Looks like Vietnam to me with all those flakvests(?).

Looks photoshopped.

It is Vietnam. Not sure where or when or who, but a great photo I stumbled upon a week or so ago. The shotgun appears to, and should be, a Mossberg 500.

  You sure about that?  Looks to have an exposed hammer.

That might just be a shadow in the grassy area behind the gun.

No, I'm not sure. That's why I took the trouble to use grammar that illustrated that fact. It would most probably be the Mossberg 500, as that was the standard shotgun of the US armed forces at the time. It also has a similar silhouette. A Winchester M1912 would not have been likely for line infantry units.

I'll buy that.  The barrel length beyond the magazine sorta rules out Ithaca as well.

I´ve stumbled upon an interesting Youtube channel  of a 22-year old guy from the USA who has spent some time in Libya, first as a medic and then, later on as a combatant. Equipped with a full HD camera he joined a group of rebels and filmed lots of interesting stuff, ranging from firefights, even more firefights, firefights in Sirte and other things. If you´ve got some time and if you´re interested in that whole conflict, check out his channel. He has uploaded around 240 videos and even though they alck a name, there are some interesting scenes. Unfortunately he seems to be mentally unstable. o0
And a pic of course:
And so he spoke, and so he spoke, that lord of Castamere,
But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,

He seems like a psychopathic adrenaline junkie, who goes to a warzone as a medic but then all the sudden decides to rambo the rest of the conflict?

Here's a few from a country thats doing off a lot better, Iraq.

Tolga, yeah, basically like this. I´ve also read somewhere that he´s schizophrenic and has not the healthiest mind. But his videos are interesting, nonetheless, because he´s giving us a good and intimate view on the Libyan rebels. Plus their marksmanship is more than hilarious. ^^

Anyway:

Libyan soldiers loyal to leader Muammar Gaddafi are seen in the city of Gueriane, 180km north of Tripoli, April 20, 2011.

Hmm, I don't like much helicopters that aren't USA/USMC, but these things look awesome.  ;D
