Found this gem on Gearwhores Anonymous. It is a photo of some Dutch Swat and DSI officers. The guy in the middle looks like he was in the middle of a GQ magazine photoshoot when feces hit the fan. While the other two guys are dressed to the nines. Not sure why they need Pvs-31 NODs in day time but sure why not, rock ’em if you got ’em. The officer on the right is sporting an SBR rocking a Rheinmetall LLM01 weapon light/laser. He has a Glock and a shotgun. He’s ready for 3 gun lol. The other DSI officer has his Glock on his chest because the MP7 on his thigh holster.  Meanwhile he is cradling his H&K G28 suppressed rifle.

    Now if the Dutch were as concerned about their nation and culture as their GQ looks, they might not be speaking Arabic. I know, guns not politics. I beg forgiveness already.

    • JPD

            More like antiDutch. They either are Dutch hating imigrants or self hating traitors. They display it with typical ignorance. They are the type who would have fled to Soviets during WWII to attempt regime change after war into socialisms. They are the self described enlightened holier than you type. They are the type to make excuse for Moroccans who rob them or rape their wife or daughter. They want to compete with Sweden form he coveted title of Rape Capital of Europe, and eventually the world so long it is the “racist cheese head natives” that are the victim

          • iksnilol

            Again, Sweden doesn’t have much rape as much as it does a wide definition of rape (one of the few countries to recognize male rape) and people aren’t afraid to report rapes.

            Problem with foreigners in Sweden is all the grenade attacks, not the rapes.

          • joe tusgadaro

        Find it on a map?

        Hell, I’ve BEEN THERE.

        Amsterdam is an awesome city, and as soon as Europe as a whole wakes up to their current problems I’ll be looking for work there. I’d love to live there for a while even with your awful gun laws.

        But while I was there I had one of your countrymen bracing me about how awful the US health care system was. Which is *exactly* the same thing you’re complaining about with Ratcraft. Someone who knows everything about a subject through the media and takes it for a given.

        • 8166PC1

          I’d love to live in the USA for a while even with your awful gun deaths.

          • BillyOblivion

            Are you trying to prove my point?

            When I was interviewing for jobs over there I investigated the gun laws. They’re worse than Australia. I mean, this *IS* a firearm website, and most of us here are *at least* recreational shooters. It’s what we do for fun, in addition to having to shoot our way in and out of the office every day, what with all the drug dealers, ISIS types, and whatnot.

          • FarmerB

            I shoot with the Dutch all the time. Their guns laws are NOT worse than Australia. At least you can have a semi-auto.

          • BillyOblivion

            When I was looking into it I was primarily focused on pistol laws, and they were worse than what I had to deal with in the Northern Territory of Australia. Maybe not a lot worse, but it was annoying.

            It may not be as bad for rifles.

          • FarmerB

            Probably, I was talking more about rifles. Still, I wouldn’t want to deal with their laws at all.

          • BillyOblivion

            Their being AU, NL or either?

          • FarmerB

            NL. I’m done with Aussie laws.

          • john huscio

            People die everyday, are we supposed to mourn them all?

          • 8166PC1

            It’s not about mourning necessarily it’s about realizing that there is a problem.

          • Swarf

            Get better at math. Every unnecessary death is a tragedy of sorts, but statistically speaking, there really isn’t a problem.

            At least not with guns. Rag on us for preventable heart disease. Or texting while driving.

          • 8166PC1

            30,000 gun deaths a year is not insignificant.

          • Swarf

            That very popular number includes suicides, so it’s skewed. To put it politely.

            That is still less than .01% of the population of the country.

            There are also no numbers (that I know of) on how often a gun has stopped a death from occurring, or more deaths. As in interrupted crimes of all stripes.

          • 8166PC1

            so suicides don’t matter?

          • Swarf

            Yeah, very original.

            As a measure of “gun violence”, no they don’t. Suicide is a voluntary act.

            But you’re getting distracted. What country are you from? How many people does it have?

            The US has around 322,000,000 people. Even using your incorrect number of 30,000, that is .0093% of the population.

            About 37,000 people die in automobile accidents in the US annually.

            About 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes in the US annually.

            About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the US annually, and, according to the CDC, roughly 200,000 of those are preventable.

            Whatever country you live in, that you want to move here from, I guarantee you there is a statistic that shows that .0093% of the population managed to off themselves in tragic yet preventable ways.

            30,000 lives lost is a horrendous thing, and if one of them were someone close to me you can be sure that I would feel the loss as deeply as any other loving, caring human being. But…

            30,000 as a part of a statistical whole within the context of all of the rest of the numbers I’ve just laid out, and as a means to an end which is curtailing a right specifically enumerated in the governing document of my country? Nope. They don’t.

          • raz-0

            suicides are fungible. There are multiple studies noting that accessibility or lack of firearms really doesn’t impact the suicide rates. Look at Japan or Sweden. We just slightly edge out France by WHO numbers. From other stats gathering organizations, even more first world, relatively high standard of living countries have worse rates than us.

          • 8166PC1

            You’re dead wrong. “In general, the findings of the study are consistent with the proposition that household gun ownership and keeping guns in the home that are loaded, and especially loaded guns that are unlocked, are significant contributors to the U.S. suicide rates at the state level,” explained Kposowa. https://ucrtoday.ucr.edu/36376

          • raz-0

            So a study that starts with an assertion mot backed by historic trends in who stats. Which was funded by the Brady campaign, and draws statistical conclusions on situations not in their daya sources nor ANY data sources.

          • 8166PC1

            Where does it say it was funded by the Brady Campaign?

          • 8166PC1

            I couldn’t find the word Brady anywhere on that page

          • Scott P

            Apparently not to you all since Japan and South Korea have higher suicide rates yet with complete gun bans so having access to guns aren’t the problem.

            I see no international moral outrage against them because “guns” aren’t involved so it is okay!

            Hypocrite, much?

          • john huscio

            Compared to deaths from preventable illness or even medical malpractice, it is. Doctors kill more people than guns, maybe it’s time we did something about that…..

          • Bill

            In defense of doctors, the average American doesn’t give them much good raw material to work with.

            I haven’t had a Big Mac since November 2015 and cut my sugar intake by 75%. As a cop, I allow myself one donut a month. Our inability to eat smart and exercise is just stupid.

          • 8166PC1

            But I’m not talking about doctors I’m talking about guns

          • Dan

            Because gun deaths happen everywhere? I bet you and i have had the same amount of gun deaths in our communities. The only difference most of the people that live in mine own guns.

          • 8166PC1

            People die by guns in every country, but the difference is that a lot more die in the USA than other countries.

          • pun&gun

            And yet our murder rate isn’t particularly noteworthy. It’s not that we have a “gun problem” causing a higher murder rate, it’s that we have a pretty normal murder rate and firearms are more commonly used. Is 80% stabbed and 20% shot somehow morally superior to 20% shot and 80% stabbed?

          • Scott P

            “Is 80% stabbed and 20% shot somehow morally superior to 20% shot and 80% stabbed?”

            To the Europeons and others worldwide, apparently it is.

            Talk about messed up priorities, false moral outrage, and ignorance in general that they love to heap on America while ignoring their own.

            Foreigners are the biggest hypocrites I ever met but it is a sport for them.

        • int19h

          How do you know he knows it from the media, and not, say, because he looked it up and read the umpteen dozen studies with numbers, charts etc, that clearly show how awful the US health care system really is, compared to literally every First World country out there?

          • Scott P

            Only because we subsidize their defense budgets.

            If they had to start paying their own way they would start singing a different tune.

          • raz-0

            Expensive yes. Awful no.

          • Tom Currie

            Do you have any clue what the word “literally” means? Apparently not. If you want to see WORSE health care than that available to the “average citizen” in the US, simply visit any of those “First World” countries that have “free” health care — such as Canada, or even a system like that in the UK.

          • int19h

            Yes, I do have a clue. You see, I lived in New Zealand and Canada. And I have friends and relatives who live in Germany. So I had a chance to compare.

        • iksnilol

          The US healthcare system is horrible.

          You should not get a 100k USD bill for being bitten by a venomous snake (that I’ve seen).

          • BillyOblivion

            How much time have you actually spent in the US learning about our system, and how much are you learning from media organizations that have an agenda to push?

            I’ve actually read about how it works from the CDC and WHO.

            And yes, it is a retarded system. You don’t need an agenda to push to see that.

      • iksnilol

        I like black, I wear black. Besides, only alternative option for holsters and stuff is usually that desert color (which sticks out like a bearing beam jammed in your eye) or camo patterns (which I find cringy). Sure, I can get OD green which if it matches my outdoors jacket I really like. But then the issue comes from the fact that my outdoors jacket I wear only half the year (otherwise it’s winter coat).

    Back around 1970, 60 Minutes did a segment about the Dutch Army which was in pretty bad shape, at least by US standards. They looked like hippies playing at being soldiers, parading out of step to Laurel & Hardy theme music. Allegedly, they met all NATO qualifications. I guess that things have changed.

    I was under the impression that drop-leg holsters were really only used by tacticool mall cop wannabes. Am I incorrect in that vague stereotype?
