>I don't understand that one.
What is there not to understand? I've got well researched specific ones, but I can absolutely understand how fucking painful the enormous wait was and the temptation of multical particularly as qd systems improved. Unfortunately there is no such thing as a free lunch, and this is a case where jack of all trades is definitely master of none. It did indeed make more sense to have each can be very good at the specific thing. But "I only want to deal with the NFA and wait shit once" is something I can understand in principle particularly for those who are newcans and don't understand yet. Like, I didn't either, I took people at their word and believed it and went for it, but I didn't really GET it until I ran one. Then, like lots of others, I slowly got more. And the first for each caliber was definitely the hardest, the wait and trouble honestly stopped being so bad after.

I think that is one thing that will go away though as costs drop and the wait goes away. The big incentive towards "use one for everything" was avoiding the wait. More, cheaper more specific cans is better.

>I can’t believe cans are more expensive in the us than in yurop.
They aren't $1500 they're like $400 and up, but yeah they're more expensive. Dunno why you'd find that weird though euroanon:
>we typically have to pay WAY more for guns and stuff than you guys
Yeah, because for you guns are ultra regulated and a pita, with a small resulting market. But cans are fundamentally cheap and easy to make at least ok ones of, and for some of europe they're unregulated. So you get good prices. Whereas for us guns are very lightly regulated. In my state we do not even have permits at all, you can just use your driver's license or whatever else to show you're old enough and then get a gun. You can conceal or open carry it, shoot it wherever etc without anything else.

But cans are federal. They've been historically somewhat irritating to apply for, have an effective high floor price ($200) minimum, and up until this year had crazy waits. All of which distorted the market. The low end doesn't exist, because nobody wants to buy an object for $100 then pay 200% tax on it and wait a year and have no warranty. If you're going to go through with it at all might as well make it worth it, which means something durable, well supported, and more gucci.

>Now, these are obviously targeted at the vast majority of civilized countries around the world, where people are not allowed to carry real firearms. And even these can be strictly regulated.
So, basically, these nutjobs brag about being disarmed and then go on a grand quest to find the most powerful BB gun to replace 'real firearms'.

My question to you, fine Eurocucks, is... WHY? What's the point? The Huben GK1 in .25 is more powerful than a .25 ACP gunpowder & lead pistol in standard purse carry sizes, so it would seem that you "guys" aren't as willing to be disarmed as you let on like you are. What's your game? Serious question.

the revolver is cool. we we're shooting each other with them at my last family reunion.

Technical question : why don't we have auto turrets ? Or even better, auto turrets mounted on land drones ?

We have ballistic computers for missiles, artillery and even lasers but I don't remember seing any for automatic guns. Imagine a computer firing bullets with next to no reaction time and 99% accuracy on long range, aiming at anything moving in its line of sight, is it that hard to do ?

Modern computers can easily take in account distance, windspeed, recoil... Even predict human mouvements with AI models. So what's the hold up, why do we still use human infantry missing 95% of their bullets.

Here's some more pics. You can see on the inside of the crane it has a Model number of 10-6, but the barrel is clearly marked .357 magnum. Also the cylinder has recessed chambers normal for S&W magnums of that era. The New York State Police wanted a Model 10 but chambered in .357 magnum, so S&W obliged and made a run of .357 Model 10-6s. When those turned out to be a pretty good idea, S&W formalized this variant as the Model 13. I don't know if this one was used by any particular LE agency, but the holster wear would make sense for that. S&W made about 4k of these 10-6s in .357 magnum before switching to the Model 13 designation.

Were heavy cruisers a mistake? An 8 inch gun has mild advantages over a 6 inch gun in range and armor-piercing, but puts way less metal downrange because a 6 inch shell is the heaviest you can expect a gunner to load manually. Would Japan have done better if she'd armed her CAs with 5x3 6 inch guns like the Brooklyn-class?

Someone else would always be able to build a bigger ship with armor practically impenetrable by six inchers. CAs were one tool in a big toolbox that needed to be used together to accomplish meaningful objectives. Even with air power being king, they were still a useful tool and anyone without them would have paid a price. That said, Japan had some very interesting doctrinal quirks because they knew they were working at a heavy disadvantage. Foregoing the already-mentioned and insurmountable industrial, logistic and resource problems, as well as the role of air power, the biggest mistake of the IJN, by a vast margin, was their lack of radar and attendant fire control improvements. Their cruisers could have mounted magic fun size 18 inchers and they would have lost to USN cruisers just as fast. They just could not hit a damn thing in comparison. As mentioned they did have doctrinal compensations for that reality, such as vastly superior torpedoes and very impressive night training, both of which got them victories early in the pacific at Guadalcanal; however, at that time the USN was very much still getting up to steam, and they - or at least a number of unfortunately appointed commanders - made some very stupid mistakes.
So all that to say, the size of their main guns was just about the very last priority if one endeavored to unfuck their navy.

well, that's the difference between being proof against 6" and 8" fire at effective combat ranges back then
consider the reverse:
>you mean to tell me that 6" cruisers will kill 8" cruisers simply by dint of pouring more (low power) shells and hoping it will batter the (better-armoured) heavy cruiser into submission, hoping not to get hit? this is Fishermania all over again, you're off your rocker!
and yet that was the plan, and it worked

What knife would be best for stabbing an armored drone? There have been times in 21st century combat when knives have been used effectively to stab vehicles and electrical lines powering defenses. Soon, terrestrial drones will flood the battlefield. Because of weight limitations, drones can only carry so much armor, if any, leaving them partially vulnerable to knife attacks.

Robots/drones may also someday carry bladed weapons since the weight of ammo and power requirements of energy weapons limit range and killing capacity. A light, fast robot with a knife would have greater range and kill without running out of ammo or power. There may come a time when humans will have to go mano-e-robo in a bladed battle to the death.

Consider also the robot turret or sentry gun. These would likely be heavily armored against bullets and shrapnel, but have stabbable weak points which could jam the gun or knock out the targeting sensors. What knives would be best here?

I don't think an "injecting" knife would be of all that much use against a robot. IRL acids aren't like those in movies, they take far too long to act to be of any use, and assuming the robots developers aren't morons the electronics inside will be potted anyway which means the acid won't be directly contacting anything metal anyway. That applies to trying to cause shorts as well--you might as well make whatever fluid you use conductive because why not, but the chance of it actually making contact with something important is low. Rapidly expanding quick curing foam is not a bad idea, I don't think the chance of it blocking a joint is very good but it absolutely could fuck any kind of air cooling the robot needed. A computer doesn't run for shit if the CPU fan & heatsink are all gummed up.

Instead of putting something *in* the robot, how about putting something on the exterior of the robot. Paint fucks cameras and IR sensors. If the paint contains the right substances it can block RF as well, blocking communication the robot might have.

My mom wants me to take her shooting for Mother's day. She has a .38 Special Revolver, which she's fired, but hasn't been shot in over 10 years. She also has a shotgun that she got about the same time, which she has never shot.

Firstly, is the ammo that they bought ~10 years ago still good to shoot? Anything to look for in the shotgun shells or ammo that would be an indicator of unsafe ammo?

Secondly, how safe would the guns be to shoot without cleaning them prior to going out to shoot?

>is the ammo that they bought ~10 years ago still good to shoot?
Yes, as long as it isn't damaged, ammo keeps a hell of a lot longer than 10 years.
>Anything to look for in the shotgun shells or ammo that would be an indicator of unsafe ammo?
Visual indicators like corrosion or general damage are all you're going to have to look for.
>Secondly, how safe would the guns be to shoot without cleaning them prior to going out to shoot?
You said she never shot the shotgun, so that should be fine. Unless the revolver is overly fouled to it effecting the action, it's fine. Sounds like the poor thing hasn't been cleaned in a decade tho.

My problem with the statistics regarding types of guns is that so many people that don't know anything load their shotgun with whatever is the cheapest thing they can get at Walmart, usually 7.5 or 8 shot, and think that they are good to go. Despite that, shotgun stats are still at the top, right next to the rifles. You also have to consider that with rounds like 44 mag, 25, and 32, they probably have very few actual shootings with those cartridges. Statistics only work with large sample sizes, so the autist that insists on using a 32acp, probably practices with it a lot and shoots it well. I very highly doubt that 32 is more effective than 9mm or 38 special and on par with 45acp.

I don't think it lasts very well normally so wouldn't do it to anything nice vs a cerakote or even vinyl decals which at least are easy to swap later, but I think customizing the look of stuff how you want is based so go for it.

>yeah tactical advantage totally is critical to me the rando civvie gun owner
Another based thing about painting is it does separate you from retarded larpers like this faggot. The first rule of firearms ownership is to have fun.

I am a big fan of it
I paint all of my detachable magazine fed semi auto guns with the rust o leum camo paint
I usually do some kind of camouflage pattern that I make up as I go
when the paint wears off I simply paint again
