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.

Sleep-Away Camp for Postmodern Cowboys

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/21/magazine/sleep-away-camp-for-postmodern-cowboys.html

The men of Team America were missing an assault rifle. “Everybody pulled a rifle, right, guys?” Eric asked. A 38-year-old ex-Navy lieutenant, he had blond hair to his shoulders and a few days’ worth of deployment stubble.

Everyone agreed that the Canadians would be tough. They were from Canada’s Special Operations Regiment. Recently back from a tour in Afghanistan, they sported combat beards, intimidating tattoos (Revelation 6:8, “And behold, a pale horse: and its rider’s name was Death”) and the kind of burly frames that come from carrying big guns over tall mountains for weeks at a time. “They look like the dudes from ‘300,’ ” a member of one of four U.S. teams said. Another said, “They look like werewolf lumberjacks.”

I haven't found any laws regulating the carrying of hatchets on your person in Texas. I may start doing this. Any thoughts other than that OP is a pretentious wanker?

I'm just bitter because I can't carry my OKC-3S.

I'm not sure where to post this so i guess here is fine.
Would chloroform be a good weapon to take someone out?
A friend of mine got me curious about it when he said i should have put chloroform on my gloves to take down some fat guy from behind, but I'm not sure if it'd be a good idea since it may be lethal and to be honest, killings not my specialty.
i've tried google and it's yielded no results.

I have been interested in purchasing a bow for myself for purposes including, but not limited to:

Learning to properly operate a bow, hobby/relaxing activity/target firing (I can't fire a firearm on my property, though I'm in the woods,) and bow hunting.

Would anyone here have an estimate on the initial financial commitment and/or correct way to go about acquiring a right proper bow for a beginner?

I have fired a bow before; not well, but I get the basic mechanics and such.
I live in Pennsylvania, if it matters.

Sarah Palin 13/05/05(Sun)06:50 No. 14708

I'm into archery a bit myself and have a recurve bow of my own. When just starting, you should figure out whether you prefer to shoot with a recurve/longbow or a compound bow, you could find a local archery club, where people might let you try out their bows, or many outdoors stores will allow you to test out a bow in their range to see if you like it. Generally, recurve/longbows are a bit cheaper ($150-200 for a good starter bow), while compound bows start at around $300. The learning curve on recurve/longbows is a bit higher, so you will probably need more practice to stay good with it. Compound bows on the other hand are a bit easier to learn, and allow you to use a heavy draw weight much more easily. In general, target shooters prefer recurve bows, while hunters prefer compound. To buy a bow, it is probably easiest to find a large sports/outdoors store like bass pro shops, but you will probably get better service and more knowledgeable staff at a smaller store or a shop dedicated to archery.

Greetings, /w/. I am looking into purchasing two firearms for two different purposes:
One for home/self defense, and one for hunting.

First, a little background. I have some military experience, and shooting is not something I am totally unfamiliar with. I have fired rifles before, ranging from a measly BB gun to fully automatic carbines. I have only fired a handgun once. My experience with shooting is, overall, amateur. I can currently land an overall poor average of 36/50 body shots (at 25 yards), and when I purchase a firearm, I intend to practice until I can raise that average up to 49/50, then beyond.

For a home defense, I was thinking about getting a handgun, preferably something with good stopping power, low recoil, and it shouldn't take too long to load seeing as basic gun safety dictates that you keep your firearms unloaded when you aren't using them. I was looking into getting a double action revolver for this purpose (I admit that I'm a bit of a romanticist for the old west, but I don't want to sacrifice functionality for aesthetics), like a S&W or perhaps even an H&R. It shouldn't be too heavy either, considering that my fingers are bony and a heavy handgun would probably be uncomfortable for me. I was also wondering about the advantages and disadvantages between five and six chamber cylinders, any info on this would help greatly (other than the obvious "one fires more bullets" jive). I wouldn't mind getting a semi-automatic pistol either, but I'd rather have something more powerful than a 9mm if I opt for one of these instead of a revolver.

For hunting, I'm feeling inclined toward a more basic rifle, one which has a shorter barrel, lighter weight, and carries no less than 4 rounds. My primary game would be deer and rabbits. I have little experience with bolt action rifles, so if I do get one, I would have to familiarize myself with it first. I feel that I should mention that I have more experience with iron sights over scopes as well, and any information on a comparison of their advantages and disadvantages would be much appreciated.

For home defense i suggest the Taurus Judge Magnum with a 3" barrel and rhodesian jungle specialty rounds. You can also shoot .45 LC from it or the 2 1/2 -3" .410 ammo

One point: if you live in "high density housing" it's still quite possible to kill your neighbors with even light buckshot (#4), if you do not have exterior walls. Two sheets of drywall can stop birdshot, but birdshot may not penetrate to the vitals of very large or heavily clothed assailants past a very short range.

I will be sure to consider it, but it looks like more of a novelty than a practical weapon to me.

This is very helpful. I find myself travelling between the city and suburban areas a lot.

Thanks for the info guys, keep it coming, the more the better.
