  1. I am active duty military stationed outside of TN, but the DoD and the State of Tennessee consider me to be a permanent resident of TN--I have a TN driver's license, I own property in TN, I pay TN taxes on it, and my records all list TN as my state of residence. However, according to 18 U.S.C. §921(b) "For the purposes of this chapter, a member of the Armed Forces on active duty is a resident of the State in which his permanent duty station is located." Is this only for allowing the purchase firearms out of state while on active orders? Ultimately, I am a TN resident, correct? I make short trips to TN from time to time. I have firearms that were transferred to me by FFLs located in TN (when I lived there full-time) that I have brought to each station that I've been assigned to while on active duty. They are added onto my PCS orders each time. I would like to sell some of these firearms on one of my trips back to TN. If I am a legal resident of TN, is this considered interstate sales of firearms?
  2. You bring up a good point--this sounds like interstate sales. There are some circumstances here that I failed to mention. Maybe they matter, maybe they don't, but I will create a topic in the 2A Legislation and Politics forum and maybe there's a lawyer who can clear things up.
  3. I am driving to Memphis on October 6th along I-65 north of Nashville and I-40 and back again on October 8th, but may push it to the 9th.

  5. Yes please. Don't know when I'll purchase another firearm, but just in case that would be much appreciated!
  6. Thanks for the responses, Gents
  7. I am a permanent resident of TN, but currently stationed in Nevada. For the first time in 4 years, I bought a gun online and the transfer process was very different than I remeber it being in TN or other states I've been stationed. I'm not current on changes to federal gun buying laws so maybe I'm behind the curve or it's state-related. I'd like to know if transfers are like this back in TN. (1) No individual FFL holders, only gun stores--I've usually gone to a residence where the transfer was conducted (2) $60 transfer fees--I was used to paying $20 for the guy to make a 5-minute phone call (3) Up to 7-day wait period between filling out paperwork and taking possession of the firearm--Used to walking out with the firearm right then and there
  8. Thanks for posting the video. I viewed it during my little bit of research a couple nights ago. The rifle I received came in the same gas component configuration as the rifle shown in the video at the 6 minute mark. That is obviously a very open gas position and one reason why I thought the handguard was being blown off. Even being in such an open configuration, the rifle was still able to cycle ammo. And there's another video on Youtube where a guy's FN-49 does not cycle ammo in that configuration. I thought completely closing the gas port would eliminate the handguard being blown off but it did not.
  9. There is a hole in the top of the gas tube for gas to escape directly vertical and therefore I may have be absolutely wrong about the gas function on this rifle. This paragraph is directly from the FN 1949 manual: "c) Gas regulation. - The size of the slot for the escape of gas and its location are such, that when it is completely open the pressure exerted by the gas on the piston is insufficient to operate the mechanism. That is the point where the regulator intervenes. The regulator is built from a simple threaded sleeve (6), screwed around the gas cylinder. When the sleeve is screwed in, the opening for gas escape decreases and consequently the thrust of the gas on the piston is growinq, a good functioning of the rifle, without undue fatigue for the mechanism, is thus ensured. The gas regulation is carried out by the manufacturer, when the rifle is assembled." Source: http://www.biggerhammer.net/manuals/pdfs/FN49.pdf So what I interpret this to mean is that when I closed the gas system, I put more gas pressure on the piston instead of less, which explains why it continued to cycle another round after a shot. However, the dilemma is that if I open the gas port, I will have more pressure on the handguard than on the piston, and the handguard will continue to be blown off the rifle. Am I wrong? I"m not a very smart man...
  10. From reading a few forums last night, I am not the only one with the problem of the front handguard getting blown off. So, last night I closed the gas port completely (or so I think). After work today, I took the FN-49 to the range. First shot and the handguard blew right off again and the rifle cycled the next round. I'm thinking that a part (or parts) might be defective in this rifle, because it doesn't make sense to me that the rifle would still be able to fully cycle with the gas shut off. It's either user error or equipment error. I am going to have to comprehensively check the gas system components of the rifle as well as read an instruction manual because I am at a loss right now. In one forum post, a guy mentioned that he just duct taped the front handguard to the rifle and has had no problems since. While that may not be the best answer, if I don't find out why the rifle is operating like this, I might have to develop a wrap of some kind for this gun... or fork out some cash and take it to a gunsmith.
  11. Probably should have researched before I posted. Just answered my own question. Sorry for wasting your time
