Was anyone else looking forward to the DD5V1 until they released the MSRP? Sucks being in that zone between poorfag and richfag.
We got one for Big Bitches. Let's get another one going for Babes, sweet curves.
Hey /k/, I've been thinking about getting a single action revolver sometime soon (probably a new vaquero) and I've been wondering whether I should go with .45 long colt or .357 magnum.
What insight can /k/ give me regarding this matter?
If the A-10 is so great, then why does only 1 country use it?
because its so good, only the greatest country on earth can have it
Because the USA is the biggest hipster of the weapons world, using a dirt cheap old model aircraft for ground attack would be too mainstream.
Case in point, the M60. Rather than adopt the M240 (FN MAG-58) back in 1958 when it was invented, they had to have their own special snowflake GPMG.
I went to Washinton DC with my IRL friends recently and I noticed that most of the security seemed to use revolvers rather than automatics, why is this? Aren't revolvers objectively inferior?
How effective a silencer would there be to put a balloon over the muzzle of the gun when you shoot?
What if I fill the balloon with powdered sugar? The heat from the bullet will flash melt the sugar, thus reducing the sound to within its sugary bubble. Since the bullet is faster than the melting point of the sugar, it escapes before the sugar solidifies, but not before the sound wave does. Bonus is you can then eat the sugar for energy afterwards.
I'll go first: this is my cane sword. I picked it up second hand and can only assume that the stick figure etchings down the length represent all the people killed by this blade. The theory is that the owner ran out of room to etch his kills on the blade so he sold it. Seems antique. Anyone know the maker?
Rate your sword thread
I was given this by my dad to hold on to. It's apparently WWII era from the features. The handle is loose though, if I were to disassemble it and reassemble. Most blade information would be on the tang as well, right?
What are the AKs to buy for $400-$500?
What is /k/'s opinion about this thing?
Do you guys know if shotguns are allowed at public rifle ranges? Like using slugs? Or something else. Just curious
Depends on where you're at. Some places have a shotgun lane for patterning but generally slugs are a no no because they tear up the target backers really fast. Each facility is different so the answer is depends.
What would you consider the minimal set of firearms sufficient to protect the family of two at home, at work and on the road? I'm thinking of two compact hangunds for CC, and one full size hand gun with a big magazine for home defense. Been told that it would be a nice idea to get a shotgun, but ran out of time for the conversation and still trying to figure out how it would be superior to a full size handgun - any comments?
And, what things other than handguns will be useful for protection? Obvious choices would be knives and flashlights, anything else?
Make the handguns compact revolvers if you're first-time gun owners. I recommend the Ruger LCR.
Substitute a shotgun for the full size handgun.
Tasers, knives, and bludgeons all suck. Get big fat pepper foggers and carry them on your belt, not in your pocket.
>Substitute a shotgun for the full size handgun
The question stands, why? Wouldn't it be more difficult to navigate the house looking for the intruder with the shotgun at ready instead of the handgun at ready? Do you fire from the hip in this case?
thinking of getting one in .357 as babby's first revolver
