Who told him?
Seriously though, went to a gun range last week and tried out a few new platforms. I've done some 9mm shooting before, but I really liked the 1911 and the S&W sub-compact (basically an AR with a pistol-calibur platform). I'm not the most savvy on terms, but give me a minute. In any case, I liked the Assault Pistol setup, and think it would be great as a .45 (kinda like a modern WW2 Thompson, except sub-auto).
Also the .308 bolt action was nice, and the 5.56 AR was good too, except the foregrip was too far forward imo.
Lesson learned; you gotta shoot shit to learn/know about shooting shit. I fired a .357 (what I THOUGHT was my dream gun) and realized it handles like a bitch. Maybe one day where I can be certain, but until I'm familiar enough with shooting, that's outside my skillset.>>183389
Please relate your insight/experience/input about firearms,
That's not a pony.
What exactly do you mean by "handles like a bitch"?
.45ACP is better than 9mm for self defence
Change my mind
No arguments there.
Oh, I have a gun related story, so listen up to my wise advice:
>my sister buys a dvd of twilight in a thrift shop to roast it
>afterwards she wants it disposed of
>goes to me and asks if I would shoot it
>it would be my pleasure
>dad overhears this, he suggests me use his 12 gauge
>what the hell, why not.
>head outside, position the dvd with the case on a dirtmound
>about 30ft away, bust out the sks rifle
>aim and bust out 30 rounds into the dvd
>feelin breddy gud
>time to finish with the 12 gauge
>get closer to the dvd that has holes in it
>load up the shotty, 5 rounds will do
>want some accuracy, aim the shotgun sights to eye level
>shotty doesn't have a butt stock
>its been years since I shot a shotgun so I am nervious
>oh shit the recoil is harder than I remember
>the back of the shotgun hits straight into my upper lip
>I reach up to my upper lip, blood is seeping down my hands
>welp, there goes my teeth
>unload the shotgun and head straight to the bathroom
>terrified of what horrid sight my mangled lip might behold
>blood is everywhere but my front teeth are still there
>God be praised
>teeth hurt like hell though
>for a few days I have to eat with the sides of my mouth like a raccoon
>lip heals up in no time but I still have a scar on where it hit
>if I held the shotgun any closer to my face, I could have lost my front teeth
So if your shotgun doesn't have a butt stock, don't aim it up with your face or if you do, hold that shit far away as possible and keep a firm grip. That or put a butt stock on it, probably better. Took me awhile to build up the courage to shot a shotgun again but I did it with the knowledge I learned and things when alot better.
Try loading .38 Specials in it to cut your teeth on, if you get the chance. It won't kick quite as hard as using full on .357 Magnum rounds.>tfw you got used to firing .44 Magnum before even trying .357 Magnum
I'll consider it, but it was a revolver and I'm not keen on the reload. I wanna try the rhino, but beyond that I think automatics are more to my liking.>>183410
Also, the sky is blue
Guns are cool and libtards have no right to erode away the fundamental human right to have it, or anything else you can use to defend yourself.
Our "Compromises" with the gunphobic "Gun Control" NPCs should have never happened, because they'll always want to conquer more of our territory. If we truly have to compromise with them, it should begin and end with "No anti-sniper guns, rocket launchers, grenade revolvers, or other weapons at this level without a license, regular shooters are fine".>>183391>>183393
Sorry, I was phoneposting and this was the only pic I had with a gun.
Even if it begins and ends at that, you are still giving them an inch and then they will try take a mile.
Also have a Raifu while I look for other pones with guns
Hitler approves of this raifu
Am I being punked or did Singapore really just name its gun Ultimax?
No, that's been a thing for a while. I remember first learning about its existence when Far Cry 3 came out and it was one of the LMGs in the game.
>>184121>jew ak ripoff
Also mine and template because poster is faggot>inb4 nohooves
Didn't you post that on /k/ a while back?
Why are liberals so obsessed with mocking shitty neon green "Mall Ninja" swords?
Is this their way of attacking survivalist doomsday prepper and weapon ownership culture?
What do you faggots think of the Maryland inncodent?
What Maryland incident?
its more of a personal fashion statement Anon. People shittalked my chart too, but that doesnt really matter. This is about You and not other peoples judgements.
It's got a rifled barrels
Bumping the /k/ thread.
I like guns.
/k/ thread deserves bump
Good luck finding a serious fictional weapon dumber than Battle Saddles.
Ask me why.
>>203858>twili has a juzi
>>203858>implying Octavia wouldn't use a nugget because W O O D>>203867
that's an MP7, not an Uzi. Bonbon's gun is an Uzi.
Don't forget flutters, she's rolling a jewzi too
And which one is on the bottom left with a galil?
>>203858>Time Turner has the assault rifle from the Halo series
WHAT FUCKING MARYLAND INCIDENT?
What happened? What did I miss?
I guess is an FN SCAR from the US Navy SEALs, dunno what variant is.
It's most likely a SCAR-L (you can tell by the magazine)
Oh look, its another autist sperging about how a game involving pastel ponies with sentience, speech, and alternately magic or wings, isn't realistic>2nd 1/4
FFS, this guy just keeps going doesn't he?>3rd 1/4
Didn't read lol>4th 1/4
What's this about now?T> Don't read, its stupid
Did the pretty pictures make you go haha?
no ustop fagging up threads with unrelated shit
B A T T L E S A D D L E S
I know, right? Battle Saddles are the stupidest fictional weapon I've ever seen in a "Serious" story.
You'd think duct taping shotguns to the side of a pony and using a mouth trigger mechanism would sound like a cool idea, sure, until you realize how retarded it would be.
A pony can't reload like that. A pony can't aim like that without turning his whole fucking body. A pony can't shoot at a series of targets in a row without turning like a fucking tank or pivoting on one hoof like some kind of anatomically impossible breakdancer horse.
I was inspired by this youtuber I saw called Shadiversity, who did some videos on what weapons different historical creatures should use.
Just to clarify the answer to your question(s) fluttershy is holding a Mac variant, not a jewzi (not too sure which but probably a mac 10) and i'm not too sure who that is at bottom left, but that's an FN SCAR, not an IWI Goylil.
Cmon man, you're actually allowed guns, learn them.
Oh you're right, my bad. I should stop focusing on the 7-odd guns I do have and worry about 50+ guns that I'd never give a second thought to if not for larpers on the internet.
lol I know they are dumb but they're cool
Don't autism yourself to death nigel
Ok, time for some info dump or didn't read lol if you legitimately don't care
The best way to tell the difference between grip magwell sub machine guns is the size of the gun and the ergonomics of the body and stock. For example, the mistake of flutters holding an uzi (see fig. 5). Now, the Mac 10 and Micro Uzi look similar, but the easiest way to tell is the ergonomics of the body leading from behind the grip to the back of the weapon. On the Mac 10, it's a 90 degree angle since all mac variants are essentially boxes that bullets come out of, but on the Micro Uzi (see fig. 3) there is a (roughly) 45 degree angle leading to the back of the gun. Or with your original mistake of Twilight holding an Uzi, you can tell by the design of the stock. On a Mini Uzi (see fig. 2), the stock goes to the side so it's definitely not that. But the Uzi Carbine (see fig. 1) does look a lot similar to the MP7 which is what twilight is actually holding. However, the Uzi Carbine has the distinct 3 point under folding stock that gives it it's recognisable underbody triangle (visible on fig. 1 & 4) that is not on the MP7 due to it's stock collapsing directly into the gun.>tl;dr: I'm an autist who want others to be autists because im salty about the government stealing my rights
You'd make it 500x cooler and 2000x less stupid by turning the battle saddles into turret mounts that autoaim and autofire for you. Or a system of miniguns and magic laser crystals built into a power armour suit, ready to unleash death wherever the user is facing.
Or, you know, turn the Battle Saddles into hats and use magic on the hats so the kickback won't fuck you up. That'd be right deadly, that would.
I'm bumping this thread to ask if you liked the pictures I used as examples of what I was talking about. Which was your favourite?
Thank you! I updated this pic recently to include another idea I had.
Imagine it… A pony wearing a beer-drinking helmet, except the cans are full of health potion.
Potions in general are great, too. Imagine a squad of six ponies downing a bunch of small mass-produced single-dose stat-boosting potions in tiny bottles that came in a big package along with their Ammo and MRE shipments. Let's say each mass-produced potion JUST increases their stats to "The Captain America of Earth Ponies/Pegasi" level instead of Twilight-level, that's still a massive fighting force. Slow and unwieldly Battle Saddles wouldn't be so bad when you've got low-tier super speed.
Ok, you really got to be fucking with us by now, just look at that pone…
The potions by itself could do for an amazing game mechanic tho.
I've never read Fallout Equestria, but I kind of like the idea of a story based on the cumbersome battle mechanics of the original battle saddles. It would be like fighting with old time muskets or pistols, where you're fighting with a weapon that's laboriously complicated to use, but your opponent would be disadvantaged by the same things you are.
Two earth pones spend an entire battle scene turning around in circles trying to aim. The object is to try and get a bead on your opponent while at the same time not allowing them to get a bead on you, and pulling the trigger at the exact right moment. It would be the ultimate form of gentlepony combat.
Aside from the unapologetic autism radiating from the illustrations in that graphic, the ideas in there aren't that bad.
It's like dogfighting, but 10 times less interesting because it's not in the sky
I'm just gonna throw out that Flurescant Orange/Yellow coats and sniping don't mix
Now that! That is a good design for a pony gun!
Either this or large triggers to be operated by hooves.
Or just grow hands. Hands also are a solution but makes ponies less ponesque, so we have to imagine how a sentient species with an evolved brain to build things without hands can operate.
Unicorns have magic, magic can be used as a weapon. At some point of History, pegasus and earth ponies had to rivalize and invent weapons to have a chance and not be dominated by unicorns.
Good, there're magical weapons in Equestria at War.
The Hearts of Iron 4 mod full of Communist pandering and OCs?
In Fallout Equestria, Applejack invented guns and Twilight Sparkle invented laser rifles.
It's basically an excuse to bring guns in.
If guns were ever invented in Equestria, it would probably be due to an accident involving car-racing Earth Ponies. Or Pegasi.
Would shit-flier Pegasi or Earth Ponies be more likely to become nascar drivers?
Anyway, I can't see Pinkie Pie saying "I want a portable party cannon I can fire with one hoof".
