Re: A friend, a horse, and...a gun?

Taurus Judge. Seriously. .410 for snakes and such, .45lc for two legged critters. If she takes a Taurus Judge into California, they'll call it an illegal Short-Barreled Shotgun (CA-only definition, not Fed definition) and it'll be a felony. For that matter, most places in California, any firearm wo...

She noted that the U.S. government, however, rejected Seoul’s proposal to export some 600,000 M1 Carbines, which were also used in the Korean War, as they come with a magazine that can carry multiple rounds unlike the Garands.

While ground-breaking and cool and all, good luck finding a u-15 stock. They're also about an order of magnitude more expensive than the hammerhead, I believe

Re: Should I buy a (CA Legal) AR?

Once funds allow I'm going to go with a featureless AR with the hammerhead grip. It's more like a featureless rifle grip. I've always found the monsterman grips to feel awkward, but that's just me. Also, nowhere in the PC (12276.1) or the calguns flowchart do I see any mention of bayonet lugs being ...

Re: Personal opinions and expertise on the Kel-Tec Su16ca

If by "broomhandle" you mean a "forward pistol grip" then be aware that that would suddenly make the SU-16CA an illegal "assault weapon" according to california laws. http://www.webshooters.org/images/CA_AW_Flowchart_Ver11b_2010_SideA.PNG http://www.webshooters.org/images/CA_AW_Flowchart_Ver11_2010_...

Re: External safety on pistols: Crutch, Liability, or Necessity?

My very first firearm of any type was a ruger p90, a DA/SA with a safety. Since it was my first pistol and I didn't grow up around guns I didn't necessarily trust it or myself around it. I didn't know what to expect from either of us. I didn't know if I was capable of safe gun handling. I even kept ...

kgeter: I don't know where you are physically located but check your state laws as well. I'm in California and I'm pretty sure anything that calls itself a pistol and has the magazine well outside of the grip is not allowed here. Of course that means that it would never be on the "safe" list and you...

Re: If you could design the perfect SHTF rifles...

While I wouldn't call it a perfect rifle, I've always kind of wanted a lever action in 5.56 that took AR mags. Sort of tacti-cowboy-cool. With short rail up front for a light or laser of course. I think if I paid a gunsmith lots of money he might be able to turn a Browning lever-action rifle into so...
