Which Mark of Sten.... not just a Sten.... I think you may find is the question....

Also as said did FJ fight Brit Paras at Arnhem....

Later this year TFH will once again step across to the dark side... FJ and yes we will be carrying Stens.... what you cry ... how can you............ we can because it will be in context....

Carrying the right weapon in a 'Public' or 'Private' battle is always difficult... you buy an X MkY... so why should I then hire A or B ……..

So what to do.... be 101% on the button or.....

Me I have no answer for 'you' ....

But if ‘we’ put ourselves out there in print expect someone to have an opinion….

One for the great and the good.... and therefor not me

Realistically, people just need to own up that they want something that goes bang, no-one wants to pay out 70 quid a time, so its no big secret, doesn't mean that is a viable excuse out of context.

Rommel had 2 bollocks, but I never claim to have one in my sock,
If it's not right for the scenario in a display/public battle, then it shouldn't be there,

Not sure how many mk2's were at Arnhem so I couldn't comment.

you and me both-BUT this has been discussed before and would be wrong to go over again

this also shouldnt be seen as US A/B v FJR

This thread is about using the most accurate weapon for your scenario/context

and i agree-sten gun equals easy bang stick

german-get a k98
us-use a garand-means you have to "hire to fire" :wink:
brit-get a no4
italian-carcano
russian-nagant
etc etc
