Name a single practical purpose that a PCC serves that isn't served better by a rifle, shotgun, or handgun. The only real reason to buy one is because they are fun, cool, and have unique designs instead of slavishly following trends.

>First, the cost
Much cheaper than an F35

>Second, AI isn't quite there yet
The F35 pilot still has control, the AI is probably adequate and anyway, software is much easier to upgrade/replace than hardware. When the controller flips the drone to armed/autonomous kill mode, there aren't going to be any airliners in the vicinity. The question is whether a J20 could blind its sensors or something with some advanced quantum ECM which isn't out of the question but that's kind of handled by having way more of them than the J20 could ECM.

>law have not move a bit
That could change with a penstroke and certainly would in a near-peer war but anyway, the pilot is still in charge so it's not autonomous from a legal perspective, it's just a weapon system like CIS that can respond to detected threats when armed.

>Thoughts on Loyal Wingmen?
I think they're viable as a force multiplier/cheapo squadron, I'm not sure what the effective limit is but two F35s and a dozen wingmen drones are a serious threat to a much larger wing of J20s while being much cheaper and using far less skilled pilots.

Cost (to order of magnitude accuracy):

>A massive waste of money.
It's debatable whether it's useless and pointless but by defence program standards, it was a piddling waste of money and a chunk was billed to an ally so you're not even paying for all of it.
>We know so little about the how and why behind the downing that such a claim is essentially baseless
I think it's fairly well known that the drone control signals were just not secure and relied on facing opponents without 1st world electronics hardware and training. It was a known weakness but bureaucratic fuckups and typical military "somebody else's problem" bullshit meant that it never got fixed.
You know those mini-fighters that double as extra guns in every Gradius-like SHMUP ever? They're that.

Sorry for not tagging this post in my previous post.
To justify space fighters you have to answer one simple question: "What do fighters do better than, or exclusively related to, larger ships?"
To date, physicists and engineers have been unable to come up with a good answer to that question.
They can't carry as many weapons, and what they carry is likely much weaker than what larger ships could carry.
They can't go as far.
They can't evade enemy laser fire.
They can't mount armor or active protection systems equal to a larger ship.
The engine type is likely going to be limited to non-nuclear, otherwise the pilot would need a heavy shield when mass is at a premium.

There's nothing a space fighter could do that a space missile can't do better simply because it doesn't need to come back. I'm sure a lot of steamship captains from the 1890s had a hard time adjusting to the idea that torpedoes and bombs dropped from airplanes could sink their boats, yet it happened. War changes as technology changes.
>you can't occupy territory
What fucking territory? All space-faring nations surrendered any right to make a claim with the Outer Space Treaty. At best you'll get facilities and small bases which won't exist the moment someone with god rods gets in orbit.
> the Outer Space Treaty.

Was that some thing that basically said space belongs to the USA?

Yeah because Russia is broken. That's the reason Russia will forever operate T-72 derivates.

Looking into buying some Altbergs online but not sure about the size, With regular shoes, and boots I'm a size 9, and they fit well but I'd be hard pressed to wear a thick pair of socks with them, Shoul I size up?
20 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Something to understand is that shoe width is just as important as shoe length. Go to a shoe locker near you and ask for a brannock device. Chances are they'll have to go to the back and get a tool. Look up how to use it.

I am a 10EEEE, for instance. A generic "size 10" shoe does not fit me in the slightest.
Vibram hater here. They don’t last for me. They wear fast and uneven.

Inb4 stop dragging your feet

Pre-Vibram era I had boots that the soles would last 5 years Vibram don’t last me a year

Any other options out there?
Vibram wears quicker because it has a higher grip coefficient. Uneven wear speaks more about gait issues though. Post the soles of a well worn pair of shoes and I'll see if I can tell you anything worthwhile.
Get the size you normally wear, they're lasted to wear with thick socks as standard.

Why do modern militaries prefer assault rifles to SMGs?
16 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
Unfunny faggot
only effective against older soft armor.
because all SMGS come in either 9mm or some meme anti-armor quasi-rifle imitation (inb4 'muh ump 45'). if there were some middle grounds taken, like 10mm out of a 10 inch barrel, I'm sure it would meet some of the roles SBRs aim for.
>making rifles shorter instead of SMGs longer
>wanting to use the same mag for all platforms
Unless you have ceramic plates. 5.7 beryllium copper rounds will slice thru it
Wow! It can shoot though armor meant to stop pistol rounds, just like any rifle round, and use up most of its kinetic energy in the process so it'll have dogshit terminal ballistics.

Hello K, I am having problem getting my AR bolt carrier back in. I took it out to the range for the first time the other day, took it home to clean it, and i got everything back together except the bolt carrier won't go back in correctly. I can't find anything about problem on common problem threads. When I seat the bolt carrier back into the gun, it won't go all the way back in. you can normally rotate the bolt, but it will not rotate when seated in the gun. It doesn't leave enough room for you to connect the upper and lower back together because it sticks out too far.

I could provide pics if needed, thanks guys.

assuming hes not retarded and actually put it backwards it could mean the bolt was inserted in the carrier with the ejector on the wrong side.
Pretty sure this is what OP did.
Will an "enhanced buffer tube" like this https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/ar15-ar10-enhanced-carbine-buffer-tube prevent that from happening?
Other Anons have already mocked you rightly for this, but if you're still reading the thread just be sure from now on to regularly practice assembling and disassembling your AR, read up on it, learn what each of the vitals does, learn about all the ways your AR can fail and what to do to safely address those failure modes, don't let this discourage you from taking it shooting.

Every single time this debate has been had in the 12 years I've been here, there is always one absolutely brain dead retard that posts something profoundly stupid, and that goes to this poster:
>I personally use a wolf +5% power spring and only load 15 out of 30 for my home defense mag. So it's going to last a lot longer than the surplus spring with a mystery round count I replaced

There are no "sides" here other than people that understand modern material science and those that don't.

Pull out a good quality loaded box mag that has been sitting for 70 years and it will work just fine.

Even mag springs that have weakened from a couple decades of constant use are usually fine. you're going to get fatigue cracks, dented/worn feed lips long before the springs shit on you.

This is silly reddit shit.
It's not irrelevant at all. You are a pedantic fuck.

The M-1841 wasn't a thing in the 1770s and probably outclassed the much older guns by a fair margin.

Here's a couple french guns from around the revolution:

This is likely a better comparison than a cannon like the 1841.
Some men with long range weapons maybe a M87 because the marine corps is cheap as shit would absolutely fuck all their horses from range and then there would be no hope of any type of artillery getting moved on you which is the only threat. Calvary can be stopped at range with just small arms and machine guns. You just keep running away and eventually 100 guys will be able to slip away from the 100k then you can regroup un hassled and start your resistance again whenever you want or you can just live in the American wilderness like a mountain man and never worry of the British coming to kill you.
Brown Bess smooth bore muskets...
vs modern accurized rifles and men trained to use them...
Real fact: Kentucky long rifle was one of the Continental Army's advantages. Morgan's Riflemen decimated the British at the Battle of Cowpens using sniping tactics.
So...given enough ammo and obviously superior shooting range, Marines win.
You guys are crazy if you don't think that modern forces vs. muskets wouldn't be an absolute slaughter regardless. If the marines get 40mms and have good optics and the opposing force doesn't have cannon it's game over.
>modern day marines
they fuck it up and fall back

Biden is obviously going to win in a landslide. They are going to do epic levels of election fraud. An assault weapons ban is inevitable. Even worse Biden proposes requiring existing ARs to be NFA registered. The mini-14 does pretty much what an AR does but isn't legally defined as an assault weapon. Will it become America's rifle like the AR is?
