Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.

Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.

/k/ is a board devoted to weapons and military equipment.

Discussions about politics or current events belong on /pol/.

Do not post threads about gun control. They belong on /pol/.

Troll threads will be deleted, and those posting troll posts will be banned.

Where do I start learning about guns if I want to eventually own one? (I am thinking about a handgun for self defense)

Just ask questions on /k/. Pretty much everyone that posts on here has served in the seals or delta force. Everyone is very knowledgeable.
go to a gun store and tell them you want a glock 19 and an ar15, spend however much you feel comfortable spending. you now have the minmax loadout
Just buy an M&P. Whichever one suits you best, but no calibre smaller than .380. Then get a kydex holster for it and some spare mags.

It’s the cheapest handgun that’s actually good (both in looks and durability).

Second order of business is getting your weapons carry license so you can actually legally take it somewhere other than home or your car.

You’ll learn about it by trying to figure out how to use it at the range. Just go to the range and you’ll figure it out. Not rocket science.
Pawn shop/ gun store
Ask for a "38 revolver".

They will show you a few and then you ask them where you can take a safety course to learn and become competent with it.

Ask to buy some bullets too. More than a box. Like 3 or 4 different boxes. Take what they recomend you.

Do not come back here untill you have developed some deeply entrenched opinnions about guns and want to fight people on the internet about them

I too like to bundle my disappointments into a single dookie bag.
>I mean, people still buy .32 and .380 anon.
alright, i'll bite. i own a gun chambered in .380, but it's my micro gun i carry for work. realistically if SHTF, the most common rounds you're going to find for handguns is .22, 9mm, .45, and .40, in that order. you'll never really see .380, 38, 32, 357, 50, or 10mm. these are far less common rounds, and when ammo starts to get more scarce than it was in 2020, you're not going to see the less common rounds compared to the most common rounds when you're looting corpses. and assuming you do find less common rounds, would you have a gun that is chambered in it? of course not, that'd be absurd in survival mode.
>if SHTF, the most common rounds you're going to find for handguns is .22, 9mm, .45, and .40, in that order
Don't know if you noticed but that's pretty much the order in which they disappear off shelves when there's a goddamn election anon, and if you're looting ammo off bodies in an extreme LARP situation then you can also take the gun you know.
There'd be more 9mm if brass, copper, and powder weren't being wasted on some new flop.
Like 327 fed, it needs to be marketed in slimmer guns. Not just for adding 1 or 2 rounds in existing models. It's criminal that there isn't yet an ultra slim, 327, 5 shot revolver. That might be even more true for 30 super which should be able to get very slim. A 3/4 inch wide pistol with 9mm power will sell. I'm not sure squeezing 2 more rounds in your shield will.

Why do I feel there are less and less people who are actually intrested in firearms on /k/ and are simply using them as a proxy to talk about politics.

No, newfags who don't lurk ruining it for everyone else have what destroyed every board.
>different people different opinions
Can't be that different when they're all spouting the exact same rhetoric from /pol/.
Maybe our ideas of peace and relaxation arent aligned. For me loud things are fun, but they make me anxious. If I wanted peace then I would want something quiet.

>Do I violently molest the target afterwards or?
>as if SHOOTING the target isnt inherently commiting violence to the target
30 exact threads pop up about it because the jannies are trannies. You're "mad" about the anti jannie behavior that has subsequently resulted because /k/ talks about guns and gun ownership is a radical political act to authoritarians. Before muh stickie there would only be one or two active threads about an event that will cause new gun control to be proposed. Now there are 30 versions of 5 threads created in real time because mods actively try to delete them. The board becomes "unusable" because of the jannies, not "politics" because they don't want people to learn what is happening and organize the inevitable resistance. They've never succeeded, yet they do it for free.

Both the M240b theory and the house of saud assassination attempt theories came from /k/ threads posted despite the active shoah'ing of "political" threads at the time. Anons just posted more. Jannies can't ban the entire board population, which is what would be required when these events happen.
>working on his marksmanship isn't a relaxing experience
If doing something that requires controlled breathing and precise movements doesn't relax you you might just be retarded
Even disregarding your perspective in terms of wanting /k/'s pov, it's more so that certain topics belong to certain boards because they are inherently impacted. Am I supposed to stick to /pol/ if tomorrow all camping was banned? FUCK NO I STICK TO /out BECAUSE THATR IS THE CAMPING BOARD

An old S-75 soviet missile shot down the f-117. After that incident, who evolved more? the stealth in F-22/35 and b-2 or the SAM family missiles S-300/400/500?

>e, these data points show significant improvement over the f-22

How the fuck did you interpret that? The 2D graph clearly shows the F-22 is superior in frontal aspect and reflects less from the sides.

The only thing that looks to be an improvement on the F-35 is the reflection from the rear aspect, but one can hardly consider that an improvement when you factor in the inferior dynamics of the F-35.

I own a gunsmithing and custom shop. We do everything from cerakote and laser engraving to custom parts machining.

It wasn’t super profitable starting out but it’s finally at the point where we have a solid reputation and enough regular customers that it’s become quite successful. Plus I genuinely love just about everything to do with the job and being self employed.

My advice to anyone looking to do well in life without a rich family or whatever would be trades. Most of our highest end custom work and builds are purchased by trade chads. Also anyone I’ve hired has trade background that some how translates over to the work we do, for example the guy that does all our cerakote was a tile and flooring dude for years. The attention to detail that line of work gave him made him amazing at laying out stencils and patterns while having a good eye for colors and blending to the point where I don’t even touch a paint gun anymore because he’s so much better than me at it.

We also sub-contract out a lot of our one-off custom parts stuff to a fabricator that can work magic with a tig welder because it’s all he does so he’s far more talented at it than I am. I just can’t afford to have someone with a skill level like that working for me full time.

lmao they already cut the funding to that. It also paled in comparison to to the batshit crazy ideas during FCS. IVAS is pretty much just an iPhone with ATAK app but in HUD form. FCS was straight up Halo tier shit.

That’s an airsoft gun

Is this the future of armored helmets?

>waste thousands of dollars to equip one soldier with one helmet
no, infantry is obsolete and the government isn't going to do that
Isn't the new IVAS system like $40k a piece? The government is legitimately already doing what you're suggesting they won't do.
I love paying taxes.
the glasses instead of a bar visor obscures & tunnels your vison, not to mention how likely that would instantly fog up

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Having the lenses up against the eyes is dependent on the adjustability of the helmet. However, adjustability adds to costs and complexity, making the helm less suitable for mass production. Perhaps suitable for a small team but for million man armies? Out of the question. Likewise, the internal fans add more complexity and cost. In addition there's now a cost for batteries that you can't ignore.

And then we consider the likelihood of being shot in the face or eye and the usefulness of the helm is buried by the expense. It might work for an overfunded SWAT team but not for an army.

Looking to buy my first quality DI AR. I own a poverty pony but obviously want something better. Been thinking of buying a DDM4V7. Advice on mods, purchasing decisions, or even other manufacturers of similar quality?
19 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
god i hate front heavy ars
Yeah, DD4V7 is my favorite.
KAC stands for kike’s ass crack
I would get this upper. Whatever lower you want from DD is fine. I like their M4A1 style but I wanted this upper instead. That's probably how I would roll...

I would either get the following;
DD M4A1 + MK12 Upper
DDM4V9 + M4A1 FSP Upper [My #1 Pick]

This would give me the most flexibility in switching around for the longer-range v/ more close-ranged shooting.

The problem with mixing manufacturers is that they all create their own specs to some degree that are meant to be used in conjunction with their parts.
If i was building a KAC, I'd use all KAC parts save for something like a trigger, buffer etc.

This is why you need to use a rifle to repulse home invaders, regardless of who their employer is. Shoot enough of them until they decide they'd rather do something else.

Okay, half a mil per gun, no haggling, I know what I got.
Ok, this doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Just taxidermy it in a running position and attach a speaker to it that plays barking sounds.

I took my 10 year old shooting for her first time with her .22 rifle. Pic related is 15 shots from 10 yards iron sights. I think she did pretty darn good. I’m a damn proud dad.

It's a hell of a tough time, but it's a lot easier to feed only two mouths with my shitty job. I miss my ex, I really do, but she willingly abandoned me and our daughter and I hate her for that.
I know man, im barely scrapping by this month and I dont even have all my bills paid yet.
But you have my respect for holding out. Keep it up man, dont despair, when shes older and successful she will be grateful to you and be there in your time of need.
