It was always funny when inspecting an arms room to see the number of private purchase shotguns that were stored there. It always seemed that just about every vehicle commander intended to carry one, just in case.
Might add that as a note but I did try to avoid non-US.

Completely different policy here! Our QM would have a fit if he saw that!
