I need a good pack with about 40-50litres of space to use hitchhiking/freighthopping
Ideally it has
Long, tall design
Simple
Preferably no zippers
Molle straps are nice
Id rather it wasnt camouflage, but a dull color like green or brown
Lightweight-ish
Quality. Surplus is generally what i would call good quality
I have a low budget of like 70$, so buying a used one is an option

Hello, /k/.

I'm in the process of building myself a cabin innawoods, and setting up a reasonably sustainable living space for myself. Right now, I still have a regular apartment and job, but I intend to eventually go full hermit in my cabin and avoid heading into town if at all possible.

What I need are incredibly durable and easy to strip/troubleshoot firearms. I don't care how pretty they are, and I'm willing to trade 'comfort' for 'indestructible'.

Effectively, I want some guns that I can bring with me in the woods and that will easily last 10-15 years if need be without me heading into town (obviously with proper maintenance).

I'm not really interested in bringing more than 3 or 4 guns with me either, ideally

  • a pistol/revolver
  • a shotgun
  • a hunting rifle
  • a semi-auto rifle

Bonus points for cheap/plentiful ammo. I intend to get a handpress for reloads but I'm not looking to set up a bench and station or anything.

>along with a minimum 100 yard distance
Thanks for the input.
Been seeing some things about distance but I'm ignorant. What's the deal? Is it better because the round tumbles at that distance or something? What would happen up close with the same caliber? I mean, I'm not wanting to hunt bear for food or sport... I just want something for the rare instance in which the bear might be hungry and want to hunt me.
The land is pretty densely wooded and I wouldn't ave much chance at a 100 yd shot anyway. Even if I did, at 100 yards, I'd probably rather not engage... was thinking more about it displaying aggressive behavior at a closer range.

I was referring to the 100 yard distance when dealing with large game like grizzlies. They can charge that distance in a few seconds. Then rip you apart in half of that. Not to mention they can take a .308 round to the skull and keep coming at you, hence my recommendation of a rifle chambered in .338 or larger. Although they are usually found up northwest in places like Montana, Alaska and western Canada.

A .22lr and a 12g shotgun would be handy to have. Pretty fucking common as far as ammo goes. Now as far as a pistol goes, 9mm would be handy for the same reasons. I was sorting imagining some surivalist stuff though. Very easy to reload 12g shotgun cartridges and the same with 9mm rounds. It's also very easy to buy cheap bird shot rounds and then make your own buckshot and reload them.

.22 cal pellet rifle - for small game, quiet, simple, reliable

Single shot shotgun - birdshot, buckshot, slugs and you are ready to tackle anything from squirrels to grizzly bears

.357 magnum revolver with 6 inch barrel and a full size 9mm semi auto

SKS - The god of SHTF/bugout rifles. Simpler than an AK or AR15 ever will be. More accurate and more powerful than an AK and can be used to take game including deer. If you can get your hands on an SKS-M - the ones that take AK mags then you will be Lord of the forest.

I would never use a single shot 12ga on a brown bear unless I literally had no choice. That is a terrible idea. A 12ga slug wouldn't even penetrate enough to kill it if you hit it anywhere except for the head.

Squad hits a nice balance. The conversations on the mic chat can be pretty funny and the squads leaders vary from robust to incredibly incompetent so you can have fun rolling the dice on what squad you join every time.

TBH I kinda wish someone would make an updated clone of counterstrike 1.6. The graphics weren't high end but it didn't matter because the gameplay was superb enough that you could play it all night and not care what the graphics really looked like. Also the modding community around 1.6 was amazing. Also also steam has ruined cs with all that pseudo-betting crates and loot crap. Fuck all that noise.

Hate to necrobump, but this board is dead anyways.

I ended up getting the M&P Shield in 9mm as my first pistol and absolutely love it, especially how thin it is and ease of takedown. Came with a flush 7 round mag and a slightly extended 8 round mag. Only issues I've had so far is that the slide lock and mag springs are stiff as fuck, making it a bitch to release the lever when the slide is back and tough to insert a loaded mag on a closed slide without a good smack, but they're slowly being broken in. Also got some rubberized talon grips and an extended baseplate for the seven round mag so I can actually get my pinky around it. Pretty satisfied all around.

Yeah, it's the one with the safety. It was the only one they had in stock. Doesn't bother me though as I won't be carrying it outside the house except for the range since I don't have my CCP yet. It's legal to open carry in my state, but I'd prefer it if people not know I'm armed.

>Also, if anyone here has a concealed carry permit:
Say you are carrying your CCW in your vehicle and you are pulled over by an officer. When they run your tags, I assume they can see if you are permitted to conceal carry (correct me if I'm wrong), and if so, can they search you on the spot if they feel like they have probable cause (paranoid behavior, red eyes, dank smell, etc)? Are you obligated to tell them you are carrying, or are they automatically informed by dispatch? My friend brought this up and it's got me worried even though I never carry drugs and firearms on me at the same time. Basically, once you get a CCP, does that in turn lead to a higher chance of getting searched when pulled over? I live in NC for the record.

often one of the first questions an officer asks is if there are any weapons in the vehicle. bad idea to lie about that. one good bit of advice i have heard is when you initially hand them your identification, also at the same time give them your gun permit and keep both hands on the wheel and wait for their instruction. at least thats what i would do

Made this baton in wood shop. Couldn't make bats, told the teacher it was a table leg. The black duct tape is to stop blades from sliding down and cutting me hand. I also made a best once out of one of those 3 mag mills pouches by sewing shoulder straps and a belt to it to make a rack vest. When I played airsoft, a fake aimpoint comp2 stopped working, so I drew a reticle on. Actually kinda liked it more. I also once saw a jihadist wearing armor made from sheet metal.

My father and I are having a heated argument. He says a woman he knows survived a point blank blast from a 10 gauge shotgun to her lower back. I say her abdomen would have been vaporized, no chance of survival. I told him he had been lied to or misheard details of the story but he thinks it's legitimate.

So, help me out. For the sake of argument and possible variables, assume the following scenario:

>Middle aged female victim with 10g shotgun aimed anywhere in the square area between the bottom of her shoulder blades and the top of her buttocks
>Gunman anywhere from point blank, muzzle-on-back to 10 feet away
>Any kind of possible ammo, from buckshot to a slug to a steak knife jammed down the barrel.

Who is right? Would she have been blown to bits or could she have survived?

She'd be paralyzed but not torn in half. She'd almost certainly die from such a wound however. Even if she was shot on an operating table. Usually, at distances less than 10 feet, no matter what you shoot someone with, a shotgun is going to not disperse the projectiles and it will basically just be a 3/4" slug of lead until it hits something. So basically just rip a 1.5-2" wide hole into flesh and have the temporary wound channel added. At point blank, the gases from the blast would probably cause significant flesh damage as well.

Realistically, it would be almost certain death but it isn't impossible to survive. Given a strike to the spine would cause so many other complications not even related to bleeding out or destroyed organs, the chances of survival are very slim. But nothing is going to be vaporized but some blood that exits with the projectile.

I'm arguing with my friend whether a tank can have wheels or not and what
makes a tank a tank.

He's saying in order for a tank to be a tank it has to have a tracked chassis as the main determining factor.

I say it just determines on what its role is. As in a bulky armored vehicle.

I suppose this also goes into the argument of what differentiates a tank from an APC.

Also if a tank is simply determined by treads what about future prototype tanks that only have legs?

Tanks clearly can have more than just treads in my opinion but I suppose i'll let you guys argue about it.

Seconding the toughness of the hilux. You seen what they did to them on topgear only to have them go still?

>1000 meters with irons sights.

Yeah, the bullet will easily go that far. You won't hit anything smaller than a strip mall though.

Always loved how my SKS and mosin sights can be adjusted up to 1000 and 2000 meters, respectively. The mosin can definitely reach out and touch someone at that distance, but I've never seen more than an 800m shot with irons. With the SKS the trajectory at 1000m would basically look like a rainbow at that distance. I've never seen someone shoot one past 600m but I'm sure it could be done with the right hold over.

Those sights are for volley fire. Not practically used really ever but stuck there because they didn't know how modern war would be fought. Kind of like how we had 4 foot bayonets of cartridge chambered long arms. Sword fighting died out when muskets went away.

I'm not an expert on them but I had one. Rather it was a family gun; stolen from our farm, sadly. I imagine it's now sawed down to some shitty one shot pistol thing covered I electrical tape.

The value depends on where it's been and if it's in original nick. Seems obvious but they were brought here by I assume soldiers returning home, who sporterized them. Cutting the wood back off the barrel at the front. They're not especially valuable though it seems. Not here anyway
