If the Roi de Rome received a goodbye present from his father, it may well have been a present his father commissioned for his son’s upcoming third birthday in March. Napoleon ordered a pair of bespoke dueling pistols from gunsmith to the French monarchs Jean Le Page. Made of blue steel with walnut and ebony stocks and inlaid with gold, the guns were custom-made to fit a young boy’s hands. Engraved on the lock of the pistols is the fateful production date, Janv. (January) 1814.

Whether the Roi de Rome received his last present from his father is not known. The pistols remained behind as Napoleon’s empire fell completely apart in a matter of weeks and he was compelled to abdicate under pressure from the Allies, first in favor of his son, and then in favor of nobody. Technically the King of Rome’s pistols were now the property of the newly restored Bourbon King of France Louis XVIII, but the new king wasn’t all that keen to keep a tight grip on the previous throne-holder’s stuff.

While I wouldn't call it a resolution, I have decided that I want to get out shooting more this year. For a number of reasons, the last couple years I haven't made it to either the range or the woods, and I aim to fix that.

I'm planning on taking some classes as soon as I can, but in the meantime, I'm looking to gather up some good resources towards bettering myself as a shooter, rather than just going out and making noise. I'm getting a shot timer and a few target stands, and my goal is to get out and do 200-250 rounds once a month. My focus will be on my carry guns; Glock 19 and 43. I'll probably work the AR every couple of months too.

So, I'd like to devote a theead to training resources found on the web, and I'd be interested in Opchan's input.

The obvious one that I already have bookmarked is www.pistol-training.com.

What other good sources are out there? Drills? Targets? YouTube channels?

Thanks!

Yeah, I've got Magpul's handgun downloaded, and I think I have the Panteo Adaptive Handgun with Travis Haley around somewhere too. Honestly though, I think I'm fairly well prepared as far as the weapon manipulation goes, just need to get the reps in. Never hurts to revisit content though.

And yeah, Jessie Whateverthefuck is pretty damn smokin, I'm just not sure I can get past her drawl. Like...it works for some women, it really does. I'm not so sure she's one of them though. But eh, yeah, would hit. Would marry and then subsequently divorce when she started banging her team coach again or whatever.

But yeah, like I think Doomguy said in another thread, a woman who knows her way around a gun with a good level of confidence instantly goes up a point or two on the good ol' 10 scale. There were actually a couple cuties at the ASI match I shot. Potential exists.

Shot a 2-gun competition today. First time ever. Had a lot of fun even though I wasn't anywhere close to winning. First time shooting a plate rack and a Texas Star, and both large and small poppers. Still, managed to do alright. The match was split into "open" and "tactical" division with the majority of the field in tactical, including myself. Just 13 out of 51 shot open. And out of 51 names on the score sheet, it was only 43 scored shooters due to 3 DQs and 5 no shows.

So, ranked #13 in my division, #21 overall. Had one procedural where I stepped outside the box to get a shot. Just couldn't barely see the damn target from the box and overcorrected when I tried to get to the corner of the box. One failure to neutralize (Neutralizing requires either 1 A zone hit, or 2 outside the A hits) was my only other penalty, otherwise I shot it clean.

Ran the Glock 19 for my handgun, XS Big dots on it and an extended mag and slide release but otherwise stock. For my rifle I ran my PBEAR MKII. 16" BCM stainless upper with KMR handguard, Geiselle SSA, A2 stock and ACOG. I really liked the ACOG for this shoot. Even though there were was a wide spread (3 to 100 meters) of rifle targets, it worked for everything. Used the Bindon Aiming Concept thing they always talk about to use the ACOG like a collimator sight and it worked great. Consistent hits doing it that way even on 1/2 IPSC targets at various ranges. Nice and fast too. Just had to aim a tad high to account for the zero and height over bore, but I didn't have a single miss on short range targets.

But yeah, I got smoked. They had several of the local "Pro" teams show up for the match, and even Rainier Arms' team came down from Seattle to shoot, plus a lot of the teams shot the match yesterday too (two day event, each day scored as a standalone match) so those guys had an extra leg up on shit today. Oh well.

Gotta find some more stuff to shoot around here. I think I'm getting a bug.

Outstanding. It begins.

> Texas Star
I love shooting the Texas Star but hate resetting it.

> Bindon Aiming Concept
We typically shoot rifle at 75-ish yards and I found the ACOG to be slower than irons or a RDS. The ACOG is a fucking fantastic sight but kinda sucks for competition use. Either a V-mag scope or red dot is the way to go. Hell, if you've got good eye sight, even irons are usable.

> But yeah, I got smoked.
There's always someone better than you. I've got video from most of my shoots, and I was fucking slow. It takes probably 10 shoots to really get into it. Just learn from the fast guys.

Yeah, I suck with irons though and the BAC was working well for me. Like I said, for short range shots I was using it like a collimator sight and focusing on the target with my left eye. As soon as I had a splash of color on the target (a little highish on said target) I'd squeeze off a pair (or maybe three shots). None of my rifle targets had a FTN or FTE and I didn't hit any noshoots, so it worked pretty ok for me. Given that my other option was to run my Aimpoint Micro T1 or PRO, it was a pretty conscious choice to do it this way. So yeah, it very well may have been faster to use another method, maybe 45* irons or something, but this method worked ok for me, and it's kinda nice to have placed how I did running the gear I was. I mean shit, I was running an A2 stock as well. I think, skill wise, I'm a long way away from my equipment being the deciding factor in the outcome of my shooting, so for the moment I'm holding off on building up a rifle for the purpose of competition.

I've been looking at that Primary Arms Platinum 1-8x though. That'd be pretty tits. Or a 6x magnifier in a side flip mount to throw behind my T1. Had a 4x that got ripped off out of my car and loved it. Just gotta justify the dosh for one or both of those things.

As an aside, I had a Hazard 4 Overwatch rifle bag I got for a steal that I used for the competition and it was so fucking perfect for the job.

Also, just as a note of lulz, one of the other guys running the comp ran it with an M1A and a 50 cal Deagle. Always knew when he was up to the line, even when he was on a different stage.

I've never owned an M9 or any other Beretta product for that matter, but Ernest Langdon posted a thread on PF proposing a special run of M9s that turned into real thing within a couple months. They can be pre-ordered on Bud's.

https://pistol-forum.com/showthread.php?26789-Special-Run-Beretta-M9-Project

https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=411557877

Granted, there's a lot of other customization options out there that some folks would prefer, i.e. Wilson Combat's package, and if I hadn't already hopped on the polymer striker bandwagon for carry (first with the M&P 9, and now the P320) I'd probably be looking at the P4 for a DA/SA instead.

However, since I didn't mind the M9 too much while I was in the military, I like the idea of having one for around 700bux that was manufactured with what seems likely to be the last batch of service M9s to come out of the plant in Tennessee.

I seriously doubt that.

Robocop-ish guns have been made in the past & were never really popular.

Can you spot whats wrong with this picture?


Cringe aside, revolver thread I guess. I just bought an MR73 yesterday. The more I read about them, the more "Swiss" they feel to me. It feels like a very high polish, beefier version of my S&W 10 (Thanks again, RaceMixer). I've always been an automatic fan, but I've come to really appreciate the trigger on revolvers (Well, except on my Nagant), I feel like I can get more accurate than with a Glawk if I put in the range time, but the downside is .38Spc feels a lot more flippy than 9x19, ignoring the obvious capacity issues. Either way, I'm no revolver expert, but they're fun. Anyone got wheelgats to show off?
>> No. 104977 ID: 19518e
I don't like how the photographer stuck a shotgun shell to prop the gun up, I think it looks prettier when the propping is done out of sight. Not sure if that's the "what's wrong with this picture".

I have to say I'm not much use in this kind of thread as I don't own any revolvers despite my fond feelings for S&W revolvers in general.

A good friend of mine got a 5 shot 44 Magnum S&W Model 69, if we go shooting at some point I will take pictures and stuff. It's a light 44, so it'll be fun as hell. I found his Model 29 with the 6" barrel to be a soft, friendly, and gentle recoiling affair even with his 300 grain bear-hunting hot loads (he travels to the USA for that with the proper permits and everything, RCMP pls do not shoot his dog).

As for me, in the (hopefully not too) distant future, I want to get a few S&W revolvers like the 8 shot .357 and a .460 S&W, but I haven't settled on barrel length for the latter... I will most likely get a longer barrel with no porting or anything. I doubt the gun will have much bite in the first place, so if possible I would like to have a 6" barrel for the .460 S&W with no brake or compensation to suit my taste. Not sure how that will work out honestly with the horse cops but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Why does a french gun feel swiss to you? :)

As an aside, the stupid thing newbies often to do MR-73s is to incorrectly assemble spring n°141 when putting the side plate back on. It easily misaligns itself if you do not take care with it.

As for the MR-73, the rubber grips may be kinda ugly, but they soften up the recoil a lot.

The thought of anyone running .38Spl through an MR-73 makes me sad, considering the gun's history and design requirements. :(

My MR-73 has never shot a .38Spl in its entire life and never will!

I'm filled with the need to fill a void in my collection (and life): I want a high quality shotgun.

This quest started with trying to find (or make) a suitable classic looking Ithaca 37 (either already SBS, or make it into one). That didn't go anywhere. Ithaca doesn't export to euroland, and I'm having trouble finding a suitable donor gun to SBS (or even to find someone willing to SBS the gun for me since due to regulations it has to be reproofed etc, meaning paperwork & wasted time going to the test bench/proof house which would cost more than the actual cutting & refinishing).

Other alternatives were visited:
Browning has an Ithaca sibling, so that was the first stop. Various features and components were not really to my liking though, missing that special M37 look.
Mossbergs have a handy lefty friendly safety, so I looked at those next. Turns out their finish is really shitty.
Remingtons, well, let's not even go there. I've seen too many Remington things fail in the past 10 years that I'm not willing to touch them anymore.
Winchester was next. SXP is a basic no nonsense shotty made in Turkey, but turns out it's actually has more than it's share of problems if jewtoob is to be believed. Including at least two instances of slamfiring with the safety on. So that's out.

With time, interests shifted and eventually brought me to the Benelli M3 Tactical (~20", ghost ring sights, classic stock) & Benelli M3 Entry (~14", ghost ring sights, usually telescopic stock). Because why the fuck not? It's both a pump and a semi, filling two needs at once.

Considering Benelli Defense Italy just released the M3 A1 this year, I doubt it's going out of production in the EU. They also have too much law enforcement market to just stop providing spare parts.

Winchester has always been my favorite shotgun brand. My dad has several pumps that are older than I am (30+ years) that run really nicely. I've taken a look at the guts of the SXP and it's pretty similar to the old 1300, just made with more modern techniques.

I'd suggest looking around for some old 1300 Speed Pump shotguns. They can be had for chump change.

If you gotta have NIB, which I totally understand, I'd suggest looking at the SXP again.
The issues were due to a production SNAFU in 2015, and limited to 3 1/2" Chambers. FWIW my buddy has an old 870 that was his father's first gun, and I've seen it fall over from resting against a tree, and fire with safety on.

If you're willing to spend Benelli money on a gun, then I'd look at the the FN P12 if you want the tacticool, next.

The P12 is around ~$700, the SXP Defender considerably cheaper at ~$450, in the US.

All that said, you do you. Just trying to help a brother out.

The point is moot by now, since I've already requested the permit for a Benelli M3. Can't use that permit for anything else.

Nice.

Unfortunately, it keyholed 40 shots in a row of Sellior & Belliot (sp?) ammo.

The rifiling is still clean, what else could cause this difficulty?

Ammo would be the first thing to check by trying other brands/loads. Maybe S&B derped and used .308 bullets, it would be an easy mistake that would be hard to notice from a manufacturing point of view.

Kinda of reminds me. I don't know if any of you remember but years ago I was setting out to make a .45 Enfield out of one of those Ishapore .410 but ended up giving away the rifle to Lei, for reasons.

Fast forward to earlier this year and I finally got to build one on a butchered Golden State Arms Enfield. I've been busy fulfilling my dream gun list lately.

If size/concealment is a concern, you could go with a sling-bow with some strong elastic.

It won't be as strong as a bow and probably even slower to reload but maybe that doesn't matter. People make a fuss over the psychological effect of being shot making people stop, drop or run away because of what we all see on TV and the movies and I don't think that's a reliable way to stop a threat, but I imagine suddenly hearing a THWAP, feeling a sharp pain and seeing an arrow sticking out of your chest is an existentially introspective experience.

Hello /k/, it's been a while.

Help me decide/find an edc knife. I need something unique. I need a larger blade, but still something slim to carry. I don't mind if it's a friction folder, assisted opening or liner lock.

My beloved Spyderco Endura has been lost and I've finally decided to start searching for her replacement.

I have always wanted a Spyderco Roc or a Benchmade Osborne. I'm looking to spend no more than $200.

I've missed you guys. I hope you're all well.

Does it lock fine if you push it into place? If so, there's probably sand in the cut out for the Needs Work's SpeedSafe spring binding it and preventing full movement.

Dunno about the internal structure/design of a Needs Work because I've never owned one, but taking it apart and cleaning it shouldn't be an issue. Most A/O SpeedSafe Kershaws either have a cut out with the SpeedSafe spring captured inside of it while a plate going over it, but some just have it resting in the G10/handle material (my Speed Bump was like this).

If you do take it apart, use decent Torx bits (Wiha is best) of the "correct" size. Most Kershawks are going to have T-8 or T-10 screws for the pivot and T-6 or T-8 for the body. Most pocket clips are also T-6 size.

Also, when you take it apart, clean it, lube it, ect. - take some grease-like lubricant (something with the consistency of Vaseline would be best) and smear the ever loving shit out of the SpeedSafe cavity mechanism before you re-assemble. Kershaw/ZT does that from the factory and it helps prevent moisture/crude from interfering with the spring and also had the added benefit of not letting the spring rattle obnoxiously.

If you absolutely don't want to take the knife apart, take the knife and throw it into some Dawn dish soap or some penetrative oil for a few hours and then take it to a water bath and blow the ever-loving-fuck out of it with a high pressure air compressor under water. Then immediately dry thoroughly and oil.

Just opening and closing it over and over again, it seemed to get better, and then it got a bunch worse. I probably do need to take it apart. Thanks for the info.

They just discontinued the HK branded Benchmade knives, so you can snag them up pretty cheap while they last.

Did they put the blade on backwards?

The Rurouni Kenshin model.

Fortunately they're made by Benchmade lol.

As far as I know it was made in Poland, put in a box, stayed in a box for 60 years, and then I bought it. From what I can tell, it hasn't been refurbished or used in any way aside from my gentle white-gloved TLC.

I should have bought the other one right next to it, at the time they were wrapped so I didn't get that good of a look at them and thought 350 bucks for was about as much as I'd pay for a nugget. It was gone the day after, I'm still kicking myself over it.

Been meaning to drift the sights over because it does shoot well enough.

I don't often want to take it out for fear of scratching it or something... I know it's "just an M44" but it's in such good shape I can't help but baby it.

I have seen those cherry factory fresh Polish M44 carbines made in the '50s and immediately crated away as they were obsolete the day they were made. 50+ years later, these blonde stock Mosin-Nagants were in big demand by collectors.

The nation of Poland began manufacturing their clone of the Soviet Model 1944 Carbine ( M44 ) in 1950, and according to Terence Lapin, author of The Mosin Nagant Rifle, production of this carbine ran until at least 1962. http://www.mosinnagant.net/global%20mosin%20nagants/Polish-M44.asp
