Definitely staying until i see flames down in the canyon. The last few years turned out to be mandatory evac. I stayed home. Monitored the situation and kept my home safe. Just getting ready in case i do have to bail..

There were 1 or 2 incidents of looters last year in my area..

Just acquired this fun maker last week.    Deal was just too good to pass up considering current pricing.   

I already have a brace solution ordered and inbound.    Probably will make is a side folder while I am at it.

Zastava ZPAP M85  it currently has a CNC 4 piece brake on it.. IMO looks kinda silly.

Sounds like the ATF is about to make SBR the better option...

Do tell, do tell. I've been wanting some SBR's but I don't want to deal with all of the tax stamp stuff.

One of my buddies was flying-off-the-handle via text while I was at work tonight...

I think this is what he was on about:

 

Which makes sense, since I know how much he payed for his Honeybadger...:ph34r::rofl:

 

>edit< oh and nice gat @Stampeed Valkyrie!

Q is offering to pay people's tax stamps to SBR the Honey Badger pistol at this time.  ATF has stopped responding to Q.  I think ATF just turned their phones off since this all started.  I've gotten no response in trying to get my suppressor back from AAC.  I sent it in for repair back in July.  No answer at AAC since they shut down and were bought out.  I left a message with ATF and no response.  I'm tempted to just drive to Alabama and knock and demand my suppressor back.  I'll get it fixed elsewhere.

That's pretty swell of Q actually...

and understandable on the part of the ATF, lol!

 

Thanks for the follow-up video @Stampeed Valkyrie ... interesting info.

 

Before the whole AR ban, Canada's gun-laws (paradoxically) made more sense on this issue.

TLDR: if you had a license for pistols [Restricted License], AR-pistols [any SBR really] counted as such, and you could then do whatever you want to it: stock, foregrips, didn't matter, as long as you followed the rules for pistols [restrictions on movement and storage].

I looked at a bunch of the Springfields. Let us know how it shoots.  I’m actually trying to find the .308 version in stock somewhere.  I had parts laying around so I built a 7.5” 5.56 pistol and hated it. 
 

 

so I turned it into a suppressed short barrel rifle (all legal. Plenty of stamps here)

You can't just make an account at ATF and file an eform 1?  Takes less than a month for approval.  I thought Delaware was okay with SBRs.

I'm still using a trust from the old days but I think individual applications are going faster (only one background check to do).

Making your own is easier and quicker than trying to buy one and waiting the longer wait.

I believe local law enforcement has to sign off on it. I think that’s the part that’s not a given. The stamps are kinda ridiculous in price to as well right?

That was one of the reasons I went with a trust but they passed a new ruling awhile ago. No need to have a cleo sign off. You just mail them a copy of your application. If you pass the atf background check they approve your stamp. Stamps for sbrs and suppressors are $200 each.  So yeah it gets expensive. I’m waiting on stamp #20 now. 
Yeah. I’m a sucker. Lol

I'm expecting it to be pretty horrible to shoot. The last AR pistol I shot kinda sucked. I got it as a tool to be used only in dire situations that I can transport a lot easier than a full carbine. And being pistol legal makes transpiration easier too. I just ordered irons for it. As soon as those come in I'll go dial everything in, clean it up real good and probably never shoot it again............ Hopefully.

I've been resisting getting a trust. If I open that can of worms I may get myself in trouble. Suppress all the things!!!:rofl:

Why didn't you like the 5.56 pistol you built? Running problems? Lots of flames in your face? Etc? From what I understand getting the balance right so that they run correctly is a little tricky. I don't have the time or desire to mess with running issues so I went with this one. Everything I have seen on it says it runs like a Swiss watch.

Hmmm interesting. Maybe look into building that extra lower I have into one.

It was too short for me. I kept worrying about my hand sliding forward.  I didn’t sight it in since I was waiting in my suppressor mount. I only shot 10 rounds through it to make sure it worked. It worked fine.  I built a 6” 300blk pistol but had a 9” rail on it so it felt better. 
 

holding the 7.5” sbr now feels good with the suppressor on it.   
 

i used the maryland trust that’s been in the internet forever and just changed the info to mine. Atf has accepted it for every submission so far. 
 

i can email you two a copy if needed.

Hi! My CC permit arrived today. Anyone have any thoughts on insurance? 

??   There are some groups out there like USCCA that have some good information and offer services.

https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/

 

Your best bet for insurance,  is to learn your local laws,  take some classes,  there are several that deal with CCW and get proficient with your handgun.

Welcome to the modern world: where you need Insurance for when you had to use you insurance!:rofl:

Jokes aside, it's not funny when one gets sued by the baddie's family after the fact... everyone I know in the USA who carries uses USCCA... granted that's like 8 people, but it's 100% of my sample-size, so TIFWIW.

The amount that local ordinances can vary on this subject is bonkers...

I just jumped on their site. And as is the norm nowadays, It's all flash and you can't find any real information. They're built like casinos.:D Seriously, my web designer told me all about the trend and offered it to me when she started to lay out my sites (I didn't take the option).

Anyhoo, do they actually offer liability insurance or are they just pointing you toward someone who does? I'm guessing at most they're underwriters.

Gotta say. My AR pistol shoots really well. It was the ugly step child for a while, sitting next to my lovely Daniel Defense AR's. But last time we were shooting, i adopted it all day and really grew to love it. Iron sights only.

What do you pay for this liability coverage and what is the overall protection? Thanks!
