    It's not really firearm related but I figured there would be a lot of people at this forum that would have a deep appreciation for this picture. If this thread gets locked, whatever, I still had to post it. To all those that have served honorably, my hat is off to you.

    That's gotta be one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Thanks. :)

    Wonder what they're doing? Training exercise?

    Where they tell me to go
    I'm pretty sure that's Afghanistan (the 10th just got back last month, some elements might still be there).

    It's not a training exercise. Excellent pilot!

    I saw that picture a while back described as US Marines loading wounded comrades onto that chopper in Afghanistan.

    Impressive flying!

    I've met some of the original 10th Mtn people - a very interesting group !! Yes they just returned to Ft Drum here in NY.

    Upon trying to find a high res version of that pic I ran across this...
    An actual pair of military grade Beer Goggles. Wow I thought those were a thing of myths :D

    This looks fun too :) http://www.usmc.mil/marinelink/image1.nsf/Lookup/200651323926

    They really should feed these more often. Quite an appetite [​IMG]

    Still no luck finding that particular one :(

    Helicopters don't fly - they just beat the air into submission. * :)

    . . . not really firearm related . . . ?

    Uh, yeah it is.

    I can clearly see at least one rifle in that pic.

    I think I can make out a second as well.

    Nope. When I took Health last year a police officer came in with a pair. It just distorts your vision and you cant walk a straight line or catch a ball. And the first time you put them on you cant stop laughing.:p Theres a website out there that sells them for $99.


    Gun related: That police officer was wearing a nice Sig:cool:
