So I've been eyeing the c308 for awhile, thinking of making it my first firearm. I've got a couple of informed friends who advise against it, both say to get an ar. While I agree that the ar is certainly a better gun, I can't help but feel like it's the gun everyone has, plus I'm a history buff and the cetme has a cooler story Imo. Is the cheap price and unique/cool factor strong selling points, or am I just being stubborn? Also, input on cetme/g3 type weapons or roller delay blowback in general
My first gun was a PTR a few years ago. I'd recommend it, so long as you are concious of any flinching you may be doing. Buy a muzzle brake perhaps, and dry fire practice often. It is a good, simple gun that is easy to maintain, and is fairly foolproof. Ammo may be a bit expensive, as it's $.40+ a round.
Will soldiers use full body armor like this in the future? Why or why not?
>plate carrier + helmet
>full body armor
No. The direction personal protection is going is less is more. 40 years ago it was full nylon smocks, 30 it was nylon vests, then it was big fabric vests with plates, then it was Kevlar vests with plates, then it was tight waistcoats with plates and now its just plate carriers. Then next iteration would predictably be plates with pouches molded into them or something, but that would be a step back desu. Those bracers and hand armor don't do shit and nobody would wear them, the shoulders make sense but are huge so people would ditch them too at first opportunity.
Can someone explain this to me? I've read a bunch of stories about how police will confiscate someone's weapon after they use it in a self defense scenario. Is this only done when foul play is suspected? Are there certain parameters that police have to see before legally taking a pistol?
I'm sure that this may be location dependent to some degree, but I'm really just looking for any information on this.
i've never been in a scenario where my firearms could have been taken, but from what i hear they take them to "verify they're not stolen" or some bullshit. Thats fairly common from what i've gathered. The part were your mileage may vary is upon return of your firearm. Some people have gotten their firearm back in perfect condition and others have had theirs returned missing optics, blemished, or disassembled.
Is there a way I can put these two things together and make a retractable stun baton?
So fire clean is suing vuurwapen blog apparently... Choose sides...
>Vuurwapen; causing industry butthurt since 2009
what's the best knife I can get for $400 or less?
Want to use it as an edc. Concealed.
Hey /k/, so the front sight on my newest Type 56 is bent slightly, any recommendations on fixing it? Also general SKS thread
>Still using expensive, over-engineered aircraft
>Not just buying Saab Gripen instead
>Spend 24 years developing ultra secret high tech jet fighter
>Only buy like 10
>Never use them for anything because they're too expensive to risk breaking
>Literally 187 in use
Well memed friendo :^)
Oh also almost forgot about the most advanced fighter jet in the world, American of course. Enjoy your shitty poorfag planes as your militaries try and fail to get the F 35.
New gun owner here. I want to protect my guns, but I figure it's really not that hard to break into a gun safe, especially one that's reasonably priced. Am I wrong, and if not, how do I protect my guns?
>it's really not that hard to break into a gun safe
Good one. Do yourself a favor and buy a real safe instead of a sheetmetal fireproof box.
Some countries REQUIRE you to store your guns in a certified safe at all times, and rightfully so; you don't want dindus to just waltz off with your collection while you're not watching.
The minimum requirements where I live are for storing more than 4 weapons is:
-the walls of the safe need to be 4mm thick steel, minimum.
-needs to be bolted to the ground / wall.
You want to have a safe with two locks.
>no pimp my gun bread
Also >tfw save jpg doesn't work
So glad this piece of shit website is going to go bankrupt. The comments are cancer.
The electrical outlet closest to you just fired a single 12 gauge of 00 buck in the direction it was pointing.
How fucked are you, /k/?
Recent aquistions thread?
Just got a sporterized mas-36. Anyone know where to get the front end stock for not balls expensive?
Got a Ruby revolver purely because I started collecting Ruby semi autos and figured for $200 I might as well get my first revolver
Holy shit this thing feels amazing, I mean I've shot my dad's Colt Metropolitan and a little snubby revolver he has, but goddamn this this just feels perfect to hold
I'm already considering getting it professionally reblued because I can see myself liking this gun a lot
Could blowguns be used as an effective guerrilla weapon to obtain the weapons of enemy soldiers?
If so how can I make a guerrilla blowgun + darts?
I used to make them as a kid, 25mm PVC conduit pipe, a long thin nail and a cone made of paper + sticky tape.
They're hard to use, pretty fucking useless past about 10m and would need a poison to do someone serious damage
Only if you have really awesome poison.
Other than that something similar was used in that one assassination attempt with an air powered pellet gun hidden in an umbrella. Only really efficient in closer ranges.

Well their commanders understand they neither need nor want to challenge the Americans too much to take strategic control of the SCS.
America is doing very little to challenge China and so the Chinese respond the same way.
Plus the little guys never want to start WW3.
Reminds me of stories from the Cold War when we'd do something similar stuff with their bombers and our interceptors. The Soviets started putting commissars on the planes, so they'd simulate turbulence to make him go to the back of the plane so they could carry on.
