Going to a gun show in Louisiana tomorrow afternoon.

I'd like to purchase a hand gun. What is a solid reliable gun that is ideal for beginner/intermediate skill level?

I can spend up to $800.

Cont. .. with half cocked it will take a decent amount to force to make it fire. I feel like you can easily accidentally discharge a Glock when you're in adrenaline fight mode or just by accident. With half cocked you will literally know that you are squeezing the trigger intentionally
Hm, cool man. Thx for the perspective
>high quality handguns.
Which are... ?
For a light, 10round every day carry, I've been eyeing up the HK VP9SK, looks sexy without that glock imitation style. But I've been seeing bad reliability results all over youtube when I was doing my research on it. I want something different than what I already have, so a small, striker fire every day conceal carry option that fits in the pocket. I'll have to get a holster for my phone instead, so that they don't share the same pocket.

Snubbies are great for concealed carry. I have a Taurus 85UL in .38 special.
I like my new bodyguard, but I get the impression that people hate the new ones.

also, what kind of bullets are those. they look really weird
I love the old ones honestly.
The rounds just look like regular unjacketed semiwadcutters to me

How is it? Never tried a Taurus.

There's a website where some guy compiled a really comprehensive list of 5.56/.223 cartridges and their viability in regards to penetration and stabilization. Does anyone have a link to that site?
Are there any modern belt fed machine guns that fire from a closed bolt?
Is it possible to swap out the rail on an AUG A3 for an original integrated scope?

Will a Chinese AK chest rig be fine for storing SKS stripper clips? I know there are SKS-specific rigs, but I may get an AK someday.

>“The engineers worked really long hours to keep the boat running and making repairs as they came up,” Davanzo said. “If you could imagine living in an earthquake—that’s the only way I can associate it with 24 hours a day and everything rattling and vibrating. Sometimes we would get screws that would fall out from the overhead. Occasionally, a bracket or something would break and damage control men would weld things and make repairs as we’d go.”

As Foxtrot Alpha has reported, Congress doesn’t seem to see the need for prioritizing icebreakers. The Coast Guard has repeatedly said it needs three heavy and three medium icebreakers to fulfill its operational needs, including rescue mission readiness, lane cutting and other essential duties needed to maintain an active presence in Antarctica and the Arctic Circle.

There are a number of problems with the Coast Guard operating with only one heavy icebreaker that is working past her time. For one, if the Polar Star were to have broken down during the mission, the crew could have been stuck in the middle of the ocean for months until the ice loosened; the crew keeps more than a year of supplies onboard just in case.

Why not just use ski-equipped C17's for resupply?
You idiots need a lesson in the history of the Sea. Those who occupy unclaimed/contested territories eventually lay claim to those unclaimed/contested territories. Weather stations are often the first to set foot in those lands....And then the resupply begins....more infrastucture......

If having an armed citizenry is supposed to stop foreign invasion then why did the South lose to the North in the ACW?
50 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
The Houthis have support from other factions and live in an area of relative lawlessness, where obtaining APCs and other costly items is as simple as pillaging them. The Mujaheddin had direct support from the United States.
As it turns out, it takes more than elan to win a war. It takes a good deal of logistics and industrial capacity with which the South was inferior, and a strategy, which the South also lacked.

>>What is lack of foreign support
>>What is a war of attrition
>>What is a lack of industrial base
The south needed (1) a quick victory (2) foreign recognition and support (3) more men and factories than they actually had. If the south had pulled a Sherman and torched the North's agricultural base, and maybe burnt DC or NYC to the ground, I think they could have won. Basically the South lost for similar reasons to why Germany lost WW2. Insufficient manpower, insufficient production, and high quality irreplaceable troops being lost to zerg rushes.

The foreign support bit is vital though. That's how we won the Revolutionary war. If Civil War 2 Electric Boogaloo kicks off, you can bet your ass that Russia, China, and maybe the UK will be arming/supporting the faction(s) of their choice. My bet is I'll be getting slavaboo surplus with a giggle switch.
It would have taken a politically unacceptable and potentially logistically impossible strategy of digging in and bleeding the Union white while fighting for the Mississippi River, or at least New Orleans, and keeping SLOCs to Europe open for the South to win imo.

They never really put together a coherent and workable plan for countering the Anaconda plan.

Tell me it's a bad idea, especially since there are so many other guns and ammo I could buy with that kind of money. I also only have 1 gun, an AR15 w/geissele SSA, no optic (although I'm pretty gud with iron sights).

I could buy a Benelli M4. I could buy a 590 and a Shadow 2. Even a Scar 16s.

>Tell me it's a bad idea, especially since there are so many other guns and ammo I could buy with that kind of money.

i think its a stupid fucking idea and i'd buy a factory pistol and an acog for your ar instead but im not you.
Possibly because it actually had hard work and time put into it's construction?

Any fucking faggot in his mom's basement can glue shit to his aluminium, cerokoted garbage and say, "I KNOW WHAT I HAVE, CUSTOM 1911, 6k NO LOWBALLIN'."

While it should take actual men making actually quality guns worthy of being passed down for generations to even make you consider paying that much.

Buy it then you cock monkey, I'm sure in a couple years when I see it on gunbroker for a thousand and no bids will I be certain you really enjoyed your purchase.
