    Military weapons.

    Lets see, The M-16. The Light anti tank weapon (LAW). The good old 12 gauge 870 pump shotgun (guard duty weapon) A few hand grenades, Last and best was the M60- machine gun. I was the big guy so I got to carry the thing. Wherever she went, a couple of thousand rounds went too. The ammo was NEVER carried back. It was worth packing it just to get to let er rip.

    My first post so here is one of my favorite old saying:
    "Beware the man who only has one gun, He knows how to use it"

    military weapons

    i was Marine Infantry (0331)from 98-02, and I have been Army NG Apache Armament since then. In my time in service I have shot the following:

    Qualified - M-16A2, M9(Beretta92F), M240G, Browning M2, MK 19
    Other- M249 SAW, M203, 60mm Mortar

    I have also fired spotting rounds from a SMAW, and AT-4 9mm trainer, and have had the absolute pleasure of firing 30mm dummy rounds from an Apache Longbow CPG (Co-Pilot/Gunner) seat. Not quite as nice as shooting them live, but still.

    Have only ever really got to mess with an M-60 once (with blanks), I would give anything to get to know more about that weapon.

    From the civilian side I have shot a full auto M-14 and full auto AK-47, AK-74

    When my ship was preparing to hit the Persian Gulf (Before the war between Iran and Iraq, but when tensions were running high) I got to train on the M60, M79, and deck mounted .50 BMG. My GQ station for MEFEX (Middle East Forces Excercises) was M14 automatic rifleman.

    Post service, I have some experiences with the M1 Carbine, that being a part of my collection. Fun shooting little gun!
    When it comes to handguns, there are Sig Sauers, then there's everything else.

    When i first joined the Guard in '02, I was issued an M16-A1, but they rotated them out and A2's in before I could have shot it.

  9. US Army, 1974-1992: M16A1, M16A2, M203, M60, M249, 90mm Recoilless Rifle, Dragon, TOW, LAW, 1911, M9, MP5SD, and the M21 Sniper System. Several others as we cross trained on foreign weapons but this list is already long enough. Also fired M1 Garands and M14s when shooting on the Post high Power Competition Team.

    I think I have qualified on most crew serve weapons and below that the Army offfers. M4-M16A1/A2-M240B-M249-M2-MK19-M9-M203-M500 shotgun-AT4 and a few more that I can't remember over the past 10 years. Also got the chance to fire the Barrett .50 cal sniper rifle while in Iraq A cool toy!

    Gotta give the Army credit, the biggest POS that we carry is the Beretta 92FS

  11. I've fired everything from the M2HB on down. Carried the M249 for 18 months, the M203 for about six months and a regular M4 the rest of the time. For a while I had the AN/PAS-13 thermal sight mounted to my M4 for night patrols.
