The Beretta 81. A double stack .32ACP blowback DA/SA sized like a Beretta 92 left in the dryer too long, but with the safety on the frame as God intended.

The .380 Beretta 84 is pretty common, as is the single stack .380 85, but the .32ACPs are hard to find. I stumbled into this thing at Sarco for under $200 and jumped on it, even though I live in NJ and had to get a separate pistol permit. The ones that pop up on Gunbroker go for a lot more.

The sights are uselessly small. The front is fixed, as is typical for Beretta, but the rear can be swapped out. I'll probably paint the front post to make it a little easier to pick up. When you get the sights lined up, it's pretty accurate.

The serrated trigger is pretty good - smooth, modestly heavy DA, and a pretty light SA with a short reset. It's not that much worse than my tricked out CZ SP01, and similar to a non-SRT SIG or S&W 59xx. The 'AD' stamp ahead of the trigger guard means this is from 1978.

The Beretta with my 1992 CZ75. It's small, but not pocket sized. If it was a locked breech 9mm, rather than a .32ACP pop gun, it would be a fantastic carry gun. As is, it's a range toy with modest recoil and reasonable ammo costs.

This whole nerf bullet makes me wonder if simply making a front-heavy bullet with a light rear, a bit like a brenneke slug, could work reasonably well and be cheaper than regular ammo + 30 cents.

Basically a regular swaged copper over lead core bullet with an attached aluminum or plastic tail. It might sound more expensive but depending on the method of attaching the tail, it could be incorporated into the swaging process for the rest of the bullet, like a crimped-on system, see 9001 hours in MSPAINT.

Left is the "bullet for smoothbore", right is a common poly-tip bullet. The process for making it would be similar, it would just be "upside down" and the proportions would change.

Is there a legal reason Mossberg and Remington haven't made Shockwave-esque "firearms" based on their semi-automatic platforms? Is overall length the issue? Are they not willing to commit manufacturing capacity to a loophole type gun? Are semi-automatics so low-margin that they won't commit dedicated manufacturing capacity for a new line? What gives?

A lot of semi-autos house the main action spring in the stock. As far as I know, both Mossberg and Remington use this setup for their current production semi-auto shotguns. They would have to put the main action spring around the magazine tube or somewhere else that would allow for a "stockless" design.

It seems to me that the prototyping and redesign over what can be arguably called a "gimmick" or "loophole gun" would make the semi-auto "shockwave" guns somewhat unmarketable.

The Turkish 1919 shotgun pictured here could be a good candidate for this kind of thing. The stock/fake buffer tube can be removed completely without any change in the mechanical function of the firearm, making it a giant shotgun pistol grip only thing. Sadly it's not a very good shotgun to begin with so it would again just be a range toy. Nothing wrong with that though, even if the 1919 isn't really a shotgun that could be trusted with any serious purpose, it doesn't fail to make me smile.

>the shit below is an attempt to explain the limited marketability of "shockwave" setups in my anecdotal opinions
>its mostly conflicted rambling and can be ignored
Although I tend to think stockless shotguns are more of a range silly thing than a good choice for defensive purposes because they are indeed harder to shoot accurately as quickly as a stocked shotgun, I do see their value in a few ways. I would personally take a normal 18.5" PGO setup for a few reasons however.

First is that I hate bird's head grips. I think they are terrible at everything, and a thousand times out of a thousand, I would choose a pistol grip like the one seen on this picture related 1919. This is very personal so this point obviously doesn't apply to many people. I would actually be okay with a pistol grip that has a few inches of "stock" after it (as if you cut off the last half of an AR-15's buffer tube) to comply with the length requirements for the shockwave-style stuff while still having a grip that doesn't make me hate life.

Second, a shorter barrel may look cool and provide a bit more of a compact setup, but if you're going to be using this defensively, you have to consider the noise and blast that accompanies a shorter barrel. I would be willing to trade a few inches of compactness if it means my eardrums do not cave in. Obviously, hearing damage will definitely still occur, but just a few decibels (a logarithmic scale) can make a lot of difference in how fucked you may be after the first shell fired.

Finally, unless all these things start costing less than a regular shotgun + tax stamp, they will always be pretty niche items.

Range report for the Taurus PT-111 G2c

All good. Shoots a little low out of the box, sights are adjustable. Will adjust next go around.

250 rounds down range, no issues.

CCW/EDC/Truck Gun.

The G3 is coming out soon and if they adjust the trigger I will own that as well. Never thought I would own one much less potentially two Taurus pistols.

On a more serious note this weapon has everything that I desire in a concealed carry weapon.

I carry with one in the chamber. Just how I roll. This for me in my mind requires that I must have a manual safety on the weapon as I do not have full control of the weapon while it is holstered.

I know it may be weird to some. Just my requirement.

Bonus, it comes with a trigger safety as well.

12+1 standard, comes with 2 mags.

Very happy with this gun.

The G2c version comes without the Taurus security locking system.

> 12+1 standard

What's the size like? I'm guessing as wide as a glock 19, but shorter barrel and grip?

On a scale of 1 to staple gun, how's the trigger?
>> No. 107094 ID: d7e6b8
>What's the size like?
Fits my hand perfectly. Could see this being a little small on the grip for the 6'+ crowd until a more firmed up aftermarket version of the extended pinky rest mag comes out.

Beyond the troughs in the front the entire slide is tapered slightly, the gun is extremely easy to draw.

>On a scale of 1 to staple gun, how's the trigger?
Hmm... What to say here.

First, you can and should totally ride the trigger bar on reset. It is firm and the reset is very short. See the video.

I plan on dumping a lot of rounds through this gun to get it down.

You may also hear about it being "gritty". That was resolved on the g2c by removing the Taurus security locking system. There was not grit for me, only a firm bar and short reset. There is an aftermarket for non C models that disengages the key safety and removes the grit as well. I don't own the earlier models so I do not have any issues here.

I love my RDB, it's everything I've come to expect from Kel-Tec products, but unfortunately, that includes their pathological desire to include the worst possible aesthetic in terms of handguard.

HOWEVER! "Lucky Irishman Firearms" has designed a far superior handguard for the RDB, and I'd love to have one, but they're currently out of stock.

That plus at least $45 for the Anderson lower is just a few bucks shy of a dedicated Glock mag lower. But if you intend on removing the adapter and swapping the buffer to use a standard 5.56 or whatever upper than I can see the benefit.
>> No. 107078 ID: 2e8d07
Right - It's that I had an Anderson lower laying around already, since I bought it when I was sure Hillary was gonna be prez. If I had to start from scratch, definitely get a dedicated lower.

I actually should 3d print my own fletching jig. I own a 3d printer. It would make my life a lot easier to not have to rely upon the range owner's equipment to make my own arrows, which I will need to do by myself eventually.

Also, range report. Today was my first day shooting these bamboo arrows and comparing them against my shoot from yesterday with my carbon arrows.

My carbon arrows weren't able to hold a group at 10m, and I rarely actually hit the target at all.

My bamboo arrows held a group at 20m on a standard 18m traditional archery 40cm ring target. Zero misses.

It's really bizarre. Everything on paper says that my carbon arrows should be better. Everything. Spine charts say my bamboo arrows are too lightly spined. They flex unevenly depending on how you flex them! Yet, they fly straight in flight, and my carbon arrows wobble about as if they are *under spined*.

I don't get it.

They're unreliable even when they're "reliable". I've yet to meet anyone that has one that cycles 100% every time. Some people love it for what it is, others don't. I know a couple guys that carry them on their trap lines.

There are a ton (new)on gunbroker for around that price shipped on cursory glance. Just find a place that'll do an FFL transfer and you'll be golden. It's pretty easy. Most places charge $15-50. I charge $25 where I work.

The .22 Magnum is a good varminting round and our nation's morgues has proved it's a killer. I like how many .22 LR single-action revolvers can swap out their cylinders for .22 Magnum cylinders, transforming a target/plinker to a rat-blaster. My Ruger New Model Single-Six is a good example of this. Terrible capacity (6 compared to 30), slow to reload, but accurate, reliable and will shoot all brands if you can stick 'em in the cylinder.

Now I have heard over the years that the Kel-Tek PMR-30 has feeding problems (perhaps this is mainly from not working well with certain ammo brands or loads) to reports of the cast metal breach blowing apart and disassembly pins breaking. If these are actually recurring problems, then that is a deal-breaker for me. Anyone have practical experience with it?
>> No. 107037 ID: f0fb5d
Neat plinker because fuck reloading. I don't know that I'd trust a 22 Mag with my life when there are more reliable, more powerful, more easily concealable alternatives easily available from other reputable manufacturers.
>> No. 107043 ID: 54751f
Apparently, this was fixed. I've read that the original PMR30 had a bunch or problems, it either F2F, F2E or some other problem. But, Kel-Tec heard the complaints and fixed it in later builds of the PMR30.
Now, my problem is that I have no idea how to tell the difference between the old PMR30 and a new one.
