>polymer, gi mags, or hybrid mags

Which one do you prefer/think is the best? Ive only ran Magpul mags for the past 5 years, when i deployed and it was still authorized to use magazines outside of official supply chains and everybody bought pmags because they were "better" than GI's (possibly at keeping sand and dirt out) but i ended up being a little fobbit pog attached to Batallion HQ so i never really got to test it out. Recently switched buying gi as im worried about pmag longevity if there is ever a magazine ban. Ive never had any issues with any AR mags besides the D&H GI mag that comes with PSA rifles (double feeds)

/zpg/ Zapman General
Sexy-military-girl-and-gun_06
I did not develop the Zapman concept. Hotaru Maniac did. But it made me think of what I wanted for minimalism. Mostly salty cammies or comfy street clothes and a good chest rig. Then I thought about kit. And what would be Zapworthy. It's rooted in riflework so I will say you should have a Makarov or a G19. Both are closer in size than you think and are rugged. Capable of handling awful ammo. A Zapman must be able to use dirty ammo.

The Zapman original rifle was initially an AK. How then could we make a Zapman AR without going piston?
Food for thought. I dig this concept so much

so let me get this shit straight

You have a med-school dropout (smart guy) who ENLISTS into the military (I take that back), the most cozy/safe branch to say the least (Chair Force), who LARPs and gives reviews about combat kit to the adoration of the military masses

and this guy took it a step further to LARP as an actually Killed in Combat Special Forces Operator?

The Japanese spirit
Militarily speaking the Japanese were badass warriors that would have eaten you soitards for breakfast. Japanese soldiers didn't care about your stupid feelings or your safe space, they fucked the enemy up and that was based.

Colorado new gun laws
file
https://www.denverpost.com/2021/06/19/colorado-governor-three-gun-bills-boulder-shooting/

>What it does: This reverses a ban that keeps local governments (towns, cities and counties) from creating their own gun regulations. But local jurisdictions can only make ordinances that are stricter, not more lenient, than state law. Any regulations currently in place that are less restrictive are effectively overturned. A person can only face a criminal penalty for violating local laws if they knew about them or reasonably should have known. The new law also puts concealed-carry requirements back in the hands of the state so they’re consistent, but it does allow local governments to decide where those guns can be carried.

hope you guys don't plan on carrying a weapon in northern Colorado ever again. Nuke us already

Bismarck:

main guns guns 8x15 inch

range 16,430 km

Despite being heavier, bismarck loses in almost every category other than speed. And even in speed it has just 2 knots of advantage. Why the hell do people wank over this thing?

Hey faggots, got the 3d printer up and running again after being off calibration for a while and I'm looking for a new design to print. I made quite a few guns already including a vz61 lower I designed myself and I saw this one on defcad (inb4 lolbert fags) and was wondering if anyone here has made and fired one since it seems it's been around for a year.

/bag/ - How NOT to make ceramic armor edition - Armorchads get the fuck in here
AR500CeramicArmor
What's the worst possible way to make ceramic armor? I would propose:

- Buy dirt-cheap aluminum oxide ceramic strike-faces from Africa.
- Buy dirt-cheap fiberglass.
- Stick them together.
- Coat them in truck-bed liner
- Don't bother with strike-face protection
- Don't bother with NIJ certification
- Don't bother with any materials that were invented after 1950 or cost more than $10 per plate.

You're telling me that this is how the eternal grifters at AR500 make armor plates?! Oh nonono....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTUlC90JZlg

Shit, even motherfuckers who sell armor on eBay out of their garages do a better job than that.

Could it be any worse?

Acoustic Cyber Attack - Audio Weapon
natalie-lorraine-adams
Are you familiar with SurfingAttacks? Or even DolphinAttacks? With a mobile device emitting ultrasonic frequency into an area, as you sit in front of your television or computer screen which emits a large amount EM or low level radiation, an attack is able to affect pacemakers, access other electronics, affect speakers, which can emit non-linear sound frequencies and Decibel levels bringing a person to their knees. It can even shock a person. This new method of attack can work around objects and hit targets touch affected surfaces or sitting behind something because of the way the ultrasonic and signal attack saturates an area. It can even allow for an attacker to hit a person in another room and identify if and where movement appears. The world has changed and now guns are really irrelevant. You can't hear or even smell an ultrasonic / bluetooth harmonic frequency attack. What are your thoughts. I'm thinking that this new weapon may be the most affective weapon in the world thus far. Especially because everyone keeps their Bluetooth devices on and ready to connect to anything at the drop of a dime. What are your thoughts on this?

Historic sword restored to former glory, returned to shrine
sword
HITOYOSHI, Kumamoto Prefecture--A samurai sword forged in 1665 by a master craftsman once again boasts a shiny luster following extensive restoration work due to flooding that badly damaged a local shrine's collection of 77 historic blades.

Torrential rains last July on the main southern island of Kyushu left the Aoi-Asojinja shrine here inundated with water. All of the shrine buildings were water logged, resulting in its collection of swords becoming rusty.

A crowdfunding campaign by the shrine led to donations far exceeding its initial goals, allowing for restoration of more than one damaged sword.

A ceremony was held June 16 to mark the return of the 60-centimeter sword created by master Kyoto swordsmith Takai Echizen Kami Minamoto Nobuyoshi. The words “Aoi Daimyojin,” a past name of the shrine, are etched into the blade.

The sword was presented to Aoi-Asojinja over 350 years ago by retainers of the feudal lord of the Sagara clan on his behalf.

When the shrine began its crowdfunding campaign last August, it set an initial goal of raising 5 million yen ($45,000). But that figure was reached just 90 minutes or so after the campaign began. Over the course of a month, 35 million yen was donated to the shrine.

Swordsmith Shota Kimura and his family members began restoration work on the sword last October.

“I had never seen anything like it in all my time as a swordsmith,” Kimura recalled thinking when he first set eyes on the damaged blade. “It was so badly rusted.”

As he had no experience in polishing a sword that had been damaged by exposure to water, Kimura gingerly tried a number of techniques.

He said the most difficult part was removing the rust while not erasing the carved characters on the blade.

Restoring swords involves a number of steps, such as polishing and bringing out the luster of the blade.

Give a balkanfag advice
1623691914679
So in my country (Croatia) the gun laws are trash as they are in most balkan countries. I have a holding and carry permit for my glock 26 gen 5, which i barely got (had to lie through my teeth and i somehow got it, the carry permit that is). But now im looking to get a new handgun. I want a 1911 but the only two i can get here are a taurus 1911 and a sig sauer texas edition 1911. The taurus is like 700$ which is an afordable price for me but the sig one is around 1700$ in my country. I cant really import or buy from other balkan countries since our laws suck. My question is, is a taurus 1911 as bad as 90% of taurus guns? Any kommandos have experience with taurus 1911's?

Malaysia to Formally Launch Fighter Lead In Trainer-Light Combat Aircraft (FLIT/LCA) Tender
FA-50-Display-7
https://militaryleak.com/2021/06/22/malaysia-to-formally-launch-fighter-lead-in-trainer-light-combat-aircraft-tender/

>Malaysia has published the tender for the supply of eighteen Fighter Lead In Trainer-Light Combat Aircraft (FLIT/LCA) for the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) on June 22. Closing date for the tender is Sept. 22. The RMAF Capability Development Plan 2055 (CAP55), the service plans to procure 36 FLIT/LCA aircraft in two steps. The RMAF has asked the government for a budget for the acquisition of 18 aircraft in phase 1 through the submission of the new projects 2021 and another 18 aircraft in phase 2, under the 13th Malaysia Plan (RMK-13).

>For the Fighter Lead In Trainer-Light Combat Aircraft (FLIT/LCA) requirement, the types under consideration are the Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) FA-50 Fighting Eagle; the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Tejas; the Leonardo M-346; the Aero Vodochody L-39NG; the CAC L-15A/B; the CAC/PAC JF-17; the Saab Gripen; and the Yakovlev Yak-130. It is reported that the Leonardo M346 Master and the Yakolev YAK-130 Mitten have since been cut from the competition.

So which tiny fighter will be awarded for best tiny fighter? Apparently the front-runners are the FA-50 (best multi-role) and the JF-17 (best BVR) but that could be retards online. The Gripen should be the best-overall but the most expensive. The MiG-29 isn't completely out since Malaysia operated the Su-30MKM already. These will replace Malaysia's Hawk 108, 208 and MB-339s.

Bubba’s Pissin Hot Handloads but I’m Bubba
4422A6CD-25BD-4170-B9C8-A706459DAD66
There was no reloading thread and I didn’t want to put this in the milsurp general so here it is. I have at my disposal 8 .30-06 M2 AP projectiles. I do t have a .30-06 or a locked breech .308. I want to make some fun rounds and I think the best bet would be to load some hot as fuck 7.7 with the projectiles. From what I’ve read and heard a .308 bullet is big enough to stabilize in a .311 bore. And the Arisaka action is retardedly strong and over built. So I’m thinking black tip 7.7x58. Tell me why I’m retarded.
pic related, got these in a big bucket of .30-06 brass from a garage sale. The bullets are loaded into mixed headstamp unprimed brass. So the guy was making display rounds

is milsurp a meme? the only reason id buy military surplus was if it was priced cheaper than some brand spankin new tool/item. some random fucking shovel, knife, or ammo tin from WW2/vietnam isn't a historic artifact, i'm not trying to pay 1000% markup on old items of no significance

is there any way to buy milsurp at a reasonable price? should i just stick to buying new consumer-grade items? i can't imagine i'd find any real milsurp at a good deal except maybe for some obscure estate sale or maybe a very very lucky find at a thrift shop.

My first gun. Cz75 p-01
16244269122926124741242652768073
I got this gun on gut instinct after reading about the intense testing it went thru to get nato approved.
Initially the guy at the gun shop didn't think he had one but I saw one hiding on the bottom shelf, asked for the price and immediately took it home (after paying and fbi check)
I like it because it is compact (for concealed carry) relatively light ( 28 oz with aluminum frame) all metal, and comfortable.
Ultimately I feel this is one of the best pistols out there. The other cz variants aren't as refined. I don't like glocks because they are plastic, straight up. Feel free to call me a hater. Other pistols don't match up to the reliability since this handgun has an average of 2000 MRBF
It shoots smooth, easy to release the slide with your thumb comfortably, and looks cool.
Pic related. The fanny pack I use is from a usa made Kelly falcon 4000 which I got from a pararescueman and it is the best pack I've ever used.
Cons: trigger reset is longer than most but negligible
Sights are apparently bad to a lot of people but I'm not a pussy so I just deal with it.

Bo Staff for Striking
Screenshot_20210623-165253_Gallery
Am I doing something wrong? I just want a 6' staff that I can practice hitting shit with instead of just spinning and and doing gymnastic tricks.

I bought a bamboo one and that one cracked within 2 weeks when I struck some grass. I ordered a thicker red oak one and warmed it up on the grass, then struck the my punching bag 3x and then it just fucking shatters. I went back and tried the bamboo on the bag and it lasted like 10 strikes before cracking again, probably because it's more flexible.

Am I buying shitty bo staffs, or should I be looking got something else? I seriously just want a 6' stick I can whack a bag with without worrying about wasting my money.

Dissecting retarded self-defense "weapons"
Screenshot_20210621-161528_YouTube
I find the cat keychain the most interesting. The loops look uncomfortably large to hold, for one. The spikes are at way too wide an angle, forming more of a triangle and massively increasing surface area. Compounded with woman strength and the already short length, they'd be about impossible to reach a vital organ with. And how would you comfortably carry this in a way where you could quickly get it seated in your palm?

Russian military publishes details of border incident at Crimean Cape Fiolent

At 11:52 a.m. the British destroyer Defender crossed the Russian border and entered the territorial sea at Cape Fiolent for 3 km. He was warned about the use of weapons in the event of a border violation, but did not react.

At 12.06 and 12.08 a Russian border patrol ship carried out warning fire.

At 12:19 pm, the Russian Su-24M aircraft performed precautionary bombing (4 OFAB-250) along the course of the British destroyer.

At 12.23 the Defender left the Russian waters.

Last thread >>49520296 is full, here’s a new one

Forces of the unknown have caused our world to merge/combine with a typical (or not-so-typical) fantasy world. Old world governments have managed to hold on to major urban and suburban areas, but rural areas range from fragile peace to complete chaos. People and towns from either side suddenly find themselves in a new realm, and portals going between both worlds are scattered throughout the lands.

The old worlds are gone, and two new worlds are in their place. Our side of a SHTF hellhole, and the other side of a untouched land of endless fantastical possibility. Be a STALKER, adventurer, hero, or bandit. The new world is yours.
This is fan/k/sia, and you're here forever.

I just got done reading this book and it seems interesting how former Navy Seals and many other special forces had little tactical knowledge or basic concepts about what it takes to win a war outside of basically shooting a gun. Black Water literally resorted to outsourcing to people who literally had no experience instead, so it kind of makes me wonder what good a former special forces warrior is if all he knows how to do is hold a gun and follow orders?

Designing Firearms?
homemade
Wanting to get into recreational firearms design and manufacturing, what's the best place to start? I've checked out people on YT like AK Custom, ECCO Machine, and some others but I'd really like some books or people to see that teach how firearms work in depth? Anyone can look at a gun and say how it works, but I mean really detailed things like dealing with heat treatment, headspace, what materials to use, the more technical side of things. It's easy to nigger rig a .22 pipe pistol but I'd like to do more sophisticated things, just without blowing my hands off. Any resources you have for me or things I should try? Professor Parabellum is already on my pc.

The samuri
ef215949a3ad02ee28a014ea2cb25f81
There are people here who seriously think that the samuri warrior elite of feudal japan would have been even remotely capable of successfully fighting european armies.
How will a little asian with a smaller frame and weaker, uninmpressive body, bamboow and wood armor, flimsy sword, fight against a man who was trained at arms since birth, of much more imposing size and greater strenght, clad in plate armour?.
Let's be honest, there is a reason why they only killed each other, because they were outmatched everywhere else in the world.

Look at this pic, the guy has no shoes, all it takes for a knight to best the jap is step on his feet with armoured sabatons and the chinaman is out of the fight with every footbone shattered.

Would such a statement be accurate? Is it far more easier to deliver a nuclear payload than defend agaisnt it, thus the only proper response is to be able to nuke more of them than get nuked yourself?

Primitive Weaponry

Hi /k/, lately I have been very interested in primitive technology, and in particular primitive weaponry. I have been trying to make primitive knives, hammers, spears, etc (see pic related) but cannot for the life of me figure out how to make a primitive bow. Is it based more on the bendibility (not sure if that’s a word) of the wood, or the elasticity of the cordage?
