I recently invested in an expandable baton. My first course on defensive techniques is in march, till then I either plan on playing with this thing every night till i feel comfortable carrying it or sticking it in a drawer till march. I've spent hours on the web watching videos on the "proper" use of these and I feel i understand the concept of lethal and non lethal strikes..my question is; if i hypothetically draw one of these shouldn't I feel my life is in danger? and in that case shouldn't a lethal strike be justified?

lol, you guys. The reason I dealt with the drunk thief with a baton rather than a firearm was because I could clearly see that he was not going to be much of a physical threat to me. I believe in the escalation of force that I was trained to use in the army. That is, using the minimum amount of force necessary to pacify a threat. In this case, all I had to do to stop this guy from stealing my tenant's bike was to assert myself with a flashlight and a baton. There was no need to come out with my AK charged and ready. In the other circumstance, where the guy had a knife and was threatening to kill one of my tenant's, it became necessary to show that I had a firearm and was willing to use it if he tried to harm anyone.

I really don't like doing this kind of thing, I don't think it's cool, and it actually makes me feel bad and kind of regretful when I have to confront someone with a weapon. I wish I didn't have to do it, but like I said, if I didn't, I know that no one else around here would. People would just be walking off with bikes and attacking each other and breaking into places and no one would stop them. I know for a fact that none of my tenants own a firearm, and the cops can take between 30 minutes and in one case over 10 hours to respond to threats, violence, or gunfire. So it's pretty much up to me, even though I'm naturally a laid back kind of guy. Such is life in the hood.

RCMP can eat shit. This isn't a military junta. They don't have the power to enforce their will across the country, and if they come for the rifles a second time the risk of officers being shot to death is going to go up, not down. Most back woods guys will bury their guns, but a small number won't tolerate the intrusion.

We should get rid of the RCMP completely. If Alberta had invested the oil money properly then maybe they could have their own police force and not have to deal with an agency as corrupt as the RCMP.

Welcome to Canadian gun laws. Back when our current firearms act was being drafted, a bunch of busy bodies with no knowledge of firearms thumbed through an issue of Guns Digest magazine and circled all the 'scary' looking guns to be made prohibited. Yes this actually happened, it is not urban legend, this is the type of legislation we are dealing with.

That's why the FAL, G3 and Dragunov are prohibited, but the M14 is completely non-restricted. The Famas and Steyr Aug are prohibited, but we have the Tavor (since it came out after the laws were drafted). The AR15 and all variants are restricted by name, but the Mini-14 is non-restricted. Anything with a Kalashnikov action is prohibited, but we are awash in non-restricted $200 SKS's...

Then there's mag limits; 5rds for non restricted long guns, 10rds for pistols/restricted guns. But if you have a pistol mag that fits into a non restricted long gun you can use that in the long gun to legally have 10 rounds.... Oh and there is no magazine limits for .22's, unless it's a pistol, then it is still 10 rounds even though it's still the same .22.....

Hello. My grandfather passed away recently, and left me his father's M1903 rifle. I am told he used it to train troops in Chile during WW2. My grandfather had it restored by a gunsmith a few years ago. It still has the original cleaning kit in the flip-up butt compartment, as well as its cloth strap.

I have a few questions: how can I identify the specific model I have? What type of ammunition does it fire? Is it safe to fire at the range? I am told the gunsmith said the boring and chamber are in fantastic shape. It has a metal plate on the bottom. Is it possible/advisable to modify this to accept magazines, making it semi-automatic rather than bolt-action? Would this make me a tacticool fag ruining a piece of history?

Thoughts and opinions appreciated. I would have included a picture of it but I don't have a camera, and my phone is broken.

Yeah, you also dont need a clip you can feed in five rounds into the magazine and then chamber one. I would not modify it as it has some historical significance in your family and will be more valuable if left as is. This is assuming that its still setup like the military rifles were. On the receiver of the rifle you can look to see the manufacturer of the rifle which will also be another point in determining its worth, it should say something like Springfield or Smith Corona or some shit.

What are you basing that off of? I don't think you can back up your claims of "most criminals don't have guns..."


For example, look at the UK, Australia or any other country that has a ban or prohibition on guns/firearms. Guess who has guns, the criminals, because they don't care if they are breaking the law by owning a gun.
Here is a study done by Harvard University that goes over a few known statistics relating to the ban. https://cdn1.sph.harvard.edu/wp-content/uploads/sites/1264/2012/10/bulletins_australia_spring_2011.pdf

Sadly not a lot is known about the illegal firearms there, which are all held by criminals; other than they do exist.

Oh damn, completely did not notice that I was already posting in this thread.

Back to responding! Well, I base my experience with criminals, based on my past decade of surrounding myself with criminals. Sweatty stupid mobsters (there's a reason they need a strong centralized leadership... most of them have no leadership ability beyond paying strippers and buying drinks.), run of the mill thugs, tons of drug dealers (no shit, drug dealers! WoooOOooOOoo ), and for some fucking reason, muggers seem to like me... I donno where I was going with this exactly, but I've known enough criminals in the USA to know that there's maybe 1gun for every dozen people who want to use it, and it'll get traded and tossed around until it's lost or ditched.

Of course, there's 10guns in the hand of everyone who will NEVER use the thing, lol. Fucking Merica.

Sup. I don't have any gun forum accounts so this is the best place I can do.

I recently got a Vortex Spitfire 1x for really cheap and I'm having some really weird issues. I've never used tactical optics or any of that shit so if I put this on a rifle I want irons to be good and the optic just there as an aid. So this is what is going on that is fucking with my brain.

>Sight rifle's irons in.
>Apply scope.
>Sight in scope.
>Try iron sights as co-witness.
>Can't hit shit.
>Zero Irons with optic on the rifle.
>Can't hit shit with irons when I take optic off.

Obviously this is making the optic worthless because if it broke and I had to take it off I would be fucked because I would have to rezero or if it broke but I could still look through it I would be fucked if the irons were zero'd with it off. If that makes sense....

Anyone know what is going on here? I'm guessing it is an issue with parallax. While it is "non magnified" it is still 1x scope and the front sight is slightly out of focus. Maybe the slight magnification is messing with the irons alignment? I don't know how the red dot's with magnifiers and all that tacticool shit works so I don't know if they have these problems as well.

Not sure what you asking...

I sighted the irons in. They are accurate and hit where I am aiming.

I added the scope, and if looking through it, using iron sights, they are about 3 feet to the left or right, (Can't remember) when I shoot using irons through the optic. If I sight in the irons so that they are on target, looking through the scope; they are inaccurate with the scope taken off.

You're home in your living room enjoying a nice movie on HBO.

Someone breaks in with intent to rob you.

He enters the living room and you, being a well armed supporter of the 2nd Amendment, unholster your weapon, swing around from your couch and land one perfectly placed shot in his mouth.

Now, the intruder is laying propped up on your wall blood pooling underneath his body. His jaw is halfway hanging off his face, he's gurgling and blood is spurting out of the open wound on his face, mixing with saliva and other fluids from his now gaped open mouth.

He's still alive! Albeit soon to depart this world.

My question to you is this: Do you finish him off? Put him out of his own misery for his own sake? He's clearly no longer a threat, and any forensic pathologist would be able to determine the second bullet was not necessary.

Do you let this poor creature who you have brilliantly subdued with your expert marksmanship and 2nd Amendment rights suffer what could be minutes of excruciating pain while you sit and watch waiting for the police to come?

Stand up for yourself. Someone gets into your home take them out, this isn't a movie line kinda thing, you've never been shook up by something like that I can tell, you don't know how where to draw the line.

You need to though or it's not going to end well for you.

A dead home invader, if you think will get you a murder charge, leave, burn your house down. You're alive, your family wasn't raped at gunpoint, that's the important thing, not this cuk legal bullshit the police will put you through.

Some cops understand the sanctity of a person's home still you know. Some do. A lot don't.

Hey /NRA/ I dont mean to make this political so i wont but I want to buy a gun because I am concerned about where this country is headed and I am starting to feel unsafe.

My question is, does any gun owner here cope with severe depression or other mental instabilities? I have never been diagnosed with depression but i dont need a doctor to tell me how i feel. i want to buy a gun for self defense, but i am worried that if i hit one of my lows I might crack and put the barrel down my own throat. I have not been suicidal in years but once in a while i will have my moments. Some of my moments are drug induced (see how you feel after a month long cocaine binge), so if i were to own a gun i would cut down my drug and alcohol use to a minimum.

I dont think i would kill myself, life is starting to get pretty good, but I still have some anxiety over it because of how I used to be. Do you guys think its a bad idea for me to own a gun? I Have never attempted suicide but pulling a trigger would be pretty easy. If i do buy a gun it will be unloaded and locked in a safe while I'm at home.


i thinking about buying one of these, USP 9mm, for CC. Though I don't know how willing the Orange County Sheriff's department would be to issue a permit to a 21 year old.

I abhor this mentality. The right to bear arms is inalienable and irrespective of social class. I'm not even anti-capitalist, but this line of thinking is retarded. You think owning guns is just some cool hobby for big boys with financial stability that have proved themselves worthy of a Boomstick badge?

I'm not even poor or black, but poor people need guns the most. If anything, the wealthy white people with their gated subdivision, ADT security, and fast police response need guns the least. Cultured and well-mannered black men need guns more than anyone else. They're the most common victim of gun violence. Yet what does our country do? Brainwash blacks into thinking we need to ban guns, pass laws that prohibit importation of cheap firearms (oh no Saturday night specials), and require additional fees for permits/licensing that the working poor can't afford.

When I was much younger at 18 I scrounged up $180 from a summer job and bought my first gun, a used as fuck Taurus j frame 5 shot .38spl. It was not a looker, and I bought from a private sale. It worked fine but was extremely heavy. I couldn't afford much else; I had to bargain for 5 hollow points because we couldn't afford a whole box along with all of our bills at the time (hollow points are around $1 each, and I figured 5 shots of performance followed by a speed loader filled with target ammo was better than a box of bullets sans speed loader under the bed). I only had the chance to shoot maybe 25 rounds through it. Our college town was a total dump full of crime and problems. I wanted my gf (now wife) to at least have something in case I wasn't home.

I was staying over at my gf's tiny ghetto apartment, and at around 1am someone broke the sliding glass door. They shattered the whole thing. I ran downstairs and saw at least two people in the dark, one was pulling at a TV plugged into an original xbox and the other guy was just walking in my direction, toward the stairs. I don't think they even saw me.

I only fired one shot, I was super nervous and inexperienced, and all of them ran out fast as fuck. As far as I know I didn't hit anyone, but they were coming towards the stairs man, with two college-aged women sleeping upstairs. Who knows what the fuck could have happened if there was up to 3 guys. That TV was our only luxury item besides our laptop; if it had been stolen we would have been totally screwed on our quality of life.

Now it's years later, we have more money and a few firearms but good quality, gained lots of experience from practice at the range, enjoy trap and skeet, live in a nicer area, attend additional schooling, and yet I haven't had to fire a round at another human being ever since. Not that I haven't had to use it in self-defense since then, but I've never discharged another round at a living target.

tl;dr, but nobody in this thread is saying that poor people don't deserve the second amendment or whatever else you think this thread is about. This thread has been entirely about how much of a piece of shit hi points are and how for even just a little bit more money you can get a much, much better gun.

Cool fiction story though. I especially like the whole bartering for five hollow point bullets part. Nigga you can get like 25 of those things for like 15 bucks, you realize that right?

Hey guys. I've been thinking about buying a pistol for self defense for a long time. Especially now following a string of robberies and violent crimes not too far from my neighborhood.

When I was 16, I was experiencing suicidal thoughts and I willingly admitted myself to a psychiatric ward. I'm in my 20's now and I realize that it was all just whiney bullshit and I have ABSOLUTELY no intention of harming myself or others. I am not currently, nor have I ever, been on any antidepressants or other medications to manage my depression. I just grew up and got over it.

My question is whether or not this teenage episode would impact my ability to buy a pistol now. Any advice would be very much appreciated!

It could be, there are a lot of lawyers who will help you expunge a record if it's necessary.

Voluntary commitment should be a sealed record but I'm unsure, a lot of laws on the books are very police-state where self incrimination rules the day.

You were also a minor so there's that, if anything it being an actual impediment to ownership should be easy to expunge given the circumstances (minor age, voluntary commitment)

What state are you in? Some states won't even take a full psychiatric insanity record as a disqualification, others are very nitpicky and into the whole "we need mental health checks" mantra (which I personally don't believe in, shooting sprees happen not because of mental health or firearm availability, they happen because of our disjointed society being victimized by psyops).

Your odds look pretty good, I'd say you'll be buying in no time.

Get in contact with a 2nd amendment lawyer asap if you have doubts or problems. Just go into a shop and try to buy one first.

Op the information we need at the moment is where do you live like what country and if it happens to be USA what state

that is the sort of information that will impact whether or not you can buy a firearm

I personally get so weary of seeing these types of threads here

As for the United States of America for the most part the only thing that will prevent you from buying a fire arm is a felony.

Background checks for mentally stable or unstable people in USA for the most part is nonexistent.

and even if you do get flagged they are gonna pull the file and put you on a three day delay while it goes under review its not like the police are gonna show up and kick you in the nuts (unless your a felon)

also you dont have to buy a gun from a licensed dealer even if you get stopped through that method in most places in the USA you can just buy a gun private sale from another citizen there is no background check just a bill of sale.

OP here. Sorry for the delayed response, guys. For those of you who asked, yes I am a US citizen and I live in Pennsylvania. Also, the worst crime currently on my record is a speeding ticket. I formerly had a juvenile record which included a citation for misdemeanor possession of cannabis. I never actually took legal action to get it expunged, but I had an internship in the pediatric wing of a local hospital a few years ago which required me to get numerous clearances and background checks from the local police department, the FBI, etc. and I had absolutely no issues getting accepted for the internship so I am sure that my criminal record is totally clean. Like i said, my concern was more about my mental health coming into question if I went to go buy a gun. What you guys have said so far is very promising, so I think I'll just stop pussyfooting around and go to a gun shop to get the process started. Thanks guys!

Here's the problem: you need it expunged. For firearm purchases, sealed is not good enough.

ATF form 4473 requires you to disclose whether you have been committed to a mental institution, either voluntarily or involuntarily. So either you are going to:

A) Answer yes and be denied purchase, or

B) Answer no, be committing a felony for providing false statements on ATF 4473, and be subsequently caught when you fail your NICB check

You need to have the record expunged. Firearm background checks are different from security background checks for employment. You can still fail a firearm background check for a mental health commitment, either voluntary or involuntary, even if the record is sealed. This is due to ass-backwards provisions contained within 1960s era gun control legislation that was originally designed to prevent black people from being able to buy guns.

People who say "oh the US has lax gun laws" have no idea what they are talking about. The laws are incredibly strict for all the wrong reasons and having drug crimes or mental health commitment or even domestic violence infractions on your record will indeed affect your ability to be eligible to complete a firearm transaction, even if they are on your juvenile record, and even if they are sealed.

I'd suggest you talk to an attorney before attempting to do a purchase, because your current legal state may cause you to be ineligible.

A friend of mine is interested in selling me his bushmaster AR chambered in 7.62x39 for $400. Considering I paid $500 for a new in box century arms ak47 five years ago (I sold it) I'm assuming this is a good deal, but I don't know much about AR's other than that I've heard bushmaster is a good brand. It's registered and mint condition, but I don't know if I should spend $400 on that, or just pick up an SKS for $300.

Can somebody who knows about guns tell me if I'm an idiot?

The guy could have 100 round belts at home And it wouldn't be hard to make the AR Full auto and but on a pistol grip. I bet he has everything lying around out home ready to go when the Chinese invade or something.

Used to work at a class III dealer in VA. We sold a thompson M1, an MP5, an M60, an M2, but the crown jewel we sold was a prototype 90mm anti-tank gun called the T8. Here's a pic of a non-functioning one, but the one we transferred was the real deal, you can see videos of it on youtube. It sold most recently for 250k.
