As a rule it is easier to count the ones that aren't.

Dr F,

It's tough to tell how big that gun in your picture is without someone standing next to it, for scale.

This S&W 460XVR may meet all your home defense needs:

Credit: Smith & Wesson

SKU: 170280

Performance Center
• Chrome Hammer
• Chrome Trigger with Trigger Stop
• PC Tuned Action

Smith & Wesson's Model 460XVR™ has the highest muzzle velocity of any production revolver on earth. The Model 460XVR™ is so revolutionary that it required an entirely new designation...XVR, X-treme Velocity Revolver. Performance Center guns originate from standard designs or are created from the ground up. From hand-cutting and fitting to fine tuning for precision, these firearms are top performers. Products from the Performance Center are the ultimate expression of old-world craftsmanship blended with modern technology.

The price isn't bad either: $1,617.oo and since it's a single action/double action 5-round revolver, is fully legal to own. Hit any human anywhere in the body with one of those slugs and blood pressure goes right down to zero. No near misses.

If you really want to keep them away hang some of these in your window.

As a bonus people at airport security will be too freaked out to say anything if they're in your luggage.

I guess the risk is that it WILL be an invitation to some.

Edit: uh-oh did I just have a locker blue dildo moment?

Edit 2: I just realized the heeldo may be an excellent finger/fist offwidth crack climbing tool. Think how stylish you'd be wearing two and Da Brim!

Any lawyer in here please advise if fully auto guns are
legal for anybody in the US including military? If so
what make and model and please specify why private
militias or otherwise can't buy fully auto AR 15's
or M16's?

you need a Federal Firearms License or as we call it an "FFL"

The Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 addressed the abuses noted in the 1982 Senate Judiciary Subcommittee report. Among the reforms intended to loosen restrictions on gun ownership were the reopening of interstate sales of long guns on a limited basis, legalization of ammunition shipments through the U.S. Postal Service (a partial repeal of the Gun Control Act), removal of the requirement for record keeping on sales of non-armor-piercing ammunition, and federal protection of transportation of firearms through states where possession of those firearms would otherwise be illegal. However, the Act also contained a provision that banned the sale of machine guns manufactured after the date of enactment to civilians, restricting sales of these weapons to the military and law enforcement. Thus, in the ensuing years, the limited supply of these arms available to civilians has caused an enormous increase in their price, with most costing in excess of $10,000.

I know a couple of people with full autos. I've been told its a six month federal permitting process.

I want one of those AA-12's. But then, it'd just be another expensive toy that I don't really need.

I hope one of those tweakers didn't get him.

You need an assult wepon to deal with a meth head?


Seems like any self respecting climber could take down a skinny sleep deprived loser in a little old fashioned hand to hand combat.

But if near death zombies scare you that much.... know what your made of.

I ended up going with five of the AA12 rigs, two of which I stashed up on the hill above the compound.

Interesting choice...

I like your choice Russ, but why only 5? LOL. Pretty small Zombie army you must be forming down there in the desert. For myself, I went with Vepr 12's. No expensive full auto registration costs. 2 of the 3 we had out on a recent climbing trip, I might have a photo of one on a Fish Haul bag ...I'll look.

I always thought your rapier-like wit and liberal alcoholic host would have been enough.
