Pic unrelated I Found these randomly in a deterencedispensed.com comments section. a /pol/ user has been posting files to a glock reciever too. Don't know how safe the links are. http://www.mediafire.com/file/2742dv81ukb0i8h/FOSSCAD_MEGA_PACK_v4.8_%2528Ishikaw https://ctrlpew.com/fgc9-file-drop-2/ After what I've seen every now and then in /pol/, I'm surprised that there has been little to no discussion on 3D printed firearms. Things about 3D-printed Firearms in general >Most are designed and tested extensively by gunsmiths and firearms enthusiasts alike. >This is most accessible to people who own a 3D printer for printing in general. >The main appeal to doing this is being able to make your own firearms without needing to do anything "official", and the hobbyist-engineer aspects of it. >Them being "ghost guns" is completely a load of media fearmongering. Caveats to 3D-Printing Firearms >The requirements to build one and keep it structurally sound are quite strict, readmes and instructions are important. some recievers you'll need to print them on an angle, with support material to match. >most jewtube vids on 3D-printed funs say that the cost to build one isn't much different than buying parts and assembling a firearm on your own. I'm not sure if that's because of parts cost, or if most 3d-printing firearms Youtubers count the printer as part of the cost of building the weapon itself.

>>13093 You are so dumb it's tiresome. 100% infill does not change how layers bond. If your layer 50 doesn't bond as well to layer 51 as it should because layers 10-20 have cooled and slightly warped it's not going to matter if it's 100% infill or not. If anything that would be worse because you're spending more time printing which means more warping over time. >If you buy all these other parts you can make a gun. And you can attach a barrel to a stick and hit it with a hammer to make a shotgun. You're mot 3D printing the gun. You're 3D printing a replacement stock. When you can print all the parts and make it fire more than once you have something. Until then you're fucking around for novelty. Just stop talking about youtube memes and get a clue kid.

What's the current apex of 3d printed handgun design? Liberator is 8 years old, and the Washbear is also half a decade old already. I know there has been various long guns made

Also, has there been any development into 3d printed "antique firearms"? Gangster made guns have existed for a while (pic related) but metallic cartridges have always been the hardest thing to obtain or make. and it seems to me that black powder (all components of which are sold freely as mundane cooking/agriculture supplies) +armstrong is far easier to accomplish than getting real ammo. It's also not legally a firearm and a big fuck you to the laws.

>>10709 This video is a good overview of what a spadroon is, and why it was loathed in it's last gasp of service. https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=9tgyvUnuhro I think in another video he suggested that after the Napoleonic wars aspects of the classic saber and spadroon were merged as an "infantry saber" was developed, but I don't know which video that would be.
>>10785 Ah, unfortunately I don't know much about the Napoleonic period, but if the horse tactics were predominantly to ride by while a formation wasn't looking and hit n' run then heavy cutting swords are ideal as thrusts are harder to retrieve at higher galloping speeds. That being said individual combat will have take place differently from group tactics and sabers were probably easier to teach parry and reposte/cut therefore easier to standardize.
>>7664 It depends on the type of blow. Predominantly one will be stabbing, and if it aids the motion, like most straight stabs with knives and swords where you don't turn your torso at all for any core power, you will tend to turn your hand, so there will be a change. I've never really dicked around with polearms, but from the look of them you probably would not rotate most of them and their blades would be vertical most of the time, especially on the ones that do not have good symmetry (i.e. halberds). >>7706 Rifles with bayonets should always be used in melee from the ready position where the buttstock is basically touching your hip or near it and the muzzle is slightly high (inverse of low ready). It is also called the ready carry in US manuals that are a bit older like the Guidebook for Marines in many editions. You always keep the blade vertical when thrusting simply because most guns are awkward to be held at all for melee and it is the least awkward way. The more advanced and experimental the gun features become (carbine/short anything/bullpup), the worse and worse it is with a bayonet, as a general rule. >>8865 Wide shapes are great for combat knives because they don't break off in bones as easily.

I've heard Pflug/Plow stance is defensive and poorly suited for offense because you can't make a proper attack from neutral. Is this true? Is it accurate to characterize wrathguard as lacking in defense besides its long reach? Any general pro/cons of other stances?
>>13160 While i don't think it is a good idea to conceptualize any guard as defensive or offensive people who hold their weapon low tend to raise it up to protect their head. Defense and offense is a matter of timing between who initiates the first attack and the reaction to it which is your attack/parry dichotomy. Guards are a comportment of the body that is necessary before any action, which may be offensive or defensive according to the tempo and more importantly do you have the presence of mind to, when it happens that you both attack at the same time, to strike in between the beats in their tempo to disrupting them and steal the initiative. You can do that from any guard and you don't need to have experience with a ridiculous amount of guards to do it consistently.

The Club Penguin Fanon Wiki's military autism Strelok 02/13/2021 (Sat) 03:19:25 No.13172 [Reply]
How the fuck is this /k/? I'll get to that. It's time to get something off my chest and I don't know where else to post this. As a kid, I was part of something called the Club Penguin Fanon Wiki. It started off as a bunch of kids writing about their OCs, as you'd expect, but that quickly grew boring, so the kids began making their own penguin countries? And what happens when that gets boring? What happens when the users don't get along? Simple: your imaginary penguin countries go to war. There are several hundred articles about Club Penguin wars, Club Penguin soldiers, Club Penguin weapons, and so on. Some went into incredibly autistic detail about this stuff, a bunch included photos of real life military equipment or penguins photoshopped with guns. Some people got into retelling real life conflicts with their made-up countries: I particularly remember checking the website several years ago for a laugh and finding some turboautist had retold the Yugoslavian Wars at great length. Yes, there was a penguin Adolf Hitler. Someone made up the High Penguins as a parody of Tolkien's elves, but fucked them up so badly everyone thought they were supposed to be Jews, so they made up a penguin Hitler named Whoot Smackler Whoot (a descendent of Penghis Khan) to genocide them. In-universe he survived WW2 and lived to a ripe old age in a retirement home, where he was beloved by all. This isn't even getting into stuff like deletion nukes, the site's editors existing in-universe as a sort of constantly bickering pantheon, or just how little separation there was between user interactions and the setting itself. The entire thing was batshit and I still can't believe it existed or that I was a part of this. Looking back, the autism put into this stuff was really impressive for something made by a bunch of kids and I figured you guys might get a kick out of it.

I've included some caps of some less impressive stuf here too. The older war stories are much less violent but at some point the userbase just stopped giving a shit. It seems there's only so much you can do with cutesy Club Penguin stories until the kids get bored and turn the setting into a batshit wargame RP. Haven't really gotten much into stuff like countries, penguin statesmen, or armaments yet either. From what little I've seen, most of the weapons pages date back to the days when they had to be technically nonlethal. This still allowed countries to own things like chemical weapons, superweapons which indirectly killed everyone through global warming, and the aforementioned deletion missiles which wiped their targets from existence without technically killing them.

>>12961 the amount of Xenon-129 in the surface soil and atmosphere of Mars says you're super wrong about that, Strelok
>>12969 Someone tested nukes, possibly gigaton range, on mars. Why do you think we made the "moon" program? What do you think the saturn V was originally intended to carry? Everybody acknowledges that the atlas, minotaur, R-7, etc were initially nuclear weapon launch vehicles so there's not a big leap of the imagination there. I'm not even joking, I think we probably, at least just designed, the Saturn series as ICBMs, and probably went a lot further.
>>12972 that could be more plausible than intelligent life on mars but there's an awful lot of that xenon 129, I'm not sure that amount could be created by just a couple nukes and I'm not sure the USA and USSR were capable of launching that many nukes to mars. Wouldn't they just nuke the far side of the moon or something
>>12974 You know, it would contribute to explaining why mars used to have oceans and a stronger magnetic field.
>>12961 It was that bad of a joke. Keep that shit out of the webring.

>>10864 almost no wars have been fought this way. War is mostly a waste of time and accomplishes nothing because it's just a bunch of expendable males fighting each other until they're all dead while their wives are cheating on them back home. If a war was going to accomplish anything worthwhile it would maximize civilian and female casualties.

Hey /k/, just getting around to the active boards who weren't part of ICUP 6 to officially announce the GCUP. The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivities. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!
Just checking in, did you guys want to compete in a friendly during the GCUP tournament? It'll be a single game played under a meme ruleset just for fun. It's to give you guys something to watch/cheer for even though we're not at the official ICUP yet.

Gun purchases. Panic buying new fags. And other shit. Strelok 07/28/2020 (Tue) 23:30:07 No.4526 [Reply] [Last]
Alright faggots. 2020 so far has been fun and it created a ton of new fags for the gun community. Now this board is likely not the first, second, or third place a new fag will come for gun advice. So this is not that thread. So have any of you: Bought a gun sometime this year? Bought a piece of gear like an optic or maybe even armor? Helped someone buy a gun? Teach someone how to not anhero? Or did you laugh and call someone a faggot for not buying earlier? Did a family member or friend or coworker become a total retard the second they got their first gun? either turning into an internet tough guy or saying I'm a 2A person now """"""BUT"""""" Were you planning to buy something but just said fuck it due to the lines and/or couldn't because of stripped bare shelves? Do any of you happen to work in a gun store and did you get fun phone calls from people in shitholes asking to buy a fun and have it delivered to their doors? Do you live and work in a shithole and have the fun of explaining the hoops they have to jump through? Did you explain the hoops and obstacles with a shit eating grin on your face? I've been trying to get two friends to get a gun for a while now and neither have made the effort to even get a wood stick for defense even though one said he wanted a fun for possible shtf reasons way before gook aids was a thing. Some people can't get motivated by seeing hordes of retards talk about spreading the fun I guess. I've helped two boomer age pencil pushers by taking them to the range and letting them fire an okay amount I think of self defense oriented guns (AR, shotguns, DA\SA and striker fired handguns, a revolver also) and got paid for it too. They had a bit of a reaction upon seeing the AR A3/A4 20 inch style but after handling the shotguns and handguns they warmed up real quick to it. Lines had been forming outside of gun shops when this all kicked off, sometimes wrapping around the block while the rain was pouring. I figured I would wait for the panic buying to calm down and thought I'd be safe since the gun I've been wanting was either a Ruger sp101 or a Smith and Wesson J-frame thinking plastic blasters and shotguns would be the only things that would be hard to restock. But then a wonderful culture spreader got subtracted from the diversity interaction statistics, and for now I won't be able to larp as a 30s detective or CC in a plastic dog shit bag in hand while blasting a home made pharmaceuticals enthusiast if it ever comes to it.

What's a good concealed carry gun? I'm not particular about what caliber. I'm considering between getting a Makarov or buying the parts for my P320 to make it compact.
>>12543 >I'm not particular about what caliber What about round count? I use a P64 because that's the only realistically concealable handgun I have and it fit pretty nicely in my pants pockets before I got myself a holster for it. It shoots 9x18 mak rounds but it only holds 6 in the magazine, and the trigger pull when the hammer isn't cocked is absurdly heavy. Like surprisingly heavy. There's way better options obviously but in my area everything at stores seems to have been bought up and everything at gun shows is absolutely unreal in terms of pricing anymore. As far as I know P64s are still less than $350 despite this, at least the one I saw at a recent show was under that. Also from what I can tell 9x18 is relatively cheap compared to most other rounds at the moment too so there's that.
>>12543 presumably you have trigger time on your SIG, plus ammo and mags. I'd go with that. during the panic I've been focused on fleshing out what I already own rather than buying new platforms. all my airsoft guns now have a light, optic, and sling/holster.
if you guys are buying shit for SHTF don't forget a fire extinguisher

Do you carry when you swim? What precautions do you take to prevent your weapon and ammunition from getting corroded? Do you use a special type of weapon and/or ammunition that is more water resistant? If you don't carry when you swim, how does it feel to be cucked and defenseless when you're swimming?
