In light of the 2014 registration and the possibility of a Bullet Button ban, are you planning on getting some long guns in the next year or so?

I just DROSed 3 AR lowers, but I still need to get a shotgun & a hunting rifle.

Hopefully and 870, a 700 and a Mosin
AR's will be 80%'s from now on.

As many as I can afford.

There's a couple C&R's I'd like to buy before my C&R basically becomes dead in 2014. Fortunaltely it expires in June of 2014 so I just won't renew it. In light of the possibility of a BB ban (and the subsequent possibility of a new period to RAW) I may have to finally break down and buy a FAL.

Let's get on the band wagon and cave in to hype. There won't be a ban on mag locks and, I'm not worried about "registration". I'll just keep homebuilding and let "them" kiss my big hairy toe.

You can't easily build a Remington 700 or a semi auto hunting shotgun at home.

As for registration, I'll be giving my wife & kids their own ARs before the deadline so at least they'll have a piece of history from the "good old days."

Actually, 700s are a pretty simple design which has been duplicated by more than a few home gunsmiths. Semi auto SGs would just take more time and many parts would have to be made from scratch but, it could be done too.

I'm gonna go dros a lower and get it together just to sit in the safe..
HAhahahaha
I say that now but in about a month I will be sick of looking at a incomplete gun and finish it..lol

maybe a shotgun.

I just bought 2 lowers and I'm still wanting one more shotgun and a bolt action.

05-22-2012, 11:51 AM
at this point, bolt rifle, pump shotgun, 10/22. I may also get another AR lower, but I my also go 80% again...

Whats the big deal when this bill goes into affect? I dont understand lol. We register our handguns and we still dros our long guns.

Its not like they're banning our long guns.

There is the next great idea - 80 % Remington 870 receivers. :)

No more or less than I would normally. Probably 4-6 new ones in the next 18 months.

Ditto. OTOH, I'm not up on the latest proposed legislation, nor the likelihood of it passing. What is being considered, proposed, or enacted such that 2014 is a seminal event?
But this does seem like the hysteria hotline lately...

I think one nice thing about the AR platform is the abilityto swap uppers for different purposes and calibers. So if you've already got an AR and wouldnt want to register anything new, just buy different uppers to cover your various purposes.

sharxbyte
05-22-2012, 1:31 PM
it's happening; already passed. its just taking effect. It just means that it will be easier for them to keep track of who all has guns and how many, so should it ever come to confiscation, they will know to either take your guns, or criminalize you if you refuse to give them up. I will however keep homebuilding as was stated above :)

darqhelmet
05-22-2012, 1:31 PM
Honestly 2 ar15 lowers. ( 1 KISS a4 build and 1 6.8 build)
1 pump shotgun
1 LR308 lower
PTR 91
Scar or ACR.

But I was buying all of that before the crazy hit.

Your ffl+coe still will exempt you from the 1 in 30 handgun rule right? I'd get it just for that.

Well...if you're already got registered handguns then you're on the grid already anyway.

The only way to aquire firearms that leave no paper trail are cash and carry private party sales in free states.

No use building 80% lowers at this time. Better to just buy a few and stuff them away. The Make, Model and Serial number isn't recorded on the current DROS form for long guns. Buy several at a time.

Also, long guns you own now won't require registration (yet). The GubMunt doesn't have a Clue what us Peasants (subjects) own. (yet)

As for the bullet button ban.....so far I just don't see that happening. We follow the law already; why criminalize law abiding gun owners.?

oops...was that rhetorical.?

I am not buying into the doom and gloom. They (whoever they are) are not going to take away the ability to own firearms. There have been too many positive steps in the right direction. If I have to register my long guns, I register my long guns and if the guys in the black helicopters and jack boots try to take my legally obtained firearms. Well we know what Mr. Heston had to say on that matter.

Don't let what some silly guy in San Francisco said get you all riled up.

cabinetguy
05-22-2012, 2:15 PM
im not planning on any, but I am looking into some sort of a mill to do 80% lowers. As far as bolt guns, mauser k98 actions are C&R and make for some nice rifles.

If it looks like the ban will be passed, I'll be DROS-ing 10 stripped lowers, if not more, and registering them as RAW's. I still think it is selfish that the next generation might not get weapons at all, but if it's inevitable, Ill stock up and than maybe, just maybe, go fishing and lose some

AK
stripped AR lower
shotgun

Nothing for me. I get turned off from buying guns when everyone starts going crazy buying everything they can get their hands on which only raises the prices.

Most of you guys are barely scraping by but you hear something gun related and get yourself In debt just because you are afraid of something.

223 ammo prices are up already because of you idiots.

Thanks!

That is..
If I do not move to another state, due to work, which may not be such a bad thing.

05-22-2012, 2:53 PM
2 complete rifles, and probably another 2 stripped receivers.

TacticalPlinker
05-22-2012, 3:37 PM
I picked 3. I doubt I'll have enough cash to do it before 2014, but I am hoping to pick up at least 1 AR stripped lower, 1 Mosin Nagant, and another AK.

Plenty of other guns I'd like to have, but besides a sidearm, that's my goal. Oh, and lots of ammunition!

just 3.

an O/U, Rem 1100, and a Rem 700. and maybe a 10/22 take down.

AK, AR, 10/22 will all be from 80%/flat from now on.

It's far from a new idea.

The only way to aquire firearms that leave no paper trail are cash and carry private party sales in free states.

Under federal law, that is not a legal way. However, there are legal ways to aquire undocumented firearms in Ca.

05-22-2012, 7:50 PM
Probably just one: I'm waiting for Steyr to release their "I can't believe it's not an AUG" CA-legal rifle.

Otherwise, not much that I really want to buy.

Although, if H&K releases a new version of the HK94, I'm in! ( Hey, I can dream, right? )

So one, possibly two.

Oh, and if Saiga finally makes their 22LR AK-105 clone - ok, that too.

But aside from those 3, there's not much that I'm interes...

Well, I have been waiting for Marlin to start selling 1894CSBLs for a while now. OF COURSE I'll be buying one.

Really, there are only 4 rifles that I'm interested in buying before 2014.

Wait, you said long guns, not just rifles, right? The Remington Versa Max Tacticool shotgun looks neat, and I'd like one of those.

That brings my count to 5.

Isn't Beretta bringing out a 22LR version of the ARX-160? That could be fun...

I see no point in sugar coat it, if you are buying because of fear you are an idiot.

You are not helping the shooting sports if your fear buying is contributing to the price gouging.

Just a couple months ago 223 ammo was $200 per 1,000. Today it's $300 per 1,000.

There are lots of replies to this thread that either start or end with "funds permitting". If that's you, your not rich so stop yourself before you fall victim to the fear marketing.

All right smittty, let's assume you have no fear, and that's fine. You therefore assume you can just walk into your local Walmart and buy a box of 223 whenever you want, and probably plan on stopping by on the morning of your range day.

So you stop by, but the shelves are empty. It could be because the Walmart didn't get any ammo last night, or because someone else bought it before you. In either case, you don't get your ammo.

So wouldn't it make sense to buy some when you see it in preparation for the day when you want to go shooting? It's not necessarily out of fear, it can also be just common sense.

I don't get my 1,000 round order from Walmart and I don't buy it on my way to the range.

I watch ammo prices because I compete and shoot regularly.

In a matter of couple of months the on-line ammo retailers have increased their price of 223 ammo by 50%. 9mm pricing hasn't increased as of yet.

This is my sport and I care about my fellow calgunners. If it gets too expensive we'll loose a lot of our shooters.

and I still want to find 2 shotguns ...

so I voted 5. I still might look into Dros 2 more AR lowers to give my kids when their older.
