Is anyone on here cross eye dominant? What do you do to compensate for it with hand guns?
3 of the last 5 people Ive taught to shoot ended up being cross eye. Its not such a big deal for handguns because you can adjust your head behind the sights. But for rifles you just need to bite the bullet and learn to shoot leftie because of stocks.
I'm about to get into reloading, going to start off with this Lee 50th anniversary press.
Recommended dies (cheap but good)?
I'm planning on reloading: .223, .357Sig, .308
When it comes to reloading .223/5.56 or .308/7.62, what's different?

I bought a similar kit from Lee. Wish I hadn't.
The press is decent.
Powder measure is shit.
Scale is beyond shit.
I would buy a press, powder measure and quality digital scale all separately, as well as all the small, little ancillary stuff you will need.
That kit will get you started. But within a year you will have replaced 75% of it.

5.56 isn't great (still better than 7.62x39 overall) with SS109. It's fucking awesome with good ammo.
Britain is hilarious.

What should I get as my next rimfire rifle?
I have a 10/22 with techsights and a henry lever 22lr.
I want either a marlin 60 or a Ruger American Rimfire.
Probably will scope both.
Which should I get?
heres what RAR looks like.
I really like the history and wood/steel on model 60s. But I already have a semi auto. I have always wanted a model 60 though since I started shooting but couldnt find one 3 years ago when I first started.
10 guns later I kinda want one.
For the ruger It takes same mags as my 10/22 and has irons which is nice backup till I buy a scope.
If I was to spend 300 or so bucks what would be a decent substitute 180ish bolt action so I could just get a model 60 and a bolt action?
Or do you think thats dumb?
I don't normally lurk /k/, (mostly /fit/ and /p/) but I had an easy question that Google isn't helping me with.
I really want either a 1903 or m1 garand.
Doesn't matter the brand as long as its new (assuming somebody still makes them)
Also, which is better and what brand is best...?
>Pic related is my baby
Hit up the CMP while they still have garands. Hell I don't even know if they do anymore desu.
I got a 1943 Springfield a few years back.
Do you want a bolt action or semi auto? That should make your decision easier.
Be aware of low serial numbered 1903 rifles. I got a rifle manufactured around 1912 or so, I never took it shooting due to fear of the receiver exploding so I ended up selling it. Probably would have been fine but I figured not to risky my pretty face. Still looking for a good deal on a 1903a3
I'd go with the garand. They're pretty cheap from the CMP and a ton of fun to shoot. You can get a field grade for $640 or a service grade for $740.
Pic related, best $740 I've ever spent in my life.
you have to go through a song and dance to be able to order from them, but when you can, get 10 of the 1911 mags, and an m1 garand. the garand collector's association is one of the cheapest clubs you can join to satisfy their club requirement.
My girlfriend wants to get her conceal carry and a hand gun. I'm a xd9 owner and love my gun she has shot it but it's a bit to big for her hands. Took her to the store today had her hold a few guns (px4 9mm, beretta Nano, glock 26, xd mod 2, xds, and the ruger lc9) she's torn between the lc9 and the xds both she likes both fit her hands well. What does /k think?
Beretta Tomcat in .32acp ?
1 don't get the nano. You have to slam the hell out of the mags to get them in, and the fit and finish isn't worth the money.
I don't really like the grips on any of the springfields. They are like grabbing a handful of legos.
Have you looked at the shield by smith and wesson? I love mine, it's small, comfortable in your hands, and priced really well.
Note: this is NOT /thg/
Since we're so obsessed with flinging shit over which tank was the "best" in WW2, Let's see how'd you do if you were told to design a tank.

German stubby 75mm gun
Early T-34 turret
Hull from a Bob simple
Transmission from the Tiger P/ Elefant/ Ferdinand
Which is the best move for someone with 10 years?
Do it, get VA and retirement after another 10 years. Let's say you retire as an E8. 50% of that will be around $2500 after taxes with inflation. And let's say you're not a faggot and you're infantry. With 10 years in, I'd say you may have deployed maybe 3 times in country, again if you aren't a faggot. So with all injuries associated with the infantry, such as hearing loss, bad knees/ back, sleep apnea, PTSD, STD's, etc., it's safe to assume you may receive either 70-100% VA...

Do AK's ever jam?
Hey kommandos, what's best semi auto shotgun for home defense?
Particularly in the bang for the buck department. I am not a poorfag, but I don't want to spend 2k on a shotgun either.
You already posted a picture of it
>capacity up to 12rd
>can shoot 3 inch shells easily
>can shoot 2.75 shells easily
And I managed to squeak one in when they still had folders on them which is a plus, eve though I never use it
You are given $2,000 out of nowhere to spend on guns or anything firearm related.
What do you do?
>buy and sbr an mp5 clone
>or convert my sgl31 into an ak105

Do you answer your door with a gun in your hand? How wise would this be?
When do you grab your weapon if your hear a disturbance outside? Is it legal to carry your weapon outside?
I live in kindof a rough part of town and also my apartment door is pretty much right off the street and lives into my living room. Am I allowed to carry my firearm outside or wherever I want so long as i don't point it at anyone?
Concealed carry bro. Don't just sperg out with a gun in your hand because the UPS guy is dropping off junk you ordered from Amazon.
Pic very related.
Why so much hate on cross draw vests. They have a negative connotation for some reason. I don't see why. They're generally really reliable and give you the space to store what you need. Personally I prefer it to the harnesses. Especially this ones left side is entirely customizable [which is usually the negative about them].
Because they don't cost 600 dollars. Get some armor to go underneath, IIIA vest for that RAINBOW look or a slick plate carrier with IV plates in it. If you get one with a holster you can remove, stick it on the belt and put the extra mags where it used to be. When I ran one, I used the right most magazine pouch that could not possibly be reached with my off hand and stuck an IFAK in there.
Would these cylinder sleeves be OK to shoot at? Thinking of hanging them on a chain. Also other fun stuff to shoot at thread.
I actually found this cheap swing set recently, going to buy it and hang a gong off it
Going to look....interesting at the range :D
