Whats the closest I can get to WWII 1911 without actually buying one that was in service?
is the Colt series 70 the closest?
Not interested in these ones with rails and night sights and shit.
So there I was, /k/... Sitting at my desk when a coworker asks me if I'm any good with guns.
>sure, whats up?
>could you fix my rifle? Something happened and the bolt locked to the rear? I'll pay you
>yeah, just leave it in my truck and I'll take it home and figure it out
>how much will you charge??
>depends... Between 50-100 bucks
>that's great! Thanks

Does anyone have the series of images of posts of a dude who inherited the most insane ever collection of firearms from his dad and grandad?
Pic unrelated, it's the only gun I own.
In naval warfare, you've got to presume that you'll always be under attack by aircraft or missiles.
Then why do we build surface ships? In the 1930's the concept of an underwater cruiser or battleship were proven to be feasible however it was only treaty limitations that prevented them from going forward.
Why don't all countries just have subs, and sub versions of destroyers and carriers..
Can any of you upstanding fellows recommend a good bolt action rifle chambered in 5.56?
It'd primarily be a paper puncher, but I'd like it to double as a groundhog genocide machine on occasion. Ideally, it would capture the aesthetics of something simple like the CZ 455 Varmint (pic related), but ultimately I'll settle for function over appearance.
Savage makes on and so does Ruger, though I think you need to get an aftermarket for the Ruger.
Really wish they made a STANAG compatible scout rifle but then I realize that's kind of stupid and pointless. But I still want one
Can't find it anywhere else for cheaper, heard it's really good quality. They have a Smith & Wesson MP Shield for $349 as well, I heard that was a good 9mm.
With FFL dealer prices and shipping it will add an extra $42, which still puts it way below the usual $550 I see in stores and such. This is my first pistol, should I "pull the trigger"?
.40 will get the job done, despite all the memery it receives here. For the price, that's an absolutely screaming deal for a quality gun. I say go for it.

I found interest in throwing knifes. Someone doing that here as free time activity or in a sport group? Some advices on them?
1. make sure they are properly balanced for your throwing grip.
2. hammer grip is best grip
3. the tips will get fucked up, accept this, love this, it is fact, it is truth, it is life.
4. learn your distance, your distance is the distance it takes to do a complete rotation/.
5. practice practice practice.
6. throwing knifes are not valid for self defense, don't even try that shit.
7. move the fuck out of Germany to a country where you can have guns.
/vp/ here. What's the best weapon to defend against Team Rocket /k/?
Help, me /k/. You deal with these things all the time.
Really though, I'm looking at picking up a CC licence soon, and I figured with all the recent habbenings going on a thread with general CC tips, advice, suggestions, and recommendations might be a decent idea.
How well does the M1 Garand hold up today? I don't necessarily mean in a strictly military context, but as a rifle in the hands of a citizen.
A 'one gun', if you will, and this question is full spectrum. Durability, accuracy, simplicity, gas system, etc.
Is it fundamentally outdated? Are there rifles which are hands down superior in most if not all respects?
They don't eat modern .30-06 very well. Something about the higher-pressured ammo beating up the op-rod.
You'd have to buy an adjustable gas plug to feed it anything besides M2 ball. The lack of versatility isn't something you'd want out of a "one gun".
what's better to operate in?
Let's take a minute to stop beating the dead horse that is BLM and discuss a more serious matter.
How do we weaponize it?
Instead of zika that makes retarded brainless babys . Make it inject a deadly neurotoxin that kills in 5 minutes with no cure.
How much money would it take to find and acquire one? 6000 usd? I've heard rumors that only around 100 or so units made it into trained citizen hands.Importing them know is nearly impossible Prefer one with the ZEISS SCOPE

That's a clone, stock and grip may be real, or may be repros too. Real PSGs have free float barrel, no front sight assembly, and I've never seen a flash hider on a PSG either. A quality builder may be able to produce one for you, but it won't be HK original.
Since I'm feeling helpful..
NO idea if these guys are legit, just what a google search brought up.
Here's essentially a civilian MSG90.
So I took the old man to the LGS since I needed nugget food and he wants to browse for a new EDC. as I'm browsing the ammo section I hear pops ask the young kids at the counter wearing the signature "team glock" shirt what he would recomend in a double stack 9mm. Of course the kid immediately goes into the case and retrieves a 17. It's like a virus trying to infect everyone it comes into contact with.
For those of you who were in the military: is it hard to kill another person?
I got hit with IDF on a near daily basis which desensitized me to explosions. My first few times getting shot at in hit & runs came as I was exhausted from walking with a pack, and I was too tired to really be shocked.
These things happened for a while before I actually got a chance to shoot back at somebody. When the chance came, I was really not getting the shock of combat all at once, and was firmly in the mindset of not giving a fuck. Shooting back and seeing dead insurgents was a nice feeling. It...

>is it hard to kill another person?
the gun does most of the work
I'm not in military but I'd say no. They've done studies about soldiers in WW2 and they found that like 99% didn't shoot to kill people. It wasn't until after WW2 where they started conditioning soldiers to fire immediately when they see an enemy. So it's probably easier nowadays than before. Now they say 95% of soldiers shoot to kill.
Nigger tried to shoot someone, didn't work. I wonder what went wrong...
