Which British beers should I be avoiding, just for future reference?

Newcastle Brown Ale, Old Speckled Hen, and in my opinion, Boddingtons. Most beer people will tell you Greene King IPA is good but I loving hate it.

What's with the 'ring with mesh in the middle' thing hanging off the back of the handle?

The gun has a standard Aimpoint with killflash (centered above sight post).

I answered your question before you asked it. I suppose it could also be an ACOG with killflash but I am very tired and can't be bothered to check closely.

Having optics mounted off center works fine if you only need them zeroed at one particular distance. If you shoot at anything other than the zeroed distance, you need to compensate vertically and horizontally.

The off-center red dot sight is a response to the "magnified primary optic" doctrine... though I don't know why you'd do that on an AR? Usually it's seen on SASR or bolt guns.

I thought the practice was just to roll the gun to one side to put the backup on top?

I have no idea what this is, but am I right in assuming its just to break up the muzzleflash so that you dont go blind while wearing NV gear?

No, it keeps your optic from being visible to the enemy by reflecting light.

definitely an ACOG. You can see the fiberoptic tube on the top and an Aimpoint would have the same red tint that the mini has.

There's a real split of opinion on Newcastle Brown ... either you love it or hate it. Personally I find it a bit light and gassy, but a good refreshing drink.

dude if you think Coors Light in the bottom of the barrel of American beers you've never truly plumed the depths


also the best English beer I've ever had is Thomas Hardy. It took like a half hour to fully appreciate the 10oz bottle, but it a complete experience.

No we don't. Asking for a Jameson dropped into a Guinness will get you a withering look for ruining two perfectly good drinks.

Also Joyce was a hilariously dirty bastard. His letters to his lady friend are full of mentions of "buggery and farting". I do like A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man though.
