I seldom buy brand new guns, they lack the appeal. This afternoon Iím driving to Atlanta to spend a few hours in a gun store there and back to Tampa. They sell a large variety of older and collectables. Iíve found quite a few gems there over the years including a pair of M1 Garands unfired outside of the factory. One of them is the very rare T26 tanker. Also managed to get an unissued German Mauser, still had the cosmoline all over it. Never know what youíll find. Real happiness would be a 1941 Johnson at a good price.
I do prefer it over my Mark III. The II I own is a couple of inches longer and slightly heavier. Feels more balanced as well.
Ten day waiting period, what foolish liberal came up with that?
I can understand that. I always look at the vintage rifles at the gun shops. Nothing like a Garand and the like but I bought a couple of cheap surplus rifles they had at the local sports shop chain, a Moisant Nagant and an Argentine Mauser just to have them.

California is a different world. Not only do you have the ten day waiting period for handguns but there are restrictions on types of guns allowed. When I'm up in Reno it's then I look around given they hold no such restrictions and their gun shops have a plethora of goodies.

Quite easy, Columbine both shooters were too young to obtain a CCW.
Holmes didnít have a carry permit
Itís thought that Holmes concealed the weapons while bringing them into the movie theater, a presumed violation of the law, as he didnít have a concealed weapons permit according to information obtained by TIME. Source: http://newsfeed.time.com/2012/07/21/colorado-...
I thought Cho might have had a CCW, I was wrong. He didn't.
Seung-Hui Cho did not have a concealed carry permit, nor did he care about the fact that he was breaking the rules as he sneaked guns into classrooms. Policies such as the ones in place by Tech serve only to disarm those who obey the law. Source: http://www.collegiatetimes.com/stories/18661/...
Albeit these were second hand connections to the 2 shooting events in Colorado but I was driving through Wyoming headed to Littleton to pick up my ski boat which was at my friend Mark's house who was storing it given I moved from Denver the year prior when the Columbine shooting took place. He lived across the street from Coloumbine High School and the police would not let me in for days let alone remove my boat.

One of my best friend's daughters Morgan was the swim coach to the 6 year old girl who got shot and killed my the Aurora theater killer plasying "The Joker".

These tragedies affect the nation in a much more direct way in the horror they cause and removal of innocence and trust but they're realities. You're going to have bad men in the Old West and Jack the Rippers in Europe. If the removal of guns would work to eliminate this I'd be for gun control but that's a myth and a simpleton form of thought no different than to look at a high speed police chase on an L.A. freeway which ends up in the death of innocent people only to lay claim we should get rid of cars.

Guns aren't the problem, it's the people add to that these gun control nuts don't weigh in the thousands of cases when a law abiding citizen saved their lives or loved ones by having one.

Claiming we should restrict guns is nothing more than a knee jerk ill thought out reactive position by those unable to see the entire picture.

I have a CHP because, unfortunately, that is the law here. However, I do not need a permit to purchase a firearm, and I try to buy firearms in private sales (no Form 4473) whenever possible.
Yea I buy private seller... I also like buying older guns...I know it might be nothing but I think newer guns made in computer age might have chips inbeded in them for government to track...Like said could be paranoid.....but just dont trust our jackbooted government.

Tony has proof of absolutely nothing. He is nothing more than a forum troll, and the second you ask for him to prove anything, he just responds with "prove it isn't" or some such BS. Which is a dumbass response because how does one prove a negative? Tony is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the VPC which I proved months ago that their statistics on deaths cause by CHP license holders was pure hogwash.
Don't feed the troll!
Point taken.

I pop into these gun threads every now and then and you know we don't agree on aspects such as the Zimmerman case but the truth be known I do feel these gun control liberals to be a danger to America and believe my thoughts are not based on conspiracy theories or the thought I should own a Sherman tank.

These liberals actually believe that by banning guns you'll in turn eliminate or greatly lessen violent cases in which a handful of people carry out heinous things but fail to look at history and an overall understanding that there is no logical method to make it a reality. You can't go back in time and eliminate the invention of the gun and you can't keep them out of the hands of criminals so to me at least their cause is lost but they do possess the threat of taking away our right to defend ourselves as law abiding citizens.

I whole-heartedly agree.

On the Zimmerman case, we will just agree to disagree.

I know it is hard for you CCW and NRA supporters to understand the truth with all the NRA propaganda.
The truth is Police and NRA are often on opposite sides of issues. Why would Police sacrifice their careers to coverup something they would rather you not have?

Did the theater shooter have a CCW? Did the VA Tech shooter have a CCW? Did the Columbine shooters have a CCW?
Did the theater shooter have a firearm? Did the VA Tech shooter have a firearm? Did the Columbine shooters have firearms?

Genius: there is no tracking or tracing of crimes committed by persons who hold CCWs.

In fact: there are NRA sponsored laws prohibiting posting of such names.

It is the morons and cowards like you take use guns to the determent of everyone else who has to put up with your SHORT comings.

You insist on rolling around on the ground screaming "it's not the guns" when there isn't a soul in the universe that is blaming the guns, but pusssies such as yourself that insist they have special rights to put everyone else in danger because they have pathological urges to carry deadly weapons into kindergartens insisting (wrongly) they have that right.

More than 30,000 deaths a year, soon will outpace even vehicle fatalities.

Tick tock. The pendulum is swinging back towards sanity.

You're not making sense.

You've got figures with no backing and ideas it's a "special right" to own a gun when in fact it is not.

I think bareFOOLs 30,000 firearm deaths includes iraq and kuwait

its allways apples and oranges with garbage like bareFOOL

any firearm death figures includes cop killings, suicide, murder, justifiable homicide and accidents.

when in fact if criminals didnt have firearms illegally, the resulting deaths would be much lower and very acceptable

when comparing vehicle deaths to firearm deaths,
is only fair to compare accidents

morons like bareFOOL have zero credibility

MAGGOT + cockroach = bareFOOL

You don't think at all, BOYCOTT, except when you try to come up with new aliases.

The 31,000 PLUS average complied by CDC.

I guess that didn't ask NRA flunkies for their input, eh?

It's stupid to try to pretend that a 100 round magazine is a tool useful to society that morons like you who are already to stupid and ignorant to admit that dropped guns do in fact go off and kill people with one shot.
Flame throwers would be handy to clean up blackberry briers...
Both 100 round magazines and flame throwers would be my tools of choice to clean up these Anti-American protests against US citizens and our Embassies.
