Guess my attention span is too short and my apathy level too high, but as soon as "chapter 1" came on, my interest waned. LOSER!!!!!

I've said before, I think most people who become cops do so because they were picked on a lot in school and want respect. The clips I did watch seem to support that. And, as I said in my previous comment, THEY ALL BLEED!!!

I got as far as the lady they stripped down for no reason before I really got pissed. Bring those assholes to my house, I'll deal with them myself. I can't believe this. I'd like to give the cop his 20.00 in person also.

You're right

You have to go for the head or use rifles when dealing with them.

ing... I took my Camp 9 to Lawsons or Clawsons, 5 blocks down & up Richey Rd. This place is a trip. Every known to man machine tool all manually controlled. I am sure that they could build you a gun there.

I didn't know Murphy's ever did 'smithing work. I recently found them. They are, by far, the best source for primers in this area, and their shotgun ammo is even cheaper than Wal-Mart's, so that's why I love 'em. I'm going to take a couple soldiers up there at the end of the month, and I'm gonna stock up on 00 Buck. My goal is to have my right pec muscle one big bruise after one range session. It'll be fun.

I am in the process of getting my FFL. Can I then cut my own shotgun bbl to legal shortest length? You seem to be up on this stuff. I have an extra old Remington looks like a Browning A5. Would like to make a short bbl auto out of it.

I have heard yes and no to that question, so I would nather not give an official answer because I'm not positive. I've heard that you can do it as long as you keep the barrel longer than the 18" limit, but I've also heard greasy say that a registered gunsmith is the only one allowed to do it. I know someone that I can call and get a definate anwser, I'll let you know

for the answer. I called asking whether I was required to have a bill of sale when selling the gun to another person or if it was just a good idea, and that dumb bitch kept talking about having to transfer it through a licensed dealer so the buyer could register it. I kept explaining that registration wasn't a requirement in this state, and she kept on saying it had to go through a dealer. There's one of the experts who does the compliance inspections, ladies and gentlemen. Gotta love F Troop.

but anyone can build a gun for them selves, it's not against the law to build a semi auto weapon of correct length. therefore you can cut your barrel just as many have to build a shotgun as long as it's no shorter that 18".

Only a class 2 manufactor not a gunsmith is required to build if you are going to sell on the market.

I'm still positive

you only need a gunsmith license if you are going to do work for money or if someone is going to drop off a gun and come back for it. You don't need a license to do work on your own weapons as long as you don't convert it, alter the serial number, or cut it down to below the legal limits. What's the difference between cutting a 26" barrel down to 18" and buying an 18" replacement barrel? None at all.

SamD - Shotgun Barrel

I asked this Question awhile back, and got alot of mixed answers. I finally called all the gunsmiths in my area and found one that did it for 35 bucks. For that he cut it to legal length and reinstalled a Hi-Viz sight. He would have reblued it, but the gun is camo, so I taped it off and used OD green spray paint. You can get it done cheap if you just shop around some.

according to my buddy

who is a gunsmith at SGC, anyone can do it as long as its above the 18" limit. He said he would usually charge around $40 to cut the barrel, and another $15 if you wanted him to drill in and add a bead on the front. It would also cost more to re-thread the barrel for chokes.

Final answer according to a liscensed gumsmith... you can do it yourself he just suggests that you add another 1/8"-1/4" to the 18" limit to leave a little room for error.

See, how smart am I? Reaper, you have friends at the SGC? Damn, you're a high-falutin' fella, huh? I bet you lift a pinky when you apply lube to your guns, don't you?

you know it

I also lift my pinky when I sip my white wine spritzer and eat caviar.

I bought so many damned guns from those guys, I've had a free membership there since it opened. They actually have the lowest gun prices around (because they make all their money on memberships) they sell guns very close to their wholesale price not to mention mil/fire/leo discounts.

cheaper guns, you say? I was going on leave to Disneyland but finally convinced the wife that our son is too young to really enjoy it, so I'm going to take her to see the Grand Canyon, and I already asked her if we could stop off at the SGC, just to see it. Maybe I'll come away with something good. How are their prices on accessories and ammo?

accessories and ammo are pretty normal. Plinking ammo is a little high because they sell it to people that come to the range, but defense ammo isn't bad at all. If you're still wanting the squad scout, they usually have a couple in stock. Thats where I picked mine up for 1200 a couple years back. I maybe able to help out a little on the price as well. send me a message if you come up.

But I've been buying guns so fast that I have to outfit the ones I have. My big priorities are a conversion for my Saiga, a Surefire light and supressor for my M4, a Surefire forend light for my Mossberg, and a Vang Comp barrel job for the Mossberg. I still can't decide what I want my next gun to be. I'll probably go the way of BOHICA arms or a nice Remmy 700 to build up.
