What do you all think of the SA80A3 prototype?
(Don't ask why it looks like the MOD just got to 10th prestige)
Still no polymer lower receiver like DSTL promised me
So I want to obtain an associates of science in firearms technology. Whats a good school to look at /k/.
I need more
Go to Russian /k/ and bring something back.
so my father knows i like stuff like this and sent me an old soviet-era gas mask with a filter that is basically brand new and unused, but the bag also had this
anyone knows what the fuck is this?
I'm looking to get a starter rifle, and am trying to decide between a yugo m48, and a Mosin 91/30. What are the pros and cons of each rifle?
You really don't want to start out with milsurp man. It's going to cost you a lot more and take a lot longer to learn your fundamentals. Not to mention you may find out you don't actually like shooting, or you don't like surplus.
This just happened to me, and I thought it'd be a good chance to make a thread.
>live in Ohio
>Pretty based if you don't mind corn
>Almost no restrictions on firearms, open carry legal without license is legal, etc
>Until 3-4 years ago, there was a law stating it was legal to own but not use magazines with a capacity of 31+
>ie, STANAG was gucci, 33rd Glock mags weren't
>could still legally own, just not use
>show father the ECHO trigger because I have one installed for shits and giggle
>tells me he was telling a cop about it at work
>father works at a hospital, cop is a guard
>father tells me he and the cop were discussing how much fun it would be with a belt
>discussed the legality of belts in Ohio
>"He said belts are illegal. They're considered machine guns"
>wtf dad no
>"Drums are okay because they're not technically magazines"
>try to explain to him how any law regarding mag capacity is moot for several years
>tell him how when that law was repealed, my local FFL stocked up with 40 round Pmags and drums
>he still doesn't believe me
>I own close to $80k in guns and make a point to know the laws inside and out
>he chooses to believe the rent-a-cop who
doesn't even own an AR and tells me not to do anything illegal
As an American I also wouldnt believe that anything gun related is banned and illegal
Maybe he needs to understand that commies actually made those laws and its time to fight against those dipshits
Ohio is a shit hole. Fun laws are ok, but doesn't make up for the fact that the entire population falls into the category of: hay seed bumpkin or criminal nigger. The bumfuck-nowhere-town I was in had an unusual factoid: over 50% of the male population had been charged and convicted with felonies. Literally every other male you saw had served time. I reiterate: Ohio is a shit hole.
Itt: weapons you dont like but have to respect and why on both fronts
Why I dont care for it
>handles recoil badly in my experience
Why I have to respect it
>5+ years of heavy use and mediocre maintenance with no hiccups to speak of
>saw someone one shot a charging horse with one (can greentext that story if anyone wants)
>hasnt exploded yet
>any gun that destroys brass
>blowback operated guns in anything more powerful than a pistol round
I see guns that mangle brass as having a design flaw, but i recognize that they do have their benefits and that the flaws don't inpact some users. I have an admittedly irrational hatred toward rifle caliber blowback guns, and the fact that most murder brass doesn't help
>wear shitty foreign military surplus to the store
>"Thank you for your service!"
