That's all I've been saying the whole time.

But the minute anyone suggests any kind of changes to the system whatsoever, the pro-gun crowd flips it's shit and yells, "THEY'RE TRYIN' TA TAKE OUR GUNS!!" without even listening to what's being presented.

She wants the NICS to be updated. She wants it to have a full and complete history, which would require every state, county, city, town, and podunk backwater to collectively pull their heads out of their asses and actually submit records to the FBI. Such an undertaking has been tried in many states, I've been a part of it first hand, it doesn't go well... you would be amazed to see just how well records are actually kept by governments, at any level.
Spoiler alert: it's not pretty.

The issue is further compounded by the fact that her own state already collects its own comprehensive records independent of federal level checks, along with waiting periods and licensing, and it's still about as effective as holding back a flood with a broom.

The NICS and the form 4473 are already security theater as is anyway, the systems track record for false positives is... bad.


File: 1507844340778.jpg (109.39 KB, 629x811, Paperwork_by_jollyjack.jpg)

I know. And I even agreed with that point earlier on.

I specifically said that doing things like restricting magazine size is completely pointless and doesn't serve any useful purpose as far as gun safety.

Personally I would like to see guns handled more like cars but that's just me. Where a license is needed to use one, if for no other reason that it would actually require someone to be trained in it's use and operation before being handed one.

Unfortunately it's not practical due to the fact that it sets a limitation on who can own a weapon, which violates the second amendment, but I still feel uncomfortable with the idea that literally anybody with absolutely no training or understanding of the weapons can be free to buy and use one.

If we did that with cars the entire transportation system would become unusable.

I'm not particularly looking for a future where guns are the rule of law and everybody is their own Judge Dredd either.

So hopefully we can find a compromise.

When someone is given a gun, they are basically being told, "Here is a device that allows you to end someones life at the push of a button. No questions asked. I trust you not to be irresponsible with it." and it's not like there is any qualifications besides being a US citizen to be eligible for this level of responsibility either.

The fact that we are all just fine with that is kind of insane, especially when for example, to be a fast food worker you need to actually pass a food handler's saftey course before you can work with food.

Because apparently being given the power over who lives and who dies requires less than being allowed to work at McDonald's.

you're making assumptions and they're not making sense

so tell me why is that in the past america had barely any restrictions on guns and there was barely any issues

why toybox? why does it suddenly matter?

i think you have a personal deep fear of people and you love the idea of protected by authority

I don't know what you mean by very many issues. There have been a lot of issues.

But I don't see guns as toys. They are murder boxes. It's why I won't personally own one. But, like religion, I am not one to propose banning something just because I personally do not like it. However, I also don't like the idea of it running rampant without any supervision.

Less scared and more that I have zero faith in people.

They have proven time and time again to be completely unreliable when it comes to making important snap decisions, and when one of those decisions can end my life, I do not find that comforting.

soiled logic

i am sorry you dont have faith in your fellow community

you know it's odd, your average everyday has helped me with stuff more than the government could ever do

meanwhile the only thing government is good at doing is arresting people and bombing countries


File: 1507846974977.jpg (83.86 KB, 569x754, Jet_Set_Chloe_by_jollyjack.jpg)

The government is not a person. It's a collection of people with different thoughts and opinions that fight with each over what should and shouldn't be done, which dilutes the decision making process into a average of the most bland choices that will never hit to any major extreme.

A single person doesn't have this set of conflicting viewpoints keeping it's decision making process in check. It makes single minded decisions with absolutely no second opinions before acting on them, and that is much more dangerous.

The government and a person may be equally incompetent, but the government is blandly incompetent while a person is sharply incompetent.

I meant on average incompetent. There are individuals that are better or worse, but the baseline average is incompetent.

If you need any more proof of this, look at any local news channel or any McDonald's last week.

You want to give guns to people that start riots over McNugget sauce Mikie. Consider that for a moment.

and people have access to guns which you claim this background check isnt enough to cover

so why didnt shoot each other then?

i never said i wanna give anyone a gun

they could also stab each other or even beat each other up.

nothing is perfect unless you live in a bubble


File: 1507847831333.jpg (90.75 KB, 622x794, Wrong_Key_by_jollyjack.jpg)

I'm just saying that people notoriously make bad decisions and while not every bad decision will end with somebody being shot, when the option is made available there is a chance it could happen.

I don't actually know what the best solution is, but I do know that 'let people do whatever they want' is not it.


File: 1507847992700.png (119.72 KB, 242x305, 887667879.png)

see here's the thing, not everyone is as stupid and incompetent as you like to believe

fact of the matter is people who even bother with guns are typically "gun nuts" anyway and im pretty damn sure with at most certainty these people are calm and collective

why? because they know what guns do and dont treat it as "the sole purpose is killing".

actually more concerned with police than your average person

Groups also make bad decisions, but usually those bad decisions have less impact than individual decisions because there is usually an opposing side that tries to question the decision before it's made.

You and Mikie can hate the government all you want, but it's made of people, the same kinds of people that constitutes the rest of the species, so if you trust regular people more than you trust the government you're just deluding yourself into thinking they are different in any capacity other than scale.


File: 1507848422210.png (395.66 KB, 552x751, 9780909098.png)

might have something to do with the fact that governments have a pretty ugly history of genocides, wars, corruption, etc

why? because its a group of minimal people in power. thats why the founders preferred a congress to make laws. but obviously that doesnt work either

decentralization is better imo


File: 1507848713058.jpg (101.82 KB, 633x745, The_Feared_Pirate_Sinclaire_by…)

Humans have a history of genocides, war and corruption. Governments are made of people.

I like how Pro-Gun people like to say 'guns don't kill people, people kill people.'

It's true. And governments don't genocide and war. People do using government as a tool, like a gun, to do it.

Humans are humans. They don't magically become something else when they become part of a government.

There is no difference between a corrupt Congressman and the dude 4 doors down from you other than opportunity and resources.


File: 1507848773630.png (588.47 KB, 789x768, 876867987987.png)

it's different when certain people have more power than others

It's not, really. It doesn't matter who is in charge those in charge will always abuse those they have charge over no matter which people you put in those positions.

then maybe you should have a government that doesnt have so much power and control over people lives?????


File: 1507849080247.jpg (176.49 KB, 732x1091, space_empress_chloe_by_jollyja…)

Then people take it upon themselves to lord any power they can over those who cannot gather as much.

If you take governments away you will simply devolve into gangs of people who will fight each other for power.

That is just how humans work. There is no escaping it.

Exactly. People with more power than others. The people don't change. The amount of power they are given changes.

And when you give someone the ability to kill another person without any real effort or thought, you give them power.

And what did we just establish that people with power do?

so these "people" don't abuse this power

thats why checks and balances were established in the constitution

>And what did we just establish that people with power do?
Nice hasty generalization there, Toy.

Presuming that every individual is going to behave to a script or down to the lowest common denominator.

It isn't that dictatorships spring from abuse of power. It's what we don't see when people with power don't want to come off as asshats, trying to do right by people instead of taking them for one way helicopter rides or treating them as sheep for the slaughter.

I've already explained how abusable that statement is. We're just going in circles at this point.

I know you only care about the spirit of what was trying to be said but spirit is not practical reality. If something can be abused, people will try to abuse it and any extra power you give to people without making triple sure you plugged all the holes will be abused to no end by people the moment you give it to them. Constitutions and amendments included.

I would not expect anybody I know to lift a finger to help me in any capacity if I needed it, so I have just learned to be self sufficient enough to which I can support myself as well as give enough to others for them to allow me to spend time with them.

Nothing is free, Mikie.

I'm not asking anything of you. I'm having a conversation with you, one that is about a topic you have an interest in and want to express views about.

When I have gotten to the point in which I actually tried to ask you do something for me, like understand a point of view I was trying to explain to you, you were done with the conversation and me. So I had overstepped my bounds by asking for something, and the usual result took place.

So I found myself in a mall recently, god knows why but in meandering through the various clothing stores I saw a lot of cheap nylon flight jacket knock-offs. Now thats not terribly surprising as they're one of the more popular pieces of milsurp. back in the 90's punks and skinheads were especially fond of them. What offended me was the price to quality ratio, these things were absolute garbage even compared to the likes of the Alpha Industries clones and yet they were priced abut the same as the real thing. A fool and his money I suppose...

Flight Jackets come in a summer weight model, the CWU-36/p and a winter weight model, the CWU-45/p. The CWU-36/p is insulated about on-par with a heavyweight hoodie, I also think the older OD ones feel slightly warmer than the newer sage green or tan ones. That could just be my personal prejudice though.
The CWU-45/p on top of being heavier to begin with can also take a button-in quilted liner and an attachable hood with artificial fur ruff. The only downside to one as a winter coat is that they ride rather high on the waist which can let a cold draft in at your belly or back, especially if you bend over or reach for something up high.
Besides simply being made to a higher quality standard the military models are made of flame-retardant Nomex while the civilian models are just plain nylon and usually with shitty stitching and bad zippers.

Pic is my CWU-36/p. found it a Goodwill a few years back for $4 or $5.

Just lurk them regularly and you'll find all sorts of neat stuff.

Probably my best ever deal was finding a like-new N3-b parka at the Salvation Army for like $3.
Also, for every one thing I find that fits me I find a dozen others that don't. I have the misfortune of requiring medium-long or large-long milsurp which is about the rarest kind.

Well it's not that it's bad per se shotgun stocks are just built for a different stance than a rifle. With an AR-style rifle you want your eye as close to the rear sight as possible, usually by placing your nose right on the charging handle for consistency. With a shotgun you'd normally have your cheek weld much further back on the comb. A longer stock does make it harder to square off to a target though ad that can be problematic.

Remington also makes a pump-action 30'06, the Model 7600.

A new entry in the AR-10 race is making the press and review rounds.

Savage has begun making their MSR 10 Hunter rifles in 7.62 NATO, 338 Federal and 6.5 Creedmoor. Their angle on promoting this AR is as a hunting rifle rather than appealing to the military weapons lover. Blackhawk has partnered to provide the pistol grips and stocks for this rifle. The gun comes with no iron sights, so you have a blank slate for whatever you want to mount to the rail.

Not a bad off-the-rack starter rifle for under $1500. With Savage producing this rifle, you know it's going to be a reasonably solid choice.

Well, the choices of calibers, the lack of some of the scary accessories like a bayonet mount and other stigmatizing milspec items moves this outside the stereotypical scary black gun market.

Granted gun haters will continue to point at the AR as a weapon of war. Savage can't erase that but they can market for whatever good that might do. More power to them for the effort.

Streamlight and Pelican are good choices. Top quality and not redunkulously expensive. For EDC lights there is the Streamlight Polytac series or the Pelican PM6 3330, they can both be had for about $40. I used to have a bunch of PM6's that I stole from the Army but most have been lost or "borrowed" by peoples since then. Streamlight Polytac 90 has been my EDC light for the last 2 or 3 years and it has held up well, also got a Streamlight Sidewinder headlamp a few months back. It's nice because it can run on one CR123, one AA or one AAA battery. A thing that pisses me off about a lot of common headlamps is that they all seem to run on three AAA's and their runtime goes to shit in the winter which of course is when you're more likely to need a headlamp because the days are so much shorter. CR123's don't die in the cold like AA's and AAA's do but it's still nice to have the option to use multiple battery types.

Given sufficient time in the field the first dude would eventually find himself without one again and the process would start over.

There's a thread on /k/ lamenting that the AR is basically the apex of firearms design and there's not likely to be any major innovations in the foreseeable future, and you know there is a bit of a melancholy that comes from knowing that we won't get to see the kind of sweeping innovations that were occurring in the late 19th century through the mid 20th. But then at the same time it's nice to know that the rifles that we spent so much time and money personalizing(probably) aren't going to be completely obsolete next year.

I'm aware of the AR18, but it was a design specifically for countries who couldn't afford to produce AR15s, and proved a commercial failure that also failed to gain any significant military adoption while not performing any better than the AR15.

Things like the gas system and bolt were copied or used as inspiration in other designs (notably the G36, XM8, etc) but, again, such designs do not do anything the AR15 doesn't while being lighter.

The people who used them in the field didn't complain. In fact, they wanted more of what this system promised. It remained in limited production for 8 years.

Granted it was heavy and could jam under the current mud and sand tests if you treated it like shit but this could have been resolved had more than 4,000 of them had been produced. Giving up on a good design is just being lazy and cheap.

The Stoner 62 and 63 weren't sufficiently reliable for a full military contract but that's not the same thing as not being functional weapons in the field. There are plenty of guns that were fielded successfully in small numbers but failed to be adopted into the military at large because they couldn't pass the standards of a military torture test.

Reverend!Slavshit.Y 41975382


>Got any documentation on this claim?

Yeah, the fact that it is well documented that it required regular maintenance to get consistent reliability, something not even the AR needs unless you count oiling as "maintenance".



>The Stoner system malfunctioned frequently, but the problem has been eliminated to a certain extent by the proper indoctrination of personnel on the gas system of the weapon.

To a certain extent the problems went away. Not very inspiring.

>It remained in limited production for 8 years.

Because it was simply not worth the extra baggage over the AR15.

You can't even say it was because the military had already invested so much into the AR because this was about the time they had only recently adopted it, and the initial attempts to sabotage it.

Is real, and though remedies exist, it is still a problem in piston ARs that exists for no justifiable reason.

Yes, I've held many SCARs. They're another great example of something that does nothing an AR doesn't do without any of the benefits.

Yeah, that test is quite obviously rigged.

See the thing with water is it's already in a compressed state so practically speaking it can't compress anymore. What that means is that energy that is expended against it will be reflected or redirected away from it. This effect can be most obviously demonstrated by a water impulse charge. basically just a block of C4 with a saline bag taped to it. The C4 is stuck to the door with the Saline bag facing outward, when detonated the saline works to reflect more of the explosive energy into the door since for the instant the detonation occurs the saline is effectively denser than the door whereas without the saline the door would be the densest thing and thus reflect more energy outward(energy always takes the path of least resistance.)

What does this mean for a gun and water? Well, if you submerge a gun, allow water to fill the barrel and then fire it while submerged all is well and good because the water pressure outside the barrel is the same as inside the barrel. If however you remove the gun from the water without letting the barrel drain first the pressure inside the barrel is going to be far greater than outside and thus the energy from the cartridge is going to look for a easier path to get out which is going to be back into the receiver. Another issue with small-caliber barrels like 5.56 is that a rifle with the bolt locked and a round in the chamber is going to act much like a straw with one's finger sealing one end, working to hold the water in the barrel typically with catastrophic results. So if you submerge your rifle without some sort of seal over the muzzle it's best to point it muzzle down and draw the bolt back far enough to break the seal and allow the water to drain out before attempting to fire it.

My Saiga weighs 12 fucking pounds unloaded.
The Aero on the other hand is like 6.8lb. breddy nice.

Neither have I, but they have some pretty good favorable reviews, and good customer service apparently. Plus, most of these rifles are builds with parts from lots of different companies, pretty neat.

I'd tend to agree with much of what you wrote. Given that many of these drop-in conversions need little to no mods to the rifle itself, I'd have one around if for no other reason than to have bragging rights to a working science fiction movie prop that could be reverted to original form. I'd also like to shoot one before spending money on building one.

I'm loving that use of the existing trigger assembly as a backup!

It doesn't have accuracy issues, doesn't shoot hot gas in your face.

It's not the size of a whale, and hasn't been discontinued.

Not held together with wood screws and not unobtainium.

Reverend!Slavshit.Y 41982382


5.56 ARs are cheap AF to build now.

Side note, if you want to make sighting in easier/cheaper, get a laser bore-sight. They're shaped like the round you need and you chamber it, then adjust the sights accordingly. It'll get you close enough so all you need to do is minor fine tuning, if that.

Cheaper to just get the ones that go in the front, and are adjustable, then you can use it on a lot of different firearms.

Reverend!Slavshit.Y 41982385


You could but I've never used them. I have one for my 7.62x39 rifles and one for my ARs.

Nom!MNH....mlQ 41982386

Yeah I noticed that when looking around. I only went with a .308 because my Remington 700 uses them and didn't want to worry about multiple ammo types. Probably a little heavy for the AR so I'm going with 165 grain for that, so that plan kind of failed but oh well. It was fun to build and a 5.56 would be cheaper to mess around with at the range.

Yeah. Something like 30% cheaper. My dad does have a laser bore sight but for now I just removed the BCG from the upper and pointed it at a thing and got my iron sights as close as I could.

Anonymous 41982432

Well no shit, that's what it's meant for you dolt. But the difference is more than 6" damn inches at its highest between 30 - 300 yards, and past that it just drops like a rock. Vs 50/200 which at 150 yards is like 2"
50/200 provides an incredibly flat trajectory for the 5.56 AND you can still hit targets accurately beyond that to 300 since it'll only be about 6" low. Which is better than the difference between 30 - 300.

They're just not that common compared to others like the M7 so the price is higher. I paid $80 for my Lan-Cay M9 at my local Army-Navy store. The first generation Buck M9's with the fullered, uncoated blades are the most collectible and thus the most expensive.
New M7's can be had for between $30 and $50. Also some people will mark-up used bayonets because they're "vintage."

But, if you wanted a bayonet you'd need a bayonet lug on the gas block of your rifle. Which for yours is covered by the handguard.

Precisely. It was supposedly designed with input from the Navy SEALs and was also supposedly a standard-issue item with them for a short while. But it was heavy to carry but not enough to be a proper chopping instrument, the metal handle was uncomfortable, it wasn't sufficiently salt water resistant and the hooks and saw teeth were nigh-worthless. In other words it was a meme. A meme born from 1980's action movies like the Rambo trilogy. The M9 improved upon it greatly by dropping the extraneous features and giving it AKM bayonet style saw teeth and wirecutter.

Not to say that hollow-handled, sawtooth-backed survival knives can't be good. The Randall Model 18 attack-survival knife was a legitimate example of such a thing and that was used by pilots and secret-squirrel types in Vietnam and later. That's what the Rambo First Blood knife is based upon.

Indeed. The aircraft designed in the '50's had that special aesthetic you rarely see today.

It's hard to conceive that the F4 Phantom was on the drawing board in 1953.

Then there was the B70. What could have been...

They were sleek and had curves. Maybe this is why I am liking the Concorde and her Soviet sister too.

Also delta wings make everything better I guess.

The B-36 is more a product of WWII crash engineering. Rumors still claim this was built on rough design perimeters for delivering large Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs.

The B-52A hit the design boards in 1949.

It's a bit more than just a rumor. The B-29 was only just capable of carrying the Fatman and Little Boy. They had to have a bigger bomber if they actually intended to project power in the atomic age and the B-36 was their stopgap solution until the B-52 came along.

The B-36 was also the testbed used to carry a nuclear reactor in the rear bomb-bay as part of the nuclear bomber program:

Even back in the 50's, everyone knew nuclear powered aircraft were a bad idea.


Nom 41983222

I'm okay with retiring them when we can get another proper CAS and COIN platform. The A-29 Super Tucano is close but I don't think it has the survivability oh the A-10. It's a flying tank.

Or better yet just let the army fly fixed wing aircraft and let the airforce get the pointy nose fighters.

Ya, a manned nuclear aircraft just isn't practical. Now a nuclear-powered drone would be exciting. Something like an upscaled Global Hawk with a nigh-unlimited loiter time could be very handy.

Still not as derpy as the nuclear tank concept though.

Nothing at all wrong with nuclear power in general. People just treat radiation like black magic due to decades of fear-mongering. Doesn't mean it's practical to power every little thing with it either though.

Camp Century, part of Project Iceworm proved that a portable nuclear reactor was quite practical for powering arctic or antarctic research stations. Though Project Iceworm itself was a secret operation to conceal missile bases under the ice to fire upon the Soviet Union in times of war and that proved unfeasible due to ice drift.

It's up to the mission designer but it can be A-10A,, A-10C, F-15, Su-27, Su-33, Su-25, Su-25T, P-51D, FW-190, BF-109, Spitfire, AJS-37 Viggen, Mirage 2000 and various helos like the Gazelle and Ka-50 Black Shark.

Oh shit, forgot the F-86 Saber, MiG-15, L-39.
And Mig-29.
And F-5.

I think that's all unless I forgot a couple more.

Flight sims are cool. What kubd of set up do you need to play properly?

Nom!MNH....mlQ 41983526

It really comes down to what you want to do. For DCS, a decent stick with a twist grip is plenty for almost everything. If you want to get into helicopters and even WWII birds you'll want to invest in rudder pedals too. I would highly recommend a head tracking solution too. TrackIR is what most people use but on a budget something like freetrack works just as well with a little DIY.

That being said, the Saitek X-55 is a good all around HOTAS. Same for the Thrustmaster T16000M HOTAS. Make sure to search for HOTAS because if you just search for stick you'll find the joystick only. No throttles. Neither of those will break the bank. Also CH products aren't bad either. Good quality but a little basic looking.

>Mental conditioning

Only way to get that is by training that simulates combat as closely as possible and of course, by experiencing actual combat. Even that's only useful once you have a vague idea of what you're doing. You start with doing drills by the numbers, then in real-time, then in real-time with "simulated" stress factors, for instance, doing a 100 meter sprint through a cloud of CS gas, diving into and low-crawling through a trench filled with cold-ass muddy water, crawl out the other side and engage a series of targets while an instructor yells in your ear and mortar simulators go off nearby and finally by force on force training Whether with MILEs gear, Simunitions or whatever.
The closer you can simulate combat scenarios and the more times you repeat them the better the odds are you'll react quickly and effectively when the real thing occurs.

If you've ever seen Black Hawk Down(and you'd better've, it's required.) The scene where Gordon and Shugart are down to their sidearms defending the chopper and reloading as quick and smoothly as though they were at the range back home is indicative of what "mental conditioning" is meant to instill. The ability to act and react immediately and effectively while under duress.
