Just browsing the news and I found this picture, does anyone else see something wrong here? Not very confidence inspiring, must not have sighted it in either since he would have noticed his adjustments were backwards...............
Also.. those little chinese anti personell mines... there about the size of a soft ball or so and are only made to take off a foot or hand... they are delivered by flying of the target area and shooting them out of tubes with compressed air... they activate themselves after impact with the ground... and here is the funny part... it actually says "this side up" in chinese on the top of the mine... :lol: Like the guys in the jets and helicopters launchen those things out by the hundreds if not thousands at a time over a field are going to be able to control where and how they land. :roll:
Ok... i downloaded the pic and zoomed in on it.. it appears to be an M-68 Aimpoint... and it is BACKWARDS!!! Aiming at him... instead of down the barrel. I also notice he has a Chalker style sling... or thats what it appears to be. I cant really see it to well... but no matter what kind of sling he is using he is holding that rifle like a kid in boot camp who came from the upper part of the gated off community. :lol:
I can't remember the exact caption, but he was posted outside a Finacial Center after those three guys were indicted for terrorist plots. He was said to be part of the NY special react unit, but I'm guessing , or hoping your right snowy.
If the guy is just a beat cop, in that case he probably didn't even know it was on backwards. I think in the vein of what snowy said, its some sort of trick....maybe for a krummer lauf bent barrel mp44 type system? lol.
If he did know it was on backwards...Man, cover it with your hand or something! at least when you see people taking your picture lol.
Glad to know I'm already more than capable of being an NY SWAT armourer. I wonder what else in that weapon that we can't see is assembled backwards
