Hi there, I found this one in an airsoft site (yeah, that sport that web browser commandos hate).

Some are really curious, give it a try.

Haha, very interesting. These (I think) are some of the actual military signals (note RSV2 for some as well)

SIGNAL

Fist raised by head

MEANS

Hold position

SIGNAL

Index and middle finger together rotated next to head vertically

MEANS

Follow me/rally

SIGNAL

Entire hand with fingers together points at position

MEANS

Advance/go there

SIGNAL

Open hand raised vertically next to head

MEANS

Hold fire

Could be wrong, but I think these are correct.

I think this is one is hold position, then if the fist is closed it means go to cover

Who really cares what the actual meaning is of all these handsignals! Most of the 'alternative' meanings are way more funny. :P

Want to know a secret? While there are common hand signals, a lot of them depend on your unit.

Oh, and hooray airsoft!

I have such pic Alex, really useful, but I still prefer the humorous one :P

"This is my stop" is simply brilliant.

I would think that the "Hell be out in a minute" signal looks more like the "You're a w*a*n*k*e*r" signal! :P
