It just occurred to me that there are several rather large corporate mercenary organizations in the world.
>Academi (formerly Blackwater)
Why haven't any of them gone full Big Boss yet?
anybody have history with the SWFA SS 10x?
I was initially looking at a bushnell LRS 10x42 and most people said spend the extra bit of money on one of these
I'd like to hear /k/'s response before I cash out though
it will only be mounted on a Howa m1500 in .308 hence the cheaper optic and relatively low magnification because it's only a .308
honestly I first came across the idea of a fixed 10 from the movie Shooter because it's on his r700 (pic related)
I know a movie would be thinking what's cheapest and looks most tactical, but then I thought about it and realized a fixed 10 isnt a bad idea because you dont need to stress about FFP or SFP in a drastically cheaper yet still high quality level of glass
Do NOT buy from Bushnell; I'm telling you.
I've owned 4 of their products, both times they broke/factory defected, both times I got a replacement, both times they sent me slightly less fucked up versions. The cunt from the MAC had a bushnell scope and it wouldn't hold zero.
I had a BTR-1 and TRS25.
Do not buy from Bushnell. Literally anything else is a better choice.
Hey /k/, I'm looking for an open sight bolt-action in .223. The options I found so far are the CZ 527, Ruger Gunsite Scout, Savage Hog Hunter, Mossberg MVP. I'm leaning towards the Hog Hunter or the CZ. Are there any other good options avaiable. Which of the options I've found seem like the best choice?
The only thing I don't like about the Savage is the blind mag, but I could learn to like that. CZ is sexy. The Ruger looks good, but is also the most expensive. Mossberg takes AR mags.
I'm really torn.
There is one other option I know of, the Zastava M85 from J&G Sales:
It has a Mauser action, so its similar to the CZ which also has a Mauser action. However, the M85 has a fixed internal magazine where the CZ uses magazines. The M85 will probably be the cheapest option, though. Other than the above info, I have no other experience or knowledge of the M85.
How often do you fags clean your guns? After every shooting session, or every other one?
Depends how much I shoot, the quality of the ammo shot, and the firearms purpose (ccw, range beater, safe queen).
Unless it is an expensive gun or my carry weapon/shtf gun, I typically don't clean them after casual shooting. The consensus from many gunsmiths who I have talked to is that, constant rigorous cleaning of firearms will degrade them more than just letting them sit after being shot a casual amount.
Interesting, thanks for that anon. I have a .45, and when I go to the range I'll shoot like 100 rounds no problem. I'd imagine it's good to clean it after shooting that many rounds from a pistol?
Anyone else disgusted when a civvy walks by them without acknowledging my BDU camo and hat patches?
I fight to protect these worthless bags of meat and the least they could do is respect that.
If I spot a civvy alone somewhere, you better believe I'm sparking up a conversation about my patches. Why? Because I can.
Deal with it civvies.
Could /k/ assassinate a president? Since Reagan have there been any close calls that the public don't know about?
Secret service pls go.
Anyway, use a drone IED. Haven't you noticed how little he appears outside. When he does, he has plexiglass shields around him to thwart sniper fire. You would need advance notice of an outdoor event and get over the shields. Also, your drone needs to be low observable to radar and low noise but high yield. That is harder than it sounds.
Left-handed Fag here. Thoughts on good lefty handguns? I'd like an ambi-safety and a slide release on the right side. I've had my eye on a Walther PPQ or PPQM2 for awhile now.
General Left-hander Gun thread.
im not sinister, but im just saying that this is an interesting thread and maybe we should have a lefty general
Everyone who harps on about USA not having barrel-fired ATGM are terrified that they will actually try
everytime there is a gap like this, America actually tries and then blows the fuck out of russia or whoever the fuck things they can stand up to us
see: ATGM, America produces Javelin
see: Off-bore IR A2A, America produces Aim-9x
see: APS, America produces raytheon quick-kill
see: le-scary anti-shippig missiles, America produces LRASM
how long does this have to go on for?
I have a 3-12x50 optic collecting dust (came off of a 300WSM I sold a while back). I want to put an optic on my 10/22...
Should i slap that on the rifle and be done with it but risk looking like a mall ninja or should I buy something more appropriate?
Side note: I have parts coming for accurizing it so it will justify me buying a higher end optic if i do
I can't remember the term right now, but fullsize rifle scopes are calibrated for a basic longer range. In order to get a completely accurate .22 scope, it has to be designed for rimfire.
As soon as I remember the term I'll let you know.
Pic related, my ruger.
I figured as much..
Long haul i was looking at either a Nikon prostaff rimfire II, or the same P22 you have on yours. I've been trying to determine the real difference between them other than magnification.
Lets see some fruit salad new and old. The old timers... theirs isnt as big, but it a whole lot more impressive
I will say Goodnight Chesty before I leave for bed tonight
Good example of New vs Old. Chesty, the most decorated Marine in American history compared to Petraeus who had a nice career.
Notice a difference?
What do you think of this /k/?
Saw a couple of threads regarding the jet earlier but the posting server was down at the time.
1. Voice is artificial because I have a shit mic and it'd take 10x longer to produce the video.
2. Don't work for Lockheed or any of the companies working on the jet (and as if they'd give a shit about our opinion of the jet); I'm not even American; I'm just a military member of another nation that's also an aviation enthusiast.
How can the US or Europe even compete?
All weapons deactivated from April 2016 will have to be welded solid with no moving parts. Even pistols will be cut up inside and have their slides welded and even their magazines welded in place.
for the love of god does anyone know where I can get an lbv-88 in od green
