Just looked back in my order history and saw that I was paying $189 per case of 1,000rds of brass 9mm last January, only shed a few tears for the Good Ol' Days...

It's insane

Can’t find primers anywhere other than way inflated prices on gunbroker. I kick myself every time I think about my many opportunities in previous years to stockpile...never again!

On that note, anyone have any lines on primers that aren’t ludicrous gunbroker price gouging?

Ruger PC Charger with a Glock mag well to accept Glock large cap (32 round), magazines.  I added the SB Tactical brace and a red dot.  Fits nicely in my go bag and easy to hang on the back of the seat in the truck.

Anyone who wants to protect their gun rights might want to watch a very important case Caniglia v. Strom that the Supreme Court of the United States has decided to hear.

It is a bit complicated but in short a married couple had a dispute and the police asked the male homeowner to come outside and talk, he did so voluntarily.   During the conversation the police determined he needed a mental evaluation so they took him into custody and in for a mental evaluation.  While he was being taken to the hospital a police supervisor ordered other officers to enter his home and seize his weapons, without a warrant.  He was assessed by a doctor and it was deemed he was not a threat so he was immediately released.  The police refused to return his weapons for several months.  Big implications for both the 2nd and 4th amendments.

Police confiscating and refusing to return weapons happens frequently.  With background checks making a case by case decision whether somebody can keep and bear arms, red flag laws, and stealing weapons over situations such as this we are already in a bad situation even without the new gun control laws that are being sought by the new administration.

I hope heads roll on that one, unbelievable. And the “lesson” they’ve taught, again, is don’t trust the police. That’s an invalid lesson and not applicable to 98% of cops, but shit like this makes people wholesale distrust all cops. I’ve always had positive interactions with police and appreciate they’re service to the community, but no matter how nice one is, they will never be allowed in my house, vehicle, etc. unless I have no legal choice.

TLDR:  Plaintiff in Hawaii was denied a concealed carry permit under Hawaii law in 2016 which went to 9th Circuit who upheld the lower court ruling that he was SOL.

So he applied for an open carry permit.  Which this ruling denied.  So, no 2nd Amendment right for him.

Quote

The 9th Circuit has now decided that there is no constitutional right to carry a gun outside the home for self-protection, placing the court in direct conflict with other circuits and strengthening the chance the Supreme Court will step in and decide the issue, Beck said.

 And I have zero faith that the Supreme Court will take this on.  Thanks John Roberts!

But I really hope they do.  Let's settle this once and for all.  And God help us if the decision is that there is no such "right."

Just another sign of the path our country is on, the Harris administration just filed a friend of the court brief in favor of warrant-less search and seizure.  It blows my mind that anyone could read our Constitution and even remotely recognize our current government as being derived from it other than the most basic structure.

SBR Form 1 took about 3 weeks from submission to approval through eForms. I’m shocked the gov could do anything that quick. All that to say the paperwork was a bit of a PITA to get together, but overall not too bad and totally worth it! Now to shoot this thing and hope it doesn’t blow up in my face (first AR I’ve completely built myself).

Indeed

When was the check cashed by the ATF?  Either way, you should receive the tax stamp within the next month I would imagine.  Below are the average current wait times over the last 3 months:

That's a good turn around.  My form 4 for a can has been sitting since Aug...

My F4 is a different story. 300+ days...fucking bullshit.

I was just going off the average time from the NFA tracker (mine is in an NFA Trust). Personally it’s been 3 months so far, but I’m expecting it to be another 6 months. Stamp was cashed about one month after F4 filed. Naturally I’ll get my can right in the middle of winter when it’s too damn cold to want to shoot.

Didn’t blow my fingers off! No video yet (the wife rolled her eyes at me when I told her to come out back and take a video), but shoots great. Now I feel the need to build another one...AR-10, why wouldn’t I need one? Can’t wait for the suppressor.

Boom!  9-0 against.
