I was under the impression that nuclear winter was a myth. I know OPpenheimer has said th8s, but are any points in this video valid?
Minute Physics is actually really mediocre because like most YouTube Science teachers, they go into a lot of 'what' and leave out most of the 'how' or 'why.' Rather he gives only very cursory glimpses into otherwise very complicated systems. But this particular video he seems to be shilling hard as fuck for some anti-nuclear campaign, rather than try to inform people.
Minute Physics sucks and you shouldn't watch his videos.
His understanding of the topic is, as we could say, "minute".
Time to the tale of my makeshft matchlock I tested today, I reckon.
I might be slow, since I am trying to crop and convert some videos of the shoot to webm
Anyways, what we have here is a peice of copper pipe JB welded onto 1m of stainless steel schedule 80 .5" pipe to make a flash pan. The touchhole is 1/16", and that is a 2.5" bolt screwed into one end that I got threaded.
Specs on the pipe. Also, the internet says its bursting pressure is 26,250 PSI, which should be more than double 100 grain black powder + .50 calibre round ball, which is what I used.
How good is the RADAR stealth of modern warships? I was thinking of a scenario where a navy vessel was maneuvering close to a merchant vessel, which may or may not be able to detect it with RADAR.
Basically my questions are these:
>How well can the S-band and X-band slotted waveguide antennas typically mounted on merchant vessels detect stealth vessels?
>Has there ever been an incident related to this?
Yes. They are very useful for navigating.
I'm about to go to my aunts house who has a bunch of guns from her father (a huge gun collector) and I'm gonna buy some from her.
The two things I'm looking for that I know she has are
1. Elephant guns
2. Tons of all matching mauser rifles
But I know she has some 60 guns total.
I'll be posting pics all day
Is getting a lathe, mill, and FFL/SOT cheaper than a full auto sear?
Is it possible to kill a bear in CQB?
Definitley, he's one of my favorite actors. Honestly can't think of a bad film with him in. When I saw that bear cub I just knew shit was going down.
How? I thought bears were near unstoppable rape trains?
New milsurp thread!
Name me a better LMG from the WW2 era. You can't.
inb4 people post jam machines like the MG42
What does /k/ think of the cellphone gun?
Well /k/ it finally happened. I had to yell a man to the ground at gunpoint while I was naked.
What does /k/ think of the British Armed Forces?
as a Murican i think the soldiers are probably pretty decent guys that are good at their jobs
their elite groups like the SAS are among the best in the world at secret squirrel stuff
i don't blame the soldiers for their govt's issues like lack of funding or a fucking ramp
This thread is going to be terrible.
Trolls, trolls everywhere.
The British Armed Forces is a high trained, well equip (for the most part) specialised force with limited global power projection.
Shares the same power bracket as France, though there's a difference in areas of focus. France is highly capable in some places that the UK is not, and the UK is highly capable in some places that France is not, but that's what allies are for.
Hey there /k/
Yesterday, a "refugee" assaulted me and my sister. I've always been one to "live and let live", but that's enough. I want to buy myself a handgun for self defense, but I don't know if a pistol or a revolver are better, what caliber, etc.
I recently purchased a Makarov. Small and reliable.
This is going to be my first handgun.
Sorry to hijack the thread, but what are some essentials to have for firearm maintenance? Do you just shoot and clean it?
Can anyone ID this rifle? It's in possession of a roommate who none of us trust and I'd like to remove the firing pin from the bolt, but I don't know what rifle it is to properly disassemble the bolt.
So apparently this is how T-90 looks after being hit by TOW 2A. Looks like the tank got away with slight exterior damage and the only part that appears to be broken from this angle is Shtora. Would the outcome be the same after Javelin impact?
Unfortunately I live in Communist CA. What's the stupidest gun law in your state/country? Mine- 30 day waiting period between buying handguns.
WA State here (not King County shit hole though).
Worst law is the ffl transfer on private sales, but it's not enforced at all. Plus my FFL is an 80 year old guy who does it out of his garage and doesn't really charge for private transfers.
It's honestly a bit of a toss-up. The ban on guns that never made it past prototype phase like the G11 ranks up there, though.
The fact that you can shoot a Russian anti-tank gun on your property but not a fucking .22 short pistol is pretty dumb.
