dulapbot: Logged on 2022-05-26 11:03:30 phf: hmm, these blaser rifles look cool. i have that same problem i had with guitars though. i'm left handed, and have to choose between limited left-handed stock of often mildly inferior product, or use righthanded and some technique

Thought it was interesting to mention considering lefty and capacity to chamber in different calibers in <3 min. If I did get into marksmanship it would be for the sake of the art itself.
dulapbot: Logged on 2022-05-26 11:22:10 phf: which ultimately opens up the most important question, whachu got that rifle for
crtdaydreams: from my understanding R8 (and R93) have kits for .22
crtdaydreams: but fwiw my experience with firearms is limited to .22 and shotgun (not sure about caliber)

phf: http://logs.nosuchlabs.com/log/asciilifeform/2022-05-27#1103911 << i accidentally have a bunch of .22s and i've discovered three uses for them: bench shooting at about their effective range or slightly more (150yd) which will give you a practical feeling for the balistics, but for cheap. at a nearby range often see redneck families with custom 22 long rifles (elaborate stock, cheeck riser, some small shop precision barrel&action) just

phf: sitting there for hours cycling rounds at 150-200yd. a kind of thinking man's slot machine
asciilifeform: phf: accidentally ?
phf: the second use is nature walks where you take opportunity shots at small game, or else just plink. kind of hard to do that with a large caliber and not attracting attention. put it on a sling, i like a lever action because lever action 22s cary 15 rounds, or else i have this old winchester single shot bolt action. something about deliberately puting the one round, and then manually arming the striker..
asciilifeform: phf: 'nature walk' in pa not features bear ?
phf: asciilifeform: pa bear is mostly a skittish animal
phf: unlikely to find oneself in an armed standoff with one
phf: i've ran into bear three times so far, that i know off. mostly involves a very spooked bear booking it through the woods in the opposite direction
phf: in alaska i heard from the locals that in spring, when young cubs go on their own, they can fuck your shit up, because they are explicitly looking for trouble. and then there's of course mother&cub situation, but that's /usually/ just a few minutes of being very scared and trying to vacate the line of sight between them asap
phf: as far as accidentally i bought one, when i moved here, and at the same time for my birthday one of the locals gifted me one ("welcome to the appalachia!") and one of my visiting friends bought me one also ("haha you a redneck now"). then there was an inheritance through girl,

phf: last use is the variation on the second, but a pistol or revolver instead of a long rifle. this is of even more dubious legality, best done on game lands, in middle of nowhere state forests or rifle club grounds
phf: otherwise i've noticed that if you just take 22 to the range it become boring fast (tbh for me a range becomes boring fast either way, unless it's some kind of feat of strength > x yd etc). i've noticed friends that bring their 22 rifles usually take forever to first work the action, which implies that they barely ever shoot them.
asciilifeform not doubts that hunt on horseback is moar interesting than making holes in paper
phf: milspec tactical holes in paper!
