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.

1.8t dollars spent on piece of shit jet that will get destroyed by much cheaper jets and defense systems. It's as if the US wanted to fuck themselves over. Imagine spending all that junk in a useless endeavour and not into space exploration, investing into mechs/humanoid war machines and ai? What a waste.

This. There is Pistol High-School. Luger P.08, Walther P39, Colt 1911 are teachers. SIG P226, Desert Eagle, and H&P P7 are the jocks. Rest of the students are Beretta M92FS, Browning HP, CZ 75, S&W5904, Ruger P85 (latino), SIG P230 (female, and P226’s younger sister), Hi-Point C9 (black). Glock 17 is the new kid in school and he gets bullied because of his polymer frame. Especially the sport teacher Colt 1911 doesn’t like him.
The school will have an important IPSC competition against the Revolver High School. Unfortunately, CZ 75 breaks his extractor and cannot participate. P230 and P.08 get Glock 17 on the team. Thanks to Glock 17’s large mag capacity and light weight, the Pistol High School wins the event.

Gun ban, our protagonist fresh out of the factory finds himself in a police evidence locker due to factors he can't control, befriends an old .38 murder weapon revolver and together they hatch a plan to escape before they get sent to the smelter. They have escapades through the city where some evil cop guns try to hunt them down. The finale would be our protagonist finding a good home with a competitive shooter girl who's in college studying to be a doctor or some shit and the .38 becomes her carry gun. Themes of coming of age, police brutality and the pitfalls of the NFA would be prevalent.

>>
>>48456358
Depends. The RMA 1199 Gen 2 is lighter, at 4.8 pounds, but it's single-curve.
The Ceradyne Defender 275 BTFO both of them. Slightly lighter than the 1199 Gen 2, much thinner than both, and I believe it is multi-curve. These plates can often be found online or on the surplus market.

Did anyone else watch this Escape from Tarkov series? What the fuck gun is this thing? What did we think? IMHO this series has been pretty good in terms of realism; Nikita has talked about wanting the series to reflect the game.

Has anyone else watched this series? How do you guys feel about the gun play? Again, like the game, I think this is pretty much the best we can ask for in terms of realism

What is the best way to store ammunition long-term?
>>
>>48456511
Yeah
>>
>>48456511
Vacuum seal it and then store in waterproof ammo cans with a preservation grease like cosmoline.
The air itself is your enemy. Oxygen and water will corrode any ammunition given enough time. Pull the air out and then keep it away.

I'm playing out with facial recognition software and a dji drone and a soft gun.

the thing I try to figure out is how can I pull the trigger of the soft gun remotely.

I use python script and opencv to fly and do the facial recognition using my raspberrypi.

but I can't figure out how to pull the trigger.

I only need the trigger part
can you guys point me in the right direction

>>48456295
as you see there are so many options
on how to do it, so yes that's the hardest part for me, because I don't want to hit the trigger just once.

thanks to the other answers, I heard of a rotary motor but I never heard of an actuater

is a actuator compatible with a raspberrypi

Code monkey here. Can anyone recommend where to get started? Always wanted to learn about actuators and shit but have literally no idea where to begin.

This is the only correct answer.
>>
>>48456344
Actuator just needs a circuit to be completed on a command. You can use a car door lock motor as an actuator, just have to give it juice when you want the trigger to be activated

Not sworggers allowed, only brute blunt force edition. Are kult of athena maces/warhammers a good choice? Pic related is cheap but I want something brutal yet traditional.
The hammer will be used for hog hunting in case I run out of ammo, don't have a gun on me or if I'm under caffeine induced rage. I'd rather clobber a charging boar with a warhammer than use a knife

I have one. It is not a good weapon. The shaft is thin and meant for ice and snow, not anything more solid. Sure you can use it as a weapon if you are hurling into the back of the skull of someone standing still, but you can do that with a pavement brick too. I struggle to think of a weapon that would be easier to disarm from someone.

Awesome. Why spend 10 buckeroos on a hammer when you can spend 100 in parts to build a much worse one.

The food is garbage that is probably one of the primary causes of obesity in the west.
>not the comfy cushy $100k/year jobs they want without the effort
At least until Democrats and Republicans destroy those jobs through harmful trade deals and H1B visas. One side does it to destroy demographics the other to boost the bottom line of the Chamber of Commerce; thus learning a trade is pointless because Juan has taken your job and learning to code is pointless because Pajeet has taken your job.
>not the fizzle "high class" water they want though
There are entire rural sections of this country where water must be boiled before it can be used safely, and this isn't just Flint, Michigan. We never hear about these neglected people, tho; because White lives don't matter.
Yeah, I have an axe to grind with both sides of aisle.
As for guns, I love the battle rifle platform and the G3/CETME is severely underrated everywhere but /K/.
>>
>>48455560
That's called an AR-10 and they were battle rifles that were fielded by a few countries, usually in a pretty limited capacity. The Portuguese seemed to like them a lot and the Cubans did, too.
