Note strange camo pattern of the guys in the back left and right. Should be Germans as they undoubtedly carry G36s but the camo isn't Flecktarn.

Any idea?

Found some more:





Caption says "German soldiers guarding the airport of north Afghan city of Faizabad, while German minister for defence, Peter Struck, is visiting German troops."

Thanks to "He219", as so often /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Good eye on the open holster!

Operators train through muscle memory, repeating various acts, such as malfunction clearing drills, several times until it is a reaction, rather than a consious act.
Therefore you will find most operators will not unlock their holsters "wild west style" to ensure the the weapon is retained while moving, and the mechanics of the draw are the same every time.

I love the Safariland holsters for the ease of retention under stress, but when you carry certain pistols with an exposed hammer in the "cocked and locked" position, they sometimes get snaged on the hammer on the way up and do not close the entire way. This half closed position really stinks because the hood will prevent the weapon from being drawn, and the release mechanism will not be in the proper position to engage with the thumb. This situation will cause the operator to have to hunt for the release slowing down his weapon transition. From the half closed position it appears this is what has hapened to this guy.

Really cool pics guys, keep em coming! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Superb pics, as always! Thanks, Carl...and He219...he just always has pics I've never caught a glimpse of before....:)

I especially like the GraPi pic with the 40-grenade rushing off. How did the GIs like the P8? They have a Baretta in .45 issued, right? So they can't be too impressed by a lousy 9mm sidearm /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

thanks again,

ben
