Fuck Hi power
Fuck Browning
Fuck FN
And Fuck my father who gave me this piece of shit. Im getting a glock 17
This piece of shit is literally the worst pistol ever.
It has non removable shitty sights.
It has this retarded magazine safety that prevents the magazines from falling.
It is heavy.
I can't reach the safety or the slide stop.
The single action is retarded and isnt suitable for carrying since it doesn't have a firing pin block.
And gun Is so badly done it's so wobbly and shitty.
The extractor is broken (might be my fault buy i dont think a glock extractor would ever break no matter what)
The only good thing about it is that it's a nice gun to look at

Here's something to consider. The only county without restrictive gun laws is the U.S.

The U.S. was the first to enact a widespread outright ban with our 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. However, the ban was watered down substantially from its original draft. The original draft called for a total ban and confiscation. The final version allowed existing guns under the ban to be "grandfathered" in. And a compromise was reached to allow at least two "evil features" per gun, which allowed manufacture of the AR-15 to continue with flash hinders and bayonet mount deleted. And legislators had to agree to a ten year sunset clause.

As much as I'd like to claim the legislation was watered down because of "Muhammad Second Amendment" and "Shall Not Be Infringed", I don't believe that this is the case.

As I said before, the U.S. was the first country to enact sweeping legislation banning whole categories of guns. But or legislature did so with no mass shooting to give it the emotional appeal to shove it through under altered, so it was heavily watered down.

I believe the governments of the U.K. and Australia took note and either waited for an opportunity or made one. Dunblaine killed two birds with one stone in the U.K. It allowed the government to eliminate witnesses in a potential child sex ring scandal that eventually broke a decade later and allowed them to use emotional appeal to shove extensive legislation through Parliament.

Whether it was a false flag or not, Port Aurther afforded the Australian government the same opportunity.

Basically, here in the U.S. we dodged a bullet. Our politicians had buck fever and shot to early. The watered down law allowed us to grow our gun culture.

>>30112354
It almost did. We dodged that bullet because our government was the first to try it and didn't use a false flag to gin up support for it.

Sandy Hook was like a "to little, to late" attempt to do so after the American firearms community had nearly two decades to grow and build political resistance after the 94 AWB was enacted (incompetently).

/k/, let me start off by saying I come from a very pro gun background. My father and grandfather both served in the military and I was once on the same path but couldn't continue due to not meeting certain requirements.

That being said I am starting to realize we all need to compromise a little bit on gun control.

Rather than limit magazines why don't we just require a background check for every 100 rounds sold. For example, if a person buys 500 rounds of ammo then they would need to go through 5 consecutive background checks, one for each 100 rounds.

Thoughts? Anyone else want to chime in on compromises we can make?

Compromises have been tried, they didn't fucking work. The leaders of the gun control movement don't give a fuck, a "compromise" is a victory to them, they Will not stop until firearms are banned.

How could one make swords viable again in modern warfare?
Could there be added some form of technology that could make the sharp piece of metal more useful than guns?

If they could be used to deflect bullets like in my mongolian cartoons that would be something.

F-16 was originally manufactured by General Dynamics, which was sold to LM in 1993.
I think F-16 will be retired not so soon. At least there are plans to extend life time from 8000 hours to 12000 for some of the airframes.

If they had their lives cut short, they wouldn't be getting life extensions.

>You really think all these things were first engineered for Block 2B??

I'm saying that if even if the Chinese obtained 100% of the data on the F-35 program (though practically impossible), then they wouldn't have all of the jet's capabilities; a lot of the stuff like multi-ship fusion and advanced EW weren't achieved yet when the espionage claims were made.

I was US Army Signal Corps for 7 years, half of that in an SF Group SIGDET. UAVs are run off GEO sats which have a minimum 600ms ping because of the limitations of the speed of light. Nobody's flying the biggest, armed models locally, they're all flown from Huachuca.

Ok you nut job.

It was no secret that a large percentage of tires in the Ford plant went to the Wehrmacht in the late 30s and early 40s. it's also no secret that Rockefeller was the second largest share holder in I.G. Farben, a German chemical company.

It's also no secret that Ford had anti-semetic views, he was published saying they were shady, distrustful people. Rockefeller also had some wacky political views, seeing himself as some kind of catalyst for a global society. Which he also published.

No shit we let the morons across the ocean duke it out while we supply them. The U.S. gets out of the depression with manufacturing and our competitors are to busy shooting each other to do anything about it. That was the smart thing to do. Its not like we totally dominated to continent when it ended. The Soviets controlled half of Europe and had influence in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. We knocked out a competitor, Nazi Germany, but also helped create the Soviets as another.

Not entirely of course, we live in what is essentially the ideals of the enlightenment taken so far it has become harmful, its a natural tendency in humans to go to the end of every idea without asking if its good or not just because its progressive. What the media does is simply encourage miscegenation, push refugees to the point it becomes creepy, in the hopes of diluting the white races.

What the orthodox jews like is a homogenous society for themselves, like in israel. They still benefit from living inside a state that has many minorities rather than being the only visible minority like in the beginning.

Most stormfags you'll encounter here are from the /pol/ board on the same site, and the average age will be pretty low. They are probably not representative of the population of paleo conservatives, monarchists, nationalists and fascists that blame (among other things of course) jews for the state of our culture.

Okay, the miscegenation thing is another one I never understood. Why would anyone be actively pushing this? What is the benefit for the Jews or anyone else in 'diluting the white races'? I also personally don't see why this is even necessarily a good or bad thing. It's just something that happens.

As for the refugee problem, I do understand the issue people have with it. It's naive to think that such a large influx of people into a country isn't going to have some kind of effect. However I still think that these people need to be looked after, and, apart from encouraging race mixing which I've talked about already, again fail to see what the benefit of this would be to the Jews.

in my experience the only way to get Garand thumb is to be totally unfamiliar with the gun. once you learn that the bolt WILL NOT CLOSE as long as you maintain firm pressure on the top cartridge, then you can leave your thumb in there for as long as you like without fear. then just lift your hand in a swift motion and your done. easy.
