I'm a beginner. 9mm pistol about 15 yards.

your trigger squeeze. slow it down. you cant pull it slow enough.
Honestly the only way to get extremely proficient with pistol shooting is to slow way down, and focus intensely. If you’re shooting a Glock the first thing you want to do is line your sights up focusing on the front sight. Then squeeze the trigger until you feel the wall in the trigger. Continue following through squeezing and breathing normally until the shot breaks and surprises you. After awhile the break will no longer surprise you. When you get really good you’ll be able to feel every stage of the trigger and know when you’ve pulled a shot before you even look at the target.

You’ll never completely conquer pistol shooting, but if you can get to that stage where you know exactly what you’re doing, when you’re doing it, and why you have flyers then you’re a better pistol shooter than 95% of people.

Once you’ve got that down, then start focusing on grip, speeding up, target transitions, one hand, weak hand, cover and concealment, drawing etc. The faster you go, the more your groups will open up. If you can always slow down and put shots where you intend to then the rest will come. If you can’t slow down and put shots where you intend to then you’re fucked for everything else.
the brand of ammo isn't responsible for that shit, lmao
do you even own a handgun
>Have you confirmed that your pistol is properly zeroed?
When you fire the pistol off a rest or a sandbag are you still shooting low and left?

Ammo can certainly affect accuracy, but not by that much at such a short distance.
Assuming you're right handed, you're trying to compensate for recoil before the shot.

how much damage would full auto 9mm cause to a guy who's wearing full armor and helmet?
16 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
>muh you try it bro!!
And go ahead and let them fill you up with 5.56 or 7.62. It’ll only take a single shot from a real carbine. 9mm is only effective against civilians with no protection, it no longer has a place against peer targets
If you catch a round to the hands or arms YOU WILL drop your gun from shock and pain.
Maybe you would.

What’s the legality of going to my local Walmart/ Amazon and pranking them on radio traffic?
>me very confused
If you put your radios to low frequency output and only use them outside of where you live, you will be fine. If you are a nigger, broadcasting on high frequencies to anyone that will listen and do it often from home, you'll get fucked. It isn't WHAT you are doing, but HOW you are doing it. Radio signals can be tracked to point of origin and ease dropped into.
>I have people I need to reach that are 5~ mi away because I live in a rural farm area. Im using it for neighbors to communicate incase of emergency,
Asking people to pick up your incel hobby "just in case" is above and beyond the call of duty. Give your dad or mom, with a radio tuned to yours. Teach them how to turn it on and that's it. Everyone has cell phones and they work well. It would be a catastrophic monumental fuck up for cell phones to stop.

I have a question. What do you think of turbine engines in tanks?
Do they provide a significant advantage? What are the drawbacks that make them so uncommon?
12 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Modern fuel controls make smoke not an issue. Turbines have large IR plumes because they move literally tons of bypass air for cooling. They are not more fuel efficient and often less so but the US has infinite logistics so not a problem.
>I have a question. What do you think of turbine engines in tanks?
They were good in their day, but diesel technology has largely caught up since.
>Do they provide a significant advantage? What are the drawbacks that make them so uncommon?
The advantages are mostly in that they are quiet and powerful in comparison to a lot of diesel engines that were available in the 80s. They could also be made lighter weight for a given value of torque than diesels at the time, which was attractive when tanks were already broaching on the 60 ton mark even back then.

The disadvantages were that they were difficult and required exacting metallurgy to produce, difficult to service, more temperamental to inclement conditions and tended to guzzle fuel like crazy. Their multifuel capability is often touted, but there were contemporary diesels capable of that too so it is less important than a lot of people imagine.

TL;DR- they were nice if you had the loggy train to back them up, but these days diesels do most of the things they do without the associated baggage. Turbine engines just haven't developed as fast as conventional engines.
They also have a virtually unlimited top speed as well.
The only consideration is that at a high enough speed you'll eventually end up throwing a track.

Not sure what this is, but the Abrams replacement (before it was canned after the Soviet Union fell) was going to have a new turbine, the LV100, in a series hybrid setup. Is that similar?

>inb4 what if every country is fucked
if industrial capacity is destroyed to the point where it's impossible to produce even relatively simple medications like modern insulin, humanity is probably about to go extinct anyway. It means there's been a catastrophic meteor impact or gamma ray burst or something of that magnitude. I don't even think a full-scale nuclear war would be enough.
>have been GATEKEPT by /g/-type linux neckbeards
Goddamnit, install Linux (it's free) on any pc available (if you don't have one, get a usb key, install Linux on that and go use a public pc).
Learn how to use Linux by literally watching Youtube (LearnLinuxTV is pretty good: https://www.youtube.com/c/LearnLinuxtv ).
Start learning Python with either Youtube or Automate the Boring Stuff with Python ( https://automatetheboringstuff.com/ ), which is also free.
Keep going from there by learning C and how to make a site ( /wdg/ - Web Dev General on /g/ is your friend).

Sounds fair enough, our forces are pretty gimped when it comes to their budget and what we can muster over the past 40+ years so it's a miracle we can still be experts at anything.
one grew up shooting all the time, the other didnt touch a gun till 18. nuff said

Look, the RM are really cool but they aren't SF no matter what the UK MOD want to try and brand them as.

>Royal Marines are elite infantry that are equal to SEALS.
literally the most cripplingly retarded thing I've ever heard.

I fucking hate it here.
We had the expertise and have deployed consistently enough in that time frame to maintain and improve upon it. A lot of this is due to the NCO cadre, which few countries come close to equaling.

Get a .22 revolver so that if you get a dud you can just move on to the next round. Why not go for a .22mag?

>The big auction houses like RIA, James D Julia, etc, get estate lots too.
Smaller ones do as well. Last year, a guy's milsurp collection got auctioned off three years after he passed away. There was an insane amount of rare rifles being auctioned off. But the guns were never cataloged, and the auction house handling everything didn't usually deal with firearms. So they enlisted the help of an LGS to describe each gun. This LGS must have been run by fucking morons, because they listed most rifles as a 'K98k'. Those that weren't also tended to be completely wrong. As a result, I got pretty nice deals on a "Mosin 91/30" (top) and some Chinese Mausers. Even though this was a best-case scenario for someone who does their research, plenty of stuff still wound up going for wild prices.
>Reality is that boomers were better with money. Anons will seethe but it's true.
To be fair, boomers didn’t have as much instant gratification to blow their money on. There was no DoorDash, Netflix, Spotify, Onlyfans, Hulu, Grubhub, Uber eats, Amazon Prime video, and every other cyber convenience. HBO and other subscription TV channels were a luxury, not a vital lifestyle accessory. There just wasn’t the same quantity of intangible feel good silly shit to waste money on. Hookers and blow, and Vegas was about the extent of it.
>Worst part is I truly believe that he's going to outlive me.
Hit the gym, chubbo. Quit chugging 2 liters of Mt. Dew every day, eat a salad occasionally. Go outside more than once a month. Hot Pockets and tendies are not a balanced diet. Quit whining about how unfair life is, Princess, and unfuck yourself.
>you see it frequently in older films even as late as the 90s

I've converted several people to Osprey.
