Not sure where else to ask this, so I'll try here. I broke my hand a month ago and had the cast taken off yesterday. I also turned 21 and bought my first carry pistol a few days after I broke it. I've been dying to shoot it but should I wait a few more weeks before I go to the range?
Find a flaw. You can't.
What would a modern prop fighter look like?
I was surprised to read the Super Tucano's specs and find out that it would get completely BTFO by any late-war piston fighter in a gunfight.
What could we do with modern aerodynamics and turboprops to build a hypothetical evolution of a WWII fighter?
If we had to come up with an actual role for it, a helicopter-killer would probably be the most practical one.
But really, it's a totally hypothetical situation that doesn't have any real-world utility. Imagine that it's some kind of world where jets and missiles didn't take off, but turboprops did, and we have all of our other modern aircraft tech.
So what will the Canadian government say if they do pick the F-35 again? Should Lockheed even bother selling them the plane to them after all the grief they caused?
>In a conference call from Erbil in northern Iraq today, Harjit Sajjan said replacing the nation’s 77 Boeing CF-18A/Bs in a “timely manner” is his focus, not ruling a particular aircraft in or out.

Russia has not yet agreed, this is only MiG saying they need a new interceptor and they are willing to provide it.
It's like McDonald Doglas saying you need B-3 bomber so we will make you one.
Anyone down to SQUAD?
What do police forces do when their country is invaded? Are they expected to stay and fight, or do they just follow the civvies in any evacuations and let the armies deal with it?
Evacuate civilians and help with relief efforts, as well as continuing their normal policing duties.
If the situation necessitated increased security details for VIPs and important facilities, they might also be drafted for that, although it would likely still be the military running things.
I doubt you'd see police officers in actual combat, unless the country was truly on the ropes and every able-bodied man was being sent to the front. Even in a total war scenario with conscription, police officers are unlikely to see combat (discounting reservists who...

Hello /k/. I am looking for an affordable .357 revolver that doesn't suck scrotum. I have a budget of up to 450 US dollars, and would prefer something at least somewhat reliable. Please toss me some suggestions. I dislike snub noses.
get a police trade in Model 10 if you want a .38
Great guns for less than 400 as long as you dont mind holster wear
as for .357
Ruger GP100 of S&W 586 / 686
Im looking at getting one of these 2, leaning towards the 586
I have been thinking, is there any dead historical figures who would have been loved by /k/. Do we have a few historical figures who would be honorary /k/ommandos. I nominate Mad Jack Churchill because he was a total badass.
I wish more people knew about this guy, he was such a genuine person while being more operator than vining
Anyone shoot USPSA, IPSC, Steel Challenge? Any and all competition shooting goes here.
Quick question, if a MTF tranny was entered into a 3 gun match, would they shoot women's or men's division? What if they were post hrt and have titties, but still swing a bat?
I feel like they would have to shoot male division and would get a ton of crap, but on the other hand, we do let the French compete.
I shoot IDPA. Want to try USPSA, but there isn't a club near me.
I'm not too familiar with USPSA rules, but I don't think there are gender divisions. I know IDPA doesn't have them. If there are, then at a local low-level match it would probably be up to how tolerant the locals are of being trans. At a big time match, no idea.
Specified 3gun, pretty sure they are male/female divisions.
I guess the best option would be contacting the organization directly, who makes the rules?
No, just wondering
But I like swords. Am I not wanted on /k/?
Nah. Yer cool.
You may be LESS wanted, but /k/ is weapons, not guns. If you're interested in the use of swords, not just the swords themselves, you may want to check the HEMA threads on /asp/ as well.
Where can i get bulk 7.62x54r online???
So we are all in Agreement then?
Seriously, how can you justify having such a long cumbersome efficiently designed rifle when you can have a tactical bullpup?
Ejecting round close to your face is pretty dumb in design. And most of us were trained on non-bullpup rifles so it would seems weird to hold one, let alone shoot one accurately.
The brass in the face can be solved by a brass deflector, which you can buy aftermarket for many bullpups for like, $15. And your obsolete training is not a reason to continue using obsolete technologoy.
I love my bullpups too but...well I'm left handed so that doesn't really work out very well
I'm looking into a cheap optic for an SKS scout build. Can /k/ recommend one?
Went through the gun stores today and put on a Bersa Thunder 380 on layaway.
What do you guys think about this for a first gun? I liked it because it is close in operation to the beretta 92fs (my first pistol when I joined the military) and it looks like James Bond's gun
But I am not sure if I should switch to a 9mm due to ammo cost of the 380 or if there are any other guns that I should consider. Let me know waht you guys think especially if you guys have had a Bersa thunder or similar compact pistol.
There is nothing wrong with them other than the magazine disconnect. Ditch that shit as soon as you get it home.
If you plan to plink with it you can switch to a 9mm but in my opinion I dont really go plinking with a 380. I practice with it and carry it.
I checked out YT and its just a small C spring that needs to be removed to allow that magazine disconnect to work. What would be the advantages of not having a magazine disconnect?
