You still keep playing roundabout with me. You can upgrade ammunition without it being Mk258 you know.

Handwaving? You're purposefully disregarding facts you know will destroy your argument. If you're really going to try and tell me in 20 years avionics, targeting, etc. haven't changed, this conversation is done.

The irony, huh? It's pretty ironic you say it's ironic that someone supposedly isn't putting forth information.

Because the difference is barely noticeable if you're not cripplingly autistic, and there's nothing inherently wrong with streaming. As long as you're internet isn't from fucking Somalia, it's just fine. Sure it's not perfect, but let's be real here, you're watching Cambodian flip books, not Citizen Kane.

If you got viruses from it, or the FBI had an easier time nailing you through it, or it had an otherwise crippling negative effect on your computer, you might have a point.

As it stands, you're just being an elitist snob, shitting on something for no good reason.

so I have a savage model 99 in .303 savage, that was my great-grandfather's. I killed my first deer with it, and walked around the woods a lot with it. I also have 8 bullets for it, which is not enough. I want to buy more, and I can pay for the remanufactured stuff I found online, but I am concerned about my gun, and I don't want to have an m1-type malfunction due to new ammo. What ammo is good for .303 savage and where can I buy it?

also post old rifle advertisements

that was the new (at the time) Chinese Communist Party leadership reasserting its control over the Army. They rigged the ex so that the army would fail hard, which was then used as a pretext for a round of demotions and promotions to re-align their priorities.
You shouldn't look too hard into the military side of the exercise is what I'm saying. That SBCT could have been wiped out with a couple-three tac nukes on day one of the exercise...

this man is a retard

The level II concealed vests they wear are useless.

People bitch about them wearing lvl IIIA vests with plates.

So why not just make the police wear the IIIa vest with plates and put it in a hi viz reflective shell?

The police outside SWAT aren't supposed to be worrying about not being seen anyways. The hi viz shell should disarm the public over cops in body armor. Especially if we put a white button up shirt with a tie under it and light blue slacks.

I already told you, and you deliberately ignored it.

Cops can have everything they want as soon as they are accountable for their actions. But that's why you ignore it. Accountability is what you desperately don't want. An unfeeling, well-armed, aggressive force unbeholden to the will of the people is detrimental to the public good.

Are you really afraid of a little accountability? Most every other employee has to contend with possible punishments for doing their job inappropriately or overstepping their authority. But cops? Do you really want the people with the greatest ability to routinely destroy lives and livelihoods to be the ones entirely divorced from accountability?

Well, I imagine you would, if you were a cop. Like I said, keep all the guns you'd like, when you're treated the same as the rest of us by the legal system.

>>25899045
Except a government is supposed to represent the will of the people so your little hypothetical makes no sense. That is, unless you believe the two should be entirely separate.

So today on my bus ride home from work, someone up the back with me brought up something about how gun control was a good thing and needs to be implemented more around the country (More than it already is in this shit-state) . He had one person agreeing with him then they started the whole:
>"Autistic kids can get $3000, go to a store, buy a gun and shoot a heap of people in america"
>"people get shot all the time in America"
>"Guns in America is bad"
>"Gun culture is bad
>"Americas laws were awesome at the time they were made, but that was back when they had musket rifles"

>allhopewaslost.webm

So the reason I'm bringing up this badly recalled story is because I was wondering what arguments /k/ brings up when people say guns are bad or think gun control needs to be more heavily implemented. These people get on my fucking nerves because they won't listen to an opposing opinion. If they're explaining why guns are bad, I'll listen and consider (I never agree, but I consider), If I try to argue they cut in, yelling and calling me stupid. How do I (Or any others dealing with fudds or fuck-ass liberals) put these fuckers in their place?

Please, /k/

You're my only hope.

>"Autistic Kids"
Adam Lanza didn't buy the Bushmaster, his mom did. IIRC Adam wouldn't have passed a background check on his own, therefore; the law isn't the problem, criminals (mom making a straw purchase) are the problem.

>"Get shot all the time"
Violence is over-hyped in the news despite violet crime plummeting since the 90's. In any event, it is indeed true people get shot more in the US than the UK, for example, but the US isn't anywhere close to the 'most violent' country despite being #1 in per capita gun ownership of nearly 1:1. UK is more violent, and many nations in latin america have super high murder rates even with strict gun laws.

>"Guns is bad"
Can't do shit about feels.

>"Appeal to Muskets"
You could make a similar argument about tanks, planes, etc. It is not possible to secure the free state if we throw away all our technology, go back to muskets, and play war like a game of football.

If you were that right it would be 200 meters for peephole sights, 100 meters for tangent and apertures.

The rise starts the moment the primer is punctured no guns.
>>
With military rifles that don't have easy to adjust sights (ladder gradient), they were designed with a zero that lets you hit a person from 100 to 300 yards+ with the same sight picture when holding on a man's belly.

Makes sense for war.

Doesn't make for a good target rifle.

smith sights offer adjustable sights, though a bit pricy for a run of the mill nugget.

I bought taller sights and a rear peep for my M39 off a guy on gunboards, but that's for an M39 and the set was half the price of the smith front sights alone.

I heard that people have used solder to build up a bead on the front post.

Current Events:
>ISIS is conducting a purge in Ramadi, Shia militias are preparing for an attempt to re-take the city, western media outlets and analysts enter day 4 of meltdown over IA's uselessness
>Palmyra has fallen to ISIS, SAA aircraft have been bombing since, ruins will probably be kill in the imminent future
>UN announces Yemen peace talks in Geneva, Iran offers to allow ship inspections, fighting continues on as expected
>Libya Dawn / ISIS are currently fighting in Sirte

Questions of the Thread:
>will the US drop pretenses of not assisting Shia militias now that the IA has left the road to Baghdad open?
>how will Assad get around the loss of energy sources in Palmyra and how many hours will it be before the ruins are kill?
>how long will the UN talks last before they conclude/collapse and is there any non-zero hope for a meaningful resolution to them?

The fact the ghouta pocket is still around after 3 years is a minor miracle. I have kept up with the entire Syrian war and I used to watch Ghouta closely.

Do you think ISIL will make a push into KSA this summer or next summer?

It seems to be their logical next step (If ISIL is to survive, it needs to keep gaining territory). And their propagandists seem to be working overdrive in sowing the seeds of an support base to welcome them when they push south.
>Given KSA's incompetence, it seems plausible the Daesh would be able to take them on
