[QUOTE=LordLoss;36338011]I thought this would be the best place to ask for opinions, I'm thinking of writing a thread with a series of extremely detailed posts on a few WW2 topics, as in, stuff the average "i played cod2 and CoH" guys wouldn't know about but would still hopefully find interesting. First topic would be US armour and TD doctrine/the Panther Crisis. Good idea or will it be lost under a wave of "lol tiger is da bestest tank"?[/QUOTE] you can expect a few mindless idiots to come into the thread and talk directly out of their asses, just like mr. "full auto deagle" guy we had in this thread a while back. Go for it.
[QUOTE=beanhead;36337793]Does anyone know what the world record for fastest muzzleload reload is?[/QUOTE] There may not be an official record for it, and unless you set a standard gun to reload like a Brown Bess some guns can be reloaded faster than others just by virtue of their design or be reloaded with different methods such as pellets instead of loose powder or even paper cartridges instead of a measure. Takes me around 30-40 seconds to reload my big Matchlock, never timed myself with it and I don't like to do sustained firing with it due to the possibility of the charge going off prematurely while reloading in such a big bore. But someone using a Wheellock or any of the different Flint mechanisms would get a better reload speed than me because I have to remove my Match each time I go to reload.

And also from handling them they do feel front heavy. Other than that, they seem to be really good.[/QUOTE] Yeah I heard about that, the trigger is new to me though but it can't be worse than my Martini Henry, that thing has about a 20 pound trigger pull that downright hurts when it finally lets go and between my Garand and my Matchlock which weighs more than 26 pounds and is also more than a little front heavy I'm used to heavy guns, the SR-556 would probably feel like a toy in comparison.
Went shooting first with my class today, then with my Homeguard Youth leader. Was a fun day overall. My Contender has some issues, like locking and the rear keeps becoming unstable. But when I shot the AG-3 (Norwegian G-3) I had no issues with it. It's a delicious rifle to shoot.
i don't even see the point of a contender
I don't see the point of a de-activated nugget. :v: (please don't turn this argument)
[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;36342625]i don't even see the point of a contender[/QUOTE] While I'd personally never buy one, the idea of the Contender is neat. Quick swaps of barrels and you've got yourself a different firearm. Let the man have his fun.

[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;36342625]i don't even see the point of a contender[/QUOTE] You really don't understand the point behind owning a firearm for the sake of having it as a hobby, you know, to have fun.
Guns like a Contender are like Go-Karts, useless for most things but lots of fun to play around with if that's what you enjoy.

[QUOTE=Campin Carl;36343006]I don't see the point of a de-activated nugget. :v: (please don't turn this argument)[/QUOTE] OMG ICE BURN!!!!!!!!!!!!! what's the point of a single-shot firearm that uses a horrible system for reloading, is made out of low quality metal by a MURRICA STRONG company and is just painful to look at?

Alright, I think I have finalized my decision. I am going to get a [url=http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=F3CZ82]CZ-82[/url] with 5 boxes of [url=http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=ABB918FMJ]ammo[/url]. [editline]16th June 2012[/editline] Also, I have a bore snake for 9x19, will that work for 9x18?
[QUOTE=cardfan212;36359639] Also, I have a bore snake for 9x19, will that work for 9x18?[/QUOTE] I'm pretty sure the boresnake will work just fine. It seems the primary point of concern is diameter, which matches in this case.
[url=http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=F1DSASA58S21&name=DSA+SA58+FAL+.308+21%22+Rifle&groupid=11]DSA FAL[/url] Anyone heard of these guys (DSA, not Aim Surplus)? I've been dying for a FAL since the day I first laid eyes on one, and I can finally afford one now.
An ad for a local sporting goods store called the 10/22 a shotgun.

I've seen nothing bad said against them and the quality of the stuff I've seen in person is pretty impressive. Can't go wrong with them.

They used to be Belgium licensed and operated up until the late 80s, but they're still making semi-automatic Falafels.
[QUOTE=Gubbinz96;36361511]DSA is awesome. I've seen nothing bad said against them and the quality of the stuff I've seen in person is pretty impressive. Can't go wrong with them.[/QUOTE] I've heard they are kinda dicks about service and repair. But I'd still love to have a FAL.
[QUOTE=Zillamaster55;36363208]They have a factory down here in IL actually. They used to be Belgium licensed and operated up until the late 80s, but they're still making semi-automatic Falafels.[/QUOTE] Ah. I've seen a few Imbel FALs around but I've passed on them every time. Most of the time they have OD furniture (which is fine, but I don't care for it on a FAL) and they just seem shoddy to me. Add to that, reviews don't paint them too favorably either.

Yay, a friend of mine invited me to shoot his .38 lever action sometime this week :v: We are going to use some other toys as well and I'll take some pictures.
