556 doggos were sacrificed to the murder /k/ube for this holy relic of a weapon.

DEFINITION OF A RIFLE
>The term “rifle” means a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed cartridge to fire only a single projectile through a rifled bore for each single pull of the trigger,

DEFINITION OF A MACHINEGUN - NATIONAL FIREARMS ACT OF 1934
>The term “machinegun” means any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the trigger.
>>>SHOOT ... MORE THAN ONE SHOT

For this kind of gimmicky thing, I wouldn't assume they are aiming for sub-minute. I'm intrigued by it on principle, an accurate smoothbore is interesting just because it's different, and it's something that piques my curiosity.

It also might actually be a way to make cheap plinking cheaper. Cheap barrels, a simple swaged bullet design, just something to shoot standing within 100 yards or serve as short range self-defense carbine that would be cheap and effective.

Pellets are at a huge disadvantage compared to bullets, they actually start to lose velocity while still in the barrel.

To add more velocity, companies like FX airguns introduced something they call smooth twist barrels where the majority of the barrel is smooth, but it has a bit of rifling at the end to impart stabilization. Pretty much try to reduce friction as much as possible.

Technically, that technology has been around for a long time and shotguns have been using rifled chokes. But, this is the first time in an airgun and it is definitely more useful there than in the world of chemical propellants.

Let me know if you have any other questions, I've been obsessed with big bore airguns as of late.

>Pellets are at a huge disadvantage compared to bullets, they actually start to lose velocity while still in the barrel.
I can see this being the case with compressed air-propelled pellets.

My main question was about accuracy. If you fired a pellet at a supersonic speed with a smoothbore barrel, would the pellet tumble?

My posts as a whole in this thread were mostly directed to using a bullet design that would not need gyroscopic stability in supersonic flight for use in the Franklin Armory Reformation smoothbore rifle. Their "30 cents over regular ammo" thing sounds very expensive for their nerf football bullet, so a handloader or ammunition manufacturer could potentially make a cheap bullet with half decent accuracy for that type of rifle.

I love my RDB, it's everything I've come to expect from Kel-Tec products, but unfortunately, that includes their pathological desire to include the worst possible aesthetic in terms of handguard.

HOWEVER! "Lucky Irishman Firearms" has designed a far superior handguard for the RDB, and I'd love to have one, but they're currently out of stock.

Reminds me of range stories, such as one about people shooting a semi-auto Tommy Gun and suddenly it went full-auto after burning through a number of drums. The shooter had good presence of mind and kept hold of the out-of-control Thompson until all the ammo remaining in that 50-round drum was expended. Don't know if it was a mechanical malfunction or an ammo cook-off from a hot breech. When it went haywire, he yelled something along the lines of "Holy moley! My finger's off the trigger but this Devil machine is firing on its own!" Perhaps with responses like "Dude, you're in unlawful possession of an unlicensed machine-gun. The Feds'll send you up the river for thirty years!"

I've heard you can get the same effect with a milsurp SKS if it's not cleaned properly before use. Floating firing pin gets gummed up with Cosmoline and sticks, striking the primer as soon as the round is chambered and keeps going until the mag is empty.

And then there was the magazine article about doing a trigger job on an AK that neglected to mention that their method could make a slamfiring illegal machine gun.

>>107138
The way I understand that is if you knowingly replicate a malfunction causing "machine gun" fire, it's illegal, but if it's a legit accident and you don't keep doing it, you're probably okay.

I've had a slamfire happen with S&B commercial ammo in my SKS, it was clean and the firing pin was perfectly free.

Thankfully it only fired one round that way as I hadn't finished topping it up, so my dogs weren't shot.

Well, I only happened to have three rounds left in the magazine, so I have no idea if it would've continued if there were more, or if it would've done a burst and stopped.

Yeah, it only happened once, and hasn't happened again since its last cleaning, so I should be good for a while.

Reminds me of explaining the advantages of having a tribble...

SPOCK - There is something disquieting about these creatures.
MCCOY - Oh? Don't tell me you've got a feeling, Spock?
SPOCK - Of course not, Doctor. They remind me somewhat of the lilies of the field. They toil not, neither do they spin... but they seem to eat a great deal. I see no practical use for them.
MCCOY - Does everything have to have a practical use for you? They're... nice. They're furry and soft. They make a pleasant sound.
SPOCK - So would an ermine violin, Doctor, but I see no advantage in one.

How do you shoot them? Went to a gun show with my father-in-law yesterday (I thought he was nogunz for life because of a DV misdemeanor conviction years ago. Turns out, he had a misdemeanor for violating the restraining order, but the original DV charge was dropped). We looked at some options for home defense, decided to sleep on it, and he wants to go back today to pick up a pistol grip Mossberg like the one shown here, impressed as he was by its compactness and maneuverability (and price).

I've always been curious. How the fuck do you properly hold these things?

Range report for the Taurus PT-111 G2c

All good. Shoots a little low out of the box, sights are adjustable. Will adjust next go around.

250 rounds down range, no issues.

CCW/EDC/Truck Gun.

The G3 is coming out soon and if they adjust the trigger I will own that as well. Never thought I would own one much less potentially two Taurus pistols.

On a more serious note this weapon has everything that I desire in a concealed carry weapon.

I carry with one in the chamber. Just how I roll. This for me in my mind requires that I must have a manual safety on the weapon as I do not have full control of the weapon while it is holstered.

I know it may be weird to some. Just my requirement.

Bonus, it comes with a trigger safety as well.

12+1 standard, comes with 2 mags.

Very happy with this gun.

The G2c version comes without the Taurus security locking system.

What's the size like? I'm guessing as wide as a glock 19, but shorter barrel and grip?

>What's the size like?
Fits my hand perfectly. Could see this being a little small on the grip for the 6'+ crowd until a more firmed up aftermarket version of the extended pinky rest mag comes out.

Beyond the troughs in the front the entire slide is tapered slightly, the gun is extremely easy to draw.

>On a scale of 1 to staple gun, how's the trigger?
Hmm... What to say here.

First, you can and should totally ride the trigger bar on reset. It is firm and the reset is very short. See the video.

I plan on dumping a lot of rounds through this gun to get it down.

You may also hear about it being "gritty". That was resolved on the g2c by removing the Taurus security locking system. There was not grit for me, only a firm bar and short reset. There is an aftermarket for non C models that disengages the key safety and removes the grit as well. I don't own the earlier models so I do not have any issues here.

That plus at least $45 for the Anderson lower is just a few bucks shy of a dedicated Glock mag lower. But if you intend on removing the adapter and swapping the buffer to use a standard 5.56 or whatever upper than I can see the benefit.

Right - It's that I had an Anderson lower laying around already, since I bought it when I was sure Hillary was gonna be prez. If I had to start from scratch, definitely get a dedicated lower.

I actually should 3d print my own fletching jig. I own a 3d printer. It would make my life a lot easier to not have to rely upon the range owner's equipment to make my own arrows, which I will need to do by myself eventually.

Also, range report. Today was my first day shooting these bamboo arrows and comparing them against my shoot from yesterday with my carbon arrows.

My carbon arrows weren't able to hold a group at 10m, and I rarely actually hit the target at all.

My bamboo arrows held a group at 20m on a standard 18m traditional archery 40cm ring target. Zero misses.

It's really bizarre. Everything on paper says that my carbon arrows should be better. Everything. Spine charts say my bamboo arrows are too lightly spined. They flex unevenly depending on how you flex them! Yet, they fly straight in flight, and my carbon arrows wobble about as if they are *under spined*.

I don't get it.

The .22 Magnum is a good varminting round and our nation's morgues has proved it's a killer. I like how many .22 LR single-action revolvers can swap out their cylinders for .22 Magnum cylinders, transforming a target/plinker to a rat-blaster. My Ruger New Model Single-Six is a good example of this. Terrible capacity (6 compared to 30), slow to reload, but accurate, reliable and will shoot all brands if you can stick 'em in the cylinder.

Now I have heard over the years that the Kel-Tek PMR-30 has feeding problems (perhaps this is mainly from not working well with certain ammo brands or loads) to reports of the cast metal breach blowing apart and disassembly pins breaking. If these are actually recurring problems, then that is a deal-breaker for me. Anyone have practical experience with it?

Apparently, this was fixed. I've read that the original PMR30 had a bunch or problems, it either F2F, F2E or some other problem. But, Kel-Tec heard the complaints and fixed it in later builds of the PMR30.
Now, my problem is that I have no idea how to tell the difference between the old PMR30 and a new one.

Blames Obama for not being elected to 3rd term.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-12/cerberus-s-remington-will-cede-control-to-lenders-in-bankruptcy
>But on Monday Remington Outdoor Co., which traces its history back to 1816, said it would file for bankruptcy protection, succumbing to a slump in business worsened by, of all things, a president who has steadfastly supported Americans’ right to bear arms.

>The bankruptcy is a blow to the private-equity mogul Stephen Feinberg, who has been a prominent supporter of President Donald Trump. Feinberg’s firm, Cerberus Capital Management, acquired Remington in 2007 and subsequently saddled it with almost $1 billion in debt. The Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing will let Remington stay in business while it works out a plan to turn around the company and pay its creditors.

>While the Remington name is unlikely to disappear, the company’s travails highlight the shifting fortunes of the firearms industry and its fraught position in the nation’s economic and political life. The company’s fortunes took a hit after the election of Donald Trump, a self-proclaimed “true friend” of the gun industry, because Hillary Clinton’s defeat erased fears among gun enthusiasts about losing access to weapons. Sales plummeted, and retailers stopped re-ordering as they found themselves stuffed with unsold inventory.

I kinda like some Remie when they aren't total pieces of shit so this is a little sad especially if the brand dies completely.

But its their own damn fault, same with Colt (though for different reasons, Colt didn't take advantage of the panic buying while Remington invested too heavily in it to my understanding). They knew that Obama gravy train wouldn't last forever and didn't take steps to take the hit without falling to the pavement wheezing and upchucking their lunch.

I kinda wonder if Remington and other companies ramped up production further in anticipation of a Hillary win.

The same problems facing many gun companies with slow sales and still angry customers burned from the panic buying price gouging seems to be what graphic card sellers and manufacturers are dealing with right now with the buttcoin crypto currency craze, graphics card prices going through the roof, inventory being sold faster then it can be replaced, and sites like Newegg price gouging the fuck out of people. Some like Nvidia are trying to mitigate the damage while others are diving headlong into the boom seeming to not care there will eventually be a bust.

For me personally I was kinda wanting to buy one of those Remington Phaser looking pistols but noped the fuck out when I heard about the problems the gun had. Just spent the money on something else, some slightly deformed looking .22 revolver and a 360 I still have yet to play.

i'd suggest that a government subsidy for citizen weapons purchases, but republicoons don't like welfare (or poor ppl getting guns) so i came up with this more clever idea of like a gunz 401k, i think that could be sold to capitalist republicaniggers because it would allow them to use their power to funnel cash to their wall street backers as dictated by the natural order of capitalism. so if you had job you could preselect a percentage of it which you could only spend on guns and there would be no income tax collected on that portion. to the GOP it would look like a tax cut, they'd be all for it. plus only ppl with jobs would benefit another plus.
of course it never happen because the nra's thinks it's task it to collect as much megabux as possible and then give out infinite free rim jobs and get nothing out of it. worst lobbyists ever
