QTDDTOT-Axe Repair Edition Strelok 10/08/2020 (Thu) 05:07:21 No.7036
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?
>>7036 Looks like you need to throw it in a fire to burn the wood out, then arc-weld the crack as deep as you can and hope that it's enough. You'll know if you whack something with the back and it "rings" a nice clean tone, if it sounds dull, just get a new one unless you're a proper smith, you won't be able to fix it properly.
>>7040 >burn the wood out I can get the remnants of the haft out without problems so that doesn't worry me. >arc-weld I don't have an arc welder nor access to an arc welder nor do I have any experience doing that. I do have a little bit of smithing experience as limited as that may be. I don't have a forge or an anvil but I think I could nigger rig up a forge with firebrick and a blower pretty easy or buy a hobby forge without too much expense. What I'm most concerned about is what do I need to do about cleaning the crack. It mostly just has a rust patina rather than serious rust. Do I need to rasp it out to get real clean surfaces or will a good thorough washing plus rust converter transform it into a form of oxide that wont overly interfere with a weld? I'd rather not have to physically remove anymore material than necessary.

>>7052 If you don't mind it being in a fannypack form and without the suspenders, the hipmonkey from mystery ranch is a pretty solid sell. Not too different in capacity either I think and comes in less tacticool colours like purple or jade if you're into that you fashion icon

>>7132 >Walker Razors >Howard Leight Impact Sports >3M Peltors They're all about $50 or less; more expensive models from these companies just add a bunch of features like bluetooth, stereo sound, AM/FM radios, sound amplification etc, which imo aren't really worth it, since it's extra shit that can break. Unless you're buying expensive earpro there's so little difference among the brands apart from design - they all offer about 22~24 db noise reduction, auto-shutoff (except for the walkers) after several hours. Like you're probably better off reading amazon reviews to compare features than getting info off here. But get gel cups, they're comfier and it makes summer shooting much better.

>>7042 Try an acid to remove rust within the crack. You may have to punch holes sideways across the rear and pin the two sides together somehow with a rivet to ensure it holds if you can't access a welder. Good luck anon, let us know how it goes.

>>7197 It might be a case of the military-industrial complex simply not being interested in artillery, and so he was nothing but a plaything of CIAniggers. Then he went rogue, started to improve the SCUD missiles for the Iraqis, and jews came to the conclusion that it's easier to kill him than to make their golems hire him to make big fucking cannons for Pentagon. Or at least that seems to be the story from what I can gather.

Anyone got a source for firearms schematics?
>>7197 >>7203 Bull WAS working with the US. The Navy lamented his death because he was still developing their super-gun, the Army was despondent because he was still assisting their proto-SLRC project - which they are JUST managing to recover from his loss. The CIA even went nuts trying to find out who killed him, because - according to recently declassified documents - at the time of his death, Bull was working with the CIA to create a spy (satellite) cannon. Then they found out that the Israelis killed him, and that was in fact the closest the post-WW2 US ever came to cutting ties with the tribe. If only.

>>7326 Not sure which ones in particular Bull was working on, but the US Navy at various points had designs for 20in, 24in, 32in, and 36in 'super-heavy' cannon. A majority (but not all) of the 32/36in 'guns' were actually armored missile launchers, but that still leaves a few conventional guns for each.

Funnily, enough there are certain others with that same mindset. So far gearwise, I have a Mayflower P/C with two LV III plates, a PASGT helmet from 1996, a few MREs, my STAG-10 and VZ-58, one crate of surp 7.62x39, and several Winchester boxes of 7.62 NATO FMJ. And to top it off, also my auto-nugget and several boxes of nugget food, a tula sks, and nugget.
Is op atill around? You can totally fix that with some pretty basic blacksmithing. Just heat it back up and beat it together over your anvils horn. Welding it over then grinding it flat to be safe would be a good idea. Be careful not to damage the eye. No need for the rust converter just quench it in oil to blue it after forging. Anyways, for my question. Does anyone here hunt pigeons? A family friend has a pigeon problem at his farm and wants me to kill them for him. Is a 4.5mm air rifle good enough?

>>8002 Get malice clips to convert molle shit to mount on belts a bit better. Alice on molle usually pulls and pinches the material a lot more causing more stress on the pals ladders that could cause tearing. Usually ~$8 for a pack of 4 >5.11 bungee/Velcro flap mags come in both double and single variety usually $20 to $30. Double version have mags to each others sides flat style >Gun show kydex/safariland/lag tactical pouches are usually $20 to $30 something for single pouches Assuming it isn't some garage operation where the owner tells you he "knows what he's got" even though it's easily cracked kydex supplied from amazon instead of getting bulk package deals from actual suppliers. Kydex style pouches are generally more designed for competition or range use and usually more expensive in general while taking up an extra inch of belt space even for single mag styles due to tension screws but have faster easier use. >surplus USGI/British osprey mag pouches off ebay Old school USGI pouches have three mags per pouch but no retention for individual mags so close them up. Alice clips usually fit tightly on regular belts pretty well. USGI molle are usually designed as a one piece triple mag shingle for the front of the armor or if its the single pouch styles they're beat to fuck usually with dead Velcro. British style are a combination of old school USGI and molle with really nice rapid pull tab closures. Usually only sold in large batches of a complete set, other smaller sellers usually only have like 2 or 3 >tactical tailor fight light mag pouches ~$30 for a double/triple pouch, $20 or so for a single Very similar to the 5.11 pouches with bungee retention but some double versions have mags that stack on each other instead of laying side to side. Comes with malice clips standard >eagle industries around $30 to $50 similar styles to tactical tailor but a bit more pricey and like HSGI they also use a plastic insert to keep the pouches shape but unlike HSGI they aren't total kikes and asking ~$40 for a single mag pouch, they'll give you a double pouch for $45 instead >condor/ar500/fox tactical/whatever Some are actually pretty good but generally avoid Velcro closures and designs with lots of stitching like quad stack mag pouches

>>8002 Ebay is your friend, type in "magazine pouch" and look around. Just don't buy tacticool chinkshit, and you should be fine.
>>8020 How can you tell what's Chinese or not.
Am I able to nigger-rig a Chinese spike onto a Romanian AK, and if so how much work is involved. I'm thinking about an autistic Khyber abomination type ak with a triangle side folder, cheese grater handguard, and chinese spike. The side folder is the easy part. What would I need to do to get a spike on there? Will it be simply changing out the lower handguard, gas block, and FSB, or do I need a different barrel to boot? Quick concept edit to show what I am going for.
>>8098 I think the chinese AK bayonets all fit on an AK EXCEPT the type 81 bayonet, which is for commercial shit, not angry chinaman in vietnam shit. QBZ 95 bayonet is a shitty M9 clone. The commercial chink ones are bad so avoid those as well the weird olive green chink AKM bayonet. Type 56 might not fit since its a special spiked design, theres a clamp on, pinned on, and quick detach version.
>>8098 >Will it be simply changing out the lower handguard, gas block, and FSB, or do I need a different barrel to boot? That I don't know, but can't you take a look at this if you have access to all those parts? Although it sounds like you'd be better off adding the new stock and rails to a Type 59.
I have a MAB P-15 and trying to disassemble it. I can easily take out the slide stop pin but I can't pull off the slide. There's almost no info online about folks having issues with these so I got no idea where to start troubleshooting when it isn't a browning tilting barrel.

Is there such thing as night hunting on a budget? Might be an odd question, but I'm having some trouble with rats in the vegetable garden. I should try different trap placement at the very least.

So I noticed that 16th century Guns have counter weights to them. How would that work on Modern Guns?

>>8332 Sorry, I figured that. I meant one specifically rounded like pic related.
>>8327 Part of the reason for the counterweight was to make it a good club after the shot is expended. That's completely and utterly unneeded after metal cartridges came around.
>>8327 Are those counterweights? I always wondered if they were suppose to be a back up bludgeoning weapon.

>>8327 >>8344 The grip angle of those old pistols are a lot more extreme that even the Luger or those target pistols have. Not to mention that the Luger has the magazine inside the grip, and that should give it enough weight to work as a counter-weight. Target pistols usually just have a solid wooden grip, so they do need some extra weight.
>>8348 Didn't want to get into poison because I live in the suburbs and have to worry about pets. I wound up getting a scope for my pellet gun and will see how that goes. Thanks anyway.
>>8340 >>8339 Handguns were used primarily on horseback so having the ability to steady your aim while at a trot is imperative. The claim of having a second design function as a club is a bit dubious to me as back then the second was to draw your sidearm, typically a hilted sword that is more agile and longer reaching. It seems much more likely that it's use as that was up to how much ingenuity it's user had which later could have been knowledge passed on to subordinates through training, then you start to see metal being incorporated to add to the lethality of that tactic. As for later period muskets which essentially become the predominant primary weapon because of their length and mass you cant help but design the counter balance to function as a last ditch melee weapon when you only have one shot. Otherwise you'ld see pistol stocks staying large at their back ends instead of slowly slimming up. Of course as soon as internal magazines come around you can carry more ammo and your firearm can function as a firearm on the battlefield for a lot longer.

>>8566 Next time you have a "practicality" question about melee weapons, ask yourself this: "Was this thing used extensively during the Greco-Roman times and Medieval Europe?" If the answer is "nope" then there you have it. The melee weapon you're interested wasn't used by anyone during a time of melee warfare. That says everything that needs to be said about the effectiveness of a weapon.

>>8875 > I feel like kayaks are much slower and less manoeuvrable then canoes. It's the opposite. Kayaks are faster, but unlike canoes they can't transport shit.

Kindling is easy, but it's always a bitch to keep it lit no matter how hot the kindling seems to start out. I've been striking sparks off a magneium stick into my prepped kindling and sometimes when i'm frustrated i'll hold a cheap lighter over it. Am I just not giving the fuel enough time to dry up before burning it? Would setting down a thick enough layer of rocks before laying down fuel save me some headache?
>>8940 You gotta direct the heat as much as possible to dry out fuel, high humidity nothing will burn. One trick is to put a candle in a tinfoil tent, even with wet kindling should be able to get it going, eventually. Putting down rocks will help if ground is wet, anything that keeps humidity down and moisture away will help.

This may be a /fit/ question, but does anyone know where to find training ballistic plates that wont cost nearly the same amount of money that an actual ballistic plate may cost, or something of greater value as a priority like bulk ammo or mags?
>>9255 >training plates You mean as in weight wise or getting use to using a plate? I don't know the latter. The former is somewhat easy, grab weights that are similar to the weight of the plate, spread it evenly out on a cardboard box, glue (or fix them) and run with them. AT least thats what I did because poorfag.
>>9255 most hesco ceramic plates aren't going to run more than $300 a set; even if you're a poorfag that's not all too expensive compared to a lot of tactical shit
>>9255 The latter as I specifically wanted to train with plates without running the risk of cracking the ones i'ld use if SHTF. Anything less isn't as useful. >>9256 I think I might've found a cheaper set of plates for training for half that as again, training with ceramics increases the chance that they'll get busted up and abused which isnt an efficient use of good ceramic plates.

>>9255 >>9299 Step 1: buy a set of those plastic airsoft plates Step 2: drill a hole in the top and fill the empty center with sand Step 3: epoxy the hole shut. WOW! I can't believe it's destroying my knees, just like actual plates!>>9299 >>9299
>>9335 I get that weight being supported on your shoulders as opposed to on your hips is worse for your knees, but it's not like i'm jumping out of planes from 1000ft and walking a marathon in it everyday. Once or twice in a week is fine to casually crawl, walk and shufflerun/sprint to condition yourself to them since the same applies to a backpack.
>>9255 https://www.ar500armor.com/training-plate-pair.html You should still ask /fit/ before training with dummy plates.

What was the purpose of underhammer guns? What spurred their development?
>>9599 It's easier to manufacture them, which is quite an important thing if your only real precision tool is a set of hand files. Until around the 19th century most American gunsmiths used locks imported from Europe, and the underhammer system was developed as a simpler alternative. Now that I think about it, most percussion muskets didn't differ that much from flintlocks (after all, many flintlocks were turned into percussion actions), meanwhile underhammer only works with percussion caps. But by the time percussion caps were developed European countries and the US of A already developed the industrial base and expertise to manufacture capslock muskets and rifles with traditional-style locks, so there was no incentive to mass produce underhammer guns. Yet it was perfect the perfect action for gunsmiths who just wanted to make a cheap gun quickly.
Why do hunting rifles have magazines if you're only gonna get one shot before all the animals leg it? Wouldn't it make more sense if they were single shots?
>>9621 Because people like those features.
>>9621 In parts of Europe there is still a tradition that using single-shot rifles is more noble, because if you miss the first time then the game deserves to live. But I think repeating rifles became the standard because military surplus became ever cheaper in the previous century, and it was both simpler and more profitable for companies to offer their military arms to hunters than to make a separate single-shot rifle just for hunters. You also have to consider other outdoorsman who might need more than one shot to defend themselves from animals, or might have to kill a whole lot of them quickly. Then all of these collapsed together so that most hunting rifles have magazines.
>>9624 >In parts of Europe there is still a tradition that using single-shot rifles is more noble In my country it's also frowned upon to use lures and to camp in place until an animal shows up. "Waaaah you killed the poor animal while it was drinking water, you are scum!". In fact, lures are forbidden by law. Instead you must be a retard braindead nigger who uses loud ass hunting dogs to find pray for you, as if that takes any fucking skill or is enjoyable. We aren't allowed more than 3 shells in our shotguns either. I fucking hate these retards and I hate these retard laws. I've always ignored them and always will. I fill up my shotgun up to 8 shells and I use lures every time. The game wardens can suck me.
>>9621 Depends on the animal. Boar need to be exterminated in massive numbers. Nilgai need multiple fullpower rifle shots to take down (I've heard of hunters taking one down and finding other people's rifle bullets in them).
>>9621 Why do hunting rifles use external instead of internal mags since they usually old hold 3-5 rounds.
>>9644 After looking up what a Nilgai is it looks like it would make a neat farm animal. I wonder if you can get them in the US for a reasonable price with minimal hassle?
>>9650 Easier to service; you can put more boolet in them with minimal hassle.
>>9654 They're a fucking pest in Texas.
Hello /k/, I have a few questions for you. What Hunting Rifle do you use and what would you recommend for me? I am hunting in the deep south, mostly going after deer and possibly feral pigs or boars What happens if I were to fire a 3.5 inch shotgun shell out of a shotgun that is only chambered for 3 inch? In this case, the gauge is 12. Was image 1 related actually used in Rhodesia or is it just a meme round and primarily a marketing term? What is /k/ doing for thanksgiving?
>>9662 Depends on the game. Anything from a bog standard AR to a .45-90 chambered 1886, for you a 44 carbine will do you well enough down there. Don't use shells larger than the chamber in the gun. No clue. Cooking for an assload of people.
>>9662 >What happens if I were to fire a 3.5 inch shotgun shell out of a shotgun that is only chambered for 3 inch? The chamber is not long enough, so it would physically not fit. You could try to hammer it in place and turn the shell into a complete mess, but I don't recommend it.
>>9665 Now that I think about it, I might be a fucking idiot. It's not that you can't load it, but it wouldn't have enough space to completely open up.
>>9659 So you're saying I could head down to Texas and pick up a small herd and no one would object?
>>9650 They have usually optics installed, and that makes loading from the top rather tricky. https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=wAshu34OvC0

Are there any modern and good/interesting looking Flobert guns? Are they usable at all for self defense in any reasonably theoretical situation?
>>9667 I'd go bother with the game wardens down there. They might not like the idea of having an invasive pest spread around.
>>9673 I think I'm probably far enough up north that blue bulls wouldn't establish a population in the wild here. I didn't even know we had a feral pop here in the states before I started researching them.
I've noticed that the UK rarely used any helmets throughout the Cold War, why was this.
>>9676 They wore berets instead of helemts in WW2 for tankers too. My guess probably had to due with supply issues Also their own helms were shit until the recent MK 8, the others weren't even level I proof
>>9255 DO NOT GO RUNNING WITH PLATES OUTSIDE OF OCCASIONAL TRAINING EXERCISES I zogbotted for one, one, four year contract and the platoon I was with was all gung ho hardcore about "training like you fight" and at least once a week we would do runs with our IOTVs. My knees are fucking obliterated now, I literally cannot do weighted squats anymore without genuine fear of them giving out. It's okay to do that shit sparingly, but don't be doing it so often that it feels like your femurs are about to snap right above the knee joint. There's also back issues to contemplate, but holy shit the knee pain.
Quick question on supressors. I want to build a DIY SMG next year. I plan on using a real barrel though, an old one in pretty much bad shape but that's besides the point since it's a fun project anyways. I want to attach a supressor but I'm not sure whether I'll make it detachable or just drill through the barrel and make a permanently fixed version. What do you think is easier to achieve? I'd guess the latter since I have done it before this way but there might be obvious downsides. Sadly I didn't really do a lot of experimenting tl;dr integrated supressor vs detachable in DIY guns
>>9706 Can you make threads? Then I'd rather trust that, as it's an old and reliable technology.
>>9708 >Can you make threads? Probably not with the necessary precision. What I'm able to to with my cutting tools might be good enough for a couple of rounds fired by a semi-automatic design but I guess not for a SMG. That was actually my main reason to just drill the barrel, which was tricky enough on its own, and avoid coupling two parts together.
Open file (2.70 MB 1593x1665 thread_cutters.png)
>>9710 You just need thread cutters, and you can operate that just fine with hand tools. All the precision is already there for you.
>>9711 I have thread cutters but not a professional mount, don't know what it's called exactly, it looks similar to a lathe. Anyways, using my cutters mostly for plumbing so I don't need one usually. Hand-cranking them works nicely and if not it's not a big deal since that can be fixed with silicon seal but mounting a supressor that way? And in case that wasn't clear, I'm going to make the supressor as well, so that's some added potential for imperfection. The old barrel I use is basically scrap so I can spare it but I'd be pissed to see my threading ending up off-center.
>>9689 Do you mean Mk6 or 7? Those are also shit if you did.
What's the best stratagem to destroy a communist insurrection through the sword and shield method as a handful of loners and would the u.s. army's model for a squad sized element be useful for this even without SAW gunners?
I'm planning to assemble a unicorn round 9x39 ar, are there any other parts that wouldn't fit a standard build? As far as I know I need a 9x39 barrel and a 7.62x39 bolt and everything else are regular parts.
>>9729 >What's the best stratagem to destroy a communist insurrection Read up on COIN (counter-insurgency) operations, but the short answer is to make the locals trust the local government. Part of it is that said government has to be functional and not too corrupt, all the while being able to catch (or kill) insurgents without harming the civilians or their property. So what you need is an effective police force and good propaganda. >sword and shield method The what?
>>9733 Sword and shield as a euphemism for warfare through close combat as paper and pen would be the propaganda war, or cloak and dagger everything related to espionage. Jin-roh or angel cop is what I imagine when thinking of counter terrorism.
>>9734 >Jin-roh or angel cop is what I imagine when thinking of counter terrorism And that's why the US of A is so terribly bad when it comes to COIN. Shooting at a bunch of insurgents whose equipment is lighter than what even light infantry has is the easiest part.

Any ideas what this gun is?
>>9731 the 7.62x39 AR-15 (I built one myself) is a bit of an odd duck amongst ARs. For eastern-bloc surplus ammo, you'll want either an enhanced firing pin, or wolf's extra-power hammer spring, or in my case I have both. The magazines are subtly different and magpuls won't feed reliably. But either 7.62 or 6.5 grendel magazines to go with the 7.62 bolt, standard carrier or go side charging for that AK-alike feel, and yes by all that's holy make sure the ammo you load fits the chamber and bore you're firing it through. If you're handloading all your 9x39 (just 7.62 brass straightened into pistolbrass, AFAIK) you'll be using standard small-rifle boxer primers, and won't need the fancy pin/hammer-spring. But if you're buying the ammo, you better take steps to make sure it'll go bang the first run through your gun.
>>9745 >9x39 Unrelated but question. How has the performance felt for 9x39 versus 556? Especially the acoustic perf without a supressor?
How does ceramic compare to steel or iron when used as fragments in a bomb?
>>10108 Much less density, thus less mass and penetration power on soft targets. Probably none against hardened targets.
I'm a complete newfag to guns. I'm interested in reading material that can adequately introduce someone to guns (gun maintenance, the internal mechanics of guns, etc.). Any anons have PDFs to share?
>>10145 If you aren't interested in the depths of their history or science, then moving pictures are a lot better for learning about them, simply because automatic firearms are objects with lots of moving parts that have rather straightforward practical applications. Start here: https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=HJnhr08aIJs https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=MJGu8prreZM https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=-7Tx8OO3JGU If you want to learn about using them, then watch the videos of Paul Harrell. He is a very down-to-earth man who not only talks a lot, but makes a tremendous amount of sense and demonstrates whatever he speaks about. https://invidious.snopyta.org/channel/UC6QH13V2o68zynSa0hZy9uQ If you want to learn about the historic and mechanical aspects of firearms then these two channels are indispensable: https://invidious.snopyta.org/channel/UClq1dvO44aNovUUy0SiSDOQ https://invidious.snopyta.org/channel/UCrfKGpvbEQXcbe68dzXgJuA There are some other channels I can recommend, but those are mostly about certain niches that might or might not interest you, and to fully enjoy them you do need to know about the basics.
>>10110 Okay, thanks.
>>10108 >>10110 Reminds me of a post a couple of years and a couple of sites ago by a nipanon about how the Japanese tried making ceramic grenades during WWII and instead of fragmenting they just tended to turn to powder on detonation.
would wired field telephones emit detectable EMF radiation? The reason I ask is I watched a presentation about the annexation of Crimea the guy went into detail about how the Russians scanned EF "hotspots" then blasted them to hell. I'm just wondering if the bulk pack of memefangs I'm going to hand out to the...ahem... "neighborhood watch" could cause problems, and if wired solutions are better for fixed positions.
>>10431 Strelok, it uses copper wire and electricity, those things natrually have EM fields. Most likely its cause the russians just brough their ULF and VHF EM masts from their ships and mobile units. It's somewhat easy to find a transmission so long as you have more than 3 receptors. Basic trig math will get you the answer. There's not really much avoiding that unless you can make it appear to be some sort of microwave in strength I'm not sure how senstive military ESM are, but I doubt they will pick up a single copper wire unless high voltage or very large, or if you wire the transmitter antenna and radio to somewhere far away from you and move it after a short burst transmission. >tl;dr, if you use radios, move immediately after broadcast so they don't know where you are or if it is expendable, relay it far away from you.
>>10431 Any form of electricity across an exposed conductive surface will form EMF radiation, anon. That's how electricity works- electronics bounce along the outer diameter of the wire. The reason you need thicker wire for higher power objects is because you need more space for heat/amperage to dissipate over it. The more power (electrons) flowing across the wire, the more are going to bounce off into nowhere land since electron "clouds" are just that, a matter of probability of being within a certain area 99.99999% of the time (but those percentages don't mean much when there's a trillion+ electrons bouncing around). Consider that after a certain amount of power, insulation is not going to prevent that EMF from coming off the conductive surface. Consider that a lightning detector can detect a CRT TV from roughly 10-20 feet away and that's just house voltage, not the type of power coming off a power line.
>>10444 But strelok, I don't think a radio/telephone is broadcasting all the time isn't light also a higher detection chance. I'm actually >>10442, but do you by chance know the sensnitvity of mil ESM units? I'd wager they'd be pretty sensitive to a degree of being able to pinpoint phones.
>>10446 >Radio/Telephone broadcasting I can only form an opinion based on what I know, however broadcasting runs into two issues. 1) It's typically in a fixed position. 2) You typically have to significantly ramp up the system in order to broadcast in the first place for anything larger than about a city block/inner baseball field. The first issue means that even if you're sending out pulses, it will eventually be found. The second issue means that portability becomes a hassle unless you know exactly where you're aiming it because you'll either lose distance by not aiming properly or lose fidelity by being constricted in how far you can broadcast without being found. >but do you by chance know the sensnitvity of mil ESM units? I'd wager they'd be pretty sensitive to a degree of being able to pinpoint phones. More than likely. Fixed structures can effectively detect a cell phone from about 45 miles away if it's releasing a signal. (Let's say 20 miles for practical purposes) if they mimic a cellphone tower/protocols, but due to military-enforced communication standards, they can only detect that the cellphone is somewhere in a space the size of a restaurant, and it has to be detecting an active signal. When not actively broadcasting, fixed structures would only be able to detect a cellphone about 500 feet out roughly. It depends on the system and its intended purpose. Consider that because of how consumer electronics utilize communications protocols, they would need minimum two fixed structures (preferably three or more) to pinpoint your location since a cellphone tower doesn't actually detect where you are, it just says "oh, you're west" and blares back the request you made in that direction. Instruments designed to locate such a signal could do a better job pinpointing direction down to the level of angle and approximate distance it needs to look in, but the farther you are away from it, the less accurate it will be. Communication devices since radio (whether wifi, 4G, etc.) have relied on protocols involving blaring a severely overpowered signal out into the world and receiving a tiny signal through the air that must be filtered and amplified back into something logical to an analyzer/processor. It's the fact that everything blares its signal out into the open that encryption is so important.

What is the Ideal carrier rig if I have an AR-15? What is the best way to carry shotgun shells on my person?
>>10552 >best way to carry shotgun shells on my person? In the end it's a matter of what's most conventient to you. However choose a place where you can pull out every shell in the same manner, ie. don't use some absurdly constructed tacticool shit like symmetrical double poaches or belts where every odd shell points to the opposite direction than the former. Top of my head I think I would place a stack somewhere on my right hip pulling a shell out with a backwards movement and just using the natural countermovement to load. Pretty easy to muzzle memorize. A loose belt from the left shoulder diagonal down over the torso would be fine, too. All assuming you're right-handed and rest the shotgun somewhere on your left hip while reloading.
So wierd how there's not more modhack stuff on baofengs,, especially some basic encryption it's a good almost indestructible unit at the price of a literal toy which is pretty crazy.
>>10431 I still can't find the link, but he also mentioned they would jam certain bands then wait for a "harris" to TX and zero in on that. Also from the presentation; Russians would call family members of known Ukrainian fighters, state they were captured or kia, wait for family members to call the fighter's cell to confirm, then strike whatever phone they dialed on the front. the above makes me concerned about China and the OPM hack. If you were exposed in that leak, it might be good to have a talk with family members about responding to cold calls claiming you're captured, dead, injured if things go hot
>>10442 >move immediately Yeah, one of the big takeaways from that presentation was the Russians were hitting them within minutes >>10444 The field phones are pretty low powered, so I'm assuming they wouldn't warrant much attention. I guess it would depend on how "dark" things were in that area and the timeline (grid down for a few weeks vs months vs years)
>>10557 it would be neat to have an Arduino or pi interface with it for encryption.
>>10581 Can you explain a bit more on how you'd do that? I know a guy has connected to arduino but think a better solution would be an additional custom PCB piece. Because it would be best to keep it within one unit as practical usage instead of experimentation. This would require solder and also reprogramming of the unit functions which will likely be a quite difficult hobby project right? Since there is no service manual for the 5r and the case it quite cramped. Would be really interesting to see though. Maybe some programming wizardry could take a shot at creating some wierd basic encryption firmware on the device.
What are some decent and cheap bandoliers/chest rigs for AK74 mags? I plan to carry 4 30 round mags and 2 45 round mags. I ask, since I really don't want to give China my money. I just need something basic for SHTF/defense in general. The other option I was looking at was an ALICE rig with surplus warpact AK pouches. Anyone else have experience with this? I have literally no experience with tacticool equipment shit.

Is there a reason to bother with fancy stuff like breacher gloves when from what I can tell, they're just fancy impact gloves? Impact gloves cost like $15-$30 and at a glance would provide the same protection. Similarly wouldn't coveralls and a IIA tank top provide similar levels of protection to the sort of body armor people pay hundreds of dollars for?
>>10997 You want to have the maximum dexterity in your hands to be able to manipulate your equipment when time is a valuable resource and you loose a bit of that trying to prevent minor cuts or bruises to your hands. When youre getting shot at ruining your manicure should be the least of your concerns. The only exception I could think of is fire retardant clothing especially when handling highly flammable liquid when a fire extinguisher isn't handly convenient. Concern yourself more with zeroing your weapon on a good reflex/holo sight and training snap shooting will get you further than body armour but think of the caliber youre likely to be shot at by and consider your choice of armour wisely. Carry as little shit as possible. You'll thank me down the line.
>>11003 >First half Well that's a non-answer since impact gloves are still the same thing as breach gloves as far as I can tell, and I was asking what the difference is. Impact gloves come in various ranges of size and mobility. >Second half Proper coveralls are flame retardant and shrapnel-resistant while being fairly mobile, hence my asking. Being familiar with your choice firearm first and foremost is a given. I was asking if there's any reason not to go for coveralls and a IIA tank top instead of a proper vest/rig if your goal is pre-plate general defense that can be worn for hours at a time.
>>11005 Perhaps a better way to go about it: 1) Why are breach gloves 3-6x the price of impact gloves for a construction site when they appear at a glance to do the same thing? 2)Would coveralls/IIA tank top be preferable both for defensive reasons and for concealment since no one questions why there's a guy in work clothes walking around?

Hey there /k/ I have a question regarding a bow I recently picked up for a family member. I got it at a gunshop and when I inquired about the price for the bow, the owner ask me to give him a price. I said 40$ and he sold it to me to that price. He himself knew very little about the bow so I did some research and I got some information but not a whole lot, this is what i know about it. >the bow itself was made, or at least the camo on it was copy written in 1990. >The company that made it knew very little about after I called them. I couldn't even give them the serial number on it because they said it wouldn't help identify it. The company that makes it called Bear and apparently they still make bows today. >It has a draw length of 26 inches and a draw weight of 50 inches. >It is missing a sight and arrow rest. So /k/, what can you tell me about this bow? What is the model name and is it still safe to shoot? I hope all these images upload properly.

>>11155 I just spent this entire time trying to figure it out but, without the model or the year, its really difficult. Also the serial number isn't matching up with the 1990 illusion camouflage. or I'm just retarded
>>11156 Yeah, I read the rules but how could it be traced back to me? I bought it 2nd hand from a guy who knew nothing about it and I didn't go through any background check when I bought it. The bow was made in 1990. However, I understand your concern, I just strongly doubt the serial number could have been used to identify me.
>>11158 Even if it is not matching up with the camouflage, a S/N is incredibly identifiable if an interested in it does a bit of digging. I'd also say that the draw length weight and compound strength length might be considered identifiable if by some reason it was a unique combination that wasn't mass produced, but I don't know enough about bows to make that call. >>11159 >goverment subpoenas the bow company for the S/N. >trace down the original owner >traces down the shops they were in frequently (By the way, geolocation data on phone helps). >finds the shop owner, assuming they use telemetry devices quite a few do in clothing, idk ammo stores but haven't seen em or geolocation data for that range, subpoenas the carriers for info (it's an automated process for verizon). >dig through the GIS data to find phones within the time you bought it >profit Assuming you brought a phone there, they can use GIS or if you use new android or iphone they can use google and apple's usage of wifi to track you.

>>11158 Thanks, the bow itself is an extreme oddity in terms of what it is. >>11160 Fair enough, I understand. I won't post anything like that again. I thought buying it 2nd hand and not having to go through a background check would make it more anonymous but you've made valid points. Thanks you BV.
>>11161 oh fug too much Christmas eggnog, I put the sage in the wrong field
>>11161 No problem. The fact that its an extreme oddity makes it even worse. Just by looking at the lengths I can determine you have a bow and most likely reside in the US (Inches in the length). These days its not hard for them to catch you so long as you have any device that can connect to wifi/celluar, why do you think cars now have Sat Nav? While E911 GIS data is not always accurate (especially outside of the city), the google/apple geolocation data is extremely dangerous, these are turned on so long as you have wifi on the device, and that is how for their mapping programs they can paint such an exact location of you without strong GPS signals (usually 1-5 feet). Burner SIM? Useless, still tracked with the device ID. What if you get rid of the device and get a burner? They look for all the places you get close to and then track those devices, sooner or later they run across where you turn the burner off and switch to your primary. There are rumors that the newest ARM trustzone devices still ping when off, so your only chance is to physically disconnect the battery. By the way, its not as hard as you think it is to get that data. Most companies store it for 6-10 years, google is indefinite (to my knowledge). The main prepaid sim provider (verizon) has actually automated its program because they got tired of reading subpoenas. The other major providers basically gloss over it to make sure it wasn't filed by a phisher and just rubber stamp it. Of course, you may not be osama bin laden or american's most wanted on the FBI, but it is better safe than sorry. Edit: Cars, not Cards.

This next year is going to be really fucking gay in regards to gun laws and I have relatives that will probably try and red flag me so this isn't just paranoia I need to actually hide my shit somewhere.
>>11201 First don't use fabric cases, those wick up moisture from the environment. If you're really paranoid you'll disassemble and seal them in PVC tubing with PVC cement and a healthy scoop of silical gel and a liberal dousing in an oil or CLP of your choice. You can get silica gel in 5 gallon buckets if I recall. For shorter periods of just a few months (although it is winter now) a simple hard sided case with a soaked boresnake and a liberal dousing of your oil/CLP should be fine.
>>11204 Hopefully it's just short term, but it's good to know both, thanks buddy. My state cucked ridiculously fast in regards to guns so I'm thinking once I finally move further away from the city I'll probably look into setting up a hidden long term spot and have it all set up and ready to go in case I have to dump my stuff on short notice.
How likely is it there is a tracking device embedded into the frame of a pistol if one lives in a cucked country? The pistol in question is a glock.

>>11355 >I cannot purchase ammo legally or buy spent ammunition. No kind of ammo?
>>11355 You don't. Instead you buy it illegally, because if you can't even get brass then you can be positively sure that you won't get away with setting up a small ammunition manufacture. If you have the means to set up that then you also have the means to just buy it. The best you could do at home would be shotgun shells, but even then that would be enough of a challenge that you are better off buying them on the black market. Still, if you are that dedicated you might be able to make the projectiles and cases. https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=wXNXUpOozDg https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=o0JVm76Y37I But even then, you will have to get primers and powder somehow.

What's the verdict on clean water? How do you acquire it in large enough quantities to drink, and ideally to cook and to clean critical things. I assume you want to distill it somehow, but what's the best methods for it? There's multiple things you might want to remove from water, for example cleaning dirty water is probably easier(?) than cleaning chemical infused fluoride water from the tap. Is distillation enough to clean water from a well/river/lake/snow/rainwater? What would you do for water that distillation is not enough for, or is it not worth the effort and you should just get a different water source? An electric water distiller is obviously not ideal since it relies on electricity, but would it work for daily life when you're not facing any immediate problems? Does an electric distiller add something to the water? Are there particular distillers/brands you should buy that are efficient and reliable? What about when there's no electricity, what's the most "economical" setup in terms of needing the least secondary resources or time? Maybe this deserves it's own thread, but maybe there's an easy answer or a link that answers everything or people get upset that I don't know these things already.
>>11441 The easiest would be boiling, you could also use reverse osmosis(does not need electricity) afterward. Could simply use pure RO in a ditch but this will clog the filters fast unless maybe there is some very nice cleanable filters I don't know about that can sustain the job without needing to be replaced. In an emergency store sizable amount of sodium hypochlorite. Tablets are also availible this must be properly measured against how much water you have. There's an infograph on how to make natural reverse osmosis filter by putting multiple layers of clean sand and rocks in a vertical container, however I don't know how clean that is. >cleaning chemical infused fluoride water from the tap. You need to use special fluoride filters or distillation to remove directly from tap. There are combo's for stove top available, but always try to research the tests done on particular filter/setup. >distillation remove fluoride etc It will remove fluoride etc but it will render your water dead from micro-nutrient minerals in water IIRC this can be substituted with a proportion of rock salt added. If you're able to get well water from a healthy bore that's not contaminated this is the best form of drinking water that exists. >Are there particular distillers/brands you should buy that are efficient and reliable? What about when there's no electricity, RO imo >what's the most "economical" setup in terms of needing the least secondary resources or time? Berkey is good but you must take care of the filters and clean them as instructed every now and again, they're expensive.

Suppose this $2000 burgerstan stimulus actually goes through and I'm able to afford a Desert Eagle for no other reason to show off, punch holes in paper, and lament how expensive .50AE is to enamored boomers at the range. Are they even any good? I've never heard anything bad about them (besides being made by the kikes for a good while) but I don't tend to believe the glowing reviews of it by Hicuck and co.
>>11529 >Never heard anything bad about them. It's because everything bad about them them is clear as day. They're heavy, got low ammo capacity, impractical for anything but showing off and killing big animals from close range. Also, it's gas-operated, what the fuck? Just get a rifle for that price and chop off the barrel and stock, if you really want a handcannon.
>>11517 Why that's a really good question, also fuck sidorovich he's a jew
>>11529 Get a revolver instead. Even .454 Casull has more kinetic energy than .50AE or .44 Magnum, and you can either load it lighter or just fire .45 Colt if you want something cheaper and more manageable. Or you can go even further beyond with a .460 revolver.
>>11531 >>11533 I know they're horribly impractical and heavy as hell, that's half the novelty appeal of them to me. I already said I'd get it for the same reason a nigger gets a Cadillac. My main concern is whether or not it'll jam every other round or explode in my hand. Though, I have seriously looked at a .454/45LC lever action/revolver combo for hunting, so that's an option as well. The other main reason I'd like one is to get my normalfag friends into funs through a sort of bribery. They act indifferent if I say 9, 12, 308, or even 10, but 50 is ubiquitous- a tantalizing forbidden fruit of sorts even those that know nothing about guns understand. Basically, my plan would be to disguise a chance to shoot a 50 caliber pistol as a training course working up to the Deagle itself (knowing all of them have already shot in the past and know basic gun safety, but never made a hobby out of it.) if this sounds retarded and seems like it won't work at all tell me, I'll just save it to buy a zpap when they become available again
>>11534 from what I understand the unreliability problems with deagles come from the .357/.44 models having trouble with ammo that has too much variance in cartridge OAL. something to do with the round being too long, fucking with the ability to extract and feed new rounds. outside of that the problem seems to be having a weak grip
>>11529 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK21F7Wy7uc If it weren't for the apparently frequent malfunctions I would say go for it. It would be 100% worth it if you have the equipment to reload .50AE (At least for me). If you want big bore oddballs, have you considered a rifle in .50 Beowulf/.458 socom? Perhaps a 1911 converted to 460 Rowland/45 super? Do you have a place where you can shoot any of these? Part of the reason that I don't have a stupid big bore AR today is because all the ranges in my area forbid it.
>>11477 Thank you anon, I appreciate what you've done for me. The guy I bought it from is a good person and he's willing to give me my money back nearly a month later. We are still deciding on rather or not to return to bow or hang it up on the wall. Image unrelated.
>>11534 You could go for .500 S&W if it's that important. You'd still get a revolver that can fire weaker loads (there is even .500 Special brass available).
>>11537 Alright, so it's a jam-o-matic half the time even in .50AE. Looks like >>11533 and >>11543 are the way to go. Now I just need to decide if I'd really want .500SW for the novelty or abandon the whole idea and go for 45LC or 45-70 since lever actions and break barrels in those calibers are much more common and cheaper than .500SW. Thanks, Streloks.
>>11536 Only time I've seen a .44 dun fuck up is when people rimlock the thing.
>>11553 if money is a problem, get a Ruger Super Redhawk in 454 Casull and start reloading. With any big pistol caliber, and rifle too, you must reload to shoot with any frequency.
>>11559 I'm definitely going to start reloading in some capacity in the new year (My main go-to .32 is getting hard to find when I could get it for $.25/round locally and I'm seeing 50 packs of 9mm and 10mm for the same price at $40), and there's apparently a really dedicated group of cowboy action shooters near me, so that may be the best course of action after all. Mind you almost all of this depends on whether or not that $2000 burgerbux shows up.
If you affix a section of Picatinny rail into an M-LOK slot, and then put optics to that rail, will it work just fine, or is it going to lose zero as the recoil of the gun shakes the whole thing apart? I'm asking because it's quite baffling to see all these octagonal handguards that have rails on top and bottom, because I'm not sure if they are made that way for conveniences sake, or because it wouldn't work otherwise.
>>11570 ideally you'd have used loctite and screwed the rail section down enough to the right torque if you were mounting optics to a M-LOK slot, but the overall amount of space on one of the pic rail segments you get may not be enough to mount whatever it is you want most have rails along the top because most uppers also have rails there and they want to match the handguard with the actual receiver along with having enough room and railzrailzrailz to mount all of your shit assuming you can afford a big boy 1x56 40mm scope + clip-on night vision+thermal imager
>>11571 So it could work, it's just not practical. What I'm thinking about is to have M-LOK slots on top a of pistol, so that if somebody wants to go full tacticool he can put rails there, but otherwise they are just there as decoration. Of course most pistol optics aren't designed to mount on rails to begin with, but that's a different matter. Imagine something like a Deagle brand Deagle.
>>11572 a pistol pistol or a not-a-sbr pistol? because M-LOK slots need a fair bit of clearance between the guard and the actual barrel for the screws to go through. i'd be a bit concerned about using M-LOK pic rails for anything requiring precision as the most they're supposed to be torqued to is 20 ft/lbs each and if they're hit by something all the force is put onto the ostensibly aluminum handguard or the screws attached to it. people can definitely stably mount stuff like foregrips or flashlights to them, but I can't say I'd feel comfortable with mounting a scope intended to be more than 4 MOA to it. if you wanted to do this for weight saving reasons, the right thing to do is what deagle brand deagle does and offer two versions of their pistol, one with rails rails and one with just the cuts for a pistol scope.
>>11573 >a pistol pistol or a not-a-sbr pistol? By pistol I mean pistol, not whatever an ATF agents thinks of when he reads this word. >the right thing to do is what deagle brand deagle does and offer two versions of their pistol I've been thinking about circumventing this exact thing somehow by making the rails optional instead of making two different models. But there doesn't seem to be a convenient way other than M-LOK. >cuts for a pistol scope. Is there a specific name for those cuts?
Suppose you are redesigning all firearms, cartridges and their production lines completely from scratch. In terms of primers, are there any changes you would make?
>>11594 Yeah, make em electric. Less moving parts in a gun, less possibilities für fuck ups, more reliability. Though I don't know about automatic firearms, how the automatic firing could be realized.
>>11594 In terms of small arms, I'd either do nothing or see if they could be replaced by something like the Daisy VL. Mind you, the ammunition would be cased, just with a sealed hole in the bottom instead of a primer pocket. If the firing pin could be simply replaced by this air igniter, and it works reliably, then I can see some merit to it. I'd post pictures, but the anti-spam measures are still in place. On that note: are the primers made of steel?
How much would the world change if Bismuth bronze usage became wide spread in the western hemisphere as a metal for tools and weapons? And would it actually happen?
>>11628 >And would it actually happen? I meant in if it would be possible
>>11628 China holds the majority of bismuth reserves in the world. It's also not the common in the world (twice as common as gold iirc). They are primarily used in mechanical parts that suffer extreme wear (as are lead-bronze alloys). So not likely, too cost prohibitive. Maybe if it had some sort of superior kinetic pentration that made DU look like wet towels, but I doubt it. >sause, I did lots of research on bismuth bronze for ball bearings for a pet project of mine.

Did you get your 600 rona rubles? I'm going to spend it locally as cash rather than ordering online - USPS sucks ass lately and I'd hate to have supplies stuck in limbo if things kick off on the 6th.
>>11647 Given enough time, yes. After all, you have to remember we wuz kangz n' sheet got to the iron age before the europeans came. There is evidence to support two (maybe 3?) seperate discoveries of iron age smelting. One in China, one in the middle east/Turkey (greeks), and maybe, maybe one in egypt (technically "african"). The chinese were seemingly the first to find large scale steel production (obviously, lesser quality of 19th century steel). One of the very interesting things is that in China, during the Qin Dynasty, that some arrows were forged in a cellular manufacturing method instead of the traditional assembly line method. A shame all the knowledge was lost when the barbarians invaded.
>>11655 What is the threshold for receiving the payment? I don't make all that much money but I still didn't get the first one and I haven't seen the second one either. The only thing that's gonna happen in January is another spike in panic buying and ammo getting even more prohibitively expensive. I'm almost convinced the real push for national level gun control is making panic buyers snatch up all the stock until even owning a shitty Hi point or Taurus will cost someone multiple paychecks, leading to a drop in the number of newer gun owners over time. I know that's some 4D chess tier schizo bullshit, but I still think about it a lot.

Having dual optics on your rifle (magnified scope for long range engagements and a short range red dot/irons for CQB): good idea or bad?

>>12025 That depends quite a lot on the exact weapon in question.

>>12279 in a survival scenario you won't want to depend on the knife of your multitool. You should have a good knife that is just a knife. The pliers and bolt cutters are the most useful parts of the multitool. I would put more emphasis on having firestarting materials like a lighter wrapped in hemp wick and cordage like a paracord belt for edc. The other tools should be kept at home

And you can still stab with it relatively fine, or use it as an acceptable saw or wirecutter. It would be more of a tool than a weapon, obviously, but it would be still quite intimidating if you have nothing else to defend yourself. Of course, anon would be better off with a machete, but I think the tacticool crowd would eat up something like this.
>>12279 That this image says "get da machetes" instead of "get da pangas" always bothered me. At least get the afrinigger terminology right.
