  3. As posted by Tim from Military Arms Channel This was sent to me for sharing on social media (see link below). The law firm of Wiley Rein is one of the largest law firms in the firearms industry and represents a number of major manufacturers in their dealings with the BATF and regulations. This is NOT a joke nor is it speculation. This is a stark warning of things to come and I hope it prompts you to take political action. This letter is about several things but primarily it is something you should take very seriously because of recent actions by the BATF that will affect any owner of AR15 pistols, AK pistols, HK pistols, etc. Yes, this means your Saint AR pistol or your Draco. That's exactly what the ATF is targeting. There are several things of importance in this email. First: It goes against the Trump administrations Executive Order mandating such regulatory practices cease. The BATF has lead the charge is thumbing their nose at the President and his DOJ under the leadership of Attorney General Barr. Second: Any firearm that has a barrel length that is too long, or the firearm is too heavy will be considered not importable by the BATF. No more pistol versions of rifles will be importable. Third and the MOST IMPORTANT: Through unwritten interpretation of regulations and through private correspondence with unspecified companies, the ATF has capriciously and arbitrarily decided that ANY AR15 pistol, AK pistol, HK pistol, etc. is an ANY OTHER WEAPON (AOW) and thus is subject to the NFA and taxation. Any company who produces such firearms for sale in the United States and any consumer/owner of such firearms are either manufacturing or in possession of illegal AOW's. This is being retroactively enforced. It does not matter if you bought a previously approved firearm. The only way you can be for certain you are not in possession of an illegal NFA item is to personally submit your AR15 pistol, AK pistol, etc. to the ATF for a determination. This can take up to a year and any letter given to you is only for you. The ATF is getting around the EO's by claiming they're not making any permanent determination and their decisions are in essence fluid and subject to change. When you were willing to hand over bump stocks, we warned you it was not about the bump stocks, it was about HOW they were doing it. This is why Gun Owners of America and I are suing the federal government. When they started talking about reclassifying braced pistols as SBR's, you laughed and said people who bought them were stupid. Now, as we warned, they're coming for your regular AR15 and AK pistols. Is it so funny now? WAKE UP! Contact your representatives TODAY and tell them you will NOT stand for the ATF making such capricious and arbitrary rules thus turning millions of Americans into felons over night. Sit silent now and you will have no one to blame but yourselves for what comes next. GET POLITICALLY ACTIVE. Letter from Wiley Rein: https://bit.ly/3otxo2t Contact your Reps: https://bit.ly/3jpVzva

  4. I'm not an attorney but I've been an NFA collector since 1994. An SBR by definition has barrel shorter than 16". If your receiver no longer has a shorter than 16" barrel on it then by definition it is not an SBR and is treated as a rifle not as a "short barrel rifle" as long as the longer barrel is on it. So if you wanted to take your "SBR registered" AR lower with a sub 16" barrel out of state you have to file an ATF Form 5320.20 . But if you take off the sub 16" barrel upper and install a 16" barrel upper it no longer is by definition an SBR and no Form 5320.20 is necessary. It is still listed in the registry as an SBR but the actual configuration is NOT an SBR so SBR rules do not apply as long as it does not have a barrel shorter than 16" on it. It is not the same as a machinegun where if it was "once a machine gun always a machine gun". So while you cannot do anything to a machine gun to change its status (other than destroy it) you can install a barrel longer than 16" on your SBR lower and it no longer meets the definition so travel without filing a form is OK. At least that is how I understand it.

  7. Randy Harris (Harris Combatives // "Cruel Hand Luke" on TGO) put on his Surgical Pistol Skills class over the weekend (Sat and Sun) at Windrock Shooting Range in Oliver Springs, TN. I took the class along w/ 9 other local (to Oliver Springs) shooters. The purpose of the class is to help shooters improve their precision and all around shooting skills at the appropriate speed based on size of target/range to target. We started Sat morning w/ some history and background of defensive handgun shooting/training as well as shooting technique. We then moved to live fire drills. The drills tested the shooter and also reinforced the techniques, becoming progressively more difficult over the two days. This included very small targets at close range, medium sized (8x10 ish) targets at long range, and various sized targets AT SPEED w/ both hands, dominant hand, and non-dominant hand. A wide variety of targets were used, including steel. Randy also addressed other topics relevant to defensive use of the pistol, including proper mindset. Shooters were "tested" for a baseline on day one and again near the end of the class. All showed improvement and several commented on specific techniques Randy taught/showed them which helped them solve individual "problems" they were having w/ their shooting. Throughout, Randy was responsive to each student, addressing their individual "problems" in addition to the material included the the course. We finished up Sun afternoon w/ some one-on-one competitive shooting. Nothing better than learning and having fun at the same time! Overall, this was an excellent class and a good value for the money. In spite of long days on the range, there were no complaints from students... which is usually indicative of the students being fully engaged and interested.

  16. That’s about pretty average over the last number of years. It’s way better than when I got mine and the wait was over a month. Some of the cats here who’ve been carrying for a couple decades will tell you stories of having to wait in excess of 3 months.

  19. Terry, I really can't tell you more than you've already been told here, but I can make a small comment. My late brother-in-law was a collector of knives. The more exotic the better...with one caviat. It absolutely HAD to be one of 2 things. Made by someone he knew and respected, and not be a commercially produced model with 1000s+ made of each one. I can tell you that he owned several Thomsen knives and they were among his favorites. Some years back, he bought and sold knives personally, and knew many of the "old guard" as he called them in the Knife Guilds. So his standards were very high. If he bought and kept something, it was special. So I can say that you have a beautiful piece of what he would have considered worth owning and would have coveted it himself. And for what little it's worth...I think it's gorgeous too.

  27. And they are apparently a waste of money. A friend of a friend works at a local hospital and revealed that they are lumping tests into batches of 15, testing one of them, and then calling all 15 whatever the result was for the one. So there's really no point in even getting tested.
