i disagree but i think you are close OP. i think the man to the right of beard dude is carrying. He has the more typical but not 100% sure agent outfit...id say he has a uzi or some such under that jacket.
Let's post some outlandish looking race guns ITT. I'm not particularly concerned with their overall functionality or the quality of the parts used, just post some really weird looking guns. I'll start off with a few I just got from googling "race gun".
The reason, if anybody is interested, is that I just started getting into USPSA shooting. I haven't shot my first match yet but I've taken the class and watched a few of the matches, and some of those guys look like they're packing fucking alien ray guns. Having been raised in a family...

As a side note, I'm really nervous about shooting actual matches. I could definitely be a better shot and I get performance anxiety especially with a bunch of strangers watching me. I know the rules and what will be expected of me but if anybody has any tips or anything else to put my mind at ease, it'd be much appreciated.

Why is the sks considered to be the best innawoods rifle when surplus 7.62x39mm would rust it up without proper cleaning? I would imagine it would be difficult to clean an sks without a steady supply of clean water.
I would rather use a .308 Winchester bolt action rifle. >easy cleaning >non-corrosive ammo >ammo available anywhere
>>28375666 because it was $200 for a semi auto in a cheap military caliber when it earned that reputation. it's still going to be better than a bolt gun in a shootout and tougher than a deer rifle, you can get non-corrosive 7.62x39, the vast majority of it is non-corrosive nowadays. and the bore is chromed anyhow.
What's the most efficient way to spend your time/ammo at the pistol range?
Half my shots go low left, half my shots are dead on. I'm mostly doing this with my 1911, 45 stronk. It doesn't seem to happen with revolvers or .22 semis. I know I'm flinching/squeezing the gun right as the shot goes off, but I don't really know how to stop. It's got tons of checkering and decent grips, I know it's not actually slipping, but it still feels like it's going to jump out of my hand.
So, instead of just standing there and blasting away,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Here's how I'm shooting /k/. What the hell is breaking wrist up? I'm also curious how you correct the "too little trigger", what does that mean? I do have a tendency to not follow through on my shots, that's something I know how to fix so no questions there.
hold the gun tighter, grip if as hard as you can, its called the crush grip.
also let your finger rest wherever it is comfortable on the trigger, some faggots say to use the pad of your finger, that is hogwash and only correct if you have babby hands and that is where it naturally goes.
One day you wake up from your bed with your mosin nagant wife that you had sex with last night and you go to the kitchen and pour in some vodka and nuggets for breakfast and you go to step out on your yard with your cuban cigar that you got from the black market to relax.
Suddenly there are literally dozens of these African Bullfrogs all over your yard and they are tearing up your yard and trying to pick them up bites you.
So what does /k/ do in this unfortunate situation in time and day?

First time I've been stopped while carrying. Wasn't too bad I suppose. A douchebag could have jammed us up for not immediately providing the paper registrations. Seemed like an OK guy overall.
Handguns are registered in Michigan. You hand in a paper form to your local LE, who forward it to the state police for entry into the electronic database. Because of this it can take a while for the registration to show up electronically, so you're required to keep a copy with the pistol for 30 days.
Basically we just bought the guns 3 days ago, and the registry info hasn't been uploaded yet, so when the cop ran the info we didn't come up as... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>have terrible anxiety >start ccing >no longer feel terrified when I leave my house Anyone else like me? I'm able to be a normal human being without taking the ativan I'm prescribed, all thanks to firearms. Also I guess cc general. Just picked up a cheap snubbie so I'm finally able to carry without looking like I'm about to shoot a place up pic unrelated
Remington 870 Synthetic 18" (90s made, WAY before Cerberus). First time I took it to the range it would cycle fine until I tried cycling it fast. It jammed and the extractor wouldn't ramp over the shell rim to pull it out.
Some of the time when I'm cycling it unloaded the extractor will hit the barrel and stop the bolt instead of ramping in the extractor groove away from it. The extractor appears to not be deformed so I'm thinking the spring is pushing the extractor too far inwards.
Anyone experience anything like this and have a fix? I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>28375022 how worn is the barrel does the notch look all sorts of peened cant really tell cause of the flash
i had an 870 like that and my fix was filing the notch in the barrel more so it wouldnt get stuck the gun seemed to function fine after that but i never felt like i fixed it the proper way cause the brass would get marked up eventually i just replaced the barrel which brought the gun back to working correctly
