Re: Executions – Is The Bullet Better Than The Needle?

Trooper, I logged in for the first time in months to applaud your assessment of a potential ancillary benefit of legalization of a substance in common use in CO and WA. I'll be interested to see how that works out.

Re: Insurance for collections and NFA stuff

If you are military, or married to a military member, or a child of a military member, you may be eligible for a USAA membership. They offer valuable personal property insurance that covers quite a bit, though it can cost $100/year for $20k coverage.

Re: 14" mossberg pgo not nfa?

Rockets are registered because it uses a propellant charge and the explosives. Dummy rounds are not DDs, but the launcher/tube still is even though it's smooth bore. The "shotgun" in question, under the current NFA regulations, isn't a shotgun and seems to fall squarely under either DD or sporting ...

Re: 14" mossberg pgo not nfa?

The over .50" bore limitation is for RIFLED BORES not smoothbores. ATF has been clear about that for years in this regard that it relates to rifled bores ONLY. Do you have letters showing that DDs are only DDs if rifled? They have repeatedly changed opinions and I do try to collect letters. Anyway,...

How would it be a DD? Are you linking the StreetSweeper to a pistol grip only shotgun? That like calling a Glock a MG because it has a hi cap magazine..... No, I was thinking more along the lines of it being over .50" bore. Seeing that the law says the following... Any projectile weapon with a bore...

Re: Bill to require steel pennies, nickels makes cents, says

Even steel is too expensive to mint. Pennies will be too expensive to make, and they'll just get thrown out anyway.... Changing them from one metal to another won't matter much when zinc is under $2k per ton and steel is about $400 per ton. Besides, the metal, once you're already using cheap metal, ...

I'm not certain if you're serious, but here's an idea. 20mm = ~0.787". 950JDJ is .950". "The custom single-shot rifles for the .950 JDJ reportedly weighed over 100 pounds, I really doubt that you could make a manageable handgun out of it.
