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.

To add, you might consider looking into a Makarov or a CZ-82.
9x18 is similar to .380, and really cheap. Maks and CZ-82s are cheap and well made.

>first handgun

lolno. Get a .22 and lrn2shoot. learning such a skill takes a significant investment in time and effort, and you will go through a tremendous round count building proficiency. dry-firing will only take you so far and gives no feedback about your grip, stance, or follow-through. .22 LR will give you most bangs for dollar.

We are aware that the supply chain is currently under strain and .22 LR is not always easy to find, but it will come back. Demand cannot exceed supply this far forever.

tl;dr when you can put ten rounds in the 2"x3" x-ring of a B27 at 10 yards, then we can talk about centerfires

1. get .22 and lrn2shoot
2. ??????

Holy shit, that thing is awesome. Would probably have plenty of utility in a street fight, especially when compared to a regular bat.

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?

Sarah Palin 14/09/08(Mon)19:12 No. 15030

not made in japan but i got one through sbg.com it is made of two grades of T10 tool steel and is quite heavy for a more powerful swing at the time it cost me around $400 but the price will have gone up sine then. for a katana it is a good blade but there are better single edge swords out there ( those that bend instead of breaking)

Sarah Palin 14/09/09(Tue)16:25 No. 15031

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.

Sarah Palin 14/09/09(Tue)22:42 No. 15032

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.

revolvers have a smaller kick for the same round, due to the expanding gasses leaving the sides.

And also lower muzzel velocity

>its easier and quicker to load a few bullets into the revolver than it is to load bullets into a clip

also, who the fuck preforms a combat reload by topping off a box mag? carry more than one mag you retard

Sarah Palin 14/08/01(Fri)05:55 No. 15006

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.

Sarah Palin 14/09/05(Fri)13:12 No. 15026

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.

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.

Yeah, I was thinking some 5.56 or .223 varmint rounds or something, but that too.

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.

Sarah Palin 14/07/25(Fri)06:47 No. 14993

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

Sarah Palin 14/08/10(Sun)07:27 No. 15014

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.
