I'm looking to purchase my first handgun. I was looking at a cannick tp9 (9mm) or an Springfield XD in some sort of caliber, but my coworker told me I should just get a small cheap .380, since presumably I can't shoot for shit anyway.
I know he's probably right, so could you guys recommend a .380 that is both cheap and has some good safeties on it? I'm interested in target shooting and a little home defense.
I too suggest the Makarov. What the Russians do well they do really well.
For a first gun remember that a smaller gun is harder to shoot with
A 9mm is a good choice, it's hard hitting and inexpensive to practice with
Glocks are fairly cheap and come in different sizes
Let it be said if you don't need a self defence gun an old rugger .22 is great fun
A .22 is not a good Home defense round. Good fun and good hunting round but a .380 is as small as you want to go on a self defense weapon. The 9x18 is an ok round but you will not find it on most shelves. I prefer a .45 but a 9mm (x19) is a fine round and usually has more ammo capacity. Get as good a gun as you can and then practice.

Maybe this will breath some life into this board.
So this is where you hide
Got some Taz 90 today.
1.A heat source (hot plate, stove, etc.)
2.A hydrometer, or battery hydrometer
3.A large Pyrex, or enameled steel container (to weigh chemicals)
4.Potassium chloride(sold as a salt substitute at health and nutrition stores)
Take one gallon of bleach, place it in the container, and begin heating it. While this solution heats, weigh out 63 grams of potassium chloride and
add this to the bleach being heated. Constantly check the solution being heated with the hydrometer, and boil until you get a reading of 1.3. If
using a battery hydrometer, boil until you read a FULL charge.
Take the solution and allow it to cool in a refrigerator until it is between room temperature and 0øC. Filter out the crystals that have formed and
save them. Boil this solution again and cool as before. Filter and save the crystals.
Take the crystals that have been saved, and mix them with distilled water in the following proportions: 56 grams per 100 milliliters distilled
water. Heat this solution until it boils and allow to cool. Filter the solution and save the crystals that form upon cooling. This process of
purification is called "fractional crystallization". These crystals should be relatively pure potassium chlorate.
Powder these to the consistency of face powder, and heat gently to drive off all moisture.
Now, melt five parts Vaseline with five parts wax. Dissolve this in white gasoline (camp stove gasoline), and pour this liquid on 90 parts
potassium chlorate (the powdered crystals from above) into a plastic bowl. Knead this liquid into the potassium chlorate until intimately mixed.

Urine by itself? Impossible. Urine is chock full of... wait for it... UREA... which can be used to make urea nitrate (from pretty much any other nitrate). Urea nitrate is good (and dangerous) stuff. Be careful and have fun.
Just googled it.
So here we see Aluminum powder (as a fuel) mixed with urea nitrate (oxidizer). Pretty damn powerful explosion. You'll have to google precisely how to get pure urea from urine and then how to chemically combine the urea with potassium nitrate (or sodium nitrate if that's what you have).
I know you can buy stump remove in the U.S.
Go to Lowe's hardware store.
Go to the weed killer and herbicide and fertilizer section (whatever the all encompassing term for plant chems is.)
Buy Spectracide Stump remover- about $7 a pound.
Get some thin lengths of fire wood... little sticks you know. Put them in a metal paint bucket or some enclosed metal can. Seal it tight. Make a campfire with some other fire wood. Stick the metal container in the middle of it for a good hour (2 if you can). Keep the fire hot.
Let it cool. Open it up. Charcoal... should just be black but not burned. The softer it is the better.

Or just buy it. Gunpowder gun owners don't make it themselves usually and just buy it because in home conditions you'll never make it as good as from a manufacturer, and you'll spend a lot of time doing it by yourself.
Can we get some love for the old fashioned European weapons? I'm sick of all the katanas, fantasy swords, and guns flying around here. Spears and axes will stay the true kings of weaponry
I don't imagine why, even then, a sword pistol combo would provide any benefit. Sword weighs down the gun making it harder to use, gun limits use of the sword, and isn't necessarily designed to hit things directly like a sword
>I don't imagine why, even then, a sword pistol combo would provide any benefit. Sword weighs down the gun making it harder to use
The weight of the sword counters the force of the projectile reducing recoil and allowing for a larger projectile while maintaining accuracy.

Thread for the sake of it!(No Demotivators, gawd.)
>As recently as 1946, the unorganized militia has been used to remove corrupt government officials using violence. More recently, the unorganized militia used a show of force and media savvy to stop the federal government from massacring a man and steal his land.
And then you woke up, or what?
They have, just not in 'merica.
does somebody have toose cads?
Improvised weapons thread, for the happening.
Is that supposed to be a macuahuitl?
Sure looks like it, I thought the same.
From the descriptions it sounded like a great weapon. Easy to repair and produce, the obsidian shards had molecule-thin edges, meaning they were hella fucking sharp!
It's the swordbat of my people, and I'd be honored to use one.
Where can I purchase a true Katana in Japan? And what would be the price range?
If not possible any places that make great quality katanas from with better steel/carbon or iron?
Kult of athena has some Kris Cutlery katanas for some awesome prices. I bet they would easily be on par with the ronins and hanweis. I have one of there teutonic longswords and it is very high quality.
You can get something awesome for around 200 give or take if you are not as concerned with the tsuka being real rayskin and silk wrapped,etc.
Don't be an asshat. Buy a gun.
Cold steel in general makes shite blades, specifically the handles always become loose. Also shitty ceo.

Hey guys, what do you think of .303?
We hate tripfags generially, especially those who are as obnoxious as Zed.
that is one sexy lee enfield
>First time to 7chan
>First poster is ZED.
Seriously, what in the fuck
