I've heard that they'd even go as far as using chemical weapons on civilians, and that they have sleeper cells in who are prepared to perform mass shootings. They even train their pilots to perform kamikaze missions, since their fighter aircraft are so outdated, along with their submarine crews. I actually want war with North Korea. Their people are slaving away for Kim Jong-un.

>I'm hoping solid state battery tech will be one of the steps needed to overcome in the near future
Energy storage isn't the problem. The problem is delivering the energy in a short enough pulse and at a high enough voltage. The required currents and pulse duration mean that even wires and copper bars offer significant resistance so voltage must be increased to high levels. Unfortunately high voltage capacitors are very bulky.

Other methods are probably better for small arms. An electro-air rifle would be ideal if someone could design a compact lightweight compressor that can handle several kilowatts of input power and very high pressure output. Current designs all use bulky piston types that can't be miniaturized and driven at high RPM. If sequential centrifugal types could be designed to do it maybe it would work but I don't know enough about compressor engineering.

Got about 3-400 357/44 magnum rounds of nickel plated brass and was wondering how many times can I reload them?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Not all brass is the same. A straight-wall revolver cartridge with pretty low pressure lasts a hell of a lot longer than a modern bottleneck rifle cartridge running at 3x the pressure.
Until you get a split case mouth, same as straight brass. All other things being equal you're probably looking at something like 1/3 the lifespan of your usual loads, so you might as well save them for stout loads.

Nickel plated splits a lot sooner anon.
depends on how you care for the brass and how hot you reload i have super soft loads that are on reload 8 and some super hotshit ive have done that i can only get 2 out of them. For real nice exprensive brass like pic related I will punch the primer and clean before I store that brass so it does not sit around with all the residue in it may or may not be important but cant hurt to do it that way either.
Also depends on how tight of a roll crimp you put on it. I've reloaded a metric shit ton of 357 and 44 over the last 3+ decades. I still have some of the same brass I started with for those 2. I've had less than a dozen cases split over that time. I find them during the resizing process. I've never had one fail while firing.

They’re overpriced and taste like ass, maybe boots don’t have a choice in the matter on what they eat but I do. I bought one for the fun of it and it was chalk full of sodium and gave me huge shits.
I’m going camping soon so besides sardines for the quick protein what else should be bought for the trip? Protein bars more often than not have s*y in them but always taste bad.

Yes I'm also 100% convinced nobody ever tried turning horse feed into soldier feed ever in history.
>They’re overpriced
I get them local for 10.50 which I don’t think is all that bad. Generally 2019-2020 dated, too.

Asian beef strips is great and so is the hash brown/bacon/onion/pepper.

Try eating them while actually /out/ and you’ll appreciate them a lot more.
Greenbelly bars are tasty, as are some freezedried meals.
Personally I love good to go musroom risotto with some patagonia salmon mixed into it.
Bring Summer sausage, dried pasta, cheese, tobasco and tomato paste and you have a tasty hot meal for dinner.
As for breakfast and lunch, muesli, sourdough loaves(generally hardier and longer lasting than regular bread), canned tuna, peanuts and pickles are always good.
Its also good to try foraging, wild asparagus is fucking yummy, and I like having fresh stuff in my diet.
Yeah, MREs are terrible. Everyone should stop buying them so I can get them really cheap.

USAF, USN, USMC should be forced to adopt a standard jet trainer/light attack/COIN/missile truck.

Basically a trainer/light attack with two engines and carrier capable with good range and ability to A2A dogfight and at least back up real fighters and create "pressure" on enemy fighters, and do lots of secondary combat missions like mini-tanker, ASW in semi-contested airspace, etc.

Idea would be to both keep hours off the big bucks jets while also always having lots and lots of "assets" for everything short of peer2peer 4th gen level dogfighting battle royal (but that is still mostly about who has the best missile to release).

I really like these style of plane, they are very cute with the relatively large cockpit.
I was mostly talking about the scorpion. The taco is a piece of shit really, it doesn't have the thrust to take enough sensors and bombs up to altitude. And on the topic of altitude, it's a fucking prop, at bingo fuel and no store it can barely reach airliner cruise altitude.

Well if history is a guide, there are many examples "the next great plane" turning out to be a total piece of shit when war breaks out, and "sleepers" turning out to be workhorses. When it comes to fleets of aircraft, diversity really is a strength.

But zommer idiots have np wisdom, they are convinced they don't need it, vecause they judge themselves as being really smart. So they want us putting all our eggs in the same basket, the f-35, and as soon as anyone develops effective countermeasures for it our entire air fleet is worthless.

Do you think North Korean pilots are aware that their ancient old Migs stand absolutely no chance whatsoever against US and South Korean eagles, or are they purposely kept in the dark by the DPRK’s high command?

Seriously the fuck is wrong with people. Like bro, stop being such a jerk, she shouldn't have even been shooting that gun anyway. Stop being autistic and just enjoy the girl's company and let her have fun. If I were lucky enough to have a cute gf I certainly wouldn't turn her off to guns with this autism. I would've offered my buckmark but I ran out of ammo.

you niggers don't seem to understand. The communists and ZOG are the same. There will be no state sponsored aid of the Cuban people. If it happens, it will be people who volunteer to go and fight the communists as a paramilitary.

they'll end up the same way that the last guys did
does it matter whether they win, they got to stand and fight against communism, I think that's a better death than dying from heart disease alone in your 60s, knowing you accomplished nothing, and then facing God with nothing to justify your existence.

Why would they be illegal in California? If anything you'd think they'd be mandated soon since they're lead free
