I suspect the Govt. Looks at this board and they are likely to run sting operations in the EE and do other things but someone starts a thread buying or selling something like this guy wanting to buy a beta-c mag and you point it out, aren’t you interfering with a police sting operation and can’t you be prosecuted for it?

Why would that be a BATFE sting?

There are plenty of Beta mags that are preban and legal for civvies to own.

The guy is stupid for paying $400, since he can wait 2 weeks and pay $250, but other than that, what is the problem?

To put it another way, say there is a hooker standing on a street corner. You have a hunch she is a cop like there are unmarked vans all around her or she looks odd. Would an example interfering be to shout out that she is a cop and not to go near her? Or post a sign saying so?

Why would you want to do something like that?

I think prostitution laws are silly (we all pay for it one way or another), but I've got no desire to interfere in police business.

Or I suppose you are just using this as an example. Either way, if someone is doing something illegal (unless he or she does not know that the behavior is illegal) they are on their own and won't get any assistance from me.

Hit.

I personally don't give a fluck. If I think someone's trolling for a bust, I point it out. Go bother some fucking gangbangers or muzzies. Leave us alone.

I highly doubt the "feds" would troll this board as much as you think...
The membership of this website is pretty well versed in the basic firearm laws (IMHO)...

You dont see many posts like "Hey...Im looking to buy (or sell) an illegal autosear", or "How do I make my AR into a full auto"...or "Ive got LEO magazines for sale".

We are smarter than that...and law abiding, I would like to think.

This is too funny guys. Some of you need ot get out of your LAZYBOYS and quit thinking everyone other than yourself may be a FED. I know this guy personally, does that make me a FED or a snitch or just that I know your full of it?

Christ... I can't even imagine why the Feds would be bothering a bunch of under-sexed old farts sportsmen on a board like this.

Don't they have drug dealers to disarm and sodomize incarcerate?

Gah... what has the government become? BATFE.... pfffft.

No, you cannot be prosecuted for interference, even if it were a sting. If it was a sting, its a bad one.

Hey Now I want a CLEAR Beta C mag- Thats pretty bitchin'. I was planning on getting one after the 14th. But If I really could get a clear one that would rock. Atleast you would know approximately how many rounds are left, Instead of was that 75 rounds and I have 25 left or was that 95 and I have 5 rounds left.







Sting, Why ? Do you think they want to work with only 2 weeks to go, Hell NO!

Now is this was Sept. 15 1994, we might have had a problem.
Link Posted: 8/31/2004 11:43:48 AM EST
Erm, off topic but I don't really trust them plastic mags. Does it have the strength to hold up, since it has to be so thin to fit in the magwell?

It would have to be like the thickness of a regular steel or aluminum mag wall, correct?

The feed tower is prone to cracking (been there done that, got the replacement from Beta).
When $242 Beta-C's are avalible I might buy one again and cut up a cheap 30 round USGI mag to use as a feed tower.

Well, parden the fuck out of me. Since I am a criminal defense attorney in Houston, TX, one of three areas I practice in, I might know a little also at least in Texas.

Hey Balzac, Could the obstruction statute be used like this?

Link Posted: 8/31/2004 1:41:10 PM EST
I can't imagine that warning someone that they are about to commit a crime is a crime. That sounds like simple good advise to me. Not unless you were specifically directed by the agency in question to keep your mouth shut.

I also can't imagine that warning someone that they are stupid to seek out a Beta-C mag two weeks before the ban expires, at almost 2x the new price, is nothing more than friendly.
Link Posted: 8/31/2004 1:42:17 PM EST
It could only be a "sting" if it involved something illegal...
Beta-C's are, and always have been legal...No different than a WTB ad for a 30rd mag...

I don't see what the fuss is about.

Sarcasm is great, but MarkM did not come across that way, given his previous posts on this thread. Maybe he needs lessons in the use of smilies.

Except that you're really dense if you think that's a sting...
