there is already a self defense story thread, however does anyone have any toasty stories where they were put in situations where you really should of owned/had a firearm but didnt have one on you? here are a few of my stories from ages 17-22 (im 23 now, and CC)

Piggybacking on this guy with $100 to BassPro... I'm thinking Tula x39, 9mm and .223. In CA so no big mags for me. I'm building an AR but I couldn't find if they had any lower parts kits on their website. Anything better?
You keep spare parts on hand and replace parts only if they actually break. >O ring I dont know why these are even a thing. Every gunsmith I've ever talked to says to remove them, the rifle actually functions better without them. >mfw my PSA NiB bcg had two of them on the extractor spring
I purchased a bow recently and plan to spend the next few months practicing with it so I'm ready to hunt when the cooler weather hits.
I've only got a 45lb bow, but I'm thinking that will be sufficient for boars. What weight arrow should I be looking at?
Also, I'm planning on stalking. Shooting from a blind doesn't interest me. Any recommendations on books that will help me understanding tracks and signs? I'm Australian, but books for tracking in other countries should be fine right?
Lastly, what's the best way to understand... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>28317814 (Disclaimer: I shoot compound and also don't hunt pigs)
I'd be leery of hunting pigs with a 45# trad bow (which I'm assuming your's is). Shot placement on pigs is different to deer and on bigger pigs with a "shield" is much less forgiving - you'll either need a bow and arrow set up to deliver enough momentum to punch through or take quartering away shots.
If your bow is a trad bow, you'll need to get very close to make those shots (especially as a new archer),... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm aware of the boar shield and have done a little research on the internals of a pig.
And yeah. I've been charged by a boar before. Though I'd be brave and stand my ground. He was about 6 inches from the tip of my gun when I squeezed one off - click. In the excitement the bolt had lifted slightly. But the barrel to his face, and then to his ribs when he had been shot scared him off. Definitely... Comment too long.

>>28318378 45# is kind of an odd weight for a hunting compound, which is why I assumed trad. What bow have you got? (Also, what's its max peak weight/range of adjustment/IBO speed/your draw length?)
The same principles apply building an arrow for penetration with a compound, but depending on your bow you'll need a stiffer spined arrow than a trad bow so you'll either need more spine or less point weight, which can make getting a higher FOC a bit trickier. Unless your 45# compound is goddamn fast though,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
/k/ I need your input on something. On shitty mobile so bear with me
>be me >be inna dive bar with qt 3.14 gf ccing my p226 >slaughtering her in pool >cue ball gets stuck after I scratched >make the mistake of picking up pool to get cueverything ball unstuck >owner yells at me to put it down and do so >talk to owner and apologize >everything is cool until drunk regular approaches me and says "don't pick up the fucking pool table" >tell him I'm not gonna then he repeats himself >tell hime I'm not again and tell him to fuck off >dude is ready to fight but I've had 2 beers and ccing. >based az allows me to cc as long as I don't drink >not drunk or buzzed but 2 bears deep >guy waits for me and gf to leave and makes comment about fucking my gf >gf calls him a fucking dick and I just flip him off as we walk away >keep an eye on him incase he attacks
Now, did I do the right thing by not fighting him and possibly going to jail or did I bitch out? I feel like I didn't defend my gf's honor but at the same time I was ccing after 2 beers and am trying to get into law enforcement.
Hey /k/, I spend large amounts of time out innawoods (pic related), by myself, and usually travel far distances from civilization. After reading recent reports of mountain lion sightings, it dawned on me that I really need to protect myself. I don't not think I'm being overly paranoid, but when you're out alone you're exposing yourself to all kinds of risks, and I think it best to be adequately protected. I would by no means say that I'm a very large person, "Russian tanker" size would describe me best, so I certainly don't think I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>28317650 Your size doesn't matter. A grizzly will kill a 6'5 bodybuilder just as dead as a 4 foot tall girlscout. The only difference is that the bodybuilder will be a larger, more hearty meal. Unless you can kill the bear by sticking your arm down its throat, which was a one time thing to be fair.

>>28317716 Also, for mountain lions, bears, whatever, the best option is being able to identify fresh bear tracks, using common sense, and keeping your distance. No running from bears, they can outrun you. Don't climb a tree unless you can basically do a 30ft vertical leap. Stand your ground, because most bear charges are bluffs. For mountain lions, don't run, raise your voice loud and low, and get ready to shoot it. Be aware of fresh tracks, and don't have food or any sort of smell that might attract either species.
>>28317650 Don't worry about mountain lions. They know where you are long before you will know they are around. They almost always avoid people, and if it wants you dead it will ambush you. You won't have a chance to pull a gun.
