Jordan and Israel are on pretty decent terms, and even the Jordanians hate Palestinians and all their bitching. Israel offered to give Jordan back some land as part of there peace agreement a while back and Jordan actually declined since the land now had Palestinians on it and they didn't want to deal with that shit.

>you are a retard. it’s better to have more numbers that are useful than a range based on boiling water.
Our very lives are based around water. Again, I reject your claim that more numbers is better. And if it truly is necessary to have a tighter scale, then you have decimals.
>78° vs 79° seawater makes a huge difference, especially if you’re in there all day.
No bigger difference than 25 C to 26 C.
>celsius is way more useful for scientific shit, but in day to day life fahrenheit is best.its designed on a human scale, not a boiling water scale
You just think that Fahrenheit is better because you've been unfortunate enough to have used it all your life. You've presented exactly zero convincing arguments as to why it's the objectively better scale. I might agree if the temperature always stayed within 0-100, but it goes regularly both under 0 and over 100 in climates where people live, so it loses even that advantage.

Celsius is objectively better simply because it's easier for drivers to know when the road is dangerously slippery.

There's no need to have more than about 5-8 rounds in a handgun unless you are just a really bad shot. A handgun is a sidearm, designed to repel surprise attacks at close range.

IMPORTANT TO FLORIDA FAGS
www Dot faceberg DOT com SLAHS Supersponge SLASH videos SLASH 10215627067051031/

Open carry group member assaulted by police officers while legally open carrying while fishing, guns confiscated, had to be treated by EMT afterwards.

These guys had the florida statute printed out and available to the police during the entire interaction, and live streamed 23 minutes into the interaction until the phone died or faceberg shut off the stream.

Yes the guy is a dumbass who wouldnt shut the fuck up, but everything was legal, still the police handcuffed, manhandled, searched, and confiscated all their guns with no warrant or due process.

IF you do not want FL to get fucked over and become Cali 3.0 NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP IT.

I didn't say anything they did was illegal, nor did I use racial slurs. You're this assmad about the police fucking with people being retarded and confrontational on purpose.

The whole situation could've been avoided if they were actually fishing and cc'ing like a reasonable people. The situation could've quickly deescalated had they just not run their mouths. It's 2018 USA, when cops here about people with guns, they absolutely over 9000% have to assume the worst.

I had a cop roll up on me gun drawn one time at a friend's store in a strip mall many years ago. The cop was cruising the lot, saw me through the big pane glass windows with an AR. He did his thing, came in gun drawn, talking about put the weapon down. Did what he said, answered his questions clearly, he ran my information and the situation became a non issue. I didn't get on the myspace and cry about how the police man made me lick his boots. I decided that maybe there's a better time and place to show guns off to people than in the public space.

Lucky for these guys it is a free country and they weren't breaking laws, just being open mouth retards. Now the lawyer jews can make a lot of shekels by harassing the police for harassing these stupid people.

I would say that's dumb.

My understanding is the draw to a bolt action is that the bolt remains closed while the bullet travels out for better pressure build and more velocity. Also not having the bolt move around means it's not going to affect your personal accuracy abilities. Plus, it's easier to keep your brass. But that's just my understanding.

I like how the current Japanese destroyer superstructure is reminiscent of their old heavy cruisers.

Stick it into the iron pipe preferably with a wall at one end. Drill a hole then take those firecrackers preferably very strong, attach a wick to it, stick it into the tube, then that even a shell and wait and shoot!

To the best of my knowledge, the controlled differential and transmission was exactly the same for all WWII* Shermans across the board (armored covers aside), with the only exception being a higher gear ratio in the final drives of the Jumbos. If you have any proof to the contrary sauce me up.
*Postwar mods like the Israeli M-51s may have had different transmissions installed, I don't have evidence pointing either way regarding those models).

That's the real issue. The way I see it, it's still going to be cheaper to have a gunsmith go over and fix a mis-assembled JRA than buy a Fulton or LRB. But I'm assuming it doesn't cost the full cost of the rifle to unfuck it, so what do I know.

Unfortunately I can't help you much there. I was lazy and just got a DSA because it was too hard for me to figure out what exactly to look for in a parts kit FAL. We really should make a guide.

From what I've gathered, here's what I can tell you
>there's metric FALs (Stg 58s and Imbels seem to be the most common) and inch-pattern L1A1s (Those fancy wood furniture FALs you see are the most common), the most important difference being they have unique magazines between them - a metric won't work in an inch-pattern gun and vice versa.
>Metrics seem to have better aftermarket support, probably because DSA is building with Stg 58 tooling
>take a look at who built the gun, research their reputation if you haven't heard of the company before. As always, be wary of Century - all the Century FALs I've really looked at felt like shit.
>keep an eye out for the normal things you'd do looking at a milsurp, as well as general build quality
>if you decide to build one yourself, remember that metric- and inch-pattern guns have different receivers

Take all this with a grain of salt, though. The real experts on this are apparently all on FALfiles, so unless someone here wants to call me a retard I'd suggest checking them out for better guidance.

Good to know. Any idea how long a waiver takes these days? Recruiter said I basically need a civilian doctor to give me a physical to send in for my waiver. Had a very intensive physical for my current job (industrial electrician with Bechtel) but the doctor wouldn't give me a copy. So I need to get that physical done ASAP. I want to ship to basic asap because I'm almost 31, not getting any younger.
>>
>>38348310
What do you mean the doctor wouldnt give you a copy? Go back and demand it, they cant withold your personal medical records. No need to waste time and money getting another one done. Honestly the waiver takes as long as it takes the doctor to get to it and go through it, so make sure they have everything they need so to not delay its progress.

I'm seriously considering getting a Brown Bess kit from IMA. Does anyone have any experience with these? I know it's going to be some work, but is it doable with home tools? My real concern is the state of the lock and flash hole. I'm not sure if I could repair the internals of the lock, or where to find replacements. It says they're all functional though, so I'm not sure how much of a concern that is. The idea of doing something like this sounds really neat, I just don't want to end up with something I can't at least eventually finish.

>>38346034
If you just want to build a flintlock kit and have no experience building them or at least with basic wood and metal working get a Kibler. The hard parts are already done and it’ll be much better as a shooter.
If you want it for the historical value I’d check at how much it would cost to get at least the lock professionally restored or at least looked at. Thing is if you try to do it yourself and fuck something up you may not be able to get it fixed.
Either way you should probably do some research on what’s involved first. Asking /k/ doesn’t count.

From what I've seen from youtube and gun forums that show up on google, most of what looks like rust is just dirt and grime that's built up over the past 150 years since it was covered in 19th century "cosmoline." The stocks are the same color, and assuming they aren't rotted away, usually clean up pretty well. That's not to say there isn't rust and pitting under there, and that is a real concern.
>>38346707
From what I've seen, all kits will require fitting to the barrel and lock. The most challenging part with the stock looks like pinning the barrel in, but that's not terrible. I have seen at least one guy that had to replace several parts within the lock, and I'm not sure I could confidently do the same thing. Several others never had an issue, so I guess it's the luck of the draw.

I've tried a few including Bravo, CYA, and comptech and they've each been uncomfortable due to sharp edges, pokey corners, or general noggery.

Would something like vedder or clinger be better or maybe something else you've had better luck with.
