My mom's fiancee justy called me to let me know he just bought a bushmaster M4gery today. They wouldn't let him take it home because he forgot one piece of paperwork, so he's taking delivery of it TOMORROW. Darn. I really miss living in Las Vegas, no b.s. waiting periods, no EVIL feature restrictions. His biggest problem was, "Do I get a Bulgy AK or a Bushy M4?" Sure wish that was my only problem. Only thing I had to look forward to was installing the new firing pin on my G22 bullpup. I try to justify it by saying we have a nicer climate...

Enjoy it while you can. I think a large battle against semi-auto rifles looms large in the not so distant future. :mad:

There is some serious federal legislation coming in a couple years. I think it may surpass even California standards.

and again thousands upon thousands of people will not register their rifles, this time nationwide, as happened in PRK.
Think incrementalism though......
Too big a push and it will be the spark that sets the brushfire....

A good reason to visit Vegas.

As a native Californian and one-time resident of Las Vegas, I can only say it was a nice place to play and work but after two years it was even nicer to move back to California. I enjoyed living in working in Vegas, you could snow ski and water ski in the same day if you wanted, (Mt Charleston, Lake Mead) and I had job working for a company that supplied materials to the nuclear test site, (today I'm pretty sure the stuff was going to area 51) Sorry, can't say what I did other then that we supplied very odd small parts that were supposedly used for underground nuclear tests..

So, did you get to see any of those reverse engineered alien spaceships flying around Groom Lake at night? They don't do nuclear testing anymore, it's all simulated in computers now. Nevada will someday become the biggest nuclear waste dump in the world if Harry Reid doesn't kill off Yucca Mountain. If it were me, I would trade the high cost of living, smog, crowded roads, and socialist laws of CA for Nevada.

Thats an interesting outlook. Care you share your source of information?

Personally I see things getting better now that gun owners around the country are finally really comming together through the internet by discussing and mobilizing against gun control matters, like here on Calguns. We are now a true community of gun owners that are demanding our right to keep and bear arms, not just individuals that have guns.

As a community we are making a difference here and around the country, and if we continue to bring people into our community through education and good times we will succeed in our goal of prserving the 2nd Amd for generations to come.:)

I remember on the days they would explode a underground nuke, they would announce it over radio and TV. We would place stacks of flatwashers on the ground and watch them topple as the blast wave rippled thru the ground. If you wore lose pants, they would ripple as if an invisible wind was passing just inches above the ground. At that time nobody spoke about UFO's or Area 51.

I was living in California when I started hearing about Groom Lake and reversed engineered UFO's. A new nightime talk show host named "Art Bell" was discussing his own experience with a huge black ship that silently floated over his car as he and his wife were driving back to Pahrump from Las Vegas. I never saw any UFO's, little gray aliens or giant floating triangles but maybe I just wasn't paying attention....
