For those who know, is Special Forces Assessment and Selection mostly along the lines of basically smoking you as hard as possible and he who doesn't quit gets to go on to the Q course?
Or Is it less strenuous in that way, and more along the lines of them picking you based on certain qualities?
Also, how does the whole becoming SF process differ for Officers? From what I understand, you could be from literally any branch in the army as an officer and get a shot at selection (Intel, Infantry, Ordnance, Engineer, Artillery, Air Defense Artillery, SIGINT, who knows...

What is the weapon for self-defense if I was innamedievaltimes.
What are you doing in medieval times? Just hanging out in town, fighting on the battlefield, dirt farming?
Just like a battle rifle beats the shit out of a snub nose revolver when it comes to self defense, a poleaxe is much better than a dagger, but you can't conceal a poleaxe. Different tools for different situations
>Mfw I wear army surplus clothes but have never shot a gun in my life
So i want to buy a 9mm CZ
Shot 200rds through one and loved it.
Anything I need to be aware of?
Get a SP-01; they're nicer to shoot and the tac rail is a good feature. Personally, I had a CZ but I realized a bit late that I like striker fired over hammer fired.
FWIW, a guy at CZCustom posted on here a bit ago about the CGW parts and how they've had some issues (despite them usually being very supportive of each other in most forums), so perhaps you should just stick with CZCustom parts if you want aftermarket internals.
Any good hiking or innawoods stories worth sharing /K/ommrades?
find this in your local wally world. wat do? buy or not buy?
I'm 23 years old; currently in a Wall Street occupation making a lucrative salary and I'm on the verge of quitting to do Marine Corps OCS. I've been in the working world almost a year now, feeling unhappy and unfulfilled. I've always felt a calling toward the military since a young age.
Anyone else on /k/ ever left a lucrative job to do something like this?
I have to give a presentation to a bunch of prospective master gunners on Tuesday about ammunition handling.
As an ammo tech and demo, the subject is something I can give in my sleep.
I need pictures of people doing bad things with ammo, especially 155 and up.
Did medieval warriors ever use axes over swords when they had a choice? What advantages besides price do axes have?
An axe is incredibly simple to use, and when it hits mail or light armor, either will splinter apart rings or cut through leather or padded cloth.
Slashing, stabbing, general utility in combat. An axe is extremely good at chopping and useless for anything else.
I posted that I wanted to get a 1911 as a first gun earlier and you guys pretty much shat on me.
>get a .22 (meme-tier)
>learn to shoot
>learn to take care of gun
Why bother? I could save money and just learn on the gun I want. What is so damn difficult about a 19elebben? And I'm definitely going to cc whatever the hell I end up getting. No point in waiting if you've got to learn sometime.
Looking for an iwb holster for my 5 inch 1911 and saw that pic related seemed like a good choice. Anyone have experience with Galco kydex iwb holsters? I'm looking to conceal carry. Obviously I have a large gun that will be more difficult to conceal and I am aware of that. Concealment wasn't my primary intent when I bought the gun I simply want to have the option.
Also general holster & carry thread.
What type of holster do you prefer? There's a pretty clear difference in comfort between IWB and OWB holsters, though if you're set on IWB I'd say go ahead and spend the money on a quality holster from either Comp-tac or stealth gear.
I carry in an alien gear cloak tuck and its pretty comfortable. The gun is slim enough that I wear all the same clothes and usually forget its there. I had to adjust the ride on the holster to as high as it could go; if it rides low then I feel it a lot when I sit and its quite uncomfortable. The only thing is that when I stand up I kind of have to pull my shirt down to make sure it doesn't catch on the grip, other than that its fine.
I carry at about 4:30
Somebody can recognise this gun?
Getting out of the military in 16 months and want to do something somewhat operator.
So far I have ATF, CPB and Capitol police in mind. Does anyone know anything or have experience about any of these?
Heck, I guess we could make this an operator job thread as well.
Figure this thread will probably die fast, considering it seemed a good idea to my drunk lanky ass, but what precautions does /k/ take when drunk?
Me, I take the magazine out of my handgun and leave it empty overnight putting the magazine out of sight, make sure my door is locked and avoid my handgun so I don't do something stupid.
Here's a picture of said handgun. Don't see enough live towards the p320 in my opinion.
So apparently this guy was the guy that inspired Schindler's List. In the film he didn't seem all that operator, but holy shit was the real Oskar Schindler (Oskar Dirlewanger) operator as fuck. He lead one of the most feared elite Waffen SS units of the entire war.
I don't get it. I discovered Oskar Schindler in real life was a straight up operator and wanted to share something that is not common knowledge with /k/.
Is he legit?
