light, cheap to make very effective.
And its single shot, so what?

For many reasons I wont bother exploring "you miss, you die" seems uninsightful.

I also do not know why my post was so offense to you

The BAR was just one cool gun, I've loved it since I was a kid. But the M1 Garand and the M1 carbine are the guns I'd choose. Workhorses for sure.

It did not offend me, I just wanted to be sure you understood what you where saying. And yes, I know missing with the panzerfaust is unlikely simply because of the size of the target, but it is such short range that you have to get dangerously close, unless you want to fire in a high ark and have next to no chance of hitting.

See, I like the B.A.R. because in some ways it is the M-4 of it's day. I mean, other than it being so long and heavy, and a bigger round. It is full auto, like the M-4 so it can be used in a charge or when you need to put a lot of lead down range. Plus, it is accurate enough to snipe someone (my definition of sniping is an accurate shot from at least 50 yards, although you probably could still snipe with it anyways). So you can pick em off from a fair distance.

WWII weapons are most interesting. It seems to me the modern handgun that we know today was birthed by that conflict. I enjoy shooting and experimenting with these old classics. Here is a few.

For me, the PPSh41.

There's a six-way tie for second place.

The Garand, 1903 Springfield, Enfield, M44,1911, and SVT40.

Nitestalker,
Could we have a little ID on those.
I'm thinking three of them look German ...

The BAR always reminds me of Steve McQueen's movie "The Sand Pebbles". He was quite the loner in that picture - he usually is though. The final scenes show him as a Navy sailor with a BAR. A pretty awesome weapon in the early 1920's in a gunboat skirmish in China.

my personal favorite of WWII would probably have to be the M1 Garand.
