The grain of bullet you can use in an AR-15 is generally limited by two variables.
The length of the round can effect whether or not the round will feed from the magazine. Heavier rounds generally lead to a cartridge with a longer overall length. O…
Does it matter?
There is no significant difference between 9x19 and .357 Magnum.
Bullet diameter is practically the same and bullet weight is the same. The .357 Magnum does have, maybe, 150 feet-per-second over the 9x19 but it really does…
Yeah this is pretty much correct, though I don't know the exact amount.
But launchers themselves like the M79 and M203 are also considered DDs.
DD laws are just about as nonsensical as AOW laws, because the Street Sweeper and USAS12 (both…
Anything over $325 is a rip off, because once you cross that line you are only a couple bucks away from AK territory.
Granted if the stripper clip aspect is appealing to you, you may feel like going as high as $400. But be aware that anyone asking …
I don't see why you don't believe him as they are all standard rifles.
The Norinco 56 is the only rifle that really jumps out on that list and it isn't like there is only 5 of them in the world. They are easy to find, but they are on the e…
Comparing military ball ammunition between the two systems, the 5.56 round that the M16 fires is always more terminally effective due to it's early tumbling and fragmentation over the bimetal jacket 7.62x39 ammu…
It's funny you mention not being able to hit with .45, but can with a .357.
I can't hit shit with any revolver, but I can make fist sized groups at 25 yards with a .45 1911 and I hit clay pigeons at 50 yards with my USP9.
I really wish I could sho…
.40S&W is one of the worst handgun calibers ever created.
It penetrates less than 9mm and has a smaller wound channel than .45ACP.
It also has way more muzzle flip than comparable pistols in 9mm and .45ACP, and it tends to be really hard on mo…
9mm is the best handgun caliber.
The only thing .357 Magnum has on 9mm is that the .357 goes about 150 feet-per-second fast.
Otherwise bullet diameter is pretty much the same (9mm = .355") and bullet weight is the same for defensive loads (9m…
Ruger P-series are solid guns for the money.
They are a little bulky, but they are usually extremely reliable.
Only other pistol that competes with it in the same price range would be a police trade in S&W 5906.
It's a pistol, made by H&K.
I hope that clears things up as far as its suitability as a defensive weapon :D
Does yours have the LEM trigger pack?
But, yeah, you can not beat H&K pistols for anything. They are truly the best pisto…
H&K is your best bet.
H&K makes the highest quality and best engineered pistols, period.
The "H&K treats customers like shit" is an internet rumor, they will take care of you if there is an issue.
Also hkparts.net s…
Large Pistol and Large Pistol Magnum primers differ mainly in the fact that the Magnum primers produce a hotter spark and lead to more reliable ignition of the powder in very cold temperatures, Magnum primers are also to be used if you are loading a…
Dude, shut up.
Also, M16/AR15 platform all the way.
The M16 is much more ergonomic and is infinitely more capable of being tailored perfectly to the job it needs to do. Even with stubby 11.5" barrels it is still pretty re…
If you are in the US and in need of a good anti-stab vest, I can recommend this.
Be advised that it has no protection against any ballistic threats.
If you are in need of a quality ves…
This is great advice as well and figured it was worth repeating.
The .40 gives you nothing over the 9x19 and .45 except less capacity, snappy recoil, and it beats the hell out of guns it is chambered in.
Here is a decent reference to how …
The grip geometry has to be large enough to get a solid grip on or you will not be able to shoot a pistol well.
I would say the pocket .380s are about the worst gun for a beginner to start on as the sharp recoil impulse promotes flinching …
Yeah you can get one for $30.
And since shot placement matters over everything, maybe that's what you should do.
Dirtysanchez is well regarded as an expert on firearms and terminal ballistics, so anything he says is obviously well researc…
If shot placement is so important, why do you just carry a pellet pistol?
I mean, put it through someone's eye and they will most likely die, right?
So, why even own anything but a pellet pistol?
H&K made this when GLOCK was still making curtain rods:
The "Z" making denotes at as the civilian model.
So, H&K was the first company to come out with a double stack, polymer framed pistol that was marketed to…
No, I don't own any .380 pocket pistols.
They are unreliable and in an unsuitable caliber.
If you can't hit a target on the range in a recreational setting, how do you think you will perform under stress?
Anything made by Ruger that has a polymer frame is junk.
Anything invented by Keltec, then copied by Ruger, is even a bigger piece of junk.
You can trust your life to an unreliable welfare pistol if you want, I don't care.
Seriously just get the GLOCK 19 or USP Compact.
Anybody telling you those aren't good choice is just looking to troll.
Don't buy into the "if you learn or a GLOCK, you won't be able to shoot other guns" or whatever the fuck that…
Here is a basic rundown of the Muslami religion.
Over in Egypt or whatever there is this really really large pig named The Moohammed. It's basically the god of Muslams, they worship it as the "sacred pig" and they get really mad at people…
- It is pretty sick and twisted to compare a PSL to an M21 or USMC DMR. The M14 based DMRs print groups tighter at 100 yards than the majority of PSLs will do at 25 yards. I have talked to a guy with a Dragunov Tigr and he said 2 inches at …
From reading up on recent AR15.com threads and asking around, it seems the problem is still present.
I have heard of people swapping out a rifle 4 times only to end up with nothing but rifles that keyhole, and then have Century tell them "too …
The PSL and the AR15 are two completely different rifles, they are not even remotely similar and really can't be compared.
And I guarantee my pencil barrel AR15 carbine will group better than your PSL at any distance.
The PSL does nothing…
He was referring to ALL cartridges firing bullets in the .30" diameter range, what he said made perfect sense.
It's like saying .35 caliber pistol rounds, this could include:
