My family is getting me a rifle for /k/hristmas, and we need to decide what kind to get.
Does /k/ have some recommendations for a good, low-to-mid price hunting rifle?
why weren't drugs weaponized yet?
Should I build or buy an ar-10?
California resident here, planning on living here for the next 5 years or so. Thinking of becoming a first time gun owner. I know California has a reputation for being shitty to legal gun owners. What are my best options? Interested in whatever is my best choice for home defense on a budget of let's say, $500. Is a handgun the way to go? I've never even shot a gun before. Do you need to go through the same sort of checking processes to simply try it out at a range as buying a gun?
With $500 you could get a decent handgun, although you'll want to increase that budget to closer to $600 to be able to afford something new at a gun shop.
You do not have to go through a background check to rent a gun, but some places will not rent to you if you are alone.
I can't keep track of all the ridiculous shit you have to do in california any more to make a purchase, but I would recommend and 870 or 500 if you're going to have just one gun. If you decide to go handgun I'd recommend a 1911, there's lots of great options for HD out there but since anything you would have in CA would be neutered you might as well stick with those recommendations.
You can't always be there for them. How prepared is your family for an active shooter threat when you're not there? Do they know how to stay alert? Can they defend themselves if need be? Do they know how to take evasive actions? You may lug around 10lbs of edc each day, but you still risk losing much more than your own life if you don't take the initiative to teach them these things. Discuss.
How far away are we from small autonomous combat drones? Considering the pace of development of civilian rotor drones and of navigating AI seems like it should be too long: cram the brains/sensors of a self-driving car into a quadcopter and stick a gun on it.
Seems like the ISIS problem, for example, would be pretty quickly sorted with technology like that.
You don't need an "AI" that can pass the touring test. You just need one that can navigate around without running into stuff, and identify stuff and people (so it knows what to shoot and what not to shoot).
Seems self-driving cars are pretty much there already. It's a matter of miniaturization at this point.
The problem is that a self driving car doesn't have to decide who dies. The navigation systems and such are well developed, but I'm not sure how well they can function without God uplink since that can be jammed (though probably not by Isis at the moment)
Autonomous drones would have to rely on far far better target identification tech than we have now, and at least in the US, they probably would have to check with operators before doing anything.
why isn't 6.5 Grendel more popular
it is super easy to convert a 7.62x39 AK into a 6.5 Grendel AK
The latest firearm invention patented by the media is that a bullet button converts a rifle from semi-auto to full auto.
What other game changing innovations have come from the media?
I was thinking about getting into some archery sports.
What should I know before buying my 1st bow ?
Also, some training tips will be welcome.
Can /k/ make their own reamers, drill bits, tools for boring? I want to make firearm barrels
Thoughts on this?
Any Uboat fans here? Tell me why you like this weapon.
Did dazzle camo actually help anything? It seems too weird to be actually useful.
As far as I know, yes. The idea is it breaks up your outline, makes you harder to see and target. They stopped using it once radar and spotter planes became a thing. Since it doesn't help with those.
Lets say i go from a nogunz country to the states and i decide florida.
How good are Florida's gun laws compared to elsewhere in USA?
'breddy good, no incendiary ammo and a few counties have some minor issues with private party transactions but it's mostly stuff you won't run into. they want fingerprints for a concealed carry permit, i'm a little salty about that. high crime too so you may even need to use your gun.
the M81 Woodland is the perfect camo pattern, Prove me wrong
It makes you look like an ass in public.
Not if you're wearing G3 Combat Pants, nerd
