Re: 21 or older to buy AR-15?

{snip{ I can reload in a second. Hit mag release, insert new mag, hit slide stop (or slingshot). It's not an overly complex process. 2-3 seconds max if one hasn't practiced much. Mag change time will not significantly reduce the killing potential of a homicidal maniac. I would also note that a shoo...

Re: Bump stop ban signed today

Is there anything on Trump actually signing a ban? Or is this just an order to develop regulations? No direct ban at this time, but as "expeditiously as possible, to propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machineguns." There will be time for...

Re: Bump stop ban signed today

{snip} Looks to be just a continuation from the Vegas shooting and he’s not seeking a specific ruling just to issue a final ruling on the issue Look again, that memo bears today's date. You also may note the use of the word "immediately'? The only "immediate" I see is "for immed...

Re: Bump stop ban signed today

I think bump stocks and binary triggers are a waste of ammo but if they are going to become illegal, I might have to buy one. And I was saving my allowance for something else :banghead: Do I have to cut my belt loops off now? Apparently stock analysts and big investors don't believe anything will a...

Re: Bump stop ban signed today

President signed today And you got nothing for it. Fox News going all anti gun with the announcement. Pro gun people did not get in front of it and now loses. I can't find this anywhere. Can you link to a source? I'm curious to know the specifics like bump stocks only, or any "rapid fire devic...

Re: So the President is a Gun Free Zone?

Just curious...not really related to the story.... What if you are eating in a BBQ place, or maybe enjoying a day in the park, carrying as usual, and the secret service show up to do a security sweep due to an unscheduled stop, and say you have to leave or disarm. Are you okay with that? If I don't...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

It is human nature to be lazy and scared. That is what tyrants have counted on all throughout history. It's not being 'lazy or scared' - it's being strategic. No one here, no group of people here are capable of winning against the govt. During the revolution it only took a few rifles and a few good...

Re: CZ-75 Compact P-01

You aren't lying about the wait. CGW did their magic on my full size 75 BD and it is like a completely different gun. I currently have a RAMI sitting in their shop. Got on the wait list in December and they are hoping to get to it sometime in April. Long wait, but definitely worth it, IMHO. I am in ...

Re: I want to keep my guns.

I've lived 55 years - haven't "needed" a gun yet. Did you ever stop to think that the fact that so many of us have firearms and hold the 2A in such high regard is the very reason we have not degraded into a socialist heck hole yet? Your definition of "need" is undoubtedly quite ...
