  1. Knob Creek April 2020 Show / Shoot

    There is no evidence that anything they are doing is working or will work. In S. Korea, who the authorities love to hold up as the model for combating the virus and for containment success, I can still go to a restaurant or a gym. Not so here. They use this phrase "abundance of caution" to try and outdo one another in supposed safety measures. At what point does the "cure" become worse than the disease? Short-term containments work. But they're talking about doing this for months? Insanity. Or a power grab. Or both.
  2. Is a c&r license worth the headaches?

    I also have a FFL/SOT (01/03) but decided to maintain my C&R, which I've had for years. It's $30, or $10 a year, so its cheap. The paperwork is no big deal either. ATF has never shown much of an interest in my C&R. I will say that some 01 FFLs refuse to recognize them. I remember seeing rifle I really wanted once in a store, I think it was a GEW 98, but the guy refused to accept my C&R, so don't be surprised if you occasionally run into that. After that, I made it a habit to ensure, as often as possible, that the seller would take a C&R, especially with GB/internet sales. All in all, however, I think it's a great tool for collectors. I even used it for a few NFA items. I bought my first SMG (a Reising M50) with my C&R. Also put my first mortar on it. I say get one for yourself and if you don't like it, don't use it, you're only out $30.
  3. 8mm machine gun ammo FedArm?

    What about the new Prvi Partizan 8mm? I don't have a 34, but I do have a 42 and it seems to do just fine in there. Otherwise, the age of good, cheap 8mm are over I think. I always heard the Portuguese stuff was good, but it's so hard to find anymore. I've had a few people try and gift me Turkish and Ethiopian 8mm, but no way that goes through my 42. -David
  4. Veterans Heritage Firearm Act

    Charlie, how many firearms do you think would be registered under an Act like this? Pre-68 we're talking WWII and Korea vets, primarily. And while I am sure there are some family members out there that know what they have, I would think a lot don't have a clue. I suppose that would be part of the appeal...that it wouldn't suddenly flood the system with a ton of new weapons to be registered. And the historian in me thinks that if you can save even a few it's completely worth it. -David
  5. crooks! ripped off by armed response llc in missouri

    I showed this thread to my wife (an attorney) and she thought it met the definition of larceny. She also Googled him and found all his charity fraud. Apparently he had to return $9 million he stole in the name of this charity, but most it will never be repaid because he "can't pay." I say go get him, man. I know that's easy for me to say not having to deal with the police and all, but he sounds like a total shitbag. He's out there making us all look bad. Just look at his webpage: https://davidkenik.org. He loves firearms and photography. -David
  6. When Virginia enacts am assault weapons ban, does that also affect those who own MGs in that State? Virginia requires registration of MGs at the State level, so I’m guessing they’ll have a pretty easy time running those down if AWB extends to transferable MGs.
  7. Yeah, but it’s only worth something to someone who wants it. That’s one of the reasons the big DDs don’t sell all that well. There are not very many anti-tank guns or Howitzers in the registry. Very few, in fact. But they’re a lot cheaper than these MGs because not many people want them. Expensive to shoot and maintain...you know the deal. I also think it has to do with the forum. RIA and Morphy draw high income collectors. That type of stuff would take forever to sell on something like Gunbroker. I also personally think the term “collector value” is abused and can be misleading. Flamethrowers is a great example. The same auction houses mentioned above will occasionally auction off an M1 or an M2, and it sometimes is advertised as complete, all original, in the crate, etc. If that’s what you want, great, but that doesn’t mean it works. In fact, only about 25% of the complete units out there actually work (according to Charlie Hobson). So what’s more valuable? A flamethrower that might have all the right, original parts, but whose tanks will rupture because they fail hydrotesting? Or one that may not be 100% but that you can take out and fire? If the answer is not the rare, exceptional case that happens to be both, then I think the answer my vary from person to person.
  8. There’s also the fact that the future leaders are talking about confiscating guns, and with the recent ruling in bump stocks that said the government is sovereign, and does not need to compensate you when it confiscates something dangerous, why would someone want to risk spending thousands on something they might not have for very long?
  9. FRAUD ALERT

    It was actually in reference to your original post at Armslist. I just looked it up and contacted the guy because 1) I was bored with Dorian being here and 2) because watching these guys try to bullshit their way through a fraudulent ad is always amusing to me. In any case, you'll be glad to know that Armslist finally removed that post and your firearm is no longer listed there. -David
  10. FRAUD ALERT

    All I’m saying is the guy trying to fraudulently sell your firearm sucks at being fraudulent. I am an FFL/SOT and he sent me a 01 FFL (Piney Woods Arms) that I’m certain is not his and no SOT. And I’ve never met a legit NFA dealer who ONLY accepts PayPal or wire transfers. I hope no one falls for his BS, but he throws up lots of red flags.
  11. FRAUD ALERT

    Huh. J and J Firearms of Catlettsburg KY apparently has a 01 FFL from Hawkins TX. And calls itself Piney Woods Arms Inc. Sorry, I really enjoy fuckin with these guys. And he's FOS. He will only accept payment in the form of PayPal or Wired funds. As if I was born yesterday...

  14. If I had a rocket launcher.......

    Who reactivated your tube? I bought an RPG2 a while back with bars welded in the tubes. Trigger mechanism is still intact. I just don’t know a good person to do the welding, and that’s one job I wouldn’t want done poorly.
