2019-08-19 New scrapers are in the progress of development, with promising results on /wsg/. On behalf of all archivers, unless Asagi is replaced, as 4chan grows we are all are in grave danger under the strain of deep software inefficiency and unsustainable costs (like fireden). More details here.
2019-09-02: The old frontend server had its issues fixed by the provider, but we may still want to move to it to our backend server to cut costs and reduce reliance on an increasingly overprovisioned host. We may be able to scrape more boards if funding and more efficient scrapers are provided for expansion. Donations to our site would help in case of image storage failure.
Please refrain from spamming the ghostposting system or it may not be around for long.

Can we talk about the effects this could have on handgun doctrine for police and people who concealed carry if other manufacturers copy the body panel design that this uses?
>body panels can stop 115 grain 9mm at 10 meters
>115 grain 9mm will lose more velocity from trimming .5" off the barrel than it would from traveling 10 meters
>if this test was done with a Glock 17 or other full size handgun, then that means the body panels are capable of stopping bullets at the muzzle from a Glock 19, assuming a bullet will penetrate inside of 10 meters from the barrel length they tested and they didn't just test it at 10 meters
>anything less than a perpendicular impact, which is a very likely scenario on a vehicle, will result in a failure to penetrate inside 10 meters from the barrel length that they tested again if it does in fact penetrate inside 10 meters otherwise
>going with heavier 9mm bullets won't help because, as we've seen with AR500 body armor vs M193, velocity is king
>if the body panels can stop 9mm then they're also going to stop .40 S&W and .45 ACP from a similar size gun since you can expect a similar amount of energy except spread out over a larger frontal area which makes a bullet easier to stop
If other companies copy the body panel design that this uses, then what are the chances of us seeing a significant change in what people carry? Current vehicle body panels offer no protection whatsoever as even 00 buckshot from a shotgun can reliably penetrate a door despite each pellet weighing only 55 grains and being .33 caliber. Is .357 SIG going to make a comeback? Will 10mm stop being just a meme? Will we finally get a compact or subcompact pistol in 5.7x28mm?

Going to a big gun show tomorrow with $800 in my pocket.

What should I be on the lookout for?

Already have decent AR, 45, and 9mm

80% STEN

No.43248255 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I have been pondering lately about 80% firearms, there getting cheaper and more viable as time passes. You will mostly see 80% lowers/kits for pistols and ar's. and i keep coming to the conclusion of "how can we make it cheaper?". The short answer is the STEN design. the kits could sell for 500 giving room for profit margin. tooling and cost for manufacture would be less than 200. lower redesigned for 80% config. have a cool historical carbine for less then a built parts kit, and for pistol config have brace points.

Japan weapon laws (Sasumata)

Just bought this in Japan, and as far as I know the design is non-lethal. I can't really find anything specific law wise towards this. Does anybody here know anything?

Who polices elite units?

No.43247592 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
So imagine if a unit like Delta started acting like a criminal gang (ha ha, just imagine such a thing). Who goes in to arrest them, normal military police? Because I can imagine an elite unit being very tribal and take a dim view of one of their own being taken by pencilneck MPs. Or is there some super-MP unit for such occasions?
