Matchlocks, wheellocks, handgonnes and black powder cannon.
The hand cannon, or handgonne, is possibly the oldest type of small arms, as well as the simplest type of early firearm, as most examples require manual ignition.

First developed in the 12th century in China, earliest European examples date to the 14th century. http://imgur.com/gallery/q50Ce

Percussion/caplock firearms.
An advancement in ignition systems far more reliable than flintlocks and less sensitive to moisture, a brass hat with a dab of friction-sensitive explosive like mercury fulminate inside that, when struck by the weapon's hammer, sends a jet of flame down the nipple it is over into the main charge of the firearm.
Here is the Derringer percussion pistol that John Wilkes Booth used to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln. The assassination took place at Ford's theater in Washington D.C. on Good Friday, April 14th, 1865. http://tincanbandit.blogspot.com/2014/06/historys-most-notorious-guns.html
Spelled Deringer in this example, Henry Deringer made large caliber short barreled pistols starting in the 1830s and the style were known as Derringers.

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.

I just put $200 for one and it should be coming in pretty soon. I did a little research before hand and chose it over the CZ-75 because it had an ambidextrous safety and a reversible mag release and it was only $10 more. I would have chosen a CZ-97 but 9mm Luger is only $.20/r compared to $.30/r

Should I have picked a CZ-75? I've never held one but I've only heard good things unlike Rock Island, Taurus, or Remington.

Hello, /k/.

I'm in the process of building myself a cabin innawoods, and setting up a reasonably sustainable living space for myself. Right now, I still have a regular apartment and job, but I intend to eventually go full hermit in my cabin and avoid heading into town if at all possible.

What I need are incredibly durable and easy to strip/troubleshoot firearms. I don't care how pretty they are, and I'm willing to trade 'comfort' for 'indestructible'.

Effectively, I want some guns that I can bring with me in the woods and that will easily last 10-15 years if need be without me heading into town (obviously with proper maintenance).

I'm not really interested in bringing more than 3 or 4 guns with me either, ideally

- a pistol/revolver
- a shotgun
- a hunting rifle
- a semi-auto rifle

I owned two Vz58 rifles and extensively shot my buddy's Cz858, and I'm not sold on them even now. Mostly personal opinion, but they often had some design "features" I didn't agree with.

Honestly I can't wait for the T81, it very well could be the rifle Canucks deserve. If OP isn't willing to get a modern Hunter or an AR while he gets a pistol (ARs being governed by the same regulations as pistols) then he could wait to see how the T81 turns out.

SKS go innawoods is still an option, and not a bad one.

Hey buddy. Best of luck to your project.

Pistol: 1911 or CZ or any other 9x19 / 45ACP full metal gun. Sure Clock is good but plastic is hard to fix.

Scattergun: Rem 870 and buy older model with all metal parts. Mossberg is good but I personally don't trust aluminium.

Rifle: Umm... Err... You hunt what? If it's not bigger than Hog or boar i'd say .308 or 7.62x54R. Mosin is cheap and ammo is cheap. Re-barrel the thing and it last's next 100 years. If your game is like moose or elk i'd say something like 30-06 or 45-70GOVT
>diameter x bullet weight x muzzle velocity = stopping power... Bigger the game more the stoppin powah

Semiraifu: AR15 or AK platform. What ever you prefer.

>The multi-purpose hand grenade design will provide both fragmentation and blast overpressure more effectively and safely than its legacy counterparts. Once fielded, Soldiers will be able to select and use a hand grenade with different effects simply by flipping a switch.

So basically a grenade where you can select either concussion or fragmentation. How do you think they'll achieve this?

File 147601914539.jpg - (304.85KB , 1229x1844 , German WW2 grenade magnetic AT Hafthohlladung Panz.jpg )
The German army introduced the Hafthohlladung anti-tank weapon in 1942. This consisted of a shaped charge warhead connected to a ring of metal holding three powerful horseshoe magnets. Issued to infantry, the user would run up to the tank and place the device on any surface to which the magnets would stick. The user would then pull the safety pin and run for safety. The magnets not only held the mine to the vehicle but also provided the correct spacing between warhead and armor, allowing the penetrator jet to form properly. Concerned that the simple design could be easily copied in the USSR, the German army began looking for ways to defeat such a weapon when used against their own vehicles. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zimmerit

File 147601934187.jpg - (1.03MB , 2592x1944 , Zimmerit_Tiger_II_2_Bovington.jpg )
So the Germans applied a zinc paste called Zimmerit to their tanks that would interfere with magnetic grenades sticking to the steel.

Zimmerit was a paste-like coating used on mid- and late-war German armored fighting vehicles during World War II. It was used to produce a hard layer covering the metal armor of the vehicle, providing enough separation that magnetically attached anti-tank mines would fail to stick to the vehicle, although Germany was the only country to use magnetic anti-tank mines in numbers. Zimmerit was often left off late-war vehicles due to the unfounded concern that it could catch on fire when hit. It was developed by the German company Chemische Werke Zimmer AG.
