This guy lives about 5 miles from me at the other end of Milton Keynes. If you order anything and you have any trouble let me know.

I can borrow Dicks medals, pistol and sinister vehicle and pay him a visit.

Believe it or not, among my medals (I actually have some), is an expert marksman medal.  It was achieved using an M-16 carbine on the range.  Prior to my entering the military the only "gun" I had ever fired was a Daisy BB gun!  I was terrible on the shooting range, and had to keep going back several times before I was able to qualify.  It was one of the stupid requirements that we be able to achieve a certain score.  Finally, on the 3rd or 4th time, I suddenly scored high enough to qualify for an expert marksman medal.  I never figured out exactly how that happened, as we certainly didn't get an opportunity to practice.  The only thing I can guess at is I was either *very* lucky, or the two guys on either side of me hit my target a bunch of times.  This was a possibility, because each time I went back to the range, the others there with me were all the rejects, like me, from previous attempts.

This medal is one of my greatest achievements of my life, and I never fired another gun since that time.
