    Heavily armed means crew served weapon systems like the MK 19, M2, tow missles, AT 4, and at least an M1A2 Abrams. Or walking out your door next to Chuck Norris or Vlad Puttin depending on which corner of the world you currently reside.

    heavily armed to me reminds me of a scene from a mad max movie. i believe it was in thunderdome. he is asked by the gate keeper to remove his weapons. for a bout 3 minutes he throws various sawed off shotguns, old smith revolvers, pocket autos and various cutlery on the gatekeepers desk until there is a pile you couldnt fit in a 5 gal bucket. thats heavily armed!

    I guess I'd say having any repeating longarm counts as heavily-armed.

    Reminds me of those couple lines in The Green Berets, "says here you're a heavy weapons specialist" . . . "not if I can find any light ones . . ."

    Obviously, heavily armed is an AK-57 Uzi Radar Laser Triple-Barreled Double-Scoped Heat-Seeking Shotgun!

    Heavily armed is newspeak code for gun nut. Usually used in conjunction with "arsenal" and "stockpile".

    Example: you are pulled over on your way to the gun range. The news report would say;

    "Today the police stopped a heavily armed suspect who had an arsenal in the trunk of his vehicle as well as a large stockpile of ammunition."

    When in fact you had your ccw on your hip, two .22 rifles in the trunk and 500 rounds of CCI stingers...

    Browning 50 caliber M2 = Heavily Armed
    Anything less is just "well prepared"

    Come see me on one of my range trip days, and ask me then. Last time I got a speeding ticket the cop kinda glanced around in my truck bed and in the windows, and had a "I don't wanna know" look on his face. I'm sure he didn't want to deal with my arsenal by the roadside in the heat and hot sun.

    "Heavily Armed" is an ambiguous description used mostly by reporters and writers to add emphasis to their story and allows them not to have to go into any exacting detail. It instills the mind of the reader with whatever they imagine as being armed with superior or more arms than the ordinary that would inspire fear.

    In a traditional military usage a "Heavily Armed" force would be one that has artillery or heavy armor at their disposal.

    Some years ago I went to the Knob Creek shoot, and was amused to note that there were several pickup trucks in the parking lot with *two* .50s in the back, and one guy with a quad mount of .30s. Just sitting there where you could reach out and touch them.

    Some of those guys must SERIOUSLY dislike tailgaters...

    Armed = a .25acp Raven

    Heavily armed = a pair of .25acp Ravens with 15-round magazines.

    News speak:

    "heavily armed" = he had a gun

    "gun nut" = see above

    "arsenal" = he had more than one gun

    "high caliber" = anything more than a .22 rimfire

    "stockpile" = he had more than 1 box of ammo

    Language is great, it allows you to phrase anything anyway you want. For example, in a 2 car race, the loser "came in second place", while the winner "came in next to last". Both accurate, but distorted just the same.
