  1. Seen mint Colt prebans complete going for under $1k. KTP had a Bushie preban for $700 not too long ago. Praise the Kenyan.
  2. Remember the great AR15 grab of 2009? RGuns is now selling DPMS OEM stripped, forged lowers for $55. Perhaps that lowest price EVER on 1st quality lowers. Conclusion: Obama is trying to sell America on AR15's; ie Evil Black Rifles. He has also made ammo a lot cheaper than it was a few months ago, with Wideners carrying 1st quality IMI from Israel for the FIRST time in 9 years. Dang!
  3. Conditions under the 1999 Gun Act To purchase a firearm in a commercial shop, one needs to have a Waffenerwerbsschein (weapon acquisition permit). A permit allows the purchase of three firearms. Everyone over the age of 18 who is not psychiatrically disabled (such as having had a history of endangering his own life or the lives of others) or identified as posing security problems, and who has a clean criminal record (requires a Criminal Records Bureau check) can request such a permit. To buy a gun from an individual, no permit is needed, but the seller is expected to establish a reasonable certainty that the purchaser will fulfill the above-mentioned conditions (usually done through a Criminal Records Bureau check). The participants in such a transaction are required to prepare a written contract detailing the identities of both vendor and purchaser, the weapon's type, manufacturer, and serial number. The law requires the written contract to be kept for ten years by the buyer and seller. The seller is also required to see some official ID from the purchaser, for such sales are only allowed to Swiss nationals and foreigners with a valid residence permit, with the exception of those foreigners that come from certain countries (Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Albania, Algeria), to whom such sales are not allowed even if they do have a residence permit. Foreigners without a residence permit or from countries on the ban list must ask for a special permit. After turning 18, any individual can buy singleshot or semiautomatic long arms (breech-loading or muzzle-loading) without a permit (so-called "free arms"). Likewise, members of a recognized rifle association do not need a buying permit for purchasing antique repeaters, and hunters do not need one for buying typical hunting rifles. Basically, the sale of automatic firearms, selective fire weapons and certain accessoires such as sound suppressors ("silencers") is forbidden (as is the sale of certain disabled automatic firearms which have been identified as easily restored to fully automatic capability). The purchase of such items is however legal with a special permit issued by cantonal police. The issuance of such a permit requires additional requirements to be met, e.g. the possession of a specific gun locker. Most types of ammunition are available for commercial sale, including full metal jacket bullet calibres for military-issue weapons; hollow point rounds are only permitted for hunters. Ammunition sales are registered only at the point of sale by recording the buyer's name in a bound book. [edit] Changes due to the Schengen treaty The rules laid out above were changed on 1 December 2008 as Switzerland joined the Schengen treaty; and all member countries must adapt some of their laws to a common standard. Following the draft of the Swiss government for the new Waffengesetz (weapons law), these points will change: Unlawful possession of guns will be punished. Gun trade among individuals will require a valid weapon acquisition permit: this is, from a Swiss point of view, a radical restriction that is assumed will undercut private gun trade dramatically. Every gun must be marked with a registered serial number. Airsoft guns and imitations of real guns will also be governed by the new law. Only one weapon may be purchased per weapon acquisition permit: Presumably, this will dry out the market for relatively cheap used guns, including popular collector's items such as Swiss army revolvers from the late 19th/early 20th century. Weapons acquired from an individual in the last ten years (which did not require a weapon acquisition permit) have to be registered. As a central weapons register was politically unfeasible, the authorities hope to get an overview of the market through this registration requirement. While the above mentioned "free arms" remain exempt from the weapon acquisition permit, the vendor is required to notify the local arms bureau of the sale. [edit] Buying ammunition Ready ammunition of the Swiss Army. Every soldier equipped with the Sig 550 assault rifle used to be issued 50 rounds of ammunition in a sealed box, to be opened only upon alert. The ammunition was to load into the rifle magazine for use by the militiaman should any needs arise while he was en route to join his unit. Any other use than this, or even unsealing was strictly forbidden. This practice was stopped in 2007 due to safety concerns. The government subsidizes the production of military ammunition and then sells the ammunition at cost. Swiss military ammo must be registered if bought at a private store, but need not be registered if bought at a range. Registration consists of entering your name in a log at the time of sale. No serial numbers are present on the individual cartridges of ammunition. Technically, ammunition bought at the range must be used at the range, but according to David Kopel "the rule is barely known and almost never obeyed."[2] Ammunition for long gun hunting is not subsidized by the government and is not subject to any sales control. Non-military non-hunting ammunition more powerful than .22 LR (such as custom handgun ammunition) is registered at the time of sale.[10] [edit] Recreational shooting Recreational shooting is widespread in Switzerland. Practice with guns is a popular recreation, and is encouraged by the government, particularly for the members of the militia.[11] Swiss firearms-related rights are supported by the organization ProTell. 200,000 people attend the annual Feldschiessen weekend, which is the largest rifle shooting competition in the world.[2][12] Hunting rifles have special exemptions under Swiss law. Purchases from dealers of hunting long guns and of small bore rifles are not even recorded by the dealer. In other words, the dealer would not record the sale of a .30-06 hunting rifle, but would record the sale of a .30-06 M1 Garand rifle.[2] According to chapter 2 article 10 of Swiss law, people over the age of 18 do not need a permit to purchase a rifle for use in hunting, off-duty shooting and sport-shooting events.[10] In addition, there are several private shooting ranges that rent guns. It is possible to go shooting with minimal supervision and without an id-check.
  4. Libs love guns. Sex too. Most schools had guns. Reps were the ones that got them banned if I recall.
  5. Walk around NYC on March 17. White people's style looks pretty retarded.
  6. Center console in December? Props to you!
  7. I have not thought about Tiger in years. Gotta say, this story gives me some respect for him. He has a new fan.
  8. I had it last week I think (seasonal flu shot but no swine flu shot, got some kind of flu a month later = swine flu ???) Worst sickness I have had in my life. Worse than kidney stones, worse than being seasick going into a 3 day trip. I know dozens of people who have been vaccinated against swiune flu. None had any adverse effects.
  9. Doesn't active duty have freedom of speech?
  10. Hang crabs from a dock. Greens 2 months, whites 2x that, maybe 50% mortality.
  11. Unless you call the capt's mama and scare the crap out of her, it never happened.
