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.

All of these posts off good advice in my opinion. Check out a used cz, glock, xd, or m&p.
I have heard good things about canik and the like (glock copies essentially, around 350 each).

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.

Piss off faggot.

Since you apparently missed elementary school, here's a quick tip:

When the meaning of a term can be construed as ambiguous, apply the plain meaning. Every other user in this thread was capable of doing that. So maybe the problem is you.

Any bow hunters/shooters here?

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.

Must look fucking bad ass, or come with a can of matte black spray.

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

Hunting bear with a 35# bow can't be ethical.

Now, I've been recently getting into firearms in general. Just took the CW course in my state and I'm dead set on getting a Glock 17 from that experience after trying a few other 9mm pistols. However, for the most part, I'm not sure whether or not I'd prefer a Gen 3 or Gen 4.

While I could look at the differences between the two online, which I intend to do as I get closer to making a decision for purchase, I was wondering if anyone here on /nra/ could assist me in making a decision between Gen 3 or Gen 4.

Beyond the listed differences/updates were there any subtle differences that you noticed that might not be mentioned in a cursory google search between the two (trigger sensitivity, potential cleaning issues, magazine spring, grip feel, etc.)?

Since my budget isn't amazing high right now, is the difference in price worth the purchase at this point or should I consider looking into a used/refurbished one of the two and if so, which one?

Any recommended initial attachment purchases (different sight, extended mag, flashlight, etc.)?

Any info would be very much appreciated.

You really didn't notice a difference in recoil springs? I had two 35s one gen 4 and one gen 3 the gen 4 felt more like a 9mm

Nope! If there is a difference it's miniscule. I had two 23s and the muzzleflip/recoil felt the same between the gen 4 and gen 2. Maybe there's a more noticable difference in the longslide models you used. From my experience the .40S&W in a compact frame will be snappy regardless of springs used. I ditched my gen 4 and kept the gen 2. It's got an overall better feel to it in my opinion so i'm more accustomed to it thus improving accuracy and comfort.

Hey dudes. I'm not new to guns or shooting or anything. I was in the army for awhile. However I've never bought a gun of my own because I was always living with people who had guns.

Anyway, I'm wanting to buy a gun to keep in my car for self defense purposes. This is legal in Texas. I prefer revolvers, and would like to keep the cost as low as possible. What do you guys recommend?

why not sell the p3at w extended clipazines, buy a single stack 9mm (LC9, Glock, p938, kahr) and if you have to sell the .22 otherwise keep it, .22 is quite utilitarian weapon. give wifey the 9mm and take the .40


>>42335
in addition to the semi auto and police trade in advice, I'd say check out Ruger P-series, P85, P89, 90, 94 maybe some others in there. $200-300 and its a full size duty gun.

but remember, this is 420chan and gun in the car plus drugs is asking for ass sex in the local penitentiary.

Fuck the lcp, they break after a 1000 rounds, 380 is piss ant anyway.

Get a xd 9 sub compact, mod 2. 16 shots nice and tiny and ERGONOMIC AS FUCK. Just got one, love it, love it love it.

A j frame (642, 638, etc) revolver is wonders more reliable and more powerful and actually conceal able than a jammomatic piece of shit.

They make some bad ass and affordable shit that you can get at Home Depot. Bought two of these bad boys and had custom sheaths with belt clips because the stock holster is crap, but damn they're solid!

I'm thinking of picking up one of the Rock Picks next.

i've got one of those old estwing hatchets somewhere, thing's never been sharp but it's durable AS FUCK. leather rotted, some heat-shrink rubber around the handle fixed it, it's ancient. also an estwing roofing hammer. it was well used when i found it by the side of the road and it's proven to be a noticeably excellent hammer, as well as effectively indestructible in the time that i've used/abused it.

the important bit: if you've got an estwing tool it'll probably outlive you and your children, but their bladed tools don't seem to hold an edge well.

>>42558
>Take care of your shit [sic]. There's people using g their grandfather's axe heads because lo and behold the axe was of good quality.
truth. keep the edge away from anything harder than the blade material, and if it can rust then keep it clean and greasy between jobs.




i got gifted a gransfors bruks forest axe a while ago. i'll take this moment to promote the FUCK out of the thing. far as i can tell it can render an entire forest into mulch without suffering any serious harm. plus you can shave with it if you touch up the edge a bit.

f i had to rate coldsteel, i'd say it's probably the highest quality mallninja trash you can acquire without having to take a trip to the fleamarket. their "top shelf" offerings just don't compare to similarly priced steel from more respectable sources. i won't deny that they've put out some nifty and fair quality stuff over the years... but that doesn't change the fact that they're infamous for churning out loads of tacticool trash.

anyways, estwing axes. not my favorite for sure, but i have a thing for axes/hatchets so i tend to buy just about everyone I can just for the hell of it lol; even if only just to see how much abuse it can take/how effective it is in relation to its cost/etc. i enjoy the estwing 26", its light and pretty durable for how cheap it is, and its just fun due to how easy it is to maneuver. the thing about it being so light though is that you gotta put a real solid swing into it, so it can be more tiring than just using a heavier axe or a maul with the assistance of gravity and the extra inertia or w/e. i got the smaller one too, i think its 15 or 16", and I got 2 of the estwing hatchets with the leather rings on the handle. i don't really like the ergonomics of those but the 16" estwing is a nice camping implement.

like i had mentioned, i buy a mess of different axes/hatchets to toy with, and though i haven't bought an estwing in years, the leather sheath on mine all say "made in haiti"...i wonder if they still do since haiti still hasnt seemed to have repaired jackshit in the several years since the quake... the axe itself is made in usa though (at least they used to be)
