This crazy guy in a ski-mask attacks you with a Cactus,
WHAT DO TUMBLR?
Obediah vs. Bear Mace
Is bear mace less strong?
This guy looks like he could have kept fighting if this was an attack situation. Not to mention if he had anything in his system.
Yes, I would trust my life on .32.
While I think 9MM with some hydrashok cartridges like I carry in my P1 is a bit better, I am pretty positive that dumping 8 rounds of .32 ACP into someone’s chest/vital area and face/head at close range would if not kill them on the spot stop them up enough so that I could get to a safe place to notify police.
I know a lot of people say it’s not sufficient for self defense, but I think it’s more about training and shot placement. That being said I don’t think carrying a .32 is good for all situations and all CC’ers. I normally carry my P1 or PA-63, but I will probably be carrying my STAR model H more in the summer when it’s too hot out CC a normal sized gun. This allows me to go outside in just a tank top/beater, shorts and still CC something.
Rather odd picture. It shows a soldier with the Korean Daewoo K1 but with a much shorter barrel and side-folding skeleton stock. Only a handful of nations adopted the two Korean firearms in limited service. Most K1’s have a collapsible wire type stock that slides along the side of the receiver, much like the HK collapsible stock. Interestingly the K1 is more akin to the AR-15 because it uses direct gas impingement, standard AR mags and 5.56x45mm. The K2 rifle dumps the direct gas impingement in favor of a piston.
Not gonna lie, I really want a deawoo.

GB MP5 7.62x25
A custom built MP5 chambered in 7.62x25mm Tokarev. It uses PPSh 35-round magazines. It has an extended, permanently attached flash hider to maintain non-SBR length. GB stands for GhillieBear, a well-known HK gunsmith on the HKPro forums. He no longer builds these so the 12 or so he built are all that’s out there. This is not a simple build, the barrels were specifically made for it.
Old & New
A classic German pistol, the Walther PPK, alongside it’s newer polymer descendant, the Walther PPS. Whereas most of the older PPK’s were usually in .32 or .380 ACP, the PPS is chambered in 9mm. As much as I like newer guns, if I was offered a choice between the two, I’d pick the PPK, just so much history behind it.
I like that thumb ridge, those are really nice grips.
One of the rarer SKS variants out there. The rough estimate on how many remain in the world is about 6,000; majority were destroyed by the Albanian government. It’s unique from other SKS models for a few reasons. It has a slightly longer upper handguard, two trapdoors in the stock instead of one for cleaning kits, and most distinct of all is the AK-style charging handle. Also note that the sling attachement is on the side of the stock, not under it. Worth collecting if you find one.
I should have bought the last one of these I found, but I could’t justify buying two rare SKS’s in one go lol
As far as I know, no states differentiate between modern and antique firearms when it comes to conceal carry. I know that firearms labelled as antiques (pre-1899) typically do not require an FFL to purchase, though this may be subject to state laws. Conceal carry of a weapon, though, doesn’t take into account the antique/C&R status of a firearm, only that it is a firearm.
ah bummer, my dreams of CCing 6 flintlock pistols in some anti-gun area are quashed.
So I’ve noticed a trend among sales people at my local gun stores to only suggest sub-compact pistols to customers for conceal carry. I’m by no means bashing pistols like the Ruger LC9 or Sig P290, but I’ve been repeatedly told by salesmen that “you really can’t hide anything bigger than this in our climate” (North Florida). Because of this, I thought I’d share some tips for daily conceal carry.
One of the biggest factors I look for in a conceal carry weapon is slimness. There’s a reason Glock released the 36 Slimline model. Even if a pistol is compact as far as height at length are concerned, if it’s still as thick as a double stack Glock, it’s going to be more difficult to conceal. For reference, here’s me wearing only a thin T-shirt over my M57 Tokarev.
The belt and back pocket print more than the gun itself. Without staring directly at me while I’m standing still, it’s completely concealed. The Tokarev’s thinness makes it incredibly easy to conceal underneath even thin clothing.
It’s almost as big as a full size 1911 (slightly longer with the compensator), yet I can carry it even during Florida’s miserable summers. This is partly because single stack pistols are going to be inherently thinner than double stack models, but also because 7.62x25 is much skinnier than most common conceal carry pistol calibers (.45, .40, 9mm & .380). Kimber’s website shows the Solo Carry (9mm) as being .995” wide without counting the safety, and my Tokarev measures around .810”. While it doesn’t sound like much, it makes a noticable difference.
The holster uses velcro clips that attach to the inside of the belt, so the clip itself sits between the belt and the pants. I can tuck a shirt over the holster and it will be completely hidden. Normal C-clips will still be visible as they attach over the outside of the belt. If you’re just wearing loose clothes over the holster this doesn’t make much difference, but with a tuckable holster, having the clips hidden helps to further decrease visibility.
As for thicker clothing in colder climates, it really lets you get away with carrying whatever you want. Even with lighter wind breakers, proper placement of a shoulder holster makes it completely invisible.
If I can comfortably carry a vz. 61 in Florida’s excuse for winter (it still hits 80 every other day), pretty much any climate throughout the states will allow you to carry your choice of firearm during colder months. With a heavier jacket or parka, it only gets easier. I wouldn’t actually carry like this regularly as the draw isn’t nearly as fast as my Tokarev’s, but a higher quality shoulder rig would alleviate the problem, as would carrying an actual pistol instead of a neutered sub gun.
I’m in no way trying to bash pocket pistols. Kel-Tec and Ruger sub-compacts have been gaining popularity for a reason. It’s quite handy having a pistol that you can simply drop into a pant or jacket pocket. I’m just trying to curb this idea that they’re the only optimal conceal carry option. A high quality holster and proper placement of it allows for the carry of a much wider range of handguns. I use a Comp-Tac Minotaur fit for a Browning Hi-Power 9mm, and have found that carrying it at my 4 o’clock with a forward cant of about ~20-30 degrees gives the best result.
This is the new gun I bought my wife. Traded it for the Rohm and the 380. If shes going to have a self defense pistol, she needs one that will WORK. Especially after I cleaned it and tested the action.
Rifling is perfect, crisp, and clean movement of the parts. Its a BERSA 383 in 380 acp. Loaded with Federal brand JHPs.
4 different and distinct calibers from left to right; .223, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, .458 SOCOM and .50 Beowulf.
Someone should make a lever action in .458 or .50 Beowulf.
ACE Hammer Stock
An odd, if not interesting stock option for your AR (or any rifle with AR stock adapter). The Hammer is a 7 position collapsible stock with a built-in “skull-crusher”. ACE Ltd recommends using the door breacher / “skull-crusher” when the stock is fully collapsed, not extended. The cheek riser is elevated in the pictures, normally you can charge your AR if it’s been lowered. To charge your AR with the cheek riser elevated the stock has to be in the 6th or 7th position.
I think I’ll pass on this part for the AR build too…
I am pretty sure my skull could destroy this thing.
know, going to prison for killing someone? Obvious, no?
Even in states with with junky self defense laws, if someone is shooting at you(an innocent bystander) and you kill them. It would be really hard to find a jury willing to send someone to prison for defending themselves against an armed assailant.
