Where is zee magazine for Zee Masked Avenger's FN SCAR rifle?


I guess in disarmed Germany, when someone holding a gun says, "pew pew," the bad guys just fall down and die?

Peak Finance's picture

WOW great catch!

At first I thought it was one of those short like 5 round mags, thinking that's all the police are allowed to carry, but zoom it the mag is clearly not there.

Unless this is the special ed SWAT member, they let him out to play with the big boys today but he gets no ammo.

Why is zee German polize using a Belgium FNH rifle instead of a fine German H&K rifle?

Haus-Targaryen's picture

Same reason the Bundeswehr uses the Megane as its primary Dienstwagen, because "European Unity" and other such similar bullshit.

Heavily armed?  Fifty injured?


Conflicting reports said the shooter, who was found to be only armed with a blank-firing weapon, had either been shot dead by police or arrested after he barricaded himself inside.



Bastiat's picture

Maybe he was arrested, then shot dead, then re-equipped with something more serious than a starter's pistol.

Billy the Poet's picture

Somebody's trying to start something.

Another white gay Germanic male shooting?

This is getting stale.


Implied Violins's picture

Maybe, but not until Adam Lanza shot fifty people first.

Shadow1275's picture

A shame too, the G36c Is one of my favorite Assault Rifles. H & K make some Wunderbar firearms

Collectivism Killz's picture

Probably because the G36 has major issues right now. Though, I guess they could go with the 416

German cops/SWAT cannot be armed during false/flag trainings.  Only See Eye Aye Operation Gladio paramilitaries stooges for Satan can be armed.  Or paid killers like scmbag Lon Horuchi.


Save_America1st's picture

nice catch right there Hedgeless.  I guess he was too busy picking out the perfect camo Michael Meyers scary mask and forgot his ammo.

False Flag much???  hahaha

Hitlery_4_Dictator's picture

The NWO is picking up the pace, the economic collapse must be soon. Also, people are on to them.

Save_America1st's picture

Maybe he just hadn't loaded it yet and was getting sighted in?  Or maybe just has 1 round already chambered w/ out the mag?  But it sure looks odd, doesn't it? 

He must have some mags close by. 


FireBrander's picture

Flying/landing in a helicopter isn't a smooth ride; probably best to ammo up once on the ground...how embarassing if a round pops off in the copter, nailing the pilot in the head, sending the ship into the crowd below.

Citxmech's picture

I thought maybe he is a big lucha libre fan.

googlenerd's picture

One shot, one kill...this guy is good.

HowdyDoody's picture

He is even better than that - no shots, one kill.


Thom_333's picture

For those who have not practised it...it's really hard to shoot and hit from a moving helicopter. Harder than from a car. You get this moving 3-D thing.

fedupwhiteguy's picture

These guys don't seem to having any problem hitting their targets out of a helicopter.



BaBaBouy's picture

Ooops Shultze, I sink I forgots somesink ...

BandGap's picture

The top picture has the rifle angled towards the viewer making it look like there is no, or a short, magazine. The camo helps too.

Is that a typical rifle for a sniper in a helicopter? The son of a friend of mine was a sniper in Afghanistan and he specialized in shooting from helicopters. He swears by a .308.


hedgeless_horseman's picture


SCAR heavy is .308 and favored by many as a Special Purpose Rifle for just this type of situation.

There is no 5 round mag, or any mag, in that rifle.

BandGap's picture

Yep, I agree after looking at his finger placement in the pic. Maybe it's protocol not to ammo up until you get close to the action. Who knows what passes for normal in bizarro world these days.

Didn't know a SCAR was a .308. Good caliber for this use.

Blackfox's picture

In the British army we had to point our rifles at the floor of the helicopter in case we 'let one off by mistake' thus preventing putting a bullet through said helicopters engine and roters - yes maybe the German police do have drills for no live ammo on board, maybe they don't.

flyingpigg's picture

Yes, the SCAR with .308 has good accuracy, nice firepower and is short enough to handle in urban environment.

Similar to the old fashioned Steyr SSG69 PIV (that one has bolt action instead of the semi-automatic SCAR).  

Gun porn bitchez!

stocker84's picture

That is a misleading stock photo. Use google image to search for it.

Results going back to May 2016 at least.

Don't believe everything you see.

HowdyDoody's picture

He is even clearer in photo 10 - on the ground and no magazine.

Photo 14 is even better - US-syle lardasses on patrol. Try not to fall over laughing.


Road Hazard's picture

To me, it clearly looks like that mag well is E_M_P_T_Y. I did your Google search and saw LOTS of SCARs with magazines and a few with what looked like 5 round mags? (Barely sticking out the bottom.) But the mag well of the gun that Jason Voorhees is holding, ......(to me and my eyes) empty as can be. What kind of an operator goes into a REAL, active shooter situation with no mag inserted or at MOST, a 5 round mag?! Another false flag.

On a side note, I bet this guy spends every second of his down time customizing his Call of Duty avatar. He looks like a buffoon in his little costume.
