  • Bren Gun Demo

    Came across this in my travels, and was surprised to see someone in Oz doing a Bren gun demo - in what looks like Victoria not doubt too. Nice.

    Drills and technique was atrocious, but who doesnt love a BREN?

    Thanks,

      So true on both counts. That bloke seriously needs the assistance of a Number 2 Gunner.

      The only thing I didn't like about the Bren was the underneath ejection. Shooting prone uphill or on a mound like he was is likely to result in some rather hot brass trickling down your shirt front!

    Damn it Tornado. Now I have "Piston, Barrel, Butt, Body, Bipod" going round and round in my head.

    No trees were harmed in the production of this post, but some electrons were greatly inconvenienced.

      Oh, that was at Lang Lang, I wasn't sure, but the mound looked familiar :lol:
      The range is practically a five minute walk from my front door :P

      Lovely piece of kit.

      Every mature experienced service rifle shooter should be licensed to own..........two Brens.

      One for shooting and one for back up.

        Good old Jeff and his Bren, lucky bugger :lol:
        I remember he brought it to the Lang Lang rifle club just across the road from my place for the El Alamein shoot, but I missed seeing it in action

      so whats the regulations or laws regarding private ownership of a bren in vic? what kind of license would it be held under? up here in QLD you can have one (if you can find and afford one) on a collectors license but it has to be welded up (deactivated) and certified as "dead" by an armourer. The only other way to have one here is under an armourer or theatrical armourer license - both very hard to get.

      If you can have a bren in Victoria - i am packing my bags now and moving! am sooooo jealous!
