Why don't you own a gun for personal protect as well as home defense?
Aint that the gun that Boston PD proudly posted on their facebook that they confiscated? So a better question is do you even own a gun OP?
It's illegal where I live.
If I would own a gun I would with zero hesitation and no delay go and shoot the brains off my last employer who scammed me of 7 months of full-time work.
Would probably shoot myself after.
Hey, haven't seen this thread in a while...
My preferred for home defense
I dont own a gun cause i'm not under attack, nor do i have any enemies. My Home is not really in need of defending since i dont live in a war zone. Might buy a shotgun for small-game hunting though
These are more for a fun time at the range OP
Because I don't need to compensate OP. If attacked you just need to realize there is no need to resist, just comply and all will be fine.
These "criminals" are in reality just misunderstood and most likely too poor to afford needed prescriptions and antiseptic liquids, not to mention basic clothing like shoes, proper fitting jeans, and other accoutrements that help increase their self esteem amongst their peers. The lack of proper attire also leads them to much frustration with the opposite sex, so much so that they occasionally could be aggressive in seeking the release that the opposite sex provides. In these circumstances too it is reccomended to comply and all will be well, as a matter of fact you can think of it as helping the less fortunate meet their needs. I mean is that worth a life?
The above notwithstanding, it's a known and verifiable fact that just being within 5,000m of a gun will increase your likelyhood of being a victim of guns, including self inflicted injury, by over 126,000%.
I just wish you Amerifats would realize that the massive numbers of preventable gun deaths per year in America, 822/100k residents in 2014 would be near 0 if you would just let go of that antiquated amendment that was written with slings and arrows in mind. The world is waiting for you to come to your senses.
>Not turning on the light
>not using the light on the gun itself
>Not having some kind of security system to warn you before they get into your bedroom
Jim Jeffries is funny, but he doesn't understand the way home defense with guns works.
My guns are at my parent's house until I get a better apartment. They bought them for me for varying birthdays. I don't have enough to buy one of my own. I'm 18, and literally just moved out. I'll get one soon though
I do. It's my grandfather's gun he left me.
Right, because hunting my own game means I'm a beta, for some reason. They can also be used for home defense, but that's not the main reason why I own guns.
Before you make assumptions about a culture, I suggest you familiarize yourself with it. Lest you look like a dumbass.
I never understood buying a derringer.
It doesn't make sense in a world where a Glock 26 exists.
Pic related, its fucking tiny and hold 10 rounds of 9mm, not 1 round of .22.
OMG another junk ROHM revolver. I just use my to pop the hilti .22 nail blanks as a noisemaker, wouldn't trust it to shoot a bullet
If you don't like guns, great, don't own one. Some people like to have guns for many reasons, obviously the most important self defense. Which you guys keep saying, I don't live in a war zone,we'll that's the problem with liberals. They think nothing bad is going to happen, neither did all of the people that were killed yesterday. You can choose to increase your likelihood of survival or dont. Do not take our rights away based on you opinion of not want a gun.
He said he bought it for $50 in 1954. I've shot it a few times. He also left me this rifle.
was it overpriced a bit....... yeah but it's fucking accurate as hell and never fails to go bang no matter what i feed it..... but everyone has their own opinions.
lever action .22..... I assume Marlin? looks the style, and as for Rohm being junk, thats my opinion but if it was left by a family member then it's worth something
Be careful shooting the cheap as guns. Here's a pic of my Rohm .22 that blew up in my hand.
good old rohm, again why I won't do anything more than the tool blanks in mine, wouldn't even have it if it wasn't given to me when i bought a .38 snub nose at a yardsale.
>Only spending $60 on a questionably operational revolver
>the level of niggery here is fucking unacceptable
Jesus christ people, get actual firearms and save yourself a trip to the ER to stitch your hand back together.
>having a streamlight instead of a memelight
Son I am dissapoint.
went with streamlight due to reputation and price, not paying almost 300 for the Insight aftermarket UTL just to have it break on the range like most do. And not paying the exhorbitant price for the actual HK UTL. So if I disaapoint, oh well lol
I can't legally own one due to being court ordered to pshyicatric hospital for evaluation following a fight involving a knife thus disallowing me to ever own or use a fun to save my life
>implying Kimber is worse than any other 1911
1648 round count on that CCCII and no failures or breakages. Not even in the first 500 break in. To me that's working as expected.
I'm not that anon, but I swear you fags need to go back to /k/
You have a collage pic like this for literally every gun and every manufacturer. No doubt. You're just a memelord faggot who hates that people like anything different from what he likes
Kimber runs 44k to 60k 1911's per year, even if all 29 examples you gave happened in 1 year thats a .00066% failure rate, give me any manufacturer and I can most likely come up with as many or more. Statistically irrelavent
"Why don't you own a gun for personal protect as well as home defense?"
Because your toddler child will kill it's mother.. and than you will kill yourself with it.
Only in the US... Jeezzz...
I'm sure we could easily pick apart any gun you own and find plenty of pics of them jamming or breaking. But you wouldn't tell us cuz then you'd have to admit that your prefered guns aren't actually god tier 1000% never break perfect. Lol
Save your cash and get a strikefire II, you don't seem like you shoot enough to justify the aimpoint
I've never had any extreme failures as shown in the MIMber pic, but have had to do plenty of things like spring changes, guns require maitenence.
Just bought one of these, picking it up next weekend. My second gun purchase
>doesn't say what make/model his guns are
>knows his guns have plenty of problems but can't admit it
pick away friendo :^)
because it is against the law if you have ever been in a psychiatric hospital or are on disability and a dependent in florida, and i'm not breaking the law to own one because i can't handle being alone in the home let alone being in prison
I don't have the money to buy one yet. I want one though. I'm too short and too fat to run away from an attacker (on top of being crippled and having brittle bones) so a CCL is pretty much mandatory at this point. Right now I carry a knife, but that's no protection against a guy with a gun.
90s operatin best operatin
I only have a Phoenix Arms HP25A, little on the small side but is fun to shoot
>only need a gun for self defence if you are a woman or a manlet
Say that again while some gangbanger is carjacking you at gunpoint. He can pull the trigger a whole hell of a lot faster than you can stab him in the gut. On top of that, a gunshot wound to the head is almost always instantly fatal (and if not, it will at least knock your dumb ass out), while it takes several minutes for a person to bleed out from a stab wound to the abdomen.
Right. Because keeping a surefire method of dispatching burglars and other unwanted guests from my home just means I have a small penis. It has nothing to do with wanting to keep myself or my family safe from harm, it just means I have an issue with the size of my genitals.
but it is true man, just like keeping a tool chest in the garage means you are hoping for an engine breakdown, and keeping a fire extinguisher in your kitchen means you are hoping for a stove fire........ or worse /sarcasm
I don't live in the hood.
I own 22's for target practice.
I don't own a gun either but at least go to the fucking gun range and get the feel of one you dumb shit. You should at least make sure you don't shit yourself the moment you see one pointed at or near you.
how can guns this big be legal?
Where'd you get that notion? From trumped up statistics that include all instances of suicide and attempted suicide? If you practice with a firearm enough to be proficient and learn gun safety you reduce your odds of accidental self injury to almost none.
This is a perfect example of a person who is not following gun safety.
>Finger on trigger before he has a tight grip on the handle
>Holster isn't pointing the barrel away from body
>Doesn't even attempt to point gun away from body when drawing weapon
There is a proper way to quick draw. I don't know how to do it, and neither does this guy.
What I own is way too long and/or powerful to use for home defense. I just take it out to the range.
I guess if I had to, I could get a little run up speed with the Type 38 and Banzai charge an intruder. Police would definitely be going "What the fuck?" if they saw the aftermath of that.
no. easily defended against. plus, you better believe that a home intruder prepared to do harm to occupants will have AT LEAST a blunt object like a bat or pipe.
always be prepared to be more violent than your opponent
Why would I own a gun to protect myself when I can own 12? can't use a hammer everytime you need a tool anon
but seriously buy a Mauser or Enfield or something
Fucking shiny M48 that is. Was that some kind of parade rifle or just refinished?
Not particularly something I would do, but it does look nice.
My M48's stock is really dark and everything has a black finish. Also weighs a tons compared to every other Mauser I've held. The stock is just super wide.
nigga thats a Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken Brazilian Mauser. made in 1908 in Berlin
I'd seriously like to know how many of you gun owning faggots actually used them against someone who was trying to break into your homes.
I think this is definitely the right attitude. If you own a gun expressly for the purpose of self defense you will find a reason to justify firing it against someone else. In my opinion, having a gun as a hobby makes you more motivated to be safe with it.
You're a fucking moron if you're anti-gun to the point that you would reject a person who's motive is not to injure others. Ideologues like you are the reason freedoms can be restricted without any potential of gaining anything in return.
Tell that to yourself when you point your gun towards your palate.
How, pray tell, is taking away their guns NOT pushing your beliefs onto everybody else? Or is it only a problem if you do it while owning a gun? Your double think intrigues and annoys me.
It's not necessary. There's no reason; burglars don't want to fight, and killers are so rare... The price of the gun isn't worth it because you're never going to need it, it's a waste of money. Unless you're hunting, or live in a really, really shitty place.
Come on, last murder in my town of 50,000 was 10 years ago, why would I need a gun?
I replied to the post, not the person who posted it. I pretty much always assume each post is a different person. The double think existed within the post itself. Why assume I was talking to you if it wasn't your post?
Now THAT'S a good excuse to own a firearm. Kudos to you anon.
I don't think you understand what I meant by that
I know how to handle firearms.. but I also suffer from infrequent suicidal thoughts. And I don't want to have a bad night and do something gravely stupid.
How do you like your strike fire
It's the people who own guns who kill the people who don't so liberals can complain all they like. And no, nothing will happen, if you own a gun for self defense you're just paranoid.
>Guns are machines used to kill things.
This statement implies guns have a singular purpose. This implication excludes the possibility of being against killing and owning a gun. Upon rereading the post I realized that I read "aren't against killing" instead of "are against killing." My bad, was assuming double think from the above implication and misreading.
Because securing my home is far more effective.
Invest in some (quality) security screens on all doors and windows and some well-researched, unbreakable locks.
Guns for home defence are a retarded idea. Criminals always rob you when you aren't home anyway. Fucking gun nuts just need a reason to justify ownership of guns other than "we like them very much". Truth be told, that *should* actually be enough of a reason. Everything should be legal.
PUT THE FUCKIN SAFETY ON NOOB!
If the hammer is not cocked, you cannot engage the safety on an AR15/M4/M16.
You can only engage the safety after charging the rifle.
This is according to every US Army TM I ever saw while serving as well as the civi manufacturers manuals. You are 100% wrong!
BUT, a half pull of the charging handle to mid way does not cock the rifle, and allows you to switch the rifle to safe but it is highly not recommended.
if the rifle is charged with a round in the chamber of course I would have the safety on faggot, but no round in the chamber and hammer down (not charged) there is not an AR on the planet that can switch to safe. Unless you modified parts which would be additionally retarded on your part
holy shit anons, way to take the most obvious bait ever fucking posted
No no no. I have one i should know lol you gotta be trolling. It will not let u flip safety on unlees its charged. I really really hope you dont own one. I bet you force the shit out of it wondering if its broken . KEK
Look dude you are right in that the M4/M16 rifle will half charge so you can put the safety on, so the AR15 will most likely do the same but essentially your STILL charging the fucking rifle (hammer down) to get that selector to safe.
I was taught to pull the charging handle about 1/4-1/3 of the way back, then rotate the selector to safe and release.
Weapon now safed and uncharged. I used this to cheat a bit during PLDC as we had to walk around with a round chambered at all times, then clear it before entering a building. This gets old when going from class room to barracks to class room to PT to chow to barracks etc. So I "simulated" the round in the chamber so I could just drop the mag, count the 3 rounds and clear it without chasing a flying round or juggling to get it before it pops out.
I would not ever do this in combat. I wouldn't do it anywhere else ever period.
I'm assuming you bought it for defense and you haven't even checked to see if it works yet? In a year?
Jesus value your life more. I need to trust my firearms, not go on blind chance of them going off if I ever need to use it.
because im not insecure
and no i'm not a libcuck
paid $275 for it back in 96ish. the only thing i've replaced on it were the factory mags....bought during the assault weapon ban and they held only 10 rounds.
>i've fired damn near 60k rounds through that bad boy. very, very few malfunctions
>be at at gas station (in a "nice" part of town)
>filling my truck
>begs for money
>tell him i'm paying with credit card, no cash
>he pulls what looked like a filed down screwdriver
>tells me "ima git dat money, nigga"
>pull my glock 27 .40 cal. (i have concealed carry license)
>ask him "are you sure?"
>nigger turns 360º
Actually, no. Read some SWAT statistics, they consider a knife to be a lethal weapon at 20 yards, because it takes a couple of seconds for your brain to register the fact that the situation changed and you need to shoot followed by a half second to actually fire the weapon.
Someone pointing a gun at you and not firing immediately does not *intend* to fire it if he doesn't have to. Now unless you're going to cheat and insist that you'd already have your gun drawn before the crackhead, you have a few options to consider:
>drawing your gun
>drawing a knife
either of these things is going to take long enough for the crackhead to decide to fire. Your gun is not going to solve this problem any more efficiently than a knife.
>grab the crackhead's gun
This is actually your most survivable option, because it doesn't require preparation like drawing your gun or knife (or crowbar, or dildo, or whatever). Grab the gun and turn around while stepping toward the crackhead. Put your back right up to his chest so you're *behind* the gun instead of in front of it. Then beat him in the face with the back of your head. Keep your hand on top of the pistol so if it goes off you can keep the slide from cycling fully to chamber the next round. If you get it out of his hand without it going off, you win.
If he's still on your back reaching for the gun, lean forward, look down, and shoot him in the foot.
If he makes a break for it, you got a free gun and a cool story no one will believe. Do NOT shoot him in the back as he's running away, even cops have trouble getting away with this.
>but he might SHOOT ME
You're already in that situation. He's already committing a felony and you're the only witness, so there's no real reason to assume that cooperating will actually save your life.
A firearm is superior to a knife period. Your scenario is retarded and only suggests you're a noguns faggot trying to justify some delusion of being just fine in a self defense situation.
Planning on building an AR-15 for a bugout bag. What parts do you guys reccomend. I'm broke so nothing solid gold unless it is priced like regular steel. Also does /b/ prefer pistol or thumb hole grips?
