The Firearm Topic

Recommended Posts

Let's not turn this all into a debate. But really there isn't a whole lot of difference between a .223 AR and a ruger 10/22, the 10/22 might be a little more fiddly, fire a lower power calibre, but both can use drum mags, and fire semi auto, and most importantly, if they are used on innocent and defenseless people/children there isn't a whole lot of difference. When it's an execution, worrying about getting mags restricted to 10 rounds means f*ck all when nobody is shooting back. It stops nothing, all firearms are equally dangerous, not one design is so far more dangerous than the other that one should be outright banned from any public use whatsoever. We all know the cosmetic look, action type, or design has no real bearing on it's intended use. If something is good enough for military use it is just simple to understand it will probably be good enough for general civilian use, that goes the same for all types of military gear, such as clothing and electronics. Just because a military uses it does not mean it is more dangerous or has a better ability to kill. Infact I would say, at least within the last 15-20 years or so, often civilian weapons rival or exceed what a military are using. It used to be that civilians would later adopt what the military used to use, now it seems it's the other way around, that civilian and sporting adpotion of new firearms, accessories and equipment tend to sway what a military might adopt for it's own use. If anything a modern military might have more outdated equipment than what US citizens can buy for private ownership. Except for the full auto switch of course.

 

Anyway, f*ck all that sh*te. Some old AR's and AK's are awesome.

 

Oh come on, there's a huge difference. Nevermind the few thousand more feet per second and hundreds of foot pounds more energy the rounds in each rifle shoots, but have you ever shot a bad round and had a 22 jam? I think a shooter would be lucky to get through a 25 round magazine with a 22 autoloader.

 

The AR15 is not an effective killing machine because of it looks. In fact when it was introduced people joked it was made by matel, and loathed the small caliber. The image of the AR 15 has evolved into what it is now because of the obvious military usage, its appeal in action movies, but also because of the sensationalism in the media every time someone used one to slaughter several people. Yes they probably could have used any number of moderate to large caliber semi-automatic rifles but they didn't, and why do you think that is? Because when they think "I want a killing machine" their imagination doesn't have to wander far to identify the AR as fulfilling that role. It's almost a case of life imitates art imitates life... Do people believe the AR is a killing machine because it's used so often in mass murder or is it used so often in mass murder because it is a killing machine? When you take into consideration that the the US military has been using the same basic platform for years due to reliability and effectiveness it doesn't seem to me like people are choosing them because they're "black and scary" as the media had portrayed, and it's pretty hard to argue that it started as a military implement that has just been adopted by recreational users. I mean I bet that the M1A1 makes a hell of an off road vehicle, but it's still a damn tank. Merits don't change the intent of the design,just like I could kill someone with a hammer just as soon as build a house with it, but people don't see hammers as weapons; now hatchets on the other hand, and once again it's our friends in Hollywood that have people envisioning are murders and Apache warriors at the mention of a hatchet rather than cutting wood.

 

And while I am ranting, what about bolt action rifles? They started out as weapons of war, but now are seen as deer rifles. Meanwhile Charles Whitman kicked this whole mass shooting patten off with selective fire with what people would regard as hunting rifles, but were really guns that have been blasting basketball sized holes through people since WWI. Some of the deadliest implements ever invented, I mean think of the world changing events that hinged on a single rifle shot. Yet people think of them as innocuous.

 

Wasn't there a really bad shooting in Australia where a guy killed 12 people with a shotgun and a 22? I don't know to me it just doesn't seem like mass shooters put much thought into planning, no matter what gun they use. If psychopaths like that were really more of the planning, master-mining types then we would be seeing more incidents like the OKC bombing than mass shootings.

if someone has decided that they're going to commit a mass-shooting, they're going to use what they have access to. the type of weapon itself is kind of irrelevant once the bullets actually begin flying at soft/innocent targets. the "original" mass-shooters @ Columbine, for instance, didn't use weapons that would have been restricted under some kind of 'assault weapons' regulations. depending on your targets and your own volition, you can wipe out an entire office building with a revolver.

 

we shouldn't be having this argument here.

this place is where legal and responsible owners can talk about ownership and sport. we have plenty of other spaces in which to debate the moral implications...

How many times do the "ermergawd, guns" arguments need to infest this thread... f*ck off to D&D with that pish...

 

Anyway, I thought this was pretty cool for an airsoft. Not very practical if you're using it for pissing around with friends in a field, but still pretty cool.

If you read my first line, there is no difference when it's used in a way that mass media fear about, so the point is irrelevant. And I have shot hundreds of rounds with my M&P 15-22 without a hangup. Some say that a .22 at close range can often be more deadly due to it not exiting a body and having a richochet within the body causing more havoc. And besides .22's can get up there in velocity anyway with stingers and velocitors.

 

The rest, we all know and no need to preach to the choir.

 

Anyway, this .50 BMG is naughty.

 

 

 

Sorry I gotta post this as well.

 

If you think .22 can't be reliable, well prepare to jizz on this.

My point with my original post on this was to essentially say that dead is dead. Anyone can use an AR for a purpose. And anyone can take a .22 rifle and make it look like an AR (or not), and use it for the same purpose (or not). They function in the same manner, where a round wad of lead flies in a straight line toward a target when pulling the same weight trigger each time. Regardless of caliber, 10 bullets can kill 10 people. There being little reason to alienate one gun for being used for a specific purpose, when it can be substituted for something less demonized and still complete the same task. I hope that ends this little spat, and lets talk about fun stuff!

 

This week is focusing on shotgun chambers and chokes, and holy crap, shotguns are a lot more complex than I thought they were. I had no idea there were so many ways to choke a shotgun, and I learned that shell lengths are actually measured by their length ​after they have been fired. A 3" magnum shell will fit fine in a 2 3/4" chamber, but is liable to do some damage, or at least mess with the shot pattern.

 

I really need to find somewhere to do some duck hunting or trap shooting or something,. Not much in the way of that in Ohio that I know of :sigh:

I hear there's some pretty nice AR 15 clones in 22LR.

 

Also I didn't mean to sound like I was starting an argument, I think people just don't give the origin of some gun designs the merit they should.

So I saw a tokarev today and felt very tempted to get it on layaway. Only thing is I don't know a whole lot about them. Also this was at a pawn shop so I don't know if I can trust the quality, but I would have 6 months to pay it off which is pretty good considering I only had 2 months from the gun store I go to.

Is the Ruger Mk III any good? I've heard good things about the Mk II, but how does this compare? Better? Worse? I've also heard that it's a pain in the ass to disassemble, is it true?

 

Buy a Buckmark instead.

Jesus, 10 years ago they had to almost give them away. IIRC, a local shop had them for like $110.

 

Is it time for me to sell the five AR-15 recievers I bought in 2006 yet?

edit: No. They have depressingly not inflated in value to ridiculous new levels.

I talked to a gang members today that open carries. He was an OG though so he's old and not banging, but he has all kinds of Sureno ink. The way he put it is even if he could afford to get them removed or covered, then his gang would f*ck him up or kill him, but having the ink makes him a target still, so I guess because he never got any felonies he just open carries.

 

Not sure how I feel about that. I mean on the one hand he's an admitted criminal carrying a gun around, but on the other hand he's a person and still deserves to be able to defend himself.

 

My favorite was when I asked if the police bug him. He said at first it was like having his own private security escorts because they would follow him everywhere lol

My old man has the M&P .22. Fun as all hell to shoot, and most importantly it's cheap to shoot too. Has never jammed once in 300+ rounds we've fired out of it. .22 is finicky though. You really have to match your ammunition to your firearm in most cases. Some brass just runs better than others. It's really just a mix and match kind of thing and you need to find what works well with your firearm. I've noticed this a lot in AR's too, in both 5.56 and .308 AR-10's.

 

While were on the subject of .22 pistols, my uncle owns a Ruger SP101. Really, really nice shooter.

 

SP101.jpg

 

Can be fired single or double action. Super fun to plink around with and once again, reliable as all hell.

 

Damn.. I really need to get my pistol permit. I've been delaying it for too damn long.

What do you mean? If I'm not mistaken all 50 states have a varation of the Castle Doctrine which allows you to protect your home/business/personal property without fear of being charged.

Thanks for the reply i ended up going for a pair of HATCH Specialist All-Weather Shooting/Duty Glove $19.99 and they fit quite nicely and feel good when shooting.

 

I finally decided to buy the ArmaLaser TR10 for my SCCY-CPX2 it fits perfectly and the beam is quite bright even in the daylight outside, My CPX2 is my personal sidearm i carry everywhere so god forbid if i'd have to use it i know i won't miss but i haven't had a chance to take it to the range to make sure it's calibrated correctly although looking down the sight it's lined up.

Oooohhhh, I'm only familiar with my own states laws. I thought I read/heard that other states had some very strict rules on non permit carry. All I know is GA is very easy going on firearm carry. Even registration is not necessary. Maybe I should brush up a little

To be honest, that sounds very expensive and impractical. Might be fun as a range toy but it just loses its fundamental purpose of being a light machine gun.

So i helped teach my first concealed carry class and i gotta some people really scare me and shouldn't come within 1,000 yards of a firearm.

 

We had this nurse in our class and she talked about how bad she feels when she see's an innocent person come into her ER with a gunshot after being robbed and didn't want it to happen to her and thoughout the whole class she was cocky and confident that she knew EVERYTHING about firearm safety.

 

While we were going over the proper way to handle a firearm she kept say, Everybody listen up this will keep you from coming into my ER and such and interrupting up and trying to teach the class.

 

After spending 8 hours with her in the classroom we finally moved onto the shooting portion of the class and she brought a 357. to shoot with after telling her how impractical it was we got into the range and she was in the first group of people.

 

In the first round as we fired all rounds in the gun, Well in the 2nd round we did a 3 round volley well after she fired her 3 rounds she brings the muzzle of the gun and puts it under her chin and cocks her head sideways.

 

two of us pulled our own firearms out while one of the other rangemasters grabbed the gun from her and asked what the f*ck she was doing? she said oh i'm just resting and looking at how good i did, i did good didn't i?

 

The lead instructor looked at her and said have you ever had any sucides come into the ER where they shot themselves from under the chin? she said oh yes it's so sad.

 

He said well you almost just blew your head off here in front of 30 people by putting a loaded gun under your chin with your finger still on the trigger.

 

He emptied her gun and told her her pack her sh*t and get out and don't ever come back to his shop and she actually so dim she couldn't understand why she was being kicked out and being failed.

Sorry you had to deal with that nonsense, I don't believe I've ever heard a positive story come from a firearms instructor. I take it her .357 was fairly large and bulky, or do you find revolvers to be impractical as a carry gun? While they're certainly outclassed by most pistols nowadays, I find snub-nosed J frames to work great for pocket carry or as backup guns. For one of those two roles, I'd personally rather have a 5-shot .357 over a ~7+1 .380/9mm/.40/etc. that'd be prone to jamming, magazine failures and what have you.

So I just discovered that FN made or is making a semi-auto M249. And it does take belts of ammo.

If you care:

 

 

 

He also has done an accuracy test with it.

 

I am not too bothered to be honest. I am not a big fan of the gun. I prefer the Minimi Para version rather than the M249 version. And yeah, with it just semi auto only it isn't really useful or desirable to shoot in that mode. A .22LR belt fed is fun, but a semi auto belt fed just doesn't do much for me. I would prefer if any a more classic style one like a nam era M60 or older. But still, I guess I just like small lightweight guns rather than massive heavy things. I would always choose a Stoner 63 or BAR over one of those in semi.

 

Plus, you have to deal with loading the links and cleaning that mess up afterwards. It is cool novelty but that gun in particular is a bit whored out nowadays. I would prefer the M240 or something even older.

 

 

And yeah that woman sounded like a nutjob. What a c*nt. If you aren't going to take it seriously you need to gtfo.

Sorry you had to deal with that nonsense, I don't believe I've ever heard a positive story come from a firearms instructor. I take it her .357 was fairly large and bulky, or do you find revolvers to be impractical as a carry gun? While they're certainly outclassed by most pistols nowadays, I find snub-nosed J frames to work great for pocket carry or as backup guns. For one of those two roles, I'd personally rather have a 5-shot .357 over a ~7+1 .380/9mm/.40/etc. that'd be prone to jamming, magazine failures and what have you.

Nah, having a revolver isn't impractical as a concealed carry firearm it depends really on who you are and how you're gonna carry and who you are.

 

I personally think a revolver is the best conceal carry firearm for females to carry as they are small and less bulky then some pistols and fit nicely in a small pocket in their purse, Or for those who wear a suit and tie to work and want something small a revolver is a good choice.

 

I really like my SCCY-CPX2 but i'm starting to find it's flaws such as double feeding or the slide locking back while in the middle of shooting and taking a minute to get it to disengaged.

 

I like it a lot but with the issues with my hands i think i need to switch to a S&M MP as the trigger pull on my CPX2 is quite heavy and unless i'm taking my time to aim the gun fires low so i need to find a gun better suited for me but sadly the CPX2 was really the only weapon i could afford at the time but i think with a trade i can get a decent gun without too much out of pocket.

I am a bit nervous about cleaning my Glock 19... I have watched videos and such on proper gun cleaning, yet, I still have the feeling I am gonna mess it up somehow... I can take apart, and put back together the firearm with my eyes closed, but cleaning it is where I get iffy.

 

Is there any info that you guys could give me to help me not worry as much about cleaning it incorrectly? Could you recommend any specific products that you use and swear by? Thanks for any help

I use Break-Free CLP and RemOil Wipes for lubrication, and have a Winchester gun cleaning kit that holds an assortment of tools (rods, wire brushes, etc.) that all tend to work pretty well. Just don't overdo the lube (it's easy to do just that with the wipes I mentioned; they're oily as f*ck), be relatively gentle with the tools and avoid using any materials that might scratch up or otherwise damage the gun, and you'll be fine. Of course, if you have any doubt in your mind about performing a certain action, be sure to look it up online or ask an expert rather than say "f*ck it" and potentially cause irreversible damage to your firearm.

I really would recommend getting some sort of kit though, it's absolutely worth the investment.

Just don't overdo the lube. Too much lubricant attracts unburnt powder and other things and gums up the works. Don't make the mistake of thinking more is better.

 

Otherwise man this is one thing people often invest a lot of thought into, but you don't really need to.

 

Just whatever you do, don't let the barrel sit dry for too long. You want to keep it oiled as much as possible to prevent rust from forming in the rifling. If you shoot it every week you probably don't have to worry, but if not you should make sure it's oiled up well at least once every three months. Some of them are formulated to last longer than others, but once an oil dries it is no longer protecting from oxidation.
