Let's say you have two groups of guys. Group one goes to the range every weekend and shoots targets together. All the guys in group one have a little bit of experience playing paintball as kids. Group two plays paintball every weekend and practices tactics and ambush offensive/defensive formations and have established a good sense of teamwork. The members of group two have a small bit of experience shooting real guns as kids. Both groups are given real guns (AR-15 rifles) with some sort of basic red dot sights and put into a area they both know. None of the teams have experience...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
how long is the average field of view before it's obscured? 200+ meters and it's the actual shooters. less than 200 meters I'd give it to the paintballers.
The only downsides to practicing tactics with paintball is range, and not being able to shoot through things that you could otherwise simply kill your target through.
I bought a revolver today.
I'm a broke college student so honestly I'm wondering if I made a bad decision by buying it.
It's this gun but not as neat looking
Appears to be an old Taurus.
Revolver field check.
Take the gun. Ensure that it's unloaded.
With cylinder open, check for any play of the crane forward/back on it's mounting point to the frame. There should be little to none.
Close cylinder. Note rotation of the cylinder side to side when locked in. At this stage a degree of play is acceptable, but it should be completely impossible for it to "skip" over to the next chamber without manipulating the trigger or hammer.
Cock hammer. Check for any play with hammer cocked. Minor side-to-side is ok, but not ideal. ANY forward/backward play is bad. If you can "push off" (drop the hammer) without pulling the trigger that's a major failure.
Check for cylinder play with hammer cocked. It should be significantly tighter than it was before.
Lower the hammer by pulling the trigger. Keep it held down all the way. This is full lockup. There should be almost no play in the cylinder at all, but a very minuscule amount is acceptable. Any degree of play at this stage means the cylinder is not totally in line with the barrel at the time of firing and some lead is being shaved by the forcing cone.
Repeat cylinder lockup test on all 6 chambers. They could all be varying degrees of tight/loose.
Repeat lockup test periodically. You'll notice if it starts to get significantly more loose.
Also if it's a .357, I advise primarily running .38 to minimize stress on the frame and workings.
If /k/ were to design a sneaking suit to use while operating, what would it be made of? I'm not saying it has to be super practical in today's world, since the solo sneaking mission doesn't exist anymore, but I wanna know anyways. I had the idea to use something like a Kevlar/spandex weave with an integrated nomex base layer, and cordura nylon to reinforce the knees, forearms/elbows and shoulders, but I feel like others here may have a more realistic or more effective set of fabrics in mind. So with all that said, what would /k/'s sneaking suit look like?
"sneaking suits" like the ones in Metal Gear would have to be made out of spandex or something, otherwise they would be noisy and uncomfortable. The entire idea of a having a super tight form fitting suit for sneaking around in seems kind of absurd when a jumpsuit would work just fine.
One man operating still exists, it's referred to as a "singleton" operation. They seem to be surveillance operations though and not Sam Fisher style. Apparently Delta operators are capable of fooling people into thinking they are shuffling old women walking around town.
Getting my concealed carry soon and was looking for some recommendations. I've always thought Tokarevs were neato but haven't really decided yet. Thoughts?
FN Model 1903.
this is like a 10/10 on the 'neato' scale.
Other than "they're scary", what are the logical reasons behind the 1934 NFA and the 1986 ban? How is a SBR more dangerous than a regular rifle? How are full automatic weapons more dangerous than semi-automatic weapons? Are these acts justifiable?
but they shoot pistol rounds, this is why we invented ar pistols
How would you arm the police force / security / military of Zootopia? There are many size differences between the animals, smaller ones may need weapons capable of bringing down much larger ones.
Would you force them all to use a standard loadout regardless? Split them up and issue arms based on body size? General Zootopes brainstorming!
Rude! Personally I would split the animals into teams based on size for the police force, as larger animals may have trouble tracking smaller ones, and smaller ones may have trouble keeping up with larger ones.
Since the 4 of clubs has spread to other boards, it's no doubt that the normies on reddit will soon adopt it as their sign.
How will you know in a post-apocalyptic world if that guy with the 4 of clubs on his helmet is really your friend?
If you were allowed to kill one person, who would it be (no need to explain why), with what weapon, and when/where.
Just got my stamp for my AAC Element 2 today.
I'd like to put an optic on this. Something little like a Trijicon RMR, but not quite so expensive. Any ideas?
How'd I do /k/?
Anyone have a NFA trust template??? Been looking everywhere but cant find shit besides the one by Maryland_Shoot
You could get your local machine shop to mill you a rearsight dovetail mount plate out of some 6061 or 7075 and put a PA reddot on there.
You shoot a dindu in self defense. What do you say to the media after all's said and done?
/k/ approved vidya thread?
This one should definitely be at the top of the list
Advanced Tactics Gold (underrated game - let's do some COOP if anyone has it)
Probably some I'm forgetting.
On the PC version on the hard mode, this was the spiritual successor to Rainbow 6. On casual mode it was shit.
What is the best 9mm I can buy with 1,200?
Shieeet, dis problem solva, right hurrrr.
What's the best 5.56 rifle I can buy with 2,500 /k/. It doesn't have to be a AR15 can be any platform.
Your sitting on your pc at home when suddenly something bright and loud comes through your window. You wait until it passes and you look out, only to see a massive mushroom cloud coming from downtown.
What do you do?
Well I would certainly wonder what made that cloud, but it wouldn't disturb me. I know it's not a nuke. If a nuke went off downtown while I was sitting here I would never see the flash.
I want pic related. I don't own NODS and don't plan to, but I want a bump helmet for no good reason. Tell me why or why not I should/shouldn't get it
Also, helmet/gear bread
Just get it. Why do you think you need k's permission?
