  1. Local law enforcement doesn’t have the authority to enforce most Federal laws. A few years ago Tennessee entered into an agreement with the Feds to be able to enforce immigration laws. But that’s only the THP, only federally trained Troopers, and operating under the supervision of ICE. It’s still (or was) being appealed in court.
  2. Leaving the laws in place and making the FBI and the DEA bigger, and handing them the enforcement responsibility doesn’t sound like much of a plan to me. I see the chances of this happening about the same as doing away with the IRS.
  3. Pre 9-11 I worked for a machine tool manufacturer, one of our distributors used a wire EDM machine to cut a pretty detailed 1911 in a 1/8” plate for a customer whose hobby was guns. They slipped it in an envelope and he put it in his briefcase. As he went through the security check at the airport, the guy stopped the machine and called the cops over. He told them “This guy has a gun in his briefcase”. The cops checked it out and told him he probably should put stuff like that in his checked baggage. Then after discussing how cool it was they gave it back and let him go. Nowadays TSA would probably take him in the other room and beat him with a rubber hose.
  4. Why would the U.S extradite Assange? He's wanted in Sweden for rape.
  5. Federal Law 478.29 Out-of-State acquisition of firearms by nonlicensees. No person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector, shall transport into or receive in the State where the person resides (or if a corporation or other business entity, where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State: Provided, That the provisions of this section: (a) Shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to purchase or possess such firearm in that State, (b) Shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a rifle or shotgun obtained from a licensed manufacturer, licensed importer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector in a State other than the transferee's State of residence in an over-the-counter transaction at the licensee's premises obtained in conformity with the provisions of § 478.96(c) and (c) Shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a firearm obtained in conformity with the provisions of §§ 478.30 and 478.97.
  6. The state of Washington doesn’t have any training requirements for a carry permit, yet they pulled our reciprocity because we allow service members to have a permit? I’m going to have to have a talk with Bill O’Reilly about this. This needs to make National news.
  7. I feel oppressed that I can’t use all the words in my vocabulary, or that I am somehow a bad person if I do.
  8. Then don’t. Just buy one and let us know how it compares.
  9. Interesting conversation. I have never bought an aftermarket trigger for anything; never saw the need to. I have kicked around the idea of putting an Apex on one of my M&P’s; just because everyone raves about them. But then I think; they are carry guns not competition guns. I’ve done trigger jobs on revolvers that I shot in competition. It didn’t help my scores any, but people that tried them were impressed with how smooth they were. I just bought a new M&P CORE that was supposed to be Performance Center gun. I question that it ever saw the inside of the Performance Center. It went back to S&W without even being fired. I’m still waiting to hear from them on it. My S&W and DPMS AR’s triggers seem fine. My 700 VLS has an X Mark Pro that breaks like glass; I see no reason to change it. I thought about it when Remington had the trigger recall, but just sent it in and let them do their thing. It works fine and I don’t need it to be any lighter. My weakness is optics because I know they do make a difference to me. I own Leupold, Nikon and Vortex scopes. I also believe you get what you pay for in scopes. I just bought my first red dot for a handgun. I have Eotechs on rifles, but have never used an optic on a handgun. I wanted a Leupold DelatPoint Pro, but I can't get a mount for the M&P, so I ordered a Vortex Venom. I'm curious to see how that works out.
  10. Good for you,that should be pretty cool. Wish I could go; history is being made. But just remember, if you don't come back with pics to post.... it didn't happen.
  11. There isn’t National Federal Reciprocity on driver’s license. And if the Feds did it (Carry Permits); it wouldn’t be without a lot more information and requirements than we have now. I wonder how many people out there don’t know their driver’s license won’t be accepted to fly or enter Federal facilities next year. https://www.dhs.gov/real-id-and-you-rumor-control Nope… I’m okay with dealing with the individual states.
  12. Looks like two more states are headed for Constitutional carry. We should quit messing around and be next. http://www.concordmonitor.com/nh-senate-committee-passes-concealed-carry-permit-repeal-7391621 http://www.12newsnow.com/news/local/constitutional-carry-proposed-in-texas-state-legislature-1/384955747
  13. The price of all guns is coming down. Even used isn’t selling like it was. Buyers don’t feel guns will be banned and they won’t be able to get what they want (at least for 4 more years). The collectables are selling though.
  14. Good for them. I’ve been using PMAGS for years with no problem. I hope they can now step up their production without leaving us with a shortage. It’s always good to see an American company hit a home run.
  15. I’m a little curious as to why he picked Florida? He could have done what he did in Anchorage, or really anywhere else. Most baggage claim areas aren’t secure areas; you can walk in off the street with whatever you want. I wondered if he picked Florida because they are quick to execute murders and he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life in prison if he survived the attack. But… who knows what goes on in the minds of the mentally disturbed. It’s terrible for the victims and their families that the guy didn’t get help when he sought it out.
