Two with M-16s and one with an MPK. All not very jovial looking, all looking for Osama.

    M16 are assault rifles usually carried by soldiers. They are restricted weapons so basically any security company can't just buy M16s just like that without the proper documents.

    These days, internal security forces are carrying HK-MP5s. These are smaller calibre submachine guns. Fast and deadly.

    And no, u dun have to be a violent person to know abt weapons. Just read more.
    Yeah, I think it was shotgun, strange name, implies that a gun is to shoot.........., let me ask him next time :-), it was about 80cm long, I have seen longer ones I think. Maybe with two holes, diameter about a Copal 0 shutter.......

    And I have better things to read than about guns :-)

    Talking about guns, just watched how the US police and army are deploying to search for people who stay put in their houses............as if they are looking for criminals, pointing their guns when someone opens the door........and not water pistols! I don't think they would take that joke lightly with so much water lately in their neighbourhood! :-)

    Talk about weapons proliferation in the US, even the army and police are not safe amymore in these circumstances!

    Should tell your Sergeant that the word "gun" is a generic word for these firearms :P

    That how we learn to tell what the different between a rifle and a gun.

    Btw, DCA can you stop reading my mind?

    How do you know?......

    this reminds me of this older (western) man whom I met several times in the groundfloor toilet at the City Hall shopping center, and who keeps looking sideways while we are peeing........makes me nervous too! Guns always makes me nervous, except my own.......

    I was carrying the money. I was shocked when I saw Hong Sien. I signaled the guard to brandish the gun. What a rough day.

    Haha.....btw wat uniform do they wear in hk? Heard they have like a multitude of colours or something...

    And while Singaporeans here think MP5s are a tad too much when SOC troopers tot them in their jalan jalan down orchard road, HKers dont seem to find it an issue having their airport police having the same equipment, and their security guards with rifles like these! Imagine the reaction here should the CISCO come armed with M16s when loading the atm here?
