x57mm Mauser 98 action (specifically a Kar98k) and a British .303" Enfield Pattern 14 (P14) rifle.

The Chap takes a look at a Früwirth M1872 Austrian Gendarmerie Carbine. Not a Fruhwirth, Frühwirth, Fruwirt, Frühwirt or any other wierd spelling, but Früwirth. This was a critical developmental step on the way to the Kropatschek M1886, as discussed by Othias here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgUIV-5o6qI&feature=youtu.be

Bloke goes up a tower on the first ridge of the Jura mountains to brave the wind and discuss on a rather superficial level a number of geographic and economic factors that affected Switzerland in worlds wars 1 and 2.

The bloke puts the kids to bed, and sits out on his front balcony for a nice tipple and a spot of catharsis - blancoing some webbing with Khaki Green 3 (KG3) blanco. But what on earth is the deal with this wierd paint stuff that the British Army put on webbing during WW1, WW2 and until the adoption of 1958 pattern? What's the deal with ordering 1908 and 1937 pattern dyed a rather sandy beige, to then paint it green? Eh? What's the ever-loving point of that?

Bloke gets to blather on about the .303 Rifle No.5, aka "Jungle Carbine", thanks to the kindness of a friend of the channel. What's the deal with this "wandering zero" thing that appears so frequently in the literature but seems to be rarely seen in real life?
