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?

I remember seeing this gif, and someone saying it was a trick the US does where they put a couple of rounds in found ammo cashes that will blow a gun like that. Apparently it was a big thing in Vietnam?

lol it would be the rem 700 that explodes the most violently.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks in advanced, regards /st/.

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.

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:
>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.


Firstly, Hickok45 is a self-righteous cunt in real life so he can go fuck himself but you are insanely deluded if you seriously think that he isn't a paid endorser. There are exactly 2 guns he has shat on up to 2014 and before. I stopped watching him after a personal run in and when I stopped being an idiot about guns. He has said negative shit about the Ruger 10/22 and the Taurus Model 94. Aside from him being a cunt, he is literally just a gun commercial. Every video is:

>Well we got this gun here today, (sent for free) from our good friends at ____Advertisement____.
>Guess I'll shoot somethan heh heh.
>Sure shoots good aheh.
>Let me yak a bit and load these magazines.
>Heh, let's hit the gong!
>Boy that is a sweet shootin pea shooter, son.

90% of those big Youtube guys are paid off/given free shit to talk about guns positively. You may enjoy Hickok's stage personality or whoever but you have to be honest and realize that these cats are all gun commercials. By the way, most Youtube gun people are stuck up cunts in real life. The Gwebs guy and TheYankeeMarshal are the only two big ones I've encountered that weren't complete cunts in real life.

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 already know the season time and i will have to get a license, but will I need a guide? if so how much would it cost, i already know I am going to need to take it somewhere to be processed i live in NC so it shouldn't be too hard to find.

What type of gear will I need, what type of rifle/shotgun would be the best to use?

Sks is plenty accurate, just need to know where to hold it. Still in combat today too, albeit in shit tier countries.

I live in PA and a shotgun is better for hunting up here. Trees keep most shots with in 50 yards, and slugs are accurate too 100 yrds in my experience. I have never been to NC but if it's in Appalachian country I would think it would be similar.

This of course is different if you are a farmer or hunting farmland, but I don't know any and use the state forest and game lands wich are thick as fuck.

Shotguns also allow you to hunt pretty much anything, if OP wants to try his hand at small game or med or varmints.

I've hunted most of my life in TN and around NC for deer. As for guides, it is generally better to find some private land owners and ask politely, if that doesnt work look around for some local hunting groups (be wary of old fudds) and most of the time you can chip in for land leases. Make sure to check NC laws for deer hunting calibers. As for myself i use a .270 Savage. (pic related) Best of luck to ya.

I'm about to go back to Paris. It is not a friendly city, particularly when you get lodged near La Defance.

Does anyone know what the weapons laws there are like and how they are enforced? Same question about permissible battery rules; Can I use force against someone currently picking my pocket? How about someone running down the street with my wallet?

Last time i stuck to a 1.5L bottle with capsacin (spelling?) naturally extracted into the water. Primarily used as a club. Secondary use - poor mans pepper spray. If asked why I was carrying it, I heard it was a great hangover remedy.

I'd prefer something better this time. Weighted walking sticks? A sap? Something semi-obvious would be nice... I'd rather be avoided than surprise an attacker.

I fear getting in a fight there and losing. Doesn't matter how many guys; One or twenty. I'd still have to admit to anyone who saw my scrapes and asked that I'd been beaten up by the French. I don't think I could survive that shame.

Nowadays I would be more cautious around the migrants the government is so eager to take in than the native french, especially at night in a large city like Paris. I assume firearms are out of the question because Europe, so I would carry something with a long reach, but also inconspicuous. Your suggestion of a walking stick is pretty good imo, possibly with a hidden blade unless that's too mall ninja for you. Also I would carry a small fixed blade as well if the law allows it.
Thomas Hiblinglune - Mon, 03 Oct 2016 15:46:42 EST mcYaEdD8 No.42824 Reply

If I were you, I'd have to carry something. Best bet is to try to contact local law enforcement and ask them what defensive measures citizens are permitted to carry in a given jurisdiction (Such as within the limits of the city you're staying in).

Aside from that, make it a point to be extremely aware of your surroundings and of other people. The way things have been going in Europe, you get groups of young migrant men without employment and nothing better to do than walk around at night. If you get into a tussle with one of them, every arabic speaking male within earshot is going to come and see why one of their brothers is shouting.

And then you're going to be fighting who knows how many, and you will lose. And never let yourself appear to be distracted or unaware, that invites trouble.

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

Please offer insight why, as well.

>1945 SKS (Schooln)

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 Schooln 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?

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.
