I learned how to operate the machine gun in the service.

It's right up the road at the National Guard armory when I need it.

Doesn't that depend on when you were in the service?

 

Weapons and tech change. It won't be the same as it used to be.

I have a Springfield Armory M1a. I trained on a M-14. I have used an M-16. I prefer the M-14 clone for the uses i plan for it. The .308 is a real stopper and the M-14 clone is far more accurate. 

 

A nice battle rifle.

 

Have a ~ 2.5 MOA M1 rifle that will serve the purpose of instructional tool for those lacking the education of the Support and Defense of the Constitution.

On the other hand, .30 M2/AP will punch a hole through a whole line of Democrat National Socialists and Communists...

... as well as turnin' "Cover" into "Concealment".

 

Funny lookin' .50 round.

It's almost as if you don't know shit about weapons....

Better hope they don't drug test you, Potsy.

The M1A's are excellent rifles. Not a thing wrong with them.

5.56 round is better. Lighter to carry and more apt to wound than kill. An injured soldier eliminates 3 or more people to attend to him. 

I prefer 308.  5.56 is obviously an effective round.  I don't buy into that "better to wound than kill", nonsense.

M193 will tumble inside of ~200 yards and really tear shit up.

 

Shot a fryer chicken once (Yote bait), and it absolutely blew it to pieces.

 

 

But, w/ a good hit, a .30 will but a man down at any range out to 500 yds.

 

And I don't mind a 10 lb. rifle.

 

In close:

 

 

 

Or, out a ways:

True I shot thousands of rounds through an accurized M1A, however lug one around and a couple hundred rounds around for a day.

Nice videos, if you don't mind a ten pound rifle then you haven't done much hiking around in the mountains with one. Still the average engagement range is going to be less than 200 yards, even closer in towns. The most important work will be inside of good shotgun range.

If I were going to be hiking long distances, I wouldn't want to carry an M1A or an AR. I'd probably opt for a 5.56 Bullpup like the Tavor.  Today's bullpups have come a long way - K&M, Desertech, Tavor - all make some fantastic, compact and lightweight rifles for people on the move.

This - is a great field carbine/ 200 yd. problem solver.

200 rounds of .308 are not fun to carry. 5.56 makes a difference in weight to carry. Bonus you can have MORE ammo

And don't get me wrong, A sniper with .338 Lapua is as deadly as it gets. But everyone cannot be a sniper.

Actually you carry the same weight but you get more trigger pulls from 5.56.

Disagree.

 

This is the model:

 

An accomplishment that could be performed by any citizen, with the skill-set, and ~ $1,500 investment in personal equipment.

I know that's a fact but I am no longer 20 and in top shape.   However I stand by my contention that most fighting would be in and around housing at ranges of less than 200 yards.

You are so stupid. The first amendment is being destroyed as we speak retard. Why you leftrats in most other forums are circle jerking. The freedom of speech being attacked means without dialogue the second amendment must come into play.
