I'm 5'6" and skinny
Will this have a significant impact on me being able to join to the Australia Defence Force
Looking to become an engineer (starting engo degree next year) that does go out in to combat.
I can't seem to be able to find the Janes series of books on the military and such, with out them having a fuck huge price.
Any one know where I can get them for free, or at least cheap?

Thinking about buying this carrier. Any thoughts? Ideas on others I may not know about? Trying to stay in the under 2 hundred dollar range on the carrier.
I just want to show off my new purchase.
Regular 300$ CAD, but got it for 180$ CAD
I was more concerned about this shit job here.
And I also confused why this hole is at the end of the underside of the barrel.
Since Russia’s involvement in the Ukraine conflict in 2014, nearby Baltic states have been on high alert. Estonia, the smallest country in the region, signed a military equipment deal worth 138 million euros ($147 million) last December — the largest procurement in its history.
The country also has a growing militia, known as the Estonian Defense League, made up of 15,000 volunteers. They take part in war scenario exercises, with many of the members keeping firearms of their own at home. Should Estonia's sovereignty be threatened, the militia will be called upon...

Fucking love you, Esto-bros! You're the only people really understanding what's really going on at the eastern border, and acting accordingly.
greetings from the other side of the gulf. Would volunteer if SHTF, assuming our borders wouldn't get raped simultaneously.
I want to get a job and get ahold of some funs by taking courses and stuff.
Any idea what my first fun should be? I was thinking about getting a handgun and then a rifle. I live in Commiefornia so I'll need advice that pertains to that state.
Also, first time shooting tips would be appreciated too. I know you're not supposed to hold your breath like in Cawadooty and you're supposed to steady your breathing and exhale as you shoot.
Thank you /k/omrades
I think a gun first-timer should probably start off with a rifle, they are significantly easier to get a feel for. And I know this may sound retarded to you, but maybe get a .22 so you can start off not having to worry so much about the kickback.
I've heard lots of advice saying that .22's are the way to go for plinking and first time shooting.
I assumed that handguns would be easiest to learn first, but I'm no professional.
If anything though, I'd like to get a feel for both at the beginning.
If I joined Diamond Dogs, I probably wouldn't be in the Combat Unit ;_;7
Most likely Intel or Support.
How much .22 is too much .22?
Is it ideal to stockpile, for future/shtf/scare scenarios?
is it safe to store rimfire cartridges like this?
22lr is about the last thing I'd ever stockpile 10's of thousands of rounds with intentions of shooting it a decade or two later.
Keep ahead on the numbers enough to ride out an ammo panic, sure, but that's about it. I wouldn't go an inch beyond that with rimfire crap primers and poorly sealed cartridges.
Centerfire ammo on the other hand, I'd trust that a lot more. And plenty of that comes in spam cans or is sealed at the primer/bullet anyway vs any outside air.
Because hunting would be an important source of food in a hypothetical SHTF scenario, a SHTF rifle should be accurate and powerful enough to hunt and fight with. That rules out many "black guns"--.223 may lack the power for large game, especially at long distances--and assault rifles, which are not very accurate, but it includes almost any good hunting rifle. Those worried about capacity can buy aftermarket extended magazines.

I think B.L.A.C.K. pulled it off pretty well.
Hey. I'm also posting this in /tg and /sci.
I'm working on a crafting system for a tabletop rpg akin to the Witcher. I'd like to keep as scientifically accurate as possible but when it came time to start figuring out explosives I hit a roadblock.
I was wondering if anyone could explain explosives like frag grenades, c4, explosive gels (like batman's in the arkham games) in a simple way for someone who took highschool science about a half a decade ago.
The key things I'm looking to are:
chemical/catalyst + catalyst/chemical = how much explosive force
Sorry for my lack of understanding, but that's why I'm here. To learn.
does anybody have a gif or webm showing how the internals of a lever action shotgun works
(like the winchester 1887)
or any other guns but im looking for that one
In your opinion what is the best SKS variant?
Never owned one, there is a great deal near me on a yugo SKS, never issued, comes with lots of extras for $400
I've heard the yugo ones are pretty low on the SKS totem pole. Is that because of how common they are or are they just shitty?
i just enlisted, was wondering if anyone had worked directly with HUMINTS and could give me a little more information as to what they do. i've obviously researched on my own and have a little more than basic understanding as to what the duties are.
God I hope your recruiter didn't lie to you.
You will sit in a TOC reading debriefs and countless documents, look through hundreds of pictures and decide what is useful and what is trash.
You might get to actually talk with people on occasion to get some intel yourself, but it is seldom.
Then you will tell a shitload of officers what you think of the intel you looked at. Have fun.
They're garbage, only thing they have going for them is their warranty
