    Doing well, I've been working in a warehouse since I got out but I've worked my way up to shipping which pays better then most jobs around here. My wife is a local cop - we've been pretty busy between buying a home last year and our two dogs. I don't miss the deployments - it's kind of nice to...

    I had to google PATFORSWA - how sad is that. Sounds like you're having fun - I miss some of the training we did at the MSST. I've dropped 30 lbs working in a distribution center but the highlight of my day is driving an electric pallet jack. Doing well though. My wife is still a LEO locally...

  5. Maine Laws

    Thank you for the information. I had recieved some conflicting advice based on what people *thought* the law (including my FFL). A lot of people automatically assume the federal age requirements for commerical FFL sales automatically applies to private party transfers in state.
  6. Maine Laws

    Does anyone know offhand if it's still legal to private sale transfer a handgun to someone 18 yrs or older? The NRA website says it is - however I couldn't find anything on the State of Maine website verifying this. Thanks. * I realize FFL's must sell only to 21 and over for handguns.

  9. NRA Basic Pistol courses in central Maine??

    Looking for an NRA Basic Pistol course in the central Maine area for my fiancee to take. Worse case scenario, I might be able to get her training down in NH, but I'm trying to get her set up soon for her Carry Permit. Thanks in advance. Edited to add - I found one in Augusta ME but its 250 bucks :o
  10. My KaBoomed AR15, Update May 2nd

    They don't have any valid email or website in the research I've done - or that a paralegal friend has done for me. The only info I know of is in the link I provided above with their street address and phone #. They rarely answer their phone/fax but such a number does exist. Needless to say -...

  12. My KaBoomed AR15, Update May 2nd

    I spoke to Maine Cartridge Company today. The owner is convinced he is not liable and denies any responsibility based on the fact that I do not have the original receipt and or packaging. While his original story was that his "gunsmith" has determined that the rifle had "fired out of battery"...
  13. My KaBoomed AR15, Update May 2nd

    The Bushmaster letter states a "squib round" but I dont see how that's possible from checking the barrel. I think by "squib" he refers to the one projectile lodged in the bore - without an additional round going down range. When I measured the length from chamber to stuck projectile and from the...
  14. My KaBoomed AR15, Update May 2nd

    I faxed MCC a copy of the Bushmaster findings along with my own cover letter today. I also sent a certified copy of this with mandatory return receipt. Ball is in their court now. I'll update when or if I receive a response from them - namely their registered agent for their corporation. I had...

    Bushmasters Response Letter recieved from Bushmaster's Technical Section Dear Sir, On inspection of your rifle, we found that the only Bushmaster component was the stripped lower reciever. The inspection did show that the headspace was within specification. Firing pin protrusion...
