As you can see I am no electrician but it works so fuck it. What you have here is two 6v lantern cells taped together and wired in series to double the voltage to 12v. I then curled the wires into little circles to slip on the prongs of the plug. I also applied a little bit of tape to one plug end so the wire does not conduct to the metal plug body. It sits inside of the hungarian mag pouch with the dividers cut out next to it and the extra cordage will also fit inside. Everything is held with friction and it seems to work fine. I will note that at least my set makes a faint ticking noise when its being powered so you know you still have power. But once energized the tubes will run without power for 5 minutes or so anyway.

>For years, always thought Stand Your Ground allows you to shoot people who are assaulting/battering you, such as someone punching you repeatedly.
>Always see cops not get charged whenever they shoot someone who was punching them or even charging at them without a weapon.
>Find out recently that SYG pretty much only allows you to shoot someone attacking you with a deadly weapon, and even then you still are often charged with at least manslaughter.
>Find out that if someone is raining punches on you, you can't shoot them or even "escalate" the force, but simply sit there and hope you don't get killed from the punches.
>There's even a guy who filmed himself being repeatedly punched by a guy who he then shot to death in defense and he is now serving 40 years in prison.

TL;DR: You can't shoot someone for raining punches down on you, but you're expected to either be skilled enough to fight him back using only punches or less, or take it all, hoping he doesn't kill or seriously injure you. What the fuck.

Well I already posted this request of mine previous thread, but I might aswell post it again for you for good luck of a delivery.

May I request the woman who'd look like pic in the left and a shorter/less taller young male as a couple?

The girlfriend who'd look like in the left image is wearing the same summer outfit and hat and has the same type of gun in left image in her right hand. And she has her left arm wrapped around the boyfriend's nape.

And the boyfriend would be wearing the same outfit and getup in the image at the right. The boyfriend's shorter or less taller than the girl and he'd be looking up to her talking to her enthusiastically.

And both of them are walking together in a snowy day.

Requesting a female human soldier and a male kitsune/Fox Guy.

The Female human soldier can look like one in ref pic related as she'd be smiling to the camera, with maybe her holding on to an FN F2000 assault rifle.

And the male Kitsune, or Fox Guy. Is also smiling to the camera, is slightly taller than female soldier, and has an arm wrapped around her. And he'd be doing a peace sign hand gesture too.

My dad wasn't anti-gun, and my first gun was a baptism gift at the age of 2 weeks, but I didn't really learn how to shoot until boy scouts. Then I did the juniors program at the local range, then the military, and now I'm a far better shot than he's ever been.

I think he did well by me. I may have taken his lessons about questioning the world around me closer to heart than he ever did himself.

But he's a self-admitted Marxist, an atheist that can't even stand a whiff of Christianity without getting grouchy and preachy, and the insufferably arrogant prick somehow enjoys watching Trevor Noah.

>The Raptor made its combat debut on Sunday in Afghanistan, the jet conducted a ground-attack mission, pummelling suspected drug labs in the country with small diameter bombs, Air Force officials said. While some observers criticized the mission as overkill and a waste of resources, officials inside and outside of the Air Force said it served a purpose by employing particular munitions designed to minimize collateral damage and by offering realistic training to learn more about how the weapon system performs in combat scenarios.

>“We opted to use the F-22 for this operation because of its ability to carry the small diameter bomb that was necessary to keep collateral damage to an absolute minimum, and because the SDBs needed for the operation were located there with the aircraft,” Lt. Col Damien Pickart, spokesman for Air Forces Central Command, said in response to an email from Military.com. At the onset, the decision to use the Raptor seemed puzzling, as the Taliban and militants in region do not have the sophisticated weaponry the aircraft was built to dodge.

>The F-22s were joined by B-52 Stratofortresses and Afghan A-29 Super Tucanos to conduct an expanded strike mission — called the new offensive campaign — against the Taliban’s revenue stream, said Army Gen. John Nicholson, commander of the NATO-led Resolute Support mission and U.S. Forces Afghanistan. When asked about the strike, Nicholson said the Raptor was employed “because of its ability to deliver precision munitions.”

>what engines are good ?

While the gas turbine has lots of advantages, I'd say that it isn't superior enough to a diesel to be worth it. And in most armies that aren't packed to the gills with helicopters in the armor brigades, fuel commonality will be an issue as well.

A lot of this is contextual, as well. The merkava is excellent for the threat environment it operates within, but would suck if the British or Americans tried to adopt it.

Really the only way to know for sure is a series of for-real tank battles. Hopefully that's not in the offing anytime soon.
