How do you spray paint the metal so it doesn't wash off
you let it dry
Nice photo
How long? Don't you have to sand it before applying the paint?
Anon, spray paint is going to come off.
You have to use engine enamel and bake it in the oven if you want a finish to be close to permanent.

A thread to post big irons, little irons, lever irons, break action irons, single and double action wheel irons, black powder irons, old irons, new repro irons.

Feel free to share resources, links to sites or channels that have a wealth of information & feel free to post irons as well & discuss their historical use in frontier or their current use on the open range or in the wilderness.

Quality wise, I think it was heavily dependent on the lots they gave you. Mine is plain brown boxes, some others had text on it which was the bad ones supposedly.

I bought 450 rounds which was three packs, should have bought way more. First 150 round group was about 85% that fired with maybe 1 or 2 hangfires and the rest being duds. I'm most of the way through the second 150 round group and am at 100%.
Also PPU 30-06 is $20 a box from Aim. Granted shipping is killer right now but it's better than most other 30-06
just discovered a rivet on my M1 Carbine handguard has come loose. not sure if I want to try replacing it myself.

At least strip every single last one of them for fucking parts
Someone tried to steal them and sent the cases to the wrong buyers.

For anyone not wanting to sit through the video the site was https://www.govplanet.com/ and they pulled all the other small arms cases already. Shit ton of MREs and poncho liners though
It’s like you WANT to start a war with the mole people.
>one group loads 107 cases and calls it a day.

>”those dumb loaders almost forgot one”
I’ve worked in a warehouse before. The communication between the distribution station and the delivery location is actually laughable.

How bad are nuclear weapons really? Since 1945 there have been over 2,000 nuclear explosions around the world, while most in desolate areas, and not really destroying much, how much damage will nukes do in real world use? besides destroying large amounts of infrastructure, should we really to worry about nuclear fallout? Are we all gonna end up like John Wayne?

Yes modern weapons are far more powerful, but the blast pressure experienced by most structures will be about the same as Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The point of building a bigger bomb is so you can burst it higher and effect a larger area. You're not trying to evaporate downtown LA, you're trying to cripple the entire metro area
This - you'd want to work on the assumption that anywhere not glowing bright green would be Katrina levels of societal disorder for a while. Make friends with your neighbours.
Most nuclear weapons would also be used against military targets such as silos and not civilian infrastructure.
Nuclear war isn't harmless but it's not the apocalypse envisioned in the 50s and 60s when stockpiles and yields were ever increasing.
>how much damage will nukes
Less that any vulcanic eruption. In the early 90s, there was a volcanic eruption that lowered the average air temperature by one degree Celsius for a year. All the nuclear weapons on earth are incapable of repeating this.

Not every eruption, they need a VEI of 3 or 4.

Does the P90 have no gas system?
It's a blowback
It's like asking if OP is not a nigger.
I don't know much about guns but where does the gas go then?
Out of the muzzle like it does with every firearm, even gas operated ones vent most out.

If I ever had to go to war, I'd carry a 1911 as a sidearm. If I ever felt the need to CC, I'd carry a .38 spl snubby.
1911's can still run while slathered in copious amounts of mutt-sauce.
is that a tiny snake mixed in with them?
>People have been using 1911s as their concealed pistol for over 100 years.
Yes, and praise Allah that the great Gaston Glock invented something much better.

There was some guy on Barfcom who got into a defensive shooting with his CCW'ed 1911. He got shot early on by the dirtbag, and all the blood made things slippery, so it was hard for him to hold the 1911, and in particular it was hard for him to keep the retarded grip safety pushed down enough to allow the gun to be fired. That's the first thing that almost killed him.

The second thing about the 1911 that almost killed him was that he ran out of ammo. He managed to hit the dirtbag with the last bullet, and the dirtbag gave up and ran away. But the dirtbag didn't have to do that, the dirtbag could have just as easily stayed and murdered everyone, which would have been easy since the 1911 guy had fired off all of his ammo to get that one marginal hit.

But you do you. At the least, get that grip safety permanently pinned down. Last time we had this exact same thread, someone explained to me that the 1911 isn't drop-safe in its original design, and the Army insisted on yet another safety device to prevent it from firing if a cavalry officer dropped the damn thing on its hammer. So, you're literally carrying a gun around that was too crappy in its original design to satisfy guys who were still riding horses to chase Mexican bandits around the Sonoran Desert.

>NATO has unnecessarily attempted to fuck over
>"Not one step further" was the promise clinton made.
That alleged promise was made by HW Bush, not Clinton, and even the Russians admit that it was a verbal statement given to the premier of the Soviet Union, not a treaty or anything negotiated. I wish that the Clinton administration had been more outward facing and had tried to help Russia transition from planned economy to market economy without having to plunder the bones of their industry to pay to the keep the lights on (but it's possible that there was too much pride there for Russia to be willing to accept the aid), but no one is owed an Empire, least of all a godless kleptocracy like Russia, and if Russia's former client states prefer relations and trade with the West to relations and trade with their abusive former overlords, the US and NATO don't owe Russia anything, and free people are allowed to have relationships and alliances with the nations they choose, not just the nations that used to dominate them.

If Russia wishes to have influence and ties to their neighbors, perhaps it would have been a good idea to act in such a way that these ties and that influence was an attractive option instead of something you seek alliances to combat?
>That alleged promise was made by HW Bush, not Clinton
It wasn't even old HW, it was that shitweasel James Baker. Which, by the way, had no power or authority to offer such a thing.
That "meme" is 100% accurate and you're in denial of reality by thinking Russia is owed any 'sphere of influence' or dominion at all.
Russia has 0 right to have any say to what goes on in Ukraine, Baltics or anywhere else that's not Russia.

Stopped reading after that. The answer is yes.
Aircrafts without support are extremely vulnerable and soft targets. That is the first thing USA learn when their jet got shot down and then just SEAD every time their jets flew.

Why didn't the US use heavy tanks in WW2?
63 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.
No one can prove you wrong because you’re correct. Any of the modern MBTs are heavily armored and massively armed but also are fairly fast and maneuverable. Case in point the M1A2 SEPv3 clocks in at 73.6 tons. The Tiger II at 76.9 tons. Yes they were both heavily armored and armed to the teeth but for obvious technological reasons the Abrams moves faster than traditional light tanks of the era.
Tank Destroyers were more useful. Fast+Big Gun Beats Armor+Big Gun since Big Gun nullifies armor. Also Air Dominance helps a lot
they did use heavy tanks but it was a pain to transport and upgraded shermans were plenty powerful.

shermans being bad is just a meme
>shermans = bad
How the fuck did this even start
Roll on roll off cargo ships weren't a thing so you could only ship a tank to Europe if the cranes on ships or docksides could lift them.

As we all know, the American Military is having a REALLY hard time getting recruits. This lack of soldiers could end in disaster, and MUST be addressed. In this thread we will discuss how to fix low recruitment numbers.

Now if I was in charge, I would attempt to fix the Military in two steps. Step one is obvious, purge the Military of women, trannies, toxic leadership, career politicians Larping as commanders, and Woke propaganda. The vast majority of new recruits come from low income, right wing families and have conservative views. The issue is the Modern US Military is actively pushing against such people from joining due to bullshit political points. "Why ban women?" The Marines found that women are a drain on a unit, and HEAVILY impacts its ability to operate in stressful situations.

The second part would simply to make the Military more fun. Allow soldiers to take war trophies, let them customize their equipment (within reason of course). Of course you would have to balance this with the discipline required to operate in Combat zones and stressful environments, but the military is going to have to start appealing for Zoomers now, not Millenals. Why would a Zoomer be interested in spending his youth just sitting around and sweeping barracks all day?

Also, we're going to need a war to fight. I would suggest starting wars in Africa so we can set up spheres of influence before the Chinese spread too much (they've already started making colonies in Africa). I would suggest going to war in Somalia in the name of "peace keeping operations".

So how would you do it Anons? How would you fix the military?

Two Army dependent children sought mental health counseling when their Major dad was deployed to Afghanistan. Years later as adults, one was discharged a month into Air Force basic training, and the other was denied enlistment into the Army.
And that is the result of a decreasing number of families with ex servicemen. This woke stuff reached the peak under the Obama administration, why is it happening only now?
