If you guys have a gun in mind, and it's in the form of a pistol or rifle, you better get it this year. Reason why I say that is because if the supreme court doesn't shoot down CAs new gun laws, say goodbye to buying rifles and pistols in this state.
Starting next year, the bills that just passed expand the definition of an assault rifle by California standards. Basically all AR15s and AKs will be illegal, along with many other rifles out there on the market. The only way you can own one is if you bought it pre ban.
Next year you will need to buy a $50 annual ammo permit, that allows you to buy ammo in CA. Any purchase over 3000 rounds in a 5 day period will be reported to the CA DOJ, which will then be reported to your local law enforcement. From what I read somewhere, you'll need approval for the sale at that point. Might not be true, but I'm still looking into that particular part.
Pistols will need to be outfitted with a special part that stamps a serial number on the casing of every round fired. No firearm manufacturer is going to re-tool for that, it'll cost way too much to do that. Plus there's a lot of pistols out there that can't be outfitted for such a device.
Bullet buttons and removal mags on rifles will also be illegal.
So... if you guys want an AK/AR, or even a pistol... I suggest you buy one within the next 6 months. I'm buying a Springfield M1A and a Springfield 1911 this year. The next purchase after that will be a Mossberg 590A1. After that, I have all the guns that I want, I'll be content.
Ammo is hard to find right now, but in due time the ammo boom will slow down, and ammo will be at least somewhat readily available again. I'm stocking up to 1000 rounds for every single firearm, but that'll be the minimum amount for my inventory. I'm trying to convince my dad to stock up for 1000 rounds for his Remington 870 as well.
got the clutch and bell housing installed on the diesel motor. Went to put the oil pan on... and some of the bolt holes don't line up, haha! they are only off by a very small amount, I'll hit them with a stepped drill bit, and try again tomorrow
Isn't that frustrating though when things that are supposed to just don't line up?
I've got an AR, a Sig. 45 , Beretta 92fs brigadeer centauri over under 12 and 10, weatherbee 12 pump , smith and Wesson 44mag singe action long barrel and. 357 both with rubber grips. Also got a ruger. 22
Only gun I want and need is an hk usp. 45 with tac rails
Since we were on guns, does anybody else reload rounds?
I know a guy doing hospital cert and he told me about a guy who tried to kill himself because he thought his wife had died. He loads his own round and only used a half load of powder. Took two shots with the muzzle in his mouth and he was still kicking and talking like it didn't happen.
So if you hunt, don't load your own stuff or measure it properly. Ha
Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.
