is the wait. Nothing like spending money for something that you might not see for the better part of a year – if all goes well. I ended up following my own advice and got something ready for a Form 3 instead of what I wanted; it would have been nice to have a can that worked on the mounts I already have, but you can’t always get what you want. One thing that was interesting is that I’ve bought all of my other Title II stuff at retail (essentially); using a local non-retail SOT, I got the can (with sales tax) for several hundred dollars under MSRP. Hurrah!
This also gives me a forcing function to pick up a major caliber rifle. Right now, I have a caliber gap between 223 and 50BMG; obviously, I got this can because it supports 300WM, so that’s the caliber I’ll be getting. I should have done this a while ago, but I ended up spending that money on a pickup truck I no longer want or need. I’m torn between selling it and keeping it; too small for me, but has actual 4WD and a locking rear diff. Maybe I should build it out as a technical in order to decrease the already pathetic gas mileage.
Cop with ride-along citizen respond to burglary-in-progress. Cop covers getaway vehicle, citizen jumps out and chases burglar. Other citizen sees what he thinks is a cop in danger, opens fire.
Really makes me re-evaluate not moving to Texas a couple years ago.
Video gets scary around 0:35 to 0:45. Nothing to watch after that; before that, you get to see an AWACS nearly take out a tanker.
To the surprise of exactly nobody in the AK47 market, Lancaster Arms was hit with another judgement; this time, for $70,000. I will use my internet funball and predict exactly $0 of this settlement will be paid, he’ll open shop under another name, and the cycle will begin again.
About 16 for the base platform, then you need to attach a camera to it – the camera is probably as much, again. I very much want a helicopterish camera platform with the speed and endurance of this one.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives conducted a late-night “enforcement operation” Thursday at the home of Harry McGowen, of rural St. Anne.
The address, 5961 Spruce Lane in the Hieland Road area, is also listed as the office of McGowen Rifle Barrels.
The Chicago office ATF information officer Thomas Ahearn reported Friday that “we cannot disclose any particulars, but I can say that there is an ongoing investigation.”
