Can anyone ID the knife in pic related? Google gave me nothing
Texan here, to me carrying less than three gallons in the summer is dumb if you're not around fresh water.
Could it be because they're always around snow? Or do they have more hidden in their anus?
If I make 37mm shells and fill them with binary explosive at the range before shooting them is that a DD?
My own of course. Still need to figure out if rimfire exploding targets are sensitive enough to work. Might post a project thread in the future.
You're Chief of Staff of Turkey's armed forces. Assuming NATO will sit this one out, how do you win conventional war against Russia?
Preemptive strike at Crimean naval base?
Attack their expeditionary corps in Syria?
Just close the straits and go full defensive mode?
Do people actually use scoped handguns or is it just a video game meme?
They don't seem practical at all. If you want improved accuracy wouldn't you just use a rifle?
Hunting revolvers use scopes, handguns with scopes would be retarded anywhere outside of hunting, so the fact they allow you to put scopes in your video games is just for "muh so much content!"
For a range toy, where you have a stable table/ bench, sand bags, and various rests to settle the gun on... YES, a pistol with a scope can be very accurate, in the right hands, and it's a lot of fun. I am curious how accurate a snub nose can be. A lot of people defend the belief that barrel has ZERO affect on accuracy. So I'd like to see how a 8" .357 compares to a 2" .357, while being shot as accurately as possible.
I know, it's hard to think about. It's easier to look up a ballistic chart to remind yourself. Also, is calibers the right word? Last last, I said cartridges and all these fags corrected me.
My list is easy
To be fair, I think it should be "How many different calibers of cartridges have you shot".
Just "cartridges" doesn't specify the difference in calibers, and just "calibers" perpetuates the common misconception that a caliber is a cartridge in and of itself.
>tfw yuo realize kanuk devance us to MiG-25
Just got my hands on a beautiful 7.26x45 VZ52. Mostly matching serials, but a perfect barrel/bore and stock. looks like it was never fired (I know that it probably was). Anyway I've been finger-fucking this beauty for a few hours now, sooooo....
You get lucky
Good find OP, that wood is fucking beautiful. Not an easy feat with 52s
/MEG/ Military Enlistment General
Before you ask a question, check the FAQ
Which branch are you enlisting/enlisted/considering?
Ask questions, answer questions, bitch about Air Force recruiters. Just keep it contained to this general.
The amount of prospective recruits who give a huge shit about what the dress uniform looks like is fucking astounding.
We do our best to wear that shit as little as possible, regardless of service. It should be, like, fiftieth on your list of priorities.
I'm considering going either 35Q or P in the army, or CTN or CTI in the Navy, and I have a few questions.
1. Of the two branches, what are the pros and cons? Is one just outright better for these positions?
2. Which of the four MOS's translates better to civilian life? I've narrowed it down to Q / P for the army, but I haven't done as much research on the Navy, so if another MOS other than what I listed is better, insight would be appreciated.
3. If I join the Navy, would I be stationed on a ship or state-side? Ideally I'd like to live off...

Why are you into weapons and militaries, /k/?
Me personally because I'm a little autistic. Weapons are very cool, thoroughly engineered mechanical systems that will trigger my autism.
And they're fun to shoot
Because pic related gives me an erection.
Evening /k/, was wondering if I could get a gas piston vs DI thread going?
I'm building my first AR, and completed my lower last night. Now, (amongst many other decisions) I'm trying to decide if a gas piston is worth shelling out for.
The purpose of this build is first and foremost to have something for self defense/SHTF gun (call me a paranoid, I just don't like the way things are going these days). But, I do plan on taking it to the range for a bit of fun/practice every other week or so.
With all off that in mind, reliability and lightness...

>But I can't find any info on why that would be
carrier tilt. pistons can push the bolt carrier back at an angle (whereas a DI system would not) and the bolt carrier ends up contacting the bottom of the buffer tube
>I want to know how to fix my gun if it breaks
Gas pistons arent standardized for AR pattern rifles, each company makes their own piston/springs etc all proprietary and non interchangable. So no, for an end of the world SHTF gun you don't want a fucking piston AR. Just buy a DI gun, it lets you use any standard bolt carrier group and gas tube that you can find at literally any gun store in America.
tl;dr: want a piston? get an AK
Piston ARs are a solution looking for a problem. Doing nothing while creating a dozen extra problems that weren't exactly there before.
Enjoy your added weight, cost, premature part wear and breakage, and more for absolutely no benefit. Assuming you go with a piston operated gun.
Is the Browning Hi Power obsolete?
>hi-cap box mags
>single- and dual-action configurations
>reliable as fuck
>still used by many mil forces & civilians
Nope, it definitely is not.
>Looks like a cheap CZ-75 knockoff.
thoughts? is this viable training?
Can someone help me indentify where are these insignias from? I want to buy the corresponding hat to go with this jacket.
Sorry for make this post here, /r/ = porn everywhere.
Ok /k/omrades, what is better? Brown bear in 7.62x39 or golden tiger in 7.62x39? Also is golden bear worth the extra money? What does it bring to the table?
I like golden golden tiger more. Its got a boat tail bullet so its a little more accurate. Its lacquer coated rather than polymer. I also have shot both and there's less to clean from a barrel when shooting golden tiger. Just my experience though.
Lacquer coated cases are best IMO
Sealed at bullet and primer for max resistance to elements
Fast yawing, and longer boat tail bullet
No muzzle flash I've seen, bear can be massive
More accurate for me at least
Knocks back bolt more softly for me
saw someone link to this thing on facebook, a fitting around your glock that converts it to a carbine. What's the legality of something like this? Wouldn't it technically turn it into an SBR?
Also I'm inclined to believe something like this just wouldn't work as advertised or might just be shit in general, but damned if it isn't a cool idea at least
