      shortest thread ever?
      Fate whispers to the warrior, "There is a storm coming"

      And the warrior whispers back "I am the storm".

          38, but it was not the same round as used in the S&W 38.

            dont forget the PPK

            variations of it predated the BAP
            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.

                    I asked a similar question here almost 4 years ago. http://forum.irishmilitaryonline.com...light=revolver

                    As I understand it, the first issue sidearm was the Webley MkVI in .455, followed by surplus 38/200 revolvers (not sure if they were S&W, Webley or Enfield or a mix thereof though).

                    The question never got answered when I first asked it, would be great if IMO has gained someone who knows in the meantime.


                    S&W 38/200


                    Webley MkVI .455


                    Enfield 38/200



                    Webley 38/200

                          Warthog, you'll really impress me if you tell the audience the name of the senior AC officer who managed to shoot himself in the leg, entirely by accident, with one of those little guns.

                              There's another story about one of them "going missing" from the possession of a bigwig.
