Interesting Photos from the Rio

    Many readers kindly sent in photos from the on-going police/military operations in the Rio slums. These two photos in particular caught my eye.

    This police officer is uses a 90 degree mounted EOTech. I have seen small red dot sights mounted on the side of competition rifles, but never before a large EOTech mounted like this in the field.

    Thanks to William for the link.

    This photo shows a tacti-cool (note forgrip) Madsen machine gun. Despite officially being retired in 2008, it looks like at least one is still in service with the Brazilian police.

    Many thanks to Mark for the image.
