You have to wait until you've scored 1500 points with the SA80, then you can upgrade to a Phase Plasma Rifle in the 40 watt range with underslung MiniNuke launcher like they use in 'Starship Trooper'.

I thought you had signed the official secrets act!
 
Course it's an issue. Ever tried wanking with ur left hand? Not as much fun is it! Imaginbe if you had to play pool, or darts left handed. Would tyou consider that an "issue". Us lefties are getting shit on and it IS an issue for us. Plus we're also left eye domminant so it's not as easy shooting. Especially while on the move or snap shooting.

the M16 is a better weapon than the SA80, The AK is a better weapon the SA80, the G3 is, The FAMAS is. All these weapons can be fired from the left shoulder and they are used successfully in the theatre of war and on XBox Live all over the world.[/quote]

Err, yes...it's ok actually, you can half convince yourself it's a lovely jenny occifer doing the deed. :wink:

the SA80 isn't popular as there are no computer games (except stalker where it's one of the poorer weapons) feature the SA80 in them

Battlefield 2 features it......

To fire it left handed, extend your left hand in front of you and fire it one handed with a gritty look on your plug, blinking with each round, but you need an Ahnold one liner like "aaaahl be beck" to really make it stick.

I have the oddest, dim memory from years ago that there was such a thing as a left-handed Lee-Enfield although I never saw one (and being right-handed, didn't care anyway). Anyone else heard of it?

A few custom made jobs were turned out by civvy gunsmiths, but no RO versions.

And what problems are these? The right handed thing isnt really an issue. I think the pros of having a shorter weapon out weigh it.
I think im right in thinking that if we had a weapon that could be fired from either hand it would have to be longer like an M16 is right?

Nails, I am left handed and have no problems shooting any semi auto/full auto rifle right handed. Of course you could use the environmentaly friendly solution as practised by an Arab soldier at Bisley many years ago, he fired the Steyr AUG left handed, the cases just bounced of his beard!

Your reference to the SA80 on the one hand for combat purposes and computer games on the other suggests a problem differentiating between reality and phantasy.

Lets be honest now, what's the point in havcing top quality training (for the mot part) yet give our troops **** rifles?. the SA80 is, to be quite honest, a bag of sh!t. The problems with are too numerous to list but the worst is the terrible, terrible attribute of it being a strictly right handed weapon. Thus putting left handed/eyed shooters at a disadvantage, and anyone wanting to shoot around a left hand corner in serious danger.

So does anyone know when the SA80 is to be replaced with a better weapon. Hell get some AKs in if we have to. It goes to show that the SA80 isn't popular as there are no computer games (except stalker where it's one of the poorer weapons) feature the SA80 in them. Know what i'm saying?

As far as your concerned lofty it doesn't matter when they will be replaced as i doubt very much you will ever get to use one except of course the cadet version!!!

Yeah should be okay, just think of it as another day out Airsofting!!
