1. Do you own (a) vehicle(s)? What is it?
2. Do you own (a) fun(z)? What do you own?
3. How would you combine your funz and car in a SHTF scenario?
Where to find one that is good for both killing and cutting things, is made from high quality steel that won't break or shatter when prying, holds an edge well and is easy to sharpen.
full-tang or folding accepted (as long as the lock mechanism is sturdy and can withstand explosions, small arms fire, etc)

my wife broke her glock. how the fuck do you break a block? i have a 10mm cartridge wedged in the barrel, it's a squib maybe, the primer has been struck. i tried to get it out with pliers, no luck. it's hammer and screwdriver time
generic glock 20 but related, it's the exact same in question. no question actually, just postin

How cheap will thermal get in the next 2 to 5 years?
Not very. It took nearly 50 years for gen 1 NV stuff to drop below $1K and thermals are only really coming into their element now. Unless you mean low-res low-ref trash like Torrey pines viewers, which are basically childrens toys.

Im stuck in upstate NY and I am seriously considering getting a setup like this
The stock does have a certain cyberpunk look that I like but the funny thing about the SAFE act compliant stuff is it actually makes it harder to reach the goddamn safety
I've been conceal carrying a commander sized 1911 for about two years now, I'm getting kinda tired of trying to conceal such a (fairly) big gun since I always have to dress around it.
I started looking looking at both pic related and glock 26. Only hangup I'm having is moving away from a more traditional safety on a gun, to just the passive safeties that the glock has.
Anyone have any experience in general with the glock "safe action" system, or just moving from carrying a 1911 to a glock?
The Glock "safe action" works in that the gun will not go off unless the trigger is being pulled. The firing pin is blocked and the striker isn't cocked when the trigger is forward. So it's basically impossible for the gun to "just go off." Safe use is up to you not pulling the trigger. The Glock trigger is fairly long and deliberate, which makes it harder to pull unintentionally. Really, your holster is your safety. A mechanical safety is just a crutch, the gun should shoot when you pull the trigger.
I went from a 1911 to an XD, which is similar enough to a Glock in that it doesn't have an external safety, just a grip safety that will definitely get me killed.
Just be careful when holstering your gun, and practice your draw in clothes you would normally wear. Carrying a smaller pistol is definitely worth the change though.
>A mechanical safety is just a crutch
Yea I've been trying to shift my mentality to that. Hard to go from 'Cocked and Locked' to 'Cocked and ready to blast'. That said, I'm more than willing to spend money on a quality holster, so that's no problem.
What do you mean it'll get you killed? Not quality grip safety?
I just purchased my first firearm. I'm sure experts like yourselves don't need me to specify, but it's a Glock 19 Gen 4.
Two things: 1) Did I do good? and
2) What modifications on this gun are in your opinion essential?
P-please be gentle
Steel sights. The Glock-branded ones are fine.
Extended slide release lever, I like the Tangodown/Vickers model
Smooth Glock 17 trigger (for me, I don't like the serrations, if you like it then disregard)

Class of two ships before the rest were cancelled.
Not a real assault ship, can't launch amphibious assaults as it has no welldeck.
At 50,000 tonnes as big as the CdG or other nations fleet carriers yet no ramp to support the superior numbers of F-35b's it can carry..
The whole point of the America class was to have a larger capacity hanger for parts, fuel and everything else needed for increased aviation operations.
Realising they made a huge mistake they've changed the design for LHA-8 and onwards.
Pick at least one, if not both.
But neither? What's the point.

Fucking hell, this is too accurate.
Shit, if Nova Scotia got put in charge of making it, it would start off in planning rivaling anything the US has, and by the time it's done be at triple the original budget and still only end up like what's in OP's post.
And then we'd be shelling out half the province's GDP to keep it from sinking in port, since it wouldn't be able to do anything.

How the fuck do you guys learn shit about guns and brands so fast?
The only way I can learn information is to read it twice, read it a third time while writing down key points, and then read through those once more. Then MAYBE I'll remember 95% of it for future reference.
You guys seem to read an article about an experimental weapon or military conflict like one time and then remember every detail forever.
What went right? Why is it superior to Admiral Kuznetsov and its sister ship, Liauning?
We saw how bad the Kuznetsov is and Liauning is pretty much a chinese copy of a Kuznetsov
Yes quite the ship my curry friend. In excellent condition as well, even the toilets look like they've never been used.
>even the toilets look like they've never been used.
I decided to make this thread since I noticed there are quite a few uninformed folk on this "weapons" board. This is an accurate depiction of the Sten MK2. Please Sticky this so that we can decrease clutter in the catalog and discuss more serious matters such as military experiences.

How do you wear your boots /k/? Bloused, unbloused, half laced? What kind of boots do you suggest for what purpose? Reliable brands?
I use boot bands. Black is the strongest, not trying to trigger anyone, but the green bands they isdue to us are shit and loose tgeir elasticity faster for some reason and begin to unravel the yarn twist.
How common is hunting with semi autos? Other than hogs it doesn't seem to be too common?
I know a ton of people locally that get their deer with semi autos. The problem is that they weigh and cost more and that accuracy can be an issue for longer shots.
TL;DR bolt actions are cheaper, lighter, and far more common in hunting calibers.
>gee anon, you're not going to let Russia steam roll my country, are you?
How can the Baltic states defend themselves from Russia? It seems like Russia could steam roll them in 48 hours if they wanted to and that NATO/US forces there only make them more of a target. Wouldn't remaining neutral be in the Baltic states' best interests? So I guess in short, what do you guys think is the best strategy to defend the Baltics?
Join NATO: you have a chance at being self autonomous if russia attacks and nato wins. Its also a deterrent to russia attacking you.
Stay neutral: No deterrent, no chance at final victory.
No, its not in their best interest to stay neutral. Ukraine was neutral.
A friend of mine's great grandfather just died. While helping his dad go through his stuff, he found an MP-40. The great grandfather was in the Battle of the Bulge but never told anyone in his family that he brought a gun back. I can't find any proof that it's registered. What should my friend do?
read the stic/k/y and I thought this might be somewhat of an interesting topic
I got into pic related a coupla months ago for entertainment purposes, like to take it camping and shine it at stuff [safely] (/sci/fag).
I also own an SKS but that's besides the point.
My question is, would this be a feasible defensive tool?
I was recently nearly mugged at knife point because I don't live in the nicest of areas and had to run.
The particular laser I have pulses just over 3W of power which can effectively blind someone for life at over 100 yards/meters, but can be dilated or 'unfocused' to a """nonlethal""" wavelength.
In terms of effectiveness, how suitable would something like this work at engaging someone from a distance.
Or does the risk outweigh the benefit?
another thing that I should mention is that anyone who uses these things for shining at aircraft or automobiles should do the world a huge favor and shine it in their eyes point blank
AND ONE more thing, when I say "effectively blinding someone at over 100 yards/meters" this literally entails briefly passing it over someone or something's eyes for a fraction of a second
