I will post the correct answers up tomorrow. In the meantime feel free to post your answers, but bear in mind the following:
- This quiz is designed to test what you know, not what you can google - if you cheat you're only cheating yourself...
- If you decide to post your answers you should avoid looking stupid by spelling correctly (e.g. 'Kalashnikov' not 'Klashnikof') and using correct terminology (e.g. 'a sniper rifle' not 'a sniper' when discussing a gun)
- I don't care how well you do, and so won't be tallying scores or giving out prizes
