The M3/M3A1 SMG has been the "grease gun" since they were first issued, in WWII. Other than the magazine sticking out, it looks a LOT like the standard automotive grease gun used at the time, and still in use today.

Jeff Cooper referred to the M16 as a "poodle shooter" on numerous occasions. I believe his reasoning was based on the cartridge, which in the civilian world was a varmint round, suitable for shooting "pasture poodles" (prairie dogs, etc.)

The modern military had a different opinion.
