AK-47 Slingshot

Looks like he is getting ready to fire a hand grenade:

I dub the system “BUGS” – BackUp Grenade Slingshot.

I wonder what the story behind the picture is? Doesn’t seem sophisticated enough to be Russian… probably some Taliban jury rigging.

The desk seems to be secured to the floor, as if it’s in a ship’s cabin. Possibly a captured pirate’s AK?

That’s not secured to the floor, it’s an example of Southern Engineering desk leveling.

Just blocks to raise the desk up. Us tall people do it often.

I’d say it’s most likely a Taliban capture, the setting certainly looks dusty enough.

I think we may be reading to much into it. It’s probably just something the guy did for a funny joke/picture.
