The Ruger American Ranch

Can anyone give the 5.56 NATO version a review here?

The one that takes AR mags

It is to my understanding that this fucker can be putting down some 1/2 MOA groups at 100yds out of the box, and that is with factory headspace issues and store-bought ammo.

I have an AR as my primary but I'm seriously considering the RAR because:

-It will share mags

-It will share ammo

-A bolt action with a 30 or 40rd PMAG is fucking legit, especially with one of them mag pouches that fixes to the stock. No LBE needed

-It may make a much better truck gun than the break action 12ga I keep tucked away behind the seats currently(???)

-Threaded muzzle for suppressor if I decide to get one later

Futuristic tanks and other vehicles

Let's have a tank thread that's not about outdated designs, but about vehicles so fresh they only exists in our heads. So not outright sci-fi tonks, but something that could be built in the coming decades.

For example, how about a tank that, instead of a traditional engine, uses electric motors integrated to the running gear, and the energy is provided by free-piston linear generators distributed in the hull of the tank. You could place some of them in the bottom of the hull, while some more could be in the sides, over the tracks. This way it would be practically impossible to take out the engine, because you'd have to destroy all the pistons for that. And they have a better fuel economy, and are easier to repair or replace. Best of all, if you made a free-piston linear generator that develops around 100 horsepower, then you could use that in nearly all of your ground vehicles. You'd just need 4-5 in a truck and about 15 in a tank.

• Pretend "Chinese" doctor Straya creeping on (likely underage) slave-whores claiming he can fix their problem areas.

• Same fake-ass creepy 'doctor' joking about picking up suicide bomber pieces as if there is an actual investigation going on

• Chilling by the second IED before it blows

First AR

Henlo /k, I just got my first AR.

Long story short, I did some wheelin' and dealin' with my LGS and got $1100 trade-in value give or take.

I got:

A brand new Ruger AR-556

9 30rd mags

A Leupold Mark AR Mod 1 with an RRA 1" cantilever scope mount

240rds of M855

Took all to the range today to sight in irons and scope, and I think I did okay for my first time firing an AR. Once I got things dialed in my groups weren't too bad.

However, the trigger on this AR doesn't seem great (this is my only complaint). It has a lot of creep and has like 8-9lbs pull (tested with gauge) and was responsible for more than one flier on my 100 and 200yd targets. It seems to break at a different point on each shot.

I don't have a lot of money to spend, what is a good replacement trigger? I put 210rds thru the gun today and the trigger's feel didn't change whatsoever.

I'm hoping that with a better trigger, non milsurp ammo, a soon to be broken in rifle (less machining marks and high edges), and better skill on my part as I go along, I'll be putting down some excellent groups.

Any help is appreciated.

Included: 2 groups (target is 12" diameter"

Tighter group is my 100yd group and first group with my optic. The two high and two low shots are from me dialing it in.

More spread out group is my 200yd group.

Yes, this is a datamining thread.

I've never been in the army, never shot a firearm and probably never will. The closest thing to shooting was playing FPS games, and still is. In most of them I despise iron sights because they always clutter the view and I can't acquire the target. Back when America's Army 3 was still a thing, I hated iron sights on my precious M16A4 and would always go for the red dot. Those of you who have a happier life than me, show me some iron sights. I want to see how they look in real life not just games. Because God knows I can't fathom how you can aim with those medieval things.

3 former US Army soldiers convicted in contract killing

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/04/18/3-former-us-army-soldiers-convicted-in-contract-killing.html

NEW YORK – A former U.S. Army sniper and two other ex-American soldiers were convicted Wednesday in the contract killing of a real estate agent in the Philippines for an international crime boss who thought the woman had cheated him on a land deal.

Joseph Hunter, a onetime sergeant from Kentucky with a Special Forces background, Adam Samia and Carl David Stillwell were found guilty of murder-for-hire and other charges. All three had denied they planned the 2012 execution-style hit — a case that's provided an inside glimpse into the secret fraternity of private mercenaries willing to kill in cold blood for cash.

"This horrifying real-life murder-for-hire case included details usually seen in action movies," U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement. "Hunter, Samia, and Stillwell conspired to end the lives of people overseas whom they had never met."

Prosecutors said the 52-year-old Hunter was working as a security chief for weapons and drug trafficker Paul Le Roux when he recruited Samia and Stillwell to travel from their homes in Roxboro, North Carolina, to the Philippines for what was called "ninja work." They said Hunter provided firearms and silencers and told them Le Roux would pay them $35,000 a piece to get the job done.

Samia, 43, and Stillwell, 50, pretended to be potential clients of the broker. While returning from a trip to the countryside outside of Manila, Samia pulled out a .22-caliber gun and killed the broker by shooting her twice in the face as she sat in the back seat of a van, prosecutors said.

Another machine gun amnesty?

Had a thought:

>Congress wants to ban bump stocks

>Trump says ok, in exchange for funding the wall, but all bump stocks currently in existence get grandfathered and registered as machine guns, with no need to pay the $200 tax stamp

>Congress kikes rub hands greedily at the thought of banning bump stocks and agree

>Trump does a repeat of the 1968 machine gun amnesty, via executive order, allowing anyone and everyone to register a machine gun legally, regardless of when it was made

>people start registering their AR's as machine guns by the millions

>Congress kikes shit themselves as millions of cheap machine guns suddenly flood the registry

>Trump says the executive order will stay active as long as he's in office, and the ATF must accept all applications to amnesty a machine gun that are sent in prior to the order being canceled by the next president

>ATF cries about all the paperwork; kikes smugly say that there's no way to process all the amnesty forms thanks to the massive backlog, thinking that will stop the surge in legal machine guns

>"No problem," says Trump, "we'll just remove suppressors, SBR's, and SBS' from the NFA registry so the ATF has less paperwork to process and can focus on all those machine guns"

>Jews screech in autistic rage

LCS likely won't enter service in 2018

https://news.usni.org/2018/04/11/navy-may-not-deploy-littoral-combat-ships-year

>"Three of the Navy’s four original LCSs are in maintenance now, and four of the eight block-buy ships that have commissioned already are undergoing their initial Post Shakedown Availabilities (PSA), Cmdr. John Perkins, spokesman for Naval Surface Force Pacific, told USNI News.

>In addition to the deploying ships themselves being in maintenance, so too are the training ships that will be required to help train and certify the crews. The Navy upended its LCS training and manning plans in 2016 when then-SURFOR commander Vice Adm. Tom Rowden announced a change to a blue-gold crewing model and a ship reorganization: hulls 1 through 4 serve in San Diego as a test division, to help test mission module components and get them fielded; the remaining ships are divided into divisions of four ships each, responsible for either surface warfare, mine countermeasures or anti-submarine warfare. Within each division, the first ship has a more experienced crew that is responsible for training and certifying the rest of the crews, and the other three ships are deployable assets. Due to this model, not only does the deployable ship have to be in the water and ready for operations, but so does the training ship."

LCS first ship to go from construction to maintenance dock without passing go or collecting $100. In ye olde days if a ship wasn't seaworthy after construction, people had the common sense to let it sink with dignity and grace. Navy also reduces order from 55 to 32 hulls, there will literally be two times more destroyers in service lol. And it's a pure gunship with a shitty 57mm cannon. This has to be the worst """"frigate"""" ever invented.

Jews Trying To Pass Radical Gun Control Legislation in New Jersey

NRA Protests Today

https://act.nraila.org/takeaction.aspx?AlertID=1996

New Jersey: Senate Committee Action Monday Includes Magazine Restriction

>Next week, the gun control fight in Trenton moves to the Senate, and NRA members need to make their voice heard loudly. A package of seven bills are scheduled to be heard in the Senate Law and Public Safety committee on Monday, April 16 at 10:30 a.m. Six of these bills were passed in the Assembly on March 26. When these bills were adopted in an Assembly Committee, gun owners made a strong showing of opposition, and it is essential that happens again. Anti-gun groups will be out in force, and their gun-banning agenda cannot go unanswered. Please plan to attend!

The bills on the agenda include:

>•S.102 by Sen. Majority Leader (((Loretta Weinberg))) (D) is a magazine and gun ban. This legislation would ban magazines with a capacity greater than 10. We all know magazine bans do nothing except punish law-abiding gun owners because criminals by definition ignore laws. This bill would put honest citizens in jeopardy during violent criminal attacks and would subject them to prosecution for possessing what is currently legal property. This bill would turn the majority of New Jersey’s 1 million gun owners into felons overnight.

>•S.2259 by Sen. Richard Codey (D) creates extreme risk protection orders whereby firearms can be seized and constitutional rights suspended with little to no due process. The bill fails to penalize those who fabricate accusations, and it does nothing to improve public safety.

>•S.160 by Sen. Vin Gopal (D) would allow for suspension of gun rights by unaccountable “health professionals.” This bill goes so far as to allow marriage counselors, social workers and nurses to cause suspension of your legal rights.

>•S.2376 by (((Sen. Linda Greenstein (D)))) codifies New Jersey’s “justifiable need” standard for the issuance of concealed carry permits. The bill is a striking blow to the basic fundamental right to self-defense outside the home. It creates a standard so onerous that nobody can meet it, hence the issuance of permits in New Jersey is close to non-existent.

>•S.2245 by Sen. Fred Madden, Jr. (D) bans handgun ammunition which is already banned under federal law. This bill does nothing to improve public safety and is a classic example of the asinine nature of New Jersey gun laws as a whole. This is nothing more than political pandering to gun banners.

>•S.2374 by (((Sen. Linda Greenstein))) (D) would require background checks on all firearm transfers. Again, this is redundant because all transactions in New Jersey require a background check. The private transfer of long guns requires an FID card and the issuance of that card requires fingerprinting, a background check and references, among other things. This bill does nothing except add another layer of bureaucracy and fees to an already cumbersome and duplicative process.

>Finally, there is a bill on the agenda which has not been introduced and for which no text has been made available. The title of the bill says it would criminalizes purchase of components to unlawfully manufacture untraceable firearms.

>The hearing will take place on Monday, April 16 at 10:30 a.m., in Room 4 of the Statehouse Annex, which is one of the larger rooms. That is a clear indication that leadership expects a large turnout. Anti-gun groups will be out in full-force. It’s important that gun owners continue to call, email and attend hearings. >Please contact your state Senator and let them know you oppose these gun bills. Please notice that there is not one bill on this agenda that addresses true school safety and that is disgraceful.

>There are several reasons why this communication is critical. Silence will telegraph that they can pass even more onerous bills. After a large turnout by gun owners on the Assembly side, the Legislature was forced to amend several bills and hold others. Please plan to attend the hearing and contact your lawmakers!

Rant tiem

USN is going to decomish one of their only two hospital ships USNS Mercy, and might remove both from service eventually. This is going to increase death rate tenfold because those two ships were there for every invasion in the past, in charge of emergency surgery, stabilizing soldiers enough so they can be airlifted to Germany (landstuhl) to save their life. Their hull is still solid, nothing about them is out of date.

To justify this, they lied and said large mobile bases like USNS Puller would be converted into hospital bases… and most people who follow this stuff were fine with it. It's a huge expense but at least no soldiers will die. However we just realized we got Jewed! USNS Mercy is being removed is to make LCS-like small hospital boats (image 2). Problem is such ships aren't large or stable enough to perform surgery on, nor do they have enough helicopter landing spots to be used correctly, nor do they have enough space for five operating halls, 1000 bed capacity, or enough blood and other medical storage to support an army.

Improvised Munitions Project

So I'm working on a little project here I think some of you will like.

In short, I tried creating an updated version of the Improvised Munitions handbook, essentially making a collection of relevant PDFs that would satisfactorily contain all the knowledge of the book and more. While making the book, I noticed how shit the publication actually is.The explosives recipes are ridiculously dangerous (almost no safety precautions or specific temperatures listed at where some sensitive explosives would detonate if not carefully watched.) Not even going to mention the illustrations showing an ungloved hand unceremoniously handling high explosives.

The project from there evolved to encompass a slightly wider subject matter covering things like sabotage and militia building. The articles included were no longer for "macgyvering" shitty weapons out of scrap, but were now intended to be recipes for the common citizen with a reasonable amount of time, money, education, and resources to utilize. You know, the people who would need this information the most.

The one thing I keep seeing over and over again as I work on this document is that in this day and age, the information needed to create explosives, homemade guns, and munitions in general are now more available than ever to the common man with the introduction of the internet. There's a problem that I also keeping seeing in that a main chunk of PDFs out there that focus on "Anarchists Cookbook" like topics are usually:

Poorly formatted, (What's the use of your shitty infographic on making C4 in your mom's kitchen if it looks like it was scanned from a book about 25 times and can't be read when printed out?) Outdated, Dangerous, (I get that making explosives is already dangerous, but holy shit even the U.S military was guilty of peddling recipes that would have likely killed you, had you actually tried them.) Or sometimes even just contain flat out misinformation. In short, I'm in the middle of reformatting a shit ton of PDF files, fact checking, researching topics I never knew anything about, etc. and etc. Posted is the planned table of contents for version 3.0 of the document with most of the chapters being done with only a few minor tweaks needed. What I'm aiming for is a manual, sort of a combination of what the Anarchists Cookbook and Improvised Munitions Handbook intended to be, with modern day tactics and accurate information.

It would be immensely helpful if I could get some criticism, recommendations, or links to relevant PDF files. I can't create an "Anarchist's Cookbook" that actually works if I don't know what information people would actually like to SEE in a book like this, so I figured I would ask you guys. Some of the chapter names are really vague so if I need to explain exactly what information I have collected for said chapter for you guys I will if requested.

I want to give citizens the knowledge needed to be able to arm themselves should the government decides that the right to bear arms is no longer self-evident, but no one wants to sift through thousands of shady articles on how to go about making IEDs, and when the time comes to ACTUALLY do so, the common man may no longer have the ability to access said information.

Can we post guns?

Post your favorite gun you own.

This is a CAA Micro Roni stabilizer conversion that turns a Glock pistol into a small PDW (personal defense weapon). Increases accuracy by a good amount (accurate up to roughly 50 yards) and can land hits consistently on man sized targets up to 100 yards away. 100 yards is pushing the accuracy of this platform, but it can be done reliably with practice. It gives you 4 points of contact with your body. Cheek weld, shoulder and both hands.

It converts in roughly 30 seconds.

It is light weight, small, it is not considered a subgun or rifle because it has an "arm brace" that can also be used as a stock "occasionally" as the wording on the BATFE letter states. The "arm brace" folds and it uses Glock reliability and Glock magazines.

I use it with my G19. It is cute CUTE!

FAL appreciation thread

Why is FAL such an incredible rifle?

I shot it today for the first time in my life. Before that I was shooting Mosin, AK, Winchester 1873, but at 25m as a beginner shooter I missed most shots. Only got to send like 5 out of 20 total hitting the human sized target where I aimed.

But when I took picrelated in my hands, I knew I was in love. It is not too heavy, not too light, just the right weight. Very satisfying iron sights that were easy to use even with large ear protection which was fucking with my aim for other rifles. From 5 shots I made, all 5 hit the target, exactly where I aimed, one headshot in the nose, and 4 body shots (it is expensive to shoot in my country, so I can't really go full auto, I have family to feed). And it just looks beautiful. It's long and elegant, and also means business, when someone carries this shit, he does not fuck around.

I'll probably go back to the range and shoot it again despite it costing me 2 bucks per shot + admission fee. I envy you burgers for having a possibility to OWN a rifle like this.

Independent Swiss Lab Says 'BZ Toxin' Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian

"Somebody has some explaining to do… or did the Syrian airstrikes just 'distract' the citizenry from the reality surrounding the Skripal poisoning.

Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent - produced by Russia - was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the 'facts' as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being 'infected' and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?

Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

RT reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW), that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ.

The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW.

However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added.

He went on to say that Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report.

On a side note, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW."

-Heel-button release. Superior to Mak but weird location.

http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/15654/heres-whats-in-the-navys-damning-new-reports-on-its-destroyer-collisions

In the case of the Fitzgerald, the ship was within sight of land and was running with only external navigation lights on when it came into contact with the ACX Crystal, a common procedure. Per the official International Rules of the Nautical Road, the American destroyer was in a so-called “crossing situation” and should have moved out of the path of the other vessel. When that didn’t happen, the container ship’s crew was supposed to do the same.

Though aware of the situation for 30 minutes before the collision, neither ship took evasive action leading up to the mishap. Minutes before the two smacked into each other, Fitzgerald’s Officer of the Deck and Junior Officer of the Deck, the former in charge of the ship’s safe navigation and the other there to assist, were still debating on the bridge whether or not change course.

At no point did any other personnel on the bridge appear to offer substantive advice, according to the review, and the ship’s captain, who was asleep at the time, was completely unaware of what was going on, a breach of protocol, until the ACX Crystal literally smashed its way into his quarters. The destroyer’s Combat Information Center, which fuses data from the ship’s radar and other sensors, never offered information or advice to the Office of the Deck.

At no point did personnel on the bridge sound a collision warning or otherwise alert the rest of the crew, many of whom were also in their bunks, of the impending danger. The accident caused such significant damage as to knock out the Fitzgerald’s external communications systems, preventing the crew from quickly calling for help, and all power to the forward spaces of the ship.

As we at The War Zone reported before, based on an initial release of information to the public, that the incident wasn’t worse is a testament to the courage of the ship’s crew in the immediate aftermath. Along with these latest reports, the Navy released a number of haunting hand drawn sketches investigators had sailors draw of how they escaped the flooding in the compartments.

German Armed Forces

Shortfalls in the German army's personnel and equipment are "dramatically" hindering its readiness for combat, according to a new report. No submarines or large transport planes were available for deployment at the end of last year, the report says. It also points to failures in planning and leadership that have exacerbated existing problems in the military.

The report was published by the parliamentary commissioner for the armed forces, Hans-Peter Bartels. "The army's readiness to deploy has not improved in recent years, but instead has got even worse," Mr Bartels told reporters at a press conference in Berlin. "At the end of the year six out of six submarines were not in use. At times, not one of the 14 Airbus A-400M could fly," he said. Mr Bartels said all of the vehicles were being repaired at the time of the report. The condition of the military's fleet of fighter planes, tanks, helicopters and ships is described as "dramatically bad". The report also says a lack of spare parts and outdated equipment has left "big gaps" in the armed forces. It notes that thousands positions for officers were vacant, resulting in a lack of adequate leadership.

The report calls on the government to pursue reforms "with greater urgency" and increase the defence budget. Germany spent €37bn ($45bn; £33) in 2017 on defence - about 1.2% of GDP, well short of the Nato target of 2%.

The issue of defence spending did not play a major part in recent coalition talks, but Chancellor Angela Merkel has pledged to meet the 2% spending target by 2024. "We will make the best possible equipment, training and support available to our soldiers," Ms Merkel said earlier this year. On Monday, a Nato diplomat told Reuters news agency that "German readiness levels are a serious concern". Germany has for years struggled to modernise its military as it becomes more involved in Nato operations. It scrapped conscription to become a professional army seven years ago, but in 2016 said it was considering a form of national service for civil defence.

Recurrent funding issues have been highly embarrassing. In 2014, it was revealed that tank commanders had covered up their lack of machine guns by using broomsticks painted black during a Nato exercise.

Other Nato members have also started to increase defence spending. The alliance faces a range of security challenges, including the Islamist insurgencies in the Middle East and Africa.

Pilots complained that tanker aircraft are too big and visible. Basically making the B-2 spirit unusable because it would need to be refueled by non-stealthy refueling aircraft within Soviet radar coverage. Also any retard can bring a tanker down with a simple 60s era SAM which completely disables air operations in an entire region for several days.

So someone thought a quick fix would be to make a drone thats basically an unmanned fuel tank, and follows a jet into combat.

Northrop Grumman isn't giving up!

This is the H03, a spy plane. Very few places on the net are talking about it, so I thought /k/ should too.

It's predecessor, the Firebird, had 40 hours endurance 30,000ft ceiling, and two hardpoints for mission payload. The H03 looks to have 4 hardpoints, noise reduction technology, and it probably also operates longer than two days and at a higher altitude.

The key point of these aircraft is that they can be flown with or without a pilot. In other words two passengers can sit in them, go to sleep, and a guy 10,000km on the ground could control the aircraft.

/k/ Spook Digging Thread: Northern Nevada Edition

Archive of previous thread- Anon's uncle provided a bunch of info, very well worth reviewing.

https://archive.fo/6A38N

There are three stories from Northern Nevada, two within rather close proximity of one another. I've done some digging and I think I've narrowed it down quite a bit.

Based on the description, we should be able to find a few abandoned mine shafts on the eastern side of the Ruby mountains.

>Per one UNR source, there should be two abandoned shafts in the vicinity of, both for tungsten.

>Cross-referencing that against their database for documents involving tungsten mines/claims in Elko county produced quite a few results.

>One definite tungsten mine location is by Battle Creek. The Battle Creek location is ~20 miles south of where we were looking, but it does have the crook in the road as described E Zed. The trees are there as described, but I can't see a structure or a giant rock. The topography isn't an exact match either.

>A website that tracks mining claims, places 4 potential entrances within a few hundred yards, but not at the particular location that E Zed indicated.

> There is also a second hook in the road on the other side, but it doesn't exactly match the description either.

If OP wasn't 100% accurate in his recollection, I would argue this would be a good place to start. The Northern location has proved much harder to locate, which will be addressed in the next post.

Space /k/olonization bread

I've always wondered what kind of advancements in space warfare the existence of permanent self-sustaining human settlements in outer space would bring to the table.

A pair of O'Neill cylinders with a population of 4 million whites at L4 that declared independence from (((earth))) could certainly manufacture and drop WMDs on earthlings without getting destroyed by traditional mutual assurance unless they're space rhodesians with little in the way of in-situ industry, being mostly dependent on UN mining kikes running the mass driver on the moon, but it wouldn't take much to wipe out the entire colony on the other hand.

If (((they))) decide not annihilate the colony but instead conquer it for space shekels then what would urban warfare inside a pressurized rotating cylinder 32km in length and 8km in diameter be like?

Sniper Rifles For Every Budget

Lad's help me sort through the bullshit and figure out which are the best rifles for sniping. The scenario is: The Chinese Reds have invaded and have captured most cities. Liberals, the most common type of traitor in America, being concentrated in the cities, acquiesced. Rural America remains, as in the PRC, largely uncontrolled, but heavily oppressed. Your task: keep the Reds from feeling safe anywhere except their most defended corridors.

However, for you to do this, you must first select and acquire a rifle, today. Depending on your difficulty level, you will have more or less money to spend.

I'll go first, and give my picks, but I admit I'm not going on any goddamn experience.

Let's say:

1. Dream rifle, no price limit

2. Less than $2000

3. Less than $1000

4. Less than $500

5. Cheapest possible

Body armor still crap?

Hello /k/ so I was wondering: how come modern body armor is still crap?

By "crap" I mean useless against rifle fire, especially sniper rifles.

Pic related. I know it's from a game made in 2004 (13+ damn years ago) but I think it's an exciting artist's impression of how future body armor may look like: basically a thick sponge-like vest. In my imagination it could be a "memory" material which changes its state to a thick liquid when hit, thus absorbing/dissipating the energy of the bullet. Then the vest would return to its original sponge structure (with some damage of course).

But enough daydreaming! What we have now is kevlar, steel plates and ceramic plates. "Dragon skin" armor is was an interesting idea: instead of a single big plate there are many small discs sewn in the fabric. Other than that, everybody seems to be out of ideas (apart from exoskeletons, which are a liability IMHO: what happens if you get EMP'd?)

So /k/, is there anything new and exciting in the works?

Something magic, to poop on the joy of riflemen whose bullets pierce all?

Post Florida massacre, in gun-friendly Vermont, lawmakers pass firearms control bill

Vermont lawmakers gave final legislative approval on Friday to a bill that raises the legal age for buying firearms and expands background checks, becoming the latest state poised to tighten gun restrictions after last month's Florida school massacre.

Updated: Mar 31, 2018, 04:30 PM IST

>Vermont lawmakers gave final legislative approval on Friday to a bill that raises the legal age for buying firearms and expands background checks, becoming the latest state poised to tighten gun restrictions after last month's Florida school massacre.

>The Democrat-controlled state Senate approved the measure, S55, in a 17-13 vote, according to the online legislative record. The bill passed the state House of Representatives this week. The measure now goes to Republican Governor Phil Scott, who has shifted his stance and voiced support for some gun controls after the arrest in February of a Vermont teenager accused of threatening to shoot up a high school. The incident came two days after a former student killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, on Feb. 14. Scott's support for gun controls marked a sharp switch for a governor with a 93 percent approval rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) gun rights advocacy group in an otherwise politically liberal state with a reputation as a pro-gun stronghold.

>Vermont, a largely rural New England state with a passion for hunting, is one of two dozen states where efforts to curb gun violence have gained momentum since the Feb. 14 shooting rampage that killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The Vermont bill raises the age for gun purchases to 21 and expands background checks for private gun sales. It also bans magazines of more than 10 rounds for long guns and 15 rounds for pistols as well as rapid-fire devices known as bump stocks. Vermont Public Radio reported that the Senate would take up two more gun-related measures next week. Both are aimed at removing guns from homes in cases of domestic violence or when someone is at risk of imminent harm from firearms, it said.

>Gun control advocates say the turnaround in Vermont and other states has been propelled in part by the groundswell of student-led lobbying efforts and protests calling for firearms restrictions. After the Parkland massacre, Florida's Republican-controlled legislature swiftly passed a bill that raised the age requirement and set a three-day waiting period for gun purchases and allowed the arming of some school personnel. The measure was signed into law by another Republican with strong NRA credentials, Governor Rick Scott.

Powerlevels

Hello, I am Trainautist, you may remember me from such threads as "how to protect a train system" or "logistics of war".

Today I would like to touch on a subject that has been on my mind for a very long time.

Power, and it's military purpose.

As we all know, electric power is necessary to run 99.99999% of all production machinery. If your nation can't produce ammunition, food or anything else, you will lose any kind of war almost instantly. Not only will your soldiers either starve, be captured without ammo, or worse, but your population will suffer immensely, sine refrigeration/freezing has almost completely replaced pickling, drying, and salting as the main method of preserving food. Hostpitals would cease to function after a week or so, without electric pumps it would take ages to fill fuel trucks, or fuel trains to transport the diesel or gas to wherever it is needed for power production or fueling trucks/tanks/cars.

As you can clearly see, protecting the power network of your nation is one of the key goals of any defensive military plan, yet there are many ways you could permanently take out power structures.

There are exactly three points of failure in the modern power structure. The power lines, transformers, and power plants.

Let me begin with power lines, since they are very similar to train lines in how to defend them. You need regular patrols, possibly on bikes or on cars. It will eat up lots of your resources, but is absolutely necessary to keep your power network going.Taking out two or three large high voltage power posts using very little explosives, or just a metal saw and a truck, can lead to a total blackout in large areas, causing trouble and confusion.

You can always lay your power lines underground, but that bears a whole other set of risks. Underground lines may be a lot harder to take out, but damages are harder to detect and repair too. All it would take would be two guys with a shovel and some explosives. They dig a hole to your power lines, bust them up, and fill the hole again before running like a swarm of bees was after them. Even if your power lines are underground, you would still need to post guards or have patrols, but in longer intervals. The deeper they are (and the longer it takes for a saboteur to dig down to them) the fewer soldiers you need to put on patrol duty,but figuring out where exactly the damage was done will be a lot harder than with overground cables, since you can't just fly a helo along them to see where one of the poles has fallen over, or a cable was cut. You need men on the ground to walk along the line and see where the ground has been dug up and hastily covered again.

The next point of failure would be transformers, but those have already been discussed to death here. All it takes is a dude with some molotows and a vespa and an entire city is without power. Posting at least four armed guards (two asleep, two guarding at all times) would be an absolute necessity. They must also have backup on standby. Again, a helo with a squad on board, or just a truck with a siren so it can avoid traffic would be ideal.

However it would also be easy to have one guy with an RPG or MANPAD ready to take out the reinforcements before they arrive. At that point you would need to worry a lot more about why your own population wants you to lose the war that badly.

The third point of failure are the power plants themselves, and they are my biggest concern in a nation VS nation war. One good hit on a nuclear, coal or hydroelectric powerplant will not only halt power generation, but in the case of nuclear power plants and hydroelectric dams, also cause massive damage to the surrounding areas. Using CIWS, and a layered AA missile system would be a clear necessity, and require lots and lots of resources. Decentralized power production, like windfarms, or solar panels would work and solve some of these issues, but especially solar farms would suffer greatly under light fragmentation bombs/artillery.

What's /k/s opinion on this?

Unusual/Bizzare/Experimental Weapons Thread

Let's have a thread for all the strange weapon systems that have been experimented with, regardless of whether they ended up working or not.

To start off, I present to /k/ the Bell YFM-1 Airacuda. Designed in the mid-30's as a dedicated bomber destroyer, the Airacuda featured design features that are nearly unique, although rightfully so. As you can see, the Airacuda had three seperate crew compartments, two located just fore of the pusher-prop engines, and a primary compartment in the central fuselage. The central compartment held the pilot, a copilot/navigator who also acted as a fire control officer and a radio operator who was also responsible for manning the defensive waist machine guns. In each of the engine mounted compartments sat a loader/gunner whose primary purpose was to reload the 37mm M4 autocannon turrets, although he could also operate them independently.

The issues with the Airacuda basically included every aspect of it's design. It was heavy, slow and maneuvered poorly, being slower than most of the bombers it was designed to hunt. The 37mm autocannons turned out to be somewhat less capable that anticipated, in addition to rendering the loaders compartment with smoke during firing. The engines were horribly prone to overheating, to the point that the aircraft was unable to taxi under it's own power and could only start it's engines when towed to the runway immediately before take-off. Speaking of the engines, the failure of either engine during flight would immediately send the aircraft into a spin. Finally, the Airacuda used an independent APU to power every electrical system on the aircraft. This meant that in the event of a failure of the APU, the entire aircraft effectively shut down, leaving the crew with almost no control at all, as the hydraulic, vacuum, fuel pumps, flaps and engines were all dependent upon it. Despite all this, only one death occurred in the Airacuda's two year career, when a pilot's parachute failed to deploy.

The Airacuda entered service in 1940, before being retired in March 1942. All 9 remaining examples were scrapped.

With the discontent towards the volunteers of /pol/ and /leftypol/ along with the collapse of kaycee, /k/ has seen a steady rise in political baiting and /int/ tier shit flinging.

/k/ has previously been very successful in avoiding both over zealous moderation like /pol/ and /v/, and being a designated shitting street like /christian/ where bestiality porn and brownpill spam stayed up for a day or more. Users were rarely aware of the existence of the volunteers on /k/, they did their job very well and very discreetly. Unfortunately the cancer has started to spread to /k/, coinciding with a shift in board ownership. I like what boss strelok has done and agree with his methods of continuing the legacy of the late boss strelok (PBUH). That being said, conditions seem to have changed and I think it's time we discuss how to best weather these changes. I'm not proposing any methods for moderating the board, however I'd like this thread to be a meta thread. Yes, I know how fucking cancerous this thread is, you've gotta kill some good cells to kill the bad ones.

Expedient Ammunition Threda

Hi, I'd like to discuss sources to make expedient ammunition. There's a video on the YouTubes where the ammo channel takes a razor blade and shaves several matchbooks worth of material and reloads a .38 cal bullet with 6 grams of this propellant. The bullet fired using a standard primer and went 560 fps, and cleared 16" of gel before embedding into a 2x6 piece of wood. With over the counter powder his .38 travelled at 990 fps using the same wadcutter. So my question would be whether using match propellant be a good substitute for smokeless in a shtf scenario and whether there'd be any possibilities of increasing performance. I'm also interested in learning from reloading people on cheap sources of lead. So far I'm stuck on loads of the shit from junkyards. Preferences on bullet castings and tips and anything else you can think of would be within the purview of this threda.

Chinese Carrier Deployed in Exercise in South China Sea

https://archive.fo/5mWqW

https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2018/03/28/chinese-flotilla-transits-south-china-sea-satellite-imagery-shows/

>The U.S. military has warily watched the steady growth of China’s military and its expansion into the South China Sea, where its anti-access/area denial strategy seeks to shoo America and other outsiders out of the country’s watery backyard.

>This week, the country’s naval forces produced its latest coming out party of sorts, as scores of ships steamed with an aircraft carrier along a vital trade waterway, according to satellite images first obtained and reported on by Reuters.

>The images, provided by Planet Labs, an earth imaging company, show Chinese ships moving in a straight line off the island of Hainan in the South China Sea.

>Reuters reported this week that the movements were part of what the Chinese navy said were combat drills that comprised part of annual exercises.

>The Chinese Liaoning carrier group just steamed through the Taiwan Strait last week, the Taiwanese defense ministry said, according to Reuters

>Taken Monday, the images appear to show dozens of ships and submarines flanking the carrier in a line formation.

>“It’s an incredible picture,” Jeffrey Lewis, a security expert at the Middlebury Institute for Strategic Studies, was quoted as saying by Reuters. “That’s the big news to me. Confirmation that, yes, the carrier participated in this exercise.”

>The size and scope of the deployment was unusual, security expert Collin Koh told Reuters.

>“It does seem they are keen to show that elements of the South Sea Fleet are able to routinely join up with the carrier strike group from Dalian in the north,” said Koh, of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.

>Koh said the Chinese flotilla appears to include a large oiler for refueling as well as smaller corvettes, in addition to the standard destroyers, frigates and boats that would travel with a carrier, according to Reuters.

>While the movement showcases the Chinese navy’s ability to deploy, it remains to be seen where the force stands in terms of actual combat readiness, Koh told Reuters.

>Monday’s display of maritime might came after news Friday that the U.S. Navy destroyer Mustin conducted a freedom of navigation operation, or FONOP, where it steamed within 12 nautical miles of a South China Sea artificial island built by the Chinese.

>The FONOP, first reported by Reuters, involved the Mustin traveling near Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands.

>China has sought to extend its reach into the South China Sea by constructing artificial islands and military bases.

>Meanwhile, the United States has called out the development’s potential infringement on the free flow of trade.

>U.S. military officials said the activities were allowed under international law and that forces regularly operate in the region.

FAMILY THINKS I’LL SHOOT UP A SCHOOL

Ok streloks I need your help. I’ve recently been buying more guns and I talk about guns and weapons a fair amount. This usually would not be a problem. Just a hobby. Little problem. I live in Florida and the false flag just happened. This has led to my family being on edge and thinking I will shoot up a school, I’ll be arrested for going on /k/ and I’m creepy. Usually this wouldn’t be a problem, but I still live with my parents because of school shit. I’m worried they’ll report me for some reason and the ATF will shoot our dog. So how the fuck can I make them not think I’m a psychopath and that I only care about my freedoms and it’s only a hobby?

>Family info

Mother’s a soccer mom who wants to raise the age to buy a gun, ban high capacity clips, brags about white genocide, loves (((diversity))), ban bump stocks and loves student protests. Father’s pretty cool since he actually gives a shit but still and has non-fudd guns (ar-15, glocknade, baretta, etc.,) wants to raise the age to buy a gun and agrees with Trump’s gun grabbing. Problem is, he listens to whatever my mother says and thinks I’m crazy too for going on /k/. Grandpa is a total FUDD so not much need for explanation there. Grandma is ironically the only one who doesn’t think I’m crazy and actually supports the 2A, but is on the fence about fun control.

>Why?

Two reasons, for one I store my guns properly and clean them. They think this makes me a psychopath. Secondly, we have a problem with invasive species and two are huge problems. Cuban tree frogs and brown anoles. So, I go around the property with a giant metal rod I sharpened and my old airshit pistol killing them. This isn’t the main point of contention but it is a role in it nonetheless.

BILL C-71 BEING PUSHED

BY THE LEAF KIKES

FIRST READING NOW

>ht tps://www.parl.ca/DocumentViewer/en/42-1/bill/C-71/first-reading

>https://archive.fo/oKTcG

Summary:

(a) remove the reference to the five-year period, set out in subsection 5(2) of that Act, that applies to the mandatory consideration of certain eligibility criteria for holding a licence;

(b) require, when a non-restricted firearm is transferred, that the transferee’s firearms licence be verified by the Registrar of Firearms and that businesses keep certain information related to the transfer; and

(c) remove certain automatic authorizations to transport prohibited and restricted firearms.

Part 1 also amends the Criminal Code to repeal the authority of the Governor in Council to prescribe by regulation that a prohibited or restricted firearm be a non-restricted firearm or that a prohibited firearm be a restricted firearm and, in consequence, the Part

(a) repeals certain provisions of regulations made under the Criminal Code; and

(b) amends the Firearms Act to grandfather certain individuals and firearms, including firearms previously prescribed as restricted or non-restricted firearms in those provisions.

Furthermore, Part 1 amends section 115 of the Criminal Code to clarify that firearms and other things seized and detained by, or surrendered to, a peace officer at the time a prohibition order referred to in that section is made are forfeited to the Crown.

Part 2, among other things,

(a) amends the Ending the Long-gun Registry Act, by repealing the amendments made by the Economic Action Plan 2015 Act, No. 1, to retroactively restore the application of the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act to the records related to the registration of non-restricted firearms until the day on which this enactment receives royal assent;

(b) provides that the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act continue to apply to proceedings that were initiated under those Acts before that day until the proceedings are finally disposed of, settled or abandoned; and

(c) directs the Commissioner of Firearms to provide the minister of the Government of Quebec responsible for public security with a copy of such records, at that minister’s request.

>What does this mean?

Trudau's (((government))) will put classification of firearms in the hands of the (((RCMP))), who can then reclassify guns like the AR15 from Restricted (harder to acquire/transport) to Prohibited (meaning they can take it away). It also sneakily brings back the registry for Non-Restricted rifles such as shotguns and hunting rifles.

Are bullets the be all-end all in handled weapons? Think about it. hat would come after them? Lasers/plasma/insert other form of DE. The only way you could match the performance of a firearm with a handheld laser would be to have a little nuclear reactor that be held in our hands. I;m not a nuclear physicist, but that's pretty much impossible. Not to mention kinetic energy is superior to thermal energy when it comes to killing macroscopic organisms. In order to kill something with heat you have to burn most of its body, or burn something important. Burning only a small part of person, or animal's body won't kill them, but shooting them can. Also thermal energy is easier to defend against than kinetic energy, for example a .50 BMG has a muzzle energy of about 18 kJ and it can smash though concerte, brick, metal, etc, but a laser with hat kind of energy would only scorch the surface without doing any real damage. We have tons of ceramics that could easily withstand the heat from a high powered lasergun, but would get shattered by birdshot.

IT BEGINS!: Florida Man's Firearms, Ammunition Confiscated Under New Gun Control Law

THANKS TRUMP

>The guns and ammunition of a 56-year-old Lighthouse Point, Florida, resident were confiscated by police in what is reportedly the first such seizure under gun control laws signed by Gov. Rick Scott (R) last week.

>The Orlando Sentinel reports that “four firearms and 267 rounds of ammunition” were taken from the man, and he was “taken to a hospital for involuntary psychiatric treatment.”

>The seized firearms were listed as “a Ruger LCP .380 pistol, an M2 Mauser .45 pistol, a Charter Arms .357 mag snub nose revolver and a Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun.”

>The paper notes that “the civil ruling removing his access to guns and ammunition was granted under … new legislation — which permits confiscating guns from people who have not been committed but are deemed a potential risk to themselves or others, according to the order signed by Broward’s Chief Judge Jack Tuter.”

>The confiscatory order also bars the man from making new firearm or ammunition purchases.

>On March 9, Breitbart News reported that Gov. Scott signed a $400 million gun bill that includes orders which allows a family member or law enforcement to petition a judge to order the seizure of an individual’s firearms. The bill also put waiting periods in place for long gun purchases, raised the minimum purchase age for long gun purchases (from 18 to 21), and banned bump stocks.

>When asked about the confiscatory order that resulted in the seizure of the Lighthouse Point resident’s firearms, Mayor Glenn Troast said, “This is not about the Second Amendment and it’s not about the NRA. We need commonsense gun laws and this is a commonsense gun law that gives police officers new tools they need to help us protect our community.”

Don't you even think of giving up yet. Now is the time we need to move forward beyond this. Redpill your family and friends, take them shooting and get them involved. Educate people on the constitution.

Key point to remember: you cannot convert a zealot, but you can convert the moderates who are undecided. If you encounter a zealot grabber, make them look dumb and less credible so you can play to the normies and win them over.

Drop the desperate autist act: This was funny and great earlier but now you and I are on the frontlines and have to be something more than internet clowns. Our rights are at stake and this is going to be a tough slog.

Civil prep: Self-improvement should be your #1 goal in all areas. You need to be the best possible representation of our rights and views that are humanly impossible. Workout, eat right, maintain your morals and gain the admiration of your peers. Be strong, date girls and get married so you can make clones of yourself (watch your back and avoid thots at all costs).

Hard Prep: This is 1776 territory. Should the boundaries be overstepped, none of you should be caught flat-footed. This is a last resort but you should be prepared for all contingencies. Logistics and equipment (protection, food, comms and med supplies) are a must. Location and networking are also essential. I believe there was a map on here showing /k/'s locations and contact info. Get a protonmail account ASAP and hop on it with other /k/ommandos so you can network on a local level.

Every last one of you should be feeling a cold rage fill your veins. A harnessed, slow-burn that's going to chemically alter you into a new being you didn't know existed. Those spindly, androgynous fucks out there think that their fee-fees are more important than your God-given rights and they want you stripped of all of them so you can be preyed upon by criminals and thugs.

FUCK. THAT. NOISE.

Finally, don't you stop and say to yourself "I'm not a leader, I'm not a revolutionary, I'm just a sperg-burger with a Mosin". My ancestors were Swiss-German Mennonites who decided to take up arms against a superpower to defend a country they'd only recently moved to. It's gonna take balls to hold your ground these days. Hell, read 1776 and remember that Georgie-boy himself was constantly racked with uncertainty and doubt but pulled through. We're all gonna make it, /k/omrades.

Now stack on me, faggots. We've got work to do.

French legislation

So I'm completely new to /k/, and I've just discovered that French guns laws are actually pretty open when it comes to firearm ownership. By having a license at a range you can get any semi automatic providing that it is 30 rounds max per magazine, under 20mm caliber. I mean, it's way less restrictive that I could have expected. But this sound too god to be true in my opinion. Any frenchfags here would be willing to tell me about their gun ownership experience?

I'm probably going to get a license and get a B category or something like that later this year, if everything is like what I've read.

TRUMP PROPOSES SPACE FORCE

SPACE MUHREEEENS

In reality, a space force would probably revolve around defending current assets in space and its current surveillance role, as well as protecting american commercial and research spacecraft.

There have been many, many military research programs into a somewhat cost-effective reusable spacecraft with a low turn-around time(under 24hrs was usually the target to meet, some had 2-3x or other requirements.)

I'll type out following posts about american military spacecraft research, mostly the launch vehicles.

Human factors in military design and planning

Another Kraut autism thread.

First of all, let me point out that anyone who wants to make "shitty" jokes should probably leave now. Yes, this thread will be ripe with opportunities for such childish fun, but please attempt to keep it to a minimum.

We all know that humans do five things in life: Drink, Eat, sleep, shit and wash.

We also know that humans regularly go to war, where they must still eat, sleep, shit and wash regardless.

In this thread we discuss how water, food, sleep, shitters and hygiene tools are provided to troops on the battlefield in the past, present and future.

The importance of food and sleep are obvious. Certain foods and drugs can reduce the need for these two drastically, but a minimum is always required to stay alive and sane.

Taking a dump, or a leek, is a logical consequence of food and drink. MREs constipate you a lot, the but the material has to go somewhere, same goes for any drink you consume.

If your troops are in the same area for a long time (either during trench warfare, urban warfare, or inside of a vehicle) there is an obvious need to separate the troops from the feces, or face serious health issues.

Personal hygiene becomes much more important in long term operations. Not only did soldiers in WWI suffer from diseases such as the Spanish flu, or pox , but lice and other parasites were also very common. The same is true for the soldiers of WWII. Who would have though that a person who lives in the woods like an animal will eventually be as dirty as an animal?

To preserve the health, and thus combat readiness, of the troops regular personal hygiene procedures must be performed, such as washing of clothes, brushing of teeth, and a simple scrub with water and soap.

Shaving is also extremely important, since a clean shaved face not only makes NBC protection much easier. A clean shaved head doesn't allow lice to spread unnoticed as easily. Powders and poison gas can be used to remove the parasites from the clothing reliably. Before such means were available infantrymen tied their uniforms to rocks and threw them into a river or shallow lake. This would, so they hoped, drown the lice.

However the eggs of said lice were still there, and would hatch as soon as the clothes were put on again.

It becomes clear that providing food, time to rest as well as regular hygienic checks for your troops is an extremely important part of warfare and planning military operations. As the old German saying goes "Ohne Mampf, keinen Kampf.", no food, no fight.

But infantry is not the only branch of the military. During long distance flights pilots must occasionally use the toilet, or have a snack. Sleep becomes an important factor during long distance strategic missions as well. The Su34 features an on-board toilet, as does the GTK Boxer. Catheters can be used to extract urine from the bladder during long operations, but there is no catheter for shit, and diapers must still be changed or you risk skin infections.

Women in the military complicate this issue further, being unable to pee standing for one, they also have a tendency to bleed once a month, which can only be suppressed with tampons, pads, or the pill. And since no major military of the world is actively stockpiling any of these three items I can't see a future where women will be used for any long term military missions.

Would female only companies or even battalions solve this issue, or further complicate things? Are on board toilets truly necessary? Why are you always short on toilet paper when you are innawoods, and what would be a low tech option for the average strelok in the field to get rid of parasites and their eggs effectively? How fucked are you, if you have to take a dump in an NBC contaminated area? How many razor blades does /k/ pack when they go on an exercise? Shaving foam, or gel?

While this thread does bear potential for faggots to ruin it, I am convinced that it's topic has a great importance in warfare, and should be discussed.

Pls no poo in loo jokes, no fart fetish shit, no MUH WOMYNZ IN THE MILITARY bashing (the physical capabilities of females in combat has already been discussed to hell and back). Just keep flag-retardation out of this thread. I want to have a serious dicussion about the industrial output of the ottoma– erm… human factors in warfare and weapon design

Looking at recent TFB posts i saw these things. That brings an idea. These things are non lethal rubber bullets crap. But what about lethal air gun? Air guns are not firearms. This is big.

Problem air gun are limited in the power. This revolver is only 11J and its close to the practical limits. But what about darts? Bullets are extremely efficient in the penetrating. Razor sharpened small broadhead dart requires much less energy to penetrate.

Guess the mystery

Newest model AC-130J, callsign SHADOW99 was spotted running loops around Seattle. Local air traffic control was not warned and many other aircraft had to be redirected out of the area, as it was flying directly over Seattle International Airport.

Prior to the deployment of the AC-130J, another aircraft called CN-235 was spotted in the area for weeks. It is a special forces intelligence gathering plane, and it ran an aerial stakeout of the same airport.
