Way to prove him right, you fucking 12-year-old.
Yeah,cool story, bro. NATO went over to functionally trying WWII-style terro bombing agianst civilian infrastructure because it couldn't touch the serbian military with the air campaign. And it didn't do shit about their operations in Kosovo. A ground campaign would have won eventually, but that would have been bloodier for NATO than both Gulf Wars combined three times over given how crafty and tenacious bastards the Serbs were compared to Saddam's goons and how they knew to use the terrain. FFS, they had battalion-scale ambushes in place at the most important border crossings NATO ground forces would have invaded through for several weeks and we only realised they were there when they all went and marched out of their positions when Belgrade folded. First hour of an actual ground invasion would have been the worst clusterfuck since the opening hours of Tet.
What is SEAD?

>have no counter
I'm not sure why everyone seems to think Serbia in the early 90s is relevant to war today. I get that on the outside it looks similar with planes and tanks and shit, but targeting systems today are much different.

Not in any way shape or form. SIG 550 is an AK knockoff.

Does anyone else really not like handguns?

I was going to get a handgun to shoot but I really would prefer a long gun because honestly I am worried I will commit suicide with a handgun, whereas it is alot harder to turn a longer gun around and aim it at myself.

Has anyone else felt similarly?

Its kinda like when I'm afraid of heights; I'd never jump in a million years, even back when I really wanted to die. Because falling to me is just the worst way to die, even though it;s over pretty quick. But like, the possibility that I COULD jump, or that the bridge would collapse, is what kept me away from the edge, even when there was a railing. A full window was better, but it still freaked me out.

Same with handguns it feels like it's too easy one night when I'm sad to just pick up and put next to my ear. I don't have to even go through the trouble of hanging up a rope and stepstool, I can just go for a walk somewhere there won't be much to clean up. But with a longer gun, it's like, it's too long to point at my head and still pull the trigger without a stick or something. Like that will make it suddenly safe. It's a weird feeling.

Anyone else feel this way?

I believe you have depression OP. If It's gotten this bad, then maybe you shouldn't own a gun right now. Work on yourself, consider medication or a therapist. But hey, if you think getting a long gun will keep you from blowing your brains out, go for it.
Land of the free motherfucker.
Please refrain from buying, and being around, firearms.
Go to a psychiatrist and see how you can get help.

are you a student, or are you working?

was a /b/tard in 2003

become /k/ommando a few years ago after buddy told me of /k/'s existence
>>28020981 (OP)
I started browsing 4chan around 8 years ago. Started off at /b/, as most do. After awhile, I migrated to other boards. Mostly /a/, /fit/ and /k/.
Best of /b/ threads with best of /k/ posts.

Double sided dildo mounted scopes seemed like my kind of party

Now as I type this I am sitting in class to get my possession-acquisition-licence
soon I won't be a nofuns shitposter
I will be an SKS slavshit shooting shit poster.
Was semi-pro cawad00ty faggot back in 08. Love guns but never really perused my interest until a few years later. Started googling guns, learning everything I could about them. How they operate, who made them, what militaries issue them, ect. Eventually found /k/ and have been at home ever since.

Surprisingly I haven't once browsed /b/. will I regret it?
Friend told me about WG for finding wallpapers.
Eventually realized the letters at the top where other boards.

What does /k/ think of this?

Apparently they fucked patria over and the finns withdrew from competition. So it was their own stupidity.
Wouldn't tracked be better?
No roads on beaches, as far as I am aware....
Tracked also gives more room in the vehicle, and will be lower down.
Modern wheeled vehicles are much more capable of offroad than they used to, tracks do not provide IED protection from a V-hull and ground clearance.

In the 30 ton or less weight class it is hard to justify tracks over wheels nowadays.
Tracks can be built just as high/v-hulled as any wheeled vehicle.

IED's were only such an issue because iraq/afghanistan was a decade long insurgency with popular support for the insurgents.
Rebuilding a road with an IED under it isn't something thats going to happen in a war.

Especially for an amphibious vehicle, tracks would be far better. Wheels are going to tear up a beach until its impassable.
so does saic have it's own vehicle or are they working together with bae?

Dollars to donuts you're one of those fags who thinks you're supposed to be able to live indefinitely out of a BoB.
Yeah, I'm in PA. I have about 5 days worth of food, I'm looking to get up to a week though. I'll have 4L of water on me, with a 2L bladder and a 2L surplus canteen that was my grandpa's.
Obviously not. This is just to get me to a location with the rest of my group. The only guns I have are a 10/22, Rem 870, and a .30-.30. I just prefer the 22, but will take all three if I can.
>This is just to get me to a location with the rest of my group.

Good. So many people get this shit wrong.

In that case I'd say you're good, just throw a handgun in there for 2 legged predators if you can.
555 really might be more than you'd want for that. Snag 4 or 5 BX-25s and load them up, immediately usable ammo is far more important. If you really feel the need keep an extra ~100 loose ammo in reserve.

>In 2014 the FBI released a report detailing the potential combat effectiveness of the 9mm cartridge when compared to other calibers such as the.45 ACPand the.40 Smith & Wessoncartridge that was specifically developed for use by the FBI. The report indicated that the new powders and more advanced bullet designs used in current 9mm defensive loads allowed for the caliber to deliver comparable performance to other calibers, like the .45 ACP, and .40 S&W. In addition to this the lower recoil, less wear, and higher capacity were all reasons that the report cited for the recent surge in orders of the ammunition from various police agencies. With a wider selection of officers being able to shoot handguns chambered in 9×19mm many departments choose this caliber so they can standardize around a single firearm and loading, making logistics and supply easier. Due to all of these factors, law enforcement orders of 9mm ammo from all major ammunition manufacturers have spiked dramatically.
