I just went and applied/interviewed for my CHL on Wednesday here in Oregon.
Ask me anything
What would you name your online retail firearms and firearms accessory business?
Just got my first bolt action .22lr
Anyone else own a CZ .22? Anyone here shoot .22 competitively or at a high level recreationaly that can give tips?
Not dicking around with suspenseful unboxing BS, just showing how it's packaged
Got a Cadwell bipod with the adjustable tilt for it.
What are good beginner rifles in calibers other than .22?
How effective is the unconventional warfare practiced by US Army SF?
From what I've read, there is a lot of corruption, backstabbing, and incompetence, with some success stories mixed in. Very rarely are the men they train any good because of culture differences. You can't shake off a people's laziness or general lack of attention to detail with only a few weeks or months of training. There are just some things that need to be ingrained in cultures for them to be effective soldiers.
Thursday night ATF
Judging my taste from my collection what should I get next?
Thinking a hand gun or something semi auto.
Can someone explain to me what that thing is/used for?
380-500 bucks for a norinco 97, good idea? I'm not sure how much to pay for a shotgun.
Anyone else have fun stuff in NFA jail?
When I sent in my form 4 I thought "eh, its just a wait until november or december.. it will be like an early x-mas present!"
Here I am 2 weeks later whimpering like a puppy.
Sent mine in around the same time. Using the waiting period to get some gear and a glorious fnx 45 so I can put another suppressor in jail.
Easier said than done!
Everytime I finger fuck my firearms I think:
>"Dis 1911 will be even better with the suppressor"
>"I wonder what poi shift I will have with this tikka using my suppressor?"
>"Good thing I can get 3-lug mounts for my M1A and my ARs, quick detach is gonna be so cool"
Christmas cant come soon enough. I have a kid on the way. So this was my last chance for...

Is it possible to replicate this firearm IRL, and if so, how would this most easily be accomplished?
What's /k/'s take on caseless ammo?
is it the wave of the future or is it too impractical to really gain traction?
It's great for saving weight which is becoming more and more of an issue (thus the development focus on exoskeletons), but due to it not being "backwards compatible" and it not being Nato standard it is unlikely that any western nation will adopt it as its standard ammunition anytime soon.
I don't think anybody has complete nailed it yet. The ammo is usually fragile or cooks off more easily. LSAT project is working on it so hopefully we'll have something. But if a company releases more weight/space-efficienct powder propellant before caseless ammo kicks off you can bet that caseless will be delayed for a few more decades
Lets get a WWII thread going
My Great Uncle(grandfathers brother) died today at a 100 years old he would have been 101 in a week and a half. He Fought in the pacific and his brother(my grandfather) fought in Europe. My grandfather died in the 60s long before i could meet him, so my uncle was the closest thing i had to a grandpa on that side of the family. I want to honor him to day.
My grandfather had his legs shot off by a machine gun and came home in wheel chair, he had a heart attack in his sleep and died. It was attributed to PTSD.
Alright /k/, I've been planning on building an AR out of an 80% lower for a long time, and now seems to be the best time to do it just in case the libs get their way.
So I ask - should I chamber it in .223 or .308? What are advantages and drawbacks of each? Beyond the obvious cost, recoil, etc. Either way, I'd build the rest of the rifle around the lower with consideration of caliber. Would be used mostly for hog hunting/producing liberal tears. Wouldn't shoot at the range too terribly much, so cost of ammo isn't of concern to me.
I'm a teacher in the US. If teachers were to carry guns, what do you think should be the standard carry?
I'm leaning towards some sort of snub nose. Maybe J Frame. Revolvers can sit forever and be ready to fire.
