The design of guns isn’t what matters but the idea of long distance combat with the potential to kill an enemy soldier in a matter of a single to few hits in the right areas.

This revolution of war to be centered around staying as far away as possible from enemy troops made large scale battles pretty much obsolete in most wars today as being seen can often come with worse consequences than simply being executed with the potential for entire squads and bases to become doxed, along with the fact that more troops and weapons != to more success in combat especially when both or more armed groups in modern wars possess weapons that pretty much instakill with dozens to hundreds of these weapons like armour piercing bullets available per troop.

Coupled with the introduction of the radar briefly during the pacific battles against imperial Japan really began to amplify the importance of staying away from conflict in order to spare the lives of soldiers, equipment and weapons and to this day most of the real combat in wars is done via trying to collect as much information on what a states security threats have and are planning.

>Drones are the next big leap
only against opponents that lack air power, pretty much any air-force would be able to shredder drones in masses.

This is only tangentially related , but crossbows might make a comeback with advanced materials. Not actually as a bow, but as a rifle with a spring in it. Material-science advances suggest that two or three orders of magnitude in spring tension is possible. That's enough for a low power rifle suitable for wildlife protection and hobby shooting. The spring made from speculative future-science-material is compressed with manual labor input and released by a heavy trigger. And the result will be a powder-less rifle that makes a loud clicking and clanking noise but no exploding powder bang, that will be safer to operate.


>pretty much any air-force would be able to shredder drones in masses.
How's anti-drone technology/strategy/doctrine being developed? Genuinely curious as drones seem (to me) as the be-all and end-all of modern asymmetric warfare, specially after Nagorno-Karabakh.

Hell, i remember hearing that even advanced countries such as China and Russia had trouble problems with it.


It’s hard to build anti drone tech because
They’re made from reflective material that can’t be detected with most radars
They’re small as shit intentionally to be hard to hit
They’re fast as fuck and hit their targets with absolute precision

These factors make trying to battle against drone an uphill conflict


>This revolution of war to be centered around staying as far away as possible from enemy troops made large scale battles pretty much obsolete

Lol just look at Stalingrad and compare the losses on the eastern front to the total size of Napoleon's army.

Can soldiers shoot cops of the enemy? Is this mentioned in the Geneva Conventions?
2 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Journalists should be considered combatants and legitimate targets in war.


For the purposes of the Geneva Convention police count as noncombatants as long as they're not, you know, being combatants.

Journalists should be shot on sight, war or not.

No, that's another meme. This one is called the soyjak.


Under international law, any combatant can be engaged as an enemy. If police fight in a war, they can be shot. However you can't just go around massacring cops if they aren't fighting.
That's not true. Police in most countries are legally civilians. In common law states, the power of arrest comes from the ancient right to bring an accused criminal before a court. In the US, cops are basically just a privileged class of civilians who get access to cool guns and the ability to get away with murder.

3D printed DIAS is infinitely more reliable than coat hanger.

Good thing you can pck up more from mobs in minecraft


this thread is making me feel dumb

yes the name is dumb, just swallow your pride and do it
or drill a third hole but fuck that noise I'm not a gunsmith

in all cases please make sure to buy an H3 buffer and adjust your gas so that your full auto is nice and smooth and doesn't result in ejection problems from going too fast

I'm actually thinking of researching mental illness in relation to gun violence as a med student just to show people that it's not the damn gun. fuck, I plan on marrying a burger just so I can get that citizenship and that sweet tax stamp for a can.


Based lol. you can just make your own can illegally tho and use it as a flower vase or whatever if you need to hide it. I have seen some that are just as quiet as commercial cans so you can have a literally silent rifle with a bolt action 22 with susonics and ur can and it will hit and kill (your animals) within 200 yards iirc.


i have a family member that brings up "gun facts" they learned in poly-sci back in thcci e 80s, like "households with guns are more likely to have gun deaths" like yeah and houses with bathtubs are more likely to have people die of drownings. they are terminally fukuyama brained and unable to imagine any reason to weigh the short term benefits of saving an exrta hundred or so people a year with the long term implications of consolidating power in a governing body that changes hands every couple years.

i have found that with a 26" barrel cci quiet .22 are noticeably quieter than my pellet gun, great for small game hunting in places where you don't want to upset the neighbors, but i wouldn't try using it at 200 yards as it drops of hard after 50y like 1 foot at 80 and 2 feet at 100


>terminally fukuyama brained
stealing that one


>SU-16F out of stock everywhere


Aesthetic gun sounds.


Glock cleaning



why does this cartridge even exist? you’d think recoil that heavy would be a dealbreaker for a handgun


you need thick manly wrists to wield guns made for shooting elephants


i don't wanna shoot elephants that's fucking barbaric

Biden has proposed measures to restrict home built firearms. I personally find this concerning, as the ability to produce firearms would be a boon to any communist militia or similar group. Yes, I know there are other ways to produce firearms and with enough people and money, an organized militia could do it legally even if such a ban passes by getting a license to manufacture firearms, or by forging receivers themselves.

All that being said, the ban seems like a nothingburger: the proposed restrictions, as far as I know, would only ban "build and shoot" kits that come with all the parts needed. Pawn shops and gun stores would also be required to serialize unserialized guns that are sold to them. So basically there is not going to be an outright ban on 80% receivers, you would just have to buy the parts separately. Thoughts?

hello Agent Kochinski
I've bought parts separately before. The part kits referred to in the bill are ones that include the 80% lower, not just miscellaneous parts kits. For example, I bought an 80% lower and a jig, then the upper receiver and barrel, then a small parts kit, then a buffer tube and spring. It was actually cheaper than buying a complete build kit, and would still, to my knowledge, be legal with the proposed reforms.


Guys on fosscad don't seem worried so I'm not worried. They'd be shitting and farting if it was worth worrying about.


I don't even watch him or follow anything about him so fuck off with your non arguments.


you too

I don't have guns because it's illegal and family are anti-gun, but I did shoot an AK-47 and a Mosin Nagant when overseas. Shit was fun. (yes it was before becoming a socialist im not a lifestylist lmao) Bolt actions are just plain fun, more involved.

Pic unrelated; I have no guns

The thing about nukes is you destroy everything in one indirect rough area hit. Fuck you don't even need to hit a target just airbust it. Think of how much work goes into the hyper-sonic cruise missiles to fire, control, directly precisely hit a single building.
The cities that are "ruined" have taken thousands of artillery shells, rockets, drones, jet airstrikes, chopper attacks, cruise missiles, mortars, shoulder fired rockets, tanks, grenades, MLRS strikes to just turn some buildings into rubble.

With a nuke, you just land a hit roughly around the area and everything is destroyed. Water, sanitation, food, farming, houses, apartments, energy, government buildings, television, hospitols, stores, pretty much everything is absolutely fucking burned to shit, and then covered with lots of nuclear fallout continuing to burn everything for years. the air is unbreathable, water undrinkable.
There is no winning for any nation that gets into a nuclear war. All heavily armed nuclear superpowers have emergency doomsday contingency plans so even if a first strike is effective against them, they have enough firepower hidden to launch retaliatory strikes from submarines, even nuclear torpedoes, possibly shipping containers smuggled into ports with nukes inside of them. Even without the nukes they have enough radiological materials to wage a horrific dirty bomb war with radioactive materials in conventional weapons.

There is no winning with nuclear war. It would destroy all nations involved, and in the case with Israel, they vow to use a Sampson option to destroy every city they can in the entire middle east and take them all down with them.

Mutually Assured Destruction was supposed to be a deterrent, not a scenario to enact.

>tfw will probably never own and AK
Unironically the 2nd amendment is probably the only thing I'm jealous about the US. Americans of /AKM/, cherish it. It genuinely has so much value and it bothers me so much that almost no other country on Earth is even close to the US when it comes to lax gun laws.

Why is the soundtrack in this Army training video so bumping? Everything from that error was funky smooth.


Teetering rotors are a cheap design and a bad choice for military helicopters. Only American military helicopters like the UH-1 used it. This is because military helicopters fly low and when climbing over the top of ridges (like in this video) they enter low G and can have mast bumping. This problem is solved with fully articulated rotors.


Jazz Fusion was popular during 70s and was progressively being refined in the 80s til smooth Jazz would develop in the 90s.

Lefty Handgun General
Finally bought my first handgun edition. Fingered every handgun they had in stock but this one had a nice fit in my hand and wasn't too pricey. Did I do good akm?

I have a P365XL for everyday carry. It's basically a straight upgrade to the Glock 19 in terms of size and concealability without getting into literal pocket pistol territory.


I was thinking about edc but I've seen too many webms of Glock leg. Should I try carrying with an empty chamber until I get over it?
