I'm thinking about burying my ar as a backup if my other weapons get stolen.
Can I get some info on long term weapons storage under ground?

Probably more satisfying, in the sense that when it is over, it is definitely over. No worrying about snipers, landmines, ambushes, etc. If you won, then you won, period. If you lost, then well, you're probably already dead anyway.

yeah, bladed weapons have a larger impact on the psyche. That's why muggings with blades have better success than muggings done with a gun. Further, nobody actually gets shot in afganistan-type places today.

To some extent, because you were close and you weren't necessarily aware of your side winning. It's probably 10x the intensity of a fps game since everyone is pretty close together.
The terrifying thing about modern war is that a single man can destroy a city with a bomb.

Depends on your position in combat.

Today if you are in the front lines of any war, you have a good chance of living, fighting sand people, Vietnamese or Westerner powers it doesn't matter. Where in the Good ol' times if you were in the front line of a serious engagement you were going to die 99.9% of the time and the supporting troops were the ones who would see the battle though when one side starts to deplete.

Also today the odds of being involved in seeing true carnage is low, it exists but not guaranteed as bullets and bombs are a rather clean way of killing people in general as opposed to a war hammer or pike from a spitting distance.

Bayesian inference, if I'm thinking of the right word.

China put out shit for so long that when they finally started pushing decent electronics, people had a hard time believe the 507 was worth a shit. And it was the same thing in reverse for Luepold, because their reputation had people denying that Deltapoint Pros were dropping like flies after a few thousand pistol slide cycles.

If someone finds it please post and I will save it later upload to archive.org in case it's deleted by youtube.
Then anons can download from archive.org easily and never lose it again.

Can we get a fudd guns thread going? Not a thread for bashing more modern or combat oriented designs but just a thread to admire and appreciate the craftsmanship and aesthetics that went into guns many of us may have grown up with or that were used by our fathers/grandfathers? I’m talking about guns such as the Marlin 336, Winchester 1894, Winchester Model 70, Remington Model 8, Savage 99, Colt Woodsman, etc.

Another thing you could do is remove a bit more, then shape a repair block to fit the original contours, sand down to perfection and refinish. This is a factory repair on my sks, sorry it's not a fuddgun but it's the only example I have.

I’ve a 30AS with fucked up sights I’m trying to replace. Williams fire sights on the rear of the receiver. I knocked out the dovetail rear sight in the barrel and replaced with that. Problem is the 30AS has a different front sight than the standard 336 so I’ve got to get a replacement that’ll be high enough.

I went with a skinner front sight on mine, I'm pretty happy with it, easy to get a clear precise sight picture. I managed a 2" group on an SR1 target @100yd prone/slung last time I took it to the range, can't ask for much better then that out of a non-match rifle.

A thread for all things M1, there has never been a better time to get into Garands.

CMP has received back over 100,000 M1's from abroad in recent years from Turkey, and the philippines, parts are more then abundant, and each rifle is backed with the service and support of the CMP, and starting at $650 they are a real value with rising costs of milsurps, CMP states at current demand they have enough supply to last into the 2030's, all this while CMP is working on getting the 600,000 M1 rifles in South Korea returned.

>but the process of buying is to complicated!

It's not, If you have a CCW you just need to buy a garand collectors club membership and you fulfill all the requirements, the hardest part will be containing your autism for 5 minutes to get your order forum notarized.

SERE isn't the same. A SEREGRAD is just a selective reuptake graduate, it means you're a flight instructor that's still a nugget because you did well enough in training to sit out a training cycle so you can upgrade from choppers to jets if a spot gets opened up instead of just getting shuffled off to something you didn't want.

They liked making SEREGRADs fly with shittier arab students that the instructors have developed a hatred for. They're awful

Congratulations anon!
Your country has just been chosen as the arena for America(or russia if you're eastern european)'s next endless war. Your government and their armed forces were effectivly wiped out in a month but you decide to join up with a few locals you know and a couple of survivors from what's left of the army.

You're tasked with overseeing the production of armored vehicles. Your funding is very limited but you have access to anything you want from the civilian population like bulldozers and such. How and what kind of vehicles do you build, how do you employ and utilize them and how do you armor them? I'll start
>radio controlled golfcarts modded to be heavily armored with concrete and metal and filled to the brim with ANFO. With livefeeding cameras you just roll up to the checkpoints. If they succeed; mission complete. If not the soldiers will have to spend time on them and you can move your infantry up and flank them.

So you are draping a wobbly frame with what is essentially picrel and expecting it to either divert energy far enough away from the important bits for it to be useful, or completely deflect certain ammunition. There comes a point where slopes and bulkiness in design become a sticking point. All those wobbly frames will have to be stored in some way, to be attached to whatever vehicle at a later time after transport to their duty location, and someone will have to put together those wobbly frames in the field with hand tools. Fuck all the fancy talk like >>43412315,
>High tech gambeson/chain-mail
because you might as well be surrounding a bike with chicken wire attached to pvc pipes. You may very well be using hyper-advanced materials, but I want you to imagine the setup you are describing actually moving across a battlefield. Your bicycle in a giant tent idea, with wobbly extended frames sticking out 5 or 10 feet, is going to get snagged on every obstacle known to man before it ever gets hit with a .50 cal or 40mm grenade.

Patton only had to talk about tanks to the yanks for 10 years, during which time he had his wife drive a tank in test trials to show how easy it was to train someone to do. While that rubbed people the wrong way in some respects, his vision of cavalry warfare was given enough credence during the inter-war period that America had a decent tank going into WWII.
