Unpopular gun-related opinions

Post your unpopular opinions and argue with eachother because you're all homosexuals.

>Quality night vision is a waste of money

Unless you are an avid night hunter, explore the woods at night constantly or you genuinely expect a raid on your house. Other than that you'd be better off spending $1000 - $2000 on some cheap NV shit to scratch the itch and save your money.

>Open carry sucks

Not that hot of a take but open carry in public is stupid as frick unless you're at some protest/ event that directly correlates with your rights and other 2A stuff, you're hunting of course or you're wondering in the woods. "Wah wah wah it's my right!" "Use em or lose em cuck!" "You're part of the problem!" I don't give a frick what yall do but I don't show the whole table my hand at poker and I don't need to scare away le bad guys with my ebin gun, it's for SELF-defense not flaunting.

>Min-maxing everything

I fricking hate you homosexuals trying to min-max literally anything possible. Like replacing parts unnecessarily, your BCG in an AR (or similr rifle) lasts like what 40k-50k rounds before it should be retired? Why the frick are you guys replacing the shit after 10k and 15k? "No ones doing that moron" yes they fricking are, I've seen it more than I thought I would especially the past few years. The fuddlore shit is getting out of control "don't cowboy the revolver it's bad for it!", "Don't SLAM the slide without a magazine inserted it's bad for it!" and everyones favorite "Don't single load the gun it messes up the extractor!" Like shut the frick up, please shut the frick up. The wear those things do to the gun are minimal and yes they accumulate over time and do cause more damage than if you didnt do it but at the point it actually matter your fricking gun has so much use it's deserving of being retired. Replacement parts for most damaged items are cheap anyways.

      Is this true or do you (and I, to the degree that I agree with you) just lack imagination?

      Examples of hypothetical cartridges whose existence is I think justified:

      >5.56 Knox with 120+gr expanding subs. Think 8.6 blackout maker rex subs, but skinnier. 100rd quad stack mag. Ultra quiet suppressed cause small bore and low energy.

      >5.56 FABRL hybrid case with heavy VLDs

      >Some dedicated SBR cartridge for excellent efficiency from short barrels, but also with m855 or better external ballistics. ~7mm, but super long, fine, and lightweight bullet going 3k+ fps. Bam no more 300 BLK vs 5.56 arguments and no more barrel length conundrum and compromise. You can eat your cake and have it too.

      >~1.75” action length intermediate cartridge for mp7-style assault rifles.

      Mostly I think it’s new enabling tech that gives the above (IMO) any merit. I think I just wanna VLD-ify and hybrid case everything.

        Not him, but genuine question: what would the point of such a round be? Would it offer anything that an an existing round doesn't? As I understand it 8.6 is already super quiet, and when those things expand, goddamn they're like broadheads

          A smaller bore and smaller powder charge would always be quieter with an equivalent size suppressor.

          You can fit many times more of these broadheads into a magazine that will still prob be lighter than an 8.6 mag. I’m talking 100rd quad stack about the same footprint as a PMAG

          Also, 8.6 is still designed with supersonic performance as a consideration - it is 2 cartridges at once - and so it has more case capacity than is needed for subs. A straight wall .224 has just what it needs and nothing more. Tiny case head, super high capacity, small and light gun, and controllable full auto for when the Hughes amendment is repealed kek. Low energy, but distributed in a superior way in the target that punches well above its weight.

          Also, I think it’s really cool.

            Could be, if someone told me .233/5.56 is the peak of ballistic weapons I'd laugh in their face. We're pretty close to finding the "perfect" line up of cartridges for just about every realistic application but we're definitely not there yet.

        Here’s the thing: ballistic coefficient literally doesn’t matter for subsonic rounds. Another anon ran the data and 8.6 blackout drops at about the same rate as .45-70 subs

        • 1 month ago
          Anonymous

          I know. But it does matter for penetration. And my main point is that if it’s skinnier with a similar wounding effect (broadhead-tier expansion), the cartridge is, smaller, lighter, and lighter recoiling, and the mags can hold way more, esp if quad stacked - something that can’t really be done with a case head as wide as 8.6 blackout’s

          I’m just obsessed with quad stack and really like the idea of a minmaxed short range subsonic rifle/cartridge, limited only by trajectory, not effectiveness.

          This is limited to hunters and those who carry a gun for work, and maybe those who carry daily (in bad neighborhoods).

          Problem is people conflate a gun as being the physical manifestation of a thought experiment (fighting rifle, scout rifle, truck gun, etc) with being some need that they are fulfilling.. Like when tf are you gonna ever be in a gunfight that warrants the absolute cutting edge of firearms tech. In this case, it is a toy albeit the result of autistic calculation, but a toy nonetheless (my guns are of this variety). It’s the pretending that it’s something else that is cringe.

            I understand 100 motherfricking percent but I'm on the fence about "purpose" guns. On one hand it's homosexual shit, what situation are you going to be in where you are going to find use out of a $3000 riced out AR with all these gadgets on it over a standard M4 style AR? You're not a fricking mercenary in a hot zone bud, you may LARP like one but you're not. On the other hand, it's just cool. Having a fighting rifle that has every little autistic thing you want because you have this autistic train of thought that you actually need all the shit and once it's done you just take price in it. It's more of a fulfilling thing to these people than something built for a genuine/ realistic scenario which I say frick it have fun.

          If you could read more than 2 words without your brain giving up, you’d see that I specifically said pistol caliber NON-PISTOLS. I.e., pistol calibers belong in pistols, never in long guns. There will always, 100% of the time, be much better chambering solutions for long guns.

          The only time a case can be made for such a gun is if it’s a short SMG, and even then, rifle action length spitzer thumpers like 300 blackout are better in every metric.

      What guns were used for in 1776-1783 could be classified as assaults. Therefore a weapon that’s designed to be used to assault people should be protected under the 2nd amendment for that very reason.

      Now for a very boomer opinion. I think all striker fired guns should have manual safeties. If you don’t want a manual safety, get a DA.

        This pisses me off too. We give ground to the left and shy away from words. They win. Like yeah technically they aren’t assault rifles, but “modern sporting rifle” is contrived to be as non-threatening sounding as possible, not a coincidence. It’s like groveling and pivoting to self-defense when accused of an ism or phobia

        > Now for a very boomer opinion. I think all striker fired guns should have manual safeties. If you don’t want a manual safety, get a DA.

        But why? If the gun physically can not fire without the trigger being depressed, then all that is needed is the trigger dingus to keep it from ever being pulles unless a rotational force is applied first to disengage the dingus (a force that dropping the gun can’t apply). Striker fired guns are perfectly safe (p320 doesn’t count, doesn’t have the dingus). Net result is a passive safety and the time-consuming step of taking the safety off is omitted entirely

          >the gun physically can not fire without the trigger being depressed
          That’s basically true for true single actions as well. Sure they’re generally not drop safe, but that’s far from the only reason SA have safeties.
          The shorter, and more important point, is that training to disengage a safety is almost trivial. You don’t even need live fire you can practice it dry.
          The point is that thinking you’ll be 100% safe, 100% of the time while holstering/reholstering is absurd. I’d greatly prefer to have a manual safety and an additional point of failure before potentially shooting myself in the leg.

          If you are buying a HD gun for grandma who will never practice. Then get a DA. Normies have been using them forever just fine.

            The really short version is that if you train with a gun with a manual safety, you won’t forget to disengage the safety anymore than you’ll forget to pull the trigger. It’s basically a free layer of additional safety if you shoot guns with any regularity.

        You're right, I do think attacking the US is a terrible idea. The most (only) realistic path I can see for China to take taiwan is to attack it directly and hope the US doesn't intervene. Which is quite possible if Trump is president since he's said outright he would let them have it.
        Sinking an American ship, on the other hand, is probably the only 100% reliable way to get the U.S. into the war. It'd be suicide by cop on a national level.

          I call BS, being against China was a huge part of his platform. I don't even know how people say he's in cahoots with the Russians given that Ukrainian aid started under his administration, the worst he did was threaten to curtail it if Zelensky didn't give him info on Biden's doings. Neither of which actually happened, so he was probably bluffing. Saying he'd willingly aid the CCP seems like something greatly out of line with his policies.

    .32 does 9mm's job better than it.
    To explain myself, let's break everything into the same measurement systems.
    Now, the 9mm vs .45 debate is old. Bigger bullet or more bullet? But let's see how much bullet we're actually talking about. 9mm is .35 caliber. Calibers are smaller than millimeters and it doesn't cleanly translate, but for similar reference a .45 is about 11.43mm. So, the debate here is an argument over about 2 millimeters.
    We've established that 9mm is .35 caliber. So compare .35 to .32, and we see that it's not too much of a downgrade. And yet, with that small downsize, you should be able to hold more bullets, which is 9mm's niche. If we decide to use a .30 caliber/7.62mm bullet instead, we can fit even more into a similarly-sized magazine for not much of a size tradeoff. Keep in mind that with .30 caliber, we're basically only going down by a single millimeter, which is less substantial than the difference between 9mm and .45, and yet allows us more bullets. It's also a more convenient size for smaller, more concealable handguns, which is .32's current lot in life.
    And no, this actually wasn't supposed to be about .30 Super Carry, honestly I think even existing .32 and .30 caliber cartridges would be more suitable for high-capacity handguns, such as .32 ACP or 7.62 Tok. I could even see (if I strain my eyes) a comically small Deagle chambered in .32 Long

      Hit and a miss. There's no smaller round more capable than 9mm and that's hugely because 9mm has been eyed for a long time and it's been developed to a point where it is the BEST self defense round in terms of effectiveness and size. It's perfect, it's just the perfect pistol caliber, we found it.

        .32 has a higher one-shot incapacitation rate than both 9mm and .45 do. Part of that might be due to the engagement distance .32 is often used at (the approximate length of a poker table), but I'd say that's not too bad. Especially considering that some people may genuinely find themselves at such a distance in a self-defense shooting.
        Keep in mind that I'm not too biased since I own all 3 calibers I'm talking about. At least, I don't think I'm too biased. I like the small, light nature of the .32, and I like the big .45, but I can't really say I particularly like 9mm based on it's own merits as a cartridge, only because it's common and relatively cheap. I guess that's all you really need in the end since pistols just poke holes in things, but I can't help but think we haven't quite min-maxed this yet.
        Also I really want the moronic .32 Long mini-Deagle I thought up. Maybe make it hotter and call it .32 Magnum or something to catch the attention of brain-addled boomers that think .32 means you're throwing pebbles at someone.

          Alright let me just throw this out there... do you not think that this is because of 9mm and .45ACP being extremely more popular than .32ACP? That being said, I think .32ACP being kind of a niche caliber nowadays that most who decide on it genuinely did their research, understand the caliber and made a conscious decision to choose it over say 9mm. Whoever has that .32 knows what the frick they're doing and that being said they know wheee to shoot someone with it if need be. My point is, people who use more "niche" calibers tend to be knowledgable and people who use popular calibers range from knowledgable to absolutely moronic, which I think we can both agree a majority of people are fricking stupid.

            You're right, I forgot about this. I was figuring that shot placement might be easier for the average idiot with a smaller, lighter bullet, but it's just as likely they'll not even try and complain that they didn't incapacitate him. I guess if anything, the common man needs a larger bullet to increase the chances he hits a vital.

      People already do this and it is called the 5.7mm. Also hollow points stop working at .32.

      .32 is severely underrated and the recoil much more manageable than .380 in compact pistols and I want to see more companies besides KelTec start making firearms chambered in it, but it is in no way a replacement for 9mm firearms

          Bought it at Gator's Guns, but that was a coincidence

          I agree with all of these. Though, quality NVG may be a total waste of money, if you make a lot of money, like 6 figures it is really cool. Better than spending money on Starbucks or 30 different guns you'll never ever use, it's a great conversation piece for visitors, but most importantly of all it subdues my paranoia. I really feel like the king of the night.

          I disagree. .380 is the second worst caliber. 7.62x54 rimmed takes one. Look, I love the Mosin in Red Orchestra 2 much as the next guy and the gun is very cool, but the cartridge is a real piece of shit. It's too heavy for how poorly it performs as a full power rifle round, and I still don't get why to this day they use the exact same cartridge in the Russian Military. Corruption? I'm not in favor of adapting a new meme cartridge every 10 years, but this round is ancient. If everyone just used 9mm, 5.56 and 7.62x51 for most firearms we'd all be fine.

I'm just saying 9mm is more capable for a wider variety of things, as one anon said .32ACP doesnt have the power to have hollowpoints expand to their full potential. I really do need a 1903, I missed a NICE example for $400 a few years back and hate myself for not buying it. Also missed a Browning/ FN Model 1910 that was German issued for $500 a fee months ago. They're not rare and that's actually not a great price but still, I fricking wanted it.

      Oh and inb4 some revolver gay comes screeching about
      >bear gun
      Prepare to have your mind blown. I give you the Glock 20.
      Initially released in 1991, it features a 15 round magazine (about 3 revolver cylinders' worth), is chambered in 10mm (a caliber with slightly more muzzle energy than .357), and has a trigger pull of 4.5 lbs (about half the double action trigger pull of a .357 revolver). It costs $500-600 new (about half the cost of a .357 revolver), and weighs 30 oz (about 3/4 the weight of a .357 revolver). Like all semi-auto handguns made in the last 70 years, when properly maintained it is perfectly reliable, and (unlike revolvers) it is unfailingly preferred by police, SWAT, and militaries around the world.
      If you're worried about trusting your life to a gun, you should trust your life to the gun that has more stopping power, is easier to shoot accurately, and gives you more opportunities to get rounds on target. The supposed superior reliability of revolvers is overblown, and only exists as an ex-post-facto justification for revolvergays to feel like they're getting literally ANY benefits by choosing a revolver over a semi-auto. The reality is there are absolutely no benefits, which is why American boomers and the only people in the world that still choose to arm themselves with revolvers.

          New shooters are bad at shooting no matter what they’re sold. But if they don’t enjoy practicing because recoil, noise, and hand fatigue is so bad, then they’ll never get better. But with a light caliber comfortable handgun they’re way more likely to fire more rounds and get better. At least enough to shoot straight and not limp wrist.

      I agree with all of these. Though, quality NVG may be a total waste of money, if you make a lot of money, like 6 figures it is really cool. Better than spending money on Starbucks or 30 different guns you'll never ever use, it's a great conversation piece for visitors, but most importantly of all it subdues my paranoia. I really feel like the king of the night.

      I disagree. .380 is the second worst caliber. 7.62x54 rimmed takes one. Look, I love the Mosin in Red Orchestra 2 much as the next guy and the gun is very cool, but the cartridge is a real piece of shit. It's too heavy for how poorly it performs as a full power rifle round, and I still don't get why to this day they use the exact same cartridge in the Russian Military. Corruption? I'm not in favor of adapting a new meme cartridge every 10 years, but this round is ancient. If everyone just used 9mm, 5.56 and 7.62x51 for most firearms we'd all be fine.

        It’s because the 7.62x54 is a necked down smokeless cartridge based off an older black powder one and the rimmed case was considered acceptable at the time

        You're wrong on both counts.
        >.380
        Is a FANTASTIC pocket carry round, and 9x19 is grossly overpowered for pocket guns, and self defense loads are flashy and slappy in sub-compact pistols.
        >7.62x54R
        Can be loaded PISSING hot while retaining a short action, and the rim is fantastic for belt fed machine guns.

    An AR is not the supreme perfect home defense gun.
    An AR is not a good first rifle for a brand new shooter.
    Most hunters, especially East of the Mississippi, never take shots on game beyond 100yd - and within that range, literally every caliber with more ass than .22lr/.22 magnum is perfectly fine with prudent shot placement.
    That said, 350 Legend might be the perfect Eastern US medium-large game cartridge.
    A snubnose .38 revolver is perfectly adequate for everyday carry, and generally more comfortable to carry than most other options.
    A red dot on an EDC handgun is a great idea.
    More revolvers - specifically snubnoses - should have red dots.
    Anything you can do with a 12 gauge can also be done equally well with a 20 gauge, and the 20 gauge is a lighter package, which matters for hunting.
    If you carry a handgun every day, you should take that gun to the range at least once per month, to rest is to rust.

      Frick I remember being in highschool back when I was a little shithead and just watched Demolition Ranch and Hickok45 all day. He did his video on the mosin nagant and talked about how fricking cheap it was and I wanted one so bad, especially an M44. A couple months after I turned 18 I bought my 91/30 for $170 OTD along with a box of Tula from a pawn shop. I had only ever shot a .22lr SAA before and this rifle kicked the shit out of me when I shot it for the first time. I havent shot it in years and I don't want to, I just want it to stay how it is and appreciate it when I take it out every year to give it a good cleaning and a new coat of oil.

        Love that. I think cheap Mosins baptized an entite generation of gun enthusiasts who would've otherwise been too broke to get anything ither than a shitty .22lr.
        When I was 13 I discovered guntube and /k/ at the same time, and it coincided with the height of Mosins being cheap. I saved up $200 in lawn mowing money and begged my dad to buy me a Mosin with it; $100 for the rifle, and $100 for spam can ammo. 1928 Tula ex dragoon, came with a bayonet and two ammo pouches. Fricking love this rifle, I've put probably 2,000 rounds through it, and ever since I bought it I've autistically cleaned the absolute frick out of the bore after ever range trip. I still use it as my deer rifle, and it performs great, however as it approaches 100yr old I think I'm going to retire it from deer duty in favor of my AR.

      Depends how good of a shot you are. If you’re an average shitter like me and my friends, you’ll do way worse with a 20 gauge than a 12. Try it with skeet, if your score doesn’t go down with 20, congrats you’re a pretty good shot.

    Oh and inb4 some revolver gay comes screeching about
    >bear gun
    Prepare to have your mind blown. I give you the Glock 20.
    Initially released in 1991, it features a 15 round magazine (about 3 revolver cylinders' worth), is chambered in 10mm (a caliber with slightly more muzzle energy than .357), and has a trigger pull of 4.5 lbs (about half the double action trigger pull of a .357 revolver). It costs $500-600 new (about half the cost of a .357 revolver), and weighs 30 oz (about 3/4 the weight of a .357 revolver). Like all semi-auto handguns made in the last 70 years, when properly maintained it is perfectly reliable, and (unlike revolvers) it is unfailingly preferred by police, SWAT, and militaries around the world.
    If you're worried about trusting your life to a gun, you should trust your life to the gun that has more stopping power, is easier to shoot accurately, and gives you more opportunities to get rounds on target. The supposed superior reliability of revolvers is overblown, and only exists as an ex-post-facto justification for revolvergays to feel like they're getting literally ANY benefits by choosing a revolver over a semi-auto. The reality is there are absolutely no benefits, which is why American boomers and the only people in the world that still choose to arm themselves with revolvers.

    I'd like a glock with a manual safety. that's the main reason I don't frick with them

    .32 does 9mm's job better than it.
    To explain myself, let's break everything into the same measurement systems.
    Now, the 9mm vs .45 debate is old. Bigger bullet or more bullet? But let's see how much bullet we're actually talking about. 9mm is .35 caliber. Calibers are smaller than millimeters and it doesn't cleanly translate, but for similar reference a .45 is about 11.43mm. So, the debate here is an argument over about 2 millimeters.
    We've established that 9mm is .35 caliber. So compare .35 to .32, and we see that it's not too much of a downgrade. And yet, with that small downsize, you should be able to hold more bullets, which is 9mm's niche. If we decide to use a .30 caliber/7.62mm bullet instead, we can fit even more into a similarly-sized magazine for not much of a size tradeoff. Keep in mind that with .30 caliber, we're basically only going down by a single millimeter, which is less substantial than the difference between 9mm and .45, and yet allows us more bullets. It's also a more convenient size for smaller, more concealable handguns, which is .32's current lot in life.
    And no, this actually wasn't supposed to be about .30 Super Carry, honestly I think even existing .32 and .30 caliber cartridges would be more suitable for high-capacity handguns, such as .32 ACP or 7.62 Tok. I could even see (if I strain my eyes) a comically small Deagle chambered in .32 Long

    I'm intrigued by .32ACP but the only pistol that checks all the boxes for me is the Beretta Tomcat and those have cracking slides.

    https://i.imgur.com/12MeI2U.jpg

    Every one of these is correct.
    How about these?

    The war in Ukraine has been a catastrophe for Russia.
    Russia can hold on to the territory they've gained if they can outlast Western support to Ukraine.

    The United States is the world's foremost military power, and exceeds all other countries in every field by a large margin.
    The United States has difficulty nation-building, is capricious and unreliable with foreign policy, and struggles to completely defeat insurgents with military force.

    China is a corrupt shithole with a potemkin military, with delusions of grandeur and no real allies.
    China could sink a U.S. carrier strike group and destroy U.S. bases near their homeland with missile spam.

    All of the above statements are objectively true, yet almost everyone on this board and in the world has to pick one side for some reason.

    >The war in Ukraine has been a catastrophe for Russia.
    >Russia can hold on to the territory they've gained if they can outlast Western support to Ukraine.
    Agreed on both

    https://i.imgur.com/pgOl3an.jpg

    .380 is the worst caliber ever invented
    It has the ammo capacity of a 9mm but the stopping power of a .32, and it should be the other way around. They should have made it longer instead of wider.

    Wrong. As others have said 9mm is too snappy for pocket guns but valid for a duty pistol. .380 is perfect for pocket carry.

      >I'd like a glock with a manual safety. that's the main reason I don't frick with them
      Why not a Shield or a P365? Both are double stack strikers& both have manual safety options

      A smaller bore and smaller powder charge would always be quieter with an equivalent size suppressor.

      You can fit many times more of these broadheads into a magazine that will still prob be lighter than an 8.6 mag. I’m talking 100rd quad stack about the same footprint as a PMAG

      Also, 8.6 is still designed with supersonic performance as a consideration - it is 2 cartridges at once - and so it has more case capacity than is needed for subs. A straight wall .224 has just what it needs and nothing more. Tiny case head, super high capacity, small and light gun, and controllable full auto for when the Hughes amendment is repealed kek. Low energy, but distributed in a superior way in the target that punches well above its weight.

      Also, I think it’s really cool.

      Yeah, my big concern with .32 guns is that there are criminally few of them, your best bet is to find older guns or surplus in general. If I had to choose one still made now, I'd probably seek out a Walther PP, as they were initially designed for it, but that's also bigger than most .32 users would probably like, given it's currently a deep CC cartridge.
      I think a rimless .32 Long (beefed up a little if need be) would be nice. .32 Long is about the same length as .45 ACP, for reference, it's just much thinner so you'd be able to fit a lot into a magazine. Felt recoil is little different from a .22, so it should be really easy keeping the gun on target. But that's effectively fantasy, I may as well wish for rimless mini-shotshells optimized for magazines, or even for a girlfriend.

        Have you considered those revolvers chambered in .327 federal magnum, they can apparently shoot .32 acp.

        I don't have any .327, but it's a rimmed cartridge isn't it? I don't know if .32 ACP would work well, at the least the extractor wouldn't engage with the brass.
        Now, .32 Long, yeah, that's also rimmed. Can't say for certain but it seems to be a little shorter than .327, so the comparison is similar to .38 Special and .357 Magnum. As far as performance goes, it's probably about on par with .32 ACP despite being a longer bullet due to the pressure loss at the cylinder gap.

        I've looked at the LCR in .327 and it is interesting. According to most ballistic calculators I've looked at it has almost 4 times the energy as the .380 ACP I carry. I've never shot one though and my local range doesn't have any rentals in it to shoot.

    I think I have a genuinely unpopular opinion here.
    I fricking hate safety homosexuals. I hate seeing stupid youtube video where they're in a controlled setting just showing off some gun and for a split second the guy handling the gun "flags" the cameraman. Just for a second, muzzle is pointed towards someone, finger off trigger, guns cleared, everything done right still get people b***hing. I have enough faith in some of these obviously experienced shooter and collectors to have cleared the guns before filming and showing it off even if it's not on camera. But you go to the comments and you just see all the comments "wow this guy is a moron at 1:13 he flagged the cameraman" and "terrible gun safety this guy shouldnt own guns" it's all over the place, like these guys are fricking firearm instructors and think they're doing everyone a favor by pointing the shit out. I know that repetition and familiarity leads to complacency. We don't follow gun safety rules because we can't control ourselves we do it to avoid becoming complacent. Basically, I hate people thinking they're experts and point out every little "rule break". An empty gun is no more dangerous than a rock and people break the rules all the time and no one says shit. If you carry a gun you're breaking the safety rules. If you ever been in a gun store and took a look at a gun I'm sure you accidentally pointed it at someone or something you werent willing to shoot. I'm sure sometimes yall don't think about whats 100 yards behind your target and you don't check either. Safety is important and it's important because complacency is dangerous but it's not a zero tolerance thing, there is leeway with rules. Zero tolerance means zero reason.

        It's a true statement. Where's the reason in zero-tolerance? You break a law you are judged based on logic. It's not a jab at zero-tolerance it's a statement that there's no reasoning when it comes to zero tolerance rules, which is factually true.

                NTA but safety rules with firearms derive from the idea that under stress your ability to make those decisions will break down thus providing you with an instinctive backdrop to prevent something unintentional from happening. But I do agree that you get the added benefit of preventing stupid people from avoiding doing the same under normal circumstances.

      Gun bunnies are fricking awesome. I like guns. I like breasts. Two of the things I like, together? Frick the hell yeah.

      A concealable pistol, adequate training with it, and the will and resolve to use it covers you for 99% of instances in which you might need to use a gun to protect your own life. The chances of you being in a situation in which you might ever need to are slim, and the chances that you'll be in a situation that SPECIFICALLY calls for a fighting rifle are slimmer still.

      In that same vein, people are allowed to fricking buy things just because they think they're cool. Yeah, if I needed to protect myself, chances are it'll be with my CC at some shady gas station in the middle of the night, but I'm still going to buy a bunch of other guns because I think they're cool. I have a Jericho because I think space cowboys are cool. I have a nagant revolver because I think Zone cowboys are cool. I have an O/U because I think Mojave cowboys are cool. Some guns really are just toys, and gun ownership can be a fun hobby.

      High speed/low drag operators are fricking stupid, and if the apocalypse they keep fantasizing about happens, they will die, every single one of them.

    All of my favorite firearms to shoot are cheap. Ive fired a good amount of friends guns that have all the bells and whistles, optics etc and cost thosands of dollars, but I enjoy shooting my cheap beaters with ironsights. Except for my PTR91 If never paid more than $700 for a gun.
    Also cheap doesnt always mean garbage. Most of my guns are sub $400 and Ive very rarely had a malfunction let alone breakage.

    I also dont buy meme carry ammo or stuff labeled "defense" ++P+++. I carry what I practice with, which is usually the cheapest bulk ball ammo I can find.

      Damn, there's another one of me out there. The most expensive single gun I've bought was my PTR91 and it collects dust, but this P2000sk got to $1100 with the Trijicon sights and the match weight. I know that rifles are a little different, but for handguns, I've always felt that the $1000+ market has very little to offer for the average Joe. There are some neat designs like the Alien or P7 that are only attainable at a high price, but the majority of expensive pistols are just cheap pistols with a ton of hand fitting. A CZ TS 2 or a Tanfoglio whatever is still just a CZ75, the 92X Performance is still just a 92, a Wilson Combat/Les Baer is still just a 1911, and we could go on and on. The tricked-out versions of the guns aren't that appealing to me when I know that I can get the $600-700 base spec and get most of the experience. If I'm going to turn out my wallet for a gun, I want it to be exclusive. One of the worst offenders with this IMO is Korth, where they sell their $3,800 Mongoose with the same $15 Hogue Monogrip that you would find on a pawn shop Taurus.

          It would be easier if ammo was cheaper. I bought mine in 2015, and the cheap shit was 32c-35c a round. Now its 75c a round. That's $15 for one mag. I've never been much a rifle shooter anyways, so I can only think about how much farther that $15 would go in a different area of interest.

          how do you like that LCR?

          I love it. Handguns are very subjective, and to me, there are absolutely no downsides to the LCR. The trigger is great and makes accurate shots easy, it's light enough to disappear in your holster/pocket, and shooting it is absolutely fun.

      I can't argue with this. I also find it reasonable that shotguns should be fitted with bayonets, given their limited capacity and typical usage at shorter ranges. A bayonet is a natural extension of its ability to remove human innards or at least rearrange them.

    In the event of an actual war between America and Russia, we're going to have a huge problem with Americans selling out their own side to the Russians either for profit or just out of pure malice because Ivan's propaganda has been just that effective at penetrating every level of our society

      What, terminally online facebook boomers posting gobbless? If that's the biggest concern (and it probably will be given the state of the Russian military), then I almost welcome such a conflict.
      The real issue would probably still be recruitment. I know that on my part, even during such an invasion, I probably still wouldn't be keen on joining the military. I'll gladly be an anti-Ruskie bushwhacker if the Russians roll into my city (defense of my home and free surp too), but I am not joining the military proper.

    there is no need to carry anything other than a revolver for most civilian self defense. infact i believe a revolver is superior to a glock in almost every way when it comes to self defense.

        Not him, but I think the primary superiority of a snubby over something like a subcompact glock is this: highly comfortable concealability.
        I understand that there are myriad holster options for Glocks, and many of them are pretty comfortable, and with the right clothing very concealable. But picrel

        doesn't need a holster. That clip secures the gun in the waistband very well, and very comfortably. The revolver, aside from the cylinder, is much narrower than a Glock, and presses against the body more sveltly. I carry that snub AIWB in 6" gym shorts and a cut off t-shirt during the summer when I walk my dog or go go for a bike ride. It doesn't print, it doesn't sag, it's so small& light that I almost forget it's even there. It's got 10lb trigger, there's zero chance it's going off by accident, and it doesn't need a trigger cover/holster. A snubby is just so much easier to safely& comfortably carry than a striker gun.
        That said, obviously the glock will generally have a higher capacity and much better sights: I'll never refute that. I'm of the opinion that the capacity isn't a real issue, but many people disagree. I do wish snubnoses came standard with the ability to put a red-dot on, like the new Taurus TORO's, only those are 3" barrels& I'd like to see it on a 2". The sights on a snubose are generally the biggest weakness, so regular practice is key

        Primarily failures in my lifetime on all weapons are semi automatics either failing to feed into the ramp due to the gun being designed for non hollowpoint or a primer failure/ammunition failure (even in shotguns) both are not an issue in revolvers. In particular the entire issue of ammunition failure is solved by just pulling the trigger again, way faster than any drill to clear a semi. They are easier to check the status of in the dark and generally have slightly heavier and safer triggers. Use what you like. I always carried a pair of five inch 44 mags when I was worried about shooting people (normally people who might be standing right next to me or sitting in a car next to me. A big leather jacket is your friend and takes soft kevlar panels as well

        the ability to keep your brass is useful in a self defense situation for reasons i am sure you can see.

        courts also looks upon revolvers much more favorably than so called "military handguns". i dont see any point in saving my own life with a gun, only to be put away for 12 years because i used a "scary" looking gun in the eyes of 10 morons.

        if i need to pull out my gun and a cop arrives or sees, he is less likely to immediately shoot me if i am holding a revolver.

          3-9x is a feature, not a product. You can pay $100 or whatever for a Vortex Crossfire that I wouldn't even trust on a deer rifle, or you can spend $700 on a Leupold. They are not built to the same standard, and you do not want a low-end cheap chinkshit scope on a combat rifle. The Romeo 5 is good though.

    A constant stream of Ukraine war threads is entirely reasonable and to expect otherwise would be absurd, for several reasons. Other than the fact this is the largest near-peer war to take place in decades, it's also one that has major ramifications for shit going forward both for the West and East.

    But that's irrelevant, because the actual warfighting is so fricking /k/ that to want it off the board is insane. We see the evolution of infantry tactics in a modern-day conflict and Western equipment facing off against Russian kit, on a large scale. In the past, a US soldier firing a M249 at a collection of huts 500m away, filmed on a 240p camera was considered incredible combat footage. Now we have daily HD videos, including tank duels filmed with practically Hollywood-level camera work, CQC combat, missile POV footage where you can see the exact "oh shit" expression on a Slav's face before he ceases to exist in any meaningful way, pilots filming their own shootdowns and a dozen other things I'm sure I'm forgetting. This is a fricking golden age, the only problem is that there's a lot of frickers after the gold.

    I'm tired of every handgun looking exactly the same and the only reason we have this problem is because tactitards run the market. Every gun needs the same accessory rail to mount a flashlight, every trigger "needs" a dingus, the top of the slide needs to be flat for easy optics mounting, every trigger guard must be squared off, front serrations must be on every slide, and the inferior button mag release must be on everything. The last one pisses me off the most, because tactitards swear that their red dot sight and WML will give them a life-saving advantage, yet can't spend a little bit of time learning to use a paddle mag release. That's how you know all of the "tactical" bullshit is completely superficial and is driven by social media. People insist on doubling the price of their base handgun with accessories, yet demand a button mag release even though there are multiple videos a year showing accidental mag drops in gunfights because of them. If paddle mag releases were an aftermarket accessory that cost $200, I guarantee people would be putting them on everything, but they're not a flashy piece of equipment to post online, so they're being phased out.

    TL;DR: If your favorite pistol fits into this template, you are part of the problem.

    This is probably where I disagree with you. If it's not broke don't fix it. I'm totally fine with a generic SWSD9VE. Some people will b***h the trigger sucks because of the weight and not that they ever handled one. One time I got my finger stuck behind the trigger after the striker fired and my finger was pinched in there and I couldn't get it out. I'm flailing my hand around trying to get this thing off like thinking holy shit I'm glad nobody is watching me do this and this thing is unloaded but I managed to pinch the living shit out of finger with that thing and couldn't get it off while dry firing just because I figured that would happen if I did that but I still had to fricking try it anyway. I completely get if people want something that can't physically get jammed by the trigger if you ever seen those solid 1911 triggers where nothing can get behind it.
    With older weapons if they're used you don't know who's owned them or done with them. A lot of older 1911's have internal extractors inside the slide and riding it over the round would wear them down over time, what you're b***hing about. Other times I've seen rifles been used for decades don't matter who touches them the thing can't hit a fricking barn, shots are keyholing at 20 feet on paper when it shouldn't be doing that till it hits something fleshy much further away. I'd think damage to the barrel crown or muzzle break but there is no obvious reason why they do it I've seen dozens of people inspect these weapons say it's okay then no matter who uses it can't hit a fricking barn consistently with that specific gun. Actually that's why you don't replace parts with used parts. Weapons warp over time and the pieces wear a specific way. If you have parts swapped around from used ones they get out of tolerance in weird ways that don't work.

      If it's a defensive gun, which it is if it isn't for competition or hunting, then a gucci lightened trigger is not only unnecessary, it's a liability. The lighter it is, the easier it is for it to unintentionally discharge, and that's bad when paired with adrenaline

    There is very little practical difference in a revolver made in the 1850s and a modern state of the art handgun, in either handling, terminal ballistics or accuracy. Bear in mind that almost no pistol gunfights go on for more than a few shots and that virtually all modern handgun calibres descent from 36 cal 380/9mm or 44 cal 452/450 and since all handguns go is poke holes as long as they poke a 12 inch hole there is not much difference between them. Isn't it amazing we have made so little progress in a key personal defence weapon in such a long time? I'm not even going to talk about how the 1850s revolvers actually point better or are better at 75 yards than a 9mm semi either.
