My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

But they use the L85A2. Right?

 

That's not my point.

The FNC has been proven reliable and suitable for the job.

Surely people understand that, if there's no need to replace a Army rifle, they won't replace it?

 

The A1 was replace by the A2 by necessity.

That need is not felt for the FNC.

I've got no problem with the Belgian forces using whatever rifle they find effective.

 

Why so defensive?

Because you mention scaa I assume you are in America?

 

The engine is different (F22 vs F20) and the driver's seat is on the wrong side meaning the battery isn't on the induction side but the exhaust meaning that you can't easily fit ITBs.

Other than that I don't really know anything about your cars.

 

The driveline vibration is real though, the spacers are super easy to fit.

If you do get one I have a full set of polybushes in red for the car...

Indeed, its easier for me to "rent" a parking lot than to travel 200+ miles to a track.

 

I want a 88 civic hatch and race in sfm.

It's not just about the rifle.

Belgium's gotten some rotten press attention and people jump that bandwagon.

It's fun, I guess. But then finding 'fun facts' get's on my nerve. That's not even criticism, that's trolling.

 

The user posting about his problems with a Belgian firm generalises.

Blaming a whole population for the errors of a few persons is reta.... it's... it's 'not very gentlemanly'.

Point fingers at the man to blame. 

 

And it's not like it's better in other bureaucracy's around the world.

 

 

 

Ended things with my other half today. Was too much about fixing damage and not enough about happiness. 2 and a half years, some serious Airsoft and drinking to do this weekend

You've done the right thing, probably.

It's way to early, but you'll enjoy your new freedom and after that will love again.

Also, you probably know all this. Just don't let the shoulders hang too much mate.

Do what makes you happy. Go out, get some buddy time, some mancave time and perhaps some sexy time.

And if it helps, travel a bit, it clears the mind :)

Perhaps. You make me smile but I'm not planning on commenting any further. I have a very short fuse now-a-days. Not that I should apologize for that. It's just working on my nerve that I've become this way.

 

Bright side: i have money for my shrink! ^^

About soldiers on the streets? A politician had a good point there:

- ALL of them are trained in first aid and combat wounds.

- ALL of them wear 2 tourniquet's and can prevent bleedouts.

- ALL of them wear flakvests and will provide aid even in the middle of an attack.

- ALL of them wear coms.

 

 

Yes. Old FNC. They shoot bullets just as well as any other assault rifle.

 

 

Excellent point.

 

And

 

I don't get it.  The FNC is a *fruitcage* outstanding weapon.

The Belgians have been utterly boss at making weapons for ever.

 

GPMG/M240B/FN MAG is utterly wonderful.

FNC, best of the 5.56mm weapons of its era (IMO).

SLR/FN FAL (THE RIGHT ARM OF THE FREE WORLD!) is a monster of a rifle.  People in the British Army still pine for its loss.

FN P90 ring any bells?

The F2000 was a bit of a turd but technologically impressive.

SCAR?

Minimi/M249?

Browning 9mm?

 

Good grief, you guys make some tidy weapons.
