Best of /k/ thread?
Anyone have the full screencap of the original KS-23 circlejerk?
>silver is slightly less dense than lead
>harder than lead but less hard than copper: still accepts rifling.
>not so hard that it is considered "armor piercing" by law
Don't these factors make silver an excellent metal for hunting bullets? It performs similarly to conventional bullets but you're not poisoning your meat with cancer-causing lead which is more likely to fragment and get everywhere.
How effective would this mag be in a chimp out type shtf scenario?
Classmate of mine just got her tribe money and wants to get a real semi-auto rifle. She has had an old 20ga and LCP her dad gave her for home defense, but she says she wants to step up and get something like an AR.
She's pretty average size for a girl, shorter arms and about 5'7", and she wanted something to start with iron sights and hone the fundamentals of riflemanship, so I figured a true blue (sans F/A) XM16A1 build, since the shorter A1 stock would probably fit her length of pull better. What does /k/ think?
Complete parts list from Fulton...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
holy fuck you autist why the fuck would you just use a collapsible stock? you damn well she didnt say a fucking think about honing her skills and iron sights. youre just projecting your /k/ noob may mays onto her
My steyr s9a1 won't eject an unfired bullet or car without the mag in and will not chamber a round if I open the slide and drop the round into the chamber.
Why? My glock does all these things. I don't understand.
Different extractor design... Running over a cartridge probably isn't the best for normal spring type extractor... Slide the cartridge up the breech face and under the extractor before releasing the slide.
Talk me out of liking dissipators.
Has anyone else been kicked out of a range for placing shots too quickly or is this just a British thing?
>tfw live in communist Massachusetts

>other than the old guys who run Trap Sundays
>mfw going on /k/ and reading range stories
A rather odd result from a wargame I was playing last evening has prompted me to ask:
How long would the Japanese Carrier Akagi have held up to 8 inch guns from a pair of New Orleans class cruisers? What, if anything could it have done to defend itself if it didn't launch planes until it was already under attack?
Of all carriers in ww2 it would probably be one of the better ones off, it was built on an old battlecrusier hull and retained I think 8 7.9in guns in casements.
But the only real chance it would have would be to run away asap, have all its destroyers charge the crusiers and try and get some planes in the air. Without a seriously armoured flight deck, even a single hit could fuck it up
Actually it had all of its antiship armament removed - the biggest guns it carried were 25mm guns.
A more interesting scenario would be seeing Lexington or Saratoga get into a gun battle with a cruiser.
Got a hand guard/ rail with some sharp corners. I don't want to mess up the anodizing too bad, but should I try fine sand paper, Emory cloth, scotch brite? A file?
Beretta 92fs for 650 dollars. yes or no? can i do better?
What are some good steel full size pistols?
Buyer's Assistance Thread
Just an idea to help each other out with purchases on things we want, but don't necessarily know a lot about.
In this case an AK74 found on armslist- pic related. The guy wants $950. Is it worth it /k/? I want an AK model rifle really badly.
Depends, are you in MA?
Sar 2's are unicorn rifles in my experience, and usually come with some trigger slap and sometimes canted sights, ask the guy about either of those but remember 98 % of people on armslist are compulsive liars.
/k/omrades I need help.
We're doing practice qualifications at the police Academy today.
My groupings turn to shit at 15-25 yards. I keep shooting low and to the left, until eventually at 25 yards I'm lucky to get it in the target area.
How do I fix this asap? I have a 45 usp but it's obviously something I'm doing wrong and probably not the gun.
So, /k/, I once read an opinion here that America was actually relatively close to winning in 'Nam, but the media shitstorm and anti-war movement caused a premature retreat from SE Asia.
It went along the lines that the Tet Offensive was a desperate final move by the North Vietnamese forces after guerrilla tactics depleted Viet Cong manpower.
Is there any validity to this? How much longer would it have taken if we didn't bitch out? How would it have changed the world stage?
Why do that if we'd already sunk such a great cost (capital and human life) into the war? Especially if that would hurt U.S. image abroad.
I wouldn't, but i do think things are a lot more complicated than durrrrr murica lost vietnam, nixon was a retard
Any TNPers here?
I like nutnfancy. Yes, some of his ideas are a bit goofy, but he takes the longest time testing a firearm out of any other gun reviewer before making a video and I can appreciate that.
