French gov avoids political fallout by having anonymous deaths in the legion when doing Afghan and other unpopular campaigns the French population doesn't support, or conflicts that the government doesn't want to have to acknowledge they are involved in such as being embedded with Chadian troops fighting Boko Haram and meddling around in CAR.

For the French gov to deploy the regular French military requires all kinds of political campaigning and authorization but the Legion can be deployed whenever they want without anybody's permission.

>the Legion can be deployed whenever they want without anybody's permission
Eehhh, no. The legion is commanded by its generals who get their orders from the french government. Legionnaires are french soldiers, fighting for France.
There has only been once when the generals of the legion disobeyed the government and it was considered a civil war, this was in the 60's I think.
The legion is considered an elite light infantry unit. Like all elite units in the world their operations and identities are usually withheld.

Source me on your claim.

It has nothing to do with political fallout. If they send the French Foreign Legion, that's a decision made by the French government.

The whole point isn't that they don't involve French forces, the point is that they can throw dangerous foreigners at the problem instead of French citizens. If you send the legion, nobody at home can bitch about sending young French men and women to die, because only the commissioned officers are French.

Just a friendly reminder to people who are intelligent enough to understand.

STOP SUPPORTING OPEN CARRY.

DO NOT OPEN CARRY.

If you want to see our 2nd amendment vanish before your eyes, then go ahead.

I am not saying it should be illegal, it is constitutionally legal, but there is literally no reason to ever do so, where CCW is permitted. The purpose of this post is to hopefully convince the holdouts that they should stop supporting O.C.


Yes it should be legal.

No, there is never an appropriate time to O.C.

> Hiding them only gives them space to continue pushing harder for searches, registrations, background checks and other methods of malicious scrutiny.

And yet, in complete irony, open carry seems to do little else but terrify the anti-gun folks, piss off the cops, convince the fence-sitters that guns are bad after all, and make the government pass anti-gun laws EVENFASTER.

I see it as a 'damned if you do and damned if you don't' situation: open carrier's either tote guns around in full view and get demonized and crucified left right and center, or they get a CCW, stow it out of view and give cops reason to go even more (pig)-shit on someone who was otherwise minding their own business, within the rightful bounds of the Constitution.

>Can't think of any reason why a range wouldn't love to have everyone shoot suppressed.

It's a blanket restriction on all NFA items, usually. Most places just require you to notify the range officer of your intent to use an NFA item and they usually just want to check it out to make sure you've got proper credentials to be using it.

Various counties however may still ban the use of NFA items for totally arbitrary reasons, however.

Type 2 FFLs are not authorized to deal in NFA items, so a pawn shop will never have a suppressor for sale. Unless it's fake. Which it probably is, because it's in a pawnshop ffs.

I got a $160 bushnell red dot for like $90. Pretty good deal.

Also I bought my Saiga 7.62 before the import ban and I see them going for like $100-200 more than I paid for mine.

I also got some 50 round boxes of 9x18 Mak for $10 a box, the lowest I've ever seen. And the P-64 I bought for $200, and it looks great and it is in perfect working order. Again, the best price I've seen for a P-64 recently, and it's in top condition.

That's like normal price for 100 round boxes or even a little higher, unless it's match grade ammo. The last time I bought .22lr was during the ammo shortage and 50 round boxes were just barely over $5, I got a case of 10 550 bricks through cmp for $185 at the time and haven't shot through it yet.

I heard the US Defense secretary say that Israel is the cornerstone of US security policy in the Middle East. This got me thinking about changinf this, hypothetically of course.

>The US gives $3.8 billlion in military aid a year.
>Israel did not assist in the Afghanistan campaign.
>Conapiritards postulate that Israel indermines US security interests constantly
>inb4 the US is controlled by Jews and ZOG.

I thought why not give $3.8 billion to Greece instead of Israel we can actually base operations from there. We know they wont undermind us and they could use the money to keep up their military. I know the Hellenic AF is nowhere near as good as the IDF but with US advisors they could quickly pick up the slack. Especially with Russia and Ukraine feuding.

Really the best solution I see for something long term is the US giving full aid to a Kurdish state and raising it from the ground up. If you want longterm results give a longterm effort. I've been saying the US should be focusing on building Kurdistan as a recognized nation since before it was cool /hipster off because basically you have Iran who hate the US because we've been strangling their economy for the last decade and assassinating their not-retarded leaders, Turkey are backstabbers who we trust too much and Iraq is currently a barrel of monkeys.

The Kurds despite having no internationally recognized and stable State have a long history as a culture in the region and extensive small scale military experience. They may be operating that on a shoestring budget but with training and arms that could change quickly. The only problem would be them doing something like deciding to invade Turkish airspace with new aircraft and dropping bombs on Istanbul which would probably be tempting for some Kurds. That would be sticky diplomatically but AT LEAST IT WOULDNT BE AS BAD AS A CERTAIN GREATEST ALLY CARPET BOMBING FIVE COUNTRIES OVER THE SPAN OF SIX DAYS ~PREEMPTIVELY~ AND CALLING IT A VICTORY INSTEAD OF UNPROVOKED TERRORISM

The US needs to get out of the region all together, beween Canada and the US we have plenty of oil. No aid for anybody over there, we can send USSOCOM to fight the cartels with the Mexican Army. Between Saudi Arabia,Turkey, and Iran there is a balance of power in the Middle East. Israel has nukes and its rumored the Saudis do as well so there can be a detente in that region.

Optimally neutrality is best but getting out of the Middle East once you're in is such an imbroglio it is kind of like trying to escape a Jigsaw trap. You'll probably lose a limb or eyeball or something and might not make it. It's not called the Graveyard of Empires for nothing.

I know the military found alot of artifacts in Iraq and Afghanistan however the best way to find those things is not by launching an invasion bit by sending archaelogists
even the Nazis knew better than to invade Nepal and other areas where they sent their archaeologists and scientists.

You can conduct military operations under the guise of civilian activities.

Seriously? Ok this is economics 101 but if you control a resource directly, it's yours. You don't have to pay taxes on it, trade for it, buy it or whatever. Just defend it. If you don't have direct control over it then you have to acquire it either by force, trade, money, theft or some method and THEN defend it. Control of a resource is ownership of it.

Invasions, military operations, are more likely to destroy artifacts yes but expeditions under the auspices of science can be hijacked by the regional government for their own benefit. Military control of a region needs to be established first before archaeological benefits can go to military interests.

"Where can I locate anti-government militias online for recruitment? " you say ?

>online

online is the domain of the US government, notably the NSA/DHS, weather or not their ip tracing, spoofing and other spy-gasm methods that are used, is/are legal is a moot point; they have the tech, they have the sanctioned authority, therefore, just as water flows downhill, and day and night chase each other, so too does government gather information using any and all methods it has available to it.

>anti-government militias

anti government militias, be they american, or of other nationalities, typically tend to default to 'low/no tech is best tech', as a way to swiftly get off-grid.


.....Therefore, looking for anti-government militias, online, is like looking through endless amounts of forest and ocean, hoping to find a previously unknown space elevator to the moon.

you want to find a militia, your best bet is to hit the streets, talking to people who have friends of friends of friends..... even so, expect a cold welcome and much suspicions of you being an undercover cop, a psycho cowboy, a goofy snitch, or all of the above.

You can move to that commune that's built around a weapons factory where carrying an AR-15 is required by 'law'.

There's still tons of anti gov militias around, mainly Michigan, Idaho and plenty in Oregon. In fact every state prob has one. I was eating in an Oregon cafe once and these rednecks covered in duck dynasty head to toe camo stood up and said 'ITS ILLEGAL TO BURN THIS SYMBOL OF FASCISM' and literally lit their money on fire in the restaurant. (apparently it's not illegal to burn currency, they're just crazy hillbillies).

Well folks, finally got my first Moist Nugget. 1928, Izhevsk factory, matching serial number on the bayonet, and about 100+ rounds of WWII-era .308 ammo. Supposedly found in an arsenal in Ukraine in the mid-90's but that's sheer hearsay. Anyway, great stuff all around for such a cheap and common little bolt action.

My only questions:
1) Best butt cushion so I don't get my shoulder bruised or dislocated?

2) Could such a weapon be used for home defense? I mean surely a .308 will kill an intruder, but something tells me it''ll blow away the bad guy, the wall behind him, the wall of my neighbor's apartment, and possibly my neighbor. Something tells me it'd be a terrible method of self-defense.

3) Is it true it's still being used in combat, and if so, why considering modern warfare now mainly consists of assault rifles and submachine guns? I mean don't get me wrong it's a nice guy but it still seems oddly out-of-place (but, then again, the AK-47 was built in the 1940's and is still everywhere).... Supposedly in the past 15 years it's been found in Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria, Libya, and Chechnya.

4) Any nice cheap upgrades (scopes and whatnot) that anyone would recommend? Best products with which to clean it?

Gotta admit this is my first non-handgun (and I've only fired a shotgun once) so this is absolutely new to me.

Ok guys since I keep repeating "learn to cradle the rifle and you'll be fine" let me explain.

Bruises like this shouldn't happen even with a Mosin.

Here's a decent vid on finding natural point of aim, an important concept in shooting a rifle.

This one is mostly for shooting prone, the best way to make accurate shots at long range, with a Mosin you don't have a bipod so a sandbag, dirt heap, backpack (train with that if you like) or other elevated surface can substitute.

If you're still getting bruises with good form AND a buttpad do see a doctor about a potential health problem. You may be bruising too easily due to a nutrient deficiency. You might also have almost no muscle mass, the muscles in your chest, arm and shoulder should be able to repeatedly absorb the force of recoil.

You will know you've got form right when the recoil isn't a problem.

My opinion on body armor is it used to be really impractical and stupid but plates are getting lighter and stronger. The AR100 or whatever can stop a .50BMG. Of course, if you get hit by one you will still die because the force of impact will crush your ribcage completely but it shows progress and lighter rounds you can survive.

If you're a prepper or whatever, invest in some body armor. It's really not a bad idea. Plus shrapnel is the bigger problem and protecting against getting stray bits of things flying into your soft abdomen at 500mph is a good idea.

I seriously don't know where all these trolling faggots come in with "WHEN R U EVER GONA B SHOT LOL AMIRITE SO PEACEFUL" though. That's not an argument. This is a weapons board. Go masturbate your dead ego on /psy/.

I used to work for a security company and got mine for free through them along with some other stuff like a gas mask, Hazmat suit, etc. The only time I ever had to wear body armor was when I had to work security for a quinceanera. I still have it but obviously I wouldn't wear it unless I was going somewhere where I absolutely felt I needed to wear one.

im inclined to think that body armor, beyond a good helmet and maybe a center-of-mass small plate/platelet (front/back), is counterproductive because of 4 reasons


1 their loadout is formatted as mounted/mechanized infantry, and they are fully ready and able to operate from a truck, tank, or motorcycle platform.

2 most civilians are either already carrying way more than they would need in their loadouts, even at the optimum maximum gear spread.

3 most are merely collecting gear, and not intent on getting used to their gear until after shit has already hit the fan, and they have to depend on whatever meager stash they jammed into 'the closet bag'.

4 most (americans/) civilians are fat cowfucks whom are packing twice the weight of their bug out gear, in body fat (or conversely, are skinny stick fucks, and/or not getting used to the rigors of walking the talk of 'im so fuckin operator', beyond merely looking the part).

In the Army, we trained with helmets and an IBA w/ front and back SAPI plates. No other body armor was issued or trained with. Groin protectors, thigh protectors, etc. exist but are rarely issued or worn (I've personally never seen any soldier wearing these in my lifetime).

If you've been in the military and keep in good physical condition through weight training, cardio, and hiking, you should be fine to wear body armor in addition to a pack with good weight distribution with all the gear you'll need.

Gun>sword> nunchucks

nunchucks are inferior to swords because they require dynamic object rebound (ie, the offensive/ in-flight stick of the nunchucks, connected to a bendy rope or chain) to be taken into account during use. The sword, conversely, does not have any real bendy-ness like a chain-based weapon does.

likewise, guns are superior to swords (and nunchucks) because they are a projectile weapon, firing a small projectile which is typically moving magnitudes faster than human reaction times are capable of.

I want to purchase a full size semiauto battle rifle but I have no idea what to get. I want to keep my budget under $1,000, I want it to be rugged and fire a full powered round (7mm and up) but be accurate. I live in a state where I can still buy pretty much any semiautomatic and I don't have any problem field stripping a semiauto.

What would you get /nra/?

What's your favorite traditional Chinese weapon? For me, it has to be the guan dao. This thing can take out anyone in one swipe. The bottom spike allows for it to be used as a spear as well, and the middle portion is as good as a quarterstaff. Whether you're looking for slashing, piercing, or bludgeoning, this thing does the job.

Yah, they're all about purpose. See how this one hangs right at level with the blade's blood groove? When swung around or held down at the side it wipes blood off the blade and soaks into the tassels.

On traditional Chinese spears the design is even more obvious.

It's truly amazing how much thought went into the little things on medieval weapons, which is why historical accuracy in understanding how they worked is vital.

The spear is humankind's oldest and most effective hand to hand weapon, in principle nothing more than a pointy stick, it can be made twice as effective by putting tufts of grass or feathers near the pointy end.

China was not the only civilization to realize this though. Plenty of other civilizations, some seemingly far more primitive, also discovered this advantage. Most know what a Chinese spear looks like, those things the Shaolin monks are always fake stabbing themselves with, the red tassels on the end, yannkno

Here's 2 Maori Taiaha, war staves (the islands the Maori occupied had little usable metal because of the salty coastal climate, but also grew some of the toughest hardwoods in the world)

The Maori had some weird looking weapons too, oftentimes because they doubled as rowing paddles.
