Was this guy a spook?
>squadmates that he was weird. "We thought he was a spy or something."
>"wanders" away from a US military base in the middle of Afghanistan--possible exfiltration gone wrong?
>US negotiates for his release for over FIVE years, rather than just letting him die in captivity with no one none the wiser
>US government trades 5 hostages for him
Something ain't right with the official line here bros.
There was a cover up from the beginning about it. Men from his unit have come forward and said (paraphrasing here) "The Pentagon made us sign non-disclosure agreements, promising we won't say anything about him walking away or us trying to get him back, lest we face a discharge."
That said, I don't think he was a spy or a gov. agent or something. I think obummer just wanted to look like he cares about the troops so much, that he's willing to trade 5 terrorist leaders for a PFC. And...

>And his administration is unwilling to go full force on a court martial because then obama would have to admit he dun fucked up.
He is facing full court martial though and potentially faces life in prison.
Just bought a Ruger SR9c today for $250. Heard nothing but positive reviews. I'm sure /k/ has some opinions. Whatcha think guys?
It's starting, snow accumulation measuring in the feet. Time to hunker down, and guard the homestead. Be safe, I'll be here until the falling trees taken down the internet.
Who getting ready to /help/ others if the need arises?
I have firewood if I need to bring it to the highway I'm near.
I'm pissed I didn't buy a tank, but it's okay. There's always next snowpacalypse.
/k/ do you think airborne operations are still viable in today's military environment?
I'm airborne and I think it's a waste of fucking time, as does just about every other Joe in my battalion. The only people who love this shit are jumpmasters and the battalion commander.
(I do like my 150$ though...)
Sure. And I was an 0311.
What are you trying to do here? Seek validation for your job. Shut up shower shoe it all sucks. And only the lifers enjoy it, that's why they are still there.
Glider operations would be viable, as they don't spread people out over miles, and allow you to deliver armor with the troops.
Airborne operations as they currently exist in the US military are just a dated waste of money/lives.
But that's true with a lot of US doctrine, they half ass on everything because "muh air power will win the war".
Just shut up and stay current or get cool with whoever fills out the logs and just pencil push a few jumps.
It's pretty fun to break the daily routine to go jump. I like it man shacking shoots isn't even that bad either just shake your shoot and fuck off the rest of the day.
Ordered one, and hopefully GSG's 9mm MP40 will get approved.
>tfw GSG 9mm MP40
Oh Jesus I'm waiting for this to happen any day but at the same time I'm fine with it taking forever because I can't fucking afford this shit
>ITT: we poorly describe guns and other anons guess them
>It's a .308 AR but it's not an AR-10
>an AK in 7.62×54R made by gypsies
Just picked up my package from my anon!!!
Also for everyone that hasn't gotten an email reply yet, I'll be sending out emails this weekend to clear up any issues participants had or anyone that got mismatched/burned.
>thermal for $600
Welp, I know where my tax return is going.
What is /k/ spending theirs on?
What is the best easy to make homemade silencer/suppressor?
Hypothetically speaking of course, and filling out a form 1.
What would be the standard issue weapons of your armed forces? For example, Astrachia:
>M16 platform standard issue for all branches
>All branches have their signature weapon
>Army uses FN SCAR Mk. 17
>Federal Marine Corps uses M16A4 (instead of A3 and A1)
>Navy uses the HK416
>Air force uses the SA80
There's more details though, I can elaborate if asked
Standard weapon: Mosin Nagant
Standard DMR/snipe: PU sniper
Standard machine gun: Several mosin's taped together
Standard pistol: Obrez
Standard camo: Naked body covered with cosmoline
what does the x39 (in the 7.62x39) and the x45 (in 5.56x45) mean?
Explain to me why a nation with little resources can't just buy a few hundred fast speedboats, pack them with explosives and fit a 40mm bofors to the front and charge at this thing?
Zigzagging towards it spraying the superstructure with 40mm rounds and eventually slamming against the side detonating the explosives on board.
It's happened before. USS Cole iirc? Supposedly, might have been a false flag.
Anyway maybe they'd get away with it once as a surprise attack but its not a sustainable war tactic. Once the squids are wise to it they'll adjust their tactics and speedboats get fucked.
How the fuck do they think these things work? Why is it that these uneducated, excuse my vernacular, retards, are the people dictating what we are or are not allowed to do?
ITT: Liberal Idiotardisms.
OP, I have an answer to all of their problems.
I can sort of understand it. I'm thinking the thought process is that the very bottom of the round is nothing but propellent, and when it's struck, the entire metal part is sent forward. Essentially, the brass and the slug would be a single part.
Well, is it possible that they could pull this off? Because by the looks of it (especially the European territories) it could be done.
They have enough forces.
What attachments should i get for my glock?
