Sooo considering getting one of these just as a throwaway gun, figure if I defend myself I won't be too hurt if they take this thing away.

They are bad. If you're going to clap someone (in self defense) then you might as well get a proper pistol like a Glock, S&W, CZ, etc.

The 500 or 600 dollars you're going to lose by having your gun taken away will be nothing compared to all of your legal fees.

Edit: if you kill somebody with that thing, regardless of the circumstances or your racial appearance, the court will think you're a thug ass nigga and throw in the hole 4 lyfe!

Depends on the state, CO is still gun friendly for now, that's going to disapear fast with our new libshit gov and all the assholes from commiefornia out here.

AK ID MT, states like those are still awesome for gun rights and self defense. Also, if all else fails just having a throw away gun to plant on a thug is always a good idea, that or a cheap stiletto.

I feel a lot of times like we're fucked; like on state and federal levels we're one election away from losing our rights, but there is hope if you're politically active, practice shooting often, and take new friends shooting instead of arguing with others about gun control. That's what I do, because there is nothing more special in this world than firearms.

And if I can't persuade someone, then they're just a pussy, I guess, and are also incredibly boring, and I want to have nothing to do with them.

This is one of the main reasons why I want to head north, besides being one election away from gun confication, our economy is going to tank. Once people really start defaulting on student loan debt taxes will have to go up to pay for it. We know we'll never see social security, medicare nor any of the other things those before us had, we had our future taken from us. That being said, I know damn well a lot of states, esp. those up north and the north east are sick of uncle sams shit, once the economy tanks I could see states like Alaska wanting to leave the union, they don't need the lower 48s. Any decenters they have would be treated like the loyalists were in the War for independence, shot. People are naive, they forget how the US has treated traitors, the civil war, the cold war, if you were pro/anti slave, commie whatever you got blackballed hard and had your life ruined if you were lucky.
Also, we'd have so much chaos down here they would not have enough boots to put on the ground, that's assuming the federal gov't could afford to pay troops. Containing that much civil unrest is expensive. Think what also scares me is someone like Russia moving in, promising to help states that want to split military aid in the form of firearms and ammo.

Kinda doubt it would get that bad but who knows, people are so pissed off now it's not funny. NJ just told the govt to fuck off, not one mag has been turned in. Cops aren't dumb, minute they start door to door gun confiscations their families will become big fat targets. That being said, that's the other reason why I want to leave, I don't feel like sticking around when the economy tanks and places have to cut back on things like the police and fire department, Stockton did that and it didn't end well. In there case I know it was police, not so sure about fire department but you get the idea....

The only thing about northern states is the lack of work, and especially Montana, where my family is from. The winters are cold and brutal, people struggle to make a living, and it's all-around depressing. People always need nurses though, which it sounds like you're taking up.

I've still thought about going back there, but I don't like my family, so it'd be really hard to go there especially if I wanted to remain a stranger. I'd also make significantly more with my qualifications living where I do now instead of going back.

I'd almost recommend coming to Nevada because we have a lot of public land to shoot on, but we're becoming another destination for Californians to come and fuck our shit up. We've had our fair share of political victories in this state in recent years, but our governor, senate, and the population of Democrats that live here will never take a break.

Same in Alaska, right now they're in a bust cycle. Thing is, up there there's plenty of work for oil/gas, engineering and medical so i'm good. Housing is cheaper too, also food here is getting so fucking expensive and the wages aren't going up.

Already know about the commiefornians moving out there, look at CO that's what you have to look forward too sadly. Would think those idiots would get it, piss off law abiding gun owners and all we do is hide our shit. We see your daughter getting raped we won't do anything, besides not wanting to risk a felony over an illegal firearm there's the resentment against liberal transplants for not only voting our gun rights away, but having no respect for our culture and way of life.
Like I said, this is one thing that makes me really nervous about things down here, people are pissed, no ones really civil anymore and when shit gets to the point that people feel that the gov't doesn't care about them, they start taking things into their own hands and that usually ends badly.

My favorite was the Springfield Armory Champion. It had a 4" slide and bull barrel on a full-sized frame making it only slightly larger and heavier than a Makarov and still able to take 8-round Kimber Tac-mags.

I think the Springfields are higher quality then the RIAs. Maybe RIAs highest end and springfields lowest end are on par.

Though, RIA was making huge improvements, havent handled a new one in prob 9 months so maybe they are catching up.

RIA is a better value.

I prefer SIG 1911s.

Here's another interesting find by Gun Jesus. A Type 99 Nambu machine gun re-chambered for .308. Though Ian didn't go into the details of how a machine gun like this was volunteered for the procedure, apparently enough Type 99's came back with soldiers after WWII to make such a procedure reasonable.

A Japanese machine gun that requires hand loaded ammo based on .30-06 cases is pretty much a lost cause. I don't think the Type 99 was so popular that one or two conversions would be a crime. It's doubtful it would become a trend among owners even if that meant their Type 99 would be a safe queen.

I don't understand why they'd do this instead of buying AK's from Arsenal or Kalashnikov Concern or something.

The lack of a bolt hold-open and a rearward charging handle that you'll have to pull every time you charge the weapon are a total deal breaker.

Ian didn't note how many of those Colts were actually sold. I agree with your basic observations regarding the flaws in the Colt rifle but it could have hinged on something political rather than anything else. There might have been an anti-Russian phase going down in Yemen that year.

Given the physical climate in Yemen, the last gun I'd hand my troops there would be an AR pattern rifle.

Fair warning: while this is a borderline /pol/ post, the news coming from Washington state this week is important and relevant to gun ownership across the nation.

There is a lot to read here, but the take away is that the US Supreme Court has settled the right of Law Enforcement Organizations to refuse to enforce legally questionable laws.

A number of news articles focusing on some Washington state sheriffs has awakened hope that the laws passed over the past few years there are being addressed legally in court and these sheriffs are refusing to enforce them until they are settled in court!

Everyone knows the more complex a thing is, the more likely it will break down.

One of the reason for America loosing in Vietnam is they decided to sell off all the proven, rugged and reliable Browning Automatics as surplus, which largely ended up in the hands of the Vietnamese, wheras the newfangled M14s and M16s jammed if you breathed on them.

At the very least, they need to use free software in their weapons and avoid Apple and walled garden abominations like the plague.

I used to track British gun ownership and shooting news. It only got worse every time I read a new article.

Back in the day one could join a shooting club in England, cross the channel to France and shoot there under French law. I have no idea how the EU anti-gun laws may have changed French laws in that regard.

It's a sad state of affairs when a nation refuses to trust their citizens to defend themselves in the face of terror at home.

This is just the latest of hundreds of confiscations that don't get reported in CA. This isn't a situation that's going to change in the foreseeable future given the political reality of the state. What I'd love to see is for conservatives to move back into CA en masse and force a shift to the right politically. It's not going to happen, though.

People polled on their plans to stay or leave the state is leaning hard on leaving, the last poll claiming over 53% would move to another state today.

While I tend to agree that you have the right to that option, the logic of giving someone with little experience a semi-auto with forward slide serrations leads to bad habits that could result in far worse wounds. I've always been drilled on keeping all body parts away from the muzzle of a gun and with good reason. People have shot their hands under the wrong circumstances.

Drill on grasping the slide from the rear. Keep all parts of your hand away from the ejection port when racking the slide.

This image is pretty self explanatory.

I'm getting my slide milled out for an RMR. During dry fire practice, I was assessing whether or not I should get front slide serrations, as the red dot might obstruct your hand from getting a proper grip on the rear of the slide.

I'm not the best, but I'd venture to say I'm a decent shooter because I practice regularly. But talk is cheap and all men say they're good at everything.

My drilling is in the form of a C or U shape with the thumb on the right side of the slide and, in my case, the left trigger finger over the serrations on the left side. This avoids any issues involving weird long slide semi-autos like those on S&W target pistols (which I used to own), red dots or scopes.

Good luck with your project.
