Buying my first gun online, so what do I do.

Do I place the order and contact the FFL I want it transfered to? or will they just call me when it shows up, most places it says to contact your FFL first?

Actually had a shop close down on me once. It was a small store attached to some engine shop that happened to be close by. I was probably the only customer that place had for years. I sent stuff there all the time, got to the point I didn't even bother sending an email. Sent over a rifle at one point, saw it was delivered and didn't get a call for a week. Turns out the lady who ran it died and the owner who luckily had the ffl didn't want to bother with the place anymore and just closed the doors.

Always let them know is the TL;DR.

If you wanted to eliminate the second strike capabilities in a nuclear war, how hard would it be sink the enemies SSBN's and destory his missile silos?

Well it depends, but the Russian nuke sub stuff has that sinking/irradiate crew functionality built in so you just do nothing and their missiles literally never hit what they are aimed at so just let them launch anyway as they have a 50/50 of just hitting something Russian

Maybe a high level intelligence operation in which you manage to recruit someone near the top of their command structure who knows all the pertinent details of their nuclear forces. Even if you bagged such a mole though, there's a strong possibility you wouldn't be able to eliminate all of their units, especially the SSBNS which are hidden in the wild west that is the ocean. Your side could still be facing massive casualties in the event of war.

Probably in 50-100 years from now computers will have become so advanced and technology so radically altered that questions like this will seem elementary. In the year 2119, whichever power's computer systems are the most advanced will have the military technological advantage and will rule the world.

Primitive sneak attack on silos method I thought of: What if you had a fleet of commercial dump trucks and filled them with boulders. A few hours before you launch your strategic nuclear attack, these trucks smash through the gates of missile silo facilities in the enemy country and dump their cargo of rocks onto the missile hatches. When the hatches blow open to launch the ICBMs the rocks fall in and damage the missile. It blows up in the silo or is so messed up that it won't hit its target. Got the idea after listening to a podcast about that ICBM that blew up because a guy dropped a wrench while working on it.

Is it actually a good idea to keep a smaller, secondary gun with you or is it just extra steps in your EDC prep? The likelihood of being a situation where your main pistol is taken or made inoperable seems small, but I have a friend who insists on having two guns. Thoughts?

Unnecessary but less of a meme than carrying a backup knife for SD reasons. People, even CCWers, getting in fights where an attacker attempts to grab their firearm are not unheard of and a second firearm is the best tool for that situation. It's also true that no draw from the waistline will ever be as quick as drawing a gun from a jacket pocket that you already have your hands on, or even simply firing through that jacket pocket if the situation allows. Afterall, if crackhead or homeless person with a hand in his pocket is harassing you for change in a parking lot putting your hand in your pocket is perfectly fine, but clearing your garment and sticking your hand in your waistline putting it on a gun is brandishing in most jurisdictions. At the end of the day they certainly do have meaningful uses IMO.

Side note, if a dedicated backup gun as opposed to a pocket gun is what you're after then i personally think that .38 snubbies like the LCR or S&W J frames are head and shoulders above autoloaders.

If you don't mind carrying it, I figure it can't hurt.

>>40637522
There's that too, like if something ever goes completely tits up, and you needed to arm another person.
Doesn't seem that likely, but then, some people carry a bunch of extra magazines for their carry pistol, when in reality, it's rare for DGU to involve more than like 2 shots fired.

If it's what you're comfortable with, and as long as you're good and ready with your guns, and have practiced, you should be alright.

Metro Exodus Bullpup AK.

It appears they've redesign the Metro Bullpup AK into something abit more believable.

Although, It lacks the P90 style magazine.

But this design looks like someone has just moved the trigger assembly forward and swap over it's stock into a bullpup config.

It looks very much like the SA80.

Gas tube is miles away and not even close to being lined up with where the piston would be on the bolt.

Still like this design better than the one that has the gas tube dump into the mag though.

I'm looking to build a DMR in .308 that will be a nail driver at 1000 yards, but can't decide on the AR-10 or M1A. I recently came into a nice little inheritance, so money is no object for this project. Anything you can recommend that's capable of sub-MOA accuracy out of the box is also welcomed.
19 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>>40637239
This. Id personally go for the 300 winmag, seeing as how there are a lot more of that ammo floating around, but a 6.5 Creedmore is also very relaible at 1000 yds.
>>
>>40634187
An AR-10 is far better suited for the task. It will be much easier and cheaper to build one that will print the groups you want, plus that rifle will retain that accuracy better with much less effort.

An M1A is a pretty decent rifle too, but under normal circumstances usually shoots about 2-3 MOA. It is more of a cold war battle rifle like a FAL or G3 that can be kludged into a DMR role, where the AR-10 is far better suited to that task out of the box by the nature of its design.

If you have a lot of money to blow I recommend an LMT.
>1000yd
Everyone says that but it's really pushing at the limits of .308, which is far better suited for 800yd and in.
>>40634225
Yeahno, M1As can be 1 MOA with a bit of fuckery and are usually about 2-3 for a standard rifle once it's tuned in. A particularly nice AR-10 can easily group under an inch out of the box, you just won't see that with a poorfag PSA kit build.
>>40634321
Upper/lower play has surprisingly little influence on the actual accuracy of an AR, since most of what matters is in the upper. It's easy to snug up with an accu-wedge or you can just get a machined pair that fit perfectly with no wobble. In fact just about any well made AR-10 won't have any wobble to begin with. Combine that with a decent free-floated barrel and you can get a pretty damned accurate rifle.

Compared to bolt-actions, yes a bolt gun will be more accurate per dollar spent but you can absolutely get a 1 MOA capable AR-10 these days. Possibly even better depending how deep your pockets are.

Also if money is really no object you could look into the 300 win mag semiautos. They are sub moa but are stupid expensive and you should really start with something cheaper to practice with.
The msr10 long range is sub moa with 6.5 and atleast 1moa with 308
The expensive savage bolts are sub moa

OP this video is pretty informative, and the small frame ar-10s really are the way to go:

Do you think you could design a functional firearm? Not necessarily build it yourself, but put together a proper set of blueprints for a design completely your own? You could use any software you desire, but no reference material aside from cartridge specifications.

Yes, you can do whatever you can imagine. Take your idea, and imagine a spring behind the rear section, pressing the pipe (bolt) forward. Why couldn't there be a trigger with a notch on top, holding that section back until it is pulled?

Look at something like this M3 Grease Gun operating. It looks complex, but when you focus on each individual mechanical operation, it's pretty simple.

I have no doubt given the right stuff I could make something resembling a really crude single shot bolt action and break action gun, entirely from scratch.
An open-bolt semi like the Sten gun is also completely possible, especially if we're allowed to borrow magazines from other guns.

Delayed blowback: no.
