    Army display was the shiznit. Will never forget the look in the PDF privates eyes as I shocked him with my knowledge and expert handling of the steyr and the sound of laughter as I opened up the 203 and a dummy grenade dropped out onto the ground.
    The display was by 2 Bn- and the look in the Pte's eyes was more than likely pity and a modicum of restraint in that he probably wanted to shove the Steyr so far up you that you could brush your teeth and clean the muzzzle at the same time
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    You should be Demoted to G1... actually i wont insult G1's with that but how the f*ck were you allowed to handle a steyr and 203 so badly?
    "He is an enemy officer taken in battle and entitled to fair treatment."
    "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

    Could happen to anyone. How was I meant to know there would be a dummy round in it?

    I bet that private was thinking 'phew, good think I didn't put that live round in there'. Some of you people spend way to much time behind computers.

    I know sweet **** all about the 203 but I'd imagine that 'opening it up' is probably part of your safety precautions. Hence the round coming out.

    I was there and overall it was a good show.

    However, I would have liked to see one of the PC-9's do a fast fly-past .....to show the crowds what they are capable of !

    It was a display designed for the general public who've never heard of safetys and probably have to ask if it's a real gun before picking it up. Relax enjoy your day and stop trying to impress the big army man by all your infinite knowledge.
