Me as well:
I guess I got 4 wrong, I'm a Marine, got back from Afghan last November, so I guess I kinda cheated. I looked at the small things, the Face Plate on
their Kevlars for night vision, none of the 'Cops' had them.
I also think the test 'cheated' on some of those pictures. Such as #7. I won't swear to it, but that can't be a US 'Cop' There is far more a
distinct difference between US Military and Cops than there are in say Israel for example. Even US Swat is easy to tell apart from Military.
#9 you can see his Police Badge on his shoulder, plus He's in the prone using Iron Sights on an MP5, LOL. How far away do you plan on shooting a 9mm
pistol cartridge to lay in the prone for it?
I would also have to strongly protest #11, Those are some fancy rifles they are sighting in on, and quite obviously US Army Digital Cammies. I'd like
to see where the creator of that quiz got that picture from.
Also #12. Again, I would have to strongly protest where he got that picture he took.
He is obviously in a Turret Gun with a fuc*ing M60, And that #ing Rocket Launcher (At-4? I'm embarrassed to be second guessing myself, though I am
not a grunt
) I'm pretty sure Cops, State Police or Swat don't use that #, way to much potential for collateral damage. Again, I'd like to see
where the author of that quiz got his pictures.
#13. I suppose this is the best contest. He looked to be sporting a standard issue ACOG, Army field cammies, his pack.
Here are a few of the main differences I noticed.
None of the cop pictures had groin protector's on their Flak's, In garrison I don't wear that sh*t, but on deployment you can be damn sure I wore
it, I like my genitals thankyouverymuch.
Kevlar covers, majority of cop's didn't have them either. Nor base plates on the front, like picture #18 for NVG mount.
On all the pictures with Marines it was quite obvious. Our ballistic glasses like pic #3, standard issue, distinct Digital Cammie pattern.
Another thing was the Day Packs, some of those pictures show 'Soldiers' with their daypacks. We have to carry our # with us when we go out.
My 2 cents
