Also, that pistol that the Iraqi police officer is holding behind his back... is that a Glock of some sort? Perhaps a Glock 19?

The Iraqis were purchased a large quantity of black plastic stocked milled Bulgarian AKs.

Great issue, L-196!

I especially like the first one in BIG ASS HI RES

and a few thoughts:

Releasing 450 Iraqi prisoners will raise the # of targets for our soldiers by a factor of 450

Shotties make great master-keys

Circling a bombed out hulk that used to be a car...is not investigating

Iraqi's have very cool AKs

Glock made out in this Iraqi thing

We could learn a thing or two from the IDF on urban war fighting

It is laughable when your newly elected political candidate poses with armed security thugs in a basement

Filipino's better take heed, there is gathering threat to your way of life.


And cool guns are everywhere!
