What is the difference between these and a regular usb sound card? And why does wiki say that TNCs only handle AX.25?

Ground loop isolation, direct physical control over levels, and PTT activation.

Generally speaking, AX.25 is only used for packet radio.

Waco was a centre for saving children who were in the elite child trafficking rings, Fed's were told to erase all evidence and kill them all as they didn't want no one finding out, underneath there was a hardened bunker that was blown with cemtex placed on the ceiling, the blast then killed all the women and children hiding inside, there was a few photos that were taken of the bunker, I remember a while ago a thread on /pol had photos of the bunker ceiling and inside. It was a cover up job.

>Budget is $600
FNCs these days tend to run $3000 and up when you can find them, unfortunately.
All that sounds good.

Will a higher twist rate slow down or otherwise negatively effect a heavier bullet? I don't plan on hunting with it. Why would you pick a heavier vs a lighter bullet? Which grain was the gun designed to fire?

I'll plan on going with a 10/22 or something instead of a .22 LR kit for now then.

I intend to start out just practicing at short range to get a hang of the gun, and eventually practicing both close and mid range. I might get into long range stuff eventually but I'm not worrying about that right now. What progression of irons>1x>low power variable optic would you recommend to work up to good mid range shooting? I don't mind going right to a low power variable and running it in 1x in the beginning, but if starting with a 1x red dot is better that's fine too.

I'm not really sure what other board to put this on, but I know that this board has a decent number of Navy sailors and merchant mariners on here, so I figured I'd ask here. It can also just turn into a uniform general thread if people want to dump pictures, I will be as well.

Basically, I need advice as to whether or not it would be appropriate to wear a uniform for something. As a bit of background, I am a deck officer in the Merchant Marine, which basically just means that I work on cargo ships. I'm a civilian, I have never been in the armed forces, although I have worked for Military Sealift Command and been involved in a few "military" operations, as well as the annual supply missions to Antarctica.

My daughter is getting married next year, and when she was talking to me recently about what they want the theme and dress code to be (Catholic wedding, black tie), she asked me if I would wear "my uniform" to it.

The thing is, the Merchant Marine doesn't officially have any uniform. In the past, specifically the WWII era, the Maritime Service had a uniform that was pretty close to the Navy dress blues. For a few decades after, each company had their own uniform for officers, all basically the Navy uniform with a few badges and stuff replaced.

Would it be in poor taste for me to get a "uniform" made and wear it? It would essentially just be a US Navy officer's dress blues, but with the Merchant Marine cap badge, and with Merchant Marine "rank" insignia, obviously no medals or anything (although I'm technically authorized for the Antarctic Service Medal). I just don't want to feel like I'm being a tryhard, God knows there's enough sailors in the merchant service already who secretly wish they had joined the Navy. MARAD technically still has uniform regs on the books, so I wouldn't be "stealing valor" or anything by wearing it, but it's just not something you see guys do anymore.

Academy grad turned tugtrash. Just wear the white combo cover, navy jacket with deck/engine and navy pants.
No, because she doesn't understand that merchant sailors don't really have a uniform and that it isn't so military as she thinks it is.

I think it would edge being tryhard.

Saying that, I guess for officers we have short sleeve white shirt with epaulettes and black pants. Look up "top hat ceremony Welland Canal" for a good idea of what Canuks would wear, but those are Chief Engineers and Captains.
If there's no actual uniform then a nice suit with a pin representing the branch seems best.

Love these uniforms. Only change I would make is for the rifle to be a Type 99 but countries use semi-autos like the M1 and SKS because they supposedly balance better when doing ceremonial things with them.
I've never understood why Yanks have such an aversion to uniforms. It's like you're all still in your edgy teenage years where you don't want to conform to what other people do and show you have a free streak. In 99% of the world, uniforms for the merchant navy is standard and always has been. I'm not sure why the Yanks have done away with it in the past few decades, but then again your military uniforms look like glorified Scouts costumes, and one trip to a Wal-Mart tells you all you need to know about American fashion.

I say go for it, everyone else will be wearing a cheap tuxedo they rented from Men's Wearhouse that reeks of classlessness anyways, so you might as well wear a cheap polyester uniform from some Navy supply depot too. You can all look like trash together
>visor cap has a chinstrap across the visor
>they're also wearing an additional chinstrap
Doesn't it kinda defeat the purpose of the ceremonial chinstrap if you put another one on to actually use

So the Germans invented the Infantry Fighting Vehicle in WWII with the Hanomag Sd.KFZ.251 half track. This was designed to accompany tanks in combined arms warfare and deliver a ten man squad into battle and support them with MG fire. It was successful and popular.
Yet the Allies did not copy the concept. America had the M3 half track and Britain the Universal Carrier but neither were true IFVs, they were utility vehicles sometimes pressed into that role for want of anything else available. Late in the war the Allies cobbled together makeshift APCs by taking the guns out of SPGs and removing the turrets from Hellcat tank destroyers. Was it not a disgraceful oversight that purpose-designed vehicles were not built? It's not as if combined-arms warfare came as a surprise or something. Putting the infantry in trucks to keep up with the tanks left them highly vulnerable.

When was the first true western IFV - the M113 Gavin? Or was that just an APC "battle taxi" rather than an IFV?

Then why are UCs and Halftracks disqualified from the title of IFV by this definition? The allies had vehicles to move troops and support them in combat (UCs, Halftracks, Assault Craft), they also had vehicles meant to keep up with and support infantry in combat (Armored Cars, Light Tanks, SPGs). And both categories had examples from the interwar period as well as the early war, so don't give me the "they were only present at the end of the war" horseshit when even the woefully unprepared pre-WW2 US military was dicking around with them.

it was such a bad idea that when the us was writing its postwar mech in doctrine that the aggressive use of german half-tracks in world war ii was one inspiration
I'm confused as to what metric you judge the 251 by to deem it an IFV that also leads you to the conclusion that the M2/M3 were not. I mean I can understand the fact that German armored units were using mechanized infantry support before some other nations, and that perhaps that by your arbitrary judgment the 251 was the first to fill this role, but it wasn't like the US didn't have armored units doing the same exact thing with M3s.
It should also be noted that the 251 was no more an IFV in the true sense than something like an ACAV M113. While it had the firepower to support infantry units on the front line along side tanks and other AFVs, it lacked both the durability and tactical flexibility of a true IFV.

>If it brings infantry to the battle and hangs around to support them it's an IFV.
>HMMWVs are IFVs
>Technicals are IFVs
I feel like a big problem here is that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of the neuances of what "IFV" means, and also just aren't very smart.

That $200 auto loader they have is also actually pretty great. It needed a break in of a box or two of shells but after that it’s eaten everything I’ve fed it pretty well, with the exception of the occasional FTE from that light cheap 7 1/2 shot bulk stuff that most autoloaders are picky with.

As a hunting shotgun though it’s fantastic

Seating it deeper can create dangerous pressures. The issue is I can only fit two rounds in a magazine because they are long. Otherwise they work fine,
A quick glance at other mfg's shows OAL more in the 2.24 range, either they're using shorter bullets or seating them deeper. I can't imagine an AR mag with a tenth of an inch + missing from the inside, but maybe it's possible
They exist, but I can not find them anywhere. DPMS made magazines that took 2.400 COAL to accommodate 90 grain projectiles, but couldn't use the standard AR bolt catch. There are mags that fit 2.300 COAL that I can find but its still not enough.
Anyone know of a publicly accessible, outdoor range, with rifle rentals in the NE area? Trying to go shooting with the boys
Ahh like these then
But can you find the bolt catch needed? We have a bunch of old AR mags where I work, I'll measure them on Monday and post back in the QTDDTOT when I get home
