    3. Then we pass a carefully-worded law that makes only certain businesses (wink, wink) eligible to do the stamping "correctly", and everyone on the inside track is already positioned to make bank.

    No. You're both correct.

    The gun would only work for its Judge, and each round was tagged with the Judges DNA.

    Do you really think that a BG can't figure out that it's easier and cheaper to tape a sock to the slide? I mean we all know they're not too bright but it doesn't take a scientist to defeat the purpose.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    The problem with making a nail into a firing pin is that nails aren't made of tool grade steel. Ive made a few and usally start with a drill shank, or an Allen wrench. They are made of materials that will resist deforming. Most of the pins Ive made are for guns with no parts supply tho. ARs are common enough that Brownells sells them for under $10. It would take more than $10 of my time to make a pin, and that doesn't include the cost of the drill rod or wrench that I started with. DR

    It's actually scary and infuriating how true your statement is. Not just relating to guns or gun control, but every aspect of beurocracy.
    Walk softly ...

    I have to agree it would be far easier to just buy new firing pins. In regards to the legality, I think until the micro stamping issue becomes law you would not be defacing the firearms serial number. The lower is the serialized part not the internals.

    My second question is why bother? I have no intention of committing a crime with my guns. If they are stolen and someone used them I don't see my liability going very far and it could lead to me getting my weapon back.
    "A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
