    Hey All, just wondering whats hot on the "possibility of being banned list". I know I want to pick up a saiga 12 and probably a MPA Mac style pistol, but what else is out there that we may not be able to buy in the future? Thanks for any info.

    Its not the idea that I want to buy guns just because they may get banned, but I would hate to not get something I want because it is banned. In other words I would pass up a "soon to be banned gun" if I didn't really want it, but if their was a "soon to be banned gun" that I did want, it would jump to the top of my wishlist.

    With this administration, that may apply to ANY gun, even a single-shot .22!

    Depends, are you in any of the states that actually have been INCREASING gun control measures? If not, then probably none. Unless you end up seeing a landslide Democratic election in 2012. In which case, potentially anything that would fall under the prior AWB.

    Though, I honestly doubt there'll be enough popular support, nor enough congresspeople willing to give up their seat in the next election to vote any more controls in. I'd only be worried if you start seeing a lot of polls going for more gun control.

    Pretty much, like I said, only real threat is if you start seeing more popular support for gun control measures. Remember, elected officials in congress don't have term limits, and it tends to be an easy gig for them overall, they tend to like to KEEP the job. They tend to vote in methods to ensure they will continue to:
    A) Keep getting donations from large contributors.
    B) Keep getting elected.

    Gun control votes aren't a good way to keep doing that for the vast majority of elected officials.

    A) .50 BMG: Who but a terrorist would want that much firepower?

    B) I expect that more and more states will adopt rules restricting the size of detachable magazines. This will allow politicians to claim that they are passing legislation to protect their citizens from tragedies like the one at Virginia Tech.

    C) I expect that additional states will ban long guns with detachable magazines, a/k/a "assault weapons." Like it or not, California is a leader to many in things like this.

    I'll suggest a gun that WILL cease to be available eventually. An M1 Garand from the CMP.

    If you are afraid of a gun ban, buy a lot of AR stripped lowers. You can get them as low as 60 each and ad the parts to make them ARs later. The lower is the receiver which is considered the firearm. Everything else is just parts and not regulated.

    I'll suggest anything that remotely looks or operates like a military issue rifle.

    Seeing as how the Second Amendment was designed to allow the People to be as well armed as the military in order to actually be capable of resisting tyranical government, these will be the first weapons "banned".

    Here's what to look for IMO...
    -removable mag.
    -semi auto
    -centerfire
    -affordable*

    I mention affordable because, as everyone knows, anytime a good gun comes out that is affordable to the masses, it terrifies the Liberal Elite. Heck, even poor quality weapons at an affordable price scare them, because they know that when the masses are armed, The People have the power, not the Liberal ruling class. Such is the reason the 2A is so hated/feared by the Libs.

    Man, everytime I get on here I rant don't I?
    Sorry...kinda...

    This might be a good start.

    Kel Tec PLR .223. I bought two.

    I bought this Turkish ATI 92C. I like it so well and I figure any import gun is in danger of being banned at any time, I bought two more. (Friends bought 5 more)

    Study up on the United Nations Small arms treaty which this DC Admin. is pushing for. I have not yet looked at the details in the paperwork, but it sounds like it's in the pipeline. Won't matter which state you live in. :cuss:

    I'd suggest buying what you want then. I don't think anyone can tell you what might get banned, and we certainly can't tell you what you want.

    I could see the Saiga shotguns becoming relabeled as "Destructive Devices" soon, and as M2Carbine stated, "Imports" as neither would require Congressional action, just Treasury honcho and Exec Order... writing a few words on paper... and presto chango, Voila! Verboten. Saigas would be impacted by both... sporting purposes not-with-standing.

    If the past has shown us anything, "shall not be infringed" means squat, er, I mean, "reasonable regulations".

    Say that with me. "Shall Not Be Infringed" means "Reasonable Regulations". Make sense? Sure.

    Buy whatcha want. I remember once hearing Ted Kennedy speak of banning the cop killer .30-30 round... but then, talk is cheap and anything is possible. :rolleyes:

    Best answer so far is............

    The climate for guns in the U.S. is more favorable now than for the last several decades. Look at the record sales of new guns lately, and these are everyday folks buying everyday guns. Look at the amount of primetime T.V. guns shows, as opposed to ten years ago. I doubt very much that there will be any major "banning" at the federal level any time soon of guns that are readily available now. We have much bigger priorities and politicians have read the writing on the wall. Two years ago the shortage of guns and ammo was consumer produced because of a threat that was assumed, but non-existent. Just ask those that paid way too much for their ARs back then...........

    I agree with CoRoMo....get what you want and what you think you need. Makes more sense than just to buy something because some stranger on a internet forum wearing tin foil, tells you to.

    The "sporting purposes" clause no longer applies to imported shotguns. Frankly, I wouldn't worry about massive, sweeping bans anytime soon.

    Repeating this as Buck has his head screwed on perfectly straight. Buy what ever you actually might like to shoot, and will actually shoot, now, today and tomorrow. We aren't really facing any credible gun ban threats at the moment and the tide of gun control is still heavily on the ebb, as it has been for the last decade or so.

    Buying something really crappy, unergonomic, bulky, and generally useless (like a semi-auto MAC-10 clone) just because it might be banned someday doesn't make a lick of sense, unless you're preying on the nuttyness of others -- thinking you'll sell it for a fortune to some other sucker after the ban comes down.

    Earlsbud has the best advice in the whole thread. There are some guns which are of tremendous quality, history, and utility which are becoming less and less available for utterly inevitable reasons which have nothing to do with politics and gun bans. If you haven't taken care of some of the "basics" like an M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, 1903/'03A3, etc., then you're being penny wise and pound foolish to worry what the current or next administration thinks about goofy semi-auto sub-gun clones.
