What are some /k/ jobs? I've been looking for work at 5.11 because it seems like I'd fit in there, but my local store isn't hiring. The cute girl at the counter even smiled at me. Pity.

What are some other /k/ jobs or places to work that are weapons or tactical related?

i used to be hellbend on getting a /k/ job then life happened and I ended up an electrical engineer (with just an associates degree too lol). I get to see cool stuff being on site from anywhere to steel plants to lockheed martin, boeing and spaceX. it pays good enough to support a family and some hobbies but I think i got very lucky landing this job. I live in the midwest so good pay paired with cheap living and no debt such as student debt. thanks for coming to my ted talk

But also, if American buyers wanted a Hilux, they would just make the Hilux here.
Since they were making the truck here, they figured they may as well make a whole new truck to specifically cater to their interpretation of the American truck market.

Honestly, it’s not worth the high price of it these days for what it offers. Yes the power train is reliable, yes it’s body on frame, and yes it’s dead simple design.

But it’s also super archaic, unironically feels like driving something from 2001. So yes it’s reliable but is it really worth paying $50k just for simplicity? And if you are anywhere near or traverse through high altitudes, I would not recommend a 4Runner at all.

Whenever I reload .45 auto, the bullet always get pushed down further into the case when the round get chambered. What is causing this? Am I not putting a hard enough crimp?
>>
>>60984860
neck tension from the sizing die should hold it good enough
all else fails, go with a slower powder until you can run a compressed load, that'll keep the bullet from setting back into the case
something like 2400 or maybe lilgun or h110

but you probably can't really do that in .45 like you can with 9x19

Can anyone who has a Speedfeed stock for an 870 give me a measurement for overall length? I hear they have a long LOP but no one has measured one and given an actual length to compare to a stock Remington stock IIRC. Pic unrelated, it's just an auction site listing.

Anon, this is very common. Keep the stupid thing; you'll need it if you ever go hunting. I've had guns from the 50s with their original wood dowel still in 'em. I had to buy a dowel to chop to drop in my police 870 for hunting as the dowel was taken out (obviously). Fuckers making commercial plastic dowels want like $18 and some still need trimming. A wood dowel does the job for $3 and can be cut into enough pieces for pretty much every shotgun you'll ever own.

Funny enough, I can hunt coyotes with a 30rd mag in my AR in my state but a shotgun for coyotes I can only load 2+1...

>They told me not to shoot mine. Is this bullshit?
It's mostly a liability thing on their end. They are correct about the metallurgy not being as pure back then, but at the same time all Remington Model 11's were (in theory) proof tested with, and made for, smokeless powder. Your gun being from 1908 means that it is from before they actually started calling it the "Model 11" (that name was adopted in 1911) so your gun might actually be more valuable considering its from that small 1905 to 1910 era where the markings may have been different. Have a gun smith look it over if you're concerned about safety. Also watch vids on how to maintain it yourself.

>Also, mine is missing one of the recoil rings. Does this matter?
Yes it matters. You can buy a rebuild kit from Art's Gun Shop for around $120 if you want to replace all of the springs and rings, or you can just buy the specific part you need there for less.

https://artsgunshop.com/product/rebuild-kits/

I typically shoot my model 11 with the friction rings in the "heavy recoil" setting and then fire 2 3/4 inch number 4 or 5 birdshot shells out of it. Being a recoil operated gun they tend to cycle better with shells that produce more kick but the heavy setting also slows the bolt and barrel down more so they don't slam the back of the receiver too hard. These shotguns have pressed fiber recoil buffers in the reciever that often disintegrate with age so dont run anything too heavy out of them.
>>
>>60985174
Some of those old sears shotguns had defective bolts that had a recall on them and I think someone still pays a bounty for turning in those bolts. Look up the serial number range and model of bolt action shotguns affected by the recall and make sure you aren't going to die.

>>60985384
I heard about that. I've also heard about people still shooting them, as nervous as it makes me. I'd probably never put more than a couple boxes through mine, mostly clay loads. More just to hang on the wall. Shame no one makes replacement bolts but also a good thing; it keeps the guns cheap, even those that haven't been recalled.

If California Navy can cross Panama Canal and reach Gulf of Mexico then Houston refineries get rent and Texas is crippled. However, Texas has lots of armor and B-1 bombers so they can do quite a bit of damage to California. Texas civilians are armed to the teeth so no way can there be an actual invasion of Texas. If Texas civilians mobilize and form militias they can easily take over California.

I present to you an article about the current state of the Belarussian military and if either it or Russia are secretly gathering forces to launch another drive on Kyiv in 2 weeks time
https://frontelligence.substack.com/p/lingering-menace-military-transformations
It's not long and really worth a read, but some key points:
>Belarussian military budget tripled in the past 5 years, but it's still below 2% of their GDP
>This extra money wasn't spent on hardware acquisition or modernization, but rather training exercises and modernizing the mobilization system
>Said exercises focused on UAV operations and camouflage against UAVs
>Belarus setup a new operational command on the Ukrainian border in 2022, but they've done nothing with it besides starting building a tiny military base that won't be finished for another several years
>They've also built 2 (TWO) kilometre-long defensive line on the Ukrainian border which covers around 0.2% of the entire border
>Some of the Su-30s they've recently purchased actually arrived
>Russian presence in Belarus is limited mostly to a few AD units and instructors
>Wagner remnants are still in Belarus training internal security troops how to shoot protesters
>Potential for involvement in Ukraine? Lol lmao

If there is one thing I have learned about UK gun culture is that top down it is dystopia, but at the bottom it has some of the most live let live attitudes of any community I have been in. The club I am a part of is a mix of deanos, spazzes, TONS of bazzas and occousionly a target only southern English sterotype. I once voiced concerns about FAC application and the first thing I was asked was if I was a harm to others or myself. I sheepishly said no and once of the seniors said "good, cuz we certainly can say the same!" followed by a chuckle of laughs and another slapping my shoulder and assuring they would help me in any way they can in getting an FAC. One time I talked about the aspects of 3d printing in a different field, and the first thing that was brought up was "I bet ye could print a gun ye know". Once again, I sheepishly explained what was happening in myanmar and one of the guys nudged a member who was a machinist and said with a smirk "yous are wanting to get a printer off amazon now don't ya?". Couple this with some stories I won't repeat because of how slightly incriminating they are, it is clear that there is a shared passion and frustration with gun owners in the UK that I think a lot of people don't really see and only the legislation.

Singapore. Its a small city state with a one party government and a strict adherence to social order. Even if you had a gun you'd not have much to do with it besides go to maybe the couple of ranges that might exist or something.

What do you use to protect your funs from rust in the long run?
Is it oil based or wax based? What's the difference in usage and performance?
Why do you use what you use?
What's the best for large gun collections, wall guns, truck guns and the one taped under your bed you don't tell your wife about?

CRC Lithium grease. It's what I use on my hunting rifles. Wipe it on, off, and don't wipe it quite as thoroughly where the barrel is under the handguard, under the stockline, etc. 10/22 hasn't rusted all season since it got that treatment. Used shotgun got that treatment as well as it hasn't seen oil in over 20 years. But next season will be Lubeanon's stuff in the guts of my guns. Maybe even on the barrel, etc. Not sure yet.

As long as that doesn't have graphite in it, your grease should work too. I hear graphite isn't great for aluminum which is on both of my hunting rifles (10/22, AR-15). But I really have to use up the rest of that CRC; I have an exploded tube of it that got crushed inside a gallon bag. It's a mess waiting to happen, really.

Merkavas are superheavy MBTs, in fact I would say IDF is the only army in the world which effectively uses superheavies, as for effectiveness vs later Ts I don't know, so far as we have seen Hamas never had any actual tanks and Hezbollah, being shiites, let IDF do the dirty job for them without interfering, and I don't see any actual country within the region testing themselves against Israel, even without US support none of them have by this point the will or actual human capital to try an actual war against Tel Aviv.
