Is an AR-15 the best rifle to get if you're looking to arm yourself? I know it's incredibly popular in the US, but I'm not sure how much of that is just people trying to operator larp.

Pros:
- Cheap ammo
- Ample parts
- Easy to use

Cons:
- Complex
- Low powered round
- High-profile sights

Hey buddy. Where are you getting these graphs from and what rounds are being compared and from what barrel lengths? Out of an 18 inch barrel 55 grain 5.56x45 NATO will go subsonic at about 550 yards but 55 grain 5.45x39 will only go subsonic at about 850 yards. You should see a major drop in the rounds at these ranges unlike this weird linear graph. If you know anything about ballistics you will know that as a round drops below the speed of sound it will lose stability and begin to wobble, greatly decreasing accuracy. The 55 grain 5.56 NATO round will also begin to drop bellow the 5.45x39 within a couple hundred yards and will reduce in initial energy to that of the 5.45x39 within 300 yards. This is an issue for the 5.56 NATO, as it is designed to fragment as it's main wounding effect and within a specific high speed, beyond that speed it's effectivness is greatly reduced. Most formulations of the 5.45x39 on the other hand have a hollow or soft cavity in the nose that causes the steel insert to project outwards and expand in soft tissue and the bullet has a unique tumbling effect in soft tissue that causes the bullet to "swim" laterally, causing massive tissue damage without relying on fragmentation necessarily, althouth it is a secondary effect. What this means practically is that the 5.45x39 round is more effective in tissue at ranges beyond 300 metres. However the 5.45x39 round also remains more rigid penetrating hard surfaces and has greater armour penetrating capabilites when comparing standard soft and improved penetration cartridges (e.g. 7N6M, 7N39) to their 5.56 NATO peers. The 5.45x39 round also has only about 40 percent of the recoil of the 5.56 NATO round and reduced muzzle flash and sound signature. This is in part due to the powder in the 5.45x39 round burning more evenly and fully than the 5.56 NATO round's burn which tends to fluctuate and will often not accelerate completely before exiting the barrel, particularly in shorter barrels. This is remedied somewhat by using barrels with an extended length, but a rifle with a 22 inch barrel is going to be a lot more cumbersome than one with a 16 or 14 inch barrel. The 5.45x39 round retains much of the same range and velocity at very short barrel lengths and is even effective in the 7.87 inch barreled aks74u Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I meant to also mention:
That being said 5.56 NATO is more widely available and in more modern chanberings, and usually cheaper than 5.45x39 Soviet. If you live in America and don't want to spend months or years and 10s of thousands of dollars fucking around and producing your own ammunition to milspec then go with 5.56 NATO. If you live somewhere with good access to Soviet surplus or Russian ammo then go with that.

What do people think the consequences of the FGC-9 and the advent of 3D printed guns and weapons more broadly will be?

How will this affect revolutionary as well as reactionary violence? Will be see a rise in paramilitary organisations on the left capable of enforcing political demands, or is this just a going to lead to more fascist lone wolf attacks.

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.

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?

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.

One thing no one has mentioned is that lenin says a prerequisite to communist revolution is a divided bourgeoisie (along with general revolutionary sentiment in the people, and the obvious failure of petite-bourgeois solutions). If the elites are divided (they are very divided, though they could stand to be more divided rn. Currently finance+rentier+tech(+tax+insurance) capital is very dominant and commercial+industrial+petite-bourgeois interests are subservient, but as imperialism falters and the screws tighten on the productive sectors (the second group), they'll start trying hard to get out of the things stifling profitability: labor aristocracy and the "entitlement" around good standard of living, taxes, protection rackets in general like insurance, and they may even side with reactionary petite-bourgeoisie in pseudo-revolutionary talk attacking rentier capital which is also an unnecessary burden on development (could even go as far as land reform promises, but i doubt it). And some petite-bourgeois conservative socialists will side with the productive capital against finance capital, and some will side with finance and their fancy AI, but ultimately both are a distraction from the real truth: they are divided, and the more divided the more the time is ripe)–

ok long parentheses tangent interrupted that small sentence so i'll restate it: If the elites are divided, then what it means for us is that it's high time to organize the working people against both sides, in service of our interests. We don't need to lay down and wait for the bourgeoisie to fight it out. Mostly it doesn't matter and they dont want a big fight. They'll just be deadlocked and do stupid shit like they always do, like assassinations and election fraud at worst.

If there's gonna be a civil war, we gotta start it. And we start it when the bourgeois factions are at each others necks and out for blood. Not to play them against each other or give a fuck about their sides, but because they're weak. They fight a two front battle and we fight a one-front one.

I think Canada would become the new hub of finance capital if anything happened to it in the US. All the elites would hide away in UK and NZ.

don't get brainworms from the spectacle
People are mad, but a war needs sides. There aren't even geographic differences holding back development or anything. Most people aren't racist, much much fewer are racist enough to not only kill also live as actual soldiers in an ongoing war. What's left? What division is there to divide america? Look to the past as well btw - the superficial beef/split among the political superstructure is just between two different routes of class-collaborationist militaristic & repressive rule. They will be able to come together when the time comes (or be scared into submission), just like all historical transitions from democracy to fascism. The bourgeoisie puts up limp resistance. So this is not a source of real division. The only thing left is class.

How will a class civil war sustain itself? Only if there is a coherent class ideology to sustain both sides (or else it'll be one-sided terror). Well, we live inundated with bourgeois ideology. What's the component that's needed for civil war then? Proletarian ideology. What does this mean for a proletariat which is not yet in possession of a society in its making? It means an understanding of its current repression by the ruling class, as well as it's historical mission.

Right now, civil war means communism. Ergo, we're not ready for civil war (or else we're ready for revolutionary war - which we are not).

Since we're lacking the proletarian ideology, why not predict more of the same? More black snipers, more riots and crimewaves, more schizo right wing terrorists, maybe the return of anarchist+leftist propaganda of the deed, and a good helping of state terrorism and union busting. As well as street skirmishes, etc.

Biden vs. Trump was a big split in American society and it wasn't even class based. Both were bourgeoisie and managed to rally riots/low level insurgency (BLM and George Floyd riots for Biden, MAGA and Capitol Hill storming for Trump.)

There will be another Trump and another Biden/Hillary Clinton. There will be another intra-bourgeoisie shitfight and that's the most likely thing to lead to civil war.

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?

Positives:

2. Smooth brain Excel Munchers such as ourselves can't guarantee the safety of our structures to guests.
