Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Pinched from some american gun nut forum. :D

    sorry if its been posted before

    I'm liking life jacket man, and Mr feather Duster

    Images from the battle for Monrovia, Liberia, where use of iron sights is known to be strictly prohibited. Also prohibited are aiming, assuming a supported firing stance, and any common practice of marksmanship whatsoever. Hip-Hop/Rapper/Gangsta shooting stances are mandatory, the "Glock Foh-Tay" hold being the most popular. lethality is acheived by subjecting the target to a wide swathe of area fire, simliar to unaimed indirect artillery, or scaring the enemy away with gesturing and aggressive hip-hop style dancing while firing. Points are awarded for artistic effort, style, fearsome facial expression/vocalizations and blue duct tape.

    Note perfectly executed flamboyant sideways-rifle "Glock Foh-Tay" running stance.

    Amazing height and style on this one. Sure to impress the judges!

    "Yo Yo YO, Fo' Shizzle"

    The "bring your buddy along" firing stance

    Firing from the hip while putting on the best "Game Face" and bellowing like an Ox - always sure to make your enemy skeedadle!

    The "Homeless street person" anti-aircraft firing position being executed with great precision!

    Here we have a classic! The "prone Warrior " firing position - too bad the magazine spring has blown out from the bottom of his beautifully blue-duct-tape-taped jungle magazine setup. :D

    Here we have Liberian militia demonstrating the "Soul Train" method of combat assault.

    The Nautical theme is ever popular, as seen by this militiaman wearing the stylish Kapok life jacket.
    Won't stop a bullet, but sure looks Boo-yaa!


    This pair is executing the difficult "Phat Bammer Swagger" shooting stance.

    The Phat "Batman Begins" RPG firing position is new but hot.

    While this appears to be a well-rehearsed combat assault maneuver, this militiaman is actually trying to keep birds from crapping on his car. Note the feather duster in the left hand for effect.

    This Militiaman executes the one handed high overhead blind shot. It is often used to indicate that "Da Brizzles over there".

    And last but not least, these two are showing the proper way to fire a support weapon using the non-aiming duck-walk method, keeping at least five feet of linked ammo strung out from the weapon at any given time! Note the suitably awe-struck onlookers!
  2. my god. how poor is our trng? there is soooooooooooooooooo much we could learn from these people!!
  3. Funny as You like! Nice One... :lol:
  4. ROTFLMAO about the chap with the life jacket...

    Still, Liberia is a fine example of how badly you can ruin a country even if you only hit with one round per mag. In a sort of brutal sense, it's just what the AK was designed for.
  5. Guy in the life jacket looks incredibly like a young lawrence fishburne...

    Got to admit, would be great to pitch them against some pimply little kids with BB guns and Mr T chains...
  6. The bust magazine picture is awesome - you can even see him starting to cock the weapon in a vain attempt to carry on firing. T w a t.

    Outstanding pictures overall but Uzi and feather duster gets my vote.
  7. I think an exchange program to their school of infantry is in order. Note did anybody see any wounded?
  8. For a venue closer to home, try Catford/Peckham/Lewisham.
  9. its funny only until you ralize these ******* wrecked there country and had links with the scum in serria leone the ones who like to disarm people :(
    although finding a roof top a gpmg and a ice box ala once a pilgrim would be an enjoyable and poductive way to spend a day :lol:
  10. I have not laughed so hard all day till i saw those pics.

    Sad to think, as pointed out above, some of these absolute loonies do go on to be cruel and swine like to their own civilian populations.

    But there are going to be fewer people to do the cruelty if they carry on the random wild shooting, the wearing a life jacket as opposed to a flack jacket and so on
  11. Makes you realise why people think they could get away with overthrowing a country with only a couple hundred well trained soldiers - mainly because if these guy are indicative of the calibre they could. That's if you don't f*ck it up by mentioning it down the pub beforehand of course.
  12. Just in case you've forgotten ;-)

    a. Your position and hold must be firm enough to support the weapon.

    b. The weapon must be pointed naturally at the target without undue physical effort.

    c. Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct.

    d. The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position.
  13. The photographs are probably posed for as there's a fella in the background with a camera, taking a photo. But LOL all the same, these people watch too much Rambo!
  14. Well, seeing as like over half of them are 'action' shots, with live rounds being fired, I don't think so. If the shots were 'posed', then surely the photographer would have been told to move.
  15. Congolese militia are the worst posers around. Pull out a camera and before you can remove the lens cover the horizon is totally obscured by dribbling mongs waving automatic weapons and RPGs in various heroic poses.

    Best had to be the mortar section in Liberia shown on Sky or BBC or some such channel. Bloke drops a round down the pipe of a badly rigged mortar and dives for cover in the road next to it. Mortar fires bomb and promptly collapses in a welter of base plate and supports next to prone operator.

    Oh, how we laughed....
