Got notice today that my silencerco octane 9k was shipped to my lgs. This is my first NFA item and am also waiting for my SBR stamp.
What happens when it gets to my LGS? I show up with money order for stamp and trust paperwork? I have found an engraver that is a prety /k/ dude.
Yeah, show up with your check and paperwork. I suggest you do it Monday to get it postmarked before 41f. Hope that it doesn't get kicked back for some reason.
I'm waiting on my stamps now. My oldest is an eForm1 SBR from March 2nd. You've got some waiting ahead of you.
The colt 901 is not a bad idea for a SHTF rifle.
>ARs and AKs would undoubtedly be the most common "combat" rifles. The 901's upper can be replace by an AR upper, so AR parts could be scavenged for repair easily. That's an advantage guys with SCARs or ACRs don't have.
>If you are running low on 7.62, and can only seem to find .223 or 5.56, you can swap uppers accordingly or vice versa.
>The monolithic upper is a solid piece. K.I.S.S.

I don't think they're producing the 901-16s anymore just the 901-16se which uses some kind of bolt on rail sections or something.
Honestly idk why they haven't come out with a model that uses an M-LOK rail.
I picked up a Ruger AR about a month ago and just now tried to get the handguards off. The things torqued on there so tight I cant unscrew it and Im afraid to damage it. Anyone know how to get these suckers off?
Stay sharp, be safe, I'm Travis Haley and thanks for joining me.
How effective are these rounds? Any experiences or stories where you've had to use them?
>shilling for IMI within 1 minute
What's in the bag, /k/?
What weapon do you choose?
Pic totally unrelated.
What was your first gun, /k/?
I'm looking at getting a .45 caliber HK handgun so I can carry a gun chambered in .45 Super in the woods, but am having trouble figuring out which one to buy. I already have a Glock 20, but don't like it for various reasons and want something higher quality.
Costs about $1000 more than I want to spend, but seems to have an edge on the other guns as it was the only one designed specifically to shoot .45 Super instead of just .45 ACP +P.
Used guns are fairly affordable, around $600-700. Trigger reach is too long for my hands in double action, though. LEM is workable, but weird. Because the reach is still so long, I found my finger shifting on the trigger in between shots. I think I could make it work if I carried it cocked-and-locked, but none of my other carry guns have a manual safety, so this may not be such a good situation when a bear decides to charge at me in the woods.
Can't seem to find any for under $900-1000, new or used. Haven't been able to find them in gun stores to hold one either, but I have heard that they have a shorter trigger reach than the USP. Might be the best option, but need to confirm the trigger reach details. If it's the same as a P30, then it would be workable.
>USP .45 Compact
About as affordable as the full size USP, if not moreso because of surplus police guns in the market. CDNN has brand new ones right now for $700. Fits my hand very well, and I like the feel and ergonomics...overall, my favorite feeling gun, but not sure if it would really be a good idea to shoot .45 Super out of this compact. Has a low 8 round capacity, but factory "elephant foot" 10 round magazines are available, and bring the total round count to an acceptable number for me.
Have not had a chance to hold one. Same capacity as USP Compact. Seems like basically the same gun as the USP Compact except for ergonomic differences, and costs $300 more.
Which one would /k/ buy for herself?
What video game portrays modern weapons the best? Bullet drop / Weapon sounds / Malfunction issues etc. etc.
Escape From Tarkov looks pretty good so far.
It's starting to approach reality in weapon customization, treating guns not as one solid piece but as every little component fitted together.
more on that
takes more then one round to kill
no wounded just health bar/number so you take 1/2 a mag from an ak and are still running around but take one more shot and now you are dead
no video game portrays modern weapons correctly
What do you guys recommend for an inexpensive drill press that won't shit the bed on me or fuck up my 80% projects?
Not OP, but I have a drill press and recently purchased a couple of 80% lowers to play with. I went with the easy jig route instead because it's a lot quicker and easier than using a drill press. Routers are more naturally suited for completing 80% lowers than a drill press.

Target practice general thread?
Hey /k/, been practicing on my P229. I have less than 1000 rounds through it but I'm struggling to train out the transition from DA to SA. As I pull the trigger I must be tightening my grip and pulling it down and right correct? Should I hold tighter from the start or looser and just learn to relax?
Also, what sort of drills do anons like to do with pistols?
>draw from holster, control pair center mass (from DA to SA)
Pic related, at 10 yards, doing drill in greentext.
Check this out, would this be a cool way to practice fundamentals? Instead of going to range I could shoot .22LR in back yard and the neighbors wont be disturbed.
>live on 13 acres so am legally aloud to shoot shotgun/pistol in back yard
>shooting 200 rounds of 9mm every saturday might piss off neighbors
>so most of time shoot at range
>shoot .22LR and no one would even notice

This is my p226 at 10 yards the flyer in the corner was my DA.
> first time shooting it
You seem to yank the trigger a bit (if you're righty). A smoother, straight back triggerpull should help you out.
Your grip should be firm & solid, but no gorilla gripping. You don't need to try & crush your firearm.
Also try push/pull:
Push forward with your main hand and pull back towards you with your support hand wrapped around the front of the pistol grip. It might give you more stability.
