Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

So I got to handle pic related this past weekend at a gun show. It seemed pretty good (fit and finish wise)- is it worth the money? I know everyone shills for the 17s... But leaving that out of the equation- is it worth it? Does anyone here have experience with the 16? How does it stack up against other piston ARs?

>tl;dr is the scar 16s worth it? Or is it bested by other modern piston 556 rifles?

Well, /k/, it's already begun.

What are your thoughts on all this?

I'm gonna be honest, when it comes to "What counts as people" I'm a liberal-fag and willing to count an AI as a person.

But the big concern is that a lot of our recent enemies tend to be people who don't give two shits about these rules and could end up with an endless army to slaughter our people with, and it's going to necessitate fighting fire with fire.

Was Schleiffen a tactical genius and Germany just had shit execution or was his whole plan just as unrealistic and bullshit as Joffre's?

Could Germany have invaded (and possibly won) without betraying Belgian neutrality thereby causing Britain to join the war?

We werden afgesneden omdat Belgiƫ verklaarde neutraliteit en de geallieerden kon ons niet te bereiken in de tijd . Neergeschoten de helft van de Duitse luchtmacht ingezet om Nederland . De Marine en Luchtmacht vochten tot het bittere Einde . Niet verwonderlijk dat verraderlijke Belgiƫ gestoken ons in de achterst. Het was een oorlog op twee fronten .

Not having a goal besides "kill the enemy" and then not informing your commanders of said goal is never a good plan. And beside, this thread by its nature is of hindsight, which shows Verdun was nothing but a colossal waste of German manpower.

>>26686583
Successful but they still had enough failings to allow the French to recuperate. On the first day many German units hardly left their Stollen, for instance.

>>26686894
While the British front certainly didn't need abandoning, it also wasn't nearly as active as the others while they were building up for the Somme.
>>
>>26687037
true but if they had withdrawn then the somme offensive would probably have broken through.

thats the point really once they were committed to a two front war they couldnt pull enough troops of either front to be decisive
>>
>>26687037
the goal is the most basic goal of all warfare. If the enemy is dead you win by default.

the germans held the higher ground, there were sitting on three sides of verdun.
The french had only one road to supply the troops, well in reach of german arty.
Verdun was the anchor for the magniot line, a position the french coudnt retreat from. They had to throw everyone into the meatgrinder.
The plan was good and had good chances of success.

claiming hindsight to call it a bad plan is too easy.

Do you think mandatory military training is a good or bad idea and why?

>to defend myself and my family
>"why don't you just call the police"

I think you were perfectly within your rights to do that.

Somebody drew a weapon after you denied them a cigarette, you have every reason to believe that they intended to use that weapon against you, and as far as I'm concerned (as a LEO) you were perfectly logical to draw your weapon and discharge.

I can tell you that you have the upper hand in the situation based on two things
>you didn't chase after them and attempt to finish the job
>if you are telling the truth it was you against two others, which warrants you drawing your weapon even further.

That being said, you need to report this to the police immediately, the longer you wait the higher the chances are of you getting in some deep shit.

Cool, now how do we come up with an equal cost so the faggots doing buddy drills and tacticoooool training feel the same about getting "killed". How do the people at some faggots training course feel death when they are shooting at shit from under a car or around some corner on a mock urban environment.

All of your arguments are bullshit. No one is claiming that fags who hang out on airsoft farms are in training, but to say that using airsoft can't be a great way to train with other's is pants on fucking head retarded, just like you, retard.

I mean, it's like saying every military in the world doesn't properly train because they use simulated live fire exercises you fucking mook. Holy shit you're a silly willy.

I wouldn't.

Putting together yet own cleaning kit is more useful and cost effective and step #1 is getting _one-piece_ cleaning rods.

Otis all caliber kit. Dewey rod that can the otis tips. And a couple brass pistol rods. And a bore snake for each caliber.

Just maintaining the bore in storage pull the bore snakes. Couple rounds use the otis with the cable. Dirty, dirty, dirty break out the dewey.

Otis is nice because compact. Dewey is high end . Bore snake doesnt get enough credit. Not every cleaning job is the same.

If you are a poor fag start with the otis. and add as you go.

So the meet back on the 18th only attracted one other anon (that I could see), but I'll count that as more my fault than anything seeing as I didn't promote the changed locale that well.

So I want to get another one started.

Location: Livermore Pleasanton Rod & Gun Club

Date: Saturday, August 8th.

Address: 4000 Dagnino Rd, Livermore CA

Website: http://lprg.org/

Time: 9:30 AM, about 30 minutes before the rifle range opens up.

The price to shoot at the rifle range is $15, it's shady, and the range goes up to 100 yards.
