I've got my own pet fuddlore I'm spreading, since everyone else gets to spread theirs. I'm saying the guy in the picture shot too much .45 every time someone asks why his elbow is like that. "Gotta limit how much .45 you shoot or you'll get the ol .45 elbow."
And autism isn't real. This world is fucking ridiculous and it drives some people mad. Like, why is "chaos" not spelled "kayoss"? Chaos should be pronounced "ch-ah-os". WE HAVE A PHONETIC ALPHABET AND AS SOON AS THEY TEACH YOU HOW THAT WORKS THEY TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU WERE TAUGHT WAS A LIE then they break down your mind.
School is a fucking indoctrination camp that forces mental cages and limits imaginations.
Fuck this place.
Something is wrong with this planet.
>School is a fucking indoctrination camp that forces mental cages and limits imaginations.
So this...is autism.
He isn't me.
And yes, I'm right.
Our alphabet is meant to be phonetic, but it's not. "Silent letters"? COME THE FUCK ON. Kids catch on quick that it's pile of bullshit so they stop paying attention and caring about school, then their brains get neutered by medication forced on them by the system.
Anyways, I'M FUCKING RIGHT. The government is broken. The healthcare system is broken. The alphabet and language is broken. Math is broken to. "Imaginary numbers"? FUCK THIS PLACE.
Broken systems make broken people.

Oh god, let's see. I work in a gun store so I get stupid remarks daily. From the last week ONLY:
>"A .38 special can be shot out of an a .38 super. And because it is a .38, you can also shoot a .357 magnum out of it too"
>"Shotguns? Those are what can be used to shoot down aircraft, right?
>"I would like a rifle that I can deer hunt with, but that will not hurt a person if I accidentally shoot them. (He kept repeating the line, "If I accidentally shoot someone"...ya, I refused to sell him anything
>Pretty common but, "You don't have to aim a shotgun at all baby. You just fire from the hip and it will spread out and kill anything in the hallway" (Context - an "urban" couple shopping for a home defense gun)
>"When the refugee's start to riot and the second civil war begins, I plan on linking up with military forces and providing sniper fire for our heroes on the front line with my High-point carbine...can you bore sight it for me?
>"I want to buy a machine gun. The news told me I can buy one at any gun store. What do you mean they are very hard and expensive to get? Okay then...how do I go about buying one illegally?"
I have grown to understand why so many people who work in fun stores are assholes. I make a daily effort to not become a gun counter douche, but god damn, dealing with morons day in and day out (some of whom flag you with loaded weapons or threaten you when you refuse to sell them a gun) can make you very surly very quickly
I can understand a person who isnt inti firearms not knowing about the .357/.38 thing. As someone who works at a gun store it is kind of your job to educate people on shit like that. All the rest is just people being dumb fucks though.
>".22 ricochets and bounces around when it enters the body, so getting hit once by a .22 is like getting hit 2 or 3 times with another bullet."
-A "former marine" I was training in my department that complained of bad knees from too many parachute jumps.
He was like that kid that lied about his dad working for nintendo. Every day it was a new grandiose story.
quickly three reasons :
Urbanisation : it is very hard for you to own something large enough to make a safe range out of it, gun ranges are sport associations, so poorly funded, when urbanisation come closer to a shooting range, soccer moms goes full " I bought this house for peanuts but there is a shooting range here, le't make it close so my real estate will grow in price" and as oyu may know real estate is more important than white supremacist child killer hobby....
>kebabs : almost any gun legislation passed since the 80" was to deter kebabs to legally buys guns, (outlawing pump shotties) and to deter honest ctizen to buy guns to defend from said kebabs : Results kebabs have fa AKs when you have to carefully spend six month in a trap/skeet/hunter club to buy a SxS/boltgun/lever etc.
>soccer moms : guns are bad, america is sick because of guns, hunting is inhumane (then they bitches when their kids gets mangled by 230lbs boars that reproduces quicker than rabbits)
>ubisoft : because any cumstain is playing vidya right naow and most of them are filthy casuals that thinks having a gun is the ultimate way of becoming a badass
and of course, kebabs are playing too, but then they will drop a few tabs of captagon, then going on a full killing spree for the will of pedoprophet just fine.
oh and since our terrorist attcks our goverment is pushing EU to ban semi auto REGiSTERED and hard to get rifles and airsoft because of what?
Do not ban guns, ban Kebabs
I'm a 1LT in the Army and I've been told by an E7 that you can't shoot people with .50 BMG. The closest I can find about this old rumor is an old tank where the manual said the .50 wasn't for suppressing infantry. This is totally false.
I've also been told that the M14 was the most accurate rifle on the planet and civilians can't own it because it's a perfect sniper weapon.

Na. Not really. I was a Marine fag too. If you think you are just going to trot up to a military unit with a Highpoint + walmart red dot scope and be welcomed as a designated marksman, you really are autistic. Also, you probably can't shoot for shit if you don't know what bore-sighting is, let alone how to dope in a red dot sight. Finally, there is not going to be a second full out civil war between refugees and the military (at least not in the US).
I agree. I omitted the part where they got really angry and started shouting at me when I told them that they were wrong. On a similar vein, I had a woman a month ago try to buy 15 lbs of Tannerite for her son as a gift...her son who lives in Colorado who she was going to attempt to board a plane to fly to in three hours. She got LIVID when I told her it would be an insanely bad idea to try to bring 15 lbs of Tannerite on a plane.

Different gunstore guy here.
99% of the time it goes like this

>guy lifts shirt and pulls loaded pistol hes mexican carrying, usually ends up nonchalantly pointed straight at my gut with finger on trigger
>"this, cant remember what it is"
>calmly mention I dont like having loaded guns pointed at me and to please carefully get your finger off the trigger
>guy gets embarrassed
>eh, happens all the time
>proceed to sell holster
Most of the time it is along the lines of, "Well, we will see how you feel about that when you get off of work tonight"
Occasionally your more uppity "urban youth" will start shouting blasts of urban gibberish that I can't come close to understanding
The worst one I actually had was a local cop (local cops suck dick...feds are awesome and bro tier...but local cops are morons with a chip on their shoulder a fair amount of the time).
>Me - I'm sorry sir, I can't sell this gun to you at the moment because your drivers license and concealed carry permit are not current since you said that you moved. However, I would be happy to hold these in the vault for you while you get your cards updated. I can also hold the sale price for you as well
>Cop- That's fucking bullshit
>Me - I agree man, but the rules are the rules and I don't want the ATF jumping down my throat. Would you like me to hold the firearms for you?

I fucking hate working in a small(er) town gun store where a few families basically run the city
Yeah. I get a lot of dumb customers but almost nobody aggressive or sketchy. One of a very short list of pros of working at a mom n pop shop in the northern midwest. Havent seen a person of color (nigger or otherwise) in the store yet. 95% white, 4% hispanic (legal) farmhands, and the one dot-indian veterinarian that wanted a long range euthanasia tool for calfing season after a mama cow fucked him up trying to clear a deformed calf.
>"Well, we will see how you feel about that when you get off of work tonight"
Fucking unbelievable. It must take all your self-restraint not to shove the barrel of your carry weapon in their fucking mouth, Jesus.
I'm glad you called the cops on that fucking cop though. What a PRICK.

I did not know what to say so I just acknowledged with a grunt and looked at the LGS' gunsmith and we both shared this bullshit look.
Ive been at this store for 11 years now. I did that when I first started, but after I had filled my second institutional-sized pickle jar I gave up.
I have insisted the owner not repair the bullet hole in the ceiling from a Colt 6920 that shipped with a live round in the chamber though.
Apparently you're french. I'm going to go on a rant here. It's nothing personal but fuck France!
I'm a finn and thanks to your pussy ass government not wanting to deal with the real problem which is failed integration policies and radicalization of kebabs the EU is trying to ban semi-autos in my country which would mean the total collapse of our ability to defend anything since most of our army reserves myself included don't get to train their weapon skills unless they finance it themselves by buying their own weapons and ammunition..
And since the fall of Soviets and thus diminished Russian influence the rightwingers took power and have been cutting everything they can without the left getting all revolutionary on their arses which has pretty much been military and law enforcement spending. Now in some parts of the country in a case of a emergency you'll have to wait the cops to respond from good 30 minutes to one and half hours.. This plus strict EU -style gun laws plus high influx of Kebabs and you know we're fucked..
Thanks a lot you snail eating froggie bunch of pussies!
>LT incharge of knowing shit about anything
Fuck off, sir. And suck that E7s cock while you're at it.
You technically CANNOT shoot an M2 at a person unless "you fear for you life." That is every M2 range I was ever at and everything you were ever told if you were a .50 cal gunner and i was.
I mean, no one listens to it, but it has it's roots in it being inhumane and likely something in the hauge or geneva conventions. Like hollow points.
Again, no one actually follows this, but it is technically true and you better know it if you use or are incharge of someone using a .50 cal.
Ive had 3 factory sealed guns arrive at the store loaded. The one from Colt, and two Winchester shotguns. Ive also gotten boltguns from pretty much every major manufacturer with a fired round still chambered. Remington, Winchester, Savage, Tikka, Ruger, and T/C.
On the one hand, at least you know they're getting test fired.
On the other, WHAT THE FUCK GUYS.
Anyway, lemme know if you want the story. Cant say its too funny but will tell if theres interest.
>most NATO countries employ a .50bmg precision rifle in a primarily, if not exclusively, antipersonnel role
>more than half of them officially designate it a sniper rifle
The whole thing about not using .50 on people is a gentlemans agreement between currently-allied nations and appears nowhere in any treaties. Furthermore the US ratified neither the Hague accords nor the Geneva convention and as such isnt bound to them.
>a 22lr can kill a man up to 300meters (told by a french gendarmerie officier a we were shooting our .22lr in the backyard.
Fucking this, im also french, people telling me .22 is one of the most dangerous rounds
>>most NATO countries employ a .50bmg precision rifle in a primarily, if not exclusively, antipersonnel role
>.50bmg precision rifle in a primarily, if not exclusively, antipersonnel role
>.50bmg in exclusively, antipersonnel role
You're an idiot, every .50 cal rifle we have is antimaterial even in name. Do we use them for people, yes, but your E7 was still right.
I mean, you're a fucking O2, a step above a butter bar. Listen to your damn senior NCOs for fucks sakes.
Well, it kills more civilians world wide than any other caliber.
This is mainly due to it being used significantly more than any other caliber, and not because the round is in any way more lethal than anything else (except maybe .25acp, fuck .25acp).
But to say it isnt dangerous is a flat fucking lie. It retains lethal energy at any distance you can intentionally hit a person at. The odds might be pretty low of it producing a fatal wound at 300m, but it definitely is capable of it.
>actually hitting a person at 300m with .22lr is another story
Im a different guy. Im a medically retired E6.
Yes, the US calls it an AM rifle. The canucks and krauts call theirs sniper rifles though. You will notice I referred to them in the general category of precision rifle and pointed out SOME countries call them sniper rifles.
Holy fuck you guys are getting mad at shit that happened only in your imagination.
it's standard liberal logic
>da police is rayciss and ebil and oppressive and omg police brutality
>da ebil conservatives with their spying and strong military is so ebil and oppressive and stupid lol look they lost to taliban and vietnam
>you don't need guns, only the police should have guns, you could never stand up to the glorious military anyways
fucking blows the mind. The same people that say cops are racist evil pigs who are hunting blacks in the streets are the same people who say that those poor innocent black people shouldn't be allowed to have guns and only the police should have them.
Well, if you have the shot placement of a god, then a sling is as lethal at 300m too. No one has that shotplacement with these jokes though, and both are not accurate at 300m.
I think .22 peters out at 150, accuracy wise. But yes, if you actually get hit in the noggin or heart, etc, at most any range with a .22 it can kill you dead.
My old 1SG got a grazing shot in the head from a .22, did that spin through your whole outer cranium skin thing (like you see with helmet hits sometimes) and pooped out the back.
it's the other way around isn't it? a .357 magnum can also shoot 38 special?
lol glad you refused to sell a gun to that retard.
ugh worst CoD myth ever. people think shotguns just fucking spread shot everywhere. in 5-10 yards some buckshot loads will only spread to about the size of a fist.....
>cherrypicks words out of a sentence to completely change its meaning
>assumes NATO means solely the US
>admits the US' "anti materiel" rifle is primarily used for shooting people
>still insists its exclusively an anti materiel rifle
Well the still tell M2 gunners this shit all over the country and make sure you know to repeat "I feared for my life" if you are asked why you used that big scary powerful .50 on that poor little raghead.
I never said it was easy, or probable.
But that guy was dealing in absolutes. A .22 CAN kill a human at 300m. Will it? Depends. First you gotta find someone capable of hitting a human somewhere vital at 300m, which is a feat (and includes a good share of luck).
>.22lr craps out at 150m as far as accuracy
That depends on a lot of things. Your standard HV bulkpack stuff yeah, because a round loses stability and accuracy as it transitions from super to sub. Which is why all match .22lr is subsonic to start with.
Ive shot a bit of smallbore and a lot of silhouette, and have shot well out to 250 yards/230ish meters with match .22lr. At 200y I can hold a 3" 10 shot group (which almost never even places in the top 10). So it is doable.
I remember hearing that's bullshit though. The whole "shooting 50 at people is inhumane, it's supposed to be anti-materiel, Geneva convention says so" or whatever. It's one of those things that gets passed around a lot but I don't think I've ever seen a source for it.
Yes they do.
It is wrong. But it doesnt hurt anything and there is no reason to change.
Wonder why it is they dont make the snipers carrying the Barretts repeat that...could it be theyre just playing fuck-fuck games with the easily replaced lower enlisted turret jockeys?
>cuts the entire middle out of a sentence, thus changing the meaning from "frequently if not always used" to "it is only ever used as and was designed solely as"
You even gave a 3 line breakdown of you editing out words so it fit your delusion.
Go suck start a handgun.
The closest is the Saint Petersburg Declaration of 1868, which prohibits fragmenting, explosive, and incendiary small arms ammunition. The iffiniess there is because a 12.7mm weapon could be construed either as a small arm or a heavy weapon, so it is the status of exploding or incendiary 12.7mm which is in question.
Regular rounds are fine. Hell, the US isn't even a signatory party.
Thats because it is bullshit. Bullshit that continues to be propagated by people with a lot of rockers dripping off a lot of chevrons that payed attention to 1/10th of an ROE brief in the 90s, never bothered to ask further questions or read the globally publicly available source documents, and made their subordinates do stupid things just to keep them busy.
You will note that despite claiming this prohibition comes from a treaty pretty much every western country ratified (yet the US, funnily, did not), ONLY the US has any hangup about publicly blasting people with .50s.
This, Norway is getting fucked with this EU bullshit too. We're not even a member state, just EEA, so we're gonna get the EU assram without even getting a vote.
And it's snailgarlic's fault for not controlling kebabs
Is anyone "mainstream" in europe acknowledging that the kebabs with illegal guns are still going to have illegal guns even when they ban more completely different guns?
Anything like this at all?
Yes, thankfully, when this shit was presented at the EU (I don't know the right names for this shit, we're not members) a bunch of the reps already had shitloads of emails from the shooter community about it.
No surprise, the most vocal countries were Finland, CZ and Germany who were all "lolwut gtfo fifi"
The danger is most of them don't understand the difference, and they are trying to slide in the legal semi auto ban alongside a (arguably sensible) standardisation process for deactivated guns.
this all started because one of teh AKs the kebabs used turned out to be a reactivated AK built from parts. the problem was, an AK certifiably deactivated in country A can be used as a parts kit for another AK certifiably deactivated in country B. Take the two together and you have enough parts for a real fullauto AK.
the noguns dicks then use this as a "main issue" whilst tagging on a bunch of other bullshit, like a ban on "militaristic semi auto" or "legal firearms that give the appearance of a full auto".
Every time I've talked to a fudd they tell me about how, ".22lr can kill a man after traveling a mile"
They always say, "hurr der velocity" "bullet bounces inside yer skull" etc
Maybe its a Maine thing anyone else heard this fuddlore?
I'm old enough to remember times when Finland still practiced the castle doctrine.. Even my mom considered buying a handgun back then but then our government banned home defense to please their garlic-loving European overlords..
If you see a really retarded post, like you know who's, just report it because it is breaking rules. Don't reply to it directly.
Norwegian hunting and gun orgs have spoken out against it, but we lack the real political leverage because we have no MEPs.
The petition: https://www.change.org/p/council-of-the-european-union-eu-you-cannot-stop-terrorism-by-restricting-legal-gun-ownership
has been noticed by the MEPs though, which is good
>Is anyone "mainstream" in europe acknowledging that the kebabs with illegal guns are still going to have illegal guns even when they ban more completely different guns?
Not in Finland since even considering the idea of kebabs being able to commit crimes is considered as hate speech.
But I'll save you the trouble of actually reading before spewing shit.
>Doctrine for the Browning M2 HB .50 caliber machinegun is contained in U.S. Army Field Manual 23-65 (May 1972). Paragraph 80 provides in part:
>Types of targets. Targets presented to the machinegunners during combat will in most cases consist of enemy soldiers in various formations which require distribution and concentration of fire . . . .
>a. Point targets are targets which require the use of a single aiming point. Enemy bunkers, weapons emplacements, vehicles, small groups of soldiers, and aerial targets such as helicopters or descending paratroopers are examples of point targets . . . .
Who just goes on the internet and tells lies like that?
I am not looking for joke answers, how the fuck did the first idiot even come up with that story? Did someone else tell him and he bought it without checking it out, did he make it because lying for "the greater good" is ok?
What the fuck? Three seconds in google blows this out of the water.
What the fuck?
BTW, I'm that LT. And I was an E6 before I went to OCS. And that E7 was not correct. He has also since been kicked out of the Army for being an idiot and using a stolen GTCC and going AWOL when he was caught.
I'm sure he'd like his cock sucked. Feel free to look him up.
That's because its a crew served weapon you obtuse fuckwit.

Maybe the system is made this way so retards like you don't succeed.
I dunno about a full grown man, but a 16 year old kid our family knew was killed by a .22 rifle when his friend somehow "accidentally" shot him. He was at the end of a 200 yard range.
English isn't phonetic
It's also not a shit language that has gender designations for objects, using "it" for objects makes the most sense and it shouldve always been this way. Other languages also steal words from english now.
Also, what kind of mongoloid finds public school difficult. Even if it is an indoctrination camp doesn't mean it's not pathetically easy. I hate meeting fuck ups like you who go on and whine about everything and everyone but yourself for how shitty everything is for you.
I get the distinct impression that those people honestly think that blacks only use guns because white people have guns. I met more than a few people when I was in college that truly believe that banning guns will somehow end all gun violence like magic. These are the same people that look at you like you're an insane person if you tell them you may not vote because "It's your RIGHT!", but think you're a homicidal lunatic if you own a gun for whatever reason, rights be damned.
that a .308 rifle will accurately shoot a mile all day long
Nah, looking like a firearm that is able to do automatic fire. This means that every fucking semi-auto rifle based on military assault rifle, semi AR, HK, AK, ARX, SCAR, MP, Uzi, etc. is in this category.
Yyyyup, if this shit passes, you barely gonna have a semi-auto rifle.
Perhaps it is just because I am vaguely learn'ed about guns that I don't look at "military style" guns and think MACHINE GUN! I guess I get how the average person could make the mistake though.
I agree with you about the medication, you yanks are waaaaay to happy handing that shit out. As for school, its mostly there so you can add up, talk, spell and have a general grasp of generic things you'll likely encounter in life. That's about it.
If you think school should be some sort of safe space for expanding your horizosn then you're deluded.

Thats when I got uncomfortable and sorta finished the conversation, thanked him and left after buying some buckshot.
Why do people experienced with guns still spout bullshit like that?
I knew next to nothing about guns beyond skeet shooting and my 10/22 at that point, and the way this guy seemed shocked that I wanted an AR to hunt suprized me a lot.
Anyways, fuck basspro, I'm a much more knowledgeable owner now and I'm glad I went ahead and built my AR. Yet to kill any hogs with it though because I still don't know anyone who hunts them.
>a 22lr can kill a man up to 300meters
But that's true.
Will it kill *reliably*? No. But if one of those gets you in the throat the next farm over you're pretty much fucked.
Soldiers get killed all the time by shrapnel the size of a pencil eraser. It really doesn't take that much.
>>"Shotguns? Those are what can be used to shoot down aircraft, right?
I'm picturing someone hiding in the tall grass off the end of a runway and lighting off a vintage punt gun right as a Cessna lifts off.
I don't think the french cop was talking about intentionally shooting someone.
I think he was being condescending and implying that anon was going to fuck up and put a round in the air.
>one .50 cal round will stop a car's engine faster than several .308s
He read that in Chris Kyle's book that .50 is basically pointless to use for stopping soft target vehicle engines compared to .30 caliber rifles. He Then proceded to say how he knows more than a SEAL sniper and that how Chris Kyle "doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about".
Keep in mind this is my CS:GO tier little brother...
I kinda think your full of shit.
> You technically cannot shoot an M2 the ONLY .50 bmg weapon at a person unless you fear for your life.
In a combat situation wouldn't any haji with an AK be a potential life hazard? Or your buddies life hazard?
You were an M2 gunner in call of duty maybe.
Charter arms 38s don't chamber 357. Same as LCRs and, 2 separate smiths and a taurus.
Maybe some old as fuck/beat to shit revolver. They designed the cartridge specificly to not be able to fit all the way.
> don't tell my boss I was fucking around loading guns in the gun cage.
NO DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS RETARD/TROLL.
Do not try to fire 357 mag out of a 38. EVEN IF YOU CAN FORCE IT TO FIT ON THE CYLINDER. You will at the lease loose a few fingers.
I say again. Do NOT fire 357 magnum out of a 38 special.
>He thinks integration ever doesn't fail
Playing right into their hands, goyim.
