What I do is grab the grip with my main hand so that the middle finger does the most squeezing and the thumb loosely points towards the target. Then I wrap my support hand around the grip so the meaty part by my thumb covers the bare part of the grip and the fingers overlap. Again, both thumbs don't contact the frame or slide but point at the target and the middle fingers do most of the squeezing. That way both hands are pretty high up on the grip to control recoil while keeping thumbs from brushing against the slide or safety or anything else important.

Basically, like this guy (Dave Sevigny).

After Iraq and finially Afghanistan, I think that the US needs to get involved in Mexico and their Drug War, which is turning bloody. There is much we could do to strengthen Mexico politically and economically, but this is /w/ so let's talk about the military aspect. The period of austery that the US military is now facing could be used to our advantage, since weapons and equipment could be supplied to Mexico on the cheap. Most important I think would be the MRAP vehicles that the military is going to quickly find no use for, UAV's, and helicopters. And the experience gained in Afghanistan and Iraq can be applied to the Drug War through the use of SF as advisors or PMC's. I'm not saying that we should get involved directly. But the US created the problem while it is getting worse and we are ignoring it. Any thoughts on other (military and weapons related things) the US could do?

I have an idea, since this is the /w/eapons board, let's talk about what weapons various areas have access to and how they impact the climate of the conflict and the nature of the wars fought there

in africa from what I get, the fighters are much more in the open, and get the drop on government forces often enough, which is in contrast to (previously) occupied iraq and afghanistan

first off our standing army outnumbers their 5 to 1. while numbers is a huge advantage, they obviously have the home-turf advantage.

A few things they lack:
1. a Main battle tank that come even close to challenging the M1 Abrams, much less a MBT to call their own.
2. Any sort of attack Helicopter that can reliably defeat our Armor.
3. Any reliable means of taking out our carriers, which would undoubtedly anchor offshore once their AA capabilities have been cruise-missled to hell.

I believe their only real option, i we were to fully unleash our military on them, would be to mire us in another long and bloody guerrilla war like the ones in the middle east. Its been proven to work to defeat superpowers.

However Their home advantage will work in their favor quite well. From what i can see there are three main axes of attack we can send our troops through.
1. Ft. Hood -> I35 ->85S down the east coast - would be easier with the amount of materiel and manpower readily available at Hood, coupled with the battle group anchored offshore for CAS and other things.
2. El Paso -> 45S: This would be quite a bit more difficult as this sends our 1st armored Div. through the mountains of Chihuahua. And the rhetoric with tanks is: dont send them through mountains. its stupid.
3. San Diego -> 2/15: this sends our marines through sonora, aided by our pacific fleet.

Built an AR15 a month ago. I've only been putting shitty Bear ammo through it so far cause it's cheap and I'm a poor ass college student. My question is: when, if ever, will prices drop back down to ~$350-390 for a case of 1000 decent quality brass cased 5.56 rounds (i.e. PMC, Lake city)?

pic related, it's my AR with unnecessary tacticool shit on it.

Austrian army fag here. We have the Steyr AUG and it has NEVER jammed once while firing live ammunition. The only time when my aug ever jammed was with training ammo
Buy the original from austria.

Ausfag here, not in the army but I have friends who are and they all seem to hate the AUG. From what they've said I think I probably would too, plastic trigger and what not (but then again, I've spent my entire hunting life with an Ansch├╝tz).

Just saw this video and thought it made some really good points. Especially concerning the whole canoe / boat thing. Nice thing is I already have all the motorcycle gear, too. Pic semi related, it's my bike.

In any case, I'd like to have some discussion on this particular topic. Even though the subject matter is a little less than likely to actually transpire it still puts one at an advantage to be ready for such an occurence.

Please, commence!

canoes would be an effective way to move stuff around, but moving the canoe around is the problem. Unless of course you ive near the water.
as far as land transportation, i think a motorized bicycle is pretty versatile. You can pedal it with the engine off for stealthmode, but if you need to GTFO, or just want to get where you're headed a little faster.

Problem with Bane/Batman Urban "war" engagement Sarah Palin 13/01/03(Thu)00:12 No. 14468 [Reply]

File 135716836173.jpg - (92.02KB , 662x412 , Batman-VS-Bane-dark-knight-rises-nyc[1].jpg )

I saw "The Dark Knight Rises" today and I must say as a former combat medic (2nd 78th FA, 3rd ID, US ARMY, Iraq 2006-2007) I was a little let down by that scene. Let's break it down for a second.

Bane's forces consisted of about 300 (the number was dropped at some point in the film, I think when Com. Gordan was feeding the Special Forces guys intel), and they were all indoctrinated members of the League of Shadows (way better trained than the hardest navy seals out there, I would put them at CIA Special Activities Division level intensity). If you watch the scenes pretty closely you can see that they appear very well equipped as well, using various modern weaponry and small unit tactics to clear rooms and approach threats.

Bane then clears out the prison and implies that it contains more than 1000 of Gotham City's hardest criminals, you can see them exiting the prison and it looks like each of them is given at least one AK-47 (or variant) rifle. Even if only half of them sided with Bane thats 500 people with at least 30 rounds at their disposal and a semi modern rifle.

So lets just say that Bane has at least 300 well trained private army soldiers who are willing to die for him and at least 500-1000 criminal mercenaries at his disposal.

Its said in the film that they trapped 3000 of Gotham City's police officers underneath the ground (I would have just killed them all in the blasts) in segmented sections of sewer that were created for this purpose. They were trapped for a time period of at least 4 months surviving on whatever made its way to them in some kind of mole community enviroment, now granted they went down there to take down Bane but lets be serious, they were equipped for police work, even though you see handfuls of swat cops in the mix, they aren't trained as well as your average US Navy Sailor and probably aren't as experienced in urban operations, but we see all 3000 take a full charge against Bane's forces, and they win the engagement.

Discuss.

there's a video from when bullet proof vests were just being released where they wanted to demonstrate the defensive value in front of a live audience. in their ignorence, they decided that live fire would hurt the ears of the veiwers, so instead of the firearm that was provided for the demonstration being used, they simply walked up and stabbed the guy with a kitchen knife.

I'm going to side with the movie here for a few good reasons as to why they would win this:
1)The League of Shadows members were probably not the best trained or disciplined for open combat against superior numbers. Even though they had superior weaponry you have to remember that the 1000 hardened criminals were unlikely to have discipline at all and likely saw the cops and wanted to go kick their heads in physically. The close quarters with the sheer mass of people and would have made live fire difficult, especially since they had no one stationed in the buildings which was stupid.

2)The cops were going to die if they didn't win and they were likely starving and mad as shit after all that time in the dark. Skill didn't factor because for all intents and purposes they were a raving animal mob.
You might say well the criminals were going to suffer too, or the LoS members would die or whatever. They were living fat and happy and doing whatever they wanted until the cops showed up en masse and clearly had no measures taken for defense.

3)Bane's men took no leadership positions and the scene is clearly shown as a brawl. Skill and weaponry are difficult to factor in here, if they mattered at all because there was no opening fire. It was an equal pitched battle because of this.

4)Batman got stabbed where his armor was clearly weak. The joints where the plates meet have no protection. Knives are force multipliers, they react different than bullets but even in that case Indian bitch got the jump on him.
