    No it isn't, the L85A1 and A2 are SA80 variants. The L86's are LSW's
    It's what I got taught at cadets...

    Yes (protection because my own safety comes first)
    The person a gun owner is most likely to shoot is themselves.

    And yet there are plenty of muggings in the U.S., where anybody could be carrying a handgun.
    1) the more gun regulation you have, the more crime you tend to get in the USA - take detroit, for example
    2) switzerland has massive amounts of guns - in fact, every 18 year ol male is required to be trained to own and use a gun - and they have very little violent crime
    3) in one US state (or town/county, I can't remember) there was a law passed mandating that all houses had a gun in safe keeping. this caused crimes to fall in that region. I've just found you the link: https://www.rt.com/usa/gun-control-u...obama-nra-207/

    I agree misfires were very, very common. The SA80 is much better

    If Guns were legal in London, London would be the second Chiraq.
    Chicago was a city governed by extensive gun control.

    Not unless you are careful.

    Still are very common. Then again the most reliable weapon is the AK47 (afaik) and that had no accuracy:dontknow:

    Woah, that's a bit of a leap there, mate - why would migrants cause people to want guns more than usual, other than pure xenophobia?
    Do you live under a rock? Have you seen whats happening in Germany?

    I'm sure most gun owners consider themselves to be careful. The fact remains.

    Because it's so simple. Accuracy isn't that bad, but it's poor. The russians still use kalashnikovs

    No. I'd feel like it'd do more harm than good. I'm not trying to exist in a real life version of gta
    GTA is based on real life.

    Would you?
    your poll is a nonsense sicne S.1 and S.2 firearms are relatively easily obtained legally, and a variety of pof people including 'civilians' who are RFDs or have other specific reason can have S.5 firearms ...
