Anybody know anything about A5s? There's a mid-20s mfr 30" solid rib barrel (might even be matte) ~90% with the rounded pistol grip and reddish-stock (KBB says these are worth a premium). Is $450 decent?
They're still great shotguns to this day. For $450 I'd go for it. I paid that for my '48 Auto-5.
That's what I was thinking. The pictures aren't clear, but even a standard full rib barrel a5 90% is worth at least $575 according to KBB (and in my experience KBB underestimates everything to some degree). Plus the rounded pistol grip and reddish stock combo are supposed to add up to 35% for the more desirable versions (which this isn't, but still).
And I can use my C&R...
>nice trips faggot
No-guns Irishman here. Why are 'Nuggets' so popular on this board?
They seem like any other rifle. The K98 is also pretty good yet I don't see you faggots circle-jerking over that.
because up until very recently they were cheap and available. many anon's first gun so there is an emotional attachment to it.
Are they so cheap because they're shit?
Many millions of mausers, lee enfields, and other rifles of good quality were made yet the Nagant and other slavshit seems to be extremely popular here
Can anyone recommend a decent, relatively budget long range rifle? I'm looking more for manufacturers, I really don't know where to start. But if someone can point me in the right direction, I'll go try out a few at a range or gun store.
Turned 18 and want to go from nogunz to funs. I though I might enjoy precision shooting rather than an assault rifle, shotgun, etc. I figure it's decent on a range, I have knives for home protection, and I may try my hand at hunting soon, kinda always interested me.
>pic not related
wow, really? I didn't even think of that.
yeah I read it fag. they recommended a few fucking .22s. I know I'll need to try everything out on my own, I'm looking for help on where to start research. thanks tho.
You are Syrian.
You joined a rebel faction because if you hadn't joined a group at all you'd probably have died by now.
You shoot pretty good, apparently.
>He got all his shots inside the plate at 50m! This man is sniper material!
They tell you you're a sniper now, and hand you a weapon that they deem "marksman-worthy."
Your job is mostly to hide in bombed-out buildings and shoot anyone who walks down whatever street you're assigned to, as well as report any substantial enemy activity to command. Who may or may not actually be listening to the radio - you can never tell for sure. You've never received a reply when you've sent messages before, but you have received backup as a result.
>1. What weapon do you want that to be, bearing in mind you have no actual formal training in long-range shooting, and the obvious difficulties command has procuring suitable hardware?
>2. Do you bring a sidearm of some kind?
You'll have a partner, supposedly your "spotter," but he doesn't actually have any spotting equipment and just carries the radio, plus his AK, and helps keep watch. He's kind of an idiot. Eats 3/4 of the rations you're supposed to be splitting evenly between you.
What was/is the most ACCURATE service PISTOL ever actually fielded by a military in combat?
Picture hopefully not related.
probably the beretta m9.
While I hate the m9 for being shitty at its job, (a backup/officer piece should be light and reliable, not heavy and unreliable) the m9 is a very precise handgun, with a good trigger. It is a very easy gun to get groups with and the heavy frame makes it have almost no recoil.
another good contestant would be the p226.
I discounted the 1911 because while the MEU ones are precise, the old ones were made to loose tolerances and were not all that accurate. They were reliable though
I would also like to add that precision is not and should not be the focus of a service pistol. The focus should be weight and reliability. It is a last-ditch weapon and it should work when you need it and not encumber you much
the m9 doesn't work all the time and is heavy, so I think it is shit for a service pistol. A good service pistol would be a M&P-9 or a glock or even (for its time) a makarov. Its going to be a small bullet hose that is going to be used by someone with little training on it...

I conceal/open carry a Tippmann TPX pistol on a regular basis. I've been stopped by the cops numerous times but it is not considered a firearm so I don't need a concealed carry license.
People usually ask me if I'm carrying a desert eagle. I feel very safe when I walk around with it.
I do have my concealed carry and I keep at LCP on my ankle with a back up magazine on the holster.
If you fired 30 rounds from an m4a1 inside a 10x10m room with brick walls, would you definitely lose your hearing permanently? (Without any hearing protection)
Since my other shitpost thread got autosaged can we have a mech vs. tank thread please?
Powered armor enlarged a bit to the point that the person is piloting a suit rather than wearing it would be better for urban environments than a tank and potentially still being able to fit into a building. Or just knocking down the building if it can't fit. It can pack enough firepower to probably take down a tank.
Tanks would be faster but a mech would handle rough terrain better.
this has to be a bait thread, really. a mech thread on /k/ you have to be either an idiot or baiting. i'll bite. the only weapons that a mech could carry to reliably kill a tank would be AT missiles, which it wont be able to carry much of because of the mechs insane ground pressure. which is another reason why a mech will never perform well in rought terrain. plus you can't really armour mechs.
There is no point in trying to build mechs, when they're inferior in mobility, armour, firepower, logistics and survivability when compared to traditional armoured vehicles.
Just look at that picture. How the fuck does that thing move efficiently? What fuels it? How does it withstand even light artillery with hydraulic cables out in the open? That thing would be nothing but target practice for MBTs.
It's like 75% mechs are cooler than tanks
and 25% bait
I'm not saying mech vs tank in a straight up fight, I specifically said a mech slightly larger than an infantry soldier but not stupidly large like a tank. There are infantry portable weapons that can take out tanks and jets. A mech smaller than a tank but bigger and stronger than an infantry man could kill a tank from an advantages position which it could reach easier than a tank albeit possibly not as fast. But a tank would move fast enough into the kill zone where as logistically a mech would be moved more strategically to ambush.
A mech might not be as heavily armored as a tank but it could effectively be heavily armored enough to defeat infantry that can't stop a tank and even if they could they'd have to be really lucky.
people living in london look at the skies v22 osprey are flying over your heads
because they're beautiful and uk gov is buying them even if they're not suitable for combat, whih means they will be used to move soldiers, which means uk gov is planning to send more troops somewhere
What would be a good camo for north east Ohio? Is multicam the one true camo? Pic is my current set up
Lets have an edc thread.
I dont need a gun over here, got a license but its a very safe place and there is no need for a firearm.
Identify the location of his CCW, /k/ommando.
It looks like he's printing
I want to get a pocket .380 for running and when I want to go beltless. I'm waffling between the LCP and the CW380, help me pick a mouse gun /k/.
It always makes me sad seeing the state of the JSDF. I wish more young Japs would see the military as a good and beneficial thing and doing a service to their country but on the other hand the JSDF could be making enlisting more lucrative for recruits like it is in the US.
All that good stuff.
A teacher asked the class, "who said I regret that I have only one life to give for my country?"
Jin Miosaki raised his hand and said, "Nathan Hale!"
Very good. Who said, "I have not yet begun to fight?"
Jin Miosaki thrust up his hand and said, "John Paul Jones!"
Very good, Jin. Now class, why is the only person answering these questions Jin Miosaki?
From the back of the class, a blurt out said, "Fuck the Japanese!"

The plant matter on your head is supposed to be firmly and closely attached to your helmet, so it reduces IR signature and doesn't swing around massively whenever you move, adding a good 15cm to your profile when prone.
