Title: Firearms
Post by: Centurion40 on April 25, 2018, 06:56:22 AM
If you were a special operator, and had the choice of personal weapon- what would you choose?  I've been mulling this over (not that I am in ANY danger of EVER becoming a special operator or going back into the Army... I'm almost 55 and fat as a whale).

I like what I'm seeing on the Bushmaster/Remington ACR/XCR; as I'm a leftie (and not just politically).  But wondering what people thought related to the SCAR type rifle, versus the AR-15 or AK type?

I'm also liking the thought of going heavy.  When I was in the Canadian Army (Reserves) we used the FNC1, a 7.62 semi-auto.  I like the thought of being able to reach-out a little farther and hit a little harder.

What about a CZ Bren?

...special operator, urban environment, cramped vehicles, 'semi' concealed carry,...

Take a look at the HK MP 7
short, no recoil, below 2kg, 40 round mags, defeats 1,6 mm Titan plate plus 20 layers of kevlar @200m

I have a Bushmaster ACR. I would recommend against it.

Look at anything shooting .300 Blackout. I'm falling in love.

Keep it simple - Colt or other quality AR carbine, and a Glock 19.

Took 40Jr to the range on the weekend. Shot a Tavor, a Jericho, and a Sig P320. First time shooting a bull pup. Canít say that I like it. Much prefer an AR. The Jericho and 320 were sweet.
