Civilian militia army


So let’s just pretend. An invasion is imminent. China’s army is here. Aliens have arrived. An army of Sasquatch is approaching the US. There is not enough military force assembled to meet the immediate threat. Civilian militia is called upon for support. Let's say you have to grab your gun. Then meet at city hall in one hour for futher orders. How many of you would volunteer?

Good news. Every store in the state is giving ammo to support the milita forces. The military is also helping out. So let's say all ammo will be supplied even though everyone should bring some ammo of their own.




I imagine we would have militia groups of:


Assault rifle divison: AK’s, AR’s, etc…
Long rifle division: 22’s on up
Shotgun division: First shot is with a slug then go straight to buckshot.




The weapon I would bring would be a M1 Garand and as much ammo as I could carry.

What weapon will you take?

You'll die first. It it's squatches or large alien's you'll need that level of firepower, but for Christ's sake, get a lighter, modern weapon that uses mags like an FAL, AR10, G3 or M1A.

If it's Chinese, smaller aliens or zombies, just get an goddamn AR. You can carry a LOT more ammo.

A pump or semi-auto of your choice, cut down to 16" or so.

The .45 of your choice.

My arsenal, assuming I am limited to guns I own:
Imbel FAL or DPMS M4, 870 Riot Gun, FN45.

If I can have anything off the rack:
High-end AR10 with a 26" barrel and $1,200 Nightforce scope or JP Enterprises JP15 w/20" barrel and ACOG, Benelli M4, FN45.

No thanks. I don't own an AR, AK, etc... and I will never buy one. I do not have a need for one and will not waste my money.

This is a milita army. The entire population does not own AR's. You have to pick a weapon you own and bring it.

This will cause a full blown retreat.

Oh

Probably my marlin .30-30 in that case. Pretty much the only thing I own that is even a viable option for a combat weapon.

re: Civilian militia army


In that case my 30-30 also. Very reliable. .357 highway patrol edition on my hip.

My dad is a Vietnam veteran. He trained with an M14 in basic and was handed an M16 when he got off the plane in Vietnam. I asked him one time about the M14/M16 debate. He said it's fricking stupid; M16 all the way. They carried 200 rounds of ammo at all times and any man would die carrying that weight in 7.72 NATO. We didn't go into the stopping power debate, but he said it was more than plenty good.

As a civilian militia we aren't bound by FMJ and there are some great HP and BT rounds out there.

M14 with a detachable scope and the trusty 1911 as my sidearm. I'll be worn slap out from toting that heavy equipment though.

Something like this would probably be my #1 choice. An MP5 or something that I can definitely find ammo for.

My trigger happy arse would need to be scrounging up lots of ammo unless I got capped pretty quick.
