Sean Boyne, an expert on defence and arms trafficking gives us a facinating but disturbing insight into the shadowy world of arms dealers, spies and moles. With interviews with the dealers, agents and traffickers involved in the movement of huge quantities of arms into Ireland in the 1970s and 1980s, Sean Boyne exposes many of the little-known aspects of this part of Irish history, such as the IRA's connections to the KGB and Libya. Fully illustrated, with high quality photographs and graphs throughout, Gunrunners lays bare the hidden world of some of the most dangerous people who played a part in this often misunderstood part of Irish history.

Why did boomers horde so much .22LR ammo back in the Obama days? Like I get hunting or self-defense ammo, but was buying every box of .22 in a store really necessary?
>>

>>42109355
Remember Sandy Hook all the way back in 2012? There was a HUGE fear of something that was going to make the 1994 AWB look like childs play, especially due to all of the normies and soccer moms. .22lr as a result actually became rather expensive [spoiler]totally not from ammo companies trying to geg a quick buck from the nonstop fear mongering[/doesnotwork] so people were buying an asinine amount of .22lr and other ammunition. Funny how much times have changed though, Vegas was pretty much a ghost story after a few weeks, even with all of the glow in the dark stuff involved and the body count Paddock had.

>>42109366
This + believing their own Fud lore about how their buckmarks and 10/22s are government crushing superweapons. I was a Walmart manager during the "crisis" and can tell you 95% of our sales were to LGS owners who were turning around and selling them for +300% markup. We tried implementing a 3 box per customer rule to try and discourage them from it but they'd just round up all the "that guys" they had just lurking around and line them up at our counter every morning. They'd even had the gall tell their customers not to buy Walmart ammo because it's been mishandled. Those were funny times.

SHTF/prepping larping general.

To start off, I've seen a lot of people in "loadout" and gear queer threads who may need a little advice on what are the basics for a prolonged emergency situation that becomes violent. So I'm gunna post some pointers.

Then I've seen some people posting that genuinely do not believe that the S could HTF. And in past threads people have asked me to share some of the economic many factors that could lead to a collapse. And then people asked me to copy and paste it so I put it in a google doc.

And then finally there have been many people who asked for and thanked me for a list of links to information, reading material, and PDFs that I have bookmarked, so I'll share those as well.

The bersa is actually my wife's gun that she was given too as a kid so we keep it for sentimental reasons and what not. The AR grip? its terrible but sure is fucking comfortable and helps me alot with stability when doing 3Gun. I was considering a lever at some point although I do not hunt and cant justify owning a 30.30, perhaps I'll get a RI 1911. They're spot better and have a better barrel than colt and Springfields imo. I do have my G19 and my CZP09 as my EDC.

The way I see it, the only plausible tank pistol amounts to a sawed-off shotgun loaded with HESH rounds. Even then, it's a long process starting with destroying the optics, disabling the treads, damaging the engines, and eventually breaching the hatches and killing the crew.

Even at point blank range using oversized AP ammo, piercing tank armor like that is implausible. During WW2 we found that full sized anti-tank rifles and crew served 37mm anti-tank guns were WOEFULLY inadequate for killing tanks.

You would have to use explosives. Preferably big ones.

Even if OP's pic was real and not a silly shoop you could probably throw a rock with more force than that bullet would have with essentially zero barrel length. You'd have a big fireball and the bullet would fall out the end.
