Is the hk416 a good gun?

Check again, that's going to be one of the 22LR ones that H&K let someone else put their name on. If it tickles your pickle knock yourself out, but it isn't a real 416.

If it is a real 416 that fires 5.56mm and you didn't just miss a zero reading the price tag buy it quickly.

I'm going to guess this is what you were looking at:

>>
>>45226261
Yes
>>
>>45226269
Well in that case, if you really want a 22lr pinker that looks like an H&K 416 made by a company that primarily makes Airsoft guns then you can slightly overpay for that one from Cabelas.

I actually have a job, and my dad doesn't pay for me to shoot guns all day. E-celeb worship is so gay. Shooting guns is not hard once you get the basics down. Shooting 1,000 yards is much more impressive than pulling a 3lbs Geissele trigger fast and hitting shit ten yards in front of you. Jerry Miculek is the only "e-celeb" pro-shooter you should worship, because he's actually more than an e-celeb, and he trained for years with his own money to get to the point where he can pretty much pick up any firearm with any trigger and shoot fast with it. He's also a kindly old grandpa and not a tactifag wannabe. Same with Hickock45, but obviously he's not at Jerry's level (pretty much no one is).

I've hit an impasse with my medical waiver. They won't clear me, but they haven't given me a PDQ after two runs through USAREC.

Is it worth writing an appeal to the state governor or adjutant general since I'm going National Guard, or getting a note from upper brass? I'm going for 35-series and already have a relevant degree, and my recruiter has implied that some support from officers who actively want me to work for them would help, but I can't tell if he's just blowing smoke up my ass.
>>
>>45225919
You can try another branch.
>>
>>45226243
Since it's all at USAREC now I don't see how that would help at all, the bottleneck isn't within the branch system at this point. If anything it might be harder since with a more accessible officer cadre I'd have a better chance getting a direct line to an officer who could vouch for me, instead of being one among tens of thousands.

Nope, rank and file would not be wearing padded armor. Higher ranks would be the ones wearing padded jackets, the full body coverage was just fancy clothes and feathers, more akin to a surcoat.
>>
>>45199746
They didn't make effective use of it. Just means they have more durable weapons. I would actually find the aztec weapons superior because the are better at mixed arms combat. They both are primative but the zulus in principle didn't understand as a collective the fundamentals of their own tactics, only that they worked, the aztecs know why their tactics worked and would adapt.

The zulus are more of a cautionary tale of uplifting a civilization where as the aztecs do a better job of explaining the mind set of early man. Had the incans and aztec been left alone they would have developed into an iron or bronze age. But it really is suprizing how advanced they were for a stone technology based civilization.

Zulus are much bigger than aztecs and their assegais are made of steel.

Ingenious system, but not necessarily the best system for a handgun used for extended work, and possibly not great for dirty conditions.
The HK P7 if I recall correctly, needed a heat shield above the trigger, because tapping gasses into a closed chamber in a small pistol causes the pistol to get very hot.
The snall holes for tapping the gas into the delaying chamber also strike me as something that might have issues with fowling and dirt, and the pistol might have issues if submerged under water and removed.
On the other hand, the pistols seem simpler in some ways, so could probably be cleaned more easily.
>>
>>45219859
yeah, I wonder why it isn't used everywhere instead of gas pistons or DI
since the pressure is resisting instead of driving, it supposedly offers resistance proportional to the kick that the recoil is going to deliver, so you won't need to adjust it as would be the case with gas operation

Forces of the unknown have caused our world to merge/combine with a typical (or not-so-typical) fantasy world. Old world governments have managed to hold on to major urban and suburban areas, but rural areas range from fragile peace to complete chaos. People and towns from either side suddenly find themselves in a new realm, and portals going between both worlds are scattered throughout the lands.

There are a lot of contenders for absolute shittiest Generals, Chiefs of Staff, PMs and Presidents and royalty.

My money goes to Douglas Haig, the man convinced Cavalry would be anything other than MG08 fodder.

He also gifted us with some BRILLIANT insight:

"Obviously, the greater the length of the war, the higher is likely to be the number of casualties in it on either side."

"Once the mass of the defending infantry become possessed of low morale, the battle is as good as lost."

How did they fight wars before this God-tier intellect?

Honorable mentions to Conrad von Hotzendorf for starting this shit over some Serb shit, and Erich von Falkenhayn for just getting buttfucked three ways at once.

Do you understand the pre-war doctrines, and the number of doctrine changes that occurred during the span of the war itself?

No war had ever been even remotely on the scale that ww1 occurred at, no one could prepare for it.

I agree that intelligence services are corrupt, and self-serving, but that is unrelated to ww1.

>>The idea that WW1 was just inbred idiot noblemen sending waves of cannon fodder to their deaths is primarily socialist propaganda (they were certain that the war would create a global revolution and got severely butthurt when it wouldn't happen).

A lot of the "lions led by donkeys" trope also stems from the 1960s fuck-you-dad era counterculture ("Oh! What a Lovely War" has a lot to answer for in this regard) which has only been repeated and reinforced by subsequent generations of artists which accepted that misinformed canon and effectively rewrote history - most Brits' own knowledge of the Western Front probably cones from Blackadder Goes Forth than any actual study. Films like 1917 are incredibly radical for the simple fact that they're willing to admit that not everybody over the rank of sergeant was a drooling cretin.
