Give them versatile equipment - assault rifles and hummers, or the like. Or something general but appropriate to their skills, like GPMG's or SAWs for MARS. But don't leave them useless and defenseless when you only expect to use them when something had gone wrong.
I agree completely with Cosmicfish. A bolt hole costs considerable monies and is to be abandoned. Just the cost of recruiting a team member will run in the thousands, background checks, interviews, resume reading all that stuff costs time and money. Add the cost of training, which will be tens of thousands if not 100,000 or even more. To penny pinch on equipment makes no sense whatever.
