The best weapon is the one you have trained with and are most comfortable with. A professional soldier maintains his weapon so that it works in all conditions. And then itīs completely indifferent whether itīs a fully automatic rifel or a bow and arrow. It's the man that makes the difference - not the tool.
In a jungle you either get a patrol/instant contact or you're static waiting for a contact. Most patrol/instant contacts are fast and fleeting - snap shot, drop into kneel, repeat, drop to prone. The first round will be close, the second usually dead-on if you practice. The best weapon on point is a 12g pump.
