  1. Moving out of MA - Change of Address (yes, another thread about that...)

    My MA LTC was like a boat to me. The second best day I ever had was when I first got it (moving in from Maryland to a green town) and the best day I ever had was when I did nothing and just let it expire (moved to VA). Do nothing and carry on. When dealing with .gov, there are some situations...
  2. Ejection Port Won’t Close - Is this upper out of spec?

    Has the cover ever closed or is this a new problem? I don't see anything wrong with your hinge pin now that you posted the close-ups.
  3. Ejection Port Won’t Close - Is this upper out of spec?

    Well your finger is in the way but it looks to me like the forward pivot point of your dust cover hinge pin is either bent, not seated, or your handguard has rotated, raising the pivot point. Also it looks like your mag release button needs screwed in a bit more. The pin in the center should be...
  4. Does your spouse know how many guns you own?

    Without doing an actual inventory, she could probably estimate it as well or better than I could. And she shoots better, so I've got that going for me.
  5. What color furniture for AR?

    Here's the thing. You really need one in each basic color, and then something "out there" for those times when you are feeling frisky. You don't want to use the same color every day, and you certainly don't want to show up at the range with the same color as the guy in the next bay. I mean OMG...
  6. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Update to my post above on active VA anti bills: SB 69 One handgun purchase per month, with exceptions including CCW holders. Has now passed Senate and House. The House version removed the exception for CCW holders. So this will now go to a joint committee I assume. All the other bills status...
  7. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Here is an update to the current status of VA proposed anti laws. I didn't include Senate bills in the previous version. These statuses are current as of today but I cannot say that I've caught every single bill in process that might affect the 2A (VA Legislature site still sucks). HB 2...
  8. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Let me take a stab at the current status. These are the VA bills that are designated "pending" as of today. All others have either been voted down or left in committee: HB 2 requires background checks for all transfers, with enough exceptions (including gun shows) that I can't see why it even...
  9. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Gotcha. Thanks, good info. All they need is two of those coming across the line, unless some RINO goes the other way.
  10. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Why do you think that? Not being argumentative, just want to know what specifically will make the Senate less likely to pass it. Yes this was a big blow in more ways than one. I figured there would be enough Dim House members who would rather keep their jobs at the trough than pass the bill. I...
  11. Biden Talks About Using Hellfire Missiles Against American Gun Owners

    I didn't say they don't have a duty to not follow unlawful orders. I said that is not written anywhere in the UCMJ. Soldiers who committed atrocities in Vietnam who tried the "I was only following orders" defense have been convicted regardless. But the reason they tried that defense in the...
  12. Biden Talks About Using Hellfire Missiles Against American Gun Owners

    The military has an oath-sworn obligation by the UCMJ to follow lawful orders from superiors in their chain of command. They do not have an obligation to NOT follow unlawful orders. That is a vague but important distinction. If an individual decides that an order is unlawful, then by the UCMJ...
  13. Biden Talks About Using Hellfire Missiles Against American Gun Owners

    Dear god. Every time I listen to him I realize he is more stupid than I thought before. And this is their moderate candidate? The good news is he is tanking himself. The bad news is that he will keep talking and eventually completely remove himself from consideration by the Dims, and they will...
  14. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Everything I said above is wrong. Apparently I was reading the proposed language while it was still being revised. There IS a proposed new version of 18 2-308.9 and it DOES include all the usual stupidity--pistol grips, threaded muzzles, telescoping stocks, etc. etc. So this is much worse than I...
  15. Gun Confiscation Coming in Virginia

    Hmm. That bill (IANAL) just allows localities to pass restrictive measures above and beyond state law. At this "particular juncture" (channeling GHWB), over 90% of VA counties, towns and localities have adopted 2A sanctuary. Yes, the commie counties around DC and VA Beach MIGHT do something...
