Maybe /k/ can enlighten me,
Why do people love butterfly knives so much? They just seem useless and gaudy to me. Is there something important i'm missing about them?
Is anybody here involved with the American Mountain Men Association? What is it like? Looks pretty based desu.
I have a question /k/.
How important is actual combat experience to an army?
Does it make them, all other things roughly being equal, significantly more effective than an army that hasn't had real combat experience in a long time?
What sort of things do they learn as a result of being in combat that you can't learn from war games? What did the Russian Army learn from its war in Georgia for example?
How big of an advantage would it be to the US that the US military has been fighting wars for decades if it fought an army like the PLA, that...

Generals with experience > Generals with none/limited
Equipment that's been tried and confirmed on the field and in battle > Equipment that has just gone through testing and whatever
Simple as that anon.
Nobody knows how well something works for real until it starts flinging live ammo at something that's flinging live ammo back.
that's the case be it planes, tanks, equipment, doctrine, training program, or the quality of your officers/NCOs.
You don't necessarily need experience
However experience teaches you what works from what doesn't
Proper doctrine, tactics, training & good equipment will trump an experienced army any day.
Practical testing & large scale exercises can be done
It's just usually not common because there are bureaucratic incentives of not "rocking the boat".
I hope this is /k/ related enough, and I don't think I'm breaking any rules.
A friend of mine said he'd make a Mauser 98k (any WWII rifle really, but I like the 98k) if I got him prints for one, I'd just need to pay him $200. So I'm looking for blueprints/ schematics of the Mauser 98, do they exist? If so where to find them?
As far as I know this is legal btw, but I'm not fully versed in gun laws, so I may be wrong. Any help is fully appreciated.
How the fuck is he going to make one without the immense amount of specific machinery required to build the various steel parts/action of the mauser rifle.
How will he BUILD a barrel?
Will he form the springs himself?
So i bought a MAS 49/56 for $400
Did I do gud /k/?
What's the worst recoiling gun you've fired /k/? In terms of felt recoil.
Mine: 3" sabot slugs fired from a remshit 870
or s&w model 29 4" barrel with hand loads so hot they cracked the brass. Neither were really that bad though.
A 686 with 158 .357 grain in it.
Not too bad, but it was loud as fucking hell compared to anything else.
It's hard to explain, because the recoil wasn't exactly "worse" than the .357, but 9x18 blowback guns really "snap" a lot worse, and beat the FUCK out of my hand webbing. PA63 was the worst for this with the single stack; the cz82 not so much.
I'm off work now and feel like I been going nowhere and always had the thought in the back of my mind about becoming a Private Investigator/Detective. In Texas it seems pretty easy compared too a lot of other places in the country and world too get a license or job at a agency. I know the work ain't all/at all gonna be hard boiled misadventures or be all that glamorous.
Any suggests or reasons I should go through with it? I'm a night person, I'm keen too detail and reading people, good at doing mundane and repetitive shit. Got a Colt detective special...

I am a firefighter/paramedic.
I pull a few OT shifts a month which nets me a 6 figure income.
I have lots of time off.
With my income and time off I can pursue firearms as a hobby and am not limited to poor fag guns.
Be an adult and get a real job and stop asking a Turkish cartoon video board to critique jobs you will probably never ever have.
If the nazis were around in the 50's would they make rotors like this?
Alright, we've done the best now lets do the worst. What is the worst Special Forces group in the world?
I'm talkin borderline 10 year olds with AKs
What are the best instructional videos out there? Which instructors are well qualified?
I've seen magpul and travis haley, their videos are very detailed.
I wish gabe suarez didn't go nut job
Avoiding yeager like the plague, no need to warn me
Why brah? why you avoiding Yeager brah? He's one of the best instructors out there brah! Brah don't you know just how awesome he really is brah?
Brah i mean he's got true combat expeience under his belt brah! His name is Yeager, like Jeager in Jeagerbombs! Hes the bomb brah! And a porn star wanted to look just like him brah! How awesome is that brah!?!?!?!?!
This. How do you actually shoot guns properly? I have 3 now and have had zero instruction other than randoms at the range. I've spent more time looking for DESIGNER furniture for my firearms than I've actually spent learning how to shoot better.
I love how the kind freak out about open carriers. Most people don't open carry. The Texans carrying rifles into Walmart were protesting the lack of open carry handgun laws (fun fact: they won). If you attack open carriers you're attacking your own rights.
Consider this your daily reminder.
I don't have issue with open carriers, it's their choice and life to do what they want without causing harm to others. The same goes for the guys that dress up in black chaps, cowboy hats, and rainbow shit and let the world know they are gay.
Funny thing is, both of that shit happens a lot in Texas.
>Paying $20,000 for a piece of metal that costs $20 to make.
>Settling for outdated hardware that's over 30 years old and not getting any younger
>Screwing law abiding citizens over this hard
Can we please just start a petition to get rid of the '86 ban when the Unstumpable gets into office? You can keep your $200 cuck stamps, but FFS, these laws protect nobody.

Ausfag babbys first rimfire.
So /k/ I'm an Ausfag looking at my first rimfire .22 just for target shooting and maybe small game eventually. In my searches I've found Norinco, cheap Chinese copies of a K98 and they look breddy cool, mainly because I like old shit.
Anybody had any experience with Norincos?
From reviews I've seen, they're apparently pretty decent for a Chinese shit. Are they good or just a meme?
