If that one is difficult, and it may be for non-firearm people....try this one:



Bonus points if you can name the person pictured.   ;)

I've got no clue...I thought maybe something to do with improper flying of the flag but I read the code and can't see any real violation.  If it's something wrong with his weapon, I'm not familiar with that particular one to know if something's not right on it.

I can't see where the sling would be attached on the front and it looks like it's slung but without being familiar with that weapon I have no idea.

Pure guesswork on my part:
- Safety catch looks as though its on OK.
- I'm not positive that a magazine is seated.  Looks as though he might be holding a mag in his left hand.
- No idea about optics, so I'm hoping the lens caps are off.

Is there a rear sight mounted?  There is a lumpen shape where the rear-sight should be, but I've been thinking that was his hand.  Front sight on, but no rear sight?

The sight is mounted backwards.   There is no way to use it.

 From what I can see, the lens caps are definitely not off.  Actually, a common mistake to make, but potentially very costly.  I'll admit that I've done it a few times meself.

Prof you have good eyes because I still can't see it. what dept. is that officer from ? where is that ?

That is as bad as here after 9/11 they closed down Ft. Meade and had Soldiers posted at all the entrances with M16's. The problem was all there guns were empty as they were forbidden to place a loaded magazine in the weapon and they only had 5 rounds a piece.

We had a similar incident in the Legion in Djibouti with one of the locals during sniper training.  Ten guys were on the berm with targets 500 yds away.  The Legion SOP is that you number off from one to ten informing the range master that you have the target in sight and are ready to engage.  Once everyone does he gives the command to fire. 

They got to number ten - a local - and he claimed he couldn't see the target.  The Yugoslavian Adj screamed at him asking how the hell could he not see it.  Finally, in desperation, he yanks the Djiboutian out the way and takes over his weapon...you guessed it, scope mounted backwards. :o :o :o

Hello.  I believe that the fellow looking down the barrel of his M16 is Albert Gore.

Hello.  Well, thanks, but I just remembered the picture from when I'd seen it before, was asked the same question, and didn't know the answer.

Best.

PS:  Thumbs up on the ND.

My secretary came in the office yesterday (that's another story) and said that she had a bad night.  A friends husband tried to committ suicide and shot himself in the face THREE TIMES.     

I asked how and where....   Once in the right cheek, once in the left cheek and once in the center of the forehead.

He's surviving.   He destroyed both of his own eyes and took off half of one of his ears with a .22 pistol.

I think I would have stopped after the first time.   ::)
