This is what a 6" PVC sparkler bomb strapped to a 5 gallon gas can can do.


2nd vid is what a regular PVC sparkler pipe bomb can do.

Forgive for having a thread based on a 4chan screenshot (bleh) but I would very much like to discuss this topic because matt christman also brought this issue up in one of his vlogs.

soviets and red chinese go full yolo in 1950: what happens?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


I lost the .pdf but there's a US intelligence document from directly after WW2 outright stating the Soviets very well have the capability to overrun Europe to the Atlantic to little or no resistance, but they speculate they're avoiding doing so due to concerns about their capability to hold said territory in the long term.


Remember that most of the anti-axis resistance in Europe at the time were loyal communists. Actually after WW2 the French resistance kept asking the Soviets for permission to revolt. But the Soviets by that point had pretty much abandoned world revolution and were doing what they could to try and maintain peace with the capitalist world.


Pretty much this
While, yes, the Soviets very well could have won the Cold War by heating it up early, you have to remember these are pretty much pipe dreams and alt-history scenarios. Stalin's main concerns at the time were to cuck to the Allies at every turn, not world communism. Even in Eastern Europe, what would later become the Warsaw Pact was more of a proxy zone to secure every potential route into the USSR in case of an invasion.
The way the USSR could have won the Cold War would have been to avoid it entirely along with WW2, if things had gone a little bit different in Warsaw, 1920 we'd be living in a completely different timeline.


>prepare for world war III by 1950

How much could the Soviets do in that time while recovering from the 2nd world war tho?

The question is to win the Cold War so maybe they don't have to sweep all of mainland Europe but just enough to where the Capitalist powers would be weakened and eventually fall, idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


> they get nuked to shit.
In 1950 the USA barely had a couple A-bombs, and the only plane capable of carrying them were special B-29s that had a modified bomb bay. That is in part the reason for initial nuclear attack plans of the USA to be canceled. That's not to mention that the B-29s were fodder for the MiG-15, and the MiG-15 v F-86 air combat had the MiG coming out on top 3/4s of the time. The only problem in the 4chan post is that the USSR itself was not ready to fight a sustained, multi-front war like that, and definitely not China, or is everyone forgetting the impact of WW2 on those 2 countries.

The snipe in the 4chan post about popular front vs united front is ignorant, as the reason popular front got utilized is because most revolutionary states not in the WARSAW Pact were Asian & Latino countries that had markedly lower development and differing culture. The USSR supported grass roots movements across the globe, NATO countriess like the USA, UK & France crushed many like Guatemala, Malaysia, Pakistan and attempted the same in Korea, Vietnam & Cuba.

>after WW2 the French resistance kept asking the Soviets for permission to revolt

> Stalin's main concerns at the time were to cuck to the Allies
His main concerns were to rebuild the country and get it back on its feet, something that a multi-front war was incompatible with. Not to mention that the people were tired of war.

My idea for a shitty gun would be one that fires caseless ammo, but doesn't rely on any powder propellant/primer, just electricity. Perhaps a strong magnetic pull? Electrostatic charge?

They all suck.
Better off using compressed air or black powder if you're going with the most basic firearms possible.

A Gauss Rifle, you're talking about a Gauss Rifle.



a compressed air/propane gas gun might actually work though


you just reinvented the railgun, you fucking genious

Is there anyone who would be willing to do a reading groups about warfare, strategy and tactics at a theory level? and possibly should, can or how could we use these concepts and theories into our own non-kinetic projects and more broadly the class/social war/.
I'd be very interested in this as it will help me grapple with the ideas bettert. We could do it on an easy to anonymously communicate platform and choose a book or theme collectively.


I've got too much on my plate rn
Sorry comrade :(


Sounds very interesting to me. I may wish to join in a few months time. Thank you for the offer anon.

Weapons are often the subject of criminal law and of surveillance. There are many people in situations where it is within their, or our, interest to be armed, but being caught with a weapon would be incriminating.

Three of the solutions of this are:
>hiding the existence of the weapon (generally ineffective if they are aware you may possess weapons, could be effective if no-one is doing a thorough search)
>hiding the purpose of weapon (obfuscation: think of a walking cane with a weapon concealed within. Probably ineffective if they know what they are looking for or are doing a thorough search)
>plausible deniability: having a believable excuse for possessing the weapon, or its components, at least if not in extreme amounts ("I have ammonium nitrate to fertilize my plants", "I have potassium nitrate as stump remover and sugar as a cooking ingredient", "I have petroleum in plastic cans from when fuel prices skyrocketed", "I am legally allowed to own airsoft rifles for recreational purposes", "Vodka isn't illegal and nor are old rags I need when painting.")

What are some plausibly deniable weapons? For the sake of slow board, it's fine to list highly-available typical protest weapons like Molotov cocktails (alcohol/petroleum are usually legal and unsuspicious when disassembled), laser beams and power-tools like nail guns, but I'm curious to see what the most useful weapons are that are completely unsuspicious when disassembled.

Example scenario: pigs know you are an organized radical anti-capitalist and find an excuse to do a general search, hoping to find drugs or unregistered guns or something. What, in it's disassembled form if necessary, could evade their suspicion?

Suppressor, not sex toy


These are literally my costudents

t. I was there too a few times. years ago.


very interesting idea
it's extremely easy to make a good suppressor by cnc milling a cylinder of aluminum and stuffing the holes with steel wool for baffles. There is also 3d printed suppressors now but I still need to research them before I can comment. They are probably the best option today, in fact the new line of rifles the American military is rolling out right now all come equipped with a 3d printed suppressor.

For an extemely low tech solution you can simply use a plastic (PET) water bottle from the recycling as a suppressor. In fact that is what the chechen seperatists used to great effect during the first battle of Grozyny. A plastic PET bottle taped to the barrel of a bolt action .22 rifle firing subsonic ammunition will be completely silent aside from noise made from crunching the bottle etc. You could even stick one to the end of a .22 pistol and if it doesn't cycle the action then no one in the room with you will hear it fire. Just the sound of a body hitting the floor if you don't catch it.

Resistive wires for the primers (you could get these from a hair dryer or electric heater), matchhead powder for the propellant (since black powder is too tedious to make the old fashioned way)(you can just buy those bigger boxes that have a hundred or so in them), some shot (you can make this out of some Hershey's kiss wrappers by balling them up and tapping them with a hammer until they are completely solid and hardened, before polishing them with sandpaper), a ramrod, stainless steel pipes + endcaps, a lipo battery, a dual light on/off switch for the triggers, and some wires to hook it all up (ofc). Plus some wood to strap the barrel apparatus on and for the grip. And vinyl tape.


And some epoxy to glue the grip to the frame.

Rock tumbler would probably be better for polishing. Also maybe it would be better to just start with small ball bearings anyways. What's your reasoning for the Hershey Kiss wrappers?


Just to make it more DIY sounding.


if the thread gains some traction ill post some more ideas ive gathered over the years

Issues with that shelter:
1. You can't move pallets into this shelter. The Proletariat will be in need of logistics. That does not just mean enough for oneself, but enough for allies. It might be handy for these pallets to be underground.
2. Can pallets fit through all doors?

1. You already know it. Tested, tried, and true.
2. Smooth brain Excel Munchers such as ourselves can't guarantee the safety of our structures to guests.

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.

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
