On a good day it's better, on a baad day it's on par.
Post some sick Armor
Anyone here sleep fully clothed? The only thing I don't have is my boots on. The way I figure, I can be ready to operate within seconds even from deep sleep.
How does /k/ sleep?
Either way, goodnight /k/.
I've been doing it that way since high school. My sleep cycle is always fucked so the need to get up and go at a moment's notice has been pretty important.
The whole bedtime routine takes way too long anyway.
So my old shooting spot just got sold. I shot my first gun there, and many after that. So where do I go now? I just bought and sks and I can't find any outdoor ranges for rifles! I'm not looking to join a club, I just don't want to contribute a day out of my week just so I can go shooting a few times a month. Most of my friends don't shoot very often and I don't know anyone in a club, so I don't have a connection. I don't want to go somewhere to make friends, I just wanna feed my god damn funs! All I want is a bench to shoot my sks without...

Is there even a particular AR15 brand parts that actually won't break in half and would actually hold up together and not just a range toy?
I just want to know what parts to get that won't break down or jam up or will require me to pay again and replace the part after 6000 rounds for example
Let's start a thread dedicated to military technology reclaimed by nature.
The Bismarck at its final resting place.
I found one that my father gave me.
>Not sure how good it is
So /k/, I'm getting a Ruger American Predator in 6.5 creedmoor. Long story short I'm in commiefornia so no leaded ammo for hunting, all lead free ammo is expensive so I might as well go for 6.5 creedmoor. I can't afford a more expensive rifle because I have to spend so much on ammo no matter what calibre I choose.
My question is what are the best scopes and scope mounts for this set up and for the money?
My price range is $100 give or take $50.
I put that extra shit at the beginning in there because when I originally posted a thread about this rifle in this calibre it devolved into people asking me why I would buy a budget rifle in an expensive calibre.
>I can't afford a more expensive rifle because I have to spend so much on ammo no matter what calibre I choose.
Er..just don't shoot as much? One box should get you through a season if you're not a nitwit.
Let me put it this way.
I have a budget of about $700 for a new hunting setup.
The gun is gonna be at least $450 after shipping, taxes, and the FFL fee. So I'll be safe and call it $500. A good scope will most likely costs me at least about $125 after shipping and taxes. so that leaves me with $75 dollars. not a lot of wiggle room when a 20 round box costs $50.
have you ever seen Planet of the Apes?
it has the Charleton Heston in it and he was really activated.
The people in charge are anti-gun. The rest of the folks, not so much. I stopped in to my local gun store a bit after that San Bernadino shooting, and not only was it packed but the owner told me they had more than 40 pickup that day, and more to come.
What are some youtube channels you guys enjoy?
Here's what I've got subbed right now:
CarniK Con (get well soon)
Daily Military Defense & Archive
Miculek.com- The Leaders in Gun Control!
Bad taste, shilling, and drama aside, any channels you think not many people have heard of? I'm starving for content.
This thread was brought to you by STI, Federal Premium, and Bud's Gun Shop.
TiborasaurusRex is great for anyone wanting to get into long-range shooting. He has a "tutorial" series that's like 90 videos long or something. He also posts a lot of religious videos but just watch what interests you and skip what doesn't.
Dad has happened into a lot of old ammo over the years and he gave me a few boxes of 7.62x51 from Korea and Vietnam.
Does /k/ think it will actually chamber, fire, and extract?
So long as it's not overly corroded it'll be fine. Check the primers and be sure the bullets are still seated securely. I've shot 1933 made .303 surplus which was heavily tarnished and it worked fine.
>Best SxS shotgun under $1,000?
I'm looking for a good "field" double 12g, full length (26"-28" barrels), internal hammers, interchangeable chokes and straight or p.o.w. grip.
I currently like the CZ Bobwhite but I'm open to other suggestions.
Frankly, it's either the CZ or getting a good deal on a used shottie on consignment. Which I did. The shotgun in your OP pic is a Sauer Royal. I bought mine for $600 in a hock shop in Silicon Valley as a 30th Bday present to myself.
There *are* those big clubby EA imports, but I don't think they would make you happy. The CZ looks like a nice trim old-fashioned gun with all the features you are looking for.
Can we have a thread about US Special Operations?
Pictures, stories, book recs, etc. welcome. Would especially be interested in Special Forces and Rangers.
This is a pretty good book about the Special Forces team that supported Hamid Karzai during the initial invasion of Afghanistan. Includes an account of some very demoralizing friendly fire though.
Forums: QP, socnet, shadowspear
Books: get selected!, chosen soldier. I haven't read the other ones that chronicle actual experience in field (lions of kandahar, gentlemen bastards, the only thing worth dying for, etc.) but I'm sure those could give some more insight. I can recommend the two that I did read though, for the prospective candidate or people just interested in it.
I was thinking of getting some kind of Kalashnikov style rifle, my only real concern is price. Was thinking in the 500USD range. Would that even be possible?
Someone just offered me this Lorcin 380 for $250. I've heard a lot of bad things about this gun before. Does anyone have personal experiences with this? Can I fix the double feed issues it apparently has? Is it easy to tear down? Or should I really just completely avoid it?
I figure it's only $250 so wouldn't matter anyways and I'd only be adding experience by trying it out. Thoughts?
I have a bryco .380. Same ergonomics, same quality. It shoots, gives you slide bite because it's for midget hands, and it doesn't always like hollow points. I got mine for 110 back before shooting theaters and schools was hip and kids didn't visibly identify as retards.
