I did nuclear/presidential security in Germany during the height of the cold war as an Army MP. My basic load was 330 rounds in 30 round mags for the M-16 and 8 mags for the 1911. I was an M-60 gunner so I also carried an M-60 with 300 rounds. ( My assistant gunner carried another 3000). Our ammo was increased by 550 for the m-16 and 200 for the M-60 (luckily I didn't have to carry the 550 more because I already had the 60)when the threat level increased in 81.
My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.
