    Disturbing news in my home state.

    http://www.turnto10.com/story/21922295/chafee-top-ri-lawmakers-seek-assault-gun-ban

    I suppose I suspected it.. Blue as Blue states can be. RI has always seemed to had a more independent view of Firearms. While still quite overzealous in regulations and nonsense ...nothing compared to our neighbors to the north and now west. It seems that will change. They do seem to have the votes to pass this.. a sad day

    This is only one of the many reasons im in the process of getting out. This state has become a complete toilet overrun by illegals.

    The laws and regulations in Rhode island are a bit much to start with.
    I mean, come on, you can't buy any caliber larger than what you qualify with?
    How many new shooters can qualify with a 50 ae or a 45 for that matter?

    I believe you may be confused, you can buy any caliber you want. You just cant carry any caliber larger than what you qualify with. So if you qualify with 9mm, you cant carry .45acp.

    You're right. I was remembering a bit wrong. Still a stupid regulation in my opinion. I don't have an issue with the qualifying part, just the caliber limit. If you're going to have a regulation like that you should require the person carry the gun they qualify with. Just because you can keep your shots on target with a 9mm glock doesn't mean you can with a bodyguard. The limit essentially makes qualifying pointless.

    This is true. I can stay on target much better at 25 yards with my 9mm vs my .22, but then again it may be the gun. RI doesnt make it easy. I have shot at the Army "L" target at 25 yds, and its not easy. I still need some practice to get 195 out of 300 points.

    I have a hell of a time with the .22 myself. Lol
    Benched with a red dot I can keep a full mag inside a dime. Offhand I'm lucky to hit the X. Lol
    With my 10mm I can blow out the bullseye no problem. It is amazing how unforgiving the .22 is. I do a hell of a lot better with .22 WMR.
