A US Marine, In Scotland, With his SA-80

    A USMC vet emailed us photos of a Marine friend of his training in Scotland. His friend really liked the SA-80 with its short length, full auto switch and recoil management. His criticisms were that it was rear heavy (par for the course with a bullpup) and unfamiliar fire controls.

    “Go for a hike they said. It’ll be fun they said. Nobody mention scaling vertical cliff faces!”

    I thought I would throw in a couple other photos of the beautiful scottish countyside.
