An Infantry squad with ARs or some full auto variant.
Toss in a Flamethrower for good measure.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

Any shotgun will work as long as you let me max out my load with "dragon fire" shells.

edit* I would have to insist on good quality BRASS-cased ammo for the AR.
Samurais wore steel armor!

All of them? That is not my understanding and disagrees with the summary on wikipedia and other interweb sources. Japanese armour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

THE ANATOMY OF THE SAMURAI WARRIOR ARMOR - MilitaryItems.com

Although, after further reading, it is my understanding that the bamboo was said to be only one component of the battle armor. I supose i was thinking more of the practice "armor" they are shown using in practice duels.

Regardless, i'd prefer something larger than .22 caliber for a defensive firearm.

Don't know what the samurais wore myself, but one thing I do know is that bamboo is some tough stuff. Tough enough to deflect a .223 round I don't know, but I wouldn't be too surprised.

Let me ring in with my opinion since I started the post.I would personally prefer the shotgun with slugs and buckshot myself and try to escape.I think that I could drop quite a few samauri from a distance with slugs and wound several with each single round of buckshot from a distance,and have no problem putting down each and every samauri I encounter from 10 yards or less with buckshot-that is if I am lucky enough to not be hit by arrows

The Japanese were master blacksmiths, who delt with steel. The katanas, and armor were steel. How would a samurai stop a steel sword that can easily slice through a torso, with bamboo armor?

I'm going to assume you know much more about the subject than I, but I think they probably tried their best not to get hit with the other guys sword.

I've had the opportunity to handle a high quality handmade samurai sword (not one of those stamped replicas) and must say the quality is downright sinful. I hear that even this type didn't compare to one of the originals.

Did you review those links? Do you have one that disagrees?

I thought it odd as well, given the legendary quality of their swords. I would imagine the use of iron and other materials for armor probably had something to do with the difficulty of processing raw materials into steel. If i recall correctly, iron is an element that can be mined, while steel is a compound that requires complicated processing using iron and coke and lots of heat. If i had only a limited quantity of steel, i would use it for my offensive weapons.

steel isn't that complicated, but of course when your trying to make it in a primitive environment (as you seem to be pointing out) yes, it can be very difficult. I believe steel was discovered in some cultures by accident.
