Thats a glock in his waist band. It does not have a manual safety. Holsters are used for a reason.
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.

Why won’t you have a holster? Glocks are literally designed to be holstered at all times- that’s why theh don’t have an external safety.

let’s stop making excuses for incompetence and or negligence.

Everyone arrived on time, that marcos det most probably don't want too many pics of them on the internet
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.

which resource you are talking about?
Also most of the pics i have seen they do cover their faces.
Might not be a low profile thing could be another reason but the resources reason seems total BS.

The SOF phase of Malabar was conducted in 3 phases,
1) VBSS, the pics in which they board a merchant ship using a MH60, and a different scenario which was done in an Offshore Oil rig boarded using RHIBs, simulated offcourse

2) Urban Combat Training, the first decent pic of Marcos with PVS-31 came from this, Close quarter combat, Combat in Restricted spaces

3) EOD(explosive ordnance disposal), Survival and emergency medicine

AFAIK, Marcos participated in all of them, only place we don't have picture of Marcos is not in VBSS or urban combat, but the third phase,
Even then, I think these pictures is from there only

First of which is clearly Marcos
Also, I don't think Marcos are ill equipped to handle EOD, Survival and Medical shiiet

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 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.
