Hey guys. So I'm looking to get a real first rifle.
Now I say real because I already own a .22
I was thinking of getting a .45-70 lever action. I'll be honest it looks fun as fuck and its a cowboy gun.
Thoughts? Good/Bad idea? Where can I find a nicer one?
>Caliber capable of stopping pretty much anything in North America
Caliber is expensive as fuck, have fun reloading.
Not much aftermarket support
Recoils like a bitch.
For your first "real" rifle, honestly I'd recommend an AR. You can build one for dirt cheap, it has recoil and sounds like a "real" gun, and you can spend weeks modifying it exactly to your pleasure.
Go for it OP but inspect before you buy. Idk what marlin's quality is like these days but at one point they had gotten shitty.
From what I've heard it's better now.
Then the other immediate option that comes to mind is Henry. Henry has good quality but some people don't like the method of reloading the rifle.
I've seen guys experienced with both take pretty much equal amounts of time reloading using both marlins and henrys.
AND if you do choose to use it to hunt a dangerous...

.45-70 is a fine rifle, but a nicer one will probably cost you, and ammo isn't the easiest to find or the cheapest. But it's a fine rifle and if that's what you want, you'll enjoy it. If you want a fun cowboy gun though, why not look at a .357, you can get plenty of .357 levers of the same style and it's not so costly to shoot it
Read it and weep, boys. Picked this baby up today. 12 round clip since my state won't allow larger.
What you loadin that thing with,
I'm looking to buy a top notch gun safe for a decent price. Does anyone know where to look where I won't hurt my bank account. It doesn't have to be pic related but I want decent space in it
There were many for sale on Black Friday
There is not Mach difference between all of them.
It only depends on 3 factors.
How much is your gun collection worth?
How many home burglaries happen in your neighborhood?
What is the maximum weight you can have in your house or apartment?
Ft. Knox custom safe is top of the line but only for $10k+ of guns and on a concrete slab you can bolt it on.
For apartments you can't put bolt holes into buy cheap shit and pray.
What about size and price? Why is there so much difference in brands
I plan to own a major gun collection and this is less for protecting my guns rather more protecting my nieces and nephews from my guns
can anything stop JSOW, MALD and HARM
Its 1am, you get up to take a piss/shit. Your eyes are still blurry from waking mid sleep and walking past the stairs you see pic related
You hear others downstairs to as your senses quickly sharpen
What do you do?
What do you use to defend yourself?
How fucked are you?
My bathroom is in my bedroom... I'm a full grown man in a house that I own.
My staircase creeks noticeably, so if notice. My wife and I would be armed and ready by the time implied asshole made his way upstairs.
Long story short, that motherfucker would have 18 new black talon implants.
Anyone got one of these? What are your thoughts
Fun gun. The recoil isn't even close to as bad as people will tell you it is. Let it jump and twist all it wants to- it won't hurt you. While the muzzle is pointed up, hook your thumb over the hammer spur and gravity will do all the work for you.
You can load up .44 mag to the point where it can throw a 325 grain bullet around 1400 fps. It'll shoot through a 300 lb pig from any angle too.
I don't have a Super. I do have a couple of standard Blackhawks, one in .357 Magnum and one in .45 Colt. Aside from the slightly different grip frame, they're the same. Rugged and reliable and pretty, too. The Super Blackhawk is one of a few designs that will take .44 Magnum +P+ without a problem.
My WWII folder is gone.
Can we dump pics?
WW2 pic thread? I live for these moments, dump inbound.
>literally just a $200 tax stamp
Are 8 gauge or 10 gauge shotguns worth getting, is it fine to just stick with 12. I guess in a tactical setting would there be any difference. Also, if there is any reason for these, where does one find an 8 gauge gun to buy?
Stop what you're doing right now-
Why don't you own a Sig P232?
Post the idiotic ideas you have for weapons that you would make if you had either the skill, time or money.
For me I would make a double barreled Sola pistol like those retarded AF2011-a1 pistols. I would call it the Sola
angel because it would kind of look like it had wings when it was firing.
Pic related but with 2 barrels.
I want to make a HMG with a centrifugal stabilizer
my idea was to have a golf ball in a gas system, so that hot gasses cause it to spin in the system when the gun is fired
I think it would change the recoil characteristics enormously, the gun would "pull" a lot more, and jerk a lot less
I see it as also usefull for weapons with specialized gas systems, like low gravity or underwater
The most compact shoulder-able rifle possible. I mean the smallest thing you can physically shoulder and hold with both hands. The ergonomics would have to be like this pic. Right hand on the angled grip, left hand on the horizontal grip. The grip has to be angled like that so that you're not forcing your wrist to turn. It'd be like holding a megaphone.
You might need a suppressor or face shield if it's in anything bigger than pistol caliber.
What's the best pistol I can get for going shooting at the range for ~$1000? I already have carry and self defense guns, so those aspects are irrelevant. I also already have a 1911. I've been looking at getting pic related, but I want to know if there's better options.
bought this off a friend for $600, then upgraded the shit out of it, still under 1k into it thought since I did all the gun-smithing myself. fantastic shooter, I highly recommend it if you want something a little different then what everyone else is bringing to the range.
Is there anything better than the Leatherman Wave in the under 100 bucks range for EDC?
No, I love my wave. Been using it EDC for years. got it in high school(went to tech school because I can't math) I took electrical and abused it every day, stripping wire constantly, emergency hammer when need be. Then off into the work force. Never disappoints Nd I always recommend the wave.
Infograph thread /k/! Dump 'em if you got 'em!
"We want the airsoft audience"
And? Sure it's arguably a stupid plinker, but it gets more people into guns. "look, it's an mp5! Like cowwadudy" or "Stg44!? I love ww2 vidya!" Tends to get more people into buying them. I mean what codfag doesn't want an mp5?
More like: everyone wants an MP5 but most people are poorfags, so they made it in .22, and everyone agrees that long barrels look horrid, so they made it into a mock suppressor. Pretty simple, its embarrassing that you struggle with this stuff.
