What causes the trend? If these third worlders were told they can't come here instead of being told they are gonna get free gibs and nice jobs and all they have to do is pretend to be a refugee there would not be this "trend."
>Throw out all the illegal aliens? Estimates in 2015 put the number of unauthorized immigrants in the USA at 11 million
Yep, they have to go back. It's probably more like 20 million too. We can also encourage self deportation by making gibs impossible for immigrants to get, making it impossible to chain migrate all your tios and tias here so they'll want to go to be with their families, and maybe even someday paying people to leave. It would be a lot cheaper in the long run. We can also encourage white immigration and most importantly of all encourage white birth rates. Right now it is stupidly difficult for middle class people to have kids, that has to change. All the anti-family homosexual agenda has to end as well. Lots of things can be done to start shifting America back to the way it is supposed to be.
>> No. 107972 ID: 738b31
OK i gota hear what ideas you have to increase 'white birth rates'and 'White immigration'. Being middle class and having kids is not hard. Fuck, being poor and having kids in this country is not hard. The only thing i can think of that makes having kids a challenge is the terrible state of health care. Pretty much if you aren't a government worker or dirt poor to begin with, your hospital bill will make you dirt poor.

As for white immigration, why would abunch of Europeans want to leave their cush socialist, antigun utopia? IN fact wouldn't that hasten the spread of more liberal politics? Unless you are advocating the express subsidizing of new immigrants from awesome places like Czech-Republic, i doubt these new citizens would support many of your political stances.

Also they all think we are retards because Trump is even more laughable in public speaking than Bush was.
>> No. 107973 ID: 3ec302
How many people do you know that have decided to postpone having kids because of the costs? How many that decided to just live "child-free?" How many guys do you know that don't want to get married at all because they are terrified of divorce courts? How many girls do you know that have been memed into spending their prime child bearing years working a desk job instead? How many guys do you know that are full on incels? Many issues are plaguing our people right now and driving our birth rates into the toilet. A lot of it is stuff pushed by the same people driving third world immigration.

We need a culture shift in the schools and media away from all the anti-family propaganda. We need to allow freedom of association again so parents don't have to move to horribly expensive neighborhoods and send their kids to private school to escape diversity. One thing Trump should do right away is both straight up student loan forgiveness so people trapped right now can get their lives started and then completely end all federal student loans to discourage people from becoming debt slaves while universities use their money to subsidize programs in worthless leftist ideologies.
>> No. 107974 ID: 738b31
The people I know that have chosen not to have kids did so not for financial reasons, but because they didn't want to have kids. It was not a money thing but a shift in how they would live their life they didn't want to make. People like having self determination over their life and kids reduce that to an extent.
This would also apply to why young women may chose to get an advanced education and career instead of pumping out a few kids. If they have kids young their choices are a) stay home and raise them till they are school age or b) pay someone else to raise them till they are school age or c) have grandparents provide child care.
If they get an education and a career first they have a greater ability to determine their own future and are not dependent on another person's earnings.
As for Incels- fuck man i got no clue how to correct them since most of their problems seem to be lack of exercise and learning how to chill when talking to females. I chock most of their short comings, and the trend to not want kids, to a form of self-centeredness that precludes them from doing anything they think would be an inconvenience to their time

How ever. I think there is a point we can all agree on. Education in this country is fucked up. Most of your arguments center around people being financially insecure in their early 20s thus pushing back anything that requires commitment like kids. I see two problems-
1. Higher education is seen as mandatory for even shitty jobs
2. 12 years of public school doesn't give you any fucking life skills

I agree we should have a debt forgiveness program. The past decade of graduates have been screwed. I believe we should shift cultural norms to promote trade work, job skills, and understanding of the legal and civil systems that people have to deal with. It's fucked up, but you could take most high school grads, legal god damn adults, put them out on their own, and they would struggle to function in life because no one sat them down and explained how compound interest works in relation to their long term finances. Or how to properly interact with law enforcement and a basic understanding of their rights. Or how to fill out a basic tax form.
In short if the public school system did a good job, higher education would be an option rather than a necessity. Ideally it would also make higher ed more diverse in terms of trade programs that would give student better paying jobs for less investment.

I don't have much faith in debt relief from republicans, but I also don't hear them talking much about it. The only good thing I've seen so far is the Tax Free Death and Disability Discharge. Other proposals, on their own, seem counter productive, but would be admissible if a b

I shoot revolvers with my left thumb across my right hand. Makes it very easy to cock the hammer without changing the grip. I see so many people try to use thumbs forward for a revolver, and they constantly break their grip to cock the hammer, especially for single actions.

I've been taught to never break the grip of the shooting hand when shooting revolver, and to always use the offhand's thumb to sock the hammer if you want to shoot single action.

The inside is ribbed. I don't know what the telltale signs of MIM are, but that kinda looks like Direct Metal Laser Sintering to me.
>> No. 107968 ID: bbee29
>laser sintering
I'll have to disagree. That's not exactly a part with complicated internal geometry so there's a lot of reasons why laser sintering would not be ideal.

Looks more like MIM where they made the part simple to mold out by making it solid (no internal features), then made the internal features with a drilling operation or whatever needed after. From the smaller deeper hole, looks very clearly like a drill hole, then there's a larger diameter and less deep internal shoulder, done with either a counterbore or just an endmill (possibly another drill, hard to judge angle of shoulder from here, it could be a 135 degree tip or something). As it's an internal feature that isn't normally visible so they'd just feed harder to reduce cycle time so would likely leave marks like that.

Still, it's hard to say for sure. It's possible that it's sintering, I just think it's unlikely.

Other than the cost of ammunition and having to use 6.8 magazines instead of 5.56 magazines, is there any benefit to using 5.56 over .224 Valkyrie at any range? I have to assume with a 6.5" twist barrel to stabilize the heavier 90 grain pills, Valkyrie would be a better terminal performer from every barrel length and at every range to go along with the much ballyhoo'd external ballistics it boasts. Is the lower magazine capacity the only other downside?

If the trend in 5.56 ARs over the last decade or so has been toward longer, heavier bullets for greater terminal effectiveness in shorter barrels, wouldn't a Valkyrie be better at that too?

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

There's a machine gun thread a while ago but I felt like I should start a specific thread for firearms fed by belts.

Mostly because of this MG34 that followed me home.

Since this really is the first rifle of this type that I've had to play with, I'm a little out of my element. This is a TNW semi-auto only 7.92x57 and I wouldn't mind learning everything I can about this particular piece.

Waiting on getting my 34 from TNW on a brand new build. Hopefully it works out of the box, but I've seen enough issues with other people's that probably won't be the case.

In my case I intend on immediately converting it to shoot .308 because 8mm ain't cheap anymore. Involved in the process is modifying the feed tray to accept a spacer for .308, a new barrel (slimmer profile for the recoil operation as .308 has less oomph than 8mm), a narrower booster cone, and a top cover feed pawl modification that is longer which puts pressure on the shorter .308 round (which can be used with 8mm too).

Will report back as to how the .308 conversion goes once I get it all set up.

Wasn't concerned about surface finish, just dimensions. It's not really visible from anywhere once inside the muzzle assembly so making it pretty was not a priority. Picture related, if you're worried about the surface finish while looking at this I'm afraid the autism is in terminal phase. Luckily if you are looking at it like this, you won't have to wait long for the euthanasia.

>double stamped 4
I'm terrible at stamping shit ffffffffff

>8mm isn't cheap
I'm kinda torn. The 8mm is glorious and original, also from what I've heard, it'll be more reliable once my TNW is running well. But then there's the cheap .308 Win stuff. If it's reliable, shooting more would be fun, but I doubt it would run properly without a lot of work. I think that for now I'll stick to 8mm until all my current minor issues are sorted out despite the seductive cheapness of 308.

I know a guy with a legitimate full giggle MG34 (he's allowed to have it, horsecops please go and stay go), and he said we could compare MGs and I could measure/take notes on the original parts.
>> No. 107907 ID: faf462
It's fucking cool that you got an MG34. I dig the slomo.

Buuuutt... just can't do semi-auto conversions of machine guns. Like a semi auto KRISS Vector, PS90, 1919, or Suomi. All would be amazing in full auto, but pretty pointless in semi.

I did shoot a semi auto MG42 some guy built out of a parts kit. I was amazed at how much it recoiled.
>> No. 107908 ID: bbee29
I agree with you. If it wasn't for my unfortunate location, I don't think I'd have a belt-fed either, unless I was able to scrape up enough pennies for a full auto one.

That said, I disagree with your thoughts on the Kriss Vector. That gun is retarded in any configuration, and is by design a failed abortion that only has a completely flawed concept to begin with and space-pew-pew aesthetics to ride on. I can forever hear the tortured screaming of it's machine spirit, begging "kill me, it hurts to live".

From what I see on FNForums, a "6 bolt" receiver to barrel trunion mounting system, probably among other differences.

> if they put any work in hand-fitting and lapping the bolt to the barrel extension as you should on any precision rifle

I don't have anything to base this on, but I would not expect any hand fitting from a company like FN on a product like this. Probably tighter QC standards, but I don't think they'd pull out the Belgian gnomes for this one.

Versus the "4 bolt" mounting. This pic is from my 16, but the barrel on the 17 mounts up the same way.

And by the way, it does return to zero pretty well. Which I was slightly disappointed with since my aimpoint is cranked 3/4 the way to the right. That's right, it returns to zero, way off to one side.

I guess in that sense the SCAR's gas system sorta represents the twin turbo 4-cylinder of the Ford Focus RS wherein it squeezes as much out of its input as possible but is very highly engineered and necessarily high-precision. Whereas the system I'm most familiar with is direct impingement or other more crude, higher volume or vented piston systems which is basically like an LS1 that is basically old, crude technology at its most refined that you can basically tune to do whatever you want. But it's always going to be less efficient for its output than the new hotness.

But maybe that's a dumb comparison.

Nice work dude. The hardest thing is when you miss, you want to shoot quickly to make up for it, but then end up missing more.

Also checked out your Mini-14 video and gas mask video. The mini-14's I've shot have been pieces of shit.

>> No. 107805 ID: 11c82e
I shoot in Norway, most competitors are pudgy weekend warriors who are only a punisher skull and a condor PC away from being your average threeper, this was a training camp that the National IPSC Rifle team puts on every year where the "plebs" get to ask them anything they want to know about IPSC rifle shooting and the national team will tell you how to do it and put up courses on practicing it. It's a really cool event, and I'm really grateful for being able to recieve world class ipsc instructions for a weekend for a laughable price (I think this years event cost like $45?)

The blonde is one of the top norwegian female IPSC rifle shooters I think, didn't have anything to do with her, so don't remember.
I used to date a woman that certainly alone would help recruitment for IPSC among boys if we had stayed together long enough for me to get some pics with her and a rifle during a hot enough summer :v

I try to record as much as I can of my shooting and publicize it to attract more people into shooting and help grow the sport. It would be cool if my channel grew to a respectable level, but right now I'm just trying to show off the cool shooting sports we have in Europe despite the political climate and belief that Europe has no guns.

I was thinking about how video games often balance guns, and I got to thinking about the cartridges themselves. I found this, but it's too much damn information to digest.

I was thinking more generally. Are pistol cartridges slower than rifle cartridges? If so, are the bell curves between pistol/rifle dramatic, or is there a bit of overlap? Again, speaking generally, is it fair to say that pistols have shorter effective ranges than other weapons (low velocity, thus range)?

  This is an old US Army training video on ballistics that might help shed some light on powder burn rate, pressure curve, barrel length, etc. A lot of it isn't relevant to your question but it helps explain why cartridges on the "pistol" end of the spectrum use smaller volumes of faster burning powder and shorter barrels and and cartridges on the "rifle" end of the spectrum use larger volumes of slower burning powder and longer barrels.
