Experience is the process through which conscious organisms perceive the world around them. Experiences can be accompanied by active awareness on the part of the person having the experience, although they need not be. Experience is the primary subject of various subfields of philosophy, including the philosophy of perception, the philosophy of mind, and phenomenology.
Several different senses of the word "experience" should be distinguished from one another. In the sense of the word under discussion here, "experience" means something along the lines of "perception", "sensation", or "observation". In this sense of the word, knowledge gained from experience is called "empirical knowledge" or "a posteriori knowledge". This can include descriptive knowledge (e.g. finding out that certain things are true based on sensory experience), procedural knowledge (e.g. learning how to perform a particular task based on sensory experience), or knowledge by acquaintance (e.g. familiarity with certain people, places, or objects based on direct exposure to them).
In ordinary language, the word "experience" may instead sometimes refer to one's level of competence or expertise, either in general or confined to a particular subject. In this sense of the word, "experience" generally refers to know-how rather than descriptive knowledge (or in other words, on-the-job training rather than book-learning). This article is not about "experience" in this sense, but is instead about the immediate perception of events.
I'm looking to add weapon mounted lights to a -pair of new upper builds. These uppers are light weight low drag design philosophy that also place the balance point on my lowers at center or close to center of the mag well. This is something I try to do so the balance of the rifle does not change...
I noticed the featherweight variant uses a screw on endcap which could mean a tube extension has a chance of being installed. While the standard model 12 uses the double screw and locking pin system which seems too hard to modify and would require cutting it and re welding?
If you were...
Have a chance to buy some IMR7977 in bulk quantity. Seller uses it for his big magnums, says its a temp-insensitive powder with other applications in the .270 Win realm.
I'm not much of a big magnum guy, looking for any experience with that powder toward lesser applications. Thanks.
I'm looking at making a batch... But out od all the how-tos and videos... No one is sizing granules
Is it FF? FFF? FFFF?
They're just shoving through random screens!
Am I over thinking this?
Ive mostly observed FF for long guns, FFF for pistols and FFFF for priming flintlocks.
Found next to nothing discussed here on NWF.
Lot of 6.5 CM Q FIX hype on youtube. Lot of money for a very light rifle, but fair if it brings V-good things to the table.
Shootable in .308? Seems to be a lot of used rifles for sale, given the tiny market. Not usually a good sign on a $3200...
Curious if anyone has used a bufferless foxtrot Mike upper or AR. Mainly looking at reliability/longevity and recoil impulse compared to regular ARs. Let me know if you have one or shot one please. Thx!
As far as I can tell so far it uses dual recoil springs?
I've fired a couple hundred on these 250gn PC cast bullets (4gn of unique) (seated deeper once I figured out they wouldn't feed). out of my AR45...
Well I was having feeding problems today and had quite the odd firing (still rang steel).
Extractor no where to be found. No more of these in the...
My experience has been poor.
When I complained that my current acquisition of the threaded barrel MR920 was difficult to operate the slide lock, they told me the slide stops/releases are all identical. Refused help.
Look at the picture.
Anyone have experience with G4Gguns?
They have almost too good to be true deals on certain things, but I’ve heard mixed reviews.
Some say theyre good to go. Others say won’t provide tracking info, others say they had their CC info stolen and their phone number was sold to a spam companies (I...
Those who have purchased a AR or AK or similar rifle in Thurston county in 2023, how long was your waiting period? As I understand it the wait is either however long it takes them to approve it, or if no action is taken, you can pick it up on the 10th day at a time later than it was submitted...
Found myself in the Tualitin Gun Room today and asked to see an antique Winchester rifle. Given it was over 120yrs old, but on sale, I asked them to inspect the bore. Manager offered me a bore light, but the action was electronically banded shut. I asked them to remove the lock for my inspection...
I’m looking at buying a “Pedal Commander” for my 19’ F350 diesel to improve the throttle response. All current manufacturers retard the throttle pedal as they are a drive by wire design across the board. They are close to $300 and I just wanted to get some input from actual users before buying...
Last Sunday myself and two good friends made a trip to a local range. Rifles and pistols. I've loaded for rifles but not handguns. I have a S&W 9MM EZ that I've put 300/400 flawless rounds through.
After rifle shooting I shot the EZ. On the first mag the 5th round blew the pistol up, totally...
I'm looking at options to mount a Holosun red dot on my Mossberg 590, and found the Monstrum mount. It is very inexpensive, almost too much so. I wanted to check and see if anyone here has had experience with their products. Experience with their 590 red dot mount would be great, but I want...
My experience using the Aquila and Servicios Aventuras small pistol primers did not go well. Hand priming no problem. The issue was using them on a Hornady Progressive press. The Aguila do not seat properly, too high. The other ones seem to not operate the primer slide correctly. Too much...
Hoping someone has experience with this Cabela’s duck blind and could possibly post pictures, and tell me how the dog door functions. Can’t seem to find any videos on it. Thanks.
