>Opinions on Glock 26 for Concealed carry?
Pretty decent choice, little chunky, personally would just go G19 for easier shooting\ more capacity or get something slimmer for easier concealment. I think Cali has banned most of the more recent single stack 9s though?
He could get a S&W shield at least. Most of the other single stack 9s are banned unless you want to get a kahr
Glock 26 is fine. I got one of those when I had the misfortune of living in California.
Concealable single stack options for me are the M&P shield ( I really don't like the trigger), LCP380 CA edition, which is 500 bucks, and I'm gonna pay 500 bucks, I may as well get a Glock.
I love my 19, but as far as capacity, I'm limited to 10 rounds. That's why I'm thinking about the 26 because by default its' mags hold 10.
What do you guys think I can improve about it. Also stance general
I'm in a conundrum /k/
I can't decide between a ruger American in .30-06 or a colt le6920
With the ruger I can shoot accurately to 300 yards with a powerful cartridge and I have a thing for bolt guns.
The colt would be specifically because the political climate after hillary gets elected. And to say that I finally own an AR.
Thinking about getting a Styer M9-A1 for open carry self defense. Can get it for $477 before shipping.
Any thoughts or experience with this firearm? It's designed by an ex Glock designer except it isn't shitty like big Glocks.
Can also get a .40sw version for the same price, but the capacity is 12+1 instead of 15+1 and the general personal distaste I have for .40sw
Any thoughts on the .40sw v the 9mm?
9mm seems to be cheaper for general use rounds plus the increased capacity is an obvious plus for self defense I think.
The grip angle doesn't bother me as much. I'm a quick adjuster with most guns I handle.
>want to get into reloading but don't know if i should get a single stage, turret or progressive press.
>i know the progressive is more expensive because of how much faster and convieniant the process will be but i guess i dont know if i can justify getting one over a single stage.
>also dont know if one were considering the turret press if you might as well just go with the progressive.
Feedback would be much appreciated as im a newb to reloading.
>high bore axis designed to accomodate a hammer strike on a striker-fired pistol
Sig 320 is JUNK. The FBI wrote their requirements to try and exclude Glock and guarantee a 320 win, only for Glock to whip together a variant that met the requirements, allowing it BTFO the 320 in trials. Same will happen with the MHS (which the Army Chief of Staff has already called a waste of time and they should just buy more Glocks).
I've owned one, traded it in on another gun because the beaver tail poked me in the fat roll and at the end of the day it's just another striker fired polymer gun.
I've also owned Glocks, no longer have any of them either.
Here's what I can tell you:
With regards to actually shooting the gun, 320 is better than a Glock in every single way.
With regards to carrying the gun, the Glock is slightly more comfortable due to no beaver tail and flat sides.
How this is relevant to the OP:
OP is a faggot that thinks the single issue of bore axis outweighs all the other things when it clearly doesn't.
Critique my Marine OCS 100 word statement /k/
The values and traits associated with being a Marine have been instilled in me since I was young. My father was a Marine, and he swears it was the best decision he ever made. I have been a natural leader my entire life, and I feel there is no better place to develop and exercise my leadership skills than the Marine Corps. I have always felt a strong draw to the Corps because of the emphasis on integrity and moral fiber. Because of this I feel comfortable saying I do not have a military interest, I have a Marine interest.
I'm going to be driving a long distance tomorrow to meet with a guy to buy his Lee Enfield Mk. III for $300. He says it's in good condition as is the bore. I don't know shit about Lee Enfields, what do I check when I meet him tomorrow? He is also selling military surplus 303 rounds (450 for $150) are they corrosive? Please help so I don't get ripped off and I will post pics if I get it. Thanks!
What ammo is it? British? At that price you arent getting much of a deal. CTD had 480 rounds of Greek HXP for 90 bucks for a while but then again that was about a year ago. Also a good way to tell if an Enfield has good rifling still is when you stick a round in the muzzle. If you cant really see the bullet its doesnt have very good rifling. Got any pics of it?
>paid 3000 dollars for a stock rifle just to have it fail in the snow
>believing everything you read
C'mon man. Half the time people are talking shit about a gun, they've never owned it or have a competitor and feel the desire to justify their purchase.
How does one go about joining "moderate rebel" groups?
I wanna go operate innadesert, but joining a military is too much work.
I want to get rid of this thing. I literally can't give this thing away, and I've tried. Thinking about burying it or tossing it in the river... What do?
There are a fuckton of different ar-15 variants on the market. im looking for one that is around 600 or less. i currently have a remington 700 and ill get laughed at if i try to defend my home with that thing and its massive scope.
Do you use the sights that come on light guns when playing rail shooters /k/?
I recently bought a brand new Walther PPS M2 (9mm), and after firing the first 100 rounds through, it worked like I expected it to. Solid, good shooter.
But upon tearing it down for it's first cleaning, I noticed quite a few brass shavings all in the slide. Very small, and didn't impede the operation of the gun, but still, it has me a bit concerned.
I've never experienced this with my M&P 9C, USP, or the Walther PK380. Is this normal during a "break in" period, or should I have it looked at?
Fire 200 more rounds through it. Weird that they're brass shavings, like from the cases?
IDK, the gun isn't broke in yet though so >>31631031
I'd put it at 300 rounds for a normal break in though.

Okay. Which one of you faggots was this?
Anybody in here a JAG, or know anything about it?
I'm applying to law schools here soon, and I've considered applying for the JAG program to pay off school if I can't get any decent scholarships. Also I think it'd be fulfilling to be in the military.
What's it like? You start as an officer, right? Do you still have to go through Basic and everything? Are you seen as the pussies of the military because you're a lawyer?
Yes you start as an officer after you complete DCOIC (driect Commission Officer Indoctrination Course) or what ever your chosen branches version is.
You must meet all physical requirements before you go to DCOIC
So I was curious /k/, how many of you here actually use your guns for PRACTICAL purposes. Really there are only two practical purposes, Hunting and home defense so any other reason is bunk. But hey I shoot my rifles for fun too so who cares.
Hey /k/, It's late enough in the evening. Can we get an ATF Thread???
So I loaded my five-year-old into my old Marine pack and go walking every evening for a very uneven terrained 2.3 miles. What are you doing to get back in shape?
She will one day it's nice having all my back is an extra weight and the bonding and talking is what I'm in for the most things are starting to get a little dark around here
So I installed a UTG AK side mount but whenever I zero the rifle with my optic and take the rail off it loses its zero.
I think its the side plate I installed by UTG (pic related) because it doesn't have an over travel stop.
Any way I can fix this or am I being retarded somehow, thanks.
pic of other style of side plate that limits over travel (I think)
Are the $6.99 PSA mags any good?
Generally you pay for what you get. Cheap mags like this are what I consider "disposable" mags. Good for a few uses and I wouldn't mind tossing them or losing them after I've used a couple times.
What are some way to get into gun forging on a cheap budget? Any "corners" that can be cut? any jerry-rigging for tools?
Just ordered one of these, what are your thoughts and experiences with the Thompson 1927A1?
I got the T1 model that comes with the stick mag, I wanted to avoid those drum magazine feeding issues.
They'll really make you appreciate the advances in firearm design.
They're neat, but extremely heavy, not ergonomic, and good on you for skipping drums. Drums are a pain in the ass.

old thread >>31622319
I have the same red dot. The battery dies if you don't actually take it out FYI if you do get it.
can I get some insight/ wisdom on what to get for my AR?
Like in a FAMAS / AUG / L85A1
Get? Seems like a pretty great price for a wood stock, non mossy-oaked, new ruger. Is 22lr still gouged to fuck or is it coming back?
also get or dont get general
> carrying condition 4
>falling for the IDF jew
Their OD uniforms and chef hats are pretty cool though.
Ok, guys. Some of you might remember me, some not, it doesnt really matter. Thing is - my life is taking unwanted turns and I want to start over. My country rejects me, its really difficult to get into the US army for a Russian, so Im thinking of a Foreign Legion.
Come on, /k/, we've had fun times back then and now I really need your support
Don't do it. My older brother left, actually got into the Legion, got through basic training, and then deserted while on leave to London 4 months after getting his kepi blanc. He rarely talks about it but by all accounts it was a pretty horrible time.
I don't really care about it being a horrible time. My entire life is one big nightmare, and I would rather die trying than take my own life like a bitch.
All I am really asking is - will I get to go the actual conflict zone or not.
Come on, pals. For the sake of old times
Where does /k/ clean their guns? At your kitchen table, on the floor, do you have a bench set aside for the purpose?
