This 4chan pass was the 2nd thing I bought with my first ever paycheck, but recently the site removed the option to pay for it with paypal or credit cards, and now I must have a crypto wallet to pay for it.

I've never done this before, and I wish to open a bitcoin wallet in order to pay for it.

Can you guys help me out? How do you open one? How did you folks do it?

Related to the Zastava, is this Norinco Model 213, which just the same is a Tokarev clone with a manual safety and chambered in 9mm Luger, made for commercial export.
In the US these aren't super common, because Norinco got themselves v& and b& in the 90s, but I think you can still get them in Canada, and they were pretty popular with black gun owners in South Africa, as they were a good and affordable pistol, which was commonly available in a package deal.

You'd fill out the basic paperwork for a firearms license, the gunshop owner would walk you through the qualification process, and you'd get a kit with a safe and a bag of cement so you could satisfy South African legal storage requirements.
Since a lot of poor people in South Africa lived (and probably still live in) houses with dirt floors, if outright not mud huts, this package deal would allow these people to lay down a small concrete foundation in their house and to bolt down the safe to it, to legally store their firearm (they don't allow you to just keep a gun in a drawer or a loose free-standing safe).
Given how dangerous South Africa was, and still is, these package deals must have been a blessing.

This stupid mutt chewed up my power cable.
The Krag J├Ârgensen was adopted by the US military as its new military rifle around 1892, and about 10 years later they decided it wasn't really cutting it, and it was surplussed.
Initially, it was though .30-40 Krag could be loaded hotter, but the single lug lockup of the Krag wasn't really strong enough for the increased pressures they wanted, so new trials were held.

Once the new rifle had been adopted (the Springfield 1903), the Krag rifles, all the spare parts, and the .30-40 ammunition stockpiles, were all surplussed.
Suddenly, there's this bolt-action repeating rifle on market, made for smokeless powder centerfire cartridges, and it's all quite affordable, far cheaper than brand new commercial bolt-action sporters, thus a cottage industry springs up.
Gunsmiths would buy surplus Krag rifles (or just actions, if even barreled) for cheap, then build sporters out of them, sporters which were usually pretty good, and still far cheaper than brand new commercial ones. Some companies would settle for chopping down the front of the stock and calling it a day (pic related), selling them like that, but a lot of individual smiths and small outfits would put in proper effort, even Springfield themselves, who previously were making them for the army, would use spare parts and rifles to build into sporters to get rid of their old stock.

To me, the Krag's history on the US civilian market is much more interesting and rich than its history as US military rifle. It was very affordable, and was a very good rifle for hunting all sorts of medium and medium-large game, .30-40 Krag may not have been comparable to 7.92x57mm Mauser or .30-06 Springfield in terms of sheer power, but it's no slouch either, the action is quite easy to work rapidly, and reloading it isn't too slow either, where you can plain just drop loose cartridges in through the magazine door and close it, and you're good to go. Very appealing for casual shooting if anything, even if not quite soldier proof.

Consider that in the early 1900s, lots of people were still rocking blackpowder, just because that's what they had been using for all this time, and it could be pretty cheap.

Now comes this bolt action rifle, it's not brand new but it's still somewhat modern, not used too hard, the rifle is cheap to buy, and the smokeless ammunition is as well, hell, it doesn't require nearly as much cleaning, and makes far less smoke, while putting out a (at the time) small .30 caliber projectile at some pretty high speeds, with light recoil.
It's a near unbeatable deal.

To explain this difference further, there's some inherent practical limitations on blackpowder which really limits what it's suitable for.

First of all, blackpowder burns quite dirty, it leaves quite a lot of carbon residue with every shot, for a musket this is ok, for a revolver or manual repeater this is acceptable, but for a self-loading action, this is an absolute dead end, it fouls so fast that you'd be lucky to get through a few dozen shots without a malfunction, and assuming that you do, you still inevitably reach the point where it gets so dirty that it just won't cycle by its own power anymore.

Second is that blackpowder is just blackpowder, there really isn't a stronger blackpowder or a weaker blackpowder, it's one kind of substance, if you want more power, you need more volume.
For example, the .45-70 Government was the rifle cartridge of choice for the US military once upon a time, .45 is the caliber, 70 is the number of grains of black powder.
If you wanted to put more power behind a .45 caliber projectile, you would need a larger case to fit a larger volume of blackpowder, thus the .45-90, and the .45-120, for 90gr and 120gr of blackpowder respectively.

Third, there's just an upper limit to how much velocity you can get from blackpowder, even if you use a small and lightweight projectile, adding more and more powder really isn't going to make it go much faster, your returns diminish, thus, to really get good power, you would need a larger and heavier projectile backed with a large enough load of blackpowder to send it flying at a good speed.
This is why military muskets were usually of bore diameters of like .68 caliber, .75 caliber, and even larger, just shooting a lead bullet the size of a pinball, you had one shot and you had to make it count, because reloading is a project, but even with repeating cartridge rifles, people were still going with .40 caliber, .45 caliber, .50 caliber, .57 caliber, etc, because it just had to be big.
