thinking of getting a compact pistol.
>sub compact is too small but i can deal with it
>standard is too big
id like 7-15 round mag capacity in 9mm, for under 400 usd, im looking at the glock 19, ruger lc9, and the kel tec PF9.
what would /k/ recommend? also im not interested in revolvers because i think mag capacity is king, unless /k/ can help me find a small .357 mag for under 400.
basically i need a pistol smaller than a standard size with a relatively high mag capacity in 9mm,...

With those options in mind the glock 19 is leaps and bounds above the rest. Slightly more difficult due to double stack frame but by the the most simple, reliable, easy to repair and also holds the largest aftermarket. With the right holds aND shirt choices the double stack frame can easily dissappear also
>glock 19, ruger lc9
If you can comfortably conceal the Glock 19 as easily as the Ruger LC9, then the choice is rather obvious. Also, I've heard the LC9 can be somewhat snappy due to how light it is, and Kek Tek guns are worse, so if you do want a slimmer subcompact 9mm you might want to look elsewhere (M&P Shield is available at that price point)
PAK-FA = FAIL!
Russian ran out of Germans to do the work for them.
what is your guys opinion on the F-35 and weather it will stand up to the russian counterpart the TU50
Tell me why I should or should not open carry /k/.
Sup /k/, I'm looking for a kevlar vest and a decent plate carrier with plates, what get? I know fuckall about armor
do you want a separated kevlar vests AND a plate-carrier? Or would an armor carrier, as in a vest that incorporates soft-armor + pockets for plates do as well?
For the latter, you could grab a fairly cheap Interceptor Body-armor or IOTV from Ebay or such. Got couple of IBAs myself for mere 100 bucks a piece, and slapped in couple LV4 German plates I got for 80€ / a pair.
This guy comes up to you and offers you one of these relics from the past FOR FREE.
Which do you choose?
Gavrilo Princip's FN model 1910
Lee Harvey Oswald's Carcano carbine
Simo Häyhä's M/28-30 rifle
John Wilkes Booth's Philadelphia Deringerpistol
Adolf Hitler's Walther PPK 7.65
Marcus Brutus Dagger
I'm trying to get my class 3 guard card in Texas and I have to qualify with a handgun and a 12gauge. What is a good shotgun to go out and buy for security guard purposes? I was thinking the Nova but shotguns as a whole are a relitive unknown for me.
Here is excellent video on it
It's literally limited only by what you want to spend and what features you want. A Maverick 88 will do everything a Benelli or Browning can hope to do, just without the style. For combat, you might want some adjustable sights for when you have to throw slugs. Smooth bore 18 inch barrel with changable choke tubes. I like ones that take remington style chokes as they are very available. Pump guns cycle pretty much everything if you aren't short jacking including less-lethal.
So... My gf has never shot a semi automatic firearm.
Ever. She came from a pure bolt action/lever action and revolver house hold.
She knows how to shoot, has shown interest in getting a semi auto weapon, but no clue where to start.
So /k/, I ask this, Would starting here on a AR platform be a good start? Just so the basics can be taught? What would you recommend?
Yeah. ARs have like no recoil too.
But I dunno I'm an army fag
>can take apart an AR and put it back together blind folded in a short amount of time
>fucking can't put an AK back together to save my life
>have an old ass CZ82 I use as my carry cause I can't shoot my 9mm as well as it
>noticed a few days ago you can pull the trigger through the safety
>but when it's cocked you can't
>was actually looking at me more and noticed the safety doesn't really CLICK up all the way unless it's cocked
>can't pull the hammer back and cock it with my finger too
My dad said I should stop...

How do we fix the American shipbuilding industry?
I'm in dire need of a gun safe, I've got $500 to spend, any recommendations? I have two scoped rim fire rifles, two AR's, one with an aimpoint pro, a shotgun, and about 10 pistols. Of course I need room to grow.
Pic unrelated, just what I picked up black Friday
Does anyone feel like gunpowder literally ruined combat? I mean, any retard can shoot a gun. Apart from "Chris Kyle", there are no famous "warriors" anymore. And he's just some sniper who shoots civilians.
Imagine if we still used swords. I'd be able to master my craft and be one of the best. Combat would be up close and personal, not fought with a playstation like in 2015 (muh drones).
What does /k/ think about this?
No, it only ruined your romanticized notion of combat.
As a less than stellar physical specimen, I'd rather have a gun than a sharpened hunk of metal that I would require me to get up close and personal with someone in order to kill them.
I've been trying to decide whether my next purchase will be an AR or a Mini. I really want to add a 5.56 rifle to my small collection. Every time I Google around for opinions, someone says "fuck 'em both, get a C93."
Should I listen to that one guy? I kind of dig the looks of it, but it doesn't look like it would support many accessories.
If you're looking for a rifle you can heavily customize, the HK93/C93 is not the rifle for you. If you want to make your rifle 'yours' get an AR and fiddle with it however you please. The 93 is a rifle for people who want something that's fun and out of the ordinary, while still being an effective 5.56 caliber rifle.
Personally, I like them a lot. To me, the ergos of the HK/CETME family are much more comfortable than the ergos of the AR family. If you're already familiar with those ergos but want something lighter than a 91, the 93 is the way to go.
Why can't Russia make good airplanes anymore?
I just picked up a pair of picture related with the one large audio plug. what radios and ptt's are going to work with it? baofeng? my ten year old talkabouts?
You can use it with just about anything as long as you can either buy or make the needed adapters.
You probably can't find adapters labeled as baofeng, however they use the same interface as kenwood radios, so look for those instead.
That is a U-174 connector, same as helicopter flight helmets/headsets. Google away.
