    Hi

    I was just wondering how many younger members of this forum have, are or are thinking of joining a Cadet Force.

    I myself am a Cadet in the Air Cadets 500 Sqn.

    Just thought it would be interesting!

    Thanks

    First weapon I ever shot was the SLR in my high school unit of the Australian Cadet Corps at 14-later in the year (1975), first full auto shoot with the Automatic Rifle heavy barrel & bipod SLR-a real little branch of the army in those days!

    The SLR was the weapon we used in the Army in the late 70's. IMO a great weapon !

    The first weapon I fired was in the Air Cadets, a Lee Enfield 303 !
