The Bloke has recently unearthed some important Historical Documents relating to the SA80 adoption. In 1986, the cast of the BBC’s Grange Hill soap opera for kids produced a hit single as part of a campaign to un-adopt the SA80 and adopt the M16 or FN FNC in its place.
The campaign failed for unfortunate reasons.
This short video explains all.
(Yeah, the animation’s a bit bonk. But the preview in the editor is aligned perfectly, then the final rendered version is off. So I’m flying kinda blind, frame by frame…)
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
