    Question Military Weapons

    I was wondering how the army assigns weapons to there troops. I know that they don't just hand you a weapon and say go, or do they? is every troop issued an M16 or M4A1, how do they pick SAW gunners, I want info.......

    There are several guys on the the MAA board who are "active". You can try asking there.

    When I was a grunt I was assigned to carry the M60 because I asked for it when a spot in my unit came open. Course that was 20 years ago.

    And really, bumping your thread in less than 12 hours? We don't even have a second page in this subforum, and this thread couldn't possibly have gone lower than the third thread on the page. That seems a "little" unnecessary.

    The reason for the "bump" was because as soon as i had posted my question, someone posted in the euro cars thread and my question was no longer visible. After bumping it back I have gotten many answers to my question, so I feel the bump was worth the time.

    The weapon assignments i believe are due to body type the larger gents or ladies are given the heavier weapons. Then again it is just a theory.

    Weapon's assignment is given to certain duty positions.. Most of the time its the best guy for the job other times its just luck of the draw.
    They give the automatic weapons to the most senior- junior- enlistedmen due to experience because it is the most "casualty producing weapon". however there are exceptions like my junior leadership is a shitbag so I ended up humping the gun for him..
    M14EBR's are given to squad designated marksmen who are obviously the best shot..
    In my unit there is no such thing as just a rifleman because we roll out with less people... so they usually carry a 203 or LAW or mine/wire detecting equipment.

    Are designated marksmen, snipers, or are the a tier below a sniper?

    SDM's are accurate shooters who know how to shoot a leopold or are really good with an ACOG. Before we just had M16' s with ACOG's but right before stan we got the EBR's and they trained em pretty hard because we knew if we wanted to crack some skulls we were gonna need the range other than a 240b or MK48.
