    A local pawnshop that advertises "Over 100 handguns in stock!" posted this picture on a local classifieds service. I wonder if they know that one of those things is not like the others? :eek:

    While it's conceivable that it's legit, I doubt it. Can you spot the potential felony?

    The horns on the jackalope are under the legal limit. ;)

    Yeah, must be the jackalope. I think they are on the endangered species list.

    The only thing I can assume you are talking about is the Rossi Ranch Hand lever action pistol. This is a completely legit pistol.. for now. This is because it is not a cut down rifle, but produced as a pistol to begin with. My state of NY however has seen fit to classify it by name as an SBR under state law (or so I've heard). Everywhere else though it's currently good to go as pistol with no BATFE stamp. Google Rossi ranch hand and you'll find a lot of articles explaining it.

    Thanks Hex, that's pretty neat. It's a pretty low-brow pawnshop, and I thought for sure that some old boy had cut down his lever rifle and sold it for beer money.

    The only potential felony I say was the intratec, depending on who bought it. Like to know what he wanted for the HP.

    Cheers,

    Felony? Felonies more like it - as in two.

    Crimes against the very nature of firearms and manly acts throughout the land!

    Pink guns - Well, Dog my cats if that isn't illegal on a Federal level it damn sure should be.

    'Course, I'd have to bury my Wife's pink AR then or head for the hills.:D

    I think a customer would need a red dot pointer to point to the gun he would want to handle, rather than I'd like to see...that one.:D

    The TEC looks like a candidate for felon.

    Its either tec-9 or an Ap-9, which is basically the same darn thing...high capacity, low accuracy and reliability, but looks cool!

    I figured the mare's leg or the Tec 9. Funny thing about the Tec 9 it's always reported as a "machine gun" or at least that's the description of the local PD in my neck of the woods
    And yes the mare's leg is a pistol and quite legal.

    these kinds of ignorant knee-jerk reactions just make the unconstitutional and silly regulations the ATF enforces seem legitimate to new shooters.
    Try knowing what you're talking about next time you accuse someone of a crime, and stop helping malum prohibitum nonsense like SBR laws in the first place.

    See post #6, or read more than three posts and you'll get the gist.

    The one that appears to be in a holster?
    (But hanging such nice things on some crappy pegboard? On little metal hooks? That's a crime right there doncha know....).
