  1. Hey all,

     

    I'm currently trying to find anything official about Denver Colorado. It's not really mentioned in Home of the Brave. I do know that there is a Cybergeneration book on the city but that's only in PDF and is currently unavailable.

     

    Or should I just make my own version of Denver Colorado?

     

  2. Well, basically same here - .177 equals 4,5mm, if memory serves me. Most commercially available airguns are in that caliber.

    That being said, one of the letters in the SoF #2 (coming from a Frenchman) speaks about a H&K weapon (SMG? Carbine? I remember reading it in Polish, so can't be sure there...) in .177 he's using, and which he considers to be providing adequate firepower in civilised areas of Europe. Of course SoF editors have a different opinion, but so did they on "wondernines". The weapon itself was never mentioned in any other material.

     

    On the other hand, we have a 4,5mm assault rifle in Cyberpunk (Militech M31A1). And RL 4,6x30mm H&K is pretty serious ammo, too (though I'd rate it closer to 3d6 damage of the 5,7x28mm myself). The Czechs are said to have developed 4,38x30mm Libra. I'm not mentioning various rifle cartridges in .17, because that's a different kettle of fish...

     

     

    Mike, the 4.7X30mm H&K round is horrible. While it is easily suppressed to the point where you can dump 20 rounds into a terrorist and not wake his buddy in the next tent. You need those 20 rounds to reliably kill the man. That little issue is why some units are moving away from MP7 PDWs. One of these days i should video a side by side of a HK M416C, a FN P90 and a HK MP7. For the most part a short barreled 5.56X45mm Assault Rifle stomps all over the other two weapons.

  3.  

    The FN Five Seven has made a bit more of a splash than folks realize. It's a popular round for military and law enforcement applications and is the official handgun of the Secret Service. I have done some research on the gun and the round and really the standard 5.7 is not any more effective against body armor than a 9mm. The AP ammo for it is VERY effective at getting through body armor. Like you I thought what was basically a rifle cartridge in a pistol would be an AP round naturally. After some youtube research I found several tests had been performed with standard 5.7 vs body armor and its not a magical cartridge that cuts through kevlar like butter. From everything I've read and seen it is a great round and more effective than a 9mm.

     

    As far as I know I do not have any 5.7mm AP rounds. However I do have some rounds loaded with varmint bullets and those do wonders against the local ground squirrels. However i don't think the local coyote likes their squirrel in chunks.

     

  4. I've seen lots of forums I've posted at die over the years; as long as I like cyberpunk I will continue to post about it and create maps I never finish.

     

    Wait you do game maps?

     

    I could use a man of such tallents.

  5. With Shipping containers you can wield on new doors. We did it to the storage containers at work. they all have roll up doors now.

     

    With the type Hanns is referring too one could modify the doors so that the standard closing mechanism is faked and the real one hidden.

  6. Stray,

     

    One of the side effects of the "War" on meth is that several people i know who have breathing problems cannot get enough medication if they are sick to releave their symptoms enough to function. It seem that some of the more effective decongestants are used to make Meth and if you need more than a politically decided arbitrary amount you become suspected of making meth. Same with Opiates and pain killers. I've known people who's daily pain levels are crippling and with some of them the amount of pain killers they need are staggering.

     

    While I do get why there needs to be some regulation on drugs Politicians are regulators go too far. Hell one FDA member may have by blocking medications from being certified for human use killed 10,000+ people.

     

  7. And I just picked up an 'A2 spec "Commando" style upper for my AR15 Pistol. I've been wanting one in 11.5" for a while now. The only problem with it is a 5.5" flash suppressor seemingly wielded on. I've tried break free, I've tried multiple strap wrenches, I've tried a propane torch in case it's soldered in place. So far nothing has worked and the only thing I have to show for it is a crack in the end of the flash suppressor. So it's off to a gunsmith it goes. Worst comes to worse I'll have it cut and rethreaded to a 10.5" barrel.

  8. I managed to get my hands on the tool.

     

    However the nylon recoil spring guide ring on my PTR32P has broke on me. I have a rebuild kit and what is supposed to be a steel RSGR for an HK21(it's too big to fit on a G3 guide rod.) The Choate folding stock I have has a steel G3 guide ring on it and it's much smaller. I had hoped to have been able to get that one up and running again.

  9. I know that feeling Van Atta,

     

    At work they gave us these little first aid kits for the vehicles that are for very minor injuries. The thing of it is that Some of us work with things that will remove entire limbs if one screws up. Plus we have off site buildings that have had security incidents. Hell one of my current co-workers was attacked with a machete in one of the storage facilities.

  10. Mike, it can be hard IRL to get people to carry first aid materials. One recent job I had was at an Abandoned hospital. yeah, fun place as the day started with a security sweep for transients(all of them armed locally). I had already cleaned out the place of still viable first aide material for my own use. None of the company vehicles had a first aid kit in them. Someone managed to slice open their hand on a broken toilet. We cleaned it out with a bottle of rubbing alcohol and bandaged it with paper towels and duct tape. Needless to say that a week latter all the vehicles had a first aid kit in them( a cheap $20 special).

  11. I'm at four active players with two players MIA. One of the MIA players I have been gaming with on Rpol for a couple of years now.

     

    I might be looking for a couple of new players soon.

     

    As for the two idiots shitposting, I can only say. "Fuck off Pussys."

  12. And here I am having too much fun with the thought that a 7.5" AR15 pistol with an Aimpoint and a 40 round magazine is concealable under a long coat. Mind you that it is obvious to the observant that yes I have a weapon under there. that being said in the fall or spring not many people would look twice at someone wearing a coat.

     

    Then again that would be rather extreme. In game it would be more along the lines of someone wearing a coat in order to move a weapon from a stash-house to a job and back. a m1911 is more reasonable for day to day carry and I can do that nine months out of the year without a CCW permit needed.
