Can /k/ suggest any comfy operator films like 13 hours?
Sometime last year in Australia, we had a hostage situation, and in the ensuing firefight one of the hostage was killed by a stray bullet or ricochet, apparently because police were using 5.56. I this king of situation, would they be better served using slower heavier rounds, like .45, or 300 Blackout? Aren't there also lots of /k/mmandos who recommend short barrel carbines in 5.56 for HD, aren't you also worried about over penetration?
Considering .45 is about 3 times slower then 5.56 (according to Wikipedia), wouldn't you get less ricocheting from .45? Also couldn't you use full lead bullets to encourage squashing rather then bouncing, since the bad guy probably wasn't wearing a est?
Alright /k/ we have an emergency. Im 23, and want to join the muhreens. I met a recruiter, and on my day off I went and met up with him and his poolees, a bunch of high school kids joining. I out did about half of them physically, and the recruiters were impressed by that as well as my 90 asvab. Here's the problem, they said I'd be medically disqualified due to a varicose vein in my left testicle, they then told me to lie on the paperwork.
My vein is very noticeable, if I lie I'm sure it will get found at meps and am worried. Wtf do I do.
If you really want to do this, the best bet is to play dumb. If the doc at MEPS asks you, you don't know, but if he looks and you and finds it, then you know, and you can try to get it wavered.
Otherwise, I'd just start trying to get it wavered now. With something like that it isn't a big deal, but if you hide the fact that you had surgeries, big injuries, etc and lie about it, and you're caught later, you can get hemmed up in some bullshit especially if you put in for a security clearance.
Went to my lgs today and they had a type 99 on the rack for 275 USD. Bore looked good, crown looked good, action was solid. Chrysanthemum was removed. Stock has beat up but no More than I'd expect for old milsurp. My only concern was a Crack up near the muzzle on the handguard that had been glued. It felt solid but obviously that's a point of concern. I was thinking about buying it but I hear that ammo is expensive and hard to come by.
Also general Japanese WW2 Thread
Ammo is indeed expensive. That's a fair price for the rifle, based on the condition you've stated. The wood should be fine, though obviously the crack and subsequent repair aren't ideal.
Type 99 and 38, and Nambu 14 and 94 owner here.
You have to buy japsurp with the collecting mindset. Honestly, if you've shot one dubya two bolt action, you've shot them all. Yeah the action might be same, but they're all 30 cal bullets with a 50-55ishmm case and they're all going to feel the same once you pull the trigger.
The difference is in how the actions work, so with that in mind it's not a bad idea to buy an arisaka with the sole intent of just finger fucking it.
If you really want, you could spend over a buck a round once just to say you shot it, but I wouldn't head into japshit with the intention of shooting it honestly.
I bought the 99 and 38 for $90 each last year, because my Cabelas didn't know what the fuck they were other than that the barrels were shrekt and both the stocks were snapped in half and reglued (I guess a GI broke them to smuggle them easier). They're also totally not in shootable condition, but I'm getting all I want and that its to just look at them and work that bolt every so often. I even took the followers out of them.
You could reload for them, if you really wanted, but for the same time and cost you could reload for something more accurate or more fun to shoot, but to each his own.
Jap pistols are even harder to feed, but same principle.
tl;dr buy it if you would still be happy if it was a wall hanger.
Will science ever come up with gunpowder that doesn't leave a black powder residue? I'm tired of trying to get my AR-15 white glove clean.
Most autistic weapon thread. go.
Only autistic for those who use unironically or not in reenactments
Best SMG of WW2 along with the finnish KP31;
Shitty Tommy Guns and Stens got nothing on this and don't start talking about those fucky slavic ppsh fuck-guns
>11 lb all milled steel 9mm SMG
Yeah, nah. By WW2 Soumi was thompson tier outdated
While the KP31 has perhaps the best subgun drums ever made, the gun itself is hopelessly heavy for what it is.
Thanks for tuning in, to another video on Forgotten Weapons.com™.
I'm Ian, I'm here today at the Rock Island Auction Company™, taking look at some of the guns that they're going to be selling in their " insert date ™" regional auction.
And let's take a look at " insert obscure 1870 gun with no ammo available in 2016 ™ "
>repete this infinite for 5 years as an intro.
>it's a ian use a 1801 powder rifle on a match, while everyone else use AR.
>Well I hope you enjoyed another episode of ForgottenWeapons(R), as always, this is an auction house and this is for sale in the [insert calendar month season and year] premiere auction.

Goodness me, it's almost as if Ian has found a way to support his interest and youtube channel by leveraging his expertise in firearms history and viewership to secure access to the inventory of a business which regularly cycles through a wide variety of unique and interesting firearms in exchange for a few lines of dialogue crediting the business for its role making the videos in question possible.
What. A. Sellout.
Unsubscribed, same with that Hickock45 shill.
I somehow ended up with two of these.
Is $300 a good price for an IBA?
Guy also wants $200 extra for the armor piercing inserts
no,IBA's are trash for what you are looking for (i assume) you would likely be better off with a PC
I have three IBA's and they suck for operatin, they are good if you have to stand in one place
also a IBA that old should cost like $100 at most.
saged because go google or ebay an iba
/k/ I'm looking to get an heirloom gun for future inheritance. Help me pick. Cost isn't a problem, but I don't want to deal with stamps and shit.
Who are they ? What do they do ?
What do you think about them ?
Any /k/ommando would like to share their stories with or as MP ?
Nowadays are they paperpushers ?
Post pics, share stories.
Why is gun culture so fucking white? Where are all the people of color at the range, at the gun shows, on the forums? Colion Noir is literally the NRAs token black.
pound for pound, which country has the best military fighters? I think Chechnya
Can't be quantitatively measured, but probably some smaller country whose military is comparatively well funded and whose warfighters are generally cream of the crop warriors.
Chechens don't even perform that well in Syria, which should tell you something considering nobody there performs well.
>proceeds to name something with less claim to countryhood than Ttransistria
What in the nine hells is this?
