    I bought my first gun 18 months ago, and started buying "endangered" guns 12 months ago. I still need a FAL, an M1A, two more ARs, another AK, a Galil, an RPK, an SVD, a... blah blah blah.

    As much as I hate the fact that the Bill of Rights may be vomitted upon, I can't help but smile when I think about simply not being in "worry mode" anymore. It makes more sense to just do what makes you happy, but I convinced myself that I might be sorry later.

    So anyway, I hope (and will work) to keep my freedoms as they stand, but if not, I'm really excited to start collecting S&W K-frames, get a fabulous O/U 12 gauge, a Sharps rifle, a couple lever guns, a SAA replica, a Kentucky whatchamacallit, and more beautiful "old man" guns, because that's what I am at heart. :)

    I stopped buying EBRs a good while ago. Now I just tend to love single-shot rifles, exotic arms (silenced 30-06) and older rifles like my Beaumont-Vitali. :)

    I'm a bit sick of the EBR thing also. For all the money I've spent on assorted items over the past 4-5 months, I could have easily purchased things that I have much great interest in - like a Garand, 1911, another .22 rifle and pistol, .223 bolt gun, CAS guns - the list goes on.

    Still, better to have purchased said items and not need them, than want them and not be able to get them.

    Now that supplies seem to be drying-up (and costs are rising), I can turn my attention to other things.

    I got tired of buying them for a while. Then I made the mistake of trying to build just one EBR. It's like reloading. You don't save any money in the long wrong, you just cultivate an appetite. No regrets.

    Fine taste, sir. I'd love to watch a gun-banner look through your "weird stuff" and try to figure out whether things like a suppressed Nagant scare them or just confuse them.

    "Yeah... no. I think that one is potentially evil... I can't tell." :confused:

    I don't like being forced to buy things. But I'm pretty sure that's what the antis want; they want us to give up. At some point, we'll all be over-stocked. Well, fine. I'd rather be over-stocked than under-gunned.

    Not really sure about the other items on your list, but the M1A isn't technically an EBR. They were available during the '94 ban.

    I already bought the EBRs I wanted. Two AKs and an AR kit coming. It's "only" a Del-Ton, but we'll see if I have enough interest in the AR as a platform to drop $1200 on an LMT or something later down the line. If I'm not (or I can't, due to ban or whatever) then whatever, I've still got a perfectly serviceable plinker. I'm covered.

    My next big purchase will be a CZ 452, some nice glass and a YHM Mite. After that, I think I'll get a nice lever or three. After that, I think I'll start looking for a nice single-shot .45-70. After that, I think I'll play with NFA some more and make a Krink, and maybe get a SBR AR upper and a suppressor. After that... :cool:

    If they reinstate it, and if it's comparable to the '94 ban, and if you want any mags over ten rounds, then yes. Buy the mags.

    No, the more hard core gun banners want to take away ALL your guns

    You cant call it an EBR if non-neuterd versions are still legal in CA.

    What's this EBR crap? A battle rifle is a battle rifle. Unless it has the EBR stock, it's just a battle rifle.

    Actually, the M1A comes with standard flash suppressor. But to be kal legal they had to change it to a muzzle brake.

    I kinda am, I had plans to obtain a AR15, a FN FAL .308 and a few other toys but I really wanted to focus on world war II guns like Arisakas, K98's, MP44's, or other guns like that, unfortunately i'm in panic buying mode.

    They are using EBR as in the silly Evil Black Rifle acronym, not as in the Enhanced Battle Rifle stock.

    I only have 1, and it's the one I bought over a year ago. I'm not sure how all of you have the $$ to buy so many firearms. I can't even by enough ammo to shoot the one I have enough.
