General rule of thumb for me:

If they have the courtesy to ask me if they can use my gun, they pretty much can use it.

If they just reach for it - I have no idea who you are - then we have a problem.

Let me rephrase my original statement: He was a random guy from out of town that I had just met after giving him some covering fire.

I've been bouncing around the ideal of assistant machinegunners. When the machinegunner gets hit the assistant takes over.

If you can trust your teammates, every rifleman can be trained to operate the SAW keeping it in play longer. If I recall the US army trains squads to revolve around and keep the SAW up as long as possible.

That´s what we do in my squad, the saw needs to run no mather what

Depends If I know the guy. Ive have had given mags to teammates who have run out of ammo, just for them losing my freaking mag minutes later, and then not even having the courtesy of trying to find it. Happened with one of my pricey p-mags, fuck that shit lol

Use it if there is no game ammo limit per player.

I would say that the spirit of "dead men tell no tales" is that dead players do not reveal or discuss tactical information their team mates. If someone wants to cry about someone asking to borrow my rifle (while dead) and I hand it to them, they can cry for all I care. Dead men laugh at crybabies.

I've grabbed the boss' m60 twice now while he was being healed during our vietnam games. Never bothered to ask, just figured he didn't mind. Those were the only 2 times i used a saw, I want one now.

Grabbing an unknown persons riffle, saw or even pistol is an obvious no go in my books.

They have us surrounded, those poor bastards...

Fuck the whales save a 2 stroke.

If it is people/a person that i am familiar with/have seen around before at the game, and i have a good impression of them (ie they ain't gonna be hi-tailing it to the cars to take off with it, or wack it up against a tree baseball-bat style on purpose), borrow away.

Heck, i've still been alive, but seen a person that is much more combat effective than i am, experiencing gun troubles.. and handed off my primary to them to keep the wolves at bay.

I always bring a back-up rifle to the field with me.. rarely is it myself, that has used it. Some of my guns have more mileage in other peoples hands, than my own.

But then, i'm naively trusting in that way. Not been stung, yet..

Two opposing quotes come to mind
"From my cold dead hands" & "Pass the Torch"
I can see the logic in wanting to get the Sniper or the SAW back into action right away.
However Both specialized Items are a bitch to keep running correctly and prone to quirks both from the gun and the owners. If shit goes bad you could find yourself on the hook for a cash payment or a stigma that lasts well past the Glory of the game.
I don't think there's a 'standard' that applies outside of the Fundamental of 'Good Sportsmanship' that's a core value in this hobby.

I only ever handed a weapon off once.

I wasn't dead & neither was he. His gun was down and he said "quick give me your rifle; I know where they are". Since this was during a large objective based Film-sim I passed it over.

He proceeded to weld down his trigger finger in full auto; dry firing for about a minute. Then it stopped. He looked at me and said "you don't use hi-caps" handed it back and ran off.

That was also the last time I handed off a weapon.
