I carry a measuring tape, and a copy of laws, regarding shotguns with my Sawed Off. Am legal within 1/4 of an inch in both barrel length and overall. My dad "fixed" this shotgun originally, and made sure to keep it legal.

Wouldnt be my first choice, should I choose to go on a shooting rampage, good for home defense, and thats about it. But fun to use, after pumping AK rounds into Elmo, to finish him off.

You MUST doublecheck these rules for each gun yourself.

This is the list of 20 parts.
You can have no more than 10 of these imported on a non "sporting" rifle.
Some are by different names or multiple names.
Handmade receivers can not be transferred without paperwork.

Frames
Barrels
Barrel extensions
Mounting blocks/trunnions
Muzzle attachments
Bolts
Bolt Carriers
Operating Rods
Gas Pistons
Trigger housings
Trigger
Hammers
Sears
Disconnectors
Butt Stocks
Pistol Grips
Forearms and handguards
Magazine Bodies
Followers
Floor Plates

A hand made receiver is transferred legally without paperwork through estate.

Not a firearm, but a fun little toy. Full sized and metal..mostly. Upper reciever is pressed steel, lower may be plastic.

The cannon worked great for the 4th.
Everyone for five miles has dialed their alarms down, but we still managed to set off the one across the street with the big one a few times.
We set off five in fast sequence once too.
The neighborhood seems to enjoy it too.

I still blink when the 60 mm goes off.

That's real bass!

The exciting part was when a fuse didn't set off the charge and we had to drill it out.

It was bored from a solid piece of round stock, 260 pounds finished.
We are planning on hot bronzing it.

The smaller ones are all tool steel and strong enough for smokeless powder.
They have all been proof tested.

Just straight bore.
Some have some nice milling done.

I do have some friends with a military 57mm and some with tanks they use for historical events.
The guy with the 57mm hasn't licensed it for a smokeless breech.
He'll probably set it up for black powder.

It's no assault rifle, but still, not too dull.

My favorite gun...and platform. This is one of the six remaining tigers in the world. And the only operational one. Had it's problems but a tough ass tank..screw it! Let's throw on an anti-aircraft gun!

I saw it too.. I think its BS.. you would have to be faster than the dude that shoots aspirin. It looks like they moved the gun in order "throw" the round while it was moving in the barrel. I tried at the range this morning and just pissed ppl off by hittin their targets. :)

I find when shooting the big guns it best to keep MOST of your weight on the front/leading foot. That way you won't fall on yer ass and drop the gun.

Here is an example of shooting stance for the big toys.

You made me laugh! hehe. I can just see you out there completely confusing people! hehe.

And yes. An aggressive stance is recommended no matter what you shoot. These folks in the video have no understanding of the caliber they are shooting or they would not have these circus acts.

*sigh* I wish I had been to the playa when the drive by shooting range was happening. I have seen a few videos with stuffed animals. I think a balloons are fun to shoot. Especially at long range.

My fave bumper sticker: Peace - something to shoot for.

What is the arguement?

Postby bittermac » Thu Jul 10, 2008 12:57 pm

Our forefathers put the right to keep and bare arms in the constitution to keep the citizenry from being defenseless against its government. All rifles were assault rifles. They didn't put it in there to make sure you could hunt. That has to be the silliest arguement I have ever heard. You don't want to have a gun? Fine, be defensless. Hope you are never robbed in your entire lifetime.

In Kennesaw, GA residents are required to have a gun for self-defense and defense of the community.
One must present a solid argument before city council as to why they feel they should be excluded from the law.

Just got the fusion package in for my SKS. I really dig the picatinny rails on the bottom AND sides. Got a bright light on one side and put a laser on the other, my harris bipod it mounted below. I put my old holosight on top and will be trying it out this afternoon.

I just love tapco. :)

I haven't decided on whether to change out the AKs.. I kinda dig the wood furniture. My Ar-10 is staying the way I got it since Armalite did a bang up job right from the get go.

Sounds like all you need is a pistol grip and night vision! Do you use the EoTech sight? Have you tried the (not holosight) Leupold Prismatic? You have a reticle without the need for a battery, but turn on the battery and you get an illuminated reticle. I like it better than their CQT when I don't need the 1-3 power.

I love ArmaLite. They don't get enough credit with the AR. I got the AR10 in olive drab. I also picked up their AR180B. They are very picky about their mags, tho. Never buy more than a couple of mags at a time before testing their lips at the range.

Have fun!
