Re: The new 5-25x56 PM II by Schmidt & Bender

Hell i never saw a boggy that was a meter high unless he had at least 6 inches of sheep dung under his wellies..
a human torsoe tends to be about 1m from groin area to top of head.
And the 5-25x56PMII is a 1st focal plain scope.

3sixbits, Pete,

Reminds me of the old squaddie joke:

'How do you wink at an Irishman?'

Can you remember it?!

The answer's not too PC -especially in these post-ceasefire days [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

[/ QUOTE ] That is good news about the first focal plane on the 5-25X56PMII. The lady at S&B in NH. said it was a second focal plane scope. Pete: whatever could Brown Dog mean by that? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

700-must stress, this joke was about IRA/INLA etc types marring your fine country north of the border:

Answer: Mime holding a rifle at the shoulder. Now close your non-aiming eye.

Might read easier if it was updated to 'How do you wink at a fedayeen?' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thats right 700.. my Boggy thing was meant at the ters and not at the good irish folk,, ive had a bunch to do with irish boys over theyears and i know som,e fine fellows( i have a couple of RUC bloke who come over regular to shoot boar)
Wink at an Irish man was close both eyes and pull trigger if i remember right..I hope all that carry on is in the past,, cos we west Europeans are under a far greater threat than fron Protestant V Catholic each other.. damn i love it if i can laughj at my self,, you would be surprised how many Yorkshire man sheep shagging jokes i know..
Pete

Pete, Dog

My national pride promts me to be realy offended.

Oops! I think reality is taking over. That was actually funny.

I was studying in Queens in 92/93. The first 3 news articles on the BBC news every night concerned Belfast. The IRA were trying to get 1000lb bombs into Belfast. Hence the Army and RUC (police) had check points every 500 yards. Those guys were saints. Lucky for me, London was a hotter target than Belfast that year. You guys seem to be army or ex-army so you probably understand the complexities better than I do. Few people realise that the British army was initially mobilised in to NI to protect the Catholic / Nationalist community.

Thankfully things have calmed down over the last 10 years. Currently I think the Irish and UK governments have the IRA on the run. The loyalists seem to be behaving themselves quite well. The are not even robbing banks to fund the purchase of Bulgarian banks.


Pete, is there still a British zone in FRG
