Hello and welcome to the site! For me it would be the M16A1, the M16A2, the 1911A1, the M79, and the M60 GPMG.

I was lucky to pull the triggers of many big bore weapons....60mm, 88mm, M60A3, M109 Self-propelled Howitzer, and M1 Abrams. Had quite a few MOS's over 25 years.

Being a mounted warrior, my weapon(s) platform carried me.

Primary, 120MM smooth bore, M256.
1st alternate; Cal .50 M2
2/3rd alternates M240s, 7.62 NATO.

In my early days I was honored to carry an ancient M1911. But as modernization came along, so did the M9. During the latter part, we did finally qualify with M4 as the carbines were originally created for us anyway. Never shot it other than qualification range.
Now the M1028 canister round, that'll clear a grunt squad in 1/2 a second flat!

In 1978-83 the Air Force had us qualify with M-16 and 38 special.

my weapon of assignment in the AF was an F-106, actually 28 of them. the actual small arms that we used to deliver the boom were 2 AIM 4C's and 2 AIM 4G's, and the MB-1 Genie.

Plane did Mach 2.6, weapons did over Mach 3, just so they would get out of the planes way when they were launched.

BTW, THEY DIDNT TRUST US WITH GUNS, TOO MANY NUKES AROUND. LOL

Not sure which one you were crewing...

M14, M16 (tecnically an XM16E2), M60, M79, M2 BMG, but since I was artillery my major weapon was an M101A1 105mm howitzer and then I transferred to Forward Observer and my major weapon was an AN-PRC 25 radio (after all, my job was to call in artillery fire).

Navy 1911 in port, at sea F-14's and a couple French Mirages. I didn't fly 'em but did air intercept (dogfight) control.
Lots of memories.

Actually, pushing the button to drop the bombs! The B52 is, after all, a weapons system!

Sure looks like a lot of buttons to me... besides the gunner gets to use the cool trackball from his station.
