Condolences on the passing of your Dad, Chad. Truly a sad time for any son.
I have all my Dad's guns, although none of them are anything I shoot anymore. He's been gone since '87 so I've been thinking about thinning the herd.

Thanks, Rob-n-Lew. My father's arsenal contains a disproportionate amount of 20ga shotguns, so I'll likely part with some of those.

One of the folks over at the Colt Forum posted this so I just had to pass it on. I hope I'm never faced with such a dilemma.

Odd, the link still works at the Colt forum and other sites where I posted it. Maybe the word "guns" together with "Ural" triggered a security algorithm and disabled it. In today's world anything considered sensitive or non PC by a computer's programing is possible.
Oh well, I thought it was funny but then I'm not PC either. :D

The URL is incomplete, looks the same as it does on the page, shouldn't be a '...' in the middle

Looks like you copied and pasted what was displayed on the original page

Yup. You need to copy and paste the original URL from FB.

FB has several group pages dedicated to Colt firearms. I have to admit that I was surprised by that.

I was listening to some interviews with people standing outside of a gun shop in the land of Californication waiting to buy a firearm. Many of them were complaining about how long and difficult the process to get a firearm was. One guy said that he had tried to buy a full auto rifle online and have it delivered to his home and was surprised when the online dealer told him they couldn't do that. The interviewer said, "You know that the sale of a full auto rifle and having it delivered directly to your home are both illegal." and the guy responded, "Well that's not what I've been told." LMAO!

Free at last, free at last .... for now. We'll see how long it take California AG Becerra to seek a stay.

A big preliminary win for the California Rifle and Pistol Association in its fight against California’s ludicrous ammunition background check law, the case known as Rhode v. Becerra. US District Court Judge Roger Benitez — the same District Court judge who set off the week-long standard capacity magazine buying spree — has issued an injunction blocking enforcement of the law.

Benitez wrote:

Law-abiding citizens are imbued with the unalienable right to keep and bear firearms along with the ammunition to make their firearms work. That a majority today may wish it were otherwise, does not change the Constitutional right. It never has. California has tried its unprecedented experiment. The casualties suffered by law abiding citizens have been counted.

And finally . . .

Defendant Attorney General Xavier Becerra, and his officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and those persons in active concert or participation with him, and those duly sworn state peace officers and federal law enforcement officers who gain knowledge of this injunction order or know of the existence of this injunction order, are enjoined from implementing or enforcing the ammunition sales background check provisions found in California Penal Code §§ 30370(a) through (d) and 30352, and the ammunition anti-importation provisions found in §§ 30312(a) and (b), and 30314(a) as well as the criminal enforcement of California Penal Code §§ 30365, 30312(d) and 30314(c)

This also restores Californian's right to purchase ammunition, and 'import' it, from out of state. Under this statute it was illegal to bring ammunition into California from any other state; it still must be shipped to a local FFL (and a handling fee paid to the dealer).

Gotta love Judge Benitez. Hopefully this will last longer than magazine freedom week. If I lived there, I’d be buying ammo like crazy right now. Too bad there’s a nationwide shortage and the price has gone up.
