french counter terror and german counter terror use them, american helicopter pilots and mounted gunners use them as well IIRC.
most militaries issue goggles or glasses that protect from shrapnel, because shrapnel is more of a threat inna sandbox. For counter terror units kicking in doors, they have more of a concern taking a round to the face. Its not really useful for everyone to have a face shield.
Four hundred ducks for a lightly used S&W M&P Full size .40. This includes all original equipment that came with the range kit. Three mags, some speed loader, plastic sheath, +250 rounds. Is this a good deal or fair?
Have I not considered the glock 26 gen 4 enough?
Why do militia guys all have shit taste in gear and accessories for their guns? Also, militia cringe thread
Your thinking about it all wrong, they could have no gear. What kind of man would get into a pseudo warlike situation with out it? Carry mags and all the other shit in your 2 only pockets?
Ask me anything.
Hello /k/ I'm a noguns central slav but I need your advice.
With all this political crap going on my father persuaded my mom (she's a retired judge) to finally get gun license and apparently he's buying a gun.
Only he's sort of a germanboo (he has huge Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe assburgers watches these ww2 documentaries all the damned time) and he's now dead set on buying a fucking walther p38
I initially fucking laughed at him but I see the germans kept making these pistols until 2004 so there's something to it.

>It is a felony in New Jersey to manufacture, transport, or possess a sling shot
And everyone shit's on Californians who have to deal with a bullet button or go featureless.
Seriously, New Jersey just wants to convert it's civilian populace into state prisoners.
>"Excuse me sir. As the newest executive order states , I need to take your guns. Please comply calmly sir."
Are they worth it? It's kind of a pain in the ass when you get to round 13ish on a new 16 round mag.
Yes, for two main reasons:
1. Less time spent loading mags at the range = more time shooting at the range.
2. You can easily load mags with one with gloves on (good for those pesky crime scene investigators, also good if you don't like dirty fingers)
It may be a meme gun, but damn if it isn't great.
Just for shits I was taking 65 yard shots at a steel silhouette and making consistent hits. Really impressed with this little guy.
Who else /shield/ here?
Listen I just wanna thread about cool gun pictures okay? Please post uncommon pics, stuff that wouldn't normally be seen in "gun porn" threads.
Gonna post 17 more pictures of Gemini Customs heavily modified revolvers
Some of the filenames may point out some of the features of the gun, these are all taken from their site.
Where's the best place to order surplus fun parts from? Specifically I want to get a bakelite grip for my AK. I haven't had to order anything in a long time and the site I used to use went bellyup.
Just a few off the top of my head
>be advised, ebay and amazon may sell fake or replica products marketed as genuine, but very good deals can be had if you are an educated buyer.
Besides the bakelite grip, anythint particular you are looking for OP?
Is it because the combine the sheer engineering genius of the Germans with the practicality of the Soviets and the style of the Italians?
Frankly, the Vz-58 is the best rifle ever made by any metric and you would only argue against it because your such a slavaboo or nato dick sucker
Its a pretty good rifle, but it lacks development and aftermarket support. If it had came on the scene with the AR and AK, it would be a definite competitor.
I agree 100% with the aftermarket, we are hurting on that. All that shit is way to expensive and trying to emulate the AR market. Just running the numbers though, it is the best rifle ever made.
While I love my vz to death and I've put about 11,000 rounds through it over the past decade, I wouldn't call it the best rifle ever made by any metric.
Does anyone know where there are operational Catalinas?
I think the national air and space museum in VA has one in their restoration area, one of the guides said its one of the remaining planes that was AT pearl harbor.
though im not sure if it was a catalina or a bigger model
>WTF AMERICA WAKE UP!
Why do we need a better tank when what we have is sufficient.
You build a new tank. Enemy makes a missile that can kill it, and now everything below that tank in our storage is royally fucked when it hits combat.
Eh, I wouldn't say light tanks, but a heavier emphasis on IFV's like the Stryker or some of the new MRAP's. An RPG is gunna fuck up everything short of a MBT anyways, so just place defense in soft and hard kill counter measures instead of fuckheavy armor.
And yea the Abrams sucks gas like hoes sucks dick.
