Personal protection......ha custom wheel gun. Made to order, can be loaded with just knock down get attention rounds, or make a hole the size of a fist through a door round.

Best of both worlds...S&W 686 full lug in .44 mag, along with Marlin 1895 in .44 mag and of course load you own.
629 Classic maybe? Too many numbers to remember.

I prefer the AR. I love my 10.5" AR15.



However since there are a lot of AKs out there, I train with it as well.

YMMV.

Jericho anybody?



But seriously the best plinker IMO is the Ruger 10/22 and the best at blasting sh1t is a Mossberg 12ga pump.

M14/M1 Garand "Turning cover into concealment since 1936"

Nothing beats a 1911, been in service for almost 100 years. If you want a plastic handgun go to toys r us

the M24

saw-granted not a powerful as the 240b but its extremely man portable (by one man, not a 3 man weapons squad team) and better imo a urban environment.

Well...the role of the M249 (5.56x45) is a SQUAD Automatic Weapon.

The M240B (7.62x51) is more of a general purpose machine gun/medium machine gun.

as a 11b im pretty sure i know that.

in a recon platoon weapon choice is dependent on mettc

as a element is usually 4-6 men max. everyone carries alot of firepower

meaning if the mission calls for it 1 man will carry the 240b
urban-everybody has to enter/clear a building and engagment ranges will be limited. hence a 249 makes more sense

please dont talk to me like im some pog.

Oh...I thought it was a typo and you meant M240.

I know what the M24 is now...I was just sidetracked when you went to MGs.

cant speak for the corps but the army is breaking old M14s out and re-reissuing them to "designated marksman" its stupid because most "designated marksmen" cant shoot well enough to exploit the weapons capabilities and lack even a basic understanding of long range shooting. they sure do like carrying the m14 around though, think it makes them a "sniper" all it does is make them the first target of a enemy sniper.

on the flip side my platoon had a match version of the M14. with LR ammo it could reach out and touch somebody.

I like bolt action carabiners...I don't need to fire many rounds; its all about quality not quantity.
