Can anybody tell me anything about any possible bans that are forthcoming on .50's because of the Patriot Act(part of Homeland Security) My dealer has told me this is what he had heard... and I am only 1K shy of buying my project gun after saving for a year. I expect alot of rumor-mill and such but is there any tangible resource to contact other than calling ATF directly to find out. Thanks in advance for any and all information.

I doubt it. They have larger things to worry about then a 50 cal rifle. Your dealer might be trying to scare you into buying one from him. Tell him you will buy it from another dealer. See what he says.

I call...

Sounds like a sales tactic to me.

Commo scare tactic. "Ooooh, buy it now, they are trying to ban it as we speak"

No bans are in the works due to the Patriot Act. But there are plenty of bans in the works due to State acts and one ban introduced on the federal level but it has nothing to do with the Patriot Act per se. Check out thislink for up to date info.
