    >the gun is bigger so its for big guys
    >i want to be a big guy, therefore i must like battle rifles

    the reason people don't buy FALs or G3s is because they are expensive and generally kind of shit, especially compared to AR-10s.

    also because 308 is 60cpr

      I wish this were true. More like $1 per round these days for cheap target ammo.

        .308 is for weak ass pussy boys that want to larp as big men cause their dicks are small. Real men use .30-06, now thats a big chad round.

    yes, somehow every country with their own arms procurement ran out of "real men" and that's why they all adopted 5.56 or 5.45 or 5.8

    People have been getting weaker with each generation that passes. The increase of microplastics present on the water we wrink, the food we eat, combined with pesticides is decreasing the amount of testosterone the average male produces and today's generation is far less physically active than people who grew up in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, which in turns leads to them being weaker.

          Neither do T levels.
          People have been getting physically stronger until recently due to superior nutrition and simple calories. Now we've plateaued on that level and doomers like yourself are taking the declines in related fields and interpreting them as an objective total decline across all stats.

              Physical health and physical performance metrics have risen since then, now it's plateauing. T levels OTOH have declined since then.
              Do fewer drugs. Try some basic math instead or at least a google search.

                so we're on the same page that t levels have declined, and physical activity has declined. what am i misunderstanding here? i'd rather have an Audie Murphy on my team than a 6'2 lanklet born in 2003 who eats from a microwave and has erectile dysfunction entering his 20s.

        Hell even the elite soldiers likely would. I recall reading Band of Brothers and the maximum amount of pushups one could be scored for then is 40. That's barely passing in the Navy.

      Black person, People have been getting fatter and taller for generations, Wtf you talking about

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        while I am not sure on this. I believe that fatter males who can be considered unfit: (Avoiding strenuous work, refusing to go outside, and not watching what they eat are included in what leads to this but are not entirely at fault.) Their estrogen levels may be higher than those of others who are more active. We are indirectly being fed hormones, pesticides, and whatever other random chemicals are found in your food and water. I am unsure of what height has to do with this. That does not directly translate into strength. Especially when considering they would need more nutrients to keep up the muscle that is spread out over a larger stature. However, lacking that due to inadequate consumption is not unbelievable and is actually very common today. People today love filling themselves up with synthetic hormones, even unwillingly.

      M2 ball is ballistically analogous to M80 ball. I prefer my .308 Garands because they're a lot cheaper to shoot and good quality ammo is much easier to get.

      Men have grown too weak to carry a real rifle around. .30-06 is for weak wristed people that want to cosplay as their grandpa. Now 50 BMG, thats a mans round. Can you call yourself a battle rifle when you can't deal with everything on the battlefield? This thing destroys men, vehicles and helicopters. Go cry somewhere if you are too weak to carry this bad boy around.

    In old times, being a homosexual was equal to asking to be beaten.
    In order to survive, one had to be tough, not feminine. These old manlovers desired not to be weak or look like one.
    They were projecting masculine image and were carrying big bore guns.

    Now homosexualry is protected by law and era of brutal men is gone. And with that battle rifles.
