I like that sweater, is it something you can wear casually without giving the impression you served? I have never served and I don't want some 50 year old boomer bothering me if I am going on a date with a cute girl because I am somehow disrespecting his sacrifice.

Post Corona prices will never come back down to normal. It's easy to justify price increase during emergencies or shortages, but there's almost never an incentive to drop back down afterwards.

if it was ONLY panic buying, they'd be back to normal within a few years. i don't think that's what this is though. i don't think this shortage will ever go away. it will only get worse and more expensive until the ammo trickle completely stops.
>>
Pretty much. Nothing we can do about it though. I've given up shooting as a hobby, it hurts but what choice do I have?
>>
Competition is the incentive to bring them down somewhat. Note that imported ammo is already starting to make a difference.

But all the printed money will drive up price inflation.

Quick follow up.

Extremely hard to fabricate into useful components. Additionally many of them require the use of exotic and expensive elements for metallurgical reasons I won’t get into.

>3mm
That sounds like a decent amount of cross section for a penetrator spike.
>>
>>48980751
If there's a will and utility, they will figure it out eventually for higher efficiency.
>>
>>48980774

Way too expensive to be worth it right now. Tool stew and tungsten work just fine. Tungsten especially has other features that make it a better armor penetrator than a metallic glass.

>>48980774
We’re working on it. There’s a lot of industrial interest in metallic glasses if we can figure out how to reliably form them. One of the biggest problems is they’re not very thermally stable. Metals really like to crystallize, and it doesn’t take much heat to get them to start crystallizing from the glassy state.
>>
>>48980774

Additionally metallic glasses have absolutely no toughness or ductility what so ever. The penetrator would shatter on impact. Hardness isn’t the only factor.

First off, I’m not here to discredit 3D printing. 3D printed lower receivers and PCCs have been shown to function properly and last thousands of rounds. However, I have to ask. Why aren’t sheet metal working techniques more popular? Sheet metal will always be stronger and more resistant to heat and chemical erosion (including humidity) than even the toughest filaments (polycarbonate, nylon, etc) consumer grade printers can handle. While the initial investment to break into metal working is a little bit higher, it’s not unreasonably high given the task. Not to mention that the market for parts is being threatened by the current administration. “Buy this kit, buy this upper” soon may not be an option.

Why not redesign openbolt world war smgs to be closed bolt, and focus on designing rifles that can be made with a typical machining hobbyist setup.

The best thing to do is to hybridize manufacturing processes. You can use 3D printing for lost casting and to make sheet metal pressing dies and for lots of parts with complex geometry.

>muh dangerous I is skeered
DA trigger is usually north of 12lbs but the gun weighs less than that. You could pick the gun up by the trigger and it wouldn't go off. A glock WITH a trigger guard is more dangerous.

>I c-ccan't cut a gun anon!
Yes you can. You don't have to chop up some minty vintage detective special. Plenty of old beaters and new inexpensive revolvers you can have fun with.

>revolvers are dumb
No U.

If you love snubs like I love snubs and don't know the history behind the snub and its' relation to the Fitz special you should look into J.H. Fitzgerald. He is one of the biggest reasons mass produced snubnose revolvers are even a thing because they weren't a thing until he started doing his custom chop jobs at Colt. Colt eventually did a "factory" chop job on the Police Positive and called it the Detective Special. S&W said "haha fuck you we'll make a snub and call it the Chiefs Special we out rank you faggot!" and the rest is history.

>Only tangentially related but does anyone know the basic gestalt on how stuff like this can detect what kind of AA it is targeting? Modern computers with machine vision algorithms have no trouble identifying complex patterns, but if these were being developed in 2000 then they were surely using 1990s tech for the processors inside. How the fuck did that work? Counting the number of wheels visible, length to width ratio, how many tubes it carries in the back?
It's probably not as complex as you think. It finds a thermal source then scans the laser over it to see if it's raised off the ground and vehicle sized. It looks like it has a secondary mode where it only uses laser data for parked vehicles. I can't imagine it can detect types of vehicles, just anything vehicle sized is going to get shot. It only works somewhere you know there is enemy vehicles and nothing else.
