Default Would this be a good combination for a shooty HQ?

hello! just two questios for you:

first of all is it possible to have two apothecaries in a command squad thanks to that funny chapter trait? and what is the benefit? two ignore wounds?

And secondly, if this is applicable, would this be a good way to equip a shooty orientated command squad:

7 marines, 2 with heavy bolters, veteran sergeant with narthecium, reductor, bolt pistol, power fist, apothacary, champion.

Don't know how many points it is...

Limited to veteran or tactical squads.

EDIT: the apothecary for a sergeant.

I see.

So the above, minus the apothecary Sgt. then.

If it's meant to be shooty, why give the sergeant a bolt pistol when you can give him a plasma pistol?

Yeah, that would make a difference.

Personally, I've always thought that the ultimate shooty HQ would be a Techmarine with a full retinue of gun servitors, but that's just me. You wouldn't get any kind of a leadership bonus that way either.
