Looks like the PFC in the first picture needs some more training in handling 1911 style weapons.

Mainly because it looks like the mag is still in it and of course the hammer is back. But it could just be my monitor and I can't see clearly enough to tell about the mag.

Cool to see the German KSK guys. Served with them during OEF 01-02. Kick ass guys who loved to trade beer for MRE's.

You ever get a close look at most of them, imagine them in Waffen SS uniforms. Same superman look as their grandfathers.

Nice pics again Lumpy.
