How hard is it really to get into special forces?
Delta, Rangers, JTF-2, etc.
What do they look for? Do you go to them and tell them you're interested? Do they look at how you interact with your fellow soldiers? Is there testing done aside from stuff on the range that would make them pick you over someone else?
Are they essentially handpicking soldiers with specific traits out of the platoons or is it kind of open to apply for the courses? I heard anyone, including Canadians can apply for the Rangers course.
They're the best we have in Canada and incredibly elusive. Hard to find out much of anything about them in comparison to other special forces but last I heard is they're training Kurdish snipers right now.
What are your opinions on the M113?
Amazing when not compared to other more specialized vehicles. Good for those who don't wanna spend much but wanna have a multi platform vehicle. Just don't expect that it having a gun means that its gonna be an unstoppable killing machine
Is SAD SOG really as spooky as everyone thinks it is?
Probably just dudes. Worked with normal CIA and the dude was actually quite outgoing and liked stupid shit like Family Guy and whatnot.
You turn game face on and off, and sometimes it helps to have a non-spooky personality.
Most spookiest dudes are DOD civilians anyway.

What is the purpose of co-witnessing?
How hard would this be? Presuming we can get all the gear we need out there, what consequences would it have? What countries would try to intervene? Does Sealand have any form of military protection of it's own? How many /k/ommandos would it take?
UK would have none of it and they'd send out elements of the Royal Navy to tell you to piss off, actually firing on the Royal Navy is just going to give you a severe case of dead.
Hey /k/, I was hoping you could help me understand a statement that I keep seeing around the internet. I keep seeing people say that 9mm has been able to close the gap between it and .40 or .45 due to recent improvements in bullet technology/design. In my opinion, this idea doesn't make any sense; why would the bullet technology be advancing for 9mm but stagnating for .40 or .45? if this technology is applied to these calibers, does the gap return? What are you guys' thoughts on this?
Technology hasn't happened, people just started actually testing ballistics and realizing that handguns suck. 40 and 45 are only better when using ball, with a JHP, it's all the same, anyone who tells you otherwise doesn't know the first thing about terminal ballistics.
It means modern bonded JHP's and powder choices, as well as +p rated guns becoming the standard allow 9x19 comperable performance through barriers and tissue. Before it was pretty much .380 tier.
And even now with new guns and things like the extreme penetrator from LD the .380 is becoming a viable option as well.
Are there any rifles out there like a Martini-Henry that fire a modern cartridge?
There are quite a few Martini rifles in .22lr and .410.
Martini-Enfield rifles are in .303 and will handle safely the relatively mild commercial ammo of today so long as it's in good and proper condition (as in get a gunsmith to check it).

Are they shit?
Hi /k/ /b/ here just wanted you to know we were thinking about you while we fucked with fags.
Is it better to use an AR or a handgun for home defense? Why?
Doesn't producing our military equipment in China expose the US military to potential sabotage?
wait, this is news to me. is the whole round from china or the internals they put inside them? also yes, that is a terribad idea either way getting your military shit from china.
>you'll never own one of these babys
Do you reload, /k/? I've been looking in to it and I can't really see any benefit to it. I can get 500 rds of good quality 5.56 for $140 from my local reloader and it would cost me about that to make the same amount, not to mention labor and actually buying all the shit to do it.
As for building precision/match ammo, it seems that factory ammo these days is just as good, if not better than handloads, and cheaper as well.
Not trolling, I was actually thinking reloading sounded like a kind of nice and relaxing way to satisfy my autism, but I need /k/ to justify it.
Historians of /k/,
Can you separate truth from memery and tell this newfag what this round really was, why it really died, and what the world might have looked if it had turned out otherwise?
Thank-you for your useful and loquacious answer
