Long time no see.
I have $2000 to spend on a rifle. Leaning strongly towards a Steyr Aug for around ~$1700.
Currently own a CZ75b and an M1A and the 308 is a bit expensive to shoot.
What would you fuckers do with $2000?
What is the best pepper spray that is legal to carry in Wisconsin? I am looking into buying some.
I was looking at
>Needs safety feature like a flip up cap
>Less than 2.1 fluid ounces
>No mace of any sort
>10% maximum OC strength
What one should I buy?
Would the police be pissed if I had to use that to defend myself or was stopped with it? Would they even check? What charge would I get if they found out its not technically legal?
So it's been a while since I bought something online, is it considered good etiquette to let the gun store know that you're having something sent to them before you do so or are they used to shit just showing up with random people's names on it?
So, /k/, help me out. I want a .308 battle rifle, preferably something I can scope with relative ease. I've narrowed it down to two that I am interested in. Can anyone with personal experience with either weigh in?
I am an AR guy and love my two AR-15's, but lack of commonality between manufacturers when you move into .308 territory makes other options also appealing. I'm mostly concerned with ruggedness and reliability. I like to shoot cheap...

Who /black powder/ here? Anyone got any advise for someone new to black powder rifles?
Never put it away dirty with the thought that you will clean it in a day or two. You won't and you will regret it two months later when you finally get around to it.
I've been looking for where I can buy a cheap barrel to make a homemade matchlock, with little success.
I live in buttfuck nowhere so I can't even just go out and buy 3 feet of stainless steel pipe.
I'm taking my CHL course next week. I've been playing around with positions to carry my handgun. Pic related seems to be the most comfy so far. What kind of pistol do you carry and in what position?
I'm going to carry a XD9 sub compact. It's the only pistol I currently own. Is anyone cc'ing full sized handguns?
Once I get my work bonus in a few weeks I'm going submit the paperwork for my CC permit. I still need a holster, and I'm not sure how/where to wear my gun. It's a G19 like the fag I am, and it's just big enough that 3 o'clock is too bulgy, and appendix makes it impossible to sit. Does a holster help even out these areas when carrying, or do I need to just manage and practice?
Y'all have a knife (or fun) that is the benchmark from which you judge other options? For me its my paramilitary 2. I like to weigh the differences between it and any other knife i might buy(pic mine but unrelated)
Hard to say, really. For something I'd pass down to my kids or grandkids, it'd be my special edition Case Marlin. If it was for over all value and an ability to be a work horse, it'd be between my Esee-3 and my Paramilitary 2. And as for EDC blades that go with me every day, it's hard to beat my Benchmade mini-grip or my Izula.
I have more love for my Case Marlin than any of them, but it was also a gift from my father and the most pleasing to look at.
With the INSAS rifle being replaced, what are the odds of seeing them modded and imported?
I've always liked the look of them.
So /k/ what did you get for Christmas?
Usually, when people talk about improving the 5.56, they talk about increasing the caliber, such as going to a 6.5mm round instead. But what about the other direction? Why not introduce a .19 inch caliber cartridge? 5.0x45mm would be pretty nifty.
Thoughts on sporterized milsurp weapons?
I always thought it's a shame when you see a beautiful weapon and piece of history get turned into a polymer covered turd with an ugly Bushnell scope on it. Seeing shit get bubba'd is never fun.
this. for the price of mutilating a historic weapon of war, you can just go buy a used Savage/Remshit/Mossman/Sako, or in same cases even a brand new one, and use it for hunting instead.
It made sense in like 1952 when a milsurp Mauser or Arisaka would cost like 15-20% of what a decent hunting rifle would cost.
But now a even cheap milsurp like a re-arsenaled nugget costs like 150bucks, and you can get a solid used hunting rifle for 200 or 250.
Or you could get a low end new production rifle for like 300 bucks.
Sporterizing milsurps now is retarded.
All it does is destroy a piece of history and lower the value permanently.
I'm really tired of dragging my feet about getting one of these, I know I don't like the set color options of the pre-customized guns but I can't decide if I should buy an inox or a black brigadier to send in. I'm looking for opinions and anyone who has Wilson guns to give opinions and share experiences, especially the Berettas. Also Beretta thread.
I'd rather buy an M9A3 now that they're available and cost about the same or a touch less than the WC.
>Convertible to FS or G configuration easily by yourself instead of having a one way permanent conversion by WC to G.
>Vertec frame, but comes with Hogue grips to make it exactly like a regular 92 frame if you like.
>Factory threaded barrel with a flush thread protector that won't cause holster compatibility...

Post non-traditional configurations for guns, or just odd looking things.
I'm trying to find a picture of a Tec-9 with an extended barrel that has been dressed up into a carbine that looks like a tiny AR-15.
is it just me or are the mosin bayonets fucking tight or what. i was thinking of either sanding the inside of the socket or just prying it open with a hammer.
They are meant to be tight, numbers matching will be better though. I believe the idea was they weren't suppose to remove them unless they really had to.
I have a bayonet without a number that refused to go on my rifle when I first got it. I sanded it a little bit at a time till it was a snug fit but would mount on the rifle.
