No, I was born the year Gettysburg was made.

A few of the other members of my units were reenactors in that movie. My Sons of Confederate Veterans camp commander actually took part in the filming of Pickett's Charge.

Here's a Gettysburg-style event we held recently though. Yankees hold the high ground and we have to push them off it.

I live in Cuckifornia and I'm looking for a "safe for liberal eyes" rifle I can take to the range and shoot without having a plainclothes guy roll up and say "show me your papers and your maglock" or some shit.
Anyway, I own AR's already and my decision is between a Mini-14 and M1A. What do you folks think? I have a fuckton of 5.56 but I don't own a semi-auto .308.
Two different guns, but both fun in their own way, but the premium on the standard M1A or Scout model is retarded for something that doesn't have a chrome-lined barrel.
Purpose of the rifle is just 100-yard shooting, adding stupid shit and just pretending I live in an anachronistic era where full-stocked, tilting bolt rifles didn't go out of style.

Also, post cucked AR's and handguns and shit. Relish in the despair of a meaningless existence of gun ownership in a cuck state.

Joke's on you, I own 4 already.

>>39196880
I'm thinking of going the M1A standard route now. Cheaper than all other options and has the cool 60's aesthetic.
Is the whole .308 vs. 7.62 mostly about primer hardness rather than recoil forces? I've heard the chambering is 7.62 only because of the harder primers, but some have said that heavier grain .308 or higher velocity .308 will damage the op-rod.
>>
>>39201738
>most 30-06 is hotter than what it was designed for
Literally replace your gas plug with an aftermarket one and then never worry about it again. Avoid the Garand Gear one.

The chamber, barrel, bolt and receiver, they can all handle modern .30-06 pressures, it's just the higher pressure will send the oprod flying way faster than intended, which batters the gun very hard.
Adjusting your gas (with a new plug), you make sure the oprod doesn't go faster than intended, and you experience no problem with battering, wear, or cycling.
>>
>>39200092
I had one and just didn't like it.
It ran fine, but accuracy was trash. Turns out again the rear sight is just garbo. With an optic it was acceptable. It just felt so cheap and the handguard got hot after any shooting. It definitely looks interesting but it's clearly meant as a backpack/bugout gun rather than a serious day-to-day use gun. There's a very niche following for them and the myth about barrels wearing out after 1k rounds is just a myth, but it is cheap with a capital C.

I wish KT made something like it but just a little tougher, even if it was heavier and more expensive.
>>39202913
M14s and M1As use a short-stroke gas piston. You aren't going to bend the op rod because it vents off excess gas pressure. It's also why they dpn't need adjustable gas plugs, they're all over-gassed to cycle weak ammo and excess pressure from hotter stuff just gets vented.

It wouldn't be too hard to make an improved version of the SU16 to make it hardier and more sturdy.

>make receiver stronger and thicker, mostly in the rear
>incorporate a springloaded recoil buffer into the rear of the receiver, for the bolt to hit against, doesn't have to be big, it can just be a small little bumper that catches the bolt (and maybe bottoms out against a little rubber/gel pad), maybe this would make a less smooth and nice looking curve at the stock, but I think it could be worked around
>add some stamped aluminum heat shields inside the plastic handguards, so it doesn't get hot so fast, just delete the bipod feature entirely, it's just not good, just make it a plain handguard piece
The sights are what they are, as you said, an optic improves it.

I think that in terms of just production/material cost, changes like these would probably not increase the price more than maybe $100, and the added weight probably wouldn't be even one whole pound.
The issue though is that plastic injection molds are very expensive pieces of equipment, and if you've already made one, well, there's gotta be a real good incentive to replace it with a new mold, even just an altered one, because you want to make sure you get your money back on that.
So potentially, the price could increase even more than that, assuming Kel-Tec would even want to improve the SU16, which they probably won't any time soon.

The design could definitely be imitated though, to try to make a similar, but better rifle, which is still cheap, and also AWB compliant. The idea of it is pretty good, it's just the execution which is so-so.

If they got one Arleigh Burke class destroyer with crew, unlimited ammo, fuel, supplies & spare parts
If they got 20 F-16 fighters with pilots, unlimited ammo, fuel, supplies & spare parts
Or if they got 100 M1 Abrams with crew, unlimited ammo, fuel, supplies & spare parts

They had a sizeable amount of Sturmgewehrs by that time. And M4 is a pretty big step forward comparatively, it's not as big of a step forward as the one from 98k to StG, and that step did not save the Germans.

You're seriously underestimating the technological advances that have occurred in the last 70 years. All of these systems are nearly impervious to anything being fielded by any army of the era. They can also engage at a pace that the allies would find impossible to keep up with.

Germany still loses, but whatever theater these weapons are deployed in are radically altered.

If you're going to have the title of the thread be "state militia" you should talk about actual state militias/defense forces, not the full-on non-government affiliated ones.

I think 36 states still have their own militias, and two have their own naval militias, but I can't be bothered to confirm that. I was involved in the Maryland State Defense Force for a while but it was pretty boring. They had a good band, though.
