>A machine gun on a tripod is more powerful than a shoulder fire machine gun of the same caliber by a non-negligible amount
I usually like Lindybeige, but damn that was retarded for an educational video.
lindys a guy who sounds like he knows whats hes talking about but most of the time hes full of shit and when he isnt full of shit he got to that conclusion the wrong way.
if you know anything about the subject matter hes talking about its obvious hes talking out his ass.
I need help. And lots of it.
I've never owned a gun and gone shooting twice in my life. First time was 15 years ago and most recently was this last weekend.
In the past I never had any interest in owning a gun, because of the fact I was never really exposed to them so I was always a little uncomfortable. But I have to say, after this weekend I am really interested in owning one myself.
What I need help with is what is the best gun for my needs?
I live in a safe area so home defense, while an obvious benefit, really isn't a concern of mine. I do a LOT of hiking/backpacking so I would like something to protect me while /out/ but still want something that won't added too much unnecessary weight or be awkward to carry with a large pack on. But I also want something thst is just fun to shoot at the range or on car camping trips
Is there anything that really comes to mind that meets my criteria or would I be better off making multiple purchases. One for when I'm backpacking, and a different one for practice?
These chest rigs are great for /out/ shit. If you are worried about larger predators, a large caliber revolver or a 10mm glock is a pretty good choice. My buddy in alaska loves his rig. He just bought a super redhawk alaskan in .454 casull and it carried that behemoth comfortably and out of the way ehile fishing or backpacking.
What is the point of smaller flat top amphibious assault ships when you could just build more 100,000 ton super carriers?
They cost 4 billion dollars each, they aren't much cheaper than a super carrier. If they were building 30 Fords instead of 11, no doubt they would be quite a bit cheaper.
You build more carriers, then you'll need to build more aircraft to fly off of them, then you'll need to train crew to run them, then you'll need to build more escorts to protect them, and then you've got to pay operation costs. It's not as simple as "X amount of money spent on this could have been used to buy Y many of these".
That said, the America was a mistake.
Need escorts to protect an amphibious assault ship as well.
Though thats largely doctrinal, if it had its own missiles, its own ASW choppers/planes, it could function adequately on its own.
>civil war or uprising breaks out in america
what are the odds of foreign aid to rebels?
See; Revolutionary War
See; American Civil War
Foreign influence will be IMMENSE.
For example; if we rebel against the US Federal Government, you can bet your ass that we will start getting Chinese or Russian shipments of QBZ's and CQ's and AK's and RPG's.

>how bigs the range?
very. has a pistol range and a 25-175yrd range firing line is covered with a building and has tables and gun racks.
>are noguns welcome?
sure just bring some ammo and/or money to use other peoples guns.
>are furfags welcome ?
sure just no fur suits.
Now heres the only thing you will most likely need the range has asked that those coming get a year member ship its only $10 for the whole year range is a CMP affiliate so if you want to get a M1 garand they can give you a copy of the range certificate along with a membership card.
I tried to talk them into letting me just pay about $100 so you guys could come for free for the weekend.
also Josh hallaway you can bring the 20mm and all your other goodies
Moobs you can bring explosives just nothing that can make a massive crater like last fest.
any questions please feel free to ask

Alright /k/, I wanna know what the best caliber you've come across for long range precision shooting, at distances of 600 yards+
We all know he was a genius in terms of engineering and creating the first nuclear propulsion based submarines, but how was he in terms of his war fighting capabilities? Was he a strategic and tactical genius as well in terms of naval warfare? I know he commanded submarines for a bit. What was Admiral Hyman Rickover like as a warfighter?
Also, general US Navy thread.
Hey guys, I've gotten into backpacking, and I've been wanting a better option for a rifle to carry with me.
I've been carrying an 870 recently, but it's a bit too awkward keeping in my rifle loops in my pack.
I've been looking at 45-70 guide guns. The barrel size looks perfect and that bullet hits like a truck.
What do you guys carry on over night hunting/back packing trips ?
What should your first gun be? A .22lr semi auto, bolt action, 12 ga shotgun or what?
Mainly for fun.
Will 5.56 NATO be the new currency when SHTF like in Metro?
Thinking about joining the Marine Corps as an MP I've read about recruitment on the website but I'm hoping to get an idea of what the job will actually be like/other servicemen's attitudes to MPs

MP's also serve as staff at the Brig. So some are chosen as prison guards.
I did 2 days in the brig. I learned something while I was in. Those motherfuckers are locked in and hate life just like we did. Sure they got to leave after their 8 or 12 hour shift. But that's the job, being in prison. They are just the goons in charge and usually bitter and take it out on the the people in the brig.
I was a corporal and if I were to ever meet that PFC shmuckatelli guard that talked shit to me in a dark alley the tables would definitely be turned.
Poor fags semiauto BR?

i got a question for you fellas.
I'm not one of those THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE types, but i show respect to the old timers we have left from WW2 and Korea, and don't try to salute them or anything. But what i have done in the past, like during memorial day, or veterans day is, give them my American flag morale patches off my hat, my bag or my jacket, when they compliment them at waffle house or out shopping.
does anyone else buy cheap fake maxpedition style glow in the dark, PVC Velcro USA flag patches or similar off of ebay or equivalent, just to have...
