"/k/ - Weapons" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing all types of weaponry, from military tanks to guns and knives.
Welcome to /k/, 4chan's weapons board. Our board centers around weapons, armor, and other myriad military technology. While guns are the primary topic, threads involving any other sort of weapons, from swords and knives to tanks and jet fighters, come up frequently as well. If you're new, we suggest reading the sticky at http://amagicalplace.wikia.com/wiki/Sticky to get acquainted with the board's subject matter.
Before posting a thread, please check our catalog to ensure that a thread about the same topic does not already exist.
/k/ is a board devoted to weapons and military equipment.
Discussions about politics or current events belong on /pol/.

US arrests rightwing militia member said to detain migrants
Washington (AFP) - The FBI has arrested a member of an armed rightwing militia group accused of illegally detaining migrants at the US-Mexico border, officials said Saturday.
Larry Mitchell Hopkins, 70, was arrested for illegal possession of a weapon. His small but well-armed United Constitutional Patriots (UCP) group says it watches the border, stands guard over people who want to hand themselves in to border patrol and pursues those who don't.
New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas described Hopkins, who also goes by the name of "Striker," as a "dangerous felon who should not have weapons around children and families."
"Today's arrest by the FBI indicates clearly that the rule of law should be in the hands of trained law enforcement officials, not armed vigilantes," he added.
Hopkins was said to have been detaining migrants near Sunland Park, New Mexico.
is this a justifiable purchase? seems like a lot for a pistol but i don't know how i feel about pmr-30s as the alternative...

Looking to buy a pic. I was thinking of a sub 2000 or a Ruger PC Carbine, but you /k/ommandos might have better ideas. I already have a Glock 34 so preferably something in 9mm that takes glock mags, but anything else is cool too. I’m probably just gonna use it for plinking and for dealing with coyotes (I live in upstate NY where coyotes are kinda a problem here). And because I live in NY I can’t have anything that looks to spooky if I ever want to see the light of day again.
I'm a recent noguns converted to hasguns and from consuming gun media (gun-jesus and C&Rsenal mostly) I've noticed that they don't like to dry-fire at all. I was educated in guns by fudds and they didn't say anything one way or another about dry-firing. Is the aversion from dry-firing in the things I've seen due mostly to the pieces demo'ed being really old and/or loaned or is there a major mecanical stress put upon the action that isn't there if it has a cartridge in the chamber?

Forces of the unknown have caused our world to merge/combine with a typical fantasy world. Old world governments have managed to hold on to major urban and suburban areas, but rural areas range from fragile peace to complete chaos. People and towns from either side suddenly find themselves in a new realm, and portals going between both worlds are scattered through out the lands.

-melee weapons, bayonets, feldspaten, cossack saber, trench club
-different kinds of artillery, three kinds of gas for attacks
-big, but not too big maps with strongpoints like bunkers or trenches as capzones that give different boni
-sophisticated squad/command and winpoint system, much more variety and options than ie Ro2

I'm a casual shooter getting back into the sport after a decade+ hiatus. Built an AR platform about 6 months ago and have been enjoying it.
Was given grandpappys remmy 30-06 and 270 as they were just found in the attic. He's been dead just over 25 years but it appears they were put away clean and oiled. Good man. Gave them the once over and today shot a few rounds through them. Surprisingly everything is still zero'd in.
Wanting to give the guns an update and hand one back to my father. New optics, possibly furniture, so I can take them deer hunting later on in the year.
Curious what you nibbas would do given this opportunity. I can do basic research but I simply don't have the breadth of knowledge of whats going on in the market currently and shit is way different than it was when I was younger.
Trying to stay around 1K for the optics but was given some suggestions by a friend, so looking at :
Nightforce SHV 4-14X50
Vortex Viper PST Gen2 5-25X50 - leaning towards vortex as the reviews seem to be excellent thus far
Also where are your favorite places to pick up optics other than opticsplanet?
/k/ gunsmiths and armchair experts,
7.62x25mm Tokarev is my favorite handgun cartridge and I love the way it shoots, how plentiful and chap it is and how well it penetrates. How would one go about converting one of the modern, sub-compact, polymer guns to shoot 7.62x25mm Tokarev? Getting a custom barrel wouldn't be so hard but rest of the geometry might be..
Possible? Anyone have some ideas?
First let me explain that I absolutely do believe we have the right to bear arms for hunting and target shooting. That being said, there is simply no reason for a mere civilian to own an assault rifle. It is a weapon literally meant to "assault" an enemy position in times of war. Given that rifles only kill a few hundred people a year in the US, the loss of these guns will be minimal because they are simply not used for self defense. They are used for slaughtering large numbers of civilians in prolific mass shootings. No one is hunting deer with an AR-15. One shot from it and you'd blow the damn thing into pieces, it ruins the meat.
All that being said, why are we continuing to allow these weapons of mass destruction in our society? Let's discuss this issue and find a solution we can all agree on.

Have you forgotten about all of the righteous actions PSA has taken to help defend our God given 2nd amendment rights?
From the beginning PSA has set out on the noble quest to arm America's gun owners with very reasonably priced, quality AR-15 rifles. Ensuring AR-15s, and other arms are, and continue to be in common use.
During the California mag rush PSA was one of the first retailers to accept orders (among RobertRTG, and others). Fulfilling as many standard capacity magazine orders as they could from Friday evening, until just several minutes before the deadline. When California's nefarious attorney general Xavier Becerra lied that no magazines had been imported into the state, PSA formally stepped forward and declared their
most honorable actions.
>On April 3, 2019, my office contacted representatives of Palmetto State
Armory (“PSA”). PSA representatives informed Plaintiffs’ counsel that PSA had
sold significant quantities of magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds to
California. Due to the extremely tight deadlines under which the parties are litigating
this issue and due to the limitations of PSA’s software, Plaintiffs are unable to
provide PSA’s exact figures at this time, but we will file a supplemental declaration
as soon as those numbers are available
Observink of mine advanzig sharpenink setups
Speaking from my own experience I’ve found that many of the guys who served in special units militarily aren’t really that into guns. I work with a couple guys 1 was a Marine Raider the other was Ex-Delta, they both express interest in shooting but openly admit to being disinterested in guns in general. I asked them further about it and they explained that once you do things like pop peoples melons with an anti-material rifle or call in air strikes on positions nothing really compares....which I feel is rather understandable. Not to mention I’ve come to find out both of them have large numbers of firearms given as gifts by the units and one even has a full auto AK bring back from Afghanistan. Another interesting thing I’ve found is these men have no problem discussing stories and missions, they don’t claim to have PTSD from it, and they seem rather proud of what they did. Are average soldiers simply too mentally weak to handle warfare?

I mean you may think I'm just prideful about my countries service rifle but at the same time it's absurd that people continue to mock it for it's unreliability when it stopped being a reality as soon as BAE systems hired HK to rework the weapon system.
>even the Germans couldn't fix it
They literally fucking could, and they did.
Was looking into getting a second gun, My walther is a very nice gun, but I like having some variety.
It seems to be a rather cheap gun one some sites and some versions do get more expensive, so is it a gun worth investing into?
Also is it good for concealed carry? I love my Walther PPK/S, but it is very heavy and jeans with belts can't hold it up on a simple Belt clip Holster.
Also if I can find maybe a better holster that isn't crazy expensive, what kind of holster should I get for Florida laws?
All help is appreciated, just looking for handguns though, I have an Idea for when I start collecting rifles, but I'd rather have a handgun or revolver. Top loading revolvers are pretty cool if you can recommend ones that might be good for conceal carry or fun.
Sorry if I'm asking for a lot /k/ I mostly lurk, but when I posted here years ago about my Walther, people were very helpful, I trust you guys more than most gun stores.
Why did PSA's cheapo Freedom Rifle perform better than the Daniel Defense in AKOU's tests? I don't get it. Isn't the whole point of paying that much on an AR having something extremely reliable that you can take to war?
What is the grandest .22 that exists. Why?
I love yugoslav/Serbian shit how about you anon? What do you spend your neetbux on?
How reliable are these? Looking to put it with a sub2k. Weight shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
Worth it or pointless?
Got some 5.11 ATAC 2.0 at a steep discount the other day (30% off so $69.99) figured they'd make decent hiking/camping boots for the price. Realized they have a "hidden" boot knife pocket and some okay brands aren't that expensive ($12-20 depending on length of blade).
Already have a pack with a PC carbine or a pistol I carry daily, along with a Benchmade folder and Leatherman Multitool, so it's not like I don't already have a knife and self defense weapon.
This is the Udav, say something nice to it
Are gorkas over hyped as hunting and combat garments, or is there actually something to them?
is this officially unobtainium? and if not, how can i get one?
