In the US we have acogs and eotechs.
The IDF uses the meprolight m21.
Leafs use the elcan specter.
The AUG comes with a 1.5x optic.
The F2000 comes with a 1.6x optic.
What other nations have their own standard issue optics?
>germans have a red dot/magnified optic that fogs
Copying my question from qtddtot
Ok /k/. I bought a scope for my .22 off a dude at work. It was used but over all not in trrrible condition so I thought. I went to zero it today and kept hitting dirt. No where near on target. And I've got it "up" as far as the scope will go. And I'm still not on target. Is the scope fucked or what?

>burr cuntree edition
these are 2 very different purposes. for plinking and hunting you'll be happy with the longer barrel. for hiking and emergency fuzzy defense, a shorter barrel would likely serve you better. trying to CC that weapon is just retardation
We've had some rather interesting conflicts these last 10 years...
Syrian Civil War
And because of modern technology, a wealth of information is available about some of them, including high quality video.
What have these conflicts taught us about warfighting and weapons?
We learned that nothing can be solved with a war anymore unless you have way more resources and manpower than the enemy.
Even then there is a danger from gorillas.
Gorillas are best fought with another set of gorillas, 5 to 10 men teams roaming the gorilla turf, gorilling the gorillas.
There is no real defense against a superior airforce yet.
Also, ancient slavshit never dies
this guy pretty much wrote the book that everyone works from, to varied degrees of success
at least, in what concerns conflicts between armies, such as Ukraine and Georgia and Israel
Artillery is still king, tanks are still shit if crewed by subhumans, airburst grenades are fucking scary, artillery kills tanks even with ordinary shells, give a subhuman an ATGM and he will waste it on a single infantryman.
Why didn't everyone use super long katana?
you wouldn't understand the katana is a spiritual weapon and you can't fathom anything about Japanese culture it's more advanced than you can ever even imagine I know because I'm an expert I train with a katana every single day while you're wasting your life away playing with stupid "guns". I could kill you without you even realizing you were dead
I have studied the Samurai arts and am on my way to becoming an honorary Japanese I even make myself happy on pictures of Japanese girls and authentic anime you just watch western porn

Don't care if you post screenshot. You dropped your parents WiFi and posted on your parents family cellular data plan.
Am I the only one concerned about this "mandatory reciprocity" shenanigans? It looks like it's just begging to have federal-mandated "standards" to get a concealed carry license and other regulations with it.
Because states voluntarily accept the DL of every other state, there's no federal mandate to do so. If CA wants to they can stop accepting DLs from FL or wherever, but that could also hurt business. Only CDLs have federal oversights.
I went to an airshow today, /k/
took a few pics with my potato, hope you enjoy
another one goes in. they must be dirty, else why put them in water?
So what calibre bullet could they have used instead that the book would've blocked? Even for the gun illiterate, you'd recognise that using a fifty-cal would be a painfully obvious bad idea.
>But they tested it with another book first, and it stopped the bullet!
While that is the official, VERIFIED story, I still have my doubts. At best, it sounds like an (extremely) unlikely case of luck.
I know. Life has been much tougher since Google got rid of their reserve image search engine. Especially considering that people's short-term memories these days are bad enough to forget news stories from only a few months ago.
>commander of the Czech Air Force would like to double the numbers of Saab 39 Gripens on lease from the Sweden
Would country the size of Czech Republic even need 28 Gripens for their defense? Or is such number actually enough?
Would it be better to wait until the current contract is over, and then get 30 Gripens E/F for good (as was originally intended)?
Or should Czechs rather look into F-35 for the future?
>Would country the size of Czech Republic even need 28 Gripens for their defense
Size of defence forces isn't a 1:1 perfect scale to national geography or GDP. There are certain floors and ceilings internal to the force, like how many pilots can train, how many aircraft are down for maintenance, etc.
Tbh anything under 30 is too small for a nation that plans to run its own infrastructure.

What kind of helmets were the australian soldiers issued in the vietnam war?
Did the helmets also have covers on them thst were camo?
Most commonly used hessian from sandbags and/or scrim-scarf mesh as improvised covers.
Tucked under liner and with large rubber band to mould it down.
Was still doing same until 1990s and got kevlar lids.
no network security in place
Look for the Ragnar Benson collection. It's a book of Plastic explosives, man traps, improvised firearms, improvised edgeed weapons, I think there might even be some shit about shape charges if not home made rocket launchers.
What is the most american, least commie handgun and long gun?
Duracoat, Cerakote, or Gunkote?
Does it really matter how you store your guns?
My grandfather keeps all his guns in soft zip up cases, sometimes without even wiping them down after shooting, and only one has any rust (his childhood .22 single shot).
I'm getting my first two guns pretty soon, and I'm pretty sure a quick wipe down then sticking them in a soft case won't be an issue.
soft cases are rust magnets so are foampadded pistol cases. both will store moisture. enviroment is important. in a dry environment soft cases are fine but somewhere moist or humid is bad
What's the best EDC pistol from HK?
