That's cool and all that a shit ton of phone books can stop bullets, but if you stack enough shit in a row it can stop bullets. Do the same for bricks, steel, ceramic, etc and it does the same thing.
Its a cool concept but entirely unpractical.
I think the funniest thing mythbusters did was testing shooting through a scope and into the other snipers eye.
They didn't use match ammo or test elevation and expected it to go through.
When it comes to military rounds they're either very similar or 54R has a slight advantage. Obviously factory loads and handloads are more "powerful" considering .30-06 has more powder capacity.
If you saw the episode, and I remember it correctly when retelling it, the Mythbusters didn't just slap a fuckton of phone books onto a car and shoot at it, I'm pretty sure they did penetration testing at a range before covering a van in paper and driving it in the middle of an abandoned mine, then shooting at it.
Mother of god.
Yes, it's a 5.7x28 AR upper that takes P90 mags.
Getting a CZ 455 American package as my first gun!!
5500 NOK/$950 for the rifle itself and following parts:
22LR barrel (threaded)
One 22LR mag, one 17HMR/22WMR mag
Disassembly tool, barrel change tool and magwell block (For the shorter .22LR mags)
I'll also get an A-Tec CMM4 Rimfire silencer for the .22LR barrel. A friend's gonna help me find a scope and mount for it. :)
It will be another two-three months before I get it though, as I'm starting the hunting proficiency course on Monday, having the final exam sometime mid-March. Then I'll send my application asap and buy it as soon as I get it returned. I think I'll go buy the silencer sometime next week so I can experiment with DuraCoat. I get the rimfire silencers at my local sporting store for just around 60 bucks, so I'll most likely buy two so I can use the modules from the second one on my first one (making a total of 8 modules).
Absolutely nobody produces bullets or casings
You'd have to make them yourself
Got my TLR2 mounted.
Pretty awesome, a really powerful light from such a small piece of hardware. Plus the laser. Not surprised though, the price and name really says it all.
All i need to do is change the sights on it and I'll have a good duty weapon.
Props on the Leatherman. I have an original PST that I still carry daily.
HTC Inspire phone
Gerber folding knife
Handful of change (to throw at roaming bands of hobos)
Para 1911 (for when 9mm isn't enough)
M1 carbine trunk gun (for those rare times when .45 isn't enough)
M1A (for when I need to defend myself beyond 50 yds)
870 12ga (for defense against flying orange discs moving away from me)
Well... I am surprised you don't lug around a couple grenades.
oh and the Strela for those annoying news helis
In reply to the AR-57...
I want it so badly now...
I think its pretty clever how they dump the casings out of the now-unused magwell.
so i was watching a video of some guy shooting a M249 and i saw that when he put in a new belt and cocked the gun, he pulls it back, then pushes it forward, and i noticed that almost all belt fed guns do that. versus just pulling it back and releasing it, the spring making the bolt feed the next round. why do they do that?
So how do you fellows feel about shoulder holsters?
Ohhh pushing it back in, I dunno, they trust their own hands more than the spring would be my guess.
heres a video of what im talking about @0:20
insurgents are crazy when it comes to mounting guns
taken by someone who was actually there
i wonder if it can fire while on the move
By the way, my new Mosin Nagant, is a 1938 Tula with matching numbers and an excellent bore.
And this is an achievement for me because I live in Victoria, Australia where Mosins in stores are literally non-existent.
Still $375 god fucking damnit.
I already know what my next rifle will be, No.4 or SMLE Lee Enfield.
