Hi there all.

Its been quite a while , one car crash, various encounters with law and here I am. On night shift in a business/pleasure hotel with a shitty bistro attached to it.

Things are difficult although I'm a nubile 34 year old guy, I never remember easy times. Happens when you always vote cronyism and political islam.

Theres a trend of change though.Good or bad? Too early to tell. Atheism and Deism is sky rocketing, so in a few years, there might be a significant amount of population.


Also enrolled in a Truck licence course. Planning to drive about half , maybe one full year in Turkey , then moving to either Nederlands or Germany on a worker visa.Trying to build a life upon rubble is hard but pleasant work.

So , how about you? How all of you doing?

Manufacturer: DCD Protected Mobility
Service: US Army
Engine: Mercedes Benz OM 906 LA 6.4L six-cylinder turbo diesel
Speed: 31 mph
Range: 500 miles
Armament: none
The Husky MK III VMMD is a single occupant mine-resistant landmine and IED detection vehicle. Combat proven around the world since the early 1980s, the Husky is a unique landmine and IED detection vehicle that is blast survivable, overpass capable and field repairable. Suitable for use in both rural and urban environments, the Husky facilitates fast and efficient route clearance by creating safe passage for military convoys and civilian vehicles.

Each Husky has a detection ground penetrating radar array mounted under the vehicle that is deployed during route-clearance operations. If a suspected explosive is detected, the system marks the spot on the ground for follow-up interrogation by either the Husky, Buffalo or RG-31 MRAP fitted with an interrogation arm. https://www.military.com/equipment/husky-vehicle-mounted-mine-detection-system

That engine itself alone would survive a direct nuclear attack.

I literally did nothing but change oil, filters and greasing with mine. Still regret selling it.

Also , Euro standards for diesels are utter bullshit.

If you come down to the river,
Bet you gonna find some people who live.
You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money,
People on the river are happy to give.

Big wheel keep on turnin',
Proud Mary keep on burnin',
Rollin', rollin', rollin' on the river.

Aren't metal frames obsolete now? Except for the big super-magnums, all the contemporary automatics use plastic frames. Probably easier to make than filing, grinding and polishing from a hunk of steel.

- Caterpillar 3516 V16 3500 Series 793 haul truck mining diesel engine.
Here’s a picture of a Caterpillar 3500 series diesel engine. This engine is a 3516 which came out of a 793 haul truck. The 3516 means it is a V16 cylinder engine. That’s eight big cylinders down each side of the engine. This engine was just removed from the dump truck and replaced with another engine. This engine will be going in for a complete freshen and rebuild to the authorized Caterpillar CRC (component rebuild center).

For a robot that hoards images and articles as much as you do, I'm always surprised when you display that your understanding of firearms and politics is as superficial as it is.

Still I can't disapprove of your willingness to learn and discuss. Keep it up bats.

Plastic frames are quite complex in chemistry and in the joining of the metal frame rails and other critical steel parts that actually accept the slide and barrel. It would be possible to buy chunks of plastic and cut out the features required to make a firearm, but the plastics available that could be used are often not fiber-filled. Fiber filled anything eats tooling much worse than even the most unfriendly of steels. Furthermore, plastics that aren't fiber filled are kinda shit, speaking in mechanical properties, so it wouldn't last very long. Steel and other alloy frames are quite common in a variety of handguns of all shapes and sizes, and they still offer benefits over plastic frames. Again, benefits are relative and all things in firearms are compromises.

If I was making a pistol from basic tools, I would use aluminum. Even weaker grades of aluminum are as strong or stronger than the best plastics, it's incredibly easy to machine even with rudimentary tools, plentiful, and relatively cheap.

Its all about cost effectiveness, at least here. There are polymer knock offs , most of them are excellent quality, but You can find a east german or bulgarian lathe and mill for peanuts compared to injection molding set up.

I do use aluminum for frames. Easy to work with and lets me save on drill bits , boring and rifling small pistol barrels quite taxing on a ghetto chink drill lathe.

The plastic you are referring sounds more like plastic resin reinforced and infused with fiberglass. Some plastics have been reinforced with wood fibers and even cotton and asbestos (an East German car called the Trabant that had body panels from plastic mixed with recycled cotton from old Soviet coveralls that was truly horrible). I remember a Bakelite compound for experimental Armalites were infused with a fine mesh of steel wires, but I have not read that fiber-reinforced polymers are used with contemporary pistols.

The actual composition of polymers used in pistol parts and frames are proprietary and closely-guarded trade secrets of the manufacturers, so it is difficult to discuss the merits and deficiencies of one polymer over another. I remember reading about Heckler and Koch introduced the polymer framed VP-70 pistol in the mid-1970s, but the real revolution began with the Glock G17 of 1983. Not only did Glock use plastic material for the frame, it was used for a number of the smaller parts, as well. It seemed to have exceeded the skeptics' expectations as many range Glocks are reported to have had hundreds of thousands of rounds shot by them without incident.

Plastic offers far less tensile strength, making it more susceptible to catastrophic failure than either steel or aluminum. While over-pressure cartridges can damage steel or aluminum framed pistols, there are many more reports of polymer-framed pistols suffering explosive destruction, due to the material itself failing. These instances are relatively rare, considering the sheer number of polymer pistols sold, but the numbers are still significant. https://www.chuckhawks.com/pistol_construction_materials.htm

For many, plastic is the way to go as it offers corrosion proof construction, light weight, durability and lower manufacture cost. But there have been notable failures of polymers that have dissolved when electric tape has been applied to them, or those that split or crumble under firing pressure. And some people just hate the sharper recoil felt from lightweight polymer firearms.

Yeah, I would probably prefer to use aluminum especially if I was more familiar with metalworking.
