Oh, the dear dear irony. AR-15 rifles for FSP - #28 by Lidels
Anyways, hello all. I’ve been meaning to make this thread for some time now, but I sort of forgot about everything after my termination from DHS.
The M870 is a great weapon for breaching and other uses that do not include self defense, but it’s time for it to go. Given the fast pace of gunfights, accuracy (among other things) is a determining factor in victory. Given V2’s climate, it’s simply not the correct choice for “additional firepower”. Don’t take this as me writing off the M870, but it’s intended use, practical use, and actual use in v2 are all three completely different things - I’m sure we can all on that.
So – the M870 should be removed from patrol officers inventories, with the AR-15 taking their stead. The AR-15 is an example of one of V2’s most severely inaccurately represented rifles, with them being passed off as DMR’s or any category other than that by which it should be. The AR-15 in the real world will fire as fast as your finger can keep up, however that’s been far from the case since the weapon’s introduction into V2 up until now. With the proposed addition of the AR-15, I propose that it be buffed in firerate to a level that can keep up with a realistic semi automatic trigger mode.
If the AR-15 will be added after this suggestion without changes being done to the fire rate, please ignore my suggestion. This suggestion is only truly effective when fully implemented.
That’s it. No damage buffs, nothing of the sort. Now, onto debunking some of the counterarguments that “exist” regarding this matter.
1. Rifles will increase crossfire issues and general misuse overall.
Trigger discipline is a burden carried by the officer, not the weapon. There’s no legitimate argument that can prove that any type of weapon promotes or otherwise encourages any form of misuse.
2. Call a tactical team.
If you know a single criminal that will agree to your time out while you page your colleagues to outnumber him in firepower and physical numbers, please let me know. Go on, I’ll wait.
3. The M870 is fine.
Just “fine” and “acceptable” are two different things. If a weapon designed to serve as a reinforcement to your primary weapon is being outperformed by your primary weapon, then it is fundamentally useless.
I’ll be waiting for your [other] counter arguments down below.
