Funny after all these years you still hear comparisons with the M14 and M16/M4.  I believe ideally, they all have a place, meaning that a squad or platoon should have options on weapons.  I would take a M4 for house clearing and street fighting. The fact that I could have almost twice the amount of ammo for close range, is a big overriding factor for me.   I would take a M14 for primarily long shots.  Let the foot shoulder choose the weapon for the job.
