  1. If the ATF bullies say the tube is the suppressor, then the tube is the supressor.  A bunch of  washers in my garage could be converted to a "muzzle break" that could be converted to a can.    Make a ruling and stick with it.  It's so stupid.  Allow M855 but ban 7N6.  Blah, blah.
  2.   If you'll remember from your college history courses, the Constitution was written in 1787 and ratified in 1789.  The Revolutionary War ended with the Treaty of Paris in 1783.  Yes, there was a standing army, commanded by George Washington, before the 2nd Amendment was written or ratified.  The U.S. Army's birthday was in June, 1775.  It has been an army since that date. There were many "city dwellers" in 1776.  About 5% of citizens (slaves excluded) lived in urban areas.  The population at the time was about 2.5 million.  So about 125,000 were city dwellers. Your premise on the 2nd Amendment is correct, in that the militia clause had nothing to do with the right.  It merely stated that the U.S. needed a quality, trained populace to protect the country and that it was every man's right to possess the means to go to war.
  3.   Me thinks you should do a wee bit o'reading of that time.  The Feds did have a standing army at this time (remember General Washington?).  The militias were looked down upon due to their lack of training and thier ability to quit at any time.  And it was not just states that had militias, as there were plenty of local militias.    And the word "regulated" meant that the citizen was practiced and proficient with his arms.  Who was the "militia".  Every able bodied man between 18 and 55 years of age.   http://www.historyisfun.org/Militia-in-the-Revolutionary-War.htm
  4.   I think "regulated" has that meaning in the 2nd.
  5. Glock 21 and FNX 45 with an Osprey.  Glock 26 & 17 with an Evo.  Full auto closed bolt mini-uzi with a Mossad II.  GSG with a Gemtech integral (awesome).  A few .22's.  I shoot em all with and without cans. 
  6. Chrome lined lasts longer. Chrome moly is supposed to be more accurate.
  7. Looks like PSA has it for .23c a round.   http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/russian-5-45x39mm-53gr-fmj-bt-ball-1080rds-sealed-spam-can-1.html
  8.   I wish I could do that to my pistols!!  And I think the manufacturers do it so they won't have any warranty work.  I run suppressed and nonsuppressed.  Makes having an adjustable gas system invaluable.
  9. Sounds like you are getting a fair deal.  Your friend must think highly of the Springfield.  Make sure you take your cousin out for a steak dinner!
  10. Unfortunately, this:
  11. A few years ago I met a guy that had a Mini-14 for sale. He showed up with this: Ended up buying it, but it was a long story.
  12. The fireball will be as long as the gun!
  13.   Maybe I'm just hyper sensitive!
  14.   I have about a dozen cans, and even with a light coating, I get a greasy face!  Not so with the two piston SBR's I have.
