Naw, niggerrigged/jerryrigged is for when shit breaks and you do what you can to get by until you can get a proper fix.
Smekalka is ignoring the existence of a problem because the cheap replacement is "just as good".

I was doing some research on the 38 Cassul round and found this hilarious article on the 38/45 “safestop” pistol - a 1911 shooting 45 ACP necked and loaded with 357 wadcutters.
Features of this batshit (kinda based?) boomer rambling Include:
>45 being referred to as “Hardball” throughout
>sucking off police agencies as much as possible
>extolling the virtue of carrying two revolvers
>getting too fat for CCing two revolvers and making a franken1911 to compensate
>serious man love
And much more
Article here:
https://sightm1911.com/lib/review/38-45_safestop.htm
TL;DR: just read the article it’s the fuddiest shit ever and hilarious

>Its the same damn thing just with paper enhancements
It definitely isn't. Unlike the SST, it has no engines, only impulse and maneuvering thrusters. It has a larger cargo bay (because no engines), and could carry larger/heavier payloads (it could also glide a bit better than the SST). It could carry anywhere between none (as per the automated flight) to ten (admittedly as emergency) passengers. It was much closer to the idea of a manned space pick-up than the SST.

Just to add on to what other anons said, if you look at the original HARM it had fuckhuge fins for maneuvering, inherited from the Shrike/AIM-7. To make it fit in a weapons bay they had instead use the tail fins, the chines exist to make up the lost wing area (and then some). The missile also now rolls and then turns like a conventional aircraft rather than using skid-to-turn. This is more aerodynamically efficient. The thing is barely an AGM-88 now.

Also, what’s your preferred game meat? What’s your favorite game recipe? Me personally, I’m a fiend for a good elk pot roast.

Although there's a bit of unknown factor, I'm just gonna keep doing it. It's tasty and nearly free protein. I chew tobacco and maintain a nice lawn in parts of my yard. I'll take my chances with the deer prions.

As a geologist I'll say climate change is bullshit. Not in the sense that a warming trend hasn't been ongoing for thousands of years and is likely to continue. Not even in the sense that there isn't an anthropogenic component, though non-politized sources like SEPM dropped their estimation from "definitely 70%" back in 2007 to "uh somewhere between 50% and 20%". But in the sense that the effects are hard as shit to model and likely vastly overstated. That said even if the non-predictive shit models from the IPCC where accurate I still wouldn't care because I'm a genocidal white nationalist who wants to seize vast tracks of land from all the mudmen. Also invade Canada that too.

It must be reitterated in every single chink thread that the US has twice the industrial output of China assuming you use the same criteria to define "industrial" which everybody uses except China. A good 3/4 of Chinese output doesn't quality because its all based on services and construction which nobody else counts. And that's before we found out that the chinks just "miscounted" themselves out of 100 million bugmen or likely more and their GDP is probably 60-80% of what they report based on electricity consumption.

Hong Kong had another 15 years of pseudo autonomy, the Chink government just decided that deal was over and cut it short. It made it clear that the Chinks had zero interests in upholding agreements even if it was in their fiscal interests to do so, which it very much was given the amount of state money laundering that Hong Kong's unique position allowed. A actual trillion bucks of investment flowed into Chinkland via Hong Kong just in the previous 5 years most of it effectively laundered with state acquiescence so that the investors got a little less fucked and the final destinations got a lot more of the money. But now they get nothing to tax at all, great job faggots was the posturing worth it? Kikes and libtards were falling over themselves to give you free money because they hate and fear white men so much they would rather invest in any shitskin nation but never America and never in rural America. But you had to piss in the punch bowl when you could have strung them along for decades and secured your military and political position.

Could something like ablative armor from Battletech be possible, where you have armor that the enemy has to shave away one layer at a time, so instead of firing a single missile and penetrating a tank, they have to fire hundreds of missiles?

BT ablative armor is actually the second-most fantasy-based part of the setting, only behind dropships with their near-Expanse-level-efficiency system drives and large sizes that, for their tonnage, actually makes them about as light as the same volume of air. Just accept it as part of the setting.

Some people think hammer snag is an equipment issue, but it's a training issue. I've done around 100,000 draws from concealment in my life with hammer-fired guns, and I only remember getting hammer snag on my shirt twice. Both times were with a Model 10, and both could be attributed to my own failure to pull up my shirt far enough before drawing. A weirder situation that has happened a few times more is when my left hand slips off of my shirt while drawing from an AIWB holster and the bottom of my shirt catches on the whole front of the pistol while I'm pushing it out, so I get about halfway out until my shirt won't stretch any farther. There are a few other ways that I've screwed up on the draw, and almost all of them come back to not clearing my cover garment properly. So if you learn to draw correctly with any pistol, hammer snag will never be an issue.

I'm aware of mass issuing at the start but not a corresponding level of actual use - much like all the TDF rifles from the big urban hubs that (thankfully) returned to armories without a round put through them. Granted, even though I was in the fight from the jump, nobody was everywhere all at once, and shit was chaotic as fuck. So maybe I just completely missed their use.

Later on, we mostly ended up either putting them into cold storage or using them for training, in my neck of the woods.

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.
