    I've been seeing alot of videos and other info about these new Slide Fire stocks. Does anyone know if they are legal in California?

    Gimmick? No. It does work shot one plenty of times. Would I buy one? No. It's an easy way to waste money just like any full auto gun in my opinion. I would find something else to spend money on, shoot it once and you will then say been there done that now where is all my ammo.

    Is anything legal in Kommyfornia? It may be but what other asinine things would you have to put on or take off of your gun to make it so you could use it legaly? Is it considered a collapsible or fixed stock. Then what about going to the range and having to answer a litany of pointed questions every time you decide to "rock and roll".

    Unless you have pre-ban mags you will get real good at mag changes. Ten rounds goes fast.

    Even if it is legal, will you be taking a ride downtown if you get stopped for a traffic violation while it's in your car because the officer has never seen one? They say "You can beat the rap but you cant beat the ride". I would be willing to bet you'll take the ride.

    In your neck of the woods, I would say it's not worth pursuing.

    Seriously, not trying to dump on your idea. Just wondering if you have though it through.

    I was trying to do my part to keep this sub forum as neat and tidy as possible but to have comments like above floating around is a detriment and disservice to shooters.

    The slide fire is a gimmick. In no way does it mimic real full auto fire. That's all I'm going to say. There's a reason JonM combines all the slide fire threads into one heaping pile of stench. If you want to read more follow the supplied link.

    Its looks real fun, but its expensive, and will be expensive to feed, and will get old real fast. But please don't buy one in Cali, risking jail time and losing your gun rights is a cost too high to bear.

    With a little practice, you can do the same thing with a 50 cent rubber band. The slide fire takes less skill, but not 350 bucks worth. It is a bump fire device, and bump firing is illegal in Kaliphornia. Possession of a rubber band too close to your firearm will get you a trip to lockup, so this stock will get you there faster. Glad I live in KY, where I can stay prepared for the lesbian zombie apocolypse.

    Bump firing is not illegal in CA, a device that can simulate multi shot burst are.

    With some practice, one can learn to pull the trigger fast as heck...
    I credit having played video games since the 1970's for my fast target-aquisition and firing skillls ;)

    If you have a Wii, go get Link's Crossbow Trainer...within a few weeks of daily play you'll be smokin' fast!!
    If you think Video games are just for kids...think again...

    Or if you just can't get into the game thing...watch vids of Jerry Miculek over & over & over again...
    and practice (dry-fire with snap caps) while you watch...it will help.

    And the next-to-last helper...get a Calico pistol or carbine...100-rds per mag of 9mm or .22lr or .40 S&W fun!!

    Finally...there is THIS!! Guaranteed to bring your finger strength/flexibility/speed UP!!
    Which you need to be faster than average...yeah, finger exercises...you DO wanna be as fast as Jerry M., right?

    That is what bumpfiring is by BATFEC definition, the key word being "simulate"; however Cali is in their own little world. Depending on who is interpeting as to whether you get a bad photo downtown. All the slidefire does is make bumpfiring so easy a quadrapalegic kid with downs syndrome could do it. I saw a news video a while back of cali cops arresting one dude for using a rubber band to bumpfire. I suppose if you had enough skill to do it every time without the rubber band, you might be able to get by without being arrested, but I wouldn't recommend it. Cop having a bad day might plant a rubber band on you, then your goose is cooked.

    You specifically said Bumpfiring is illegal, which is wrong. You don't need anything to bumpfire besides your finger.


    I lived in CA, I've dealt with the insanity.
