slap's are old rounds - our mil buds don't use em (different good stuff they use).  it was a common practice to booby trap such rounds over the years, especially rounds outside of the US. that one could have been a booby trap or a foreign counterfeit sneaking back in.  also the red plastic shroud can crack in the case damaging the round integrity.  The hardened "round" could improperly contact the barrel with disastrous results.  this looks more like a hand grenade going off.   the rifle he's using isn't particularly safe to be used with unknown loads.  more like a pipe bomb rifle, sealed breech.  if he's reloading or buying reputable manufactured rounds it's fine. glad he made it.

I know i would never be using rounds like that, risk is far to high.

Sort of expected that.  They are trying to pull a fast one, trying to get away with several years of fraud.

They are not your father's NRA and i blame Wayne.

Yup. Let it die, give your money to GOA or SAF (if you must; I'm too cheap to donate to anybody, but SAF does get roughly 17 cents from me a year through Amazon Smile!).

I stopped giving my money to NRA long ago. I had heard rumors long before anything had hit the fan.

I guess i should add:  Its not like i expected Wayne to go hungry or have to drive between presentations in a 1970 beetle. And sure, there are some perks to being the big guy of a large entity like that, but he took it WAY too far.

When the lurkers speak up here, I realize how far I am behind on The Sanitarium... 

I guess I have lurkers too. Ig, you need to add a "log-in" log.

I guess ATF has flip flopped gain on pistol braces.  Effectively banning them once the new rules come out.

 

 Unconstitutional *****

I think in the beginning, this was not the case.  But once Wayne got in there, yes, i agree.

Hmm so when they effectively ban braces again next month ( even if it was constitutional their 'rules' are a crock of poo.. Even tho its impossible to meet the requirements, at the beginning " we hold the right to not follow the rules and just make a judgement call on what we think your intent was" ) i guess if you have bought one later, or separately as you built it, you can remove and destroy it.  If you pistol came with it, you cant do that and either have to destroy the entire firearm or register it ( that illegal national registry crap again ) as a SBR.

 

Pisses me off to no end.

I've been looking at CZs on-and-off for several years now.  Surprisingly, none of the ranges around me have one for rent except for one, and it's a tricked out full-size race pistol.  I tried it, and it was alright, but not very representative of what I'm looking for.  I think that this is going to be one that I'll just have to buy to try.

Does anyone here happen to own a CZ 75 P-01?  Could I possibly trouble you to get a ruler and measure the width of the frame for me?  Like maybe across the top of the dust cover with the slide removed?  This is a surprisingly difficult dimension to find.  Most references I've found including CZ's website have the width somewhere around 1.4", and I suspect they're including the grips or the controls at their extremes, which makes that metric not very helpful since those things wouldn't be included in what's shoved down my pants.

If no one around here has one, what about calling a shop that sells them? I'm sure they would measure it for you.

State dept enacted what is in effect a permanent ban on Russian ammo and firearms. ( its not technically, but the requirements for lifting the ban are not obtainable, so in effect, permanent ) Seems that makes up nearly 40% of the ammo supply for citizens.  ( didnt realize it was so high actually )

Bastards.

I worried that they would eventually figure this out.  You don't have to ban guns, just make it prohibitively expensive to shoot them.  Of course, the gang-bangers won't mind; a drive-by doesn't take that much ammo, and it's just the cost of doing business.  But they were never the real target, were they?
