Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

>This marks the first recorded instance of such a measure. The incident suggests that the Russian president is extremely fearful for his life and does not trust his own air defense system. Notably, Yakutia is located about 5,000 km from the Ukrainian borders. Ukrainian forces do not possess weaponry capable of striking Russian aircraft at such distances, yet the dictator remains wary of an attack.

what defense against SAMs can a pair of Su-30SMs provide?

I was listening to innawoods spooks stories and got to thinking: is there a way to make ammunition that would be universally useful against lots of different cryptids? I mean, could you design one bullet that could check the boxes to kill like at least 5 different monsters reliably? Silver hollow points with ash in them? Silver fmj, dipped in holy water with a tungsten core? Thoughts? You can share spooks stories too, intrigued to see what all cryptids are around the US and which ones I'd be most likely to encounter.
>>
>>61898687
I want to get an idea for an all-around useful ammo because plain silver bullets might work against certain things but they aren't super easy to get ahold of and what if you pack those but end up coming in contact with something where just silver won't kill it? I've heard some stories of creatures being weak to ash, so that's why I thought of the ash inside the hollow point.

>>61898687
Also: what if certain cryptids have super thick fur or bone and would be able to stop or deflect a standard bullet? I guess some AP could work but then again would standard AP work against a cryptid or would you have to use some other thing like silver for it to penetrate and actually kill the thing? I've thought about this a bit, but I want opinions from people who may be smarter and/or have actually seen a cryptid.

So, comparing to the comtac 5, comtac 6 offers the NIB auto group thing and includes arc rails for an extra $400.

AMP offers the NFMI thing to pair with their proprietary earplugs for extra NRR for like $700 ($900 when including the cost of the NFMI plugs).

Man, idk. The extra features on the comtac 6 seem sort of pointless considering I'll just be larping with one other person, but is the NFMI shit really that good? Buying two pairs so we're looking at $1700 vs $3100 here.

Hello /k/, like many of you I enjoy delving into the world of the Reformers to laugh at their inane ramblings. The name Mike Sparks will of course be framilier to any of you as the retard with an obsession over the M113 that he insists on calling the Gavin, to the point of wanting to make it fly.

However, Sparks (who I will be calling Sparky for the rest of this thread) has so much more to offer, and too little of it is well known enough. From insisting we need to get rid of the concept of an airbase and instead drill tunnels into mountains (to save money, of course), to assurances that USS Wisconsin could defeat North Korea singlehandedly, all the way to 747s towing A-10s that have M113s with glider wings strapped to their bellies, Sparky has an idea for everything. Most of these ideas can be found on his website Combat Reform, as well as submissions and articles pilfered from various sources. Sparky and his ilk proudly proclaim their theorycrafting under the moniker of the 1st Tactical Studies Group (Airborne).

I invite you then, to pull up a chair and enjoy some truly batshit crazy interpretations of how warfare should be fought. Our first excursion into this madness will be a presentation entitled:

I would actually recommend talking to some of the Baen authors; many of them are very open and willing to help a new writer get started. It's a very different culture compared to the mainstream publishing houses; a lot of those guys are in it because they love writing and can't *not* write, as much as they are for the money. There are also Baen-adjacent folks like Sarah Hoyt who are big into helping new authors get started in today's mess of an industry.

Forgive me if this sounds dumb or naïve, but before industrial production really became a thing how did militaries get all the guns they needed?
Something like the 30 years war and early modern era in general which say plenty of firearm use all the way through the napoleonic wars, these were all pre-steam engine and industrial revolution. Who was making such vast numbers of guns and how were they making them?

They hired gunsmiths

You shouldn't be chasing for spec values but they do exist and if you wanted to know what "better spec" values are there's a way to know which unit is desirable over another.
Most retailers won't post this info as they build NVDs to order, first come first serve, and depending on their grading scale of high, mid, low tier it may differ from retailers. If a retailer offer a “ready to ship” fully built units they will list the spec values. Hand select is an option from retailers that will try to match to your spec requirements.

the 1999.99 option is under the GP selection after you choose to add a "Photonis White Phosphor Tube" which is pretty lame but it's probably just a lazy place for them to throw an extra handful of skus they have for GP tubes rather than setup a completely new product listing as opposed to any malicious intentions.

5.7 is the future. Every argument made for 9mm over 40 apply for 5.7 vs 9mm and then some.

It's dramatically easier to shoot than 9mm for the average shooter aka no shoots / once a year shooters. Everyone that shoots it makes better groupings and has superior follow up shots. It's simply physics.

can you post a non-photoshopped pic of "your" pistol? I can tell that's fake by the pixels

Pizza is alright. Skip the chicken bake. The best option is the hot dog.
>>
>>61898902
The pizzas are really good for the money and IMO beat most national chains, unfortunately they got rid of the combo pizza a few years back and only have cheese and pepperoni now though. The chicken bakes are worth buying frozen but not for what they cost at the cafe imo. They recently added a turkey and swiss sandwich that's expensive by Costco standards ($7) but surprisingly good though.

Pure retardation.
Costco pizza will blow out any national pizza chain, it's only real limitation is the lack of toppings but they needed a nerf otherwise Papa John's, Pizza Hut and Dominos would be bankrupt by now
