In all seriousness though, if it passes, giggle-switch guns would be far cheaper, and you'll probably see some intrepid entrepreneurs striking it rich with the new business opportunities this presents. If you know a few machinists (or are one) and feel like dealing with the hassle of incorporating your business, there's money to be made. Or the current big manufacturers will dominate the market because of their current military hardware production, but that's beside the point.

Ive taken her shooting a few times.
User avatar #9225 - Zarke (10/30/2014) [-]
Well, you mentioned that you want to get her a handgun for personal protection. If you expect her to practice regularly and get the hang of controls and manipulation, I'd suggest an all-steel 9mm semi-automatic of some sort (A CZ 75 of some sort has a good reputation). The weight and size shouldn't be an issue if she plans to carry it in a purse (stress the importance of ease of accessibility; you don't want it buried under whatever she'd keep in there in a stressful situation), and it softens recoil if she's not incredibly experienced.

If she's not expecting to practice regularly, a double-action revolver is popular. Some people might say stick to .38spc, but I'd say go for a .375mag chamber. You can still load it with .38spc, but it allows her to step up to those higher-powered loads when she feels more comfortable with her firearm without needing to buy a whole new piece.

Both are sound choices for a first firearm. Savage rifles are also worth looking into. They're relatively cheap, but the accuracy is good out of the box.

But those are all the things I'll name-drop. If I spout off too much, it'll just get your head spinning with all the possibilities.

i dont think that could work tho
User avatar #10952 - Zarke (12/29/2014) [-]
I spent a lot of time thinking this one through. The action would be bulky as hell (and probably crazy stiff), but if you removed the gas systems (to prevent the action from cycling with each shot) and recoil springs (so you could actually operate the thing with any semblance of comfort) from most gas-operated belt-fed machine guns (instead of some blowback/recoil-operated action), you'd pretty much just have a belt-fed straight-pull bolt-action rifle. From there, it's just a matter of using a lever to actuate the bolt instead of whatever charging mechanism is currently in place. It'd be a lot of pointless engineering, but it could be done.

But that leads to a slippery slope, where once you slide to the bottom you've bought yourself an M2 machine gun and a small artillery piece. In my opinion, every self-defense decision you make is a compromise of sorts. You think of your practical "worst case" scenario and plan for that. Of course there's something worse that you'd be under-prepared for, but eventually you draw a line and call it "good enough".

So don't encourage training/use to get comfortable with more effecting weapons? 9mm does kill but so does .17hmr. the only reason why 9mm is used alot is because you can't carry long gun ammo in a handgun. But since he is not carrying it(which is a whole different story) why not go for the best tool?

The type of arthritic granny who'd step down to a 9mm? I dunno.

And I wouldn't call 9mm a "bare minimum". I see it get a lot of heat, but it's undeniable that 9mm saves peoples' lives all the time. It's very often pulled out of corpses. People even trust their lives with .380ACP, which is a significant step down from that. Sure, it's far from ideal, but it's still a chunk of lead traveling fast enough to go in one end of a body and out the other.

And barrel length does have an impact on muzzle energy. Maybe not a whole lot after 6" or so, but it will squeeze the last bit of juice out of the powder.

I don't disagree with your evaluation of pistol-caliber carbines compared to SBRs (though the legal issues with them are a needless hassle), but they have every right to "limit" themselves to something they feel comfortable using within the confines of their own home. Whatever concern they've got, whether it's "over-penetration" or "blinding muzzle flash" or "osteoporosis-geriatric-I'm-a-weak-suckybaby recoil tolerance", they should only use what they feel comfortable with.

someones life in Self Defense = use bear minimum cuz he likes 9mm.......what?


also wtf barrel length? are you retarded? there is almost no benefit to have a longer barrel with a pistol cartridge, the only reason why MP5 type weapons were made was to be small and quick to use. Now that we have SBRs its pointless. On that note the person does not need to limit themselves in there own home.

Faggot OP blocked me lol, he is butthurt.

You are correct about the Prohibition. I was thinking about the 19th Amendment.

User avatar #8 to #7 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
I'll disagree with that amendment and point that back to the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

As far as I can see, something denying women a political voice (part of Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness) shouldn't be in there anyways, and I'm glad that society has progressed past that point.

Any gun can go into the wrong hands. Not just "so-called" ARs (which in reality is a scare-term used to describe semi-automatic rifles with scary-looking furniture). Remember that Virginia Tech massacre? Committed with handguns (using 17 10-round magazines at that). Columbine? Shotguns/handguns.

There are millions of these "assault rifles" in the U.S. The vast, vast, VAST majority of which are not used in crime and likely never will be.
User avatar #13 to #12 - vanoreo (02/12/2013) [-]
I for one think we should just get rid of guns all together sometimes...

But that would be incredibly hard, impractical, and guntoting rednecks would get mad.
User avatar #14 to #13 - Zarke (02/12/2013) [-]
Well, that's pretty well impossible and would likely do no good. You'd have to extract everybody from the country, overturn all the soil, search every nook and cranny, and force everybody to walk back in one at a time through metal detectors.

Secondly, not just rednecks. When there's almost a gun for every person in the U.S., you can't generalize such a large number of people as "gun-toting rednecks". People from all walks of life collect, shoot, protect themselves with, hunt with, and compete with firearms. I mean, what about recreational shooters? We aren't harming anybody, and you're arbitrarily robbing us of our hobby because you don't like guns. That goes right against our rights to Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
