These are my 3 pistols. i also got a .22lr Hämmerli Xesse.

next is something in .45acp
what should i get it will mainly be for competition shooting and range queen.

Not saying they are or are not, but I’ll just point out that many camera lenses can exhibit distortions of varying kinds that is worse the further from the center that you look; test charts to compare lenses to one another, calibrate them use patterns of straight lines across the frame for this purpose. I’d be checking a few other pictures before deciding their machining is good, bad or indifferent based on one picture with possible misshaped lines in a corner.

I'd try both in person if you can, because the M&P is no slouch, with what is ostensibly a better stock trigger. The toblerone slide isn't for everyone.

Cohen fucked their reputation by driving for massive product and business growth at inadvisable speed, and damaged both QC and their reputation. Truth be told, it's probably nowhere near as bad as what some people fear, but psychology and faith buys into any purchasing decision, especially those involving an item that you may trust your life with.

Older US-made Sigs of the P22X line are still fine handguns; German and W. German made P22X are still very good handguns. Swiss Sig P220 and P210/49s are still excellent handguns. But to the morass of meme-driven rather than fact-driven 4chan users, such nuance is a little tricky to grasp.

Yeah pretty much on the nose and we're only two guns in. Guess I'll spare the trouble and just keep window shopping until something catches my eye. That's how I chose my Rami after all
The problem I have is I'm looking for something that must be hammer fired, metal framed, full size, doublestacked, without any rails while still fitting my aesthetics AND staying affordable (aftermarket wood grips a HUGE plus). Seemingly everything out there is polymer this, tacticool that, or a couple grand if not

Glock 26 a good camping gun? Something I can comfortably carry while hiking and keep in a tent or my RV incase a hoodlem attacks is what i'm looking for. 9mm is ok in my case because I live in SC where the biggest animals that could be a threat are bobcats, black bears, and backwoods cannibals. Plus I want this is a range gun so the price of 9mm is a must. Finger fucked a gen 4 one today as well as a g19 and was astounded how comfortable Glock fit in my small hands. I would likely get a gen 5 g26 with oem night sights. Also handled a p320 compact. It was kinda nice too, just bigger.

To me it soesn't seem so judging to the results of the MAC's gauntlet tests. He presses guns sidelong into sand, dirt and mud, and the majority of failures are due to debris either in the hammer preventing firing or in the slide-barrel lockup preventing the gun from going in to battery (a condition in which the gun's safeties don't allow it to fire). There have been one of two frame-borne failures where triggers didn't reset or similar, but I always attributed that to debris getting in through the trigger hole rather than the sides of the frame.

>first time on /k/

So last night I heard screams outside my apartment. I went outside and ran down to where I heard the screams and found a woman (who lives in my building) covered in blood. Apparently her boyfriend got fucked up and came home and started beating the shit out of her.

I walked her back to a safe area and her brother came and picked her up. As I was walking home her boyfriend had apparently saw me and ran up on me trying to start a fight. I mostly just played dumb and acted like I had no idea about anything he was involved with. He was really covered in blood, much worse than she was. Looked like he punched glass and it shattered all over him (he had his dog with him, who was also covered in blood).

I defused it and walked away. Police came, he got arrested and after I looked him up, found out he has an extensive background of car thefts, battery, burglary, armed robbery and more.

Now physically I have no issues. I'm an average weight and have an average build, but I've done several years worth of judo, krav maga, and others and feel I could hold my own against almost any opponent who doesn't have a background in martial arts.

But what worries me is that this guy knows were I live because we've lived in the same building for a while. I have a son and wife. If he had a gun of any kind and came to my apartment I'd be fucked. This is obviously paranoia, but this is justified as it could be any type of intruder (not just him) and I'd be defenseless aside from some knives and a baseball bat.

Which leads me here. Looking at handguns for self defense. I'd consider a shotgun but I live in a small apartment and feel firing it would be too risky with thin drywall and every room backing into another (if my son was in the next room, for example).

I had a 22 a while back but sold it when I was desperate for some cash. I feel like a 22 has relatively low stopping power anyway. I don't CC, so size isn't an issue.
>>
>>39922841
Stopping power doesn't exist, get a 9mm with large capacity such as a beretta M9 with hollow points, also if you hit your intended target a 12 gauge won't overpenetrate
>>
>>39922841
Unfortunately handgun rounds will penetrate through dry wall just as bad as 00 buck. In a small apartment you’ll get very little spread anyway, so unless you just flat out miss I’d get a mossman 500 and load it with 00 buck or federal flite control 1 buck. Much easier to hit way your aiming at and WAY better effect on target
>>
>>39922882
Everything will penetrate dry wall if you miss, marksmanship is more important than "What If?" scenarios.
>>
>>39922866
I’d say ability to incapacitate or “stopping power” does exist, but across the major handgun calibers this ability is pretty limited and doesn’t vary much from caliber to caliber. A 12 gauge most definitely has stopping power
>>
>>39922891
That’s basically what I said
Also it’s much easier to make accurate shots with a 18” barrel shotgun or rifle than a pistol so marksmanship is accounted for
>>
>>39922882
Also keep in mind a shotgun is very hard to maneuver in a small apartment.
>>
>>39922892
That's too vague and can be misleading, I'd rather know of terminal ballistics although incapacitation power is more correct
>>39922905
He said he only owned a .22, I doubt a shotgun will be easy for him to handle

>>39918708
Police surplus, is 300.00ish a decent price for M&P/Glock copsurp?

It would be baby's first pistol. I just want a versatile handgun that I can throw a decent trigger on and customize a bit.
>>
>>39922866
Sorry I don't know much about guns. I just mean the ability to take someone down or disable on impact. I once watched a store get robbed and the clerk put 6 22 bullets into the guy and he was still on his feet fighting back. Eventually bled out but still could have killed the clerk in the meantime. Are you saying regardless of handgun caliber the differences aren't significant?

>>39922882
I think a shotgun would be difficult to maneuver, and the way my apartment is set up, unless I'm shooting toward an exterior wall, all other options point at our bedrooms. I just wouldn't want to risk the spread of a shotgun hitting something.
>>
>>39922928
It’s really not that difficult. Besides trying to clear rooms is usually a bad idea. Grab your kids and hole up in your bedroom
>>39922929
It’s actually not too vague, saying stopping power doesn’t exist is though. Not everyone needs a detailed explanation of ballistics
>>
How much does it usually cost to ship a handgun? I’m going to be listing some for sale but I’m hesitant about listing them online because I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg to ship.
>>
>>39923045
If it really is that much of a concern then get a 16” AR. Handguns really do suck at putting people down compared to rifles/shotguns. You can find poorfag ARs for not much more than a decent pistol.
Also a 16” AR isn’t THAT much longer than a fully extended drawn handgun anyway
>>
Anyone here carry an SP101? Is it worth carrying one over a single stack 9mm? I like the idea of getting one for carry but is five rounds of .38 +P or .357/six of .327 (undecided on what caliber I’d want) with slower reloads worth it over eight or nine rounds of 9mm? I don’t carry an additional mag so the slower reload part seems kind of moot simply because I wouldn’t be reloading anyway with my current carry gun.
>>
>>39923114
If it’s just gonna be 38 +p get a 3” LCR
Either way this post seems to be relevant:

>just get an AR its not that much longer than a handgun
Holy shit this is some bad advice. There are advantages of having either, but a pistol is nowhere as unwieldly as a 16” AR. Next you’re going to tell him to get one in a pistol caliber, right?
>>
>>39923506
>pistol caliber
Of course not. If you can’t maneuver a 16” carbine indoors you’re never going to make it
>>
>>39923506
Extend your arms and hold a pistol - the length will be similar (not the same but close) to shouldering a 16” rifle
This doesn’t apply to manlets though
>>
>>39923569
Whatever that means

>>39923580
>I hold the weapon outward at all times
How stupid are you? If you were to go with the AR, I expect a sling be mandatory so that you can pull kids/gf/wife/whatever aside and do stuff like open doors and drawers. And no matter what, the pistol is going to be the lighter weapon that can fit in tighter spaces, like under a bed, behind a door, or in a closet.
This question entirely depends on your living space. I don’t see why someone would choose the pistol over a rifle in most cases but then again I’ve never lived in such tight places where a pistol would be a better choice.

>>39926328
$50 is the low end $200 is the high end I suppose. I'd buy whatever's on sale as any non-fitted barrel should have near as makes no difference the same accuracy and the same potential for looseness or inaccuracy, especially if you're using an aftermarket slide. If a factory slide I suppose there could be a benefit to a vetted name brand like Gemtech, SilencerCo or Faxon but I really doubt it.

I'm speculating though, there are no brand accuracy/reliability tests I know of to reference. Aesthetics, features and value, imo, should be top priorities.

Also I have a Gemtech threaded barrel I can sell you if you want.

Do you obtain your firearms knowledge exclusively from reading about them online? Bringing obscure, (long) out-of-production handguns up when people ask about practical features is some serious deGrasse Tyson-tier autismo detail shitting.

You're thinking of the wrong HK striker fired pistol. The vp70 is very obtainable and available. It's under $600. That's how bad it is.

You might be thinking of the p7, a much newer HK striker fire. It's the squeeze cock thing that costs two arms and a leg.

With the trigger.
>>
>>39920934
Only weakness in the TriStar is the trigger return spring. If you dry fire tens of thousands of times, replace it for $4. Many parts like Springs are interchangeable with CZ75 parts. Cajun Gunworks has a specific section just for Canik55 Tri-Star. My L-120 trigger is just as good as my Shadow 2 after a $17 spring kit and a polishing job.
The Wishbone shaped trigger bar lifter spring is the only part that may ever need to be tweaked for best operation. CZ75 sights will swap. Trigger pin and Hammer pin diameter is different. Cajun has race trigger, disconnector, and trigger of the proper size for them. Grips will interchange. Barrels will NOT. Cajun has a replacement front barrel bushing to tighten lock up if necessary. If not likely to be needed.

I need some assistance in choosing. I've never owned a handgun and I live in Canada. I am 6'3 and have big hands and I think this could be a fun rabbit hole to go down. I fingerfucked a few guns at a local store and found the glock to fit my hands comfortably. The ones that stand out to me are the 19x the 17 and the 34. Obviously there is no need for conceal carry, as this is canada. I dont know anyone who is up here and into guns aside from a guy I go hunting with. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated :)
>>
>>39941613
Stay away from anything 19, you'll get a little funky extra barrel length. 17 is better. Also consider HK's offerings, they're either highly adaptable to hand size or just built for big hands from the get-go.
>>
>>39941613
Idk what your laws are like, but a lot of people are really into cz's. They're reasonably priced, feel fantastic in the hand, and have good aftermarket support too. I'd definitely recommend checking them out
>>
>>39941584
>he cant handle a firearm with a safety
If you have that little control over your fine motor skills and basic weapon handling skills under stress you really shouldn't be carrying a gun. You'll just end up NDing into yourself on the draw.
>>
>>39941613
>glocks stand out to you
Look harder, my friend
>>
>>39941638
>>39941661
Thanks for this, the 19x seems a little wonky how it uses some gen 4 parts and has some odd specifics to it. The guy at the store claims that his favorite go to is a cz75 but he still goes to his glock every once in a while. I like the glock because they're simple and reliable and not crazy expensive. Seems good for a first handgun.

>>39941743
Could you suggest a few things that you would recommend looking into?
>>
>>39941691
>he willing seeks out bad things on purpose so he can brag on the internet about it

>>
>>39941845

>>
>>39941845
>I like the glock because they're simple and reliable and not crazy expensive
There are a million guns like this. Look around more, watch videos
>>
>>39941911
>>39941933
Is it just not /k/ approved to go for a glock? What makes a handgun more exciting to you?
>>
>>39941865
>I too enjoy jamming bamboo under my fingernails
That's rich coming from the guy who puts up with a shit trigger 24/7 and acts like its a feature because he can't handle a manual safety
>>
>>39941960
Plenty of people here like them, but they're popular so a lot of us bash them.
The real reason a lot of us don't like them is because people think "I need to buy a gun, so I'm going to buy a glock" regardless of the fact that there are a multitude of other guns for the same price, or less, that have some better aspects to them.
Recoil impulse is a big one, I like the way cz's shoot because they feel so smooth. I also like having a DA/SA with decocker. Another is grip angle, a lot of people can't stand the way the glock feels in the hand. I don't fall in this group, I think my glocks feel just fine in my hands, but I will say I can think of 10 guns off the top of my head that feel better
Also glock triggers are fuck awful, which is a big deal
>>
>>39941960
Not really
Anybody can tell you now that most police only use glock because of the extremely low price of arming an entire department. They are cheaply made and their controls and lack of missing qualities (like mags that eject or good sights) indicate that. You can do better from the get go and buy something with more features and better ergonomics that has the same reliability as glock, and still end up paying less in the end.
>>
>>39941973
>shit trigger
Doesn't get much more shit than willingly having a "my trigger doesn't work right now" button.
>>
>>39942042
>lack of missing qualities

This is all really interesting things that I have to look into more. I'm just reading through the sticky at the top of the page, /k/ guide to handguns.

I guess I'm just feeling frustrated at my lack of experience and every time I walk into a gun store here (vancouver) most of the sales guys are just trying to upsell and pedal their own favorites on me. Its hard to tell what is good info not knowing how the thing actually shoots or what should stand out as a bad handgun, as to my eye they all look brand new and similar. I dont know if it's even possible to order a handgun here online
>>
>>39942047
>trigger that's godlike so long as you press the "on" button but doesn't move if you don't
>trigger that's shit no matter what you do
Seems it does.
>>
>>39942139
Of course this is assuming you actually understand how levers work. Understandably if you don't a safety can seem rather confounding. Certainly not for the mentally handicapped.
>>
>>39942100
Just so you know, most of us are also trying to peddle our own favorites to you. What I'd suggest doing is handling as many as you possibly can before purchase, and picking the one that's both comfortable and easy to manipulate.

Key things to look for:
•Can you comfortably reach all the controls? (Without breaking your grip)
•Are you comfortable with the firing mechanism? (Some people really want a safety and/or hammer, some don't.)
•Does pulling the trigger feel "right?" This doesn't necessarily require a lot of experience - even as a gun virgin I hated the mushy hinge trigger on the M&P.

Things to avoid:
•Shitty non-threaded barrel overhang; this is how Canadians get around the 4" minimum
•Literally just buying the cheapest option
•Likely whatever the guy behind the counter is trying too hard to push you - there's a non-zero chance he's getting a "rewards" program from his favorite brand.
•Things you can't find aftermarket you want for - no mags, no holsters, no deal.
>>
>>39940981
I see. I thought the same thing too until I looked into them. Just makes sense, old HK nobody has ever heard of, has to be fucking expensive right?

Probably the one exception to that rule.

Pushing turns the safety off, lifting puts it on. You should probably stick to the longest and heaviest DAO you can find though. Mouth breathers like you just can't handle something with a safety or typical striker fired trigger safely, and at least the long heavy pull on that will buy you more time until you inevitably shoot yourself or someone else on accident.

You flick it off on the draw stroke and as a part of your natural high and tight firing grip. Only a tactitard is concerned about a handguns ability to go off when you aren't touching it and it's sitting in the holster.

The very clear meaning of my post given the context is that only a tactitard is so concerned with momentary readiness that he actually cares that his gun isn't ready to go off even when not in use and holstered and acts like such is a meaningful fault. You've chosen to argue about the meaning of words using alternate interpretations of the word "ability" to try to shift this into a different argument. That is by definition arguing semantics.

Gun shops can take awhile to ship, or at least that's my experience. I suppose it's a longer process due to having to validate the FFL and whatnot. I know in the past, the 3 or so online gunshops I've shopped from took up to a week to ship out.

That and most 10mm loads will do better with a longer barrel. You honestly may get same or better performance with .40 in a similar gun.
>>
>>39950662
Off the shelf 10mm is already .40 S&W but 10-15% pricier. If you aren't buying at least Sig 10mm you're wasting your money on the cartridge.

My father has this Model 10 made in the 50s according to him. I also have several boxes of +p ammo and I don't feel like buying another. Will it be safe to use or should I not risk it?

Why?

unless you have a problem with your P365, It's a far wiser desicion to simply carry it with the 12 round magazine than to trade for a much more bulky USP compact for a single extra round.
The USP compact never really made all that much sense, and there's a reason the P2000 and P2000sk exist.

>The USP compact never really made all that much sense
Yes it did you retarded noguns. People fell in love with the Usp but found it too large for concealed carry. Leading to the compact. The p2000 is a soulless usp compact. The p2000sk is the redheaded stepchild of Hk seeing as the p30sk does everything better.
>>
>>39952264
you're right, anon. He should buy a P30sk instead of a USP compact. Problem solved.
the USP compact is obsolete.

Where mah 1911 gang at?
>>
>>39951250
It has better sights, less muzzle flip, and superior ergonomics. Walther has it on the trigger, though the 509’s is still very nice if a bit heavy

Do not use +p ammo on that gun

>>39953038
It's a (((modernized))) usp compact. It was made for zoomers who couldn't handle side controls and complained about their baby skin being hurt by the grip texture.

why not

The P2000 is a Compact with a usable rail. Even their guide rod assemblies are the exact same. There is no reason people should be buying the Compact besides CIA larping.

>The P2000 is a Compact with a usable rail
Called a Usp clamp. Streamlight and most other pistol lights/lasers are compatible with it.
>There is no reason people should be buying the Compact besides CIA larping
People buy glawks to larp as operators. People buy walthers to larp as nazis. People buy 1911s to larp as nam operators.
Also not to mention the Usp line has a ton more aftermarket than the p2000.

I want to buy a 1911, I shot a springfield 1911 TRP. This gun shot better than my HK p30sk. Is it worth $1500 or would the Range officer or Mil-spec be good also? this TRP felt really nice and shot smooth. I feel like if I dont shoot the Range Officer or Mil-Spec variants that It will feel underwhelming and ill regret it, but both of my local indoor ranges dont have any of those for rent. has anyone here any knowledge that can tell me more about this.
>>
>>39954378
if youre gonna spend 1500 on a 1911 get a dan wesson
>>
>>39954401
I wasnt going to. I was asking because I didnt want to spend $1500 for a handgun. I realistically only want to spend ~$1,000 ish at max.
>>
>>39954450
youre still in DW range. unless you cant pay more than 900 or less than 3000 for a 1911, get a DW
>>
>>39954487
I dont know about you, but I cant find a DW less than 1,300 pre tax.
>>
>>39954450
FWIW i got a DW VBOB for less than 1100 with maybe 50rnds through it. The lightly used market for DWs is really great and there are some surpr. Secondarily the dan wesson has some more budget orientated lines, namely the guardian and vigil. The vigil line can be had for right at 1000 new. I've owned quality straight production 1911s before, there's nothing wrong with them but when a basic bitch DW is only 200$ more i just can't personally justify going with a lesser product over what i'll spend on ammo for it in two months. The difference in fit, parts quality, and QC is pretty significant.

No clue how this one happened....

999 for blems, 1060 for normal ones. I've heard good things about blem models in general but with only a 60$ difference i wouldn't bother.
>>
>>39954596
was looking into getting it in 45 not 9mm.
>>
>>39954612
What? they come in 9 and .45. The cheapest full size .45 is going to be 1100 right now.
>>
>>39954674
yea i saw that after. the link put me at the bottom of the page where there was only 9mm
>>
Yep.

What do you guys think about the hk45? I'm fucking in love with it but I still have this nagging feeling that I need a USP, maybe its from metal gear and fucking r6. Am I crazy?

Looking for my first full size 9mm. Leaning towards G17 but sell me your opinions.

This is my everyday carry piece. The absence of trunnions makes it easy to conceal.

All steel construction, so it ain't light, but it shoots straight and goes bang with every trigger pull. When you run out of ammo you can swing the thing around like a mace.
>>
>>39955546
Can't go wrong with a G17, my Gen 3 is great but not a fan of the stock sights.
>>
>>39954045
I dont like the clamp, even though I know it works.
Idk why HK doesnt just change the USP rail already.
