    I'm not going to worry about Obummer's gun orders. If things get worse I going to buy mine from Eric Holder empourim of assault weapons. Its said he has close ties with someone and as long as you buy from FAST AND FURIOURS HOUSE OF WEAPONS there will be no questions asked even if you get caught. I think were safe here. Just thought I would let everyone no of this special outlet. Bill

    The catch is that the buyer has to take delivery in Tecate, Mexico, and register the gun there with one's passport, dob, and driver's license scanned and copied. But the price is right.

    Didn't the ex Marine try to legally take his gpaws bolt action shotgun into Mexico? 5 months in prison later and I'd wager his advice would differ from Davids?

    The real trick would be "smuggling" it back home after hiring one of the Mexican human traffickers to escort you safely to the homelands?? Great buys down there I hear!!

    Please all, I hope nobody took me seriously!!! I am sure Hap caught my ascerbic response of disgust re. some of our government's actions, lately, where firearms are concerned.

    Holder is just carrying on an old tradition. Old time sheriffs used to sell guns they took off of criminals. Sort of a side line bonus.

    If any of these radical changes pass, you're going to see Black Market gun sales that will rival prohibition days.

    We tried once to deny people of something and look what happened.

    Some police and sheriff departments take guns they recover and determine if they can be used by the department (which is very few) or as a display piece, or sell the guns to highest bidder within the department or agency.

    This usually happens in small to moderate departments, but the large departments either melt them down, or dump them in the ocean.


    Over 24 years ago, my home was broken into and about a dozen guns taken. Just a few months ago, I got a call from the PD where I was living at the time, asking me if any of my guns had been recovered and returned to me. I replied no, and the records person on the phone thanked me and said the guns would remain active record as stolen.

    You would think there would be a statue of limitations, but apparently not.

    Many of the local county Department are supposed to notify the State when any gun is taken. However most of the time this don't happen and the gun is back out on the street in a different city. Bill

    Years ago, a police detective, a good guy, knew him since high school, told me how he got an odd, but kinda junky .22 revolver. He worked in a suburb near here. One of the characters from the Joseph Wambaugh books came in and said he wanted to kill somebody, so he wanted to get rid of the gun he had. The true "crazy" person was the one who painted his car red now and then and just went out and acted insane. So my friend calmed him down, checked out the condtion of the gun and fired it "in the hole" dowstairs in the police lab, then bought the gun. It was a kinda of strange .22 single action revolver that fired an offbeat number of rounds, had either 5 or 7 holes in the cylinder. Anybody here know what kind/brand of gun that cheapy 22 might have been? And anybody else remember the part where Wambaugh described the guy who painted his car totally red on a chornic basis? (Coupla trivia questions here...)

    It became the gun his kids used for plinking. A couple of his sons today are police detectives...I guess his father, a very jovial good guy, had a positive experience as a detective in the suburbs.
