Once this gun ban does happen, i may have to get one of three calibers. They are the ones the govt wont even think of touching.

Uh, okay. Do you have a question here? Are you looking for recommendations or something?

Tons of options in the .22LR world, and the Kel-Tec PMR-30 would make a good rimfire pistol in WMR. Don't know anything about .17HMR.

Seriously, though, do you really think they could outlaw all centerfire ammunition and still find it within themselves to leave rimfire stuff on the table?

You believe that the same restrictions that apply to centerfires won't apply to rimfires?

Were you asleep during the 1994-2004 ban? Have you tried to buy a high capacity 10/22 mag lately?

What are you asking?

What makes you think that calibers are on the table in any of the ban proposals? Not even the Feinstein AWB outline discusses banning calibers.

Why are you considering quitting the struggle?

I think you'll see all of those cool Umarex .22's will probably fit the description in one way or another in thier new ban.

Its nice of you to roll over and quit already. Stand up and fight. Stand up and fight.


First they came for the ARs
and I didnít speak out because I had other guns.

Then they came for the high capacity magazines,
and I didnít speak out because I wanted to keep my guns.

Then they came for all semi-automatics,
and I didnít speak out because I had a revolver.

Then they came for my revolver,
and I couldnít speak out because Iíd lost my ability to speak

Where has it already been determined?

The desired end-result is that all guns are confiscated or banned. By doing what you propose you avoid nothing except reality.

I am so angered by this defeatist attitude that seems to infest a portion of the gun community. Ask other countries how their broad confiscation started. Give them an inch and they will take every gun you own.

Maybe a ruger 10 /22 target would be my next gun in sight to get.

7 posts tearing your questions apart from a RKBA point of view and you keep going like they dont exist.

Nathan.....wake up dude!!

Any gun that has the ability to accept more than 10rds is on the chopping block! You're rimfires aren't safe!

You want to roll over and quit, that's fine with me. Go out and buy a
Daisy Red Ryder and a crossbow.

You have been quite negative lately nathan. Why don't you fight instead of giving up. If they have their way, in the end no gun is safe, so no caliber is safe.

Stop being so defeatist and go on the offensive. Write, call, contribute, urge others to do so as well.

We can win this. :)

Thought about .22 magnum, but not cause of any laws. Two weeks of panic and it's still at the local Wal-Mart and gun store untouched.

Perhaps that new Savage M42 in .22mag so I have something to shoot if the 22lr stash is depleted?

The only cartridge that's even likely to be attacked is the .50 BMG, and that's a tough sell, since there has never been a crime committed with a .50 BMG rifle in this country (at least not the last time I looked a couple years back).

Once this gun ban does happen

It is far from a foregone conclusion. Congress isn't even in session right now. The ones yammering are the same ones who always do, and they're pushing the same agenda they always push. They're just getting a little more attention right now. Their momentum has already attenuated greatly now that people are calming down and thinking instead of just reacting. By the time the bill is ready for a floor vote, only those adamantly for or against gun control will be paying attention, and we outnumber the antis by a huge amount.

I'm with ya but when you find Hornady 22mag critical defense in stock somewhere, let me know.

Realism is that congress can't even agree on a farm bill, without which milk prices could reach $8 a gallon, let alone avoiding the "fiscal cliff"....

Lets brace for more economic impact within the new year.

When the 1994 AWB went into effect, it included 25- and 50-round magazines for the 10/22, paratrooper folding stocks for the 10/22, etc.

Don't ever be deluded into believing that leftists will deem "X" to be untouchable.
