What is the deal with the red strip/paint on the rear of the receivers? London is a fun place for observing G36c's, MP5's and MP7's -- all over the place!Out front of the US Embassy in Grosvenor Sqare. Figured I would snap a pic on my way out. I asked, they obliged. I've got another in front of Buckingham Palace coming up, but that was with a different camera.
Good grief, this picture slays me. I wish I could remember more of the tour of England I had before my last visit, but I'm almost sure I drove right by this exact scene. It was in northern central England and went on for miles and miles of soggy bogland with absolutely no sign of it ever having been inhabited. Looked like a great place to lose your entire cavalry to enemy longbowmen in a Medieval battle. My wife and I started amusing ourselves by making up phony English place names like "Bleakingdon" and "****eschester" and "Mildewshire" going through there. We eventually made it to the astonishingly beautiful Lakes District that looks like something out of a Tolkien fantasy novel and wondered "What in the HELL do you think was that swampy wasteland behind us, anyway?"
