What's a good first-time rifle to buy? I've been considering the CETME-L for a long time, but they're relatively uncommon and from what I've read have had issues with jamming, hence why they were replaced. However I love the overall design of it, but don't want to spend a ton of money on a gun that I won't like and can't return. Does anyone have experience with this gun and can give an honest opinion?
Replies: >>338 >>412

PTRs are very similar to that and from my experience they don't have issues with jamming, but they will fuck up your brass so if you reload then it's not a good idea. Also .308/7.62x51 rounds are pretty expensive nowadays.
How much experience do you have with shooting anyway? If you don't have that much then it might be a better idea to go to a range and rent multiple guns to try them out and see what you like best, because sometimes the stuff you like the look of can turn out to be a tremendous pain in the ass when you actually go to use it.

Basically none with rifles, I usually go shooting with my P09 at the range, and quite frankly I am not very good. I did a lot better with my Ranger 120 and slugs, but I'd still like a proper raifu just so I have one of each; I never really wanted more than that anyways.

Sorry to be that guy, but for a first time rifle a basic bitch milspec AR15 is the most reasonable option. Easy to shoot/low recoil, accurate, modern manual of arms, shitloads of aftermarket if you want to improve it later, etc.

If we're talking wild and unreasonable, just pick whatever is coolest that you can afford. CETME-Ls are incredibly hit and miss however, so be warned. Some were built by professional gunsmiths and have had the bugs worked out, and some were made by the proverbial Bubba in his garage who don't need no fancyass tools 'cause a Dremel's all ya need.

This works too but you need to be really careful to not get ripped off, some gun stores are run by absolute niggers who know how to sniff out newbies and will shill a subpar build for like three times its actual worth. If you realize that is happening then you should just leave and find a better store because I personally have never been in one run by people like that where the inventory was worth even half a shit.

That's certainly a much better idea than paying $3000 for a build that's all rails and no iron sights as his first rifle.
I'm about to go to a gun show for the first time since the cuck cough lockdowns. I know shit's probably going to be retarded expensive but it also makes me wonder if I could make a decent little chunk of change selling some of my old army bullshit. Like I have several basically pristine sets of those hideous digital camo ACUs that were replaced by multicam. I also have multiple extra camelbacks I was issued that I haven't even taken out of the packages (like 10) and a few other extra things.
Would it be worth trying to sell that kind of shit at a gun show?

Well I went to that show and the more modern firearms were surprisingly inexpensive, but the old school shit the boomerniggers always sell was jacked up far past 300%. Like anyone's gonna pay $5000 for a beat up double barrel shotgun from the 19th century, I get collectors are retards who willingly get findommed but Jesus Christ. All of the ammo was still ridiculously expensive though of course.
Anyway the type of military shit I have that I wanted to sell was going for very cheap unfortunately, there's a lot of bases around me so there probably isn't much of a shortage when it comes to any zogbot shit that was issued post-2003.
It's mostly the WW2 - Desert Storm era shit that's massively inflated in price.

Get a .22lr because you need to practice. Savage Model 64 goes for less than $150. After that either

A: Buy a lower ($60?), and add a cheap PSA kit ($350) with a cheap punch set (<$37) should be sub $460 after transfer
B: Buy an M&P15 or Ruger AR-556, which will be way more expensive ($650+transfer), but way less to go wrong if you can't follow basic instructions
C: Buy a KP-15 lower on Brownells ($70 after coupon code), a compatible $100 drop in trigger, the rest of the lower parts+buffer spring/buffer ($57.12+anti-walk pins) and a PSA pencil upper for $389.99. Have super light gun.

I'm a nogunz fag about to get a gun sometime within the next few months. I'm definitely going to get a long gun and a pistol, but I'm wracking my head on whether a shotgun or rifle would be better, and whether a revolver or an auto pistol would be better. To provide context, my current situation is such that I may have to retreat innawoods in a hurry and on foot. In such a case, what would be the best choices for me?

>shotgun or rifle
Rifle. Ammo is (generally) cheaper, more plentiful and lighter weight. Accuracy is great at ranges from 0 - 500m instead of 0-150m for shotgun w/ slugs. RIfle reloading is easier in 90% of cases. Rifle is more adaptable and depending on type just buy an AR can fit any accessory you can think of.
>revolver or an auto pistol
Modern polymer auto loader. Ammo is (generally) cheaper and more plentiful. Autoloader is more adaptable because scary restricted quiet-tubes can be fitted.

If you have to face a dire situation and need a gun, be boring and pick common shit.

And pick something that feels comfortable in your hands and practice with it regularly, you aren't going to hit shit with something that feels awkward and you barely know how it handles when fired. Generally a heavier frame = less recoil = easier to reacquire the target after firing.

Thanks for the help, strelok. What are the best cheap ARs and 9mm pistols? How much ammo should I have for each, and what is the optimal magazine size and amount to have, e.g., 2 extra mags of 30 rounds each for the AR and 3 mags of 13 rounds for the 9mm?
Replies: >>578 >>579
>>577
>What are the best cheap ARs and 9mm pistols?
Palmetto State Armory makes good ARs for cheap - see >>412 
9mm pistols? PSA also offers the Dagger, which is a cheap glockalike, but any pistol from the common manufacturers is good - Glock, S&W, SIG, etc. You can often get these used for hundreds less than new price.
>How much ammo should I have for each
As much as possible.
>optimal magazine size and amount to have
Mission specific. You mentioned you may need to bug out into the woods. For that scenario a rifle takes priority. 4-6 loaded STANAG 30 rounders with more ammo in stripper clips should do it, but more or less may be called for depending on the situation. For pistol, 2 mags is probably max as long as you're bringing a rifle. If you're using a pistol in a rifle fight you are in deep shit and need to use those rounds to get out as fast as possible.

Take all this with a grain of salt, however. There are so many possible scenarios you could run into that trying to give such generalized advice borders on ignorant. If you end up traveling with a squad of guys who are fighting all the time, you may wish you'd packed a thousand rounds of ammo in dozens of mags. If you end up needing to cross over a suburban environment everyday you may wish you had invested more into your pistol because carrying a rifle is like carrying a billboard that says "I'm dangerous! Shoot me!" So again, this is generic. Carry shit that your average infantryman might. Aside from guns and ammo, remember to leave room for first aid, medicine, water, tools, extra clothing, etc.

Hi Points are ugly as fuck and very heavy but they're extremely cheap (as in less than $250 even today I think) and I haven't had too many jamming issues with the ones I've played around with at the range. I've never actually owned or had to clean one though so I don't know how much of a pain in the ass they are to maintain nor do I know how well they function when filthy (though that shouldn't be an issue if you maintain your equipment).
A lot of people talk shit on them because of how heavy and ugly they are seriously justblook at one but functionally they seem fine to me and if you're really strapped for cash it's as good as any other ghetto blaster.

I looked up the PSA's Hi-Points, and they look pretty good, but now I'm split between the 9mm and .45 models. Both have similar capacities, so I'm concerned about the power of each. Which would be better for use in that case?

Well in your case 9mm probably since you're on a budget, .45 is going to cost you more per round which means you'll be getting less target practice in for more money. Since you're not very experienced (I'm assuming unless you go shooting with friends and use their guns or something) it's better to get as much practice in with a cheaper round and then start experimenting with other rounds after you've got an understanding of the fundamentals.

Wish I could help. The only double stack .45acp pistols I can think of off the top of my head are the HK USP 45 which is retarded expensive and the Glocks which are not aesthetic.

.45acp is a weird cartridge for double stack. Most manufacturers seem to avoid it because it's so wide. Most of the time if there is a demand for a more-powerful-than-9mm, straight walled cartridge  for a given double stack pistol they'll engineer for solutions like .40S&W or 10mm

Hello. I would like to ask whether, in a conventional war scenario, if engineering degree graduates will be spared from the draft? and if not, if they could serve the war effort in some other way than simply being a grunt?

The circumstances of the war would be in eastern europe. So you would be a citizen of a country with a small, corrupt and inefficient army and an almost inexistent navy/airforce.

FYI I am from Romania and considering studying electrical engineering at an marine university so that I can be both an officer in the global merchant marine and an electrical engineer on land.

Depends, the army always tries to use your abilities but a) they might not have needs for your specialty b) you might end up as cannon fodder either way.

Basically, if third world war comes you are fucked either way. If you are as afraid as I am of your own state that has been nothing but an enemy your whole life enslaving you then sacrificing you in pointless conflict then you should have enough funds stored to bribe anyone, a plan of escape and preferably something to shoot at "recruiters"

>The regular post man is the one who gives you conscription notice? Don't they just knock on your door, armed, then take you with them willingly or not?
First they send notices by post, and only if too many people refuses to show up will the press gangs will go around gathering people. In Ukraine they pretty much reached the point where nearly everyone that can be drafted is already in the army, so they have to hunt draft dodgers. But initially they too just sent letters to people telling them to show up at the nearest recruitment centre.

Once you are in Serbia you just have to disembark the barque and get in touch with someone who can help you settle in Serbia for a while. Of course, the difficult part is that you would need connections so that you can join the crew of a barque just when things are about to turn hot, but if you can do that the actual journey will be quite simple.

It's a big chunk of land in relative disuse and the neighbor is defacto England/U.K., Venezuela only armed itself against both the loonies in the caribbeans (Trujillo and Castro, the latter succeeded) and one day to take back Esequiba but right now the country is in absolute shambles, they could've probably taken it back in the 50's and 70's, just maybe in the early 90's but not right now at all unless the brits want to see a shitload of pajeets and niggers being purged by a bunch of hunger-stricken mulattoes and cubans.

The land has been shown in venezuelan maps since forever so "officially annexing" said place probably means showing it as part of the country rather than in a different, cautionary color scheme to symbolize a Soon™ instance

I don't think it makes much sense, you're using night vision anyway in any situations where you could use something like that, so you've got to have a helmet to put it on, and that means you've got a helmet to put your illuminator on too, and unlike a rifle, your head is going to be facing the same direction you're aiming. 
Also, if my quick test with a regular flashlight and no NODs indicates anything, the IR illuminator on your helmet should enable you to aim with just the iron sights without the shadow of the gun in your hands covering anything on you point of aim. It won't be as tight as an illuminator on the pistol but you can use an IR laser or micro red dot that works with night vision. Especially if you're using one of those newfangled OPSIN monoculars and can differentiate colors.

I don't know I've never used it but I can understand why he wouldn't want to bother with imageboards anymore.

>not twoo scotsmen anons
lol this kind of shit is probably part if why these sites all died. No one is "true" enough of an anon for one another. As if there's some definite standard outside of "don't use a name".

It's mostly the unwritten rules of behaviour that do change over time but gradually enough that many anons get to know them even without knowing, there's some notable exceptions in which newfags get to do or post some content without knowing the why in them, for example dub checking was used to derail/castrate a shitty thread by using any dumb excuse which in that case was observing repeating digits aka every time 10 posts are made, and so on.
There might not be a definite standard but there truly is a set of common denominators that do make a "normal" or "real" anon.

>probably part if why these sites all died
They died because most anons have a threshold for activity/dopamine hits aka speed/PPH, those of us who stay here have adapted to very slow PPHs or visit out of pure daily routine which keeps being fed when we get to see something we like every week or so. Those who got out of this game wanted more/better activity and/or are tired of the drama which always happens but in this case got more petty because we are fewer.
Honestly a discordfag (closed, "tight" community) or twatterfag (open, "ambiguous" community) can be "normal" anons (open, "tight" and/or "ambiguous" community) but their base customs are different and when SHTF they will rely back on being fags rather than search another IB. These unwritten rules of behaviour are also the reason we can spot fairly easy when someone is from another IB and our particular problem is that we are weathered to be fairly peaceful while newer or bigger IB denizens are more chaotic and juvenile in nature. It always happened, even back in 4chaim the smaller boards were pretty rigid towards anons from the faster places and their numbers showed that, in their heyday you could see year-old threads in those boards.

/k/ died because of lack of /k/ontent, not enough funs, too much innadoors, not enough innawoods and ultimately too much meta. /b/ and maybe /r9k/ can sustain off of just 'imageboard culture' and navel gazing but that doesn't work at all when the source of the topic is external.
Current events threads helped fill the gap a little but it's a shadow of the old happening threads, when was the last time any OC was posted here? It's all just a spotty recap/summary from other places. the irony is this place would be completely dead if it weren't for content from discord/twitter/MSM that you all love to gaze down upon

And lack of content is due to lack of population and lack of population is due to lack of content.

Seems like folks will whiplash complaining about either too many tourists or a dead board. The magical place had to get going from nothing at some point, right? But as the saying goes "this too shall pass."
>too small to succeed
Define success. Are you looking for a steady somewhat reliable stream of content on this particular topic to passively consume and entertain you?
Anyone got a working link to the SECOND version of the "Redstone Killers" book put in do/k/uments just before the cafe got KIA?

How do you write in Russian? it gets annoying writing and pasting from this site https://www.lexilogos.com/keyboard/russian_conversion.htm and if I switch to russian keyboard it fucks me up the m o and a is on a different part of the keyboard. It causes brainfog when I switch back.'

Just, like, get a second keyboard for Russian. I am not even joking here, buying a cheap one online is better than suffering. Except if the problem is on the software side.
