Hey boys my girl and I are going to a party as a cowboy and cowgirl and I figure since my state allows open carry that I should use this as an excuse to get a real revolver instead of some dinky toy.
I'm torn between the .44 and the .357 Magnum. Which does /k/ prefer these days? What's the best make/model of each?
Also, any recs regarding holsters with a traditional look?
I am also interested in what /k/ would recommend. I think the .357 is an all-around better round but the .44 has that classic big revolver appeal.
I want a real Revolver and holster to complete the authentic Cowboy look. The rest of my costume is authentic so I figure this part should be too. And it's also an excuse to finally buy a revolver w/o my girl bitching about the cost help a brotha out /k/
What was gun culture like in the 1990s?
I can only attest to the supremely bubbafied context of western Pennsylvania gun owners: actions were operated with bolts -semiautos are inhabited by enraged machine spirits that deliberately jam out of spite.
When in the 1990s? 1991 was much different from 1998.
1991 was a golden age. You could buy a Norinco SKS and the gunstore would give you 1000 rounds of ammo to go with it for free. Milsurp rifles of all kinds for under $50 each. Enfield? $44. Nugget? $29. Surplus Makarovs, Cz pistols, and AKs were pouring in from the eastern bloc. FALs were plentiful and cheap. You could still get Uzis and HKs for reasonable prices despite the '89 import ban. Full auto wasn't yet retardedly expensive.
The internet didn't exist and there wasn't much useful knowledge available, but if you had a good LGS or went to a gunshow (they were worthwhile then) you could get any of this stuff. No Brady check, either. Cash and carry with maybe a 4473.
Fudd shit still ruled but that was changing with the supercheap milsurp, 80s action movie effects, and the widespread adoption of wondernines. More and more people would show to the range with an AK or AR. Things still weren't nearly as tactical. If you were under 30 you were the odd one out and the elderly fudds would glare at you suspiciously when you walked into the LGS.
Are there options other than the vortex spitfire for people that want to see a clear 1x dot/reticle and have astigmatism?
(and don't want to deal with the eye-box of a 1 to X variable scope)
Could any hardened bunker complex survive a groundburst megaton scaled weapon being detonated directly in front of its entrance?
so you end up being the general or the battle plans guy for nork
how would you defend against usa/japan/ and worst korea??
what's your battle plan guy
Which sword was the best in LOTR?
Received the opportunity to join Army EOD today and am seriously considering going. EOD thread. What is EOD school like down in Eglin? Why does it have such a high failure rate? Apart from studying and not being a goon, how does one do as well as possible in the course to get their crab?
>What is EOD school like down in Eglin?
Long. Good living standards though.
>Why does it have such a high failure rate?
1. A lot of people who think they can be around explosives become shaky and unsuitable the second you give them a blasting cap.
2. It's a long school with a lot of tests, get jammed on even a single test and you're done.
3. Some people get clausterphobic, so the bombsuit ruins them.
4. Related to #3, it's more than just being able to physically move in a bombsuit. You have to be able to think clearly and methodically in a bombsuit. It's not like a ruckmarch where you can just zone out your mind to get through it.
4. Some people will flip out under the stress, lose their cool, and go into a death spiral during a practical exercise.
>Apart from studying and not being a goon, how does one do as well as possible in the course to get their crab?
Study good, keep a level head. Having very good cardio makes the environment easier to deal with. Don't argue with instructions, because sometimes phase I and phase II will conflict, just take what they tell you and roll with it. Don't bother trying to learn about ordnance beforehand on google because all it's going to do is fuck you up by putting info that might be wrong into your head.
Have you been through the course with Officers trying to go EOD? If so, what have you noticed about them and their behavior and how they performed in the course? Thank you so much for the information.
Why is this cartridge so shit? It's got a longer case than, say, 9x19, and it's only got a 100gr projectile. It should be launching that thing crazy fast, but it doesn't even reach 1000fps out of a 4.5in barrel. What's wrong with this cartridge?
Asian living Houston here, after the recent hurricane and subsequent chaos I have been thinking about rooftop defense against urban criminals and looters. I currently have a PTR-91 but don't know if I need a bolt action for more accurate shots

Has that ever been a thing in the entire history of the armed forces using parachutes?
I've been trying to buy a good AR15 for years, and finally stumbled upon a brand called BCM. But they're unwilling to sell me an AR in an up to date rail system. Keymod will soon be outdated yet they are still trying to push old technology. And making me feel like I'm lucky to pay top dollar for outdated technology. Mlok is what AR15's should have, and the search continues for an AR that meet my criteria (it has been years).
>stumbled upon a brand called BCM
One of the biggest aftermarket brands, of course.
More like need to get rid of their stock.
>AR that meet my criteria
Literally any aftermarket MLOK rail will do.

>implying you need any guns besides a Glock 19 and an AR-15
I just came here to call you a faggot.
Saged because your shitty thread doesn't deserve a bump.
