Wow.. These guys look like they are from the future with those googles.

Lets see… HK G36C rifles, handguns likely Glocks or HKs in the drop leg holster by the looks of it, Optics.. Aimpoint comp M4 with the 3x magnifier.  Elbow pads, but no kneepads.

The best part is that the guy right in front obviously didn’t get the memo about putting your pant stirrups inside your shoe not outside, so he managed to break one of his :(

pronounciation

For many of us, our window to the world of guns is books, magazines, and the internet. Unfortunately, when you see a word or a name that you aren’t familiar with, you tend to do what you learned to do in school, sound it out in your head. This has lead to a plethora of often mispronounced words and names in the firearms community, and it makes us all look like rubes.

My personal opinion on pronunciation is that in order to not look like a jackass, you should be sticking with the pronunciation that is local to where you are.  Asking to see the “Heckler and Coke USP” at a most gun shops in the US is likely to get you into an argument about how it’s “KOTCH” or “KAAATCH” not Coke.  In the end you will likely walk away frustrated and embarrassed.

Looks like they must have hired HK’s marketing guy for this picture:

Problems:

1) Guy in front has his rifle scope on backwards
2) Guy in front has his left arm through the loop in the sling
3) Guy in rear has his sling on in a pretty akward manner considering he’s planning on shooting his sidearm with his right hand

All jokes aside, the clothing acually does look pretty nice.  You can check it out at their website – HERE
