My friend Chase of Zenith introduced me to Charles, of Battle Brothers Trading, at the last NRA show. Charles has been going to Iraq with his business partner to help out ISOF and Pershmerga however they can. On occasion they fight bad guys.

You may have come across Charles from the “Make Mosul Great Again” patches that he had made just outside of Mosul. There was an article on Solider Systems Daily about it.



Well his friend took these gorgeous photos and Charles shared them with me. They are of people and guns that they have come across while volunteering their time and own money into helping the good guys.

The top photo is of a G3 with Feroz z-51 Zeiss Electro Night Vision scope.

H&K G36

According to Charles, this is a General and yes, he has a G36 with a flashlight attached to his rhino NVG mount.

    Never here of ‘Green Zone’ shootings in Iraq, but Afghanistan seems to be a whole different story.

      I had some Iraqi Army turd rack his AK at me while I was on post before. We caught some Iraqi Army that was deployed with us calling in mortars strikes on us from the roof of our base as well. I wouldn’t trust any of them to tell me the expiration date on my milk.

        If youre drinking milk in Iraq dont worry, its already expired.

          Wait, I thought that was yogurt…

      • Requiescat in pace

        The guys did it by purpose or by stupidity?

  • Vhyrus

    If that guy wasn’t a general I would come up behind him and flip that flashlight into his eye. Every. Freaking. Night.

    Oh who am I kidding, I’d do it anyway.

      At night it must be like a Stalker game for their enemies. Yell Cheeki Breeki and aim for the light.

  • Phillip Cooper

    Don’t know that I’d call them “gorgeous” pics. Interesting, sure. But that’s about it.

  • SP mclaughlin

    “Make Mosul Great Again”
    -slogan of the alt-Baath party.

    • Jojne Zimmermann

      Except most of the Alt-Baathists are known for some time as Islamic State. Which makes Shia PMUs liberals, I guess. What a trip…

    > while volunteering their time and own money into helping the good guys.

    So they’re armed, or they’re not armed, or what?

    • Nicholas C

      They procure weapons while they are there.

        So does the CIA fund these guys bidness or what?

        • Nicholas C

          Nah. It is all their own money.

  • Ευστάθιος Παλαιολόγος

    Looks like M-19 60mm mortars on that last photo


  • .45

    Is that a scope on your rifle or are you just happy to see me?

  • Peter Nissen

    Love the zip ties on the M99B. Rock Solid mounting systems by the Zijiang Machinery Company!!!!

    • neckbone

      I think your confusing the scope lens covers that are hanging down for a zip tie.
