Can someone explain what's the deal with damascus steel? Why do people say it's a lost technique?
Because they are trying to sell you something or romanticize the past.
It's a lost technique because:
A: They never passed on the method.
B: Wootz ore was mined out.
The ore had unique properties of composition that, when combined with the technique, resulted in the formation of carbon nanotubes in the steel that made for extremely high quality, durable blades.
Anything modern is what's actually Pattern Welding, which is a process of forging welding multiple steels into a single blank in layers, then forging, polishing, and etching to bring out the pattern.

You hear a dindu, dinduing his way into your home.
You reach for your dindu defense weapon, it's a...
It's a sword my dad bought when he was drunk then gave to me. Being in Bongistan, this is the nicest weapon I have.
Received pic related yesterday (silencerco hybrid) and I'm trying to decide how I want to mount it to one of my ARs. I already have the mount to use it on my CZ scorpion but I really want this can to function not only on that gun but an AR as well. At this point I need to either A. Buy a threaded barrel....looking for suggestions on that. Or B. Go with the ASR mount/muzzle device. What say you /k/?
Also general can thread.
I've decided that I should upgrade from the 5.56 and am ISO a 6,5 caliber rifle similar to the AR style. I'm pretty new and am not familiar with many brands, aside from colt and overpriced companies. Any recommendations for a $800 budget?
Also argue and shitpost about which caliber is best
All the full sized 6.5 cartridges (with the exception of 6.5 Swede) are pretty much marketed solely to long ranged target shooters.
6.5 Grendel is a snowflake that has little in the way of aftermarket support.
Either way you're going to want to invest in a reloading setup.
Already have a reloader. I have a Shit ton of land, with a homemade range extending to ~500 yards. I'd mostly use it for hunting, but I enjoy target shooting as well.
I've always gone with store brands,though, but am looking for a reliable, good bang for your buck brand that isnt in the local gun store.
sat youre a famous celebrity. Actor, musician, director, whatever
Obviously youre pro gun, so how do you stay pro gun without being blacklisted by Hollywood.
What do you carry for your EDC? Remember, places like /k/ will talk about you and associate your choice in guns to you from now on
I dont have any blogs, twitter accounts, facebooks, none of that shit. I dont have any right now anyway. Maybe like 1 just to keep stuff up on movies that im doing but thats it.
I never ever discuss anything political ever. When asked I say everyone is entitled to their own opinion and im entitled to keep mine to myself
When asked about guns I say that yes I do carry for my own protection, because I dont believe my life is worth more than a paid bodyguard simply because im famous. If others want a bodyguard thats fine but im uncomfortable with it. I believe that, so long as youre law abiding, you should be able to own any gun but you need to learn your local laws and practice with it so you know what youre doing. If anyone disagrees with me then whatever, thats their choice but I was asked my opinion
I carry sig perfection
That does look suspiciously like a holster.
Anyway, my job would be to entertain people not be a pretentious self righteous opinionated asshole.
I'd refuse to answer any philosophical questions about political issues. I'd only answer question that are like yes no questions or questions about factual things like, "Do you own a gun?"
Could a MBT sink a modern aircraft carrier? Or is the superstructure too thick/tough for the round to penetrate?
Ignore the fact that a mbt would never get within firing range or that it would get aniliated by aircraft before the carrier drifted that close to shore.
Hey k, long time nogunz lurker here, turning twenty one in August, I'm looking for some suggestions on my first handgun, for conceal carry. I'm pretty much set on a ten millimeter, because Missouri has lots of meth heads and
Anyway, I was thinking I just wanted a glock because they're supposed to be reliable, but I'm open to suggestions. What is the best 10 millimeter for conceal carry? Oh, and I'd like to spend less than 1600 buckaroos.
Have you seen the price of 10MM? Nevermind the fact that 9MM has been killing Jews and gypsies fine for a long time, but 9MM is a he'll of a lot cheaper. This equates to more practice time, and thus proficiency. Putting rounds on the target and in vital areas is more important than "I GOT A BYG DICK" one round takedown which you will probably miss in the heat of the moment anyways.
Also, form factor is another good point. The best gun to carry is one you will carry every day. If you got this full sized gun you eventually get tired of having this weight strapped to your side, unless you are a ham planet. I'd rather have a .380 pocket gun ill carry every day rather than a full sized gun I won't / can't carry every day. Crime doesn't take a brake when you decide you don't feel like carrying.
Cpt Daniel Glenn of the US navy has finished a monumental task - a half marathon in full EOD gear (that is, 38.5kg worth of bulky clothing).
So this is what peacetime military is up to. Whatever can pass the time, right?
Lloyd Scott ran the full 26 mile london marathon in nearly 100lbs of plate armour, while towing a 200lb sculture of a dragon behind him.
and raised 1.8 million pounds / 2.6 million dollars for charity in doing so.
Hi /k/. I don't mean this in a fedora way, but I'm not sure if I like semi autos. The reason I make this thread is because I'm really curious to see if anybody else feels the same way.
I can pull the trigger repeatedly on a semi auto, but it just isn't that fun. I'm starting to figure out about myself that my main draw to shooting itself, is the processes involved...that explains why I like single shots and bolt actions so much. I'm thinking I'd like BP shooting if I tried it, cos of all the work involved with that.
Who else feels this way?
I always have my backpack on me, in my car, or at my desk at work... I'm pretty much always within 100 feet of it

Pump action or SA for a HD shotgun?
You already have a disadvantage with low ammo capacity with most shotguns, why on earth would you limit yourself further with a single shot? Is it because you want to be special? Are you worried the criminal might judge you to be uncool?
