gas piston
6.8 or 6.5? whatever's better
and here's the weird one; it's pretty extreme
the barrel has to be able to deflect 1 moa+ and still fire a bullet

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.

Read The Prince by Machieavelli and the problem will quickly become apparent. The middle east is the type of regionbans problem that can only be conquered one way. Colonization. If we remove sufficient numbers of radicalized ( or even just religious) males from the population and import Americans we can culturally shift these regions over time to the point where they could become provinces instead of mere colonies. Think Alexander the Great hellenizing places or when we colonized Puerto Rico and Cuba. This is the only viable long term solution to not only Bring Freedom as we have promised but to ensure that the peoples of the middle east are raised out of the shothole that is their lives in the long run. Plus they will start making us money instead of being a total drain! Now that's sustainable.

Everything you have ever held, experienced, and known will die and be forgotten to the ages. Earth will die and never be remembered. Cherish this fact, it is the only truth there is. Don't get caught in their games, get yours and fuck everyone else.

A young corporal jumps into an icy blast from a douglas DC-3 having been called upon in the name of righteousness. Unfortunately, his reserve chute malfunctions causing the suspension lines to wrap around his arms, legs, neck, and the connectors of which to crack his skull. The field medics having been happy that a chute hasn't failed for some weeks, much to their disdain, see the young man crash to the ground in a fountain of blood with their comment to follow, "what a hell of a way to die!"

but because of the republicans or white people or Jesse Jackson or whatever guess what: it turns out that it was all of a waste for nothing! because George HW Bush or George W Bush or Lyndon Johnson or Vietnam, everyone who has ever died has died as a waste for nothing.

What a happy thought that one is, what a nice world to live in! Let me know when world war 3 starts, i'll be in a broom closet crying for it. There's a lot of power in storytelling. People like that other guy can get fucked.

so in light of the rioting seriously considering buying babby's first gun, but not sure where to start. for context i live in Washington state, in an apartment.

1) what do i get?

Would like to keep it under or around $500 before taxes/fees. Thinking handgun (Glock?) or shotgun. Handgun seems like the more obvious choice being in a tiny apt, but it also seems generally more expensive and legally more of a pain in the ass (waiting period, other state laws if I move, etc.). Shotguns seem cheaper and easier to acquire but where do i put the damn thing after including safe storage? Also seems like it'd be more cumbersome to pull out/get ready in an emergency. Is buying used okay?

2) Where and how do I get it?

I mean obviously i could just walk down to a gun store, but is that really the best way? Are there online options or other venues that I should be considering? Anything to watch out for regarding bad deals? And if going the in-store route, anything to prepare aside from ID?

Also hopefully gun store clerks aren't gonna be condescending to gun noobs. Also also considering a quick training session or two that they all seem to offer.

So it seems to me that one of the easiest and most effective way to deploy nuclear weapons would be not with a missile that shoots into space before coming back down halfway across the world, but to simply smuggle your nuclear weapons into enemy territory and have them waiting there ready to set off. Now that missile defense is becoming a reality, this is almost a necessity, and the vast amount of international trade all countries do with each other at this point and the small size of nuclear warheads would make it very easy. With this tactic you could even do a preemptive nuclear strike that would destroy most of your opponents nuclear weapons before they even get a chance to fire them assuming you know where most of them are. Then you just have to worry about the ones on subs or in locations you couldn't discover or couldn't smuggle a nuke into. With decent missile defense it would be possible to completely win a nuclear war taking very little casualties using these tactics.

Do you think there are hidden nukes already deployed around the major cities of the world in nuclear enabled countries that were smuggled there by hostile forces? If there are, obviously it would be difficult to guard them well, secrecy would be your only safeguard against them being stolen. But what if that fails? What if some hacker finds the location? It could lead to terrorists getting their hands on nukes.

Missile defense has been a reality for a few years. The procedure is to send off 4 Patriots with an interception success rate of about 50%. 4 of them bump the odds up to 97%. I think we have about 200 of them or some number like that, so that would cover a rogue state but not a place like Russia. They work as kind of like a shotgun where they blow up into the path of the target.

Places like Russia have a huge investment in making sure their first strike is successful. Currently the idea is to use rocket-launched gliders to carry the warhead at a low altitude and steer around missile defenses. There is also a huge initiative for nuclear powered cruise missiles for the same purpose. Supposedly we had a proof of concept nuclear propulsion rocket engine mockup in the 1970's, but the initiative was scrapped entirely, and the scrapping was unfortunate because the 1970's Mars missions really seemed like the best thing for people to work on.

Present technology lazers could provide a 100% interception rate and would be an extremely effective shield, but I think it might be a bit of a glass ball for other countries to bust. You could probably put it in geosync orbit over the US. Space treaties currently make the concept illegal, and every Chinese country would be butthurt.

As far as the thread subject, I think customs does a pretty good job making sure NK can't import anything. I guess they could place the container in a Chinese port and say, "this is Chinese import lol," but it sounds difficult. They could dock a fishing boat the same way the Columbians do, but they have a longer voyage and would need a spy network. It would be a huge pain in the ass and if they got caught then... well, they would have nothing to lose. Sanctions are a foreign policy nightmare, but that's a load of opinion bias.

Best idea is to avoid the issue. The current treaties being scrapped is looking kind of bad.

Hi. I recently inherited a family heirloom of sorts, in the form of a small pistol.

My question is regarding the ammunition - The rounds are visibly quite old / tarnished. I'm assuming this may make the ammunition unreliable and/or unsafe to use?

Not a firearm person, obviously. But later on I do plan on reading up a bit on the pistol to learn how to properly clean it, etc. I'm a grown man, I'm not fucking around with the weapon, I'm only curious.

It's a .25 round, if that matters. The handgun uses a magazine.

Thank you for your time.

It's likely 25 acp OP. It's a small pocket pistol caliber that doesn't have much power, but it would still fuck up your day if you got shot by it. It's not used much any more and is common in old pawn shop guns like I'm sure you were gifted.

If you want to know more about pocket pistol calibers check out the lucky Gunner YouTube series on them. It's a pretty comprehensive look at what a lot of people consider outdated and underpowered guns.

I wouldnt buy it here on the darknet because i dont want to lose all my money.
I would buy it in the balkans, an unregistered pistol with ammunition. My family is from there so i speak some serbian but i dont have contact to people who would sell a gun to me.
Found some people on facebook who sell their guns but only to people who own a permission. Asked them if they would accept the offer if i pay instead of 300 euro 1500 euro. Thats alot of money for balkan people but they said they cant.
So where do i get my 9mm pistol with ammunition?

Except in similar barrel lengths .357 Sig is still always going to outperform 9mm. Even the hottest +p+ 9mm won't beat out a lot of .357 Sig self-defense loads. 10mm is a joke. Just use 357 Magnum. The only people that like 10mm are memelords. .357 Sig has the advantage of beating 40 in every metric that matters, has the most reliability of any handgun round due to being bottlenecked, and well, the list is too long for me to post everything good about it.

>B. There is not a substantial tax on cigarettes and alcohol. And especially not on junk food and the like.

Sin taxes on guns and ammo is therefor objectively wrong and misguided. Additionally I would like to add the following: take your classist rich boys ideology of making guns only legal for filthy wealthy individuals and blow it out your fuckin ass faggot. There is no reason why guns should cost thousands of dollars when the vast majority of them cost maybe 50 dollars in raw materials and 200-300 in machining and logistics time. Fascist.

I have some questions and I'm sorry if they're dumb. This stuff is so far out of my knowledge base it's ridiculous.

I've been on a CA 5250 hold (multiple, actually) for harm to self and as a result I'm not allowed to possess firearms. I live in a house with roommates. We're generally very supportive of each other. My roommates are considering getting a gun because our neighborhood is insane and several of us, myself included, are physically disabled.

Would something bad happen legally having a gun in the house if I'm not supposed to own one, and if so, what?

"No person who has been adjudicated by a court of any state to be a danger to others as a result of a mental disorder or mental illness shall purchase or receive, or attempt to purchase or receive, or have in his or her possession, custody, or control a firearm..."

Possessions, custody, or control sounds a lot like having any access to it is a problem.

Given that you're in Cali and given how cops are; no. And even so, it is still federally illegal if you have access to it in any way. Just like if you have a gun in a car, and a felon is in that car with you, and it isn't on your person or locked away, he is in violation of the law and possibly the driver and owner of the car depending on the arresting officer, the DA policy, the local politics, and the local laws etc.

I suppose you could argue that if you share a house or flat or whatever and they keep it locked in a safe or strictly on their person that you'd be okay but you're taking a risk. Especially in California and today's political climate.


It is a risk and you should probably speak to an attorney but in all likelihood, someone will get in trouble and it will probably be your and whoever is the owner of the firearm.

Thank you both for responding to this.

Not that anyone was dying for the gripping conclusion of this story, but I sat down with roommate and talked to her about this and the potential legal risk (I would have done it anyway) and she was very nice and understanding and we're not getting a gun. I think she thinks I would shoot myself in the face and that's honestly probably true. And even if not, if we get in trouble I'm black so I'm likely not getting off lightly and she says she'd feel awful. I feel guilty. The end

This is quite possibly one of the most dissapointing shot shows to date.

Im just glad Kalashnikov USA is finally releasing a rifle. For the longest time all they had were the AK looking shotguns. They're just not my thing.

I mean, what do you want man? Small arms are really, really good. There's little headroom for revolutionary improvement.

Go caseless or plastic ammo and you get head buildup.
Go DEW and you get super heavy batteries.
Go flechette and you get a meme gun.

There's no innovation because we're going to need fundamental advances in materials science to get any big shifts in the state of the art for guns.

The only promising stuff is patents expiring and opening competition, like EOTech's holographic sight patents expiring, resulting in cheaper and better holos like the UH-1 and more to come. But that's still basically just iterative improvements and lower costs.

The only other promising area is digital integration, but that's at least 10 years from the commercial sector and isn't going to take off quickly unless there's unexpected military adoption. State of the art there with compute units and AR displays is incredibly promising for consumer electronics in the next 5 years, but not yet small or reliable enough for firearms, and fuck all work has been done to develop useful software for use with firearms.

I feel like you have unrealistic expectations for what innovation should look like in a mature and competitive industry.
