Ron,

We seriously appreciate your wisdom and experiences.
There is no substitute for this - no matter how much we read or hear. Being there and doing that is what makes us wise, and you have been there and done that!
One (of the few!) things I learned early on is to seek out the wisest guy in the shop and learn from him.

Thanks again for sharing!

Watch out for those unregistered parts kits.


BATFE raided a home near here. Guy died, had over 10 LEGAL C&R MG's. One of his son's tried to sell one at the local gunstore. Form 4's were in order, but gun store calls ATF. ALL mg's confiscated and melted!

What part about following the Arms Export Control Act doesn't anyone understand???? The law has been around since 1961 and it is enforced regularly. I really do not think that it adds to this forum to pillory the person that reminds all of us that we need to follow the law.

Or, are we running an "arms bazar" that needs to be shutdown because we are a "loophole?" Someone please clarify this for me. I am totally confused now. Is this and other websites now flaunting the law and enticing others to willfully and knowlingly violate? Or are we running a responsible website?

Hardrede, when did this incident take place, with the son trying to sell the MG and the raid? Also, I think that Ron is simply warning people that there are 'unregistered parts kits' out there. He is not advocating that anyone, certainly no person from this site, purchase illegal parts kits. blink.gif smile.gif It is, and always has been, the responsibilty of the buyer to determine the legality of any purchase, for him/her (status-that is, persons on probation, parole, mentally deficient, and/or a convicted felon) and that such purchases be in accord with the laws or statutes for the U.S., his/her state, and local area, governing whatever is being purchased (machineguns, explosives, fireworks, ammunition, parts, etc). ohmy.gif Anyone who forgets this is foolish and certain to eventually be caught! cool.gif Regards, Walter

I would really like to know more about this! Give the city and date, as I'm sure it showed up in the local paper and news... Something seriously wrong here.....
