  1. Pre May Dealer Sample in an LLC with FFLSOT

    In theory LLC's do go on indefinitely, however many states limit the lifespan of LLC's. You need to check the state's laws in which you have it set up in addition to checking your articles of organization (which can also limit the lifespan your entity). Yes the pre-may's can be kept by any entity or individual after giving up an SOT.
  2. I'll take seconds if he bails out.
  3. new electronic assisted form 4's YOU BETCHA !

    congratulations on setting yourself up for identity theft. They keep all your personal info, print out the forms and mail them in......just like the rest of us, but do it for free.....sort of, to harvest your personal data. They are sort of the facebook of the nfa world, except facebook doesn't have your fingerprints.....yet. I've spoken to a couple people that use this system/ kiosk and when I pointed out what they had done they got a scared look on their faces? Call me paranoid, but I'm still not comforatable even sending this stuff to NFA branch directly after all these years? My Mcdonalds gift card is more secure than most .gov databases. LOL
  4. FIrearm Insurance

    We only insure items of necessity or those that carry substantial potential liability issues. We don't insure toys... because well, they're toys and if you lose one you go back to the sandbox and get another? If you think you are tying up a substantial portion of your net worth and are afraid to lose it, sometimes it better to put the money elsewhere? I have friends that lose 20-50K a year in fees on their investments but they don't insure against that loss? Everything is relative in life including "risk tolerance". Oddly, the larger collections I know of are uninsured for the most part, because it costs tens of thousands to insure. HTH
  5. I need a lawyer - please read and recommend

    Don't even imagine anyone is going to be prosecuted for fraud.... that's not happening. It would be helpful if you described the gun so as to quantify your loss? Are we talking a pre-may 249 vs. a transferable, or a pre-may Reising? If your potential loss is 10K or less, hiring an attorney and the rest may be a wash in fees? If you have the gun consider chalking it up to a lesson learned unless you can come to some settlement with the seller on your own? An NFA lawyer is not particularly relevant in a civil property dispute. The fact that it transferred to you and sounds like it was potentially years ago, is not in your favor either? Best of luck, but in some cases you just have to suck up a loss occasionally.
  6. Don't shoot a hole in the boat!

    We're actually not all in the boat. I'm not distancing any more than I did before. Didn't distance on Monday from the surgeon who was laid off while working on his house. Just finished up a 9 hour day at work today. No free cheese here, we just work for the money, though I will say the break from traffic is awesome, but saddening at the same time. The wife went protesting today with 1500+ others, a scant few of the vulnerable wore masks the rest just mingled. Social distancing will not outrun a virus.... ever. It will however extend the time the majority build up an immunity, which is what fortunately, always occurs. It would be awesome to get out shooting soon, but I don't see much time off and all the local ranges are closed, even the private clubs who can remain open, but chose not to? Good to hear someone is having time off and fun!
  7. The presamples are coming out in desperation OR

    I have a guy looking for a 1928a1 thompson but guys have been wanting close to transferable money so he's sitting tight. He's looking for others as well, but again high pricing.
  8. Knob Creek April 2020 Show / Shoot

    I had no idea how far the communists and democrats (but I repeat myself) would go to get rid of Trump. Players will be paid out later this week in the "stimulus package"......as it was pre-written last fall. Update 3/20: Now clearly a hoax since there is no outcry over traditional influenza numbers and when government is closing beaches and barbershops, it's nothing more than a power and cash grab. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/coronavirus/coronavirus-disease-2019-vs-the-flu Read the numbers and draw your own conclusions, but I see a trillion dollar hoax and a lot of insider trading. Government is here to fix all the problems they just artificially created from a below average strain of flu whose numbers are actually minuscule, counting on Americans not being able to do math. So far it's working. Phase II in a few weeks they will come out and say as a result of government's hard work, the numbers were greatly reduced by our actions (and payments to our big donors with a trickle to the little people) when in reality the numbers never were there in the first place. All the while ignoring normal strains of flu that have occurred forever with much higher mortality rates.
  9. Knob Creek April 2020 Show / Shoot

    It's on for several reasons, mainly because it's outside. If people are afraid to go outside we have an insanity problem. If you are old and feel threatened by the flu don't go, it's as easy as that. Last time I was there 6' spacing was no problem since crowds were pretty light. This is a private event on private property, if the government steps and doesn't allow it, the virus is the least of our problems. The pussification of the country is both fascinating and terrorizing at the same time. If the commies decide to invade and they come ashore with runny noses and sneezing will everyone run to a store, buy TP, and then lock themselves inside their filthy apartments and surrender by email?
  10. Is a c&r license worth the headaches?

    It made sense for me to have both when I was transferring a lot of C+R DD's that I could not do on a 01/03, or if you are keeping a bunch of C+R guns personally vs. putting them on an 01/03 and dragging them out for audits all the time. At some point when atf is relieved of it's duties performing transfers, it goes to someone else competent (like treasury where it's actually legal), and form 4 transfers go to 3-4 weeks as they should be it will make sense again. Of course in a few short years all MG's will be C+R, more guys will pick up the license.
  11. Russian 1910 Snowcap Maxim

    It is still C+R IMO since the "plate" is the firearm by atf definition and is over 50 years old (as I'm sure the registration forms would prove) Configuration appears nowhere in atf's current published regulations cut and pasted as of today. Additionally it clearly meets 3.C. Curios or relics. Firearms which are of special interest to collectors by reason of some quality other than is associated with firearms intended for sporting use or as offensive or defensive weapons. To be recognized as curios or relics, firearms must fall within one of the following categories: a. Firearms which were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas thereof; b. Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and c. Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event. Proof of qualification of a particular firearm under this category may be established by evidence of present value and evidence that like firearms are not available except as collector's items, or that the value of like firearms available in ordinary commercial channels is substantially less. The market for early heavy MG's has fallen the way of Model T collections and is never coming back based on general suppy/demand curves. There is literally tons of money in the current MG marketplace, but no interest. Proportionally, the heavier and older it is, the bigger the discount. 08/15's are now close in value to MG08's, at one time MG08's were at least 4x more money, now they are just simply 4x heavier. HTH
  12. KJS TACTICAL ARMS. anybody know them?

    Check with the librarian about some screen cleaner, the post is from 2016 and the OP has not been back since then. LOL
  13. WTS M60 E3-E6 Commando Barrels 1200.00-1800.00

    What's funny is you fools responded to an ad that is over 3 years old from a poster who hasn't visited here in about the same time frame.
  14. Reising Question

    So the mags range Opening at the back on originals .450 on two and .456 on two more (inside) Christy .450 on 3 checked Opening at the front 1/4" back .523,.527, .541,.530 Christy .540,.536, .536 Mag catch hole (from the top of the mag to the top of the hole) 2.62, 2.63, 2.64, 2.64 Christy 2.65, 2.65, 2.65 The Christy mags are NIW. The original 20's are like new with minimal insertion marks on the spine and 98%+ blue left on the tip of the followers. Of all these mags checked I have never actually fired from any of these and I have a bunch more I use in the guns that have more wear on them, so I can't say for sure any of these actually do function. HTH
  15. Reising Question

    Or it could be Mike's boss doesn't want him taking pictures of his stuff and posting them on the net? He seemed to be a pretty low key guy when I met him. Christie sold out to Keystone and are producing the mags currently. I have some Christy mags (last of them), but haven't bought any from keystone yet, but the rumor was they had some issues. The magazines would not cause a semi/full auto issue. Start with Frank's suggesting and work forward from there. Better yet, buy some books (including his) and manuals and start there, since all of the hard work has been done by these authors that spent a lot of time compiling this info. If you think you're going to get that level of "tech support" here on the net in a couple of posts it's not going to happen. You sit down with the book and the gun nearby, start reading and learning as you go, no different than any other mechanical repair. I fix things for a living, from guns to furnaces, to diesel engines and most are "one off" repairs so manuals, books, and web documents save me and my customers tens of thousands a year in labor and broken parts (from improper disassembly). ATT, start with a known commodity such as a factory 12 or 20 and go from there. I can measure some today but there can be tolerance issues so dimensions alone may not help? As b-san says it could be the catch? Are the pins tight on the housing? Or in backwards?
