  1. Seizing and destroying packages that were legally accepted for shipment and contain no illegal items, would or should have a huge liability associated with it.
  2. IL republicans are a lot like KS republicans. They all feel good when they lose elections by sticking to their rabid conservative ideology. The winners of elections get to make the rules, so you should prioritize supporting candidates that can win, then refocus those winners on your agenda.
  3. My interpretation is that now that strict scrutiny is in place at the top of the legal food chain, it makes "activist" judges decisions more risky as they will not stand when pushed upwards in the legal food chain. It's unfortunate that they will continue to rely on whether the side they rule against can muster the resources to push the case upward.
  4. So you can be in possession of a full-auto weapon in IL and only be charged with a misdemeanor?
  5. Seeing as the IL DMV sends me nasty-grams about renewing my DL and updating insurance information for my vehicles, and the IL Dept of Revenue is demanding copies of my IL State tax returns for the last 3 years, even though I have not lived or worked in IL, I am coming over to vote. Who should I vote for?
  6. I forgot that he needs some help to try and get elected. Explains what just happened. Democrats never afraid to sacrifice an ethnic group for their cause.
  7. I heard of them doing this in Rockford from a neighbor who was deep into one of the local motorcycle brotherhoods, as well as seeing it for myself in Brazil and Argentina. I believe they use something like the S&W 6906 that was an all metal pistol and they sandcast the frames, I believe using the lost wax technique. If you have cheap labor and lots of time I guess it works. There used to be a pit you could shoot at north of Clinton WI where I encountered some assumed Rockford gang members testing their homemade pistols. They were really proud of them, but they were really rough. They must work because I heard shots as I was leaving. I left quickly because it was a little scary.
  8. So the hundreds of S&W pistols the gangs have that are all sand-cast off of the same master and have the same serial number are still OK. Good to know.

    Gun prices

    Here in central IA it looks like all the big orders the gun shops placed when guns were in short supply have started to be filled and the market has cooled, so they are now starting to be somewhat overloaded on inventory.
  10. I bought a very nice CZ 550 in .375 H&H in the Anchorage Sam's Club. Took it over to Wild West Guns to have a scope put on it. Those days are long gone.
  11. I had real body armor when I was in KS. Made in KS and legal at that time to be sold in KS. It was fairly comfortable. The plate carriers seem like they are really heavy and would slow a person down. Unfortunately there's no common sense when it comes to the ban and cancel culture.
  12. Was it someone from the state or your employer that told you that you could get the help and not lose your job? Do you have documentation of that, such as a letter or email from that person? Who approved your leave of absence for the treatment? Did they correctly inform you of the post treatment actions? You might need a good employment law attorney.
  13. I like Steve Lehto's Youtube videos! I have no clue how good of an attorney he really is, however he can put legaleze into language everyone can understand.
  14. Sometimes you have to wonder about how they manipulated the data. It says "recovered" in 2013 to 2016, however it doesn't say when the guns were sold, or if the gun was recovered from the original buyer. If those guns were sold over the prior 20 year period (not sure how long Chuck's has been in business) then that's a different statistic, and then you have to factor in if that gun was legally sold by the original purchaser and now whoever possesses the gun had it confiscated by the police (and we would need a breakdown of why the police "recovered" the gun).
  15. If they really cared about the children they would let you take the cost of a gun safe as a credit against your taxes.
  16. Many Ruger 10/22 variants, however there seemed to be lots of WWII vintage M1, Garand, and other models of that era. Browning A5's were also popular. A couple people had more recent AR-15 rifles. I am not an expert on vintage military weapons, so not sure what all was represented. I used a borrowed Marlin 60 to plink away at the wascally wabbits.
  17. I worked on a couple of consulting projects in Australia. The estimate is that in the major cities maybe 50% of the banned firearms were turned in, and outside of those metro areas, maybe 10%. I worked out of Canberra and once they found out I liked to shoot and hunt they took me rabbit hunting, which at that time was more like our prairie dog hunting. Hundreds of rabbits running around in fields. Plenty of those banned firearms in use. In the rural areas no one seemed to care.
  18. I think it's time to invest in a Bait, Bullets, and Beef store right across the I-80 river bridge in IA. Drive through for ammo sales with a free sandwich if you spend over $250.
  19. I have the Springfield XDm-10 with the 4.5" barrel. I am not IL anymore. I love the gun, and the 10mm can be loaded to shoot mild .40 s&w loadings or full-house Buffalo Bore loads for hunting. With proper 10mm loads, it's a lot more of a kick than any of my .45's (Sig P220, SA 1911). I have it loaded with Hornady Handgun Hunter for deer season. Those loads will get your attention.
  20. So the illegally owned guns are not really coming from free states such as Indiana, Tennessee, Iowa, etc. as previously claimed? If you are a criminal organization and you need guns it's a whole lot more efficient to set some out of work machinists up with equipment and produce the guns you need, plus make it a profit center by selling them to other organizations. The cartels have been doing this for decades. You don't have to manufacture the most reliable or smoothest operating gun when it's basically a disposable item.
  21. Except for Alaska, where a non-resident property owner can purchase any style of firearm. As long as you have proof of property ownership and an Alaskan address, they never seemed to care.
  22. "Intense Provocation", wow is that a thing now? The sh$t I would of done had I known that was a legitimate defense strategy!
