Gun Thread (2-24-2013)

Boycotts and Law Enforcement

'An NC Gun Blog' has a good list of companies refusing to sell to New York law enforcement agencies. The list continues to grow, but we found our first bad apple this week.

Armalite is dead to me. Bob Owens explains why:

... Armalite is trying to play both ends against the middle. They want to say they are on-board with the boycott (sort of) to placate gun owners, but they aren’t; they’re still going to continue selling to individual police officers… just not to the departments.

Armalite will sell to every individual officer in the department that wants an AR-15, but they won’t sell to the department’s official purchasing agent. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge.

Westrom’s policy is condescending to gun owners, and is more insulting than a simple and honest, “no, we won’t stop sales to states that have made gun-owners second-class citizens.”

This is, quite simply, bullshit. Be sure to read the whole story on Bob's blog, and pay close attention to the letter from Armalite's ex-LEO CEO. What he's saying is, to borrow a line from Blade Runner, "You know the score, pal. You're not cop, you're little people!"

A state that doles out its citizens' subjects' civil rights based on a person's choice of profession (with a preference to those engaged in service to the state, natch) is an affront to liberty.

This Week's Wins In Blue States

The huge news of the week was that the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals let stand the ruling that requires Illinois to allow concealed carry.

A little closer to home, an "assault weapons" ban proposed in Westford, MA went down in flames.

Congratulations to the second amendment activists who led these charges.

Related: Oregon is pushing the worst bill seen to date after saying earlier in the week that the bill would be dropped.

Gun Of The Week

(answer below)

Marksmanship Award



The Doofus Files, Starring Joe Biden

Slow Joe took to dispensing gun advice this week with predictably hilarious results. Bob Owens did a nice job summarizing it:

Super-genius Joe Biden advises committing a felony instead of defending yourself

At PJM: Clueless Joe Biden’s felonious self defense advice will put you in prison

Is Joe Biden right? Comparing the double-barreled shotgun to the AR-15 for self defense


About That VA Letter

There was a report earlier in the week about the Veterans Administration reporting veterans who were going through guardianship proceedings to NICS, which would suspend without due process their right to purchase a firearm.

As usual, the guys at This Ain't Hell were all over this and have a great explanation of the facts.


Gun Of The Week - Answer

It looks like a Heckler & Koch G3/91, but it isn't. It's a CETME Model C, which used a roller-delayed blowback action inspired by the MG42's roller-lock system and was the precursor to the H&K.

3 The question becomes... how did Police somehow, by virtue of their Job, become citiznes with MORE Rights than normal Citizens?

They can Conceal Carry in most places without a permit... even when off duty.. in places where no one else can...

They can buy assault weapons... for personal use.... yet we cannot here in California...

And strangly enough... the MILITARY... ie those with the MOST training in Assault Weapons... cannot buy them for themselves... yet Police can?

We need to attack this double standard.... if a COP needs a PERSONAL Assault Rifle for self defense.... how can they say a Citizen does not.

15 "Tom Coburn claims the Senate isn't close to a deal. Prepare to be sold out on this one."

Since I'm prepared to be sold out on every single issue of moment by the GOP Senate contingent (illegal alien amnesty, Chuck Hagel, Sandy "relief" pork bombs, et cetera), one more sellout will come as absolutely no surprise.

And you can be sure that on any sellout, there will be McMaverick leading the way.

16 DAve- The .60 per rd price you just paid for 5.56. You're in CA right? Do you think that price is due to your locale or is the best you are seeing? I bought some about two-three weeks ago for .44 rd, but haven't seen anymore like that since.

32 16 CA. dems will be able to pass whatever they want because of their supermajority. We're waiting for the ax to fall. I'm expecting background checks for and no bulk or internet sales of ammo. There's pretty much no .223 or 5.56 to be found unless you can camp out and hit the retailers right when their shipments come in- and then they have a box limit. Ammo makers and retailers tell me not even anycomponentsfor at least 3 months, most say six. Lots can happen in that much time- I'd rather have and pay too much than get caught without- Oregon's outrageous new gun laws went into effect the day the laws were passed. Best I'm seeing is .65/rd. Average is .70. Anything less gets grabbed up by people who can just resell it for .20/rd more than what they just paid for it. Everyone's talking about some deal they just got (like .45/rd.), but noone can get that same deal again anymore

I talked to his source on the phone, maybe three weeks ago, and they acted like that was some sort of ancient history, not to be repeated for two years, which it may well be.

I'm thinking about going in to the custom gunleather business , holsters , gunbealts , and rifle slings , mostly . I've made about a dozen holsters and 5 double layer gunbelts . People seem to be happy with them , and I have had several inquiries from gunshops . It might be time to take the plunge .
Anyway I'm asking about the hordes favorite sidearms so I'll know which guns to keep holsters in stock for .
According to my limited research 1911's in full size and 4" seem to be favorites followed by mid size Glocks . I'll total up the hordes hogleg "Diversity" towards the end of the thread .

Thanks in advance

67 Rule #2 I assume you mean detachable magazine. The cheapest good new one would probably be Savage, it's an option on some models, check their site. The Remington 700 is the star of the set with the most custom parts and people have converted M14 20 round magazines for them, but the rifles cost 50 to 100 % more, 450 to 800 or so depending on variants.

Savaga and Steyr and others make "Scout" rifles, lightweight detachable magazine bolt guns with long eye releif scopes, many in 308.

72 A way to speed up background checks is to progulmate the no-sell NCIC list, updated twice a day or more often. Checks could be made locally by sellers themselves without logjams. This is how the NCIC stolen vehicle lists get designated widely to towing and parking companies ... if, protecting the privacy of those on the no-sell list ( why?, their actions to get listed took a public document of some sort) is an issue, then hash the list and distribute keys to trusted people, like FFLs or the NRA.

Pretty impressive design. I have one, and my next favorite is an H and K full-size. It comes close (for my hand at least) but Mr. Browning still wins.

What's amazing is that another great pistol design (Browning Hi-Power) is his also.

there are very good reasons to have Mil Twist 5.56 as an ammo choice....

95 Tobacco,

Gander Mountain in Cary had Independence brand 5.56 ammo there last week for 50 cents/round in 20rd boxes. I noticed it at the same time some other guy did and he swept the entire lot into his basket with his arm. GM has a 500 rd limit per customer and he had to put 100 RDS back on the table that I took. I gave my buddy 60 RDS since he needed some.

That other guy was about to get his ass kicked by the other customers there who came 10 seconds too late to the table.

Next gun on the chopping block will be the autoloading shotguns. Military uses some,so there's justification.

Next will be the bolt actions (snipers use these).

97 .243 goes for about $1.40 for a good 100 grain (white and axis deer, sheep ,goat, antelope, and all but the biggest hogs). Winchester white box and grey box is sometimes a bit cheaper. Say 90 cents prior to the shortage. The .243 comes in just about as many variations as one can imagine. The varmint rounds , 40-55 grain, 4000 fps are a lot more if you can find them. Maybe $1.60. Midway is a good source for exotic .243.

What we are seeing is some middling quality ammo coming in from Serbia, Russia, and Mexico and some really good stuff coming in from Germany, Italy and Sweden. Pouring in. Remington appears to have slowed down the quality lines and open up the bulk rounds. Federal is pushing American Eagle, its volume line. In both instances the rounds are made on the same machines as regular, but are not run through the rigorous inspection process, so there are rounds that would be culled from the hunting/match lines.But hell, I remember when Federal was a second brand. Now all Federal red box is better than Winchester white box.

147
We win.

For Immediate Release: 2/22/2013
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today won a significant victory for concealed carry when the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home.
The ruling came in Moore v. Madigan, a case filed by SAF. The December opinion that now stands was written by Judge Richard Posner, who gave the Illinois legislature 180 days to “craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment…on the carrying of guns in public.” That clock is ticking, noted SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb.
“Illinois lawmakers need to create some kind of licensing system or face the prospect of not having any regulations at all when Judge Posner’s deadline arrives,” Gottlieb said. “They need to act. They can no longer run and hide from this mandate.”
“We were delighted with Judge Posner’s ruling in December,” he continued, “and today’s decision by the entire circuit to allow his ruling to stand is a major victory, and not just for gun owners in Illinois. Judge Posner’s ruling affirmed that the right to keep and bear arms, itself, extends beyond the boundary of one’s front door.”
In December, Judge Posner wrote, “The right to ‘bear’ as distinct from the right to ‘keep’ arms is unlikely to refer to the home. To speak of ‘bearing’ arms within one’s home would at all times have been an awkward usage. A right to bear arms thus implies a right to carry a loaded gun outside the home.”
Judge Posner subsequently added, “To confine the right to be armed to the home is to divorce the Second Amendment from the right of self-defense described in Heller and McDonald.”

You have to go in one of these stores. Not like anything I've ever seen. There must be 100 yards (literally) of long gun racks down the walls. Two weeks ago bulk 45ACP in boxes of 500 stacked on a skid out in the aisle. You literally have to take a number to talk to a clerk about guns, mags, or optics. They have too many customers to manage the floor where the ammo is.

If they had 600rds that day Each guy taking a hundred to the table at their piss break would cover that time. Or they could change it to a 100 round limit. But the guy that got there first gets whats there. It may be a dick move if somebody's standing there at the same time but we all live with that everyday.

Every other place I've been to has ammo BEHIND the counter, away from customers. There's no shortage of shotgun or hunting rounds. It's all 223 and 22LR that's out.

Gander Mountain is now bundling their ammo with guns. They have several crates of 223 and 22LR with the purchase of an AR15 or one of those 22LR versions of the MP5. I suppose you could buy the gun to get the ammo, then turn right around and sell the gun back to their "used guns" section.

Posted by: EC at February 24, 2013 04:50 PM (doBIb)

160

From what I see and read, there is no conceivable way that the guns in this country could possibly be confiscated.

Way too many. Look at what just ONE individual did--talking about Dorner here--last week. Multiply him by several hundred thousand, just as a very conservative number.

Each situation doesn't have to end similarly, in fact it'd be best if they didn't. Still a nightmare for authority.

Posted by: irongrampa at February 24, 2013 04:50 PM (SAMxH)

161 Yeah I think BCochran has the right idea.
.
For people into reloading but worried about components, don't forget to check small local shops as well as big chains, they often carry small or even large amounts and don't tend to sell out as quickly (IME). On the other has big chains may get new orders more frequently.
.
For those in or near northern CA, Huntington's in Oroville seems to be the last to sell out. Probably because they're next door to RCBS, who make components as well as reloading presses and other tools. Definitely call first.

Seriously, on the ammo thing. This hoarding is definitely having an effect on the civilian inventory. Ammo last about 50 years so this build up has just about shit-canned regulation for a long long time. With regards to gun purchases, it is now well into the millions since November last. Ruger was 1million behind in orders in April of 2011. Sounds like a lot, but it is only about 10 guns per hardware store.

Posted by: pat at February 24, 2013 04:56 PM (L1Yma)

169 People will behave in extreme ways that we are not accustomed to during any sort of "panic".

Back in 70's when the average US driver had a quarter of a tank of gas in his/her car, all you had to do was announce a "gas shortage" and, voila. As soon as everyone filled up, then capped off every time they got to 3/4 of a tank, you had an instant gas shortage, even if there hadn't really been one. This is what we have come to with ammo.

Taken to it's logical conclusion. If there IS a real crisis, blood in the streets, and one guy on "our" side has all the ammo, with 10 others around him ready to shoot, but no ammo. What effing good is that?

May the Moron clawing begin.

Guns should be banned, along with oil, gas, and coal.

My favorite handgun of all I own is a cheapo commie surplus Polish Radom Tokarev. I also own an array of other surplus combloc sidearms: a Bulgarian Makarov, a P-64, a CZ-52. All great pistols but good concealable holsters have been very hard to find. I've found them, of course, but only after a great deal of searching. Seems to me a holster maker could carve out a decent niche in such pistols. The CZ-82, for example, is a huge seller according to a guy I deal with in the commie surplus handgun market. Insofar as I know, there are few holster options available.

194 I just bought my first shotgun at a gun show -- no paperwork or receipts, which is why I went there (with two VERY knowledgable gun owners and friends). My problem has been finding ammo, just for learning how to use it! I finally found some, but I was surprised. It's a 20g (12g has too much kick for where I am) and I thought that would be easier to find that 12g. Turns out I was wrong. I just stop off at different places and if they have some I buy it.

So I'm here to close out a dead thread (as usual) and we're still talking about ammo-buying ethics during panic shortages? No criticism of any involved, just sayin'.

And DAve, per your comment about scratch/find a socialist, you may notice on gun forums (CalGuns I just read the practical threads, so not sure, but on THR it's pretty amazing) how widespread are the twin evils of economic illiteracy and envy. It's a non-stop, depressing festival of "gouging!" and "how can they charge that?" and other adolescent-level grousing that unfortunately typifies the national condition. This sort of "thinking" is exactly what's eating away the country's substance - the combo of envy and illiteracy, empowered by lack of self-respect - are not limited to the "free s**t army". Oh no. It's a disease rampant in all segments of society.

The authoritarian instinct and practical stupidity of "why do you need a gun with a 15-round magazine?" are EXACTLY the same as those that lead to enviro-fascism and every bit of nanny-state liberty-destruction that have greatly degraded the society.

Happened to be on the road in CA/NV this past week, through many small towns and markets, and the wife tolerated me checking a few gun shops (for primers, actually just one kind, Federal small pistol). Not much to be found, even in these out-of-the-way shops. One place in Reno had Federal small pistol mag primers - $70/1,000. Uh, no thanks. I only need that particular kind for one load I do for one revolver (CCI/others sometimes fail to fire), and I still have 500.

Dunno about others, but the whole gun-grabbing frenzy is infuriating and alienating in a fundamental way, as it embodies all the elements of national degradation. Ignorance, authoritarian instincts, constitutional illiteracy, a staggering level of practical stupidity (nothing being done or proposed will have any possible effect on the already extremely rare mass killing). I have no desire - none - to share a country or civic culture with anyone exhibiting these incredible and repugnant characteristics. Yet they surround us. As I have begun to ask as a standard response, in what substantive, historically meaningful sense are these people Americans?

198 Remington oil is considered premier. There are a number of others that you can find at specialty dealers, especially on line, like Midway ammo. The 20G is the second most popular gauge and ammo should be on the floor at any large sporting goods store such as Sports Authority, Gander Mountain, Cabellas etc. #4 shot for home defense, 6 for pheasant/rabbit, 7 for quail/dove.

199 198 - Pat. Thanks for the info! The only gauges I can find are 2 and 6, and 4 is what I'd been recommended (2 3/4" slug) but cannot find anywhere. Felt lucky to find 6 at Walmart of all places, and 2 at Gander Mountain (which was PACKED). I figure I can use the 2 6 to practice at least, especially when I'm taking lessons, until I can find some source of 4. Is that a fair assumption?

Sticky Wicket, I think the thing with WD-40 is that is not really made to be either a cleaner or a lubricant. I believe the name stands for "water displacement, formula 40" (you'd think I'd know for sure - the stuff was invented about 1/2 mile from my junior high school). It's for displacing water/drying out machinery.

There are many, many, many excellent lubes, and cleaner/lubes, on the market, in many dispensers and forms. So while WD-40 may not appear to cause any problem (esp. if you're in a dry climate, and generally keep you guns clean), it is vastly inferior to products designed to clean/lubricate.

Taro Tsuji's random tips are all excellent. Use a good cleaner/lubricant (CLP or several similar ones), wipe down metal parts with a light oil, and/or wipe off all metal parts with one those silicon cloths after handling/before placing in safe/shoe-box/hidy hole/whatever.

Posted by: non-purist at February 24, 2013 06:07 PM (afQnV)

You want a good lube, try silicone spray. It's dry, slicks up an action just fine and has the added attraction of not picking up all kinds of dirt.

No problems with cold or heat, either.

205 Other than a 1911 my most frequent carry is a Browning Hi Power. It's hard to find leather hosters for it now but I have an old Bianchi #2 that will last as long as I do. You could probably sell copies of the #2 in both 1911 lengths, too.

Posted by: SurferDoc at February 24, 2013 06:11 PM (6H6FZ)

206 A note about "gauge" measurement in shotguns - unlike rifles and pistols, which use "caliber" measurement based on bore size (in fractions of an inch, like .45 ACP, or millimeters, like 9mm Luger), shotguns use "gauge." It's an archaic measurement based on how many lead balls of the shotgun's bore diameter would equal 1 pound of lead. So, a 12 gauge has a .729" bore, twelve lead balls of that size equaling one pound of lead. A 20 gauge has a .619" bore, a pound of lead yielding 20 balls of that caliber, etc.

I've never had a problem with it...on bluing, or moving parts. Lube lightly with a clean saturated cloth, and a wet swab down the barrel. WD-40 does tend to dry out quickly, and is not suitable for storing a weapon for more than about a month. But I've never experienced a problem with the compound on blued, or anodized surfaces.

Well #2 shot in 2 3/4 is a very deadly shot. So is BB. People like #4 because it does not travel, so you have less chance of killing an innocent. Doctors hate it because a body shot is almost impossible to treat. Too many deep holes.Perp almost always dies. You can pickup more shot numbers by moving up to a 3"BB. Slugs are a different story. Your gun likely has a choke, so you may need a sabot round, ie one encased in plastic to minimize deformation and pickup a spin. They also make specialty rounds that combine a slug with some buck. These are very popular in .410. There is a lot of good police buck coming out of Italy. And these come in 25 and 20 round boxes.

211 A number of years ago, my uncle sold me all his (old, but good) reloading equipment for rummage-sale prices. Then when the price of metal started going out of sight around 2000, I figured I would beat future price inflation and lay in a stock so I wouldn't have to buy in a few years at even higher prices. I got a couple of deals from the CMP on cases of .22 rimfire, and bought components on sale when I had the money.

For once, I did something right. I'm sitting in the catbird seat now. I'll never have to buy ammo again in my forseeable lifetime. 15K rounds of .22, and enough components/cases for .38 SPL, 9mm, .30-06 and 12 gauge that I can shoot as much as I want and never run out.

CCI was manufacturing 4 million roundsof .22LR a dayin its Idaho plant (2011 youtube video). Just one company. Trouble is, people buy that in bulk 500 or 1000 rounds in normal times. Now they buy more. .

Good for you, Neon Madman. I'm better off than some, but nowhere near your situation. Plenty for 9/38/45/30C for a while, but just started to build up for 30-06 (Garand) when the panic hit. Will get some more of that sweet HXP from the CMP, and keep my eyes open for dies, and I expect 4895 will become available again at some point. Besides, I haven't been shooting the M1 that much compared to the others.

Expect nothing to really happen on the federal level. On the state level, hoping for some dramatic court reversals for the idiots (sorry, can't use any other word, and yes, this includes probably half the country including people we know), similar to that just handed down by the 7th Circuit. But I really have very little faith in the judicial branch (this predates the absurd Obamacare debacle) - really there are no institutions left that are serious and responsible. Hope to be wrong, and there are at least a few more shoes to drop from Heller and McDonald, and especially that a basis is found to erase state efforts to limit inter-state commerce (i.e. ammo and component sales), or perhaps the tax/regulatory infringements on 2A rights will be dismantled in detail (believe basis for such already exists in case law).

Die Trying, vague memory tells me that the '09 panic had ammo in short supply (at least in shops) until at least late 2010. Select online sources had decent stocks and even decent prices before that. This time is worse, it would seem.

I believe a significant part of the '09 panic was general anxiety, not just (reasonable) reaction to the WH being occupied by a radical and fairly alien new president and the completion of the Dem Party's descent into insanity. The '08 financial crisis in particular was a factor. This time, we have the spectacle of irrational and unconstitutional anti-gun hysteria, on top of the (still jaw-dropping) re-election of a spectacularly failed, scandal-ridden, and ridiculous radical and alien president. I know that the last two national election cycles completely removed any sense of familiarity, confidence, or respect I have had for our country or its electorate (nearly 3 decades in the Beltway and "in the system" as my background). Anything is possible, law or common sense or tradition are irrelevant, it's just one big roving NPR-dumb mob lurching from disaster to disaster.

So I'd think this time it will be worse, and take longer, for retail ammo in popular calibers to return to anything like normal.

222 220 - in most states, you can order a cap-and-ball pistol and have it delivered right to your door. By the definition in federal law, it's not a firearm.

I believe the kits are still available as well, but all the supplies can usually be ordered from the same place that sells the guns. MidwayUSA, for one.

The powder is best sourced locally, as there tends to be extra hazmat shipping costs.

223 Speaking of cap and ball revolvers, they're a perfect illustration of the silliness of most gun law and gun lore.

According to the feds, they're not firearms. So, if we got all "real" guns off the streets, there would be no gun deaths.

And according to many gun enthusiasts (including a few here), shooting an attacker with a .38 will just annoy him.

Definitely design some holsters for women. Right now the Flashbang is the only one I can use that doesn't imprint. I'm only 5 ft. tall and my 1911 commander is too big and heavy to carry practically. I had to downsize to a Kahr CM9. I don't like shooting it as well but its light and I can actually carry it concealed comfortably.
I shot an AR today for the first time. Managed to hit a fist sized "exploding" target at 100 yards in 24 rounds. Came really close the rest using iron sights, no scope. LOVED it. It was heavy but no kick. MUCH easier to shoot than a shotgun despite what Biden claims.

230 Awkward Davies,
I know you can carry a lot in a purse but the ones that are out there designed for carrying concealed are fugly as hell. It would be easier to just design a holster that could be clipped somewhere inside of any purse securely. Maybe a holster that has several options to be clipped/ attached inside a purse. I still prefer a way to carry on person and so far the Flashbang is the only thing that works for me where I don't have to dress like a guy. Imprinting is a big issue for short women carrying concealed.

I own a Pietta reproduction 1861 Navy Colt .36 caliber cap-and-ball revolver, and it happens to be one of the best handling and most accurate handguns I own. I've conducted impromptu penetration tests with it using various loads, and consider it a very effective caliber.

I don't know of any knowledgeable gun experts who claim the .38 (or its Civil War-era .36 cap-and-ball equivalent) is ineffective. The argument many make is that 'bigger is better', and it usually is, frankly. Generally, the smaller the caliber, the more important placement becomes. The goal is immediate incapacitation of the threat. One is more likely to achieve this goal with a bigger bullet.

Wild Bill Hickok once shot a man (Dave Tut) in the heart at approximately 75 yards using his 1851 Colt. In an exhibition, Hickok also once used two revolvers, one in each hand, to shoot bulls-eyes in two Ace playing cards simultaneously, both tacked to fence posts right-and-left at 25 yards. Placement was never a problem with Wild Bill Hickok.

236 Ug. I missed the gun of the week for the first time. I thought it was the late WW2 German assault rifle (SG44 or whatever it was called).

237 @236, troyriser,

I have 2 m-44's and 2 -T-53's (Chinese M-44). I love the fireballs too. When I shoot those things (kabooom) at the range, them AR fellers always move away from me (or go home) and holler, what the heck is that thing? I felt the pressure wave in my chest! It made ripples in my cup of coffee.

238 So it still looks like the ‘assault weapon scam’ is still out there.
