Dual Wielding

#1
What are your opinions on dual wielding as a valid technique for ranged combat? I have fired dual wielded pistols and uszis before and had mixed results.

Obviously you can't dual wield 2 rifles so it's mainly hand guns and the like that can be fired in each hand at relatively close range.

From my experience for "work" in the field ... at range ... a rifle is better (as long as it's not an SA80 rofl). But when storming a building or in tight spaces dual wielding is very beneficial. Lets look at the advantages of dual wielding:

Increased firepower
Can attack two different targets simultaneously
increased area in which you can attack
Looks seriously badass

As for the disadvantages:

Slightly less accuracy
Can waste ammo
Harder to quickly access your nades with the off hand

So what are your opinions? Should we start giving our troops dual Mac 10s or dual Browning pistols so that they can lay down some serious heat? or is it not worth the extra cost?

You started off as a resonable wah merchant but you've outstayed your time her with this user name.

The only thing I'd like to attack is the slapper whos clack you dropped out of.

Two Charlie G's, obviously with UGL's attached.

That or an 18 inch naval gun accompanied by a Phalanx or similar.

Oh, sorry I thought you were being serious.

A wah merchant, and not a very good one. Either that or a good troll...
