How does an aircraft defend itself from a SAM? I understand physical countermeasures like flares and chaff but what are the types of maneuvers? Does anyone know or are these kept secret?

What was the best anti tank weapon of WW2? I heard that the Germans lost partly because they had no good anti tank weapons till 1943, and what they did have was bulky things like this. What was the best weapon, and what do we use today, besides missile strikes?

Holy fucking shit. We Forbes now.

Does anyone know how or when creep was approached for the article? Or did he go to the author?

It feels really weird to see my name written in a news article.

Im actually pretty impressed to see that we weren't painted in a negative light with words like "fanatic" or "right wing extremist". The author seems to be pretty unbaised with the story. Bravo!

There's nothing wrong with this.

Its his attitude towards other people with differing opinions that annoys me, like when he unironically called people who wanted to boycott Mossberg/CMC for suing the bejeesus out of AR-15 drop in trigger manufacturers "communists".
>>
>>30080443
It annoys me. If you don't have any sort of "gun credentials," it's fine to do a gun review, but you really need to either disclose this, or at least don't pretend like you do.
>>
>>30080467
Why?

Everyone already knows that a lot of guns were designed to kill people, and have done so. I personally don't care about that part and just want to hear the actual merits and negatives of a gun in terms of mechanics.
Just my personal opinion though.

From what I've read, the Tirpitz wasn't anything special, with bad armor and relatively weak guns, and both were blown up on their first time out by the britbongs. Why were the Bismarck Battleships so feared and why does everyone rave about them now?

Nice fanfic I guess.
>>
>>30080530
You know that early battleships based on the All or Nothing design philosophy didn't even have splitter protection outside of the armour zone.
>>
>>30080556
It's fanfic because it doesn't resemble reality in the slightest. Most likely because you have little knowledge of historical facts. Let's look at how the *older* incremental designs did vs all or nothing design in gun battles.

>incremental armoring
Hood
>dead after one shot
Bismarck
>loses combat capabilities within minutes, dead
Hiei, Kirishima
>substantial damage from fires

>All or Nothing
South Dakota
>took a fuck ton of hits of all kinds, fires quickly doused, only lost combat capabilities because of human error leading to loss of power

>All or nothing was a result of the weight limitation of the treaty. And there is nothing modern about it.
All or nothing concept was a pre-treaty development, and the Yamato-class and the Iowa were all or nothing designs.

So my father gave me his Hi-Power as a graduation gift.
The gun has never been shot in 30 years and the nearest range is 1 hour away from my home so i haven't shot it yet.
I do however have some 9mm fmj with it and i decided to dry fire and test the gun a little.
When i put the magazine in and rack the slide the first round goes in easily but if i do it again the rounds always jam and i have failures to extract.
My question is this a good way to know if a gun is reliable or not?

There's this thing called the hydraulic needle effect. If you're too close to shoot so you spray, you're better off shooting. If he catches you off guard, you should have trained better..

My question:
>enlisted with the Air Force as a wrench monkey
>BMT is in early August
>running to lose weight (not fat but want to look better)
>working my way up

I ran 5 miles a few days ago, but had to tone it down and I'm doing 2 a night now. I ran an average of a mile in 10 minutes, but I ran around a lake up and down a lot of pretty steep hills. Is this okay, or should I focus on speed and not length?

Running is the only thing that has me worried. I'm doing a test with the recruiter soon but I just wanted to check here quickly.

Also, how likely is it that I could switch asfc to police or even EOD after 3 years? That's a very slight possibility but still on the table.

>>30079512
Beofang is best if you can use the computer to program, you can even set the power to only communicate over a few hundred meters or connect to repeaters. But I prefer brick 1980s Radio Shack talkies, they're cheap, they can get the job done well enough, and you can kill someone with it if you hit them hard enough.

Handgun with mounted light. Able to use a free hand for doors, lights, 911, fighting if they pop out too close.

Try moving through your house with a shotgun ready and shouldered. Unless it's a sbs it'll suck. Handgun gives you more mobility and faster shots. Pistol grip shottys are just retarded.

Also knowing what your doing helps

What firearms can be bought in California that won't be horribly gimped or molested? Bullet buttons, special stocks, etc. It all disgusts me.
Alternatively, does anyone have a summary of the super scary salt weapon ban?
