    As well, current African regimes LOVE gun control, it keeps the weapons in their hands while they are free to rape, oppress, murder, and otherwise pillage their rival tribes. German gun control was the first step to solidifying the Third Reich's position to centralize the Deutschlands into Nazi SS control, we all know how that turned out. Very few dictatorships actually armed their citizens, I believe the only one that did was that of the Iraqi regime, that's the only one I can remember anyway.
    those in most need of being shot tend to be people who want to deprive others of owning guns

    The Viet Cong killed many of our guys out there with traps made of wooden sticks and other non firearms related nastyness.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    we got even though

    a popular trick was to take a 55 gallon oil can and stick 6 foot pieces of REBAR through it and put about a 100 pounds of concrete into this "morning star" like contraption. Fecal material was smeared on the rebar and the contraption was hoisted into the canopy with a trip wire holding it up. Even a scratch on "charlie" was likely to be fatal since Uncle Ho's boys didn't have much in the way of antibiotics.

    and of course there was the lovely concoction known as FOOGAS. gasoline, motor oil and kerosene in said 55 gallon drums. thermite grenade on the front, dynamite stick on the back-the detonation timing was set that the thermite would ignite just before the dynamite blew the stuff down range. One shot flamethrower-usually set at the corners of the wire fences around an A camp.

    crispy critters all around

    Knives are common here. Quiet, cheap, and it has a stronger psychological impact.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    Would you choose 5.56mm or 7.62mm?

    Each has a trade-off, but I would like to hear your reasons for your choice.

    ***
    I would choose 5.56mm only because this is the round my issued service weapon fires. I would like my practice to be as close to the real thing as possible.

    ***
    Also, does anyone here practice 'reduced visibility' or night-fire? Off-hand shooting? Unusually firing positions or other drills? I would love to hear about what you do, pictures are appreciated, too.

    If I had to have an assault rifle, I'd want something chambered in 7.62x51 NATO. None of that x39 crap. I prefer a bolt-action, but should we ever be invaded and occupied, something like an FAL or a HK G3 would be more practical than my Remington.

    I've done all that stuff. The worst was firing while in MOPP gear. They had us doing that **** in the middle of summer in Korea. After the first 30 minutes, I couldn't see **** because the lenses were covered in condensation, and the claustrophobia had reached its peak.

    Part of our qualification test is in MOPP gear. I don't know if this was the case when you were in, and it wasn't while I was in BCT. A lot of folks shoot better while wearing the mask because it forces the shooter to control their breathing.
