My firing experience is on .22 and .303 rifles, standard NCC issue. Yes, airguns too. But you said air-rifle, did it really have rifling?

I had one Bren and 25 Lee Enfields under my charge. I used dismantle and then assemble the Bren pretty fast. My biggest regret is that I never got to fire it because of budgetary concerns. You are right about accuracy, it is more like a broad stroke gun. It is always used lying down or mounted on some platform. Shooting it handheld will need monstrous strength, although I do have a photograph of me posing with it as Rambo.

I also used to handle the Sten gun often, again no firing experience.

well m16 is a derivative of m4 series i think, so does'nt make much diffrence except the size and extra burst mode(may be) of firing
You really luck to fire an actual gun, so in which country is your friend from. Well we are happy with counter strike
Hey people i have a collection of 12guage shell, .22 and .38(i think)... are they gonna become unstable with time, is it safe , wats the shelf life to normal ammo

i Hate snipers :(, snipers are real pain in the as* in counter strike. i use to play at 150 latency and at that latency i cant snipe, i can just be the vicitm of snipers

something common to share samurai sir. i have handled the LMG & .303 as well from my NCC days too & an automatic & a revolver too (not from NCC, obviously). ALC, Army attachment, you name it, i have been there. won medals in shooting with .303.

I was an average shot, it was around the same time I developed short-sightedness.

Actually it's the other way around. The M4 carbine is a derivative of the M-16 rifle. the M-16 is standard issue for the US armed force. Both use the same 5.56*45 mm NATO round, but the M4 is compact , designed mainly for use by the special forces and has the ability to accomodate a lot of cool mods. The M-16 is probably the most famous rifle in the world, that is after the ubiquitous AK-47 (hats off Mr kalashnikov) and gained prominence due to fact that it was introduced during the Vietnam War to replace the M-14 (which used the 7.62mm NATO round). The M-4 is available to civilians in the US as the AR-15.....

As far as using weapons goes, have fired most of the standard issue stuff in the Indian Army (dad was a proud fauji)...but what takes the cake is the MP-5 (The NSG uses that)....its more exciting to use in the real world than video games...that much i can vouch for.......

The MP-5! Wow! the MP-5SD (the variant with the integrated suppressor) is my fave SMG (yes, I somehow have this thing for a suppressor/silencer). They've shown the newer gen H&K UMP (with a suppressor) in Casino Royale. They close the movie with Daniel Craig sniping ..... (I won't spoil the fun) with one of those.

The NSG use the H&K PSG-1 too, don't they? I saw a dude with a PSG-1 in some photo long back in THE WEEK. I didn't know the Indian Army could afford uber-expensive stuff like the PSG-1. Musta bought it from H&K with the MP5s on bulk.
