Check this out, what do you think, guys?
Maybe cobalt-alloy barrels are actually coming.

Apparently our weaponmakers are also working on it https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/this-russian-company-plans-a-sniper-rifle-that-can-fire-1829496377

Also, wouldn't it be great to have a squeezebore high velocity pistol. It can be smoothbore too given the ranges pistols are normally used at, so cheaper and with higher barrel life.

Still not as much surface area as normal granules. Really, why would they make it the way you're suggesting? What's the advantage?

More powder in the same volume, convenient to reload.
>> No. 109086 ID: e56201
>>109080
It's only convenient to reload if you're only loading one bullet weight in one cartridge. It's less convenient when you have to buy a different pellet for every cartridge and powder charge. How would you even work up a load, buy a whole pack of pellets in every increment just to test a few? And you'd basically have to abandon bottleneck cartridges. And it would still burn slower due to surface area.
>> No. 109087 ID: 6affc4
>>109086
I dunno, it seems like a great option for handloading, instead of having to load with a scale you just stick the right pellet and do he rest. And isn't slow burning powder beneficial for many loads? As for bottleneck cartridges, i thought you open the case up before reloading anyway, if you don't, then yeah, it's not worth it of course.
>> No. 109257 ID: 6affc4
>>109087
Now that I think about it, some people still hunt with percussion revolvers. One could make a replica for smokeless powder that in pellets will be easy and safe to load into the cylinder.

After finish mine and testing it out I've noticed the P80 frame is snug on just about every Glock holsters out there, unless your own using the P80 frame.

After doing some looking and testing Condor and I figure out it's this extra material that's making P80 frame fit snug in Glock holsters.

So time to trim...

Sympathies, AB.

We had a brit visit our shop a few months ago looking for .22lr Colt AR magazines, which he said were legal for him to take back home. He was telling us how difficult it was to get a handgun and how they needed the grip and barrel extensions.

He bought quite a bit of stuff from us, but most of the stuff he wanted was restricted under ITAR. He could the same items (optics, etc.) at home, but they were 2 to 3 times as expensive.

Yeah, it's mental over here on pistols. If I want anything remotely pistol shaped the "easiest" is something like a BP Colt Navy. :/

Yep. We get shafted on shooting gear. Hopefully the post Brexit trade deal will help... but I'm not holding my breath.

As you must train your body, surely you must also train your mind. ITT we discuss books and manuals that are essential for any kommandos library and study. You do have a study, do you not? These should be books written by the experts in the field, books of first hand knowledge to be passed on to the next generation. Experiences of the masters of firearms, practitioners of death, the soldiers of fortune, and the inventors of these tools we have come to hold so dear. Bring out your library lists. TMs and Prints are less of a priority in this thread.

Josef "Sepp" Allerberger was the second most successful sniper of the German Wehrmacht and one of the few private soldiers to be honoured with the award of the Knight's Cross.

In this harrowing memoir, Allerberger provides an excellent introduction to the commitment in fieldcraft, discipline and routine required of the sniper, a man apart. There was no place for chivalry on the Russian Front. Away from the film cameras, no prisoner survived long after surrendering. Russian snipers had used the illegal explosive bullet since 1941, and Hitler eventually authorised its issue in 1944. The result was a battlefield of horror.

What it is like to go to War - Karl Marlantes

War is as old as humankind, but in the past, warriors were prepared for battle by ritual, religion and literature -- which also helped bring them home. In a compelling narrative, Marlantes weaves riveting accounts of his combat experiences with thoughtful analysis, self-examination and his readings -- from Homer to the Mahabharata to Jung. He talks frankly about how he is haunted by the face of the young North Vietnamese soldier he killed at close quarters and how he finally finds a way to make peace with his past. Marlantes discusses the daily contradictions that warriors face in the grind of war, where each battle requires them to take life or spare life, and where they enter a state he likens to the fervor of religious ecstasy.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare by Damien Lewis

Lassen was part of the crew for the first real SOE operation, the theft of a pair of German and Italian supply ships from the neutral Spanish port at Fernando Po. In an exploit that could be straight out of Hollywood, a band of commandoes sailed a pair of tugboats into the harbor at night while the ships' officers were ashore at a raucous party. They blew the anchor chains with explosive charges, locked the crews below deck, and sailed the ships out to sea where they could be legally captured by a British destroyer. And they did it without a single death on either side. The exploits only became bigger and bolder after that, with Lassen and his comrades making regular raids across the English Channel and running a freewheeling campaign of both hit-and-run raids and occupation of Greek islands in the Aegean. These were the quintessential independent Special Forces fighters, operating outside regular military command structures and supply chains, fighting as they saw fit. Lassen eventually because the commanding officer of a large group, and by the end of the war had been awarded the Military Cross three times. His last operation in Italy - where his men were hit with a shattering defeat when pushed into the role of spearheading a conventional offensive - would result in him posthumously receiving the Victoria Cross for his heroism.

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

Thanks dude. I did a bunch of pistol dry fire practice the day before, and it really paid off. One thing, on that last stage with the steel shooting gallery, I could actually feel the difference in weight and recoil as my magazines emptied. I basically counted off the last 3 rounds before the slide locked back. Never noticed that before. Shit happens when you're in "the zone".

Regarding dry practice, when I was practicing with the pistol I was focusing on my grip and trigger pull... to the microscopic level.

- More tension on the ring and pinky fingers
- Get the beavertail centered into the web of the hand
- The force from the trigger pull is between the first knuckle of the finger and the middle of the web of the hand...

One other thing I practiced the day before was left shoulder rifle handling, including loading the rifle, and reaching behind my back to get the magazine on my left hip. That went so well at 1:28 in the video it's hardly noticeable.

If you've got a long drive, check out the Primary and Secondary modcast on Tactical Gamers. They're a bunch of MIL/LEO guys who got into competitive shooting to grow as shooters. One of the things they discuss is that competitive shooting does wonders for your "processing speed", and how instinctual handling of the gun frees your mind to process your situation and surroundings.

Ernest Langdon is on the modcast and describes his first USPSA grand master win. He said it was the slowest run he's ever had. Then when they read the time, he beat everyone. But in his mind, everything was in slow motion.

That's how big a hassle it is.

You might get the old tube out with no fuckups, and you might get the new one in as well as the old.
