82nd Airborne in Afghanistan
About 80 high resolution photos of the 82nd Airborne kicking ass in Afghanistan at theBrigade. (***Graphic: blood) There are about a half dozen photos of a Soldier carrying a suppressed Remington MSR with a Premier Reticles scope. While I think it would be fun to shoot that rifle, I don't think I would want to carry it. I've handled a suppressed one before, and it's a beast. There's also a M110 sniper rifle in there, and I can't help but to laugh at the massive Trijicon ACOG on top of a M240 machine gun, with a huge reflex sight mounted on top of that. It's like something from Doctor Seuss; the reflex is at least six inches above the bore, and closer to eight inches.
