My form 4 went pending on March 15. Ninety days later would have been June 15.

But what do I get in the mail yesterday ?!? ohmy.gif My finger print cards and a letter from the BATF.

Forgot to put my date of birth on the finger print cards. DOH!!!

Since the fingerprint cards are what usually take the longest, I guess I'll get to wait another 90 days! sad.gif

Oh well, I guess I'll dream about shooting it until then! sleep.gif

Z3,

I may get lucky and clear sooner, but I'm not holding my breath.

After all, they sent my fingerprint cards back 75 days into the waiting period.

We will see... dry.gif

How's that M11 ammo disolver working?

I have heard that if you shoot an M11 with the ejection port pointing straight up, you can fire a full magazine (30 rounds) before the first piece of brass hits the ground? Is it true (or an urban legend?)

Has anyone ever shot an M11/9 with a "MAC-JACK" in it?

It is a piece of hard plastic that stops the bolt short. Some M11/9s will shoot at 2100 rounds per minute with this in it! ohmy.gif

That's some quick shoot'en! wink.gif

Whatever were they thinking, when they designed M-11s?

Probably about the same thing the people who designed the sten were thinking, only square instead of round......

Maybe they were thinking...FUN!!! biggrin.gif

The M11 (.380) is a ton of fun to shoot.

It has very low upkeep; hell, I don't think you break it if you tried!
