Palestinians and their wonderful weapons training. I always wonder why insurgents and others take the stock off, or don't extend the folding stocks on their AKs.

I want to know who is taking these pictures of the "insurgents". If I had to bet I would say a Reuters photographer, but even they may be fair game to kidnap so maybe it's a photographer of Middle Eastern origin.

But even if they weren't of Middle Eastern origin, why would the insurgents want to mess with their own propaganda distribution team?

I've done that exactly that, carrying a 203 with a homemade two point sling. That's one of the great things about a two point-if you're humping your weapon around for a long time and one carry position gets uncomfortable, there's all kinds of ways you can hang it.
