  1. FAL’s, red cyan peppers and a promotion(diaper-pinned stripes) all in one picture!

    On another note, what’s with wrapping the sling round the front sight post?

      Yea good question about the sling on the front sight… They are doing that in over half the pictures. Maybe they are just laying down suppressive fire and figure they don’t need to aim. hhaha

  2. I would have thought that a country as up-and-coming as India would have started to standardize a while ago…

    I think the cops were carrying the FN variants, and military the AK some of those were Arsenal AKs.

    Look at picture 59, I find that very telling they are not saying a theme of freedom from India, not even India out of Kashmir. No their main focus is “Crush India.”

    “Kashmir” by Led Zeppelin is actually about a region in Morocco but named after the region in the Central Asia/Indian subcontinent.

    Kind of a like a song about the lights of Times Square in New York City named “Amazon River Delta.”

    In other news, I posit the theory that Kalashnikovs spontaneously generate wherever (yearly per capita income < $2,000 USD) AND (native skin color = darker than housing development beige). The Indians and Iranians had plenty of superior FALs and G3s respectively and still tons of AKs appeared…
