ITT : Guns that should still be in service.
Meanwhile in South Africa
ITT: We talk about medieval and general pre 17th century arms and armor. Swords, axes, polearms and all that stuff are fair game. Post your favorite weapons and discuss!
These threads usually take a while to really start.
I like rapiers and side swords for some reason
-with an off hand dagger it might work ok
The ambush is set, the signal is given. You jump from your concealed position as you and your enemy meet eyes in the millisecond before his life ends.
What do you yell? what is your war cry?
where has all the Milsurp gone?
It's with a heavy heart that I come to you. My best friend and service dog Scout has been diagnosed with cancer. I can't afford his chemotherapy treatments. I love my /k/9 and I don't want to live without him...
Please see my original thread in /an/
If you have a /k/9 and know my feels, please help save my best friend. Thanks
Pic very related.
If you feel like helping us...

It has been years since a meteor shower almost destroyed earth. There are no governments, just really small communities created by few survivors. Food is scarce, and earth isn't that green anymore. But there is hope. Svalbard Global Seed Vault is a seedbank on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen near Longyearbyen in the remote Arctic Svalbard archipelago. I happen to have a ship, and I have all the intentions of doing an expedition to that island so I can help my community make earth green again. But I am certain I am not the only one to embark on this expedition, honestly...

You are now aware that 5,000 species of insect are discovered each year.
You are now aware that the 200 year old endangered species list fits on a business card.
You are now aware that you are full of shit.
Let's talk about our favorite medieval/ non- firearm renaissance weapons. I'm personally a big fan of the poleaxe. It's versatile, hefty enough to get put through a lot of abuse without breaking (the steel parts anyway), and just plain cool looking. It's also badass because it was a knight weapon inspired by farming equipment peasants would fight with.
I love me some axes. Not exactly as flexible as a sword or a poleaxe, but whatever.

i...i thought it was a phase
Did you fall into a progressive downward spiral of strange pornography and fetishes?
Heh. I remember spending the entirety of my freshmen Economics course finalizing my transition from /b/ to the other boards. That was five years ago.
I can't remember the last time I was on /b/, but I CAN remember that the economics teacher actually thought that women made $0.73 for every dollar that men made. And she somehow didn't seem to think that if that were true, there'd never be a man hired ever.
/k/ related "the feels" thread. perferably military oriented.
I come here to ask what is some literature that should be in every /k/ommando's /k/ollection?
At the moment this is what I have
1) the art of war
2) unintended consequences
3) roadside picnic
4) the turner diaries
5) sas survival handbook
6) TM 31-210 Improvised Munitions Handbook
Add more to the /k/ollection, thanks
You sound like a real /k/unt trying to fit into some sort of malformed idea of board /k/ulture and you should probably fuc/k/ off.
Also Turner Diaries is shit and not /k/ at all which you would know if you actually read it and weren't 14.

Just anything funny and related to /k/, greentexts, pictures, retoasts, I wanna see the best parts.
Because most of my military firefights knowledge comes from vidya and basic info books I have the following 2 questions
1) Where do (professional) soldiers put their empty magazines? I don't think they simply drop them away like in games and movies unless something really urgent happens.
2) Ok, so the enemy is destroyed right? So you have shitloads of corpses with their weapons still possibly intact if they weren't blown up to pieces. Im sure nobody leaves them behind. Is there a military unit tasked to sweep up and gather dead enemies' guns & ammo?
Not a mil fag but want to know, i've heard different things in regards to both. I think that's point of the drop bag on a PC or rig and second I want to say checked for safety (ie they really dead and not trapped) then medical guys clear up. Least logically speaking.
Again my advice is just based on varried stories from vets of different eras.
1)Depends, if it's a life or death split second decision close quarter firefight, you're going to drop your empty mags, if not, you put them back in your pouch follower-up
2)Usually have people designated in each squad handling epw's, securing weapons, and dealing with casualties.
Kurdish female soldiers are getting their asses kicked by ISIS...literally.
