I cut this one down in 1976 or ‘77. Checked with every law enforcement and federal agency I could find in the phone book back then. and Yep, it’s legal.

First time I fired it, the damn breakdown lever nearly ripped my thumb off.

rosebudjim- I used to call it paranoid, now I realize that I’m just cynical.

As far as separating us from our iron, even Obama knows that is a non-starter. The way it works here in the old US of A, once the clamps start coming down, the populace pushes back. It’s still a land governed by the people, for the people, paranoid conspiracy people aside. Even if most are apathetic, when basic rights are infringed, even they get up and vote.

While I agree with the sentiments in this thread, nobody is going to get a look at MY shootin’ irons, except for the muzzle, under extremely bad circumstances. Of course, they will be in the commission of a crime at that moment. Present company is obviously excluded.

@thedude50 – Why? Because opinion! Sigs have an impeccable track record and several of my RPD friends have opted out of the previous Stoeger Cougars, PX4 Storms, and, most recently, Glock 23s (in .45) in favor of a P226. Now that RPD is moving from .40 to .45, they’re all very interested in the new P227 that should be hitting shelves soon.

I, personally, would have opted for the P227 if I didn’t already have a fantastic P229R with TFOs

joein10asee, I believe the removal of the stock may be a violation of federal law even though the barrels is legal length. I know it would be a violation if it were a rifle and it is a violation to add a butt stock to a handgun. Thompson Center has to have 2 separate system for their modular firearms because of that law.

TopamaxSurvivor… BAck when I did that I called every Federal bureau I could. I explained exactly what I was doing and they all said I could cut the stock down to a handle. There was size minimums for the barrell AND as well for the handle. Each piece exceeds the min by 1/4” and that made it 1/2” overall longer than required.

(Back then I had several friends in the Treasury Dept (Secret Service) and they gave me 3 or 4 phone numbers to call and ask.)

You should be safe then. Wonder why TC has to have the 2 systems for rifle and handgun interchangable barrels if you can cut a shotgun down like that? Probably just another mixed up bunch of regs that don’t really make any sense ;-)

Colt .45 1911 commander model in brushed stainless. Real smooth, accurate shooter and very pretty.

My second favorite would be my Ruger .22 target, that thing is a blast to shoot. To break down and clean, not so much. I think the Ruger guys started out making puzzle boxes.

I keep a gun or guns(For unwelcome guests) that seems to be a common thread used in America when talking about gun control I.E I need to have one for protection against , rapists, robbers, etc.
MY question is how many of you personally and I am not speaking about friends neighbours etc just how many of you have used a gun against robbers and won them over or shot them or better still saved you opr your family from iminent danger.
NOw remember just your own personal experiences only.I figure this is so often used as an argument that people start to believe it it will be interesting to hear of your replies let’s set the ball rolling.Alistair

Most of my guns are for hunting, but they would benefit me in a certain type of situation that you have mentioned.

As for the Ruger .22, I got one over the holidays. I disassembled it and it took me 30 min to read the directions to figure out how the dang thing goes back together. lol I agree I think a puzzle box is easier to figure out.

Couple of street “toughs” tried to start something while I was in my car. Reached under the seat, pulled out an 18?? Navy Colt. Black powder revolver, mind you. Held it up and through the Driver’s window. Didn’t say a word, just SLOWLY lowered the BIG ( .454 cal.) barrel until it was level to theirs eyes. Everything turned blurry, as four “tough Guys” dove back into their car and left the area. Good thing too, I would have had to go “BANG<bang>

I told him to freeze then had the wife bring my hand cuffs down from my utility belt and I told him to get down on the ground i CUFFED HIM AND CALLED 911 he was on his third strike I followed up on this by going to court he is now in prison for life well maybe as California just repealed its 3 strikes law foolish people.

Oldest one was about…16. Seems they didn’t like either the type of car i was driving, or that I was driving through their “Turf” . Had the family in the car with me. They start by words and such, one had a baseball bat. Apparently they didn’t think that a ballbat was a winner in a gun fight. Didn’t think they liked a “Dirty Harry” being pointed at them.

If nothing else, I could have turned it around, and “Buffaloed them” with either the barrel, or the grip. It would have left a lasting impression on them. Impression? Skull fractures usually do that.

Unloaded in that the caps weren’t installed. Would have taken…..10 seconds to place a cap.
