I have read and many articles,watched many videos and heard many stories about it.So now I'm wondering:How many American knows how to operate and maintain foreing weapons(Foreing=Weapons in use in other countries by the police and the military)?How many of us would be able to pick up an enemy/criminal weapon effectively operate and, if necessary, maintain it while in combat/on duty/in service? They often say that "American guys don't know anything about foreing weapons and rely only on the American ones".Is it false or true? The most common weapons were and are: -AKM and its derivatives(Assault rifles) -FAL -G3 -G36 -FAMAS -F2000 -VEPR -GALIL -AK74 and its derivatives(assault rifles) -PKM series -RPD -SKS -MG3 -HK MP5 -RK 62 -RPG -Dragunov -Zastava M76 -SIG 556 -UZI(Standard, Mini and micro) -Steyr AUG -Vz. 61 skorpion -Vz. 58 -Sten -Bren -Smle -Mauser 98 & 24 -Luger -Mauser C96 -Mosin Nagant -Sterling SMG -SA 80 For those who are wondering what I mean with "effectively operate and maintain". 1)BASIC KNOWLEDGE The shooter is able to aim,shoot, reload(standard reload) and to fix a malfunction(missfeeding, double feed, missfiring, ejection failure,etc) but is not really sure about what he is doing 2)STANDARD KNOWLEDGE The shooter is able to aim, shoot, reload(at least standard reloads), fix a malfunction, clean the weapon as it would be the standard service rifle. 3)ADVANCED KNOWLEDGE The shooter is able to aim, shoot, reload(Standard,tactical, emergency), fix a malfunction, clean the weapon as fast and so confidently as a SPECOPS specialist.He knows every secret about the weapon he is using-including how to take advantage from it while abusing it(using it in an uncommon way). 4)THE "GOD OF WAR" it doesn't matters whay you put in his hand-he knows how to use the majority of the weapons aroung the world.He was trained by several specialist from USMC, Spetnaz,Mossad,etc.If it exists, he knows how to use it or will quickly figure out how to use it.
