Thread: An article which I enjoyed...

    An article which I enjoyed...

    I came across this article while searching for something that I had forgotten by the time I finished reading it.
    Oddly (on both counts) is from GQ and by A.A. Gill.

    Was I right to find it quite thought-provoking, if a little pretentious?

    Thanks Dalua, for posting that. I had not expected such glorious prose from A.A.Gill, on this subject. He has managed to collect so many elements of stalking in his story. Thanks, John.

    An excellent read, thank you for that.

    Although it's made me wish I was there rather than here.

    I'm glad you chaps enjoyed it also.

    The only other thing by AA Gill I've read is a dubious racy novel that I was given by a dubious racy pal in the mid-90s, so this article came as a bit of a surprise!

    I thought it was a Scout (foldy-away bipod, spare magazine in butt, spaghetti-thin fluted barrel): until I realised that one of the more refreshing parts of the author's outlook was that he wasn't interested in rifles, and immediatedly stopped thinking about it.

    Great read! I can fully understand how one would get sidetracked with that story. At some point, we all go back to where we came from.
