Anybody that carries a semi 249 should be TWAT.

It actually makes a certain amount of sense....bear with me here....

LE, like it or not, have a legitimate requirement to utilise armoured vehicles. Let's say the Lenco Bearcat, just for the sake of discussion.

One of the requirements/roles/tactics of a Tactical team is to have an Officer on overwatch, utilising the top turret of the Bearcat. Now, they can have a weapon system just resting on the vehicle, or a more stable vehicle-mounted system.

The M249, is a weapon suitable for mounting to a vehicle, more easily adapted to do so than say an M4.

But...most people would agree that a fully-automatic belt-fed system is not suitable to LE TTPs, nor permitted by most legislation.

So...someone, somewhere, tries to figure out how to meet the requirements of a reliable vehicle-mounted weapon system, that is still legal and meets LE TTPs, and they come up with a semi-auto belt-fed system.

Yes, it looks like a duck with 1 leg and 6 wings, but the human race is filled with people who find different solutions to the same problem.

Personally, I have no issue with it, as long as the training is solid.

The only reason I liked the SAW was I could carry a double butt-load of ammo.
The Pig was where it was at.

I only wished for a semi-auto M60 in 1984. Not.

The one I carried was practically semi auto. I'm pretty sure it was salvaged from Khe San.

Glad some of you took the time out of flimming traffic stops and throwing bricks at cop cars to have a few laughs

I could only dream of a day of work where Xbox, gym time, and good food was part of my shift. With a side of cutting up cars...

It’s just jealousy, seriously. I wanna spray shit with a hose.

I don't see it. If I were Sheriff, I'd save my money for jet packs. We could race around the detention center and show off for the opposite sex.
