If you want to talk about things only tangentially related to firearms, then welcome to 100 Rads. If you want to trade, talk, get a mission or find out the latest news, this is the place to go. If your posts in an existing thread are starting to seriously derail the main subject, they might be moved here.

apparently retailers are getting ready for chaos. >buying card at Hallmark >overhear cashiers freaking out because corporate pushed a bulletin featuring store lockdown procedures for "civil unrest" I get Walmart moving their Fudd ammo to the cage, but a fucking greeting card store issuing riot guidance doesn't bode well.
>>8111 Between Covid rules, whatever election results come out, and even just the baseline riot activity already this year, I wonder what kind of mess Black Friday will be next month.
>>8112 >implying Black Friday won't come early this year
>>8112 >Black Friday they're fucked if they allow retards to bum rush the stores like in years past. rootless social engineers have already implanted the idea that looting is a legit form of protest. >throws up a "black power" fist while shoving looted tv's into a car. >he's fighting systemic racism! so brave! If I was the big dick at a retailer, I'd just close the storefronts to the public and do online orders only for the sale. They could have the workers do ship from store to move out whatever holiday inventory they have at the brick and mortar locations (less for the looters whenever they do open up again).
>>8112 Black Friday is a huge percentage of sales for retailers. If it gets cancelled expect rioting in the streets, and massive layoffs.

It's not a retreat, we're attacking new territory! HOTPOCKET UPDATE Per user consensus we are going to be staying here for the long haul. My e-mail is powerwordN@cock.li. If you would like to moderate for the board, please send an e-mail to me with your time zones and either a timestamped image of a firearm you own or (if you live in some derivative of yurop) anything that can be improvised as a weapon. Make sure there isn't EXIF data or any identifying marks on the weapon such as serial numbers, fingerprints in reflection, yourself, etc. Happenings (civil unrest, mass shooting, etc) generally do not merit a thread on /k/. This is not intended to be a board for discussing current events. Unless you have some specific reason for why a current event needs to go on /k/, please post your thread somewhere else. I've been very lax on enforcing this and the result has been a drop in the board's quality. There are other boards on the webring more suitable for "race war discussion" and I'd recommend you go there instead. Rules are viewable in the post box, but I will repost them here for your convenience: 1 : Follow the global rules. 2 : Do not spam content or dump porn. 3 : Spoiler gore or NSFW content. 4 : Do not honeypot streloks into committing crime. 5 : Keep threads on topic; if the conversation's too off track, then make a new thread. 6 :DO NOT POST PERSONAL, IDENTIFYING DATA ABOUT YOURSELF WITHOUT PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY.

>>8061 There would really be no point to general purpose "handymen" on a ship. DC parties are already comprised of anyone onboard the ship and members of the ship's DC department, who you can think of as DC specialist and maintainers of the ship's DC systems. It's already a shared task. Having people on board who are generally skilled would just be a drain on the multitude jobs that need specialist. And, as someone else already mentioned, that solution is really just adding more people, which every branch is struggling to do.
>>8060 I was just suggesting that Marines haven't been doing the job, not that they couldn't. Putting Marines into play will positively augment the number of people who are able to do DC, although I'm not sure it will be a suitable solution.
>>8063 Obviously larger and longer than the 6x3. But at that point, you're already talking about a ship that's permanently at sea, so I don't really see what difference increasing a ~2,600ft long ship to be a ~3500ft long ship would make
>>8106 >a ship that is about 1km long Fantastic.

QTDDTOT-Axe Repair Edition Strelok 10/08/2020 (Thu) 05:07:21 No.7036 [Reply] [Last]
Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread I'll start. I decided recently to fix up this old axe I found a few years ago. I got some rust converter to do the job but then after I took a closer look I realized that it has a big crack all the way through on the back of the eye. How do I fix this shit? Can I just heat it up and weld it back together blacksmith style?

>>8002 Ebay is your friend, type in "magazine pouch" and look around. Just don't buy tacticool chinkshit, and you should be fine.
>>8020 How can you tell what's Chinese or not.
Am I able to nigger-rig a Chinese spike onto a Romanian AK, and if so how much work is involved. I'm thinking about an autistic Khyber abomination type ak with a triangle side folder, cheese grater handguard, and chinese spike. The side folder is the easy part. What would I need to do to get a spike on there? Will it be simply changing out the lower handguard, gas block, and FSB, or do I need a different barrel to boot? Quick concept edit to show what I am going for.
>>8098 I think the chinese AK bayonets all fit on an AK EXCEPT the type 81 bayonet, which is for commercial shit, not angry chinaman in vietnam shit. QBZ 95 bayonet is a shitty M9 clone. The commercial chink ones are bad so avoid those as well the weird olive green chink AKM bayonet. Type 56 might not fit since its a special spiked design, theres a clamp on, pinned on, and quick detach version.
>>8098 >Will it be simply changing out the lower handguard, gas block, and FSB, or do I need a different barrel to boot? That I don't know, but can't you take a look at this if you have access to all those parts? Although it sounds like you'd be better off adding the new stock and rails to a Type 59.

What should be the strategy for militaries that don't have big budgets to spend?

By "at heights" I mean either so low to the ground everyone can take pot shots at them, or so high in the air that you need special subsystems that only first world countries can reasonably afford if it goes down for any reason. Figured I should specify. Also I wouldn't necessarily downplay cheaper consumer-grade drones. You could have Amazon-sized drones carrying payloads to take out small recon groups or high value targets at about the same price as to train and outfit 2-4 soldiers and the even cheaper models are still useful for recon since activating jammers for every consumer drone (or shooting it down) is basically giving away your position/shooting yourself in the foot.
I should add that you can do the same thing with rovers on the ground for about $400 (the most expensive parts being the wheels and RC helicopter camera) with effective ranges out to 100 meters that you could equip with payloads as well. Sorry for triple posting.
>>8067 >gyroscopes I have no idea what you mean. If you could spoon feed me a little more so I can look into this, I would be grateful. As far as signal jamming goes, I have personally seen commercial drones after losing signal (not jammed) 'Return to Base' and another that Auto landed. I have heard I have heard of jammers making drones fall out the sky but I don't know enough to say that it is result of 'specialized jammers' or less sophisticated drones. >>8067 >At extreme low and high attitudes Again, I am new to the subject so I don't know what benefit one would gain at operating at low attitudes expect maybe avoiding radar. And I don't know the downsides of operating high attitude. I would assume you mean outside SAM or AA gun range. But that would mean you have bigger of problems of being targeted by the government. If Rhodesia is any measure, Blacks cannot operate or maintain their MANPADS correctly to shoot down helos with basic jerry-rigged countermeasures (that being a new paint job and exhaust redirection.) although that was 50 years ago. As far as small arms go, I do not think anyone would be able to shoot down a drone with any small arm besides a shotgun once it gets further up.
>>8074 >I have no idea what you mean. If you could spoon feed me a little more so I can look into this, I would be grateful. It's a tool that measures orientation and angular velocity. Long story short it's the thing inside your plane or tank cannon or missile that allows it to aim/maintain track of where it's at, at all times. More importantly higher-spec/more accurate (typically fiberoptic) gyroscopes allow you to use angular velocity with a little integration (the kind that can be done at the hardware electrical level, not even requiring software/smart electronics or even electronics at all if you're willing to sacrifice some precision) to measure exactly where you are (allegedly) in the air. Your phone even has one if you can rotate the screen, albeit a pretty shitty one. Basically it's the thing that allows you to navigate even if GPS and all other forms of communication are down, and typically it's the device used to self-correct in conjunction with GPS or whatever communicative system it happens to use. In things like missiles they're roughly 10% of the cost (the ones in a $115,000 50kg air-to-ground missile cost between $10,000-$30,000) since you don't want your missile to hit the wrong target if the enemy is using any sort of jamming technology (also because conventional navigational communications are impractical at those speeds). >I have heard of jammers making drones fall out the sky but I don't know enough to say that it is result of 'specialized jammers' or less sophisticated drones. They shouldn't do that unless it's either a crappy consumer-grade drone that's designed to just auto-land when it loses signal (since generally the goal of consumer-grade drones is to preserve them if signal is lost). If they just fall out of the sky, that's either shitty computing that shuts the drone off when it loses signal or an electrical subsystem attack (basically an EMP). >Again, I am new to the subject so I don't know what benefit one would gain at operating at low attitudes expect maybe avoiding radar. Wind-speeds at operating heights of "helicopter" style drones are typically much, much faster than wind-speeds on the ground. Fixed-wing drones have a very hard time dealing with those windspeeds without either severe loss of functionality or beefy (price-wise) upgrades that make them far too expensive to use at any height except ultra-high altitudes using ultralight designs. The main benefit of a fixed-wing drone is that because there's fewer moving parts and they rely on wind pressure/air currents to stay afloat, they tend to be very, very stabilized compared to a heli-drone. This makes them capable of acting as a fixed point to detect abnormal movement in a sea of movement (such as out over choppy waters where they're good for spotting submarines below the water's surface by interpreting differences in surface waves, or in crowded cities when looking for subtle signs of vehicles/firearms being used), but being fixed structures, they are less maneuverable when it comes to evading direct fire, much less so than an actual helicopter or fixed-wing plane. They can be useful at low altitudes if used en-masse, but doing so is expensive compared to using helicopter-style drones that might be heavier but are significantly cheaper due to not needing specialized parts to maintain navigation, altitude, or maneuverability. The only flip-side of this, is that fixed-wing drones typically require far less experience on the operator's part to operate successfully. >And I don't know the downsides of operating high attitude. Electronics need extra shielding at high altitudes from background radiation, and many materials act weird when at high altitudes. Additionally you need more sensitive gyroscopes, and if you're throwing all these expensive parts in you want to logically protect your assets which requires additional investment. I was more pointing out that because of wind speeds at mid-altitude requiring a beefier product and these more sensitive electronics needing extra shielding making them more expensive, typically it's preferable to just go with the helicopter models if moving out of rifle range unless dealing with ultra-high altitude drones meant strictly for surveillance or air-to-sea drones (which are also mainly used for surveillance).

>>8077 >re drones falling out of the sky. Could be laser weapons. Soviets demonstrated in the 70s that you could melt the electronics of a plane/helo with in 7-12km effectively (even higher if it was airborne like the A60 complex) >high altitude Why not use vaccum tubes like the ruskies do to prevent solar radiation interference? Mig-31M is a good example, the only "semiconductors" are the ASEA radar.

>>7813 My usage of claymore was lazy because that was my last post of the night. Claidheamh mor is the gaelic way to say "broad-sword" and is what I mean when I used claymore which is nowadays the exact word used in pop fiction to describe the William Wallace design or any large two handed straight sword. Claidheamh dà làimh is "two-handed sword" and what you're thinking I meant. Now as far as >>7816 is concerned I've never seen a fully enclosed one and doubt they were used on the battlefield much if they did exist for that reason. Gauntlets, however, were not compulsory to the kit of the soldiers around that time period (16th-17th century). I think how mercenaries and militia raised armies aquire their kits were through a mix of things passed down in their household, paid for out of their own pocket, or supplied to them out of local town armoury and that was bare minimum. Gear pillaged should go without saying, but the best armour is whats fitted to your body and not off of someone else. Most of those swordsmen were chosen for their high level of skill to be one of the only guys like that in a pike formation. They were probably skilled enough to keep their hands safe and gauntlets also meant less dexterity with your weapon which a dopplesoldner needed to be effective. Thats also one less piece of kit a soldier skilled in the melee has to worry about if they just have the protection installed onto their weapon. Gauntlets were most likely used more by the French who were shit swordsmen which was probably a consequence of them being overly relient on fully clad cavalry charges.

Do you carry when you swim? What precautions do you take to prevent your weapon and ammunition from getting corroded? Do you use a special type of weapon and/or ammunition that is more water resistant? If you don't carry when you swim, how does it feel to be cucked and defenseless when you're swimming?
