Is that the LCT HK33? I bought the Classic Army version just before LCT announced their's. The Classic Army one is okay, mosfet is nice, but it feels a bit flimsy, LCT must be a brick.

Its built like a brick shithouse and weighs like 10lb but thats good because i destroy guns

shoots great but when i first got it all of the controls were super tight because of LCTs tight ass tolerances.

Yeah, we were NATO. We wanted guerilla ont he 2nd, even got the tickets for it but they swapped us since there were 3 of us and they wanted those spots to go to some other guys that were friends with someone in the cadre for guer. I could see MSW being fun if the people would stop trying to LARP big Army and line-Marines and would just go a bit more "Panty Raid at Delta Phi".

That said, I've heard Desert Fox events are better and there's rumor they might run one nearby in the fall.

I cannot emphasize this enough: GO MILITIA/RUSFOR. I distinctly remember sneaking around the line the first night at Caspian Breakout and hearing an unidentified unit talking to each other. It sounded so unlike any way I've ever heard people talk on RUSFOR, we knew immediately it was NATO, and then we ambushed the shit out of them. NATO gets filled to the brim by weird fetishists who talk like military robots. RUSFOR and Militia is also filled with weird LARPers (I'm definitely one of them), but it's definitely a lot more light-hearted and self-aware.

If you absolutely must stick to NATO though, check out TF Keg. They're 10th mountain impressionists, and they're all super chill too. Desert Fox events are just your typical 3-day pick-up game "milsim" experience but with a neat app. Plenty well produced, but nothing new.
>>
>>43347
I'm guessing you're actual military. I've heard this complaint a lot from other dudes that are/were and I feel ya, but I would suggest going again and having the mindset that you're trying to help younger guys learn and appreciate the knowledge we have and providing them with some small manner of mentorship. It can be very fulfilling that way

HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

>What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations, boulders or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses. Climbing shoes and a crash pad are usually the minimum equipment needed. Other styles of rock climbing (Sport, Trad) use various forms of protective equipment while climbing.

I always get so quiet and antisocial when i boulder, I treat it as I'm at a gym. Can't really not do it, it's like my brain goes into "don't care, gtfo"-mode automatically. Which sucks cuz I wanna find someone to climb rope with. What do?
>>
>>43555
I find that the easiest way to meet people is to ask for help on beta. Everyone likes to give advice. Look for people who are a little better than you, or on the same project.

That will get you some bouldering partners. Finding someone to get on a rope with you will require a little more work.

If you ride mountain bikes off-pavement, get in here. Commuters and pavement ebike boomers stay home. Only extreme riders allowed

Share mtb stories
post your bike
talk about your techniques
talk about your routes
ask about any of the above
discuss hatred of hikers who wear headphones, are looking down, and have their dogs off leash then have the nerve to get mad at you for passing them even though you have your bell on the whole time

Now that /asp/ has been resurrected as /xs/, it's time for a parkour thread. I've been getting back into parkour the last couple months and I have to say I missed it as much as I missed old /asp/. Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the lockdown chains of Corona-chan? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

I guess freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

very old timer here that sometimes lurks the threads (~2006-2009), trained this spot a few times when it was still painted orange. that pre is actualy not *quite* as bad as yo might think. Scary for sure but the distance isn't insane and if you overshoot you're pretty safe

>>
>>42757
>Do humans carry bias? I heard this UK guy carries some UK bias.
>>
>>42757
He is accurate enough when you remember that he does indeed come from the UK scene. Jimmy is an enthusiast inside the scene who knows people who know people, not an actual historian, so that's the perspective you get. The massive jams and cross-culture pollination of the early 2000s has died down and lots of scenes fragmented to different stuff and some scenes have died out with the march of time, so to get "proper" historical overview would require translators and contacts from those different scenes around the world to actually go beyond the personal network of contacts that Jimmy has.

Best case scenario would be proper studies by academia, but that requires traceurs in universities to do actual work and not just jump the gaps.

Other than that, I'd like to see someone like Jimmy to come from different scenes. Maybe some eastern european, or Finn, or German, or hell, get some guy from France who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows one of the yamakasi, and you're off to a good start for getting a perspective different from UK scene.

Ok here's the things I learned in fighting and from watching others fight.

You need:
>Hard. fast hands
>Some takedowns and cranks

You don't need:
>Kicks
>Groundfighting

Generally, fights start in a punching distance.
1. Punches are thrown
>Someone may get KO'ed -> Fight over
>Othewise, someone will start clinching
2. Standup grappling

People who think ground and pound styles work in the street often do not understand that most people that are willing to fight some random stranger often travel with friends.

You start choking a dude out, or do some shit that makes the fight boring for them to watch, they will start coming over and stomping you out. It's literally bar fighting 101 shit

Hood (Oregon) has year round lift accessed skiing.
Rainier (Washington) and Timpanogos (Utah) have year round skiing if you're willing to hike.
Zermatt (Switzerland) has year round lift accessed.
Beartooth (Montana) has lift accessed summer skiing. Other places in Montana have lift accessed winter/spring skiing.

Squaw has been open into July a few times, but April or May is typical and Snowbird usually stays open later than Squaw. Late May is typical for Snowbird, July at the latest. Snowbird goes later than Alta.
>>
>>42826
To clarify: Rainier and Timpanogos have summer skiing if you're willing to hike. Winter is a bad idea on those mountains, you'll fucking die in an avalanche. But there's plenty of lift accessed winter skiing close enough to those mountains.
And another clarification: Beartooth only runs the lift during summer.
For east coast, I think Tuckerman is hikeable all summer.
