Improvise…

A U.S Marine during a raid in Fallujah, Iraq back in 2004. According to what’s been said about these images is that the Marine’s issued M16A4 had malfunctioned and he resorted to using a battlefield pickup. Note that his rifle is still slung at his side.

It could also be said that he picked up the shorter, more compact PPSh-41 for the closer quarter’s environment, something the long M16 isn’t ideally suited for. Whatever the reason, it’s interesting to mention the historical comparison. The invading Nazis often used captured PPSh-41’s for the cramped urban combat in Stalingrad, ditching their unwieldy and slow firing Mausers.
