Sucks man. You're probably young and dumb, like everyone was. Disqualification can be really arbitrary sometimes. I personally got in with a fairly obvious disqualifer but the MEPS doc didn't give a shit and attributed it to something else.

Prvi Partisan has done runs of 5.45x39 before.

>>
>>44564277
Have they? I haven't seen that. Hopefully they'd step up production if Russian ammo plants get sanctioned, but I still doubt it'd be as easily accessible and/or as 7.62x39. Privi Partisan is one I forgot to include with other sources of 7.62x39 as well. In fact they might be the cheapest. I haven't had to check in a while.

It doesn't actually take hours for me to clean, just that I have to let the rifle sit for hours to fully dry. What ultimately rusts the rifle is moisture; AKs in ultra arid environments don't rust simply because there's no moisture for the corrosive salts to pull. The water washes away said salts, true, but if you just leave traces of water in the little spaces of the rifle: rust. Hence I leave everything out exposed to the air for the water to evaporate.

With noncorrosive ammo I just wipe with CLP and put it away.

Without having a tantrum or coming across as a seething poorfag, can you elaborate on why investing in being able to night shoot with ease is a bad thing? My PVS14 and PEQ2 only cost about 2 grand altogether with mounts, and it allows me to shoot coyotes on my property in total darkness, right from my deck if I feel like it. They smell me, but they think I cant see them so you can get within 20 feet of them before they bolt, not that they get the chance.
>>
>>44564298
>shooting coyotes at night
That's a justified reason. I'm ok with that one. I'm more so talking about the guys who only buy this shit to LARP or look cool at the range with their crye carriers and ops cores.
>>
>>44564282
>So let me get this straight, if I buy a BMW or nice classic car that costs 10x as much as NODs, that's perfectly sensible to you
The problem here is that you think the NODs are related to the gun hobby, when its actually dress-up cosplay.

>>44562082
No, obviously.

Pistol caliber sub machineguns come from a time when line infantry where carrying around 4' bolt actions. The STG, and later the AKM effectively blended both into a single weapon system. Needing to hit targets at 600m+ is now the exception, and a modern carbine does the job from interior spaces all the way out to that 600m.

Never been a tanker, so I will tip the hat to them maybe needing a subgun, but that and similar roles are the only exception in favor of sub machineguns.
>>
>>44563725
Tanker. No we don't need peashooters. We got plenty of room for rifle caliber weapons on board. PDW's are obsolete and a meme.
>>
>>44563736
Thank you. And everyone wants to talk about rear troops. I was SATCOM. No solider Im aware of had any trouble toting around a 6.5lb M4.

I literally cant imagine a proper role for that new B&T within the Army. Socom gets whatever they need on a mission by mission basis, so thats moot. Ive legit got nothing.

The only time I see them coming back in the future would be WWIII where nations need millions of simple blowbacks, but with the advent of nuclear tech, I dont foresee that type of war happening ever again.

I can understand why you think that, people make up a lot of shit on here. I cannot verify that he was picked up but that's what I heard. I haven't seen him in days. My father was told about it by another cashier who works there and was on shift when it happened. The only reason I know about his comments on the RCMP pages is because my father added him on Facebook. He was a really cool guy, I'd stop to talk to him about music or shit he was reading. I genuinely wonder what the fuck happened. Feel free to discount it, I can't prove it and I don't know much but that's what I've been told and I haven't seen him in a few days.

Who wins?
Is nuclear winter a real possibility?
Can the burgers shoot down all/most Chinese ICBMSs?
Can the Chinese sink carrier battlegroups with nukes?
Could the US successfully decapitate the Chinese deterrent?
>>
>>44564219
The US has significantly more warheads than China and less hyper-dense urban centers. On top of that, Chinese delivery methods currently mean that, at most, maybe half the arsenal can actually hit US territory outside of Guam and Hawaii. Nuclear war with China would be a disaster, but not nearly as bad as one with Russia would be.

There's a reason China's nuclear stance is minimum credible threat.
>>
>>44564219
>Who wins?
USA 100%. Of course there would be heavy losses on both sides but China still lacks delivery systems compared to USA or even Russia.

>Is nuclear winter a real possibility?
Probably not.

>Can the burgers shoot down all/most Chinese ICBMSs?
Of course not

>Can the Chinese sink carrier battlegroups with nukes?
Probably, depending on where they're stationed.

>Could the US successfully decapitate the Chinese deterrent?
It could but there's no guarantee, too much factors to take into account.

Bad or Unfavorable for China

And yet despite this, South Vietnam fell just several years later because there wasn't enough political will to keep them supplied and able to hold off the North.

The Soviets left a similarly in charge communist government in Afghanistan that held on pretty well, but collapsed as soon as the Soviets did.

Training doesn't fix Muslims but it worked well with North Korea, China (how's that for a huge success?) and Viet Nam.

Came into this thread to shittalk Rooskies, instead 3/4 of the thread is just derailed Vietnam talk. This is why I don't come here very often, zioperheads and rednecks will argue this beyond the grave.
As for the training, Russians (and the Soviets) do seem to incur a large number of casualties, in all branches of the armed forces. I also can't help but thing about the Moscow theatre crisis and that school siege, where untold numbers of people got killed. I guess Russia has, or had the population to be able to afford such losses, (see: WWII) but they almost remind me of the Chinese in a way, where they seem to value life less. Probably because life as a Russian isn't very great in the first place, especially if you're from the lower classes. I think it's less about the training and more about something cultural.

Arm stamina and they have plans for other implementations. Can't ads with a 22“ m1a, reap, 50rnd with m61 the entire night customs run, feelsgoodman
At the end of the day meta m4 or meta 308 mdr attract a lot of attention, get a group of scavs who don't give a shit and they get to enjoy all that fancy plastic.
Short fuse grenades on the other hand. They need to figure out how to balance thermals, they needed the visuals already but they are still way common, we are late into patch, people sitting at 90 plus million from weapon case trades, and rely on thermals, hard to give them up, usually one dude in my group still takes one before launching when the rest of us are taking a break from them. Have to find the Bush wookies and ability to engage at a distance on some of the maps.
Not sure how they'd do that, visually they suck compared to RL counterparts, they need to nerf them price wise like the goggles, not sure what the answer could be other than that
