Anyone been through MEPS recently enough to remember it?
How closely do they look at your whole body? Doesn't the doc do a whole group of people at once for the duckwalk/balancing/junk, then only inspect individuals when it comes to private parts?

I bought a box of Remington contract 54r from 1917 today. Anyone know how rare this stuff is? Never seen it, bought it because I thought it was cool and it fits my 1918 Remington M91 well.

I'm putting a thread up early to start attracting attention towards what might be the dankest meetup of the year. (totally objective opinion)
While discussing locations for the summer Cali meet with brzfag on Slack, I discovered that we might totally be able to take over an old ghost town for a weekend and go shooting nearby. This idea made my dick diamonds instantly. The town was abandoned in the 50s and consists of a 3-story hotel building that remains in great shape and several smaller cabins and buildings in various stages of disrepair, in addition to tons of old mining structures and equipment, and is known for 2spooky happenings and awesome hiking and offroad driving.
>What's the catch?
I have no idea whether it can happen or not, but it looks like the stars might just align in time for a meetup in June.
There are usually visitors, but not in the national park sense, the place is very loosely regulated but campers and the like stop by on the weekends.
A scouting meetup is planned for the 29th of April (Date may change) for the day to locate good shooting spots within 1/2 mile of the town and how many of the structures are suitable for stalker'ing.
>Where the fuck is this?
The middle of fucking nowhere in Norcal. Draw a triangle between Redding, Sac, and Reno and it falls in Plumas county. There's literally no major towns that I can point out nearby. I'll post a long-ass map link somewhere in this thread so folks can start planning carpool.
>So what's the plan?
The scouting meet on the 29th will find out if the site is suitable, and report back with pictures and maps, I will call up the local ranger rick and make sure everything we'll be doing is on the level, and then the final date, schedule, and information gets released along with what needs to get brought.
>How do I get involved?
We have a Slack channel that you can join by posting a burner email in this thread, and myself or someone else with admin auths will add you in.
The hotel building which is regularly used by campers and offroaders, plus a google map link of the site.

This is the third time Hickock has forgotten his earpro in the last 4 or so videos.
Is he going senile?
Picked up this Over Under at a local gun show today for about 150 with a bit of ammo. Pretty happy with it but it's a little stiff. Any way to loosen up the (what I assume) hinge?
Doesn't look under 16.5 inches from the pictures. Good question, though... OP may have stumbled upon a wild ATF sting, although if he did I'm sure his ass would have already been grass.

I'm really at a crossroads here, I have never hunted with a revolver and as far as the caliber difference most recommend the .44, it's just so damn expensive to shoot compared to .357/.38sp.
Any advice from you who own one or both of these calibers?
start with a 357
you can always get a 44 later when you have more money to spend on guns and ammo
Is the Marine Corps the biggest meme in the military? So much media attention is dedicated to them despite their small size and people trip over themselves to join even though they have less enlistment benefits. If anything it's remarkable they've continued to exist as a separate branch for so long. Someone please explain?
A QR force on the go anywhere in the world in 24 hours, taking ground so that the army can hold it(in theory, though that didn't quite pan out in Iraq). If the army wanted to be as cool, they'd have hired better marketers.
How far can sociopaths get in the military or law enforcement? Are they easily discovered once they get in? Have you worked under one?
I don't mean edgy fat kids who wear black and kill puppies, but folks like pic related. Most CEOs and politicians qualify as sociopaths.
He'd be a badass if he didn't cross dress.
He dealt with personnel who felt they could progress their career by "getting cozy".
>How far can sociopaths get in the military or law enforcement?
depends, if they are high functioning like Bateman, very far. I had a kid I was in charge of, years later I realized he was a sociopath.

Why do different militaries use different unit sizes at the lower levels?
I've just been reading about armor organization and while the US uses 4 tanks per platoon, the Russians are experimenting with 5, Chinese use 3, Brits can't make up their minds, etc, I've seen very little information on why they choose to do things the way they do.
Another example - if one battalion has three companies, and another has 4, with the same number of men overall, does the 4-company battalion have an advantage or disadvantage or neither?
Talk about gun builds you are doing or are planning to do
Post your pps43's your parts kits AK's, your Suomis, your CZ 26's, etc
80% AR reciever builds not invited, you cucks
Best value kit http://www.clearviewinvest.com/suomim31partskitwithhorizontalcutreceiverandoriginalbarrelslantedshroud-5-1-1.aspx
To those in the know, what is a cheap and easy kit to make? Things look so cheap, but then you realize that that the only in stock repair section / semi auto receiver is like $300
Plus making things semi auto is a bitch.
So what is a good beginners budget build?
I want to buy one old Mauser gun, I'm not sure how much one costs.
And then cut and change it to the Han solo's blaster.
The largest tool I have is a hand drill. Is it that hard to cut and modify?
Britfag here, is there any way I can buy a balisong online? I've seen dodgy websites which ship them in parts but the majority of them are a huge rip-off when it comes to prices.
All help is appreciated.
