You've both kinda hit the money.
The NZDF lacks funding, but we've got a surprising level of talent and experience in training certain situations.
I'm actually buddies with one of the guys that trains (among other groups) the Navy SEAL's on land nav and survival stuff.
Also we've historically been pretty aggro in proper wartime. If any of the big nations sent as many of their youth to WW1 as we did, the war would have genuinely been over by christmas.
We just don't really have a war currently to fight, and a lot of other shit to do because somehow we're both geographically isolated from big economy, and also Pacific Jerusalem for all the other smaller islands out there.
we don't need an army. thats australia and americas job
Sorry we can’t dock our nuclear carriers in NZ, your people are going to have to swim here.

>The Canadian military plans to destroy 11,000 of its Second World War-era pistols by the end of this year. The move comes as the Canadian Army has confirmed it has received the final deliveries of a new 9-mm pistol as part of a $19.4-million project. The military purchased the P320, which is being distributed to units. It replaces the Hi-Power pistol that has been used by the Canadian Forces for decades.
God damn fucking leafs. They belong in a a museum and in my hands! Sell them to the US you fucks!

This was in response to the Hi-Powers being of poor quality, not because they are dated. The P320's aren't even a good choice, out of all SIG's the only reason the P320 was chosen was because yankees get them for cheap

Well buddy, now I'm sad.

It's all fun and games, until you fuck up your equipment and don't have the tools and expertise to fix it.
I was born on fort Hood, but sadly I grew up in Oregon, actually in Portland.

I'd suspect that what gave me my ravenous hatred of DIE, and all the other globohomo crap, was having to deal with all the gay stuff in Portland/school.

There were only 4 openly Republican kids in my school, and we were all military brats.

Perhaps there are only two ways conservative kids react to being in that kind of toxic environment, either they give in, or in my case, just go in the extreme other direction.

Also, Canadian Browning HPs, amirite?
Well sir, I'll let you know we went to Romania for 9 months, having to deal with the great dangers of drunk privates, no Walmart (AGHAST?!), getting my thumb lodged up my ass, REPEATEDLY, and Romanian Hookers giving guys the clap.

As well as me having to console most of the married guys about their wife's fucking Jamal stateside the second they got on a plane.
>Watch, in a few years they'll stop selling government vehicles and start just crushing them. A politician might even film a video where a V8 taxpayer-funded surplus truck is crushed and then they/them drives away on some faggot bicycle
I think you are right, sadly. I'm just kind of shocked they didn't send them to Ukraine kek. I bet the Ukies don't have time to sift thru the number of them that are clapped out beyond repair.

they've killed so many commanders who were simply taking a drive downtown with high-precision strikes. also, hezbollah commanders aren't publicly known so finding them is a challenge in and of itself

but it's not so obvious that they should be able to do this. at least no so many times

>maybe it's through SIGINT. they're tracking these guys through whatever comms devices they're using maybe even cellphones
i higly doubt it. hezbollah aren't retards and know that the israelis have some of the best sigint in the world. so it's highly unlikely they're walking around with cellphones or other trackable comm device.

Because they don't usually last very long compared to ACUs.
not that jihadis care about shooting civilians, but why would you want your non combatants to wear the same outfit as a soldier? why not just khakis and a polo?
Afrika Korps?
Because its alot more simple and having an issued uniform makes it less of a hassle when it comes to logistics, especially if they are working at a base or something. They are the closest thing to a protective uniform.

Guncotton cartridges, which were tested by Austria in 1860. They could be dropped into a muzzle-loader without a ramrod and fired at 6-7 rounds per minute. Guncotton itself was discovered by accident and found more use in explosives, and needed to be weaved in a certain way to make for suitable presures in a gun barrel.

Probably the only tech that could've saved them from Bismarck.
being a real nation instead of the resentful populations of the various hapsburgs estates was the only thing that could have helped them.
every gun is a launcher now though?
the only problem was that munitions still weren't advanced enough to be as cost effective as they are now
From what I've seen, apart from the usual 1848 stuff that all the Europoors had, there weren't any real ethnic tensions until around 1917.

it could have been stable but if you fuck up in the refining process at all it'll become incredibly unstable, which is what happened. I think something similar happened on a ship with cordite but that could have been also rough handling and lack of cleaning that lead to a fine powder of explosives being spread everywhere on the turret

New thread

There has been a lot to of talk about 3D printing making firearms easily accessible to criminals, terrorists and other bad actors but I've yet to see one example of a gun that makes gunpowder redundant. Smokeless powder is probably the biggest hurdle when it comes to the reliability and availability of an homemade firearm so you'd think gangsters or Myanmar freedom fighters would be using compressed air

What gives? This thing is almost 250 years old
110 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
Lets sum up here.

First and foremost, this is a thread about Airguns being compared to other home-made weapons. Everything should be judged through that lens.
Your complaints about the viability of home made powder have been incredibly hypocritical through this lens, because your absurd levels of supposition (supply chain problems and government tyranny will make ALL precursors to ALL propellants effectively nonexistent!!!) would, if anything, effect high quality airgun manufacture to an equal or greater extent.

BUT, I recognize that you are insistent on PRETENDING that is not what the thread is about, and instead you want to argue about the objective potential for restraining propellant manufacture via loss of logistics or government tyranny.

ON THAT TOPIC, your primary criticism of home made black powder as a resource was the possible lack of sulfur, but with the exception of match heads (which you claimed would disappear as well without any cite-able real world examples) you were unable to actually explain what compounds among the black powder alternatives would be unavailable, and how. You just kept screaming "shortages" like an imbecile, when we know for a fact that african tribesmen, South east asian hillbillies, and japanese retards have all manufactured alternative propellants under situations of extreme privation or tyranny.

You must actually examine what these alternatives are made of if you are going to suggest their precursor elements can be meaningfully restricted.

You complained that ignition devices could not be manufactured, when lighters and gas torches are not only extremely simple devices that would light more consistently than a traditional lock, but in fact conventional slowmatch could be created for a simple matchlock even if all the flammable gas and liquid and flint was magically reclaimed by the government.
Takes literally a barrel, salt water, copper wire and a power source sweaty
Good post for that retard that has been doing this kind of threads for months at least.
He'll keep moving the goalpost because he indirectly wants us to answer something specific. Or he simply likes these time wasting baits.
You can do it with a boring bar you giant retards.
>possible lack of sulfur
You may as well worry about a possible lack of oxygen.

There's a big difference in requirements and expectations of survival and operational rations.

Low moral high calorie meta?

>Ja, Hans, eat your food calorie bar

I mean it's an emergency ration, not an MRE. It's actually serving it's purpose quite well, something that can fit into your pockets for 24h-48h survival while navigating through wilderness.

The US.
That's about it we are very safety concious since the only real threat the US faces is public opinion domestically so minimizing the chance our soldiers have of getting hurt is paramount.
Can the aussies fill a crew of 135 competent sailors inside a va class boat let alone three of them? Also isnt aukus having some issues with the us concerned about getting the uk and aussies up to proper security levels?
Given eight years lead time? Yes, absolutely.
They're already doing some officer training on virginias, so they're gonna try.
Australia wants a larger number of smaller subs with a smaller crew, which is why the long term plan is AUKUS. The smaller number of higher-crew virginia subs is a stepping stone to that, and should average out in the long run.

They consider nuclear subs the most important strategic asset they can have, they will find a way to crew those subs no matter what.

I'm guessing they'll start to scale down the collins class fleet at the same time, which will free up some resources and manpower.

Wood you?

You don't got boomer cash. 20k auctions for war time real trench guns.
The retrograde is amazing, a friend owns one and its so fun just a blast of good quality (mossberg duh) and aesthic. Only downside is no slammy blammy
only retrograde I would bother with is a 590a1 which is the same price as an m37 brand new. the m37 is all steel and there is a company that makes the bayonet lug for $150... You're not really spending much deeper going with the real deal... the lugs should fit any 12ga barrel but you could hack down a Winchester 1912 or a savage 620a for something historically accurate and both of those can be had for under $1k last time i looked.
