-Hicaps for everything I have
And maybe a few items as an investment to resell later?
mags, ammo, reloading setup
Seems like ammo is the latest thing they're trying to go after.
AK47 underfolder or sidefolder
Lots of 30rd mags for said AK
As much ammo as you can possibly afford
Work on keeping a ban from happening and spend less time worrying about legislation that isn't even written yet.
I doubt they're going to be banning ammo. There's no way anything like that would every remotely even be considered. I'd say they'd probably push for something like what they did last time.
That said, i've already started to acquire what I think could be banned. I've got my AK and over 4 dozen mags for it, so that's good. Thinking of a 74, just got an AR this weekend.
Probably get anything that was banned last time, and you'd be good. Mags do the best when trying to resell for an "investment".
They might not ban ammo, but they could tax the shit out of it, or put insane requirements on ammo makers, like serial numbers.
Maybe a dumb question, but are factory mags considered hi-cap? The CZ 75 SP01 has 18 rd mags. That's the only one they come with. They can easily fit the other CZ 75 family ones, but don't come with them.
I just started getting into guns more so I don't know all of what the last ban covered.
No handgun magazine could be over 10 rounds with the previous ban.
Hi-cap mags and lots of them
Thanks for the info. I think with the tax return check I'll pick up2 or 3 more mag's and I plan to get a Mesa Tactical low-tube stock kit for my FN shotgun.
The mechanics of any future ban are likely to be different than the 1994 AWB. All proposals that I've read will grandfather everything that's presently legal, ban by feature instead of model number (like CA, MA, and other states), and prohibit the transfer of any "assault weapon" or high-capacity magazine. Certain other things are likely to be banned, like box magazine-fed semi-auto shotguns, rifles with pistol grips, barrel shrouds (that nutty gun-grabber Rep McCarthy from NY didn't know what one was and banned them by name in that silly bill that's wasting away in committee).
As far as I know, any "detachable ammunition feeding device" with a capacity of >10 rds will be banned. It's retarded since plenty of handguns and rifles were designed from day zero to have normal capacities of >10rds and mag changes can be accomplished in less than a second with practice, but 10rds is the number I've been seeing in every new proposal thus far.
Of course, one can always hope for the best possible outcome in Heller vs DC...
Hell, I bought one of those absurd 33rd Glock 18 magazines the other day mostly because of the many AWB-renewal type proposals on the books.
I'd like to look into an AK.... what's the price to build?
god i can't imagine the run on high capacity magazines if there is a ban in place
would a ban just set limitations on purchases after it goes into affect, or would they take the guns we already have :X
Thanks for the inquiry, sadly at this time we cannot predict the future. When we here at SoyCo Industries are able to do so, we'll email you.
You sir, hit the nail on the head. Work now to help solve the problem before it happens. Perhaps I should be worried, but I am really not. If a ban was announced, I would spend a week or so doing a massive build up of the things I want.
Nothing that has been proposed outlaws possession of banned items, just manufacture, sale, and transfer to varying degrees.
Stock up on AR lowers and AK receiver flats FTW? Or FTL?
Not like I have that kind of money.
Where's the fun in that
I'm gonna load up on mags and ammo.
Probably picking up 2 extra lowers, maybe an AK, nothing else I can think of.
Were supressors covered under the last AWB? If so then add one of those to the list in .223 and 9mm, but I doubt I can afford that by the time it would be here
