OH SHIT MUH TRUCK
>>
>>31124980
What's funny is, this is a rookie mistake. That's important to let sink in for a moment. This is a certified, new to shooting, mistake. I've actually done this, not to a truck luckily, but in basic to a sand bag during one of the live fire bounding overwatch courses.

You get so used to the standard BRM type stuff that when the more advanced uses of cover and shooting off obstacles came into play, I forgot about sight over bore. Ended up taking a chunk out of the sand bag in front of me, paused for a few seconds, raised the rifle a few inches and continued firing. Luckily no one saw or knew, but I have never ever ever made the mistake sense, overall it was a good, cheap, self embarrassing lesson.

Which brings me back to Sootch. This is a new guy mistake, plain and simple. Why does anyone, ever, think he has any training or lessons to offer to the firearms community. He's obviously new to shooting as a skill. I don't mean he hasn't grown up with guns or anything, but, as any kind of a real skill he's new.

Bonus points will be alloted to those who guess all correctly and who guess the manufacturer.

Your budget is not the issue IMO. I have no idea how you came to the choices you've provided. Crye is good but holy shit a fucking $150 plate carrier with fucked up stitching and not even cordura material is a big waste of money. Buy the Crye JPC or a Mayflower APC.

I'm a US citizen, but spent a long time in a foreign country, where we had decent public transportation. It is certainly unheard of for teenagers and college students to drive unless their parents are really rich. I came back to the US for collage and have neither the time nor need to drive, except for maybe one or two occasions a year.

Also, noguns. Handled and shot before, but don't actually own one of my own.

Is it just that the 34 has a part of the frame cut out making it lighter with less recoil?

Dual wielding was never actually a thing. Samurai would carry two swords for the same reason you want a rifle and a pistol -- one is for outdoors where you can move a lot more freely, one is for smaller spaces where you don't want your weapon getting caught on doorjams and light fixtures.

And ninjas were basically just spies and assassins, not magic duelists.

>Is buying toy guns at all bad parenting in a gun owning household?
The real question is why are you keeping your guns somewhere your children can pick them up and either mistake them for a toy or treat them as a toy. If you have dumbass children in the house, you should be treating your guns the same way you treat the cleaning products and knives and keep them somewhere out of reach of children.
>>
>>31118909
The information wants to be free, man.

Also, telling dumbass fudds how to blow themselves up means they might actually do it and then kill themselves.

File: muzzle energy.jpg (38 KB, 1092x693)

When you buy a box of ammo, you will often see the velocity and kinetic energy of the bullet listed on the back, sometimes for several different ranges. Velocity matters, if for no other reason, because a bullet with insufficient impact velocity will party or totally fail to expand, but is kinetic energy really meaningful? A baseball has about the same energy as a 32 ACP. 32 ACP is not known for being very powerful, but it is certainly deadlier than a baseball. It is all well and good to compare figures on paper, but what really matters is how a bullet performs on a real animal of flesh and blood.

>>31124577
Energy is a meaningless factor in killing things with bullets. Along with SD, bullet diameter, and bullet mass.

What matters is shot placement, bullet integrity, and velocity at impact. Everything else is fluff.

Does this imply that smaller boolit of same speed pokes holes in things better?

Guess that's why SLAP rounds are a thing.

Maybe muzzle PSI would be a better stat than muzzle velocity?
