Re: New AR15 Carbine - I can't decide

As an Australian, I've got no idea.
As a member of ZS, I've seen a million of these type of threads and you're going to be told to save up a bit longer and buy a reputable brand. Stick to the basics to start with. Avoid designer materials like the carbon fibre, particularly in your only AR.

Re: Role Playing- what type of gun would you choose?

Beretta 92.
-most ammo, shoot the most things
-semi auto + 2 magazines with largest capacity, shoot things the fastest
-lightest firearm, move the fastest, fatigue less, there's no reason it wouldn't be my hip at all time

It'll either be a howa 1500 (.223) or a ...

Re: Rebuilding - Where do you start? (Project ARK)

If people think of a simple log cabin, most would say they could make one. That is the final step in a long series of processes. At the very least, to make this cabin you will need a saw or an axe. Which is in turn a combination of fashioned wood and shaped/sharpened metal. Making a functional axe o...

Re: Criticise my current and desired firearms

None that I'm aware of other than incendiary/tracer.

I don't reload, .308 and .22LR are my major calibres and they're just as cheap to get factory ammo for. Also I have sweet fuck all time.

When I have my own place they'll be stored there. There is some confusion in Australia, we're having a debate on another forum right now actually about firearms and defence. While it's illegal to own a firearm on a target/hunting licence for the purpose of self defence, it's not illegal to use a fir...

Re: Criticise my current and desired firearms

I don't store any of my guns home, this is due to living with my family and my mother is anti-gun. I keep them at a secured storage place and have 24hour access to them whenever I want. The place is 40minutes in bad traffic, 25min in no traffic, I could store them at home if I didn't have the mum-ag...

Handgun purchases are controlled through my club, due to my work and uni commitments I struggle to attend centrefire competitions, making it hard to convince them to let me buy one.

Re: Criticise my current and desired firearms

Well every one of your current firearms are fat, ugly, bowlegged, and probably have low self esteem. So criticism out of the way, I think you look fairly squared away with you current battery. It is hard for me to suggest anything without knowing exactly what roles you might need a new firearm to f...

Re: Yourself as a weapon?

Sparring isn't fighting. You're right, and the only way to learn how to survive a fire in your home is to set your house on fire. I didn't say sparring isn't useful. For example, sparring is good for testing new techniques, general fitness and getting used to aggressive physical contact. What is no...
