It's a mag holder. It sits in the magwell. This way a soldier can carry his rifle unloaded but have a mag at the ready.

Blow up of her ****...

Calling the folks idiots or not seeing what they see is no prob, but if you meant to reference a body part of the Virgin Mary in your "Blow up of her ****..." remark, that's going to offend alot of people. Now if you just meant to say that the markings on the wall look like a "****," well that's okay.

Someone should make a collage of all the different uniforms the Iraqi defense forces went through. I remember they started with 6-color desert BDU and simple beige cover for helmet. Then they just started painting their helmets black. Recently I've seen them in some kind of new desert pattern. And now you see them in their own moderate BDU and painted helmet camo. Very interesting.

That's either a sawn-off CAR15 or a Colt Commando. Which means he's either an SF or Magav in OD (which is unusual).

Dont armour crews and some rear echelon troops tend to use the sawn-off versions as well?
Look at the strap, its just a rope. i highly doubt SF would use a rope.

Thats pretty sweet. BTW, I notice that almost all the M4's now are equipted with both a flash light, and an IR illuminator/aiming laser. I've never seen the buttons for these in any of the pics, I imagine they'd be mounted somewhere near the trigger, or the peg (forward hand hold).

EvanLloyd - the gun is short-barrell sawn-off, used by SF. the rope makes me think it's a reserve-duty SF.

very interesting find - the dimentions and shape remind of russian KHAB/KRAB chemical bombs (emtpy, of course!), although the tail is unlike the one used in those bombs and more like a GP bomb tail.
