Private Asfanjani credits the purchase of a new wife for the wonderful condition: “She carries it inside her dress all year to protect it from the elements, so it is ready for the annual competition”. Reply CUJO THE DOG OF WAR says: June 10, 2011 at 16:16 I found the locals to be very hospitable. As the photo above shows, I was offered the choice of two melons to shoot, and a complimentary AK 47. Reply Ralph says: June 10, 2011 at 16:25 It started out as a pimple on my earlobe. Reply New2this says: June 10, 2011 at 17:12 Said the melon. Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:18 “What goiter?” Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:20 “Me? I’m on my way to the range for our annual qualification. We have to bring our own targets though.” Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:22 “The AK is our regular weapon. This is what we carry if we have to go non-lethal.” Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:23 “Hey! Can anybody tell me where I can get a MOLLE pouch for this?” Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:26 “We have to carry this around all day as a decoy head for protection against Taliban snipers. Works only on average half the time though.” Reply Alex says: June 10, 2011 at 17:30 I have one more about a lonely soldier but that might not be as appropriate here.

Reply Sam Wright says: June 10, 2011 at 20:55 I hope no one starts shooting, I might drop my melon. Reply Jay W. says: June 10, 2011 at 21:09 Anyone want to swap me another banana clip for my melon?
