I think Sig still sells the old-style grips. I actually prefer the standard plastic stocks to the pretty rosewood my P226 Elite came with.

Gear and Accessories / Re: Can't Get The Ear Cups Off My Tac 6-S
« Last post by Outbreak on Today at 05:17:21 PM »
I use the gel ear cups on my radio pelators at work, and they are a PIA when I have to replace them.  I tried to put a backup set on my wife's shooting muffs and could not get them on, but it was about 10 F out and I just thought it was the cold.

This is my technique also.  I am on my fourth or fifth set of the gels, seems like I tear them and have the gel leaking out about once a year.  But I wear them for 7-8 hours a day and the gel ear cups are well worth the money.

The gels are well worth the money. I've been wearing aviation headsets from 1 or 2 up to 12+ hours a day for about 14 years, and had the gel earseals almost the entire time. When I found out I could get them for my Peltors, I almost started dancing. The aviation models are pretty durable, but I also take care of them better than my shooting headsets. The first pairs lasted about 5 years on the flying cups, and 2-3 years on my shooters. Makes all the difference on the airplane or the range for 6-8 hours on average.

Skippy could have been from this group. Been a while since I went through that list.

Try crunchyroll.com They have a LOT of the current stuff, as well as some older shows available legally licensed from the creators in Japan. I've been watching a show called GATE, which pits the Japanese SDF against magical monsters. http://www.crunchyroll.com/gate/episode-1-the-self-defense-force-goes-to-another-world-682113 Have you ever wondered what an anti-tank rocket does to a dragon?

R & R / Warhammer 40K roleplaying
« Last post by Adskii on Today at 03:26:11 PM »
I stumbled across this near novelization of a series of role playing sessions set in the warhammer 40K Universe... and then was promptly smacked by my wife as she "knows that giggle, and it can't be anything good"

If you are a fan of roleplaying, or WH40K this should be a fun read for you. The first part is more about the roleplaying, all the other chapters read like a grizzled vet telling you their story at a bar.

I don't think the kids would like this version as much. Was going to put in weirdness, but explosions and gun play make it awesomeness.

Class III / Re: NFA and Resident Aliens
« Last post by StevenTing on Today at 01:30:03 PM »

There's nothing in the law preventing a legal resident alien from purchasing NFA items.  In this regard, the same laws governing a normal handgun purchase also govern an NFA purchase.  If he can legally buy a handgun, he can legally buy an NAF weapon.


-T.

This is the heart of the matter.  If you are not restricted from owning a firearm, you can purchase.  I believe this is the relevant code.

US Code 922(d)  As quoted below.

Quote
(d) It shall be unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person—
(1) is under indictment for, or has been convicted in any court of, a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year;
(2) is a fugitive from justice;
(3) is an unlawful user of or addicted to any controlled substance (as defined in section 102 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802));
(4) has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution;
(5) who, being an alien—
(A) is illegally or unlawfully in the United States; or
(B) except as provided in subsection (y)(2), has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa (as that term is defined in section 101(a)(26) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(26)));

(6) who [2] has been discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions;
(7) who, having been a citizen of the United States, has renounced his citizenship;
(8) is subject to a court order that restrains such person from harassing, stalking, or threatening an intimate partner of such person or child of such intimate partner or person, or engaging in other conduct that would place an intimate partner in reasonable fear of bodily injury to the partner or child, except that this paragraph shall only apply to a court order that—
(A) was issued after a hearing of which such person received actual notice, and at which such person had the opportunity to participate; and
(B)
(i) includes a finding that such person represents a credible threat to the physical safety of such intimate partner or child; or
(ii) by its terms explicitly prohibits the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against such intimate partner or child that would reasonably be expected to cause bodily injury; or
(9) has been convicted in any court of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.
This subsection shall not apply with respect to the sale or disposition of a firearm or ammunition to a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector who pursuant to subsection (b) of section 925 of this chapter is not precluded from dealing in firearms or ammunition, or to a person who has been granted relief from disabilities pursuant to subsection (c) ofsection 925 of this chapter.
