    Are you pretty young, or were you not around for the Assault Weapon Ban of 1994 that expired (at the Federal level) in 2004?

    If it's new to you, take a peek here to get some backgroud: Federal Assault Weapons Ban - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I can't afford one of those Assault Rifles with the happy switch. I'll just have to stick to my Sport utility Rifle.

    I like that! I think I'll start calling my AR-15 a Sport Utility Rifle. I would like one with a happy switch though. Who doesn't like to be happy?

    They did it once, they will try again. I doubt it will go anywhere, but by God they'll try.

    Would out be politically incorrect to get a rack for my sport utility rifle and install it in my big old Diesel powered sport utility vehicle?

    Got a new receiver like this one sitting at the Fun Store waiting for me to swing by and pick it up.

    I've got one of them sitting in the safe from the last panic, just about 4 years ago. I suppose I should gather up the bits to do something with it.

    I dunno about 'assault' rifles, but my AR and AK are defense rifles.

    I should build a 12" AR, or a Draco SBR while I have the chance.... but alas, I can't afford it. I am putting serious thought towards a suppressor for my 10/22. Can't afford that either. And if online ammo sales are banned, I certainly won't be able to afford buying bulk ammo. Ammo prices in the store would undoubtedly go up if online sales are banned. I can barely afford ammo as it is.

    I've got a coyote rifle myself. AR with a Hogue forend and a five shot magazine.





    Of course I also have thirteen or fourteen of the thirty round P-mags just in case the coyotes take over the neighborhood.

    That one doesn't have the hole for the go fast switch,I wish I knew then what I know now I would have bought a bunch of guns with the happy switch when they weren't much more expensive than the semi-autos

    I had a, "what if" conversation with my wife recently. We have been budgeting for personal reasons. Shes stubborn but usualy for the greater good. Anyways after the surprisingly receptive talk she said we can make occasional sacrifices for a new gun. Gatta love her.
