The M-16 would be superior, if chambered for a better round.

By better do you mean bigger and heavier? I think I read an article stating that due to improvements in marksmanship by US soldiers, the Army would rather have a weapon with bigger rounds that can stop an enemy with one round.

at least some soldiers are getting their expressed wish for a bigger round fulfilled: 6.8mm SPC review and "6.8x43mm SPC Cartridge for Urban Warfare CQB and Short-to-Medium-Range Sniping" and, from our good buddies at Barrett Arms, 6.8mm SPC Upper Receiver retrofit kits and rifles

"By better do you mean bigger and heavier?"

Basically, yes.

My buddies are clammoring to get on the list for a shotgun.

Haji covers himself up with body armor and the local Yellow pages and a man hole cover while driving his suicide car. He needs to die instantly.

Save issue with the 9mm, IMHO. The .40 or .45 would have been a much better choice.
