Fun fact: you can conceal any size fixed blade knife in the state of Nevada with a ccw. This recent revelation, combined with the fact the missus still won't let me have funz (you put a pistol to your head one time), has got me seriously considering buying a real noif.

Two part question: which one and how should I train with it? I'm currently thinking the Buck 619 Bowie knife and there's a martial arts studio down the road teaching Eskrima. I can be swayed otherwise.

  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.

I have some questions.

I am not enough of a warlock to figure this out on my own:
In california, would it be legal to build an AR pistol if I used a grip like the one pictured, and a stabilizing brace?

What else would I need to avoid to keep it technically featureless?

"Double Deuce" 2-Bore Rifle: A Gunsmithing Spectacle https://youtu.be/OYlDgwo52tI
Sold for:
Double Deuce rifle: $6,900
Lil' Deuce pistol: $4,313

The largest sporting rifles ever actually used in the field as more than an exhibition were 4-bore stopping rifles, firing roughly 1" in diameter (25mm) projectiles. These were intended to not simply kill a dangerous animal, but to stop it immediately in a charge, which might require shooting through thick bone or horn protection. For that purpose, the 4-bore could have some value - assuming you had an assistant to carry it when danger was not imminent!

However, there have been a number of gunsmiths who have built 2-bore rifles, like this example named "Double Deuce" by its maker, Stolzer & Son of Kansas. At 44 pounds, this behemoth is definitely too heavy for practical use, but it sure is an impressively huge piece of work! It fires a 1.33" (33.8mm) ball weighing 3500gr (227g) at about 1250fps (380 m/s)...if you can hold it on target long enough to get an accurate shot.

As it turns out, any pistol with a magazine outside the grip is an assault weapon.

So, the CMP has released their procedures and pricing for the M1911’s and M1911A1’s that we’re released to them by the Secretary of the Army. For those that have not seen the page or want more in depth descriptions of pistol grades, see <a href="http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/1911-information/">here.</a>

$1050 for Service Grade, $950 for Field, $850 for Rack. Notable pistols will be auctioned.

They explain ad nauseum the procedure to obtain one, but there is little on the guns themselves. No provisions seem to have been made regarding choosing whether you want the original or A1, or choosing a manufacturer. Which leads me to believe that it’s luck of the draw, and every gun is going to be a mediocre quality mixmaster. Therefore, for a pistol that is more collectible based upon its origin of parts, production dates, and stamps/rollmarks (as opposed to condition of grips and finish), why is CMP selling them based upon the cosmetic condition? Are you going to buy one?

I would expect the overwhelming majority of them to be A1 pattern, just due to how old the non-A1 models are (and thus a lot of them have been lost due to falling apart over time and use) and just how many more A1s were made.

A group of Republican state legislators in South Carolina introduced a measure Thursday that would allow the state to secede from the United States if the federal government began to seize legally purchased firearms in the state.

The bill, which was referred to the state House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, would allow South Carolina lawmakers to debate whether to secede from the United States if the federal government were to violate the Second Amendment.

It states that "the general assembly shall convene to consider whether to secede from the United States based upon the federal government's unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this state."

The measure, introduced by GOP Reps. Mike Pitts, Jonathon Hill and Ashley Trantham, comes amid an intense debate over the nation's gun laws that was reignited in February after a deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Fla.
Since then, anti-gun violence advocates have stepped up demands for new gun control laws, calling for prohibitions on assault-style weapons and stronger background checks for gun buyers, among other measures.

The South Carolina bill is unlikely to make it through this session. It faces an April 10 deadline to go to the state Senate for consideration.

South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union in the lead up to the Civil War, withdrawing in 1860.

Damn /k/ i've had my head under a rock for the past year cause other things needed to happen besides guns, but now that I'm looking around seems like everything is crazy expensive.
There used to be a cheap option for shooting, but now even a 10/22 almost cost $300
Is there a cheap option for shooting nowadays? Is there a current Nagant or similar on the market? Barring dirt cheap options, is it still economic to start with an 80% and build up?

Obviously much of the above information is outdated, and neither Keymod and Mlok were not on the market as of yet, among other things. Still there's a lot of decent info there to look over.

Postwar arsenal reparked/refinished pistols are the norm in my experience. That one is pretty obvious with the faded stamps. Very rarely do you see a true bring back with original worn finish. The last one I saw was a "dad died and I'm not really a gun person" scenario.

While in my opinion it being a refinished gun with a fairly prominent idiot scratch diminishes the value well below 90%, blue book is just a general guideline and I think $1,500 for a US property marked gun is most definitely not outside the norm, but certainly not a steal.

I'm assuming he wants cash as well, because I would trade my 19 for that in an instant. (despite being a total glockfag that has zero interest in 1911's other than historically significant examples).

Literally wrong. If you have a bunch of voters in one place voting pro-gun, then you get to keep your guns there. If you have just one person in each area voting to keep your guns while everyone else in each area votes to take guns, then you get your guns taken. That's how it works.
