I bought the pass today.
Is this really all there is to it? Is there no other point to this than to leech out my crypto?

I had a 2012 pass but let it lapse without renewing last year. Should I even bother anymore?
If you renew a lapsed pass it keeps the year

Continuing on from >>93796 (which will probably disappear in not that long time, maybe some website archives /vip/, I don't really know, and I don't really care). Starting out, this gnarly art depicting the violent arcade beat-em-up Splatterhouse, because I think it's cool as fuck still.

Here's a thing I found a while back, a drum magazine for 1911 pistols, seen here inserted into an old Ithaca made 1911A1. There's extremely little information about these on the web, but it seems they exist in some quantity, because you can find listings for them fairly often, and they tend to be listed for about $100 to $200.

It seems that it's made out of steel, and the listed capacity is pretty much always 28 rounds, the front of the drum reads "TAYLOR MK.I .45" and "BINGHAM LTD, ATLANTA", with the back having directional arrows and the text "WIND 8 TO 10 CLICKS", with a winding lever on the back. Bingham could possibly refer to Squires Bingham, an importer known for stuff like a .22LR rifle with a drum, which was styled to look a bit like the Soviet Russian PPSh-41, they're still around, seemingly.
The follower looks like it has a rounded shape, probably to help it ride smoothly inside the drum (almost like a dummy cartridge, but without actually being a full dummy cartridge body), it seems like it'd be a single track spiral drum, like an old Luger "Snail Drum". Interestingly, I have found a single picture of one of these Taylor drums where the "tower" on the drum is offset at an angle, a little like on such a Snail Drum (but without the bend). No idea if that was a production item, a prototype, a custom, or what.

I saw one mention on a forum that these drums were made in the 1980s, and were offered as part of some sort of "survival kit," where there was this drum for your 1911, as well as an attachable shoulder stock and a long barrel (so as to not make an NFA item). I have seen pictures of a stock paired with one of these drums in a lot, together with a magazine loading tool, so perhaps there's some truth to that. The stock attaches to a replacement mainspring housing.

I like the older fashioned look of these drums, steel and all, as opposed to virtually every other drum you can find for a 1911 pistol, which are plastic.
I found a scanned copy of the instructions for the drum, which I guess is useful for those who have one of these.
I also found the actual patent, applied for in 1979, granted in 1982, and expired in 1999.

The instructions do actually state that it holds 29rds, and I have seen reference to that in a few places, but usually it's stated to hold 28rds, possibly it works much better when loaded with 28rds. I've also seen a couple of mentions of 30rds and even 32ds, but I have no idea if you can even fit 30rds in there.
In addition, some further examples of the offset style of drum. The 'tower' on those looks like it's longer (because it has to fit in the grip just the same), potentially this variant could contain the larger 30rds or even 32rds, just by virtue of having more space, but they seem to be listed as 28rds or 29rds all the same. Possibly the higher attributed capacities pertain to this variant, possibly they all just hold 29rds and people are just making assumptions.
I've only found these drums in .45 Auto, not for .38 Super, nor the later 10mm Auto

More interestingly, I found an old auction entry for, get this, 1000 unfinished Taylor drum magazine bodies, with the front lids and all. Didn't have the other guts, the follower, spring, winder, etc, and some of them were rusted (allegedly just surface rust), most were not blued. The seller, in Ohio, apparently had even more of this stuff, and he wanted $5000 for the lot, didn't sell. I guess this must have been the original guy's unfinished stock (possibly the 1994 AWB killed his business).
One wonders at the opportunity of someone getting ahold of this material and then completing these drums some day.

Pictured here is a stainless Colt Combat Commander 1911 with the drum inserted. I like the wide target spur hammer it has.
The Marlin Camp Carbine is a simple blowback gun, made in 9mm Luger, using Smith & Wesson Model 59 pistol magazines (thus also 5906 magazines), and .45 Auto, using regular 1911 magazines. For some people, a long gun which uses the same ammo (and magazines) as their handgun is a big selling point, and that's what these guns offer.
This one is pictured with a Taylor drum, which fits aesthetically, I think.

The Camp Carbine has a bit of a quirk thanks to its design (probably a combination of the amount of space the bolt has to travel, its weight, as well as how the action beds into the stock), where the bolt bottoming out, hitting the rear of the receiver, will gradually batter the wooden stuck until it cracks and then slowly splits.
Obviously, this would not be an appreciated gun if it did this, and part of its design is a buffer pad made out of neoprene which sits at the rear of the receiver to absorb the impact, thus saving the stock. Not the most elegant solution, but it works. Neoprene does however eventually dry out and desiccate, and once it's old and hard enough it will stop absorbing those impacts and the bolt will instead pulverize it, then after that it will begin to hammer the stock.

This used to be a problem with these things, because after 10-20 years those buffers will have given up, and there was no source of replacement ones out there for a long time (and examples with broken stocks from use by people who didn't know aren't rare), but these days you can get new ones easily, order a whole bunch of them online for a couple of dollars and you're set.
One of the workarounds to a broken stock was to get a plastic one, as apparently they tolerate it (potentially they have enough flex in their plastic material to act as their own buffer). Choate makes a folding stock-set out of plastic which seems to hold up, looks a little ugly but it's functional. There's also a Muzzelite bullpup kit for these, and I would expect them to be as rough and flimsy as typical.

An example of the Marlin Camp Carbine in 9mm Luger, this one has a scope fitted, and some of the Smith & Wesson pistol magazines to go with it, including two extended ones, even longer 30rd ones exist as well. I have once seen a Smith & Wesson 5906 pistol magazine which has been welded onto a Finnish Kp/31 subgun drum, giving a capacity of above 70rds (not sure if the added 'tower' increases capacity).
I'd be a bit wary of the plastic magazine well and how well it tolerates the weight of that steel drum and all the bullets, but I presume that using the drum for a range toy would be fine.

The .45 Auto chambered ones were fancied for a while as some saw them as appealing suppressor hosts, the cartridge being subsonic in normal loadings. I have seen a custom one with a large integrated suppressor fitting in an inletted stock.
Submissions are closed for 94 Protons Of /vr/, of the goal of 15 maps submitted, we received 20, and they're some damn good levels which I think are going to be enjoyed.
What's left for now is some reworking/polish on the E1 boss level, then it's time to assemble beta builds.

There's more left to do besides that, like the weapon reskins, but those aren't that important and can be done later. I'll probably be finishing up stuff like that over time on my own, along with my own WIP levels and the final boss. If this project has taught me anything it's that I've bit off more than I could chew, but I can't fucking give up and choke either, so I'll just have to keep chewing until I'm done.

I'm really gonna need some help by someone who can do decent 3D model stuff though. I have next to no understanding of how to do that kind of work at all, and getting on the path of learning all that myself I think would make the project draw out yet longer than it already has, which isn't super appealing.

Modern-day groups who have the same principles as the Pharisee are the bane of our existence, am I right? Pitting religions, cultures, and political groups against one another to hold onto the individual sanctity of their surroundings, a sanctity that only exists in the imagination of them as an individual or as individuals as part of a group.

NOUN a member of an ancient Jewish sect, distinguished by strict observance of the traditional and written law, and commonly held to have pretensions to superior sanctity.

Has anyone had any experiences with people or groups who follow the same principles as the Pharisee?

- Before Jesus died most people in Jerusalem were either Jew, Gentile, or Pharisee.

- What text, laws, or behaviours are clearly created to maintain the 'sanctity' of the Pharisee lifestyle?
stop shitting up vip
Is it upsetting your individual sense of sanctity?
p.s. if it was me shitting up the 'log, why would I let my own posts slide?
Oh... I see where you are trying to make this slide... awkward now that everyone knows the rules of your game...

It has become more and more obvious that the U. S. Government, or large parts of it, are attempting to reestablish the psychopathic Nazi regime.

Well history does tend to repeat itself
The US is a recreation of the Nazi regime but instead of achieving racial and ethnic unity through mass murder we encourage it through miscegenation. Good idea, if we end races we can end racism and move onto something better.

Does the report button work? Guy I reported is still talking.
Yeah it functions to send the report to mods but does it actually get removed? Itt depends on the board you're posting on, typically mods are very selective and often have double-standards. There is no such thing as impartial moderation on this site so you should just ignore the person or call him a faggot
