What's wrong with this pic?
chicken winging, mag backwards
The grammar is horrible...
that mag has to be fake
the problem with the picture is that it has been posted on here 11ty billion times
Cars make shitty cover too.
i looked at that pic again and it looks like her arm is broken
Cars generally aren't cover, they're concealment.
Not even that great for concealment.
Depends on the situation. Generally speaking I can hide behind a car and be hidden from general view.
We don't always get that solid CMU block wall with AR plate liners in it to hide behind. Take what you can get.
Always cheat....Always win!
Don't know why that was a quote,I was referring to the thread.
Oh yeah of course, not disagreeing with you at all. I'll get behind a curb if thats all that is available.
Like the dept would ever let her take a shot
Engine block is half decent cover.
Thats one of the new ar's that uses the HK reverse mag feed system. If you were worthy of the HK goodness you'd be familliar with it.
The mag looks real long when it's in backwards. Maybe you can get more rounds in it that way.
You mean "If you were a true operator"
Burt would object.
Cars work a lot better as concealment when you actually hide behind them as well.
i think that magazine has a coupler, attached to another magazine. There's no way it would stay in the magazine well if it was inserted backwards. Not to mention, it looks like the exposed magazine is the same or very similiar length of a 30rd magazine outi n the open.
Someone, somewhere, once tried to get a mag in backwards like that...found out that if you rock it in, almost AK-style, it'll wedge in about 1/2"
I wish I knew where I saw that though.
Not it is not. Have you ever shot at a car? NO part of a vehicle is cover, unless it is an armored vehicle, in which case, you should be IN it, driving away, giving everyone else the bird.
It'll get in there backwards. We could argue this all day, but either that magazine is in there backwards, or the photo is edited.
Yes actually I have shot at a car. Pistol caliber rounds did not penetrate and pass through the engine block. Neither did 223. I'm sure 308 would of done a better job if we had one. The slugs did a number to the engine block but did not pass. There was actually a pretty scary defection where a 45 hit something and deflected just over somebody's head.
Granted in a gunfight we would all like to be in a freaking tank. That's not going to happen. On the other hand cars are pretty common to find in the real world. If you had a choice of what to use for cover on the car the engine block is the best choice. If you were LEO this is what you would be taught.
I understand this is the internet and we are all experts so lets not make this a huge arguement. I know your guys guns shoot clean through engine blocks ok
