Whoooaaa, a M1919A6. My buddy took a picture of one he ran across in Iraq, but it was just on display. How the hell does he get ammo for that thing? Canvas belts?

These pics are pretty awesome. I'm liking the Sterling and the Beretta M12.

There's some interesting stuff in these pics. I always think it's interesting when you can look at the guns being used in a particular conflict zone, and you can tell a lot about that country's history (i.e. presence of Italian-made guns is a reminder of colonial days).

I might be wrong, but is that even a real Beretta? I've seen blank-firing replicas which have that same finish (blued with gold controls). It could also be a regionally-produced copy, but not sure.

I wouldn't go to say that those weapons are useless. "ancient", yeah but a gun is a gun and if it shoots bullets and won't blow up in my face, I'll take it...unless it's like an old musket.
