    Let's say, in the not-too-distant future, the US Supreme Court rules the 1934 NFA and the 1968 GCA unconstitutional. In the process, they also incorporate the 2nd Amendment, striking down all state gun control laws. Manufacturing of Class III firearms (now known simply as "firearms") takes off. Cargo ships loaded with the world's "finest" milsurps are arriving in port.

    So, field artillery aside, what's on your shopping list?

    SIG 551, supressed 1911 and MKII Ruger, Glock 18, MAG 58, Maxim of some sort, Beretta M12, maybe a MG42, Russian or Bulgarian AK74 and 47, short as physically possible sawed off double barreled 16 or 20 ga, maybe a street sweeper, FAL, G3, M14, M203 or a M79, M249saw,Ppsh41, RPK, PK, maybe a nice M4,more I can't think of right now. I know some of these guns are available but I live in a restrictive state and a full auto say AK47 is worth like a few hundred in a free market, not the thousands they command due to dumb laws in the USA.

    Suppressors for all kinds of stuff. Thompson submachine guns. BAR's. Browning 1919's. Probably wouldn't get a M2 because I could never keep it fed but then I might convince myself that it could live on a diet. Or that I want to work more overtime. Mk 19 grenade launcher.

    Probably wouldn't call GE inquiring about a minigun. I know durn well that I could never feed that thing.

    I am not a drinking man ,but I believe I could learn,just to celebrate with every body.Then I would really have to work overtime,cause I would need to build a big room to hold all the new guns.I think an M2 carbine would be fun,also.Always wanted one.

    Maybe components would be less expensive.

    That's what I would load up on. :D

    Than four years later when a liberal :evil: is elected and apoints his/her activists people to the courts, :what: our 2nd amendment is struck down and all our toys(tools) are taken away :fire: :cuss:

    Just remember, nothing good last forever.

    Yes, but if the SCOUS rules that way, the court would likely not reverse itself for a while. But I think you're right, components would be the way. Actually, I might be interested in a M16a4 and a Russian AK.
    That's about all I'd need

    I'd look to the sky, laugh, realize that I had never really escaped the island, and know that this was all another plot to make me confess the reasons behind my resignation.

    OKAY kiddies fun break is over...

    Puhhhhleeez! :neener:

    The sun has a greater chance of going super-nova while one reads these words than there is of the supremes overturning the '34 NFA and '68 GCA.

    Not gonna happen and it's a waste of oxygen and brain cells even to imagine it ever will...

    And no I am not a pesimist - I am a realist! I live in the real world not one with pink skies and blue bunnies.

    OKAY kiddies - y'all can go back to your fun now...

    Nothing. I can't afford anymore guns right now, I wouldn't be able to after the ruling.
    But eventually, quad .50's on the room of my house, and a single .50 in the bed of my truck. And mortars, I want mortars.

    OK, I'll play nice.

    Assuming FA prices came back down to pre-86 levels and with no tax stamp, I'd start with a couple MAC 10's at about, what were they, $200-250? I could afford that immediately, then my wish list would go as such:


    M2HB

    MG42

    DShK 12.7

    DPRT

    M60

    M249

    M79

    Mk18? (auto grenade launcher)

    ASUS-12

    MP5SD

    MP5K

    Walther MPK

    M1928A1

    M1981A2

    a stockpile of M72A1's

    a pile of M18A2's

    A Jati-matic

    Mk23 SOPMOD, with can.

    Ruger MkII, with can.

    and yes, while not restricted in WI, an M82A1.

    Reloading supplies for all the above. (except the .22 and Berdan-primed.)

    I’d have to go with a Browning Automatic Rifle. :D My grandfather carried a BAR for part of WWII (rest of the time he had an M1) and I would love to have one to go along with my Garand.
