Or, close to the question I really want answered - if you're not hunting birds, what is the point of a shotgun, for game or for home defense?

Obviously I don't wanna catch a chestful of double ought - but I also don't want to catch a 308 either.

Is there some magical combination of distance and loading where shotguns outperform rifles of similar weight and size?


The real question I have here is not really about firearms, it's about game design. Games often try to be "balanced" which sometimes leads to stupid shit like e.g. Mass Effect where pistols are more accurate than Assault Rifles.

And thinking about game balance, I got to thinking about the point of shotguns in a game. Is there (again, besides shooting at birds or, I guess, drones) anything they're better at than a similar size rifle?

Clearly people purchase shotguns in real life so they must have some advantage - but what is it? Is buck shot actually better for taking a buck than punching a 308 through its chest cavity?

Pretty sure there is alot of books, but the coalition tactics come down to targeting anti coalition groups on the region and leaving it in the control of the ANA afterwords. The taliban tactics changed a bit because they wait until the coalition to leave and also set up some IEDs. Along with targeting officials associated with the Afghan republic. The taliban tried fight the coalition head on, but that ends up in failures and even taking a pot shot will lead to a quick death.

You're a faggot because you're acting like "disemboweling a degenerate" is "cost", and not a benefit in and of itself. Slotting retard trash isn't a "necessary evil" it's an objective good. You should be happy to do it.

Any decent person should *want* to do what he did. You should be willing to pay for it.
>he's turned around helplessly and getting stabbed repeatedly
The epitome of the concept fuck around and find out.
Moralising idiots are attempting to make the idea of self defense irrelevant by pretending a criminal has no intent to cause harm.
As a functional human you have no intention to go out an cause harm, but if you where placed into a situation that mean you where desperate enough to attack someone you are desperate enough to kill someone - if you where not that desperate you would have chosen a path other than violence.
Self defense works on the assumption that if there was no intent to harm, or atleast a disregard for the possibility of harm, they would have avoided violence.
You are simply responding in light of that intent.

Congratulations /k/, you are gifted a are magical staff that allows you to summon 4 loyal military related beings that will follow your exact orders and are given all of their guns/gear/ammo that they require. The catch is that they cannot speak a language you understand and are only around for 12 hours then they disappear for 36 hours before you can summon them again. What current (or past) country would you overthrow using them?

Not gonna kid myself, once you have a couple probably not helping much after, but having them has meant being able to introduce more people to them and dispel the very, very, very common misconceptions. Some have even become new owners, but if nothing else helps build political pressure. There is some obvious low hanging fruit there that really shouldn't be controversial if only we can make it something of a priority on even one side and avoid polarization too, which should also be possible. Doesn't have to be a big cause just a small one.

Will this catch on? To me it seems ideal for CC. Everyone wants the ballistics of 9x19, as much capacity as possible, and as small a frame as possible. Clearly these three demands conflict with each other. 30 Super Carry satisfies these requirements better than 9x19, .380 ACP or anything else. I could see 30 Super Carry growing in popularity with something like .380 phasing out.

And it was developed during the high-cap magazine ban when people were trending to larger calibers to offset the lower capacity.
I'm just mad it's not really 30 cal. If it was, I'd have been more interested.
i think the biggest reason they created it was the police obsession with bigger calibers and hiring women as cops
Bullet length fucks you from using any legacy designs for a custom barrel. Perhaps a 10mm Glock frame with special steel mags could get you the necessary clearance (32 vs 35mm OAL)?

Oh, if they were smart enough (And Ukies are) to hit exactly at the bridge part, that is not so easy to "quickly repair".

It's one thing to repair a rail track that has been bombed. It is entirely different to repair a railroad bridge.
That strike would have completely severed the ability to provide supply, maintenance, ammunition and food from the direction of Kerch Bridge to Melitopol.
If we are going to see similar strikes on railways on Melitopol-Tokmak-Chernihivka-Mariupol axis, that would leave that part of the front line pretty much without any heavy reinforcement or supply.

The russians might still try to bring in supplies to Melitopol-Mariupol axis on trucks, that that is nowhere near to be enough, if the Ukies are going to push to that direction.
At this point I'm not sure if Smerch, Tornado-S, and especially the guided munitions for same, even exist. We've seen Uragan in combat, where are the Smerch?
nah, you losers "refrained" from nuking Kiev because you have no functional nukes. The onlyy ones you potentially had were the ones you almost lost by dumping them near the front line so you could maybe use them.
Even if you fags could use them, patriots would shoot them down because your launch systems, personel and intel are that piss poor.

Comparing the look it's more an airship.
There's nothing really perfectly comparable to a submarine's combination of isolation, stealth, and ability to glass entire continents. B2 is close but you don't spend 6 months in a B2 on each sortie. Spaceships are close in terms of isolation but they're not stealthy.

>How has the Ukrainian military evolved in weapons use during the war?

Are we talking about the Ukrainian military 2014-2023, or just 2022-2023?
That's very shallow overview mr. anon, i would add that even before himars we got a lot of at weaponry like Javelin, Panzerfausts and AT-4's which were incredibly important as before our guys literally couldn't do anything against russian armored groups with bmps and t72's besides just sitting in the trench aaand that's it. Technological superiority of russians felt a lot higher then it is now with all this western tech, as an example, i remember that during battles of Severodonetsk russians were picking ideal long range positions for their t-80BVM's and were using guided rockets from more than 5km range - meaning being absolutely involnurable
The opening of the war was loterally a 'who can fuck up harder' competition

For example the ukranians had no military formations between kiev and belarus, they thought the main offensive would be in the east

If russia had used the tactics they actually trained their army in, soviet style wide front offensoves, instead of trying to replicate the iraq war, we could be looking at a very different situation today
