This puts the AR-15 square in the category of a weapon in common usage. If a court has any shred of intellectual honesty, assault weapon bans will be going down across the country.

Forgive me, did I see you put intellect and court/law in the same sentence? That would imply logic, which does not exist with law makers and firearms.

If the court had any intellectual honesty, whether or not something was in common use would be irrelevant.

Last I checked, it was "arms." Not "commonly used arms."

Yes, I have kept up with the reports of AR's in some states. I think it is good overall for the AR community, however, Wal-Mart is a business out to make money. ARs sale, very good, and having them available at Wal-Mart may increase the popularity to a point where they may no longer be seen as an assault rifle, but as a general purpose rifle. I am just saying that Wal-Mart has carried other items that have been banned as well (most by the FDA). Whether they are available at a Wal-Mart will not matter to idiots in political positions of power. That is all I meant....I guess I should have spelled it out better.

The old gun-grabber's mantra "these are the weapon of choice for gangsters and criminals, you don't have to aim you just spray and fire" holds less and less water with the public at large, even those who don't shoot or know much about guns. We forget that when the federal AWB was passed in 1994 the vast majority of the country thought it had something to do with banning machineguns, or weapons only used by violent felons.

Every AR being used responsibly in civilian hands now shows what a lie that was.


Especially since a few manufacturers are marketing smaller capacity magazines and a host of available calibers to fit every need. I have been present in many gang task force arrests, but have yet to see an AR being used by a gang banger....I am sure it has happened, but it is not the norm. I am glad to see that the prices at Wal Mart are not Dirt Cheap (no pun intended to CTD). I feel as long as the prices remain in the realm of where they are at, most will not find their way into the average criminals hand. Perhaps I need to re-evaluate my thoughts as for as Wal Mart carrying them. I do see that a lot of benefit could come to the community, with the AR being more attainable for responsible citizens. I still do not think, however, that they will ever be ruled out of the "Assault weapons" category, but as the rest of you, I remain hopeful.

Well again, we do have an agreeable outcome.....I believe that everyone should also have the 2nd Right, equally as the rich (which I am not). I wish that people would take their money to gun shops or stores, such as your own, where they receive knowledgeable support, unlike Wal-Mart (who is only out for the $$) But the ability to procure firearms takes precedent over worrying about who profits over them. I know that CTD has gone quite a ways to insure that everyone can afford their birth Rights in this country. I admit I can be a bit pretentious, and elitist at times....having people willing to serve all classes of people is vital to the cause. I must say I purchased a Kimber from you a couple of years back, and a HK P7 recently, and I must say that I am impressed with not only your selection, prices, but the knowledge I received from the salesman as well. Given your post in this forum, it is nice to see that some people are out their for more than just the money, and I extend a thank you for that. Keep up the good work.

Of course, SBS's are not in common use because they've been banned for so long(discounting NFA)

Found one in the Prescott, AZ WM this morning. It was a pleasant shock to see one sitting in the display carousel next to a Rem. 700 and other traditional sporting rifles.

Only the unused portion.

I've seen a lot of old coach guns and blunderbusses and most if not all had barrels less than 18". There were a lot of short barreled rifles and shotguns in common usage prior to the 1934 act.

No barcodes...but they do insert RFID tags.

Remove the tag before use. It will chafe your tender parts.
