Hello fellow /k/unts. As a BP /k/opper,I'm looking for a good pair of summer combat/hiking boots. I dont care if they are milsurp or not as long as they keep my feet dry from the rain and mud. They have to be black,less than 200 USD/yuropoors,comfortable to wear, have a high cut and be suitable for Eastern European Mountain terrain. So far I was thinking to get a pair of Nike SF Boots.

Alright /k/iggers

Whats the best bolt action rifle?

I see a lot talk about bolt actions as one of the perfect guns, and with reason too

Nugget, SMLE, Kar98, Remington, ArcticWarfare, CheyTac, etc

In you opinion, whats the best?

Also

If you could make the perfect bolt action, what would it be?

Would it have a fixed mag? If it had a mag, would it be a rock in, or a straight? Would it have a stripperclip guide, or would it not even need one? Would you have rails for optics & mall-ninja shit? Would it have a bayonet or would it have bayonet? You have no choice in having a bayonet or not

My opinion?

I don't really have one

I do really like bolt actions for how simple they are, so I don't like how most can't be taken down & totally stripped easily, no tools is the best in guns

I like the SMLE, I wish the stocks were longer though, fucking stubby brit arms, I know chickenwings were popular, but god damn, gimme an inch

AR-15 Full Auto Conversion

According to this guide, it looks like all I'd have to do to get a full auto M16 would be to mill the receiver to fit the auto sear and buy an M16 parts pack. Do you need an AFT license to buy an M16 parts back, since it's supposed to be a replacement for registered M16 lower parts?

If I were to actually create this, I would only use it in case of actual anarchy caused by a civil war, world war 3, grid-down caused by EMP, etc. Gun crimes with full-auto weapons are almost non-existent in the US, and I would imagine that there are thousands of unregistered full-auto weapons made after May 1986 in civilian hands in the US. It's just that the owners of those weapons are smart enough to keep them secret and away from criminals.

Missouri to pass a bill to lift all Federal Gun Control in the state

http://archive.is/4oUZ7

>Missouri may have just made the most monumental step towards freedom and individual liberty since the signing of the Bill of Rights. In an upcoming vote by Missouri’s state senate, the state is expected to pass a bill that would nullify ALL Federal gun laws and regulations, and make enforcement of those laws by federal officers within the State of Missouri a criminal offense. Republicans control both U.S. Senate seats and more than two-thirds of the seats in both the Missouri House and Senate.

>Like it’s predecessor, SB613, Bill SB367 and it’s companion, House Bill HB786, would prevent all state agencies and their employees from enforcing any federal law that infringes the Second Amendment in any way, including gun registrations, fees, fines, licenses and bans. Originally authored in 2014, a former version of the bill was also passed, but vetoed by then Missouri Governor Jay Nixon.

All federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations, whether past, present, or future, which infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States I and Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution shall be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, shall be specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”

>For added measure, SB367’s authors went into great detail on what federal laws will be “considered null and void and of no effect.”

<(a) Any tax, levy, fee, or stamp imposed on firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition not common to all other goods and services which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

<(b) Any registering or tracking of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

<(c) Any registering or tracking of the owners of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition which might reasonably be expected to create a chilling effect on the purchase or ownership of those items by law-abiding citizens;

<(d) Any act forbidding the possession, ownership, or use or transfer of a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition by law-abiding citizens; and

<(e) Any act ordering the confiscation of firearms, firearm accessories, or ammunition from law-abiding citizens

DIY Energy (EMP) /k/

I've been looking around online at DIY EMP type weapons. My use would be noise control from all the dope heads in my neighborhood blasting music all night from their cars. All the info I gathered is these devices use a lot of power and are bulky. Most are short range less than 10 feet at best. Most use old parts that are nearly 20 years old. My idea would be to make a modular system that could affect a target 50 to 100 feet away and fit in the back of a small truck or SUV. With new tech, would it be possible to do this?

Defying China, U.S. to sell new tanks, anti-aircraft missiles to Taiwan in $2B deal

By Carlo Muñoz - The Washington Times - Friday, June 7, 2019

>In a deal that has drawn the anger of mainland China, Taiwan has signed a multibillion-dollar weapons deal with the Trump administration for hundreds of new tanks, rockets and surface-to-air missiles, defense officials in Taipei confirmed this week.

>The Taiwan’s Ministry of National Defense said the nation’s military will receive 100 M1A1 Abrams battle tanks, 1,240 BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles, 409 FGM-148 Javelin anti-tank missiles and 250 surface-to-air Stinger missiles in the estimated $2 billion arms package.

>The new Abrams tanks, built by U.S. weapons maker General Dynamics, will replace Taiwan’s aging American-made M60A3 battle tanks and the Taiwanese-manufactured M48H CM11 tank, defense officials in Taipei said. The publication Jane’s Defence first reported details of the arms deal.

>The deal falls in line with defense Taiwan Relation Act, which legally binds the United States to provide arms and material to support the Taiwanese military. The announcement also comes amid rising tensions between Taipei and Beijing.

>But Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said that China, which views Taiwan as a renegade province, firmly opposes the arms deal.

>“We urge the U.S. to fully understand the high sensitivity and serious harm of the issue of arms sales to Taiwan and abide by the one-China principle,” Mr. Geng told reporters in a Beijing briefing Thursday.

US under Trump takes step towards recognizing Taiwan as a country

Recent trends suggest a change in Taiwan's official status may be on the horizon

By Duncan DeAeth, Taiwan News, Staff Writer

2019/06/08 13:52

>TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Over the past several months, and especially the last few weeks, it appears that the United States under the Trump administration is taking a much clearer stance on relations with Taiwan.

>Specifically, the Indo-Pacific Strategy Report published by the Department of Defense (DoD) on June 1, along with a few other notable events, and the recently reported US$2.6 billion dollar weapon’s deal to provide Taiwan with new tanks and missiles, suggests that the Trump administration is taking its obligation to ensure Taiwan’s defensive capabilities seriously.

[…]

>Beyond referring to Taiwan as a “country” with no mention of the “Republic of China,” the report also emphasizes that the U.S. military is committed to upholding the provisions of the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), and states that a “strong, prosperous, and democratic Taiwan” is in the interests of the United States.

Canada Gun Advice?

Up north citizens are not allowed to purchase guns for the purpose of self defence or wield guns in self-defence, as best I understand it.

Luckily, target sport with pistols is coincidentally an attractive hobby which many of us Canadians feel compelled to pursue for the purpose of improving our hand-eye coordination for better video game skills.

Plus, the ability to use a rifle would also be useful to provide food to live on, should we ever happen upon a forest full of dear whom we may legally hunt once having procured a license to lawfully do so.

I would like some advice on the various ways we can responsible pursue these hobbies. For example, I know I need a CFSC pass to get a PAL and a CFRSC to get an RPAL.

Before investing in these (because the clock ticks) it seems like I should first buy a gun safe and any other accessories I would need to store a firearm, and have enough money saved up to purchase a firearm and some ammo, plus enough to cover membership fees, before I actually expect to get the PAL, so I can make the more use of it at the nearest range.

I am wondering, would it be better while I'm working on my CFSC to just buy an air rifle that I don't need a license for and begin training at a range with that? Then I could say in my application "I enjoy air rifle target shooting but gunpowder rifles look interesting too so I thought I would try them next".

Anyone have some advice on starting out with air guns (no license needed) and how to build good safety habits on storing/transporting? I want to get in the habit of locking up even an air gun (even if it is less lethal) to carry over to when I would need to get a transportation permit from police to visit a firing range with a gunpowder weapon.

Also do you guys ever meet guys to go hunting with at firing ranges? Or how do you strike up conversations at work or in bars to make hunting friends?

Baseball bat vs. gun

Has anyone heard of this before?

>According to witnesses and those who investigated the case, just a few minutes prior, Officer Duggan was taking a right hand turn from Winter Street onto Lowell St. A car being driven by William Rodriguez of Lowell nearly hit him, continuing toward Broadway and finally came to a stop at a red light at the next corner.

>Officer Tom Duggan, Sr. was on his way to court that afternoon and in civilian clothes. He was driving his own car when he pulled up behind Rodriguez and his girlfriend Doris Ortiz of Lawrence.

>Witnesses said Duggan got out of his car, identified himself as a police officer as he approached them, but before he could say anything more, Ortiz jumped out of the passengers side of the car and advanced on him, hitting and pushing him in the middle of Lowell Street.

>Within seconds, Rodriguez also jumped out of the car brandishing a metal softball bat. He advanced on Officer Duggan slapping the bat in his hand over and over.

>Because it was broad daylight, and on a busy downtown street where kids were walking home from school, and pedestrians were walking close by, Officer Duggan pulled out his gun and ordered Rodriguez to put down the bat while he backed up into a the vacant lot.

>Duggan matched every advancing step by the perpetrators with a step back, luring them away from from innocent bystanders and into the vacant lot in case he had to shoot his weapon.

>But as Duggan reached the edge of the lot, Ortiz jumped on him, grabbed at the gun, and held his hands, just long enough for Rodriguez to beat him in the head with the bat. As Rodriguez came down with the first blow to Duggan’s head, he fired his weapon, but the bullet only grazed the neck of Ortiz while Rodriguez began beating him repeatedly. Police would later learn that Duggan tried to fire again but his gun had jammed.

>Witnesses said that Rodriguez continued beating him even after he fell to the ground and the two killers eventually fled the scene leaving Duggan in the dirt to die.

>As Officer Duggan was rushed to Lawrence General Hospital and while doctors were frantically working to save his life, Rodriguez pulled into the parking lot to drop off his girlfriend to get treatment for her superficial gun shot wound. Rodriguez never made it out of the parking lot as police cornered him and took him into custody, covered in Duggan’s blood.

>At the end, the two were acquitted of murder on a technicality.

Best antique gun to buy?

So I live in the US and the antique laws here are basically any gun that is a muzzleloader or any gun that uses a type of cartridge that is no longer manufactured (at least not in the US). The cutoff year is 1898.

Pic related is a Bergmann No. 5/1897. It uses 7.8mm Bergmann, which is no longer in production. Also, is there any way I could go up to a gunsmithing company and have them make a replica of this gun + the ammunition? I don't want to buy a used old one since those could be defective.

So there have been occasions where, officers or even generals didnt take cover. I also heard that there has been at least one attack by the white army in the russian civil war, that was basicly a march towards the red army position by the white army.

They went in marching formation and decoracted uniforms which caused the reds to simply surrender or run away.

Does anybody know something about this? I couldnt find anything myself.

Unpopular Opinions

I'll start.

Some people, not just on imageboards, but behind the counter at gun stores, have some odd preconceptions about proper defensive armament for people other than the baseline user–that is, people other than adult males with normal hand size, grip strength, and upper body strength.

"What the little lady here needs is an airweight Taurus .38 snubby! Look, this one's pink!" Yeah, she'll love it. Until she takes it to the range and fires it once and the recoil jolts the fillings out of her teeth.

Let me preface what I'm about to say by saying that this is a moral pronouncement I'm about to make, rather than a demand for change of laws. I'm speaking in terms of changes I'd like to see in the gun culture and what we do or don't approve of or endorse when we see it. Ready?

There are people out there who choose a self-defense firearm because it's pink, because it weighs almost nothing (unloaded, natch), because it comes with a laser. Yes, almost all of these people are women. You know what? They aren't serious about self-defense and they aren't going to train. They aren't comfortable with or at peace with the idea that they just might find themselves fighting for their lives in a supermarket parking lot and they're not comfortable with the idea of killing. They're not going to build any kind of proficiency, they're not going to go to the range at all, they're not going to train. And when they see that knife in Tyrone's hand, they're going to hesitate, and predators can smell fear. And Tyrone's gonna get himself a brand new gun along with her purse, right after he strangles her with her own stockings and rapes her corpse. This is not a desirable outcome, for a number of reasons, not least of which is that I don't want to be the first one Tyrone shoots with his new toy.

I don't understand this mindset. A gun is not a fucking good luck charm. It's not a magic wand that makes bad people stop what they're doing and go away and leave you alone. It's a tool that you just might have to use to fight for your life. If that happens you're betting your life and the lives of the people around you on your choice of weapon and your proficiency with it. If you aren't comfortable with that, get a rape whistle. Here's one in pink.

I'm just saying. There are people who aren't going to train with it, aren't going to git gud. I'm saying, git gud or don't bother. Here's your rape whistle.

But then I also think that CCW handgun qual courses should require enough proficiency that fatass Fudds who've not touched a handgun since the Navy sixty years ago and their wives who've never seen a gun except on TV might not pass on their first try, or their second, if they don't have their shit squared away and they don't have a good grasp of the fundamentals.

It all comes down to the fact that if you aren't proficient you're going to hesitate, and if you hesitate Tyrone and his homeboys are getting a gun along with your wallet. Did I mention I don't want to be the next one they shoot? I want you to win. I want you to be the one who leaves on his own two feet and not in a body bag.

GIT GUD. Come to the range and shoot. This is Mr. Front Sight, he's your new best friend. Or get a rape whistle. It's up to you.

Can any Russian speaking /K/ommandos help me with info on SVT-40 magazines?

I've read info that an experimental 15/20 round magazine was tested for the AVT-40 as well as a drum mag (pictured). I've also herd of mods where you can convert Lahti-Saloranta M/26 or Bren mags to work in them.

I'm also curious about how the AVT-40s trigger group works, but don't know the legality behind sharing that knowledge. I don't think it'd be bad as SVT to AVT conversion is equivalent to M1 to M2 carbine conversion and it's easy to find documents on those things.

The Trinity of Power

Wealth, influence, and firepower are the three elements of the trinity of power. Wealth ultimately translates into resources, influence translates into the capacity to brainwash people, and firepower translates into the capacity to do damage. Wealth is at the top, because without wealth, influence and firepower are worthless.

You need wealth to survive. Also, you need wealth in the first place to acquire the other two, even if it's not that much, especially in the case of firepower. An M16 only costs about $800, and if a good 5% of the population were armed with M16s, the power dynamics would strongly be in favor of the common person. Democracy doesn't matter that much, since you can buy votes with influence you acquire through wealth, but power dynamics do. A non-democratic government would still be kept in check if the power dynamics favored the common person through, at the very least, firepower.

Were alive, merry fucking christmas

My god, were back.

And its all together too, fantastic. How are you all? Hope you all had an eventful year.

Im very sorry about me not being here, i literally didnt know 8chan (or kun as it is now known) was even alive, when 8ch went i simply stopped using imageboards and spent the time and instead went back to normie stuff like helping NSW gun laws and helping with the shooting ranges.

One of the big changes here in NSW and the biggest shooting club SSAA NSW/Sydney Branch is that the Fudds are slowly leaving and becoming a minority as thanks to so many young people and returning older people (The ones who had to hand back old guns and are still angry about it) coming back and forcing changes here in the state and club is good, not to mention Sydney Branch may have a huge new proper Hunting club attached to it to get the thousands of people who want to try hunting out into the bush, myself and loads of others have since offered to volunteer with the club, not to mention nearly all the proper range officers wanna help out too. Big things happening which is fantastic.

From the looks of things, so far everything seems to be working as well as .pdfs survived the transfer which is a feat itself. i missed you gay cunts, seriously.

Other then that, hows your life going friends?

Virginia General

>Dems want to introduce the most draconian gun laws in the entire US

>Bill would ban not only magazines over 10 rounds, but any firearm that can accept anything over 10 rounds, basically banning literally every firearm with a detachable box-magazine, including handguns, and even tube-fed rifles as well. My SMLE would technically be illegal, and so will my Marlin Model 60

>Also banning any firearm that can accept the following:

<a folding or telescoping stock

<pistol grip

<thumbhole stock

<second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand

<bayonet mount

<grenade/flare launcher

<a suppressor

<flash suppressor

<muzzle break

<compensator

<threaded barrels

<any characteristic of like kind, which is left open to the individual to determine if they’re in violation of the proposed law.

>This includes handguns

>Shotguns with the ability to accept detachable magazines or having a fixed capacity of over seven rounds would also become illegal to own.

>Proposed Senate Bill 18 makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to buy any firearm, as well as making it illegal under this age to own a handgun. This bill would also require background checks for gun sales between two private citizens, with an exemption for immediate family members.

>SB 18 makes it a felony to leave a loaded gun in such a manner as to endanger the life of any person under the age of 18. This bill would also make it a crime for any person to authorize a child under the age of 18 to use a firearm without the direct supervision of an adult.

>Senate Bill 64 states that a person is guilty of a felonious paramilitary activity if that person teaches or demonstrates the use or application of a firearm and has reason to know that such training will result in the furtherance of a civil disorder.

https://archive.fo/6A38N

There are three stories from Northern Nevada, two within rather close proximity of one another. I've done some digging and I think I've narrowed it down quite a bit.

Based on the description, we should be able to find a few abandoned mine shafts on the eastern side of the Ruby mountains.

>Per one UNR source, there should be two abandoned shafts in the vicinity of, both for tungsten.

>Cross-referencing that against their database for documents involving tungsten mines/claims in Elko county produced quite a few results.

>One definite tungsten mine location is by Battle Creek. The Battle Creek location is ~20 miles south of where we were looking, but it does have the crook in the road as described E Zed. The trees are there as described, but I can't see a structure or a giant rock. The topography isn't an exact match either.

>A website that tracks mining claims, places 4 potential entrances within a few hundred yards, but not at the particular location that E Zed indicated.

> There is also a second hook in the road on the other side, but it doesn't exactly match the description either.

If OP wasn't 100% accurate in his recollection, I would argue this would be a good place to start. The Northern location has proved much harder to locate, which will be addressed in the next post.

Handgun @ 18?

Hey dudes.

Pardon me if this is a stupid and/or noob question. I was wondering about the viability of getting a handgun at age 18. According to the ATF, it is possible to acquire such a weapon before the age of 21, provided you buy it from an unlicensed vendor (at least that is how I read it). How would one go about getting one though? Are the guys at Gun Shows for example considered unlicensed?

I live in Georgia, so I don't think there should be any cucked state laws to get in my way. I do not plan on carrying or anything, I just want to be able to take it to the range and such. Any input here would be helpful.

(It may seem like I am just too lazy to do real research, but in reality I am incredibly stupid and don't want to fuck myself over.)

Now what's your plan to renovate Germany's small and aging military? I propose:

Another favorite excerpt of mine from 'Horatius at the Bridge' to go with the webm:

With shield and blade Horatius right deftly turned the blow.

The blow, yet turned, came yet too nigh;

It missed his helm, but gashed his thigh:

The Tuscans raised a joyful cry to see the red blood flow.

He reeled, and on Herminius he leaned one breathing-space;

Then, like a wild-cat mad with wounds, sprang right at Astur's face.

Through teeth, and skull, and helmet so fierce a thrust he sped,

The good sword stood a hand-breadth out behind the Tuscan's head.

And the great Lord of Luna fell at that deadly stroke,

As falls on Mount Alvernus a thunder-smited oak.

Far o'er the crashing forest the giant arms lay spread;

And the pale augurs, muttering low, gaze on the blasted head.

On Astur's throat Horatius right firmly pressed his heel,

And thrice and four times tugged amain, ere he wrenched out the steel.

"And see," he cried, "the welcome, fair guests, that waits you here!

What noble Lucumo comes next to taste our Roman cheer?"

But at his haughty challenge a sullen murmur ran,

Mingled of wrath, and shame, and dread, along that glittering van.

Why is Russia lagging so much behind in engine/material technology.

Even though both Russia and China have a plethora of mineral resources and rare metals at their disposal they seem to lag behind the west (even the UK) at least two and three decades respectively in jet engine technology when Russia had even surpassed the West in certain aeronautic technology areas in the previous decades. In the case of China I can see the reason why (pic related) and it's easy to see why the West is so ahead in terms of avionics/electronics given its commercial colossi in even civil applications but in terms of material science it's seemingly inexcusable for the owners of the Siberian treasurebeds and successor of USSR, the largest heavy industrial power in history to be so easily surpassed by even dependent eurocuck vassals of America.

Foldable Pistols?

Are there any blueprints for pistols that can be folded in half, just like you can fold the grip of machine pistols sometimes. I am looking for a design where even the pistol itself can be folded, so that it can be carried in a very compact form. Is it even possible to fold the barrel, or would inserting a hinge result in a loss of functionality? I think a pistol that can be folded to max 15cm would be ideal. Preferrably, it is folded so that length and width are minimal (staying flat, not bloating all 3 dimensions). This would make it fit into clothing pockets much better.

Gun control

The shitlib approach involves banning guns. Ergo, we should ban anything with pointy objects because that would stop more tragedies like 9/11 from happening. Maybe if they weren’t able to get their hands on those pesky assault boxcutters with fully automatic blade action to kill all those pilots, passengers and flight attendants, then they wouldn’t have been able to hijack those planes. Because that would’ve stopped 9/11 from happening. Even though inmates still make shanks and shivs out of seemingly innocuous items like jolly ranchers, this ban will at least deter people from killing each other. Why would you need a boxcutter unless you wanted to kill somebody?

But on a serious note, does anyone have any statistics about gun control anywhere? I know that the homicide rate in America is 5.30 per 100,000 people, which is similar to that of Eastern Europe. Surprisingly low, given the amount of blacks and Mexicans who live here. In Switzerland, the murder rate is even lower at 0.50. New Zealand’s murder rate is 0.70, and Israel’s murder rate is 1.36. So in other words, a country with lax civilian gun ownership laws is no more likely to have a higher murder rate than a country with strict civilian gun ownership laws. I’ve also read from somewhere that there is no statistical correlation between gun ownership and gun crime amongst whites and that it was only true among negroes. Does anyone have that by any chance?

How do you do fellow Russian bots?

In light of the incoming new Top Gun movie, how about we suggest our glorious leader Putin to revive the F-14 for propagandistic reasons? Russians could easily claim a Tomcat from Iran to reverse-engineer it in exchange for slight modernization of Iran's F-14 fleet. Given Russia's extensive production of Su-27 family parts as well as variable-geometry wings' parts for its existing airfleets and costumers it would not take longer than half a year to retrofit an existing airframe into a fully modernized fighter.

Theoretically they could even produce entirely new "Tomcats" that externally would be nearly identical to the original but made by modern lightweight materials and wiring within a year utilizing pre-existing infrastructure for Su-27/30/35, Su-24 and maybe Tu-22M production lines.

Using a pellet gun as a self-defense weapon

Say you’ve got a pellet pistol like pic related that’s at least 200 - 450 fps, and shoots .177 lead pellets, would that be enough to stop an attacker? I know that a shot from a pellet gun can be fatal. Say you were to pop it into somebody’s mouth and shoot them in the back of the throat several times so that they drown to death in their own blood. Or aiming for the eyes to blind them, or aiming for the throat at a close range. If it’s powerful enough, you might be able to penetrate the windpipe. The face, as there’s many arteries that run along your face that aren’t too deep under the skin, and if you were to shoot one of those sensitive areas at close range with a pellet gun (like around the nose), they could bleed to death. If you were to debilitate or cripple them, you could aim for the groin (or underarm especially). I think that if they’re powerful enough in joules of energy released to propel the hard, lead pellet projectile, it could be enough to cripple or even kill an attacker. If you live in a place where gun laws are cucked but kaws regarding pellet guns are untouched, I’d recommend buying a good one, like pic related.

Falling-block weapons

Let's discuss all things falling-block, from pistols to cannons.

With that said, I've realized that I want to see a gas-operated, belt-fed, striker-fired, bullpup Madsen. Hear me out:

>gas-operated

Imagine an operating rod that has all the camways and whatnot required for the action. Now the receiver is much simpler, and the barrel is fixed. I imagine the action would have good repeatability, because there is not much to go wrong.

>belt-fed

A Hotchkiss-style feed system would go hand-in-hand with the way this gun loads new cartridges. Make it out of aluminium and it's not even heavy.

>striker-fired

If you have an operating rod anyway, then just fix a firing pin on it, and then you just only need a very simple trigger system, as the Lewis gun and the FG-42 demonstrated.

>bullpup

With a bolt that only moves vertically you could make a really short bullpup rifle. It ejects downward, therefore you don't have to worry about left-handed people. And the striker-fire system works great with bullpups, because you don't need a linkage.

The logistical quagmire of pussy delivery to active duty troops

I'm always been fascinated by the work behind supplying men with guns, food, and assorted kit although I've never explored the question of comfort women in any great detail. In ye olden days, medieval times and such, it seems pretty common that once you conquered a village or town you were free to rape and kill as you pleased.

Gradually, society civilized but the underlying animalistic urges remained. I've read about brothels and comfort houses during times of war in the 1900's but I'd be curious to read personal accounts on such places. I'd be keenly interested in accounts from the U.S. Occupation of Japan post WW2 where you had 350,000 men stationed at the end of 1945 and upwards of 60 to 70k Japanese prostitutes servicing them.

In the modern era what is the expectation of pussy availability for troops abroad? How has it changed since the industrial age?

Alternate history meme thread

This a bread to discuss silly alt-history scenarios that would be nigh impossible from a physics standpoint but could still be fun to shitpost about for their sheer absurdity.

Anyhow I've been wondering how WW2 could've turned out if Thule society memesters had used ancient Annunaki magicks to open a 3x3m Stargate between Königsberg and Hsinking by pure luck just prior to the fall of France, allowing for the instantaneous transfer of men and materiel between Japan and Germany over a distance of some seven thousand kilometers.

How deeply would the German and Japanese militaries have cooperated in such an event?

At the minimum I can see the Nips abandon their plans to attack burgers in the Pacific assuming Nippon still gets sanctioned in favor of creating german-trained Tank battalions equipped with license-built Pz. IIIs for the purpose of doing a joint Barbarossa.

Ideally the Luftwaffe and IJN/IJAAS would conduct joint trials and arrange for Japanese aircraft to escort german bombers deep over British territory during the BoB, leading to Nips abandoning their turn fighter autism in favor of cannon-armed high speed energy fighters.

The Kriegsmarine could speed up construction on the Graf Zeppelin and train its crew on Japanese carriers in Asia while the Nips would get german aero engines amid a host of german aircraft designs to directly compare against their own.

Germans could import centimetric Radar from Nips while in turn fixing Japan's crappy AEW doctrine, Nips could sell Type 91 torpedoes to Germans in return for the J1N and Ki-45 getting FuG radar equipment and so on Mussolini would hopefully be too distracted by all the autism to invade Greece.

If word got out to the Allies would they try and stage a joint UK/US/USSR/Free French assault on East Prussia ASAP?

Would Burgers attack Nips preemptively in the Pacific and would Chinese civilians in Nip-conquered areas be less inclined to turn to Mao and other allied scum if the local japanese rape administration were swapped with friendly germans?

How long would german and japanese intelligence even be capable of hiding the Gate from glow in the darks?

Russian LGBT Activist Killed After Being Listed on ‘Saw’-Inspired Gay Hunting Site

>A prominent Russian LGBT activist who had been featured on a blocked website that encourages people to “hunt down” sexual minorities has been killed in St. Petersburg.

>The website, inspired by the “Saw” horror film franchise and which encourages visitors to track down and assault people believed to be LGBT, was blocked in Russia last week.

>Yelena Grigoriyeva was found with multiple stab wounds and signs of strangulation near her home over the weekend, fellow activists said on social media.

>“She has recently fallen victim to violence and had often been threatened with murder,” fellow activist Dinar Idrisov wrote on Facebook on Monday.

>“A reminder: Yelena was listed on the homophobic ‘Saw’ website which has long threatened LGBT activists across the country,” photojournalist Georgy Markov wrote.

>Grigoriyeva had been stabbed at least eight times, the St. Petersburg Fontanka.ru news website reported.

Worst Korea Fires Upon Russian Aircraft

South Korea says its jets fired warning shots at a Russian surveillance plane that entered its airspace on Tuesday.

>Officials said the plane twice violated the airspace over the disputed Dokdo/Takeshima islands, which are occupied by South Korea but also claimed by Japan. South Korea's ministry of defence said it scrambled fighter jets in response and fired 360 machine-gun rounds.

>Russia has denied violating the country's airspace. Moscow said two of its bombers carried out a planned drill over "neutral waters" and denied any warning shots were fired by South Korean jets. But Japan then confirmed its military had also deployed fighter jets in response to the Russian incursion. Russia later said it had been conducting its first joint long-range air patrol in the region with China, according to Reuters news agency.

>This is the first incident of its kind between Russia and South Korea.

>South Korea's military said that in total three Russian and two Chinese military aircraft entered the Korea Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) on Tuesday morning. It said this group was made up of two Russian Tu-95 bombers, one Russian A-50 surveillance plane and two Chinese H-6 bombers. Russian and Chinese bombers and reconnaissance planes have occasionally entered the zone in recent years.

>South Korea said one of the Russian planes - the A-50 - flew beyond the KADIZ and entered the country's territorial airspace at around 09:00 local time (00:00 GMT). South Korean F-15 and F-16 planes were deployed to intercept it.

>The military said it fired 10 flares and 80 machine-gun rounds during the alleged first violation. It said the Russian plane then left before circling back round again, when it was met by 10 more South Korean flares and 280 machine-gun rounds.

>In its statement, Russia only mentioned two bomber planes. It did not specifically acknowledge the accusation that it had also sent an A-50 that violated South Korean airspace. Japan meanwhile has protested against both Russia and South Korea. Because it claims sovereignty over the islands, Japan's government said that Russia had violated its airspace. It also said that South Korea's response was extremely regrettable.

Terrorists taking advantage of gun type nuclear devices (Little Boy bombs)

In a gun-type nuclear device, there is a bullet, a target, a barrel, a tungsten carbide neutron reflector, a Beryllium and Polonium-210 neutron initiator, cordex explosive, a steel cube, and an electric primer. When the explosion goes off upon impact, the steel cube pushed the bullet forward through the barrel, covering the target that fits inside the bullet. The neutron reflector is attached to the rear of the bullet, the neutron initiator goes through the Uranium rings in the target, with the neutron reflector covering it upon impact and slamming into it, setting it off. The neutron initiator acts as the primer and the neutron reflector acts as the firing pin, which will detonate the Uranium, setting it off.

My idea for the detonation, since these were made at a time before cell phones or the internet, and used a Yagi antenna as part of the signal hardware to receive the blasting transmissions would be to instead use an electric blasting cap connected to a mobile phone detonator, which is detonated when the number is called, so that a terrorist can load it into the cargo bay of a box truck, leave the area, and detonate it from a distance after the detonator picks up the signal.

However, the only problem would be getting your hands on U235. One could instead use David Hahn’s method and produce U233 from Thorium-232, but you would need a lot of it (up to 64 kg).

>Nothing the US does will make Turkey abandon its deal with Moscow to purchase S-400 air defense systems, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, as Washington keeps threatening Ankara with sanctions.

>The purchase of the Russian-made weapons has long been a point of contention in relations between the two NATO allies. The US has repeatedly threatened Ankara with various punitive measures should they not abandon the deal. It has already canceled training for Turkish pilots learning to fly American F-35 fighter jets as well as threatened to kick Turkey out of the multi-billion-dollar fighter jet program altogether.

>Turkey, however, has stood defiant of US pressure and vowed to retaliate against any US sanctions.

>“No matter what sanctions decision, no matter which statement comes from the US, we have already bought the S-400,” Cavusoglu told journalists on Monday. The only question related to the deal still being discussed is when the air defense systems will be delivered to Turkey, he said.

>The minister also said that Turkey cannot rely on NATO in its national defense and accused Ankara’s Western allies of leaving it all alone in its hour of need.

>Turkey urgently needs air defense. We cannot say ‘NATO should protect us’ if there is an attack because, let’s be honest, NATO can only protect 30% of Turkish airspace. It was the US, Germany and the Netherlands that pulled out Patriots when we needed them the most.

HAPPY HODOW DAY, /k/!

Today marks the 325th anniversary of one of the worst spankings in military history; the battle of Hodów. I unfortunately can't find any English non-wikipedia sources, so without further ado;

From Wikipedia:

>The Battle of Hodów was a battle between the Kingdom of Poland and Crimean Khanate forces, fought in June 1694 in the Ruthenian Voivodeship of the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, near the village of Hodów (now in Zboriv Raion, Ternopil Oblast, Ukraine). Often it is called the Polish Thermopylae, like the Battle of Wizna.

>In June 1694 Tatar Muslims forces raided Polish territory with the aim to pillage the countryside and capture prisoners for ransom. The Polish forces sent to stop them consisted of 7 chorągwie of hussars and pancerni from the Trenches of the Holy Trinity (Okopy Świętej Trójcy) and The Redoubt of Virgin Mary (Szaniec Panny Marii) strongholds, approximately four hundred men in total; historian Mirosław Nagielski estimates 100 hussars and 300 pancerni. Tatar numbers were estimated at twenty-five to seventy thousand, with forty thousand being the most commonly quoted figure. John III Sobieski, the king of Poland at the time, also mentioned the figure of forty thousand.

>The first encounter took place on the fields near Hodów. The 400-strong Polish cavalry charged the 700-strong Tatar vanguard and made them withdraw. Shortly afterwards Polish forces retreated to Hodów village due to overwhelming enemy numbers, and proceeded to fortify themselves using heavy wooden fences left there from earlier Tatar invasions. For the next 6 hours Polish troops resisted relentless Tatar attacks. Even after the Polish ran out of bullets, they continued to fire at the enemy, using Tatar arrowheads as improvised ammunition for their guns.

>Unable to defeat the Poles, Tatars sent Polish-speaking Lipka Tatars to convince the Polish troops to surrender. When the Polish commander replied "Come and get us if you can", the Tatars withdrew to Kamieniec Podolski and gave up on the entire raid, having gained nearly nothing despite large troop losses and vast numerical advantage.

>King John III Sobieski made use of this outstanding victory to raise army morale: he paid generous compensation to those who lost their horses, financed treatment of wounded and rewarded those who captured enemy soldiers. In 1695 he also commissioned a statue commemorating the battle. This monument survived into modern times and was renewed in the summer of 2014, then officially unveiled during the celebration of 320th anniversary of the Battle, on 25 October 2014.

Small Arms: Gunnery and Considerations

How reliable is your primary weapon?

How long can it go til it blows?

What are it's limits?

I see some anons discussing the effectiveness of the AR-15 in combat, often times claiming it's lack thereof.

Many anons have concerns that their rifles would jam or otherwise become inoperable in a theoretical combat situation.

I feel that this is a good opportunity to clarify some differences between cyclical Rof, an effective Rof, and a sustained Rof

The numbers for each of these are as follows:

>cyclical Rof ~700-800rpm

>effective Rof ~45rpm

>sustained Rof ~12-15rpm

As you can see, the difference in dakka is significant. I have linked a video showing what happens to a fun at maximum (cyclical) rpm.

In this video he burns through ~400+ rounds rather quickly, which generally speaking is over the regular combat load for an average soldier, he is also firing non-stop, which almost no average soldier would do.

Some other details to note here are that the rifle he is using is among the cheapest available on the market (at the time of the video). The barrel is a standard mil-spec barrel, I suspect that a heavy barrel would be best. With that he also notes that it is already hot where he is while firing.

With his skinny barrel and high outdoor temps, I feel this is a good example of what many would experience with a run of the mill rifle without optimizations.

The effective rof of 45rpm is what can be expected of a man in heavy combat, meaning that he has a lot of trigger time, this is also fairly unlikely in most combat situations. While this would cause a weapon to overheat eventually, it would still be operation for a fairly long period of time, given that it has time to cool down in between periods of fire.

For a sustained rof, precise and accurate fire, at regular intervals. One could have his weapon operational almost 100% of the time with almost no fear of overheating and subsequently jamming/damaging his weapon.

For the average soldier carrying a load of no less than 210 rounds of ammunition for his weapon, he will have almost no chance of ever going full dakka until he has zip ammo.

If he is in heavy/intense combat against a force that outnumbers him then he may have to use the effective rof, this means fair-poor accuracy but delivering a constant volly. In this situation he would run out of munition before his weapon would fail, forcing him to retreat, giving his weapon a chance to cool in the meantime.

For a soldier in a battle where he is either going to be scouting or dealing with skirmishes or simply sparse combat, he can expect to use a sustained rof, possibly even less. In such a case as this his weapon stands almost no chance to overheat, and would give him a chance for resupply long before exhausting all munitions.

This brings up another important note, regardless of the quality of your weapon, it NEEDS to be well maintained in order to function at any of these levels with optimal efficiency. The better maintained a weapon is, the less chance it will malfunction at any of these levels, or even with random firing. ALL guns need lube, AR's are notorious for being maintenance queens in order to run efficiently.

>tl;dr AR's can be good reliable weapon if you maintain it properly and don' mag dump constantly

US Combat Ship Collides With Canadian Freighter In Montreal

Wed 6/26 0817

>An advanced U.S. Navy combat ship that is slated to be commissioned as the U.S.S. Billings collided with a berthed freighter in Montreal on Monday, FreightWaves reported. Both ships were damaged as a result, but their crews were safe. The U.S. Freedom-class littoral combat ship hit the M/V Rosaire A. Desgagnes at about 2PM on Monday, according to Lt. Cmdr. Courtney Hillson, a Navy spokesperson. 

>The Billings is 378 feet long and sustained damage below the waterline as a result. The damage to the 452 foot dry bulk vessel it collided with has not been fully assessed yet. The bulk vessel is owned by Quebec-based Transport Desgagnés.

>The U.S. Navy is reportedly still investigating the incident and despite the fact that the Billings was "capable" of making it to its Florida homebase, it is being kept in Montreal for additional damage assessments. 

>Hillson said: “The Navy is conducting an investigation to understand what happened and why. We will incorporate lessons learned to ensure we conduct safe and effective operations.”

>The Billings launched in 2017 and is one of the newest ships in the Navy's fleet. It cost $362 million and is billed as a "high-tech, cost-effective surface warfare vessel suited for modern defense needs". Freedom class combat boats like the Billings have "been plagued by a host of issues, which have kept them from going operational."

>The Rosarie was delivered in 2007 and built by Volharding Shipyards in the Netherlands, in collaboration with Jiangzhou Shipyard in China. It has a capacity of about 16,000 cubic meters.

The Chinese military has deployed armored vehicles to Europe for the first time

China has deployed personnel and armored medical vehicles to Germany for joint exercises, a first for the Chinese military.

>The Chinese military has deployed military personnel and armored medical vehicles to Germany for joint drills, a first for the Chinese People's Liberation Army as it attempts to forge closer ties with Europe.

>The joint exercise — Combined Aid 2019 — is focused on preparing troops with the medical service units of the Chinese and German armed forces to respond to humanitarian crises, such as mass casualty incidents and serious disease outbreaks, China's Xinhua News Agency reported. The exercise follows a cooperative military medical training exercise in 2016 in Chongqing, where the PLA and the German Bundeswehr practiced responding to an imaginary earthquake scenario.

>"We've seen China increasing its participation in these kinds of activities. It provides a low risk means to demonstrate its commitment to global governance, which may help reduce anxiety about its growing military capabilities," China watcher Matthew Funaiole, an expert at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told INSIDER. "Training exercises also help improve its coordination and logistics, which is helpful for the modernization process," he added.

>The PLA's paramedical forces have been stepping up their participation in this type of cooperative training. These troops have even been deployed to humanitarian crisis zones, such as the Ebola outbreak in certain parts of Africa.

>Yue Gang, a retired PLA colonel, told the South China Morning Post that there may be more to the Chinese military's activities than preparing for crises. "The PLA in the future will need to go abroad to protect China's overseas interests in countries along the Belt and Road Initiative," he explained. "If there could be some basic mutual trust and understanding with NATO forces, the risk of potential conflict could be greatly mitigated."

We already have plenty of machinists, engineers, and garage tinkerers around, we have hordes of CADs, blueprints, and instructions relating to the manufacture of a wide variety of firearms at our disposal. I at least know how to manage the business side of things and would be 100% shocked if there weren't any other anons here who knew the same, and there's also inevitably money to be found on here as well. Following US law, we can all benefit the community through our success, make money, and perhaps revolutionize firearms while we're at it one way or another.

Email is muhthrowawayaccount@protonmail.com - will gladly answer any questions regarding this.

As said before:

DIY centrifuge

Since nukes seem to be a hot topic as of late, I came up with an idea for a vortex centrifuge that can be made at home. Here’s how it works. Tell me what you think of this.

There’s a thick marble container with a syringe at the top that is filled with just the right amount of hydrogen gas to inject inside the tapering tube containing the UF6 gas, that is connected to the back of it using a screwable gas jet nozzle.

At the front is a hypodermic syringe needle connected to a spinney mechanism that’s connected to a glass jug of water to collect the U235. When it spins, the spinney, which is separated from the glass to prevent breakage, spins around on the outside while the syringe collects the gas from the tapering tube in through a short piece off a rubber hose.

The machine used to spin it is like a conveyor belt spinning device. It uses either a conveyor belt or two iron hands which grab around the tube and spins it at the speed of light to separate the heavier gas from the lighter one, so that the heavier U238 goes to the back of the tube while the lighter U235 goes through the hole into the jug of water for collection.

While it might not be 100% pure, just remember that the purity levels of U235 for the Little Boy bomb was 80-something percent. I believe the purest levels of Uranium used in any bomb was 88%. So it doesn’t have to be 100% pure U235 even if there are some impurities.

Since digging for natural Uranium ore would require a lot of resources and would be almost impossible to do without anyone noticing, you could either buy some pitchblende online from sources that sell ores for collectors or scour mining sites, rivers and lakes for some with your Geiger Counter.

Whether or not this works is a bit irrelevant, since this is only a hypothetical. Any thoughts?

India sends another all women contingent for UN Peacekeeping operations to Congo

What could possibly go wrong?

An all women Indian contingent from Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) mandated to the United Nations’ peacekeeping operations will soon be assuming their duties in the war hit Democratic Republic of Congo or MONUSCO. It will be deployed as a rapidly deployable battalion of the Indian Army.

On India sending peacekeepers to Africa, according to Africa expert Prof Ajay Dubey, Jawahar Lal Nehru University, “India is an emerging global power and it has been discharging its global responsibilities in peace keeping and conflict management as one of the largest contributors to peace keeping operations around the world including in Africa.”

Its initial involvement was in Congo. African countries see Indian peacekeeper presence as one of the most acceptable and non-partisan force,” Dubey opines.

According to Syed Akbaruddin, India’s Permanent Representative to UN Ambassador, at the UN in New York, “India’s Female Engagement Team deployed in UN Peacekeeping is on way to assume duties in Democratic Republic of Congo.”

While this is the first 22-member women UN contingent of the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) since its inception 55 years ago, this will be the second CAPF women contingent from India to the UN. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has been sending its women combatants for similar duties under the UN Flag in Liberia for many years now.

As part of its gender parity and sensitization initiative, the UN has been seeking deployment of a female engagement team (FET) in its missions. The Indian contingent which is soon going to be deployed will be involved in carrying out patrolling and will be engaging with the women and locals in that country under the UN charter. Also, they will be undertaking civic programmes and assisting in conducting investigations and riot control. They have been trained in unarmed combat, weapons handling, tactics, and international laws.

US Military Developing New Designs for Hypervelocity Firearms

I'm surprised to see this hasn't been brought up here yet but the US Army revealed plans to develop a new approach to bolt and chamber design that would allow cartridges to be loaded to insane pressures (up to 100ksi compared to today's 62ksi for 5.56).

>Among their goals is hypervelocity for extended range lethality from standard sized weapons, and full-sized rifle velocities with firearms that are half the weight, half the length, and hold more ammunition than the Army’s M4 carbine.

>“The goal is to get rifle-like velocities out of a very small weapon that is high capacity, that’s either adaptable for room-clearing or confined spaces,”

>The muzzle velocity was over 2,900 feet per second, outperforming similar short barreled weapons like the FN P90, which rates at 2,350 feet per second at the muzzle.

>(T)he U.S. Army’s new 24-inch prototype barrel produced muzzle velocities of 4,600 to 5,750 feet per second.

This is all centered around a new bolt lockup design that uses a screw (hasn't this been common on artillery pieces for over a century? Why is this just now being tried in small arms?) and a collet surrounding the brass case to keep it from expanding against the chamber wall so tightly that extraction becomes impossible. They're also playing around with tapered barrels which has me curious about what they've done to prevent barrel wear with these absurd velocities and the obvious increase in stress and friction associated with tapered bore designs. The drawbacks in terma of durability are obvious as many of these ideas have been tried in the past only to be abandoned as the best materials available still were not enough to overcome the increased wear associated with hypervelocity speeds and pressures. Maybe they've made some sort of materials science breakthrough in terms of barrel material? A ceramic coating perhaps? It's still a very neat development that could result in a huge leap in firearm performance if it pays off.

Spiritual War and it in the Modern World

This is a thread to discuss the spiritual side of war, war as a spiritual path.

I know a little about this subject, so to kickstart discussion I will post Evola's take on the value of war in the four ages. If I get anything wrong or I don't enter in enough detail please explain further or correct me.

In the Golden Age, war is seen as a path towards transcendance, a way to reach the divine, it is seen as a positive. It is waged for such reasons on top of material ones. Similar to the Jihad of muslim thought. Honestly this stage is the least I know of so if someone can explain it better please do so. Tying in to this, I remember Evola explaining how through aproaching death, or other extreme conditions (though only in a specific way) one can reach Transcendental Realism, which I really can't explain either.

In the Silver Age, war is degraded from spiritual to more material concerns. It is fueled by loyalty to the King, or to the Nation, and such things. It may retain in this stage a semblance of spirituality.

In the Bronze Age, it has fallen down to defending the population of the state (only), to bring prosperity to it, and is seen as a tragedy, a "necesary evil", and while serving is still a honor, many would see it as a negative and to be avoided (iirc from this stems the implementation of compulsion in it, where in past ages, while compulsion still existed, the view on it was very different). Still, it remains within a nation and still retains some sort of loyalty to something, though the loyalty has shifted to a more mundane thing.

In the Iron Age, Evola predicted the complete abandonment of the idea of nation and it centering on purely economic matters. He gave the example of the communist revolution being such a war, though it has turned out that the iron war didn't manifest in such a way. While it did exist for a while as the communist revolution, a much better example would be the complete mechanization of war, removing Man from it, together with the waging of them for economic reasons (e.g. USA and Oil Wars). War shifted from being for the prosperity of the people to the stable existance of the economic system, or for the interests of corporate magnates.

All of this is accompanied by the constant devaluation and degeneration of military institutions (a modern example would be the forcing of women into the structure).

The use of "Age" might be confusing. There isn't a sharp boundarie between the ages, but as a constant existance (though periods can be roughly spearated), rather a "state" than a period of time. It being so, one can find events of one Age in a time where there is other, in the shape of renmants of a previous age -the crusades very much had a spiritual part to them- or of "pioneers" of a coming one -the communist revolution, of Iron, which happened on the Bronze Age, and, argueably, the Fascists/NS, which could be seen as a remnant of the gold age or a pioneer of the coming one-.

Another point is that War having one aspect doesn't bar it from having a lower one too, as such, Golden War has a national, an economic, and a material angle. (I'm not really sure about this though, how does fighting for the Race or for the Nation tie into this? Perhaps there is a spiritual component to such that I'm not aware of)

Now given this, it becomes obvious that one cannot come to War as a Path in modern, mainstream institutions -all of them being bronze or iron-. One can either follow it individually inside one of these organizations, or forming or joining of a sort of "traditionalist warband".

This is only one aspect of spiritual war though, so as not to give the thread tunnel vision.

While it would be nice to see the Murder/k/ube discussed in this topic, I would prefer it to be aproached seriously so the thread doesn't become shitposting.

Dirty nukes

Since this seems to be a topic of interest as of late, I’ve decided to come up with my own basic concept of an improvised nuke that is much more plausible than most other methods — using the TNT equivalent instead of actual fissile material.

So, let’s say you want to make a Tsar bomb. How much TNT would you need? 50 megatons. However, the next problem would be actually obtaining enough of the materials neededto make TNT. In most first world nations, the chemicals needed to create explosives are heavily regulated (like nitric acid). So instead, my solution to that problem would be to use gunpowder, which isn’t made from all those harsh laboratory chemicals that would be needed to make TNT or RDX. All you would need is Potassium Nitrate, Charcoal and Sulfur. And you could even make gunpowder from your own urine. You would just need enough of it for it to be the equivalent of 50 megatons of TNT.

But the next problem is how exactly you’re going to detonate this device. Since obtaining the materials and engineering necessary to make an ICBM would be universally implausible, I’ll just say to use the Hamas method, in that you would make sugar rockets, provided that you have enough of it to launch the warhead to the desired destination (i.e. from the United States to Israel, for example), and for the guidance, you could use a homemade RC Servo mechanism that’s big enough to weigh down and direct the rocket to anywhere you want it to go. As for the detonation, you could just use a nail and a bullet, with the explosive charge tightly packed in the explosive shell to hold it in place and for it to burn faster upon detonation. You could even add some radioactive materials as a finishing touch; say radioactive cobalt or any other radioactive material that you can find.

Also, my design is of a rocket, not of a device that is dropped from an aircraft or fired from a submarine.

But would this actually be plausible? It sounds kinda stupid, since you would need sufficient amounts of each material, but at least on paper it’s possible.

Defence against laser weapons

How would /k/ defend against Dazzlers with a limited budget?

Dazzlers are fucking dangerous to civilians, especially if more powerful versions are developed which could permanently blind. The fact that they can fire over a large area and change frequencies quickly means there would be no way to take cover from an attack before it hits you. Although these weapons are illegal for governments to make, the fact that improvised versions wouldn't be hard for terrorist/rebels/whoever to jury-rig means defending against them is important. Pilots and other airmen are especially vulnerable, owing to the fact that the attack doesn't really suffer fall off when aiming up.

The most total defence I could think of was basically a pass through VR headset, but this would be impractical as the vision inside is not accurate and lag free enough for use in combat and would cause vision issues if worn constantly. Simply wearing an expensive pair of thermal googles would also work, but the issues of limited vision and constant use still apply, with the added problem of cost. Sunglasses, ski-goggles and even shooting glasses would be basically useless as dazzlers could change power and frequency quickly, unless /k/ knows some special gear for defence against this.

Some sort of compound in a smoke grenade which refracted all frequencies in and near the visible range and infra-red would be useful, but in practice it would only be useful as cover if you already knew you were under attack.

GIVE US MORE SHEKELS SO WE CAN KEEP PRETENDING TO BE USEFUL, STUPID GOYIM

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/nra-could-shut-down-forever-group-warns-in-fundraising-letter-194322998.html

>In November, alarm bells started to ring about the National Rifle Association’s finances. At the time, the gun rights group was reportedly unable to afford coffee for its employees. At the time, the news was just another financial hit for the organization that had been suffering from declining revenues and membership dues.

>Now, in a fundraising letter sent this month, Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has kvetched that the NRA could shut down forever, blaming fellow Jew and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

>“Right now we’re facing an attack that’s unprecedented not just in the history of the NRA, but in the entire history of our country,” LaPierre wrote. “And if this attack succeeds, NRA will be forced to shut down forever.”

>Currently, the gun rights group is entangled in a lawsuit against the state of New York and Gov. Cuomo. The lawsuit alleges that the governor in his capacity has pressured financial institutions and insurers to stop working with the NRA.

>Insurance company Lockton provided personal liability insurance for members of the NRA’s Carry Guard program, which provides training for self-defense and other resources. According to the Carry Guard website, “without insurance, lawful self-defense can cost you a fortune.” The insurance is no longer available in New York after Lockton was hit with a $7.5 million fine in May 2018. New York’s Department of Financial Services said the NRA is not licensed to conduct insurance business in the state.

>“Cuomo’s tactics are already working,” the NRA says in its letter. “One by one, more and more banks and insurance companies across the country are knuckling under to Cuomo’s threat — and telling NRA they won’t do business with us — because they don’t want to be targeted and crushed by Cuomo’s strong-arm tactics and the vast power of thousands of New York bureaucrats.”

>“Unless we can force Cuomo to break off this attack, NRA will have no choice but to cease operations after 147 years of fighting for freedom.”

>According to a Daily Beast report, LaPierre then compared Cuomo’s efforts to government efforts to crack down on dissent in China, Cuba, and North Korea.

>“You and I have seen how the power of government has been used in China and Cuba and North Korea to stamp out opposing views and silence political opponents,” he wrote. “But never in my life did I think we’d see these tactics brazenly and openly deployed by government officials, right here in the United States, to destroy people and organizations they disagree with.”

>The NRA then makes a final plea for contributions, saying that the group cannot “survive without your help.”

Reminder that Wayne LaPissant makes five million shekels a year off the NRA(not counting bonuses) and then complains that the group can't afford coffee for employees. All while refusing to take a pay cut, of course.

Friendly reminder that the NRA made no significant gun rights pushes in the two years that Republicowards controlled all three branches of government.

California Gun Owners Feel The Repercussions Of Illegal Aliens Obtaining IDs

Meanwhile, as California provides sanctuary to known illegal aliens and hands out drivers licenses and other benefits willy-nilly, native born legal American citizens residing in California, are now required to have thoroughly vetted ID to exercise their constitutional human rights….

California Gun Owners Feel The Repercussions Of Illegal Aliens Obtaining IDs

The California Department of Justice on Monday filed an "emergency regulations” proposal, If adopted, Californians would be required to have REAL IDs to purchase firearms and ammunition beginning on July 1. The proposal is being made despite the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives previously saying Federal Licensees (FFLs) could continue to non-federally compliant driver's licenses and identification cards.

If a person doesn't have a REAL ID, buyers are required to provide documentation, in conjunction with their non-REAL ID, showing they're legal citizens and are allowed to possess a firearm.

Acceptable forms of documentation include:

(1) Valid, unexpired U.S. passport or passport card.

(2) Certified copy of U.S. birth certificate.

(3) U.S. Certificate or Consular Report of Birth Abroad of a U.S. Citizen.

(4) Valid, unexpired foreign passport with valid U.S. immigrant visa and approved Record of Arrival/Departure (I-94) form.

(5) Certified copy of birth certificate from a U.S. Territory.

(6) Certificate of Naturalization or U.S. Citizenship.

(7) Valid, unexpired Permanent Resident Card.

Because the California DOJ filed this under an "emergency regulation," the public participation process is limited to five days. 

When a person gets a driver's license or ID card, their identity is supposed to be verified.

That's why it's been an acceptable form of identifying someone for so long. When someone applies for their license they have to take in a birth certificate, provide their fingerprint and verify their identity. California opened themselves up to a can of worms when they began issuing driver's licenses to illegal aliens. Now the state's IDs are no longer federally compliant. 

The reason the IDs are no longer federally compliant is because of Assembly Bill 60, which gave driver's licenses to illegal aliens. In fact, the American Conservative Liberties Union of Northern California provided a guide for illegal aliens who have licenses under AB 60 because other states and federal jurisdictions don't recognize their ID as legitimate.

Gun owners are now having to jump through hoops, at the last minute, because California decided to meddle down the identification process and provide driver's licenses to anyone and everyone. Now California gun owners are being forced to get REAL IDs because the state wanted to treat everyone as a citizen.

Vehicle / domicile considerations for rifles

I would eventually like to grow up and become a gun owner, but I am concerned about the prerequisites I should perhaps be considering first to properly shelter and secure my future firearms.

In Canada you basically can't own them unless you explain some "legitimate" purpose other than self defense. I can use "hunting" as my justification for the basic license, but for that to be plausible means I should also get a hunting license. Luckily they offer those in 2-for-1 discount deals, though it's about $400 for the training and licensing fees before you even begin to buy guns or accessories.

To be a plausible hunter means I ought to get a pickup truck, because that's about the only thing you could plausible transport a buck carcass in. I would also need a case to transport a secured firearm in until I get to a place for hunting. I would need a driver's license too, to be able to drive the truck. Trucks are pretty expensive, I wish I had a wealthy relative to just gift me one. I can't imagine affording something like that on minimum wage. Is the security of a firearm a dream for people with established careers with an affirmed place in society?

I also think, since I do not want to leave my firearm in a truck unattended, that if I do not sleep in the truck (hot in summer, cold in winter, I imagine) I would need a home to keep it in. I think a lot of landlords wouldn't like that. I don't know if my rights would be protected, but I would like a carrying case for a rifle which is not obviously a rifle case so that it doesn't cause discrimination against me. I know my mom who I currently live with would hate the idea of me owning a gun, much less keeping it in the house, even if I kept it safely locked up. It seems like to have true freedom to keep a firearm you would need to actually be the owner of your home. I also worry that if police learn you have a firearm they will begin to concoct schemes to murder you as they could then plant your own gun on you and say you aimed it at them so they had to defend themselves.

To get a restricted firearms license (semi-automatic fire or handguns) I apparently need to take up target shooting, which is an additional expense. These clubs are expensive, and to get one with lower dues means you need to buy a share in the club which is over 9000 dollars when I asked. Some places offer discounts for military, so I'm wondering if getting into the reserves would help me get that discount. What I like about the reserves is apparently they don't deploy overseas unless they volunteer, they are slated for local in-country operations, so I wouldn't have to go die for Israel or anything. Still potentially a target for terror groups, but I'm hoping the training I get might help balance out the danger factor for life in general.

The extra income from reserves might help with affording a house/truck but it still seems like a far-off dream. To get in requires references and I don't socialize so I'm having trouble how to build those references. How do you build 20-month relationship with 3 people to total 60 months (5years) as required?

China and Vietnam

Does anyone have any insight on how China and Vietnam size up to each other militarily? Just looking online I found

>China has 2,035,000 active military personnel (510,000 reserve)

>Vietnam has 482,000 active military personnel (5,000,000 reserve)

I've also heard people claim the Chinese Coast Guard alone could successfully take on Vietnam's Navy, and I'd assume the PLAN is leagues ahead of Vietnam in terms of Naval power. Just how would a conflict between China and Vietnam play out? How further ahead is China in terms of military technology? Does Vietnam get any support from the US nowadays?

Number of dogs needed to hold off the ATF

1 million dogs are needed per ATF agent to indefinitely occupy said agent with shooting ablative dog armor.

For calculations I assumed the agent would be continuously supplied with loaded mags, kill 1 dog every 2 seconds, and work for 8 hrs each day. This works out to 15,000 dogs per agent per day.

Assuming 2 litters per year of 3 puppies each and a 50-50 male-female ratio, I found that it would take approximately 1,000,000 dogs to occupy 1 ATF agent indefinitely.

9th circuit on reasonable "fleeing from police"

Take a look at the PDF. I am very confused what they are trying to delineate here. IT appears that the ninth ruled that having a gun does not constitute grounds for a search under the 4th. So I guess you can tell police to shove off the next time they get a tip about you having a possession of a gun.

Basic summary:

>Tip about a didndu with a gun in a high crime area

>Officers try to tell the dindu to stop

>dindu runs, get held up at gunpoint

>gets frisked and searched, finds narcotic

>dindu tries to suppress evidence in court cause terry search criteria was not met in his case

>district court says nope

>9th circuit of appeals delivers a 2-0 smackdown

<mfw en banc hearing going to reverse this shit likely.

I quote the pdf:

>Here, the lack of facts indicating criminal activity or a known high crime area drives our conclusion. The Metro officers who stopped Brown took an anonymous tip that a young, black man “had a gun”—which is presumptively lawful in Washington—and jumped to an unreasonable conclusion that Brown’s later flight indicated criminal activity.

>The anonymous tip that Brown had a gun thus created at most a very weak inference that he was unlawfully carrying the gun without a license, and certainly not enough to alone support a Terry stop

Washington sheriffs refuse to enforce new gun control laws.

https://archive.fo/ehYxb

https://www.apnews.com/b186ce346d2d446babceaf15fec68e6c

Sheriffs in a dozen Washington counties say they won’t enforce the state’s sweeping new restrictions on semi-automatic rifles until the courts decide whether they are constitutional.

A statewide initiative approved by voters in November raised the minimum age for buying semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21, required buyers to first pass a firearms safety course and added expanded background checks and gun storage requirements, among other things. It was among the most comprehensive of a string of state-level gun-control measures enacted in the U.S. after last year’s shooting at a Florida high school.

The National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation have filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging the initiative is unconstitutional. They say its purchasing requirements violate the right to bear arms and stray into the regulation of interstate commerce, which is the province of the federal government.

Sheriffs in 12 mostly rural, conservative counties — Grant, Lincoln, Okanogan, Cowlitz, Douglas, Benton, Pacific, Stevens, Yakima, Wahkiakum, Mason and Klickitat — along with the police chief of the small town of Republic, have said they will not enforce the new law until the issues are decided by the courts.

Reinventing standards RP thread

Suppose that you went back to 1000AD and invented firearms, given the ability to utilize any modern manufacturing method how would you standardize firearms? Examples:

>No meme calibers, have ~5 extremely versatile calibers, sizes 2-4 have shotshell variants with the smallest size being similar to 22LR and the largest being 50BMG (yes there would be larger ones for heavy weapons but I don't know much about them)

>Universal platform like the AR-15 but with even more variety. Swap in a bolt-action receiver, put a stock on the back of a pistol and swap out the barrel to make it a carbine, swap out the barrel of a shotgun with a rifled one to make it a rifle, etc.

>Every screw is a phillipshead actually I haven't encountered any weapon where this isn't the case

>Use a consistent naming convention for weapons that conveys caliber, length, and receiver type. Examples:

>Carbine ->L(ight bullet)M(edium barrel)S(emiautomatic) -> LMS

>LMG -> H(eavy bullet)L(ong barrel)A(utomatic) -> HLA

>Survival rifle -> T(iny bullet)L(ong barrel)B(reak-action) -> TLB

>Pump shotgun -> M(edium bullet)M(edium barrel)P(ump-action) -> MMP

Of course you would probably change some of the words for receivers that start with the same letter, like B for bolt-action and break-action.

What other things do you wish you could change, /k/?

https://www.yahoo.com/news/armed-civilians-detaining-migrants-border-211510482.html

Armed civilians are detaining migrants at the border. The (((ACLU))) wants them (((investigated)))

>In the middle of the night Tuesday, United Constitutional Patriots, an armed civilian group patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border in the Sunland Park area, detained more than 300 migrants who illegally crossed the border.

>The group, who claim they are at the border to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America,” is patrolling the desert near Sunland Park searching for migrants.

>In a video livestreamed April 16 on Facebook by one of the United Constitutional Patriots' members, the group is seen detaining a group of about 300 migrants, including children. The video starts in the middle of the incident with U.S. Border Patrol vehicle and agents already at the scene.

>In the video, the member repeatedly says, “This is an invasion … and it is never, never ending” referring to the large number of Central American migrants crossing into the U.S. to seek asylum.

>The group claims on its website that it is not violating any state or federal laws.

>The (((American Civil Liberties Union of New Mexico))) disagrees with the group calling their actions, “unlawful.”

>In a letter sent to New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, (((ACLU))) officials request they “investigate an armed vigilante group currently engaged in the unlawful detention of hundreds of migrants near New Mexico’s southern border.”

>The letter states, “an armed fascist militia organization describing itself as the United Constitutional Patriots arrested nearly three hundred people seeking safety in the United States, including young children, near Sunland Park, New Mexico. Other videos appear to show arrests in the past few hours. The vigilante members of the organization, including Jim Benvie, who posted videos and photographs of the unlawful arrests to social media, are not police or law enforcement and they have no authority under New Mexico or federal law to detain or arrest migrants in the United States.”

>It continues, “Their actions undermine the legitimate efforts of our state’s law enforcement officials to keep New Mexico families safe and they erode community trust. The Trump administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law. This has no place in our state: we cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum. We urge you to immediately investigate this atrocious and unlawful conduct.”

>ACLU concludes their letter stating, “The Trump administration’s vile racism has emboldened white nationalists and fascists to flagrantly violate the law. This has no place in our state: we cannot allow racist and armed vigilantes to kidnap and detain people seeking asylum. We urge you to immediately investigate this atrocious and unlawful conduct."

>United Constitutional Patriots leaders could not immediately be reached by phone or through social media for comment Friday. United Constitutional Patriots members have posted dozens of videos of the group patrolling and detaining migrants they find in the desert.

>The videos show men and women wearing camouflage military-like uniforms with assault rifles “scooping the border” looking for migrants. The group records videos on its Facebook page in order to document the situation with migrants at the border and to “show the truth to the American people,” United Constitutional Patriots New Mexico Border Ops spokesman Jim Benvie told the El Paso Times in a past interview.

>“The truth isn’t being told about this crisis," Benvie said. "A lot of people are accusing President (Donald) Trump of manufacturing a crisis and I think the videos we are down here producing, which isn’t left or right, is providing evidence that this is a crisis.”

USN cruiser and Russian destroyer nearly collide

No longer content to hit simple cargo vessels, the US Navy has advanced to attempting to use other militaries' ships to sink its Ticonderogas.

https://archive.fo/XyiBW

>Russia and the United States blamed each other for a near collision between their warships in the East China Sea on Friday with both countries accusing one another of dangerous and unprofessional behavior.

>Russia’s Pacific Fleet said that the USS Chancellorsville, a guided-missile cruiser, had come within just 50 meters (165 feet) of the Russian destroyer Admiral Vinogradov which had been forced to take emergency action to avoid a collision, Russian news agencies reported.

>They cited a Russian Pacific Fleet statement as saying the incident took place in the early hours of Friday morning in the eastern part of the East China Sea at a time when a group of Russian warships was on a parallel course with a U.S. naval strike group.

>“The U.S guided-missile cruiser Chancellorsville suddenly changed course and cut across the path of the destroyer Admiral Vinogradov coming within 50 meters of the ship,” the statement said.

>“A protest over the international radio frequency was made to the commanders of the American ship who were warned about the unacceptable nature of such actions,” it said.

>That version of events was rejected by the U.S. Navy, which said the behavior of the Russian ship had been “unsafe and unprofessional”.

>“While operating in the Philippine Sea, a Russian Destroyer…made an unsafe maneuver against USS Chancellorsville,” U.S. Seventh Fleet spokesman Commander Clayton Doss said.

>“This unsafe action forced Chancellorsville to execute all engines back full and to maneuver to avoid collision.”

>He described a Russian assertion that the U.S. ship had acted dangerously as “propaganda”. The Russian destroyer came within 50 to 100 feet of the Chancellorsville, he said, putting the safety of her crew and the ship at risk.

>The incident comes days after Washington and Moscow sparred over an allegedly unsafe spy plane intercept by a Russian fighter jet near Syria.

David Hahn’s “nuclear reactor”

So, I’ve heard many outlets refer to David Hahn’s “nuclear reactor” as a “breeder reactor” when it was more like a pile (second pic related), bevause in order to make a breeder reactor you would need a massive industrial project that would be worth the economy of an entire nation to afford and wouldn’t be possible for someone like him to hide from the authorities. But one part that confused me was the “gun” he made for the device. It was made from a Beryllium Copper strip (like a piece of film) with tritium waxed over it. First of all, I don’t see how this would work for many reasons, secondly I doubt that it even would work even if you somehow got the right amount materials in a sufficient enough quantity, because Beryllium copper is like 0.5 - 3% Beryllium and the Beryllium that nuclear facilities use is pure non-alloy Beryllium. And the fact that Tritium is a gas, not a wax. Does anyone know what the hell these media sources were talking about?

Jihadi John was killed by US drone strike after gait and angle of his beard gave him away

>A documentary being broadcast on Monday reveals for the first time details of how Jihadi John, whose real name was Mohammed Emwazi, was hunted down and killed in 2015 with the help of state-of-the-art tracking and identification technology. Colonel Steve Warren, the Pentagon spokesman at the time, tells the programme: 'Because of the conditions — it was night — we were using infrared. 'You can't see his face but we could sort of see how he moved, the cut of his jib, so to speak. The angle of his beard, these things we could see. 'Eventually we were convinced that this is Jihadi John. And so the floor commander at the time orders, 'Take the shot.'

>Drones had been searching for the ISIS terrorist for a year but any attempt to wipe him out was made difficult because he always surrounded himself with women and children and made sure he was in crowded areas. General Richard Barrons, former Commander Joint Forces Command, who was involved in the operation, told us: 'We identified Emwazi very quickly after the execution videos he appeared in but finding him was much harder because we did not have any people on the ground in Raqqa. 'The tracking was all done electronically but eventually, it was his beard and the way he walked that gave him away.'

>He first appeared in August 2014 when he killed American journalist James Foley. Officials at GCHQ knew within a matter of hours that it was Emwazi, establishing his identity through voice recognition technology and comparing the pattern of the veins in his left hand in which held a knife pointed directly towards the camera with images of him in archive photographs. GCHQ used recordings of his voice from previous wire taps taken during a three-year surveillance operation and compared it to the disguised voice used in the ISIS video. Emwazi's identity was not publicly confirmed until February 2015.

>Once the hunt for him was underway, Emwazi used his background as a former computer science student at Westminster University to evade American and British authorities. He used encryption programmes, private networks and wiped clean every computer he ever sent messages on. He was eventually discovered after he contacted his wife and child who lived in Iraq, kicks staring a year-long hunt. Douglas Wise, who helped oversee the CIA's Middle East operations, compared the mission to locate Emwazi to searching for a 'needle in a haystack full of needles.' He said: 'If he had any hope for survival he had to blend in to the citizens of Raqqa. He had to look from a distance just like them.'

>The programme also traces Emwazi's life in Britain after arriving as a six-year old from Kuwait and shows rare footage of his time at school. He attended Quintin Kynaston Community Academy, in St John's Wood, North London, where he was bullied for having bad breath and is filmed constantly holding his hand over his mouth. Emwazi had been under surveillance by MI5 until he disappeared in 2012, before emerging as the ISIS executioner dubbed 'Jihadi John' two years later. MI5 even made an unsuccessful attempt to recruit him as an informant before he fled to Syria.

/K/ommando kills qouta during confiscation

The gunman who shot and killed Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona Thursday night has been identified as Kevin Douglas Limbaugh, a 48-year-old man who was ordered last fall to surrender a semiautomatic rifle after he was convicted in a battery case.

Yolo County Superior Court records show Limbaugh was charged in September with battery with serious bodily injury, a incident that a source said stemmed from him punching a co-worker at Cache Creek Casino in the face after a dispute.

The case was resolved as a misdemeanor conviction, and California Department of Justice records show he agreed to surrender a black .223-caliber Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in November.

Court records also show Limbaugh did not possess any other weapons, and authorities have yet to determine where he obtained the two semiautomatic handguns he is believed to have used in a Thursday night rampage that killed the 22-year-old officer and shot up a surrounding downtown neighborhood.

Davis police had refused to release the name of the gunman, but the Yolo County coroner confirmed his identity Saturday after The Bee published Limbaugh’s name.

Leftover Halloween decorations still hang on the gate outside his front door – a green and black “Beware” sign and a plastic skull.

Kevin Douglas Limbaugh documents 011219

http://archive.is/HPhtd

An unsightly brown tarp was pulled tight across the fence in the front yard Saturday, and potted plants that have long been neglected sit below the front window. A calico kitten could be seen moving around inside the home, but there was no sign of other occupants.

“It’s a good group of people who live there,” said Grace, another neighbor who asked that her last name not be used. “It’s unfortunate what happened.”

Down the block, within eyesight of the small house, the Corona family gathered at the shrine marking the spot where Corona was shot and killed Thursday night, crying and holding on to each other.

Volunteers walked down Fifth Street early Saturday tying blue ribbons around every tree, including the old, gnarled tree that stands directly outside Limbaugh’s home.

Proper gun age for children

A couple of minutes ago I watched a video of a Demotard gifting his barely 5yo son a fucking .22lr bolt action. Which has upset me, a pro-gun Strelok, and also a father, on a very deep level. While I like the idea of "Getting them early" and whatever other shit may be falling out of someone's mouth, I have considered 5 to be a little fucking downright head-into-woodchipper retarded.

In the video, the kid is clearly faking interest and excitement. When asked "what do you like the most about gunshops?", poor boy responds "Puppies". While they have managed to hit quite a few shots (the demofaggot didn't even give his son the first shot - just a small detail , but hints that he probably bought this for himself when his 5 (I repeat, FIVE) year old boy eventually drifts off his goldfish attention span on to something he can safely take and fuck off playing in the corner, without supervision), and the boy expressed mildly enthusiastic desire to shoot more, it's clear as day that this was not what he expected on his fucking 5th birthday.

<So what the fuck do you suggest, 18?

No. For the normal child, without excessive interest in funs, 12. For a very enthusiastic child - maybe 8-10, depending on interest and discipline. At this age boys, to my experience, start being interested in gun roleplay with nerfshit / audiovisual gun toys, and the age is perfect to forge a long lasting interest. While giving a gun to a boy of 5 will only make him get tired of that gun very soon, as most kids lose interest in their toys overtime in the 3 to 8 period, and we will get a boomer / fudd in the making, with at most, a mild interest in funs, with no will to fight for it, or git gud even.

Technical Thread I Guess

Alright /k/unts, so I acquired a belt fed semi auto to supplement my RPK as a support weapon. I was wondering what you fags thought would be the best setup for a technical. First pic related shows my incredibly basic technical setup. Standard UK59 mount in AA configuration in the bed with sandbags to stop recoil from moving the gun back. Benefits are that it has a 360 degree free hand traverse range and 110 degree free hand elevation range. Downsides are that it takes up the whole bed, leaving little room for other guys in the back and its not a quick detach mount, so I would have to expose myself to fire to dismount the gun.

My plan involves attaching a ladder rack or tube frame (both front and back) to the truck and then having the UK facing forwards and the RPK facing rearwards. The traverse and elevation range would be harmed but there would be more room for men, since the center of the bed is now freed. There would also be no need for sand bags to stop the recoil as the rack wouldn't move like the mount does. Two or even three men could sit in the central area between the two gunners. Overall, what do you think I should do to improve the concept?

Russia military

How is Russia even military relevant in the world? Their economy is trash and their tech is horrible. It is truly an amazing thing that they are still a major player in world militarizes today. They must be the most militarist country, of size, in the world, since they have nothing but their military going for them. The resources are good, but resource based economies are not strong anymore.

Cartel raiding a rival mechanic shop

So, they certainly won the engagement by all means, but what went wrong and what went right? And how would you defend against this kind of attack?

Whatever enemy they were facing, they weren't able to counter anything of the attacker, which makes them lucky.

They should have while the supressive fire is still ongoing, have their spiclets dismount and immediately go into the compound as staying in their vehicles for this long could have spelled disaster for them were the enemy to be in better shape.

To defend against this kind of attack would be intelligence, a guy standing somewhere on the streets which go toward the compound with means to communicate that there is a bunch of bandidos incoming.

I say this as you can't have armed guards standing around on the rooftops, the authorities would notice and take you on.

Those are my thoughts on that, it looked like a slaughter. If the defenders would have any means of defence the attackers would have been in serious trouble.

First Handgun Ideas?

So, recently I've become old enough to purchase a handgun and I'm looking for some advice on a good model. Right now a few that I like are

>M9 (of course)

>XD(M)

>P320-M17

Any thoughts on what I should try as my first? I want something that'll last a good few years and preferably either 9mm, .380, or .40

Also I'm not very much an expert on handguns at all so any advice on parameters like ergonomics, consistent firing, sights, durability, etc. is much appreciated anon
