In jest, I know. :LOL: As it turns out, the SWAT teams and military are very much armed. That said, I understand that for the ceremonial guard (i.e. red uniforms and bear skin hats, etc.), the rifle they're carrying is not loaded. See below:



Can anyone confirm the identity of the rifle? I believe it is an SA80 variant but what threw me was that the optic is covered so I couldn't see it. Apparently, when the "show" guard is on., they do carry it like this but it's unloaded and has the covered optic. It would also appear that the hand guard is also covered, perhaps since it would rub against the soldiers' neck due to it being carried that way. If a "situation" developed, immediately the military guards with real loaded SA80's would appear magically.

Thanks much!
