    Bwahahahahahahahaha goes the NES members.

    Great thread. We're grumpy. We're liberal hating. (Well, OK.) Window lickers. Lesbians. Price gougers. And those were only the ones I guffawed at.


    I have truly been surprised at times what guns are available at what shops. I recall one new-ish shop that was plugging the G43 at the Plymouth show one Spring. "Uhhh, you're going to have G43's??" "Oh yeah!" OH NOES is what I thought. LOL. I believe they got a talking-to.

    But the onus is on the dealer. I have a couple of non-compliant guns in my arsenal bought from FFL's. Every time I asked them, "This is for sale here?" "Oh yeah!" is the response I got. Bokay!

    This couldn't possibly be sarcasm, could it?

    Took me a couple reads, but I think it was sarcasm done almost too well.

    I like my guns like I like my women; dangerous and lightly oiled.

    That was my master plan: to get the actual answer to my question in the first 3 posts then give the rest of you a 3 page yuk-a-thon.
