When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
yeh Leeds is! Dont confuse me.....
Liverpool is 29th! I hope
Right.... Liverpool Arms Fair.... absolutely garbage for guns today! It was mostly antique rifles and shotguns, and a few revolvers! I was disappointed as soon as I walked in there!
After walking around in circles for over an hour, I noticed a Lee Enfield No4. It was marked up at £220... which is a good price I think. I had a little play with it, then walked away, then went back and forth several times. I offered the stall holder £200 and he accepted!
Then I went to admire a lovely Bren Mk1 dated 1943 and deactivated in 2004. The stall holder had only bought it this morning. He wanted £300 for it. I had a little play with it, and just fell in love with it (I've never held a Bren before) I only had £265 left on me, and after a few negotiations, I managed to get the guy down to £280. So one of the boys borrowed me £15, and now I'm a proud owner on a Bren Mk1
Sorry about the picture quality, my digi camera is broke!
