Snagged an Anderson lower at the gun show today for $40. Let's build something. Here are my ideas:
>24 inch 6.5 Grendel rifle
>8.5 inch .300BLK pistol with one of those collapsible pistol braces and a fostech AR-II trigger
>lightweight 16inch 5.56 rifle

I already have an 18inch POF 415 and a Century Galil in 5.56 so I'm leaning toward a different caliber. I don't really have a long range gun so 6.5 sounds fun but I also don't live near either of my farms right now so it's hard to justify building the Grendel with nowhere to shoot it. I do already have dies, brass, projectiles and powder for .300BLK and I've also always liked the pdw AR look. The only reason I'm even thinking about a lightweight 5.56 is because my AR and Galil are both pushing 9lbs so something handier would be neat. Let's hear some compelling arguments.

go for a 14.5 lightweight build, pin & weld a comp so you're at 16.1 overall
>>
>>35197639
Nahhh if I do a legal rifle, I'm definitely going for a full 16" to maximize velocity for 5.56. If it's under 16", I'm going .300BLK. Plus pinned 14.5s look like ass

Pistol is an option.

My 11 year old son's shooting competitively with the local 4-H chapter again this year. .22lr with iron sights at short range. He shot last year with a Browning semi-automatic that's a hell of a rabbit gun, but isn't really set up for target shooting. He did well, and was a member of the first three-shooter team from our county to ever medal at the district competition, but he's finally realized he needs a target rifle rather than a hunting rifle. I'm looking for opinions on which rifles to look at. He'll be prone with support this year, 3 position with no support after that. I'd prefer a bolt action. Budget is $600 because his mom and I are both teachers. I'm thinking Savage, but I'm definitely open to suggestion. Pic unrelated.

Get him an Anizo. They have a pretty good range.

CZ 455 or Browning T-Bolt

>Anzio

Went and googled it. That might be a bit much for the indoor law enforcement range where the district shoots are held.

Hey boys my girl and I are going to a party as a cowboy and cowgirl and I figure since my state allows open carry that I should use this as an excuse to get a real revolver instead of some dinky toy.

I'm torn between the .44 and the .357 Magnum. Which does /k/ prefer these days? What's the best make/model of each?

Also, any recs regarding holsters with a traditional look?

I am also interested in what /k/ would recommend. I think the .357 is an all-around better round but the .44 has that classic big revolver appeal.
>>
>>35196230
Open carrying to a party for any reason is a dumbshit thing to do.

I want a real Revolver and holster to complete the authentic Cowboy look. The rest of my costume is authentic so I figure this part should be too. And it's also an excuse to finally buy a revolver w/o my girl bitching about the cost help a brotha out /k/

What was gun culture like in the 1990s?

I can only attest to the supremely bubbafied context of western Pennsylvania gun owners: actions were operated with bolts -semiautos are inhabited by enraged machine spirits that deliberately jam out of spite.

When in the 1990s? 1991 was much different from 1998.

1991 was a golden age. You could buy a Norinco SKS and the gunstore would give you 1000 rounds of ammo to go with it for free. Milsurp rifles of all kinds for under $50 each. Enfield? $44. Nugget? $29. Surplus Makarovs, Cz pistols, and AKs were pouring in from the eastern bloc. FALs were plentiful and cheap. You could still get Uzis and HKs for reasonable prices despite the '89 import ban. Full auto wasn't yet retardedly expensive.

The internet didn't exist and there wasn't much useful knowledge available, but if you had a good LGS or went to a gunshow (they were worthwhile then) you could get any of this stuff. No Brady check, either. Cash and carry with maybe a 4473.

Fudd shit still ruled but that was changing with the supercheap milsurp, 80s action movie effects, and the widespread adoption of wondernines. More and more people would show to the range with an AK or AR. Things still weren't nearly as tactical. If you were under 30 you were the odd one out and the elderly fudds would glare at you suspiciously when you walked into the LGS.

Revolver vs. semi, .45 vs. 9mm, and M14/AK vs. M16 arguments were way more intense back then compared to now.

Are there options other than the vortex spitfire for people that want to see a clear 1x dot/reticle and have astigmatism?
(and don't want to deal with the eye-box of a 1 to X variable scope)

most all ICBM lack that kind of pin point accuracy, they are more area weapons, all hardened facilities are designed with that in mind

is there a subterranean maglev system and underground bases with aliums?

Only in the American southwest.

I thought these days ICBMs could be accurate within a meter or two
