What Taurus guns aren't shit, or is that mainly just an old meme? I've heard their 85 line of revolvers and the beretta copies are good. Lots of people are mentioning the TCP nowadays.
There is NO TAURUS GUN THAT ISN'T SHIT, drill that into your head.
A while back Taurus bought the machining tools from Beretta to make the pt92 and pumped out some decent 92 clones but being Brazilian monkeys they didn't maintain them and new pt92s are just as garbage as the rest of the lineup.
They also had a run of decent 1911s but that's over now too.
For the price of Taurus you would be better off buying literally fucking any other gun, from a hi point to a canik it would be...

Daily reminder that PMAGs are prone to failure when loading on a closed bolt and that Magpul claims it's a feature.
>PMAGs are prone to becoming difficult to insert on a closed bolt, but still overall easier to insert than a fully loaded USGI mag even in this failure mode
Does /k/ name their weapons? Do you actually refer to them by those names when talking to other people?
>Think of 'joke' names for weapons, usually diminutive or having to do with the weapon's flaws.
>Never use names because it still sounds autistic as fuck.
What does /k/ call their favorite boomsticks?
I named my pistol Sinestra.
I was strongly considering getting it etched in Latin on the slide, but decided against it, as invariably it'd be used against me in court if I had to defend myself.
Why do AR pattern rifles have more bolt failures than most of their competitors.
because people buy and use shitty bolts
i know a guy with a fucked up AK receiver, cuz he took a flat and didnt heat treat it, then didnt put ANY sort of finish or protective coat on the receiver so its just a bare metal receiver, which is starting to loosen and is rusted to shit
Cousin says Glock. I say Hi-Point .380
Hey /k/ non-gun owning American here
All this anti gun shilling from the democratic party lately is getting me pretty spooked about the possibility of liberals trying to repeal or restrict 2nd amendment if they gain too much power.
What is the best way to go about buying a firearm for self defense without ending up in some database somewhere? What are some good recommendations for relatively cheap handguns?
Do the Israeli gas masks actually work?
They work just fine when they are fitted and issued, but I wouldn't bet my life on one I just bought off Ebay after it's been God knows where for God knows how long doing God knows what.
On that note, all Canadian gas masks on the open market are either defective or stolen.
How do we make Australia safer mates?
Is a mosin nagant worth making totally tacticool? In practice if I got an after market stock, did the floating barrel thing, recrowned and threaded the barrel, got a muzzle device, bent the bolt, got one of those optic mounts, and a decent optic would it be a semi decent dmr weapon? I want to shoot the cheap ammo accurately. Are there similar solutions?

So...numerous options available to you for merely $50 or so above the going price for a nugget?
Is there any reason whatsoever to buy a mossberg 500 over a Maverick 88? Both are available as field models at my flgs and I was wondering if anyone has any strong opinions on either
Maverick 88 is literally an economy version of the Mossberg 500, with some design changes and non-interchangeable parts to make it cheaper. No real differences in terms of reliability or handling, although the different safety location can take getting used to, and the finish on the Maverick is cheaper than the 500 IIRC.
Hey /K/ommandos looking to buy a flintlock, any adivce, tips, tricks?

Help me get some samples for my class.
The Mogrizz never ends
What are /k/'s thoughts on the M14 EBR? I know you have an opinion on it.
You always do.
1) Get the m1 abrams platform.
2) Remove the old turret with one cannon.
3) Create a new turret with two GAU 8 from the A10.
Voila, no ground infantry can get close to it.
no, no no no.
only one gau-8, in the position where the main gun was.
on the sides of the turret, put two TOW launchers like a bradley has.
use the ammo compartment for the main gun to hold ammo for the gau.
have the brass from the gau eject out the ass of the thing, over the engine exhaust or off the sides of the turret.
