Grief fills the room up of my absent child,
Lies in bed, walks up and down with me,
Puts on his pretty looks, repeats his words,
Remebers me of all his gracious parts,
Stuffs out his vacant garments with his form;
Then have I reason to be found of grief,
Fare you well: had you such a loss as I,
I could give better comfort than you do,
I will not keep this form upon my head,
When there is such disorder in my wit,
O Lord! my boy, my Arthur, my fair son!
My life, my joy, my food, my all the world!
My widow-comfort, and my sorrows' cure!

Shakespeare,
King John ,Act 3

Could a police department buy this before it gets cut? I know I've heard the museums can take possession.

Why is he rushing to get it chopped???

Ask him what he thinks he could get for the parts then tell him he could probably get 2 times as much if he sold it to a museum or something.

I may know of one that would be interested if it is indeed possible to still sell it to one.

Truly a damn shame! Couldn't it be transfered to a Museum on a Form 10? Perphas a tax deductable contribution?

How does one qualify as a museum? I've been told I could start one.

How come I get the feeling if it was not cut right someone here would be up for turning them into the authorities? When will people learn this is not the forum to discuss such things? jmho fwiw

It might have been my statement, which I deleted. I merely expressed the sentiment that anyone who would cut such a weapon should go to prison, although slightly more colorfully. It was more a statement refering to the stupid Federal laws concerning these weapons. mad.gif blink.gif This is an emotional issue for a lot of us, when we continue to hear about more of these beauties being cut up for parts! I never mentioned anyone by name, nor was my statement directed at any particular individual. So, I think that some individuals should not jump to conclusions, rashly. unsure.gif smile.gif Regards, Walter

P.S. I certainly never intended to flame anyone, if that was how it was interpreted.

Hardrede, I'm glad it wasn't me! biggrin.gif I know there are sensitive people out there, and I did miss his "pipe down" statement. I didn't think my comment (more of a joke, really) was that outrageous. blink.gif smile.gif Regards, Walter

P.S. I guess everyone can learn something about jumping to conclusions, sometimes. blink.gif
