This is the Devtac Ronin. The company claims that this mask is level IIIA, or, to oversimplify, capable of stopping a 357 SIG or 44 magnum round.
My question is, stopping the round or not, can you even survive that level of energy transfer to your head? Wouldn't it give you a closed head injury?
People more knowledgeable than me, please discuss
>Your unit is overrun by the sheer number of ISIS militants
>you personally put down 8 confirmed KIA's before youre wounded and lapse out of conciousness
>you wake up on your knees with the ISIS war lord preparing to execute you
>Video camera is recording to show the world
what are your last words before a few 7.62 rounds riddle your body?
Don't butt rape me too much
does anyone on /k/ actually have an obrez and would you cc it?
also is it worth the time and money to make or buy one?
Yes I have one.
No, I would not cc it because mine is not "legal" and also because it is still huge.
It was worth the time and money, because I paid $125 for a nugget and then just got drunk on vodka and sawed it up.
For the motherland.
MUH TALON GRIPZ EDITION
should I get the rubberized or granulate for my shield.
Who here will freely admit they would freeze up in a home invasion or otherwise confrontational scenario?
I almost had a fight with my neighbours recently and my heart was beating so hard it felt painful.
Every time I hear something strange at night the first thing I think of is grabbing my black guitar and swinging it by the handle at anything that comes up the stairs.
I know that thing would fuck someone's day up.
/k/ is filled with 2 huge polar opposite userbases
the ones who have actually served in the military (they would presumably not freeze up)
and the ones who go and play militia with their friends in the woods (who presumably would freeze up (inb4 n-no im tacticool))
I've never been in the military. I've trained BJJ and other various martial arts for 10+ years and I've had dozens upon dozens of confrontations with tweakers and crack heads that have stolen from me and my business or are just high as fuck out of their gourds. I've never had to pull my pistol on anyone but once it was close. I like to think I would not freeze up in a home invasion situation.
What's this guy's name again?

Forward Assists....Are they needed for your go-to gun?
My personal opinion is that you will likely never need it and it should be your last option. However, there is the possibility that your gun may get fouled enough to require it or you have to run some shit ammo, in which case it might save your life. It's a must.
>shoot a gun for the first time today
>can't hear anything for about five minutes
>arm/shoulder hurts from shooting it
>constantly dealing with gun jams
How do you guys enjoy this? Am I doing something wrong? I don't want to turn into a nofuns faggot, help me /k/.
>learn to shoulder properly
>don't buy shitty guns
Taiwan has a special need to STOVL aircraft as their runways would likely be bombed by China very quickly if war broke out:
>The AV-8 would fulfill Taiwan’s much-needed vertical and/or short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) requirement. China is expected to destroy Taiwan’s air bases within the first few hours of a war with its estimated 1,400 short-range ballistic missile arsenal and the Harrier’s V/STOL...

Jesus fuck they better not follow through with that idea. Those planes are on their last legs and would be next to useless in any kind of real war.
They should just buy F-35Bs.
What would happen if a fully armed top spec Abrams on an exercise went AWOL and decided to shoot up a city?
How would it be dealt with?
College student anon here.
Was at work and a coworker told me that "to qualify for financial aid, you have to sign up for the draft when you turn 18"
I told him "The fuck you talking about? What do you mean 'Sign up for the draft'?"
He's telling me that to qualify for federal aid in college, you have to sign up for the draft
>He keeps saying DRAFT
So why is it that to allegedly qualify for financial aid, you have to VOLUNTARILY sign up for an INVOLUNTARY service, ie the draft?
>service guarantees citizenship
do it looser
of do you want communism to win ?
