What are /k/'s thoughts on hickok45?
Daily reminder that PMAGs are prone to failure when loading on a closed bolt and that Magpul claims it's a feature.
What went wrong?
Seriously why is the stryker such a failure?
implying the M2/M3 bradley adn the M113 werent failures as well.
all IFV or APCs are inherently flawed.
Is West Point worth it?
Go to a REAL college. Drink away your weekends and fuck qt from class. Smoke bowls, sleep in sometimes.
THEN take your worthwhile degree and experiences and go to OCS or enlist if you actually want to do stuff.
Academy is for lifers who want to spend their careers sucking dick and kissing ass to end their career at WESTCOM VICEGEOPLAT SECRETARY having never set foot in the field for the last 12 years.
Anyone tried gunpowder mixed with cocaine(AKA "brown-brown)?
I'm considering breaking up a few shotgun shells this weekend to try it out, but I'm scared of side effects (like turning into a chimp and fighting a gorilla war) or lead poisoning. Apparently the nitroglycerin in the gunpowder acts as a vasodilator and gets you extra fun.
Why do people keep saying that the AMRAAM is a bad missile? Not necessarily on this site, but on other sites, people on other sites refer to the AIM-120 as though it were a joke that never hits the target. They say it has low pk. Is this true? Is America's air force built on a house of cards?
>They say it has low pk
Well it has the highest PK of any ARH BVR missile, so...
Missiles still kinda sucked even in the 80s, like the sparrow, but even in the 90s they got a lot better. I think the AIM-7 from the 90s had a PK of like 20 to 30%.
The AMRAAM is much, much better than that.
The newest models have enough delta V to hit bomber type targets out to about 100nm head on. This would give them a no escape zone of something like 10 to 30 nm. Couple that...

Why the fuck is it shaped like this?
Just to look cool or what?
I feel like it looks kind of try hard
Like the Camaro of military bombers
I ain't no avionics engineer, but I'd assume they got some smart people together and made something with maximum stealth capabilities and maximum bombing capabilities the best/most efficient way they could.
It's Northrop-Grumman. Flying wedges are their trademark.
I'm just confused by the fact that it looks just like a damn B-2. Now, I haven't read up much on the LRS-B requirements, but what the fuck is this going to do different than a B-2? Is it supposed to be bigger? I don't understand why you don't just put an emphasis on PGMs mounted on strike aircraft instead of bigger bombtrucks that will (most likely) get shot down or intercepted before they have the chance to reach target. I...

You'll notice a falcon and a stealth bomber have similar profiles.
planes without a tail or vertical aileron have been considered unstable in flight until computers got fast enough to do the micro-corrections necessary to keep it stable and in-control.
Honey bees are mathematically unable to take flight, but they do every day. They just need really quick, and really small corrections to fly well.
which one of you faggots was this?
>trying to CC a lunchbox under a tight shirt
I'm still convinced that these guys are from /k/ too
Can you freely discharge a firearm in your own home? Like if I had some bags of fucking dirt and didn't feel like driving to the range, could I just set up a target in my living room and open fire? It's my place, after all. What's the worst that could happen?
>Worst that could happen
Your bubba backstop isn't sufficient or you miss and a round goes through wall into neighbors house and kills someone.
Also, if you're in city limits and not in the county I'm sure there's about a dozen permits you're gonna need to set up a legal indoor firing range.
You typically cannot discharge a firearm within city limits in most areas.
Exceptions would be designated gun ranges, or in legal self-defense situations.
If your home is outside of city limits, go nuts.
Someone legit thought this could protect you from bullets
If you're so concerned about school shootings promise every parent a small portable bulletproof vest for the children occupying the classroom
Could a pair of daggers ever beat a sword? Seems like it would never happen given a sword's reach and weight.
Every day until it's cancelled.
/k/ do you conceal carry at work? Is it allowed? Do you ignore the rules?
Do you think that the most recent shooting will cause both panic buying and a substantial push for legislation?
Do you have a separate conceal carry for work? Maybe a smaller handgun?
>Do you ignore the rules?
>Do you think that the most recent shooting will cause both panic buying and a substantial push for legislation?
If you buy in bulk, you literally do not have to worry about stupid shit like panic buying and actually enjoy shooting as a hobby. And no, it won't do shit. No need to get riled up every single time some sperg shoots someone.
If its illegal to carry in your workplace no, if its company policy to disarm employees onsite thats up to you, if it's "suggested" that you dont conceal then fuck 'em and do it. My problem is if you don't have armed security staff why also ban concealment for employees. Wish more employers would put this infor,ation in the fine print of job applications
