Given the choice, no red tape, no rules, ect. If you could carry 2 arms into prolonged combat (possible weeks on foot), no weight problems or anything, would you take 2 guns, 1- close range (0-300 yds) and 1-long range gun(300-1000 yds)? Or would you rather just have one that you have better training on? If it's the one, long or short range? It would be varied terrain, majority of urban/lightly wooded, against superior numbers. Any input? Maby something i didn't address? Oh, you'll have a team of 3-5 people with you.

Well if ammo resupply was no problem , I would go with the AR10 or G3 or FNC Para in 308 , still can't put much faith in 22 cal projectiles . For sidearm nothing beats ol' slabsides in 45ACP . Just call me old fashion . ( Hell I'll even accept mule-headed on this point)

well, good opintel provided, i would carry exactly what the badguys had. easy resupply, and chances are it will function well in that environment, also sterility and plausible deniabilty.

Give me a 12ga. and one of them 16's with a 40mm launcher. And the other guys,,,,,well make sure at least one of them is hooked up on the radio to one of them C-130 gunships. Don't forget the water. You'll get real dry in a hurry. Home is where you dig it.

I would take the best battle rifle there is, M-14 then it's between 1911 or Mod 12 shotgun.All three are reliable & work in the worse conditions.Some of you won't like my choice,that's way it is. In 1967 a M-16 all most my ass shot off! From then on I carried M-14 for rifle.I said , I would never touch one again! Well I was wrong I got one, to go along with my M-14 & my Les Bear's . And for those of you ,who love the AR-15's,they have improve a bunch. To me what ever you have, know it,practice & practice some more.Do that and and use your head, and good team member's goes along way.

Thanks 428, the '69 mustang 428CJ is my favorite car of all time. Some say the 429 is better, but i'll stick with the 428.

Go with the lightest, since you are going to be spread loading the ammo and batteries for the real killers, your machine guns, mortars and your radio.

I certainly wasn't there, but what did the 101st do in Hue in 1969? The battle of Hue City occured in early 1968 and involved 1st MarDiv Marines, ARVN forces and elements of the 1st Cav to open the route to Hue city

well for short range I'd take my M4 carbine. Long distance I'd take an M24 in 5.56. Then I'd use my dead enemy's weapon.

STLRN,IT WAS JUST A PLACE I CALLED HOME FOR ALMOST A YEAR,AT CAMP EAGLE,HOME OF THE 101ST ARBN,FOR YOUR INFO,WE WERE STILL SENDING 400 TO 600 HOME (A WEEK) DEAD.....1969 WAS STILL HOT,SEEMS TET GETS THE STAR,BUT ALOT OF GUYS WOULD SAY THAT 1963 TILL THE DAY WE PULLED OUT WAS DANGEROUS,AND LIABLE TO TAKE YOUR LIFE..WAS KINDA HOPING TO HEAR FROM SOMEONE WHO WAS THERE OR CLOSE.

As I said, I wasn't there, and was interesed in the 101's involvement in Hue. I don't think the number of dead a week is accurate, if you do the math that is between 20800-31200 dead in a year, about half of the total losses for the entire war.
