Thread: Weapon experience in the military: US Army

  1. #51
    My experience with military weapons (while in the military) was limited to M16, M1911, M9, M60, M203, M72 (Which I fired once) a shotgun the Marines let me carry for a while, and an axe handle. I was pretty good with the axe handle.

    I fired most of the arms that a 11B would need to do the job at hand. Some times when getting ready to go out for the night my m16 would be messed up, had to go to the armor and draw 7.62 mags and ammo and that beat up M14E2 boy I hated that. HE HE HE!!

  4. wow...thats how corny those kids looked in the 80s? Thats not too old of a pick...theres a B-1 in the backround

    SOTIC snipers use airguns and bolt action .22Lr's all the time in training. (Special Operations Target Interdiction Course graduates)

    Think about it. It's not hard to figure out. Everything is the same, except the recoil and the muzzle blast.

    Thumbs up army weapons

The first weapons I carried in combat were the M79 Grenade Launcher, .45 caliber pistol, and the M16. This was before the M16 Over/Under came out (which included a grenade launcher on the bottom). I liked that combination because I didn't have to walk point (the M79 round had to travel 40 meters before it would explode).

    Then when they gave me the 'Over/Under' they took away my .45 (and of course I now had to walk point). They figured since I no longer had to carry that 'heavy' .45, they let me carry 3 claymore mines (boy this brings back memories).

    When I became a squad leader I received a short barrel M16 for close up fighting (not sure of the nomenclature on that one). I really liked that one. I had South Vietnamese Rangers give me c rations (peaches especially) just so I would trade weapons for an hour. They loved it.

    When I first got out I bought an M2 Carbine from a friend at work. In the late 60's early 70's you could buy an entire box (still in original wrapper) for less than $200.00. We often went target shooting together. I really liked that, sorry I sold it.

    As I stated in another post I now carry a S&W model 442 (J frame) lightweight. Kind of hard to carry (concealed) a carbine. I hope it never comes to that.

    I had a S&W Chief Special that I carried for about 14 years (with Hydroshock +P hollow point ammo) that was stolen from my truck. I wouldn't mind having another. I also carry a Davis 22 magnum derringer (also a nice pocket gun), just not at the same time as my S&W .38 cal. 442. I found me a small leather cell phone case that it fits into nicely. That works much better than 911 anyway.
    the short carbine m-16 was called a car-15, and the 40mm grenade lancher under the m-16 is a m-203

    During my time as a Air Force SP/SF (96-00), I was qualified to use the: beretta M-9, M-16 A-2, M-249 SAW, M-203, Mark 19, Law Rockets, Claymore Mines, an 81 MM Mortars. I got to shoot a ton of weapons and loved it all. It was good to be on the 44 man deployable team since we got most of the training. As a LE firearms and tactics instructor I don't get to shoot the same type of weapons, but get much more time behind the trigger than I did in the military. You can't complain when you are shooting someone else's ammo.

    You are the only person I know that likes that hunk of poop.

    I don't know of anyone, with SFG (A) groups that will use it.
