How effective are flying kicks in martial arts?
Depends on the sport, situation, and skill. When I used to do full contact TKD I got two knock outs with flying kicks. You see it being used in TKD, Karate, and you could find it in K-1/PRIDE. There's a lot of power behind it it, and if you set it up right and can get your opponent to move out of position (fake a low kick so they drop their hands for example) you can have straight access to their head.
However in sports like MMA you can be left wide open and especially when you're tired it's...

You're now the President of the US. How do you fix gun control?

Do silencers or suppressors degrade?
Yes, the soft baffles wear out and the lubrication fluid also needs to be replenished.
The baffle wear is not correctable; eventually, even with proper maintenance, the suppressor's performance will degrade.
Over a very long time line they slowly fill with debris, reducing their internal volume and effectiveness. This is very very many rounds fired, and not being cleaned.
Older designs used wipes and filler material that did degrade fairly rapidly and were intended to be replaced.
If I use this as my CC and actually had to use it would the media fuck me hard?
Let's say you were in the Bataclan during the latest IS attack. You smelled the shit coming and managed to sneak in your favorite handgun just for the fuck of it. It is fully loaded but you have no other ammo reserve.
Abdul and his friends come in, kill some frogs and order everyone to lay down on the floor. From this moment on, what do you do?
Who makes the most reliable 7.62x39 AK drums? Are the korean ones worth the steel theyre made out of?
Is there a reason to have women in the military outside of a few limited specialized jobs?
Do they bring any benefits to combat?
What causes more damage from an RPG: the shrapnel or the explosion?
Today in Australia, a man was arrested with a Thompson SMG. The news have been running with this since, with the assistance of NSW Police.
But, there is a problem with the line being spewed by the Police, and regurgitated in the media... This isn't a Thompson SMG, it's a Denix imitation.
This is how retarded Australia has become. A fake toy gun is a national news story.
/k/ommandos that have seen combat deployments, was it all worth it in the end?
if you could do it all over again, would you do anything differently?
>Was it all worth it in the end?
No, i didn't volunteer for this type of work.
>Would you do anything differently?
There's no different ways to do the things i did, there was no room for error anyways.
This thread is for pictures you've take while deployed. Anything goes.
Vacation was good finally got fully unpacked, I'm looking to buy another gun and got 800-1100 to spend, any recommendations? Really looking for a range toy preferably a revolver or some semiauto rifle
This recent edition of Military History has the cover story of "Was Rommel a Fraud?"
The title of the article, by David Zabecki, is "Rethinking Rommel" and has the eyecatch of "While the German field marshal was undoubtedly a superior tactical commander, his skills didn't carry over into the strategic realm of operations."
So, what are your thoughts on this, /k/?
I can't think of any specific examples, but Antony Beevor (author of a lot of good WW2 books, he knows his onions) thinks that Rommel and Monty were the two most overrated generals of the war.
