Guns Mini-Tutorial: More Long Gun Stuff by PhiTuS Guns Mini-Tutorial: More Long Gun Stuff by PhiTuS
Taking a break from animating to show you more shit about guns.


Sidenote: The ones labeled "sure" are either unconventional or debatable, but I think are still correct and up to you if you want to hold it that way.

Umm, first "wrong" grip is actually right. At least in air rifle shooting. I was an NJROTC cadet last year, and was part of the school air rifle team (got transferred to a new school without an NJROTC program). When standing or kneeling we used our hands as platforms. As for second "wrong," it isn't that bad. If a bomb goes off and you are thrown to the ground and insurgents are coming towards you from the left (or the right if you're left handed), one could, in theory, "hug" their SMG, AR, or shotgun and provide rapid suppressive fire.

I always thought that holding the magazine gave you more stability.
I see a lot of pictures where some people from the Special Forces hold their weapons that way.

Also it's easier to draw.

Probably 'cause they face their bodies more forward ('cause the weak point of body armor is the sides of the body) and they keep their weapon in tight, making holding the rifle by the magwell more comfortable.

Every single time I see a video of African military / militant dudes shooting at stuff with rifles, they're ALWAYS doing it like the second buttstock example.

Aw really it must have been a thrill.. Next guns you should go for using at the range is shot guns and assault rifles.
Either shoot a 12 gauge or a 410. As for Assault rifle use the AK-47

It was like power in my hands.

I wanna shoot every kind of gun there is. I'd probably have to go to another state for that though, hah

The range I was that allowed subsonic rounds only.

You felt in charge and that feeling kicks ass.

States like Alaska, Texas, and other types of states that I mainly know of.

In Alaska unlike any places within the U.S you can go to village and fire any type of guns.... except RPGs lol

>Not putting the stock up against your face so you can see down the sights with one eye.

As for weapons that have more recoil than your body can safely handle, would you put the stock under your arm or hip fire?

There exist .50 caliber rifles designed to be fired from the shoulder in a prone position (or in a sitting position with the rifle resting on something)

If a gun is too strong for a person, then having a stock would be pointless. Hip firing a gun that strong would also be pointless.

Even when it loads 30mm HE shells, tearing your arms asunder when fired?

The only 30mm rifle that exists is in a manga, used by a vampire chick.

However, there DO exist 20mm anti-tank rifle that you fire from a prone position from the shoulder, just like the .50 cal.

Building a 30mm ATR and lab testing it with someone who would be considered super human probably isn't the best way to design a rifle.

Might be able to use power armor with it.

Just so you know, anti-tank rifles have been obsolete since the Korean War, due to the development of anti-tank missile launchers.

Also part of the joke.

"You made a rifle that shoots mini tank shells to kill tanks. For infantry. Who can't even use it. How do you get paid?"
'We also made slime girls.'
"How?"
'We don't know.'

Pft, don't be ridiculous. That is way too big for a handheld rifle.

That caliber only exists for a autocannon that's mounted on something like an A-10 Thunderbolt.

I think
this is a very useful thing
which will be very useful to many

here only
I do not understand
is it possible to
hold the automatic clip?
(front grip)

I always thought
that when fired
this will lead to seizure (jamming) clips

For turning quickly, aiming up should also be "correct", right? Well as long as there are not people up there I guess.

also swinging it wide, you can add the bulletpoint that it makes it easier for people to disarm you. :D


On the last picture consider quickly editing it so it sweeps left to right, so there is sequential flow. As long as the gun is pointing away from the center it should look better.

PhiTuS Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012  Professional Filmographer
No. Aiming up is actually even more slower and awkward (believe me, I tried doing that with my airsoft m4 just now). Also consider that bullets that shoot up (in a roofless environment) will eventually fall and possibly hit someone you don't want to get hit. Better to put a hole in the ground.

One rule that professional gunmen follow is to always keep a certain distance in order to avoid scenarios such as getting disarmed (which is explained in another gun tutorial I did)

I'm not too concerned about the last image.

Eh, pistols might be an exception of pointing up, because of weapon size.(and weight)

Of course you want to keep a distance from your target, but I was thinking of stuff like clearing rooms swat team style. You end up getting close regardless of what you are doing, and the limitation of openings to be attacked during that is handy.

With shooting up, I don't feel to bad about pointing up if you have any sort of trigger discipline.(thank you spell check)

Because with all of this, I am totally a expert now that I have shot a real pistol at a shooting range. =p
