Polite and well mannered :good:

As in, they don't use derisory terms to describe others who may shoot different disciplines to their own lol

We suggests it's politic to call anyone carrying a rifle "Sir"

Only 8 posts but here we go.....

You need to be very careful what sort of things you call people. Some of the less enlightened among us like to use the word "Walt" to define anyone shooting a service rifle.

Many wont get too worried about this because they don't really know what the term "Walter Mitty" actually means. The term "Walt" has been used by servicemen and women for decades, to describe those that either have never served (but act in a way to imply they have) or worse still imply they have served in some sort of SF unit.

The problem when you start bandying this sort of rubbish about is that you tar all of us with the same brush which I (and many others) find pretty offensive. Some of the "Walts" shooting SR(a), SR(b) CSR and the various service type disciplines did serve, some in a pretty brave and distinguished manner In Oman, The Falklands, Ops Herrick and Telic, and many other beside across the various forces. Aside of this you also imply that the discipline as a whole is rancid with a bunch of swivel eyed, raving fantasist...which is untrue.

Sure I have had a dig at TR shooters, but this is usually face to face and people I know (who also shoot CSR) and I have had the odd run in with a few rather rude examples, or those that believe there is nothing outside of their chosen discipline, but they are what they are, otherwise we should stand together and support shooting, not bitch and divide. Its this sort of jack crap that leaves the lever release and .50 people where they are. As for "Fudds" never heard it and I have been about shooting for at least 5 miniutes ;)

The only "name calling" for different shooting disciplines/groups that I've come across are from US shooting forums. You have your fudds, mall ninjas, bubba etc. but in fairness I've very rarely come across these terms in UK forums.

I'd reccomend you tell your friend to check out the US forums if they wish to learn some more terms :)
