    Full Auto Owner's?

    Just wondering if there are many full auto owners on this forum?
    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw it.

    Government distortion of markets?

    Seems like plenty of poor jihadi's can obtain full-auto weapons, but in the US, they cost thousands and thousands.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Simple totalitarian supply and demand.

    Your both right, the prices of these collectibles has been steadily going up & up.
    Mainly due to supply and demand I'd say, I caught the bug about a decade ago and
    own several, I don't know if I could afford them now.
    Being a Thompson collector has been a joy, buying the myriad of accessories and meeting
    like minds. Everyone should own one:-)

    I was hooked at eighteen when the Navy gave me that first xme177.

    I have great affinity for the pps43. Everyone should own one.

    Disclaimer: I currently live in Washington State. Full Auto is banned here for Law Abiding Citizens. Dumb law. At one time we were "allowed" to own suppressors, but we could not deploy them. It takes time.

    When the previous governor of Maryland started talking about even more strict gun laws.
    I bit the bullet and decided to move to a neighboring state. I looked at VA and PA and decided
    they were close to the ragged edge with new gun laws on the horizon.

    I thankfully decided on West Virginia....not a month after I set everything in motion, our
    stellar Senator Munchkin co sponsored a gun bill in the Senate.:-(

    I'm truly relieved he's not seeking another term.

    I guess there's not many full auto owners that frequent this forum?
    It may just be for the suppressor / silencer owners, that's one item
    I haven't bought to date, I'll have to look into it.

    Most people buy gold or silver as a hedge to the market.
    I looked into that and saw that the metals market has to increase 20% before
    your investment breaks even.
    I did the right thing in hindsight, and bought collectible guns, which have been on a tear lately.

    Many choose not to advertise the possession of FA weapons. They are not yet "legal" in Wa State yet. Suppressors and AOWs are good though.

    Isn't there basically 100% transparency required by law in regards to full auto weapons? Seems pointless to hide the fact unless you're just a private type of individual.

    Not 100% transparent, but close enough for government work

    I mean the level of contact with the government and info one may be required to share/rights one may give up for the privilege to own full auto.

    The idea of owning full auto has always intrigued me, but the amount of regulation and government interaction has always turned me off. Same reasoning I employ when OCing in VA.

    If your referring to the array of approvals that's required, as in the local CLEO and the ATF NFA Branch, yes the government knows your the caretaker
    of these weapons. The multitude of background checks and fingerprinting is the norm in the process, yet it's worth it to own such history rich guns.

    The weird part of the process is that you have to go through the same process for every NFA item you purchase, after a while, you'd think they would get it
    that your an upstanding individual. The average turn around from payment to having the gun in your safe has been around 9 months in my case. Being from
    Maryland didn't help any I'm sure. The only way to shorten the process would be to get a SOT license. I'm a FFL-03 collector.

    I've only had ATF agents in my safe two times over the years, they were just doing their jobs :-) I'm normally checked out by the local PD when I bring them
    to a public range. I think they enjoy the experience of handling and firing them as much as I do.
