    Very interesting observation Fahim, I have this habit you can say from very young age, staring at the weapons LEO's or guards are carrying and questioning about.
    After joining PG this habit grew chronic, now beside evaluating the side arms I usauly have argument with the guards standing outside the banks or other institutions on the casual/unsafe way they carry their weapons :)
    Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.

    Same here, trying to catch a glimpse of the guy's weapons, and then attempting to identify it... I do the same

    Habbit grew after PG.Daily i am checking the condition of AK's of Police.Most of the time find them chambered and unlocked!
    Once stared the gun of a ASF official.Have inquired about the pump actions of Bank guards and gave them some handy tips :)
    @rizhsu be careful,the way you stare the guns/guards,can be dangerous.

    I thought its not polite to check out other people's equipment, if u know what i mean ;)

    Regards.

    p.s. well if u have check (try to resist the temptation as much as u can first) then atleast make sure that u do it discreetly and without them knowing about it. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    wait a second! are we talking about firearms? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Brother, we are talking precisely about SIDEARM not the one you are afraid to check out (other people's) ;)

    Haha what a wonderful thread. I too have the same disease. Wherever I see a firearm, my natural bino's (eyes) start zooming in and out. :D

    The most common weapons you can spot in your daily life are the weapons carried by security guards. If they have a sidearms, it's always a TT. If it's a pump action, it's always a pistol grip desi shotgun.

    However, lately, the DHA security's been carrying some new 12 gauge with a butt, in two tone colour. Silver and black. Goes well with their uniform. ;)

    Unfortunately, because of our "Halaat" in Pakistan, one can see Police, Elite Police and Army personnel almost everywhere. :( As Much as I get a rush of blood watching our protectors with their weapons, I always wish that they do not have to stand all day long for the sake of providing security to our people day and night. Kaash halaat wapis sai acha ho jain takay zindagi ka fazul mein zya na ho. :(

    Ameen.
