okee dokee. Just got a reply from the FBI; pre-arrival check are discouraged, as all entries
into the NICS system must be accompanied with a 4473.That's a bit disappointing. Seems now I
might have to ...

I live way, way out in the country, and as such the customer based is limited. Heck I've sold
only 28 guns so far, and I've had my FFL for a good 9 months.Everything has been very orthodox,
with a few...

I recently won an auction for a little Iver Johnson/US revolver co. .32 break open. I love the
hardware store cheapies of the 1880-1915 period. They're so under appreciated in terms of

I have never owned, nor seen, a Jimenez in person. But I have fired about 5 autos in my life; a
S&W MP, a Beretta 92F and Cobra\Kodiak Denalhi are the only ones that come to mind and here's

products, from 333 cologne to the Argat computer. So far I have 2 Mosins, an IZH-27, and the
