Why does new ammo usually come scratched/dented?
Granted, I usually buy cheapo stuff like blazer, but even these federal HST are pretty scratched up.
Machining, storage, jostling?
I have a better question, what's the deal with these pictures? Are some cartridges really squared-off like this? Haven't seen any in real life or in video so I'm guessing it's a trick of the light but you never know.
Okay /k/, I need your help.
Could a propeller plane be deployed successfully if it was dropped vertically from a floating hangar? Say, if it were hanging from clamps inside a giant zeppelin with a big enough hole in the bottom to allow this sort of thing?
Basically, if the propellers were fired up before the thing was dropped, could a plane actually right itself after being dropped like this, provided sufficient height?
If this is their only argument then why are 9mm fags taken seriously?
>Hurr America only uses 9mm now becuz it's best
Ever notice how we haven't won a war since we stopped using the 1911?
Why don't we put this symbol (or any symbol) on our equipment anymore? The Bundeswehr still puts the Schwarzes Kreuz on their stuff. Commies still put the red star on their stuff.
>Why don't we put this symbol (or any symbol) on our equipment anymore?
Because we're the fucking U.S.A.
sig sauer autoloaders.
i can't help but think of them as cheap, ugly guns.
i'm sure they are reliable but honestly i think they are hi-point tier nigger guns.
Cheap? Not really compared to some other sidearms.
They are metal framed firearms and very robust so you are also paying for whatever semblance of Quality-assurance and Craftsmanship SIG has left.
I have not seen any "niggers" using sig autoloaders.
You will find Sigs and Glocks are probably two of the most popular brands for sidearms with law enforcement and among special forces.
>i think they are hi-point tier nigger guns.
It's because you've never held one, shot one or even seen one in person.
Well it looks like FN is finally going to be moved out of the limelight along with KAC...Kraut based weapons when?
I just don't understand desu. I get replacing M14s or whatever DMR the army used to use with an AR10, but this is simply replacing an AR10 with an AR10. They tout the QD suppressor as a feature, but M110s have them too. The weight loss isn't impressive either since the M110 barrel is like 3 inches longer than the G28s and has a bunch less plastic parts. What an inscrutable waste of cash.
M14 was not a great choice but they made do with what they had.
M110 was an excellent replacement for a variety of reasons.
It seems that this new rifle is not offering anything except a new HK contract (along with their 416 and IAR contracts)
I am a fan of pistons but the M110 had no issues. Now we have a heavier and less accurate weapon for the sake of a minor increase in reliability and a major decrease in logistics.
So /k/ does anyone here have actual experience with deployment? I'm currently in the ARNG, and was wondering if anyone can tell me what the process before it involves before you leave?
You'll be on active guard orders for a few weeks packing up the armory. Then a couple months of pre-mobilization training at JRTC or NTC or whatever, then head out.
*it probably isn't even like this anymore, I deployed back in 07
I've read a few articles on Syria, and I have a basic understanding of what led the conflict to start. But I can't seem to find a clean, direct and simplified synopsis on the situation.
>Who's fighting who?
>Who's on what side and why?
>Where's Al Queda and the Taliban in all of this?
Now that I've read about pic related, I don't know why the U.S. wouldn't wait until ISIS neutralized Assad before eliminating them and helping...

Probably the same reason why Russia went into Syria to unfuck the incompetent Syrians, exhausted Iranian and Hezbolla just as the US went to Iraq to unfuck the incompetent Iraqis.
Sandmonkey jihadis vs. semi civilized Russian aligned dictator
Russia and Iran are on Assad's side
all the west are supporting the jihadis, because muh realpolitik
Taliban is way the fuck in Afghanistan, taking over now the Americans are gone
Al Qaeda is one of the main forces against Assad
Despite what American and Western European media may say, there are honestly no "moderate" or "democratic" rebels left. Among Assad's opposition, Al-Qaeda's JAI are the relative moderates if that tells you anything
One simple thing you have to understand:
American foreign policy in the Middle East is owned by Israel.
As a result, everything America does there is directly or indirectly on behalf of Israel.
The Assad clan has been a thorn in the side of Israel for decades now. They were plotting to "bring democracy" to Syria since 2003, but only decided to initiate an uprising using Muslim Brotherhood pawns in 2011.
Ever since it's been a shitfest, neither side has the capability...

How does /k/ get rid of squirrels?
I can't even shoot my supressed Gamo .22, since the moment my neighbors see me walking out into the yard to pick the bastards up, they call the cops.
So instead, I bought a 36" blowgun, made some darts out of drywall nails and pipe cleaners, and coated the bastards in pepper spray.
The squirrels seem a lot less eager to eat my birdseed now.
I use a 177 air rifle for rabbits at my house, nice & quiet and does the job
Shame you have to resort to primitive weapons OP, can't you get a privacy fence or tell your neighbors to git fuct
P320 Full size vs Carry
Which one is better for general purpose use?
Hey /K/ its me again. Started a thread last night and i feel like it was a nice break from the general AKvs AR bullshit so lets see what your /K/ooking? I got another nice steak and brussel sprouts cooking with ny derringer again!
Its honestly what it is. A hundred to a hundred fifty dollar derringer. Fuckers loud though, and much more pop than you'd expect from a 9mm, even as a derringer if that makes sense. And of course its near impossible to hit a beer bottle from 15 feet. But i like it. Its a cute little conversation starter/plinker
Why does the Death use a scythe?
It isn't a very efficient weapon.
Well, it finally happened. I had an ND the other day. I recently moved to little Nigeria and there are nogs everywhere, breaking into random houses and cars damn near every day. I thought I heard someone in my house and I decided to grab my 12 gauge and do a sweep, as I pass the bathroom the toilet begins to fill it's tank starting me. So I spun around and blasted the shitter with some 00 buckshot. There is my story of me being a dumbass, there wasn't even anyone in my house.
I know /pol/ has a favorable opinion on Russia.
What about /k/?
wound to the hand from a 45, pic related
name one reason 45 is superior to other self defense rounds
>name one reason 45 is superior to other self defense rounds
settle down, beavis. they're all about the same size with about the same characteristics. use the one that makes your nether region tingle.
