[QUOTE=Jimmaye;34555252]Faze youtube has this amazing thing called a search bar, try it some time yeah? Also another good channel is lifesizedpotato he mostly collects weird looking pistols, disasembles them, reviews them and a some history on them etc great quality channel.[/QUOTE] I did that, I tried youtube.com/channelname and nothing was found. So someone is misspelling these, though I did find lifesizedpotato, spelled actually lifesizepotato.
theARMORYchannel just puts me in hysterics every time I watch it. His stuff also makes FANTASTIC parody material. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaRKi-qkMV4[/media]

[QUOTE=PrusseluskenV2;34549958]Older Gerber stuff is good, but new productions are pretty tame (just like e.g. Remington).[/QUOTE] I don't keep up to date on knives, I'm basing my opinions on other people's Gerbers from the 90s, so yeah

Went to the range today. Lots of fun, the Cowboy rifle was my favorite. I need to tune myself up with the Glock though, I don't know what my problem was.

The ones that I find through my searching run about that or around fifty bucks more, so you've found a rather good deal. Does it come with anything else? [editline]5th February 2012[/editline] By the way, has anyone here ever done a private purchase? I'm incredibly nervous, and I know we're meeting in a public place, but still, any suggestions?

The last FTF gun buy I did was in a restaurant parking lot. And don't advertise it. Don't wave the weapon around, or make any obvious indications that you're looking at a weapon. Some people get spooked easy.

I've got a few friends willing to come with me and I've already arranged for it to be in a public place.

Some people get spooked easy.[/QUOTE] Nothing illegal about conducting a private sale as long as you're following the same protocol and laws as a regular retail buy. my main tip is just be extremely cautious, if it does not feel right do not go for it. I knew a guy who said the person said go to one location and then changed it at last second. His gut told him something wasn't right and just told the guy he was no longer interested and couldn't make it. He didn't go, and later on in the week he saw a warning/news article that someone was robbed by a armed suspect in the same exact location the dude changed it too.
[QUOTE=ewitwins;34562667]By the way, has anyone here ever done a private purchase? I'm incredibly nervous, and I know we're meeting in a public place, but still, any suggestions?[/QUOTE] Yes, several. Talk to the seller on the phone first to get an idea of what they're like, and to make sure they're not shady. I suggest meeting in a public place such as a Walmart parking lot. Some people will get scared if they see someone with a gun, so just park far away from everyone else, and the other person can park next to you. When inspecting the gun, sit in your car and do it. Don't just take it from the seller and start looking at it in the open because then someone will probably see it and call the police.

I can understand stuff WWII-era and older, but I doubt this stuff is pre 1960's, probably from the 70's. [editline]6th February 2012[/editline] And as far as private sales go, just don't be a retard, meet in a public-ish place and is possible, write up a bill-of-sale. Last time I bought a gray market gun I used a bill of sale forum, mainly detailing the serial number and condition of the weapon so if need be it can be referenced.

The guy sounded pretty normal over the phone, and he lives in one of the wealthier parts of Arizona. When I asked him if he had any objections to selling to an 18yr old because it was a private transaction he sounded rather confused and said something along the lines of "why would I, it's the law" and he also said he requires two different forms of Arizona ID, so it sounds decently legit. [editline]6th February 2012[/editline] Actually, one more question: Check or cash?
[QUOTE=Esrange;34566641]Who buys old ammo? I can understand stuff WWII-era and older, but I doubt this stuff is pre 1960's, probably from the 70's.[/QUOTE] Always a market for this stuff, plus he can hold on to it for a while and sell it later. It was made by the Olin Mathieson chemical corporation. Which was founded in 1892, then they began making ammo in 1898. Then they opened up a brass mill for the war, later on afterwords they went to more tailor-made stuff for more quality of ammo. In 1931 they partnered up with Winchester to soon i guess go bankrupt or something like that due to some dodgy choices. If I understand right they sold that area of the company off in 1931. Seeing as that box has original company name and does not say any other company's name it may be from the early 1900's. It is a vintaage box though, it may not be worth a whole not. But it looks fairly decent condition and has ammo with is till. So that may up the value, but there isn't anything overly amazing about it. Still cool.

[editline]6th February 2012[/editline] Actually, one more question: Check or cash?[/QUOTE] Cash, anyone with a lick of sense will not accept a check. I sure as hell wouldn't, what is to stop someone for passing a hot check. They get the gun and when i go to the bank the check bounces, not cool. Just keep the cash on you, don't take it out till you've both agreed to the sale. If you got a buddy with you, you should be fine. ALSO, get the idea of someone coming from a weather area is a legit or good guy. Rich assholes are just as bad a poor assholes, an asshole is an asshole and if they're going to scam they'll do it no matter what background of area.
Alright, sounds good. How does this look as a Bill of Sale? [url]http://texasguntrader.com/billofsale.pdf[/url] [url]http://www.freebillofsaleform.org/freebillofsaleform/Gun-bill-of-sale.rtf[/url]
I like the second one more.
Bill of sale never hurts, I like the second one it is more like a legal document. Use the second one.

[QUOTE=massn7;34552557]As promised, my new Sig! .40 SP2022. Threw in my 1911 as a bonus :v: [img_thumb]http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/nn137/outofideas7209/sigand1911.jpg[/img_thumb] And in fine Facepunch Firearms tradition, pens through the trigger guards.[/QUOTE] I showed that pic to a friend to admire the 1911, and he questioned the pen thing. So I briefly informed him of the story behind it. He loved it so much he decided to give me some pics as his contribution.

What is the original story behind the pen-in-trigger?
[QUOTE=cardfan212;34568027]What is the original story behind the pen-in-trigger?[/QUOTE] Someone posted a picture of their guns held up with pens in the trigger-guard. This caused a fellow FP'er to freak out about trigger safety or something along those lines. It was then followed by post after post of people taking pictures of their guns with pens in the trigger-guard. :v:
I think I posted the pic that started it all. [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/bf6kr.jpg[/IMG]
Which lead to a bit of "omgwtfbbq trigger discipline/safety/bullshit".
OMG TRIGGER DISCAPLINE PEOPLE!
I was going to not post in here until i got my firearms id card but my dad informed me i should hold off until we *hopefully* get a new chief of police so its not such a pain to get the card. So uh hi.

[QUOTE=download;34570595]I'm still waiting for my premission to train from SA Police[/QUOTE] Our government is useless at everything to do with guns. I bet there's some fat bastard who takes 6 hours to approve each damn permit and then they have to take a shit/drink coffee/suck on their fucking maccas between every single permit.
