    If you were thrust into the thick of battle and you were stuck in a muddy foxhole with bullets whizzing overhead, but you could only have one weapon, what would it be:?:

    Um lets see I would take the M-4 Carbine. I dont think it is the greatest weapon but I would take it only because I am very very familiar with it and I am an expert shot with it.

    As an old Unarmed Combat Instructor explained to us.

    If they use their fists, get a knife.

    If they use a knife, shoot them with a pistol.

    If they have a pistol, get a rifle.

    If they have a rifle, get artillery.

    ALWAYS hit with a bigger weapon first, and don't stop until they don't move.

    One of those comms gadgets they have in Star Trek, so I can ask Mr Scott to beam me up, just in the nick of time, and then attack with the Enterprise's phasers.

    I wonder if Desert Fox meant in WWII ?? If so, then the StG.44 100% !

    If not, I'd probably still like to have an assault rifle, preferably from Switzerland or Germany. (The SIG-550 perhaps)


    PS: I've never heard of a Harrier or A10 getting stuck in the mud ;)

    Maybe we can limit it to firearms, so no Harriers or Atom Bombs, :lol:
    I'd say an MG42 with a hell of a lot of ammo!
