    I wonder why the bullets where fired from that angle? Maybe a sniper from a roof or execution?

    Most likely a sniper, or he had his helmet at a weird angle.

    I think ebay is more expensive! From what i have seen anyway, but was a while ago i was on ebay. Tradera is a good place for some iteems and is good to sell iteems on.
