  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...

    I tried messaging you, because it looks like your response go cut off.
  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.
  15. For sale Breda 30 C&R $9500

    Hi! Any photos? Is this 6.5 or 7.35mm? Original? Rewat? Thanks so much.
  16. Next mg

    I think it depends on what you want to do with it. If you are just looking to shoot, a MAC is fine. They’re very customizable too, so you can have a lot of fun with them that way. No shortage of parts other. If you’re more historically inclined, a Reising is fine choice. They were Marine Corps guns in the Pacific during WWII as you may know already. That was my first MG and despite their reputation, I thought it was a great SMG if you maintain it. Parts are not quite as plentiful, but they are out there. Magazines are pretty expensive too. You might also be able to find a STEN tube gun for around 10K as another option.
  17. WTS C+R BREDA 30 7X57 NICE !

  18. AVT 40 pros and cons

    Most AVT-40s, as I understand it, were semis that were later converted to FA. There are some subtle differences in the in the appearance of the muzzle brake, right?
  19. FINALLY APPROVED

    Better late than never, huh? Congrats, dude.
  20. WTS transferable and Pre Dealer Samples

  22. Non-dealer to Dealer question

    Thank you!
  23. Non-dealer to Dealer question

    When an FFL/SOT takes an NFA item in transfer from a non-dealer, the transfer occurs on a Form 4. Does that dealer need to submit fingerprints, photos, etc if taking it under his/her FFL? And if the FFL/SOT in question is a corporation, do background checks needed to be submitted for all the people in the corporation?
  24. Is there a change in USPS policy on shipping NFA?

    Hi Jim! I just sent an MG to Bob Naess via USPS Priority Mail and had no issues. Now, I sent as a dealer to another dealer and with a PS 1508 form, but I had no issues. They didn't ask any questions or scrutinize anything, they just took my paperwork and off it went, so I don't even think they knew it was C3. If I recall, you have a C&R FFL. Were you using that? I would think that would cover you, at least if it was a C&R sub. In general, Buddy is right. Without a license, you can ship long guns as long as it is going to a dealer, but they will not ship handguns in the mail unless it is dealer to dealer.(18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A); 27 CFR 478.31) NFA can get a little tricky. SBS and SBRs CANNOT ship via USPS by individuals because the PS considers them to be pistols. The problem with sub guns, since many have barrels that are less than 16'' or have an overall length less than 26'' is that the PS can and will sometimes classify those as pistols as well. In other words, the PS has their own definitions for firearms that differ from what we encounter elsewhere. I have not heard about any rule changes, and it sounds like the ATF's advice was unhelpful. Sometimes, you just have to politely educate the postal folks. Their default when they don't know is to say no, it seems. Don't take no for an answer. Other than that, USPS has long been a preferred way to ship NFA. FedEx will ship NFA. UPS will NOT ship. I guess the other thing you COULD do, although it is unnecessary, is get an ATF Form 5 submitted, signed and returned for your repair. That might help if this is consistently a problem. Kind of hard for them to shoot you down if the ATF has signed off on the move for repair purposes. -David
