    If Texas had its own military, what rifle and sidearm should we adopt?

    Should it be the AR type, M14, FAL, AK or any other?

    How about the pistol? Beretta M9, 1911, Colt .45 revolver?

    My picks are the M14 and the 1911. Both are man (grunt) calibers that seem to fit the Texas personality pretty well. Everybody has their own opinions, so lets hear yours.

    What do yall say?

    It would be hard to argue with your selections. I might change the long gun to an AR10, because it is lighter and I am old.:(

    Since I was the first to respond to your thread - can I be a General in this army?

    45 LC Winchester Lever Actions and 1911s.

    Of course all soldiers would also be equipped with a Kevlar 10 gall on hat, leather concho belt, and a Level III ballistic plate rated beltbucket.

    Officers would be entitled to chromed 1911's with custom carved grips.

    We'll need soldiers too.
    We could either go with mercenaries

    Or design our own super race of mechanized soldier.

    We'll need a new flag:

    I could go either way.






    Seriously though I like the AR-10 1911 combination. Plenty of armourers, ammo, and parts out there for both. Not to mention the fact that that's a whole lot of firepower. I don't think any army in the world packs that sort of firepower.

    I'd have to 2nd the 1911, and the AR platform. Since there are eleventybillion variations of it, it covers all roles needed.

    Is that a gun or a pipe wrench?
