Re: What are you shooting?

Since when is an AR pistol completely legal? Register it as NFA firearm and then it's legal. Any clown that's taking a "rifle" receiver, and turning it into a handgun without the Bureau of NAZI's (BATF) knowledge is breaking the law.

They'll probably never find out unless you get into some other trouble and they search your home and /or vehicles. Then your original troubles are compounded.

Or, you could be caught if you're a moron and post pictures and descriptions on a firearms chat forum.

My wife bought that over the counter from our local dealer thru Bushmaster. I had this as a sig photo before someone here got a woody about it and killed it. You need to stop thinking like Zumbo. Bill T.

Don't be hard headed. She bought it over the counter, right? Right. It was manufactured and serial numbered as a HANDGUN so it's legal as a HANDGUN.
We're talking about converting rifles to handguns. It's not legal unless it's BATF/NFA approved, period, no matter how much we wish it was.

Look at Contenders. You can swap them back and forth all day long and the black helicopters won't come. Bill T.

Yes you can swap them back and forth all day, legally, if the Contender or Encore was sold as a handgun. If it said "RIFLE" on the box, you can't LEGALLY convert it.
If it was sold as a rifle, it's a RIFLE. And it's illegal to convert a rifle to a handgun.

I'm not arguing that what your saying isn't correct, I'm sure it is. I just doubt anyone pays much, if any attention to it. Bill T.

Re: What are you shooting?

You were arguing. Now you're back stepping. But you hit the point correctly in that no one pays much attention to Contenders and Encores. That is unless you talk about it, post pictures, etc. Don't be fooled into thinking these forums aren't watched.

Again, no one pays much attention. However, get into trouble for something unrelated and see how fast someone pays attention to your converted handgun. They'll dig up everything they can to make you appear dirty so the original charge sticks.
