Do you think Mexico would improve if they had something similar to the second amendment?

They technically have it. But they made it useless by drafting it in such a way that it cancels itself.
I know. It is unfortunate.

What does an $1100 pump action shotgun do that a maverick 88 doesnt?

Higher grades of steel can be quite a bit more. Want it made out of stainless steel? That'll be more too.
Is stainless better tho? I avoid that shit in knives so IDK why I would want it in my guns
I mean, it's more corrosion resistant, but harder to machine and more expensive because of nickel and chromium content.
>why would steel that has a better ability to stay clean and has a good ratio of strength to weight but is known for having poor edge maintenance be used more for guns than for knives.

Is Grendel the best AR15 chambering that is practical?
55 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
They’re stilling selling their own “MkW-15” platform in both 6.5mm Grendel and .458 SOCOM, and they can both handle hotter loads than are safe for the standard bolts meant to fit in an AR-15
>said bolt face requires quite a bit of weakening to fit the x39 cartridge base.
That, and the larger case head are why 6.5mm Grendel is loaded to lower pressures than 5.56, as you probably know. Sure, a new platform would allow a stronger bolt and higher pressures, but it would also allow higher OAL, so why not go with something like .264 USA?
Why not go straight to the AR-10 then, with something like 6.5 or, even better, 6mm Creedmoor? I don't see the point of an inter-intermediate compromise that can't reach 3000FPS - although I admit that is a rather personal opinion.
Fair enough. I run mine with a can, so shorter is better. But both lengths will work very well for most purposes.
6mm Creedmoor AR-10 would be a great standard-issue rifle if they could they could make an EPR style cartridge with high BC and good velocity from a 14.5” or 16” or whatever barrel-length is desired. But if you know from the start that you want polymer-cased ammo and specific performance from a specific barrel-length and projectile then a lighter and shorter cartridge than 6mm Creedmoor can be adopted with performance that is close enough.

Pylon industries or the guys who turned the good SA80 prototypes into a shit production gun?

whatever you say
They started doing serial productions only 10 years ago and their first model has notorious reliability issues, absurd maintenance cost and even their newest ones have ridiculous wait time for spare and replacements parts.
TL;DWs on the vids?
Mostly its going to be stories of engineers that are generally good at mechanical work not being good with the specifics of firearm engineering.
It makes sense. There's a lot to the technicalities of guns that don't exist elsewhere. And vice-versa.
I wouldn't put HK in charge of putting a car into production. They don't understand how it works, even if all the component parts individually are basically things they're familiar with.

Its just that firearms are underrated in some aspects as to their technical difficulty.
In that they're not complex as a whole, even complex firearms are notably less so than like again a car, or for OP, a missile. But they're heavily involved in the small details.

Approximately what proportion of posters on this board are tourists nowadays? Just from posts alone, I think it's reasonable to assume that at LEAST 75% of people posting on this board are total newfags. The number of posters doubled in the past year alone, and such estimates don't account for the continual loss of oldfags. Over periodic visits over this summer, I've noticed that obvious reddit transplants accounted for at least half of the new threads, more than I've ever seen. Of course, such trends are to be expected from the summer, but board activity has been dropping over the summer. Could this simply be accelerated rates of user loss caused by some recent influx of shitty users? If so, even with the very optimistic 25% estimate at the beginning of the year, this fraction has possibly dropped to approximately 10% due to this effect.
What the fuck do I do? Where did everyone else go? This place is one of the few I had left.

I'm still here, but you're right, the demographics changed a lot. 2020 flooded us with retards, /pol/ nogunz, and reddit refugees. Now that their panic is over they've mostly fucked off because this was never a hobby to them, just a panic. Yeah, it pushed out a lot of oldfags but some of us are still here because we have nowhere else to go. I'm also posting less because some faggot from /v/ keeps getting my IP range banned for my phone so I can't post at work.
Yo, how do we actually post videos of real shootings for discussion. Multiple times now I have had my thread prunned.

Does it need to be covered by some blow hard on Youtube to not count as current events? Is there a wait time of 2-3 weeks from the shooting?

If it's because it's inter-racial violence, what the fuck do the moderators want us to do? This is America. It fucking happens. Are we only allowed to post the video if it's white-on-white crime?

> Just post it to /pol/
Really? So that's where we're pushing discussion of actual tactics and questions of US criminal law?
It's a blue board issue. Death and violence is NSFW so it has to go on red boards the same as nudity. Generally those threads go unreported because /k/ has no native janitors but someone must be reporting your threads.

Germans, I swear. Dutchman here, took several people to the range just for fun, everybody knows it despite the idea being that it has to be for sporting purposes. Hell, I brought my gf yesterday and all I got was a couple of happy faces and plenty of offers for her to shoot a Contender and several revolvers. Germans just cannot into social interactions, I guess.

Yes. Met the cool boomer at the local IPSC chapter who helped me around with shit and paperwork to get my loicenses. Been to a couple of hunting trips with the members as well, and i've gotten a couple of good catches for guns i wouldn't otherwise get for nearly as cheap.

I will never take a woman to the range though.

What makes the ideal companion for bugging out, and is it even worth it to bring a dog? Why/why not?
79 replies and 33 images omitted. Click here to view.
Pretty much this. I have a belgian mal who likes to stay 10-15 yards ahead of me when I take her on walks in the woods and she'll alert bark if she sees something fishy (usually it's a deer or raccoon). When I take her through more dangerous areas with predators I keep her on a leash, I remember once there was a mountain cat like 20 feet ahead of us and I had to dig my feet in to hold her back because all she wanted in that moment was to fucking kill that cat. It probably would have fucked her up bad but I will always think the world of her for immediately thinking "kill giant cat to protect human" instead of trying to run away. She's the best friend I've ever had.

what are some space weapons
20 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
In vehicle to vehicle rockets would probably be the best bet. No real need for explosives so maybe just direct strike. If space battles would be anything like old school naval battles they could last days. If that’s the case then maybe some sort of laser that could start cooking the vessel from outside of rocket range.

From space to planet, heavy metal alloy kinetic energy weapons. Maybe in the not so distant future some sort of focused EMP burst
It would be very stealthy due to its extremely low radar cross section

And underrated.
I think you'll find that's Thunderbird 2 painted silver.
