Were swords worn in scabbards over the shoulder only during transit? How would you draw/sheath the blade behind your head without fucking up?

Edo period prints, artwork, and sources aren't really the best sources for period Samurai.

Considering the romanticism of Japanese history began at that point.
>or when your sword was to long to be worn practically on the waist
It's harder to draw a longsword from your back. You literally lose arm room fast.
If a sword was on a person's back and they had to draw it, they would take off both the scabbard and sword before drawing the sword
>It's harder to draw a longsword from your back. You literally lose arm room fast.
That's irrelevant, he's not talking about drawing the sword, he's talking about carrying it. A big enough sword cannot be carried at the waist.
Ever try drawing a sword longer than your arm? It's easier off the back if the scabbard isn't secured on the bottom
The only way I could see it working practically is if the side of the scabbard wasn't actually sewn shut, but had weak magnets holding it closed. They would be strong enough to prevent the sword from falling out during transit, but all the user would need to do is tug on it with correctly applied pressure, and they could reasonably pull it free in a spinning swing. Still fairly impractical, but fucking magnets, yo.

So on NPR today they were talking about the Rodney King trial and the LA riots.

This made me think, should I own an AR-15 or an FAL in case of rodney king riots in my area?

I'd absolutely operate in urban fighting with an M16A1

just dont stop your truck at any red lights, reginald
t. Can't afford an FAL

If only the dude I was gonna buy a second one didn't cancel on me, woulda been glorious
>muh mud tests
It's inevitable that a rifle is going to get dirty, the question is how easy is it to clear the rifle and clean it out? The FAL and AK have that over the AR-15 by a mile.


And this kids is why you don't ride the slide like you see on television.

Trim your nails ffs.
>sig, the official sidearm of the US military.

as yes, such a prestigious honor it is to be the cheapest effective product that can be mass produced, replace the last lowest bidder, and go on to gather dust in hundreds of thousands of arms rooms across the nation for the next 10 years
that grip looks horrific, are you the fucking michellin man?

I can't find a picture of a hand bloated and fat enough to make that grip comforable
>autism speaks

It would probably boggle your little mind that the E2 grip is slimmer than the original grips.
Just picked up a 229 legion. I dig the g10 grips but I'm wondering if the e2 or some hogue grips wouldn't be more /comfy/

Sadly he's right though. With RS2 having the same shitty netcode as RO2 ground vehicles wouldnt work very well.

I want a return to the glory days of tight netcode and loose gunplay.
RO2 is mostly shit that could have been great though. Maybe Rising Storm 2 will finally open up the maps but I don't trust Tripwire with anything anymore.

Yep. It's a gun.
It's a ruger I think, could be wrong though.
I think it comes in 9mm, will need further analysis though.
appears to have an integral rail, will look into it soon so don't quote me on that

C'mon guys, how could you forget the textbook definition of BTFO?

Operation Eagle Claw.

Because HOW DO YOU FUCK THAT UP?! Like holy shit, that was a clusterfuck from finish to start if there ever was one.

Actually pretty sure it was ROKMC that had the Claymores on their chests. There were South Korean SF present, but their presence was hidden until the operation was over.
Youre fucking shitting me. Its a surprise any of those Rhodies could walk with balls that size

Nothing worthwhile.

Never heard of that. Are those a thing?

Did it get through customs yet?

Thinking about it I've seen quite a few really flecked Tula plums but never an Izzy plum as flecked as yours.

I wish I could find a FDL for as cheap as you got yours.

Thanks for the help. Do you have any experience with the polymer MBUS sights?

Midway has them on sale for $79 per set, and it's really tempting. They look kinda obtrusive and Im a little worried about the plastic, but that pricetag is bringing out the poorfag in me
yea, I have some regular MBUS
they should work fine for you until you get an optic

Oh, so, there's no relation at all? You can't reload bullets and shoot and call yourself a hobbyist because not that you're reloading you must punch a time card? Damn, never knew, wish someone could have told me that before I started reloading.
actually trying to find out if the 1000 rounds of wolf i have should sold or if i should just say fuck it and shoot it anyway. reloading info is nice also

I'm trying to use what I have currently since ak mags are expensive in canukistan.
The bolt just scrapes right over the rounds, I think I could inlet the "magwell" on the sks just enough to give proper height without risking structural integrity.
Yea good luck with that.
Just get some wood filler bubba
