Could you carry a SAW as a primary and a M4 on your back as the secondary?
Pistol , or very small SMG like a MP7 , something for self defense should your gun go down.
Humping a MG and a rifle is not necessary.
Most guys who run MGs tend to bring a rifle as back up if the gun goes down. But it's left in the SZ or the FOB.
