Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

Are there any significant reasons to not take a tokarev over a wonder 9 when you're trying to cover your bases? Ammo availability non withstanding.

The ergonomics are pretty bad on the CZ52. And the sights are not much to write home about either. And the stock trigger is about what would be expected, which is not good. So not really a tack driver! I still love mine. Looks so cool and I have a thing for funky mechanisms. Plus that little bullet goes!

>In a military context handguns are shot much less than submachine guns yes.
True, but not what your sentence conveyed.

>nato spec 9mm not being to friendly on Beretta m9 locking block but being just fine for the mp5 and uzi
The M9 handles 9mm NATO just fine.

>The cz52 i’m sure was fine as a service pistol
I mean it just has to be a pistol, given how little pistols are used you could supply an army with Hi-Point pistols and it'd be decent enough to do its job.
What I think is a problem however is that the CZ52's decocker is known to actually fire some guns at some times.

>But as a private owner saying “omg so strong it’s a leetle g3 muh shtf armor piercer” is just false
I never did, I pointed out it's not like the G3 at all, being short-recoil and actually locked breech.
The 7.62mm Tokarev cartridge does do pretty well against soft armors, however, that is actually true.

You're right. And if I had a pocketnc I'd try making real Gyro rounds. I've cast engines from doublebase smokeless powder in acetone before. Not that they worked well. that was many years ago. I was 12.

Oh it's definitely difficult to do, and I'm only going to casually try. I think having a small delay to allow time for all the engines to get burning would help. Like I said the hammer system in a MBA might work for that.
But I think a single engine with straight or maybe canted fins will be good enough for some LARPing, maybe it could even spice up an airsoft match (or start a forest fire).

This is almost exactly what I had in mind. I'll be keeping eyes out for the results of your tests.

What are you using for propellant? I've been doing research on what it would take to make/acquire nitrocellulose. It appears to be the case that its a thermoplastic in some configurations which would allow you to print/extrude the exact shape you want.

I read the old docs on gyros and he would paint the exterior of the propellant in titanium oxide (white paint) to prevent it from burning outside in at the same time it was burning inside out.

I don't know where else to post this, but idk, I live in a low income part of the US, I live in some shitty apartments but I own some electronics that are worth something (they're actually my dad's). These electronics are mostly speakers and instruments and he likes playing it loud so I'm not surprised if people in the apartment complex would hear it, but I found this last night inside my house in front of the entrance door, it seems very deliberately placed and I am worried I will get robbed as my dad is out of the country and my house stays alone for a rather large part of the day, it looks like a something you would use to get through locks. is this enough to take to the police? I'm scared guys

Ergos arent nearly as dynamic as a machete tho. Cant have a backswing. Also requires a lot more training with to use. Also harder to use in enclosed spaces like hallways and rooms. Start swinging wild with a machete and youll fuck something up.

Would you rather have 5 shots, each with a 96% chance of producing a one-shot stop... or 6 shots, each with a 95% chance of stopping & dropping an assailant (oh, and it only produces about 2/3rds the recoil)? 110 grain .327 Federal Magnum from a 3" barrel produces about 95% the same effectiveness as 125 grain .357 S&W Magnum out of a 4" barrel. SP101 in .327 Fed Mag is like carrying a 3/4 scale duty gun which is effectively just as powerful as a GP100 or L-frame. I just keep thinking about it. It's doing like 1400 fps & 500+ ft/lbs from a three inch barrel. Talk me out of getting a 4.2" 7-shot GP100 instead.

Yes they could be used for indirect fire. Tanks carried the tools for plotting and determining what adjustments would be needed.
http://www.theshermantank.com/about/sherman-lee-and-variants-gun-data/m4-series-fire-control-how-the-sherman-aimed-its-gun/
That link has a section at the bottom about the indirect fire role. This was done a lot in Italy and during Korea (with both M4 and M26 tanks). For getting higher elevations the tanks would drive up onto a berm or down into a trench with a slow pointing up.

What are you talking about, we won every middle eastern engagement. We lost bodies to dripfed hearts n minds patrols in transition periods where its literally troops walking the same police patterns that was so ez a child could put a ied or truck of peace in place. This was no different to the mindset that sloppily added names to the black wall in DC.

Or are you now equating cia proxy force losses to count against organized us military supremacy? Because it continues to be the us military winning ground and spook/politicians losing those gains.

I also don't know what you mean by this, however again, immigration helps the economy, now under our current system, the economy is privately owned and the owners seem to enjoy hoarding wealth. In a fair system these economic benefits would be redistributed so everyone felt the benefits. Not allowing immigration doesn't change the fact that wealth is still funneled upward.
For your final point, how does favoring a market socialist system disqualify me from supporting a document that limits the reach of the state? I swear man, you guys really don't do anything to dispel the "anti-intellectual nazi" meme.

I've been reading about the Boer farmers in South Africa. The situation in the country is untenable but the government won't permit them to arm and defend legally, so the Boers have limited options. Pic related

First, make dwelling access harder so the victims have a little more time. I have a few thoughts:
> Firearms like AK and Glock and shotguns cheap and easy to source but come with their own set of complications. Still a great option in my view
> Flame weapons such as propane or petrol flame throwers, or hose them down with gasoline and then ignite
> Hot oil splashed on invaders forcing their way in works spectacularly well and the screams are exquisite, but takes time to prepare
> Acids also handy for denying access, can be squirted out of any pressurized dispenser
> Rotts or Sheperds if affordable, otherwise shit bulls -- easy to teach them who to bite and you could feed the dogs with the bodies
> Melee or entry denial weapons? A bladed spear can easily inflict fatal injuries and deny access through door or window
> Electricity as a weapon?


Disposal of invader's bodies? Well, I was thinking butcher the invader's bodies and dump the meat deep in the bush, or just run the bodies through a woodchipper to replenish the earth.
