In the second pic, what's that attached between the canteen and the ass pack on the Marine's deuce gear? It looks like a pair of grass clippers.

You should have said "Marines Training on THE Bataan" You had me thinking that we were finally going to do something about the Americans being held by Abu Sayyef

Great idea for a portable target stand. Two uprights and some rope.

What is with the 7ft distance? CQB drill? Or are they shooting .22LR out of that thing?

I think it's just the depth perception of the photo. I saw the same on the news and they looked to be at least 25 yards or so.
