50 of them. But in my defense, the FBI really does have a much better collection of guns than about anyone, and I never bothered actually timing myself on filling out the ATF Form 4473, but I do know the form number.

I'm still wiping the tears off, one of the funniest things ive read for awhile.. and i was starting to get a little scared, about every two or three things im thinking yeah that's actually me.. by the end i was laughing but felt sorta weird (gosh ya think!) anyway glad others have filled out more yellow sheets than tax forms as well.. i do have two or three groups ive cut out and one i carry around in my wallet, i know for a fact that if ecaman and i ever talk face to face every other word will just be S&W numbers (yep everyone of them, and the names when they have em) i have on more than one occasion done the "about" thing cause i wasn't sure on the exact number in the house..and here's one not on Lucky's list .. if ya ever find weapons you forgot you had stashed around the house for SHTF time.. and if its happened more than once.. cross my heart time!

incident back in Kansas after a night of drinking (before the young 'un was born) and I was in my car, getting ready to leave when the cops showed up. I don't know where I was going, just that I wanted to go somewhere. Anyways, one cop stayed with me and started questioning me, another went upstairs to our apartment. I'm down by my car when the wife yells out the window "This guy wants to know where the gun is", to which I reply, "Which fuckin' gun". She says all of them, and I start trying to remember where they're all at. Finally, she just tells the cop she doesn't know, and sits down on the couch and realizes the Beretta is in the couch cushions. We kinda made up and the cops said their goodbyes, and I ask if it's okay that I take my rifle out of the car to go back upstairs. the cop says okay and about shits a brick when I pull out my M4 with rail, EO Tech, weapon light and laser. I told the cop "Hey, a guy's gotta be ready, right?"

When i first moved to AZ in 78 you could take weapons into a bar.. they had to be checked with the bartender, and kept unloaded till the customer left.. Looking back at it, this seems funny, and i don't know when they changed it but I assure you it was the case.. Ok so anyway i rode full time back then.. broke down in about 84 and bought a van that i used for camping and wimping out when the weather was rough, but before that it was the scoot or walk..

As you go into Tucson from the North on 10 there was an old biker bar.. Have no idea if its still there or not, but for a couple of years i would always stop if i was over in that end of town.. The bartender (woman, and yep cute) could strip any piece as quick as a DI.. This was sorta a joke to all of us, and course she knew we got a kick out of it so showed off a bit for tips.. This was back before the wonder 9's made thier arrival.. cept for brownings.. but didn't matter what you brought in.. or if it was in condition 1 or what.. BAM..she'd drop the mag, cycle the slide, catch that round if it was condition one, and leave it with the slide locked back, mag and round along side of it till you left.. So cool, With Revolvers she would just drop the cylinder and rounds and place them along side the piece.. Wonder if this brings back any memory for anyone else.. I was new to town, and only saw it in that one bar, but remember everyone saying it was legal..

Hillary makin my skin crawl is the only one I am guilty of, but I'm workin on more. If we could add, you have your next 3 guns you are going to buy picked out before you buy them, I'd be up to 2.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

Me too!

I'm not quite up to the 50% mark, but I'm over the 33% mark. It took me a minute to catch my breath after reading it. It gave me the hiccups then managed to cure them too. hmmmmmm gotta wonder about that one.

"If you know there's no such thing as a 45 caliber 230 grain full metal jacketed hydra-shock hollow points from Federal"

It's the 16th from the bottom. I don't know why I didn't catch it the first time. Probably laughing too hard from the others.

I read that (FMJ JHP)... I thought I posted that already. Guess not. I think it was written by an undercover liberal brady/clinton/holder etc.. camp member trying to infiltrate our bang stick community. Their cover is blown!
