User avatar #10952 - Zarke (12/29/2014) [-]
I spent a lot of time thinking this one through. The action would be bulky as hell (and probably crazy stiff), but if you removed the gas systems (to prevent the action from cycling with each shot) and recoil springs (so you could actually operate the thing with any semblance of comfort) from most gas-operated belt-fed machine guns (instead of some blowback/recoil-operated action), you'd pretty much just have a belt-fed straight-pull bolt-action rifle. From there, it's just a matter of using a lever to actuate the bolt instead of whatever charging mechanism is currently in place. It'd be a lot of pointless engineering, but it could be done.

But that leads to a slippery slope, where once you slide to the bottom you've bought yourself an M2 machine gun and a small artillery piece. In my opinion, every self-defense decision you make is a compromise of sorts. You think of your practical "worst case" scenario and plan for that. Of course there's something worse that you'd be under-prepared for, but eventually you draw a line and call it "good enough".

So don't encourage training/use to get comfortable with more effecting weapons? 9mm does kill but so does .17hmr. the only reason why 9mm is used alot is because you can't carry long gun ammo in a handgun. But since he is not carrying it(which is a whole different story) why not go for the best tool?

The type of arthritic granny who'd step down to a 9mm? I dunno.

And I wouldn't call 9mm a "bare minimum". I see it get a lot of heat, but it's undeniable that 9mm saves peoples' lives all the time. It's very often pulled out of corpses. People even trust their lives with .380ACP, which is a significant step down from that. Sure, it's far from ideal, but it's still a chunk of lead traveling fast enough to go in one end of a body and out the other.

And barrel length does have an impact on muzzle energy. Maybe not a whole lot after 6" or so, but it will squeeze the last bit of juice out of the powder.

I don't disagree with your evaluation of pistol-caliber carbines compared to SBRs (though the legal issues with them are a needless hassle), but they have every right to "limit" themselves to something they feel comfortable using within the confines of their own home. Whatever concern they've got, whether it's "over-penetration" or "blinding muzzle flash" or "osteoporosis-geriatric-I'm-a-weak-suckybaby recoil tolerance", they should only use what they feel comfortable with.

someones life in Self Defense = use bear minimum cuz he likes 9mm.......what?


also wtf barrel length? are you retarded? there is almost no benefit to have a longer barrel with a pistol cartridge, the only reason why MP5 type weapons were made was to be small and quick to use. Now that we have SBRs its pointless. On that note the person does not need to limit themselves in there own home.

If you can find one, the Mossberg ATR is also a decent bolt-action rifle, and many of them come with Nightrain optics in the box. They sell them in the states at Academy for $299, which is damn cheap for a reliable, scoped, .308.

So like, is it a board game that you buy and play in person? bcuz from some stories I've read on 4chan about games, like 1 in particular where a guy was on a ship plotting his plan from what sounded like years while all the other party members treated him like shit bcuz he was the janitor or something. years are like turns taken or something? like after each player rolls once, thats a year? or is that a circumstance set by the Dm, and are there pieces, like barbs, u move on the board or is it the game where u dress up? This helped me a lot, thanks I appreciate it, but it left me with more questions as well lol, so I understand if you don't wanna reply.
User avatar #51 - newprinny (09/24/2014) [-]
And yes, you buy it and play it in person with a group of friends, or you can play it through online versions of the game, dood.
User avatar #50 - newprinny (09/24/2014) [-]
Time moves at the whim of the DM through the story, but in battles I think each individual turn a player has is like a couple seconds, dood. So outside of battle, the DM can say "the party walked for months to reach the forest of doom and whatever," then get into a battle and every time a player does something, it becomes a play by play battle scene.

#54 - newprinny (09/24/2014) [-]
You're welcome, dood, and it really is fun, you should see if any of your friends are interested in learning to play or something, if you're interested in it yourself, of course.
User avatar #55 - ZakisBak (09/24/2014) [-]
I think I have a couple in mind who might be willing to try it. Thanks
User avatar #57 - Zarke (09/24/2014) [-]
There are "starter kits" available for most popular systems that include a few pre-made characters for PCs and a short campaign for the DM/GM/ST to lead their players through. Do your research, and remember that you get out of it what you put into it. I only recently started my first Werewolf campaign in the World of Darkness system, but it's really compelling, especially with a good group of friends who can paint a good mood.
#56 - newprinny (09/24/2014) [-]
Aight, good luck, and don't be afraid to really get into it, that's when it gets super fun, dood.

You are correct about the Prohibition. I was thinking about the 19th Amendment.

User avatar #8 to #7 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
I'll disagree with that amendment and point that back to the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

As far as I can see, something denying women a political voice (part of Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness) shouldn't be in there anyways, and I'm glad that society has progressed past that point.

User avatar #12 to #11 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
Any gun can go into the wrong hands. Not just "so-called" ARs (which in reality is a scare-term used to describe semi-automatic rifles with scary-looking furniture). Remember that Virginia Tech massacre? Committed with handguns (using 17 10-round magazines at that). Columbine? Shotguns/handguns.

There are millions of these "assault rifles" in the U.S. The vast, vast, VAST majority of which are not used in crime and likely never will be.
User avatar #13 to #12 - vanoreo (02/12/2013) [-]
I for one think we should just get rid of guns all together sometimes...

But that would be incredibly hard, impractical, and guntoting rednecks would get mad.
User avatar #14 to #13 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
Well, that's pretty well impossible and would likely do no good. You'd have to extract everybody from the country, overturn all the soil, search every nook and cranny, and force everybody to walk back in one at a time through metal detectors.

Secondly, not just rednecks. When there's almost a gun for every person in the U.S., you can't generalize such a large number of people as "gun-toting rednecks". People from all walks of life collect, shoot, protect themselves with, hunt with, and compete with firearms. I mean, what about recreational shooters? We aren't harming anybody, and you're arbitrarily robbing us of our hobby because you don't like guns. That goes right against our rights to Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
