Is the new ARX or RIP ammo actually worth the exorbitant cost or are ordinary hollow points still good enough?

And then of course there's the 14.9mm SOP, a 1690-grain VLD bullet at 3,350fps. More kinetic energy at the muzzle than a 20x102mm Vulcan (not counting the explosive payload an autocannon round carries), and supersonic to five and a half fucking kilometers.

Makes me wonder what you could do with a lathe-turned osmium-alloy projectile and a 30mm case necked down.

And there is still a decent chance the Cape Buffalo will kill you. Read some stories about hunting the Black Death. Shit they will do to take you straight to hell with them is crazy.

Like how wild boar will be pierced with a wide-bladed spear and still run itself through in its attempt to get at the spearman. So boar spears will have a cross-piece to keep the boar from running down the shaft.

My communist government is declaring all AR-15s assault weapons this coming year, so I want to get a pair of lowers soon and build them later when I have some disposable cash. But I know next to nothing about ARs.

Are there any lower manufacturers that are just complete shit and should be avoided, or should I only concern myself about the internals that I'll put in them?

>> No. 99434 ID: 6ca38e
In fact, that movie may be the reason the AR18/AR180 is on the list, along with the SPAS-12. Nearly all the weapons that were used in that movie ended up listed by make/model in the Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Ban of 1989. Coincidence?
>> No. 99435 ID: 685058
Coincidence? Not at all. There was a hysterical outcry of the police station scene. In The Terminator, where the titular character discovers that his assassination target, Sarah Connor, is in a police station, he tries to bluff his way in, but is refused entry, so he smashes his way in and guns down every cop who interferes with his mission. The Terminator was goal-oriented, you see, but people complained of the tremendous violence in the film against police. Cry me a river, cop-lover. It's a goddamn movie, not an instructional video.
But there was a serious vocal complaint of this scene in 1984 and then bans and heavy regulations were made against assault rifles soon after. This outcry perhaps engendered the scene in Terminator 2 where Arnold has to swear that he will not kill anybody when he goes to spring Sarah Connor out of the nut-house.

Lately I've wanted one of these brass "bottle openers" Are they a gimmick tool or something that could come in handy? I'd carry it in my back pocket.

In Canada one must take care that "bottle openers" made of metal don't have finger holes or else they are defined as "brass knuckles" under the law. This would define the item as a prohibited weapon even if there's a non-weapon reason to carry it.

Plastic knuckles are OK to own but not to carry concealed, and I'd say the same applies to those plastic "stinger" things because there's no arguable use other than a weapon.

As with every other country a sturdy pen won't get a second look and will work as a weapon in a pinch.

Pic related "wrench" is fine. I've tested it and it does work on a bicycle. It also looks like it could be a bottle opener but it's the wrong size. I've passed security checkpoints with it, though I did get a funny look. I have it on good authority that one of these will seriously fuck up a human being.

As something of an aside, you see this issue in lockpicking, too.

Many, many places have laws on the books that make carrying lock picking tools illegal (often *very* illegal) if you're not licensed or actually on a job.

And most lock-picking tools are very mundane items.

In other words, yes, usage defines the category.

Carrying a screwdriver? Pretty normal. It's a screwdriver.

Using the screwdriver to bypass a lock to gain entry to a building not your own? Felony possession of lock picking tools.

Using a screwdriver to bypass a lock, stab the owner of the dwelling, and rape their dog? Well now you're in possession of a deadly weapon AND lockpicking tools. Same item, two charges. Also, you're a sick furry bastard.

Always been a fan of umbrellas, myself. They're way more multifunctional than they look, because people are so used to only seeing them used for one or two purposes. It's still a stick. Also makes you real popular with women when you're the only guy to have the foresight to have one. Remember to get one bigger than you need...

Bit of a bitch to carry due to size/weight, but there's something to be said of the old D-cell Maglite flashlights (thinking back on it, why the fuck didn't Maglite get involved with "COPS"? It was de facto advertising in the 1990s...). Shit flashlights, but my god you wouldn't want to be hit by one of the fuckers. And even though they were aluminum, they were pretty thick and well made and could take a beating.
>> No. 99400 ID: f87148

Aftermarket LEDs and microcontrollers can greatly improve the utility of otherwise obsolete flashlights such as these. I retrofitted one of those big old GI angle head jobs and was rewarded with a flashlight which, while still heavy as fuck, will provide more than adequate light for like two fucking weeks straight, and which is reasonably water-resistant -- all for, like, thirty rupees. I was pleased enough with the results that I plan on doing the same to one of the smaller versions sometime soon.

Went to the shooting range for the first time in about six months. Was terrible.

I need to get something cheaper to shoot. What's the cheapest decent .22 handgun on the CA registry? My Spacegat has gotten too expensive to practice with regularly and I'm sitting on around 4k rounds of LR
>> No. 99333 ID: f87148

Sort by price low-to-high, winnow out anything not Kalifornistan-legal, sift through a few reviews of those you find most appealing, shake well, and serve chilled.
>> No. 99334 ID: 19518e
Not sure what the CA-legal firearms are but I have to recommend the 22/45.


It's a little bit more expensive than the chiappa/taurus/rossi/jimenez/rhom lineup but it'll last forever, it's reliable as fuck, and very accurate. Some will scare you off with "it's hard to take apart/put back together" but if you can type that post you're more than capable of youtube+bit of figuring about and gettin' 'er done.

Ruger Single-Six is a great .22 single-action revolver. Little bit more expensive than the $200 Heritage Rough Rider, but that machined (stainless or blued) frame of the Ruger is worth the extra expense.

Why isn't this a more popular, readily available round? I've been thinking of pic related for home defense, but I'd have to handload all my ammo. Living in commiefornia, they may try to ban that next (they try to monitor how much ammo we have).

.44 special is comparable to .45 auto, I'd wager it's a reliable man-stopper; is this just because everyone uses semi-auto handguns now? And would .44 revolvers and the ammo they fire become more widespread in commiefornia after all the semi-autos fall off the roster or can I expect that our ammo shelves in stores will just be mostly empty?

I swung by the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. Here is a photo from the Hall of Pacific Cultures of the weapons used by the lowland head hunters of New Guinea.

The hoop device is basically a human control pole. This is the description behind it:

Quite interesting- but if we're talking about Pacific islander weaponry, the shark-toothed clubs/lacerators of Hawaiian warriors is about the most distinctive. These were made by fastening shark teeth into grooves along the sides, by means of tying them in place with cordage. I believe the cutting function was achieved through a similar technique as the obsidian bladed macuahuitl of Mesoamerica- the warrior swings his weapon into the target's flesh with most of the cutting edge further than the impact point, and then he pulls the weapon back towards himself, effectively sawing through the target. As such these kinds of weapons can't quite be likened to a sword, and I'd classify them as lacerator clubs (the flat end can be used as a club, of course). They made various kinds of weapons of this sort for different fighting purposes.
