Interesting Discussion of Mil Bolt Actions / Singing "Waltzing Matilda" w/Bayonet

From our friendly Brit in Switzerland and another bloke from the Southern Hemisphere,


I don't know how well this will work.

Who is in awe.

This thing isn't working for me anymore.

Who is annoyed. It should work, but it doesn't.

Doesn't work for me either, but I've discovered that if you hit the Quote button on the original post, the URL appears in the quoted material and you can copy and paste it if you want.

You're welcome.

To All,

I never thought that the .303Brit SMLE was any rifle that I'd ever want to shoot/hunt with/own until I shot my Uncle's "sporterized SMLE #1", that was sold out of the catalog by Montgomery Wards.
asked him once how many deer that he had taken with the rifle since the early 1950s' & he said, "I lost count years ago."

That 69.95 rifle was a "tack driver". - I now wish that I had bought it from his estate in 2013.

yours, sw

I'm looking at this in InternetExplorer and if I authorized non-secure sources, then I get the link to the Youtube video, but with the note: "Flash embedded videos are no longer supported."

WTH?



Geoff
Who will insert the link again and see what happens.

I tell Chrome to "Load unsafe scripts" and then the link appears.

Geoff
Who discovers more and more quirks.

l think the guys think they know more than they really know. But they do know what they're talking about for the most part, and one would be well advised to listen carefully and see what you can learn.

The forend pressure thing, it seems they don't "really" understand it, but they know just enough to know forend pressure is needed for many rifles. I guess that's more important than the deep seated Alchemist reasons behind it.

Flash is notoriously insecure and with HTML-5 no longer necessary.
From January 27, 2015
https://venturebeat.com/2015/01/27/y...eo-by-default/
YouTube today announced it has finally stopped using Adobe Flash by default. The site now uses its HTML5 video player by default in Google’s Chrome, Microsoft’s IE11, Apple’s Safari 8, and in beta versions of Mozilla’s Firefox browser.
