    Maybe the camera looked like a grenade?

    Dunno, but whatever game they're playing it looks like he might be in last place. That, and the right-side folding stock is interesting.

    I'm not seeing it as out of the ordinary. While I heartily approve, our military and police do the same everyday.

    What kind of rifle is that? Looks like an AK variant but the dust cover looks different.

    Not that hard. Nothing some training doesn't accomplish. There's thousands of 18 year old Privates out there who do the same thing under pressure.

    When did Dave Chappelle start working security?

    I took C. Robert McDowell's HG101 class out in McKean, PA a few years back. Very emphatic about trigger discipline. To illustrate his point, he showed us a very striking picture he has hung on the wall - a wounded Marine in Iraq, carried out by his buddies after a brutal close quarter fight with insurgents hiding in a house. His sidearm is in one hand, and it's clear beyond any doubt that despite all he's gone through - his trigger finger is exactly where it's supposed to be.

    What am I missing? I see a guy yelling at a cameraman -- most people can look all manner of scared or silly when their picture's being taken at a rate of thirty a second.

    His finger looks to be off the trigger.

    Rifle looks like a South African Galil clone, probably an R5.

    I wonder if these guys are related?

    Dust cover definitely looks like a Krinkov, hinged at the front, but the stock folding to the right is messin' with my head. That, and the housing for the hinge mech of the stock sticks out an inch or so past the rear of the rec'r instead of flush like a Krink.

    Has an AK-style charging handle, gas tube and lower handguard...any other guesses?

    Well, he's also a lefty, so shooting with the stock folded would be a lot more comfortable. I'd much prefer a right side folding stock (provided it doesn't interfere with the bolt or ejecting empties). Looks like an AK platform with a (possibly) custom side folding stock.

    Reversed picture?

    Don't think the photo is reversed, his coat buttons are on the correct side. I agree with a South African R5.

    Folds to the right, but it's not a wire folder.

    Yeah now that you mention it, the back trunion also isn't right for an East German.


    Now I'm really curious!
