HK IN ACTION AROUND THE WORLD:  CHOICE OF THE ELITE
A PHOTO COLLECTION OF ACTUAL WORKING TEAMS

PAGE 8

 

 

Members of the Korean Police SWAT Team prepare for stadium duty.  The male member in the rear seems to lending a helping hand to his female colleague.  Stock MSG90s for both.

 

Female sniper with Korea Police SWAT unit and MSG90, apparently same as in the photo above.  Looks like a baseball cap is hanging off the scope, but something is taped to the rifle, and is also hanging off the side.  Appears to be some type of field expedient brass catcher.

 

Members of the Hong Kong Airport Security Unit with MP5A3s and optical sights.

 

Another photo from Der Spiegel showing KSK member in Afghanistan.  AG36 40mm grenade launcher is clearly visible.

 

Here's something that you don't see every day, especially on a motorcycle, and especially in California.  Torrance, California motor officer with MP5SF riding "subgun." Paul Hern photo.

 

Another shot of the motor officers from Torrance, California.  Though not plainly visible on this photo, far right officer has MP5A5 with burst trigger group, while officer in the middle has MP5SF.  I would venture a guess that some officers are SWAT, and have select-fire.  Paul Hern photo.

 

Yikes!  Not sure this belongs on a page with "The Elite."  Gun is set to "semi," and finger is on trigger, at busy World Cup Soccer tournament.  No obvious threat present, and a stadium full of people with the muzzle up.  New award for unsafe gun handling gets my vote.
