I'm writing science fiction and I want to have some really original weaponry in it
blasters are cool but have been done a million times
lightsabers are cool but they are very specific
I also want it to have some western vibes with smuglers, but not to be so two sided like most
anyways, help me out with ideas?
So guys I like to ask what weapons would you use in a world if it was to suddenly turn into nothing but chaos?
What would your survival plans be abd how exactly will you proceed with your plans on survival?
I would hang out and eat canned food with a jetboil for as long as possible and watch anime until the electrical grid went down and then I would probably slowly wander from town to town on foot and steal food and emergency supplies
Pictures, videos, family stories, one guy spamming CCR music videos, everything Vietnam goes.
Starting off with a video documentary
>Helicopter Door Gunners: Training and combat
I never knew there was a whole separate school for door gunners.
Pretty sure M113 crewmen had the highest rate of casualties for vehicles.
>Hey guys, I just had a great idea
>What if, and jest stay with me here, what if we took something so under armored man portable MG's can blow through it, and we filled it with people before sending it into a low visibility mine and rocket infested jungle?
>Fuck man, what could go wrong?
Vietnam had the coolest fucking Operator guns.
>TFW all I want is a select fire stubby grip CAR15 607A with that useless suppressor muzzle device.
That gun would never stop being fun
>Alternate view, buttstock retracted with a full sized grip
How can white boys even compete?
Assuming you traveled back in time to the 1400's, would a recoiless rifle be the easiest bang/buck weapon to make with available materials for siege-work? The launcher is just some strong sheet metal and the round is just a warhead on top of a casing full of holes and propellant?
Sharps Rifle with falling block action and percussion caps. Shooting nitrated paper cartridges.
This is the best you could do with Renaissance material science and industry.
An entire Army with breech loading rifles, could allow any European power to take over all of Europe. Since they will be facing matchlocks, pikes, and halberds.
Hey there /k/.
I'm a normal homeowner, and don't really frequent this board often. I believe in home defense, and luckily so does the state I live in.
Texas introduced a law some time ago that presumes deadly force used within your home was justified, which is great. But outlying property such as your front lawn is not covered under this presumption.
I was watching this video:
And I realized that Bear Mace might be the solution.
It's not deadly, but would almost certainly stop multiple trespassers...

Are Electrolaser's right now still just massive things that'll never get scaled down to handgun sized? The concept sounds great compared to darted tasers if the lasers can be fired in a grid to cover a wide area, though it sounds rife for abuse by police/criminals/trolls.
I wanna buy a gun.
What do you recommend?
If I was looking for a gun I'd get one of these bad boys.
Hot stuff brah.
Has anyone in the enlisted corps actually gone on to do something of value? Especially non-SOF.
The officer corps is filled with success stories after they move on from the military. But the enlisted corps is filled with nothing but walking 11pm news stories, extremists, trailer park residents/hoodrats, and at best middle management.
Why is this? Is it a personnel quality issue? Any nation is fine.
How much shorter can service rifles get? Everybody is shifting towards using either bullpups or SBRs, and Israel is even taking it a step further by adopting a bullpup SBR as their standard rifle.
there was talk about armies switching to rpg's or similar airburst weapons due to urban warfare becoming more and more prominent, and service rifles becoming secondary weapons to protect rocketeers.
If that holds, we would see mp7 like things as sidearms, or maybe as underbarrels for grenade launchers
Does the Thunderchief deserve its bad reputation?
Nah. It just came in at a transition period where there were little tactics to deal with SAMs. At its role as a bomber it actually did quite well and excelled at what it was made for.
I wasn't aware it had a bad reputation, since the museum where I saw one had an old pilot who was pretty fond of the craft.
This sounds about right judging by the years of service.
Alright, I know this is a longshot, but I'm calling on the ghost of Meplat for some help.
I'm currently at a gun auction and have stumbled over what appears to be a old wells fargo shotgun.
All of these markings are on a Winchester 1887. We all know what that looks like. I've taken photos of any markings I could see on the shotgun instead.
Does anyone know anything about these, and if so, is this a fake? I need to know, as I intend on purchasing it very soon.
Dumping 4 pics.
Brass stamp on the grip area of the gun. I have higher resolution pictures it that helps anyone.
Other side of the stock, which apparently says
Is it legal to hunt quail with a mortar?
Will Mr ATF not like my homecooked venison?
Go for it
Send pics, name, address and social security, please
Alright /k/ommandos, I've been thinking about getting an AR-15. At first I thought building one would be the way to go. However, I've heard that the price gap between personal builds and factory builds has closed up quite a bit as of late. Buying a factory ready gun seems like the way to go for me. Question is, what is the best AR-15 on the market for the money?
Any left over money I have will go twards ammo and accessories.
My maximum price would be $1000 because the laws here in commiefornia add an extra $250 to that.
