  1. Until Ruth Vader Ginsburg leaves, nothing truly important will be likely for gun owners. Let's face it, the 1934, NFA, 1968 GCA, and 1986 Hughes Amendment are ALL blatantly un-Constitutional!
  2. John Harris in Nashville is the best Firearms attorney in TN. He is very familiar with NFA law. You can reach him through the Tennessee Firearms Association website as he is the Director. With NFA items, always play it safe as some things have extremely high values and the penalties for messing it up can be pretty severe.
  3. A few points: Yes, this was anti-gun tax. It was a tax on top of the normal TN sales tax. It was inefficient to collect. A five round package of shotgun slugs got a single stamp, and so did a 1000rd bulk pack of 5.56mm. TN does not need the tiny amount of money. It probably costs nearly as much to administer the program as it collects. We run a surplus. It makes sense to get rid of small sources of revenue and concentrate on more efficient ones.
  4. Yeah, but in those days a Colt AR-15 was only $175 and didn't come with a $200 transfer tax!

    I bought a couple about 6 months ago on GB for $35 each. I haven't looked lately.

    I can't remember the last time I bought a finished lower. I keep a couple of 80% ones around. Half an hour at the drill press and I'm ready to put on a finish. No muss, no fuss. All done for under $50 including shipping.
  7. I agree with using a musket for home defense. A .75cal lead ball makes a heck of a mess! The foot long flame will burn off their facial hair and set clothes on fire at close range. Then think of the terror effect when they see my pissed-off naked self charging out of the smoke cloud behind six feet of bayonet tipped musket!!! Hiding behind a wall or closed door won't protect you from an 18" bayonet blade!
  8. I've recently run about 1500 rounds of the Geco 124gr 9mm through my Sterling SMG and several pistols. It was clean, consistent, NATO spec ammo. I highly recommend it.
  9. Wow, lucky or not, it's still an amazing shot! Correct me if I'm wrong, but 4 ft target at over 6000 yards equals 1/15th of a minute of angle. And 17 seconds for the sound of the strike to be heard!
  10. Was just there 3/8. Most of the Philippine rifles are becoming CMP Specials because of the termites in the wood. Lots of those in the racks. A Special will have new wood, be refinished, and have a brand new match-grade barrel. Worth the money if you are going to shoot it. They have space for 100 rifles at a time in the store, and keep the racks pretty full. If you have a special desire, ask very nicely, and they aren't busy, they might look behind the counter. The range had about 40 IHC and WRA rifles for sale at $1050 and up. Match grade -06 ammo is on sale for $67.50/100rds. Very accurate ammo!
  11. When I see any US surplus firearms that are "all correct", but aren't in As-new condition, I figure someone has replaced a bunch parts in order to make it that way. During WW2 and Korea, recruits took brand new guns full of cosmoline, stripped them down, and threw all the pieces into large cans of boiling water or solvent to get the grease off. When they were reassembled, nobody cared who got which part. Considering that this probably happened six or a dozen times on each rifles service, and that they may have also been re-arsenalled two or more times, the likelihood of any of them being 'correct' is infinitesimal. I'd rather have an honest weapon that was re-arsenalled than one that is 'correct' using whatever parts some guy had. CMP prices are actually looking pretty good compared to what I see for sale online and at shows! If CMP gets another 2000 pistols from the Army, I'll get one!!
  12. PM answered. According to the serial #, this rifle was made in 1991.
  13. Ruger .223 Mini14 Stainless Steel Ranch Rifle with Butler Creek folding stock. Rifle is in Excellent condition, clean, sharp bore and stock locks up solid and tight. Comes with two 30rd Magazines, one stainless, one blued. I'll also include the 10rd stainless mag it came with if I can find it , but don't let that be a deal-breaker! Willing to meet within 30 miles of Mount Juliet. $650 and must show TN drivers license and confirm that you are legally able to purchase this rifle.
  14. My XDs came with three mags and a holster. That was a while back. I don't know what they come with now. I'll have to ask my wife where her HS2000 is. Her guns and shoes migrate around the house.
  15. It most likely did go overseas. In those days recruits were issued rifles that they kept through training and deployments. Relatively few rifles stayed behind in Canada during ww2. It was not like today where a soldier gets a different rifle in basic, specialty training, and each duty station.
