My favorite weapon is the M2. Of course, I don't have one, but I can dream of a day that the United States will be a truly free country, and tyrannical legislation like NFA '34, GCA '68, and the Hughes Amendment to FOPA '86 will be only a bad memory. Then, after prices have normalized, I could maybe afford to buy one. Of course, there's still the cost of the ammunition.

I agree that it is a favorite. I miss the M-2 and Barrett but can't afford to buy or feed either one. Every day that I heard the Ma Deuce rattle off as we left FOB Warrior I knew it couldn't be a bad day.

For sheer stopping power The M-2 and Barrett can do the job . It would keep the pesky neighbors out of your yard . That is reason enough to want one . Don't worry when they take away the 2nd Amendment there will be no life or liberty left to fight for .

I would say the M-3  Grease Gun . Was cool automatic like the Thomson .   You may not have hit anything but you sure as hell could scare them .

CPT (Join to see), the MK 19 is always an extremely close call for me to choose between that and the M2. I go with the M2 because I had more fun shooting it, although that is probably because I got to shoot an entire box of .50, and only a few dozen 40mm.

Ever since I heard that a fully automatic grenade launcher was a real thing, I wanted to shoot one. I got to scratch that itch in OSUT.

SPC Elijah J. Henry I think that is why I love the MK-19 - I got to shoot an entire box at OSUT! Now, that's not saying I didn't get to shoot the M2 plenty of more times in my career, however, the MK-19 just seems to have such a rewarding end result!

Hope it never blows up on you-see it once, and wasn't pretty.

Of weapons that I can legally own, I believe that an AR-10 would be my favorite. I settled for a CETME, but I wish I had saved the money I spent on that and waited till I could afford an AR in 7.62.

I have three Armalite AR-10s, two are AR-10 (T) and an AR10A4 carbine. Very nice rifles and extremely accurate. The M1A Scout Squad Rifle is another that I am fond of.
