Seems Julay is back up. For anyone not in the know, /k/ is over on cafe until Julay 2 comes out as it's too unstable here.
>>21555 How is it unstable? SPQR went up the day julay went down.
Is cafe down for anyone else?
>>21564 Yep, me. Hoping it's just server maintenance. The way things are going, we may have to switch to 08chan or something.

Building a small shooting range, need suggestions Strelok 07/06/2020 (Mon) 18:49:50 No.21588 [Reply] [Last]
I just moved out to a promising property. I have a large and steep hill on it which would be an excellent backdrop for a small range. Planning on shooting pistols, 22lr, shotgun, and close quarters AR. No, I don't own anything impressive, just decent stuff. I have about 40-50 yards and about a 90 degree spread, with different elevation levels (up the hill.) I plan on building a shooting table as well. I need suggestions on targets. preferably inexpensive DIY reusable (i dont want to shoot bottles, would prefer to keep it clean) if anyone can suggest target holder designs, or maybe a way to make or buy iron targets (i would like a report to confirm my shot) please make suggestions. or whatever you find useful. hoping to hear from someone with their own range that shoots often. Would like a mini hickok45 setup basically. Thanks in advance!

Fitness and Fight Conditioning Strelok 06/26/2020 (Fri) 06:11:17 No.21582 [Reply] [Last]
Hello! There is so much of info on munitions. Yet, I couldn't find any proper info on fitness. A few months ago, I came across a txt file by the name "Iron hands", and the concept in there is pretty crude, and does the job even. So, grabbing onto that motivation, I am looking forward to a guide to be hand to hand combat ready. For, a skinny guy, with improper physical fitness, Can you suggest me a source/guide, to be battle ready? Like, some sort of reflex conditioning that I can work on, everyday, so as to be able to defend myself if someone attacks me. Thank you..
>>21583 Thank you.. Guia street book, isn't in english, so, the pictorial depictions are of much help. While, the Muay Thai is the opposite, and has only step by step guide, and the author asks to train with a partner.. No problem, thank you very much!
Macro fitness is more important than skills. It's only when you are physically fit that investing in combat skills is worthwhile. You could do both- it's just about time. I just got the boot camp manual in PDF and do that, it's probably not the best but it works towards measured fitness standards.
>>21585 Got you!
OP, it used to be skinny, meek, and got picked on/beat up a lot, so I know where you're coming from. I think there's 3 components to it: physical fitness, actual training, and mental attitude. >fitness There's millions of plans out there for you to choose from. I like a mix of powerlifting, work with weights to strengthen mobility and overall strength and flexibility, and cardio, but that's up to you. I think the biggest thing to focus on is cardio. You don't have to be strong to win a fight, but you will need endurance. Ideally you'd train both long-range (think running 5 miles) AND intense but short training (think sprint cycling). Essentially you want to train your lungs to be able to hold more air/ use it better so you don't get winded fast. For strength, I'd say to focus on more compound movements, and especially more "crossfit-style" stuff, like kettle bell work. This will help to build full body strength as well as balance and use of your body. >actual training Pick a discipline, learn it, practice it, and stick with it. The most popular ones are brazilian jiu jitsu for ground work and either boxing, kickboxing, or muy thai for striking. What's important is to learn how to use your body, not your strength, to deliver blows. >mindset You'll develop this from doing the former two. Learn to walk with your chest out, learn to handle verbal confrontation, and trust that you can fall back on your skills if those fail.

>>2594 People don't seem to get how thermals actually work. Thermal cameras detect changes in thermal signature just as they would detect motion through standard cameras. You can see in this footage they are the only thing in the Forrest more than 10 degrees. You would practically be able to make a cover for a foxhole or trench and that would work very well. If you were defending an area you would be better with a thermal decoy, heater, battery, timer, raincoats sewn together. What upsets them is a background with a varied thermal signature- practically this means terrain with variable thermal mass. That could be achieved by positioning stones

How 2 go about getting a high capacity mag if I live in a state where they're banned completely? NY state is garbage but I managed to get a setup with detachable mags. Just unsure of how to procure something better than 10 round capacity. Ideas? It's kinda fucking stupid that I can own a rifle et al. but I can only have 10 motherfucking rounds
Go for a drive? In most of the country you can walk into any sporting goods store and buy standard cap mags with no id.

Strange and Curious Firearms: Fuck your fingers edition Strelok 08/10/2019 (Sat) 16:53:10 No.126 [Reply] [Last]
I'll start with the
HINO-KOMURO M1908 PISTOL

You probably have heard of the Type 94 Nambu pistol, infamously known as the"Suicide Special" with the exposed sear (it's a feature t.Nambu), but there is a far more sinister and curious Japanese pistol that is rarely talked about.
The Hino M1908 pistol was a blow-forward operated, semi-automatic pistol chambered in 8mm Nambu, .32 ACP, and .25 ACP. The 8mm chambering was later dropped as the cartridge proved too powerful for the design. All known sources state that between 8 to 15 rounds could be held. Now, a blow-forward operated pistol is rare for sure but don't make me explain the specifics of it, since I'm no-funs except for airshit. My basic understanding of the operation is that it functions like a complex open bolt self-loading slam fire weapon.
The blow-forward operation allowed for the gun to be loaded just by flicking it forwards, thus it is one of the few examples of a firearm that is capable of being operated by a single hand.

The gun itself is highly simple and uses few parts, as shown in the diagram. It is one of the few truly symmetrical firearms out there, as there are no mechanisms on either side of the gun. The safety comes in the form of a grip safety which resembles the grip safety on the Nambu Type 14 pistol, but by all accounts this gun was reliably unsafe.
Here are some reasons why...
>The Hino is an open-bolt, fixed firing-pin, blow forward gun, thus cocking the pistol traditionally (racking that slide) requires you to pull on the barrel. This potentially exposes your body parts over the muzzle, especially in high stress conditions; should you catch a piece of clothing or anything on the sear, the barrel could potentially retract, chamber a round, and spring can fire the round by pushing the round on to the fixed firing pin. One oopsie, and you've got an unintended discharge that could very well end with a lost finger or a new hole in your palm.
>The manual states the above as a glaring issue, and advises users to flick the gun forwards and load it using the inertia of the long barrel
>To safely unload a chambered round, one must retain the barrel while he decocks the trigger (i.e. pressing it down), slightly pull back on the barrel (which if you do this too hard, you've unintentionally discharged à la slamfire style) and pull forward the barrel. This is issue was seemingly rectified in some later American models which seemingly allowed for a 2-position firing pin.
>The safety feature of this gun is a grip safety only. That is usually not optimal, it's seen in some guns like the H&K P7; but in the Hino M1908's case, the gun doesn't have a trigger guard. Should one holster the firearm loaded in a manner so that the grip safety and trigger was depressed, it would unintentionally discharge.
>Since the disconnector and sear were incorporated into the trigger as a single piece, not depressing the trigger enough or not being snappy with the trigger would [classical mechanics in Japanese] and cause the Hino to fire in full-auto
>The inventor of the gun Hino Kumazo suffered two wounds directly from this firearm. First he accidentally shot his left thumb off after trying to load the thing, and the second time, he was accidentally shot in the back by his gunsmith, exiting through his abdomen. He survived these wounds, and survived the firebombing of Tokyo which burnt down a lot of important files about Kumazo's invention's and catalogs of his firearm, but he died of malnutrition, a broke man, in 1946.

>>18003 The Luger is a far cry from a blow-forward design, and it doesn't have a monopoly on this kind of grip. https://invidio.us/watch?v=F1ElpucXu6A https://invidio.us/watch?v=oUWpWaJrJp https://invidio.us/watch?v=TuBt5qEwggQ

>>21419 Fuck no, most security services don't have such nice gear as their uniform. You get a shirt or pullover with the company logo and cheap shit they got off wish.com.
Infantry armor is important for a number of reasons. Most armour doesn't degrade, and so can be kept in re-issue for soldiers in rear echelon positions. Mobility is lost be for rear echelon and mechanized troops this is much less of an issue. Armour provides more defense against shrapnel, which typically covers more area but is less capable of damaging non-vitals- Slivers of metal in your arms and legs totally suck but won't kill you stone dead- for troops in static positions that are likely to come under regular mortar fire this is important because repeated minor shrapnel injuries aren't such a big deal. Troops under direct fire who take hits are often incapacitated, regardless of armor the energy of the round is still likely to break ribs, wind and badly bruise the target. Stopping one bullet isn't much good if the enemy is likely to dump a whole mag into you because you went down in the open. Another issue is injuries caused by ricochet, spalling and debris. If you take a direct hit to a plate carrier, fragments of metal may lodge in your limbs or neck- while this is certainly a better option the benefit is relative. More likeley that being hit by a round is being hit by debris from incoming fire or from ricochet- including from friendly fire. For these reasons completely stopping direct fire isn't the priority. In conclusion, without armour your high tech infantry will get fragged at a much higher rate and the cost would only outweigh the benefit in highly mobile forces.
>>21233 What's the danger of quick death for being stabbed in the lower guts vs being stabbed higher up? I could see that if it's a case where a low stab will very rarely be lethal with reasonably timely medical intervention the choice was to prioritise having fags actually wear it over having full coverage. Isn't the most lethal stabbing motion up and under the ribcage? Bong police routinely wear stab vests. Maybe look into what they use.

Pipe Bomb identification Strelok 05/11/2020 (Mon) 10:09:17 No.21464 [Reply] [Last]
After a series of bomb attacks on turkish shops in Germany attributed to 'right-wing extremism' the culprit turned out to be some german-turkish kurd sympathizing with IS. He was only caught because he boarded a train without ticket but with 10 functional pipe-bombs in his backpack. https://archive.vn/lmeZy http://archiveiya74codqgiixo33q62qlrqtkgmcitqx5u2oeqnmn5bpcbiyd.onion/lmeZy Later more pipe bombs were found in his home and shown on german television. Have you ever seen such a weird design and who typically utilizes this? How were they supposed to be ignited? What are these rods for and why are they fixed with glue on one side? Obviously at least some of his pipe bombs were quite functional and caused substantial damage.

Open file (1.18 MB 1024x801 it was the kikes.png)
The answer is simple, a malice as old as time and a people whom can not help their symbolism.
My first thought was that the rods were used to turn the cylinder to allow grooves to be cut in the body- but they aren't centered. Maybe like >>21477 said the second one is to act like an earth, both rods extend into the explosive and the glue is a crude attempt to shield the casing- but there is no shielding on the opposite rod. A simple answer might be that they were used for positioning the pipes. Another clue might be that Jamal didn't even take the stickers off the pipe, could only be bothered scoring half of them and in fact had no idea what the fuck he was doing. However I think I have worked this out. The steel rod was put into the explosive to keep a hole for the detonators while the explosive set.
>>21473 Most terrorists are fucking dumb. This goes double for anyone doing it as part of an organisation smart people call the shots, they don't do the shit that gets them jailed or killed hence pre-RICO the inability to fuck the American Mafia effectively or who's doing it for a religious or basic political motive because often underlying mental illness/retardism that leads to a dissatisfying life is what causes them to act out with those ideologies as a bit of mental gymnastics to back it up.
