M134s, M82s, HK USPs, and Benelli M4.

Of course everything has armor piercing incendiary rounds. And each man would have a bag of steroids to help with the lifting.

Not much would stop us, our name would be Super Secret Muscle Squirrels

Arming a special forces fantacy is cool. But I'd druther keep it within reality. So if I may partially hijack this thread...

Scenario... A security team attached to a ship travelling through pirate waters.
What would your idea of a weapons load out be.


Scenario... A security company contracted to protect a mass transit rail project.
What would be your idea of the weapons/equipment load out for individual security men, and what additional back-up contingency weapons and personell would be needed. (inside conUS)


Scenario... A security team assigned to a low rent high crime housing development with a resident gang.

What would you choose as individual weapons/equipment, and what equipment in case of a poop-storm.

Hmm...

Scenario 1: Barrett REC7 6.8, HK USP45, MK43 MG, Airtronic RPG-7, Remington 870 Shotgun.

Scenario 2: HK USP45 concealed, Remington 870 with rubber ammunition, how exactly is a rail transit a target to threats this bad?

Scenario 3: HK45C, Remington 870, HK MP7A1 if they need that much firepower.

What about if they didn't have to have small arms?
Can they not just fly around in the most badassedness Apaches (the A model not the stupid bobble top dome one) and they can just blow everything up with like chain guns and lazerz and nukes and stuff.

My good friend Gecko 45 is Spec ops and he just has a glock with a 200 round drum and an AKSU that is only fully automatic as semi auto is dum for zombie killing.

Totally! Then, when you get to, like, the fourteenth level, and the sorcerer threatens to take your magic beads, you can reload the 40mm grenade launcher by eating the glowing ball, and, like . . .
It was embarassing having to explain to my classmates why I busted out laughing after reading this.
Even more embarassing to be surrounded by college students who didn't see anything wrong with the "AK's never jam and Deagles for pistols" comment

I hear he managed to acquire some special restricted tactical manhole covers that can stop an AP .50 BMG round. Illegal for standard citizens to own but professionals with his clearance can have them on hand.

In seriousness, after reading this thread it seems like a waste of time to contemplate arming a private military force. An exercise in semantic futility. I totally approve.


My pick:

Rifle
  • NATO Caliber: Beretta ARX-160
  • Warsaw: AK-103

SMG: Vector KRISS

Pistol: Glock 21

You forgot the obligatory Mossberg Deer Slayer or 870 Wingmaster that most of us country boys have.

Ahhh, the trouble to be gotten in to with potato guns and three man slingshots.

Time to step it up with bowling ball mortars.

I'd get the following.

M4's for most, but no full auto at all, not 3 rds, nothin. 24" AR's for the Designated Marksman/sniper role. Forget the rest of the longarms, they are not worth bothing with. The pistol, probably Glock 9mm's, the compact version, for the double stack,the "no bother" safety system and the corrosion resistance, reliability and durability. I don't own one, aint gonna toss out all my work to be good with cocked and locked SA's, but for a team, yeah, Glocks. I'd put good softpoints in the 223, since we never signed the Hague Agreement, and haven't had a declared war in 70 years or so! :-) I'd put CorBon 100 gr PowRBall ammo in the Glocks.
