…the standard arm was the most beautiful firearm ever invented, the famous short Lee Enfield…….She’s
a museum piece now, but I still see her on T.V. newsreels, in the hands
of hairy, outlandish men like the Mujahedeen of Afghanistan and
capable-looking gentry in North Africa, and I have a feeling that she
will be loosing off her ten rounds rapid when the Kalashnikovs and
Armalites are forgotten.
