Something about not trusting the yellow man and how he does not like the yellow man. Most of it was incoherent because he was constantly shitfaced.
The cops would always show up because he played music all night with the volume cranked up to the max.
Cops could never talk to him either because all he'd talk about was Tiananmen Square.
One time he got jumped and got the shit beat out of him because no one could sleep.

Of course I never tried to stop him from making noise. I let him do whatever the fuck he wanted.

An Illinois man who had a shotgun booby-trap that killed a neighbor last year was convicted on Thursday of murder and another charge, according to media reports.

A Union County jury found William Wasmund, 48, guilty of first-degree murder and aggravated battery in the death of Jeff Spicer

Prosecutors said Wasmund rigged the shotgun to a rope connected to the door of a shed on his property so the weapon would fire when the door was opened. The discharge killed Spicer as he tried to enter the shed, authorities said. A man who lived nearby found Spicer's body on Wasmund's property on Sept. 16, 2018,

Wasmund's defense attorneys said their client had complained of thefts on his property and suggested Spicer was there to steal. Lawyer Thomas Mansfield argued Spicer caused his own death by ignoring "no trespassing" and "do not enter" signs and breaking the lock on the shed door, he said.

Special Prosecutor Matt Goetten said it didn't matter why Wasmund set the gun to fire, only that he did so -- something that ultimately cost Spicer his life.

this. Interchange basement run with your scavs and its a consistent 150-300K per run.

Once you figure out how to make consistent money the game is infinity easier. Also, get over the gear-fear. If you always run the best shit you can your chances of winning increase exponentially. I see people complaining about being dabbed on by a thicc boi and its like "well, you decided to go in with trash armor and trash ammo... what do you expect?"

Gentlemen,I need advice on deciding my next purchase.
Im debating between a bolt/semi 308 and a bolt/semi 300.Either Savage Axis 308 or M305(Canuck here) or Remington 770 300 WM or Browning Bar 300.
Ive watched ballistic test after test,hunting video after video,Ive also taken down deer with 308 and SKS.Is it worth going up to 300?Is it that much better than 308?
Im looking for any opinion from availability to reliability to why would I wonder beyond the 308.
Thanks in advance.

OP here
308 va 30-06 vs 300 vs African DG rifles vs 270 so far?
Would it be wise of me to get a Savage 110/Axis with a medium grade bushnell/vortex in 30-06 and carry a backup shotgun with 3" magnum slugs (ive got mossberg 500 and 930)?
One of my paranoias is to be in the bush and run into a clusterfuck like a brown bear or wolves or some other shit and not have enough firepower to at least take some of them with me.
30-06 has more powder and seems to be almost as abundant as 308,hits a bit harder too.What loads are good for moose?
>>
>>42613256
you remind me of boomers who hunt whitetail deer <100 yards with a .270
>>
Never take advice from anyone who thinks you cant take a moose with a 308. People used to use the old 6.5 military rounds all the time with great success. Those are slower, lighter, and smaller diameter.

>Electric motors have heaps of advantages for military applications
This. The South Africans are toying with a hybrid power-pack for their Recon vehicles - the idea being you power over long distances with your usual gas engine and then when its time to do spooky shit you switch over to your near silent electrical engine.

Unironically, hybrid engines have a huge role to play in terms of military applications where noise signatures are a consideration.

Optics Planet has similar reviews as amazon users, pic related.
The biggest complaints are:
2011 design, old technology is old
Blue tint
Poor field of view compared to newer technologies.
Weird battery is hard to find.
Not ruggedized.

To me, the one area that stands out is 2011 technology, it doesn’t mean it was a bad, but there might be something better.

The time it takes to load an 8-round stripper clip into an M1 Garand is far faster than trying to jostle and rock in the magazine of modern rifles, to the point where stripper clips are arguably more combat-effective than magazines.

Reload time is everything, and anything over the standard 20 rd magazine on a rifle is unwieldy for little benefit other than suppressive fire.
If I were to field infantry units at a low budget, semi-automatic stripper clip loaded rifles would honestly be a better pick

My HBAR is more accurate and easier to reload.

The Garand is obsolete for a lot of good reasons.
>>
>>42615836
No. You’re wrong. Suppressive fire is current western military doctrine. It keeps the enemy from moving so ordnance from fast air or artillery or rotor wing can destroy the enemy. It’s a monetarily very expensive way to fight but the payoff is it’s extremely low risk.

I feel like something like the ruger 10/44 is inherently the best feed/load system for combat.

and to further back anons point Russia, China India, Europe, etc all these places are interconnected to each other so they have deal whatever geopolitical shit flinging is happening while the US can sit back and laugh at everyone like a post WW2 kind of thing. The example is here. Everything going on between Yemen and Saudi Arabia has almost no effect on the US but could deeply effect other major counties that rely on Saudi oil.

Are you saying we couldnt track a warship off our coast? Shadowing foreign boats is common in all oceans. Thats like saying if a Russian bomber in the 70s used a stand off nuclear cruise missile 100 miles of the cali coast we couldnt possibly prove it was the USSR
>>
>>42612957
Shadowing a boat =/= attack. China follows us all the time in SE Asia without incident. Iran has made boat trips to US waters before and was shadowed. Its very standard procedure and has been done for decades. That way, if a boat DOES do something, you can immediately respond.
>>
>>42615259
In Operation Preying Mantis we btfo a hefty chunk of Iran's surface fleet and they just took it. Any attempt on the Straight will similarly end poorly for Iran. We have no need to invade, just rough them up to the point they agree to stop whatever it is that pisses us off. Then its back to normal. China may even go for some back room deal to keep Iran's regime around in exchange for not intervening on the ground, and thats if they truly feel the oil is threatened.
>>
>>42612767
The problem with deterrence is that Iraq, Libya and Syria have shown that attacking America carries the same consequences as not attacking America.

They could be but they won't be. The trial program(2017) that >>42598264 mentioned found that equipping a battalion of 800 men would cost about 700,000. They're suppressing everything except probably sidearms, even the m2s. I dunno how many small arms a battalion has, but even if its 1200 for those 800 men, they're paying 600$ per suppressor. Even if they need 2 suppressors per man its 450 per unit.
