>like she's a WoW character

Good luck trying to get your wife to wear body armor in public when there's no statistical risk.

It's either me or nobody dude. I'm only even considering it because I've worn Level II no plates & steel plates police body armor for years before I moved. I would usually put it on before target shooting, especially with more than 1 shooter.

it's a safety thing man, I've got a grandpa without a thumb due to a similar accident.

I hear gunshots almost every day. If I take a walk in the woods and go the wrong way I can easily walk across another person's backstop or some drunk guys shooting into the woods. Getting shot while shooting, especially when you're not shooting alone (like I said), it's totally a risk, especially when everyone isn't 100% sober.

Not sure how that makes me a goober. I don't currently own body armor if you're paying attention. I simply had access to an extra set for a while, so I'd wear it to the range and stuff. People who make fun of it are just being dicks against safety. It's one thing to wear this shit every day, but if it's specific instances of increased risk, it's the logical choice.

I'm totally wearing body armor for clay shooting with my kids as they age. Lord knows you can only trust your own aim.

I bought one but i don't trust pine wood (also don't know much about swords or sparring), and i wanted to buy one for a friend (not too expensive) and maybe take some sparring lessons.

I need a good pack with about 40-50litres of space to use hitchhiking/freighthopping
Ideally it has
Long, tall design
Simple
Preferably no zippers
Molle straps are nice
Id rather it wasnt camouflage, but a dull color like green or brown
Lightweight-ish
Quality. Surplus is generally what i would call good quality
I have a low budget of like 70$, so buying a used one is an option

Made this baton in wood shop. Couldn't make bats, told the teacher it was a table leg. The black duct tape is to stop blades from sliding down and cutting me hand. I also made a best once out of one of those 3 mag mills pouches by sewing shoulder straps and a belt to it to make a rack vest. When I played airsoft, a fake aimpoint comp2 stopped working, so I drew a reticle on. Actually kinda liked it more. I also once saw a jihadist wearing armor made from sheet metal.

My father and I are having a heated argument. He says a woman he knows survived a point blank blast from a 10 gauge shotgun to her lower back. I say her abdomen would have been vaporized, no chance of survival. I told him he had been lied to or misheard details of the story but he thinks it's legitimate.

So, help me out. For the sake of argument and possible variables, assume the following scenario:

>Middle aged female victim with 10g shotgun aimed anywhere in the square area between the bottom of her shoulder blades and the top of her buttocks
>Gunman anywhere from point blank, muzzle-on-back to 10 feet away
>Any kind of possible ammo, from buckshot to a slug to a steak knife jammed down the barrel.

Who is right? Would she have been blown to bits or could she have survived?

She'd be paralyzed but not torn in half. She'd almost certainly die from such a wound however. Even if she was shot on an operating table. Usually, at distances less than 10 feet, no matter what you shoot someone with, a shotgun is going to not disperse the projectiles and it will basically just be a 3/4" slug of lead until it hits something. So basically just rip a 1.5-2" wide hole into flesh and have the temporary wound channel added. At point blank, the gases from the blast would probably cause significant flesh damage as well.

Realistically, it would be almost certain death but it isn't impossible to survive. Given a strike to the spine would cause so many other complications not even related to bleeding out or destroyed organs, the chances of survival are very slim. But nothing is going to be vaporized but some blood that exits with the projectile.

Pretty sure there was a US soldier deployed in iraq or some similar desert shithole that got hit in the torso by a friendly M2 and survived. .50 BMG would be doing a similar amount of damage, and IIRC he required multiple surgeries and had a lot of long-term medical issues afterwards.

Hello, /k/.

I'm in the process of building myself a cabin innawoods, and setting up a reasonably sustainable living space for myself. Right now, I still have a regular apartment and job, but I intend to eventually go full hermit in my cabin and avoid heading into town if at all possible.

What I need are incredibly durable and easy to strip/troubleshoot firearms. I don't care how pretty they are, and I'm willing to trade 'comfort' for 'indestructible'.

Effectively, I want some guns that I can bring with me in the woods and that will easily last 10-15 years if need be without me heading into town (obviously with proper maintenance).

I'm not really interested in bringing more than 3 or 4 guns with me either, ideally

  • a pistol/revolver
  • a shotgun
  • a hunting rifle
  • a semi-auto rifle

Bonus points for cheap/plentiful ammo. I intend to get a handpress for reloads but I'm not looking to set up a bench and station or anything.

You can pare that back to probably two guns. A full power 308, 243 or 6mm Swede for larger game in a mauser action that will never break, and a 22lr or 17hmr for small game.

There are plenty of solid guns for the first, I'm actually pretty partial to the Ruger GSR, which is pretty much the definition of a carry always, shoot rarely 100% bulletproof gun but if you were on a budget you could get a surplus Swedish Mauser and it would perfectly fit the bill. The latter can be filled with nearly anything, but if you're not budget limited a takedown with barrel inserts for a couple of small calibres would be ideal.

I can't really see any real reason you'd need a pistol or shotgun, and no semi-auto will last 10-15 years of hard woods use without serious maintenance. There's just too many working parts like springs that require replacement for it to be a true "never needs servicing" rifle. More working parts means more parts exposed to wear.

A penis is only useful as a weapon if you can will yourself to an erection. I am not at that level yet, I can only will my boners away on short notice. But I will soon conquer this hurdle as well.

I too lament the fad of buying into big dumb trucks. In my experience on the road, it leads to a lot of rude driving behavior ie cutting off, no signalling, break checking, always on smaller vehicles. In fact, my first ex gf wanted a F-150 and that bitch was -tiny-. Like 5'4. She gonna need to sit onn a stack of phone books lol.

Having been around firearms since the 90's, I can tell you, nobody gave a shit about guns until 2008. Guns were just something people shot animals with or robbed others with. Then "Obama" and all hell broke loose. And again in 2012 around the school shooting.

I got an ass whooping once for target shooting. It was wasting ammo and all. Guns weren't recreational or for fun coming up as a kid. Now everywhere you go people shoot for hobbies and shit. Perception has changed completely so it is far different but people also treat guns completely differently as well. My dad got his ass beat with a belt just like mine for going out and shooting beer bottles and cans and shit. And his dad received the same if he used anything other than a .22 to shoot shit with. Of course, wasting shotguns shells for them meant starving so I guess it was kinda deserved.

I was listening to NPR and it seems like the US commander in Afghanistan wants five
thousand more men on the ground. Thats not the problem for me.

NPR essentially said through the course of the conversation that after 40 years of continuous civil war nobody knows how to end the conflict. Currently the problem is that the Taliban is seeking savehaven in Pakistan and coming over the border to attack US forces and the Afghans.

Now in a perfect world we would cross the border and destroy the Taliban camps.
But this isn't a perfect world.

So I came up with an idea to surveil the border and allow US forces to react to incursions by the Taliban without having troops patrol the entire border. The system would use ELINT and then be used to dispatch US and Afghan forces to interdict the Taliban.

I know its a good idea and it's going to take time to develop it. But once I develop the idea to a point where it's ready to present to the appropriate people in the Department of Defense who do I talk to?

I'm posting it here because I can't monitor a thread of halfchan.
I'll also post it on r e d d i t.

hanging out in internet echo chambers has probably given him a very sound and real world view.

I'm sure nobody in the military or intelligence apparatus has ever thought of this OP. You must be a genius.

Being able to robotically follow orders in a high stress environment is vital for proper unit function and a military is stronger working together.

You can earn the right to make the orders by demonstrating your competence to do so but if you can't do that you should be robotically taking orders.

Look at the Romans versus the first barbarian nation assaults. The legions fought as a unit, the barbarians initially fought in a loose crowd without any cohesion or real leadership and they got crushed.

NPR essentially said through the course of the conversation that after 40 years of continuous civil war nobody knows how to end the conflict. Currently the problem is that the Taliban is seeking savehaven in Pakistan and coming over the border to attack US forces and the Afghans.
>Currently
Try for the last 15 years.

>So I came up with an idea to surveil the border and allow US forces to react to incursions by the Taliban without having troops patrol the entire border. The system would use ELINT and then be used to dispatch US and Afghan forces to interdict the Taliban.
Do you seriously think that isn't exactly what ISAF has been doing for the past 10 years?

Desert eagles have horrendous resale value. You can pick up deagles that have been through one or two owners for practically nothing since nobody except stupid fucking turds will actually buy a deagle second hand.

People who don't understand guns buy deagles new. Anybody that knows anything about guns knows deagles are jam factories with a shitty weak round that is more expensive than 30-06.

They're loud and flashy. But they are complete dogshit. Kinda like a Mustang. So idiots that don't know shit buy them, and sell them down the road when the hype wears off. And nobody wants them so they cost half price when you sell.

A book can easily stop a .50 AE. It just depends on how thick it is.

>deagles are jam factories

This right here. Anybody dumb enough to buy a gas operated rotating bolt magnum deserves to have their money taken.

I shot a deagle once, I thought it was pretty stupid honestly. Just buy a rifle. Also that kickback was terrible, Ive heard that the revolver version is less terrible but just as superflous

I feel like guns we're perfected in the early 1900's and everything since then is just wasteful
