    One chapter dedicated to why you no longer need to stick your finger into the pistol.

    I wonder will it reduce the casualties of guardroom roofs and floors?


    How long before we begin to bemoan the demise of our beloved bap, and long for its return, as the new pistol is "only a toy, and doesn't feel like a real pistol"?


    Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

      Something tells me that not even a new manual will stop some culchie BOS demonstrating his skills to a mate in a Kilworth billet and putting one in the roof...

        Don't know about that, lots of the Jackeen BOS suffered from petrol vapours growing up, so I imagine they are probally more susceptible to a moment of madness resulting in a 9mm hole in the guardroom ceiling.

          lots of the Jackeen BOS ... moment of madness resulting in a 9mm hole in the guardroom ceiling.
          Dublin people using the BAP dont really have that problem and heres why


          1 Because our mothers and fathers were not related prior to marriage, then our bone development grew at the normal rate

          2 Our fingers as well as the rest of our bodies are in proportion

          3 With our normall lenght fingers, we can insert same into the BAP

          4 We dont get ND's

          5 and a by product of this is- we have happy wives

          dont worry about it Laoch, its not your fault and it will only take a couple of generations before you lads have normal bone lengths
          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.

            Ah I think Pistols come easier to city slickers any way as it seems to be be the only way some of exetnded families in the smoke seem to be able to generate a living..those who can't use a psitol accurately have graduated to sub machine guns.

            Those of our country breathern who have not found the joys of supermarkets tend to be more adept at hunting with rifles and tend to make up the marksman brigade in the army..rarely won competition outside of the pale......

            those of us who are semi house trained tend to fire at falling platesa as its an acceptable method of keeping jackeens in the pale....and those in the wing etc are proficent at drive by shootings and house clearances..to keep there lord ships in Dail Eireann from loosing the run of them selves.....

            so horses for courses...

                          Got my hands on the new pistol today. Comes with a kit such as a little boxed cleaning kit,spare polymer magazine and dpm holster(protac job).Holster design is similar to old plce one we had,just wider around the trigger guard.Pistol has lumi -dots on the sights for target engagement in low light conditions.Alltogether a nice looking weapon.Feels a little top heavy though.My bn got enough of em.if each bn gets the same allotment and the regiments follow suit that still leaves an awfull lot left over.Even after you equip the cav and all the other support units there will still be plenty to play with.I wonder will the finally scale drivers and others who need them for them or will they maintain the senior officers and ncos only bullshit.:confused:

                          "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

                              If you strip it down the pistol grip section weighs nothing and is plastic you your both right :D

                              Fully loaded the weight of the rounds counters the top heavyness. There's a fair pullup and back from the weightof the slide when it cycles.

                              Anyone notice if its marked P8 or USP?

                                Do your calculations factor in the RDF as they have also been issued with them?
