Does /k/ like Beretta?
If I said that Beretta was a good brand, I'd just be talking shit without actually knowing. The truth is I own only one Beretta product and I've only shot the 92 in one variant or another.
I hear they make pretty decent shotguns, I've shot one before and enjoyed it
Never shot a 92fs but I hear that
>They were pretty good for their time but modern pistols surpass them
>They're too big and heavy for a 9mm pistol
Best colour for law enforcement ops,
khakis, blue or OD?
After yesterday, filling one of these out.
Also printing one out for all my friends and telling them to sign up for that gay group that got DC turned Shall Issue. Any other steps?
So i was following up on the aftermath of this weekend and I ran across this... Seriously?
>be 18yo new fag
>be unable to buy handgun for self defense bc not 21 yet
>be mugged 4 times with increasing severity each time
>have an idea
>time to start packing a black powder revolver (army style)
So I have been thinking, I have been mugged several times but have had to retreat with my tail behind my legs each time because the knives I had on me where not enough to defend me against this dude who has a freaking ka-bar. So I had an idea. I'm pleanty familiar with old West shooting and have a pietta stainless steel bp revolver army style. I was able to buy it because the great democratic republic of maryland views anything black powder as a glorified bb gun. But this got me thinking. It is inevitable that I will get mugged again, but this time I want to be prepared. So what if I was to carry my pietta around with me every day. I always have a backpack and concealing an 8 inch revolver is not an issue. I have been able to get it out of my back pack fast. So my question to /k/ is what place do you think black powder serves in personal protection and home defense in modern day society? Can it be a good alternative to those who can't buy modern hand guns? What about loading only a powder charge for the first shot as a warning and have the rest be loaded with some good old case hardered lead balls? Also black powder hand gun thread.
I would say that given most self defensive uses of firearms do not involve a shot being fired, it is better than no gun. I have black powder guns, an in-line and a Pietta 44cal revolver, and would be leary of trusting my life to either.
Also, get a 36cal or figure out a better method of carry. I used to carry in a fanny pack while cycling and even that was a little slow, taking about three seconds when using both hands.
That said, I would personally just buy a more modern pistol private party and be...

If you are getting mugged that frequently you need to stop being retarded. I've lived in Detroit for 28 years and never been mugged because I'm not stupid as fuck. The answer isn't to start carrying around a weapon, the answer is to not be a dumb as fuck child unaware of their surroundings.
So, what's still happening in the Ukraine? What's the current status of the Ukraine's forces deployed in the East of the country? The proxies and Russian forces? Do you guys think there is a good chance of escalation?
Stop calling it that, it isn't 1991 anymore and it isn't "the" Ukraine. Its it's own country now and it is just Ukraine. You don't go around saying "The Germany" or "The France".
Is there any real life truth behind revolvers doing more damage than pistols in video games?

No thread about the Worlds Largest Military Grade Land and Air-land Defence and Security Exhibition ?
Fine let's have one ! Lots of new stuff this year.
And for a start, this is the new Rheinmetal 130 (yes one hundred thirty) mm L51 smoothbore MBT gun.
It is intended to be the main armament for the future generation of tanks which will replace the Leo 2.

EMT In California. Considering keeping my glock 19 in my gear bag at work. I work in really shitty areas but i dont plan to use it on calls or responding to emergencies like some ricky rescue operat0r, but incase shtf like an active shooter. please tell me this is not a good idea.
its a terrible fucking idea bro. 1. Emts aren't supposed to be going into any scene that isn't safe. Thats why you have cop bros go in first and make scene safe. 2. You get caught carrying a handgun, prepare your anus to be raped daily when you get put in jail for 2-5 years.
> Consider carrying a body armor, not illegal to buy/ carry body armor. Yet.
Does your employer allow it?
I know mine doesnt and if he found out i'd get fired on the spot.
Can you lock it away securely?
If your workplace is in a shitty area there's always the chance of someone breaking into the place looking for drugs and shit.
A locker with a little padlock is not going to cut it.
And if you have to go to a location with an active shooter, police should be there way before you, meaning that your glock isnt going to make the difference.

Does anyone have that picture pointing out all the things that are hilariously inaccurate in calling an AR-15 an "assault rifle"?

With this recent shooting, and the elections in the fall. When do you guys think it will kick-off?
Should I max out some of my credit cards?
When either Hillary or Obama begins his media round of gun control talks.
But by then, you'd be a bit late to the party since there's plenty of people already buying after the shooting hit news.
Well my local gun store is pretty good at pricing ammo around market averages. I just bought 100 rounds of 5.56 saturday at 45 cents a round, the highest it's been in a while. I will check what the prices are in the morning. But I sure do miss paying under 35 cents a round
