Lets' say Mr Smith has $2000

Mr Smith has many pistols,revolvers & shotguns than he can count on two hands and one samurai sword.

I forgot to mention he lives in Kalifornia.

Should Mr Smith buy a RIFLE or AMMO for his other toys.

Mr. Smith

I would buy more ammo for my toys that I have.

But we don't have a choice. Some, like me, were born here, our families are here and our jobs are here.

Would be rather be in a friendlier state that recognizes our second amendment rights...

HELL YES!!!

But that's not an option for most of us.

Mr Smith

should buy more ammo. better yet, get a reloading setup. That 2000 bucks will get a good setup and allow for much cheaper shooting in the future.

but

I figure... common rounds (especially hunting rounds) will be around forever. the prices may go up and quanity may go down, but they will still be in production. some rifles may not be.

Good call, I didn't notice at first that franko didn't list any rifles. Mr smith definitely needs a rifle, screw the reloader, get a rifle. And a reloader.

...and I forgot he was in cali. All of the rifles that I'm refering to are already illegal there anyway (or had their balls cut off).

my bad franko, I don't really know what I'm talking about. can you guys own a socom? it has a detachable mag, so I don't think so. how about a good old fashion sks?

I think SKS

Why bother paying the money for a CA legal AR, when the SKS holds as many rounds and is cheaper.

The fall under curio and relic,so deemed by the gun banners or something. As a matter of fact I just bought one today, but I'm in Az. I'm pretty sure they're still legal in Ca. though.

This is the legalities on SKS's in California. The Russian, Albanian, Romanian, and Chinese are all legal in CA given the fact that they have a fixed 10 round or under magazine, do not have a grenade launcher attachment, and do not have a folding stock. The bayonet has to have been originally attached, cannot be a aftermarket add on. Th Yugo M59/66 is illegal based on the fact that it has a grenade launcher attachment. I believe that if a yugo's launcher attachment is taken off and replaced with a muzzle brake that they are legal. All this based on extensive research of CA DOJ issue 2007.

Oh, 1 additional SKS

Chicnese Norinko Sportster is illegal based on it's shorter barrel and stock.

You sound right.

Nothing with a folding stock is legal there as best as I can remember. I'd love to go back and live next to my friends and family but I refuse to ever live in Ca. again. Of course if Obama and his idealogs have their way, we'll all live in something similiar to what is currently Ca.
