    Ok envision this. The NFA gets repealed (or never existed) and we can now have machine guns, sound supressors, anything, with no restrictions (think:shall not be infringed)

    How do you see yourself owning and using sound supressors/full auto/AOWs, etcs?

    Woot. I'd get an MP5, an M4A1, and a full-auto Glock 19, and some evil-looking silencers to go with them.

    I would see myself with lots of toys and good hearing when I am old.

    I'd like a suppressor to put on a .22 pistol so I can practice with it in the back yard. I shoot my .22 rifle out there all the time, but the pistol is too loud so close to the house.

    I could see myself owning a select fire rifle also. It would have to be something that shot cheap ammo though. I wouldn't want to blow through cases of .308. Perhaps an AK, something in 9mm or an RPK in 7.62x54R. Only if they were affordable though. No way would I spend more than $1500 on one.

    Short barrels are also nice. I'm a big fan of carbines. Offhand, I can't think of anything I'd like with a barrel under 16" though.

    I never saw AOWs being especially interesting. No buttstock and too big and heavy to use like a pistol.

    Suppressors, suppressors, suppressors.

    I'd like to be able to hear my future grandkids when they talk to me.

    I did the Class 3 stuff 20 years ago and got tired of it.
    Maybe I could be talked into a SIG 550, though
    A selective-fire FAL could be nice, too.
    Suppressed, of course.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    Supressors.

    Hopefully, in the near future of your rosy scenario, handguns of reasonable size with built in supressors. I'm not interested in covert crime, just in keeping my hearing.

    I'd probably own a few suppressors and full-auto.

    My AR would be select-fire. I'd definitely have a suppressor for it in .223, 9mm, and .45ACP.

    All of my .22LRs would be threaded for suppressors (and I'd have a few different kinds).

    Also, I'd probably get a short barrelled shotgun and maybe some short barrelled .22 rifles for backpacking. Maybe a couple other auto toys, but a couple select-fire ARs with interchangable uppers would probably mostly cover it for me.

    If I had a place to shoot it, sure. As of now, however, I don't have a good place to use an M203.

    On the other hand, if it were cheap enough, I would like to get some detcord to play with. I don't even need it to set off any primary charges, just the detcord.

    Wouldn't mind the suppressors at all. Full-auto anything...well...not my thing but I could probably be convinced. :)

    I wonder

    if there are any senators that might be able to sneak legislation through to remove suppressors from the list of NFA items? Someone like Zell Miller or Ron Paul. Maybe we should get together and send off letters to have them removed with the reason being to protect hearing?

    Suppressors: for indoor range use.
    Full auto: 10 round bursts for stages with cardboard targets with Comstock count.
    14" barrel shotgun: we're limited to 5+1 anyway so might as well take the barrel down.

    I would buy an MP5K within microseconds of the ink drying on that law... well, within microseconds of the price dropping anyway.

    I'd have suppressors for the AR-10 and FAL. I shoot them so much, it would be nice to not go deaf. If there is anywhere that we could make progress it would be in removing suppressors from the NFA. They make guns less concealable, don't actually make the gun silent, and keep the noise level down which EVERYBODY could appreciate.

    An M60E4 would be soon to follow.

    I would be looking for Vickers, BREN and Lewis machine guns, a BAR and a 1928A1 Thompson. The first four are just for fun and historical interest. The Thompson would be for both historical reasons as well as a part of the HD/SD option. Especially if it would function reliably with good JHPs like the 230grn Hydra-Shok. The 1928 had at least decent sights and was not too bad a carbine on semi-auto.

    Silenced Select fire UMP in .45, for home defense.

    Probably also a silenced 10/22 for pest control and plinking.

    Thats about it. I really don't see a need for full auto/select fire, or supressors. However, the Gub'mnt shouldn't feel the need to limit my rights of ownership over such.
    I don't drive fast, but I have the right to own a Corvette. A Corvette in the wrong hands is just as dangerous....

    What if the NFA were repealed?

    I would look for the flying pigs.

    I'm in the supressor camp. I'd like to be able to shoot more often, and closer to home. Plus, it would be nice for the occasional pest control issue.

    Full auto doesn't do a lot for me. Don't ge me wrong, I would like to dump a few mags sometime, or sit behind a minigun for 30 seconds.

    If it were an option, I'd probably have a burst capable AR or something, just because they'd probably all be that way. I mean, why would manufactures make semi-auto only versions if they didn't have too?

    Oh definitely. But probably only one or two. Full-auto is enormously expensive to shoot often. Suppressors? Sure. Short-barreled rifles? Always wanted an M-4. Short barreled shotgun? NO. Had a LEO friend who had one (he did it legally) and after listening to him talk about it, I have no desire to replicate the experience.

    I'd have to get a 2nd mortgage on my house and sell a few vehicles.

    PS. They'd also need to dump the '68 GCA so we could import some stuff.
