This guy probably has some formal training, but he should move back so that his muzzle isn't sticking out. The dumbass will probably get nailed by a 50 AP round coming thru the wall.

As for the Iraqi bugger aiming through the hole in the wall, I hope a tank puts a shell up his nose.

Hmmm....let's see here...

Kinda good position until spotted. +1
A hole in the side of a building that periodically spouts smoke. (He has the muzzle sticking out) -1
He's got some sandbags, +1
but not enough and not stacked 2 deep. -1
Wall would not stop or slow a .50 round at all. -1
Buttstock unsupported and poor cheekweld. -2
Resting barrel on solid surface to throw off the harmonics of a rifle that may have dubious accuracy in the first place. -2

(Mumbling and counting on fingers) Let's see...down by 5.

LOOKS GREAT!!!!

This is a great picture......I just hope no Jihadi's reading this sight, and somehow lets others in the middle east aware of this.

Hopefully it doesnt' affect OPSEC.....and endanger our soldiers out there, but this is IMHO.


Great pictures as always Lumpy.....your postings make my day, that is, until you go 1 day, without posting......

What's wrong with this statement:

"Barefoot and pregnant"




Should be "barefoot and not dying of a sucking chest wound yet".

What rifle is in the backround? This guy MUST be a qualified sniper, or one must be in the room. Ordinary grunts wouldn't carry a weapon like that.

Any rounds impacting that site are gonna penetrate. He didn't make actual cover, just concealment. After his shot misses, he's screwed.
He also has a limited field of fire. If the bad guys don't come right at him he's screwed.

From the brake, it looks like the Barret semi-auto .50 cal. I'm sure there's a sniper in the group, but I'm not sure who. I can probably find out whose rifle that is on Monday, but the best you'll get out of me is "that guy's" or "his battle buddy's" or "someone in his squad." I'm not going to publically attach names to any of these guys.

Not that this situation would necessitate it but a 25mm AP shot from a Bushmaster cannon would dispatch this fucker quite nicely.

It's a combat zone with snipers everywhere. Give the guy a break. Besides, there is nobody behind the weapon.

I don't think that is a barret. The brake on the end looks .50-ish though. Maybe a MacMillan .50?

In any case, our snipers are probably having a real field day out there. The only question I have is why we haven't put snipers around where this Sadr guy surfaces and popped him yet.
