-All you needed to do to get a vote on the MK-19 vs SPG-9 was say you wanted to take it to a vote when I suggested taking it to a vote. But when I say "we can put it to a vote if you really want to" I'm probably not going to do so unless you confirm that yes, you want to do so.
I have more of a problem with some of your choices than others. Ammo wise, in production does not mean readily available everywhere, especially parts of the world where you'd be lucky to find anyone
using a particular caliber. Getting someone to smuggle something in specifically for you is going to get expensive, especially compared to calibers where cheap surplus is readily available.
The biggest objection I have is definitely to the MP-5/10 though due to it being made specifically for US Law Enforcement. I would consider a 9mm MP5 custom converted to .45 reasonable (even though I'm trying to get away from MP5s a bit), but it seems you consider .45 a boring caliber in addition to considering 9mm too small? @Writersblockade
-While I'd like to see less MP5s (ditto Glocks and SiGs) its mainly the fact that its the model that was made specifically
for the US DOD that I have an issue with. I might have preferred to see Cash use something like the Swedish K that was favored by US covert ops types in Vietnam, but a MP5 model that wasn't made specifically for a US Government agency would be acceptable.
As for old versus new, soldiers tend to have strong loyalty to weapons that work, and the new isn't necessarily much better than the old -heck, there are people who consider the M16A1 a better assault rifle than the M16A2 model. This is not to say the crew shouldn't have any new toys, but why spend a lot of time and money to acquire something new when old faithful is a proven performer?
Of course, Cash could be the type who is really into having the latest new toys. If that's the case maybe I should be rethinking the contents of that arms locker. I'd kind of prefer not to go that route though.@Neysha
-I'd like to get some variety but a Sig is probably fine. Though, btw, if it's largely for show why not go for the pimped out look? Get a hard chromed M1911 with pearl grips or something?
