    National Guard Armory...

    There is a National Guard Armory a few miles from my house. I'm curious, does anyone know what kind of weaponry they keep at one of those? Presumably a bunch of M-4s, but what else?

    That depends on the unit. I worked at one when I was a kid for the summer and they kept a huge supply of M-16's about 20 M-60's and 4 Browning M2's. I got to help inventory the armory that summer, great job for a 14yo.

    No anti-aircraft or anti-tank weapons?

    I would say that depends on the unit. The unit I was working with had these.

    Find out what type of unit is there, and it will give us a clue as to what might be housed there.

    I used to work on a base as a patrol officer. We spent a majority of our time driving around and doing traffic stops for tailing someone through the automated gate system we had. We were the only people with access to everything. We had some toys in there let me tell you...

    The unit one city over from mine is mechanized infantry - light arms are M4's, vehicles are Bradley's. The last time I was on the base they had AT4's but that was awhile ago.

    Will do! It actually wouldn't surprise me if some poor schmuck actually had that job at Homeland (in)Security. Or maybe its part of ECHELON. Hmm, that could be interesting...

    The one by my house keeps their standard issue rifles plus another unit's rifles. They are qualified for Stingers but I don't know if they have live ordnance. Probably not.

    They generally have whatever arms that unit is required to have to function. My unit had 1911s, grease guns, M16s, and the Browning machine guns that were mounted in the tanks. When we went somewhere requiring it, we drew out whatever weapons were needed.

    Our unit kept no ammunition, ordnance or other explosive materials....

    The one in Leesburg VA is a big empty building that you can rent for parties (wedding receptions). So they may not have anything.
    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    The entire building is not empty, atctimmy, just the "drill floor" area (usually a basketball court or similar). Often, there will be kitchen facilities close to this open area. The rest of the building contains offices, storage areas, training areas, maintenance areas, and whatever else the tenant unit needs for day-to-day operations.

    The weapons are stored in a massive vault that is alarmed when not in use. Usually, no ammo or ordnance is kept at the armory, but at an Ammunition Supply Point on the nearest actual military base.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
