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.
