>>183391 >>183393 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 (OP) Please relate your insight/experience/input about firearms, Nigel Bongbro
>>183407 I mean it kicks so much that without more experience I couldn't rely on it as a self-defense weapon, cuz it takes too much time to re-aim between shots. "Moderate-high learning curve" or "n0oBs need not apply" would also suffice.
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 >fire away >oh shit the recoil is harder than I remember >the back of the shotgun hits straight into my upper lip >ohshit.png >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.
>>183402 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.

>>204318 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.
>>203973 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.
>>204510 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
>>204550 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.
>>204797 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.
>>204801 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.
>>204907 I always liked that idea as well, but most stories follow unicorns so they don't spend as much time on it. Thematically it puts earth ponies at such a disadvantage against unicorns that most authors just act like they can operate their weapons as well as people. In Heroes the main character is an earth pony so she uses a battle saddle a lot. Up close its always easier just to use a mouth held pistol or to enter melee.
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.
>>205392 >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. >Implying Equestria's caste system is wrong >Implying castes are unhappy for inequality >Implying that less able ponies deserve a rule position … I can smell the stench of Judaism.
>>205778 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".
