    I finally got around to posting some pix that my cousin Gary sent home when he was over in Rota, Spain ('03) and Fallujah ('04 - '05).

    Here they are: http://mysite.verizon.net/dwarven1/Gary.htm

    And no, he didn't get to keep it. (you'll know what I mean when you see the last pic).

    Hey, I'm proud of my cuz... and his little brother, too. David is a Coastie who volunteered for duty in Iraq inspecting incoming shipping. don't have any pix from him, though.

    Both are back home. In fact, Gary just got back from Disney, staying at Shades of Green, of course!

    That's really cool. My brother in law's best friend was one of the first ones over. He's back and has some pictures of him sitting in Sadam's throne. And, he's got some soap dishes from the master bath.

    I still can't believe that that thing is gold plated.

    What is that shooting? 7.62x54? That's a long magizine.

    Pretty sure that's what a Dragunov takes. Never seen one IRL, myself.

    Yup, the Dragunov and the RomAK3 both take the 7.62x54R, same round as the Mosin Nagant.

    Took another look, and I do believe that is a RomAK3, also known as a Romanian Dragunov. Not a true Dragunov, since it's really a Kalashnikov design action, but still accurate enough.

    OK, I'll see what I can do. I hope that he has it in an electronic format.

    I just e-mailed to see if he does. If so, I'll post it.
