    Also to quote
    "Again it depends on the units relationship with its PDF sister unit and the RDF units Cadre.
    In one case a PDF Quarter was blocked from issuing out spent SRAAWs to an RDF unit by that Units Cadre staff on the basis that if one sub unit got them everyone would want them...in other words someone might have to work for a living"

    How about we do a poll on cadre staff?

    ...which is why there is a diagram of the backblast danger area printed on it. I am not disagreeing with the fact that you should be properly trained on the weapon before you use it (like any other firearm or explosive), but it appears to me that the DF have overkilled a simple bit of kit. Have you seen the size of the manual?

    I heard there was a waiting list of about 4 years for doing toets on it. Because I knew a guy he put his name down for it when he got his 2 stars and he had been a corporal a year by the time he actually got to fire it.

    True, but I don't see why the DF makes such a song and dance about a wavin pipe that you throw away when you're finished with it.

    it would be good to have a number of people passing toets on it every year anyway - nothing about points of aim, ranges, effect of rounds etc on the side, is there? an' it's good for guys t ohave to carry it along with everything else, give em the 'nam feeling they so crave

    SRAAW training's a waste of time anyway, the instructions are printed on the side :D

    Ok didn't know that one.

    It would help if we (the Reserves) got regular SRAAW training.

    Does the DF use the 9mm tracer AT4 trainer as well? Cant remember the nomenclature but thats an apt discription at least.
