    The SAW was after my time so I really don't know what a combat loadout would be. When I carried the 60 I had a belt in the gun and the other belt in the can on my ruck. My ammo bearer would have another can and the accessory pouch. Although it wasn't a whole lot of fun to lug that mess around there certainly was a good bit of satisfaction in being behind it if the lead started flying.
    Oh I know about the pig. The 240b fires the same rounds, and that ****'s no joke either. When I had the 249, I had a 200 round "porkchop" (plastic bullet box that attaches to the gun), with another chop in my assault pack. Pretty sure the regular load is different. USFK does what it wants, how it wants, regardless of how it's supposed to be done.
    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.

    The grandfathered pre-1986 guns are a rare exception. Because of supply and demand they go for such absurdly high prices hardly any gun enthusiasts can afford them. You're right that fully automatic rifles aren't completely banned, but new ones are. The available ones are just impractical to get.

    Full auto lends itself readily to spraying large numbers of bullets around nearly at random.

    Semi-auto, not so much.
    It occurs to me that,
    if folks truly DON'T know the Diff?

    WE could LOAD UP on FULLY AUTO / TRULY ASSAULT (moar than THREE of the Brady Bill paradigm options) weapons,

    and be Ready For Wild Boar.

    The mere suggestion of AWB's makes their prices skyrocket. At this point they're making the $200 tax stamp for full auto look cheap.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    oh, wow ... some alternate reality made this all right-align and ALMOST distracted me from posting :

    WTF???

    MOST, if not all, semi-autos are re-configurable/re-buildable into FULLY AUTOs,

    and I mean, What? All you need is access to ebay, or the like?

    And check THIS out:

    Guns have already been invented!

    REGARDLESS of whether I have access to an ACTUAL "gun,"

    at this point?

    I can d/l, read, understand and copy ALL of the info!

    I don't need what anyone would recognize as a "gun" to shoot someone.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    As an example?

    I could "shoot" someone with an ice pellet,

    and, other than the modus operandi if I did it, AGAIN?

    Yeah.

    Thank God HE reached down to me, eh?

    If folks WANT to kill each other?

    They are ONLY limited by their own imaginations,

    but if the ACT is the natural progression for their fantasies?

    They don't respect the most basic of truths :

    Life is a GIFT and to try, or to, steal it from anyone, including yourself,

    is denying the God that graced us with it.

    Of course they are. All you need is a basic machine shop, and some knowledge of how to build things.

    After all, if you can build this:



    You can make a fully automatic M-16 out of a semi-automatic AR-15.

    Now that is a Colt Auto Sear. But if your machining capabilities are not that good, you can make a kludge that works just as well:



    For other weapons, you can build one of these, which clips in front of the trigger. Each turn fires another round.



    And if you got 2 Ruger 10/22s, you can build one of these:



    However, how many of these items have you heard about being used in crimes? None I bet, because the Gatling Gun Ruger is a curiosity, and the finger crank is a fun toy, but highly inaccurate. And many states consider those "Automatic Weapons", and have outlawed their possession.

    I do not worry about such things, since if you look at the vast majority of these incidents, the individuals used semi-automatic weapons, not fully automatic ones. In fact, the last time I can remember hearing of a mass shooting with an illegal conversion rifle was the 1997 North Hollywood Shootout. The vast majority of these incidents just uses off the shelf weapons.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    Isn't the official definition a carbine, or short rifle that has high ammo capacity and selective firing modes?
