..expiration is comming up to its one year mark.

Did you make use of it by buying everything and anything?

Or did it leave you feeling "I have plenty of time now to get the fun stuff." ?

I built a Para FAL and bought a few AR mags. That was it.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 6:03:29 PM EDT
Unfortunatly at the time I was only working 2 days a week (goddamn school) and couldn't afford anything right then. Had to wait until the day before Easter for my Oly Arms.

Collapsing stock for my AR, Ban free AK, and plenty of standard capacity magazines :)
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 6:03:58 PM EDT
money is keeping me from getting everything i want

but considering this time last year i didnt know there was such thing as an assault weapon ban...

im doing pretty damn good
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 6:06:57 PM EDT
Everyone I know is bitching about it and mad that it sunsetted........just kidding!

I haven't heard a word about it from anyone I know or have met.

Just waiting for the streets to run with blood now that the deadliest of weapons are available to the likes of you and me.

Or so the media claimed.

I picked up 2 more AR's. Mags for AR's and 10/22

Then the damn AR's were washed away by the hurrican last week
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 6:24:28 PM EDT
It's been a tight-budget year, but I managed to get a Glock 19 with real mags, and some 25 round Butler Creek mags for my 10/22.

Converted my no-ban Rock River to something more eviler, and bought a butt load of reg cap mags for it. Then I discovered Armalite was selling M14 mags cheap.

So you bought an M-14?
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:17:06 PM EDT
If it wasn't for the sunset, I probably wouldn't have an AR...

Oh boy! I'm glad it ended! I had just too much damn money!

Few NIW Glock mags and such, but mostly a renewed interest in stuff
I couldn't afford for 10 years!!

You have no idea how many folks i would see at the range with post ban receivers and preban uppers.

They didn't seem to know anything about the rifle or its configuration so i am led to beleive they were just uninformed and didn't hang out at ar15.com.

I think alot of people went ten years without knowing there was a ban.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:18:32 PM EDT
It's actually embarrassing how much I have spent on guns & mags since the ban expired. Life doesn't give you many second chances.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:21:08 PM EDT
I "upgraded" some rifles while I was out boating.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:25:12 PM EDT
I'm still waiting for the flood of weapons on the streets like the news media promised....and the lower prices.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:30:19 PM EDT
I have brought 5 AR's into this world, 3 MEGA/Bushmaster and 2 SNS/Colt's...


Im thinking of adopting a Romi WASR in the next month or so...

California is keeping me from doing what I really want - get an early issue AR15. I had one when I was 18, and I didn't realize the value of it when I sold it.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:37:29 PM EDT
Sorry, my AW jumped up and started killing people... I had to beat it down with a fly-swatter.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:37:37 PM EDT
A couple of AR's, a couple extra barrels, a few telestocks, 30 or so 30 round AR mags and a whole bunch of high capacity handgun mags.

Not great, but I did ok.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:38:13 PM EDT
I got a feeling of plenty of time left... Depending on what happens in 2008, we'll see!

Plus, the AWB didn't REALLY do anything other then make the "scary looking" features go away... The guns from the ban era could shoot and kill just as easy as these current firearms? The MAIN thing of the AWB that made me sad was the high capacity ban.

Funny thing though, I was able to source 30 round magazines pretty damn easy when the ban was still in place.

+1

Did my part for the industry (and my fun threshold) and bought an XD40 and an 870. Hopefully I'll be able to buy something next year. Probably an SKS, but if I can swing it I want a CaliFal.

I'm buying a DSA Para-Congo FAL to celebrate.

Been a financially tough year for me... Just squeezing by while getting ready to go back to school. I hate to say it but other than mags and a phantom FS, I didn't really buy too much.

BUT I HAVE A $7K BLANK CREDIT CARD READY IF THEY TRY TO PASS SOMETHING AGAIN!

may take a few years to pay it off in school, but would go on a massive spending sprey if another bill was going up for a vote

Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:42:36 PM EDT
Since the ban ended I have built more AKs than I care to mention and went from owning ZERO ARs to now owning a 16", 20" and a 24". I am not sure I can afford to buy anything new to celebrate. I have been celebrating for the past 12 months.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:45:24 PM EDT
I celebrated just fine
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 7:56:08 PM EDT
I went bonkers: 2 AR's, 2 hicap Glocks, another AR on the way, 1 beta c mag, 20 glock mags, 20 AR15 mags, 10 9mm ar15 mags
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 8:19:03 PM EDT
sold 4 of my pre ban colts in june/July 04 to people who thought the ban would not go anway or did not know it was going away. gotta love auctionarms
replaced it with Bushmasters and RRAs and a couple AKs for about 70% I sold the pre ban stuff for
about the only fucking gamble i have ever won
after the ban i sold my last pre ban to a NY member here for a fair price
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 8:25:09 PM EDT
got 1 ar and a 1911 in the last year

I am still looking for that ice cream truck where the cute little girl got her new AR-15.
Link Posted: 9/6/2005 10:58:34 PM EDT
been broke since the ban!



damn

got : no ban AK, built a no ban AR, got ~70 USGI mags, 20 hi cap pistol mags, and 3 AK drums!

still need more crap!
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 1:17:30 AM EDT
I guess I am gonna put a candel one a cupcake for my little M4gery which was born(built) the day the ban expired. It has gone thru a few changes but still remains pretty much the same rifle in almost the same configuration it was in when built. I guess I will try to make it out to the range and do some shooting to celebrate. Thanks Arvin
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 5:35:27 AM EDT
I bought a DPMS M4 no ban barrel, and attached my one and only flash suppressor to it. Unfortunately, that's about all I can afford to do at the moment.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 5:49:23 AM EDT
In the last year I have purchased:
WASR-10 hicap
CETME and 10 mags
DSA FAL and 10 mags
Bushmaster/RRA 20"
Stag 16"
20 ar mags
Deawoo A1K1
VEPR-K, not that is was banned anyways.

Ya, I have done my part I am pretty broke now.

Need to get:
More Ak mags
ruger 10/22 and some high cap mags
Also might get a glock and some high cap mags
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 5:55:19 AM EDT
Buying as many mags as I can
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 6:06:53 AM EDT



i think my gun and gun-related spending over the last year is probably doing a significant part at keeping the US economy in relatively good shape.

not that that's really changed since before though.

let's get that '86 MG ban gone. then i'll do some SERIOUS spending. M249 here i come!


Link Posted: 9/7/2005 6:12:59 AM EDT
i built this up since then. But I lost it in a boating accident.

How deep was it, and can you provide me with the coordinates of where your AR-15 went down?

Kidding aside, that must have been one of the most miserable moments in your life.

I agree, except for the embarrassed part.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 6:38:18 AM EDT
I was supposed to get one of the legal to own Colt 6721 Carbines back in 1994 from my dealer-nephew/cop, but he screwed me out of it and sold it to somebody else for big bucks. The bastard only came through for me with three 6520's for $715 each . (there were only 134 Colt 6721's available before the serial numbers went into post-ban mode.) There's a guy selling one of these 6721's now on the EE for $3,000 -$4.000

SO THIS TIME I MADE SURE THERE WAS A 6721 AND A 6920 WAITING FOR ME BEFORE THE BAN EVEN EXPIRED. I did ok at $815 and $950


BUY SOON! IT'S A DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT AND A NEW WORSE BAN FOR 2008 !!!!

collapsible stock and some magazines.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 6:47:37 AM EDT
Nothing to any of my own rigs. Since none of my ARs or FALs are AW's, they weren't regulated by the AWB's anyways, and were built with all the "evil" feature's.
I have "de-banned" a FAL and two ARs for other guys who had registered AW's, though.
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 7:09:35 AM EDT
I have gone apeshit!

From M14s to HK clones
From a M11s to M4 clones

No including the thousands I have spent on mags and access. Hell I have mags for guns I dont even own! I have mags for guns that are not even available to the public yet!

Lets not count the stripped lowers hiding in the depths of one of my safes

I never obeyed the law in the first place so the expiration was no biggie to me, fr00t l00ps!
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 7:17:28 AM EDT
picked up another AR, got in on a deal BEFORE the "ban" expired so I didn't have to wait.... was never worried about mags...always plenty of those around ... got plenty of ammo but you know how it is....never enough so I'll be getting some more soon
Link Posted: 9/7/2005 7:22:17 AM EDT
No-ban Vector AK and and Bushmaster M4.

God bless America.

Lots of Hartford 30 rounders, FSB w/ bayo lug, several coll. stocks. I bought my EBR's and their evil accessories for many reasons (self defense, plinking, etc), but I'm also one of the few who believe that the ability to buy these rifles, mags, etc will soon be taken away from us.

The media makes a point to term high-cap semi auto rifles used in illegal ways as "assault rifles". It seems I've heard Ar15, Ak47, SKS, etc mentioned more often in the news...and not in an approving way.

I lost my guns in a boating accident too.
We all did - except our trusty .22 and a .38

I had always been into guns.
When the AWB expired, I remembered "HEY!!! I'm over 18 now, I can buy guns and ammo and shit!"
So I did.
