I have a local guy wanting to sell me his socom 16 with 4 mags for $1100. It's a rifle I really want to add to my collection, and I think it's a very fair price as it has less than 200 rounds through it, problem is I have a strict budget of $1000. What would you do?
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. -Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book"
