    nice grip on the rifles, good to see they keep an eye on newest shooting techniques! (however, I still love my grip pod even if I can´t reach exactly the same palm position with that)

    So I guess the Rangers are using Glocks now too.

    How long before they replace the M9 in general, if this is any indication?

    Just an FYI, it's not exactly a new technique, it's been around for a while.

    Is that a PNVG battery Pack? Looks like it to me, or am I just not educated enough on NVG's?

    The M9 is not going anywhere. Big Army isn't switching, we are still issued them in Army SF (save for a very select few), and there is no mention of a replacement on the horizon.

    I think it's a more generic counterweight holder.

    I have no doubt that when I get ready to retire in 11+ years, I'll still be carrying an M9 to the range.
