Photo from a seized armory.

The Icy Hot Stuntaz, bling blinging the 2G2, were found fighting for the Republican Guard. Coalition troops nailed Freeze, but Blade and Da Flame were taken into US custody after being injured in a firefight, whereafter they were sent to detention and had to take a note home to their parents :D

Sorry pax, no.

From Foxnews.com:

"The men of A Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, found 21 briefcases specially designed to hold Heckler and Koch MP-5K 9 mm submachine guns. The guns could be fired by pulling a trigger on the handle of the case. There were also several silencers for 9 mm pistols and a gold-plated MP-5 fitted with a silencer in a presentation case. "

If you could buy one without going through the NFA and other gun control BS, would you still think it was ugly? (Assuming you couldn't buy the standard non pimp version)

It's not photoshopped. All sorts of weird "pimpalicious blingbling bangthings" are turning up over there. In addition to crimes against humanity, we can also rack up "crimes against good taste" :barf:.

The US should start a company somewhere in the ME to gold plate machine guns.
But we would never actually send the gun back.
Just a booby trap in the orig. box.

We'd get the BG's a lot quicker that way. We would be the Policemen of the Planet and The Plant's Fashion Police all rolled into one.

S- , That's the best idea I've heard all week, just make sure we also specialize in 8" bbl. Krinkovs too so we cover all our bases. If I work there do I get to keep the guns?

Now the TRUE reason for the invasion of Iraq ..... torturing poor weapons. The cruelty of it all! :what:

P.S. There was a FOX news report on TV over the weekend where they found creates of gold plated AK's and hand guns and the like ... with medallions in the stock. They were given to Saddam's "friends". Many were killed shortly after receiving the guns, the report said. Anyone have pics of those?

++++++++++++++++
Edited:

At least a dozen Bushmaster XM-15 rifles, knockoffs of the U.S. Army's M16A4 and M4 assault rifles, and dozens of boxes of Colt Diamondback revolvers, were also in the collection.

The most valuable weapons were antique muskets in presentation cases. There were also dozens of knives and swords, many gold-plated.

Soldiers marveled at the collectible editions of common military weapons, German-made G3s, Kalashnikovs and gold- and silver-plated M-1 Carbines.

"I wish I had never seen this," said Capt. Chris Carter of Watkinsville, Ga. "I'll never be able to look at my gun collection the same way again."

Poor guy. :( :(

He went halfway around the world to defend freedom, and he himself doesn't have enough freedom to bring home any cool weaponry he can afford.

That is really, really sad. :(

What an atrocious blend of good firepower with over-indulgence. I think they should give it to me so I can properly dispose of it.

May never know, since the Iraqi obviously went to the French Army's school of "homeland defense"! (i.e. Has to be fired before it can melt.) :neener:

Weapons Cache for Saddam's Son Odai Found
CHRIS TOMLINSON
Associated Press


BAGHDAD, Iraq - U.S. troops walked into a two-story house in an enclave of Saddam Hussein's Baath Party on Friday and discovered boxes of Italian pistols, Soviet-era Kalashnikovs and American-made rifles still wrapped in plastic, along with an inventory that said they belonged to the president's son, Odai.

A log book in the Baghdad house had a page that read "Odai Hussein's Weapons Store." U.S. soldiers pocketed pistols and knives they said were rare collectibles until they were told to put the weapons back.

Loose ammunition of all types and calibers covered the ground in the Baghdad house, spilling out of hundreds of crates. The cache included a small anti-aircraft gun, stacks of Kalashnikovs, sniper rifles, machines guns and brand-new U.S. and Austrian assault rifles, many wrapped in factory plastic.

The Austrian rifles were still in their cardboard shipping boxes from the Steyr Mannlicher Aktiengesellschaft in Steyr, Austria.

The 5.56 mm rifles had been sent to "Off. of HRH Pr. Abdullah Bin Al-Hussein; Special Op. Command; Jordan Armed Forces; P.O. Box 848 Amman," the shipping papers said.

How they reached Baghdad, or when, could not be determined, but these particular still-in-the-box weapons looked new enough to have been manufactured after a U.N. arms embargo was placed on Iraq.

Boxes of ammunition and weapons discovered in southern Iraq by American forces in the first days of the war bore the address of the Jordan Armed Forces.

In Jordan, government officials scoffed at the idea the weapons found Friday were supplied to Iraq after the imposition of U.N. sanctions in 1990.

"If there was something found, it could've been very old, much before 1990," one official told The Associated Press.

"In the Arab world, it's common to exchange gifts, and the boxes said to be found - which are apparently of a trivial quantity - are very much in line with that custom," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Baghdad house had been looted by Iraqi civilians before the Americans arrived. Hundreds of empty Berreta pistol boxes littered the street and covered the floors.

At least a dozen Bushmaster XM-15 rifles, knockoffs of the U.S. Army's M16A4 and M4 assault rifles, and dozens of boxes of Colt Diamondback revolvers, were also in the collection.

The most valuable weapons were antique muskets in presentation cases. There were also dozens of knives and swords, many gold-plated.

Soldiers marveled at the collectible editions of common military weapons, German-made G3s, Kalashnikovs and gold- and silver-plated M-1 Carbines.

"I wish I had never seen this," said Capt. Chris Carter of Watkinsville, Ga. "I'll never be able to look at my gun collection the same way again."

The front page of the log book said Odai's weapons store was managed by Sameer Abel Hadi Hamed of the Special Security Service. A sample entry from Nov. 12, 2001, registered the arrival of "one 7.62 mm Tariq pistol in red box, in good condition."

One U.S. sniper found parts that fit his Remington rifle and picked up a new case for his.

U.S. commanders quickly sealed off the building and ordered troops to return any weapons they had taken. With a collective sigh, soldiers emptied their pockets of pistols and knives, putting them back in the building to be destroyed.

Soldiers took turns handling guns, including a fully automatic 12-gauge shotgun known among gangs in the United States as "street sweepers" and expensive shotguns designed for hunting and combat.

"I'm a shotgun man, and I know shotguns. That is one hell of a shotgun," 1st Sgt. Cedric Burns of Sylvania, Ga., said of an Italian-made Franchi, S.P.A.S. 12, mounted with a pistol grip for military use.
