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.

>M79 fielded, pretty successful
>people figure out how to put grenade launchers on rifles
>standalone launchers become almost non-existent
Why is this? Repeating launchers would be very powerful on the battlefield, and don't weigh down somebody who's already lugging a rifle and ammo. Pic is 10 lbs loaded with a four round capacity, a more modern design could be chambered in 40x53 or similar for extra boom, and use a faster loading mag.

moving the goalposts. sure, grenades can ruin somebodies day, but think about this. the average rifleman carries 210/240 rounds, with maybe one or two guys carrying another couple hundred, plus spare belts for the machine gun. if there are firefights that were reported in iraq, and especially vietnam, where the US soldiers ran out of ammo within the first ten minutes for almost everything, why on earth would you use something that three grenades are a little heavier than one 30 rd Stanag, meaning a reasonable combat load is only 24 grenades? double the ammo count? well, now you have 48 grenades, instead of 540 5.56 rounds, or 240 5.56 and another 200 rounds of 7.62x51, which a single 40x46 weighs about the same as nine M80 Ball rounds. no one is saying grenades don't have some serious power, its that they have zero staying power for anything longer than immediate spray and pray to break out or survive an ambush, which those extra MG/rifle rounds would do better, especially when you trade about 12-14 rounds of 5.56mm/9 7.62x51 for a single grenade

>>37979091
>Why is this?
We don't often need a lot of grenades all at once so the RoF for handloading is fine. It also saves a lot of weight not carrying an extra stock, recoil system, magazine etc.
And if we absolutely do need it, we have things like the MGL.

What if it were a requirement of permit/ first gun purchase only?

a single 4-5 hour class / instructor session to teach you basic safety, shooting, handling and theory.

It would have literally no downside to current gun-owners, just mandatory for first timers.

And it isn't like it would magically stop you from teaching your kids at home, or doing whatever you want for that matter.

Just to stop retards from handling firearms disrespectfully or maybe save some new-gun owners life.

My old man owns a Remington Model 12C that he loves to plink with. I want to buy him some subsonic .22 so he doesn't ruin what's left of his hearing when he's genociding squirrels and armadillos in the backyard.

how much clothing is needed for proper concealment with a shoulder rig? it seems to me like you'd need to be wearing a heavy coat to properly keep it hidden. In summer I typically wear button-down shirts with an undershirt, and I'm getting my CHL this month, and I'm kind of at a loss as to which method of carry is best in hot weather.

When will you fucking retards realize that (((gun deaths))) aren't the problem? The UK and Australia's gun death rates went down substantially after their bans, relative to the basically nonexistent rates they had to begin with, but that drop was essentially made up completely by stabbings, bombings, acid attacks and trucks of peace. Violent crime is the problem, not gun crime like CNN so desperately wants you to believe, and banning guns will do absolutely nothing to drop rates of violent crime and will thus accomplish nothing but pissing freedom loving citizens off.

So I was just reading this incredibly interesting article:

https://thebulletin.org/how-us-nuclear-force-modernization-undermining-strategic-stability-burst-height-compensating-super10578

And its changed my understanding of MAD a bit. I used to think Russia was overly paranoid about US ballistic missile defense, since there is no way the US could shoot down hundreds of ICBMs.

What this article says though is that the accuracy of upgraded US ICBMs and warheads is a gamechanger. And it also, much to my surprise, says that Russia doesn't have a space based infra red warning system- they can only see missiles when they are picked up on radar, leaving them very little time to respond. So what the article is basically saying is that the US could effectively pull off a successful first nuclear strike. The accuracy would allow the US to decimate even hardened launchers on land. The limited BMD facilities the US has in Alaska/California and building in Europe would get the few that survived and sub launched missiles, hence why Putin is so paranoid about those.

Pretty interesting article, what do you guys think? I was also pretty alarmed by the lack of Russian space based sensors... I was not aware of that. The US instantly knows when someone so much as tests a rocket motor on the other side of the world.

my thoughts precisly. Surely this is not a cultural push back that is organic. Surely pissing people off on the reg, and continuing to do it while pushing south Carolina style legislation would not result in the people being more pissed off and seeing it as an even more obvious validation of their feelings. Surely no damage control and self evaluation is in order.

Its fucked up. Charlie Chaplain said it. There is enough room on this earth for us all. Yet some fuckers dont just want their room, they want everyone elses room, and control over their thoughts. Because ya know. thats not fucked.

Not sure what you mean.

The Mark 23 has a decocker lever and a safety lever, a standard V1 USP Tactical has one lever that does both. The Mark 23 has a fatter grip. Other than that they function the same.

Wait for this soi over here, he has both >>37992515

Trigger, balancing/handling, accuracy, those sorts of things.

>>37992669
I'm surprised it has more muzzle flip considering the longer, heavier slide.
If you could only have one for some arbitrary reason, which of the two would you pick? Not necessarily for utility, either.
>>
>>37992570
an ammo manufacturer i believe it was remington or winchester claimed for use in testing batches of ammunition they had ran over 279k rounds through the same usp45 with no major parts malfunctions.

the usp45 will do whatever the mk23 will do but be lighter and more practical. they stopped using the mk23 a long time ago because we can do the same if not better with lighter pistols, the mk23 is fuck huge, id only recommend it for larpers and maybe hunting ive seen some decent kills with one people seem to enjoy using it to hunt deer.

This bothers me a bit. If you're for restricting them from having military grade weapons, you should be restricting them from enlisting from using them at all. It's fucking ridiculous to give people minimum training with a weapon they can't acquire and practice with on their own then throw them into some potential shit with it. Then what they can come back home and still not have one? What the fuck is that.
