Anybody know some great places to buy swords online? I realize this isnt google, but I (for some reason) trust you folks better than other online sources. Looking for the following features in a sword:

>simple design. Looking for function, not flashiness
>inexpensive. Swords are expensive I know, but I'm looking for something in the $100-250 range
> looking for a short sword or a dirk
> sturdiness and reliability

After looking at many sword reviews and doing research I settled for a 1050 tempered steel katana from Kult of Athena. Its a pretty good sword, my biggest complaint being that the lack of self retention in katanas makes the sword fall the duck out of its sheath. Never stress tested the sword in combat but that had been my experience thus far.

I found one of these online from Ebay, it was forged from railroad spikes. Thick and sturdy... inexpensive as well. The grip it came with was cheap leather so I wrapped my own handle.

It's thick enough to be used as a machete and has the aesthetic of a saber, perfect for outdoor excursions. It is also not too long about the length of a machete and with my own handle wrap is quite comfortable. It's everything I have wanted in a sword, plus I won't feel bad about beating it up or getting it dirty. Just needs some oil to keep it clean and some sharpening once in a while...

Came with a nice scabbard too.

Oils can go a long way to keep your blade from rusting but should it ever get any rust (same goes for armor) you can always use some white vinegar and some steel wool to scuff it away.

Here is the method used for wrapping the handle of my blade:

You don't have to use paracord, any worthy material will do. You can apply this method to more than just blades, for example an axe, a spear, a club, a scabbard etc. Use it how you please.

Everything you have ever held, experienced, and known will die and be forgotten to the ages. Earth will die and never be remembered. Cherish this fact, it is the only truth there is. Don't get caught in their games, get yours and fuck everyone else.

A young corporal jumps into an icy blast from a douglas DC-3 having been called upon in the name of righteousness. Unfortunately, his reserve chute malfunctions causing the suspension lines to wrap around his arms, legs, neck, and the connectors of which to crack his skull. The field medics having been happy that a chute hasn't failed for some weeks, much to their disdain, see the young man crash to the ground in a fountain of blood with their comment to follow, "what a hell of a way to die!"

but because of the republicans or white people or Jesse Jackson or whatever guess what: it turns out that it was all of a waste for nothing! because George HW Bush or George W Bush or Lyndon Johnson or Vietnam, everyone who has ever died has died as a waste for nothing.

What a happy thought that one is, what a nice world to live in! Let me know when world war 3 starts, i'll be in a broom closet crying for it. There's a lot of power in storytelling. People like that other guy can get fucked.

so in light of the rioting seriously considering buying babby's first gun, but not sure where to start. for context i live in Washington state, in an apartment.

1) what do i get?

Would like to keep it under or around $500 before taxes/fees. Thinking handgun (Glock?) or shotgun. Handgun seems like the more obvious choice being in a tiny apt, but it also seems generally more expensive and legally more of a pain in the ass (waiting period, other state laws if I move, etc.). Shotguns seem cheaper and easier to acquire but where do i put the damn thing after including safe storage? Also seems like it'd be more cumbersome to pull out/get ready in an emergency. Is buying used okay?

2) Where and how do I get it?

I mean obviously i could just walk down to a gun store, but is that really the best way? Are there online options or other venues that I should be considering? Anything to watch out for regarding bad deals? And if going the in-store route, anything to prepare aside from ID?

Also hopefully gun store clerks aren't gonna be condescending to gun noobs. Also also considering a quick training session or two that they all seem to offer.

Chinese steel is absolute garbage and chinese steel companies are known scam artists when it comes to faking and frauding the amount of carbon and other adjuncts in their steel. You have no fucking clue what you're getting and I'm pretty sure the word "consistent" doesn't exist in mandarin.

So it seems to me that one of the easiest and most effective way to deploy nuclear weapons would be not with a missile that shoots into space before coming back down halfway across the world, but to simply smuggle your nuclear weapons into enemy territory and have them waiting there ready to set off. Now that missile defense is becoming a reality, this is almost a necessity, and the vast amount of international trade all countries do with each other at this point and the small size of nuclear warheads would make it very easy. With this tactic you could even do a preemptive nuclear strike that would destroy most of your opponents nuclear weapons before they even get a chance to fire them assuming you know where most of them are. Then you just have to worry about the ones on subs or in locations you couldn't discover or couldn't smuggle a nuke into. With decent missile defense it would be possible to completely win a nuclear war taking very little casualties using these tactics.

Do you think there are hidden nukes already deployed around the major cities of the world in nuclear enabled countries that were smuggled there by hostile forces? If there are, obviously it would be difficult to guard them well, secrecy would be your only safeguard against them being stolen. But what if that fails? What if some hacker finds the location? It could lead to terrorists getting their hands on nukes.

Missile defense has been a reality for a few years. The procedure is to send off 4 Patriots with an interception success rate of about 50%. 4 of them bump the odds up to 97%. I think we have about 200 of them or some number like that, so that would cover a rogue state but not a place like School. They work as kind of like a shotgun where they blow up into the path of the target.

Places like School have a huge investment in making sure their first strike is successful. Currently the idea is to use rocket-launched gliders to carry the warhead at a low altitude and steer around missile defenses. There is also a huge initiative for nuclear powered cruise missiles for the same purpose. Supposedly we had a proof of concept nuclear propulsion rocket engine mockup in the 1970's, but the initiative was scrapped entirely, and the scrapping was unfortunate because the 1970's Mars missions really seemed like the best thing for people to work on.

Present technology lazers could provide a 100% interception rate and would be an extremely effective shield, but I think it might be a bit of a glass ball for other countries to bust. You could probably put it in geosync orbit over the US. Space treaties currently make the concept illegal, and every Chinese country would be butthurt.

As far as the thread subject, I think customs does a pretty good job making sure NK can't import anything. I guess they could place the container in a Chinese port and say, "this is Chinese import lol," but it sounds difficult. They could dock a fishing boat the same way the Columbians do, but they have a longer voyage and would need a spy network. It would be a huge pain in the ass and if they got caught then... well, they would have nothing to lose. Sanctions are a foreign policy nightmare, but that's a load of opinion bias.

Best idea is to avoid the issue. The current treaties being scrapped is looking kind of bad.

Assuming this is actually the case the US has smuggled nukes everywhere, missile defense becomes irrelevant again and MAD applies maybe even more than normally. ..

I wanna know what weapons I need to survive in these scenarios.

There's a lot of truth in this OP. If you live in a city and shit his the fan, your Glock is going to be a way out light-years before it's a fighting tool. I will also say that if you're doing this all by yourself and don't have a crew to bug out with, you're not going to last long. I'm not sure if youve ever read "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy but the scariest moments of the protagonist's post-apolyptic experience are when they run into groups of other people. If you're outmanned by just one person your chance of coming out the Victor diminished greatly.

Survival experience, camping skills, knot knowledge, botanical knowledge, simple map and compass skills, bushcraft, knowledge of simple primitive trapping, fishing with found bait, etc should all be on your list before buying a handgun. Get a machete and a knife sure, but those are way more practical than a gun.

A lot of the people advocating having tons of guns for the post-apocalypse are either Fallout/Stalker/ARMA nerds, or are going off of accounts from places like Bosnia or South Africa that were in the middle of a war that would end within a year or two, not a semi-permanent apocalypse.

Realistically, if you just want to be a mountain man, you just need a non-modern ranged weapon for hunting, and that's really about it. Your likelihood of encountering RadRaiderz is 0%.

Keep in mind that "weapons" like machetes and kukris are primarily brush-clearing tools refashioned into execution implements when the Tutsis get too marxist, not front-line combat weapons. No modern force engages with pistols, or has ever engaged with pistols in a widely meaningful capacity.

The better investment is in tools and tooling. Meme out all you want about just shooting guys for food when it's fallout time, but your glock won't support a raised bed of veggies and a machete is a poor tool for building a shelter compared to an actual survival hatchet

>omg but smokeless powder is so easy to make!!!!
yeah when you can go to your local hardware store and buy buckets of the materials you need. You may as well just buy powder at that point. Get a crossbow or an air rifle or something for wasting rabbits and ravens to eat.

>I laugh at the folks who stock up thousands of rounds of ammo and mags and shit for the end times. If you get into a firefight, you're going to be killed or kill the opposition in less than 3 mags.
Most real SD scenarios are over and done in under 10 rounds (one pistol mag). Most are a matter of warning shots and the "engagement" ending either in the assailants fleeing because they're not finna die over stealing your Yaris, or only one or two rounds more as someone puts accurate fire down to kill the one or two members of the opposition. Sending dozens or even hundreds of rounds (3 mags is already 90x .223 out of a STANAG ) downrange is shit for maneuver warfare, not scaring abbos away from your truck.

Hi. I recently inherited a family heirloom of sorts, in the form of a small pistol.

My question is regarding the ammunition - The rounds are visibly quite old / tarnished. I'm assuming this may make the ammunition unreliable and/or unsafe to use?

Not a firearm person, obviously. But later on I do plan on reading up a bit on the pistol to learn how to properly clean it, etc. I'm a grown man, I'm not fucking around with the weapon, I'm only curious.

It's a .25 round, if that matters. The handgun uses a magazine.

Thank you for your time.

It's likely 25 acp OP. It's a small pocket pistol caliber that doesn't have much power, but it would still fuck up your day if you got shot by it. It's not used much any more and is common in old pawn shop guns like I'm sure you were gifted.

Just depends on the gauge and the weight, how strong the kid is, and how competent they are with stance. Like the poster above said, start them out with a 410 or a 20 gauge. Teach them right about safety, operation, and position. We had a trap/skeet team at one of the schools I went to, kids could start at 10 from what I remember.

I wouldnt buy it here on the darknet because i dont want to lose all my money.
I would buy it in the balkans, an unregistered pistol with ammunition. My family is from there so i speak some serbian but i dont have contact to people who would sell a gun to me.
Found some people on facebook who sell their guns but only to people who own a permission. Asked them if they would accept the offer if i pay instead of 300 euro 1500 euro. Thats alot of money for balkan people but they said they cant.
So where do i get my 9mm pistol with ammunition?

Except in similar barrel lengths .357 Sig is still always going to outperform 9mm. Even the hottest +p+ 9mm won't beat out a lot of .357 Sig self-defense loads. 10mm is a joke. Just use 357 Magnum. The only people that like 10mm are memelords. .357 Sig has the advantage of beating 40 in every metric that matters, has the most reliability of any handgun round due to being bottlenecked, and well, the list is too long for me to post everything good about it.

Sin taxes on guns and ammo is therefor objectively wrong and misguided. Additionally I would like to add the following: take your classist rich boys ideology of making guns only legal for filthy wealthy individuals and blow it out your fuckin ass faggot. There is no reason why guns should cost thousands of dollars when the vast majority of them cost maybe 50 dollars in raw materials and 200-300 in machining and logistics time. Fascist.

I have some questions and I'm sorry if they're dumb. This stuff is so far out of my knowledge base it's ridiculous.

I've been on a CA 5250 hold (multiple, actually) for harm to self and as a result I'm not allowed to possess firearms. I live in a house with roommates. We're generally very supportive of each other. My roommates are considering getting a gun because our neighborhood is insane and several of us, myself included, are physically disabled.

Would something bad happen legally having a gun in the house if I'm not supposed to own one, and if so, what?

"No person who has been adjudicated by a court of any state to be a danger to others as a result of a mental disorder or mental illness shall purchase or receive, or attempt to purchase or receive, or have in his or her possession, custody, or control a firearm..."

Possessions, custody, or control sounds a lot like having any access to it is a problem.

in the unlikely event cops appear, take the gun, and ask who's it is, would one of your roommates claim it or would everyone mumble and look at their feet? as long as a kosher owner claims it you're gravy

Given that you're in Cali and given how cops are; no. And even so, it is still federally illegal if you have access to it in any way. Just like if you have a gun in a car, and a felon is in that car with you, and it isn't on your person or locked away, he is in violation of the law and possibly the driver and owner of the car depending on the arresting officer, the DA policy, the local politics, and the local laws etc.

I suppose you could argue that if you share a house or flat or whatever and they keep it locked in a safe or strictly on their person that you'd be okay but you're taking a risk. Especially in California and today's political climate.

It is a risk and you should probably speak to an attorney but in all likelihood, someone will get in trouble and it will probably be your and whoever is the owner of the firearm.

Thank you both for responding to this.

Not that anyone was dying for the gripping conclusion of this story, but I sat down with roommate and talked to her about this and the potential legal risk (I would have done it anyway) and she was very nice and understanding and we're not getting a gun. I think she thinks I would shoot myself in the face and that's honestly probably true. And even if not, if we get in trouble I'm black so I'm likely not getting off lightly and she says she'd feel awful. I feel guilty. The end
