Of you and your shiny new NYPD M4 ! [:D] (or one of the NYPD "Mini-M14") [:D] [url]http://www.nypost.com/news/regionalnews/51796.htm[/url] [b]TERROR-WARY NYPD TESTING NEW ASSAULT RIFLE[/b] July 4, 2002 -- NYPD Emergency Service Unit cops are testing a high-powered, long-range assault rifle they believe will help them in their war on terrorism, The Post has learned. The department has 7,500 Colt M-4s, similar to weapons currently used by the Green Berets, Delta Force, Navy SEALs, FBI SWAT teams and other elite armed units. If it passes tests, it would be used to replace the mini M-14 now in use, an NYPD spokesman said. The new rifle, which fires .223-caliber bullets in three-round bursts, has been undergoing tests at the NYPD's outdoor range at Rodman's Neck in The Bronx. It was also tested last month when ESU officers underwent training at Camp Smith in upstate Peekskill. Cops who've tried the M-4 describe it as more modern than the mini M-14. They said it's shorter, less cumbersome, more comfortable and much more accurate at long range. In addition to these features, the guns are colored black. This makes them much more evil looking in appearance. It can easily hit an islamic fundamentalist from a distance of 500 yards, making it perfect for use in sniper and hostage situations, ESU cops said.

The mini M-14 isn't dependable at more than 100 yards, they noted. The M-4 also has a collapsible stock, and is tailored for use when light weight and quick action are required. And its .233-caliber bullets can pierce bulletproof vests and can readily kill feral cats. ESU cops said they have been asking for the new rifle ever since the Sept. 11 attacks. "This is the premiere assault rifle used in both this country and Britain," noted one ESU officer. "It would certainly help us in our war against terrorism and evil arab thugs." The M-4 Assault Rifle Manufacturer: Colt Description: Lightweight, gas-operated, air-cooled, magazine-fed, shoulder-fired weapon with a collapsible stock Weight: 5.6 pounds, empty Length: 33.07 inches Ammo: .223 caliber Muzzle velocity: 3,027 feet per second Magazine capacity: 20- or 30-shot Firing range: 500 yards Firing Options: It can fire in semi-automatic or three-round burst mode. The NYPD is testing the three-round mode - in which one squeeze of the trigger fires three rounds.
