How often do soldiers switch to full auto? If anyone has had training on this I would be curious
>>
>>28507809
i never thought any of that
ever

>>28507825
Almost never, plus mostly 3 round burst mang, unless u oper8tor
>>
>>28507825
From my understanding, basically never. Semi auto gets the job done without burning through all your ammo.

The way we do it only the lead scout will engage full auto at the start of a contact and this is only in close country. Or if shit hits the fan and your conducting a break contact drill or counter ambush drill.

I didn't know how dialing in your sights for longer range shots worked

Unless you're using an LMG for covering fire I would say 5 round bursts would be the absolute max (and that's for close range engagements) semi or small bursts are good

In general, its true, yes. Not always

Newfag here, I have to say I thought the same thing about the deagle lol

But I'm curious as to why you say shotguns are not the best for home defence? What is better?
>>
>>28507809

>any long gun that fired pistol ammo was a submachine gun

This is basically true except for semi-auto-only carbines.
>>
>>28507825
when shit gets real bad. same as side-arm
>>
>>28508098
it's only true for gas-alarm guns
they have not enough pressure to cycle reliably so revolvers are actually more dependable
>>
>>28508127

side arm is used to get to your primary arm, newfag. except when out of ammo which basically shouldnt happen
>>
>>28508156
no.
side arm is there so that you don't have to save a bullet from your primary so the sandniggers don't get you alive.
>>
>>28508156
it happens, newfag. i used my sidearm like twice in 25 years, fullauto once.
>>
>>28508118

Unwieldy, over-penetrates, slow rate-of-fire.

My go-to would be my AR. Less unwieldy, .223/5.56 will, on average, penetrate less than most common shot and handgun rounds, significantly higher rate-of-fire while allowing for better retention of control.
>>
>>28508118
Yeah I would say some .45 ACP hollow point is the best for home defense. If you hit someone in the leg they are going down and have no chance of getting back up
>>
>>28508194
Why would you want a huge rate of fire for home defence though

Do you plan on shooting one or two nig nogs that broke into your house 15 times each?

And they make home defence rounds for shotguns, not to mention you can put a pistol grip on the shotgun for the whole unweildy thing
>>
>>28508179
You used a full auto side arm? Oh shit you must be oper8tor af

>>28508245

Are you okay with the possibility of missing those couple of shots which the shotgun's rate-of-fire allows for?

>But Anon, I'm not going to miss.

That can't be automatically assumed.

As for the second point, a home defense shell for a shotgun is still a shot-shell which will, on average, over-penetrate more than a typical intermediate cartridge. As well, "home-defense" rounds exist for nearly every firearm available, making that point moot.

A pistol grip will not make a shotgun barrel shorter. A saw will, but then you run the risk of poking the BAFTE-bear.
A 16" carbine firing an intermediate round is significantly easier to sustain fire with than an 18" 12-gauge shotgun.
>>
>>28508118
Any carbine man.

AR is my go-to right now. The round is a small, fast bastard that tears itself apart in bodies/walls.

Shotgun rounds that will do a significant amount of damage to a person, will go through walls like there's nothing there. Because they're big, slow, fat mother fuckers that don't give a shit about stuff in their way. Think bowling ball or wrecking ball against a building.

Pistol rounds are the slow, fit guy that you wouldn't want to run into, because he's fucking huge. They just barrel through walls like a regular fucker.

Fast, small rounds zip through, destroy themselves on the wall fast, or in the body. Slow, fat mother fuckers don't give a shit that there's anything there.

Being the local gun-nut among my friends, I have to explain to them time-and-again how if they are only going to get one gun, and are willing to spend $X, and will not be CC-ing, an AR should be their primary home-defense firearm.

They still come back later with "I wanna fuddy-five so I'm guaranteed the fucker will drop".

>what is better?
Small caliber military rifles (5,56, 5.45, etc.) with detachable magazines are better because they offer a lot more versatility, larger capacity, and fast follow up shots.

Glad you fuckers enjoyed it.

I'm switching my home defense gun to an SBR'd PS90 with a suppressor on it. Why?

Because fuck you that's why.

Also because it's a small, fast bastard of a round that with the right bullet tears through flesh like a fraternity brother tears through sorority girls.

Also 5.7 is incredibly quiet out of a silenced SBR.

Sucks to suck.

I got my PS90 for $1000. Got a Vortex VIPER red dot to go on it for about $150.

Total the build will run me $1500 after the NFA stamp.

I was somehow convinced that the gun had to be locked, and not move, at all, to safely fire. In my head i was struggling to envision brass fucking teleporting through solid KRUPP STAHL somehow.

A handgun for a few reasons.

>easier to manipulate in tight spaces

>follow up shots (a lot of close gunfights involve a few moments of skraight blasting, whosoever blasts the most often wins)
>point and click

A downside would that missing under stress may be a bit easier. Shotguns dont have some magical ability to insta crit humans or whatever people think, sure, being paralyzed due the effects of the massive temporary cavity exists, but passing a bullet close to or through a CNS area is devastating for most centerfire calibers.

In the Canadian military the only time full auto should be used according to doctrine is when storming a trench or if you are told to do so by your section commander. Even when conducting urban ops, we only really use "repetition"

There are, but theres good, solid mechanical reason you dont see pistol grips on semi auto shotguns. shooting one without having the stock on something that wont move much is the equivalent of limp wristing an auto pistol like a glock or something. the recoil accelrates the gun at a pace too close to the bolt speed, and it malfunctions. this is even more likely under stress, or in hand to hand combat wrestling for a shotgun. it goes off, or you try to shoot it from a weird position and it jams.

Rifles dont have this problem in a non-trivial sense, their bolt speed is supa lightning quick, just ask your local Armalite Rifle.
>>
>>28508987
not agreeing with it, but buckshot gives the same effect as fragmenting 5.56. The damage it inflicts is much greater than the sum of the diameter of its projectiles
>>
>grain measurement was actually the number of grains of gunpowder in that round
>>
>>28511374

It sounds legit though. Back in the days of black powder when they ran the paste through a screen it would make large granules.
>>
>>28509041
It seems carbines are preferable for home defense, but I was looking at something like what kel tec makes. With a stock of course but less total length than most shotguns.
>>
>>28511374

That's more or less how they measured black powder back in the day


>used to think military ball ammo was literally a ball in a brass cartridge
>M2 ball was a a .30 caliber ball stuffed in a .30-06 case

Although I'm half right because when the army used muzzleloaders it was literally ball ammo, as opposed to shot.
