When would you actually fire with your carry pistol?
Hi, I was thinking of getting a CCW and carrying, but I'm not sure if I see the point.
If I get mugged, my instinct is that it's safer to give him my wallet rather than to either draw or fire, which would both risk me getting shot.
I can't think of any other time I would feel in danger. Help set me straight please.
A lot of /k/ posters will say "just shoot him! slot the floppy!" but in practice it just depends on the situation. I'd rather lose my wallet than get into a gun fight anyday, armed or otherwise. Then again, if I let him approach to take it he might start searching me down and take the gun or he might try to kill me anyway just because. In those cases I'd pretty much have to shoot, though in all others having the gun merely gives you the option but it doesn't make it a good idea per se.
Where were you when Australia wanted to ban bolt action rifles as well?
Fondling my AR-15. AU can get shrekt.
Is there anything wrong with actually enjoying Combat and such?
Just thinking to myself that if the US ever goes boots on the ground in the Middle east again, I'd probably sign up just for the chance of seeing some action. Life is so boring, just want to kick some doors in.
>I just want to kick doors in
boy howdy did you miss the fun of the 07 surge then. room cleared an entire hotel looking for 4 assholes once. also burned shit with a sergeant major, about as good of an experience one could hope for when burning shit.
if thats your only reason to serve then I strongly dont recommend it, OP.
If people say it is better to build lots of destroyers instead of one big and powerful battleship. Because one missile will hit and then will destroy only one destroyer.
Then why build big aircraft carriers instead of smaller ones?
Why not build a small carrier with enough space for 4 F-35B?
Same logic here, multiple small aircraft carriers instead of one big expensive.
Larger aircraft carriers are more efficient. Relying on V/STOL means that you have much shorter range overall. Carriers aren't for fighting other carriers anymore. Carriers are a tool can be used to pacific a certain area with its mere presence.
Destroyers are big and powerful battleships.
So this empty space behind the magwell of my Gen 4 Glock 19 is bugging me. Seems like a waste. What can I shove up there so I'm not wasting the real estate on my gun?
Survival kit. Fishing hooks and line, snare wire, pills, tinder, cocaine, the usual stuff. Just cram it full of junk.
Ask Google, too. Odds are people on Glock forums have thought of cool ideas too.
Or... You could fill it with skittles :p
Hey /k/ it's been a long time since I've seen a serial number thread on here, so let's do it again,post those serial numbers!
Obama says next year he will mount a sustained effort through executive order to command firearms be banned and all you white pussies will obey Him and turn them in. What guns will you crackers turn in first?
>He actually believes the gun lobby doesn't financially support both parties.
to the cutiest cutie pie who ever cutie'd. Hope you have an awesome party and get lots n lots of presents.
Probably half the people browsing now doesn't even know the story...
It's sad, I used to even have the pictures saved here, the forbidden ones, but lost on a HDD fault, maybe that was for better.
Hope JFN is fine and she's having fun with her dog.
Would you sell guns that you both don't shoot, and really can't afford to shoot?
I have about ten guns. And about 9 of them are safe queens. The only gun that isn't, my Browning Citori which I shoot trap with every week is the only one that gets any use.
I really don't shoot my other guns for three reasons.
A. I have no use for them. Like my pump and single shot shotguns. I don't shoot clays with them. And there's no reason to bring them down to the rifle range.
B. I can't afford to shoot them. I'm on a students...

>Would you sell guns that you both don't shoot, and really can't afford to shoot?
well as you get older you will answer this question most likely - yes sell them
you can carry those guns for awhile in your safe and get some emo satisfaction from that
but you can't take those guns with you after you're dead - so either you sell them now and get some $$ or your estate will either destroy them or sell them for peanuts
How effective would it be to switch all of our IFVs with Shilkas?
This is the OP who bought a Martini-Henry a few days ago. I can't get my bayonet to lock up on this rifle and I'm not quite sure why. As you can see the bayonet has a small bit of room to move However it can't because it is already hitting the stock. I need it to move down that small space so I can rotate the collar to lock the bayonet.
This picture shows the bayonet hitting the stock
So my friend and I just purchased a pair of black powder revolvers for having fun out in the desert. While looking into some of the ball casting equipment online I had an idea, what if you used these molds to cast balls out of rubber or silicone instead of lead and then used an extremely reduced powder load, we'd probably have to do some tests to find the right load size, to fire them? It could be like paintball with revolvers, or it could end up with someone missing an eye.
What do you think /k/? Fun idea or really really stupid and dangerous idea?
It could maybe be as safe as paintball if a low density projectile is used. You'd need a high speed camera to get everything just right. But why bother when clean shooting paintball markers require much less maintenance?
In the light of recent attacks, does /k/ look at this as a credible threat?
And I'm supposed to be visiting there on Sunday.
I know this could just be rhetoric at this point but we now know how bold ISIS can be.
ISIS has claimed lots of shit. 99% of the time it's just bullshit.
Like how they apparently managed to "hack" a list of names and home addresses of military personnel and wanted to turn it into a hit list.
I have a chance to get an HK USP .40 Compact DAO for 500 bucks in like new condition.
Is this a good idea? How do I know if it had the LEM trigger? It has night sights too.
Thanks for the help guys.
Comes with 2 mags
Good gun or no?
Wants 500 or to trade for a flock 19 Gen 4 which I have to trade.
My daily carry is a Steyr S9A1 but this HK interdasts me.
Not a huge fan of .40 but a USP is the gun to get if that's what you want something in .40. If it's really "like new" then that's a pretty damn good deal.
>how to know if lem trigger
They'll tell you and charge you more for it, also if you've ever shot another da/sa you should be able to tell.
Its a good price man if you have other guns in .40 do it, if you are specifically looking for a .40 do it. you can do much worse for that price lol.
Fuck you assholes for making me buy these.
On the other hand, What're y'all watchin?
Was that any good?
I think it looks like 'The Kingdom' Mexico Edition from the trailers.
Haven't seen anything to prove me wrong yet.
