The Lyrics

Parody of a parody X30!
G’s for General Purpose it meets,
P’s for production, Manroy completes,
M’s for (FN) MAG 58,
G’s for gunning down enemy troops by the scores

From the Falklands to the Balkans toured
(Today, Afghan War)

GPMG is Brit L7A2
24 lbs, 7.62 (mm)
Once it starts a-poppin’, there’s a chance it won’t be stoppin’,
‘til 50-round belt is used!

G’s for German parts from WW2,
P’s for protection for British troops,
M’s for mowing down jihad fools,
G’s for machine gun tool—tearing up charging hordes,
reducing them to fleshy pulps of gore

(ROF one cannot ignore)

GPMG as “Old reliable“ remains true;
GPMG worldwide is heavily used
Once a product of FN, mods rule,
parts no longer interchangeable!

GPMG: excels, kills best. . .
Better than .50 cal M2
Less weight, small, no real frills… one man kills, no crew
gas, automatic, drop bolt smooth
GPMG encountered spells doom
once was co-axial for Chieftain tank too!

GPMG scores hits, targets screwed
when 750 rpm is loosed
Blood pools: bodies lying in the desert- buzzard food

GPMG like MG-42 sure can be cruel…!!!

Thanks guys, in the gun mood. Got my HSC renewed and next month my PC832. And then a new German pistol (Walther first, HK second, Mauser new polymer not available in my area). The Beretta PX-4 in .40 cal is OK but overpriced at nearly $700 US.
