This.
Without the US imposing capitalism and democracy we will return to authoritarianism very, very fast as this will be the only strategy against influx of foreign influence.
In a broader context it’ll most likely look like brexit on steroids with a pinch of kristallnacht and a touch of military parades.
While I’m all in for such a kino imagery Europe start fucking around in the span of half a century won’t be out of the picture in such a case and then we can safely assume the instability will spill over everywhere else. And as I said - it’s really, really bad for business.

>felons can own blackpowder guns without any legal issues
Yeah they can, but they mostly don't bother getting one, because black powder guns aren't very user friendly compared to modern firearms and it takes some brains to understand how to use them without blowing them up or yourself. There's a reason why you don't see nogs running around with Colt Dragoons, because they would rather trade some crack for a stolen Glock than sit down and learn which powder charge and bullet type is best suited for a black powder revolver.
Ironically, people who are into these types of guns are the least likely to have criminal records.

Making chief is going to take years. Most don't stay at it that long. Many get out after the first four years at specialist finger pointer. Dont let the name fool you. Everyone makes specialist just by breathing. Some show talent or really like it and they will get into the junior NCO ranks. That's when you start pointing at important things and the new guys will look to see what you're pointing at. Its a good MOS to pick. Pointing has great career opportunities in the civilian world. Toto Wolf made the rank of Gefreiter during his conscription in the Austrian army and look at him now.

It seems the poor, who are so intent on imitating their dusky counterparts, risk tarnishing the reputation of all gun owners with the same dark brush. If didn't have such a level head, I might think there was some sort of psyop underway to discredit gun owners by promulgating the most obnoxious form of gun culture for the public to consume. inb4 fudd.

Hey /k/ommandos, /co/mrade here. Been helping a neighbor clean out their hoarder father’s storage units and we came across these. He was a stateside Marine during Vietnam and then a cop for decades after. Was hoping you all could identify these two bayonets (?) and recommend what to do with them (he was cremated so can’t really bury them with him)
>>
They're US M1 bayonets, adopted in April 1943 for use on the M1903, M1903A3, and M1 Garand rifles. The lower one has been shortened from the proper 10" blade down to a 6.5" blade by South Korea, to match the blade length of the M5A1 bayonet adopted for the M1 in 1952. SK called this the "M5" bayonet, even though that designation was already taken.

The Columbine Question
On April 20th 1999, two perps started firing at their school. We all know the story, however within about 5 minutes there was already a police officer responding, it was Neil Gardner. By the time Neil arrived several were shot but only 2 with fatal wounds.
Neil had a shootout with one of the perpetrators at 11:24AM, the gunmen started the attack at 11:19AM.
During this shootout, he exchanged shots with gunman Eric Harris who was in the West Entrance using the doors as cover. Neil was in the parking lot behind a Blazer.
Picrel is the line of sight of the shootout, Neil is actually the one in yellow that you can see at the cars. (This photo is after the perps were dead, but it shows where it happened)
Eric Harris was 18, and was using a 9mm Hi-Point Carbine
Neil Gardner was 44 and a Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy using a .45 Sig
The distance between them in reports is stated between 60-70 yards and that is also what Google Earth measuring comes up with.
Both traded shots and no one hit each other, but Neil reported rounds hitting the car he was using as cover, and he also hit the glass surrounding Eric.
So I ask you /k/, should he have been able to hit the shooter as a trained police officer? Or, could you have hit the shooter in this same situation? The question is important because at this time, the Library massacre had not yet begun where 10 people would be killed. Neil could potentially have saved lives.
Here is an interview with him just days after: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47AQ-rzqYsY
Ignore them calling the Hi-Point an "Assault Rifle"

That's a hard fucking question anon. Let's say he had some shitty rest at best as he was very unlikely to have time to lean over the hood, maybe leaning against the door/pillar at best. That doesn't help. A .45 SIG I have no clue how accurate it is or what the trigger is like so I can't comment there. Does he actually shoot or does he only put in what's required? Does he actually shoot handguns past 20yds? Had he ever been shot at before or even shot under stress/adrenaline? Go hunt and see what adrenaline does to an otherwise decent shooter. It's a fucking tossup without knowing any of that.

>should he have been able to hit the shooter as a trained police officer?

not with a pistol at >50 yards, that's too far to expect to hit a target that is using a door as cover. If Gardner had a red dot, then maybe we could expect him to make the shot, but he was a filthy Sigger shooting 45 AARP, so he really had no chance.

That said, the kid with the carbine rifle should have been able to get a hit, but likely didn't because Gardner was trained to avoid being hit in this exact scenario.

Basically, the cop would have needed to get into a prone position, use two hands on his pistol, and make good use of his iron sights to get a headshot. By the time he tried all of that, the kid would either be gone or have shot the cop.

With all this talk about weapon lights, what do you prefer to power them? Rechargable or disposable batteries? Looking to grab an HL-X and can't decide if I want rechargeable or disposable on the slim chance I need to replace them in the field.
>>
>>61041508
I have the HLX-1 with the rechargeable lithium battery, works great. You can pop two CR123A's in it in lieu of the single rechargeable battery and it'll work too. That's one of the main reasons I bought it since I already need the CR123As for my Eotech.

Only gripe about the rechargeable one is that you need to take the battery out of the flashlight to charge it, so you have to fiddle with the tail cap a bit. Not a huge deal I guess, it plugs in with a microUSB port so there's no charging dock/cradle needed.

only in a manner of speaking
the M1A2 was a comprehensive upgrade that changed most of the internal components in 1992, so most M1 hulls are actually only 30 years old not 40
the SEP3 was another deep upgrade that altered the interior yet again and then changed both the hull and the turret, and that upgrade is less than a decade old

In general 99% of 'Russian' shashkas in circulation are fakes which were one of the first swords the Chinese started mass producing and selling complete with fake markings and flooded the world with in the early 2000s via online sales. Three was a cottage industry in Georgia tweaking them and modifying markings and adding wear etc. No serious collector will even buy one now. Its one of the best examples of how 'harmless' mass reproduction can completely swamp and destroy the real surviving items. Most dealers and collectors won't touch them and they are particularly prevalent in Poland. Some polish 'dealers' (not all)seem to genuinely believe a new made sword and an antique are the same thing and it does not matter. I attribute this to the fact Russians stole nearly every weapon of any kind there a long time ago. Fakes and 'defarbing' (deliberately trying to age fakes and reproductions) are cancer for that reason and its why you don't take ANY youtube who pimps fakes as anything other than a scrap metal salesman. The issue shashka (particularly 1934 but also earlier) is the first sword to outright die by faking . Quite sad in a way.these faked items are 'instruments of fraud' and lie forged at should earn a jsil sentence for their creators but the whole of China and India has no concept of honesty and places like ebay and amazon accept 'antique' as an adjective to describe advertised 'reproductions'. It's a shit state of affairs. The fact your shashka purports to be somewhat rare only elevates it to 100% certain to be a fake by the way.
