Let's share some "family portraits" of your guns. Nice, sunny weather prompted me to take this photo of mine. Thanks to THR member Condition Zero for making the sweet Marlin Camp 45 happen for me.

PTK you need to split that up into a few shots, I can't even come close to IDing the ones in back. Or just give the back half to me and don't worry about fussing with cameras and such.

Nice collection.

I will note that at least two of your guns made into the "Abomination" thread....

(and there's a couple more that SHOULD be in that thread ;))

Why, thank you. Abominations are a good thing. :D

FFMedic

The full resolution picture is about 20mb and shows all very clearly, but yes, I do need to update the picture.

Dksimon

That "pink" is CavArms "purple", much darker than their Barbie-puke pink. In addition, that AR-15 belongs to my girlfriend, though I did assemble it.

PTK-handguns pic, 3rd row from the left, what are the bottom 2? the bottom-most almost looks like a cz52 to me, but the grips are wrong and I dont see the takedown tabs. the one above I have NO idea, but it is unique looking and thus kinda neat.

PTK
April 17, 2008, 07:43 PM
Bottom is a Hungarian AP .32ACP pistol, a copy of the PPK, the next up is a CZ82 in 9mm Makarov.

I am a strong supported of the RKBA; however I am also a supporter of our legal system to a good degree. I'd like to see guns laws changed, to make sawed off shotguns, and rifles legal; but as far as I understand they are currently illegal. If that is truly the case, that they are illegal, then how does showing pics of them in this thread constitute taking the high road? Of course if they are legal then my whole question is moot but something keeps nagging me in the back of my mind telling me they are illegal. Someone correct me please and tell me they are legal and that their being shown here is truly High Road material.

All the best,
Glenn B

They're all legal. You just need a $200 tax stamp for each National Firearms Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act) weapon.

Um, any pictures of NFA items are presumably already on record with the BATFE, so I'm guessing the worst that could happen with a picture of such an item is that Agent Schmuckatelli might decide to use it as his desktop wallpaper.

How much tin foil do you go through in a month? If the government wanted to find out what I had, there are many, many ways to do so, including scanning my dwelling with what amounts to millimeter wave radar. Posting pictures of legally held firearms on the internet isn't exactly dangerous.

I understand that. I just didn't know <18" shotgun barrels were NFA weapons. For some reason I thought they were just outright illegal.

PTK
April 18, 2008, 04:31 PM
They're legal, as are grenade launchers, grenades, rocket launchers, machineguns, short barreled rifles, silencers, anti-tank cannons, etc.

They just need a $200 tax stamp each.

Awesome collection!!! I was all excited about cleaning my new AK47 this evening until I took a beer break and logged in. I saw your collection and now I think I'll just throw it in the trash and give up.

Tell me you don't have mannequins dressed in correct military attire standing around every corner of your house, each holding their rifle.

April 19, 2008, 04:53 AM
PTK I have a bone to pick with you. What's with giving approaching two thousand bucks to the BATFE just in transfer taxes? Unless you match that dollar for dollar to GOA (I'm not convinced nra cares about NFA owners) haven't you given a bonus to the people who sit and plot new regulations to end the sale of this item (by ruling it to be a "machine gun" or "destructive device,") or end the importation of that gun or parts set? I can't see a difference between giving BATFE $200 and giving these people (http://www.bradycampaign.org/donate/) $200. Is there a difference? At least an FFL could say the benefit to other gun owners outweighs giving their FFL fees to the devil, but man, almost two grand to ATF?

On a lighter note, I wish I had been there when you told the title II manufacturer that you wanted to SBR a nagant. Was it :eek: then http://img329.imageshack.us/img329/4554/laugh0188dz5.gif?

I don't mean to knock the sbr nagant because it would be one EFFECTIVE concealed carry weapon, but it's just funny.

I'm so glad to hear you say that Sans Authoritas! That is the model behind my gun buying mindset. Except for some that are just "too cool" to pass up I am wanting to have some good examples off all the main types of current production guns.

Obviously I am far from over. I have but 2 handguns and no revolvers, leverguns, pump-action rifles and no Garand... yet.

This summer I plan to delve into .308s with a scout rifle, Savage 10 FP LE and an M1A.
