who here sleeps with their ear pro on?
>put on big ass earmuffs
>head to pillow
>feels good mane
gonna hijack this thread. Instead of spending a few dollars at the range to rent a pair of earmuffs, whats the best pair I can buy for the money? I want whatever's cheapest that isnt going to fall apart on me.
Unfortunately I cant do plugs, they bother my ears.

Have three pillow cases but no pillow for one.
Not me, but my extremely jumpy friend (whose mannerisms are similar to Tim Roth's character in Four Rooms) that I go hiking with a lot

He's fun to hang out with, but I swear to god everything is straight out of a Rambo movie with that guy. And not First Blood either
im a military fag and my job requires constant hearing tests where i sit in a booth an they play these dim beeping sounds. i just ignore some of them and when the guy asks me about missing them i tell them its hard for me to concentrate with the ringing
> oh anon you have ringing in your ear? we need to document that
I unconsciously use trigger safety when holding power tools. Never even noticed until a coworker who also shoots pointed it out.
Hmm, I need to check one of these out. I have a Target body pillow in my daki but it's not long enough so I have to stuff another regular pillow in the bottom, and it makes it all lumpy and weird.
I do this shit all the time.

So, I'm not the only one that sleeps with a gun under their pillow, right?

I.e. See a little kid wearing a camo shirt from old Navy, "fuckin' faggot, is that even real milsurp? M81 is out dated as fuck, that won't even work in this area, lrn2multicam"
>freak the fuck out when anything medical happens
For instance, coworker cut his finger open today, immediately thought "I need my IFAK, an izzy will probably do the trick" when it just took a bandaid.
>general autism and sperging out
I do the same.
>he doesn't use a da/sa sig to do this
>not keeping loaded gun on night stand
i see no benefit of having a conditoin 3 gun under your pillow vs. a condition 1 gun on the table
>i can get to my gun faster
having it loaded nearby takes less time to grab than racking it
plus you dont have to sleep with a gun digging into your head
Usually it's a Glock, hence why the chamber is empty.
It wouldn't be that bad of an idea to try with a revolver I guess, since the DA trigger pull is like 10 fucking pounds.
I guess that's probably a better option
>You don't have to sleep with a gun digging into your head
>Not taking comfort in that fact that the slightly lumpy object under your head is a handgun
Not very long
If you aren't already showing any of the symptoms ITT and don't have an empty void inside that can only be filled with firearms, you probably still have time to get out of the hobby alive and sane.
If you sleep with a unloaded/loaded handgun under your pillow then you're just a special kind of fucking idiot. Nightstands nigga.
There's a bunch of /k/ related shit I do that I could post so I'll go with the ones that people notice.
>extremely patient with people in public (because I'm carrying a gun)
>always lock my car, if my friends go to my car I grill them on locking it
>anytime someone is talking about guns I'll throw in minor opinions or corrections if it's something that could actually threaten someone's life, usually manage to not trip my power level
>always wearing boots, luckily I'm in punk bands so people think I'm just wearing the outfit
>constantly looking around
>never sit with my back to the entrance of any place I'm in
>always "that guy" that has the shit people need, lights, tools, first aid shit, etc.
Nothing too bad I guess.
>im in punk bands
thats a funny way of saying you have no musical talent
Of course not, if I had musical talent I would play in progressive rock bands with 15 minute instrumentals about chasing galactic dragons through the mountains of Hadioshiojj instead of doing cocaine off of toilets.
youre goddamn right you would be
Especially on a car with on that is kinda tactile and makes a really nice click on its way down.
>always lock the car
Holy shit are there people that do not lock their car? I live in the fucking suburbs of southern California around thousands of white people and have never once thought it was okay to leave my car (or house) unlocked.
>always wear boots
Same, they're hiking boots, though and I work in a warehouse so no one gives a shit.
I have at least one gun in nearly every room in my house. I have no kids, but my girlfriend thinks i'm a paranoid schizo, I just keep reassuring her that things will be fine if they show up, and that I will let her out of the basement eventually.
What's next? Animals As Leaders?
On the real though, Lyfson is one of my main influences for guitar. His work on Hemispheres is, in my opinion, his absolute finest.
To keep this post /k/ related, I also only walk my dog with my left hand.
People who don't keep valuable shit in their cars don't. I'm just super anal about it and will double check it to make sure it's locked when I walk past it if I'm out. I usually have a rifle in the trunk or a handgun in the center console and I live in a city with a high rate of firearms theft.
I also have crazy manners and my friends will rib me about it sometimes.
>won't just walk in your house, even if I know you
>wash my shit when I use your plates and whatnot
>pick up the beer cans before I leave
I'm always hearing "yes I locked your car, nobody is going to steal your shit god damn andrew" but it's probably just because with what I do my friends and I are constantly in and out of our cars so each time they take my keys I remind them to lock it and when I get my keys back I ask if they remembered to lock it.
im only joshing, i dont care much for punk but i can appreciate the punk ideal and aesthetic even if it isnt as cerebral as progressive rock/metal
any way to make it /k/ related;
>be left handed master race
>can keep my gun in the storage compartment in the driver side door when i drive
>can now execute the perfect driveby with my hipoint when driving down martin luther king jr boulevard
I know you're kidding, I'm also kidding.
>mlk jr blvd
Whenever I have to go to Atlanta or Jacksonville, some of the places I have to go are near their respective MLK blvds. That's when I bring the extendos.
Am I an edgy faggot for wearing a diving knife on my leg under my jeans?
My state's laws doesn't have any restrictions on knifes, but guns, like many other places, aren't legally allowed to be brought in certain stores. So I thought the next best thing would be a knife.
>work near the ghetto
>only 3 murders this year
>carry a chopper with an extendo and barrel
>pic related its my uzi
but in all seriousness i do carry a hipoint .45 in my car when i go to work because i want to shoot the nigger 9 times with .45 if it decides to rob me
>tfw only 23 but already have 4/10 tinnitus
The shitty thing is I've had it since before I started shooting regularly, I think I got it being around aircraft without earpro as a kid since I got to see a lot with my dad working with Army aviation. I double up no matter what I shoot tho to try and protect my hearing from any further preventable damage.
keeping my finger off the trigger of any vaguely gun-like thing I hold
reaching for a CC when a car backfires near me or something makes a nigger-related noise; even if I'm not actually carrying
ask who's knocking before I open the door, and stand clear of the line of fire when I do it
if someone I know doesn't reply, they just have to stand outside like a fool
I carry a medi-kit with trauma shears and seuchering needles and shit, as well as a litre of water, special self adhering rubber tape, various other useful things.
my co-workers joke my bag is like a camping store, I ask when was the last time they needed one of the hundred receipts or empty drink bottles in theirs
use millitary nomenclature out of context like an autist
Assuredness in one's ability just because one has a gun doesn't guarantee anything else either. I bet there are more violent kills on earth with knifes against guns then there are guns against knifes.
That's because guns are usually used justly, at least in the United States. Knifes too, but probably not fighting knifes.
If that is somehow true then you likely have some sort of mental problem.
I don't see a point in handicapping yourself with less rounds, slower rounds and higher recoil in a self defense situation.
Since you responded so quickly, yeah it would. They would be more likely to be focused on the cashier.
If they were focused on me, then why am I aimlessly wandering in a store? I wish I could shitpost that hard.
Jesus, let me walk you through this.
What I am saying is that if you are going to go through the fucking trouble of being armed for some imaginary scenario where you'll be the big fucking hero who leaps and bounds just in time to somehow make it to the robber to stab him in the neck, you should be armed with the best possible weapon. The best possible weapon is not a knife.
If you're so paranoid that you're going through the trouble of trying to prepare for such an unrealistic and improbable scenario, why in the fuck are you going to carry a fucking knife?
Literally spell out the scenario in which a knife will beat a gun.
You're just going to sneak up and Solid Snake his ass? Come on dude. You can't be so fucking dumb that I have to take you step by step through what I'm saying to you.
Besides keeping a condition 3 AK under my bed, and earpro on standby (don't want to lose any hearing if I have to kill someone)...
I'm always looking for the best places snipers could be hidden in urban areas.
I talk about guns with people a lot, but I try my best to be informative and not be condescending. When people talk about muh .45 stoppin powah, I calmly remind them of the marginal ballistic differences between most pistol calibers, and the real deciding factor when stopping a target with a pistol caliber is shot placement into vital organs. That's really it.
Because that's camping.
>mission impossible theme starts playing as BG enters room
Let me have it, I need my post-annoyance-come-down to help me sleep.
>c o n c e a l e d c a r r y
When the bad guy walks in and you think to yourself "man, why does he have a gun in here? It's neither legal nor practical to carry in this establishment!" I want you to remember this thread.
It's a mixed bag.
They're pretty nice to hold when sleeping. I actually had mine for like 3 years before I hit a low enough point to start doing it haha.
They suck when you wake up and see your waifu in full scale in bed with you, and it hits you like a punch in the gut that it'll never be real.
Hilariously I do the same. Though it's for different reasons.
I've just hit that level of maturity/age where I don't really care.
I've lived in some big cities, it's just a habit.
>corrections on guns
Mostly because I'm the "gun guy" with any group I'm in.
I wear them for work and I'm usually too lazy to put on normal shoes that I will just take off when I go to work later in the day.
Just good SA mang
>never sit with my back to the entrance
Also just some good SA.
Again, mostly a habit that I have a small med kit in my car along with flashlight and other such shit either in my car or on my body.
>wanting to be alone with your thoughts and EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
fuck no, I sleep with a measure of whiskey and a TV.
nioce, I need to remember that.
anyone else feeling the EEEEEEEEEEEEE right now?
>They suck when you wake up and see your waifu in full scale in bed with you, and it hits you like a punch in the gut that it'll never be real.
Just twist that knife even hard. Christ thanks anon.

Me too, it's called a paycheck. Unless you mean working for a natural right, in which case you shouldn't be proud.
Too far. You're now the lice kid nobody wants to eat lunch with.
I have a similar story though it was much closer.

So what happened. Well a guy from an auto tech school had just finished getting a new motor set up in his car. A cylinder had detonated it blew a hole in the hood and the hood and front windshield had caught on fire. We ended up going in the office and getting fire extinguishers and put it out for him. No operating outside of playing fireman.
What exactly happenes when you get tinnitus?
I've had several guns shot nearby me (inside and outside) and I hadn't gotten ear pro on yet.
But I have no ringing. At all. If I lay in a silent room, then it's still silent.
Is this because at 21 my ears are more capable of healing?
>even if it isnt as cerebral as progressive rock/metal.
Do you even know pic related.
Yeah I do that sometimes if I'm trying to sleep in the early morning hours and my neighbors are mowing the lawn or whatever.
Also, all the people on this thread saying that you won't "hear the intruder"...wow. lol.
Life's not a videogame, you autismos really need to chill out with that stuff. Sadly I bet most of you think you're really impressing the rest of us when you babble on like that.
The saddest and most offensive part about this story is it's true.
