This antique website has "untouched"(maybe missing minor parts "like screws..." theyve been in storage for 100+ years covered in grease). Some reviews say they can be restored to firing condition. They have "cleaned and complete" ones for more that they say can be fired.

Should i get one? Ive been high watching the zulu movies and videos on youtube of the martini henry and that shell ejecting looks so satisfying.

That's still around $75 a box for empty brass, and still about $100 for the reload dies, and a 577 cal lead die.

But here is the cheapest option. You can get away with a 58 cal civil war minniball lead die, and a die to neck down 24 gauge brass shotgun shells which are like $30 as the empty brass and come in packs of 25 verses 20. That is what I do.

Even a 4 year old can take the kick of a 410 without feeling it. Pheasant hunting is so popular here most kids get started on 410s by about the age of 5-6. I was 12 when when I got my 12 gauge, only issue I had with it was that it got heavy as fuck after walking 10 miles of brush.

Beta blockers would be fine, all they're gonna really do is steady your hands. If you're nervous as fuck, you'll still be nervous, but your hands will remain steady and your heart rate will remain calm. Basically it'll lower/remove your physical anxiety response.

Propranolol (a beta blocker) is banned in olympic shooting for this reason. It makes your hands and fingers feel very steady. Was kinda freaky the first day I was on it, but I'm also a piano player so that was my first exposure to the precision-enhancing effects.

I wasn't sure whether to post this here or on /other/. Apparently crazy motherfuckers used to eat, drink, or suck on cordite back when it was used.

"About three cartridges added to half a pint of water or tea
boiled down to about a gill, when it is of the consistency of thick
molasses or glycerine, and sipped occasionally, makes one feel
like a prince. Taken in this form, cordite makes me want to
tell all my troubles and all I know to any listener. It gradually
produces sleep, the awakening being accompanied by the usual
headache, but the feeling is not quite so bad as I would have felt
had I drunk beer WIth it.
"If beer, say a few pints, is drunk in conjunction with the
above solution, it very shortly makes me as mad as a man oon get ,
without becoming absolutely a raving lunatic. It was while in
this condition that I went over to the station-master at Platrand,
four miles away, dressed in my underclothes and a blanket, and
without boots at midnight, woke him up, and told him if he
would give me a bed for the night I would work his telegraph
instruments for him all day long. I am not fully cognisant of
what I do while in this state, but generally find out about it next
day, sometimes to my great surprise, as it seems hard to believe
some of the antics which I am told I have performed; but the
knowledge of them does not worry me next day, as I feel too bad.
Cordite, no matter how taken or in what form, always gives me
the most terrible nightmares, in fact, everything seems to be in a
chaotic state. As long as a man has cordite in his system he is
more or less insane, although he may appear sane enough. My
eyes feel as if they were jumping from their sockets, and objects
have a dim appearance as long as the headache lasts."

So, uhhh... Anybody try it?

Reading William Gibson's "Zero History".

A large plot point is the civilian market for tactical gear, he actually drops the terms "operators", "mall ninjas", and "gear queers", and one of the villains is a fashion designer with special forces pretensions, who acts like a spy in a movie, and is after a coveted military contract to design uniforms for the US.

The protagonists' employer, Hubertus Bigend, a sort of meme and trope savvy Lex Luthor type, mentions a sort of psychosis endemic to the special forces, that they're promised that their training will qualify them to do anything, and they end up believing it, so they become sort of self-hypnotised con artists who believe their own pitch, and you end up with unqualified, delusional ex-soldiers teaching anti-terrorist and interrogation techniques to third world police and militaries.

So, read anything topical lately?

Gibson knows that all the action is done by intelligence operatives these days, but he knows Tom Clancy has got a lock on that genre. Any commentary by him is likely to be ignored for more "america, fuck yeah" patriotic bullshit.

Gibson can be interesting to read when hes making observations, but his plots are slow as molasses and are too realistic to be entertaining, he should just punch it up a little bit and add a bit of cinematic license to his plots.

I get what you mean. At various points I dropped 'Neuromancer'. Only recently did I read through it fully and even then it gets so vague I nearly drop it, but somehow, Gibson manages to throw in a single sentence or event that pricks my nipples and keeps me interested.
I'm usually used to figuring out stuff through subtext and lore. I love Philip K. Dick novels for example, but I can't say much in defense of Gibson, given that I only read two of his works: 'Neuromancer' and 'Pattern Recognition' (the first book in a trilogy before 'Spook Country' and 'Zero History', iirc).
I really liked 'Pattern Recog'. It was more thematically focused with its Baudrillard-esque themes (with clothing described as Japanese knockoffs of WWIII bomber jackets, but with intentionally dropped stitches so detailed they transcend being a 'simulation'). It's basically about a media-design/ mystic meme consultant following an ARG online.

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.

Pakistan's ISI or other rogue elements amongst the Pakistani elites have harboured and funded the Taliban and other mujahideen for decades.

There are several uses for the Taliban, historical and contemporary:
  • keeping the region unstable to prevent the rise of Afghanistan as a regional power
  • fighting the soviet army to prevent the enlargement of the Soviet sphere of influence
  • nurturing a network of militant Muslim groups that can destabilise Kashmir, the border region within Pakistan's main rival, India.
  • a source of profit from narcotics and other criminal activity.

In other words, Pakistan shelters the Taliban from the US.

Is there a firearms company more undeserving of praise then these fuckers?

>Astronomically priced guns even when almost every other competitor offers their guns with more modern features AND at a better price point
>Refuse or stopped importing their actually unique firearms
>Stock a pitiful (Or none at all) amount of spare parts
>Customer service that takes eons to get ahold of or anything fixed or back from them
>Newest products are just the same old shit with slightly adjusted aethstetics (Even if there were new products it's not like they would offer them to the civilian market anyways ERGO: all the new scart accessories.)

Seriously I have a FN gun that I consider my favorite but even I can see how fucking shitty they are, why do people in the industry always CONSTANTLY suck them off for literally every single thing they do, no other company gets as much praise as these fuckers.

It's easier to get companies to send you free guns for your youtube channel when you praise them.

People watch the youtube videos that are "reviewing" FN guns and speak on the internet with the certainty of an owner even if they've never touched a gun in their life.

Also, it sounds like a shorthand for fuckin'. That has to have something to do with it too.

If it's your gramps old gun it shouldn't be a money thing. If you like it, it should be priceless to you. I couldn't fathom selling any of the family guns that have been passed down to me. Heirlooms are really neat things and connect generations.
