If the guy couldn’t pass bills and laws in 50 years I’m not confident he can even pass stool on his own at this point

After spending thousands of dollars on your AR 15, can afford a worthy scope?

I've never had a higher end one, but I've had some decent ones. I shot a .50 cal one a couple times at a demo. I don't know much about them but I know I've heard people talking about using them for bigger game. Do they have their own on-board power, or a separate tank?

I'm sure we had a Red Ryder around when I was little, but I don't think they're for much other than knocking over soda cans. When I was a little older we had a multi-pump Crosman .177 that was fast and accurate. That thing had enough power to take down large raccoons that would harass our animals. I think it was 13 pumps (I think the manual called for 11 or 12 at the top of their FPS chart) and it didn't have any problem making headshots through raccoon skull inside of 10-15 yards.

That one's long gone and the only thing I have now is a Crosman 1377 pistol .177 caliber. It's another multi-pump deal. It's compact and accurate enough that it would make a decent pack gun. I've probably nailed dozens of squirrels with it.

I don't know Texan or Hatsan, but I've wanted a small Gamo for a long time even though I don't have any personal experience with them. That's a good point about a potential rush and how things are going. Now that I'm thinking about them again, I think I might get one this week. They're not too expensive, ammo is dirt cheap (could probably make your own in a pinch), and it could scratch the shooting itch for cheap and also put protein on the table.

I have benjamin and gamo. The Gamos are great at killing small game and varmint and they're quiet. Woodchucks are pushing it for what I would shoot even with a .22 airgun, but they can get the job done.
I sent them a comment but it's going to happen regardless of what the we say. Some of the braces are right up to the line of being a stock. It doesn't make it any less retarded though that atf will be the ones who decide whether you intentionally in your mind built it as a rifle or a pistol. Just goes to show how stupid it is to outlaw SBRs in the first place when the line is that thin and unclear.

Anyone here air rifle? I have a couple of very good adult grade pellet rifles in .177 and 22. I'm talking 357, 45, 50 cal. Big game worthy air rifles. I'm looking a a Texan, Gamo, and Hatsan PCP for a compliment to ceter fire, and maybe getting in before the rush if things go bad in coming years.
Any experience or recommendations?
They *have* to put this blurb in there

The contents of this document do not have the force and effect of law and are not
meant to bind the public in any way. This document is intended only to provide clarity to
the public regarding existing requirements under the law or Department policies. This
guidance does not alter in any way the Department’s authority to enforce federal law and
is not intended to, does not, and may not be relied upon to create any rights, substantive
or procedural, enforceable at law by any party in any matter civil or criminal.

It's the result of Trump's 2019 EO Executive Order on Promoting the Rule of Law Through Improved Agency Guidance Documents

Section 4:"each agency shall, consistent with applicable law, finalize regulations, or amend existing regulations as necessary, to set forth processes and procedures for issuing guidance documents.  The process set forth in each regulation shall be consistent with this order and shall include:  a requirement that each guidance document clearly state that it does not bind the public, except as authorized by law"

It doesn't matter though. BATFE position is that this isn't rule making or a change to any law. It's guidance on how they will interpret and enforce the existing law. They will interpret some firearms that have pistol braces to be SBR instead of pistols.

Which ones they call SBR is based on arbitrary, subjective, unspecified caliber, weight, length, length of pull, attachment method, which brace, sights and scopes, and other accessories. Basically, if they want to they'll call it an SBR and throw you in the pen. Good luck.

I carry a S&W M&P Shield 9 off body in my Maxpedition - a fat boy Versipak without the cell phone holder. The holster is Massaro so I have the option to carry it on me but that isn’t physically possible for me right now.

I have a couple of reloads in the Maxpedition as well as pepper spray and a stun gun.
