Exactly. A scoped, foregrip AK-74U? What could be better for CQB/room clearing than looking thru a scope! A RDS certainly, or other "both eyes open" sight. Reminds me of those idiotic shows with assault teams prepped with scoped weapons clearing houses.Hm, doesn't seem to add up. We've got a short-barrel AK of some sort I think (AK-74?). Plus a mounted light. So far so good. ....But then a big long-range scope to top it off??
Just to be particular, I'm pretty sure I see that finger "inside the trigger guard" in that photo. That's the technical violation. Anyone with any training doesn't do that with any gun, under any circumstances without intent to fire. "Near the trigger", but along side of the trigger guard (like Barney's doing) is quite acceptable. It's a 'minor' distinction, but a critical one. Both were merely 'photoshoots', but that doesn't matter. The rules still apply.Dude has his right hand near the trigger
I think you're missing my point, Byk. The 'safety' and its status is irrelevent to the training I'm referring to. It matters not whether or not the safety is engaged, whether or not the gun is 'loaded', or anything else. HTH.Above his trigger that may be the safety switch that might be on. Flick it up to switch it off. Pull it down to re-engage it.
