NRA is going down Strelok 08/06/2020 (Thu) 16:55:42 No.4759 [Reply]
New York is finally going after the NRA for its blatant, public, mismanagement. Everything that happens to them is entirely their own fault since they could have moved the charter to virtually any other state years ago. http://archive.vn/wip/WcqpA http://archive.vn/wip/mgXGV Can't wait for all the money they're embezzling to start flowing to real 2A groups.

Latest piece of news I remember is that they tried to flee to Texas, but it failed and now they are stuck in Jew York.
>>4845 >>4860 If you've played the current version of Terraria then you know exactly what being sodomized by a garden gnome is like. >>15765 So what's the next step for them? And do you think the NRA going down will lead people to flocking to a less shit 2A organization?
>>15837 They'll probably just re-incorporate after a time. They need to get rid of Wayne, for sure. That mother fucker is basically responsible for their bankruptcy, and why people don't take the NRA seriously. There will likely be a power vacuum in the gun-rights world for a while. I expect other orgs to aggressive seek disenfranchised NRA members, if they're not doing so already. While this can be viewed as a net positive, let's not forget that for all the NRA's worthless bluster, the NRA-ILA and NRA Civil Rights Defense are quietly filing lawsuits and peddling influence.
>>15837 Not only have they failed to flee but the NRA also had it's bankruptcy case dismissed by a federal judge because LaPierre's reckless spending and misuse of charitable assets
>>15842 meant for >>15765 Ihate when this happens

QTDDTOT-Axe Repair Edition Strelok 10/08/2020 (Thu) 05:07:21 No.7036 [Reply] [Last]
Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread I'll start. I decided recently to fix up this old axe I found a few years ago. I got some rust converter to do the job but then after I took a closer look I realized that it has a big crack all the way through on the back of the eye. How do I fix this shit? Can I just heat it up and weld it back together blacksmith style?

QC issues with AR type stuff tend to show up very early or even with visual inspection, if you've got a couple hundred rounds down the tube without any hiccups you shouldn't run into any future problems are there restrictions on what you can import from america? there are way better AR-10 manufacturers over here at various price points, most prominently for people wanting "mid tier" being Aero Precision
What is the diffrence bettween type 81 an type 56?
>>8164 Barrels at the time were typically wire or strips of metal hammer forged together by hand around a mandrel. The mandrel would have the rifling on it. Alternatively there were hand operated machines which could be used to slowly cut the rifling into a finished barrel.

I said come out, don't stay indoors! /k/ is an weapons, combat and Outdoorsmanship board, i don't see any outdoors discussion. Let's talk about what's going on outside, what you're up to (hobbywise), and what activities you enjoy, that you can recommend to Streloks, be it because it builds body and character, or because it's plain fun. Pic related. I started walking barefoot this year, and i enjoy it so far, i've even managed to grow quite a thick layer of callous skin to protect my feet.

>>15505 >>15511 Yes, it's an unfortunate that was the outcome of that thread. I tried to get a conversation started about camping and food by talking about MREs but the conversation went nowhere. It's quite sad really because I'd love to talk about strelok's homemade MREs or that time he went camping and got a skinwaker girlfriend but I guess he just doesn't have anything to add. That's okay, I'd rather get no posts than poor quality posts that mean nothing. >>15511
>>15505 I am going to the beach this weekend, I am sort of forced to go but I'll see I could run, if not I will swim, last time I went there was barely anyone in the nice cool water (the purple flag wasn't up so it was safe) but the beach was overcrowded so running was no go. I don't understand why tanning is so popular, such a boring activity. I'll see if I could go fishing, the pier is right there but don't know they want to because I suppose with someone before they leave back to their home state.
>>15533 that sounds good. running at the beach is pretty good for the feet, sands off excessive callouses and keeps them healthy. Swimming is good excercise for building and keeping muscles. Tanning isn't for everyone, because it's basically just sleeping in the sun, i do that all the time in my backyard :P >>15526 >>15511 that's sad.. I really didn't notice that one, i was sure i had looked thoroughly. Maybe we should continue posting in the old thread? >>15511

>>15055 Wouldn't the police be better evolved to the state level? Nationalizing all police would be a terrible power grab (not to mention horrendously inefficient, not that making police effective would be the objective), but organizing police forces at the purely local level has also lead to some pretty nasty corruption issues, problems with predatory fines as revenue raising tactics, and so on. It seems that Local Area Commands (or whatever the burger equivalent is) could be subordinated to state-level organization (and Internal Affairs) without losing their local beat knowledge, as in other Anglo nations. That said, given everything else we've seen and the other cancerous patterns that US cops at all levels have developed, I wouldn't be surprised if all the mythical "friendly local cops" have long been chased out of the forces in preparation for further suppression of "undesirable" parts of the US population.
>>15056 >Nationalizing all police would be a terrible power grab That's the point. What >>15055 doesn't understand, or want to accept is that anything which exposes law enforcement villainy is ultimately good. This is /k/ for god's sake. Any law enforcer who infringes on natural rights, including the rights to keep and bear arms, or speak an opinion deserves to be treated like the latest scapegoat. Protip: They all infringe on natural rights.

Squad/unit weapons and tactics in SHTF/WROL/B-word Strelok 03/16/2021 (Tue) 20:31:56 No.14089 [Reply]
This is mostly a fun and hypothetical discussion, not a super serious one. But what weapons and tactics do you think would be very effect in a SHTF situation, but would be unconventional or ineffective in modern warfare. I have two, 1) Trebuchets and Longbows I think it's safe to assume there'd be very limited access to modern indirect fire weapons like mortars, cannons, etc and I skeptical that homemade versions would be anymore effective than more primitive artillery to include ballistas although I don't think castle type sieges would be likely I think small trebuchets, like one's small enough to fit and operate in a truck bed, along with bow, could be used for indirect fire against encampments and defense positions from behind cover that would protect you from firearms. Not to mention you could obviously use radios or other methods for observation and fire correction side question, what kind of a fire control system could you use for archers firing without line of site? Not to mention you could incorporate improvised explosives with the trebuchet. Lastly, and this mostly applies to archery. But I think they could be absolutely killer for night attacks and ambushes in combination with guns. The archers open up on the enemy, mostly likely just wounding some, and likely forcing the enemy to use lights to try to find the archers, since bows don't have muzzle flash. Once they turn their lights on, not only are they clearly giving away their position (if it's a weapon mounted flash light or something) but also as I'm sure you're aware. If you're in a brightly lit area looking into a dark area beyond, you can't see fucking shit, vice versa, if you're in a dark area looking into a brightly lit area, you can see it plain as day. So if you can force the enemy to turn on bright lighting, your gunners will have a massive advantage over their gunners. 2) Shotguns being used like LMG Obviously I'm not referring to firerate, however I am referring to suppressive fire capabilities (at <100 yards). I don't think you'd want to use some kind of semi-auto rifle for this role in SHTF, just due to ammo conservation, those rounds are better used elsewhere. However I think a shotgun firing buckshot Maybe some birdshot thrown in as filler one round every 3-5 seconds could work very well for suppressing fire since with buckshot it'd have a pretty high chance of substantially wounding someone, even at decent ranges. I think a .22lr with large magazines could be used similarly, but I don't think would have the same psychological effect nor have the same likelyhood of causing a wound like buckshot would. Anyway, what are y'alls thoughts on the subject?

Just wanted to add this (polite sage as well)
Not being a dick but have you read the book one of the streloks is writing? >>2682
>>14130 No, but I've seen it, I'll check it out.
>>14089 SHTF? I would prepare before that. Anyone i plan to include in my team would need to be familiar with crossbows and Bows, also slings if possible. Not just shooting and hitting, but also effectively hunting with them and shooting fast with them. ranged weapons that work on primitive projectiles (arrows/bolts for bows and crossbows, rocks for slings) are ideal for SHTF in my Area, since it would most like look like this: >people all get locked in Megacities. >Vaccination and registration mandatory for living in the MCs >Anyone that doesn't want that can get fucked, no participation in social life, basically an outcast and free meat. >Have to survive on your own, hide not only from the elements, but also from government, that doesn't want people like you running around inspiring others. And since here you need loicenses and whatnot to buy firearms, and any ammo supply will dry up without resupply from the Cities (Who knows, maybe civilian hunting will be outlawed completely), it will be down to slinging rocks and arrows. A person Knowing how to use them effectively will be worth his weight in gold. WEAPONS First of all: Stay ranged, or stay in massive groups. Second: crossbows and slings are fucking scary. Crossbows are more complex, but anyone can use them with a little training, and they're incredibly effective against anyone without full combat gear. Slings are easy to learn, but hard to master, but if you manage to actually get the hang of it, and aim and sling rocks with high precision and power, you can kill grown men with metal armor with that shit, look it up, it's terrifying. Third: If you are up against mostly melee fighters, and you have more than just a handful men, go for spears. They are cheap and easy to produce and replace, require practically no maintenance, and they're very effective at holding your ground and fucking up everyone who's bold enough to get to close.

I have a (hypothetical) scenario for you /k/ Strelok 03/27/2021 (Sat) 08:30:45 No.14377 [Reply]
Post the hypothetical WW3 or collapse of the world as we know it, the world has been thrown into neverending anarchy and majority of land inhabbitable. But a "few" nat-socs/fascists have created a time machine to stop this from happening. They have many equipment from all over the world, people from all over the white and asian world. But they aren't as much diffrent in idealogy And also have some plans for nuclear weapons. Let's say their manpower is around 1 million. They of course want to help the Third reich to win the second WW2. Where and when, should they go? How would it work out for them? Pic semi-unrelated

>>14476 >Because a group of retards in larp surplus bumbling about top level military interna would likely go through as a band of deranged and dangerous gipsies? I never said that it takes right after the 3rd world war. It can 50 or even 100 years after that. While yeah after 100 years majority of modern weapons will be broken, but this is hypothetical scenario.
>>14476 >a group of retards in larp surplus bumbling about top level military interna Streloks volunteering for time travel wouldn't be that dumb, r-right?
>>14377 >help the Third reich The only practical way for the axis to win the second world war that's not through fiat or deus ex machina is not to start it in the first place, and convincing them to do this would be a hell of a task. Nuclear weapons plans are nothing if you haven't the fissile material to use in them, and getting that is the hardest part of building them. Bonus points though, if your operatives get them not only to not start the war, but convince the rest of the allies that Stalin is the bigger threat. Hell, Churchill hated Stalin far more than he disliked Hitler. So, everyone goes to war against gommunism, and then they'd probably end up with their lebensraum anyhow after Europe got chewed up by the war against the Soviets. Then you could just settle in and watch the slow and eventual progress toward the current year, which would probably end up more-or-less the same but with a different-ish Europe. All roads lead to clown world.
>>14537 No they don´t and building centrifuges isn´t that hard if that´s what you mean. If not I´m telling you now that all of the soviet nuclear weapons uranium came from germany and the czechs. Winning the war is also quiet easy as you just have to convince the german to give a fuck about molotov-ribbentrop = keep all of poland plus secure the baltics before the soviets do provoke them to attack, bled them out in the logistical no mans land that is eastern europe and then just win with the persian gulf oil you secured beforehand to keep the waiting bearable. Bonus: you will also receive american lend lease and the brits will be forced to peace out under your conditions.

"Safe" Landmines Strelok 02/14/2021 (Sun) 09:30:17 No.13226 [Reply]
As we all know, landmines are a clusterfuck. Any retard with a garden trowel can plant one then forget about it a month later, yet the nasty little cunt will still gib his grandson 4 decades later. Problem is that they are so effective so armies do send every retard with a garden trowel to booby trap fields and now we have nightmares like Cambodia where the locals look like Gammatelier's wet dream. So my question is this: Why don't we have "perishable" landmines? Some sort of killswitch that either detonates or deactivates the charge after a set amount of time. Let's say 5 years. The switch could be based on an internal timer such as a digital clock, a radioisotope, a slow chemical reaction or even a physical process like a wind-up clock. Alternatively, it could be based on corrosion, such as by having an exposed rod of iron or a length of rope that will eventually rust/rot through and disarm the bomb. The latter system, of course, would be much less reliable and would not work in dry environments but it would be much easier to produce.

>>14422 In that case, is it already being used by anyone? And is it the kind of thing that you just shouldn't inhale if you don't want to die a few years sooner, or is it bad enough to be considered a nerve gas? Can it get into the water supply?
>>14695 It looks like certain varieties of the Hellfire missile do use it, but it's not used in infantry weapons. http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=7769 >SMAW-NE; PBXIH-135 (HMX, Al) >Composition PBXIH-135(or PBXN-113) >• 45% HMX https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMX >• 20% Binder Material(hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene binder) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxyl-terminated_polybutadiene >• 35% Aluminum I have no idea if you could use a solid block of this stuff as a hand grenade.
>>14696 Looks like hmx is just next step rdx, slightly more powerful, same touch and friction-sensitivity. Mix with tnt to get a powerful cast explosive. >Hand grenade Hand grenades are for people who don't value their life. I prefer shelling my enemy with a mortar from a mile away
>>14665 It may seem like a stroke post but it's a real thing. Do a search for "Progressive Depth Rifling". >>14696 Not the same thing. >Infrared Spectra of Aluminum Fluorocarbon Polymer Compositions to Thermal Signature of Jet Engine And that's just one formulation. Mix some Tungsten in there and you've got a different beast. Change the ratio of Aluminium to PTFE and you've got another. Protip: It's used in WP smoke substitutes. And what do you know: >https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016703720305962 >Most of the World’s large tungsten deposits are genetically related to fluorine-rich granitic magmas, their ores contain fluorine minerals, such as fluorite and topaz, and their host rocks have commonly undergone fluorine metasomatism to form greisens.
>>14702 Huh, why does it seem that all the good things are buried beneath mediocre shit? I really want sniper rifles with progressive rifling now >>13230 good idea, but i think the solenoid should rather be a solenoid valve, that keeps a hole in the casing closed. After a certain time period has passed, or if the battery runs out of juice, the valve will open, and moisture can get into the mine, rendering the explosive effectively inert. just an idea.
