Ian is pretty well known to test and try out WWII guns, one of the most accurate guy when talking about WWII weapons, he know his stuff for sure.

Today I visited a XVIII/XIX century fort and was very surprised to see a shooting range available for anyone there. Even more surprising was that I had a chance to fire shots from Kar 98, Mosin and PPSh, which I never expected form Napoleonic wars :D (I ignored the AK47 :D). Mosin was just awesome! From 8 shots I fired I hit the "10" 5 times, "9" 2 times, and one "8". Mauser had more recoil and the crosshair was not as comfortable as in mosin. The PPSh was much heavier, especially the magazine, than the previous two rifles and had enormous recoil, it was very hard to hit the target with it :D.

Yes I am the WW2 weapons enthusiast now :D!

also interesting. Didnt know the tripod from axis was so advanced and that MG42 was such a beast to controle but in return more friendly to dirt than mg34.
