    What'd you buy?

    What assault rifle/smg would you buy if all restrictions on purchase were to be dropped for a day?

    Personally I'd either get a Steyr AUG or a silenced M4.

    I would have to go with a real classic, the WWII BAR.

    There are so many I'd love to get. I don't know if I could pick just one. Here are some that would be on my list to "test" before making a decision.

    HK M29 OICW - If it's ever put into production it will be pretty sweet. Who wouldn't want a 6-shot 20mm grenade launcher?

    HK G36C - Nice little gun.

    HK MP5SD - Not sure which flavor, there are so many configurations to choose from.

    FN M249 SAW - Who wouldn't want one of these at the range?

    Colt M4 or CAR15 - Can I add an M203 to it?

    Do we have to limit it to guns, or could I get a SRAW too?

    If I had the money it would be a real Russian AK-47.

    I'd go for a 1927 Thompson ... always liked the classic lines of them.

    MP5 with suppressor and several large capacity magazines. I might even consider selling a kidney for that.

    HK MP5SD. I agree with Ram Rod, might have to sell a kidney or something to afford it, but that would definitely be my first choice.

    You will have to sell a lot more than a kidney to cover that one.
