>Anybody ever get a gun from Ruger that was correct from the factory?
Fixed and no.
Contact Ruger. Ruger isn't notorious for QC and quality products in general, but even that is pretty low by Ruger standards. That barrel is horrendous.
Finally bought a gun I've been eyeing for a year and it comes in Tuesday. Anyone have pic related? What's the deal with holsters? I hear it's not quite the P229 or P228 so what works?
What weapons and gear do you use?
I was thinking, isn't Pakistan perhaps the most /k/ country other than the US? They have one of the largest militaries in the world with varied units and equipment, a real assortment of domestic production and American and Chinese weaponry. Civilian gun ownership is widespread and includes handguns, centerfire rifles, etc. Open carry is legal outside of cities. There is a thriving weapons industry, and also there are the legendary backyard "Khyber Pass" gunsmiths
Pak Army troops in cutting-edge assault vehicles
Alright /k/, realistically speaking, if the government attempted to take everyone's guns, would you fight them, to protect the constitution and your liberties, or would you just submit? If you will choose to fight, what's your plan?
Well /k/, today is the day I lost my faith in 9x18 Makarov as a defensive round.
>snake season has begun, find pic related yesterday

>see black and white rock, neat..
>not a rock, but a fucking 5 foot diamondback rattlesnake 3 feet away from my foot
>staring, not rattling
>2 shots. 2 hits. Hole about 3/4 of the way towards its head.
>motherfucker BOLTS in the direction of a creosote bush 15 feet away.
>2 more shots, don't know if hit
>snake disappears down hole in roots of bush
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. IF 9X18 CANT STOP A FUCKING SNAKE HOW CAN IT STOP A FULL SIZED DINDU?
Hippie fuckers won't kill these snakes, and as a result they don't fear humans, this bitch didn't rattle once the entire encounter.
I work about 5 hours away from the nearest hospital, so helicopter is the only option for survival. The catch is, cell service is spotty, and the nearest neighbor is miles away.
That being said, what is the best gun for snake defense? Preferably able to cc, since it's useless if it's in the truck.
What boots will stop a snake bite, but still be comfortable enough to work in?
I guess a .410 revolver? Maybe have better aim, or just wear boots. I would imagine you need to hit the brain to insta-kill, which is probably no bigger than a pea.
the 9x18 is doing its job, the snake couldnt get back to the snake field medics and I doubt he survived. Really the best way to take on snakes is to pin it with a stick and cut its head off with a knife, gotta make sure you get the stick close enough to the head or you got the same problem
Any other Scorpion owners on here?
Why is it whenever people talk about modernizing battleships, they want to modernize the Iowa when it would make more sense to modernize the North Carolina-class? Today's battleships don't need 30+ knot speed to keep up with CSG. Cheaper NC-class clones are far more practical.
So did we ever hear back from the /k/ing? Or was it all a ruse and the greatest thread ever on /k/ was a troll?
Yea I have the screencaps from the thread
I'm tired of this board shitting on the most powerful weapon that has ever been fielded in history, which is of course the marine and his rifle.
The USMC has a proud history of being the worlds most elite and well trained infantry with the exception of SOME special forces units.
So the next time you want to hate on the spear, don't hate the tip, which is of course the United States Marine Corps.
Nice talk on cybernetic limb research
When civilian models are finally indistinguishable from the real deal (function wise) will development finally end up with something a soldier could use? Something that could make him superior to a normally limped person?
Or would this be seen as a waste of time?
Why is our military so shit.
Older brother is a muhreen and personal trainer and has helped a bunch of fatties and skeletons get into shape for service. Two of the guys he trained even made it to the ranger school (however I don't know how they faired...).
Anyway he gave me one of his old logs so I thought I'd dump it and see if it helps anyone.
Also post anything related to /k/ fitness.
How does this make you feel, /k/?
>"Chamber control, not trigger control!"
Is he right /k/?
