Give me one reason why I shouldn't load the first two rounds with Glaser safety slugs.
>cost is not a reason
books. what have you read, recommend
A 36gr .22lr leave the barrel at just about 1100fps with 96.706 ft lbs. of energy.
A major league pitcher can easily throw a 5.5oz baseball at 92mph with 97.263 ft lbs of energy.
When was the last time someone was killed by a baseball? How many times have you seen a pissed off batter charge the mound after getting hit by a pitch?
This is all the proof you need that .22lr is useless and will only piss someone off and make them charge at you.
What would happen upon firing a single loaded handgun without a magazine? Would some gases escape through the space normally occupied by the magazine? How common are the no-magazine safeties?
>what would happen
Most models fire no problem, sometimes the brass doesn't eject right because the extractor relies on something being under the spent case to drag it against until it hits the ejector.
Are fucking retarded.
Would you call me a true operator?
Im looking into stockpiling food. Now here is the thing, I live in an apartment and I have a bug out place but. No food. So what does /k/ recommend for long term storage foods and related goods? I have a smoker and hunt a bit but good game is already scarce around here. So smoking/salting is only supplementary.
TL;DR what kinds of preserved foods/brands should I get that will last forever~? Canned goods, MREs or Brands?
Sugar keeps literally forever and has a ridiculous amount of calories per pound. Peanut oil is also extremely calorie dense and lasts for about three years.
Needless to say, these are dietary supplements and not staple foods.
For that, you might want to try whole grains (have a crank operated grinder and powdered milk.

Sorry, OP. No matter much you suck lockheed's dick - You will never place your NEETy lard ass in a pilot's seat.
What's the best gun for a /fit/izen? I realize my gains won't protect me from a tribe of dindus but I'm a bit limited by budget, can't really buy a handgun because I'm 19 so rifles or shotguns are next best thing, I was thinking getting a mosin because cheap ammo and reliable what do you guys recommend?
I'm wanting to build a .300 BLK pistol for under $500. What are some good kits with everything included except the receiver? (7-13 inch barrel) Will consider rifle kit if significantly cheaper.
Smaller barrel means less noise, bud
I can get 50 rounds of BLK where I live for under $20
What's up /k/, how much ammo do you have stored. I've got around 300 in the ammo can of 223. What should I stick up on?
What gun is this?
Discuss defensive loads, personal experiences, shitpost about 9mm
I'm getting a .45 for home defense/CCW/hiking in big cat territory and really don't know anything about the recent defensive loads. What would you suggest? I'm most likely getting a full-size USP.
The how or the why doesnt matter now. The last choice you get to make will be where. You will be surviving and hopefully thriving for the rest of your life, where will you choose to make a go of it?
High mountains? (Rockies, Appalachians) low mountains? (Valley, or at the foot of the mountains) the great plains? (great fertile ground, almost no defense) South West? (Brutal summers, no winter, agriculture difficult in many areas) South East? (Brutal humid summers, no real winter, perfect farming and hunting.) North East? Mild summers, brutal winters. Agriculture comes...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I would go for the foothills of the mountains. Near defensible, difficult to navigate terrain. Near the middle line of the country to avoid the harsh winters and give as long a grow season as possible without having to deal with the easily life threatening heat of the southern half of the country.
Must have a water source. Creek, stream, or small pond. Not near a large river. Not near a coast line or high population center.
So it looks like Colorado, West Virginia, Utah area for me
Can anyone tell me about these medals? I tried to look them up, but I only found the rainbow WWII victory one. I believe these medals belonged to my grandpa, but he died before I was even born. My mom never talked about him being in the military (she never talked about her parents at all, really).
There wasn't any documentation along with the medals, or even his name anywhere. If I knew his name I could look him up somehow, right?
