Just curious, because some people are claiming that they are old weapons that wouldn't last two days in a real conflict.
Are infantry obsolete? Or are they still relevant?
The infantry will never be obsolete. It has already been claimed that they are, and by 'already' I mean it has been claimed after literally every war until about now when we have come to our senses.
This is a good book on the exact subject, the beginning is about the consequences of 'the infantry is obsolete' thinking.
>As University of North Carolina physicist Mark Gubrud told Defense One:
>The real limit is how much energy per shot you can deliver to the projectile and sabot without destroying the rails too fast. All that plasma that you see when the gun erupts, that's material from the rails and sabot being vaporized at the sliding contact, unlike a powder gun where the barrel isn't much eroded and the flame is from the propellant...

you know that the hypersonic shockwave and the air-trail alone behind the round will turn steel into paper, right?
Well /k/ when you go shooting do you prefer going alone or with friend(s)? Do you prefer going with friends and end up going alone? Or vice versa?
I always shoot with friends, but tomorrow will be my first time going alone. I need to improve my skills with my AR, my groupings are far too large for what I'm aiming for. What am i in for? Is it funner or boring alone? I'm going for the sole purpose of honing my skills.

I tend to shoot with friends. It can make the trip to the range more enjoyable (40ish min for me) and any down time at the range as well.
But it is nice to go alone every once and awhile. Especially if you have the range to yourself. You can shoot at your pace and no one is there to stop you.
Are the ATF really a bunch of jackbooted thugs? Or do they really mean well but they're just incompetent overall?
There was that time they rented a retail space, turned the retail space into an illegal gun store breaking the wall of the building and modifying the wiring to install cameras, then proceeded to have all the guns in the store, and their own full funs stored in their vehicle out front stolen with no camera footage of the theft. Then then refused to pay rent on the store, or pay for the damage they caused to the retail space when modifying the building for the sting because they are the law.

So I'm pretty set on buying myself a Palmetto PTAC Upper receiver and getting a mil spec Bolt Carrier Group and a Bravo company Ambidextrous Charging handle.
I hear a lot of negatives about the PTAC upper.
My Price range is about 550 for the rifle not including accessories.
Moving on to optics, I think I'm gonna get a Eotech 512, thoughts, /k/?
Is this real or is the slavshit firing blanks?
Audio version if that makes any difference.
I can't really tell since if this is in russia chechnya then it's plausible, but the smoke arising from the two could be detached grenade fuses.
I am looking for a left handed bolt action in 30-06 any recommendations
I have a recommendation. Start using your right hand.
Personally I enjoy air rifles, they're much cheaper to shoot and you can use them to practice marksmanship. But how does /k/ approach air rifles?
Rate my purchase /k/.
My first AR15
What do you recommend for attachments? I'm a novice when it comes to guns.
It popped up on slickguns and seemd like a good buy. I've been wanting a long gun for a while now.
pls dont bully me
Police departments don't need military equipment. Wearing a combat helmet is just provocative.
Yes. Peaked cap will do nicely. It's not like police officers would ever get shot at. Protective military equipment is for soldiers only, not for valor stealing cops.
What WWII era gun would you most like to own?

Does anyone hunt with a Mosin?
I'm thinking about doing Elk with a Mosin and I was wanting to know would it be worth it. I was either going to do that or a Savage Axis
I hunt with my mosin. It's just fine for it. I got some handloaded magnum rounds that will probably kill a bear.
If you're super poor, a mosin is better than a savage axis because you can at least use the iron sights and don't have to get some glass.
And we really need to update that picture.
Anyways can anyone recommend a decent pistol for under 250?
Single or double stack? I found a CZ52 for $150 it shoots 7.62x25 which isn't too bad to buy. It was kinda beat up but worked fine and you can also upgrade them with a better firing pin and rollers.
what ear protection does /k/ use?
