    2nd Amendment thread

    Call me a cinic but moving away from gun crime to address your Government point, I believe there are 2 reasons why criminals are allowed to get away with so much: 1. Letting the poor steal, stops riots from the disaffected as they still feel they can aquire some things in life (albeit wrongly)...

    2nd Amendment thread

    Isn't the point of security to stop theft? Not sure these are silly feel good measures. They clearly work. US highest rate of gun crime in the world. UK one of the lowest. Not saying either country has it entirely right, but there are things we can learn from each other.

    You don't have to go to the doctor to get diagnosed for it to apply. I'm guessing many people go to the doctor for other things and the doctor notices mental health issues. Over here the fact your doctors records are flagged as a gun owner, means your doctor has to report any concerns as to...

    I did say the situation over there was different and obviously the right to self defence means in the US guns would have to be permitted to be carried loaded.

    Many have mental health issues though. In the UK your doctors' records would stop you getting a gun. The Medical Checks in the UK (taken from the Firearms Application Form) - Not all of these would be an automatic bar. Some conditions in the past or well under control may still allow the grant...

    Your background checks are nothing compared to ours nor your security requirements. Our background checks take around 4 months and include MI5 (CIA) investigations for known connections to terrorists or anarchist groups or organised crime, as well as regular police checks for convictions and...

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    Is 22% faster enough? I don't know. Only you can judge that. Maybe have a check in the CPU vs BI charts for a similar setup to yours camera wise. Looking at that system for $649 it wouldn't cost a disimilar amount to build a system yourself based around the i5-10400 which scores 12,419 vs the...

    .300 Win mag if I'm not mistaken. Guessing you're taking hogs or big bucks. The biggest issue with gun control is not guns but basic background checks and security. Biggest cause of school etc shootings in the US is a lack of firearm security leading to stolen guns or disaffected childern...

    New build 40 cameras 4K , what would you do ?

    I don't think you can get away with 12hrs recording. Great recording when shops open for shoplifters, but any burglaries will be in the 12 hours when the shop is closed. You need 24hr surveillance. No reason why 12 hrs of it can't be motion or trip wire detection so no actual recording...

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    Might be time for a new CPU. I presume you're using a laptop as U processors are designed for low power laptops and are limited to a TDP of ony 15W. If not, interesting a manufacturer would put it in a desktop..... Nearset desktop designated CPU I could find in Passmark CPU charts was an older...

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    Winner is 2mp but not a lot of difference. Colour balance is out on the 4mp camera, needs a slight adjustment to remove the green tinge. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to use either but would gravitate towards the 4mp simply for detail retreival.

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    I always say you can never get too dark with the testing! The way I look at is however it performs in the darkest situation will only get better when you throw some light in there. So the winner in the total dark usually equals the winner with some ambient light added. I dare say there's the odd...

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    Thanks. Obviously too early to decide without proper testing but one thing I notice on the hik is with the motorbike with the red helmet on the seat and the yellow number plate in the left hand shed, you can see some sharp black numbers on the plate (obviously too small in this size pic / view...

    2021 April Dahua Full Color Camera

    Why are the night time samples in BW / IR? I thought the whole point of this camera like the Hik was to enable full colour at night. ATM, I've seen nothing to persuade me toward Dahua when compared to the Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L). To me from what I've seen so far the 8mp Hik is...
