Bought one used for $60 and it came with a carrying case and two magazines.

It’s alright but I would never pay full price for one.
went to a gun show last weekend and a coomer had a .380 problem solver inna case for $250 and I couldn't stop myself from laughing explosively. I did get two kydex holsters and two glonk korean drum mags for $70 from another table so it wasn't all bad, but holy shit some of the boomer prices were hysterical. One of the drums was "broken," I brought it home and wound it up the wrong way until the spring jumped and spat a single jammed-up hollow point across my garage, works perfectly now kek
The company will repair any Hi point you send them for free, even if you're not the original owner. Nigs just beat their guns till they're broken and never send them in for repairs.
I wonder if anyone ever took advantage and bust beat their gun up and sent to for repair/replace after murdering some guy
a fun, cheap and somewhat decent gun for the price, you of course sacrifice reliability accuracy and all fancy addons but its hard to expect anything more than what you get, overall a 7/10

>Pretty irrelevant isn't muttland going to be a Spanish speaking country in 10 years
Missiles aren't the primary method of ASAT warfare. There are all kinds of other methods. One is tethering to an enemy satellite and deorbiting it so it burns up in the atmosphere. There were internet rumors decades ago that we could literally kidnap a satellite out of orbit if we wanted. Allegedly some of the newer NRO birds have the ability to be serviced in orbit which lends some credence to this capability. There is a few cases of supposedly derelict satellites coming back online suddenly and mysteriously that appear to support these claims.
>If we started doing testing again, what would be priority tests?
You are uninformed.
Compact variable yield 10-500kt warheads that can fit at least 10 MIRVS in a single Trident II. Basically the same as now but with larger upper end yields. Another interesting idea would be birdshot type MIRVS, ie 30+ 10kt microcompact warheads on a single Trident II.

If you have one how do you like it?

I want a backup gun chambered in 9mm so it can use the same ammunition as my primary weapon and I find snub-nose/j-frame revolvers to be better in this size range than pistols, I can shoot them better than subcompacts and also carry them in alternative positions more comfortably. You can also load the cylinder from your magazines. With a subcompact pistol, if you had to reload the thing you would literally have to unload one of the magazines for your primary weapon and then load the magazine for the backup pistol. Pretty much not going to happen.

>If you have one how do you like it?
love it, it's my pocket carry when i'm too lazy to throw on appendix or my dress doesn't work with it.
There's lots of Chrono and gel data for the LCR9 now. It equals or beats 3" pistols and tends to do well with most hollow point ammunition. It can do almost 1150 fps with 124 grain. This is because people forget that the cylinder is part of the "barrel" of a revolver, so a 2" revolver actually has almost 3.75" of actual burn tube. The cylinder gap is usually considered to be the equivalent of a .5" loss of barrel length, but Ruger does a good job keeping their gaps tight, their revolvers typically give the best velocities for a given barrel length. Unsurprisingly the LCR9 is competitive with other subcompact 9mm options as far as ballistic performance.

I recommend duct taping a lvl 4 plate to your back.
If you rely on something to save your life and it's a complex machine that you actually put wear and tear on on a regular basis, it's a good idea to carry a spare of some kind.

>production capability is relevant
>it´s me, or this is a lose situation for Ukraine?
Only if you fall for thirdie cope about cost of interceptor vs. cost of attacking ordnance.
The cost of whatever you've placed the expensive anti-air around to protect it would probably exceed the cost of wasting interceptors to kill the incoming threat.
This is a very well understood cost/benefit analysis that was already done in the Cold War vis a vis bombers, missiles, and frankly men.

The only people who focus on the cost of a thing to destroy cheaper thing are unironically people who can't afford many of either in great quantity, let alone afford to possess anything of value enough worth an S-400 or Patriot's protection.

It's cheap, it's proven, it's compact and it's almost absurdly versatile because it's seekers are in the fins, freeing it up to use any sort of warhead or fuse easily.

I am a noguns europoor who knows little about firearms but from what i ve seen and heard most 3d printed guns are semi automatic and you are printing just the body while the mechanism is metal.
So why not just carve it out of wood and try to diy a bolt action or even semi automatic based on time tested designs?
You ll probably be able to use a higher caliber and you re also not going to get cancer from filing magazines all day long.
What I am actually asking is if there is any pdf you can share with me on how to build an m1 garand.

I could easily do that in wood, just not in one piece

If you had ever been around linuxfags and cryptofags you would know what he meant

Here is one for $5000

Bear in mind that is the cost of the mill, it doesn’t include the cost of tooling, collets & perhaps most important of all precision measuring equipment; calipers, micrometers, gauges.
Ian from Forgotten Weapons described manufacturing lines where parts were milled. There are many steps, at each step there is machinery to make one cut into the work piece. As it moves from machine to machine, more cuts are made u til you have a receiver or whatever piece it is.

As far as I understand it, CNC replaces all of those individual machining steps, and does all of the milling as defined by the code it is given.

LWMMG was sexo but still too clunky. I got to fingerfuck the Sig 338 LMG the other day and it's basically and inprovement to the LWMMG in every way
Hk21 is the best and should have been adopted instead.
Define clunky.
If I were going to call something clunky it would be that front section of rail on the SIG that needs to be rotated out of the way before changing barrels.
The best what? MMG? Its chambered in a battle rifle cartridge and the performance really doesn't compare to the LWMMG or SIG's MG338

Did you know we have MMGs?
Yes but I think cartridges like 338 norma are a better gap closer between the LMG and the HMG and thus more of a true MMG.

>LMG: 5.56×45 NATO, 1,800 J

>MMG: .338 norma: 6,585 J

>HMG: .50 BMG: 18,000 J

Machine guns chambered in cartridges like 7.62x51 or 7.62x54mmr are much closer to LMG territory than HMG

>Kendo sparring and kata are frequently with wooden swords
Kata yes, but you don't actually hit each other there. Sparring? Nope.

Hagakure was a bureaucrat's midlife crisis.
As for bokken sparring it wasn't completely unheard of, but it was damn rare. It wasn't until the shinai showed up and got popular in the 19th century that sparring started to be a regular thing (and even then just with the schools that decided to bother). There are multiple reasons for this, but the one most important in the current context would be that the injury rate was simply too high to be acceptable even by the (in our eyes) decidedly fatalistic standards of the time.
So if OP wants to make a sword for just swinging in the air and such practice then wood will do nicely. If he wants a training sword for sparring then there are, as has been pointed out, better options.
Why do you think they stopped doing that? An incidental blow to the head or hands would fuck a child, sometimes permanently.

You're making a western training tool but of course you can't be expected to be a good father and do any research. If you did, you'd read that even in period, wooden swords were considered inferior and dangerous and required the use of armour to be done with any safety. Got some breastplates and a helmet laying around for your kid? All period texts refer to them as a "if you have nothing good and no other options around, you can at least do this" option. Maybe I can appeal to the fact that the training will be strictly inferior with wood as, again, you cannot practice binding, winding, and thrusting with a wooden sword (all of which aren't present in the eastern shit you keep referencing for some reason)?

Even the link I sent you specifically instructs that wooden swords are not safe even for use on pells. Compared to ratan/bamboo, hardwood splinters and can shatter when broken - the shards have been known to blind people permanently.

It is legitimately safer to train with a steel feder than a wooden one. I hope you don't cave your kid's chest in, crush his fingers, or permanently blind him, but it seems like you're intent on doing so. Don't say you weren't warned.
I see. Wish we had bamboo here.

Does that tiny yellow splash on the map look like it could field 50k-80k men to you? In the late 1300s the kingdom of France, which had a population of 20M before the black death and maybe 12M after - so probably ~100 times as much as that statelet - could field maybe 20k men at one time if they really pulled out all the stops.
>""""possibly"""" exaggerated

When will underage retards on /k/ stop believing completely made up numbers? This shit is the historical equivalent of Russia claiming to have killed the Ukrainian air force 5 times over.
The Balkans were orders of more magnitude more populous and wealthier than Western Europe, even during the early centuries of Ottoman rule, and during the 5th-14th century the difference was even more significant.

Furthermore, 400 professional soldiers acting as modern heavy cavalry routing the 1000 they met on the field and effectively "routing" the rest of the army is not extraordinary.
