What's wrong?
You're not a shitlib or a minority are you, anon?

Whether you think an event like this will occur, or is even possible is irrelevant. This is just a pure discussion of the 22lr's viability in different scenarios.

Long story short, finally got a long time friend into shooting and he purchased a Mossberg 702 and a Taurus TX22. Thought they would make great beginner guns, but now he claims he has everything he needs. I disagree, but it got me thinking about how he would do if something that he fears came true.

He has taken my advice on many other things
>he purchased a bunch of mags
>he has a bunch of "hotter" 22 ammo and shoots it
>he goes shooting with me once a week
>he does dry fire practice at home to improve his shooting (at least he says he does, and his shooting has improved)

Does someone with a 22lr rifle and pistol (and is proficient with both) really have everything they need to survive?

>be anons great-great grandfather
>get laid off during the great depression
>have to feed 5 kids on basically no money
>has a single shot 22lr rifle and plenty of rounds
>go into the nearby woods every second day or so and walk out with a few wood pigeons
>this put meat on the table for his family until times became good again

This is probably the most realistic SHTF use for a 22lr, or any rifle in general. And is also why I own an accurate takedown Winchester M1906.

That's a pretty nice setup anon, did you make it yourself? I kind of want to make something similar for my CZ 457.
I definitely agree that in a scenario where everything goes south and you've got woodlands nearby, hunting with a .22 is a completely viable option.

You should follow your own advice. 22lr is not the deadliest but it is deadly. It can and has been used in self defence thousands of times. You're not going to win wars with it, but it will kill if needed.

Have you ever regretted purchasing a firearm?

FN made Browning SA-22
Smith & Wesson Model 18
And CZ75B kind of.

I live in Hellgium and bought the SA-22 and the S&W from an old guy with dementia. Both were pretty cheap but had to look more into them before I bought, I just wanted a decent cheap .22 semi auto and revolver. The guy (or a previous owner) had done a lot of crappy filing on the front sight area of the barrel, the front sight was an airgun sight glued in place with TEC-7 silicone glue. Rear sight is also not an original and has been filed for some reason. Got rid of the sights but the slots they're in were filed out so no other sights will fit in them. Also after about 30-40 shots the barrel comes loose and I have to tighten it which is really annoying and removes the possibility of using a scope on it since the scope is mounted on the receiver. If I just had waited a year longer, 2 Belgian made SA-22 were sold at my range for €50 each in nearly mint condition, one even including an ancient red dot.

The Model 18 is just a 4" revolver and I can't really get tight groups with it at 25m for some reason, while I have no trouble with 6" barrels. Just a skill issue I guess but I don't use the revolver anymore because of it.

The CZ75B I got for €200, it was a police trade in that was in very good condition but I can't shoot well with it even though I've trained with it a lot and ammo is just getting more expensive by the day. Planning to sell it to some zoomer who thinks it's cool because of video games. I also use a CZ 75 Tactical Sports, which I do get very good results with.

Assuming that Russia didn't want to risk Moscow getting nuked and it was a conventional conflict besides DPRK chemical warfare.

So how would Russia defend itself against a DPRK onslaught against Vladivostok?

>Vladivostok.
It's within range of gun artillery fired from within the DPRKs borders, their MLRS can obliterate it with ease .

The HQ of the Russian Pacific Fleet is between Vladivostok and the DPRK border, 20km. It is the primary storage site for their Pacific nuclear weapons.

>>61662863
They have one of the worlds largest combat engineering corps, i think they could manage a few dozen miles AI friend.
>>
>>61662875
Obliterate? Yes probably. The United States could obliterate Tehran but that's not realistic or I think the intended question. Capture I think would be the challenge for a fairly inexperienced military but honestly who knows with them, im arguing theyed probably make significant gains in the East but outside of their pretty decent central planning system I doubt they have any real chance of maintaining those gains. They could certainly bypass Vladivostok if they can managae to bypass the atrocious infrastructure of Eastern Russia just outside of Rason. Its swampy marsh and unpaved road for a long 100km which the *2nd most powerful nation* couldn't manage outside of their doorstep

>>61662875
Russia will just redirect the mobik-wave from Ukraine to North Korea which, unlike Ukraine, won't have anyone to back it up, while the norks may push into Vladivostok urban area they will eventually get bogged down Stalingrad style and then have all their forces grinded down, russians will rather sacrifice their earnings in Ukraine rather than lose their actual internationally recognized territory, what is more, Monke will have all the legal and ideological justification to call mass mobilization and empty the arsenal short of nukes against the norks.
Don't get me wrong, the norks will hold the initiative and make Russia suffer horrible casualties, but they just all by themselves are not enough to win against Russia however how weakened it has become.

In the face of a massive assault where they would need six months to just handle the refugees? With no troops, armor or weapons?

This isn't Russia invading Ukraine, if you get caught by the DPRK you are either dead or you wish you were. Civilians will live only long enough to clog up Russian roads and rail lines. They have the largest sustainable (only) large scale chemical warfare ability on earth so they can use it near impunity. They are horror incarnate. Russian roads/rails will be backed up for months with refugees before Russia can respond with any real ground forces and by then it will not matter.

Vladivostok's ruins will be taken by the DPRK as well as lower Primorsky and the Kim Family will laugh in joy after walking over a million (more) corpses.

if norks go for vladivostok it will be with the blessing and support of chinks. They are like that as they reason they can deal with the norks later when they want manchuria for themselves. So yes, with chang logistical support it should be doable for norks in theory as changs can give them all the fuel, trucks, food and ammo they need for the operation. Things norks lack themselves as they are from the stalinist school of thought where all that matters is the numbers of weapons and stockpiles of ammo (no matter the quality). Serfs can feed off the land.

of course in reality all of them are both greedy and super paranoid about each other while proudly stubborn. So norks will do their own thing and changs cant force them to do much of anything while even if norks would be willing to embark on the conquest with chang backing the latter would nickle and dime them to hell and back for every single meager bullet while selling them rotten MREs. It aint Maos era anymore who was a communist tyrant emperor as well as true believer in the marxism cult.

Xi is just a regular self centered emperor wanting to return to the age of conquering empires. He is very similar to monke personality wise

Like most PSA products you can't expect top-shelf quality but it is good value. If you are just trying to dip your toe in I think it's a good option.
If you buy one just give it a good shakedown to ensure that you didn't get a lemon. If malfunctions persist beyond a few hundred rounds or a part breaks, send it back for warranty. Repeat as necessary until you get a gun you can trust, and if PSA can't deliver it get your money back and put it towards an actual Glock.
>>61655935
Yep.
In fact PSA is selling one with both included too.

I hesitate to say that it's worth it, having owned one. Accuracy is not stellar and what there is of it is challenging to achieve, since it is an awkward gun to use with an exceptionally awful trigger. All of these things can get tweaked out with practice and some aftermarket enhancements but it's a bunch of time and money to dump on an already expensive rifle.

You shouldn't be chasing for spec values but they do exist and if you wanted to know what "better spec" values are there's a way to know which unit is desirable over another.
Most retailers won't post this info as they build NVDs to order, first come first serve, and depending on their grading scale of high, mid, low tier it may differ from retailers. If a retailer offer a “ready to ship” fully built units they will list the spec values. Hand select is an option from retailers that will try to match to your spec requirements.

even if built in the middle of bumfuck nowhere that will cost a million dollars per townhouse-sized segment, easily
if you can find maybe 16 nuclear families you can form a tic-tac-toe grid of eight towers, maybe connected with a sturdy wall (with firing step), maybe surrounded by barns and two hundred acres of farmland
the "keep" will cost you 10 million dollars easily, maybe a couple million more for foundations
the farmland should cost 1 to 2 million dollars, depending

this post is more convincing, given that each segment would be approximately 3000-4000 square feet a million would be a fair estimate for each

>a better question to ask is how does one fortify a townhouse in the city so that it's riot-resistant, like a Scottish towerhouse

Thorny hedges. Cacti of descending height below windows. Impact resistant windows on lower floors (at least facing street/probably approach angles). Ivies/creeping plants on the walls attached to a firm non-flammable lattice such that incidiaries will not make direct contact. Gravel along outer walls that is audible when stepped on. Various unpleasant to jump into brambles along the outer fence. Blindingly bright spot lights facing outwards. Several large dogs, and one of any size that has exceptional sense of smell. Staffordshire terriers have an uncanny ability to gauge character & intent, for instance. Trees such that obstruct thrown projectiles from street, i.e. such that are not so thick one cannot see through them still, and only allow a narrow opening to the door if they did throw something. A metallic door, or a non-flammable sacrificial covering mounted at an offset from it.
