2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. 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.
So one Survivor is widely acknowledged as a piece of fiction written by a writer of fiction. Ed Darrack has a book about the operation which is much better. Here is how it went:
>"The four-man Navy SEAL reconnaissance and surveillance team inserted on a saddle between Sawtalo Sar and Gatigal Sar (MAP) late in the night of 27 June 2005 and then moved north toward Observation Post-1. Late in the morning of 28 June 2005, the team was soft compromised (discovered by unarmed local civilians) near OP-1, and soon thereafter a team of Shah's men numbering approximately eight to ten in strength (including Shah) ambushed them."
">Shah's attack 'funneled' the team into the northeast gulch of Sawtalo Sar on the Shuryek Valley side of the mountain. The SEALs, who carried a relatively low power (5 Watt) PRC-148 radio attempted repeatedly to establish communication with combat operations centers, but couldn't effectively gain 'solid comms' due to the radio's low power exacerbated by the terrain."

I live in a lolnogun country. Since I was a teenager, I've dreamed of one day moving to a country where guns are legal and getting one for myself.
My country of choice for that used to be the USA, but recent events have made me think that this is going to end sooner or later. Trump might hold the Dems at bay for now, but as soon as a Democrat president hits the Oval Office, guns will pretty much be guaranteed to be made illegal in America.
So... now I need to think about another country where being a citizen allows me to legally own and carry guns there.
So far I just know Canada (a cuck country where I really don't want to go), Czech Republic (doubtful since they're subject to EU regulations), and Serbia (which is a bit of a shithole).
Where's the magic? What am I missing that lets this work? A super light recoil spring so that even handlets and grandmas can work the slide, but reviewers claim it has stupid light recoil. Is it just combination of its size and the locked breech that allows for a light spring? If a heavier spring isn't required, why do almost all other locked breech guns have heavier springs? I can't figure out the fucking gimmick here.
