    North Korea, you so crazy!

    Someone sent me it without context, so I'd have to do some digging to find the source.

    I'm going to assume they're flares for what seems to be an underbarrel flare gun.

    They must have updated its BR and I missed it, was 2.7 when I tried playing it.

    Why they decided the SAu-40 needs to be a higher BR than the StuG A despite being worse in every way, I'll never know. I guess it makes people want to drop money on skipping it though, so that's probably it. Give them money to skip the crappy low tier tanks so you can give them more money to make your high tier tanks playable without hours of soulless and painful grinding.

    Looking around more, that's a Moroccan proof mark that I was wondering about and now it's only left me confused. My pistol is the Type I version and everything points to this being late 1944 or early 1945 production (round safety lever, latch under slide, the S/N itself, S/N in a machined out trench). The serial numbers aren't documented the best, but 103000 is known to be May-June 1945 stuff. Of the 6 other Moroccan MABs I found online, all are postwar Type II pistols with S/N ranging from 106658-117400. I get that there's not really much of a collector's market for uniquely marked MAB model D pistols, but I still find it interesting nonetheless.

    It's raining baguettes! For the approximate price of a dollar bill hi point, I've gotten myself a second rather interesting French pistol. Judging by some of its features, like the uniquely shaped safety lever and its serial number, I'm suspecting that this was a pistol made after the liberation of France and for the French military, but prior to the end of the second world war. Perhaps someone here might know the answer, but I've not got an idea of what that marking on the trigger guard is though. Haven't bought any books on this gun.

    PSA in case any of you haven't noticed it yet, but you can use those points in their online store too. Like right now, instead of giving gaijin my actual money for more eagles or a B1 Ter, I can just use those points instead. It's 1:1 with USD, which is crazy since I was selling those plane crates for 0.7 Gaijin thingies right when the event had started (they're about half that now).

    Russian mall catches fire, killing at least 64 And from the first two things google pulls up, you'd think Putin himself did it too probably!
  11. And that's the one thing stopping me from just stocking up right now, I've not got a place off the top of my head that I can think of to shoot it off, I know the range I go to doesn't like them
  12. Not sure where to put it or how long the sale will go on, but there are some really cheap 5.56 and 7.62 NATO orange and purple tip tracers for dirt cheap here. I don't follow prices of 7.62, but even for normal 5.56 stuff is really cheap. http://www.theamericanmarksman.com/556x45-Nato-Ammo_c_147.html

    I've been playing since before they added tanks, I still don't really have any progress into tier 5s, though that's probably got a lot to do with how I don't play high tiers because of the module grind and my lack of a premium account.

    I think I neglected to post pics of it, but I did end up getting that super vepr about a month ago, glad I did since it seems they've gone up almost $100 since. Spent yesterday evening inhaling plastic dust and figuring out how to get a saiga .223 mag to fit in my vepr. They only make 5rd and 10rd mags for the vepr and I wanted something with a little more dakka. Still need to take it to the range, but from the seven rounds of .223 I found laying around and cycled through the mag, seems to work great so far, no hiccups yet. Feels like it fits as firmly as the factory vepr mags do, the only issues with the saiga mags is they come too wide with too large of a mag catch, both things a dremel can solve. Unlike the factory mags, this 30rd saiga mag has last shot hold-open too. I've got a couple other saiga mags laying around to mod now. Additionally, I think I'm turning French. I don't recall if I've posted my MAS 36, but a quarter of the guns I own now are French. My latest addition is a cute little pistol that costs more to shoot than to buy. Impressed with how well it feels in my hands to the point that I'm now looking for a gun that's as close to it as possible, fires a common cartridge, and is <$1000. Seems the previous owner chose to remove the paint on it, but it's still got a nice parkerized finish underneath so it's not too bad. Grip on the opposite side has a small chip in it, but it's got a lanyard loop too. It is a fun gun to take apart though. Some guy on YouTube was complaining about the barrel and recoil spring assembly being annoying to take out, I suspect that the issue isn't with the gun there, took me just a couple seconds on my first try going in blind.

    And that's precisely the issue from my experience. They're either against guns on an emotional level (they're scary!) or they've not bothered to really educate themself on the matter, both of which could fall under the "not really making sense" part. Other agendas is what you'd expect here, some people just don't like people owning guns for political reasons or whatever. Granted these mass shootings are no bueno, but from the debates I've found myself in, people calling for gun control seem to be hyperfocused on those instead of where the vast majority of gun violence comes from. They do a good job of sidestepping that fact even when I try to bring up that point. You can't just use gun violence numbers against me in a debate and then ignore the cases actually causing those numbers!
