POTD: Kurdish Peshmerga With Crocheted Pride

Miles shared this photo of a Kurd Peshmerga posing with his under folding AK. The AK has been decorated with what looks like crocheted koozie covers. I assume someone from his family made them. They resemble the Kurdistan flag.

    TFB can you pleased make a post about the ungodly amount of 5.11(including fake) gear being used by Iraqi Forces today ?
    Nobody is talking about this, but it is so ironic that the kind of gear the US used to invade iraq is being used by Iraqis to liberate it.
    Just look at the images of the Iraqi SOF that liberated Mosul recently. It must be kinda weird to see them in such gear and applying tactics they learned from US troops, as a US serviceman that probably fought against some of these guys.

          Hmmm, due to NIUD’s gift for abrasive humor I’d assumed they were exposed to cisgendered-male privilege but perhaps I’m stereotyping

        With a name containing IUD, I’m not sure that’s a problem!

      But have you consulted with the blacks and gheys to get their opinion on them? We must keep the black and gheys in mind, of course.

    The green astroturf inside his bunker is really pimpin tho.

    • El Duderino

      That’s a par 5 putt-putt hole. Very technical.

      • sticky22

        Did you mean tactical?

        • Docduracoat

          All over the Middle East they bling out their AK’s
          In Afghanistan they love that green tape all over everything
          The Kurds have been fighting the good fight against Isis using old Soviet stuff captured on the battlefield
          Only recently has the U.S. supported them, turning them from a mountain militia group into light infantry with a fleet of humvees and truck mounted mortars

    Watch magpul come out with something like these and call them operator covers. Certain guys would go apeshiit over them.

    • El Duderino

      Magnetically attached mag cover with a tensioned lanyard that brings it right back to your vest when you hit the mag release.

      *mic drop*

      • Michael Rice

        That…actually sounds cool. Might get a bit complicated if you’ve got lanyards for each mag though.

          LOL search the internet, someone wants to take your money.

          He is describing a real product.

            I’m sure there are, and I’m sure there is. BUT, I don’t have any money to take, so I win, Internet Money Wanters.

      When Kalik knits you a cover for your handguard, you put it on your handguard. When your comrades are laughing at you because of your handguard cozy, you threaten to tell their Kalik, and they stop laughing.

  • wetcorps

    The comfiest AK. I like it.

  • insertjjs

    His Nana is very supportive

  • RUR5A

    Make them black and call them TACTICAL OPERATOR COVERS and you can sell them at scalper’s prices

  • john huscio

    Mag koozies…..How very “wisconsin”

  • bthomas

    Can’t see a problem with it. The dog their rifles up with all sorts of really weird stuff. Not my preference. But, he’s the man carrying the rifle in doing the fighting.

  • LetsTryLibertyAgain

    These AK koozies are like Jayne Cobb’s hat that his mother made for him. A man walks down the street with an AK wearing a forend koozie like that, and everyone knows he’s not afraid of anything.

    Damn straight.
