Have a hypothetical for you NY & NJ guys...


Lets say you could legally buy NFA weapons in your state (specifically machineguns), would you? If you would like to, but cannot because of the cost, please say so. Of course, if you would and could buy machineguns but are only currently precluded by your states' law, please say so.

Good point Aimless...

So lets set an arbitrary $10k threshhold:

...If you weren't precluded by state law, would any NY or NJ residents be ready, willing and able to spend at least $10k for a machinegun or two?

(and just for general price refenence, a non-Colt M16 currently runs about $9-10k, an Uzi about $6k, Mini-Uzi about $7k, M11 about $2500, AK47 about $12k, 1919 about $13k, M60 about $25-35k)

A wood stocked Uzi in .45 ACP seemed to be one of the more balanced bullet hoses I have handled....

If it were legal, could I then convert my Bushmaster?
It seems to me that would be alot less expensive.
$10,000. No I would have a hard time justifying that to myself.

Absolutely!

I'm trying to work out an AOW purchase (probably have more of a problem with the wife than I would with the sign off)

Gonna try and get me an 8-BALL!!! I saw that SERBU also has AOW shotguns. Have to go down to the PD and talk with the Chief.

For once I can say I have some contacts

They wouldn't cost so much if the laws were changed. Just looka t LE prices for them! Pick an M-16 or an MP5, either one for around 750.00 to 900.00 for LE Departments. Maybe, just maybe... in time we can chip away at the NFA Prohabition. And bring the prices down to earth on these fun guns. I have a friend with both an M-16 and MP5 and I really enjoy those three round bursts and mag dumps. I just wish that I could afford to purchase one for myself. But as it stands, I'd rather spend that kind of money on a new car.

I just can't see myself spending $10K on a MG. If I could buy one at $2K, sure. Then I would have to find a place to shoot it. Our range does not allow full auto. (County facility)

If I could I would ...

I'm looking to buy some land in PA so I can go "Full Fun !!"

Short answer: No, I would not buy any NFA.

Long answer: I would just move up my Class 3 collection from Florida. It's tough having to fly 1200 miles to shoot my guns.

One thing you should realize - If you don't buy your NFA today, there's a good chance you won't be able to afford it tomorrow. Prices are going through the roof.

if i had the money and the opportunity, i'd buy a class 3. or, at least i'd like the opportunity to buy one. I don't like the man telling me im not responsible enough. Doesnt ANYONE trust boy scouts any more?
Link Posted: 9/20/2004 3:47:22 AM EST
Yes sir, I sure would, and I can legally get one in my PA apt.

The only thing stopping me now is that I don't have the ability to pay for one :(
