Hey /k/ how come you don't practice your /k/ill skills on career criminals, gangsters, drug dealers and other biowaste currently flooding our streets? It literally takes only few hours to scout victim plan and insinuate "gang-on-gang" murder. Leave your phone/devices at home, dont leave any hair/dna footprints or tire prints, maybe get there using public transport wearing different clothing on the transit with glasses and covid mask, scout and avoid all cameras, have police radar on, use silenced .22 and again dont leave any dna or shells, replace the barrel and clean up everything. Literally the easiest murder/torture experience you can get to practice on, these scumbags literally lowest on the social status ladder way below prostitutes, no cops ever bother investigating gang-on-gang and justice system always keep blind eyes on stuff like that, worst case scenario you get finally caught because of some crime loving facebook karen you'll get released after claiming self-defense in front of jury. So are you practicing and clearing the streets yet /k ? By ignoring the problem we only help it grow, right ? Maybe its time we grow up and act, I guarantee 85% of here or our relatives were affected by criminals in one way or another, looks like they've already built Gothem but the Batmans are missing

Are Civilians Obsolete?
Stock_Photo_Buisnessman
So far, the Ukrainian War has shown that the "civilian" label doesn't really afford any real protections against occupying forces, and that the best way to prevent being victimized by war is through fighting back with guns. Civilians still get shelled and bombed and burglarized by armed invaders, and to try to do anything about it would strip their status, but what good is it doing any of them now?
Should all world governments drop the label and retrain their civilians into reservists like Switzerland? It'd be a better use than relying on some imaginary defensive charm handed out by the UN.

Gun for fiancée
88E45597-3100-475C-AD3D-A7EFDEDF68D2
My fiancée never shoots guns and has zero desire to. She will probably fire it once a year when I drag her out to the shooting property. I want to get her an idiot proof compact pistol that is fairly manageable. Would I be insane to buy her a beretta tomcat in 32acp? She hates racking slides and wants a tiny gun because womyns no dress around their gun. 32 is also much more controllable than 380 so I think it could be a good choice for someone who never shoots.

Resource on what these spec terminology mean
https://www.nite-walker.com/post/2019/11/21/specs-for-dummies-101
https://apollogearco.com/blogs/news/night-vision-specs-explained
https://gloomgroup.com/blogs/night-vision-info/night-vision-specifications-understanding-what-they-mean

You shouldn't be chasing for spec values but they do exist and if you wanted to know what "better spec" values are there's a way to know which unit is desirable over another.
Most retailers won't post this info as they build NVDs to order, first come first serve, and depending on their grading scale of high, mid, low tier it may differ from retailers. If a retailer offer a “ready to ship” fully built units they will list the spec values. Hand select is an option from retailers that will try to match to your spec requirements.

Some reputable retailers:

https://nvisionoptics.com/

https://steeleindustries.com/

SNR: signal to noise ratio, the amount of signal the tube can make compared to the noise
EBI: equivalent background information, how much false image appears in the screen through which the actual image has to show, sort of a noise floor of sorts
Halo: How big the circle of bloom is around lights
Photocathode Sensitivity: How sensitive the photocathode is
LP Resolution: Line pair res of the center of the image as measure against a standardized chart

If one spec is shit it negates the rest, if you have a halo of 2.0 it kinda fucks on an EBI of 0.20 if you want to do any kind of shooting and it's all a balance game

The numbers to meet or beat are
EBI under 1, preferably under 0.6 being great, 0.1 is gucci
Halo under 1, anything under 0.7 is awesome
SNR, over 25 anything over 30 is gucci
Photocathode, 1900+ is pretty great, 2500+ is stellar
Resolution of 64+ is good, 72+ is gucci

Why the fuck is 5.56 still so expensive but .308 is dirt cheap???
1660094663825658
I've been looking at ammo prices every now and then for like two years now and 5.56 is still super expensive. Lowest I can find (brass, non reman) is 40 something cents per round.
I don't own a .308, but I figured I'd check just to get an estimate of what I'd pay if I had bought an AR10 instead of 15, and I'm finding .308 brass, non reman for like 60-100 cents per round.

Antimatter-Bomb
I read a hypothesis that the reason we don't see aliens is that significantly advanced civilizations will develop antimatter weapons and will blow themselves up.

Is anti-matter really that much stronger than nukes?

I read that a thousand kilogram bomb would be like 220 gigatons of TNT, but are bombs normally even that heavy? And how much bigger than the Tsar Bomba would that even be?

Second, how do we make some? Could we pack it into bullets and have bullets that will blow up a tank?

Not exactly sure how a thread about German Naval performance in WWI was somehow 'off-topic' other than someone being historically illiterate, so I'm recreating the thread.

So again, did the Imperial German Navy punch above their weight? They were massively outclassed in technology and vastly outnumbered. There's no question that RN vessels were superior to German vessels, yet still managed to prevent any potential landings despite the combined RN and MN being being capable of utterly crushing the Kaiserliche Marine and forcing the issue at any time they wished.

>As in the Polish case, offset and technology transfer represent a central pillar in the negotiations between Egypt and Korea. In this regard, Lee Bong-geun, general manager of KAI’s Export Innovation Center, said: «KAI will promote joint production and joint marketing in Egypt.

>Egypt is pursuing an extensive program to modernize its Armed Forces, including the renewal of the Egyptian Air Force’s combat assets. Examples include the purchase of the MiG-29 M/M2 from Russia a few years ago (and the frustrated purchase of Su-35 fighters), the CH-47F Chinook from the USA or the 30 new Dassault Rafale from France, which will be added to the 24 aircraft already received.

>The Egyptian Air Force not only has a need to replace its fleet of 40 advanced Alpha Jet trainers, but also older fighters such as the Mirage 5E (modernized) and Mirage 2000.

>The FA-50 can fulfill both advanced training/LIFT and combat missions and, depending on the chosen configuration, can engage air targets beyond visual range, or attack ground and naval targets with modern weaponry, from safe distances, complementing well with more advanced assets such as the 4.5 generation fighters.

Egypt will co-produce 100 FA-50 with KAI making it the strongest air force in the region.

TL;DR What weapons work for evil forest creatures, and/or evil spirits?


Alright, I've had enough. I'm convinced there's some kind of evil creature/entity living innawoods around my house. I live in the middle of nowhere, with only one neighbor (a grumpy old lady, too dumb to be a witch or any of that shit). I've heard very odd noises at night, like a wailing sound, I've seen strange lights, heard constant, low-volume humming that would last all night, my dog gets freaked the fuck out sometimes. Tonight I walked outside right as a tree fell over in the woods. It didn't make a thud, but it made a loud creaking sound as if it were a massive oak that just fell. The few predatory creatures out here are small (coyote, fox, birds of prey, bobcats). The deer population travel through sometimes but for the most part they are weary of treading on the land. Others that have lived on the land (bought it from family and was rented to family or family friends before that) have told me about some creepy shit that has happened. I've decided it's time to cleanse the land and need to know how to arm myself for it.

Any uses to a featureless stock outside of being compliant with NYC and CA laws? Only one I could think of would be it gives similar feel to classic rifle stocks, but I've never handled one so I don't even know that for sure.

Why doesn't America use Penal Battalions? — Part 2
r608jv
Last week I made a thread on /k/ about creating penal battalions to thin out criminal populations and lessen the burden on tax payers. Lots of /k/ residents said was an absolutely ridiculous concept in the 21st century, that that such soldiers would be a greater resource sink than a benefit, that it would be madness to give military grade weapons to criminals.

Well, guess what Russia is doing.

Is the Italian army shit?
Tigerstripe_camo2
Has anyone here worked with/in the Italian armed forces? (NATO exercises, served, contractor, others)

How are they? Is it well organized/equipped/trained/motivated?

Because as an Italian external observer it seems to me that its mostly composed of southerners going there just to have a state job, in a country that is geopolitically passive and politically against military action, and is in fact involved in almost no operations, and aside from the navy and air force it seems that their equipment is old and becoming outdated vand that makes me refrain from joining since it seems to just be a waste of time, am I correct or wrong in my assessment?

Do MRAPs have any place on the battlefield? I think it gives a false sense of security. Just go back to light fast jeeps that can be mass produced.

Maybe stick to selling them to tactical police to intimidate civilians.

Is it true, that a larger case base equals less recoil, because the recoil is spread over a larger area or is this nonsense? Pic not relegated.

How much of a role did Chernobyl play in the failure of the Kiev Offensive
meanwhile at chernobyl
Well, it's safe to say that the shortcut to Kiev through the Exclusion Zone didn't exactly pan out as hoped, but I'm wondering how much of a material impact did it have on the offensive?

Last time I heard, a few hundred Russian troops who had previously camped out in the Red Forest came down with radiation sickness that was severe enough to warrant evacuation and a few had died. I'm gonna guess that's a severe underestimation though, seeing as Chernobyl was one of the main routes for the Invasion and thousands of Russian troops passed through there without protective equipment. This isn't even getting into how much of their gear from rations to tanks, is now dangerously radioactive or whether they're bothering to get rid of said contaminated equipment.

I'm going to guess that the role that Chernobyl played in the initial Russian failures in Ukraine is significantly understated.

What do you guys think though?

Exercising while carrying
CA72F1EB-EEC6-4DDF-AD0C-0DE0A6FEF097
Does anyone here exercise while conceal carrying? I jog several days a week and just recently got a belly band holster for my ruger LCP max. It’s not too bad and holds the gun pretty snug but I do feel like I get extra hot wearing it. I also sweat a lot in this heat and the holster and gun get fairly wet with some salt residue leftover after it dries, I try to wipe it off with a wet towel but I can’t imagine this being good for the gun long term. Is my gun inevitably going to start rusting from being soaked in salty sweat 3-5 days a week? I live in a safe area but mostly carry for pic related, sometimes I just feel like carrying pepper spray but having a pistol gives peace of mind

Gunsmithing
I've heard gunsmithing is bad as a career, but is it a decent source of side income?
I've got a job that gets me decent money working about 30 hours a week on mostly my own schedule. I'm looking for something else to do part-time on the side. Preferably something that is both enjoyable and can earn some extra cash. Gunsmithing certainly sounds like fun and it's a skillset I wouldn't mind developing. But is there any money in it at all?

Russia won't use nukes unless there's an enemy army sieging the gates of Moscow.
Looking at the rotten condition of the Russian army, it is very likely that its nuclear forces are in just as bad, if not worse shape. Moreover, the Russian conventional troops are those that at least took part in some military operations in recent years, so some minimal efficiency is preserved in them.

Meanwhile, nuclear forces have been sitting on their butts for decades and nothing is known about them except the fact that they exist on paper. It can be assumed that they are an even greater shitshow of corruption and incompetence. By escalating to nuclear option, Russia risks showing to the entire world its ultimate failure and incompetence. In the event that the Russian nuclear forces fail to act as they should, Russia will ultimately lose its position as a strong state. It won't be even a middle power anymore. All neighbors will know that it is time to revise the treaties and border agreements.

So Russia will be puffing and making threats as usual. But it will not risk nuclear escalation under any circumstances, unless it is actually in a situation where failure of nuclear option makes no difference.
