/k/ how real is that fight ?
is this really how fights looked then? or is it the same as boxing vs real life fight ?
I don't think scholars have reached an agreement on what real combat was like.
I imagine that the grappling might be somewhat similar but if I had to guess in real combat it was probably a lot more attempts at stabbing and knocking down and executing rather than whacking armored plate with a sword.
yeah, ive been talking to a friend who is deep into reenactment thing and he said that "no kill" tournaments looked pretty much like this.
but in real fight with sharp and pointy swords there was in fact more stabbing. and also once you are down its usually over.
was wondering if anyone could confirm it.
I just binge watched several lectures by John Nagl and others who studied the conflicts from the past decade and a half. However, I didn't really get any satisfying information out of these lectures as these guys mostly talk about what mistakes were made by the different administrations and generally politics behind certain decisions in Iraq/Afghanistan . So my question is, do you guys know any literature, online lectures, online sources on the subject of counter-insurgency and lectures learned in the Middle East in these past years on an operational level?

The author gives examples of tactics/strategies used by the insurgents against the coalition in Afghanistan/Iraq.

Morning gents; lets have a good old fashioned gun porn thread. Everything is a go. Ill chain post to get the ball rolling.
Yeah baby. My nipples are as hard as sling mounts.
Post your best tactical maneuvers here
Not mine, but my grandpa has a concieled carry philosophy.
He carries at least 5 guns on him, 3 of which are glock 17s. His idea is to spray as many bullets at the attacker/attackers until something hits. He carries at least 4 mags for them too.
He calls it the wall of lead technique.
Why does it matter the incredibly specific gun you use, doesn't any old decent gun get the job done?
I hear that masterpiece arms ingrams actually have pretty nice light triggers now, and I can't think of anything that can mount the suppressor any further back than that.
Talk me into/out of getting one as a home defense SBR with a full size 9mm supressor on it.
The only Ingham you'll ever need is right here
just found this in the local hock shop.
My guess is that its a mass produced 'antique' from India.
Anyone know anything thing else about it ?
Im going to give it to me ol mum
She is into kooky old 'oriental' collectibles
Doesn't look like it's actual pattern welded steel judging by this picture
Stick it on display somewhere that doesn't show this side of the blade, I can't imagine that it'll be too good as a knife
Nuke Thread? Nuke Thread.
A few threads a ago OPpenheimer posted a list of book on nuclear strategy, and if anyone has a copy of it, it would be appreciated.
Now that the dust has settled, what went wrong?

Hi /k/, I have a question about this used vest I bought.
There's this strap-buckle thing here that doesn't seem to fit to anything else.
But, there are these wrapped-up straps on the shoulders that, similarly, don't seem to go anywhere
So I put 2 and potato together and decided that they must go together, but this seems wrong.
(pic horizontally flipped for consistency)
What is that strap-buckle thing for?
Whats up /k/
I bought my first AK today. I got a RAS47. I put 100 rounds through it after I got it home, cleaned it, and mobbed to the woods.
What should I do now? I want to stain the furniture dark green. Anyone have tips about how to do that?
Trade it in for a WASR10 or sell it and save up for an Arsenal, or hold off and hope that century learns their lesson and fixes them. I had very high hopes for the RAS and C39 only to be shot down :(
I researched it and it seemed like it was basically the same as a wasr only made in america. I saw a youtube where it held up pretty well after a 5k round torture test. I take really good care of my rifles so I figured it would be a good starter ak for the next few years til i get more money and stop being such a poorfag.
/k/ likes to shit all over the ras47 for the cast trunnions and bolt carrier. I'll admit that the wasr is better, but you won't notice the difference until at least a few thousand rounds in, and I doubt you'll shoot that many. From my limited experience, it's a good, accurate rifle.
I'm a Lieutenant on the Brazilian Army. 3.ª Army Division; 6.ª Armored Infantry Brigade.
Basically i get to scratch my balls all day everyday and eventually do some training on one of the Leopards 1A5
pic related, it's the toy i get to play with.
Am I welcomed in this board?
>that feel when you get your gun back from the evidence locker
They did, and both magazines.
Driving home at night, made a wrong turn in an unfamiliar area. Got my car stuck on some weird train tracks, cops come and I'm outside my vehicle assuming they're going to help. They decide I look like I've been drinking, took my USPC45 I was carrying, toss me in the can. Months later they finally get the video up, and I don't look drunk or speak slurred in any manner. Case dismissed, got gun back.
