There in lies the problem. People who play video computer games [like me] but not necessarily you, expect weapons to behave like they do in the
Nowhere in any game I have ever played, does the weapon suffer a breach explosion [as happened to a lady friend of mine when she was at Bulford Ranges
firing a Sterling SMG];
Nowhere in any game I have ever played does a weapon malfunction because of dirty or damaged ammunition or a damaged magazine, as happened to me
during an LMG competition shoot.
Stoppages occur. That's why we Brits have an IAD or Immediate Action Drill
! This is drummed into a serviceman or woman during weapon training
and the actual weapon handling test is unforgiving.
Our servicemen and women are taught that whenever or wherever possible, they must battle clean their weapon, usually half a section at a time.
This should take no longer than than 5 minutes but it should be noted that unlike some weapon systems, the L85A2 can still be fired with the recoil
rod & spring assy left out of the weapon.
The constant harping that happens on ATS when members continually criticise this or that weapon system, vehicle or aircraft, from the safety of an
armchair, their experience based on their ability to play COD 10 and not eating dirt while some scumbag tries to take your head off, is seriously
beginning to annoy me.
