Conjecture. These pics were taken by the US PR people. Don’t think they would care one bit about MARCOs wanting to be low profile

And let’s not pretend like we don’t see MARCOs regularly in public displays and they almost never bother to cover their faces/identities. They aren’t this ultra covert tier 1 unit that cares about OpSec

Simplest answer is MARCOs didn’t want to take part in some Ops or didn’t have the resources to do so.
Also, There are literally hundreds of pictures and videos yet to be released
Only Some 40-50 odd pics were released in October, it wouldn't be a stretch to say Indian Navy didn't want it to be going out with the first wave of Media release

Dude glocks wont go off like that. It has a two trigger system. Much safer than the thing in 9mm Browning.. In training you wont be having holsters, then u are taught to tuck the pistol in right hip and draw when called up. It wont discharge.
Dude glock do not have a "two trigger" system, its called a passive safety meant to make the glock drop safe. If there is a foreign object in the trigger it will fire.

Nope. Only partially true. If there is only a slight pressure and not full squeeze of both triggers the gun wont fire.
The presence of foreign object will result in fire if that foreign objects pressure is enough to fully squeeze the socalled passive trigger system.In real life situations while the glock is tucked into the right side of your jeans chances of such accidents is minimal.
Holsters are made for a purpose. Yes. But in a covert work especially when yiu are in plain clothes, holsters wont be a practical thing, also tucking pistols into shoes and all those things arr comfortable only in movies. In real life you are taught to tuck the pistol into right side of waist under tge shirt and i had never heard of any accidental firing in doing so.

This might have been true 30 years ago but you can get low-vis EDC holsters easily nowadays, tucking a pistol into your waistband is not only stupid it's impractical.

And it's a fact that the Glock specifically is designed to be holstered at all times when not needed, the makers will tell you that.


Again, people need to stop making excuses for the indefensible, the waistband stuff is amateur and illiterate behaviour.

And low-vis EDC holsters are easily available to the soldiers here in India?

Buy them on amazon.com.
They’ll have to pay a ridiculous amount on customs duty (40-45% of its value for most goods), which becomes extremely unaffordable. I remember @AVINASH4061 sir saying on one of his podcasts that he was lucky his wife worked in Air India on flights to the US, so he was able to purchase his gear at reasonable prices(already out of reach for most jawans and leaving only officers who can afford it).
