I make it 18 shots. 18 shots that weren't aimed at the civilians. Some brave guys behind it too.

Thank you Planeguy I didn't see this on Drudge as I have been busy today. No more weak French jokes. Let's see what the Foreign Legion can do to ISIS.

Whitecap if they set loose The Legion there is going to be some pain coming the way of ISIS. Those Legionaires are hard core badasses.

Fox News showed a French cop with a helmet that was badly shot up. I don't know if the officer wearing it was killed. The cop said the terrs were trying for head shots, as probably so were the police.

I have not seen any GIGN police. Either they're holding these elite anti-terrorist cops in reserve or the media hasn't shown any when I was watching.

I looked at the linked article above in ,The Daily Mail, and one cop had a Glock 19 in a vest holster. I suspect that these special cops have a selection of sidearms. A French member of another board said that Paris police who shoot well enough can ask to be supplied the pistol of choice within reason. He knows one carries a Colt .45 auto.

If it interests anyone, I was browsing the Net for something else and found pics of Lithuanian troops with M-16 rifles and M-1911A-1 Colt .45's. That's presumably how they re-equipped after the Russians left and they joined NATO.
