    Just wanted to share a pic of my small collection....

    From the top...
    Mosin-Nagant M44
    Beretta 92FS (I brought both this and the M44 home last Weds. Fun day!)
    Browning T-Bolt (This is actually my g/f's. Her Dad bought it in 1971 when he got home from Vietnam.)
    Remington 597 (I can't say enough good things about this gun)
    Mossberg 702 Plinkster (Fun little gun to shoot. Going to put a red-dot sight on it. )

    PirateRadio, I got to thinking... I used to have that few firearms. Watch out, your disease may get significantly worse. For example, a few years back, my collection was a 1917, a single-shot .22lr, and a MN.


    I have a few more than those, now.

    Yes I do. I think the 1934NFA is absurd but I do still want my short rifles and short shotguns.

    Yes. In fact, I'm headed out with friends in a little while for some shooting.

    Exactly what do you have to do to SBR something? And is the recoil on that SBR shottie bad?

    SBR = short barreled RIFLE, SBS = short barreled shotgun. :D

    Yes. They're horribly nasty, and hurt much. I love them dearly.

    Yeah, I knew that. Semantics.
    Is there a technique to reducing that recoil?

    Simple for SBR or SBS

    1. Start with two (2) ATF F 5320.1 (Form 1)s, two (2)fingerprint cards, le signature, (2)photos, $200. check from you to NFA.
    Also a Certificate of Compliance ATF F 533020.
    2. After sending in and blessed by NFA Branch and returned one form with Stamp and
    their signature.
    3. Then and only then you can cut down.
