    The dark one.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The No4 is a Savage, yes? Love the woodwork.

    I'd take whichever one shoots the best!

    You could do a lot worse than that. Good on you.

    Thought so, that tiger stripe wood is found on quite a few savages. Gorgeous. Be careful with battle rifles, they get addictive and lead to BRD in the long run......

    Nice seeing 303s with all their clothes on

    Add one of those long WW1 bayonets on the (No1 Mk3?) would be so sweet.

    I quite often get the one out of the safe and think about having to lug it around for miles.

    It is interesting when you read into the psychology and history of close combat. A lot of men used to use these things like clubs, often swinging from the muzzle end. Cant do that with our modern pieces of plastic! Last deployment I was unarmed. I compensated by buying my Mini 30 online while I was still over there. Wife went nuts at me, but f*ck it, I was sick of AKs pointing my way.
