    Gun trivia, test question, it will be interesting to see who can answer it.

    As a young trainee I found a small pocket about 1.5" square with a little flap on my rifle sling. I asked what it was for?

    Who here knows the answer..

  13. In Tranter's case, it may well be in the days of the Brown Bess, or at least the Martini-Henry, Delta. ::::ducking:::: :D;):p
