Which one should a guy have if he can only have one?
The Bump Stock ruling has pointed out the need for many Americans to have machine guns, because.... well... 'Merica! Many have said "If a Bump Stock is now a machine gun, we all may as well drill that third hole in our AR lowers." I am not ready to go there.
However, I have realized that the Dealer Sample provision does not get used nearly enough by NFA types.
I am considering going down that road to acquire a modern belt fed. So, my question is: Which one to start with? Between a M-240 and a M-249, which is the more versatile weapon?
Across a few categories of use, which would be the best fit for:
A. A squared away LE agency. What would a LE agency conceivably use a LMG or GPMG for? Is it for Over Watch from a BearCat? Over watch for high risk events? Remember, I have to plausibly demo this to somebody.
B. Rooftop Korean type work.
C. Knocking down E-types on the distance range 500-1000 yards.
D. Burning down pepper poppers during Outlaw 3 gun matches.
C. Burning down pigs from a helicopter or bait station.
