I'm planning to join the military when I get out of high school.
Should I join the Marines or the Army?
Just watched some russian propaganda and now im wondering.
Are western special forces really that salty about not having one of pic related
We could have something similar. We just need to pick a bullpup DMR and put a can on it. Although I'm jealous of that fuckhuge can.
I want to get a Mark 23 and buy the absolute fucking biggest suppressor I can find for it so when I got to the range it looks like I'm firing a pistol through a 55 gal drum.
What can it do better that a normal suppressed sniper rifle can't do?
Kinda /k/ related. How would you go about mapping a wooded area? Tried to improve a google map, but it´s not ideal. Are there any gps devices that can track undergrounds too?
Contour lines!, notable rocks, cliffs, paths. Use different, simple colour distinctions. Thickness of forest / brush maybe as well, depending on how large the area is.
Are you sure there aren't any real maps on the area?
First, get a simple black and white copy map of whatever area it is you're trying to map. Your local city, county or state should have base maps that show the most common things like roads and property boundaries.
Take map into field and establish a few key landmarks that you can reliably transfer their ground location to the map.
Do this with as many things of interest as you can.
Next, use a good compass and a cruisers hip chain, measuring wheel or rangefinder you can measure direction and distance...

I got ripped off. I went to a store to buy a knife. Two greek guys were working there. 'hello young man would you like to buy a switch blade' He pulled it out and sprung it into action. I told him 'no, I'm not interested, I'd like to buy a cold steel folding knife'. I pointed out the one I wanted. At the store the price tag said 149.99. Anyway, before I bought it the other store owner tried to distract me. He asked me if I wanted to buy a soviet flask. The flask's soviet emblem was broken off and he was selling it for 40 bucks. I refused but...

You're a pussy for not saying anything about the magical 100 price increase on the spot, and dumb as fuck for paying for it.
You aren't getting your money back. You have no receipt and no price tag. You fucked yourself.
Maybe in the future don't be so quick to fork out your cash, especially when you know the price isn't right.
picked this up today at the fun show, don't know too much about garands. any tips/things I should know
Congrats! Manufacturer? Year?
Watch your thumb (practice loading with snap caps to get used to the whole enbloc thing) and use 150 grain ammo and nothing higher if it doesn't have one of those self-regulating or adjustable gas plugs.
Look up how to properly lube AND grease the rifle.
Treat it well and it willtreat you well, etc.
Tried to shoot it yesterday but the mag tube is releasing when I try to work the action and it throws the extractor and the bolt all out of wack and I don't know what the deal is.
Get a good quality sling and learn how to use it as support while shooting.
A Garand Gear gas plug is a very good idea, will let you shoot any .30-06 you have.
Strip it once to clean and grease, but avoid removing the stock frequently. Stock fit is important to a Garand, and removing it frequently will loosen it.
My Garand is probably my favorite rifle, keep it in good shape and you'll have a fantastic heirloom for your son someday.
I've just figured out these exist and i wanted to know if anyone here owned one or at least shot it.
It seems like it'd make a great alternative to the LCP. only slightly bigger but it's chambered in 9x19 instead of .380
No idea, not too big on Ruger's pistols. It's the LC9 but it is a thing
look at the Kahr PM9 if you're really in the need of a small 9mm
What's /k/'s Opinion of Death squads?
Are they Operator?
ITT: Death Squad Thread
By definition, they spend their time attacking unarmed civilians instead of armed combatants.
They're the military equivalent of that one kid who got held back for several grades and ends up as a 14 year old 6th grader beating up the other kids.
A rare piece of history worth at least $10,000 is destroyed. Good thing it's off the streets, it could maybe be used in a crime some day.
Well, /k/, imagine the following scenario :
You are not a skilled gunsmith, everyone else in the world vanishes overnight, and you can have one firearm as well as an infinite amount of corresponding parts for it. You must however maintain it yourself.
What is the easiest firearm to headspace, build, maintain that you would choose and why ?
Headspace maintain and/or build?
Some kind of open bolt SMG (headspace just means that you have the round feed properly, and all you have to do is oil it and clean the barrel. The trigger can be done in under five parts spring included, and it can be made with a welder and tube.)
If we really want to get picky though, a four winds shotgun is the ultimate end of the world gun for people who need to DIY their weapons.
Tankettes yes or no?
Can we get a black powder and before weapons thread going? Literally one of the most interesting periods of guns desu
Find a flaw /k/
I'm thinking about picking up this P64 to use in my CC rotation. Will be about $315 when it's all said and done.
