I think I fucked up, /k/. I bought one of these old flareguns the other day from my local shop and I wanted to polish it up. So I have it submerged and soaking in half a gallon of pure vinegar... and it's smelling awful and it's leaving this slimy gold paste on my gloves when I swish it around.
Any tips on what I need to do here? Should I add some baking soda to fizz it up and deep clean it? Maybe some boiling water?
If you shoot at a burglar and miss, but he runs away, should you still call the cops? Will you be in more or less trouble than if you hit him?
In the eyes of the law if he is running away it is not self defense anymore and you can be persecuted I believe. You have to think the main point of confronting a burglar with a gun is to scare him off. Your mindset shouldn't be "I'm going to kill this guy" it should be "if he tries to kill me I will kill this guy". In some states the laws could be different though.
Yes, as a law abiding citizen you should always report a crime to the police. Obviously if nothing happened at all you have no actual reason to, but if you fired your weapon you need to call them so they know it was done lawfully in case someone calls the cops about it. That way they know it was a lawful shooting rather than a negligent discharge or an attempted murder. If they were suspicious of you for one of these crimes then failing to call them to report the robbery and self defense shooting is instant heavy suspicion.
>Norway couldn't singlehandedly-destroy USA in a week
TOP KEK AMERICAN PIG SHIT!!! Oh believe you me, us Norwegians are ITCHING for a war with USA. We will fucking ANNIHILATE your dirty country. There wouldn't be a square meter of American soil that has running water, electricity, or petrol that isn't on fire, once our airforce and navy is done bombarding your defenseless country. Then, our army boys (we'd send the niggers and other mongrel races first) would swoop in, raping your women, and killing EVERY American pig shit...

Why do so many militaryfags envision themselves as Frank Castle? Do they lack the ability to separate fiction from reality?
Everytime some breeder with a dependent feels the need to explain what they would do if their kids died, as if they fantasize about it daily.
Why is this fictional character so embedded in post-2000 era combat arms?
Punisher skull is cringe as fuck.
Stick with the original.
What's a good handgun for a woman?
When my sister first moved out I gave her my only gun at the time, A kimber .45 ACP. She shot it maybe 4x total at the range and says it hurts her wrist and "it's hard to shoot". Her birthday is next month and I think now it's time to buy her a handgun she feels comfortable with and can carry daily if I can get her to get a CPL. But I don't know what to buy. She's small and weak like most women, what do I buy?
Needs to be simple with no safety for her to leave on and something that can easily be concealed
What would you buy?
Whatever full size handgun(assuming purse carry)she can hold and shoot comfortably. Ignore the voice in your head that says oh she's a girl, I should get her a compact or sub compact. Less mass means more felt recoil. Unless she is significantly smaller than the average, the same suggestions that apply for a man as to what handgun you should get, apply to women as well.
What is the most outrageoulsly overpriced shot you've ever seen? I was perusing the cases at a pawn shop near me, and I saw a P38 for THREE FUCKING THOUSAND DOLLARS. It was labeled "Nazi P38" even though it was obviously a P1 because of the darker finish and black plastic grips. Went back a few months later just because I was bored and had time to burn and the case it was in was empty, so presumably some dumbass actually bought it.

it's a pawn shop special one they never expect you to pay whats on the tag if its over a couple hundred dollars. I once got a skillsaw for 10 bucks because i told the idjut at the register that the nut that holds the blade is impossible to find and a set of dies and taps for 5 because they had "rust"
I'm from Ohio and going to the Republican convention. I don't know what the heck might go down there so I want a mask to protect from tear gas. There are so many surplus masks and dubious filters on the internet it's hard to know what is good and what isn't.
Best value on a mask that protects against tear gas?
I was about to post it as well. Just make sure the goggles have no ventilation slits (chem/splash eye protection should not, but depending what you find and buy in a hardware store if you ever happent o be in a hurry it's something to be careful about.
If you're willing to invest into an actual purpose build gasmask, have a look at Mestel products.
>live in NJ
>can't have a fun black gun without pinning it to accept only certain magazines and non-adjustable stocks
I'm in Pennsylvania for a couple of weeks. I'm tempted to just buy an ar-15 here and keep it locked away when I'm back at home, then just take trips to ranges here in PA to use it.
How fucking stupid is this idea?
Don't they throw your ass in prison for possesion of hollow points in NJ? Do you want to risk the felony for a range toy? I could see buying one and stashing it for SHTF and not telling a soul.
Hey /k/, I just bought my first gun today. Pic (Maverick 88 Security) not mine but related. Let's have a thread about first guns.
hard to say, alot of my guns were handed down to me. so they were always in my possession in my moms closets so i could get one and go hunting anytime, so i will go with my favorite and say Remington 760 game master.
why didn't the tiger I have sloped armor?
Because the germans over thought the inside without thinking about the practicalities. Imagine if the US had the localized land to manufacture tanks and the firearms that the germans had? Literally the reason why the m4 was so great was because how easy repairs where, how easy it was to escape from, and how reliable they were.
Because they needed a heavy tank fast and decided the best thing to do was make a really fat Panzer IV and throw a flak gun in the turret.
It worked pretty well, all told, but the Krauts didn't have the economic power to make as many as they needed.
So with Game of Thrones starting back up again, I couldn't help but have my wet dream again. The one where a few good Roman legions conquer Westeros.
This question has probably been asked before, but how would an early-mid empire Roman legion (with auxiliaries) fair against medieval men-at-arms and soldiers?
Let's assume that the Romans have access to the same steel that the medieval army has. In terms of equipment, how would the scutum, short sword, pilum, and lorica segmentata stack up against medieval gear like brigandines, halberds, spears, arming...

Seems like an apples-to-oranges comparison desu senpai. Most of the Roman army's strength came through its organization capacity (the ability to put together a well-fortified camp, maintaining supply lines, etc). All of which would wreck most other armies of the period. At the same time, I think it would take them a couple battlefield losses before they were able to adapt to heavy cavalry
Given that a squad of special forces operators is the equivalent of a infantry battalion on the field in their capability, would WWII have been made vastly easier if we had deployed nothing but special forces in lieu of regular infantry in Europe or the Pacific?
So I just bought this CZ P07 duty and was wondering what these cutouts on the slide were? I can't find anything about it on google. Also CZ thread.
Watched this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSFnmM12LOQ and thought about if is a good idea to bring kids younger than 16 to hunting trips.
