    Legal hair splitting are just the way our laws are written. If you wish to challenge a law, you better be prepared to deal with the legal hair splitting.

    A gimmick toy for your AR is worth the effort and expense to go through the legal battle and challenge the law?

    I’d love to have your free time and disposable income.

    I’m not the one wanting a binary trigger.

    Trust me, neither am I. I’m all for slow, controlled, precise shots, not spray-and-pray tacticool accessories.

    By the very definition a binary trigger is not illegal …….. the definition is A person who sells or offers for sale a manual or power-driven trigger activating device
    constructed and designed so that when attached to a firearm increases the rate of fire of the
    firearm is guilty of an aggravated misdemeanor.

    Read carefully …..this is not ATTACHED as are trigger cranks …it is a part OF the firearm not a attachment

    So is not the receiver considered “the firearm” everything else ATTACHES to the receiver. A business does not need a FFL to sell gun stocks or barrels or pistol grips or magazines tubes, magazine caps, etc., ALL of which are ATTACHED to the firearm.

    How does one keep a binary trigger in position if it is not attached to the receiver?

    Confirmation bias interpretation. When you want something to read a certain way, you can twist words to make it so. In this case, “it’s not ATTACHED”. That kind of legal hair splitting never ends up the way you want it to.

    For those that say no one is coming after anyone’s guns, the conversation on Meet the Press this morning literally referenced the fact that the only difference between the US and other countries and how we supposedly are the only country with gun violence is the 2nd Ammendment and that maybe we should look at changing that so we are more like other countries.

    I spend a good chunk of time daily keeping up with the news, and I agree with what you’re saying mhock. The masses are pissed off and place total blame on the ‘evil AR Devil guns’, and the masses are growing and growing. The hypocrisy is, it’s going to take the use of guns, among other weapons, to try and confiscate our guns from us. I’m not sure how I see that one playing out in the MSM, but it’s not going to go well, that’s for certain.

    Part of me thinks one of of the big reasons it’s popular to blame the gun is, then we don’t have to admit we might be part of the problem. It’s the OBJECT’S fault, not society’s.

    If they will be using the logging road for access, they will have to improve it to get their equipment in – trucks, small cranes, etc.

    Any damage to your property, you will be compensated for. Any additional easement needed, they will buy. You do not necessarily need a lawyer, but read everything they give you – and it may not hurt to have a lawyer review it before signing. Bring all of your requests/demands to the table at the start, and there’s nothing wrong with a little bartering.. say, “I’ll allow an extra 10′ of access, if you put rock down on the road”

    Keep in mind. You’re dealing with a large company with deep pockets, and the power of eminent domain. You catch more flies with honey and all that. Work with them, and they’ll be more willing to work with you. Be a giant pain and fight them every turn, and they’ll give you exactly what they have to, and not a bit more.

    Is it even the DNR’s job to go after illegal dumpers? I would think some other dept. would be in charge of that, but I could very well be wrong.

    DNR does more than wildlife and parks – they oversee all waste disposal (landfills, etc.) in the state as well. So yes, illegal dumping is 100% in their ballpark.

    I would not live there if you are so scared of someone.

    Ah yes, a well-thought out, articulated response…

    I live in a sleepy little town. 97% of our crime is speeding tickets. A couple months ago, a guy from The Dirty drove over here and kicked the door in on a house. Ended up getting a couple extra holes put in his body.

    In my sleepy little town, I live in a fairly quiet part of town. Except the sweet little old lady across the street from me….her sons have some less than redeeming qualities about them. When one of them got thrown out by (and a restraining order from) his wife, he moved in with mom.

    Depending on the day, and time of day, a police response could be as much as 10 minutes away.

    Just because people choose to be prepared for the (very unlikely) case of some dirtbag inviting themselves into their home, does not mean they are scared of them. They just choose to be ready, and not have to cower by the phone hoping the cops get there in time.

    Ballpark, what kind of numbers? And maybe don’t answer that on here. (nothing like saying “Hey, I’ve got a whole bunch of guns in my house!”)

    Under a dozen, maybe look at selling direct to a dealer, or seeing if they’d sell on consignment for you. Couple dozen, maybe talk to your local auctioneers and they might put them on their next bill of sale and sell them that way. 50 or more, they might set up a special sale.

    Edit: If you can get hooked in with an auctioneer that does a lot of gun sales, they seem to do well. The last several gun auctions I’ve gone to here, used guns have sold for more than they’re worth new. I only go to look anymore, don’t even get a bid number.

    If you want any help with spam in the meantime I would volunteer, I usually get online at about 6:15 for a few minutes before starting work.

    As would I. Sometimes see it creeping in before I turn in for the night.

    If the minimum age to own a handgun is 21… Then I would guess you couldn’t sell one until you are 21.

    I had to walk a person through the 4473 the other day at Dick’s, after we were done, he had to call a manager over to “approve” everything ????

    That’s pretty standard at all of the big box stores — Scheels will do the same thing. Salesman will go through the form with you, but before they can finalize, they have to have a manager come and review it to make sure everything is filled out correctly and ID/permit matches, etc. And Scheels will carry the gun to the checkout – you can’t carry it up yourself.

    pop off a firearm in the hallway of your house once in dead calm with no ear protection. …then tell me whether you wished you had a can attached to your firearms or not. as mentioned above, the muzzle flash will zap your limited night vision as well. there’s some really good reasons to have a suppressed weapon.

    units like the silencerco hybrid aren’t cheap, but you can use them on 9mm, 45, 223, 300BO, up to 300WM, and i even had guys running them on their 450 bushmasters this year for deer. some cans are that versatile, not all. but they also cost money, so measure twice, cut once…

    Shortly after I got my M&P .40, I had the brilliant thought that if I’m going to use it for self defense, I should know what it sounds like. (y’all can see where this is going already, right?) I swear that I know better – and had already been dealing with near-constant tinnitus for a couple years at that point due to my uncle cracking off a round through a .44 mag before I put my muffs on.

    But somehow, my common sense completely failed me. Ten minute drive to my makeshift range. Another couple minutes getting stuff set up, and at no time did my brain say “Hey, this is a dumb idea”.

    RIGHT before the trigger broke, I thought “Hey, this is probab…” BANG!

    Yeah, I don’t need to ever do that again. I won’t even take my .22 out of the case without plugs in. Heck, anymore I won’t take my circular saw out of the case without plugs.

    And in a home defense situation, you have basically created a small flashbang. Loud noise, flash of light, and concussive force. All causing disorientation and confusion. Yeah, I’ll take a silenced weapon if I’m given the choice.

    (I keep hoping the Hearing Protection Act would make it through and I wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of setting up a trust and paying the tax)

    Define “affordable”.

    I would go with one of the entry-level Nikons – D3000 series or D5000 series. I started with a D60, which was the predecessor to the D3400. They’ll all have interchangable lenses that will allow you to expand if you like, and a decent set of features. I’ve since sold my D60 and upgraded to a D7000 (kind of on the line between consumer grade and professional)
