No need for cred thumping on either of our parts.

If he isn't part of the immediate scene, right by the boat covering the criminals, there is not immediate need for being in the high ready. I venture to say that the smuggler(s) are gone already & he is securing the perimiter of the scene.

With news crews, onlookers, etc at the ramp, he probably needs to be in view, as he is, showing domination without actively directing his muzzle towards any bystander. Low threat crowd control...

How many hours should he stand in the high ready? With no visible threat? I don't think his hand is in his pocket, I can see his thumb behind the handguards. If it is in the pocket, that's a little f'd up, but are we to believe that no professional has ever put his off hand in his pocket before? I know I've done it once or twice.

We can agree to disagree or discuss it via PM; it really doesn't have much bearing on the topic itself.

Isn't this why they invented pockets? I use mine all the time...

Were the threat still present, he'd have his raid gear on (Ballistic vest).

Rabbit: See, a lot of drug dealers use stickers to mark their products. Like a brand name.

Farva: See? Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

Captain O'Hagan: Shut up, Farva.
[to Rabbit]

Captain O'Hagan: Did that bag you pulled off these College kids have that sticker?

Rabbit: Uummm...
[secretly looks at a bag he hid in his pocket]

Rabbit: I don't believe it did.
