Concealed carry, home defense, range shooting, you name it.

These debates are always covered in AIDs and Cancer.

If you properly maintain your firearm by lubing and cleaning the chances of jamming is almost non-existent. At the end of the day it's all about aesthetics.

I prefer a pistol. Simply because they're far faster to reload - provided you don't only have one magazine for it. The down side is that you're not reloading a magazine mid-combat. With a revolver, if you simply have a few round rattling around in your pocket, your reload will be faster. But this simply comes down to preparation.

While hardly anyone in this argument has a necessity for combat-load on ammo, it wouldn't hurt to have three or four magazines loaded and on you.

Basically, it comes down to preference, though. I'm far more familiar with pistols than revolvers, therefor prefer them. The advantage that revolvers have is potential accuracy boosts from single-action; however, I have a rifle if I need long-distance precision.

I also like that pistols tend to be lighter than revolvers (please note the word "tend"). While the weight difference isn't anything immediately notable it can be if, for some reason, you're in an extended fight with the weapon readied up constantly.

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've always fancied one of these being handy as a concealed weapon, especially if sharpened.

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?

Cold Steel is shit. If you look at websites that sell used and damaged weapons, the majority of broken/damaged/flawed weapons are Cold Steel.

Also, on a different note, Katanas are one of the worst types of sword. I can't think of any advantage they would have compared to almost anything else, save for maybe bronze age weapons. Almost no change in design for 700 years, the whole "muh thousand layers" technique is actually antiquated as fuck and was used by the Celts in 300s BC.

And they weren't even used to inflict the majority of damage in battle. That was done by bows, spears, etc. Katanas were pretty much last resort weapons. A good european sword designed for fencing would wreck a katana 9 out of 10 times, all other things being equal.

Oh, and also, if you inted to fuck around with it, get the Apokatana from Zombie Tools. It's katana-like, extremely durable(and I mean EXTREMELY) and has an aesthetic that only benefits from frequent use.

However, it's heavier than a typical katana, so there could be balance issues. Think of it as a cleaver-ish katana.

This. Japan has quite literally some of the worst quality iron ore in the world. They invented ideologies and martial arts around mastering the katana when they would just get destroyed by most European weapons.

It would be cool to see what everyone thinks. Personally, I love the DD Mk18 licensed rails, but some may think they are fairly boring.

I would never use a carbine for home defense unless I also felt like shooting my TV, two walls and the neighbor. Any 5.56 or 7.62 would go right through someone.

I recently came into a Mosin-Nagant in decent condition. Whatever the previous owner had used to lubricate the mechanisms with was some dark brown, amber-ish colored gunk that looked like it was really ready to be cleaned off and replaced. It looked like some sort of very poorly refined oil. I've cleaned the entire mechanism and only about half way through began to wonder if there was a particular point in this gunk.

Now that I've cleaned it off and oiled it down, I've come to the opinion that the bolt is a bit harder to operate than it was before I cleaned it. I'm wondering if maybe this thicker grease was partially to help offset the grinding of the bolt caused by a particularly sturdy spring. So what does /w/ use to oil their Mosin-Nagant to keep the bolt loose?

PS, there's an empty slot for what looks like a rod in the wooden body under the barrel. Was this rod used to force out stuck shells, or did it have some other purpose? How retarded would it be to mount a laser sight in there?

Do not use Windex or other household cleaners. Waste of money. All you are doing is trying to wash away the corrosive salts deposited in the barrel. Boiling water alone will accomplish this.

Yeah, windex is way to dilute to offer more than negligable benefit over hot water

I've read in some reloading manuals that some corrosive salt deposits can get trapped under copper residue from the rounds, and ammonia, being a copper solvent, can remedy this. Hoppes #9 has ammonia in it, so as long as you use water and maybe a little ammonia you're good.
