So they introduced a bill that will die in the senate.

~yay

I would be interested to read it and see if it opens the NICS to non-ffls, thats the only reasonable way for it to work.

While the bill might have a very slim chance passing the Senate, it is pretty clearly not going to pass the Supreme Court should President Trump give it a pass like he did on bump stocks.

Lines have already been drawn. The democrats are clutching at straws by flooding the House with bills that are patently unconstitutional. Trump knows well enough that he can't give where he knows the risk of loss is far too high.

What, are you some gun toting militiaman neckbeard weirdo? Individuals should not have the right to defend themselves, sweetie. When citizens use lethal or less-than-lethal force against one another, the state no longer holds a monopoly on violence that it distributes among its citizens as punishment for the commission of their crimes. If the state is not the sole distributor of violence, it'd be all anarchy. There'd be no law and order.

>>42073233
If it contains the word "assault" it's scary and I don't like scary things, so yes, it's an assault weapon and you shouldn't be able to have it, because I am a sensible person and I know what's best for (you).

>the state no longer holds a monopoly on violence
If your reading comprehension was above a second grade level, you would realize that's what the Second Amendment was written for. The Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that citizens have the right to self defense in the absence of law enforcement, which is pretty much 95% of the time. Castle Law and Stand Your Ground are settled laws.

If you're scared of a black rifle that equalizes the chances that your effort to violently assault someone will fail, that is the desired effect. This isn't about overthrowing the government any more. This is about the right of self defense in absence of authority. Don't like that idea? Too bad. It's the law and won't be changed anytime soon.

I have a grand total of one (1) ten-round AR mag. A Lancer I got to see if they were as good as the hype which I use only for match-grade ammo.

The Lancers feel flimsy but I got 3 of them a couple of weeks ago and haven't used them yet. It feels like the same exact kind of plastic that B&T uses for their MP9/GHM9/APC9 magazines.

The way that the B&T feed lips flex make me extremely afraid of breaking them when I load them. The lips are also incredibly easy to ding up and have no steel reinforcements. Maybe the plastic is supposed to flex and it's no factor in the durability, but the steel reinforcements on the Lancers give me some peace of mind.

NY CA MA NJ CT ect...

What would you own?
Legally I mean.

I was thinking an FNH Fiveseven and a Tikka T3x in .223 ... ether the TCR or the lite.

Maybe, idk about all of them, but assuming it is, i still wouldnt pick it tbh.

Gun isnt very accurate. I would rather have something that could reach out as a long gun, esp if the hand gun could hold its own within 200 yards.

And even though Ruger "made it better" a few years ago, it still sucks, esp for the absurd amount of money they want for it.

It's weird if you look for that fact on Ruger's website. Normally they have information regarding legality in NY, Mass. and CA. None of the five round versions listed on their website have that info now. Weird.

As for the accuracy issue, that dates back to the original A Team series where it was a widely used prop for all the actors. The fucked up pencil barrels overheated in three rounds, leading to the worst accuracy from a production rifle ever. Between the accuracy problem and the ever increasing price on them, the Mini-14 should be avoided if you plan to hunt with one. It's strictly a wall hanger now and a very expensive one at that.

That's how I know Mikie is a gun enthusiast with "real" taste. When I see that someone has a collection exclusively of Fudd guns, I start to question their loyalty to the second amendment.

That doesn't mean I don't have interest in Fudd guns. I've wanted a Ruger Gunsite Scout in .308 and a .30-30 or .45-70 for a bit now, and my absolute most guilty pleasure is the Single Action Army.

The same reason CNN won't show any valid content that violates their in-house narratives. Like this story for example.

https://www.kusi.com/cnn-requests-kusi-for-local-view-on-the-border-declines-our-reporter-after-finding-out-wall-works/

tl:dr CNN is full of their own shit and expect their viewers to eat it mindlessly.

.40sw is a dying round. You cant give those things away.

Ammo isnt very reasonable ether, for every 3 boxes of 50 .40sw you buy, you could have bought 4 boxes of 9mm.
That makes a difference when your buying 1000 rounds at a time.
And since the FBI and LE are starting to go back to 9mm and the sporting community, aside from maybe plate shooters, never really embraced it, that price isnt going to go down any time soon.

I dont think you would like the recoil of a .40sw ether, picture all the bad parts of 9 and .45 combined haha.

The M&P is a good gun though, just that one is chambered wrong imo.

>>42075334

>>42075563
Every time. Every fucking time.

.40S&W is head and shoulders above basic 9mm NETO. By the time you factor for buying good 9mm +p, you're paying as much per round as .40.

Too many people who know far better than Mk17 have put memes like the short and weak and overpriced round in the dumpster where they belong. Only shoot 9mm if you already have one. Don't go out and buy a new one.

If you already have a 9mm that can handle +p ammo, more power to you. Claiming that ammo makers aren't stepping up with fresh .40 ammo are misinformed or relying on sources that are as biased as CNN.

I love mine and will operate gladly with a round that punches holes as big as factory 10mm ammo. It's the best of all possible solutions.

Get the MP 40. It's on my short list as a Glock beater I'd own. For $450 suggested retail, it's a no brainer.

If you like .40sw shoot it.

>>42075614
Yeah, for a such a small gun. The .45acp shield honestly isnt that bad because of the added weight, but I would still personally stick with a 9mm in a frame that small.

But I would also stick with a full size/compact myself personally over a compact carry. That's a matter of lifestyle though.

Pretty sure Glock dropped the MAP pricing on the G5 which means the G4 and (if you can find one) G3 came down too.

I think I was seeing G4 G19s for around $499 but if there is no retail MAP on them, you could probably find them cheaper.

You could always get a glock 23 and a 9mm conversion barrel from storm lake. Then you wouldn't have to choose. I have a glock 32 .357sig, with a .40sw and 9mm conversion.

I never use the .40sw barrel unless i get some free ammo, cus hey... free ammo!

You cant go wrong with those 2.

And yeah, there are about a million flashlight choices that will fit the rail of a glock 19. Any company would be stupid to make a light that didnt.

Its a matter of the situation, flashlights also telegraph your location.

Its better than a laser for sure.

I keep my flashlight off the gun because 99.9999999999999999% of the time, i need a flashlight, and i dont need a gun haha.

But it clips right on should the need arise.

Pretty much this. I recommend Streamlight. They're good, and not a lot of money. I've personally thought about switching from a TLR-1 to the TLR-7.

Some people tend not to think there's a difference between the Gen 3-4 and Gen 5 triggers, but I think the Gen 5 is the best.

>>42075627
It also blinds people and makes it harder for them to see what you're doing. If you've ever been stopped by police at night a few times and have been made to face the hood of their cruiser with all of their lights blaring, you'd definitely come to learn that light is also a weapon.

It might be best to consider a 300-600 lumen light for home defense. Light has a habit of bouncing back at you, especially in close quarters indoors.

I love my Streamlight protac. I've put that thing through some serious abuse and it just keeps going.

Though, inforce lights are some pretty ruggedly good stuff too, and great batt life. Thats the one thing i dont like about my streamlight, only about 3 hours of batt, but it takes cr123s and AAs so they are easy to replace.

Pretty sure they understand it well enough. It's more a matter of eroding resistance.

From what i've seen directly i blame the NRA for a decades-long campaign to recharacterize our responsibility to be ready to spontaneously form local militias against threats internal or external, as the right to kill animals for fun.

And the central government with its standing army and pet bankers etc don't want us to be either educated as an electorate or armed as potential militia so they pretend they don't know what words mean and most of us are illiterate enough to buy that bullshit.

Hey wow nice earthquake hit right now. Sweet.

another important fact that he pointed out is rather interesting

it's something i forget

the moment every single able-bodied makes it to their 18th birthday you are now apart of the militia

im apart of the militia, you are as well

everyone ITT pretty much is part of the militia

an unorganized militia

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/10/246

where it is pointed out in article 1, section 8 where it says congress can call upon the militia is what makes the military draft perfectly legal

so when cenk says: "what part of your ass is in a well-regulated militia?"

you know the answer

Exactly, and is the basis for the citizen program that gets you a Garand issue.

But, as the guy points out, the militia is distinct from the standing army. If this is the exclusive basis for the draft, it's another example of the words being twisted absurdly to alternate purposes.


"calling" the militia is for times of defensive need and there is no language that allows it to be compulsory or to use it for aggression overseas. Considering the colonists' views on things like quartering of british soldiers, I'm preeetty sure any arguments allowing compulsory service are probably unconstitutional.

When I was in the early years of my adulthood I somewhat resented having to register myself for civil service, but now I consider it a duty that I have no position to dodge or question.

No, the guy had a forgrip on it, which is a terrible idea, causes malfunction by putting pressure on the frame, and made a fulcrum out of your control hand.

Guy who had it was not very smart, but i shot it the way he told me to because it was his.

when he wasn't looking, i shot it in bursts with a regular grip on the pistol and it was smoother and much more controllable.

Day one of SHOT and the only thing that has caught any of my attention is the new Hi-point "C9" its a working title!.

ugh.

Kinda cool its a double stack with plans for higher than 10 round cap from the factory. Possible internal ejector.

Brownells "modern" AR10

New Aimpoint RMR type thing (Acro P1)... kinda cool, fully enclosed RMR, looks durable.

Sig made a machine gun in 338Norma to market to no one.

Ruger Custom Shop 1022 looks cool as hell, do want.

I'm looking forward to more info on the Franklin Armory Providence rifle.

I saw articles about this story a few days ago and have reasonably high hopes for the Gun Owners of America case. If the judges of the state of New York must follow national law as based on settled Constitutional law, other states will be forced to get in line as well. I'm looking at states like Washington, California and, as of this month, Oregon with their new line of NY/CA class anti-gun laws.

Also the army is switching to 6.8 and the FNX45 is replacing the beretta 92...

Idk. I can see them testing it, and maybe fielding a few, but its not standard at all and having a non-nato 1 man machine gun.. Idk.

I dont think it will replace the minimi, because the biggest advantage of a sqaud machine gun is ammo compatibility with the rest of the squad.

Idk, iv been wrong before, but i think this is more of a concept car kinda thing than an actual product to bring to market.

Yeah, that seemed like kind of an afterthought shoe horned in tbh.

An assortment of rubber bullets, a "40mm Super Sock", which I suppose contains the large bean bags also in the pic.

The bean bags and rubber bullets are very soft to the touch, but it must not matter much when they are propelled at high speeds.

Lucky guy, shame the military isn't as good a career choice as it used to be, now more than ever unless you've gone to Westpoint, Annapolis or the Air Force Academy it's risky even as an officer. Even more shocking that they're trying to recruit hipsters in Seattle.
Still, if you get into an academy like that, your set!

Depends, after your first tour they really look to give you the axe, that and not all of rhe skills you learn transfer to the civilian world. Heard stories of medics who had to be retrained as their experience wasnt accepted at hospitals and facilities. IT isn't as bad since certs are certs. Even officers have to watch it, everyones disposable.

Think the real saving grace of the military is it makes it a lot easier to get a govt job. That and the gi bill. Personally id get into it then go crypto/network security then sell my services to whoever wanted them. The us job market is so cutthroat, loyalty isnt a thing anymore.


Considering how vets are treated, the amount that get ptsd and their higher rate for suicide, yeah those are all things I'd factor in before i go in. Also how the VA does go out of their way to screw vets, knew a lot of vets that fought tooth and nail to get what they had.

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!

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.

RIA 1911's are roughly on-par with Springfield Armory in terms of quality.

Looking to get a 1911 after I build an AR. Soooo want one but I'm having to discipline myself, something for CC then a good AR. Love my AK but god damn is ammo expensive nowadays. The USA needs to quit arming the kebab with aks and letting em have all our 7.62x39, that's mine!

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>42081436
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.

I bought the frame and slide separately. It's a G45 slide on a G19 frame. I was a bit surprised that Glock's version of FDE is a very dark brown to the point that it's like a mustard.

>Who are you having mill the slide?

Jagerwerks. I bought the G45 slide specifically because I didn't want to pay Jagerwerks to machine my front slide serrations and put their logo on my gun. I want it to still look like a Glock, not a mall ninja accessory--if that's at all possible for a Glock with an RDS.

I'm having them machine a pistol sight dovetail forward of the RMR. The RMR will mount at the very rear of the slide.

Haha fair enough. I think the glocks look quite natural and functional with an RMR.
>I'm having them machine a pistol sight dovetail forward of the RMR. The RMR will mount at the very rear of the slide.
Normally its set up with suppressor sights in the stock location, RMR forward of the rear sight so you keep the sight radius. But i have seen it done both ways.

So that the dot is the very first thing I see when I present the weapon. I want the iron sights to be only peripheral to the dot, and only there as a backup in the case that the optic fails.

You certainly do lose your sight radius, but I think it'd be worth the trade-off. The iron sights also protect your optic when they sit in the front--that's also a plus.

What difference does it make seeing the dot whether its in front or behind the irons? Its still going to be the big glowing thing in your face, and both will still be in your line of sight.

You wouldnt do it on a rifle.

Dick's Sporting Goods announced today that they are ending sales of sporting rifles. Not that anyone is going to miss Dick's and their partner stores since they ended sales of scary black guns a few years ago.

tl:dr Dick's cocks up. I hope they enjoy going out of business.

At 500 yards? It makes the difference of whether or not you hit the target

Well, if he is shooting a glock 19 at 500 yards he has a lot more to worry about than sight placement.

Anyway, my point is, if both are going to remain in you feild of view anyway, why give up the sight radius of the irons?

Its was less of a critique and more of an honest question.

One that I've actually had time to think about, and the best i could come up with is if the dot is in the very bottom of the screen, it will be over the irons rather than behind them... But then you have parallax issues anyway.

The iron sights will still be in my field of view, but I'll be looking over them instead of through them.

That way, you have a clearer view of the target if you're only focusing on the dot and the target itself, instead of 3 dots from the irons, the red dot, and then the target.

This way, I think shifting the rear iron forward of the optic will make using the optic less confusing because it'll make it less likely to default to using the muscle memory I've developed when using iron sights.

With irons, I find myself doing this:

Focus on target->begin to present weapon->find front sight as weapon comes into view->align front sight with rear sight->confirm they're on target->fire

If I kept the rear irons in the default position and sighted the optic to the irons, I doubt it'd provide much benefit, because you'd be following the same process as using the pistol irons themselves.

The underlying assumption I'm making with my setup is that there will be less steps between presenting and firing the weapon, and it would require me to develop new muscle memory. I wouldn't be as tempted to default back to the irons if the rear iron itself is shifted to a different place, and the optic occupies the original position of the rear iron.

I could be totally wrong with that method, but I think it's worth the experiment.

>>42084080
When I started shooting with an RMR on friends guns, i found that i needed to find the irons to find that dot, and they worked for me as training wheels until i remembered that everything was the same, muscle memory wise, except i need to look in the window rather than at the sights.

I found that looking for the dot, esp on a glock, caused me to go into more of a 1911 style grip angle and the dot would be no where to be found.

I try to keep all my guns the same, and not try to have to learn one thing for one gun, and one thing for another, so i wouldnt want to change the sights too much, because the iron sights on a handgun im always going to consider the primary, at least for now.
The RMRs are designed to work with your iron sights in this way which is why every company put the mounts forward of the iron sights and leaves the sights be (at least for defensive guns). Esp considering that the dot will be projected above the irons so you are actually looking over them, not through them, when using the dot.

But again, im not critiquing, and you are right, it is worth the experiment if you want to do it. If it wasnt for people challenging convention people would still be teaching one handed bullseye shooting for combat and instinctive "crouch and shoot" sightless shooting to cops haha.

Mom and pop shops still exist, and so does Bass Pro and Cabellas, but it's concerning for major retailers to disappear, because new legislation could possibly end online sales or make them more difficult. There's also the specter of credit card companies one day denying firearm-related transactions form online stores, and even Spike's Tactical had to temporarily halt their business because their web store client provider shut them down for terms of service.

At any rate, Sportsman's Warehouse is a pretty fantastic brick and mortar shop, they list local CCW classes to take advantage of, and encourage you to do so. Sportsman's Warehouse also sells handguns and has a wider selection of firearms in general.

Agreed. I have one within reasonable driving range of my home. I love it! However, let's not help the enemies of the second amendment by giving them aid in identifying pro-gun retailers.

PS, don't count on Bass Pro Shops. They are nowhere near as friendly to gun owners as they want you to think. A friend of mine who works in the Gun Library at Cabela's had a number of first person stories about the direction they wanted to take one of the remaining Cabela's as far as gun sales goes. Bass Pro corporate is Fudd at it's core. The only reason they allow the remaining Cabela's locations to sell scary black guns is the same fate that Big 5 and Dick's suffered: pissed off customers and flat line retail sales in the aftermath of dropping any weapons.

Unlike Bass stores, Cabala's was staffed by people who loved being there until Bass bought the chain. While their gun prices never were competitive, their buy back prices were the best around. Up to 60% of what they sold new for. That's gone now, too. Ammo is about the only reason I go to Cabela's.

That looks like a solid value. Make sure to go over the carbine carefully. Some owners complain about internal parts rattling a bit due to the way the action was engineered. A minor quibble considering how highly the carbine is rated overall.

Me: Fuck it! I'm buying a sword!

So I ordered an M1902 officer's sword and all the accoutrements. Specifically an older one with a Solingen German blade issued through Military Equipment Corp. of America. Mantoloking New Jersey. Not sure when exactly it was made, that it's marked "Germany" and not "West Germany" would seem to indicate pre-WW2 production but the blade etchings and proof marks look a bit more like post-WW2. Was going to buy one made by Universal Sword an Indian company, because their blades are carbon steel but this one was cheaper and looked nicer. The etchings/engravings on Indian-made swords tend to be crap. Cold Steel used to make a carbon steel M1902 as well but seem to have discontinued it.
Also ordered the belt, belt guard and chain for it from Marlow White. Only thing I didn't get was the sword knot and that's because I'm not a fan of lanyards and other dangling things and usually remove them anyway.

>Do you say that because Germany?

Yes, is from Solingen Germany. Obviously they stopped producing them just prior to WW2 and ones made post-war are typically marked "West Germany." Though beyond that it's hard to say exactly when it was made. It is surplus but other than a few minor nicks and scratches it's basically new. Likely it was only ever issued-out for a ceremony or two. Technically the M1902 is only authorized for wear by officers and they're supposed to buy their own. But technically there isn't an official NCO sword/saber anymore and few officers outside of the Cavalry bother with such things so many units keep a few tucked away for weddings and the like and that's almost certainly the story of this one. It spent most of the 70-80 years sitting in an armory or supply closet, was pulled out once or twice for a changing of the guard ceremony or wedding and eventually got sold-off as surplus and then posted on Ebay where I found it.

That's the Marine Corp NCO saber. Although the blade on the modern ones look little different from the M1902 it was originally based on the heavier-bladed M1850 Army Foot Officer's saber. It has a leather and wire-wrapped grip and brass fittings.

Cx4 is not a precision 100 yard gun i found out haha.
Though, could ring a 3/4 scale IPSC steel target all day. Just, like a 5 or 6 inch group. But nice thing is, i have the dot sighted for 25 and the hold at 100 is exactly the same.

Its really fun on a dueling tree at 50 though.

Is an officer's saber. The last generation of cavalry swords(like the M1913 Patton sword) were extra-long and straight bladed so as to replace both the saber and the lance. They were long enough that they were typically hung from the saddle rather than worn on the body. The officer and NCO sabers on the other hand were sized to match the user so that when the user is in the Carry Saber(Attention) position the point of the saber is between shoulder and eye-level and when at Parade Rest the point doesn't strike the ground.

Found a 5.11 Mesh Concealment Vest at Goodwill yesterday for $3.99.

Also, I put an extended beavertail on my Glock 19 a couple weeks back. Wanted to see if it would improve my trigger finger placement but I'm not convinced I like it. Especially since it gets in the way of the thumbsnap on my fitted holsters.

I'm considering buying a shotgun for shooting trap/skeet, and I'm leaning towards a semi-auto 20 gauge.

I think I'm sold on the Beretta Outlander or Benelli Montefeltro.

I have had both, great guns!
I just traded the 20g montefeltro for a Cx4 storm about 2 weeks ago.
I liked the benelli more, its just an M1 super 90 with fancy wood and a "sporting" magazine tube.

20ga is harder than 12 to whack clays with, if recoil is your concern, keep in mind that #6 #7.5 and #8 shot are creampuff loads.

Bruh. One of my gal pals introduced me to shooting clay awhile ago and it's the shit. I did it with a 20 bore, so I know what to expect.

Part of my consideration for the 20 gauge is because it'll also be my "shit test" for girls.

Edit: by the way, is there any difference between the Outlander with synthetic furniture and the Outlander with wood, minus the furniture?

It seems the wood-stocked Outlander is a good 200-400 dollars more on a lot of websites.

Shot gun sports are twitch shooters IRL haha.

That was what i had the 20 for too, they lady types haha but i found most could handle a semi auto 12 with no recoil sensitivity.

I'm 99% sure the only difference between the wood and the synth is the price tag. I had the wood but i scored it.

I shoot trap with an 870 20" vent rib. Im considering selling off my other benelli for a Beretta 1301 sport for skeet and sporting clays. The benelli is nice, but the barrels are expensive.

Check out Stoeger too, they are just benellies without the price tag haha.
Beretta/Benelli/Stoeger are all owned by Beretta.

The wood is going to be ever so slightly heavier which may soak-up a bit of recoil, especially with heavier loads. Probably not enough to justify the extra cost though.

I could shoot magnum slugs through my old 870 all day because it weighed slightly more than a VW Beetle. My Mossberg 500 gets unpleasant rather quickly with short magnum slugs even with the Hogue stock. My Ithaca Stakeout is just unpleasant to shoot in general and my Saiga 12 is just like: "What is this recoil you speak of?"

I'm certain I'll end up getting the Outlander in synthetic now, and in 12 gauge just for its versatility. It has a shorter length of pull, which is nice because I have a short arm span.

I went to the Sportsman's Warehouse to molest that one as well as a Montefeltro.

The Montefeltro was super light in comparison to the Beretta. Probably not the best for shooting clay exclusively, but it was very nice.

The Outlander was 650; the Montefeltro, 1000. I honestly liked the Montefeltro much more, but I don't think it'll suit me as well.

Found a London Bridge Trading Company Modular Assault Pack at Goodwill for $2.99 today. I need to find whoever keeps donating stuff like this and start intercepting them. You know, cut out the middleman.

Is in Granite grey or whatever it's called, which is a dark green/grey color. LBT does good color blending. The color seems to shift a bit depending on the light and the background. In the case of this pic it appears more green in common with my filthy carpet but might appear more grey against a cinderblock wall. Their 3-day assault pack that I got back in September is a blend of coyote tan and OD(just OD, not OD-green).

My two favorite machetes are my Ontario 18" D-guard machete, which has a thicker carbon steel blade than most and an antique Martindale No. 648 that I got at a yard sale ages ago. I leave it on the front porch for bushwhacking about the yard.

I also have a Cold Steel Smatchet machete. I've been a big fan of Fairbairn, Sykes and Applegate for years so was quite excited when I heard Cold Steel would be making an affordable Smatchet. Is a pretty good little chopper but it's swedge makes it hazardous to use for two-handed carving tasks. My Nepalese kukri is much better in that regard. It works great as a draw-knife.

Tramontina and Martindale machetes are both quite excellent. Ontario machetes are good but they're relatively heavy and the grips are rather too smooth. Cold Steel are quite good too if a bit mall-ninja-y.

For multitools Leatherman is still the best. Gerbers were standard issue in the military but the jaws had a tendency to break. Though to be fair people don't treat issued tools as gently as they do stuff they paid for. SOG has some pretty neat looking designs but IDK how well they hold up.

I've had my Leatherman Kick for about 20 years now, I've taken it everywhere including Iraq and Afghanistan. Just recently replaced it with a Leatherman Wingman because the screwdriver tips on the Kick are all worn down to nubs and the Wingman has an external locking knife blade, a file and a pocket clip which are all features I appreciate.

On the very first generation of M9's the slides had a tendency to crack at high round-counts. Now there was controversy about the adoption of the M9 because Sig P226 had beat it in every category except price(We would end up adopting the P226 as the M11 anyway) and all the boomers were salty that it was replacing their beloved 1911. So when a Navy Seal was mildly injured by the rear half of an M9 slide smacking him in the forehead during a torture test it got blown hilariously out of proportion until it sounded like that evil fascist pistol exploded like a grenade and decapitated that poor, sweet nephew of Uncle Sam and clearly we need to either go back to the M1911 or take the M11 or both or neither...

Well of course Beretta just reinforced the slides a bit and problem solved but the Beretta's reputation still followed it around for another 10 years or so. Until it was featured in a bunch of movies, TV shows and video games and people grudgingly decided it was OK after all. These days though a lot of the issue M9's are getting a little worn out. Assuming of course they issue them at all. I know in my unit trying to get them to issue pistols was like pulling teeth because some shmuck had lost one in the field at some vaguely-defined point in the past.

The slides were cracking because the test ammunition they were using was +p+ sub machine gun 9mm that the gun was never designed to handle.

Beretta still fixed is with the FS, but they also won a lawsuit against the US for defamation of their product and lost revenue do to faulty testing.
Yeah, the 226 would have been just as good, but beretta offered a good parts and mags package, and we prob got to use Italian airspace for something haha.

A lot of the problems with the beretta in sevice have to do with 3rd party replacement parts like shitty checkmate mags.

All military equipment gets a bad rap, the m17 is no exception.
And to be honest, i had an m17 go down after only maybe 2000 rounds or so, so it going to be interesting.
Many p320s go down too.
But the 92 has about 20k round through it and only has needed a new extractor.
The 226 has been flawless with about the same round count.

Ya, well even 9mm Nato is basically +P. The stuff for subguns has nearly as much muzzle energy as a .44 magnum out of the longer barrel.

>A lot of the problems with the beretta in sevice have to do with 3rd party replacement parts like shitty checkmate mags.


The military-issue mags weren't particularly good either. One issue I had with them is the baseplate getting bent upwards from being dropped, sometimes enough to interfere with seating. Iraqi sand would cling to the mag body if they had even the slightest hint of oil on them too. Not that Iraqi sand doesn't cling to everything mind you but they were especially troublesome. It also tended to accumulate inside the receiver of my Mossberg too and those things are a pain to field strip.

Of course the award for Grand Stupidity has to go to whoever decided to "upgrade" the M2 .50 cal to the M2A1, so instead of having to manually adjust the headspace and timing of the M2 you can just let the M2a1 batter itself into working order... or not, could go either way.

Oh, and also we had a batch of new FN M16a2's fall to pieces on us once too. I believe a pin in the burst cam was out of spec and would come loose under recoil. Of course we were switching over to M4's by that point anyway so that really didn't matter.

Yeah, subgun +p+ never should have been in that gun. If anything, its amazing it still had as few malfunctions with it as it did.

Sounds like you had the checkmate mags. The finish on those allows for sand to impregnate. Armorors would buy the checkmates, instead of taking advantage of free springs and fallowers from beretta because their budget for next year is based on the spending from this year haha.
If they were grey, they werent beretta/mecgar mags.

Im honestly surprised to hear that about the FNs. Though, i dont have much experience with their burst/full fire control groups, might be shit.

It's been too long since we've talked about Joerg Sprave and his YT channel. Most people know him as the German slingshot master. Since the last time I checked, he has found a loophole in German gun law that allows him to build and test legal home made airguns with his unique home brew engineering twists.

These three guns are the end results of his work on that idea.

snowbell lad, you were armoured (?) infantry, what was your belt kit setup like? I'm using the issued kit we get and it's relatively alright, i'm running 2 ammo pouches each side and three water bottle/utility inbetween but i want to know your tips

bit more clarity: i use the left side ammo pouches for mags, they fit six, then around to the right i have rations and cooker, middle pouch for comms cord, weapon cleaning kit, headtorch+ batteries, and misc, then waterbottle and metal mug, right side ammo pouches i keep a flask (provided i don't need to use that pouch, i usually don't but if carry a smoke i'll daysack my flask) and grenades

Are we talking alice kit here or molle kit?

One thing about mechanized infantry is that you can't have anything on the small of your back otherwise you won't be able to fit in the vehicle so no buttpacks or the like. But then since we had vehicles we didn't have to wear our existence load at all anyway, they could be stowed on the Bradley or Stryker. That being the case we mostly just carried ammo, water and a knife or multitool. We preferred to have ammo in an LBV or FLC and water in a camelbak since they fit a little more snug to the body than an alice belt with canteens which can snag on things like a turret ring.

Now if I wanted to combine fighting load and existence load and didn't have to worry about getting in and out of vehicles I would go with an alice belt. My preference is for the M1967 H-harness and the LC-2 belt with Fastex buckle. With the buckle at 12 o' clock I would put pistol mag pouches or compass/first aid pouches at 11 and 1, rifle pouches at 10 and 2 bayonet and pistol holster at 9 and 3* a dump pouch and canteen pouch at 8 and 4** and a buttpack would take up the rear. Then I would have another compass/first aid pouch on the left shoulder pad and a camelbak can be clipped to the back of the shoulder pads.

*If you don't need a holster the bayonet can go at 3 o'clock.
**If you don't have enough room on the belt these can be attached to the sides of the buttpack.

I also like to have a belt pad. Back in the day these were made from strips of the GI sleeping pad lashed to the belt with paracord but there's several companies that makes beltpads that are much nicer.
In the buttpack I would have the poncho liner, sweater or fleece, an MRE or two and maybe some other sundries. Then I would have wet weather gear lashed to the top and bottom of the buttpack.

The important things are to make sure your load is balanced, that nothing gets in the way when you kneel or go prone, that nothing rubs or chafes on the march and that everything is lashed down securely and doesn't rattle or clank.

He's my alice rig.

Ah, very different kit then. I was wondering how similar it would be, this is the kit we get issued and any kit you get must be similar though you can have pouch variants so long as you're willing to buy them yourself. I think i'll take your advice on a belt pad for sure, and i'm gonna add a bungee to hold all the pouches tight together (there are hook placements on the side of each pouch i can use). Getting in and out of vehicles isn't a problem for me since i'm (((light))) infantry role so i'm not too bothered about snagging

This is what i use for fighting order, if you assume the left water bottle is a day's rations and the flask is grenades. I keep wet kit and warm kit in my rucksack alongside the items i'm subbing for grenades/rations. I think i'll preobably get a camelback too when i have the chance to go get a good one, I'm tempted to just trade my daysack i have now for a camelback brand one but they're fucking expensive as hell and i don't want to buy second hand because who knows where it's been and it'll probably break soon as i use it. The karabiner is clipped onto one of the yoke straps so i can clip my helmet to it when not in use

Alice is old kit, dating from Vietnam, though some of it is still in limited use today it was already being phased-out in the early 00's.

In this pic I have my IBA vest on the left with mag mag pouches, holster and shotshell carrier. It's somewhat similar to what I used on my first deployment to Iraq. On that tour I did a lot of breaching and so carried a Mossberg 500 and an M9 with an M4 stowed in my vehicle, other breaching tools I carried were sledgehammer and halligan tool and det cord and water impulse charges when called for. On my second tour we mostly did route clearance so I just had an M4.
On the right is the R.A.C.K. Ranger Assault Carry Kit, a load-bearing vest primary meant to carry plenty of ammo and grenades. Below that is another alice belt with pistol, bayonet and dump pouch. I wouldn't need to use both the RACK and belt at once normally, they're just set together like that for the sake of compactness when I took the picture.

Hey guys, I need a bit of help with something.

I am currently working on a short zombie film which involves a character who has never shot a gun before (obviously gonna be using a BB gun as this is a film). In one of the scenes, the main character is given a gun told to aim said gun at a zombie. In the next scene, the character is shaking after shooting 4 times and missing. I know nothing about guns so I don't know if this actually happens to people. All I want to know is if it's considered dangerous for someone else to stop the shaking by also holding the gun with said person who has never held a gun in their life

sorry if this sounds absolutely fucking stupid by the way

You mean like stepping in behind them and gripping their hand with yours? That's not exceptionally dangerous but it's probably not really going to help them hit anything either.

The upside is that replacing the slide on a Glock is as simple as possible given the number of aftermarket parts producers. Better to replace a fractured slide than a fractured lower or shattered barrel.

>Was it a slaughter house or a butchers shop?

Yes! It was a full meat processing plant. Steers went in one side and frozen steaks came out the other. I mostly worked the butcher's floor, carving the flanks off the sides of beef. Back in the day that was the job that every teen around here did for at least a season. That plant closed at some point in the last 15 or 20 years, I remember seeing pictures of the interior on an Urbex site after it had been closed for a few years. It wasn't a bad job. Just tedious and repetitive. There's where I gained a distaste for stainless steel blades that continues to this day.

Urban exploring. You know, where people sneak into abandoned buildings and take a bunch of creepy pictures.

99% of stainless knives dull way too quickly and even the good stuff is merely on-par with common carbon steel. It's only real advantage is that it won't rust to hell if left in a sink.

I don't follow the gun news as closely as I used to due to boredom. Thus, I missed the formal introduction of this back in February. Glock has finally stepped out of their action design model and built a gun specific for German police needs. Unless I'm wrong, this is the first Glock with a manual frame safety and a rotating barrel action.

Behold, the Model 46 9mm for the German market for now.

Personally I've always felt .45 was well, perhaps not lighter recoiling but more of a roll than a snap. About the only the .45 I've ever shot that I didn't care for was an XD.

Mk17 took me to a range yesterday. My first time ever even holding guns, let alone shooting them. Had a good time. Pic related (wearing a Death Grips shirt, of course)

I think that picture was one of the ones where I was getting used to holding it/looking down the sight lol. It felt really awkward at first and Mk17 had to show me multiple times how to do it right. I did actually shoot it a few times though, and even hit the target :p

The barrel is actually pretty heavy duty.

The top rail is actually a tri-rail, the bottom one is just a strip. Both are connected with t-nuts like you use for M-Lok rails. It's nice and tight.

The Canadians do something similar on their C8s and I was inspired by it.

Oh, i see now.
Yeah thats a stiff barrel, should prob get some nice cool accuracy out of it. I like pencils because i end up carrying them alot haha.

Tri rail makes sense. I cant really add much to mine because the gas tube gets in the way, its the low profile handguard, but i dont want to switch it out because its comfy.
I might get one of those rails that attach to the gas block.

Yeah once I got it sighted in this thing was balls accurate. It's really not heavy as is considering the profile either. I'm even thinking of throwing a DD Omega on it.

Mine's also the low profile handguard and it still fits no problem. This tri-rail is designed with that in mind. If I could have found one of the proper canuck gas block rails I would have used it but they're nowhere to be found.

I've found the 21# works fine in both the x18's that I have. The .380 I had before took a 19# though. I like the 109gr. Wolf ammo and that's pretty snappy even with the 21# but even 92gr stuff has worked fine.

So I've had the CS Napoleon saber for almost a week now and it has been a righteous pain in the forearms let me tell you. It is quite a heavy thing, though still a few ounces lighter than their 1860 heavy cavalry saber. My biggest gripe is with the hilt, it is just a bit too short and a bit too fat. Not enough to be unusable, just enough to be annoying. In order to get a proper saber grip with my thumb on the backstrap I have to hold it it so that the pommel is pocketed in the butt of my palm, my pinkie finger is against the bottom of the knuckle guard and the tip of my thumb is against the quillion. In other words there's too many friction points. Now that's not that big a deal because it's really not recommended to use a saber grip with a heavy saber as said grip just isn't strong enough to reliably maintain control when parrying another heavy saber. The hilt is comfortable enough in the 3/4 thumb-over grip but even my rather long index fingers don't encircle the widest portion of the hilt quite as much as I would like. It would work quite in the fist grip except that the little brass nodules(I don't know what these are called but they're roughly equivalent to the menuki on a katana), while they do aid in gripping the thing they can also begin to rub after a while.

All that said, a cavalry saber is never going to be as light and wieldy as a dueling saber. Because cavalry sabers have to be stout enough to survive hitting things from the back of a galloping horse, which may include hitting another saber being swung from another galloping horse going the other way. That sort of heavy-duty construction adds considerable weight. The hilt could be better but being a reproduction of a historic design I can't complain too much about it and it's not so bad that I can't adapt to it. It's heft does inspire confidence though and it does come with the foible sharpened which is nice.

So is 9mm +p, or any quality home defense round. You can get some FMJ .40 S&W for less than 9mm if you watch for sales.

It's when you jump to 10mm or magnums that you see insane prices. I gladly pay $1 a round for Critical Duty or $17 plus tax for 20 rounds of SIG Elite V-Crown for my .40. Have yet to see the loose bullet problem with any box of SIG ammo. Not saying it doesn't happen anymore. Just that I'm not seeing it.

Well yes but It's not so much a matter of strength as just acclimating yourself to the heft of the given sword. You do of course get stronger doing that, but it's more a matter of conditioning than raw strength. One of my favorite pieces of workout equipment is a piece of 1.25" stainless steel rod stock which is somewhere around 40" long and somewhere between 7 and 8 pounds. About the same weight as an M16a4. I use it for exercise by doing rifle calisthenics or by swinging it like a longsword. Is a bit much to try and swing one-handed though.

>>42092149

Unless you already have the tools and such an 80% build is going to be more expensive. A Glock lower isn't as bad as an AR but still.

SIG ammo, I would not recommend.

.40sw is almost always 3-5 bucks more than the equivalent 9 per box, but yeah you can get it on sale.
For hollow points and HD, they all cost about the same anyway.

Glocks are like Honda Civics. Nothing special, you're never going to brag about it and only nerds soup them up.
But, it starts up and gets you to work everyday with minimal maintenance.
Everyone should have a Glock 19. Like a 1022 and an AR.

Glock ergos are such that you either love them or hate them. Personally I prefer a more angled backstrap. Back when point shooting was a thing a more acutely angled grip was believed to make the pistol "point" better, where a more vertical grip was believed to cause the muzzle to drop when thrusting the pistol forward from the high ready position. This was the reason for the hump in the mainspring housing on the 1911A1. But then Fairbairn, Applegate and their colleagues changed the stance to the low ready keeping the elbow and wrist stiff and bringing the pistol up into the line of sight by swinging up from the shoulder which negated the muzzle dip issue.

In terms of grip angle Glock roughly splits the difference between the 1911 and the Luger. The 1911a1 being ~105 degrees, Glock being 112 and the Luger being 124.

here's a video which features a historian (maybe lol) and is a expert on the 2nd amendment

this guy pretty much proves the people who try to misinterpret this amendment wrong

example "hurr durr it was meant for the militia so therefor it is not an individual right"

"whatever the government had, you could have" he stated

people owned canons back then

pretty much you can use whatever to defend yourself

So today my daughter and I were shooting the .44, I was kneeling beside her helping her support the thing and after she fired I felt something bounce off my thigh. I knew at once it was a rebounding fragment but I was confused because we were using a big upright pine log for a target and that's not the sort of thing to cause that. So after we were done I went and checked the log and it turns out she managed to hit one of the balls I had fired earlier and that's what had caused the rebound. (That's the fragment on the right, unfired ball on the left for comparison.)
Wasn't able to find the fragment that hit me though. But I thought that was neat.

Observe: When I cast the ball on the left the mold was too cool so the lead set prematurely causing the lines you see in the ball. This can affect accuracy. The ball on the right was cast when the mold was properly hot so it's nice and smooth.

Should i trade my flat top 10" upper for one with a fixed front sight?

It has a carry handle with it thats removable, but i feel like irons with night sites are better than the flip ups i have on it now, and since a 10" is kind of just a quick and dirty rather than a precision tool, i feel like the flat top and quad rail isnt exactly necessary.

Would make a good replacement truck rifle for coyote control.

Now tell me why i shouldnt.

I agree.

Ill miss the quad rail... but all i need is a little section to put a flashlight on anyway.

I think im losing out on the deal, because i would be giving a free floated fluted upper for a just... regular one. But when opportunity knocks...
I'm giving it a week, if its still at the store on sat, ill swap them around and see what i like. It would help his sell to some turbo kid too.

I feel like the fudds of our generation will be at least... willing to look at new things? haha. But you cant argue with what works.

As it happens I just decided on a whim to remove the RAS from my A4-gery and going back to the round plastic handguard with a far-forward rail section but then after removing the RAS and fighting to get the handguard on for a minute I decided the weight difference wasn't worth the effort and put the RAS back on and settled for just removing the flashlight and other extraneous bitz(which I will probably put back on in a week or two).

It would be replacing the one you shot.

Well they're still around $500 here. Back when I was buying them they were closer to $300-$350. One of the ones I bought was a single-stack model imported during the federal AWB which I got for ~$250, converted to double-stack and then sold for a small profit.

The action is pretty intense, though it's not so much the reciprocation that's the problem as the gas that blasts in your face. Safety glasses are a must. I shot it a fair amount, I still have a bunch of old Yugo surplus 8mm laying around, it was pretty accurate and the recoil was fairly light, of course it is a fecking huge gun.

Yeah the thing weighs about 40lbs, so I imagine the recoil would be fairly soft haha. The bolt isn't very massive ether, it's just a mouse trap.

I always tell people you can tell it's an Egyptian gun because the receiver is a pyramid haha.

I think I have some 8mm kicking around, maybe I'll take it out to the range and see what it does.

Time for some fresh Luger porn as served up by Gun Jesus. He visited the fellow who custom builds new Lugers and reviewed a 1 of 100 Abercrombie & Fitch contract Luger built with Swiss target barrels. The story behind this run of pistols is very unique and well worth watching. As Bill Cosby used to say "If you're not careful you just might learn something."

That's the common life cycle of an outfitter. They start out producing/selling small batches of high-quality goods for high prices, when they reach a certain point of success they reduce quality, increase quantity and branch out into mass-market crap. If they entirely throw away their exclusive image they devolve into just another shop at the mall, a shadow of their former selves.

Indeed. Woolrich is desperately clinging on to exclusivity(and the higher prices that come with it) despite all their stuff being made in Vietnam or Bangladesh or whatever now.

If anything is killing off brick and mortar retailing, it's Amazon. Just last week I had to order parts for my car and Amazon's suppliers shipped free in 4 days for half the price local car part shops offered. If you shop enough and pay for Prime shipping, that can be worth the yearly price for membership. Retail is hard pressed to compete no matter what corners they cut or who they get their items from.

Now if only we could make it legal for Amazon to sell and ship guns directly...

Ya, and while the RAS doesn't feel much heavier than the round handguard on it's own it is enough to make a noticeable difference in balance of the rifle.
I am kinda tempted to get an A2 upper but I know if I do then I'll have to build a whole new rifle for it, get more ammo and mags to feed it, probably find an Aimpoint for the A4 and so on and so on...

I think it's a sign I live in a high-level area. Also is an M65 parka, not a 51. They're pretty much identical except the 51 has a smaller built-in hood like the desert night camo parka which uses the same cut. The M65 only has the button-on hood. Originally both parkas had an alpaca wool liner but that was later replaced with a synthetic pile liner which is what this one has. The nylon liners for the M65 field jacket and night camo parka will also fit.

The following news is /k/ enough to warrant posting it here instead of starting a separate thread.

Three days ago, Ian of Forgotten Weapons chose to stick his foot into the YouTube wars. He announced that he's working with Jörg Sprave of The Slingshot Channel in organizing a legal push against YouTube's policy of refusing to provide formal published rules for creating content. This can be done in the EU due to their legal situation over there.

Jörg Sprave is more than a backyard engineer. He's formed a YouTube creators union in Germany and has found a legal partner with deep pockets who earnestly desire to make YT be the partner they claim to be with creators.

My gut instinct is that this won't turn out well for content creators no matter how many law firms the Germans can organize. It may also be the end of Forgotten Weapons and The Slingshot Channel on YT. Ian has quietly suggested he's already organizing a move away from hosting his work on YT but is being very low key to keep from pissing away what little good will he still has with Alphabet.

Godspeed to Ian and Jörg!

Swords are fun. Mine is also an officer's sword. There is also an NCO's sword but the officer's model is far more common. Here in the US Marines and Cavalry units are pretty much the only ones who bother with swords at all and of course Cav also do the stetsons, spurs, scarfs etc. Which I find amusing because, due to what amounts to military gerrymandering my unit would switch between being classed as Mechanized Infantry who have a fierce disdain for such accessorizing and Cav who embrace it and that along with all the organizational changes that come with it never failed to offend the saltier NCO's.

The most recent occurrence of this change also saw my unit, part of the Pennsylvania National Guard made part of 3rd Squadron, 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment Tennessee National Guard. Which pissed-off a lot people because not only did it require a reclass and reorganization but also required changing unit patches from the PANG's keystone insignia to... Whatever the 278th's unit insignia is meant to be.

Ian stated he's not relying on YT monitazaion. I think he said he's using Patreon as well in the linked video and doing well enough to have bought a new home. Like most other content creators, he's come to the end of the road with playing games with YT and just wants them to play fair by publishing the rules creators need to abide by.

Do it faggot. BP might not be very high-speed but it really puts the fundamentals and evolution of firearms into perspective.

Also get a melting pot and molds and cast your own balls too.

The history is what makes me interested in BP, there is also a lot of tinkering involved which makes it even better
However, the .22 is a must have in any hunting focused arsenal since there are some situations where a shotgun is too powerful or loud
Plus i'd get some experience on rifles so the transition to large caliber rifles isn't that bad if i decide to join the deer/moose section of the hunting club

Yes indeed, I got my 1858 due to my love of Civil War Cavalry. My favorite .22 is my Winchester 94/22, is lever action, shoots .22 short, long and long rifle, is very accurate and is a takedown. Unfortunately they've been out of production for a good while, I believe Ithaca and Henry make similar guns though.

Of course there's also the Ruger 10/22, the Remington 597 and Savage makes some excellent bolt-actions as well.

Oh, and if you want a BP gun with a stock there is a cattleman's carbine version of the Remington 1858. That would be adequate for hunting too.

Faggot McFagginsCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42094885

>>42094867
A lever action .22 would be pretty cool, sadly they are few and far between around here because bolt actions are the thing in .22's around here, so most likely i'll be getting a TOZ or a Sako
A semi would be more functional but it's gotten harder to get a license for a semi thanks to the EU

>cattleman's carbine

I actually saw one of those for sale, but isn't there a risk of loosing some fingers with those?

So after casting another 100 or so .454 balls yesterday and looking at all the lead I still have I had the thought that I'm gonna need more BP guns to shoot it all. It was about then I remembered a Traditions .45 Pioneer Pistol kit I got about a decade or so ago that I never finished because it required more hand-fitting than I felt comfortable trying to tackle back then. The sight dovetails were too shallow and narrow, the sights were made of some mystery metal that were marred more by my brass punch than vise versa, the hammer was canted and so wouldn't strike the cap true and the trigger bar would slip off the sear and jam the whole thing up. This kit seems to be long out of production now and can't say I'm terribly surprised. I got it on clearance at my LGS for about $50.

Well I dug it up and am now working on getting it working. I put the files to the sights and dovetails and got them installed successfully, I blued the barrel and applied linseed oil to the stock, once the stock is dry I'll work on the lock fitment and if that is successful I might even have a go at shooting it. It does seem to use a larger percussion cap than the 1858 though so I'm gonna have to track those down.

>>42095033

Probably.

So I dug up a big box of assorted shotgun shells That were given to me years back, they had gone through a flood and were all corroded so I cut them open harvested the shot and cast another 5 pounds of lead from them so now I have ~14.5 pounds in ingots. I think I'm going to get 00 buckshot and 12G slug molds too.

Here's the Pioneer Pistol assembled. I'm really pleased with how the finish turned out. I had stained the stock back when I first got and the linseed oil really darkened it up. I might wait a week or two polish it up with some 600 grit sandpaper and then apply another coat of oil.

The barrel is pretty nice too, it had some surface rust on it and rather than remove it completely I just put the wire brush wheel to it and then dabbed it with cold blue solution thus giving a faux antiqued patina. I think I have the sear and trigger bar squared away so all that's left is to get the hammer straightened out.
