A rediscovery

I had this one bookmarked on my other computer and somehow lost track of it when I upgraded to this Dell laptop. I just stumbled onto it again and if you're into guns, shooting, motorcycling, military history, travel and fishing, then Chuck Hawks website is interesting. And photography and astronomy (I'm not).

In fact, I've several of these and while the page is not a definitive treatise on the firearm, it was nice to read someone else's opinion of the old SMLE. Especially an Ozzie's take on it as they (and the Indians) kept the SMLE through WWII while the other Commonwealth countries upgraded to the Lee-Enfield No 4 rifle. But, it also reminded me that I need to slow down and make time to get out to the range and do some shooting.
