Brit bong here
Went to merrica a month ago, shot my first gun.
>9mm or the.45?
>took the 9mm
>"I thought you brits were real men"
The fuck did I do wrong?
Careful shooting .45
Shoot too much, or don't have proper technique, and you'll get the ol "45 elbow".
Pic related. Shot too much .45.
He was just giving you a hard time, don't take it personally.
You should have shot both though, but I'm glad you got to shoot.
How'd you like it?
Calm down, I'm pretty sure he was just busting his chaps because he was obviously not from the US.
Feels like power in your hands. I missed my first 5 shots, but got the hang of it after.
I kind of wanted to shoot a living being to see how I felt. Or go full operator on some bloods and crips. Another experience for another day.
>coming atchu Tyrone
My LGS and Range will say that stuff but they get that it's a joke. Who doesn't love shooting .45, especially a 1911. But I'm pretty sure every single employee carries some sort of polymer 9mm.
I spend too much time in there..
Depends on the composition and size of the firearm. Heavier soaks up more recoil (F=ma). How the weight is distributed matters too.
.45 isn't as high velocity as 9mm either, and has a softer recoil impulse. 9mm is "snappier"
What did you shoot? My stainless steel 1911 feels like I'm shooting lol9mm. I can feel a huge difference between my Glock 19 and my buddy's Glock 30.
I do really want a Glock 30 now though.
Shoot a .303 Enfield next time, then you will be a true English Gentleman
>Keep those colonials in check, leftenent.
that was the first thing that came to my mind
my first time shooting pistols all the .22 lr guns were jammed so I went strait to 9mm
then tried .45 apc and an 1851 Navy revolver
strange as it sounds the .45 seemed to have the least recoil
Yea probably best not to go out and smoke Homie and his homies unless you can at least kind of make it seem like you HAD to for safety reasons.
Could always get buck and not swing, but I wouldn't recommend it.
I've shot both as well and had a full sized .40 as my first handgun, can handle them just fine. Was genuinely surprised by how much a little rental .380 subcompact kicked though (not sure what make and model, my buddy just rented it to let his gf try it out before he bought her a piece and told me to try a mag through it)
You know, one day I'm going to add a couple of Colonial Exploitation guns to my armory so that when I finally get to let a britbong buddy shoot, he'll get to shoot what his grandfathers and great grandfathers intended him to shoot; whether it was pounding those Zulus back into civilized behavior or clearing up that little misunderstanding in France.
He insulted you for not wanting to fuck John Moses Browning
>actually wanting to kill man, for the "feel"
Actual mental disease, go back to your shitty little island and play airsoft you faggot.
But you aren't an actual Brit bong, this is a cleverly not so cleverly disguised 9mm vs 45 meme thread.
So go get in your mommy's medicine cabinet and play IRL candy crush saga
Nope. It's 2016. We should be passed caliber wars threads, even disguised ones.
So consider going diving for pearls in the YMCA swimming pool and not coming back up till you find one.
