From a purely thermophysical perspective freezing is a good thing, as when frozen you also have the fusion point where the temperature does not rise as the gun pumps heat into it, in addition to the vaporisation point.
Whichever let's you put more lead downrange.
When I said anti-freeze, I was thinking of the solution they put into cars. Has a lower freezing point compared to water and a slightly higher boiling point as well. Also, having water freeze is probably a bad thing as you'll inevitably melt only the nearby ice but can't transfer the thermal energy around quick enough to make use of the other frozen bits around. At least compared to the vibrations of the gun firing and moving the water inside the jacket thus distributing the energy around more evenly.

How much recoil is too much for you?
45 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
My dad has a 7.82 Lazeroni, which is a lightweight Sako action. Not a fun rifle at all.
I dont know if it was the shitty bench I was shooting at or if im just a lanklet but my kar98k had an uncomfortable amount of recoil
I find a .50 BMG to be ridiculous even though people tell me a 12 gauge slug is worse, but I don't feel it. I like 12 gauge slugs. Kachunk and all.
There's plenty of calibers that, on their own, don't really kick as bad as some others but just feel more comfortable.
I vastly prefer the Tokarev's 7,62x25 over the 9mm Makarov, and firing semi from a vz58 feels way worse than a 3round burst from an AK47 despite being the same caliber.
Lee Enfield No. 1 are way more ergonomic than the No. 4's so the latter feels worse to shoot since I can't bunch it up my shoulder as well, etc.

When it comes to unexpected recoil, however:
These fuckers in picrel from an M95 Steyr are really unassuming but are a real punch. Closest thing would be an 8x60S from a big-game SBR or a very lightweight .270Win rifle.

Anyway, rant over.
Picrel takes the cake for me, if only to avoid listing a .50BMG
I never fired Creedmoor or anything neck-filled Express so I guess I'm a faggot.
post body, side profile
8mm Mauser is pretty slow, it might shove, but it shouldn't kick.
Then again, everyone complaining about recoil outside of bubba's-pissin-hot-loads and meme big game cartridges is a pussy anyway.

I remember getting my 5 1/2 " SW 29 and trying it out for the first time.
"oooh 44" and "ahhhh I've seen those videos where the recoil makes the muzzle flip into their faces" and whatnot, so I was, quite frankly, a bit scared.
I loaded only a single shot just to be sure, assumed the position I learned from Jerry and then... it wasn't that bad. I even was quickly able to shoot one-handed (not very good, but it didn't hurt or anything).
No idea if that barrel length already swallows a lot of the recoil, but boy did I buy into the meme.

I was just looking into the Occupation of Vera Cruz in 1914, and found pic related. Am I fucking crazy, or is that a Spencer shotgun the guy on the right is holding? It's got the sort of concave by the rear sights where the Spencer ejects, which is absent on say, a Winchester 1897 or any of the other shotguns commonly known to have been used in WWI.
I never knew the Spencer (shotgun) saw military adoption, but this article seems to show the Model 1886 was tested by Springfield Armory, with limited numbers being accepted for guarding prisoners,

Am I mistaking the shotgun or is this a super rare US military Spencer?
Also, does anyone know what model field-gun this is?
It could have been used for guarding prisoners and then pressed into service. Spencer shotguns were used in prisons and some were bought by the military.
The Navy had field guns for equipping naval brigades, but I'm not sure of their designation. Though if memory serves, they were 3-inchers

Iran would never try to shoot at a US carrier, because Iran actually wants to AVOID war with the US, believe it or not.

Been dealing with a bit of flu and just realized all the weapons in the world don't mean shit in a survival scenario when being a little sick can throw you completely off your game. When you are sick you don't think sharp, can't move as well, get tired quickly, and you make a ton of noise. Really the only way to survive is to join a band that will protect each other.

There used to be a chicken in Alabama that could tell the future and it would do it for just 25 cents. A guy wrote a song about it.
Well I don't have kids or a woman and I'd just assume leave this world standing righteous and clean. A younger man, a man with a family, I could totally understand clawing to hang on.
>Really the only way to survive is to join a band that will protect each other.
Oh you mean like a country? With a government and public services?
Just like in real life it's all about your support network. Your family, your friends, your community.
What you need most are people you can trust.
In a worst case scenario more then ever.
Guns are one of the least useful tools in such situations, until you need them when they become very important.

I had a very strange dream last night. I was in a Russian submarine, I think I was a crew member. We surfaced in what looked like an arctic environment and launched several ICBM's with what I believe are nuclear payloads at multiple targets, one of which we were able to see the mushroom cloud of. I never have had a dream like this but thought maybe someone else might be having similar dreams. I am not interested in international affairs but often do have dreams which end up coming true so I was concerned when I woke up. Anyone having similar experiences lately?

A few weeks ago I dreamt of being in the Air Force and playing baseball at an airbase before being called back to my bunk by my CO. I struggled to put my pants on as I changed out of my outfit for baseball which was like a tank top and sweat pants.

A couple weeks ago I dreamed that I was in the greater Seattle area when it got nuked. I saw the flash of light out of the window and braced for the shock wave to reach my building. And as I braced for impact I thought to myself; "oh great, now the gay Seattlites will be whining because they're gonna be radioactive and we will have to deal with their shit". But then there were 3-4 flashes from nukes from various directions, and thats when I realized that everything is actually great, because now we will not have to worry about anything ever again.

All of that happened in the span of a few seconds.

Do you think that dreams come true?

>US Army no longer practices with bayonets unlike the Marines
You have to design a military force designed to get in close with the US Army and take advantage of its weakness at melee with your own melee weapons. How would you do it, and what melee weapons would you give your military?

>Incredibly well when they were able to close the gap.
"Incredibly well" in that case meaning they *STILL* suffered massively lopsided losses, which I guess is kind of an improvement over just getting slaughtered entirely one-sidedly all the times they didn't. Which was most of the time. And that was in an era before machineguns became truly widespread.

You outfitting and transporting these men to the front will cost you more than the bullets they'll die from to no effect. Your plan is a waste of time, effort, resources and lives. You want "criminals, retards and invalids" to be useful, let them dig ditches, lay mines etc.
Yawn, seethe more about another round of bong yarn-spinning getting called out for being pathetically obvious.
Maybe pogs don’t need to know how to bayonet a yellow person. Anyways, the current philosophy is the knife is a last resort/tertiary therefore it’s usually mounted on the hip or on your gear. Since we use slings pretty much always, having your bayonet attached could be a negative. Just my thought.
If you’re a combat infantry MOS you still do bayonet drills

Why don't slamfire pipe shotguns blow up? Consider the following:
>minimum bolt weight for a blowback 12 gauge is roughly 9 lbs, pipe weighs maybe 1 lb
>about 7200 lbs of bolt thrust, acting against only the mass of the pipe and resistance from your arm
What am I missing here?
19 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
>>Everything that happens before firing (the slam) is irrelevant since the pipe is stopped right before firing.
The shooter's muscles are still pushing forward even though the pipe is stopped. It's the forward force being applied, not the forward motion, which is relevant here. The shell fires faster than the user can react and stop pushing forward.
>A gun can become a pipe bomb if the case ruptures
a pipe bomb requires both sides to be sealed
its never sealed on a slamfire
on an actual gun the chamber is bigger than the barrel, the bullet/wad have to squeeze down the barrel.
with the 3/4 pipe the wad is undersized. on the shell end the shell expands and bulges but it still not going to reach that same peak psi since the other end is uncapped.
people on youtube have stuck 3.5 inch slugs in slamfires shoved in a vice and yanked. nothing exploded. sometimes the receiver pipe would fly off cause it wasnt secured that well. cant find the vids anymore.

its sorta like people people shooting 50cal in 12 gauge shotguns. the brass bulges to hell but it doesnt kaboom since its not a perfect seal in the front. the shotgun isnt facing peak 50cal psi
Interesting, I guess there really must not be much pressure in these things. Makes me wonder if you'd get higher velocities from a factory made slamfire, the only one I'm aware of is the Cobray Terminator. But I kinda doubt Cobray cared about maximizing performance.
>I guess there really must not be much pressure in these things
theres enough pressure to kill you
but not enough to blow up the pipe
I ask the question not because I'm curious but because your answer would reveal the problem in your thinking and thus end this gay thread.

A lot of it is, but Sig 10mm or Magtech isn't really that hard to find for range plinking and it's already loaded to levels that would kaboom a .40.
retarded take, SMGs were always traditionally designed for the 150 meter range and the point of PDWs was to bridge the gap between SMGs (150 yards) and assault rifles (300-500 yards)
