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.

So, does anyone make a bb gun suppressor robust enough to stand up to .17hmr pressures? I mean, it would be illegal to actually use it on a real rifle, but wouldn't it be a cheap and easy way to get an illegal can without making it yourself?

They could have all their T-72s replaced with T-90, unless they've massively overhauled the quality of their officers and general soldiery (which they haven't) another Grozny would turn out just as bloody.

It means they'll be a bitch to reload.

The primers are staked in place so they can't blow out. But it means you have to remove that crimp/staking to get a new primer in. I hate it.
>>
>>24938193
> bitch to reload
You have to run your once fired brass through a primer crimp swager or a few turns on a deburring tool. I'll gladly do that if I can get good brass cheap.

Op here.
Federal wanted me to ship the ammo to them and wait for them to receive and process until they would mail me replacements for the ones they deemed defective only.
I told them no thanks, went back to Dick's who just gave me a $10 gift card and sent me on my way which is all I wanted to make it right.

The Burnside carbine used a hinged chamber attached to a lever under the rifle. When the lever was pulled downward, the front of the chamber was exposed. The uniquely-shaped cartridge was dropped into the chamber and the lever pulled upward to close the breech. The Burnside cartridges were not internally primer and required an external percussion cap to be fired.
>>
>>24939224
Thanks.
Since it required a separate primer, does that mean the powder was exposed on the back side of the cartridge? I'm trying to picture that working, without losing your powder while in a pouch before use.

I carry an XDm 4.5 with a iwb crossbreed holster at 4 o'clock. It works well, it doesn't bother me, and i can carry in shorts and t shirt with no issues. 6'2" and 175 lbs btw.

Only downside is sitting in the car for extended periods of time gets painful, but i'd imagine that would happen even with a compact gun

Wanna play a fun game /k/?

Go on armslist and search random words. "Assault, Tacticool, Stopping power" are good places to start to find random shit.

Now, keep going until you find something interesting, something you've never seen before, or something that makes you want to vomit.

Now bring it back and post it in the thread for everyone to see, learn about, and / or laugh at.

How many rounds do you shoot a month on average? I probably shoot 800-1000 rounds a month on average.

The last few months I have been shooting 600-800 rounds of .45 ACP in addition to maybe 200 rounds of other stuff like .22, 9mm, .44 mag. In the summer I shoot some trap too so that would make my figure go up.
>>
How do you not get bored shooting that much?
>>
200-300 total if I have time to get to the range every weekend.

last month it was only like 100.

Has anyone here tried importing the russian surp from Canada? What am I looking at in paying extra in taxes?

From what I understand you just have to find an FFL that will do the transfer and possibly also pay some tariffs or taxes but how hard is the process?

Also live in PA if that makes any differences. Thanks.

>Medical investigations were carried out on the four divers' remains. The most conspicuous finding of the autopsy was large amounts of fat in large arteries and veins and in the cardiac chambers, as well as intravascular fat in organs, especially the liver.[5] This fat was unlikely to be embolic, but must have "dropped out" of the blood in situ.[5] It is suggested the boiling of the blood denatured the lipoprotein complexes, rendering the lipids insoluble

Royal Oak is a pretty special case, she was sunk in such shallow water that even if her turrets started to drop free she hit the seabed before they would've moved out of position. Otherwise it's pretty rare for a battleship to retain it's turrets when they sink because nothing but gravity holds them in.
The exception to that is stuff like USS Monitor and other things with early Ericsson and Coles turrets, some of them had a central spindle they rotated on and were secured to the hull in some fashion.

There is a war going on between to countries and your country whitch lies in the middle is caught in it
You are tasked with guarding the king out of the capital and to an airbridge 10km out
The capital is filled with boobytraps mines wrecked buildings and hundreds of soldiers from both factions
You cannot rely on the king for any support in a fight
If you give him a gun he is more likely to shoot you or himself than the enemy

And if you give him a knife hes probably going to cut himself
