Is there any truth to the rumor I've heard of American mercenaries fighting the brits in the falkland's war?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Galtieri pushed to annexe the islands as a way to distract his population from how shit everything at home was, and the recession his government had pushed Argentina into. I doubt he could have afforded even the cheapest merc outfits around.
No you do not understand, there is no limit to how dumb Americans can be and the stereotypes are true. I live here and the people believe everything they see on TV they DO NOT think for themselves.
Yeah but those people would have booked a flight to Fiji, and would probably forget that they need a passport.
maybe a slight bit of truth. A few people here or there, but we are not likely to find out for another 20-30 years how many or what their involvement was. There has to be some grain of truth in there.
I think the most you could stretch it would be a couple of Argies that had education in the US or maybe spent some time there enough to speaka da engrish but that would be about it
Once they're tard wrangled into the Argentinean army, wearing the uniform and in the shit with the other grunts its not really like a mercenary

A thread for bolt action rifle appreciation why are they so much fun bros?

Also has anyone here rechambered a rifle before? I'd like to swap out the barrel on my Mossberg in 30-06 to a barrel for 6.5x55 Swedish, but I can't find the barrel thread pitch info and Mossberg refuses to provide that info.

not what you want to hear, but 12 gauge shells are still plentiful, at least in Shasta County CA where I am. If you're a nogunz and want something for your home, a shotgun will always work fine for that.
Hey that's fun, man! I think you'll probably enjoy shooting it more than a lot of other rifles. Figure out the holds and don't get upset if it's only a 1.5 MOA gun with that ammo haha
not in cali but yeah thats still great news, Im trying to avoid pistols for a while for many reasons and plan on a shotgun for home defense, hope it stays that way
What's wrong with having a left handed rifle?
Yeah they look fun. Kinda like a mini bolt battle rifle chambered in an intermediate cartridge. Plus, ammo commonality with my Vz.58. Yeeeee.

The Baofengs will not receive digital trunking transmissions. Their DMR radio is their only digital offering, and it won't either. You need a digital scanner (about $500) to receive digital trunking...if it's not encrypted.
Valid points.

Right?!? I think the goal is just to activate all the amateur tattle tales. Our local net more or less put out a warning to be on the lookout for radio traffic that's being "obscured".

My condolences to every ham named John who happens to have a long mustache and a chair against the wall in the coming days.

why wasnt this the future of firearms?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
Yet another Teutonic firearms engineering disaster.
because the army tried to find something new and failed. Had that program worked as intended we would at least have double boolet in 556.

We do not, the g11 was cool but I'm willing to bet it would eventually run into cooling issues due to no casings.

The firearm you posted had issues with the plastics not keeping the shit inside of it dry due to cracking. Also would likely have issues with cooling as well.

Colt stepped forward with double bullet on an m4 carbine (it had a pretty cool barrel shroud).

Yeah it's a neat concept, but a very under devolved one. Honestly, we are fine where we are now with what we have.
Flechettes suck.
because the military-governments are more fearful of their own subjects/constituents than any foreign enemy, and as such are actively opposed to small arms continued existence, much less development. they are only interested in enormously expensive crew serviced weapons, and those really just for the sake of public-funds/employment racketeering. the more complex the manufacture/maintenance and supply of the consumables, the more specialized the knowledge and larger the crew required to operate it, the better. even to the degree of doing shit like the tiltrotor airplane-shaped-object.

if they cared about small arms advancement at all, they would have made polycase/caseless-option pulse-fire happen LONG ago. they would have had second and third and fourth rounds of trials, rather than a single round and then a decade or two gap with the same old MIC contracts for the same old ARs. if nothing else their subjects would have done it for them, and forced them to follow.

My only real complaint about it is the fact it's noticeably more front-heavy compared to other 5.56 service rifles.
They are very nice though and I have a second one arriving within the next week or two.

>Most of the Arctic is frozen most of the time and icebreaker ships are necessary. According to this list of operational icebreakers, Canada has six, the USA four, Denmark three, Norway two. Russia has more than seventy.

>Russia’s fleet is modern, the others are old. Russia has the only nuclear-powered icebreakers – eight in service according to Wikipedia. The Arktika is the world’s largest and most powerful icebreaker capable of operating through three metres of ice; there are three more in the works. But an even larger class is coming: four metre ice; construction began in July. Russia’s icebreaker capacity is so enormous that one of them spends its time running tourist cruises to the North Pole. None of the other Arctic countries has anything like this. The USA is planning to build more to replace its elderly fleet; Canada is “exploring options“.

Why is no nation on Earth capable of challenging Russian arctic dominance?

>Akademik Lomonosov (Russian: Aкaдeмик Лoмoнocoв) is a non-self-propelled power barge that operates as the first Russian floating nuclear power station. The ship was named after Academician Mikhail Lomonosov. She is docked to the harbour of Pevek, providing heat to the town and supplying electricity to the regional Chaun-Bilibino power system. She is the world’s northernmost nuclear power plant.[3]

Will they weaponize it?
Unknown, but they're going to build dozens of them. Their nuclear ice breakers already provide power for some communities.
thats cool but its not AS cool
Russia is a failed state with no economy or demographics.
It has over 100 mil people, most resources out of any country, and their HDI keeps steadily improving. By what metric are they in danger?

3 of those trailer radars will be replaced by picrel.
What is it
Is it actually getting fielded or is it still just in testing?
Is there an official designation for a C-RAM mounted on an HEMTT yet? Or is it just a stopgap until somethin better's developed?
It doesn’t have to be trailer mounted. The trailer just lets it be pretty mobile

I got one of these, they are dirt cheap and a real blast to use. Much more powerful than I imagined. With a broadhead I have no doubt useful for hunting or self defense. And you need no cocking device to span it. I have replaced the string with a coated steel cable, thatll probaby outlast the bow itself. Also opened it up and the trigger mechanism is quite simple. Seriously why do Euro's always cry about muh gun laws when you can get a crossbow in most European countries without any license?

It's not an issue with fiberglass or laminated limbs. These limbs are fiberglass, so some manufacturers buying from Mankung sell them prestrung. Unlike wood, I don't even think fiberclass can develop memory. Unless you're in a hot car with laminated limbs; the resin does soften and bad things can happen under load.
i heard about excalibur, who make lifetime's crossbows. anyone have info about them ?
You can't get a crossbow without a license in sweden
God why is Sweden so fucking cucked with weapons Switzerland and the Czech republic have ok gun laws and are okay
In poland these are actually illegal ,you need a separate permit on the same level as a firearms one, shits fucked.

What is the best, least used range of frequencies to use in a SHTF scenario? I know it's not legal "right now" to broadcast. I'm talking about when everything goes to shit and we are bugging out. What would be the least used range of UHF VHF freqencies I can utilize for my familys radios. Thanks for any help guys. Just trying to get them programmed and all on the same page per say. I don't want to accidently use a high traffic freq and have to change it up on the fly.

Yaesu FT-4XR is the jap answer to the Baofeng, you can get them for around $80 when you can get them.

Nah, there ARE other radios in the Baofeng priceclass. They just don't have anything near the same amoung of functionality and output.

What is the logic of keeping your guns in a safe? Congratulations, now if you ever needed it it's locked behind a combination. Hope you can remember it first try at 2 AM when someone breaks in.

Buy a new house for your first house unless you live greatly below your means. Once you have the money and the equity sell the new construction garbage, buy an older home, then dump money into fixing all those issues before you ever step foot in the door along with a healthy savings for any other additional ones.
you don't keep all your guns in the safe
How is South Africa this time of year?
You don't have to put all of them in the safe dummy.

if someone wants to steal my guns that bad i have bigger problems to worry about than them getting into my safe
a proper well made safe bolted to the wall and floor is going to keep 99% of regular burglars you will encounter out
