    Awesome pics! What kind of scope is on that FN-F2000?

    How much paperwork has to get filled out to get the hardware into those countries?

    Gentleman, please refrain from comments that don't meet The High Road standards. That includes incredibly witty statements about France and WWII.

    mig7410, those are some neat pictures. Thanks for sharing.

    What was the most interesting thing there?

    I do believe those rifles are actually french FAMAS bullpup rifles, not FN's.

    It does seem like way too much scope for a security detail...

    I think this is the first firearm I've ever seen that actually has the "shoulder thing that goes up"... :D

    These gentlemen look awfully kitted up for security and awfully slack to be soliders. Are you sure they weren't product demonstrators of some kind?

    Your probably right, I just snapped a photo and didn't ask questions.
    I saw many French Gendarmes walking the show.

    I can't tell if you are serious or not. You've never seen a BAR, M60, M249, PKM, MG4, L86A1, or any of the other firearms that have a "shoulder thing that goes up"?

    How was the jerky?

    Your location shows Cincinnati. I assume you have been to an American gun show. Is there anything similar for civilians in France? Europe?

    ^ There was an excellent show in Lausanne Switzerland when I was living there. I was in Geneva, but the Lausanne show was pretty good. I think a THR member even had some pics up on another thread.
