    Hammer816 reacted to Hammer816 in Shotgun Primer Grenades   
    I noticed in many of Matt the Musketeer's videos that he uses grenades which use .209 shotgun primers to produce a flash and report similar to a thermobaric but are more cost efficient. Would such devices be prohibited under the "No blank-firing devices" rule or would they be considered lethal inside buildings like the thermobaric grenades? I suspect they would be allowed because that rule is to clarify that blank firing rifles are not allowed like they are at MSW.
     
    I'm sorry if this has been addressed already but I wanted to know before I considered throwing down more than a hundred bucks to pick something like that up. It seems like at an event like Copperhead where grenades carry the day, a reloadable grenade would be worth the investment.

    Lots of paperwork, phone calls, face to face meetings and DOD classes. Many of us have taken Range Safety Officer classes at so many bases its rediculous. It usually starts with a phone call.

    If this has already been addressed I failed to find it in the forums and I apologize.
     
    I understand that the basic tactical unit of an AMS event is the squad, ten guys with a medic, a marksman, a support gunner, and a HWS. Generally this is the formula that is followed by all but a few special purpose units. What I wanted to ask about is whether a COST or UFS platoon leader is capable of shifting willing players within his platoon to accomplish specific objects. That is, if we have four squads in a platoon, is the rule still that a squad must contain ten players with only 1 SAW, heavy weapon, etc., or that each platoon can have only 4 of each specialist?
     
    Hypothetical: A platoon of COST os tasked with holding Caen. The platoon leader has 4 rule compliant squads at his disposal. He tasks two squads, squads 1 and 2, with holding the two entrances to the town, respectively, and squads 3 and 4 with the rest of the perimeter in between those two points of likely attack.
     
    Platoon leader received word that a sizeable force of UFS are approaching from down the road with at least 2 POVs. He sends one of his perimeter squads, squad 4, to set up an ambush the enemy column a couple hundred meters before they reach the town.
     
    Knowing that the ambush team will be engaging a numerically superior force supplemented with armor, can the platoon leader attach the medic, machine gunner, and heavy weapon specialist of squad 3 to the ambush team? This would be sending a 13 man squad with 2 medics, 2 machine guns, and 2 anti-armor weapons into the field while an 7 man squad with no medic, MG or AT defending the objective.
     
    A strict reading of the rules prohibits this action but sound tactical doctrine and fairness would not. Any boon to the ambush squad seems to be counteracted by the corresponding weakening of the defensive force. Thoughts and a ruling by admin would be much appreciated.

    We occasionally select the guy with the lightest load to pack an AKSu, MP5, or a G36C folded up in his ruck with a few extra mags in case somebody has a malfunction in the middle of a firefight.  It's faster to whip that out and wait for a lull than to lose a man for the next 20-60 minutes.

    I only just now realized that I have not posted an intro since the forums from the... previous management have been shut down.  I am a CJ major at the University of Central Missouri and have been slinging bbs for almost five years now.  I have a thing for AKs and am currently running an Echo-1 Redstar AKM and first got involved in milsim with Operation Winter Garden II in 2010.  I have since been lucky enough to attend a few other ops, shooting for one or two a year including the sixth and final OKI and look forward to attending Broken Home  II and Rebel Yell II in May and September, respectively.  Thank you AMS for feeding the addiction!

    Senator Dianne Feinstein,
     
    I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma'am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
     
    I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
    I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
     
    I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
     
    We, the people, deserve better than you.
     
    Respectfully Submitted,

    Also, should we be prepared to deal with vehicles or armor? I'm sure we won't have any of the M-114s that we enjoy at the D-Day park but what are we looking at vehicle wise?

    COPPERAUTIS is a grandpa word...My Grandpa used to tell me stuff like, "boy, you better get down outta that tree, you're gonna fall and bust your copperautis (butt)." He used other cool grandpa words like jayhawker (dummy, punk, idiot) as well, but copperautis seemed the most unique. For the record, I have fell on my copperautis many times, but it has never actually busted.
