Not to hijack, but looking at post #5, what the hell is a semi-automatic version of an automatic firearm?

That list is straight from the wordage in the MA AWB of what makes a firearm an assault weapon. Ask the gov't. while you're at it, as them why having something to prevent burning my hand is a bad thing... fking morons

The OP has been around long enough to take it. [wink]

That's for sure! I laughed when I read the first response, but couldn't come up with an appropriate response to do it justice.

I was half expecting a stern reminder about the search function which I would have fully deserved.

Thanks for the link to the answer...

:)

Id need bar graphs, pie charts, and a juvenile, male ocelot to explain that to you.

You must be a Salvador Dali wannabee who traveled with a pet ocelot. [smile]


Like many wild cats, ocelots are occasionally kept as pets. Salvador Dalí frequently traveled with his pet ocelot Babou,[SUP][41][/SUP] even bringing it aboard the luxury ocean liner SS France.[SUP][42][/SUP]

But, what if the firearm uses ammo measured in millimeters?

Sometimes the bullets will seem to fit, but you could damage the threading through regular use.

Be careful buying a used firearm from a plumber - if the barrel has NPT threading, it tapers, and you'll need corresponding NPT rounds. It's expensive, but fun to shoot - worth looking into handloading. You can get supplies from Cabelas or MSC.

Make sure to wrap all bullets in teflon tape if you're reloading. I prefer to dip them in thread sealing compound. A bit messy, but works better.
