when shoooting a rifle standing, where do you legs go? what stance are your legs in?
Depends on your stance, weaver was popular for a long time and involves putting your non-dominant foot in front by a little and turning your body to the side.
Isosceles stance has always been popular with speed shooters for it's fast target acquisition time, but has found more popularity recently with the wide usage of body armor that works best if presented flat towards the enemy. Your legs go side by side, shoulder width apart for weaver stance.
I know Hi Point is usually a shit brand, but I've been looking into the 995TS and it doesn't seem too bad. If anything I could just use it to plink around. What do you guys think?
Seriously ask yourself why you would want it. It's a low capacity pistol caliber carbine that has very few accessories and is a little overpriced even at $300. Either get a pistol or a rifle or a proper. Your a moron to buy it
Can someone explain railguns to me? What are they, how do they work, what role will they play in warfare, what will they replace if anything?
which one is your favourite?
A tie between Default Elle and M14.
I for one appreciate machine puns.
We come up with new cartridges and invent a purpose for them. I'll start
Use: Lighter ammo to be used in heavier roles such as lmg or sniper/dmrs. It's got the punch of a .308 yet is lighter allowing soldiers to carry more
Hello /k/, I'm from /tg/ and I've got some questions about weapons.
In my game, the date is 2040 and there is a habitable planet that is reachable from Earth via some science-fiction bullshit that doesn't matter for the purposes of these questions. Launch cost is about $20k/kg delivered to the planet.
The planet is mostly Earth-like; 90% Earth gravity, human-breathable atmosphere, not unusually corrosive or anything. Inhabited by animals that can get fairly large (not quite largest dinosaur large, but there are a few species which are bigger than elephants), although the bigger ones are rare. No sentient life.
Back on Earth, there have been no major wars or any great breakthroughs in technology. Computers are faster, cars are more efficient, materials a little stronger but generally nothing amazing that is likely to affect weapons development.
A four-man team has a 15kg weight allowance and $500k budget for weapons and other defences against local wildlife. Hunting for food isn't considered essential, but they would probably appreciate it if it were possible. 'Defence against local wildlife' includes defence against ones they piss off trying to capture specimens. The planet has more heavy metals than Earth, so the local flora and fauna aren't likely to be that harmed by lead poisoning, but if lead-free bullets could be used without seriously affecting effectiveness they would be preferred. Chemical weapons are considered to be unreliable since not enough is known about the local biochemistry yet.
With those parameters, what are they likely to have in their armoury? What would you give them if you had to work with weapons that exist today? What kind of small-arms technology is almost certain to be available by 2040 and worth taking?
Just give them all 12 gauge shotguns with slugs and buckshot rounds if all they have to be worried about is animals. If there's a fuckton of animals, give them big-bore assault rifles like M4's in .300 blackout or something.
By 2040, nothing would have advanced by much at all. We're only 24 years away from there. Maybe a couple new weapons platforms that are marginally better than their predecessors, but that's it.
whats the best holster for my dog? Full size
>weedman buying super hornets as an interim measure
>can't and won't exclude F-35 from the competition for a Hornet replacement
It's fucking nothing.
Hey /k/, my mom almost got robbed by a pillhead (NWI) and I got to thinking that I dont want to keep some of the more expensive/have sentimental/historical guns in my car with the risk of them getting stolen/confiscated.
So Im thinking maybe get a handgat that costs under 250 I can leave loaded in my glovebox or under my seat most of the time and occasionally plink with, and have a cheap concealment hoslter on it so if Im in a sketcy area I can throw it inside the waistband
Im looking at the armscor m206. Any /k/ommandos have any experience with this gun? Also...

pic related, my buddy has a m88 I could trade a sporterized m95 I have never shot (8x56r is just too expensive on a college poorfag budget)
And I guess budget /k/ poorfag concealed carry thread
Ruger P-Series. You can usually find them for ~200-300, they are very reliable and you can get quality Mec-Gar mags in that pattern.
Just remember that P85s take a slightly different pattern than the P89s and P95s do. Also P90, P97 or P345 if you like .45 ACP and P944 if you like .40S&W. IMO P89 and P95 is where it's at.
You are in a club and this guy slaps your gf's ass, what do?
Why don't we have more wars? World is peaceful as fuck, is we take kebabs from the equation is almost nothing happening atm.
>Not fighting other countries for its resources and lands to improve your own country
Is people afraid of war?
What's the deal with the Japs?
How strong is they're military?
This guy took a bullet at blank point range and continued smashing a car as if nothing has happened. How can that be?
Many possible explanations
>didn't hit anything vital
>guy on drugs
Any combination of above. Bullets aren't magical one-hit-kill death machines, it pokes a hole in you. Being hit in some areas causes more injury than others obviously.
More are dead due to drug wars than middle eastern civil wars/OEF/OIF combined.
Which is the more relevant security problem?
Is Latin America a more severe combat zone?
