Historical Martial Arts of a Different Kind…!

In a change from swords, we headed to deepest Wales for a fantastic Historical Rifle Day with WMS Firearms Training.  We got the chance to shoot some old WW2 rifles – Lee Enfiield, Mauser, Mosin Nagant, to name a few – and even an original 1914 WW1 SMLE rifle.  Head instructor Andrew and military history expert Mark took us through the history of the rifles and successfully got us hitting targets at 100m, 200m and even 850m.  It was a brilliant day and a really interesting detour for us into our more recent martial past.  (But we still prefer swords!)
