Hey, /k/, what do guns sound like? Describe with words
With earpro outside
with earpro inside
and if youre inside, the pressure reverberates off the walls and presses against your chest.
gave me a boner when i first shot at an indoor range
the first time i ever shot a gun was at an indoor range.
someone next to me was shooting a 44 mag and it felt like it was kicking a puff of air our of my lungs every time he fired.....
it was exhilarating to say the least
What you don't get from watching movies and playing vidya is the concussion sensation you feel in your chest when firing a gun, as in you phisically feel the sound wave, not only hear it.
A sharp bang, sometimes you can hear the report echo along a valley which is pretty badass.
I don't get all this "the loudest thing you've heard in your life" stuff. I grew up with a dad and grandfather who didn't really give two shits about earpro, I've shot 12 ga shotguns in cinderblock and it was manageable. Having rolled a pickup and been to a few punk shows, I can say there are louder things than a gun that you don't have to be under bombardment to subject yourself to.
Or, in case of pic related:
Sad thing is this reminds me of a friend who shoots without earpro. His justification is that the guys you would be shooting at wouldnt give you time to put your earpro in. He is also in the army if that is relevent
I have a friend who's a 17 year special forces vet. He reads lips very well, after about 4,000,000 rounds fired during his career. Yeah, I use hearing protection. Active type, custom moulded to my ear, goes past the canal bend so it's a very effective plug.
I'm legitimately red-faced and can't stop laughing. I'm going to die of laughter, and it's all thanks to you /k/.
Speaking of earpro, an old friend of mine shot on the Army rifle team at Fort Eustis in the 1950s. .30-06, .308, and .300 Winmag for some reason.
No earpro. Ever. Old guy's deaf as a post now.
A lot of guys seem to thing it's faggoty or something to protect your ears. Like hearing is for fags. Seriously? I mean sure, fags need their hearing too, especially when closeted fags are sneaking up behind them with baseball bats to act out their frustrations... but come on guys, everybody has the same fucking eardrums as everybody else. The 6'4" 250 pound marine who can bench his fucking car has the same eardrum strength as a 5 year old girl. Would you hold a cannon up next to a little girl's ear and fire it? No? Then why do it to yourself? Damn people are stupid.
The loudest pop you have ever heard in your life, followed by 10 seconds of ringing and an intense urge to cover your ears even after the sound is over.
Yes, they are that fucking loud. This is me being a dumbass when I first started shooting.
You know that moment when you get the tip of your dick in a vagina and you have the automatic response to just go 100% balls deep as you let out the most relaxing sigh known to man ... thats pretty much what shooting a gun is like.
My 12g doesn't bother me either, but I have heard artillery guns fire from a distance of about 2 feet (obviously with 2 layers of hearing protection) so maybe it's just that most people don't hear much loud shit.
The Limeys think they know, but still they are not sure.
when youre standing on one side of a wide field
and you see a deer more than halfway across
you fire, but you dont feel the recoil
or hear the shot
you see the red spray and the deer drop
and what feels like an hour later
you hear the faint echo of the shot coming back across the tree line from the other side
thats what a gun sounds like
Depends on the gun and cartridge.
Little .22s and such are all "chak, chakky, chak chak."
The nugget's more like a big ol' "dealywhop!"
Pistol-caliber carbines sound like "klor, klorklor."
AKs and SKS are generally more of a "sacklunch, sacklunch" kind of sound.
The AR platform is kind of a "thark."
Hi-Points all make a "crunk, crunk" noise.
Interestingly enough, HK pistols go "glock, glock, glock," but so do Glocks.
The FN Five Seven goes "skalp, skalp!"
Shotguns go "WHOG!"
