Ausfag /fit/izen here.
I've finished my degree and I am about to start training to be in the Police.
I have never seen a gun that was not hanging off a copper's belt, so I have no idea about guns apart from what Battlefield 3 has taught me.
I am very left-eye dominant, and by that I mean my right eye is pretty much fucked. Do I have to learn to shoot left handed or can I shoot with my preferred right hand?
I will be undergoing extensive firearms training, involving sidearms, rifles, automatic weapons and grenade launchers.

Red Orchestra 2 thread: Australian edition.
>Red Orchestra 2 is a realistic first-person shooter. Guns behave realistically, with bullet drop and spin taken into account. The game also takes away with elements of a traditional HUD like an ammo counter, forcing players to remember, or manually check, the approximate number of rounds that are left in the gun's magazine. When reloading a weapon, the character checks the weight of the new magazine and determines if it is heavy (full or close to full) or light (empty or close to empty). The game's first person cover system allows players to hide behind all objects in the world to avoid gunfire. While in cover players can peek out to take more accurate shots or fire blindly. However the shape, size and composition of the object changes its effectiveness at protecting the player. Smaller objects may not cover the player's entire body and some may not stop bullets. Health does not regenerate over time or by use of medical equipment, but non fatal wounds must still be bandaged so no more health is lost through blood loss.
I play on the Aussie/NZ Custom server, which runs a special game mode that removes the zoom on the rifles when using iron sights and eliminates bandaging of vital hits. Think of it as super-realism. There may be a few custom maps that you have to download, but they are relatively small and that shouldn't discourage you.
We usually play until 11PM in good numbers.

ITT: We post what the media headlines and profiles of us would be if we were caught "potentially preparing for a mass shooting" I changed it.
"Today, a terrible tragedy was stopped before it could happen. A man was convicted of making coniving remarks on his facebook page about a potential threat, and police arrested him before he could go on a terroristic rampage. He owned an SKS, a communist, evil rifle with extended clips and dangerous potential.
The user was known to browse the evil, anti semeitic and disgusting website 4chan, and was known to play violent video games such as ARMA 2. He was also very interested in the history and technology of warfare, with essays about communism and Stalin found on his hard drive. He would frequently discuss weapons systems and likely had a plot to get his hands on nuclear weapons. This man was clearly a dangerous menace to society waiting to snap, with his dangerous, anti social and out of the ordinary hobbies.

Q. What is the difference between semi-automatic hunting rifles and semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons?
A. Sporting rifles and assault weapons are two distinct classes of firearms. While semi-automatic hunting rifles are designed to be fired from the shoulder and depend upon the accuracy of a precisely aimed projectile to kill an animal, semi-automatic assault weapons are designed to kill as many people quickly, as would be needed in combat.
Opponents of banning assault weapons argue that these military-style weapons only “look” scary. Assault weapons look scary and are scary because they are equipped with combat hardware. Combat features like high-capacity ammunition magazines, pistol grips, folding stocks, and bayonets, which are not found on sporting guns, are designed specifically to facilitate the killing of human beings in battle.
