  • What would you feel comfortable with?

    If you were a modern day soldier, and you had the choice of what rifle, sidearm and\or heavy weapon ( which you dont ) you had to take with you, what would you feel the most comfortable out in the field with? and why?

    If this has been posted before, im sorry, but I couldnt find it.

    Rifle: H&K G36K or F88 Austeyr w/ 3.5x Elcan scope
    Pistol: Sig Sauer P226 in .40 S&W
    Heavy: RPO-A

    G36 for ease of use (cleaning, modularity, atachments, quality), F88 cos I know it well , P226 from my time in Chechnya, RPO-A cause what you hit is staying down and it's not too heavy to carry.

            Well, I thought about the following:

            Rifle: H&K G36
            Pistol: H&K UMP .45 SL
            Heavy: RPO-A

            And some body armor would be nice too

            returned to its home base."

              Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

                              Feeling comfortable, as in for myself? Lets see.

                              That would be a system that doesn't attract too much attention by enemy fire. MGs in particular are very bad. Enemy soldiers might also take offense when threatenend by ATGMs, plus it wouldn't allow you to carry enough stopping power for rushes of AK-47 toting rebels.

                              I would want enough ammo that I don't run out, so a 7.62mm rifle would be out. I guess it comes down to an M16, and I want the 40mm grenade launcher so that I can pop an occasional BMP or BTR or pretend to be dangerous to charging mobs.

                              Obviously, to make myself useful on the battlefield I would want a little more range than the M16 offers, so one of the 6.8mm systems might be desirable. But unfortunately they would mean you can't pick up ammo from random sources and might not be a good solution in the current environment.

                              I would probably not bother with a sidearm and take more rifle ammo instead.

                              The secondary items shouldn't be forgotten:
                              - I want a pair of decent binoculars
                              - a robust compass, flashlight
                              - a radio with enough spare batteries
                              - water
                              - cash money in the currency used where I am
