Dunno if I'd do that. I mean I guess it's harder to no-charge than reloading, but in general I don't like the idea of my eyeballs being on anything but that kind of work.

Overall though, no. Not hard.

Always patrician. The Piettas are ok. Ubertis are a little better out of the box in terms of feel, but there's nothing functionally wrong with Piettas.
I was thinking about a Zouave repro, since I've seen a bunch on gun broker for reasonable prices and I'd rather shoot a cap than flintlock
Chiappas/armisport repros are cheaper but reviews are really mixed, which makes me doubt a lot
Some people praise them and say the fit and finish is on par with pedersoli, and others tell of ill fitting barrels and percussion mechanisms, of fucked up rifling that makes your accuracy non existent until your re rifle it for another 300$, bringing the cost to pedersoli levels...
Pietta's Smith carbines also are interesting but they are out of stock as of now in a majority of inventories and production of new ones will resume in 2020...
Spanish gats are a big no no, i had 3 and they all died quite fast, because the fit and the parts are not of the best quality
Pedersoli seems ok but extremely expensive and once you dig on forums about problems with them, you start fearing for your money (on enfields for example, the stocks break where you put your hand and it is not covered by them, you gotta pay... Furthermore on some gats the wood is litterally shite under the oils and treatments)
No opinion, but fuck off tripfag

So I'm retarded and used to have an issue with my mosin, still do actually where when I shot it, it became a fucking musket. I'd fire and every goddamn time the casing would get stuck, no matter brand or surplus ammo. I'd have to tilt the rifle up and smack out the spent case with my cleaning rod and some encouragement from a mallet. I'd like this to stop, and I suspect cosmoline in the chamber is the source of my issue. Can I just pour paint thinner into the barrel without worries or is this retarded?

>shoot nugget
>nugget doesnt eject spent case
>pour paint thinner to remove cosmoline?

Using russian surp, Bulgarian surp, tula, wolf, and ppu. Wont vinegar damage the wood? Also WD-40 then soap?
Sell it
On a Mosin?
Nah, ain’t worth rebarreling
Get brass ammo, neck size only and shoot reloads
No I don't sell my girls thank you.

Neck size for reloading them? Like buying a different die set or just using the hand loader to reload and crimping without resetting size?
fuckin bump cause I need answers too

Torture does work, but only when you know the victim has the information you want and that information is easily verifiable. Like say you're a money collector for the hells angels and you want to get the unfortunate loan recipient to sign over his car to help square up the loan, snap off enough fingers and he's going to sign. People who say torture doesn't work are looking at situations where a hammer is used in place of a scalpel and coming to the conclusion that hammers don't work.

I know what you are trying to say, but I'd note that your example is just a way to get nothing and go to jail.

A title signed under duress is worthless paper, and worse, it's physical evidence that incriminates whoever else put a name on that title. The broken fingers are also pretty solid evidence.

So you've created the world's easiest case for aggravated assault and extortion. Enjoy spending a dime as a guest of the state.
Most of the dweebs that go and take loans from guys like that are usually in position where going to the cops isn't an option

>Help police I took a huge loan from X to buy coke to sell and he kicked my ass and robbed me after I snorted it all.

People like that go to the cops all the time and you will absoloutly end up in jail for torturing them, their car returned and a likely heavy judgement on you that means for the rest of your life 40 cents of every dollar you make goes to them like an ex-wife.

Absurd criminal schemes are like half of what cops deal with. Again, your example wouldn't acutely send your coke-head to jail. You can tell a cop "hey, thirty seconds ago I ripped a huge line of coke. I'm currently high on cocaine." They can search you for drugs (that would count as probable cause) but if you aren't carrying any more then they don't have you for a crime.

Is getting caught with prostitutes enough to put you out of the air force?

Any time you purchase an illegal good, there's a risk you will be robbed or killed, but short of writing your state legislator to legalize prostitution, there's nothing you can do about it.

They're not going to know. I've been a John for years, and I've never been caught.
>Is getting caught with prostitutes enough to put you out of the air force?

Should be especially for an Officer.

This but unironically.

Leather boomers go and stay go
no matter what you do your going to end up with a box of hundreds of dollars of holsters you used once than never again in the search for the right one.
cheap holsters are all shit
Can confirm.
o yeah all those shitty holsters are an important part of the learning experience cause they teach you what you want and dont want in a holster. experiencing it is completely different thing from some guy telling you to buy x even if you listen to him and hes right you dont get that same appreciation for something that just fits unless youve suffered before hand.

hey /k/ i wanted to ask a question and maybe start a discussion
ive been thinking
ive been depressed for quite a while now and recently ive been convinced that its not just depression
that something else is wrong, maybe something diagnosable
most people would recommend seeing a psychiatrist but something else occurred to me
in the past year since ive gotten into firearms i have bought numerous guns and they are now very important to me
giving them up is off the table

theres all this talk about how mental health should apply to gun laws
and my state passed red flag laws in 2017
and on 4473s theres that question about being a mental defective
anyways, in your opinion
how would me seeking treatment affect my ability to purchase guns
and god forbid, how might this be used to try and remove my guns from me
even if theres no current law they could use to screw me

That's sort of fair. They still suck at it and have yet to convince the world on anything other than "PLEASE BOMB ME OR I WILL RAPE YOUR WIFE BECAUSE ALLAH".

Well what they’re demonstrating is that world opinion has no power over them (something even the Nazis had a modicum of concern for) That we may curse them or praise them and it makes no difference. And that’s it’s so hard to beat them in the long run.
You could also blare that from subwoofers and yeet the dudes who try and raid your house. That'd be cool.

Not caring what your enemy thinks of you: fine.
Not caring to the point everyone is slaughtering you and you still insist on being shitty fighters: really fucking retarded.
I feel that, I've been depressed/occasionally suicidal for over a decade. Been on meds and seen various psychs and therapists that whole time, only the most recent guy has been able to provide any help. I also joined a Men's group that does great work helping dudes out who are struggling with issues, but even that has its limits. I try to work out 2-3 times a week and I've started dieting, but even with all of the above I still can't seem to keep the depression down. I seriously hope its not chronic, but its getting on my nerves. What absolutely pisses me off though is that I live in Illinois and when I applied for my FOID, I learned that any stay at an in-patient ward is reported to the Illinois State Police and it bars you from getting a card. You have to wait 5 years and get a sign-off from a mental health professional to even try to get a FOID again. My current therapist is great but he's not huge on guns, so I'm having to go through professionals that do specialize in getting FOID rights back, but appointments run up from $500-1000. Fuck this state, can't wait to move. To any Illinoisfags in this thread, AVOID IN-PATIENT IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. You will get assfucked.
had to look that up
glad my state doesnt have that gay shit
sorry you're having to deal with that anon

Whats the best way to fit glasses on an MC-1 gas mask, I've been thinking of cutting my old glasses in half and clamping them around the rims of the lense like clip on sunglasses for prescription glasses, do you have any suggestions of what I should do?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Do you WANT to see out of it is the better question
I would recommend contact lenses
I have MC-1 MUA SzM41M and MP 4
And couldn't make it work with any of them
Get morpheus glasses
Get some prescription lenses made for them if you're willing to pony up some dough. I know somebody who has a prescription diving mask. I don't see a reason you couldn't get lenses cut for a gas mask too.

I need to stop almost getting arrested for shooting on state land. What are some strats for finding cheap range land?

Other way around; the head isn't enough, you have to leave the genitals attached to the carcass.
Oh, gotcha.

Yeah, you just need to make room in the fridge for 2-4 days. It's doable. Work on cleaning out some space before you go hunting.
Do it yourself for free
>idiots hunting and eating deer without having the meat checked first by professionals
If you can’t tell meat is bad while processing an animal you don’t need to be hunting

I'm going to buy an Ender Creality 3 so I can print the Glock 17 frame by Ivan and build a complete Glock 17. I've never done anything 3D printing related but I'm determined to learn how to do this. The 3D gun printing scene is fascinating and seems to gain more steam every month.

Posted up my Inglis Chinese contract Hi-power (slide/barrel match, but not to the frame - also with the Chinese repro wooden stock, and two chinese characters on the slide indicating "official pistol") for sale/trade some time ago; I've got a guy offering me a Romanian AES-10B RPK, or a JBI Armory East German AK kit build.

The AES-10B is the one with the correct RPK bipod, not the PKM one that Century substituted on. Looks to be in great shape.

The JBI Armory build looks to be quite nice, engraved with the correct selector markings and extra notch, but has a Green Mountain chrome lined barrel and Nodak receiver. Dust cover is also mismatched.

Thoughts? I have about $1300 or so in the Inglis. My heart says that I should trade for the East German AK (I like the standard AKs more than the rather long and heavy RPK), but my head says that I should trade for the AES-10B, as it's got an original Romanian combloc receiver and barrel despite its rather rough finsh. Seller says that he can throw in a Russian stock set for the AES-10B for the right deal.
I always pass on mismatched guns and kits.
I have a softspot for RPKs though.
I'd go with the DDR AK, its more uniquerer

Yep. Got it with three magazines for $375 from some old dude. Have wanted one for years but had never even seen one in the flesh. I knew I was already practically stealing the thing so I didn't try and Jew him down on the price any. Weighs over three pounds empty. Even full house 10MM loads are pretty tame out of it compared to my Javelina 10MM or Glock 40.
