I.D. cards are for n00bs. Not ultra secret killing machines.

I didn't say anything about room clearing.

Complex outdoor environment, fields of fire from 10-200 meters, etc etc... E.g., convoy takes a hit, vehicle loses a wheel and we need to wait for recovery/casevac. Could happen in an urban environment, or in the middle of grape or pot fields. I'm looking for something that will let me very quickly and accurately engage threats in close, and still be effective at a longer distance when I'm out dismounted on a cordon.

In a pinch an unmagnified EOTech with 1MOA centre dot would still be fine- and you can get the ballistic reticles now that show drop at 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600. I just don't want to be stuck with a magnified optic, and I want something with faster acquisition than iron sights, so either an EOTech or an Aimpoint.

With any luck I'll never have to use it- but better to have and not need than need and not have. The scopes we use cause pretty awful tunnel vision.

room clearing's nothing with one of these

Once we clued in on the fact that life is finite, the thought of losing it didn't scare us anymore. The end comes no matter what, all that matters is how you wanna go out, on your feet or your knees?

You do realize that those things are illegal, right?

If the shotgun barrel is over 18.5 inches and the rifle doesn't go full auto or burst it should be fine. unless you live in California or New Jersey.

Who is going to mount a shotgun with a 18.5" barrel under a AR-15?

Can you verify this from information not coming from a recruiter.

From people that have been in the Navy.

Nobody seems to know about the Marine Corps Recon guys, they're pretty tough cookies.

My toy store, aka my friends gun shop, has one with a 20" barrel under it. it has to be the most poorly balanced monstrosity I have had the chance to examine. Mossberg and Remington sell 18.5"  for there shotguns. Bushmaster was/is (?) a M203 mock up that fired a single 12ga shell.  They called it a "flare launcher".

(Continuing the thread hijack)
If you're gonna get a "flare launcher", at least get a Cobray (or similar) 37mm under-barrel. Has the nice M203 appearance. Not all that expensive either, all things considered.
Then when you decide you want to 'upgrade' from smoke/flares, just fill out an ATF Form 1 and classify it as a "Destructive Device".

Well, either way, you are not getting a lot of use for either. lock busting with the 12ga and "illuminating" (yeah right!) a dark area.

Hard ass is actually supposed to be someone who's strict. But all the retards at school are acting like it's the same as bad ass and it's annoying as hell. And I hope you didn't pick that branch because you thought it was the most "bad ass" of them all.
