    I think that ANY serviceperson deployed to a combat zone should earn at least $50,000 a year. E-1, dependents or not, doesn't matter. They are wearing the target t-shirts.

    It was loud and raised a cloud of dust. :) He's being a poser here. The shooter and observer of the rifle were assigned to protect him on his mountaintop comms site.

    For those who served/are serving, thanks for you service.

    3 quick questions on the 7th photo in the first post (093.jpg):

    1. What kind of rifle?

    2. Is the recoil so low it does not bop the shooter on the nose?

    3. How could the guy in the upper left have a beard? Relaxed grooming standards? He is a foreign exchange solider?

    The rifle is the G3A4 (or a copy of it) I believe. Don't look like US soldiers to me. If they are, it's waaaay old (choc chip camo) and I don't have a clue why they'd have that wany G3s. Might have one or two for familiarisation, along with some FALs and AKs but they look like standard issue. I think the soldiers are Turkish.

    Great photos.

    Hate to be picky but:

    I hope that's not loaded and has been proven :eek:
