What can /k/ tell me about the English Electric Lightning? Was it based, or shit?
Hey /k/ I just picked up this old shotgun from a local shop for $125. I probably overpaid but I was looking for a project gun to have some fun with and try to fix up. I read online that this thing is probably from around the turn of the century, its a "Chicago Long Range Wonder". Does anyone know what ammo is safe to shoot out of this thing? I've seen here several times that it isn't safe to shoot modern shotgun ammo out of older shotguns like this one. Also the stock is damaged, someone down the line taped it up to hold it together, I removed the tape and...

>Chicago Long Range Wonder was a trade name used on shotguns made for Sears, Roebuck and Company of Chicago, IL and made by Andrew Fyrberg and Sons in the period 1899-1905.
>These shotgun s had Damascus or Twist Steel barrels which are not considered safe to use with modern ammunition.
It *might* be okay with low base loads. Quiz your local gunsmith.
Hey all, got out of Ranger school around a month ago and figured it would make for a good thread. A lot of advice and stuff that helped me out there I found online beforehand, looking to answer any questions about any type of train up, workouts, mentality, gear, or even just any military questions.
please no debates over different branches, other nonse
I had a grandpa who was a LRRP team leader. He doesnt talk in detail about any of his missions, just tells some of the more general things like how they operated and slept, and what happened when they made contact. He got show during extraction which ended his military career.
Pic related is the only pic I have ever seen of my grandpa in country.
Why did the US not invent guided bombs like Fritz-X? If the USN had B-17s dropping guided bombs, the Pacific would've been won before the war even started.
The technology and the drive to develop guided bombs wasn't there before WW2. Plus the US didn't mind bombing the shit out of cities full of women and children to make a point.
Guys, I think Obama has finally come up with a gun law /k/ can support.
>Eventually, all federal agents would be mandated to use biometric smart guns in the line of duty to ensure that smart gun manufacturers have a steady customer base from which to develop the technology.
>feds leo guns get hacked by david fry tier hackers and overrun by hordes of pissed off militia after being turned into noguns
>obama and the rest of his suicidal antigunner supports are all lunched by an angry mob of both militia progunners and now pissed off and defected LEOs who just got gun controlled.
A bridge too far.

So I live in the state of Maryland. They have ridiculously stupid AR laws. I have looked at the GII Recon, but I think I am going to get this as my first gun. I am 5'7'' so this gun won't be too small for me.
Do you think this is a bad call for a first rifle? Keep in mind, Maryland, dumbest gun laws in the country.
Do yourself a favor and get a lever-action or Muzzle Loader if you intend to stay in Maryland. You can actually buy some fun building kits for Black Powder rifles and unless black powder is banned your firearm will always be legal because it only uses one round. On the other hand Lever-actions, especially tubed ones, tend to get around a lot of gun laws.
A better option is to move.
I was selling a P99AS and the guy is offering a trade for 1 of his guns is a 92A1, USP or a P30LS.
Which one is more durable and reliable? I have to make up my mind before tomorrow but Im not even sure if they guy is stupid.
The P30 series is supposedly the latest and greatest from H&K...
As for the 92a1, I wouldnt go for it. Heard too many complaints about it. Regardless, you're trading in a Walther for an H&K. Its a helluva upgrade
What are the chances of joining the US Army or Marines with a GED...?
Low. It's possible but they prefer people to have their high school diploma, you need to get a higher asvab to get in as well. You're chances are better if you take a full semester of college courses.
Were there any real combat between NATO and soviet jets ?
I'm only talking about 2 jets engaging each other not two squadrons .
I heard that a incident like that between one Libyan mig and one Italian f16 happened
Pretty much constantly, just not necessarily between actual NATO or Warsaw Pact member states. Israel was one of the first to get F-15s and curbstomped Russian-made fighters with them, for instance.
