Hi. I'm looking for an AR-10 that's light enough that I can shoulder it and shoot it comfortably. I've got a Trijicon Accupoint sitting around as well so I'll have a good optic for it.

I was initially looking for M&P 10's but I can't find them anywhere and nobody's distributors has them but I saw a Daniel Defense DD5V1 at one of my local gun stores that looked really good. You guys think I should get one?

I should say I'm not particularly interested in a SCAR due to the magazine cost. The Daniel is also more accurate in theory.
god bless

I don't like being that guy, but I prefer Colts over most AR's. The only reason being is I got into guns about 6 years ago and back then there weren't as many factory options that were as well priced as a Colt 6920 for the same amount of quality.

Now you can have FN's, BCM is great, the value guns like the M&P15 and AR556 are at great price points but do cut a few corners to reach that. Building a rifle is awesome too- I built a 20" 5.56 ar on a Aero upper and lower with a FN barrel, a sick ass geiselle rail and trigger, and a vltor A5 stock that is so goddamn fun to shoot and even with the A2 birdcage has nearly no recoil.

A buddy of mine has a Daniel AR15 that is real nice, I think its the DDM4V5 and it has never jammed. It's pretty accurate even though he only has iron sights on it.

I have a colt and can confirm. Feels better in hand and shooting. Buddies have a ruger and a mnp, and even they can't deny.

Idk if you notice this, but the actions on Colts feel like they're greased all the time, especially when compared to M&P's and Rugers and even some BCM's

Please offer insight why, as well.

>1945 SKS (Russian)

These things are pretty rare to find. Had a service life of 2 years before the AK-47 took over. The shape of this rifle and bayonet makes me super excited for whatever reason. I admire reliability over anything in mechanics, and this is no slouch being Russian and all. I've seen banana clip conversions and plastic mods to make it look and feel modern, but the wood and stripper clips is what gives this mofo so much character. I suppose you can compare it to the same affiliation people have for revolvers. Oldies but goodies.

Whatcha got guys?

tl;dr - yep, it's bs
I make my own lead bullets, so I have a pretty good idea of what the raw material costs of just the projectiles would be. A 26 lb lead brick runs about 50 USD (not including shipping), or 3640 grains per USD. Given the current exchange rate of .783 CAD per USD, that becomes 2850 gr per Canadian dollar. So completely disregarding fabrication and distribution costs for the standard 40 grain round nose, $5 would buy 365 projectiles, give or take a few.

A quick survey of .22s from online stores with the .ca domain shows American Eagle (lol irony) boxes of 500 going for 36 CAD, which would be ~$28 in burgerstani jewgolds. At 5.6c per round, that's great compared to the current US market, but not unbelievably so. In fact, that's about the same price as we had in those heady days before the 2008 elections. Thanks, Obongo.

Dammit, I meant 0.783 USD per CAD. Maple syrup dollars have less purchasing power than mcburger dollars. I need sleep. At least the math still checks out.

The first production SKS rifles were produced in 1949 and continued being produced in the Soviet Union until 1956. The SKS did not have a short service life in the Soviet military. The AK didn't really kick it to the side until enough AKMs were produced so they remained in service until the late 60s/early 70s. Soviet made SKS rifles aren't even rare.

Hello /nra/

I am going to buy my first pistol in the coming week or two. Currently my only firearm is an old bolt action rifle. I have fired pistols maybe 5 times in my life. I know the simple rules of gun safety, and that's about all. What is a good type of gun and sort of place to acquire it for an idiot with no knowledge or experience? Should I buy it at a local gun shop or online? Any input appreciated.

Budget is $500 or less. Was hoping to pick up some ammo with the weapon too.

Reason for firearm ownership is practicing at the range, and self-defense for the home.

Feel the grip and make sure you like the sights before you purchase any handgun, glock is an easy first choice if your area isn't in the middle of a price spike. Bersa has good budget guns. CZ has some old models that are usually under 500

CZ P-07 or P-09 could be a good choice because of the price. Think about guns like the Caniks, Grand Powers, SD9's as well. That's all I can think of off the top of my head that fits your price range new.

If I were you I'd find a local gun store or two with good selections so you can hold some guns. Personal preference is king and don't let the clerks sell you something you don't want.

Smith & Wesson SD9 VE. I got mine for $300 with a serpa holster and a pox of hornady hollow points. Its basically a Glock but way cheaper. I have one and I love it.

This right here. It so much like a glock that from what I've heard they owe money to Glock each time one is sold.

Its pretty much everything you're looking for, good range gun, good home defense. As the guy who sold me mine said, "If I had to storm the Kermlin with only a handgun, this is what I'd take."

Take down lever is a bitch though.

I'm starting to get really interested in Archery as a hobby - target, not hunting. Any recommendations for a mid-level compound, and/or recurve? I like the idea of both. Would prefer something beyond a beginner that I won't grow out of quickly.

I say go recurve if it's just a hobby, I have both and the compound is for hunting and recurve is for fun.

i've got a 35# bear takedown recurve, and i think it's pretty much exactly what you're looking for (though you'll want a can of paint). should be less than $150US, target and arrows included

I second sammick. I have a 55# sammick recurve takedown bow for hunting deer, it was just over $200us ordered online from an archery shop that was out of state.

It's a beautiful piece of work, and I would say mid level considering it's much better than anything you'd find at Walmart, but not nearly as expensive as some of their recurve bows which went upwards of $600.

I had to buy my own target and arrows, but that'd be maybe another $50 for the target plus half a dozen arrows with bullet tips

I have a pair of Rothco Jungle Boots, even a pair of tan ones while on active duty.

The tan pair had the heel literally rip off the front while on patrol, so they were junk and lasted maybe 2 months. The Vietnam jungle boots have lasted for over 2 years now, I wear then hiking and camping a lot.

Another one is Sturm-Miltec
