I have been interested in purchasing a bow for myself for purposes including, but not limited to:
Learning to properly operate a bow, hobby/relaxing activity/target firing (I can't fire a firearm on my property, though I'm in the woods,) and bow hunting.
Would anyone here have an estimate on the initial financial commitment and/or correct way to go about acquiring a right proper bow for a beginner?
I have fired a bow before; not well, but I get the basic mechanics and such.
I live in Pennsylvania, if it matters.
I'm into archery a bit myself and have a recurve bow of my own. When just starting, you should figure out whether you prefer to shoot with a recurve/longbow or a compound bow, you could find a local archery club, where people might let you try out their bows, or many outdoors stores will allow you to test out a bow in their range to see if you like it. Generally, recurve/longbows are a bit cheaper ($150-200 for a good starter bow), while compound bows start at around $300. The learning curve on recurve/longbows is a bit higher, so you will probably need more practice to stay good with it. Compound bows on the other hand are a bit easier to learn, and allow you to use a heavy draw weight much more easily. In general, target shooters prefer recurve bows, while hunters prefer compound. To buy a bow, it is probably easiest to find a large sports/outdoors store like bass pro shops, but you will probably get better service and more knowledgeable staff at a smaller store or a shop dedicated to archery.
If you don't stop this you stupid stupid Americans deserve the any fascist state you get
disgusting, i spit on you scum!
I got here because of rainbow joker while I was looking for porn.
What's that, types of people once guns are made illegal?
yeah, pretty much, because guns being made illegal is basically inevitable.
yes, i gun
i even have a holster for it.
Greetings, /w/. I am looking into purchasing two firearms for two different purposes:
One for home/self defense, and one for hunting.
First, a little background. I have some military experience, and shooting is not something I am totally unfamiliar with. I have fired rifles before, ranging from a measly BB gun to fully automatic carbines. I have only fired a handgun once. My experience with shooting is, overall, amateur. I can currently land an overall poor average of 36/50 body shots (at 25 yards), and when I purchase a firearm, I intend to practice until I can raise that average up to 49/50, then beyond.
For a home defense, I was thinking about getting a handgun, preferably something with good stopping power, low recoil, and it shouldn't take too long to load seeing as basic gun safety dictates that you keep your firearms unloaded when you aren't using them. I was looking into getting a double action revolver for this purpose (I admit that I'm a bit of a romanticist for the old west, but I don't want to sacrifice functionality for aesthetics), like a S&W or perhaps even an H&R. It shouldn't be too heavy either, considering that my fingers are bony and a heavy handgun would probably be uncomfortable for me. I was also wondering about the advantages and disadvantages between five and six chamber cylinders, any info on this would help greatly (other than the obvious "one fires more bullets" jive). I wouldn't mind getting a semi-automatic pistol either, but I'd rather have something more powerful than a 9mm if I opt for one of these instead of a revolver.
For hunting, I'm feeling inclined toward a more basic rifle, one which has a shorter barrel, lighter weight, and carries no less than 4 rounds. My primary game would be deer and rabbits. I have little experience with bolt action rifles, so if I do get one, I would have to familiarize myself with it first. I feel that I should mention that I have more experience with iron sights over scopes as well, and any information on a comparison of their advantages and disadvantages would be much appreciated.
For home defense i suggest the Taurus Judge Magnum with a 3" barrel and rhodesian jungle specialty rounds. You can also shoot .45 LC from it or the 2 1/2 -3" .410 ammo
One point: if you live in "high density housing" it's still quite possible to kill your neighbors with even light buckshot (#4), if you do not have exterior walls. Two sheets of drywall can stop birdshot, but birdshot may not penetrate to the vitals of very large or heavily clothed assailants past a very short range.
I will be sure to consider it, but it looks like more of a novelty than a practical weapon to me.
This is very helpful. I find myself travelling between the city and suburban areas a lot.
Thanks for the info guys, keep it coming, the more the better.
So I am looking to get a starting firearm. I want to get something for around $500 or less. Now I have never shot a gun before but I'm not a weak man. I was looking into getting either a .357 magnum that way I can fire cheaper .38 special rounds or a shotgun. I'm not sure if I should start with a 20 or a 12 gauge. I also live in Massivejewtits. From what I understand one of the worst states to get into firearms as a hobby. Picture somewhat related.
Go watch the hundreds of videos about the lack of penetrating power Rockne salt has
>Rocksalt - Minimum penetration

I'm not even sure what you're trying to whine about there, still, have you ever actually been shot with rock-salt?

I got put in the nut house recently so yeah. I was going to get a Mossberg just because I didn't want my cawa duittee friends thinking I got the Remington from black cocks 2. Thanks all for the info and advice even though you all got side tracked about rock salt for whatever reason.

Is this story old news to you guys?
I want an assault shovel.
this post is fapidfire assault shovelware
not sure if this is against the rules or not
but I pissed some people off and may start carrying a weapon, guns are a no no in the uk and knives are for faggot chavs, I want an extending police baton know where i can find one online?
yeah and break your handm if youre going to do a loaded fist use a roll of dimes or the smallest coin 1/2" or so you gan get you just want the firming and the extra weight at the impact point jeez
oh yeah a roll of coins is also not illegal anywhere in the world to carry but if you want to do a bit more damage get yourself a painters 5 in 1 tool and sharpen it on the flat blade and on the backside of the scraping point and its a very handy weapon you can always say you just had to scrape off something and it was just in your pocket no worries, you can use that as a loaded fist, a slicing weapon, of even a blunt object if you get one with a metal heel like in this pic: http://imageserver.grainger.com/is/image/Grainger/16W170_AS01?$productdetail$ just scuff it around some so it looks like a used too.
Why would you break your hand? The shackle takes the impact, transfers it to the case, and the case carries it to the heel of your palm, which can take an impact better than a fist can.
In other options, try a Maglite. The 6-battery monster shown here you'd have to get on eBay, but even a 4-cell Maglite will do you good. And much like Zippo lighters, they're one of the few products still made to last, so it's a damn fine investment. They're so sturdy that cops in the US sometimes use them instead of batons. (But not in LA, they're not allowed to anymore.)
Won't nukes just do the jobs?
Why would you use the quote feature like that?
To answer your question, the conventional wisdom is that most nuclear bunkers won't survive a direct hit from a nuke - however, it is probably a waste of nukes to start targeting random nuclear bunkers, instead of taking out significant strategic targets like airbases, docks, railways, utilities and government buildings.
Is it possible to have a hobby in defense technology? I feel like it's impossible to explore as an amateur. You can read and strategies, but never go further into operations or technical.
Guns have tactical importance, but they don't go any higher. A general doesn't fight thinking the caliber of his rifle, but the fire power of his tanks, the range of his missile system, the placement of his ships, the response rate of his mines and how easy to use his jets are!
What's up /w/
I'm living in Switzerland right now, but will be returning back to the US during the Summer. I was wondering if there was any way I could bring back a SIG 550 series rifle (civilian semi-auto model) to the US as a "souvenir" of my time spent over here.
I've lived here for two years, so buying it won't be too much trouble, just get a permit to buy it and then an export permit to get it out of Switzerland. The problem is with getting it into the states. I know that the ATF doesn't permit commercial importing of the SWISS MADE sig rifles since they're foreign made and don't comply with 922r. But is there any way at all that I could legally import a Swiss Arms rifle? Fill out some forms and pay an extra tax or something?
922r is one of the dumbest regulations that you will ever come across - though there are ways that you might be able to adjust the part count with less important items which are from the US to get the part count down to the magic 10 imported parts. I would guess that a large portion of the parts from the 551 Classic are interchangeable with a Swiss made 550. If you take half from the US 551 and half from the Swiss 550 - you could get yourself two working and 922r compliant "550 1/2" guns.
Granted, you might be able to slip through if the inspector who signs off on the ATF form doesn't quite know what they are doing and just rubber stamps it on the way. I know when I was coming back from England, I brought back an FN which was legal - but they never bothered to verify that it was 922r compliant.
The final option which gets into that area of skirting the law is to break it down and have it shipped part by part to someone in the US. Once you get back to the States...put it back together again. It will likely be a violation of 922r - but no one will know unless you tell them.
Package it securely and cover it with other junk.
Ship to the US over period of a few days.
The only way you can be reasonably sure is to call the ATF. At the very least you will have to ship it to an FFL and pay for shipping, and transfer fees. Be prepared to wait several months to a year (possibly longer) because the ATF has a huge backlog of pending approvals. Every NFA firearm, suppressor, and FFL application is handled by less than a dozen people.
