What does /k/ think would cause another civil war? Not necessarily north against south but perhaps a revolution. Who or what would you support? What would push you to fight? What would the aftermath of a successful or unsuccessful uprising be?
/BGT ballistol general thread.
Whats that smell Edition.
Why is the best gun oil/cleaner ballistol and why does it smell like dead animals.
I also use ballistol. I've tried a lot of different products and in my opinion it works best. I think smells kinda like black licorice.
Hoppes 9 is still king when it comes to smell though.
Why did the USAF go from being dominated by bombers to being dominated by fighters?
Believe it or not, there was once a time when there were more B-52's than fighters. Fighters (or interceptors as they were called back then) were seen as a purely defensive measure. It was assumed that bombers would be doing all the real work and the fighters would just be something like a goal-keeper for protecting the homeland.
LeMay called it quits, ICBM's became the new hotness, and the hippies ruined everything and made being a bomber pilot uncool.
SALT treaties because "muh nukes" ,the end of the Cold War and "this is totally not a bomber guize" bombers like this thing

And that's the story of how I met my wife. She actually likes shooting, just doesn't like being ignored.
Hey /k/ommandos, I need suggestions for a bug out bag I'm assembling for my wife. She's 5'6, 130lb. I've got everything from a-z, except rifle. I'm currently looking at Henry Arm's take on the AR-7 Survival rifle.
Any other ideas? Remember : Light, Reliable, Easy to Use/Maintain/Disassemble/Stow and Carry.
Thanks in advance.
(pic related, fully disassembled AR-7)
From what I've read, you'd be better off with a Ruger 10/22 takedown. Supposedly the new AR-7's are complete trash and even the older ones (which are supposedly 'okay') are inferior to the Ruger 10/20 takedown.
I had toyed with the idea of getting an AR-7 a while ago, but I ended up with the takedown. I'm satisfied with my decision.
I have an AR 7 (the Henry survival one) and it's a piece of shit. Won't eject a round. 2 gun smiths later, no answers. Still will not eject every 2nd or 3rd round. Get something else. My neos works every time, even with shit ammo
Fuck. Honestly I was about to order one, the whole "super light and super stow able" aspect is pretty fucking hypnotizing. Ruger 10/22 looks pretty promising, but I hate the stock stock, but it looks like there are tonnes of different non oem stocks.
This is why you don't use undersized bullets. They produce violent but shallow wound channels.
The test was with .22-250, which is considerably faster than .223. If .22-350 can't break that egg, .223 with the same bullet can't either.
Everyday carry thread. Post what you carry with you.
>inb4 where's ur gun XD
I live in North California. I have to deal with this, and I'm not rich.
this threaf is gonna be awesome!
Me 262 versus F-80
What the hell is this monstrosity
Srlsly looks like a broken bizon
Which is the good one and which is the meme one?
They were both sufficient for their intended roles.
Google couldn't figure this one out for me. Does shooting slugs out of a smoothbore shotgun damage the barrel in any way?
My family swears you need a rifled barrel for slugs but they also believe 9mm can't kill a person so I thought it was fuddlore.
Can I hit a human torso reliably at 50 yards with slugs through a smooth bore?
Pic kinda related I want one.
Smooth bore is fine. Choke is more important, I believe cylinder is preferable for shooting slugs.
If I recall correctly, though, you might need a rifled barrel to use saboted slugs, or at the very least to fully reap the benefits of saboted slugs.
Personally, I can hit a torso at 50 yards consistently using only the front bead on my Browning Auto-5 and foster style Remington 2 3/4" slugs.
Shut that pisses you off

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
All kinds of precision and long range shooting welcomed, from .22lr to 50 BMG.
Let's see the glass and rifles out there.
A few weeks back I got my precision AR recrowned, and it's back to 1 MOA (or under with match ammo)
What does k think of pic related? Is it worth it?
