Unpopular Opinions

I'll start: Your chances of an ND are higher than needing to use your gun in self defense. Lacking a specific threat, condition 3 carry is more reasonable than condition 1.

    Precision and clay shooting is severely underrepresented among modern shooting culture despite good target rifles and clay shotguns costing roughly as much or less than a high end AR or similar salt gun. Like shooting targets quickly at 50 to 100 yards is fun but why do so many chose to limit themselves to that and only that?

    ND’s are a normal part of gun ownership. If you haven’t had a ND you simply don’t train enough.

    Banning the discussion of politics when discussing weapons is silly. It's like banning discussing cooking on a Food board. Weapons, especially in geopolitics contexts, are political. Yes, it can get annoying and it's naturally going to turn into 4chan Lite (Especially with recent Ukrainian developments) but cracking down on discussions surrounding the context of weapons used in wars is silly.

      When you live in a country where 50-80% of politicians want to make any weapon up to and including harsh language illegal yes weapons are political

      Unless you can find a way to have political discussion while filtering tankies, pol schizos, etc I'll happily take the status quo

      >cracking down on discussions surrounding the context of weapons used in wars is silly.
      This has never happened and the reason people bitch about Ukraine threads is because they're just people spamming /int/ type memes about Russia and have very little if any discussion about the war or weapons.
      >weapons are political
      moron everything is political. And if politics was allowed this board would just be non stop

    You’re right, we should never do anything dangerous because we might get hurt. We should all restrain ourselves and let Big Brother handle all these nasty dangerous guns for us.

      discussions are for low IQs, or the more likely scenario is that *you* are too low IQ to have a discussion on it so you just cop out?

    I don't mind SIG and I will still laugh at their fuck ups.

    That new Springfield 2011 looks fine but is too picky and finicky for how much it costs. Especially so since the mags it comes with are terrible and a staccato mag makes it run like butter.

    Also RIA guns are fine

    Personal/home defense weapons are great and all, but
    >keeping yourself in good mental and physical health
    >having at least one neighbor you know and trust
    >having a smoke alarm and fire extinguisher
    >having money saved up for an emergency
    are probably more important for both you and your loved ones.

                Overall you shouldn't feel too bad about NDs. If you havent ND'd lately you havent been handling your guns enough. It's part of owning guns, and you should get used to them.

    5.7 is far less of a meme than 10mm

    • 2 weeks ago


      • 2 weeks ago

        Higher velocity, better penetration and better capacity than a 9mm with soft armor piercing capability
        Incredibly traumatizing on soft targets as well
        10mm by contrast is just a slightly hotter .40

    If you hand a gucci AR and a PSA shit stick to the average shooter they wouldn't be able to tell the difference in performance.
    Optics on handguns are a meme and people are going to look back at it like how we look back at the giant laser sights from the 80s.

    If .357 Sig isn't appreciably better than 9mm, then 10mm isn't appreciably better than .40

    While the 1911 can be carried in Condition 1, it was designed to be carried Condition 2. It was designed first and foremost as a cavalry arm, and it was expected that cavalrymen in action would be unable to perform any two-handed weapon drills, as one hand would be occupied with the reins. Therefore, the pistol was designed with both a thumb safety and a grip safety to make a hurried one-handed holstering safer, but for routine carry in an area where combat was expected, cavalrymen were trained to carry Condition 2, with the operator thumbing the hammer back during the draw. Two safeties were used because by the thinking of the time, a single safety wasn't sufficiently reliable for a cocked hammer on a cavalry weapon.
