If you have a CHL is that information displayed when a cop runs your DL?
Is shooting .22lr rifles fun?
so, these exist
costs only about $10-20k, my dad really wants one since it snows a lot at his place in wisconsin and he's getting older
anyone have experience with them?
Couldn't this be easily replaced by an ATV & a snow machine?
I wouldn't want what is essentially a one-off wheelchair if I ever intended to use it, good luck getting spares. you can practically rebuild any cheap sled at tractor supply.
Alrighty folks, here it is. Myself and a friend of mine have decided that we are going to attend a sniper challenge course next year and I'm in the market for a rifle. I have decided on a Ruger Precision Rifle, but I can't decide between 6.5 CM and .308. I have made a pros and cons list in order to help make the decision. Please feel free to add pros, cons, give feedback, opinions, or just talk shit.
6.5 CM Pros:
-resistant to weather factors
6.5 CM Cons:
-low barrel life

Virtual BSOD for radar software could delay USAF's full deployment of fighter.
>In an episode of CBS' techno-procedural series CSI:Cyber that aired in January, pilots were forced to power off and power back on an airliner's flight computer to regain control from a hacker. As preposterous as that cold-boot of avionics sounds, it's something that test pilots have had to do with the F-35A "Lightning II" Joint Strike Fighter's radar system—not because of a hack but because of a software problem that causes the radar...

Can anyone provide any insight on how I should go about planning an OCONUS leave trip that I plan to take after my Navy A school ends in mid-July?
I haven't seen my girl in 8 months and I don't wanna fuck up getting everything nice and approved in a timely fashion.
I understand I will need medical screening, approval, talk to several people, etc. but I'm really not sure who to talk to here at TSC great lakes to get the ball rolling.
Give me ideas /k/. I know you'll have some good ones.
Can anyone identify these boots? I got them second hand for $40 and have had them for 2 years and theyve been amazing although they have no brand or anything
They have writing on thhe top of the cuff that reads 9.5RJ4-97
Why come did they have rope attaching their handguns to their bodies?
Well you fucking foreigner.
It was so he wouldn't lose his fucking gun in battle.
Now git out.
Hey /k/, I'm looking into buying my first firearm (specifically for home defense, but also recreational purposes) and I don't really know all that much about guns. I'm looking for a handgun or shotgun, preferably on the cheaper side, but reliable as possible. I was looking yesterday at a compact 9mil and a few .40 cal that were on the smaller side. I'd also like to be able to concealed carry if possible. If there's anyone who knows enough to give me a good recommendation, I'd appreciate it! Thanks guys.
Compact 9mil. Go to a gun store and fingerfuck the pistols you fancy to see how they fit in your hand. Even try a store with an indoor range and try shooting them. Anything but Tarus or HiPoint and you're good.
yeah, I liked the way the 9mil felt, even though it was on the smaller side. It definitely felt like it would pack a decent punch. The s&w was a little pricey though. Any brands that are known to be reliable but are also cheap?
CCW's with short barrels chambered in 9x19, .40 S&W or .45 ACP do not perform significantly better than .380 ACP (especially with modern bullet geometries) while also packing significantly more recoil.
You're honestly better off buying a separate gun for CC than the one you use for home defense (get something you can mount a tactical light to for that) and recreational shooting (CCW's are typically not too fun to shoot).
Physics major here.
I've been learning everything possible about propeller planes lately.
Ducted fans, axial fans, supersonic tipped fans, subsonic compression ratios, blade element theory, etc.
I have found my passion, and I want to share knowledge with you guys and talk about prop fighters. My goal one day is to make these things relevant again with a new engine patent. Maybe not for fighting modern jets, but at least for viable ground support.
Do you guys like them? Any ex-military guys here ever flown a Super Tucano?
Engineering technologist, here.
There are a lot of recent advances in manufacturing that could allow for much more efficient geometries, but I don't believe propeller planes will have much use on the modern battlefield minus perhaps drones.
I believe you'd need to have assisted power since compression has a limit, that or use a regulated closed system but that would be extremely expensive.
No, I posted the FR because it is better for both land and sea operations, has a better climb rate, better roll rate, better turn rate, better everything desu and is more interesting in design. Contra-rotating props are inherently what you want for stability to recover from slipstream dampening
/k/ what's your opinion on the coast guards tactical law enforcement division. I have a command recommendation to get stationed at a taclet and I'd have to re-enlist. Thinking about joining the army or possibly navy if I don't re-enlist
Now I know you have had this topic ran into the ground. Is it a futile effort to even create body armor that can withstand the bullet yet still kill the person from the sheer force. How would you go about solving the problem to spread out the kinetic energy as much as you can?
Matt from DemolitionRanch has a nice series of videos showing what a .50 BMG FMJ does to SEVERAL plates of armor
in short, it's not feasible without something to augment the wearer's strength, because they'd be carrying around 50lbs of armor at a minimum
Is a Smith and Wesson M&P for 538 a good deal?
