What does /k/ think of the Australian Navy? Its been going through a major upgrade lately, of course to compete with China and other south east asian countries. From what I can gather, australias forces are pretty small but high quality https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procurement_programme_of_the_Royal_Australian_Navy
>>28048999 >How effective are modern anti-missile defenses?
Most threat profiles are handled pretty well, both ballistic and aerodynamic, both subsonic and supersonic.
Subsonic saturation attacks (unless completely overwhelming) have also been something that can now be handled as most modern radars have moved to active phased arrays (APAR, Poliment, AMDR) and can handle more uplinks.
The type of threat that we have very little experience with is something called "Threat... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Farbeit from me to be pedantic, but am I the only one who hates hearing the new buzzword "active shooter"? What exactly is an INactive shooter? This new word is as vague as it is redundant. Since every shooter is, by definition, active, the word can tell us nothing important about the shooter.
If there were no other choice, what kind of icebreaking capabilities would an aircraft carrier have? Would it be able to punch through some ice shelves, or would its hull just get torn to shreds on the first pass?

Currently looking to either buy or rent a different property. Current landlord doesn't want a safe bolted into 2 immovable surfaces - and there's no where I know of in WA that let's you store your funs.
Looking at an Enfield, full stock if I can find one for reasonable. I'll settle for a sporterised at this point though.
What gun are you currently waiting to get licensed /k/angaroos? >Just picked up my Mauser K98 today
What have you shot recently? >Took all the guns down to a friends place who just finished his high school certificate, Mag dumped (as well as you can) with a Nugget, .22, air gun and Double barrel shotgun
Have you got an adler yet? No I keep spending my money on milsurp guns
Anybody on /k/ know where to get a hold of black powder caps, either #11 or #10, and either genuine black powder or substitute (it really doesn't matter) in the southern california area? Apparently it's next to impossible to find, I haven't tried contacting any small gun stores yet to see if they might have it, but any major retailer doesn't carry the primers.
Bass Pro Shop has 209 Primers, but that's as close as it gets. I'd much rather just buy enough for 100 rounds at a time than have to order the 1000 from cabelas and pay a $20 shipping... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>28048585 Fuck it I just did it. Fair warning to any other californianons that decide to get a black powder revolver. Any experienced bp shooters know how long these caps will last stored properly?
I got a couple hundred extra rounds and some pyrodex as well so I'll get to have a nice long rage day whenever these come in, but I really have no idea how long it will take me to go through 1000 caps.
Apparently there are some places to get genuine black powder out in LA, but fuck going out there. I'll pay... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is so often overlooked as people choose scattergats for home defense. The ability to cover someone with a gun while calling for help is invaluable. Consider that speakerphone may be difficult to use after shooting inside without hearing protection.
>>28048402 Wear one of those rubber bedrolls that try sell for kids who wanna go to slumber parties but piss themselves. You will be insulated against the attack and if you aren't, at least you won't get piss everywhere
With automated rifle manufacturing offering guns FAR more accurate than anything in the past, for lower prices
with the advent of better glass manufacturing tech overseas, and optics with much better features (FFP etched reticles, repeatable adjustments, large tubes, etc.) being available and affordable, we are in a golden age of long range shooting for the average consumer.
ended up getting a Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50 for my elcan with a trade. sure its in MOA but I can deal with that. it's gunna go on my new Remington 700 with the 16.5" barrel, still debating whether I want a Magpul Hunter stock. MDT chassis, or a McMillan
>>28048429 i love seeing people with money spending it on firearms. so god damn sick of poorfags.

hey /k, my dads buddy emptied some crap out of his garage and gave me a bunch of his old reloading stuff, he says he doesnt have the time to do it anymore. it looks like a bunch of bullets, some shells, a press? and some black powder. all i have to do is fill up the case and use the press to put a bullet in, right? pic related is the kind of press he gave me
Lucky bastard Look up some how to videos on youtube and get at least one reloading handbook (Like this one http://www.amazon.com/Hornady-Handbook-Cartridge-Reloading-Emery-ebook/dp/B00HZUXWNA/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1448947918&sr=8-6&keywords=handloading) before you blow yourself up anon
