I see a lot of writing and very little pictures. Is this thread for picture posting or to discussing political ideas and views on guns? I respects everyone's rights and opinions but please this is just a thread to share, same as we do with car pics after getting wheels, springs... this isn't a bill we need to veto.

With that said I don't know if I could call my self an enthusiast but same as with my cars, I like them, I like to modify them and take'm for a good drive, that's about it. Since I'm reading about the "need for an AR" I guess i'll add my .02 cents. I don't have the need for it but I think like many, I did own one because they're pretty damn nice to shoot, nice to modify with optics and other accessories. After a while I realized the lack of use for it besides just dumping money onto it. If shot more than twice cant recall what I do remember is get anal about cleaning it to perfection, so I got rid of it.

End of my story.

I don't know when it will happen, but I have little doubt Germany will restrict firearms even further. Just like the USA, all you need to do is watch the actions of their leader after a few people are killed by some psycho with a gun. Funny how it's never the knife's fault, never the hammer's fault, never the baseball bat's fault.

I love a political gun chat as much as the next guy, but I would like to see some pic in the mix for sure!

Serious stuff, never got around to suppressing mine but looked into it quite a bit. I'm sure it would have made it a little easier to shoot around in my backyard back then.

I know it's just more text, but I feel this is important. For those of you who carry a Glock or S&W M&P and are sometimes forced to leave the firearm in that little drawer below the drivers seat I highly recommend getting the Vangaurd 2. My firearm does not fit in that little drawer in its holster and I do not want to hear of anyone here having a negligent discharge causing them to have a 4 finger Mickey Mouse hand, or worse.

I need to convince my wife she doesn't really like her Kahr MK9, fits snugly under the dash.

I believe we should begin another thread, but I'm definitely on the fence about civilians owning firearms "such as" an AR/AK/Mini14/insert-it-here class firearm. I make no bones about or apologizes for my opinion. I'm also a realist, and short of some literal gun grab, the cat is out of the bag on this.

Where I lack full conviction is.... today semi-auto detachable magazine guns, tomorrow my 30-30? Where does/would it end?

Lol.... I'm not going to tell you what to do, but I'll tell you what to do. :rolleyes:

Having lived in Germany for 6 years and having half of my family in Baveria, I am bewildered by some of their logic when it come to Guns. Although some believe that they shouldn't be as illegal or regulated as much as they are. You would think given their history that they would want more private ownership of guns.

Yes, I have an AR and I need it. ;)

Just remember that your Glock was once the evil gun that should not be allowed. Gun control didn't start off as banning rifles, it was handguns. Be carful what you wish for, because one day it will be evil black rifles, tomorrow it will be your Glock, the next it will be your beloved Marlin 995.

I'll stop with the politics for now, but I have studied this extensively and have found no correlation between violent crime and gun control across the world. Whatever the laws and politics I do wish everyone in the world the most peaceful and prosperous life.

Very nice! What can and caliber are you running on that AR? I plan to build a suppressed SBR AR this year and would like to find a combo that works well.
Im a caliber specific believer, but Im also an NFA addict every firearm I own is either a SBR, SBS or suppressed, so on that particular AR I have an AAC 762-SD because its a 300 blackout.

Anything from AAC or silencerCo is going to be good. I really like the AAC SD, I have another one of their 308 cans which is like an inch longer and its not a quite as the SD.

If you can only go with one I would go with a 30 caliber so you can shoot a 556, but also use it on a Remington 700 or a future AR10 or 300 black.

Really anything on the market is going to be a good can assuming you are not going into war with it. Just get what you like, your going to wait about 6 months for it so better enjoy it

IMO you should consider a trigger guard on that. Even a simple pocket holster would work. God forbid you need it you will be all kinds of worked up, it would be very easy to grab it wrong and put you finger on the trigger while you are deploying the weapon. If you every pull a pistol in a car most of the time the muzzle ends up crossing you leg, hand, body or something that can ricochet or shatter. I would think it would be best to have that trigger covered until the muzzle is in a safer direction then deploy the weapon, but thats just one mans opinion.

Valid points... negated by the fact that it unfortunately doesn't fit in there with the mags I have. I've got pocket holsters for both that and my J frame.

The make these little kydex trigger covers that only covers the trigger area. I have been wanting on for pocket carry, just have not picked one up yet. I tried to make one out of a piece of kydex I had, what a S*&t show that was!

Interesting. I'll have to look into this. I'm a bit disappointed the GSW doesn't have under seat storage, great place to discreetly store a pocket holstered piece. My A3 had one and it was perfect for the .38.

Yup here it is..... house bill 4296.

“(D) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any 1 of the following:

“(i) A threaded barrel.

“(ii) A second pistol grip.

“(iii) A barrel shroud.

“(iv) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.

“(v) A semiautomatic version of an automatic firearm.

“(E) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/4269/text

Glock 18 is an full auto and the glock 17 & 19 are version of that pistol...So your G19 and G17 could easily be illegal.

So its never enough, it never going to be one single type of gun.
