lmao, classic


>Flea Market Socialist
AFAIK the SRA still doesn't have that kind of influence, unfortunately. The one gunshow I went to didn't really have any good deals, and from what I've heard, you're probably better off vising a gun store. Did have a fair selection though.

asked in a different thread, but might not get seen so: i intend to complete my higher education, but after that, is it worthwhile to consider the military or at least go into military reserves? i doubt i can give myself a truly equivalent training or mindset and i cant see any other way to give myself adequate, if albeit in all likelihood unnecessary, preparation

i want a smaller 9mm suggestions? something i can stick in a jacket pocket (IN A HOLSTER OF COURSE DIPSHITS) and i also want something with an optics cut because id like to get a red dot eventually.

am considering the hellcat, shield plus, kimber mako and glock 43x. i like the G43x but it seems to really not be much smaller than my 19.

seems like the 43 pretty much renders the 26 obsolete tbh.


glock 43


P365 you fuckin munchkin
Already optics cut and shoots bullets good


American sig can lick my dick and balls.


oh also fondled a G43X at the gun store and not only was it perfect but also they had a model that came with a shield RMSc already installed for a good price.

There’s a reason as to why they’re noticeably slower compared to other forms of transport and it’s because of water and pressure
Water is a polar molecule that uses hydrogen bonding to maintain form which means its boiling point is unsurprisingly high, this means it requires a FUCK TON of energy to move a submarine at conventional velocities, not to mention water pressure increases with depth on top of gravity means a submarine engine needs to produce the force required to overcome the boiling point of water on top of overcoming the gravitational pressure it experiences while being submerged, unsurprisingly this means most submarines are slow as shit and have to be transported with heavier machinery either airborn or at surface level

>not to say these problems aren’t impossible to overcome it’s just that at current rates it’ll take decades
Because nobody is looking to do that, since it has no fucking advantage for submarines at the moment, a torpedo and missile are going to be faster, there is no point to making a submarine go blistering fast any more than already exists.


>Stealth is not nearly as much as a factor as you think it is
Yes it is, the Soviet submarines after the November class had comparable quietness to American ones through the decades. Those that detect the enemy first and remain undetected have the first-strike advantage. It' proven given that the Kilo class "black hole" are a major risk to the American navy including other submarines, and numerous tests using comparable DE boats have proven the viability of DE boats ambushing noisier, bigger targets like nuke boats.
>stealth only matters when your enemy is using passive sonar
Which is most of the time during military sub patrols, you don't reveal your position unless necessary, even in Cat/Mouse games. Obviously speed is also important but neither can be neglected anon.


No it's not, yes passive sonar is what is used 99% of the time but it's an incredibly complicated system that involves matching sound signatures and profiles with limited range, thermal variation, sound quality and and the screws of the ships with the sonar. The loudest Soviet sub was around 150 db, the loudest US sub was around 115 db. A humpback whale is 80 db. The Papa class was 125 db, Alfa 120, Oscar 115, Los Angeles 115, Viktor III 110, Akula 105 db. And yes you're right after the November Soviet subs did get a lot quieter but was never the main priority since positioning was the key above all else. They didn't want to get close to NATO battlegroups, they wanted to speed into range of a force, launch their payloads and get out. Even Soviet SSNs were designed specifically out position NATO SSNs, that meant running deeper, faster and a heavier payload. Stealth with passive sonar only matters if you're trying to sneak up and listen in on someone, but to the Soviets they didn't want to do that. NATO did, because they wanted to tail and follow Soviet subs. And like I said, the Soviets just flipped the table and outranshumanistATO weapons, they could approach full speed at an enemy and there wasn't jack shit they could do to them, they were essentially untouchable. In fact Soviet subs buzzed US subs all the time, often coming close to them, racing ahead, waiting for the US sub to catch up, then racing off again taking them on a wild goose chase. And you have completely avoided active sonar, it's not like radar where its use is coveted, is an enemy wants to protect something you bet your ass they're probably blasting active the whole time. US carrier groups ALWAYS have active on, which again is why the Soviets prefer outranging and outpositioning. And if they wanted to be stealthy, Soviet subs had something called a creep motor which was a little deployable electric screw that floated 50m above the main sub that propelled it at 2 knots and had a noise rating of 20 db. That's what they used when they wanted to be stealthy, diesel boats like the Whiskey and Kilo can't use it as they don't have the energy output for it, but a nuclear sub can.


>diesel boats like the Whiskey and Kilo can't use it as they don't have the energy output for it
because that's essentially the default of their electric motors.
You make an interesting post but you aren't really arguing against me, you don't have to begin every post as "No" and then proceed to post facts that I never even argued against.

Where are you getting ammo? Have you found any good deals online lately? Anything in particular you advise to avoid, or that you recommend?

I will start us off - recently went through about a hundred rounds of norma range and training.
Bought it at a shit price of like $0.50/round because LGS, seems to be available at a more reasonable $0.32/round online.
* grouped ok with no keyholing
* consistently failed to lock the slide back, however, there was no short stroking. could be a skill issue with me holding the slide release down by accident, i'm going to run it with some winchester white box and +P's and see if the issue persists.
overall im still not sure whether this round is good or not, so this is kind of a shit first post, but im hoping it will inspire some conversation+posting on good cheap ammo


forgot to mention - it is the 9mm norma range and training in particular

Thought we should have a caliber discussion since we keep having it in different threads.

Meme response that doesn't really mean anything honestly. Different cartridges have wildly different properties like greater or lower recoil, range, armour penetrative ability, wounding/incapacitating potential, weight, muzzle flash, smoke, audibility, velocity, potential for subsonic chamberings, stability in the air, bullet rise and drop, as well as dirtiness/corrosiveness in the barrel, price, cost/difficulty of manufacturing, availability for purchase/aquirement in different areas and circumstances, legality etc.


Because the DoD and contractors are scam chads who are making a shitty needlessly complex jacket just to cost more money and be harder to produce in addition to likely not being as easy to reload for the civvie market.


what do you guys think about 6.5 creedmoor? I heard that ballistics has it as slightly better than .308 but I wonder if it will stay popular or if it will just be a fad like 6.5 grendel


which caliberussy is the best?


For what application and where or in general?

I know people have a lot to say about the MIC but it tends to overshadow this particular part of it.
I stumbled on this old reddit post and ended up down a rabbit hole due to the dead link in the comment, and it reminded me of Texan gun stores on the border being implicated in the cartel gun trade. Another is there's a pretty expensive AR-15 belt conversion that keeps finding its way into Mexico that I've seen on NarcoFootage. Operation Fast And Furious also needs no introduction.
So just how up to their neck in it are these domestic gun dealers? Are they incompetent, unwitting pawns, or knowingly supplying criminal groups weapons and playing dumb? Are they being enabled by glowies in some grand scheme? Is everyone a glowie but me, the pattern noticer?

I was talking about spikestrips in another thread. Never looked them up before but it seems they are illegal in Texas and probably other states. Of course setting them up on a public road would be highly illegal regardless. So best bet to not get caught would be to set it up with no hope of recovery, but they're kind of expensive for that purpose.

So what would be a more cost effective DIY spikestrip? Maybe slicking the road although that might take a lot of oil. I guess a couple large nails in a 2x4 could potentially do the job although it would probably get smashed after a single car drives over it. Maybe putting screws through a metal pipe would work better.

>How are these things effective at all if you just place them down on a road?
they're not, OP wants to larp as le epic gorilla warfighter(flaming in /alt/)


For one you could rapidly deploy them, for two it blocks the road.

Back to reddit lib faggot.


Just got an idea. You could drill a hole into concrete and then hammer in a stake. Also depending on how tight the tolerance is, that could be extremely hard to get out(I know from personal experience)


Investigate mortars and roadside IEDs as well as canister shot. Investigate remote firing.
Investigate remote surveillance.
This is the future of guerilla warfare.


This video shows another technique, hammer nails in a hose.
Use drones to fly in front of cars and drop them.

I'm not too good with nuclear weapons, but can't you make a nuclear-antimatter gun out of an atom smasher particle accelerator that you can make at home simply out of a Tesla coil, an rf bottle ion source and a vacuum beamline or alternatively you can use a Cockroft-Walton supply to produce the needed reactions, which the Tesla coil is there to help you control the energy. You would need some conductors, semiconductors, lasers and computers to build a freaky Quantum gun that clones each bullet and spits out u235 bullets at rapidfire - all of which are clones of the same bullet via Quantum cloning through the use of a Quantum Circuit. I don't know what the end result will look like but it should be a pretty terrifying weapon that relies on reflection/refraction and lasers to reload from a drum magazine. It conserves lots of energy needed to make large antimatter weapons by cloning one to use the rest.

Anyone better at engineering, mechanics/quantum mechanics and muclear physics feel free to step in. I'm clueless when it comes to this subject.


How much money do you have?
>Scientists claim that antimatter is the costliest material to make.[77] In 2006, Gerald Smith estimated $250 million could produce 10 milligrams of positrons[78] (equivalent to $25 billion per gram); in 1999, NASA gave a figure of $62.5 trillion per gram of antihydrogen.[


You can make a particle accelerator at home. It's called a betatron. It's just everything else involved and making a practical weapon out of it that matters.

This leftypol is intriguing. It seems some people ere being referred to my blogsite from here. I am looking for ways to beat the shadow ban and get some traffic.

My latest act of bloggery, related to warfare, is found at https://yaxls.wordpress.com/2022/08/19/get-ready-for-world-war-two-and-a-half/ I think we are about to have another world war, but it will be a pretty feeble one, as world wars go.

I have other topics, too.
