I was eyeing the lc9 for awhile, but wasn't a big fan of the magazine disconnect safety. I've shot both my friends G43 and a rented, shot-to-shit Shield at an indoor range and the weight wasn't a problem at all, with the shield I was able to get a quarter sized groups at 15 yards. Also, why are safeties are not encouraged for ccw? I'd imagine it would be good idea to get one with a safety and just ignore it, better to have the option than not imo.

James Yaeger sold out at some point in time, not sure when but I don't give a fuck about his advice past at least 2011 probably. Example: Canik sent him dozens upon dozens of pistols for free if he would do video's promoting them and using them in his classes as loaned guns. Now of course, the piece of shit UAE/Turkish guns he would have never even touched back in 2008 are the best thing ever. He is a cunt sellout to be honest. He used to talk about how all AK's from Century are shit blah blah blah and now that Century is sending him free AK's, he is all over their taint.

Even still, Glocks, Sig, M&P, H&K, Beretta, CZ will all last you and be reliable barring lemons that do slip out sometimes. I'd be leery of 90% of shit you'd see on forums and shitholes like /k/, people are just talking out of their ass and usually can't even completely strip their guns down to roll pins. People parrot what other more "esteemed" members say and after a game of telephone you get insane horseshit that isn't even close to true. Youtube gun channels have all built this dichotomy of people with 50 subscribers or people with 100k subscribers or more. Mainly due to Google's shit but that is another story. The relatively few channels that are 100k subs or more get free guns sent to them if they will talk up the guns in question. This pisses people off so fucking much for some reason but people like James Yaeger, Hickok45, Gunblast etc are all just gun commercials. None of them will trash any opportunity at free guns/gear. You probably wouldn't either if given the opportunity. Youtube gun channels are rare to have any integrity and be at least moderately known. Yet people eat that shit up like candy.

Get the one without a safety.

Don't get any gun with a magazine disconnect. Most magazine disconnects can be disabled however. Just look it up if you can.

>Why no safety on pistols?
Because they get turned on when they are in holsters due to you walking around all day. Then when you draw the gun, you can't fire without flicking off the safety. Which *could* get you killed or maimed or whatever. If your life is at stake, flipping down a tiny little lever while your hands are shaking, your vision is tunneled and someone is trying to fuck you up is, well lets say it isn't necessarily easy or quick usually. It just isn't necessary. Pistols stay in holsters so something hitting the trigger isn't going to happen unless the gun is in your hand and your finger is on the trigger. Safeties are added shit to deal with while serving no purpose on carry guns. They make sense of rifles. Well at least more sense but on pistols, they serve no purpose if you are carrying it in a decent holster. The holster IS the safety.

Other safeties are just stupid anyways as well. Drop safety is the only safety that should be on pistols.

lc9s PRO does not have mag disconnect

Shit I forget that pretty much all of those guys are shills. I am subscribed to the military arms channel, which is the only gun channel I'm sub'd to I think and I used to like him but jesus fucking christ I get more pissed off the more videos he releases and always says "o i dont git annnnnythin from the manufacturers heh heh" when that fucker is trying to tell me that this piece of shit 400 dollar hungarian mess of a parts kit that wasn't even a real service rifle amd-63 or whatever the fuck is awesome as hell when right about two minutes of research on the forums will tell you that the gun is shit. Or really anything that they review.

There are stories of the hillary hole fucking up S&W revolvers and making guns inoperable while shooting. Some people even have to send it back to Smith and Wesson or a gun smith to get it fixed.

Sad how even gun store employees will regurgitate the dumb shit they see online too, O YE THIS CANIK WILL BE EXCELLENT CHOIC 4 U ITS BETTER THAN A GLOCK and people not knowing any better think they're getting a good deal because its 200 bucks less when in reality the guns arent dick compared to the glocks, m&ps, sigs, even a fuckin springfield xd lol

There's a local gun store near me that I go to regularly and two guys who worked there who were really nice people and smart left because of how retarded firearms sales is. The only reason they did it for any amount of time was because they could get discounts on guns

Gun store employees are there to sell guns. Not to give good advice. I just ignore them. Same at places like Guitar Center or car dealerships.

They youtube guys are faggots for real, no bullshit reviews but they are somewhat of a necessary evil. Google has basically defunded ad revenue for gun channels on Youtube. Facebook and other social media basically just want to outright ban weapons talk and so the only way to keep a channel open is to have someone making it worthwhile. Running youtube is a fucking bitch now. I mean a fucking bitch. I don't do one for guns but I do it for something else and it is literally a part time job to keep a channel running and up to standards. And it is just so easy for Google to say they don't like your video for whatever reason and you're out of any profit from that video that took 8 hours. (They demonetize swear words and guns and other naughty things) So pretty much everyone quits if they aren't big enough to pull in gun companies to send them free shit.

The thing is though, without proles like Hickok45 and FPSRussia, none of the youngsters get into guns. The big owners/operates of the internet such as Google and other social media holders all want guns off the internet completely. And let's be real here, if something doesn't conveniently exist hand served to people on a silver platter now over the internet, it doesn't even exist.

All these youtube gun guys are basically 100% infallible truth machines about guns because they look official and talk with confidence. When most of them are just full of shit. Then you have people running around saying shit they haven't even applied critical thought to. They just take that shit as fact and run with it. It used to be forums were the breeding grounds for this nonsense, now that forums are dying out, it is Youtube. Only now it is FAR harder to convince people out of gibberish because Youtube looks so professional and TV like now. TV still seems to have people mesmerized into thinking that isn't all just a bunch of shit either.

Old owners manuals for Kel-Tec's contained a statement of 6k for their firearms and Grendel was 4k if I remember correctly. Their website used to contain a more robust FAQ section that also stated 6k rounds. Either way, expecting a Kel-Tec to stay fully operational more than 200 rounds is optimistic. Kel-Tec firearms are toys. They are fanciful designs made by a wide eyed machinist and are terribly far from reliable. I'm not saying they will blow up in your hand but they will jam at least 10% of the rounds they fire aside from maybe the Sub2k and the Su-16. Those are the ONLY Kel-Tec designs I've had less than 3 malfunctions to a magazine. Most are just cobbled together plastic turds that fire about 80% of the time. That is simply unacceptable for ANY firearm that isn't a toy range gun. A Kel-Tec will always have a major parts breakage in well over half of their firearms within 2-4k rounds. HOWEVER: That isn't to say you will ever come close to that. NOBODY shoots 10k rounds out any fucking gun anymore. Ignore all those faggots at the range and on forums saying they have 5k rounds out of their piece of shit P3AT. IT IS ALL LIES. Outside of .22lr and shotgun (due to competition) There are exactly 7 firearms I have shot more than 2.5k rounds out of. I shoot a FUCKLOAD. Or rather did at least; I'm out of that expensive shit now. 4 of those guns were milsurp and still had cheap milsurp ammo. These faggots saying they have shot 7k out of their AR, 5k out of their Glock, 4k out of their Kel-Tec are all so full of fucking horseshit it is insane.

>Kel-Tec's are shitty designs and are made very poorly. I really don't like throwing out credentials and either way, you'll have to take my worthless word for it but I know more than enough as to what makes a decent firearm. Kel-Tec doesn't make the cut. (If it makes you feel better, 4th Gen Glocks are pretty fucking retarded)

If the Owner's Manual tells you that your gun is good for 6k. Expect it to be good for maybe half of that. Reliable for a 1/4 of that. If it is a decent design. Most firearms conform to bullshit features rather than simple and pure reliability. Which is the number one factor. Most desig…

I have a similar concern to OP, but concerning retail pot in Colorado.

I currently own a firearm (mosin) but want to sell it. The FF4473 lasts 20 years, but would it still be an issue if I no longer owned guns?

SORRY JUST REALIZED YOU WEREN'T TALKING ABOUT MEDICAL POT but I'm still gonna post this BS. If you're concerned get rid of the gun and you will not have issue. There will be no issues because the 4473 is just a transfer form for a FFL. Having owned a gun and then doing pot or vice versa does not constitute a firearms violation. When they are simultaneous then you have a problem (technically, realistically it's not likely you will have issues because of this)

I'm no lawyer and I'd do some real research into this but technically speaking it'd probably deal with the statute of limitations on lying on a federal document, if you don't have a gun and have a pot card you're fine. Even having a gun and a pot card is a big gray area, you can get fucked for it but it depends on how hard whoever is dealing with you wants to fuck you.

If you get rid of it you should be good, however they recently changed the 4473's so you might be able to get away with saying, oh well I didn't know medical marijuana counted as an illegal substance. (They redid them to include that owning guns and using medicinal or recreational marijuana is illegal)

Honestly if you're worried about it get rid of the gun and you'll be fine. This is all just ridiculous speculation-- I don't see a reason why anyone would want to trace back the date of sale on your rifle to the date of acquisition of pot.

Ofcourse, yeah if you're worried get rid of the gun and I think you'll be 100 percent. If you sell with an FFL transfer then the gun would no longer be in "your name" then and last sale would be to someone else so it wouldn't ever come back to you

Point me in the right direction here guys. I'm familiar (I get the concept at least) with things like case/head separation, double feeds and squib rounds, but what else out there is likely to cause a gun to explode? What's the most common kind of catastrophic failure these days? How often does it happen? Also, is there any way a modern revolver can chainfire?

Also I just noticed in that gif the upper half of the handguard that attaches to the gas tube looks like it's missing. So more than likely some dumbass probably tampered with the tube/piston and then couldn't figure out how to put the handguard back on when reassembling so they just said fuck it and left it as is.

Probably in order of commonality... (Big difference between rifles and pistols mind you)

>Squib+Round behind it. I've seen this FAR more than anything else. Usually bulged barrels result but I still consider it a catastrophic failure whether the gun fails completely or not. Squibs come from no or WAY too little powder in the case. Ammo factories can have this happen rarely and reloaders/competition shooters do this much more frequently due to reloading presses without powder lasers/alarms etc. Competition incentives shooting the weakest rounds possible as well.
>Case failure. Walls thin on reloading and overloaded rounds can just blow the case out without blowing out the barrel. Brass can just fail like all metals.
>Double charge.
>Action failure such as a slide crack, frame crack etc.
>Firing out of battery. Sort of the same as above but it is way more rare.
>Barrels failing.
>Bolts failing.

There are others like using the wrong powder or something but gun explosions are already extremely rare. Another case is some foreign object like a tiny rock hitting the primer just right in an automatic firearm and setting the round off outside of the chamber etc but we are talking absolute anomaly.

>What's the most common kind of catastrophic failure these days?
Probably poorly reloaded ammo by idiots. Barring anything other than factory loaded ammo in safe condition firearms, I guess double charges fired out of handguns that are loosely chambered. Rifles don't explode nearly as much as pistols from everything I've collected. Lots of stuff can go wrong with pistols and pistol rounds by design that slightly increase the chance of fucking up. Pistol "bolts" don't lock in like rifle bolts, pistol barrels are thinner and have feed ramp intrusion, pistol rounds can have the bullet slip back into the case, pistol rounds are easier to slightly hold out of battery etc. KB's are very rare but I'd say they happen more often in pistols than rifles. However, when a rifle goes boom, you're probably going to get really fucked up to where as most pistol KB's just bruise the shit out of your hand and maybe cut you some.

Has this ever been documented in history? before you ask, I'm only wondering out of idle curiosity. I mean, logically, it's had to have happened quite often. A hunter being a master of his weapon and extremely knowledgeable of the land he patrols. They know how to take out a target from some distance away, and know how to move undetected to wild game which have senses beyond a human's (smell, sight, hearing).

Problem is, I've never been able to come across historical records that show this. Whether they joined the military or fought as Guerrillas, possibly guided by and reporting to an actual military in asymmetrical warfare. Surely its had to have happened at some point? They would be valuable guides and scouts at the very least, when you think about it.

I'd be very interested in any historical accounts were hunters made a significant impact in a military campaign.

There are several hunters turned soldiers that went on to do big things, Simo Hayha a.k.a The White Death was a famous sniper who fought the Russians during the Winter War, I believe he killed around 500 or so which is still the highest recorded confirmed kill count.

Ofcourse then there was Vasily Zaytsev(the movie Enemy At The Gates was based on him) who fought in Stalingrad, I'm not sure how much of his "legend" is true and how much of it was the Soviets trying to create a hero to inspire the other troops, but he was a hunter in the Ural mountains since he was a child and that definitely contributed to his wartime exploits.

Those are the two big ones I can think of, I'm no historian or anything but both of those men are great examples of how a skilled hunter can translate to a very skilled soldier.

The movie was 99.99% fiction but I found Zaitsev's memoir and read it a couple of weeks ago. Turns out he liked to throw boxes of hand grenades at the enemy and got bitched out once because he and some other snipers thought it more fun to mow down the enemy with their submachine guns like a common infantry man than to pick off high value targets.

Sergeant York also had a hunting background but I really think there is more of a cultural difference that sets these persons apart that more often then not includes hunting.

I'm sure if you started researching into militia type movements you might find that sort of info. Although likely in that manner it'd go hunter->military-> militia type person \hunter. Not trying to say hunters r all into those sort of groups at all, just that it might be a route for you to look into. I've also read stories about civilian hunters who assisted law inforcement on various levels because the land/wind was very complex and having the knowledge of someone who hunted the area for years benefitted strategy. But I don't have sources for that, just have read about it

This Christmas I got my own safe, got my dad's old 30-06 and 22 lr transferred to me as well as my grandfathers old .308. Also re building a jj Weston double barrel breakaway but more for novelty.(There's were some annoyances getting them back since they were in my dads name at first, then he gave them to my grandfather when his fid card expired, then my grandfather died so the ownership was all up on the air for a bit). So long story short, good Christmas lol.

What I'm looking for now is a couple decent scopes, and a recommendation For a future shotgun. I typically hunt white tail and black bear in Vermont as the seasons overrun. It's pretty woodsy in vt but there's some real nice open fields and ravines I post in as well, so ideally something good for close distance, but say 3" at 100yd would be nice too. Both my guns are Remington 742's semi, 30-06 and .308.
I was thinking something with a 3x-9x or so with a secondary top mount red dot, I know they're around but not sure if that combo is usually good or if you'd recommend against it. Ishoot right handed but am left eyed so a red dot would be nice for that, also with all the brush it seems red dot would make most sense. However a magnified scope would def be nice for those larger ravines and open areas.

Last I'm looking for a shotgun since I live in MA and rifles are only legal for bear here and I'd like to also be able to go for white tail here.

I have family with a lot of stuff I could borrow so anything you'd suggest that was made within the past 20 years or so I may be able to try out first, but any relatively cheap but of course quality options are welcomed for suggestion.

I have an Ithaca 37 defense that I like pretty well. I'd look into some of the new and used Ithaca's. Benelli and Beretta make good shotguns as well, I don't know much about CZ's shotguns but I have also only heard good things about them.

I like Zeiss and Leupold for scopes. My dad has an inexpensive Mueller on a savage 22 that he likes alright. I don't know much about midrange scopes. Nightforce is good too but very very spendy.

The meprolight RDS would be a good option for an excellent red dot that isn't the price of an EOTech (which are ass and don't hold zero) or an Aimpoint. It also uses double A's which is a big deal for me because I don't want to pay 2-5 dollars for a single fucking cr123 battery

Burris and Nikon might be brands to look into as well, I don't know much about them though.

Does anyone know or have the picture of the guy (I think he is/was a general.) disembarking from a chopper (the gulf war?) somewhere in a desert in plain clothes. He has comb over hair, the big "pedophile" glasses and khaki's plus I think a striped shirt tucked in. He has an M4 that he is holding at low ready. There are 4(?) regular armed soldiers around him. Can't remember what kind of chopper is was but I want to say it was an armed twin propeller.

>The picture is pretty historical I believe but I can't find it. There was a spurdo version made of that I've seen. I think the guy in plain clothes is CIA but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advanced, regards /st/.

Or maybe Glock should not make the gap between the frame and magazine so big that you could trap a bear in it.

I put about 700 rounds out my 43 can't say I have any magazine gap problems. Gun works fine I carry it everyday for work so little I don't even have to wear a holster if I don't want to I can just put it in my pocket. To put that in perspective I am a very small person 5'7" 130lbs. I want a glock 19 mostly because of how much I enjoy the 43, my father also wants one because he is quite a bit larger than me and his 43 is just too small for his hands, however he does find it handy when he needs to have a weapon on him or in his car.

Hey guys, long time 420chan'er but I haven't spent much time in /nra/ so sorry if this is one of those threads that come up all the time. I've been looking into getting a 9mm and I think I've narrowed it down to 2 choices, so I was wanting to see if anyone here had any insight into the two pistols I'm looking at.

The first is the pistol in my pic, the EAA SAR K2P. It's a CZ-75 clone with 16+1 capacity. I haven't heard much about this one so any info you guys have would be awesome.

The second is the Taurus PT111 G2, I've heard pretty good things about this one and Taurus in general since the company's management changed and they went about repairing their brand's reputation and quality of their firearms. It has a 12+1 capacity.

Like I said any info is helpful, and sorry again if this is one of "those" threads lol.

Thanks for reading.

Save an extra 100 dollars and buy a used Glock, M&P or CZ. Literally anything is better than buying some shitty EAA or Taurus. Both are impossible to sell as well when you realize what a piece of shit it is. Buy once, cry once.

Seriously, you can go on armslist and get used M&P's and Glocks for 400 or less if you look. EAA and Taurus are shitty guns, don't buy into the money saved fallacy. If you REALLY are that broke, you should spend your money where you actually need it. 100 dollars shouldn't break you. Guns are toys for 99% of people. Buy half decent toys. If you absolutely can't spend more than 300 dollars then buy a CZ999 or FEG hi-power. Any guns used by a military is going to be miles beyond any bullshit EAA or Taurus. If you can put up with a non-9mm, then you can look into Tokarevs/Makarovs. They are cheap and work but there is literally no refinement whatsoever. They will always work but everything else sucks. Basically a Hi-Point but not 5lbs and the size of a cinderblock.

It is your money but the problem is that getting out from under shitty guns is near impossible. You basically end up with a brick of 200-300 dollars wasted when you could have spend 400-500 and got something that will always be worth that much or more.

>Despite retards shitting on them and being armchair experts, 9mm Hi-Points are functional. If you just need something for 100 dollars to shoot some crack head at 4am then Hi-Points go bang everytime you pull the trigger.

Don't buy into the latest "miracle guns" either. These are 9mm pistols that hit the market at 250-320 dollars, claim to be "Glock-Killers" and are almost always made in UAE or Turkey. They get absolute insane hype for 4-6 months and then disappear off the face of the planet. Notable examples are the SCCY CPX-2, Caracal F and another one that is on the tip of my tongue but I can't remember. Guess what? All these guns have yet to run Glock out of business or last more than a year.

As a final note, most "good things" you hear are advertisements. The gun world is like all other consumer market shitfests. Everyone is advertising something and when someone puts money towards something, t…

This, aside from the dissing on hickok45 part.

OP, I've never even heard of EAA before, not to mention the model you're looking at is a clone so I would definitely steer clear if I were you. Wouldn't trust Taurus either, no matter how hard they try to piece together their broken reputation. Avoid these like the plague, in order from least to worst:
>Diamondback, Cobra, Jimenez.

The last three are Jorge and Jamal tier IEDs just waiting to explode in your face. Keltec and Taurus are built better, but still shit. Same goes with Hi-Point; they've built their reputation by making cheap, decently reliable* guns, just fugly as sin.

*The one time I shot my friends Hi-Point (the first and last time I've ever shot one) chambered in 9mm, the safety was backwards and I nearly shot myself, soooo I'd just save 300-350 and get either:
a) S&W M&P Shield 9mm, single stack, 8 rounds, tried and true ccw choice
b) Canik TP9, double stack, 15-18 rounds depending on model, Turk shit but still well made from what I've seen and read.

Just my two cents.

>Kel-Tec is bad designs meant to appeal to people wanting space guns.
>Taurus is cut-rate weapons manufactured by people who don't give a fuck about quality. There are good ones out there. But you are REALLY rolling the dice. Taurus hierarchy is as follows:
Long Rifles/Rossi rifles
Revolvers in small calibers
Revolvers in large calibers
Autoloading pistols
The Judge/Raging Judge/Raging Bull/Raging Boner being the worst

>Hi-Points work but there is absolutely no refinement.
They won't blow up in your face and if you almost shot yourself, you need to learn how to handle a firearm. A safety shouldn't keep you from shooting yourself. Yourself should keep you from shooting yourself. Guns aren't toys. They are deadly objects that demand respect and mindfulness. Learn that shit before you start fucking with them.

>"Ring of Fire" pistols are shit and will have a change of blowing up or just failing in a spectacular manner while in your hand.

Canik TP9's are the latest wonder gun to come out. They are shit, don't hold up to any amount of normal wear, god forbid any level of abuse and are ultimately to be avoided if you need a gun to actually fire reliably. In fact, the Canik was the other pistol I was trying to remember in my other post. What you've read/"seen" is advertisements. These pistols are dog shit. Period. Same with the Caracal and SCCY. The Canik is just the latest iteration and their hype hasn't fully died out yet.

might want to consider waiting and look for the new CZ striker fired pistol. Not much out about it but it could be good. P-07 or P-09 could be good too.

Don't buy a Taurus lol

What country has the best military Reserves in terms of their training,equipment and usability in combat? Inb4 Israel there has to be a more interesting answer than that, but from what I know there pretty good for reservists.

Probably The US. Most states if not all have their own Special Forces in their National Guards. Texas made their National Guard catch wetbacks and drug smuglers so they have field expieeience. The reserves and National Guards also have a ton of vets that just got out of 2 wars.
Second would be Korea. They have a hostile neighbor to the north and war is just a matter of time. The whole country is rather disciplined because of it. Same mandatory military policy as Isreal.
