A gyrocopter is a tiny aircraft that looks like a helicopter but is pushed by a rear-mounted propeller while the unpowered overhead blades create lift.

Looks like the news agencies know about as much about aircraft as they do firearms.

Gee Painless, that would seem to be a reasonable discription of the majority of gyrocopters being flown today. It was a little vague and a gyro could be quite large instead of "tiny" but the description was better than most firearms stories by a good bit. What did you have a problem with? Don in Ohio

Sorry, DonOhio39. My mistake. I misread it as saying the vehicle was "unpowered". A careful re-read indicates they were just refering to the overhead blades. Thanks for the correction.

I think a gyrocopter would be cool to [s]have[/s] build. Small Easy to fly Simple Don't need much of a runway

They've been showing a picture in the news, of a Postban AK variant with a thumbhole stock, that was supposedly his also. Is that a Bushmaster bullpup on the link? It looks like it has a birdcage flash suppressor on the muzzle. I was under the presumption that those were all postban. Possible illegal convert? I laughed at the idea that there is conspiracy of gun crimes going up around an upcoming ban, but boy I'm really kinda getting creaped out now. [peep]

Personally, I thought he was just getting ready to have some Industrial Strength Rock & Roll target practice. But a $3 dollar lock? And that note he wrote? America’s Dumbest Criminals has a new Headliner. [noclue]

Probably one of the nutts from ELF http://www.earthliberationfront.com/main.shtml Setting Fires With Electrical Timers - An Earth Liberation Front Guide The politics and practicalities of arson. Down-to-earth advice and comprehensive how-to's about devices, fuel requirements, timers, security and more. Available high quality for printing (17.2 Meg) and a lower quality for reading (2.6 Meg) and more at this web page for eviro-wackoes. Why the ATF has not raided this bunch is a mystery.
