Re: Are they really that dumb

There are a lot of people who subscribe to the idea that you have to do something even if it makes no change, just to show you care.

Aka virtue signaling.

Re: Red Dot in 28ga

Depends. You could load a light enough charge with red dot that it would be safe, pressure wise. The shotgun recipes that are published meet 3 criteria; safety, fit, and performance. Lots of loads can be ok pressure wise, but don’t fit well in the hull, and the performance mismatch makes it a poor c...

Re: AR in .410 upper platform- What’s the point?

I suppose it would be useful for garden pests is about it. A .410 is really only useful for skeet. Try patterning them and compare it to even a 28ga. Admittedly, having any gun is better than none if trouble comes, but the .410 is very iffy. As to why a .410 in an AR, it’s a lot less redesign work ...

Re: The Hughes Amendment and law enforcement

After your statement, which contradicts my experience, I just used google.

Short answer is yes they can and do.

However, it requires the company to get a FFL (iirc, a type 11) and some sort of additional stamp.

So they do get an FFL to do so.

Re: The Hughes Amendment and law enforcement

I’m sure there is a legal way to do it.

I’m certain it’s expensive from a private standpoint.

And yeah, I’m sure there is a lot of cronyism involved on the legal end involved.

Re: The firing of Dick Metcalf from Guns & Ammo

What would be interesting is if you have x training, then they are obligated to treat you the way they treat LEO’s involved in a shooting- the immediate send home and set up interview with union rep and lawyers present later so as to not get adrenaline dump statements that get used against you, and ...

Re: The firing of Dick Metcalf from Guns & Ammo

And these were the guys who were at least willing to practice! For a while, a few of the metro departments were allowing officers to use paid time to shoot practical shooting matches. I liked meeting these guys. Many were not very good shots, but some were and all who came out regularly got better. ...

Re: The Hughes Amendment and law enforcement

What I would find interesting is how private security firms get their class III weapons. There are lots of them that have suppressed full auto equipment, and the latest at that. They don’t qualify as LE. I kind of doubt they are considered dealers, and even if they are, how do they get LE sign off? ...

Re: The firing of Dick Metcalf from Guns & Ammo

Yep, and the other part of it was Metcalf owned PASA park (he may still), which was heavily involved in gun training. It struck me as a very self serving position he had. He was correct in that the state can place restrictions, and the courts decide if they are reasonable. The question of training i...

Re: Right to Bear Arms: Kodavas & the Case Threatening Their Cul

India.

No relevance at all to the US.

Good luck joining a church like that here… the left would probably pass a law exempting it as a religion.

Re: What steps are you taking to help your significant other?

I’m in the no immediate family group also. The collection is large and unusual enough that while I have a spreadsheet with a bunch of information, it’s really not very helpful. Good luck for my brother or sister to find it when I’m dead anyhow… I’ve told him that the best way is find a class 3 deale...

Re: Where to buy from private parties?

What you said is exactly why places like this are dead… Everyone wants to save, and the sellers all want top $. The sellers look at the auction type places and think it’s worth $$$$$ Buyers remember what stuff sold for 2-3 years ago and think $. Occasionally someone is not mercenary, and they tend t...

Re: Save old boxes, or no?

If you have the space to save them, it doesn’t hurt to do so. I’ve sent things back for repair in the original boxes. If you are a collector, it makes sense for guns you don’t shoot. Somehow (using a high value rifle as an example) my Dakota .416 Rigby is unlikely to be worth more due to having the ...
