I would have thought that with the excetption of exotics, that the M14 would be one of the least common rifles in Africa. I'm not aware of any commercial sales of the M14, and I'm unaware of any 'aid' rifles given to African countries.

Great stuff, as usual....

Thanx Lumpy

Ok, Haitian policeman using a Garand...interesting.

The "slum" kids of Sadr City seem to know what soap is and clean clothes are. "slum"....here they call it the "inner city" and "underdeveloped nieghborhoods" and the people are cracked-out and dirty; yet somehow worthy of a PC term for their vermin infested slice of hell. In other countries...they are just "slums" according to the media.....

Tell me that is NOT a Glock!

Doesn't he know that NOBODY uses those things over in the sandbox(es)? Doesn't he know it will go KABOOM? He obviously doesn't spend any time on ar15.com or he would have learned that! I mean, he can pick any handgun he wants yet he picked a GLOCK! Man, some people just don't know any better

Theres a whole series of photos from the same photographer in the same building on the same raid:

cache.gettyimages.com/comp/51403839.jpg?x=x&dasite=MS_GINS&ef=2&ev=1&dareq=E2399169AC85D6DE5CC12330C0B84608E26E3F96F2A7F­E5BE54FAB60F42A51F3

Looks awful Marpattish to me.....but I dont have a clue from that first grainy picture.

Unless of course you're talking about the Iraqi National Guardsman on the left holding the Bulgarian AK...

No. Blackwater contractors are ISSUED the Glock as well as their carbine. They don't get a whole lot of say in what they carry...
