2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

USA immigration

No.36117001 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Ausfag here, Is it almost impossible to immigrate to the US? From what I can find the fastest way to get a green card is through marriage? I doubt I'll be able to find a job, I don't have any exceptional skills, only intermediate knowledge of machining and mechanical engineering and a passion for firearms. Is my dream of becoming a firearms manufacter just a pipedream?

Unconventional weapons for unconventional warfare

No.38405302 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I'm reading "Fry the Brain: The Art of Urban Sniping and its Role in Modern Warfare by John West", and was fascinated by some unconventional ideas on sniping.
One of which being sniping with a .177 air rifle. He postulates that these rifles are adequate for taking down man sized targets using a video of a man killing a 200 pound hog as anecdotal evidence.
Another one being a handgun, such as a Glock 17 with a scope resting on a stable surface/bipod being used for short-range sniping. He claims that concealment and maneuverability can make up for its lack of accuracy.
A third unconventional idea was using a shotgun firing slugs for sniping up to 100 yards by referring to a UVF-contract killer as anecdotal evidence.

You can find the book on the murdercube if you want to take a look. I myself purchased the book as it was relatively cheap. It'll probably get you on a list.

What are your thoughts? What other unconventional ideas for unconventional warfare may you propose? A compound bow/crossbow? All ideas are good ideas, gentlemen.

Pic related.

I work at a newspaper (not The Capitol), and we're not allowed to have guns. What's your advice on how to protect and defend myself from crazed gunmen? I was thinking maybe put a kukri in my desk drawer.
