You know what, let me just append one reconsideration to this: Don't even hold the nitrile glove onto the handle with painter's tape, use a rubber band to keep it in place instead--I was thinking that since painter's tape is designed to use minimal adhesion and come off easy and cleanly it would be a suitable choice, but upon further consideration, I think maybe there still might be some risk of peeling off some finish on the handle, which would obviously be detrimental.

>inexpensive. Swords are expensive I know, but I'm looking for something in the $100-250 range

The modern use of metals and other hard materials favors bludgeoning over keeping an edge, assuming you want this weapon for legitimate combat instead of a stylish/sadistic meme tool. For utility I would reccomend /k/'s beloved spetsnaz shovel.

No one will question you keeping a finely sharpened digging tool nearby until you split into the skull of an aggressive crack addict and bury your short lived rival utilizing only one piece of steel for both.

If you carry a get home bag what's your EDC? I was thinking of getting a WYNEX molle pouch, attaching it to the inside of my bag, and filling it with a 24 hour kit focusing on food, water, first aid, and a change of clothing. I could expand on it from there. I was also thinking of picking up a Canadian Red Cross to pick out more stuff which might be useful in that 24 hour period (pic related)

Posting this here because prepping and EDC probably fits best here

if you live so far from home you need a daypack to get home you fucked it up and in a car you should have a blanket, car-specific items (jumper kit, fuel, tools, donut tire, etc) and maybe a box of protein bars and some gatorade or something

I would skip the change of clothes for a 24 hour kit. Maybe just a pair of socks since those are small, have multiple possible uses and dry feet can make a big difference.

My GHB is actually a tool box in my truck and it contains mostly food (dehydrated) and related gear like a cookpot and folding stove. Obviously because it's a truck, I also carry jumpers, a spare, a couple of gallons of water and a 2 gallon van of mix gas for my chainsaw that can also he used as emergency truck fuel. Another thing I have with me is a pile of knives, mostly fixed blade.

If I had to make a dedicated EDC GHB I would include a compass (small, cheap, rugged), a small 1st aid kit (antiseptic wipes, antibiotic ointment, super glue, ace bandage, bandaids, antihistamine tabs, caffeine tabs), a roll of duct tape (skip the roll and wind a 10 foot piece of tape around a sharpie pen), a couple of BIC lighters, extra socks, and some kind of multitool. If you wear corrective lenses you should carry a spare set, even if they're swim goggles.

As for food and bev, water or Gatorade is a good idea, but you don't need food for a 24hr bag. If you insist on putting some emergency calories into your kit I'd stick with hard candies for carbs for a quick energy boost. Also, water shouldn't be part of your GHB. That should be a stand alone item that you always have with you.

While you're right, they don't last at the pressures modern guns operate at. Maybe in a shotgun application, but rifles and pistols nowadays are way more powerful than back then. There's a reason why the barrels are steel and the projectiles are brass and copper now instead.

I ordered a GST-9 polymer 80% frame in FDE because the only other option was black and I've seen pics of P80 polymer frames that have been dyed with RIT fabric dye and the results aren't too bad. I also found an article (https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/how-to-dye-your-polymer-gun-parts/amp) that went over the difference in results between different brands of polymer, for instance SIG polymer tends to be slow to take up the dye but results in fairly bright colors, while Magpul takes up the dye quick but has more muted results. The general consensus is that white polymer works best, but the author of the article also tested some FDE frames. So now I've seen P80, SIG and Magpul polymers , all in FDE, dyed using RIT, but my frame is a GST-9 from 80-lower, which I haven't seen done. Does anyone have any experience dying these frames? How did it turn out? What was your process and 2hat would you have done different, if anything? I suppose if nothing else I can always do cerakote, but that's more than I'd like to spend on cosmetics.

I can't bear the thought of doing another FDE frame with a black slide. That just bores the crap out of me. Pic related, it's a GST-9 frame in FDE

I dyed some foliage green Magpul furniture in the past. Pic related, sorry it's kinda hard to see though. I put in 2 stocks and 2 grips into a boiling Rit Dye bath for ~20 min. It turned out slightly darker than expected, but that's because I didn't check between 5 min and 20. It's doable.

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?

You've already managed to prove within just 3 sentences that you dont know fuck all about your tool. There's no such thing as a non-lethal strike. Its either a lethal or less than lethal strike, with the second only always marginally capable of causing eventual death.

Buy some pepper spray if you can't handle the fact that a guaranteed non-lethal strike isn't even possible. Always be mentally prepared to end someone's life by accident or if necessary if you ever plan to use it against someone.

I used to carry one of these because it's very good vs knifes and that's what most people carry if they do have a weapon.

What other weapon do you use for everyday carry or think is the best to have on hand in case shit goes down, besides a gun.

Walking with a cane is a pretty good weapon too. And no one cares about someone having a huge cane.

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!

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!
Rebecca Blytheman - Thu, 24 Dec 2015 09:38:28 EST NGqq+rMd No.41946 Reply

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.

Reading William Gibson's "Zero History".

A large plot point is the civilian market for tactical gear, he actually drops the terms "operators", "mall ninjas", and "gear queers", and one of the villains is a fashion designer with special forces pretensions, who acts like a spy in a movie, and is after a coveted military contract to design uniforms for the US.

The protagonists' employer, Hubertus Bigend, a sort of meme and trope savvy Lex Luthor type, mentions a sort of psychosis endemic to the special forces, that they're promised that their training will qualify them to do anything, and they end up believing it, so they become sort of self-hypnotised con artists who believe their own pitch, and you end up with unqualified, delusional ex-soldiers teaching anti-terrorist and interrogation techniques to third world police and militaries.

So, read anything topical lately?

I'm thinking of putting together a LR target rifle, and I'm having trouble deciding on which caliber to go with. On the one hand, 6.5 CM has better long range stats, but .308 is much cheaper and easier to find. Just to have some stays to look at, the 6.5 goes transonic at around 1500 yards while the .308 is transonic at a little less than 1000. I'm not sure the extra 500 yards of effective range with the 6.5 is actually worth it, especially considering the cost of both ammo and the upper vs the .308.
