Okay /k/ I need your help. So anyway I recently decided to enlist in the USAF after leaving college (was getting good grades at a good school, but I had no clue what I wanted to do and was not enjoying it at all). Anyway, at first I really wanted to become a linguist because of the good job skills it could give me in the civilian world. However I recently started to think that this would not be a good job for me, first off because of the tech school washout rate (I have always been dedicated when it comes to studying, but foreign language was never something I excelled at) and also because it seems like I would just sit at a desk all day with headphones on (not sure how true this is but it is hard to find info about what linguists do on a daily basis). So now I have been thinking about trying to go in to be a loadmaster. It seems like a much more adventurous job and from what I have heard from former/current loadmasters they love their job. I am however concerned about the lack of civilian world applications of being a loadmaster (although if I like it, I would definitely consider making a career out of it). Does /k/ have any input on either job or anyother job that would be both enjoyable and have have transferrable job skills?
>TL;DR: USAF linguist vs. loadmaster

So I am conducting an experiment on reddit, everytime I upvote something, it immediately gets a downvote.
this is the thread, I made a bunch of reddit accounts, and upvoted it, just to see the downvote count go up each time I upvoted.
something is going on

Ok, so I'm an 18 year old college kid who lives at home due to financial reasons. I recently purchased an M1 through the cmp, and then turned around and bought a nugget from a brick and mortar store. Upon realization I had purchased a second firearm, my mother flew off the handle and claimed due to having a "blackmark" on my legal record from purchasing two firearms(rifles, mind you) I need to have it returned.
I'm a model citizen, no criminal record and have flawless grades(not that that really matters) as well as having regularly shot at a range. My question is as a civilian with little hunting history or any other "alibi" just what is the weight of this "flag" I created by purchasing two rifles within 4 days of each other(nugget was on Thursday, mailed my order to the cmp on Saturday)?
Illinoisfag here, celebrating victory. Now comes the time for a handgun.

Which handgun do you guys recommend? Im fairly new to guns, got interested in them when my dad gave me this for my 18th bday. (Only shot a couple hundred rounds through it so far) I've been a long time lurker,and everything i know about guns (novice status) is through /k/, so my question is, which handgun would you recommend as a CCW? my thoughts were glock 17, or a . I dont want the recoil to be too bad, so looking under .40. Also, would you recommend a Compact or Subcompact model for CCW? thanks /k/ommrades
