good thing his dustcover is up.
Nice ziptie on laser/ir/whatever that is.
bad ass pic, but shouldn't he have a helmet on?
Sometimes you just do what you have to do.
where the fuck is his mich.
training exercise? why isn't he wearing a helmet?
There's a story behind that pic I can't remember right now.
I thought it was a series of photos of a British group and American group holding a building somewhere in Iraq.
this. IIRC, it was a surprise attack on a base by Talib/Al Q. in Afghanistan, and this Marine ran out to the trenches without enough time to grab anything other than his rifle.
He doesn't even have any extra mags.
"without time to grab anything other than his rifle."
Thats why Marines are so bad ass.
that's the sling
i believe he's talking about the device near the muzzle end of the rail
About the only time I would imagine you would have your top, kelvar, and iba
Yes. I remember it also being something like this.
thats a standard practice, They are responsible for their equipment if it gets lost or falls off.
They zip tie most of their optics in addition to the rail. If something happens and the rail/mounts get fubar'd at least teh zip tie will hold it on so they don't lose it.
