Pistols?

Regardless of rank or rate, if you need a pistol, you'll receive the appropriate training and be issued one.

Strange question...why do you ask?





Edited to add: And by "need", I mean "if your job/role requires you to be armed with a short-barrelled weapon".

Could be for one of several reasons mate....
maybe he's required to be armed, but a rifle wouldn't be appropriate to his role...
or
...as he's training Afghan police, who will be armed with pistols, he might well be armed with a similar weapon so as to better demonstrate certain techniques.

could be a whole host of other reasons......bottom line.....he is required to carry a pistol, so he's carrying one.

Yeahh true actually, he'd need something for self defense too, just in case there's a bad nut there, thanks for clearing it up Squirrel and Streaky :D

As a Leading Hand, I was 2i/c of one of the security watch at Culdrose, and i was issued a 9mm.

Pain in the rump, having to carry it.

When they first started arming the QM and Bosun's mates, the diving teams didn't know what had hit them. All those extra hours searching the bottom for 9mils dropped over the side after bored upper deck staff had been practicing their Wild Bill Hickok routines and quick draw techniques.

Oops, sperlash!

Yes they do and if that isnt scary enough. They give them to baby WRNS as well.
I rember on the range. the PO gunner shouting at the lass next to me who was crying at the time. Dont shoot with your **** ing eyes closed.
ANother lass left the weapon in auto and emptyed a mag.
Its a very scary place and the gunners down there deserve danger pay.

Remember my first time on Trevoll range, I am right handed and in the prone position with SLR, let off a couple of rounds...did not even hit the target...bolloxing from GI , 'Are you left 'anded ' No sir ' 'Are you blind ' 'No sir ' ' Then you must be left eyed, change hands and continue firing '....changed over and hit the bull first time :thumright:
