    Will 2021 see a new pistol buy?

    One thing about pistols especially in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, is that the pistol was an execution weapon. You can point rifles, MG's etc at people and they don't get the point - even if you fire a few shots near people -but- you get your pistol out - and they immediately know...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    Use the money to get the Chechens rolling again… I mean we may as well get the Muslims killing Russians again, tends to disrupt stuff.

    I suspect a lot of stuff is going to OT (Operational Testing) in the Ukraine. Look at the origin of some of the flights from the US…

    I’d suggest based on German attitude currently that maybe some of German should be ceded;) That may refresh them…

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I’m not a fan of isolationism, I think it is short sighted and hurts America in the long run. Basically I’m a big fan of fighting wars in other peoples homes and not mine. But, I also think that at a certain point, that everyone needs to pull their own weight. Maybe losing a bit of Europe...

    Ukraine - Superthread

    No one is going to try to bend US over on the USD and switching, as we just make take our ball and go home, and everyone else likes to complain about us, but they enjoy a lot of safety from the weight of our balls.

    Harry and Meghan to step down as senior royals

    The major rub is that because who he is, and who he would visit - that external CP will not be appreciated within the window of the Royals bubble, unlike other UK visitors who most likely wouldn't be visiting the Crown - he would. The only viable option is to accept what was offered Pro Bono...

    An old piece of iron - C1A1

    I'd strongly recommend the second link I posted - it is a history of the small arms ammunition debate from pre Hague up to current realities. At 156 pages it is a bit of a read, but I think it is important to understand the what any why's that got us to this point.

    He's going to step on his dick. He's going to get a call from the Ukraine - and then he's going to need to look at his chips, how few he has, and if he's willing to lose them.

    Harry and Meghan to step down as senior royals

    They are in the US, and knowing a few folks that did CP work after retirement, you can get approval in the UK for a US Security team to be armed for private individuals (the same way incidentally one can get it in Canada). The fact is this is a unique situation because of whom he is, and what...

    An old piece of iron - C1A1

    Agreed - our enemies aren't getting bigger at all. In fact a skinny person in baggy close is a terrible target - especially moving as it is easy to misjudge the body and miss - poking holes in the back end of the clothes.

    Ukraine - Superthread

    I'm not sure Russia really wants to see if NATO will react. Unlike the Crimea - US forces are not in Afghanistan or Iraq, and thus available for combat deployment. As far as cards go, we have a robust Int and SOF apparatus that can turn up the heat on Russia, both inside and their border...

    Below are some older Open Source ammunition Gel tests results. These date to 2004 - I have newer ones but they are FOUO, and beyond.

    An old piece of iron - C1A1

    Very few Armies do these days It is all about the construction of the bullet with regards to the velocity at impact. In 7.62x51mm NATO (.308 Winchester) the shape of the bullet, the construction of the bullet and the velocity generally result in a bullet that impacts a target, and after about...
