How Many Elevation Clicks on That G3, URR?

Caption Contest!

FILE - In this Friday, Dec. 30, 2011 file photo, a member of the Iranian military takes position in a drill on the shore of the sea of Oman, on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011. For leaders on the Iranian side of the Gulf, the past days have offered some hard lessons in the politics of oil. Iran has watched as the leader of its most influential ally, China, began a tour of Gulf Arab states and other Asian envoys held talks with oil-rich Gulf rulers, who have shown growing confidence to stand up against rival Iran and use tougher tactics to try to gain the upper hand in their standoffs with the Islamic Republic.

Heh.  My guess is that, holding the weapon level, the bullet from Aqib's rifle there is going to go about a third of the way....

He might also have a bit of trouble with windage.

Meh.   Pull up your socks and blouse those boots properly.  Jundi.  Or whatever it is in Farsi.

Nice Camo.  for urban winter.    Mind you my last camo pattern was the blue/grey pool bottom spackle ACU.  But we were so Robo-Accessorized we looked really fcking cool.   Also the dust was thick enuf on us it kinda blended.

This POG puke is wearing a pristine set.   There's so little dirt on him, he could be a Sergeant Major.

Haji Muhammad Muhammad demonstrates the pose he will most likely be taking on the cliff he will most likely die on when Iran decides to close the Strait of Hormuz.  Muhammad states that he is hoping for 72 black eyed virgins, but would be content with a quick death at the hands of Americans rather than slow painful death at the hands of the Israelis.

puh-lease.....to the average uneducated member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Gallipoli is an exotic italian desert that they were probably serving on the Costa Concordia boat before it crashed

Retired Army said...

Man, the Iranians need to up their propaganda effort.  At least take a page from the German effort of making the "Atlantik Wall" far more formidable than it was. 

But the lone with a 7.62mm G3 seems about an even match for our LCS program - because each are about as serious in countering the efforts of the other.

Why is it that no one in that region can wear a beret right?

"That's right, Stennis. Just keep on moving."

as far as I know the politruk mentality, every victory of islamic forces over infidels within last 300 years is thoroughly lauded as an example to follow (it helps that there were not that many of those...)

DeltaBravo said...

He's practicing to shoot a dissident student in the USA. 

Now I'm wondering if it was a veiled threat....  check out the news from Houston today.

Adversus Omnes Dissident said...

WINNER.

LT Rusty said...

Pshaw.  7.62 means never having to adjust for elevation.  Haven't you heard?  It's the magic panacea for all distance issues.

Side note: I miss my G3.  Had to sell it before coming to Californistan.  Took a bath on it too ... when you're selling something like that on a time limit, you don't have time to wait for the right buyer.  :(

One big reason why I will never live in the Californian Soviet Socialist Republic.

And then suddenly, somewhere off in the distance, the soldier hears the faint strains of "Ride of the Valkyries"...

Jack Brown said...

So much for my caption. :)

LT Rusty said...

We're fighting the good fight on this stuff, though.  We've got a lot of really good court cases pending right now, one of which should let me put my AR-15 back to the way God and Gene Stoner intended.

Gotta remember: there's a LOT of California outside of LA and SF, and a whole lot of people that don't like the direction that our Glorious Leaders are taking us.  Problem is, the voting power is mostly in the cities, and other voices don't always get heard.  We're fighting, though.

It'll be a while before we can get full auto stuff in the People's Republic of California, though.  A very long while.

President Mahmoud Achmymomismydad tours another trial of yet another new advanced super-weapon designed first by the brilliant engineers os Islam.

"There is no match for this weapon in the world, another first from Islam, the nuclear repeating rifle"...

That is perhaps the worst ocean-front view on planet Earth.

MR T's Haircut said...

GBS,
NO IT ISNT... I LOVED THIS VIEW WHEN LEAVING THAT SHIT HOLE!!!

James said...

WHAT?

James said...

Achmed: I spy with my little eye something Blue.

Muhammed: I SAID IM NOT PLAYING ANYMORE!

Casey Tompkins said...

Davy Crocket 2.0, perhaps?

DeltaBravo said...

ahahahahahaha!  Awesome.  (laughs some more)

LT B said...

Onward Christian Soldiers would be good to sing as well

Steve said...

I was thinking the helicopter assault scene from Apocalypse Now.

LT Rusty said...

Like James said: WHAT?!

An Iranian XO reminds all hands that the PFA course is to the *end* of the breakwater road and back. Anyone turning around at the dogleg, like last cycle, will fail (to survive).
