I was thinking about how video games often balance guns, and I got to thinking about the cartridges themselves. I found this, but it's too much damn information to digest.

I was thinking more generally. Are pistol cartridges slower than rifle cartridges? If so, are the bell curves between pistol/rifle dramatic, or is there a bit of overlap? Again, speaking generally, is it fair to say that pistols have shorter effective ranges than other weapons (low velocity, thus range)?

Before you get overwhelmed, please relax.

Most pistols use calibers that make the most of what little room they have in the grip. This puts some constraints on how much power you can get out of it in multiple ways. This means that most pistol calibers will be short and stout; regardless of your feelings on bottlenecked pistol calibers, the point is the majority isn't. Out of a handgun, it's often better to push a relatively large and heavy bullet relatively slowly for a few reasons.

You can put more power in a revolver without much trouble because you're not shoving rounds in the thing you wrap your hands around. As fun as big automags are like desert eagles and wildeys, they suffer from the "gripping a 2x4" affliction.

Calibers and the firearms they go in really is a broad topic so this cursory overview is meant more to help you narrow your question if you want to know more.

  This is an old US Army training video on ballistics that might help shed some light on powder burn rate, pressure curve, barrel length, etc. A lot of it isn't relevant to your question but it helps explain why cartridges on the "pistol" end of the spectrum use smaller volumes of faster burning powder and shorter barrels and and cartridges on the "rifle" end of the spectrum use larger volumes of slower burning powder and longer barrels.

I already own 3 .45s (SA 1911, M&P Midsize, Shield 45) and reload for it. Mags aren't too pricey and easy to come by. I see mixed reviews on the trigger but it would be something different in the collection. Thoughts for the price?

I have an old (stamped W. Germany) Sig-Sauer P220. It's a solid, classic design, but I just did not like the feel of the grips. I actually preferred the feel of my double-column .45s like my Tanfoglio Witness 10-shot and FNP-45 15-shot to the 220's 7-shot.

But if you like the feel and the weapon in general and have $450 burning a hole in your pocket, go for it.
>> No. 107743 ID: f2172d
Personally, I'd pass on the DAK trigger. Save a bit more for a used P220 if you're set on a .45 Sig.
>> No. 107744 ID: 9dcda2
Sure, $450 is a bangin' deal. My first gun was a CPO Sig 226 that I paid $650 a decade ago.

The DAK trigger is good for a DAO trigger, but that's still the best of the worst kind of deal.

For what you'd use a P220 for, shootan at the range, the surplus deal is fine.
>> No. 107747 ID: 55fdd6
It seems like a good deal and the DAK seems cool if you're into that sort of thing but legacy model Sigs don't really blow my skirt up, especially lower capacity 45 models.

It seems like you already have pretty much every other 45 base covered and you must have the money to blow, so why not?

Nah. I do pretty well with iron sights. The gun just doesn't do it. I really want it to work, but it doesn't. I'm also staying away from red dots on handguns or shotguns because it would put me into "Open" division. I run "Tactical Limited / Scoped" where you're allowed a rifle with 30 round mags and a red dot / single magnified optic. (A RDS with magnifier would put you into open.)

I try to keep my gear setup somewhat realistic. My Beretta 1301 shotgun has a 21 inch barrel and 8 rounds in the tube. I feel that having a super long tube is "stupid gamer shit", and would still use that gun for defensive use if buckshot or slugs were the answer. (Like buckshot would be ideal for an angry mob with torches, and slugs stop vehicles.)

So far I've been using the standard 15 round mags for either the VP9 or Hudson, but I just ordered two 20's for the VP. They're still within the 140mm length requirement for the "Tactical" divisions.

Totally wore the shirt. Two people asked me about it.

I did well. I would either be in the top 3 or not depending if you scored it "Time plus penalties" or "Points". I realize now that the points scoring system heavily favors short stages and limits the amount of damage from a dumpster fire. My buddy wrecked one stage, so the difference was middle or back of the pack.

I did very well on the long range rifle stage with my red dot. (As opposed to blowing it last time with the 1-6 scope.) At 100 yards, I held on the bottom of the target. At 200, right on. At 300, held on the top. I picked up some 55gr match ammo for the long range stage and the bullets went right where I put the dot, so I guess it worked out.

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

Federal judge blocks publication of 3-D printed gun blueprints

A federal judge on Monday blocked a Texas-based company from making digital blueprints for 3-D printed firearms publicly available online.

The decision effectively criminalizes publication of the 3-D designs for guns, banning Defense Distributed founder Cody Wilson from posting the digital files on the Internet. The legal controversy has sparked a national conversation about the implications of untraceable plastic guns and constitutional rights.

The decision, in favor of attorneys general from 19 states and the District of Columbia, stems from a lawsuit filed July 30 against the State Department, which had agreed to allow Defense Distributed to publish an arsenal of firearms blueprints online in a planned settlement.

The states argued that the release of 3-D printable designs threatened national security and abridged states’ ability to pass and police gun laws. On July 31, Judge Robert S. Lasnik of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, citing risks to public safety, granted the attorneys general’s request.

The legal battle over weapon-design files dates back to 2013, when Wilson manufactured the first printed handgun. Days after Wilson made the blueprints available online, the federal government demanded that he remove the files. Wilson did, then sued the State Department. In June, the federal government reversed course and entered into an agreement permitting Wilson to publish his firearm blueprints online. He intended to do so Aug. 1.

Hours before he planned to publish, Lasnik stopped him.

There was a website I used to shop run by a guy with a cheesy mustache. He sells one-offs of old stuff like 1903's and military surplus like Mausers and K31s and such. He has a separate section for C&R and even Antiques.

If you buy from him, he wants you to email your credit card info and he gives you the option to email bits of it from one address and bits from another address... Because SECURITY!

I can't for the life of me remember the site, and I'd really like to.

Gonna go look at the FN tomorrow, may also look at their SCAR 16.

I'm a big fan of the SCAR 16. It's a great shooter and the only problems I've ever had with the gun were short stroking when I put the gas regulator on suppressed, and when I managed to jam a round in the chamber backwards while trying to admin unload the gun. (Rolled snake eyes, critical miss.)

A Gesissele Super SCAR trigger is a must and I recommend some kind of rail extension. (PWS or KDG)

But, in reality, I hardly shoot mine anymore after building an AR for competition with an adjustable gas block and lightweight recoiling parts. The SCAR is heavier and has a huge amount of reciprocating mass. It's like the gun just pushes you around. A muzzle brake doesn't help much, since the brake works immediately as you fire, then some milliseconds later the bolt hits the back of the receiver and you get a thump.

Another note about the SCAR, gen 2 pmags do not drop free and need to be modified just slightly to prevent the bolt stop from riding up. Gen 3 pmags work great.

However, if I needed a straight up combat gun to fight space aliens, the SCAR would be my go-to. But if the threat consists of robots, dinosaurs, or robot dinosaurs, I grab the HCAR.

The FN was nice.

Whereas, I like the SCAR, I'm more familiar with the AR/M4 platform.

And the X95 felt oddly natural, and nice and short.
