So there's a lot of talk about Medical Marijuana cardholders not being allowed to buy guns. This poses a problem for me because I love guns and planned on being a MMJ cardholder when it gets legalized in my state this November (Florida)

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

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.

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:
>Keltec
>Taurus
>Hi-Point
>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.

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.

I'm not concerned about home invasion, hunting or sport but I do want a gun as a sort of civic duty. So when shit hits the fan I won't be unarmed.

What practical gun would you recommend? I'm looking at rifles or carbines. Something that I could hunt with if necessary. But mostly this gun would be staying locked in the closet except for target practice. I'm thinking some sort of simple and reliable semi automatic rifle or carbine.

Logical increments based on price would be nice.

The SKS isn't necessarily a bad gun; I have one and it's fun and cheap as all fuck to shoot.

However, in today's market, the SKS is expensive for what it is. Commonly, they run at ~$450 in most American markets, while AR's run ~$500-600 for an entry level gun. Comparing the features of the 2 rifles, it just sorta falls to the AR having more bang for the buck anymore.

If you bought your SKS 5, 10, or 20 years ago while there was still a decent price gap, sure, they are certainly not bad rifles, but today, they aren't worth the money since superior weapons are available at near price parity anymore.

>Chrome lining
I wouldn't really worry about whether it's easier to clean: chrome lined bores protect against metal corrosion, and soviet ammo is/was often corrosive.
Basically, the rifle lives longer with a chrome bore.

>Like a yugo piece in a chinese model might cause problems but if they are all the same make it should be ok.

The big issue isn't necessarily cross model, but headspacing. If your bolt and chamber aren't headspaced to one another, then you could have a KB and get rekt, even if all your parts come from the same national variant of SKS.

If you can confirm that the bolt and chamber have proper headspacing, though, fuck whether the numbers match.

>I heard the 556 did more damage despite less mass because it tumbled.
5.56 and 7.62x39 have different advantages and disadvantages that can't really be apples-to-apples compared.

5.56 can certainly do a shit ton more damage to a human target, but if you don't go off studying how barrel length, twist rate, ammo weight, bullet shape, etc, etc work, it can also fail to tumble and turn into a glorified .22lr

got mine for my 12th birthday.. still an amazing gun 20 yrs later, never had a misfire or jam or anything that made the thing not fire on pulling the trigger.. at least 1k rounds through it over those years.. just used it a few months ago, still as solid as ever.. Got it during Clinton years so during the assault ban we got a folding paratrooper stock with bayonet spike etc for $250.. Its a Norinco but I can count on THAT gun. Remember every firearm is different, you need to FEEL how they differ from the same make and model once you have decided on one. Just like a guitar.

Overall for your purpose I recommend a 16 inch ar15 5.56, with maybe a .22 upper for small game hunting thinking long term survival.

Only thing that'd make me question whether it's as old as the rest of it appears, is that it has what looks like a small metal nut on the pommel, affixed to a bit of metal that looks very different to the rest of it.

Still be curious to know if the blade has any writing on it, or if its just some pattern.

Yeah, just noticed hex nut, with cap on it prolly hiding the threads, or locking the nut in place.

I dunno, after market repair maybe? When were threaded nuts and bolts invented?

GENTLEMEN.
Is has come to my attention that Phil Elmore has no entry on the lolcow wiki.

This saddens me. Don't you know that Phil and his Flashlight Fighting is our only hope against the Homeless Menace?

Dumb whore's actually in the hospital right now after blowing up her 870 because she's too stupid to realise that 3" shells are NOT the same as 2¾" . This also isn't the first time she blew up a gun, but it is the first time it wrecked her shit.
