You can only post in this thread if you've experienced the satisfaction of racking the slide on a 1911. Anyone who says America shouldn't have guns has no idea what it means to be American.
Get a Jericho 45. It's under $500, and better than a 1911.
Why would you want some 100 year old piece of garbage when there are modern hitech guns available?
I guess you are ok with your kid accidentally killing himself
Had one in my army time, great gun.
The so save Armatix guns are super dangerous
>if you pull the trigger and then get your finger of it, a shot can go off.
>the trigger weight is way to high
>Normaly when it comes to firearms: Green=> Save / Red => Ready to shoot. But Armatix use blue and white, this dont tell people who dont know the gun nothing

I plan on gassing myself after I vote for Trump anyway. I also drink.
>he posted, after being tempted to buy one on slickguns all last week
A bunch of different deals in different calibers, all priced anywhere around $400-$500.
Just the latest one, apparently 4 pages back now...
If you're a great shot it isn't a bad deal but I'd rather have a double stack 9mm that holds twice as much ammo while taking up less space if I'm going to carry. Your average gang banger isn't going to have a plate carrier or attack from cover, most instances of self defense see a handgun as a glorified knife
If I had to own a gun it'd be a 1911. .45 is just a great cartridge for self defence. For home defence, I'd get a shotgun. I'd also get a .22 LR pistol for plinking, basically shits and giggles.
I can't say this shit in public here. It's not viewed as a hobby or right. If you support guns, you're a baby killing madman who wants to slaughter civilians, and you have a small dick too or something.
It sucks. We can own rifles sure, but the ammo can't be centre fire, we are limited to certain calibers, and the gun itself can't be too large nor too small... and we need to jump through a load of permits and legal wrangling to get one. And even after that, we need to pay the licence fee, buy two safes, bolt them to the floor, and store the (unloaded) weapon in one and the ammo in the other. And further still, I have to agree to random checks at any time by the police without notice. AND I need to prove I have a legitimate reason for wanting to own one. And I need several background checks, and people who agree to interviews with the police concerning me to make sure I'm not an odd sort. It's just a mess.
I just want to target shoot, is that okay? Jesus. Archers don't have to deal with this shit
>that retarded safety way up on the slide
>it's just a CZ clone that was in Cowboy Bebop
>See you, Space Retard
I wouldn't mind one as a collector's item, it would have to be real Jericho, not the Baby Eagle, but come on, there's better wondernines out there.
They do in aus as of late. I saw an article where they were cracking down on bows and xbows after a single murder saying no one needs one lol. This fucking world. I won't give up my rifle or pistol without spilling blood. Its the only thing that protects you from being a peasant.
>buying a cz clone
>not buying a real CZ
You can fire guns the instant you get off the plane. Go to a shooting range, tell them you are inexperienced, and rent a firearm.
There is a profession in our shooting ranges called Range Master. They make sure people are practicing safe gun etiquette and are supposed to respond to any funny business.
>go to gun range
>learn about guns
>have good time
>known for jamming issues?
>perfected the original
>putting quotations on clone
>The original Jericho 941 was modeled on the well-respected CZ-75 pistol designed and produced by Česká zbrojovka (CZ) of the Czech Republic and built using parts supplied by the Italian arms house Tanfoglio, which had been making their own CZ-75 clones. Using a well-tested design allowed IMI to avoid the teething problems most new pistol designs experience, and subcontracting much of the basic fabrication work to Tanfoglio allowed IMI to quickly and economically put into production a pistol that would have enough Israeli content to satisfy government contract requirements
>Tfw they've updated the 1911 over the years
>Tfw you post a .22 pistol
I worked in the uk and had a co- worker that would go in business trips to the US from time to time. First thing he would do on a free day is hit a gun range just to target shoot. Buying you would probably not be able to unless you are a citizen or green card holder and then this also varies from state to state. Going to a range and renting a gun should be fine as long as you have a valid ID of some kind.
IT job in Akron for a year installing and tech support for some company I've never heard (still contracted to who I work for in the UK). Literally less than 24 hours ago so I've not even researched residency and whatnot. I assume work will tell me about the visa.
That's good, I'd love to stay but I'd at least like to go to a range.
Akron has a lot of black areas so I would research where you are going to live thoroughly, I'm not all that familiar with Akron but you aren't very far form Cleveland so ill find you some gun shops around there, give me a minute I have some cards.
Yes, not full auto.
B&T shooting supplies in Middleburg heights
Not a range but the staff are helpful and will let you fingerfuck guns so you can check things out you may like.
Stonewall in Brecksville is a range with a somewhat decent selection but the employees are assholes and they have stupid range rules but it's in the area.
Turns out most of my cards are for gunsmiths, I thought I had more ranges but the area does not have a lot of them.
>get a polymer 9mm
Or get whatever you like and tell people with stupid opinions to fuck off.
I'll write it down and hope it doesn't get lost amongst everything else I've got to write down, thanks. Should be out there within a month or two if I take it.
I'm from quite rural England so a 30-40 minute drive is perfectly acceptable to me.
I'm not the 1911 guy.
If you're going to big a bighuge magnum you might as well get it in semiauto
my particular perspective is that 9mm with a large magazine and a good load is the best, ensuring ideal placement and many chances to do so
.45 is also good, but the issue of viable concealed carry options arises, relative same performance for a much larger and more unweildy load, etc
I would be carrying a large cap. magnum under a coat if it weren't blisteringly hot here. shit, maybe I'd just carry a shotgun. But I can't.
either way, as powerful as .44 is, the first shot is still only maybe 15% more likely to end the fight compared to 9mm. then the speed of the follow up shot, the size of the weapon, etc all complicate it.
you cc a mag?
I do CC it while I backpack, I live in an area where Puma are present so it is needed.
I actually own a S&W 9mm and a Rem R1 1911 as well but I dont like either of them. In terms of handguns I pretty much only enjoy the feel of the 1911 and nothing else about them and revolvers.
I mostly have a thing for long range shooting though when it comes to guns over anything else.
God bless this land and all of our armed inhabitants. Every existing non-american human on the planet could band together to fight America and they would be fucking slaughteres 5000 to 1 on our mainland. Only total annihilation of the entire planet can make sure we are gone.
>saving lives by binning knives
>people will imply you are gay if the caliber of your preferred weapon is too smal
>They are the 2nd greatest race on this planet, 2nd only to the nords. They are our brothers.
That explains all the great contributions they have made to humanity...
a 200 by 200 mile slum existing south of los angeles, near my house, swallowing all of southern california that isn't desert, seems to disagree with you.
you are of course, free to move there any time you like if you believe in the superiority of wetbacks. but of course, you won't. so maybe you should shut up before we kill you for destroying the country
Revolvers Jam? No, but timing is a thing on wheel guns, plus less capacity, plus weight, plus blowing your finger off if your hand is in the wrong place.
I own revolvers and like them just fine. But in a gun fight I would definitely pick something else.
>Once fired a 1911 (the range guy said it was a Kimber) at an indoor range in Vegas
>mfw I probably won't get to fire one again unless I move to glorious murrica
Think we'll ever get rid of our shitty gun legislation over here, Amerifriends?
Northeast Ohioan here. Research where you live in Akron, as another anon said. It's kind of a shitty city and you're likely to put yourself in an unsafe area.
I go to a Point Blank near me and have had nothing but pleasurable experiences there but you need to register your ID, etc. There's likely one near Akron/Canton.
I keep a revolver for self defense because I can keep it loaded indefinitely with no maintenance. A loaded magazine for a pistol would overcompress the spring unless it were rotated out every few months, and I know I wouldn't bother.
With a revolver, it's guaranteed to work. A gun fight won't last beyond the 5 shells. Probably won't last beyond 2 shells. One in the heart, and one in the head.
I have dozens of mexican friends. I am a southerner. You are merely both cowardly and dumb. A mexican will only respect someone that isnt a coward. Simple as that. Once you become a real man you will understand why mexicans are great.
>Think we'll ever get rid of our shitty gun legislation over here, Amerifriends?
To be honest no I don't. I spent roughly an aggregate 2 months in the UK over the last year on business trips and just the general perception of guns and masculine (and American) culture in general is what I would call irredeemable.
Most Americans will read this post here >>61172476 and assume it's some form of hyperbole or satire, but my in experience the absolute hostility towards firearms is exactly as described. There is a rabidly liberal mindset that is just so inexorably ingrained in the collective psyche that I don't see any kind of boomsticks being deregulated soon. The couple times in conversations that I mentioned I could literally just walk into a gun show or gun store, make purchases and walk out with an AR, AK, drum mags and ammunition within 30 minutes, I received gaping mouths and "no wonder you Americans have so many shootings" in return.
It would necessitate a complete cultural shift on your part, not just legislative fiat.
So what have they added to civilization, aside from tacos.
if you really hate the killing that much maybe you should direct your hate to the people doing the killing, such as, say, niggers and mexicans, rather than whites or asians
but you don't hate violence. if you did you'd hate niggers. you just want an excuse to feel superior
exactly, you don't see race because you won't gain sjw status by hating on niggers
meanwhile america is 5% asian and we don't hurt anyone.
you're a coward. and it's why europe is fucked. please, stay out of asia.
Killing is what we are good at.
You know, like how we killed your faggot cuck anscestors when they tried to take our guns the first time, leaving an entire nation still completely rectally ravaged over our gun rights 240 years later.
Ive got a galil too incase im feeling 5.56
>carrying a heavy chunk of metal
>not carrying a Glock 43, XDS, or Shield 9
Got a Taurus pt1911 at a gun show last weekend. Blasted 200 rounds, and loved every second of it. In hindsight, a 9mm may have been preferred due ammo purchasing budgetary constraints (inb4 cucked by wife) but 1911 is manliest gun on market.
7.62 galil was never used anywhere fun. Fal and R4 have history
Hooke's law is a principle of physics that states that the force needed to extend or compress a spring by some distance is proportional to that distance. That is: where is a constant factor characteristic of the spring, its stiffness. The law is named after 17th century British physicist Robert Hooke.
So, the above has nothing to do with the assertion that you're making.
I figured even someone as stupid as yourself would want to run away from europe once it was encoded into the constitution that ahkmeds had the right to behead white people in public
So you keep a gun you don't practice with on a regular basis? "One in the head" any instructor will tell you to aim for centermass you are far more like to miss the head and cause collateral damage. How do you not realize you need to practice with your carry weapon to be effective with it?
center of mass is also kinda dumb though. you almost certainly will not hit the spine, and the only other incapacitating shots are a heart shot or a headshot.
you should be aiming for the triangle between the two nipples and nose.
you have enough ammo to spare in a modern 9mm. a headshot incapacitates immediately, but 9 torso shots might not do anything at all
there are situations abound where people are shot with 16 9mm, or 2 12 ga shotgun blasts and they continue to fight for 5 to 10 minutes, which is the bleedout time of a non-aortal hit. plenty of time for them to kill you with their gun.
we need bigger, better guns, not to kill them, but to stop them IMMEDIATELY.
look up massad ayoob on yt for proper information. fucking video games and james bond make you kids think any gun is instantly lethal from a chestshot. not how it works, buddy
Jesus christ that guy was nutnfancy before internet existed.
Shot placement is all that matters, 22lr can kill a man with shot placement.
Center mass -> Pelvis -> head
>sent out Firearm application, wait time is months
>can't convince parents about having guns in the house
>only thing parents say is "guns are dangerous, that's it"
>no amount of facts and statistics will convince them
Time to move out.
I wasn't really a 1911 guy before but I bought an SR1911 CMD because I figured I should have at least one for my collection. Now I can feel the 1911 fever coming on, I want to get a nicer one down the road.
only takes 5 seconds for them to shoot you in the head. if you wanna gamble with your own life go ahead, but don't reccomend it to other people, if you have a conscience
dude is an ex cop who then specialized in court testimony, law, and home defense.
but go ahead and put your own life in the hands of 22lr
what are you, gay?
Just kidding, of course. Anyone who will disparage you for the gun you use is the biggest fagmaster on Earth.
>dude is an ex cop who then specialized in court testimony, law, and home defense.
He is the sort of hack that says "dont modify your trigger or you will go to jail" and other shit. He comes from an era of 1911s and swat magazine being the source for gun info.
>but go ahead and put your own life in the hands of 22lr
It was a hyperbole you dumbshit
>only takes 5 seconds for them to shoot you in the head.
I hope it takes them that fucking long
let's trade. you fill someone with 5 9mm and he can get two shots off of a 12 ga.
6/7 gunshot victims survive, which means they were still functional after being shot. I don't want someone attacking my kids to remain functional, and simply give up. I want the assurance that he simply cannot continue.
