The K98 is a fearsome rifle. Very accurate out to even 1000 yds with a heavy .323 diameter projectile. Maybe not as good for urban street fighting as a shorter barrel modern semi-auto with 30 round magazines, but under the right circumstances I'd be very happy to be carrying a K98.

Could still function pretty well as a sniper rifle (although technology has moved well past it even for that use.) But it's not suited for modern fire and maneuver warfare.

Remember, boys and girls, the brain is the weapon, everything else is tools.

Find those tools that you wield best or from all that are available, then master, and own them.




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Exactly!

Look what 35,000 motivated 7th century murder cult radicals did against supposedly the best military on the globe. Now they just have better tools.

What’s that old saying; you fight the war with what you got!


That's a good one, "Jesus shoes." And great eyes, too.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
