Did you guys fall for the 9mm meme?
Why didn't your superior brain tell you that all calibers benefited from ammo advances?
Why would every real agency use .357SIG and recommend .380+P+ aka 9meme to you newfags?
Congrats on your arsenal (You) have a .22three and a half-powered 357

5.7x28mm beat out 9mm in NATO trials. The only reason it's not the standard now is Germany freaking the fuck out that their worse cartridge lost.

This.

>>47057510
Those test were largely about penetration.
And what does 5.7 beating 4.6 have to do with anything related to 9mm still being the most prolific cartridge in the world?
>>
>>47057510
>their worse cartridge lost.
I mean the cartridge is over 100 years old, I don't understand why faggots who engage in caliber wars and bitch about muh fuddyfive and 9lolimeter don't take that into account. Both of them were revolutionary at the time, but ballistics science has advanced tremendously since then. The reason 5.7 wasn't adopted is because it isn't so good to justify the cost of adopting a completely new cartridge and spend countless millions of dollars replacing all the arms that use 9mm. Especially since 9mm isn't really used that much in a military context for your average infantryman.
>>
>>47057488
Both those are retarded takes. The military makes a contract (getting 9mm pistols, and ammunition), then gets the lowest bidder to manufacture it.

The point behind using 9mm is the same as 5.56mm. You can carry significantly more of it than .45 or 7.62mm. Especially since FMJ handgun rounds have shit "stopping power" regardless of caliber, and are a last ditch resort tool.

made 10+ orders, literally never had a problem with them. They even honored multiple orders with a bugged coupon code for $30 off any order, and just paid shipping.

I want to talk about take-down and foldable rifles. I'm really interested in a portable rifle like this and am deciding on what I should save up for.
The Keltec sub2000 gen2 seems really interesting, I'd get a 9mm one since I already have a 9mm pistol. But I don't know how much Improvement on range/power/accuracy you get from 9mm through a rifle length barrel.
Ive also thought about a .357 take down lever gun, but Lucky Gunner just made a video on .357 and .44 magun lever guns and they both just really were not good. The imrpovement on range/accuracy/power they got from a rifle length barrel just really doesn't seem worth much at all.
Chiappa made those Little Badger single shot foldable rifles, and I'd honestly really like to have the .22 magnum Little Badger, but they are sold out literally everywhere.
The Keltec SU-16 is a proper .223 semi-auto rifle that folds, it seems awesome but it certainly comes with a higher price tag.
What take downs do you guys like? What do you own?

.300 blk is cheaper than .357mag or .44 mag.
If you need a long gun, you need a rifle caliber/shotgun gauge, not the same weak ass shit your pistol carries.

France was based, but yes, modern france is a shithole, fuck em.
>>
>>47057799
Don't forget that after the British and America lost countless lives liberating their shithole country in WWII, de Gaulle had the audacity to kick us all out of the country and take credit for liberating France himself.

Then there was that time that they sold anti-ship missiles to an avowed enemy of a NATO ally (Argentina), while also allowing their missile techs to continue performing maintenance and calibration on said missiles during the Falklands War.

Then there was that time they stabbed the Arabs in the back and divided up the Middle East as it pleased them, then had the nerve to blame the United States for instability in the region.

Then of course who could forget about how frogs and their government constantly accuses the United States of being a systematically racist country that should pay reparations to the negros, yet when Haiti asked them for reparations they said no and asked us to embargo Haiti until they quit asking.

French really are the absolute fucking cunts of Europe. Worthless people, worthless nation.

For a basic ar training at closer ranges makes more sense. Maybe not that close, but not like 200 yards away. If you've just got irons and an unmagnified sight, training at long range would be a waste of time. If you're going for range, you'd be better off with more or less static training with a proper scope and what not.
As well as the fact that most domestic engagements would happen at closer ranges.
>>
>>47057791
Are you a noguns?
For ARs, up close needs more training than 15-100yds, because close range you have a POA/POI difference, and you need to drill it enough to unconsciously know your hold overs.
>>
>>47057682
The interesting thing about this, is that it's life imitating art. All these kids have to go by in regards to combat is Call of Duty knowledge, so they engage the enemy that way (up close and personal). Kinda like how everyone now thinks about double leg takedowns and submissions in street fights now that MMA became widespread. Though I agree with Kyles actions and love that he killed two degenerates and permanently maimed a third, he did get lucky and really showed exactly WHY you don't want to run around COD style. At any point in time anyone of those strikes could have been a KO blow or he could have been disarmed or shot in the back as he fled. A rifles main advantage is it's ability to kill at a distance and he'd have been better served using it that way. Sure close quarters combat CAN happen and you SHOULD train for it but if you're training for an actual civil war shtf boogaloo scenario and the majority of your training consists clearing your house and mag dumping at paper targets a few feet away you will be picked off by a guy using iron sights on his AR at 200 yards +. Actual real combat is two groups of armed men blasting at each other with rifle rounds the moment they become aware of each other which is usually anywhere from 100 to 300 yards depending on the landscape.

>>47057668
You dont want all the negatives of a lever action with all the negatives of a bolt action?
>>
>>47057676
you could do it with a spring loaded lifting arm, but it might want to fling the next round out of the gun right behind the ejected empty. Running the lifting arm through the action of the bolt, using your hand like you do a lever action, might take some crazy german space magic, or maybe you could run a simple lever along the side that's actuated by the locking lug sliding through the channel it normally goes through.
>>
>>47057800
What I mean is, tube fed, you'd still have to use flat or round board bullets, rather than spire/Spitzer points.
>>
>>47057810
yes, I understand that. There's a part in a lever action that holds the on-deck round in the tube, and working the action moves it into position for it to cradle the round as it pops out of the tube, and lifts it into position for the now-closing bolt to push it into the chamber. Your gun will need that part, just trying to figure out how to run it.

M16A2 is more aesthetic than M16A1. Change my mind. Pro tip: you can’t.

They are pretty good, everything I've ordered from them has been well built using quality parts. This is the cheapest "mil-spec" A2 upper you'll find, anything cheaper and it'll likely have a HBAR 1/9 barrel, or one that's not chrome lined, anything more expensive isn't worth it. As for the lower, get a PSA Rifle lower or a Aero Rifle lower. Similar price range, Aero will probably be a bit nicer in fit+finish.

In Western doctrine, Destroyers are anti air primarily.
Frigates are ASW.

>>47057042
at least on paper, the cruiser is meant for AA in a carrier group
2 destroyers are used for ASW

although cruisers and destroyers have their capabilities blurred today, destroyers definitely were made with ASW in mind

theres also an attack sub in the group, so the destroyer and subs work in tandem to hunt enemy subs
>>
>>47056876
Short range AA almost CIWS level.
Kalibr mostly for 91R1 ASROC.
Uran is small surface defense.

Carry big 650mm torpedoes! Nuclear depth charge! Paket small torpedoes! New A-190-1 gun for mini depth charge munitions! New munitions for RBU-6000 antisub rockets including guided saturation depth charges! New towed sonar! Also one of few ships to carry upgraded Shkval-2 torpedoes!
>>
This east/west doctrinal designation is a technicality, The new Type 26 ASW frigates that the Brits are building are 7000 tons, the same displacement as a Russian Udaloy destroyer. Both are well into cruiser weights by ww2 standards
