Re: Fictional consolidation of calibers

Through this statement, I'll assume you don't know jack about what you're talking about, because the ballistics of those three calibers are pretty different. ... It's all about transposing real-life ballistic data into game data. Uh, he is correct, if you care at all about real life ballistics spen...

Re: Would you buy this rifle?

It says it's a blowback action, which the kriss is, but it clearly still has the piston operating rod from the 416.

Seems like a photoshop mashup that doesn't actually take into account how the guns work.

Re: SRD; defend this. please.

Lets ask this: Is there any police dept. in the US that has their officers carry with an empty chamber, and then use racking their handgun as a means of compliance and as a step in force escalation? I doubt it. And I think we can all easily see why, the same logic should apply to shotguns. However,...

Re: SRD; defend this. please.

Just like simply producing a handgun has the very real potential to end an encounter I imagine the implied presence of a shotgun via it racking may work as well. That said putting any real faith in it as a defensive technique is clown shoes. I don't think you can really argue that racking the shotg...

I'm confused...if there was truly a danger why did you go out to the street and get his wife's attention? This couldn't have been handled from the yard?

Re: What to carry what to leave

After reading a lot of threads I've noticed that people are either bugging out with a firearm.

The weapon and ammo is going to...

Re: Amsteel Bracelet?

Amsteel is not really good for uses where knots are used, its best used where it can be rolled on a winch or spliced. I don't think the samthane coating has anything to do with helping hold knots, it's all about abrasion resistance. Crazily you can find a ton of info about amsteel on the Hammock For...

Re: Shotgun for HD and BO, you dont feel out-gunned?

Personally I believe 22 lr is the best HD/ Bug out weapon. The round isn't going to over penetrate like a shotgun so you don't have to worry about hurting your family in the next room. It doesn't pack the punch of a 12 gauge but my 22 has 25 rounds that I plan on pumping into any bad doer stupid en...

Re: Shotgun for HD and BO, you dont feel out-gunned?

The 22 is also enough gun to fight off most raiders in a SHTF scenario since we have established it's easier to raid liberals anyway. Trolling is generally frowned on here.

Re: Anyone ever give up on a caliber?

To the OP - dude, all you need is a spare barrel and a barrel nut wrench... you can swap it out in 15 minutes. Shoot 5.56 all day long, and when 300 BLK comes back in stock, either swap your barrel back in, or build a new upper around it. Two great calibers ready to rock. I'm looking into it, and i...

There are plenty of calibers I used to own a firearm in and currently do not.
Give up as in, stop waiting for ammo to become available and move on to a platform that uses ammo I can actually find.

I have no desire to start reloading or buying ammo online which makes this caliber pretty much dead to me. That makes no sense. Why not order online?

Anyone ever give up on a caliber?

I bought a 300 BLK rifle a while ago. The promise of cheaper 300 factory ammo from Remington turns out have become a myth; Remington 115 gr. is no longer produced. I have not seen any ammo in the store to feed my rifle for over a year. I never prepped as deep in this caliber as many would suggest on...
