How reliable do you think this would be in a post-collapse world? I currently have a love/hate relationship with a rifle, not sure if I should replace it.

I share your feelings. I have an MVP in 223 and have had a love/hate relationship with the bolt. I've found you have to tighten the firing pin springs from time to time, especially if you load hot

I was posting questions about them for weeks before finally deciding against it.

accepting AR mags just isn't enough to justify it. Get any other bolt action with a DBM (Ruger American myself) and a few extra mags for that. Yeah, they're expensive, but the MVP is just too flimsy and relies too much on one gimmick.
I don't know about you guys, but I honestly don't see the point of detachable mags on a bolt action. I would prefer stripper clips, but nobody makes modern guns that take them.

If one of the big budget bolt gun companies (Savage, remington, ruger, etc.) made a gun that took stripper clips, would you guys pick one up?
the tool marks on the front side of the bolt mildly alarm me.

are the lugs precision-ground at least?

I like the ability to swap loads quickly, but it's not a huge advantage.

I mean, it's not like anyone's walking into a firefight with a bolt gun on purpose, but if it does happen, I'd rather have a spare mag or two laoded and not need it, you know?

Also I shoot 300blk, so I like to keep a mag of super and a mag of sub in the bag, just for cool points.

But dey spin doe. Dey spiiinnnn!
No, the marking said Norinco Sporter SKS-D and it took actual AK mags. It also had a 16 inch barrel.
Too bad Sig announces accessories and shit all the fucking time and then never releases them like that conversion kit that would let you put an MCX upper on an AR lower or the numerous attempts to bring the P210 back
I said there were a shitload of minis for dirt cheap at a big site including GBs and folders. Another Anon said there were $400 police trade ins. I did not say there were $400 GBs or Folders. Use your brain
The SKS-M and SKS-D both take AK mags, but last time I checked those aren't the actual designation for either. Kinda like a "Krinkov" AK. It's just what we called em here in it stuck. One should be in a regular stock and the other should iirc have a shorter barrel but a 40 mile long thumbhole stock

>How do things get this bad in a literate society with democratic governments?
Democracy is rule of the idiot majority, which is not equipped with the mental capacity required to complete the most simple and straight-forward higher education. Literacy is of no use without capacity for somewhat demanding (cause-effect) abstract reasoning.

Hello /k/, first timer here.
I am 22 years old and I recently made some new friends, one of which has a few weapons. We spoke about it a bit and after showing interest, he invited me to one of his hunting trips or to shooting range.

My problem is I have a very bad phobia about guns, passed on to me by my mother who kept saying how dangerous they are, that one accident and you're dead and so on. I wouldn't call myself a psycho, but phobia sure is not normal. I want to get through it and enjoy the time with my friend since I -DO- like guns (I watch videos often), maybe even get one of my own at some point. I wasn't very open about it with my friend yet to avoid awkwardness.

Has anyone else had similar experience that they worked through? Any tips or hints that did the trick for you? Thank you in advance!
>pic related my only gun experience thus far

one hundred percent unreasonable.
With a knife, you have to be careful at all times to make sure nothing touches it that you don't want cut.

A gun is far simpler. You merely keep it empty and unloaded, until the moment you are aiming and ready to fire at your target. There is no risk of injury like when you use a knife and can potentially fumble/ cut yourself.
Only one thing and it's just personal preference. Hate shooting at steel targets. Just never liked it. Much rather send a round into the dirt than send it to a steel plate. (seen a video where it kicked back and almost hit the guy)
>That's a nightmare.
Yea you're right and I'm actually very good with driving, both big and small cars. I've participated in Kart races too. I've crashed few times and still feel comfy. It's in my control, and the gun should be in my control too. Maybe I'm a bit worried others might just turn and shoot me? (please don't make fun of me!)

Thank you for the comment, it helps!
>don't be a cocky douchebag
I try not to :)

Good point anon, I will never be reckless.
Thank you everyone, I have to go for now but I will lurk /k/ more to further get myself in the 'gun climate'!

Take care and cheers for your help :)

>Maybe I'm a bit worried others might just turn and shoot me?

Here's the thing: if you wanted to shoot some people, would you do it at a place where a bunch of people are gathered with their weapons loaded? Or...literally anywhere else?

Phobias are irrational. I could stay up all night playing out scenarios with you and you'd come up with more. I understand. But I think you've got the idea. A guy with a box truck could decide to smash your car, but you still go on the highways.

You'll be fine bro (or sis, I guess). You'll probably be nervous right up until you start. DESU, I was still kinda scared through my whole first time.

Also: NEVER EVER BELIEVE HOLLYWOOD. IT'S ALL LIES. Throw everything you've seen in movies straight into the garbage. They simplify reality, and it's often hilariously misinformed.

Give peace a chance.

How did bugs colonize other planets? The movie says that they hurl their spore in to space and when that shit lands a new bug colony starts on that planet. How the fuck do they do that without F.T.L. tech? How do they aim that shit? For that matter how the fuck do the plasma bugs aim their ass plasma without any sort of targeting system? The ships they were firing at would be little more than tiny specks of light in the sky. They can also communicate to each other across planets and presumably across the vast lightyears of space. How did they know that the Federation was going to invade far enough in advance that they could prepare for it?

Face it, the brain bugs are psychic. Hell the movie shows some humans to be psychic. I'm guessing that each one isn't too powerful on it's own, at least not powerful enough to be able to fend of the marines in the movie. But many brain bugs together could maybe nudge an asteroid... or open up a wormhole to help their spore travel to a new planet without waiting 100,000 years.

Now I ain't saying Buenos Aires wasn't an inside job, the movie provides little proof one way or the other. But to say that the bugs aren't at least capable of it is foolish.

Home made weapons thread.

Heres my flail i made this week. Gotta finish sanding down the handle. Im gonna make a new one with no bolts and with a longer handle though. Heres a quick rundown

>2 ft of 3/8" chain
>3 ft of 2x2" wood
>circle thing with a half inch threaded rod to go in wood
>1 chain link with the little spinning nut
>half a chain link welded to bottom of hitch ball nut
>weld nut to hitch ball so it wont spin too
>weld bolts to hitch

It was actually a bitch to weld since the hitch is chrome or some shit

Way to heavy to swing though. Unless youre a professional knight or some shit

Theyre both really goddamn versatile. However they both have slight trade offs. 357s make great CC rounds but .44s are better inna woods.

My dad owns one and I've shot his for years. It was the first semi auto hand gun I ever shot. There's no denying that it's unergonomic compared to literally any other safety. You have to rotate your hand more than other slide-mounted safeties even because of how thick the grip is. Unless your thumb has 5 joints and one is a ball and socket, in which case use one of your people's plasma pistols.

It's a bad safety. Deal with it.
Ruger revolvers should be even lower actually.

One of the shittiest triggers made today, including taurus. And they're ugly to boot. At least shitty wesson used to be good. Ruger was always shit.

>below smith and Wesson

Want to know how I know you have never owned a revolver?
Ok Eric.
>Cause my Taurus PT809 just is all around better (grip, recoil, performance, etc) and my Curve conceals perfectly.
Buying a Taurus is a crapshoot. You might get one that runs perfect and you only spent $300 on it, so you have a decent gun for a low price point. What's more likely to happen is getting a gun that needs to be sent back to Taurus twice before it actually shoots normal ammo well. The last PT809 we got at my place of employment had a strange feature where the slide locks back without an empty mag and it just sits there until you use a rubber mallet to knock the slide back into battery. The decocker is kind of cool on those though.

What is /k/'s experience with pregnant partners that also like to shoot?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.

How the fuck are you going to be able to isolate your wifey (and by extension kid) from all that bullshit? Just spending 10 minutes in traffic likely means she's exposed to all kinds of bad bullshit.

Besides, being overprotective is just as bad as not being protective enough.

I'd worry most about the hearing.
Living in a rural area would help. It's why country grown people are more manly than city slickers. They traditionally don't use aftershave and other sissy products.
Opinion of an embryonic audiologist:


He basically says shooting is safe for pregnant women as long as they: never shoot indoors, during the third trimester, or with a caliber higher than a .22 pistol or rifle.

Y'know incase there's the off chance you really are considering taking baby mama shooting
Not having a beard of zits as a result of shaving makes you a sissy. Good to know.
Baby came out with a Beretta Nano. Pretty sure it isn't mine.

because fuck things that actually work

The 240 is less prone to parts breakage and stoppages and is also capable of a higher volume of fire.

>Why is /k/ so anti-M60?

1) The fire control group can unlodge itself from the receiver and cause the gun to run away. The only way to stop it is for the operator to jank the belt hard enough to cause a misfeed.
2) Parts can be assembled backwards causing it to become a single shot firearm.
3) The receiver warps under heavy use and needs frequent rebuilds.
4) Parts need to be attached with metal wires to prevent them from literally falling off.
5) The bipod is attached to the barrel, meaning that each fucking spare barrel has its own fucking heavy bipod.
6) Barrel swapping requires fucking asbestos gloves.

The M240 might be a beast to fucking lug around, it is way superior.
I'd argue that the PKM is probably better suited for patrols on foot though.
