MrsAmber from United Kingdom

What is it about you boys and guns? (See Jeffs pic today!). Well its a good capture - hope you were allowed to take this shot and the MoD aren't going to come and arrest you!

Prince Harry was at Castlemartin again a couple of weeks ago..One day i'll catch him on camera,hope it comes out as good as this shot has, i'm well impressed with it..

@Jeff: The easiest way to do that is to find out where all the squadies got to get hamered at the weekend and wait until chucking out time,Harry is bound to be there !!

Mellofello from Bromley, United Kingdom

So that's a real one! It's a great shot, Anthony but I hope I never come up against one like it.
Would love to drive one though.

@Mellofello: You get banged about sitting in the back I can promise you !!
