When your in the military, do you get to pick your gun?

Like if your a soldier, do you get any say in what type of gun you have. Like an LMG, SMG, or assualt riffel? Or even what kind of certain gun?

You get assigned standard weapons depending on your job (I'm not sure of the proper name for it) example riflemen would carry the standard issue rifle, snipers would be issued the standard sniper rifle while a pyro tech will probably carry just a hand gun or some lighter duty gun.

Call of Duty is just a game! You use what is issued to you. Usually depends on how good you shoot and how big you are, bigger people carry bigger weapons.

No, you will be assigned a weapon.

You mean weapons or rifles right? Your basic weapon is the M16A/A4. If you decide to be in the infantry, you may be assigned an M16 with M203. Or maybe a M249 SAW. In some other units, you may be asked to be the MK19 gunner. What do you want to be?
