Saw a thread running a poll on banning. I belong to Fifty Caliber Shooters Assoc. I don't have one yet, but I've got a Barrett 99 Bigshot in layaway. Any ideas or facts on when the govt may place a ban on future sales? I'll get it out asap, but $3K is a bunch of mobney and will take me a little while.

Molon Labe: Come and get it. It is greek, the motto of the 300 spartans during their stand against the horde of Xerxes, the Persian emperor. They held against 100,000 foes for several days at the pass, at Thermopylae. They were killed, except for one, whe a greek farmer told the Persians of a goat trail they could use to flank the spartans.

Expect a serious .50 ban effort in DC if there is a successful effort that reinstates the AW ban in '04.

Military Sniper Weapon Regulation Act of 2001 (Introduced in Senate) S 505 IS 107th CONGRESS 1st Session S. 505 To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to regulate certain 50 caliber sniper weapons in the same manner as machine guns and other firearms and for other purposes.

This Act may be cited as the `Military Sniper Weapon Regulation Act of 2001'. SEC. 2. FINDINGS. The Congress finds that-- (1) certain firearms originally designed and built for use as long-range 50 caliber military sniper weapons are increasingly sold in the domestic civilian market; (2) the intended use of these long-range firearms, and an increasing number of models derived directly from them, is the taking of human life and the destruction of materiel, including armored vehicles and such components of the national critical infrastructure as radars and microwave transmission devices; (3) these firearms are neither designed nor used in any significant number for legitimate sporting or hunting purposes and are clearly distinguishable from rifles intended for sporting and hunting use; (continued) (

(4) extraordinarily destructive ammunition for these weapons, including armor-piercing and armor-piercing incendiary ammunition, is freely sold in interstate commerce; and (5) the virtually unrestricted availability of these firearms and ammunition, given the uses intended in their design and manufacture, present a serious and substantial threat to the national security.

Those three numbskulls create bill after bill to ban the 50's. I believe they never get out of commitees but they keep trying. IMHO, Eventually something bad will happen and the bill will pass.

I think they need to actually see a .50 BMG round up close and personal before they make judgements. [:D]

Everyone needs a .50BMG if it makes those three liberal ninnies wet their pants some more. Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

What they've been waiting on is a DemocRAT controlled congress to ram this through. After November, they just might have it. Sadly, there is a drought going on, and the tree of liberty is begining to wither. Edited to point out that this bill would clasify your .50 AE Tromix upper, your .50 Beowolf rifle, and your .50 caliber black powder rifles as sniper weapons, capable of mass destruction at very long ranges.
