Yay, a friend of mine invited me to shoot his .38 lever action sometime this week
We are going to use some other toys as well and I'll take some pictures.
.22 is fine for self defense too, there's higher powered rounds sold that have more muzzle velocity than .25 ACP. I still wouldn't carry one, but people make it out to be much worse than it really is.
I just learned that my uncle has a WW2-era M1 carbine that he uses for home defense.
As well as three 1911s - one made in WW1, an officer issue that saw service in Vietnam, and a more recent knockoff edition. Ton of revolvers and shotguns too.
Hit someone at close range with an M1 Carbine and it's lights out, like getting hit with a buff Colt Python.
So my store got in a Baikal side-by-side 12GA Coachgun, and the best part is IT HAS FUCKING HAMMERS THAT WORK! Also, it has 2 triggers and you can shoot both barrels at roughly the same time. The only problem is it's $600...
Sexy motherfucker, and removable chokes too.
I need some help. My barrel bushing snapped on my 1911 officers model. I don't know if I can easily find replacement part or if I need to get to a gunsmith. Any ideas?
I wonder if you could make wax slugs out of those 22LR Shotshells.
They're doing a whole bunch of gun myths on Mythbusters, anyone checking it out?
First link is WWII period guns, second is '20s production.
This might seem like a silly question, but they're cheap enough so I may as well ask: How hard do you guys think it would be to modify a Nagant revolver to have a flipping cylinder?
I'm thinking very because of the seal.
I don't doubt one could make a new Nagant revolver with a sealing cylinder, but modifying an existing Nagant to make it work, you mind as well build a whole new gun.
A better design if you ask me is a break open action like a Schofield (<-Mmm) or a Webley.
Wish there was a gas sealing black powder percussion revolver though because god damn. My Navy leaks BP fouling everywhere when I fire it and it builds up on the front of the cylinder and makes it difficult to draw the hammer so I have to wipe it off with a damp cloth each time I reload, and this is with 15 grains of powder, the gun can easily handle 25 grains.
Would be nice if I could get some smoother percussion caps too, the CCI caps I have don't pop, they EXPLODE and it's fucking annoying because the bits of copper fly into the frame and jam the cylinder between shots more often than not.
They should just bulge out and fall off when the hammer was drawn, also serving to block the gas, not be packed full of dynamite and explode.
while I'm thinking about it, my dad mentioned to me last night that he saw an ad on craigslist for a "Russian M16A1 clone"
anyone know what the hell the ad is talking about?
Has anyone got a link to that web page where the two guys re-chambered their Mosin Nagants?
How much do you guys know about converting an SKS to detachable magazines? Is it just a few parts to swap out, or is it rather complicated?
Fired a Desert Eagle .44 for the first time today. I am not impressed. The thing has way too much recoil and takes me a couple of seconds to resettle it back on target. I don't see it being practical in combat. Maybe for target practice or hunting.
My teenage dreams are crushed.
Bot Used: "Viral Advertising"!
It was ineffective...
But there's a drawback if you are a reloader, he said it threw casings up 40 meters away.
Whereas with a revolver, it's much easier to keep track of your casings.
A woman somewhere here tried suicide with a 22. guess what happened?
She survived and woke up from a coma:
B. with permanent brain damage
She died because .22lr is still lethal?
The bullet ricocheted off her skull and she discovered to be bulletproof, and now she fights crime?
She was the Chosen One and her death allowed the demon lord Zel'Nharg-lar to possess her corpse to come into our realm, and now the planet is fucked?
