    Re: What the heck is this gun?

    It could be:

    Browning .22 Challenger
    Notice the handle is wooden as well. The barrel also seems similar,without the attached flashlight.

    or the Margolin Vostok MTs
    It's a Russian pistol, and Iran uses Russian weapons as well. Wooden handle, more possibility of them having their thumb on top of the gun then around the handle, like in the picture. Similar barrel and possible area for a flashlight.

    Ah, I see... Those are flashlights? I thought they were large smoothbore barrels!

    Another link to the pic we're discussing (just in case...):

    Pretty sure they're barrels, unless the bullets come out from the trigger, or the barrels like having glass on the front. =

    Re: What the heck is this gun?

    shot in the dark...small caliber auto w/lazer site or a sound suppressor (silencer) - ;-) flashlight thing.....tried zooming and enhansing the image but, still couldn't tell.

    Only other thing I can think of looking at what I assume is the skinny barrel is it may be a pellet-gun and the C02 cylinder/cylinder holder maybe the flashlight/shiny tube appearing thing

    Found it on a blog, but it was linked to yahoo news. It's one of a series of photos from an Iranian Women's Police graduation. There's a couple really funny photos I'll try to find again.


    Edit:
    here is a video of the fine festivities

    And some photos

    And then of course, the photochopped mishap

    Re: What the heck is this gun?

    I asked about what kind of gun that was in the photo over at AR15.com (a bunch of gun nuts...) and the only response indicated that he thought it was an air pistol.

    Here's the thread (Warning for language): http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=333302

    Well, the hearing protection won't be very effective over her "tactical burkha". She's not wearing eye protection. The cameraman is stupid to be standing in front of her pistol, even though her finger is well off the trigger. Hopefully it was done using a tripod and a delay....

    She's also not going to be shooting to the best of her ability with her weak eye squinted shut so hard... Those muscles will tire and when they do, it will affect her dominant eye a bit.

    That's what jumped out at me. Good points also Icecold.
