"The Herd" have done a cover of the Redgum classic "I was only 19", and have recently put out a video clip to go with the song.

I was watching the clip the other night when I noticed a problem with this scene - the rear sight on the SLR is flipped halfway forward, making it totally useless.

Yes, you need to be a total SLR-pedant to notice wee things like that. It's been 15 years since I last carried one, and I still remember stupid troopers getting bawled out for not setting their rear sights properly.

It's funny how getting yelled at is good for making you remember things.
