Firearms and Accessories / Opinions on the Bushmaster ACR?
« on: January 02, 2015, 06:25:06 PM »
Happy new year 2A fam!

This is not a new gun on the block by any chance but was wondering if anyone has any first hand experience with the ACR and what their thoughts were. I saw a few threads here about a recall. This is a older generation, probably first gen ACR basic with the enhanced stock and hand guard. Thanks for your input!

Where are you located? I have a couple 1750 cases if you want to see if it'll work for you.

General Discussion / Out of State pistol purchase from private party
« on: April 17, 2014, 04:45:54 PM »
I searched the forum for answers but I have some unanswered concerns that I hope to get resolved in this thread. Also if this thread belongs in the Legal and Activism section, mods please move the thread as appropriate. Thanks

So here is the situation:

I found a Pistol on that I would like to purchase. We (seller and myself) have agreed on a price but he is inquiring if my FFL will accept shipment from a non FFL. Meaning, he will send it directly to the FFL. First question is if anyone knows a FFL here that will accept that? [18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)] states that a non FFL can ship to a FFL but handguns are not "mailable"  by USPS and that a common or contract carrier must be used. Is that UPS and Fedex?  ???

Would it be easier to have it shipped to Oregon where I have a relative who can receive it as his and transfer it into my name when I get there next month then bring it back to Hawaii as out-of-state then register it? I can still purchase in Oregon as I have a Oregon driver's license.

Has anyone purchased a handgun from a forum or the like? How did you ensure you got the item after paying?

Sorry for all the questions, but I want to be squared away. Thank you for any info in advance!

I'm frustrated I couldn't make it today, my dog injured himself at the park and we are at the vet. Think he might of sprained his front paw. Just waiting for the results now.

I was thinking for these events, we should get a roster of active members and send out mass texts to announce any events. I can see it getting intense in terms of message traffic but might be good for getting a hold of people faster.

What type of firearms are you referring to?  HDF would be a good place to get some tigger time and they have a 101 type class where they go over the basics of both pistol and carbine, and also include a free shoot where they also offer further instruction.

Tons of experience there and everyone is friendly.  Which to me is important.  The last thing you need is someone that is condescending toward you while you are still learning.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!

I am referring to firearms in general (semi auto pistols and rifles)
Friendly yet safe environment is definitely important and condescending people can turn people off to the shooting sport.

Looks like I'm gtg tomorrow for the range day. If I wanted to observe the morning portion is it required to be there at the very beginning for the safety brief? I'm bringing the HK p2k to test out Macsak!   :thumbsup:
General Discussion / Shooting mentor
« on: March 28, 2014, 08:28:25 AM »
hey guys, so I'm a novice/beginner shooter and although I've been into firearms for a while I lack alot of trigger time. When I do get the chance to go out to the range and practice I always think it'd be nice to have an experienced shooter to look to for advice and tips. My pops had firearms but I can only recall going shooting with him a handful of times so I didn't really have experience growing up either.

So my question for you folks is: how did you get introduced and taught how to shoot? For the guys who go to the range often, anyone care to play mentor? I think there's alot to be learned from the elder and more experienced and that's what this is all about. community building.  :shaka:

so in the event of a natural disaster and hypothetically there was a gun grab, the oppressors would have no way of proving if I in fact still have these registered firearms at that time and place. I think I'm gonna transfer my firearms to a relative elsewhere then.  ::)

A little unrelated but what if I flew with my firearms to another state and transferred ownership? Is there a way for HPD to know the whereabouts of that firearms? Especially if the other state doesn't require registration?
