What does /k/ think of the Swiss Army Rescue Tool?

There are versions with the serrations reversed, the entire length, or gone completely. European market stuff. I believe the Italian one has a wood saw in addition to everything else, because apparently that's an important tool for Italian police.

Thoughts as knife or rescue tool?
If knife, then there are other models and options.

A blood choke and a strangle are very very different things. blocking someone's airway won't result in unconsciousness for 30-180 seconds at a minimum and is far less effective than a blood choke.

They make a pretty damned loud leather slap against flat skin, hence the name. It's a metal weight inside a flexible leather holster. It's not a good melee weapon.

The thing is none of them have a "bad trigger." The Glock is pretty subpar but people are way too sensitive about it. My shitty Brazilian revolver with a 20 lbs DA serrated trigger is bad. Even a Glock 19 has a ~6lb trigger with a good reset and a short pull that doesn't make you put the trigger on the frame to make it fire. P64's and VP70's, those are bad triggers.

It's whatever cheap beater pistol or revolver you find in your local pawn shop
then you spend the money you would have spent on the gun, on ammo to get good with it
when you're actually a competent shooter, then you get the luxury of buying a new pistol, now you know what you want in one

I'd vote for Ohio. Cities there are terrible but the smaller towns and communities are great and theres a ton of stuff there compared to the others. Indiana is probably overall safer for gun owners because they have the least liberals and niggers out of all the states.

If you sank a large enough boat in shallow waters and made it immobile, could you claim that it was an island to increase your territorial waters? pic slightly related

For example, the Chinese could pre-fab a big barge with an airstrip, sink it in the middle of the SCS, then claim it was an island instead of having to dredge fuckloads of sand? People have fought over smaller pieces of real estate made out of rocks (like okinotori). You could stack a pile of rocks on top of your sunk aircraft carrier if people bitch about muh "no rocks"

There is established international law about seasteading and land reclamation. In general yes but if someone tried using it too strategically they'd get slapped.

Any of you know anywhere I can get resources of manufacturing AR uppers myself. CNC or otherwise? Haven't for the life of me been able to find any reliable guides, documentation, etc.
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>43431751
Yeah I know what you're talking about, but I haven't really been able to find many places that sell them, probably for the reason you mentioned. For me though, let's just say I'm someplace where the women glow and men plunder. It's worth making.
>>43431779
Nah, I wouldn't trust a cast upper with my life, especially one that I'd cast myself.
>>
>>43431058
There's no info because you can buy 200 of them with a credit card no questions asked.
>>
>>43431873
In the States, yeah. The rest of us aren't so lucky, and I'd prefer to not rely solely on a Luty.
>>
>>43431664
Not pratically. If you had machining skills (takes years to learn) and you owned the machinery then you could make them. Some rough number estimates:
-If you have a manual mill like a bridgeport, pretty standard tooling, and solid skills (I'm thinking 5 years experience) you might get one good upper out of 20 hours of labor. Expect to have $10k in tooling.
If you have modern CNC machinery (several hundred K), and you know what you're doing you can make them cheap enough to sell them for under $50, which is what the pro makers are doing.

Otherwise it's either finish an 80%, or start doing sloppy-shit tier DIY like >>43431779 mentioned.

I have nearly 30 years machining experience, close to half of that owning my own shop. I wouldn't even think of making AR uppers. There's just no point when they are so cheap to buy. Get 80%ers if you're afraid of the man.
>>
>>43431896
You're better off with the Luty. Craft produced AR uppers just aren't a thing.

An AK might be doable by hand, though. I don't actually know, but I think it would be worth looking into. I still think a carefully made, tested broken in Luty with a threaded barrel, a stock, and a low power scope would be the best option.

Are grenade launchers more effective than small arms?

Say a small conflict started between a company of regular infantry, and a company exclusively armed with MGLs and M79s. How well would they do? What if they fend off even more?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>43429718
It would be a shitshow, that's for sure. But grenades are too specialized and will fall apart if that's all your force has. Best case scenario is they pick up rifles from the first few guys they down since that's when they could have any advantage
>>
>>43429718
GL velocity makes for a slow ballistic arc, with heavy recoil and a 10-30m safety-zone where rounds won't detonate. They might win out in the 100-200 meter range, but any closer (or farther) and they're probably toast.
>>
>>43429718
It'd be fun as hell, for the 20 seconds or so that an average infantryman could carry enough ammunition for. Also you've just upgraded friendly fire from 'a tragic and horrifying incident' to 'fun for all the platoon'.

At the same time, FN were basically on the same kind of crack with the FAL, resulting in the 50.41 and 50.42 FALO or HBAR FAL. Heavy barrel, 30-round mags, and depending on the exact model either a folding combination bipod-handguard or a bipod and slightly different short handguard. The folding thing seen here was adopted by Australia and Canada as the L2A1/C2A1 and kept around until the '80s or thereabouts. Brits did the smart thing and just rechambered Brens for 7.62, HBAR FALs all had a notorious issue of hanging up after the first two rounds out of a fresh mag on full-auto.
