thinking about getting a semi auto 308, should I get a scar 17s or a MR762?
unironically the DPMS Recon G2 is also a viable and cheaper option
Do you want a light, handy .308 carbine where 1 to 1.5 MOA is acceptable? Get the SCAR 17 and use the $800-$1000 you saved over the MR762 to go toward an optic.
Do you want a semi-auto precision oriented .308 where you'd like sub-moa accuracy? Get the LMT MWS and use the $1000++ you saved over the MR762 and its $60 proprietary mags to go toward an optic.
Get the Scar, MR762 is a watered down HK rifle and not worth it.
Thats like recommending a Kel-Tec
You seem to have money. Why not SIG751?
what's up /k/illas I've got a question about the US Army:
If I enlist as an SPC with an option 40 contract, let's say on my 22nd birthday, will I be free to go to Europe on my 26th birthday? Assuming the Army has no need to keep me active beyond the 4 year mark? I'm trying to plan out and streamline the next several years of my life. Thanks.
do you even remotely pay attention to current news ?
likely some serious shooting will start in the next few years if not 4 then 5-6-7-8 for sure etc
Once you sign a contract with uncle sam, you give up your life for 8 years at a minimum. Whether that be 3 active duty and 5 reserve/guard/IRR or 8 active, you still gotta give it up. Don't waste your time and life on some dumb shit you're gonna regret three years into. The benefits aren't that great anyhow.
>spent close to 700 dollars on a henry >it's shit I want to die
>>34050978 >loading tube is fucking AIDS casserole
So... you didn't understand that this rifle uses a loading tube before you spent $700 on it?
Also, you apparently don't know guns well enough to know that they all require a break-in period.
Dry lube for lever guns, you don't want anything dripping in the action. Work the action to smooth everything out, there are still sharp corners on a brand new gun and they will polish themselves down.
As for having issues cycling, you don't have to go slow, you have to be deliberate. If you're just floating the lever forward then back you're going to have issues. Snap it forward, firm and quick. When it has moved completely forward, snap the lever back, firm and quick. This should help. Practice with dummy rounds.
Is this your first gun?...genuinely curious?
>>34050978 >there's a hard limit on how fast you can actually cycle the lever or the whole gun just shits itself and refuses to work
I can almost guarantee you that you're short stroking it and that's what's giving you issues
$5 says that you are gripping the gun incorrectly. Holding one in the same way that you hold an automatic is the source of many of the problems that newcomers encounter with their snubnoses.
>When the military turns you down because you have Asperger's Syndrome, and according to DOD 6130.03, anybody on the autism spectrum is permanently disqualified from joining any branch of the armed forces. Is this fair? You could turn aspies and high functioning autists into some of the most cold blooded killers on the planet if you tried. I get that the low functioning ones that are pretty much retarded don't belong, but high functioning autists can have pretty much no problems with the right therapy.
how would i enlist though?
i thought you needed at least a green card
Nah, if you can get in and sign up you're golden.
but the internet told me they ask for documentation
like birth certificates and shit
So if Hilary Clinton wins 2020
I can just pretend to be an aspiring to Dodge the draft since Clinton will pick a fight and start a war with anyone Yeah I'm not fighting a war to spread liberal feminst ideals fuck that
Tell them you're a straight white male. It'll break the diversity quota.
Are there any Wehrmacht reenactors on /k/? I'm looking into purchasing a pair of replica jackboots for an early war impression, and daily use. The problem is, I'm not sure which vendor to go with. I've heard that At The Front's jackboots are of dubious quality, so I'll avoid them at least.
I've gone with lowboots up until now, since I've only done late war impressions. Any advice is appreciated.
Also, I just thought I'd ask your opinion. I've heard stories of NCOs and officers having the bottle green collar of the M36 tunic sewn onto later designs of the field blouse, just because they liked the look of it. Have you heard anything similar? I love the bottle green color as well, but I don't like the internal suspension system of the M36 and M40.
I got mine from SOF Militaria (based in the UK) but they were quite uncomfortable
Go for a pair of Russian boots with leather soles
The German boots with hobnails will be a nightmare if you have to walk on roads or pavement
How so? I'm assuming it will damage the hobnails? Or will it just make walking more difficult?
Plenty of /pol/ teens here op,dont you worry.
I have a pair of bundeswehr parade jackboots in sz 11 I'm willing to sell for a very good price. Still new looking.
Any dudes out there have any experience with the USP Compact? I'm getting one soon and I'm looking for the primo carry holster.
OP here, im thinking about the LightTuck kydex IWB from Vedder. Is there a better starter holster?
I have one I carry in a comptac mtac.
Should citizens be able to shoot police in self defense, especially in situations where the police escalated?
Of course. It's already been proven to be legal. There's an old case of some swat team breaking into the wrong house, only for the owner to shotgun one of them and the survivors sued for a shit load of money.
>pulling someone over for flashing their lights at you to tell you that your brights are on I can't wait for robot police. Too many cops are in it just for the power trip.
Lotta dumb people think they dindu nuffin wrong, even when they clearly did. Doesn't put them in a legally or morally superior position.
what are you referencing?
Did something happen?
I am looking for a 6.5 Creedmoor semi auto Bullpup (DPMS mag compatible). Does such a thing exist and if not how rich will I become designing it.
you can't maintain accuracy at that rate of fire let alone out of a semi auto. Better get sketchin faggot cause it sounds like you're designing from scratch
gecko45? are you finally back?
Is this the MDR killer?
you can't kill something that doesn't exist
6.5cr is for long distance
probably wouldn't cycle very well due to cartridge dimensions vs 223
so yeah keep dreaming
I live in a super humid area and am kind of paranoid about my guns getting rusty. I clean them once a month and rub a coat of CLP on them weather I'm shooting them or not, and I put silica packets in the cases, but unfortunately I live in a third floor apartment with no elevator so buying a heavy safe is just not an option, so right now they are sitting in foam cases, which I know is bad. if I use silica gel packets and regular cleaning will I offset that? or is there something else I should be doing
I shoot it once or twice a month, but I can't really miss with it below 25 yards which is why it's my HD gun. Just curious what's considered "long term storage?" If I shoo my guns more than once a month and CLP them after should I even worry about rust?
IMO long-term storage is anything over 6 months. Like if you have a gun for hunting and you only pull it out a month or so out of the year. An HD gun that is regularly shot, cleaned and lubricated doesn't need any special treatment unless you're in a really harsh environment(read salt water).
I carry a high-carbon-steel knife, I know.
This is just a Tip as a chemist I can give for the hardest problem. Also use this to remove rust spots, its unbelivable! Only kills the rust and get pink if its real rust. without acid
Alright, have a bit of a dilemma I'm dealing with. I'm looking to swap my current EDC for something different, and I have a couple offers that I'm considering. First off, is an M&P 9. I'm a fan of them, I've handled them, shot them, and I enjoy them.
Second option is a CZ P-07. Now, I have never really been a fan of the CZ 75 and the thin/narrow (whatever you wanna call it) slide, but I'm told the P-07's don't have that issue. I have no real experience with this model, and none of my local shops have any in stock right now to coon finger. Anyone have any input? Pros, cons, etc?
s&w is for police or wannabees
look at ruger sr9c
