What not to wear...for guns
Found this article and thought it was interesting. Probably some things in here that some of the newer members here should take into account :) and it's kind of funny.

Can a toy guns be useful?
I am talking about countries where you can't get a gun, or situations and people who do not have one. If you can get one, then by all means get a real one.
Guns are obviously a powerful visual deterrant. If you want to rob someone, and he pulls a gun on you, you are going to think twice before attacking. As a matter of fact, a good number of robberies are performed with toy guns(or airsoft ones).
Google toy gun robberies for examples.
This proves that a lot of people can not find a visual difference between the real thing and some toys.
Now, could a toy gun be used in a bug out/bug in situation as a protection from panicking looters? Just vawing it around could discourage human foes from attacking.
Though, if they are armed with real guns they might feel threatened and kill you instead of robbing.
Law enforcement during panic won't be happy either(but then again, they wouldn't be happy with the real gun too).

Couple of questions for the Americans
Though the answers to these questions are of little practical significance to me given that I live in the UK, I'm still interested to know people's thoughts...
1) In the old British spy show The Man From UNCLE, the Walther P38 is modified with a dtachable scope, extended barrel with silencer and a stock, basically making it into a small collapsible rifle. Do these modifications exist for the P38?
2) What are people's opinions on the MATEBA Model 6 Unica? I think it's one of the most aesthetically pleasing handguns I've ever seen, but how about it's use?

I want to see what everyone is packing on a 'patrol' type mission. Envision that there is some kind of SHTF/World Chaos/Rosie O'Donnell streaking naked scenario.
Imagine you need to patrol your AO, 5 miles out and 5 miles back.
I want to see if you go minimalist or full out BOB for your gear.

About drop legs.....
It's the naive teenager speaking, but I went to the range and I got a mix response on placement of holsters.
I use a hip holster because the hip is a really strong part of the body, I'm mainly worried about fatigue on my thighs of I go drop downs.
Anybody use thigh holsters and pros and cons?

MrK's Teenage Friend Gear
My close friends have trusted me to take care of a teenage boy. I thought he was some spoiled loser, but he actually is pretty cool and likes to go to 3 gun comps. We talked about plans and now this is his stuff. Keep in mind he's 15 and a A

Your opinion is biased, and here's why
You cannot disagree, a bow (and a sword for that matter) is way more silent than a gunshot, even if the gun is suppressed. And, don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about a .22LR, I mean a 7.62mm, or something along those lines.
Also, I do know what I am talking about, I've been practicing archery for a fifth year now, and I have swung at and attacked all kinds of 2x4's with different swords LOL. I'm no sword expert in any way, but it is obvious that a swung sword doesn't make the same sound as a gunshot.
Second point, the sound from a .308 is going to get you located at least from a kilometer around, and it's much more distinguishable than the thump of my compound bow, which probably won't be heard if you are sitting in my neighbor's house.
Also, you are right about the range though, I can shoot target as big as an eye socket from further with a gun than with my bow, even though I manage these types of shots pretty often at around 30 meters with said bow (shooting something big as an eye, thought I'd mention to avoid confusion here)
Remember, that while most people can swing a sword without cutting their leg out, these same people probably don't even know where the safety is on a P99, nor how to figure out where the safety is without dropping the mag and inserting the 9mm bullets in the barrel like a muzzleloader.
OK, with this in mind they probably can't shoot a bow either, but hey, if you'd have to choose between a sharp sword and a gun which can't shoot, I bet you'd choose the sword.
*off-topic* It's been quite a while since I was on this forum, and now that I come back to check things out, I read lot of your posts, and you seem to always have either an extremist look at things (like sounds from a sword being swung compared to gunshots), or to have biased opinions and facts (like that Ross Rifle one...)
Hello all, I am turning 17 soon and therefore it is another chance for a new gun! My parents will pay for about $150 towards one and I've got a few ideas.
1. Ruger 10/22- http://www.impactguns.com/ruger-1022-black-wblack-synthetic-stock-special-run-1151-736676011513.aspx
I would only have to pay about $100 so I could easily put upgrades on it. I would only get bigger mags, a scope rail, and a simple red dot or low power scope.
2. S&W SD .40. I already have a Sigma 9mm and it works flawlessly even shooting Tula Ammo which is all I've shot from it. I would get .40 just for a new cartridge and you can still buy bulk easily.
3. Mossberg 500 with 20' barrel and either 7 or 8 round tube so tube was same length as the barrel. I don't really have a shotgun besides one of my uncles which is for duck hunting. I already have my IO Ak47 and Sigma 9mm so this would be the third piece to my "tactical" setup.
4. Taurus .357. I aldo don't have a double action revolver or any revolver bigger than a .22lr and .357 is not too expensive. I also chose this for how the cylinder comes out with the button and not the typical style old ones where you have to eject each case with the rod.
So what do you guys think is best for me? Noting I already have a S&W Sigma 9mm and an IO Inc AK47 so I do not really need another pistol at this moment. I would say my best bet is either the 500 or 10/22 and my dad also wants the 10/22 more for cheap ammo so we could shoot more.
Constructive criticism please and don't give me hell for saying "tactical". Also if there are any cheaper sites that would be helpful. The whole 1 gun store in my area is overpriced and guns are cheaper online.

bb guns vs zombies
hey guys i just wanted to know your opinion on pellet guns vs zombies. now i'm only 16 so i cant legally buy a gun in my state which well downright sucks. But i do own a Cross-man quest 1000x with a 1000 fps which means its technically 1 fps from being a legal firearm now the biggest game i think this thing can take out with one shot is probably something within the size of a dog. not that i would ever shoot a dog lol. im a really good marksman with iron sights up to about 100 yards do any of you think i would have a chance taking out those flesh bags with my pellet gun i have around 850 pellets in my bug out bag 250 are hunting and 500 are hollow point which means it flatens when it hits any thing making a bigger entry and exit wound. so if oyu guys could give your opinion that would be awsome

Did you ever run and log around a master key?
I did on my dads Tavor and after a sprint it hurt my wrists.

I have this sudden urge to get a new 12 gauge with my extra cash. I could either get a Stoeger 3000 Semi-Auto for 150 bucks or a Remington 870 Pump Action for 100. I'm just wondering which you would prefer and if the Semi Auto option is worth the extra 50 bucks
By the way, all I am asking for is your opinion on the guns I stated, which could you THINK I should buy, and why. Nothing else besides.

The Demise of Melee Weapons
The contents of this page are copied from a thread whose topic comes up very often; melee weapons vs. guns. The text is written by Shadowmancer who is, along with many other skills, a professional researcher. =====================================
Guns are useless
By saying this, I may very well burst the bubble, and shatter the daydream held by 90% of those who view this thread. GUNS ARE USELESS. they are loud and therefore attract attention. Even the best silencers cannot hide their sound nearly enough. They run out of ammo. And even if you stock up, it is the end of the world. there will be no more ammo produced. It will be a dwindling resource. And a useless one.
What you WILL need is a large, sharp piece of steel (Sword) or a bat. some sort of melee weapon, complimented by a silent ranged weapon (Bow, high power sling shot). Where as it does not make loud noise to attract attention, and has infinite ammo. create it yourself. So let go of your gun slinging fantasy and accept the truth. Let the butt-hurt commence!

I have a question about .22 LR/ .22Magnum ammo - is it actually powerful enough to kill a zombie? I know this is to do with the power of the firearm as well as the ammunition (an air rifle probably couldn't penetrate a skull no matter what calibre of ammo it was firing), but could a smaller pistol, like say a Beretta Bobcat actually be useful or just an annoyance?

I found a website that sells working replicas of 1800's firearms, I think, anyway it said that using one of
these could give you cancer cause of the lead, could you use one if you use ammunition that doesn't have
lead in it and not get cancer? here is a link. >>>>> http://www.buffaloarms.com/Default.aspx

"I'll get around to them." Projects
I have the depressing habit of coming up with a great project, and then coming up with an equally great project; only to realize I don''t currently have the cash for either. Generally these are guns and gear, but I've had this come up when it comes to building my little club house in the woods (I'll do a separate thread on that).
I think my problem is that I have wine taste, but a beer budget. Nothing wrong with beer at all, but sometimes you just want the fine stuff. In my case I've figured out that I don't like to use lower quality stuff on my things and I'm willing to save up to make the project turn out exactly the way I want.
What are some projects you'll "Get around to eventually." and what projects are you doing now?
My current projects right are as follows.
I'm collecting material to build my own hunting lodge out in the boonies on some family property. Alongside that I'm looking for a cheap, used horse trailer to clean up and make into a poor man's utility camper. Will be done whenever I finish getting lumber and get a few weekends off.
My AK project, which is nearly complete. I've got some cash laid aside for an Aimpoint and some other neat things like a left side charging handle top cover and a Thorntail light mount. I'll be through with this project in a few months.
First Aid project. I'm collecting various medical supplies to keep on hand and in my gear. Will probably be done in a few weeks to a month.
Bullet project. I've got about 2000 rounds of 7.62x39 picked out for a cache, and I'm deciding what other ammo for my other guns I want to store. This isn't ammo I'll be shooting for the most part, this is ammo kept away for a rainy day. Plan to have this done before the end of the election year or any time before ammo prices raise again.
Cont. next post.
