European Drill Team
« on: November 19, 2010, 07:16:51 pm »
I got this one from my gunshopguy;  They are the Norwegian Royal Guard Regiment. (A free translation of my poor Spanish.)

Here is a video of a European drill team doing their show.  It’s a little bit slow to start, but it picks up at about 2 ½ minutes or so into the video.

Those are US M-1 Garand rifles (WWII vintage) in .30-06 that they are “tossing” around, and they are fairly heavy rifles, weighing in at about 9 pounds each.

(Guess I’ll have to get out my own M1 Garand and do some serious practice to see if I can nail down that one guy’s “wind-milling” trick …, but I think I’ll leave the bayonette off of the rifle for the time being …)
