Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology.

I often wonder how close we realistically got to nuclear war. I know there was all this 11th hour bullshit, but I feel like that peg would have landed anywhere the conflicts stopped. I bet the people living their adult lives didn't worry too seriously about it, probably the same way our generation "cares" about climate change. There's no way either side would literally glass the planet to save face.

No, nuclear war was a huge underlying fear among the public. When things heated up, the fear came off the backburner and into the spotlight. It was awful.

Is there any reason not to cast my own bullets in silver?
I've got a surplus of sterling silver and thought it would be fun to keep silver bullets in my EDC.
Plus you never know when a werewolf uprising could happen.

Silver needs to be blessed by a priest before it will deal any permanent wounds to a vampire. Werewolves in wolf form need to be killed with silver weapons, however if you can find the werewolf in human form then they die like everything else. Although in the movie American Werewolf in London, multiple 308 hits from L1A1s will do the trick.

No, by the time they would have finished it the Soviets would have had better stuff, the Abrams is a way better deal. Even the T-62's 2A20 could potentially beat it, imagine what a 2A46 gun would do to it.

Every reasonable person knows with modern technology there's no reason to have 4 guys in your MBT
Is the commander really necessary though?
An apache can fly nape of the earth, coordinate with friendlies, and engage enemies with only 2 crew.
Any idiot trucker can drive, navigate, and operate a radio at the same time.
And even then driving requires a lot more constant attention than gunning.
The "first modern tank" (pic related) only had a commander (gunner) and a driver.
A lot of tanks give their commanders dedicated machine guns because the commander's workload is so light.
This is silly, a battle tank's main job is to shoot things with a giant gun, not fuck around with infantry.
Fucking around with infantry should be left to other vehicles that cost a lot less money and require a lot less logistics.

Russians may need a 3rd guy for their conscript army, but most Western armies are crewed by well trained, experienced professionals.
It makes more sense to get better crewman and train them a lot than it does to have a larger crew.

I joined a new gun range on Saturday and went out shooting today. It was my first time shooting at a public outdoor range. Luckily the place was pretty empty, and I purposely avoided the ranges where other people were. The whole time I was there I was worried I'd do something stupid and become the new topic of a new "gun range stories" thread.

From what little people I got to observe, it seemed like it was a big dick measuring contest by who had the most expensive accessories. Guys out there with $500 gucci range bags and computerized scopes so that it's (almost) impossible to miss the swinging steel plate 500 meters away. Meanwhile I'm shooting an AK with the dust cover off so I can try to figure out why the trigger isn't resetting properly.

I'd love to see your magical mag dump 1 inch group.

>>35526897

If people can get shot by those rounds multiple times and survive WITHOUT body armor.

I fail to see why you think it will stop them WITH armor
>>
>>35526929
Vests are graded on their ability to stop x rounds assuming all are at least 1 inch apart in placement.
When you hit within that 1 inch, the effectiveness is very low. That's why they recommend you replace it after even 1 hit, even in the case of a IV.

I probably could mag dump some 1 inch groups at fucking 5 yards away, which is the distance they'll be in a home invasion you dumbass.

How fucked are you?

Here's an honest and serious question: If the Mexican/Hispanic Cartels were to be pitted against the islamic state tribes (daesh) for whatever reason let it be idealogical, money, or simply through pure hatred for one another; who would realistically win in an all out underground war?

Try to gauge on which faction has more manpower, money, weapons, zeal, etc.
