Now that looks like a Russian Sniper rifle to me? What's the score with that likely to be then?

Apologies if it's been asked before.
I met a bloke who seriously advocated switching to the enemy's weapons system, and fighting their way up the supply chain...
Doubt it's reached quite that level of desperation out in Kabul though...

was in kabul till feb this year 4 lancs replaced us ( 6scots ) it was`nt that boring maybe not as lively as helmond but the threat of ied`s is really high so every time your on the ground it pays to stay awake

Of course , didn't mean any offence by it.

My comment was more about the daily routine of marshaling traffic and stagging on rather than any risk factor. I wasn't knocking the lads in any way.

When the highlight is foot patrols, you know your tour is sh*t. Mind you, doing much the same job in Helmand at present, I'd say we're no better off. A TA FP tour is always going to be w*nk.
