What is your favorite military weapon you've ever used. It can be because of its lethality or just because it made you want get up and yell "MURICA". Keep it within the military arsenal though. It can be anywhere from a K-Bar to an A-10. But you yourself have to have used it or shot it.

My favorite weapon that I have ever used is the M134 Minigun. If you're ever in doubt unload massive amounts of freedom on your enemies.

We never had such a useful item. In fact we never had much more than our o.d. green fatigues. A good starch added sheen, highly polished boots reflected, and then the birth control glasses were impossible to miss.

I'm in favor of the troops in formation runs being armed. Any vehicle within 100 meters is a viable target. Any NCO or above can ID the target and call "weapons free" if he or she feels the vehicle poses a threat. I'll bet after the first few incidents vehicles find different routes.

My favorite military weapon while I served was the M14. I was threatened with courts martial if I didn't turn it in while in Vietnam. I finally turned it in on the day I got on the airplane to leave. I used it again when I served on the honor guard detail at Ft. Carson and again with the Army Marksmanship Team.

Woody: Nice choice! I hit the Philippines in 1973 and the USMC was still using the M-14. I qualified with it twice and never had to with the M-16. We fired FAM with the M-16 at Infantry Training School. I compliment you on your taste in fine military hardware and weaponry...! Semper Fi, COL L

1SG: Outstanding choice in fine weaponry as well. I not only qualified twice with the M-14 (once in boot camp and once overseas) I have served over 40-years in law enforcement and still carry the M-14 as my patrol rifle (brand new from federal government). It shoots like a dream. Thank you for your distinguished service! COL L

I guess I was one of the last to use the M-14 in basic (Ft. Benning 69), and loved it, thumb well and all, when we were sent to Viet Nam we were issued the M-16 and was not very pleased, other than it was lighter. Didn't fire it again until Ft. Hood on the 5th Army rifle team and later with the National Guard rifle team. It definitely was my pick for an Infantry rifle.

I was Infantry, active and reserves, 1956-1990 and never hear "ma deuce". It was simply the ".50 caliber" . Maybe it was different in USMC? They were fun to shoot though.
