    With winter in full swing, the UK is particularly susceptible to the occasional snowfall, especially in the north of the country.

  • Paul Van Riper and the Millennium Challenge

    Royal Marines Saluting CaptainYes, the title may sound like a discarded Harry Potter spin-off series, but it is, in fact, serious stuff. The story of the Millennium Challenge has flown relatively under the radar for a number of years. It was first brought into public consciousness by Malcolm Gladwell and his book ‘Blink’; A non-fiction title which looked to educate us on the idea of ‘thinking without thinking’, the decision making process and the story behind our snap decisions. The book was published in 2005 and continues to be used in classrooms and lecture halls across the country. Gladwell wrote about the Millennium Challenge in a way that made it accessible for the masses to understand, something which had not been done until that point. This accessibility was what prompted a deeper dive into the events, and General Paul Van Riper’s role within them.

  • A Guide to Airsoft Brands – Part Three

    Airsoft Gun

    Following on from part one and part two of our guide to airsoft brands, like the Terminator, we are back. One of the best problems with airsoft is the sheer number of manufacturers there are. Either specialising in bringing specific designs to market, or focused in bringing a range of setups and guns, either at great prices or with high performance (occasionally both). In this article, we take a look at another set of airsoft manufacturers and brands and uncover what they are all about. Like in previous articles, we'll group them as either a 'budget' or 'performance' brand; however, there will occasionally be some crossover.

  • What is a Bullpup Gun?

    Bullpup Rifle

    For hundreds of years, classic rifles and firearms have used a ‘bulletproof’ technique of firing. The trigger, as with all weapons initiates the firing process with the firing action occurring either in line or slightly in front of the trigger. All the way from the very first matchlock guns in the 14th and 15th-centuries to the classic Colt models on the 1800s and 1900s and now with the modern rifles that come in all shapes and sizes, the style, although differing slightly, has been a uniform approach. That all changed when a significant innovation was introduced at the start of the 20th-century, the bullpup. But what exactly are these? Take a look below at our guide to bullpup weapons, their history and how they differ to classic rifles.

    Soldiers training with log

    The four words that are enough to crush the minds and spirits of potential US Navy SEALs, enough to send shivers down the spines of people that don’t even know what it is: “Welcome to Hell Week”. The name really says all you need to know; five and a half days of real hell, beginning on a Sunday and ending on the following Friday. But what does it involve? In this article, we look at one of the most gruelling and intensive training regimes used in the modern military world.
