I was in the shop the other day checking out these guns. I'm honestly torn between the two. Is the recoil/accuracy any better on the 19? I feel having a smaller more concealable gun when I need it with the option of having an extension mag or just throwing a G19 mag into it makes the 19 kind of pointless when choosing between the two. I have a pretty skinny frame and however I holster the 19 it sticks out.
Anyone had experiences with these 2 that wants to weigh in?
both are fine but it really depends on if you can tolerate not having a full grip on the gun most likely your pinky has no space on a 26
the 26 recoils slightly more but its still 9 so its not bad its just harder to control cause youve got less gun to hold
Welp another reminder that if you actually buy from Smith & Wesson you hate everything right with the world.
I put my M&P 9C up for sale today. I got it for $300, and I got 3 free mags AND a $50 rebate from it.
So $250 for a handgun I barely used with 5 mags and night sights. I don't think I can lose.
I'm probably going to get an FNS-9C or a H&K P30SK
I don't care. I still like them.
S&W cares not what the individual does with their guns, only what other companies are.
Avast ye faggots, this here be the nuggetfest thread of the day.
Who wants to debate wether or not I bring my offensive flag collection? Some of the highlights include a nazi battle flag, a confederate flag, a gay pride flag, and an ISIS flag (that I had to screen print myself) amongst any others.

What were the most popular rifles in Australia prior to Port Arthur?
FALs, SKSes, AR-15s were becoming more popular.
Quite a nice bit of everything, honestly.
I left shortly after Howard took away my guns. Now I'm living comfortably in America.
According to Ron Owen - major redneck gunshop owner - his shop in Gympie imported more SKKs than the total number of all semiautos handed back in the 96 debacle.

So what are the chances of us seeing a massive development in firearms technology within' our lifetimes?
It seems a lot of the technology is already there for laser or guass guns, but we just don't have the right batteries and the like to go the whole mile yet.
Slim to be honest.Maybe more efficient recoil systems, more advanced optics/target tracking, and maybe guided rounds in smaller calibers, but probably not anything like a laser or gauss because no portable power source strong enough.
However, guided sniper rounds and self-calibrating optics would be pretty dope (pun intended)
I'd expect nightvision optics (and NVGs themselves) to become cheaper and more popular... perhaps some kind of cybernetic targeting system for the military so a soldier can acquire a sight picture without needing to physically look down the barrel. Perhaps some funky caseless 6mm new assault rifle round. All told, it'd be incremental improvements that may or may not actually be worth the costs of using.
Virginia CC, now this? Where will the madness end?
It's like they think people can't put on their sneakers and walk to Ballard and buy guns and ammo tax-free. It's an absurdly pointless measure.
Hey /k/ I've got a chance to get a 1943 lee enfield 4t sniper for 4000 $. Comes with scope w/ matching numbers both for the rifle and the scope. Worth it?
Do you like it ?
Can you afford it ?
If both answers were "yes", then go
Were the Germans issued bayonets for the Kar98k during WW2?
I've been into the sauce tonight /k/. On a Tuesday. Jesus fucking Christ. That bitch is finally gone. Headed out sometime last night.
Save my soul with a WW2 thread.
They most certainly did.
Could .40 S&W conceivably go the way of .38 Super, in that it will become a niche cartridge used more for specific sports rather than as a mainstream combat/"plinking" cartridge?
Where .38 Super was, to a certain extent, pushed out by .357 magnum, .40 S&W seems more and more like it's being pushed out by modern loadings of 9mm. .40 S&W has found some popularity in very much the same place as .38 Super, practical shooting sports where power factor and other relevant factors are a concern.
On the other hand, it seems like .40 S&W really...

If you want my opinion, the ammo will probably continue to be popular but fewer and fewer new guns will be made in it. I think .45 is going to decline too, just not as much.
9mm Does everything .40 s&w does except more. 9mm has better capacity and the recoil is more easily managed for getting more rounds on target.
9mm is better in every way. Sure you may be able to shoot .40 better, some people shoot different cartridges better. But 9mm is still, tactically, superior.
We already know that. OP is asking if .40 has a chance of staying in production despite that.
is probably right. There's plenty of fuddlore surrounding it ("it's like a 45 with almost 9mm capacity!") that it'll survive its falling out with police. I don't think the comparison to .38 Super is really fair, considering that the market the .40 came out in was completely different from the one that the .38 did.
Name a better assault rifle.
Where's the guy with the roll for country pic when you need him?
Picked up another M39, she's a beaut.
I've got all the cosmoline out of the metal parts, but the stock is soaked in the stuff. What's the best way to get the cosmoline out without damaging the original finish?
I just wiped with paper towels to start with.
I shot it and got it hot so it was bleeding out of an otherwise clean stock, then wiped more off with the towels I'd brought. Pretty soon, there wasn't any left.
upside down picture thanks to mobile, goddamnit.
nice, may just go that route, seems the most gentle. any thoughts on soaking it in mineral spirits? will that take off the finish?

Fuck, this is going to make getting to track day at VIR a bit harder.

Damage is nice and allows for intense firefights with a tasteful length
