4 words: Big. Ass. Pistol. Fight

I'll might use it in a scene where Greg and Ares are doing a building search incase of Renamo. Greg has his M1911 which has been fitted with a sound suppressor and Ares uses his H&K Mk.23 that is also suppressed. They go into a room and suddenly, a man armed with an AKMS opens fire upon them. They quickily take him down with mutiple shots from thier pistols. Greg stops to reload, but he then hears noise coming from another room. He motions Ares to the room next door.

Sounds cool. Tell me if you ever publish the book so I can buy a copy

One thing that would be cool, dont just describe the guns, describe peoples gear, what they found is a confortable way to carry them, items they found to be practical they carry, etc. Type of holster (maybe a thigh holster, maybe they have a crossdraw or molle vest, a standard strongside hip holster.) Gives a little more depth than just a list of guns.

I'm going to take your advice K9870 and write down what equipment each character carries.

- Greg keeps his M1911 in a belt holster based on the design of a M1916 Hip Holster. He wears a tan flak jacket with Kevlar body armor under an olive colored T-shirt. He wears his old dog tags around his neck as a good luck charm. As for the lower part of his body, he wears a pair of camo patterned cargo pants and a pair of black combat boots covered with dusk. He carries a large jack knife on the left side of his belt and a double magazine pouch for his pistol is located right behind his holster (which he keeps on his right). His bag is a US Peacekeeper Rapid Deployment Pack. He keeps two 30-round STANAG magazines in each of the two magazine pouches on the front and a single magazine for his M1911 on the side.As for his gear, he keeps six M321 grenades (Portugese version of the M26 grenade that has been adopted by the South African army) along with a M18 smoke grenade. He keeps three more STANAG magazines in his bag for the rest of his ammunition. Other items he keeps in his bag includes a Med kit, a packet of Marlboro cigarrettes, a stianless Zippo lighter, amd a some rations.

STANAG, not STANMAG.

Swordfish941 12-28-2009 11:17 PM

Can someone suggest a few other firearms that can be used in the story? I have an idea that Greg meets another mercinary team at the Mozambique Army base and thier leader, Nolan, carries a Norinco Type 84S fitted with Galil stlye folding stock. Any ideas of what his mercinaries carries?

k9870 12-28-2009 11:22 PM

Id say other AK variants. Share ammo. Have one with a gp-25. Have one squad marksman with a bolt action, maybe a savage with harris bipod and night scope. Sidearms should be a little more personalizedthough. A swuad gunner too. Im not sure what type of SAWs are local to south africa though. Maybe give one a Stryker.

Spartan198 12-28-2009 11:41 PM

Stick an R5, the South African version of the Galil SAR, or two in there, too. Or R6 if you want something that can be "tacticooled" up.

As far as SAWs go, doesn't South Africa use a locally-produced derivative of the Negev light machine gun?

Good thinking. I'll think they'll be used in the story when they are send in as back up to Greg's team and the two soldiers. The marksman will be named Tic-Tac and he'll carry a L1A1 SLR fitted with a high powered scope. Another one will be named Johnson. He'll be the squad gunner and he'll carry a FN Minimi Paratrooper version fitted with a 200-round ammo drum. The second in command is Milo and he carries Norinco Type 56 fitted with a AKM style muzzle break and Remington 870 fitted with synthetic furniture, a heat shield, and a high capicity magazine tube. The last mercinary is named Joesph and he carries a AKM fitted with two magazines taped together "Jungle Style".
