    Blue on Blue is NEVER friendly no matter how many politically correct terms there are for it.

    In British slang an anorak is a person who has a very strong interest in niche subjects.

    Oh I don't know. His last thought, as consciousness was replaced by permanent darkness, might have been "well at least it wasn't personal..."

    This is an unfriendly fire story;

    Back in the 1980's I worked at Brooklands, and an old panel beater (the legendary Nobby Clarke ex of both Mo Gomms and Alan Mann Racing) said he was returning to work on his push bike during the war, there were aircraft flying around , and there was smoke coming from near his works (Vickers) but the place was a live airfield, He said it just did not occur to him it was a raid (even though the Battle of Britain was on at the time!).

    He saw some people on the ground waving at him and heard a faint rattling noise...It transpired it was a "parting shot" burst from the rear of a ME110 and the people could see the bullets hitting the ground behind Nobby

    He said he was more angry than scared at the time, but once he got home his mum had to put some extra suger in his tea as he got a shake on.

    Different times, I think near 100 were killed that day on the ground as a suprise attack with no sirens initially.

    ATB, Ed

    Only way that you could bring an aeroplane down with any airgun would be with a Lanes bango bullet!

    I recall a little Japanese reconnaissance plane

    from a submarine,flying low over our school. I wished I had my 'Daisy rifle' then saw the pilot was waving.I waved back.

    C'mon, now, lads.

    You've had your bit of fun, now let's get serious.

    Assuming I actually have a .25 IMD ( birthday in July, hint) and a ME 109 was doing 200 mph, 60 yds away.


    How much should I lead it?

    ATB, Mick
    When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns .

    1,173.2 feet assuming pellet flight time of 4 seconds if taking a potshot......obviously a bit less with leading the Hun.......Have not factored in wind or elevation though

    Protek commissioned limited editions, a few years ago, some of you might recognise the male model, from the shop.
