> He was a sensitive man who kept a journal and seemed far better equipped for winning hearts and minds than for combat command. But he got one, and I remember flying out to visit his fire base the night after it had been attacked by an NVA sapper unit. Most of the combat troops I had been out on an operation, so this colonel mustered a motley crew of clerks and cooks and drove the sappers off, chasing them across tile rice paddies and killing dozens of these elite enemy troops by the light of flares. That morning, as they were surveying what they had done and loading the dead NVA--all naked and covered with grease and mud so they could penetrate the barbed wire--on mechanical mules like so much garbage, there was a look of beatific contentment on tile colonel's face that I had not seen except in charismatic churches. It was the look of a person transported into ecstasy.

Where? Combat in a metropolitan city versus the mountains of Afghanistan require 2 very different rounds. If its urban 7.62x39 works great out of short barrels and has excellent material penetration. If its long range though, 6.5 grendel is better. However if you need to operate in both environments 5.56 is the intermediate among intermediates as it does fine at long and short range while not being exceptional

So /k/, I was thinking about picking up a new S&W 648 to fill this void. I don’t have a wheel gun and it looks fun to plink with. Would you guys suggest I go with something different if I was only going to ever purchase one fun chambered in that round? Open to rifles or pistols but want to keep the price around $650 like the S&W.

Also, 22magnum thread I guess.

>>46774883
is it worth $500 more to have an eight instead of six round chamber, a SA/DA instead of purely SA and a much easier time reloading? personally for me no. your situation might be different.

the ruger single nine might be an intriguing middle ground, it has a loading gate and is SA but also has a big nine round chamber. not convertible between .22lr and .22wmr, though. though nor is the 648 to my recollection.
>>
>>46774458
You look like shit
>>
>>46774970
The 648 is not convertible either to my knowledge. The SA/DA seems like a plus to me. I honestly hadn’t considered the heritage. Fuck me I’ll probably end up with both.
>>
>>46775027
SA/DA may appear to have the best of both worlds but honestly its kinda shit unless you really plan on just shooting it DA 99% of the time. for SA shooting you want a purely SA revolver, the trigger pull and reset is way better on SA's than SA/DA's.

Lol no.
>>
>>46773415
I disagree for the most part. I think squad has genuinely found the best middle ground between Battlefield and Arma. It does a good job of funneling players into a teamwork oriented environment if they want basic things like ammo, revives and spawns but still holds onto most of the playground 'do whatever seems fun' feel of battlefield. I've got 500 hours on Squad, typically get ~20-30 kills a game and really help my squad get stuff done. Whenever I hear some autist try to micromanage his squad and yell at them, "I play pro-squad", they are typically not very good and are clearly not having very much fun.

I'm confused. Isn't this basically just a blinking LED? I used to play disk golf at night, and we'd just tape a watch battery and LED to the bottom of a disk so we could see it. IR LEDs aren't much more expensive.

>>46773687
You can get them new for $25. It's just an IR strobe that pops on to a 9v. It's potted in epoxy, there's no controls or anything.
>>
>>46776018
Do you know where I can get the high power LED component? I want to make some 3D printed replicas for LARPing so I don't risk my original downed pilot strobe. I imagine the blink pattern can be done with a 555 timer or an arduino if you want programmable control (a bit overkill).

All sights will need a riser of some kind or they will be hilariously low on an AR
The question is whether the riser is "absolute" or "lower 1/3rd" height

Get a lower 1/3 height one and it wont be a problem

On red dots it doesnt block the dot and it also is a good reference point to look at in case youre looking at a bad angle and lost the dot, and for higher power optics it becomes a black blur that covers nothing
