This is a petition to reopen the registry.

This is a blog article about my trip to Knob Creek last weekend, with a video of the machine gun shoot.

I believe the registration requirement is unconstitutional, but the closed registry is especially onerous. Let's get it reopened so you can buy machine guns at reasonable prices again, and more people can afford them.

I'm still hoping Santa Claus might put one under the tree for me.
It's a great weapon of choice when the SHTF era is upon us.
Knob Creek in Kentucky I also wanted to visit one day.

I hate to be the devil's advocate, but if the registry were to be reopened, what is to prevent fabricators from rewelding machinegun kits and claiming they were "closet hidden" war relics? There would be a rash of remanufactured machineguns posing as curios & relics. Sure it would drive prices down, which is a good thing for most people, but it would be difficult to separate pre-1968, transferable 1969-1986 and post 1986 guns into categories they are currently being papered differently as. This issue may be an additional reason why BATFE will not issue an amnesty. They would be flooded with many guns claiming to be vet bringbacks or closet hidden weapons for decades past.

What do you guys think?

I think, if they started a mercy period, they would ignore the when... isn't that a point of "mercy"?

Its still buyer beware in the nfa game. No different than buying semi auros or bolt and revoler guns. Buy from an individual is no less risky. Just have to find a reputable dealer or do the leg work yourself.

Lots of rewelded m1d garands with repro chines m84 scopes floating around getting sold at collector prices.

Fraud tends to start when something gets pricey not when price goes down. There is a LOT of fraud in the nfa world more than you think.

My 2 cents...

The Anti's are hitting us on a broad front, we need to strike back in kind.
Every form of gun control needs to be pushed back. Outside of convicted
felons everyone should be able to purchase to their hearts content.

Well, it hasn't been a full year yet, but what the hell, we're only a few months off. SOMEONE GIVE THIS THREAD A BIRTHDAY CAKE.

Ya, I got all excited when I got this one updated in my subscribed tread.
Anybody heard anything new in the last year?

The only thing for me is: I met this really old dude who has an amazing collection of full auto's that start from pre WW1- WW2. He even let me shoot anything I wanted to.
He told me how mad he got when he paid $40 for a grease gun. All I could say was I just shot more than $40 in ammo. He just laughed & said, all the ammo has been paid for for years & not to worry about it. He showed me the ammo, all ww2 stuff.
I know this has nothing to do with full auto & 2a. Bur Can you imagine the home defense rifles & pistols that could have been manufactured since 1986? I would be willing to bet the Moss 500 would probably be replaced with a full auto Benelli for HD now.

Wow inflation is a bitch, a full auto benelli, that would be great.
