    Saturday morning the line to get in extended the length of the building, turned and went all the way to Mechanicsville Trpk

    NRA signed up 249 members on Sat. and the VCDL table was doing a brisk business.

    By 11:30 AM Sat. Georgia Arms was sold out of cans of .45ACP and 9mm ball ammo. Sunday morning, their tables looked bare and the two salespersons were kicked back relaxing.

    My mid-length AR pieces did not make the UPS truck so I'll have to wait a week or so more.

    What every body thought was an ND turned out to be a blown pneumatic tire on a dolly loaded with somebody's ammo purchase.

    60 Minutes was there video taping (Philip got his time in) and were seen Sunday filming a Class III, belt feed.

    More AR parts seemed in evidence, many of them Chinese and prices varied wildly.

    O_mama is definitely good for business.

    Saw and visited with a host of friends - doesn't get much better.

    lol, if i had the cash a minigun WOULD BE MINE! Too bad it is only $400,000!

    But, 60 minutes will conveniently leave out key details - drive by journalism.

    So you are saying that if I sell my house I can afford it?

    Have to check with the wife first.

    Ya. I suspect 60 Minutes will play how easy it would be to find a machine gun for sale. But not mention the cost. Most criminals if not all are not going to be so willing to pay out that much.

    Not really. That kind of cash could outfit a small platoon with semiauto M-14 rifles, and no extra paperwork or waiting (provided you could actually find that many rifles in this market).

    Thanks, Reagan.

    Why wouldn't criminals just steal it? No paperwork, either:celebrate
    A law-abiding citizen should be able to carry his personal protection firearm anywhere that an armed criminal might go.

    If you don't mind shooting ammo at more than $5/second! Of course if you could afford the thing in the first place I guess that's not an issue :^).

    How much were they selling loopholes for? I swear those things are harder to find than 30 round Pmags!
